This is like complaining that you'd turn away Kelly Brook because she makes a mess around the house, puts brown sauce on her chips instead of ketchup and takes ages to do The Times crossword.

Who wouldn't make a few small allowances for an absolute stunner in the looks department?


She probably has been around the block more times that 200,000 mile 3.2 Carrera.....

there you speak some sense (the CB and Bolly talking?) - an n/b 2wd manual is the way to go if the turbo doesn't float your proverbial.

I find it hard to compare the Turbo 993 to the other 993 models. To me it is a ‘supercar’ unlike the 997 and 991 turbo cars which are no longer seen that way. Maybe a GT2 is.

For most the iconic 911 is a 2wd manual coupe and they are what’s more sought after. Not trying to imply a 4/4S/targa/can/tip is not a lovely car as they all have their fans. Thumb
