PostPosted: Mon Dec 21, 2015 2:34 am    Post subject: Some Gratuitous 918 pics and a 40 Jahre plate Reply with quote

I happen to be visiting Naples , Florida (it's a dirty job but somebody has to do it Grin ) and I called by the local Porsche dealer to have a look around. They have a least 20 new 911's of various models on the forecourt ready for sale, but a local resident happened to drive in with his 918 for a service. Well if you can afford a 918 then why not have it in "plum" colour.
I got chatting to another guy there who had a 40th Anniversary car with this registration plate, Ian (Moorhouse) is this your pal from the internet ?

Enjoy.....

Hi John,

Great pics, so is this what you do when you get on the road? Are we to expect a rust free import from the States in the near future? Was Mrs Porschekit at the mall?

Merry xmas, from a cold wet and windy blighty!

Cheers, Keith.

Greetings, gents:

Ian - I checked the Registry records and I do not show a 40th in Florida with that plate. Note also the aftermarket exhaust tips. That may help identify it.

Porschekit - I am Ian's internet pal but that isn't my car. I live in the State of Missouri in the USA, although I have been to Naples, Florida many times as my wife has family who live in that area. My plate is very similar to that one - see the pic I posted. Did you get any more details about that car or its owner when you were chatting with him, or maybe some more pics? I would like to be able to make contact with him about the 911 40th Registry. You can message me here or you can reach me at 40jahre911@gmail.com.

Cheers, gents.

I didn't get the gentleman's name since we only chatted for a few minutes, but he did tell me that it was a factory fitted special stainless steel exhaust, with twin pipes although not a sports exhaust, and that the wheels were satin brushed steel, also factory fitted. See picture. He had a grandson that worked at the Collier REV's museum in Naples by the name of Andrew Long. Maybe you can get a steer from there.

cheers.
John H.

Ted,

The other way is call the Porsche dealership at tel:+12392805100, it's on Route 41 the Tamiami trail. In my picture you can see the gentleman walking from the showroom to his car while I was taking the pic. They are bound to know him and / or the plate. He lives down there for a few months of the year but is from up north. He has an Aston Martin and several other cars but he says he is a Mercedes fan. Happy hunting.

John.

John - I spoke with the owner's grandson yesterday by phone and have emailed him the information about the 40th Registry. Thank you so much for your help!

Ted
