  1. I like the look of this 997.2 4S cab. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2009-porsche-911-carrera-4s-997-series-ii-auto-awd-my09/SSE-AD-7098619/?Cr=2
  2. Crickets….so I guess not then. I am still waiting on confirmation of mine so was wondering if anybody else had got theirs.
  3. Anybody have a confirmed allocation for a regular GT3 Touring yet?
  4. Was for sale a little while ago and seems to have come back around. But anyway, how much will this go for $$$$. Originally Sultan of Brunei car now owned by Jensen Button with review done by Chris Harris. https://collectingcars.com/for-sale/1994-porsche-911-964-turbo-3-6-x88
  5. I was there with Lee Sibley when he did the interview. In parrallel, he also did a feature story on a couple of my cars for Total911 magazine. No I didn’t. After much to ing and fro ing, I decided to sell them all off rather than have to pay the OZ gov a large lump of money. Took me 10 years to collect but had to sell due to OZ gov greed. Although philosophically, it’s better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.
  6. Yep, thats him. Big guy but boy can he drive! Flogs the crap out of his cars. And he only know one way around a corner and thats sideways. Here are some additional shots of my cars (964 RS, 991.2 RS, 997.2 RS, GT3 Touring) in his garage. I personally like the shot of my 964 RS nose to nose with his 964 RS 3.8 that was taken for a magazine.
  7. Racks are manually ratcheted down. Takes a bit of time.
  8. My mates garage in Europe. Pretty much owns every R/RS/RSR ever made including an original R from 1967. It's an awe inspiring place. There are multiple rooms and every one contains unbelievable stuff. He was kind enough to let me store my modest collection of 6 Porsches there so every trip to his garage to pick up one of my cars was pretty special.
  9. Me...this time last year in a GT4 Clubsport up Eau Rouge at Spa! This year...stuck in lockdown in Australia. 😭😭😭 This is about as self gratuitous as it gets.
  10. Its true....buy not coming until 2023 and very, very limited production of only 1 year. Oh...and OZ will be lucky to see more than a handful of cars based the limited production.
  11. Just between me and the forum 🤫 Same engine as the GT4 but heavily tweaked to almost 500hp PDK only +- 1000 cars a year, 2 years production Start of production: 03/2022
  12. Agree. I recently looked at a very good 964. Owner was asking 87K GBP. After import taxes, etc, the car would have owed me over $200K locally. Decided its not worth it.
  13. Don't know if you have ever lived in the UK but I have. During that time I inspected a bunch of pre-90 911s. Many were in excellent condition. Some were rubbish...it's just the same in Australia. There is a reason the car in this video is very cheap. It's a rubbish example. As with all old 911s, when buying one, its all about getting a good PPI to sort out the wheat from the chaff. IMHO, the level of bias against UK cars is entirely unjustified.
  14. I just don't get the current day criticism of the gear ratios. My 996 GT3 RS pretty much maxed out at the same speeds in the first few gears and yet not once have I read or heard anybody dump on the 996 RS for its long ratios. Indeed it was a hoot to drive on road and on track. And it was pretty much the same for the 964 RS. So IMHO, it's a fad that everyone feels compelled to repeat. Lemmings comes to mind.
