    Looks beautiful! The deviated stitching and the carbon is stunning. It's already pleasure watching it, hard to imagine how fascinating the drive is! Enjoy and drive safely!

    Re: I thought this day would never come

     Reading this I hope you found a 70 year old rich girlfriend who drives a Turbo!  

    Nice ride in any case, scenery I'm not that sure about.

    Re: I thought this day would never come

    My trailer idea did not not go well when my farmer friend saw the size of it he went mad saying i would need planning permission for a mobile home that big and it could not stay here ,

    So sold it back to the dealer i bought from as quite a loss,

    I then bought a holiday home on a park whitch i am happy with,

    Things went much better with my 997 turbo :]

    Its a 2007 model with 10000 miles on it when i bought it from Porsche Swindon,

    As you can see the spec is great carbon , red stiching and belts , polished wheel centres , sports adaptive seats , leather bound centre console , 6 speed , sports cro ,

    I did a track day at my local race track Brands Hatch kent on my birthday 20th may

    Thanks to Porsche GB owners club arranging everything,

    I just cant belive how amazing it is every time i am about to drive it i get a rush even after 3 months of owner ship,

    The only problem is i have done 6000 miles in 3 months lol ,

    I just can stop driving it , i look for any reason to use it ,

    Worth every pound ,

    Its not offten the realality it better than the dream but in this case it is by far ,

    cheers

    I appreciate everyone who lives by its own rules, as long as respect for each other is preserved.
     
    In life, there are always two roads to follow, the road which everyone goes where the rules and options are imposed by society, and our own road which is driven by our dream.
     
    The first road is the easiest one, the safest one, the road known to be the best because it doesn´t have any potholes, there are gas station everywhere and assistance if you needed. . But this road ´doesn´t give you any rush, it´s predictable, it´s a  straight four line highway with no curves, up hills or down hills, but even so, you wont be able to go more than 120Kph. The views in this road is concrete buildings after concrete buildings, no tries or green forest to see. On this road you´ll have plenty of traffic because it´s the road everyone chooses to go, and you are just one more human in the middle of the crowd, there´s no emotions at all driving thru it, but still, it is said by society to be the safest one for you and your family to go...is it really????????
     
    Than we have the second road. On this one, you will be all alone, everyone will say not to follow it because it´s an unknown road and there might be many dangerous while driving thru it. On this road you only have one lane and there are some potholes, there´s no safe net, no space for errors,...but... there are plenty of demanding curves and fascinating up hills and down hills, the scenery is amazing with sea from one side and the mountains in the other,  it will be exciting to avoid those damn potholes and you can go + 300Kph if you want... this is the road of your dreams, and because your dreams feed your mind and body this is the road some people choose to go.
     
    The courage to choose our way while respecting other´s people options, and not going with the crowd just because it´s the "political right decision", its what makes us stand out from the crowd, its what makes us feel "alive", its what makes us humans, and not animals.
     
    I wish you many happy miles with your car... keep yourself  "alive"...be and feel human Smiley

    Re: I thought this day would never come

    good post ^^ and good thread. It's a great looking car. The red contrast is very nice.

     

    My 928 has been better than I had hoped too.


    Re: I thought this day would never come

    Re: I thought this day would never come

    DT - i missed this thread on the 1st round: smart move on following through notwithstanding the intital well intentioned responses/concerns/advice from the other members.

     

    Basalt Black i presume? that interior is stunning; i particularly like the painted centre console in that interrior; the Vulcan grey can look a little cheap.

     

    the sound in those babies as you go from 3k rpm and fly past  the 4k rpm band is like nothing else imo. so different than hearing the sport exhausts of my current machines.

     

    great other little touches on the car - clear side markers; the alu treatment on the mirror lower wing. 

     

    i say to grab that adaptive sport seat, sit inside and enjoy a small glass of port.
