Whilst reviewing some recent tour pics it dawned on me that it's actually quite rare to see a 911 in an environment populated by ordinary cars.

Certainly 99.5% of my photographs show 911s on their own or in a line with other 911s.

I was quite surprised to note just how compact my car looks in this picture - especially as the cars either side aren't ones that I'd ever considered to be big cars.

Lol, very compact, it also tickles me when the 991 is described as a big car Grin

It is, compared to a 996 Very Happy



That said, if you look at a 996 next to a 993 or an earlier 911 even they look big.

No picture but I also have a Landrover and when I part near that and get in my 911 the Landrover towers above me!
