    SO GLAD I found this website/forum

    Hi guys,

    I started to read the forum a few weeks ago so I think it is time now to introduce myself. I live in Paris area and as lots of us I am a Petrolhead. Since 6 years, my baby is a 964 C2 from Sept. '93, she is polar grey with blue leather and has full history. She started her life in Turin and since I bought it in 2007, we drove a bit more than 50,000 km :-)

    Now she is back with original orange OEM parts for the turn signals :-)

    More than every thing, I like car racing (unfortunately not my self except time to time with few friends during club track days) and mostly endurance races: classic cars, VdeV, ELMS, ALMS...

    Well what else? I am a big fan of Porsche and guess what especially the racing ones starting with the 904gts... my favorite one is the 2.5 ST... but I am afraid it gonna stay a dream...

    I am lucky enough to have a very good friend of mine whose job is involved with... car racing and especially Porsches ! His shop is litteraly next door and gosh... it is more like a small Porsche museum.

    As said, very glad I found the forum, very impressed by all of you knowledge and passion. The level of accuracy of the  information exchanged is very impressive!

    Weel done.

    Fred.

    Welcome. Smiley

    I think the main difference between Rennteam and other forums is not nationality (we have many French and other nationals here in the forum, something we are particularly very proud of...the international community) but the fact that many users here are also owners of fine sports cars and not just the typical Playstation crowd you have in many car forums. Smiley Those who haven't a sports car are usually very knowledgable based on their job and/or background, so this is very helpful too. It is also interesting to learn about the opinion of those who actually aren't directly involved with certain products and/or reading the thoughts of one brand owner about the other brand.

    Again...welcome and I apologize for some of the current technical issues with the forum software (if you encountered them).

    @911ster: Your car looks fantastic,as I am a lover of the silver colour on Porsche. The Carrera decals suit it a lot.

    I am happy to see people who appreciate classic and older car. Smiley

    Re: SO GLAD I found this website/forum

    @ RC. Thanks for the welcome,and I can only agree. One of the forum I am in was pretty cool at first when mostly owners and real passionated guys were involved. Step by step playstation players as you call them ( love it)  or car spotters came along... Well the forum is not as good as it use to be. No worries for the technical inconvenience ;-)


    Re: SO GLAD I found this website/forum

    @ Reginos, thanks! I love this polar silver especially with the Carrera stickers


    Re: SO GLAD I found this website/forum

    Welcome to Rennteam  911ster Smiley your 964 is magnificent, and with your love of Porsche you'll fit in here just fine. I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do. Smiley

    Re: SO GLAD I found this website/forum

    Welcome from a member who has spent the last two weeks enjoying Paris - i have been wondering where are all the Porsches in Paris?  Have only seen maybe two, but admittedly we are spending all our time in arr 2-7, so perhaps this is considered a war zone for sports cars...

    @ 4trac'. That's weird. 2nd definitely not the best place but the 7th is usually pretty good. The right places are 5, 6, 8, 16 and a part of the 17...


    Re: SO GLAD I found this website/forum

    Welcome de Hollande Fred!
    Hope you'll enjoy your stay here. Magnificent car as well, excited to see another 964 here, always loved that generation a lot!
