2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Sat May 17, 2014 3:41 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

She's finally mine & I can't believe it's actually happened. The 993's beauty has been growing on me, especially the shape of the door & the stunning wheel arches which on the C2 or C4 S model are nothing short of art.

I'd been looking without any serious intent to buy, and having driven a C2S in October 2013, I felt the pedals and air cooled engine a little too much like hard work. I told myself that my ultra low mileage 996 turbo was a far easier and more punchy car to drive. I also felt, and this is purely personal, that any car owned by 5 or 6 people was not one I wanted to own .. (& I know that should not be the case). I could not understand why such a legend of a car would change hands so regularly.

Then 'my calling appeared', like a magnet to my eyes ! A one owner C4S with 60,000 miles & full service history. I was at the garage within two hours, and yes, the driving seemed a little different. I knew this was my moment, my only chance ! I agreed the price, subject to an independent Porsche centre checking the car.

It was given a clean bill of health. I'm like a kid in a sweet shop every time I think of her or see her gorgeous haunches. Finding a reason to listen to that gorgeous air cooled 6, feel that smooth varioram power delivery & I'm grinning like a Cheshire Cat !

I never thought it would happen ... But am delighted it has !
