    100'000 km!

    My Turbo's getting old... But still in good shape!
    Greetings,
    --Pierre

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Look at the bright side of it.
    900,000 km more, you can sell it as a brand new 0.0 km car.

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Impressive Pierre,
    Did you buy it new?
    How long has it taken you to cover those 100,000 kms?
    Good stuff,
    That's what they're made for
    Fanch.

    Re: 100'000 km!

    I bought the Turbo second-hand in May '01, and it had 7'800 km. The first owner got it on August 30th, 2000, I think.

    So it took me almost exactly 22 months to cover these 92,200 km. Needless to say, it's my daily driver, and we go out under any weather conditions. Besides that, this car loves to go to the track...

    --Pierre

    Re: 100'000 km!

    100'000 km?... That's nothing!

    Just broke the 120'000 barrier (74'580 miles). Still going strong.

    --Pierre

    Re: 100'000 km!

    another nice one...

    Re: 100'000 km!

    And here's the next milestone... Still running strong!

    Greetings,
    --Pierre

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Still on the same engine? Wow, not bad Pierre.

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Same engine and same clutch, yeah. But countless brake pads and discs!

    Re: 100'000 km!


    Pierre,

    138 km/h at 5400 RPM... you have to be in 2nd gear in full swing acceleration... not so easy to take the picture....

    Congratulations, I love to see people not being affraid to drive their Porsche as a daily driver and not keeping it as a piece of jewelery in their garage...

    Enjoy many many more kilometers with this wonderful "driving machine" (oups !!!)


    Re: 100'000 km!

    Thanks!
    I think I was in 3rd gear. The idea was to be at 140km/h, but I nearly missed it...
    BTW, there's a little story about my car there.

    Greetings,
    --Pierre

    Re: 100'000 km!

    An interesting and joyfull driving report, thanks! I didn't encounter one with a higher milage during my search for a used 996turbo.

    Thanks Pierre. Very nice.

    I've only got one word for you

    Respect!
    I just read your story! fantastic man!
    Great write up, thanks!
    Just out of curiosity, do you know the length your turbo was lowered by with the H&R suspension kit?
    Did that void warranty?
    Just in case I find a fantastic deal on a second hand Turbo and that X74 is not retrofitable (BTW, anyone knows if it is?)
    Thanks,
    Fanch.
    PS: Are interested in doing the Rallye de Paris this year? (March 04 I think)

    I think it is not

    Re: I've only got one word for you

    Guys,
    Isn't H&R off. porsche supplier of X74 parts?
    Or is this BS?

    Brilliant! Pierre, you are "roll model" Porsche driver

    Nice..

    Very nice Pierre.

    I thought I was doing pretty good at 80,600 km but I'm not even in the same league as you!

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Thanks Pierre for the story! Great man great car!!

    Ciao
    Etienne

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Almost exactly 13 months after having crossed the 100'000 km mark, my Turbo now passed the 160'000 km one!... Yes, that's 99'440 miles! I didn't have my camera on this occasion, so you'll have to trust me on this one.

    And the babe's still doing strong. With the stock engine, it was able to beat a 360 Challenge Stradale on the main straight (rolling start) at the Nürburgring last week-end.

    Top speed is still above 310 km/h (indicated), and seems to be as easily reached as it was one or two years ago. The clutch is still the original one, which can't be said of the brakes...

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Congrats!!! Very impressive pierre

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Congractulations Pierre.

    By the way i loved that videos of you drifting in the snow, very very cool.

    Woshhhhhhh.

    Respect!

    I have great admiration for you Pierre, seriously,
    That's how it should be driven, congrats!

    I don't deserve it!... I'm just sitting in there, you know. The car does the rest.

    Oh, and I've overlooked your previous post, sorry. No, the H&R setup didn't void the warranty. I don't know the exact height difference, but it's now about as low as a GT2.

    Greetings,
    --Pierre

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Pierre,
    Great picture! Congrats on the car.

    Re: 100'000 km!

    Do Porsches with such high mileage have any interior rattles?

    Absolutely nothing on mine! Even the sunroof is making absolutely no noise.

    --Pierre

    Re: 100'000 km!

    The perfect car for me then!

    Re: I've only got one word for you

    Hi Pierre,
    It's nice to meet old friends when on foreign ground! Good to see you here.

    Here's the next milestone...
