  1. Porsche contribution to his rich life https://drivetribe.com/p/little-known-porsche-factory-driver-TkdQ-g3DS-6oouo_yQFfwQ?iid=MVvAvj1xT8C6ZpC2ZpfyJg
  2. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7051847/Niki-Lauda-Austrian-Formula-1-legend-dies-aged-70-period-ill-health.html I vividly recall the terrible fire. It eventually caught up to him , but he left an inspirational legacy in so many ways. RIP.
  3. http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20190327-the-tiny-islands-leading-the-way-in-hydrogen-power If the Orkneys can do it...
  4. I seem to recall (many years ago) I just cut the tubing and replaced the blocked valves and pipes. I don't have those long thin German hands!
  5. I'm not even texting. Just used to listening. Last century it was clip clop, which was good. I got hit from behind by a cyclist on the footpath 2 days ago. She said OMG so sorry. Didn't see you. I must have been going too fast. Told her perhaps she should take her chances on the road.
  6. EVs are too effing quiet. I like to be able to just walk across the road without looking right. You can't and won't make an old dog learn new tricks. I just hope EVs have excellent auto brakesteer. Or I'm dead as a dodo.
  7. The point I was making is that Australia is small beer for Porsche , and always has been.
  8. In Australia perhaps. In the Northern hemisphere things are very different. 50% of new vehicles sold in Norway are EVs , 1 in 8 on the roads now are EVs. Fossil fuel is expensive, electrons are relatively cheap . If we could see Antarctica melting before our eyes and polar bears penguins falling in to the ocean, we'd probably view things differently. But we are lucky enough to live on a vast island continent. Even if the Koalas are dying out and our cities are choked. Electric 911? Woopty-do , Basil. It will happen, one day.
  9. It might turn out to be a bidding war between the Stuttgart & Wolfsburg curators , as the car is "not a proper Porsche", but a VW in wolf's clothing
  10. If they don't , they will face a "please explain" from me and many others. Far more important than chucking billions of moneys at LMP1
  11. https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2019/05/14/proto-porsche-the-1939-type-64/?refer=news Good summary
  12. https://www.news.com.au/sport/motorsport/formula-one/martin-brundle-on-spanish-gp-frustrations-and-f1-future-visions/news-story/499f07658efc581a20b73b8e530216df
  13. Mega price. Maybe Ronaldo or one of the Kardashians will bid?

There would of course be 924s, 944s and 928s
