Look carefully, it’s in there somewhere.

Love the setting for the red 911 how did you get that past the Mrs? I would be in big trouble if I turned any room in the house into a storage for any car lol

Both pictures taken, at different times, at Caffeine & Machine, in Warwickshire.

The red 912 belongs to Phil McGovern of C&M. They often have cars and motorcyles of interest in that room.

Couldn't get a car into my house, although I did once get told off by Mrs for riding a new mountain bike laps around the lounge, so I guess a car would be a no anyway.

Another top tip for a happy marriage is to not use the (Miele because PistonHeads) dishwasher on a pots and pans cycle to clean a crusty/oil caked pair of tubular headers from the Essex V6 in your MK 1 Capri GT 3000 regardless of how effective it is.

30 litres - bet that shifts!

I think what did it for the indoors biking was, having got me eye in for the living room lap, I took a corner too fast and clipped a wall with the bar end. Tell tale handlebar mark was impossible to disguise...

Fixed that for you. The Essex V6 sounded a lot faster than it was.

Ok sorry for going off-topic but I have a question for GT owners.

Finally, I am in the market for a GT model and after having a drive of a 993 Carrera 4 and a 996 GT3 I have decided I would like to put my money into an older model.

The cars I have down on a list is the Porsche GT3 996 Gen 2, Porsche GT3 996 RS or a Porsche 997 GT3 RS.

I am looking to purchase a low mileage car but will be using the car for mostly weekend trips and track work depending on Covid restrictions this summer.

The plus IMO is these cars are very much more old school but also will keep their values pretty well over a period of time.

If you were in the market which would be your choice? The 996 GT3 RS is something I have always desired but I am starting to think they are going to peak when low mileage cars seem to be close to the £200,000 mark.

Maybe I just need to bit the bullet but I would love any advice.

Possibly, but equally, you can see scenarios where they are very awkward or punitively expensive to use. In the outside (unlikely) case, a real environmental zealot government could ban them. Values are not certain. These are not investments IMHO, especially if you want to use them and enjoy them.

Just buy what you love. And get a PPI.

Reminds me of my (then) 7-ish year old asking me "Daddy - what does MO 75 mean?"

I took me a while to figure that one out!

If you're actually going to use it properly, I wouldn't pay the premium for a low mileage version of any of them. I'd get a very well maintained pre-loved version that's already done a bit of mileage driving

Thank you for your reply and advice. Yes, you have a point. Perhaps these low mileage cars should be left to collectors.
