Can someone explain?

I think I had one inquire about my car.

He was concerned about why I have a Pilot sport cup 2 instead of Continental.. Surprised

What he said...what an odd thing to say, I mean if they wanted to they could always buy the car and put whatever set of tyres they wanted on it.
Obviously wasn't going to be a good owner for your 993 if he was going to disgrace it with Conti's..

Fortunately the Illuminati as a breed seem to have largely died out on here: apart from in the minds of a few poor souls scarred by their obsession with originality, mileage and appreciation.

I might be wrong but the balance seems to be people happily using, modding and enjoying their cars.

Certainly using the 993. Thanks to this Forum I’m driving my 993 to Budapest on Saturday for next weeks World Masters Rowing Champs. I must be mad because I have a Mini and a 997 both with warranties.

If I make it I will let you know

Also this involved changing my bank account of 37 years from Lloyds to Nationwide to get their breakdown cover which includes Hungary and Slovenia

Sounds fun - enjoy the drive!

...and I've just scheduled a drive to Vilamoura in Portugal next year.
Not as far as you - but I will be travelling from further north Confused

You will make it.. I drove my 993 from UK to Barcelona and back, sweet as a nut no issues.

If they have RS or Turbo S, then maybe.. but no other 993

Ever since I got the car back from the body shop with the new windscreen, I am sure the wiper position isn't quite right (wiper widget is still there though)...sure it would give the Illuminati cold sweats!

You should have told the chap it was on Contis, and on its original engine oil too to gauge the reaction Bandit

I certainly hope they are dying out as I’ll never shift mine otherwise!

Funnily enough, when standing in a queue for the camp site at Spa last weekend randomly got chatting to someone else with a modded 993 that also gets used.

Perhaps demographics of ownership are shifting.

Think you've hit the nail on the head there, although the investment market still seems pretty keen on any wide body car too.

Plain vanilla 993 is definitely for driving.

..and it always seems to be the choice of the Models when a Journo has a spread of 993 to choose from..
