Great post Jaap. And your 'expensive' RS-alike (based on what you paid) is now looking like a bargain Smile based on today's prices. Well done!!

I recognise the 3rd last photo is just after crossing the bridge into Scotland at Coldstream, the 2nd last is just before you join the A68 about a mile before Carfrae Mill hotel. Is the last photo around Pathhead? Lovely car by the way!

Thanks for sharing Jaap!

The A68 is indeed a great road, we're lucky to have it on the doorstep Smile

Hopefully see your car if we make it over the border to a show.

Just came back down the 689 from Edinburgh to Teeside today. One of my favourite journeys. I do not know which way you came up from Hull, but I can recommend the route through Beverley and Norton to Pickering, then Hutton lie hole and over the moors. We are so lucky with the roads in the north east.

Fantastic car....

Jaap, good to see the car again. There is obviously a Porsche bug running through the family. Love the fact that the 73 RS is out and about getting used.

I am hopefully going along to Porsche in the park again this year. Not sure if it will be in a Porsche but certainly intent making the effort to see the cars.

Looking back I had forgotten I had posted the original image of the car on the forum, I have to say its an amazing car up close and great to be able to see it in the flesh.

Cheers

Tom

Some from last year. Thumb

Nice write-up!

Saw your car in the flesh at paintshield last month when my GT3 was in for the same treatment. Yours looked a stunner, and TBH was better looking than the orange 991 GT3 RS it was parked next to!!

Thank you again for the kind words gents! Of course I thank you strictly on behalf of the car as I only bow at the altar of anyone who actually has the skills to make a 911 look this good...in this regard I'm no more than 'the driver' -not that I'm complaining Cool

Yes I cut across from the A1 and joined that road around Norton I when I realised my error! Stunning drive.
I did Edinburgh-London in my 'practical' car today as I was practically moving house: the 840. Even with all that extra weight the A697 was still a complete joy, allowing safe overtakes on a waves of V8. Glad I didn't take the M6 -the road that is- although you do pay a heavy price on the A1/M1 as you venture South...Mad

Thanks very much Tom - great to see those again. What a stunning day that was; I plan to go again this year and hope for even some vaguely similar weather! here's the link for anyone thinking about it, great family day out; http://www.tartantarmac.com/porsche-glen-30th-august-2015/

Thanks Rich - Stuart at Paintshield did suggest it had been a very popular car despite the 918's et al around it and seemed genuinely sad to see it go. A nice memory of the trip was hearing the car start up in Paintshield's workshop before I had seen it. Big Very Happy before the drive had even begun.

Love your car Jaap. Probably because it is so similar to mine but in red!

Did I not see somewhere you were selling, or did you decide to keep it??

Would love to get a photo of our cars together if you're ever at a meet!

Thanks Stan - I see what you mean about the resemblance! Beautiful car you have there - do you have a link to more pictures?

I believe I spotted Jaap's gorgeous car today. The weather was almost as beautiful. Nice sounds on the car, too. What exhaust are you running?
