    A simple photo....

    Went to Lisbon, last 21st of Februray to an Education Course in Companhia de Seguros Tranquilidade.... and i checked a couple of cars for some friends of mine in Sport Classe....

     

    Here´s a photo of my dumb face and a beautifull 993

    P.S.1 - Thanks to Mr. Miguel of Sport Classe for receiving me....

    P.S.2 - Sport Classe is an  Indepedent Porsche Specialist here in Portugal...They are phenomenal....The Shop is owned by the son (Mr. Jorge Nunes) of a great Portuguese Rally Pilot (Mr. Americo Nunes)... Beside fixing Porsche´s, they also collect Porsche´s and other fabulous cars... I recommend a visit to   www.sportclasse.pt....

    Haha, nice one Paolo, did you end up buying it?
    Even though I am just a youngster, who started liking porsches at the end of the 993 generation/beginning 996, I have a weak spot for the 993... hope to be owning one one day!

    Re: A simple photo....

    Hey Joost....not much time... I went to see 2 cars...the 993 (by the way, it´s from 1994) in the photo and a 964 cabrio  from 1991....unfortunally i wasnt checking the cars for me...the 993 for a friend of mine and the 964 for my dad....none of them had decided yet but i´m making my fingers crossed for the 964...

    It´s interesting that later on, i had the chance of seing a 993 from 96 (varioram model) and the 993 from 1994 sounded better (both cars we´re stock)....i had red that the non varioram model of the 993 sounded better than the varioram and i can confirm that he does sound better...go figure


     

    By the way, the correct site is www.sportclasse.pt (put dots in front of .pt that arent there in the first post.)

    Here´s a photo of the 964 by the way..

    Re: A simple photo....

    This is going off post but ...it´s no optical ilusion....(in the photo)...one half of the lake is blue and the other half is green...

    Legend says that...

     "The ancient story, recounts the tale of a bad-tempered widower King and his daughter in a Kingdom in the Western Sea. He was a King, Lord of Alchemy and sorcerer, who lived exclusively for his daughter, Antília, and who would not let the Princess speak to anyone. Apart from the King, the Princess was raised by an old nurse, after the Queen had died. As the years progressed, the princess grew-up to be a beautiful young woman and able to attract the attentions of any boy in the kingdom. However, the King restricted her movements to the castle and garden, and few ever saw her. But, un-intimidated by her father, and with the help of the nurse, she escaped to the local hills and valleys, as her father slept after his lunch. During one of her escape adventures, she heard a song: the music was beautiful and enchanted her to follow it to its origins. Hiding from view, the princess found a young shepard playing a flute, sitting on top of a hill. For weeks she returned, listening to the young shepard, until she was discovered behind some bushes. The shepard boy fell in love with the princess, and they continued to meet afterwards, talking, laughing and enjoying each other's company, until the boy decided to ask the princess in marriage.

    Early in the morning, the couple knocked on the door of the Castle, and asked the servants to speak to the King. Very nervous but determined, the shepard asked the King for his daughter in marriage. Reacting angrily, the King refused and expelled him from the Castle, and forbade his daughter from seeing the young boy. Not wishing more ill-feelings, she followed the orders of her father, but met secretly with the shepard that afternoon in order to tell him that he would never see him again. Antília and the shepard boy cried all afternoon, embracing, and their tears formed two beautiful lakes, one green eye, for the Princess's eyes were green, and the other blue, for the shepard's eyes were likewise colored."
     

    It´s a beautifull story....

    Woshhhhhhhh
