2007 Porsche 997 Turbo

PostPosted: Sun Mar 03, 2019 1:23 pm    Post subject: 997 turbo out of hibernation Reply with quote

After 4 months of hibernation I unplugged the trickle charger and checked the tyre pressures and set off for a 200 mile blast in the turbo yesterday. What a treat. I dad forgotten how impressive the car feels compared to the daily Euro box comuter. Get out there guys, you won’t regret it!

I'll be driving mine for the first time in months on Thursday.

I've had it for 4 years and I'm wondering just how much I'd become complacent about its capabilities. Dont know

It’s slate grey, and thanks.

Yeah had mine 4.5 years now and love getting back in it after a little time away. It’s like having a new car again. Can’t wait to get out in it again.

Cheers the Abarth is a giggle to buzz around in locally. With the company decals on and the roughty exhaust note, it gets more attention than the turbo!

Thsnks yeah the breaks are ceramic and the yellow matches the inside details.

The missus also loves the Abarth so that’s a double win!
