    To admire without desiring something also means that I will never get it. Smiley

    My philosophy is rather to admire, to desire, to try everything (legally) possible to make it happen but at the same time being happy for others who already made their desires real, without being envious.  Smiley

    Sometimes these lucky bastards are generous enough to let me drive their car(s) and for that, I will be eternally grateful. Smiley Smiley

    Is it in this thread I should post a picture of my pair of Beolab 90's? Smiley

    No, that must be the Boxster thread you are looking for indecision

    Well said SmileySmileySmiley More or less acting the same. I would write the same sentence but replace admire with visualize

    Looks like no one told the Porsche Driver's Selection crew about the last minute decision to bump up the production run. 

    Look at the limited number of 911R models in 1:18 scale

    Are these really 991R ? These have a roll cage, at the front they have the normal bonnet, at the rear they have a GTS-like grill...

    No they are not 991R. They also don't have the bumps in the roof

    Guys, these are 911 R factory prototypes.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    The White and Green stripes car is the first RHD I've seen and I believe the journalists have this as their press car this weekend in Scotland. I hope there will be a flurry of reviews next month ahead of it's UK debut at the Festival of Speed...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Much prefer the GT-silver over White on the R


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    GT Silver with stripes or without?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    I wait mine white with Green stripes and black interior :)
