Thanks for the download - very interesting.

I note the copy was as cheesy back then as it is these days! e.g. "Imagine the apex of a tight curve and the steering wheel of a Porsche in your hands."

BTW the "Thumbs" link didn't work for me - if you take a copy of the file "index.html", copy it and paste it as "993 carrera brochure (medium size photos).html" [remembering to delete the original of the latter first] all should work as intended.

A little harsh Abdul,

I remember seeing that on release and thinking, "jeez would'nt it be wicked to afford one of those" In fact, seeing it again yesterday made me want to buy mine all over again.

Yes me too - even though it's the North American version with the derated engine spec (and were the gear ratios the same?)
