1995 Porsche 993 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Fri Nov 08, 2013 3:03 pm    Post subject: Porsche 993 ownership 'Mohitos' map Reply with quote

Here's something for a quiet Friday afternoon:

It's an idea I've taken from the 968 forum and has proved very popular amongst the TVR fraternity too.

You may not want the location to be your exact street for security reasons, but it will still give a good idea of how many 993's there are in your rough area, which can be helpful if you're trying to organise a meet or need some help with something.

ZeeMaps: https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=731119

Password: porsche993

Instructions to add your car as follows:

Click 'map access' top right

Enter password 'porsche993' and click unlock.

Click 'additions' and go to 'add marker - detailed'

Add your user name in the top box, and town/county. You may wish to enter the year of your car and model after your user name like this: 'mohitos (1996 - Carrera)'

As per Dom Morton's suggestion later in the thread, to uphold OCD standards, could people use the model descriptions as per the below table:



You don't need address or postcode fields if you'd prefer the location to be close but not exact for security reasons.

Choose the closest pin colour available to match your car

Click 'preview' to check and 'submit'

Hope you like the idea - if it proves popular, maybe one of the mods could stickie it.

Stuart

This is great well done OP.

I'm in with my 1994 black Carrera cab. Sadly no others within 25 miles of my location but no doubt this will grow and grow.

I like this, but my OCD requires for it to have a standard model naming convention for the pins.

Can we perhaps mirror those of the build stats shown here?

That way we can see the % of the UK fleet are with the club by model/year

But you've broken your own OCD rule... you put

Carrera 4S

and the build stats say

Carrera 4 S

Grin


Shame on him Hand

I've fixed that, and added the standard model descriptions to the OP Thumb

Hello, joined a while ago but haven't posted before. Need to figure out how to add pics when I get some time.
