Those German old-timers are bizarrely for sale through the second-hand bag shop on the Ground floor.
Ah. That explains it. Seen the 928 there a few times over the last few months and also an early R129 Mercedes SL.

Wonder what they want for the 968 cabriolet

Indeed, all clear now thanks (I did suspect they may have been for sale). Isn’t the Porker a 944? It’s interior looks very rough.

There would have been a point where I’d have been interested in taking a punt on almost any of these but I’m now starting to feel that they’d all be rather dated and slightly disappointing on the roads here.

Quite right - a 944. I think I had that recent PH 968 article on the brain and memories of yet another bargain back in the UK that I did not get when I should have.

That being said, 525,000AED:

Interesting price given that it's not a SL73

The 'rounded' AMG bodykits that came towards the end of the production run never sat well with the rather angular design of the R129 shape in my view. The earlier style kit was much better:

No pics unfortunately, but have seen Porsche 992 driving around Motor City and Al Qudra road a number of times recently.

Wow - what a line-up!

What event was it and was it advertised in advance? It would have been great to do.

Cheers

The white Senna is definitely being used as intended. Track day at Yas yesterday where it was lapping quickly.

The McLaren Senna was also going well at the Autodrome a couple of weeks ago. Thought my Huracan had slipped out of gear when he passed me ....

A GT2RS spanking it around Losail on a recent track day i entered. This and a brand new 488 Pista (driven by a pro driver) were setting crazy times.
