    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Some people are lead, some people lead.

    I dress the same as I did 20 years ago, jeans and tee's, same hair style, still think the 928 is the coolest.

    Was this you 20 years ago Ferdie?

    I hope I'm wrong, it'd be great shame for CGT's to spend their lives cruising boulevards, IMO...




    How about this one?

    Strange "moves" to try with a CGT, it's more an old BMW kind of thing, drifting roundabouts

    Very impressive nonetheless, but I still prefer them lapping the Nordschleife, cruising autobahns at 300+kph, ...

    What other possible option is there?

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    I don't think Black/Terracotta is an attractive combination (the dark interior is much more striking), but even so who can argue with personal preference, or deny another's.

    GT Silver is the iconic color in this car, too bad they didn't keep it exclusive to the car (imo)

    Re: Carrera GT Drive!!!!!

    another

    Re: Carrera GT Drive!!!!!

    again

    Re: Carrera GT Drive!!!!!

    The red looks nice, it's the devils choice of car thats for sure

    And if god was to drive a gt it would probably be white!
    Just like in the vid

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    racerx:
    Last week I was watching mechanics take off bottom tray to get at transmission and engine at the local dealer.

    CGT in silver is such a waste.

            Am I mistaken or is this CGT incorrectly mounted on the lift? I thought the CGT required a strap down system for a lift. I recall hearing/seeing this when the CGT's first started arriving in the U.S.

    I'll share some pictures as well:

    Came across this today:


    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    The matte black is so cool. Propably the next Stig?

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Oh! I wish Porsche was in a position to concentrate only on cars like this.Smiley

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Exactly what I thought - the black Stig!

    Great looking car! I love this mat black on the GT!


    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    I still don´t get over this black mat paint. It still remembers me the colour the fenders have on a car after you have to change it because of an accident and it isn´t painted! But the Carrera GT is awesome!!!

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    This black mat is rules... A GT2 must be nice like that too...

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Looks great on a Murci too:

    I'll share some pictures as well:





            

     

    Did you take that picture? Or did I? I remember putting a bunch up of that car, it was at Herb Chambers Porsche in Boston a couple years back. 

     

    Here's a couple CGT pics I took.

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    That picture was mine. I do remember seeing yours though. I was planning on posting more pictures from that same day of the CGT but ImageShack has managed to misplace them! Smiley

     Did you happen to stop in there when a 959 was chillin in the same spot? Smiley


    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    This 959 is still amazing young. Put some other rims on it and change the blurry front light glasses to modern clear glass - Voila, there we go to have an ideal framework for a 997 successor!

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Eunice:
    The matte black is so cool.


         I like it too!!

    Strange,last week i hate the pics of the matt black 997TT,instead i love this one,i don't know if is thanks this one is all matt(wheels enclosed) ,or becouse is a CGTSmiley

    I did! And in fact it should still be there! It's just on display as part of the owner (Mr. Chambers) collection, but I talked to his son at the dealer and he said to me "everything can be had to for the right price!"
