911R

Specifically this "Steve McQueen" inspired one biggrin








McQueens 911 in the film Le Mans was the same Slate Grey. This 991R sold for 500 thousand Euros at auction earlier this year.

The gap between the C and Q on the sill motif would annoy my OCD though laugh
Just imagine how good that would look with a ducktail?

Agreed; all that effort and then its ballsed up at the very last; a bit like meeting your all time beautiful actress/model/singer/whomever and then finding a great big zit on the end of her nose.
Not only is the gap inexcusable I’d cringe every time I opened the door-that is seriously naff!

Luckily I’m too poor for it ever to be a concern I guess!

This.

I must be mental having had one of the early ones which was less than reliable.

Can’t stop thinking about going back for another try though.

I can't stop looking at Europas at the moment... probably one of the most 'marmite' cars to ever emerge from an English factory but I love them...

Under our very nose, (stuffy old) Morgan are making Hot Rods.
Long may it continue, and I hope they are able to sell in to the US.

I like ducktails. But not for this car tbh. But each to their own. Though I've been looking at GT3RS with the upper soiler removed recently as well.







Do I like that!

I guess if you're planning on track work you can always stick it back on. In normal driving up to maybe 100, I daresay the loss of aero/downforce are not much. So you're not going to fly off the road laugh (could fit a bigger rear diffuser I guess biggrin )

I think Id be spending a hundred quid on some originals to be refitted biggrin The actual colour, graphics looks fine, so you can "de-Mc . Queen" it

Want to get one as my "first" (2nd to be insured on) car but not sure about the reliability of using it 32 miles daily and the affordability of repairs etc as a uni student

Good call, I worked at a Buick dealer when these were new, so drove many of them and the model before. My best mates dad had a maroon one.

Apparently to be replaced by an aston Martin Valkyrie, no huge loss, as he still has the f1 lick

The position of the wheels in the wheel arch is dreadful.

This one looks alright. Must have been a case of the suspension set too high at the rear on the previous example.

Totally standard, RX-7 in black.

I've been obsessing for over a month now and may have worked up the courage to stump up the cash.

Halfway between stupidly excited and terrified of financial ruin.
