Love my C4S!




.......or a proper British summer we are having at the moment Floor


Indeed. I recall seeing a C2 sitting in a field having departed a straight stretch of road in a very heavy summer rain storm. Clearly the driver didn't have the skillz for 2wd.


A couple of winters ago while driving my old 4s along the A55 at it's highest point, I encountered a fair bit of snow.

I was doing about 60 and the backend just drifted out.....application of more power and it came back into line.

If I had been in my previous 996C2.............I would have been driving a front wheel drive, front engined 911 Floor

2 for me with a set of winters for the “winter!”

Mind you a 4 GTS or a Turbo S would be nice.
