  8. The memories 2015...... Catching up with mates, the thrill of the chase, parking next to a buddy. AHH ... to do it all again, but it will have to be in a different beast this time and moving lockdowns don't make it possible. Enjoy, I know what fun it is. Cheers, Mark. 🙃
  9. Info by an US owner on new delivery last week - There was a recall for 996 2021 GTS/GT4 worldwide. I haven't even taken ownership. Stop sale came in 4 hours after car arrived at the dealer and was getting its initial inspection. Total engine (replacement) Connecting rods were not speced properly. Could cause catastrophic engine failure. Compensation is (USD)4K off the price of the car and an 8-year warranty. At least Porsche are on to this to look after customers but should mean considerable delays to the already delayed deliveries.
  10. Sold the 968 - parting shots. 😪 24 years difference but so many similarities. Both have outstanding cornering abilities with weight balance and fantastic Period performance. both cars have similar beautiful lines and stance. Stats - 968 1993 - Engine 4 cylinder 3lt NA, Accel 0-100kph 6.0secs, Front engine rear transaxle approx 50/50 weight balance, Gearbox Manual 6 speed. 718 2017 Cayman S - Engine 4 cylinder 2.5lt Turbo, Accel 0-100kph 3.8secs, Mid engine approx 50/50 weight balance, Gearbox Dual clutch auto paddle shift 7 speed. At least the shear joy of driving the 968 will continue in the 718.
  11. Similar lines 24 years difference.
  12. Haven't heard it on the Forum but there is a recall of the new Porsche Cayman GT4, GTS, Spyder and Boxster with the 4.0 lt engine - as the engine has spec issues that could cause catastrophic failure. Anyone hear been affected or can tell us more ?
  13. I have a set of Turbo wheel caps if your interested ? - PM me with your contact.
