Re: What did you do in/on/for your Porsche today?

Hi All
Running a week or so late with this but my new ‘centre caps’ have arrived and I’ve fitted them to Alice my ‘Kettle’.
I rather like their simple retro look.Image

Re: What did you do in/on/for your Porsche today?

I’ve got sport 4s’s on the GT4 - really like them - nice and predictable in the wet or damp unlike the cup2s that it came with which were squirrely as f*ck over anything damp.

Re: What did you do in/on/for your Porsche today?

Hi All Not strictly what 'I did' or even 'today' but yesterday I collected my 997 C2S ‘Daily’ from having it’s new wheels & tyres fitted, so now while no longer having an early 911 at least the wheels look similar… For those who care about such things the wheels are made by Retro Alloys (in Ital...

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20231009/bb1b4130109ef1f009d32d47888a1739.jpg Not today but yesterday it stoped raining for long enough (well almost long enough) to get the ‘Rep’ out for a little run… Let’s hope it’s not the last one of the year!

Re: Which Tyre??

Hi Jonny
Big Fan of the Brockley 165 X 15 (on my 550 'rep'), surprisingly good in the wet, not that it goes out in the rain that much!

All the best.

Hi Andy
I might be able to help, with a few names or people to talk to...
I hate to ask but what sort of budget did you have in mind?

What did you do in/on/for your Porsche today?

Hi All
Running a little late with this but MOT'd the Spyder a week ago...
Passed 1st time with no advisories (for the 3rd year in a row).
Happy? You bet I am!

All the best

Re: Chris Harris and the Tuthil 911

Going back a few years now, but didn't Tuthil's build Chris Harris a 911 'resto mod', I seem to recall him wiping around in a green, wide arched, long bonnet car they built..?
