How did you get on? I


Great day. Strong progression and nobody had any problems. Lots of sessions mixed in with GT cars so the soundtrack was great.

Weather Stayed dry and warm. Car achieved 10pmg Thumb

Anyone heading out on track tomorrow is in for a treat as the track is in great condition.

Very Happy

Nice picture.

I did a track day there earlier in the year and had an equally good day. I was acutely aware of how fast the track was and the zero run off into solid tyre walls. Laughing
Glad there were no problems.

You definately need to be precise at goodwood. Late afternoon we had a couple of kamikaze pheasants between st Mary’s and Lavant corner which was an odd distraction....only at goodwood are the seagulls in dinner jackets thumbsup

Hi. New to this subforum but not to the site. Looking forward to a new chapter in porsche ownership as I've added a 991 to the garage.

991.1 c4s in Riv Blue with the aero kit. Car is originally from the Leeds area.

Does anyone know it?


Looking at this im seriously considering the side decals and full rear spoiler in addition to the duck worship

Black over yellow will look very good. The contrast makes it very striking. I know you are thinking of green on the car, I'd not go for green on the sides as it just is not as good as green stripes on the bonnet/roof etc.

Agree
black side decals would look fantastic on a bold colour like yellow (as it does on riviera) my suggestion on another thread of green side decals was Devil

Sadly the 'cost to change' was way too high for me but I hope she finds a good home.

I so wanted you to take it as you were a great help when I bought it. Also, it would have been available to buy back in the future thumbsup

Time to spec a new car but not a Porsche unfortunately. Going for a red portofino as a GT.

Rivblu is now at John Holland’s in Sheffield. Top Blokes who made the best offer. They sold me the car originally.

Unfortunately? A red Ferrari is not unfortunate! IMHO I think the Portofino is lovey looking, although others on here might question your sexual orientation ..... I'd have mine in Blue. Thumb

Floor fully expecting all those comments. Driven one in the alps and on a closed airfield. It’s an absolute hoot that makes the right noises.

I say unfortunately as I would have specced a GT3RS in a proper PTS colour but I’m not worthy. I think a lot of others will do the same when the Portofino coupe is announced at the end of this year.

Still love porsche and fortunate to have the 997 still.

Smile But most would have one if they had the cash ....

Ah yes - well I tried to get a Boxster Spyder and I'm not worthy either. I'm really starting to wonder who is? I mean the 911 is my 5th Porsche FFS! Sad
