    Today I woke up the RS from it's winter sleep. Handed the keys to my eldest  son, who got his licence in January, and sat in the passenger seat. He had been waiting for this day since weeks.... and so did I

    Great pics and sentiment ! I'm sure your son was feeling at the top of the world.

    Great pics and beautiful car. When my son got his license I did the same and I have to admit that it felt like driving in a Tesla with Autopilot on. After a lot of practice and coaching he now drives the RS on track, which in the beginning was yet another level of "fear" :)

    Keeping those testosterone contained is a challenge Smiley  Hoping that with my coaching he will avoid the stupid moves. Next step will be to take him on a track, hopefully this summer. My challenge will be to not vomit in the passenger seat Smiley

    Very nice.

    Is it a PTS-991 Targa or a foil-job?

    For those of us high enough in latitude for this to even make sense, many have been having their first sports car drives of 2021 in the past weeks.  RC posted one in his EVO thread, so I thought this post could be a celebration of warm weather and fun cars. 

    In our case, a first 2021 drive of a 300km loop from home, criss-crossing the major river here, past still-frozen lakes, and a small hydro power plant at a dam.  No green yet, that is still a couple of weeks away, but 16C is fine for summer Michelins....

    For any feeling left out because you live in summer all year long (indecision), or our Aussies for whom it is autumn, feel free to substitute your own milestones....

    Went for a long tour with my friend’s 3.8 964, brilliant little car.

    Absurd to think the red car is the 4 seater of the two. 😂

    It’s a really cool car, modern KW-suspension, Michelin. Cup2 tires, Cup exhaust and a 320hp 3.8 engine. Surprisingly quick car!

    I was intrigued by the Walte Rohrl edition plaque..... That is a Cartronic hot wire MAF conversion rated at 220KW/300PS, so he has gone further with 3.8l and a different tune - fantastic Smiley

    It looks good blush  You must be ready now to put some miles on it after the long winter. How do you like it ?

    Thanks Gnil.

    Was just taking it easy driving around town last night, not high speed.

    But with the manual transmission, NA engine, wind in the hair, it reminds me of the pure joy of driving, something that our kids and grandkids do not know what they are missing.

    I like this car a lot.  Probably the best driver car among new cars for sale recently.  It does not need high speed to offer me the joy.  Not sure if this is a good thing, but I do not have any other car to look forward to.  Most if not all of my future cars will be mainly just appliances for transportation.

    Also, starting Jan 2022, there will be an extra 10% of sales tax for luxury cars and boats in Canada.  If I buy a Porsche over CAN $200K, then the sales tax will be 36%.Smiley
