For those who don’t use them as daily drivers, have you got it back on the road, if not when is it coming out.

I am abroad at the moment but will be getting her out and about within the next couple of weeks, can’t wait! Another 3k or so to be added before next winter!

Gradually eroding the value, but hey I am only here the once!

Mine is garage but used "high-days and holidays" 365 days a year. Rain won't melt it.

Always garaged, but never in winter storage. Assuming no snow or ice, quite happy for her to get a bit grubby any day of the year. They really don't appreciate just sitting there doing nothing for extended periods of time, imho.

Would love to keep mine garaged at home but my garages need rebuilding as they are wet and past it. In the meantime it stays at my sons 50 miles from me as he has a nice dry garage I can use.

Absolutely agree that all cars should be driven regularly but I don't want to leave mine outside under a cover during the worst months, as I think that is going to be bad for the bodywork. I am definitely a fair weather driver in the 993, I have other cars for gritted roads and donkey work luckily!

First world problems eh??

Drove mine to work yesterday - fab weather, couldn't resist. Besides, needs a run now and again. Mind, I left early to get a prime spot in the corporate car park.

Mine's been used a few times this year - so had to have a thorough wash at the weekend.
I shouted to Mrs S - "I'm just going round the block to dry the brakes...."

Got home over an hour later Grin
