  1. Yes you can do the Porsche and Mercedes museums in one day no problems. Both are 1-2 hrs max. And as stated above, you have to book factory tours a long way in advance to get in - at least 3-6 months. Plenty of Porsche Taxi ride and car hire options at the ring - RSR and Apex just to name a couple. You might consider going to Leipzig to the Porsche test track and do a two day driving course but that will depend on whats available at the time that matches your skill level. e.g. No point doing a Precision if you are already a track day junkie. Also Spa is less than 2hrs from the Ring. RSR have Porsche hire cars there too. Although again, it will depend on whether any track days are available that matches your timing. Two things to highlight. Firstly, if you go to the Ring for a TF day, you will not need a helmet. For any other track day you will so you may need to hire one somewhere. At Spa, you must where a helmet at all times and you must where long sleeve clothes, long pants and closed shoes so don't go under dressed because they will not let you on the track. Secondly, to hire a Porsche to go on a track is seriously expensive. RSR charges 2-4,000 euro/day (depending on track mileage) for a bog standard Cayman S up to 4-7,000 euro/day (depending on track mileage) for a GT3 RS. Then if you prang it....well....then it gets seriously, seriously expensive.
  2. I just had a note from my dealer to inform me that the SD for my incoming RS (if legislated by then) will jump from $23,251 to $40,241 if I take delivery after June 30th! An increase of $17,000! Absolute ****** thieves.
  3. 3 of the absolute best of the 991.2 generation - GTS, RS, Touring.
  4. Why take a boring SUV on holidays when you can take some just a little bit more interesting.....and faster!
  5. The Susten Pass is a great drive but can be a bit tricky in the wet you push it. Enjoy!
  6. Having owned and driven them all, I would definitely go for the .2 GT3. A well driven GT3 will keep up with a .1 RS on track no problem and will be a bit easier to drive on the road.
  7. Driving the 964 RS on track, while fun, is hard work. After 6 laps your done...well, at least I am....due to the lack of power steering....and I will admit...aircon. So I rarely drive my 964 RS on the track. It's largely confined to being an occasional fun weekend road car. Thats where I tend to enjoy the driving experience a whole lot more. Indeed, as both I, and my cars, get older, I am almost solely tracking my 991.2 RS. Even my 996 GT3 RS and my 997 GT3 RS are now just confined to being special weekend cars. So even though I have 4 generations of RS, the driving experience of each is so different, I still enjoy each one.
  8. Yep, very slow. But fun...although you need arms like a gorilla to man handle on a track without power steering. After 6 laps, your done. Turning heads at the garden centre.
  9. Been keeping an eye on the 997 GT3 RS market. Where did you get this one from if you don't mind me asking.
  10. Went on a 4 day road trip with the editor of Total911 magazine last weekend. There will be a story in the magazine about the trip in a coming edition. A friend of mine had hired the Abbeville track in France for the whole week and invited a bunch of friends to join him. He took a 10 cars from his collection including a DP 935, 930 Turbo S Flatnose, 911 SCRS, Ruf CTR Yellowbird, 964 Cup, 944 Cup, etc. We drove my Touring and my GT3 RS from the UK across to Abbeville. I also got my 964 RS trucked to the track. It was a fantastic two day playing with the three cars on track. We then drove from Abbeville to Spa for two days track work in the Touring and RS. Weather was largely atrocious. No more than 4C with a whole half day lost due to snow! Only managed to get 1 dry 45min session in over two days. We covered 1,600kms over the two days including 400kms on track. A total of 700 kms on track across the three cars. Notwithstanding the bad weather it was still a fun trip. Living the dream!
  11. Honestly, more often than not, it depends on what day it is. The order last week was 964 RS, 991.2 RS, 996 RS, 997.2 RS. This week it's 991.2 RS, 996 RS, 964 RS, 997.2 RS. The only thing that doesn't seem to change is that I pretty much always rank the 997.2 RS last. There is no doubt that the 991.2 RS is the best car by a country mile. The things you can do with that car are extraordinary.....BUT...if I was only allowed one of these cars for the rest of my life....I would most likely chose the 964 RS.
  12. Sharing the love around this past weekend. Out driving the roads around the hills behind my village. First in the 991 RS on Saturday and then the 996 RS on Sunday. Glorious! It's a great time of year to be in the UK. I will miss this when I get back to OZ.
  13. Fantastic drive through the Chilterns yesterday in the Touring in unusually good weather for the UK.....sunny, blue sky. Stopped off late in the day at the Ibstone Common opposite the cricket club. Very English!
  14. Together at the top of San Bernardino pass.
