Just went down to AFN Reading in the 996(nice drive on the way too) to have a look round.

I wasn't ready for what I was about to see-996 GT1 raced in lemans, 550 spyder, 356 of some sort, 996 GT3, GT2, Turbos, 2 40th anniversary cars, C4S's....

Didn't have a camera.

Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I knew you'd respond Bones! :D
It was a 98 btw. Is your car working?

No Noony No....that could be a song.....the car won't be on the road for some months yet, haven't even got the engine out yet but I've tracked down a gearbox and linkage. I wish these Porsche centres would tell Porsche Post or 911 and Porsche world when these historic Porsches will be in their showrooms. I went into my 'local ' Hatfield Porsche dealer some time ago and there was a 917 sat there!!

If you're thinking about going(and do-probably once in a lifetime opportunity to see a GT1 and 550) I'll tell you how to get there, and could meet you as long as you did it before xmas eve.

so noony, you interested in purchasing the GT1?? perhaps a christmas present for yourself? only a few (x100 000) quid.

It's not for sale unfortunately. Too unpractical anyway, only room for one. I'd prefer the cobalt blue GT3 they had. Just need to persuade dad now. BTW do you want some pics of what the final version of the 997 will look like, as you're on the list?

:wink:

Well if that truly is it and not a P'shop mock up , I Iike it , it owes a lot to the 993 and is what they should have done in the firstplace.
