    That's what we like to see, a little bit of Sky and a little bit of sky. kiss

    Sky had an active day yesterday --  The Managing Director of Crewe of Sky, Dr. Dean, made a house call to check over his pal, add some meds, he's lookin' good!  Sun skyped in to get the word.

    Sleeping 21 hours a day, but healthy just older.  Smiling and munching happy as can be.  Here's one of the nurses  [2 human, 2 canine, 2 feline] checking on him:

    Hopefully, when I'm Sky's age, I'll be able to sleep 21 hours a day and then be attended by feline (adjectival definition #2) nurses, after which, I'm sure I'll be ready for some ribeye.

    Is the Jeep a Macan replacement?

    The Jeep is indeed the 4WD selected which is great on Jeep trails, which we finally realised is why they are called "Jeep Trails" on the maps in USA.  Same thing here called "Station Track".  The RR dealer Archibald and Shorter was so incompetent, we cancelled that and went Wrangler.  Easy to turn around where nothing else can and amazing off road.

    What a joke Porsches' current [soccer mom]  "trucks" are, and imagine what a great product a Porsche Jeep Wrangler would be,  Way Back In.  Two ends of he spectrum:

    Hi Watt. Finally caught up on your posts what and adventure you are having!

    Just a few corrections (but I accept off topic). Both my and Richards car are on 3rd engine (if you account the original recall). Both cars were manufactured in Nov 2013 so we are the first delivery owners of these cars in NZ. Both cars replacement engines were E series and both failed shortly within each other (mileage and use) a few weeks ago and were replaced by G engines. I cannot tell the difference between the engines other than the G engine uses much less oil. It has a number if internal improvements (essentially it is the RS MA176 engine other than capacity increase alterations and crankshaft). Only time will tell but while Porsche keep supplying me compensation and new 9000 rpm engines I will continue to run them to redline as often on the track as I can LOL!

    Also to save my pride only my GT3 was officially faster on 3 out of 4 of the tracks we ran by roughly around 1s per minute of track. The same applies for Hamptons. The exception was Highlands with the "bus stop" the fastest straight was 185 kmph compared with say Teretonga which was 237 kmph in the GT3. That plus the flip flop mid mid field slow complex worked in favour of the GT4 for sure and it was a second faster here. The GT4 has needed alot of negative camber for tyre wear, the GT3 is stock. Leong is an exceptional driver however and very good on 2 wheels too! Richards car was on MPSS tyres that had already done 8000km in the SI during the 2014 SI targa....

    Enjoy the drives & scenery and see you in Malibu :-)

    There is a certain resemblance.

    The GT4 is really an excellent track and road car, and the smaller lighter sizing very handy compared to GT3.kiss  Good show Porsche, now fix the fg gear setsmiley

    Sky is getting more focused on passing on his driving expertise  and bossing Sun around trying to get his skills sharpened up.....  Sun has gotten sloppy and out practise he thinks -- rightly soSmiley

    Slammin' the B roads and superb winery lunch with the Porsche Club.  Lots of intricate narrow B's very funwink.  The DSC suspension controller has had a positive effect on handling in Sun's first test day written up on the GT4 threadskiss
