    Awwww, toooo bad. But it is good to see she's all plugged in and being taken care of.



    Matt C - When do you collect it?


    I have collected it on Dec 14, 2005. Drove it for two days and then the snow and the salt and the gravel came. Which is why is has been stored ever since. Believe me, I pray every evening for an early spring .

    Re: How About a 997 "Centerfold" Thread?

    Matt that's tough and from what I hear Switzerland has had heavy snow in the Alps this year so may be a long time until you get to take her out again. You'd better be into your skiing and snowboarding!

    My pin-up changes daily, but it was all about Manthey this week (until the GT3 shots escaped, anyway):



    Can you tell us more about this fantastic 997? What has Manthey done to it and where do they get those fabulous wheels? What size are they?

    Re: How About a 997 "Centerfold" Thread?

    Ah. About that... I feel I should 'fess up: that picture is a photoshop.

    The wheels & front splitter are Manthey items, though. The magnesium wheels are specially made for Manthey by BBS Racing. They are only made in 18 inch, as Olaf Manthey believes that any larger "creates more problems than it solves". He is also a great believer in reducing unsprung weight - those wheels are just over 7kg a corner, compared to 11kg for the GT3 wheels from Porsche.

    The splitter is carbon fibre. You can see all of their products on their website at www.manthey-motors.de

    There is an article on Manthey's 996 GT3 in this month's Total 911 magazine.
    He's got some good chat, especially like his focus on "performance and driving qualities, not posing". Doubt you'll be seeing any 20 inch chrome spinners from Manthey...

    He actually predicted Porsche would stick with 18's for the 997 GT3... could it be that they too have been seduced by fashion? (What do the 997 Cup cars use ?)

    The white 997 is for sale on the Porsche Japan website. Best colour IMNSHO.

    Here's Manthey's 3.9l take on the 997 (there are lots of magazine reviews in PDF format on their website, although they are mostly in German):
