PH BLOG: YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH
Dan faces an unwelcome realisation about the new 911 Cabriolet
I think I actually quite like the 991 cabrio.
bringing Harris on board.
But the beauty of the 911 is that thereís one to suit pretty much all tastes. Each to their own and all but mine do not, itís fair to say, accommodate anything other than coupes. And, if Iím getting really fussy, preferably ones with rear-wheel drive, manual transmissions and normally aspirated engines. The Boxster brilliantly covers the open-top Porsche angle but a 911 needs a roof and that distinctive swept back C-pillar, or it doesnít count. So Targas are out too. Arrogantly I thought this was more or less in tune with the PH way of thinking but, boy, was I wrong and when I expressed this sentiment in a story about the 991 Cabrioletís unveiling I got a proper flaming.
But the sight of this one, dew covered and brooding in the low morning sun. Hmm. And itís a manual.
Iíll hold proper judgement until Iíve driven one, which Iíll be doing shortly. Until then I remain a little unsettled.
For what itís worth I have no plans to switch to PG Tips though.
