Who owns this A red 993 convertible reg M777 MJH?

They might be interesting in seeing this video of how their car has been driven in the past. DVLA says its still on the road and just been MOT'd

I remember when I first saw that video... pure madness nooo

The car in question is still in use according to the Motor Insurance Database. Surprising really, as driving like they do I thought he/she would have written it off by now!

A bit marginal, to say the least, particularly the undertake at -6.38.

Bike speedo is KMH though, not that it makes it a lot better.

Must have been a long time ago, judging by the other cars on the road.

The person driving the 993 should be hung up by his balls and left to dry....... he was driving like an absolute (insert rude word here for female genitalia) ....... thing is he would most probably have killed someone else along with himself ....... shoite like that makes me fume ....... Sad

Whoever was on the bike was a bit of an 'end' as well.

Daughter's just passed her test & it scares me to death to think of heroes like them out there.

Lack of attention by other road users also of concern.

My neck of the woods Worksop bypass this was filmed some 20 years ago seen it before .. driver of the 993 was a pro racing driver and the biker was his mate who passed away some years later on a fast bike so there you go "live by the speed die by the speed" kinda reminded me of me nipping down to the shop to get back in time to watch the match on a Saturday afternoon

Oh ........ that is such a relief ......... nooo

As for the motor cyclist it does not surprise me that he is no longer alive.

Just for clarity.
The driver of the Porsche is no longer with us....
I used to live a mile from the road where it took place.

Filmed in the mid to late 90's as previously mentioned on the Worksop a57 by-pass. Been discussed on various social media sites over the yrs.
Its utter madness to say the least!

1993 Porsche 964 Anniversary

PostPosted: Tue Nov 29, 2016 9:12 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

There was a rumour that the driver was 'allegedly' driving over to see me as he'd heard I had 25 bags for the right 993.

Unfortunately I had to reject it for a number of reasons:

1) It was a cab and I wanted a coupe
2) the engine had a funny smell, and
3) the seller was wearing flares what

(I'm sure that number plate is still knocking about - member on here Dont know )

I beg to differ - If that is the case then flat out in 6th (which you see at 4.44) 170 indicated is only 105mph on a litre sports bike NotAgree ...... now given that its a slightly older model R1 unless i miss counted and he was in second at that point its in MPH......

Just by way of comparisons a 2005 Kawasaki ZX10r will, on standard gearing, get over 100mph in first Surprised

From all of the negative responses to the Porsche driver on here I am guessing that none of you have ever had a 5 year old in the car who needs the loo?

Would have been 1998 at the earliest, as thats a 1998/1999 model R1.

Ive the same model of R1 in my garage. Its a 1998/1999 one, which was the first R1 and some say the maddest. It will hit 115mph on the rev limiter in 2nd gear, and flat out, well, apparently, will hit high 180`s (on the speedo). Utterly brilliantly quick and fast handling bike, as quick on the road as any newer bike, hence why ive had mine for over 15 years now and not swapped it for anything newer.

My 3 year old is just being potty trained and the run to nursery with him in the back of my turbo last week was nerve racking due to worrying about the above!

Fortunately we made it without any incidences.

Youre right on watching again. However, there is something unconvincing about the 911's acceleration above 100mph, for a standard car. Looks far too quick, given it would take around 6-7 secs to get from 60-100, you'd expect 100-160 to take a lot longer than it does in the vid.

Smoke and mirrors, as a forum illuminati would say.
