This morning I nipped out to get some milk and in the journey of 3/4 mile I saw the following
991.1 GT3 Yellow
997.1 Turbo GT Silver
997.1 C2S Grey
996 C4S Blue
I couldn't have been on the road for more than 90 seconds. I wish I could have taken pics of them all as in the sun, they looked amazing. Anyone else noticed an increase of exotica on their drive in?
Who's taken theirs to work today. Post a pic if you can of it in the sunshine. Thumb

Mine's outside in the office car park.

Picture if you can a grey 996 C4S in an office car park, surrounded by scantily clad beauties from a nearby recruitment company catching some rays on their lunch hour (OK I made the last bit up, well the beauty bit at least)

I use my turbo as my daily, do 15000 miles a year. Havent noticed an increase of exotica on the roads yet. The only other porsches I ever see are 2 boxsters also on their way to work, certainly no 911`s!

Have noticed a massive increase in motorbikes though this week. First bit of sun and everyones out on their bikes.

2 Mclarens and a Ferrari on the way home. Off down to a local boozer in an hour and there may be some nice motors there.

That's a thought.......if you drove at the speed of light, would it prevent you from getting burnt?

And on another side note.......you're gonna love this Frank. I was out tonight with a mate who's owned a few VW Karmann Ghias. He stopped counting a few years ago after 200!! Surprised
