Sometimes I cringe a bit at putting so many miles on it and the depreciation etc.......but my everyday car is a Skoda Yeti- it’s difficult to go on a journey in the Yeti when the RS sits in the garage.......I figure when I’m on my death bed I won’t care 2 hoots about cars and money !

I was lucky enough to be taken for a couple of very fast laps around the Nordschleife on Tuesday in this stunner, must be one of the 5ish UK cars you mention?

OP you may well be the most qualified person in the world to tell us how they actually drive on UKs less than average roads? Is it a stiff set up?

Love it!

IMI A - regarding the drive on rubbish U.K. roads -it’s considerably better at soaking up the bumps than I expected.....when I pull out of some sloping driveways at an angle I’m momentarily on 3 wheels- it’s undoubtedly a stiff set up.....but yet it only gets jiggly and nervous on the bumpy B roads if you are doing silly speeds- like well over 100mph.....I understand the Gen 2 991 GT3RS front springs are twice as stiff and rear are 50% stiffer so I think for what I want it for I’m best to stick to the Gen 1.
I really can’t recommend the model enough though- I just can’t imagine a keen driver buying one and being genuinely disappointed with the performance.

It does get some unnecessary attention though, recently I was driving out of Costa Coffee drive thru when I was confronted by around half a dozen young lads on BMX’s who were blocking the exit. The gang leader tapped on my window and said they’d move when I gave them a blast of the sports exhaust!

Brilliant, built to be used and not stuck in a garage. Is that photo on the lead in to Braemar?

Ha you should see the roads where I am. UK roads a bumpy racetrack by comparison. Re the car will have to try one some day. One of the nicest 911s I’ve ever seen yours. Don’t blame the lads for wanting a listen - X Factor off the scale Wink

It being on 3 wheels is more indicative of a decently stiff bodyshell and limited suspension travel, rather than an overly stiff springs and dampers Smile

As for a keen driver not being disappointed, you’re not familiar with the infamous Mr Demon on PistonHeads ...???

Awesome car in a stunning hue btw thumbsup

That’s a beautiful car, congrats.

I wouldn’t hold that against JZM personally, have a look at the CarWiki video where he talks about his time at a Lamborghini dealer and trailering cars to people. He explains how often it goes wrong so they hated doing it, which is probably why the only agreed begrudgingly.
