Hi Cableguy,

Yes, my car had been at Porsche Teesside for it's oil change & service before she gets put away for the winter. Also it was good to catch up with a few of you as they always look after PCGB R3 in there, bacon sandwiches and coffee for attendees.



While my car was in I asked them to renew all the door felts & seals which is one of the few jobs I hadn't previously sorted. The door open with the satisfying Porsche "pop" now. It's never going to be quiet in the cabin but there's less wind noise coming from the top of the window frame when I'm driving, every little helps Grin







And finally before the covers went on after she was dried out a good wash down, over and under and a vacuum.









It's been a great summer and it was topped off by taking part in the Tunnel Run finishing off in Amsterdam late September













It was a good to catch up with Frank Cassidy, his Black Betty and mine have a lot in common and we shared some ideas in the early days. Frank as some of you already know is developing a fantastic new Porsche facility in Bucks. look out for Boxengasse, it's going to be "the go to place"!.

If I have time I'll put up a few more photos from Amsterdam later.

Cheers for now,
Paul

Hi All,

So here are a few pics from the Tunnel Run or Tri-angle of Madness depending which way you look at it.

Run by Tom at Onassis Porsche and held at the back of September with cars converging from Antwerp and Dusseldorf into one huge meet in Amsterdam, about 270 turned up. The cars are mainly outlaws or modified cars although there were others along for the ride.

Lots of enthusiastic people sharing similar visions and new friends made.



































Hope you enjoy the photos.

Cheers,
Paul

Hi Gaz,

Yes it's his Autofarm 4.0, quite an animal. A stunning looking one at that and I thought the way the sun was on it I could have eaten it Grin

Cheers,
Paul

Hi Gaz,

Yes Frank certainly has and good luck to him. It's good to see a real enthusiast putting his money where his mouth is. He had a successful importing business which he sold and he is now surrounding himself in his passion.

Speaking of surrounding oneself in passion, I'm looking forward to my new 991.2 Carrera 4 GTS arriving this month Cool

I'll let you know how I get on.

If anyone's interested in the spec. sheet I'll put it up.

Cheers,
Paul

Very well thx Paul.

Nice spec. Jet black? Love that.

Now, two questions:

1. Is this a swap for the Macan?
2. Why no manual?

👍👍 Joe

Hi Joe,

It's a long story but one which which happened really quickly. I was at OPC last week with the 964 giving her a service and new door seals as per previous post before she goes into hibernation. They asked me if I would sell them the Macan Turbo. I had no intentions of changing but said they would put together a really good deal if I would sell them the Turbo PP as it's "quite a rare car" and well spec'd.

That's when the problems started, we all there are no new Macan Turbos and they know first love has always been for 911's anyway. They also know my wife has a big 4WD and we have a Skoda Yeti for trips to the dump, so I possibly wouldn't need much pushing back into a sports car frustrated

The magic "GTS" was whispered. I've driven a few of these and you can believe all the hype about them being the sweet spot in the range, they are beautiful to drive and to live with. I grinned, nodded and was catapulted up the list for my favourite driving car. They wanted my car before the winter for obvious reasons.The already spec'd GTS comes in later this month.

I didn't need to think to hard, I paid the deposit and that was that wack
A manual would have been my pick and possibly rear wheel steering but that's about it. I like the stripped back interior of brushed black anodised aluminium trim with Alcantara. Black, on black, on black, an architects car, eh Joe? Grin

You may have noticed they also took off the Alcantara steering wheel for a leather one. Alcantara steering wheels are designed to be used with driving gloves and OPC's like to spec cars for when they get them back, so it's a no no for them. No sweaty palms nooo Grin Apart from on GT3's, RS's etcetera which hardly matters.

I am considering putting on a carbon heated wheel again which would be the only concession to the carbon exterior mirrors. I'm still thinking about that one as it's not simply matter of paying the £360 or so from the spec. list.

Watch this space

Cheers,
Paul

What a fab story. This is why I don’t visit OPCs. Floor

The pdk will be sublime.

I’ll bet the car is a beauty. And here this month? How exciting. I wonder if/when they first planned this trap for you Grin

Will you also stick winters on it then?

Funny, a pal has a yeti as his alternative car to his 993 C2, 997 Turbo, and 991 GT3 RS.

LOOKING FORWARD TO PICS.

Hi All,

Joe,

The GTS will arrive around 20th of this month, I don't think I've ever bought a car as quick, apart from when I bought a mini-van for £15 from a bloke in a pub when I was 18, and drove it home. He wanted £50 for it but I didn't have any more Grin

Yes, winter tyres are going on it, I'll sell my Macan spare winter set. The PDK is fantastic, I loved it when I had a GTS on the track, with the manual on the track it was harder work but more fun on normal roads. The PDK is still quicker though and a lot easier in traffic. So for track and traffic I suppose it's the best option. It's been brilliant in the Macan Turbo.

Chiefy,

Thank you! It had nothing to do with me Grin

How are you Sir? I'm sure that's not true as your OPC will be able to tell you are a gentleman of considerable means, you probably dodge the sales people
Wink

You know where to come if you need a coffee anytime, or something a little stronger perhaps Wink

MC,

Thank you kindly Thumb

I'll put up a few pics when I get it, maybe a short walk around video if I can be bothered Dont know

Cheer for now,
Paul

Hi,

I'm thinking they may have got it wrong when ordering the steering wheel, it just says, "Heated Multi-Function Steering Wheel" so it's most likely that it will be an Alcantara but heated. I think they should have ticked the "Heated Leather" option.

Happy with that though if I'm correct since Alcantara is what it's supposed to have, I won't bother with the carbon heated wheel now. Grin

Cheers,
Paul
