His CO2 argument on that basis was terribly misguided :lol: - just say you can only drive one at a time or something. He totally lost me! Oh and please fix the Espada :)

What a lovely car. Didn’t Nick Trott have one before the 996 GT2?

£150k though.... :|

I remember looking at how much they were when I bought my 968 CS... could be had for about £20k for a decent one!

Did anyone else notice the one Harry was driving has Pirelli P6000s fitted? :cry:

Watched this the other day, similar idea but based on a 964.



I’m a fine a time when Porsche would make a stripped out car and charge less for it :lol:.

First one of these I've watched... I didn't expect Harry to sound like that, somehow!

I love the small car feel of the older Porsches - that way the driver's door bends in towards you that you don't get in the newer ones.

Amazing, now all the owners and aficianados on Twitter are saying the CS is better than the 964 RS.

Make you minds up.

I remember less effusive articles on the CS.

I love the utterly pointless passenger-sun-visor delete. That’s 50g saved then. :)

Didn't he just have a standard 911 SC?

As I watched the clip, my main thought was "god, here we go, they'll be man-fat'ing over these now".

Yeah, he's spend a considerable amount of money having it restored and the engine tuned and rebuilt, IIRC. He still owns it and has been driving it daily this year.

Have not watched it yet (and won’t be able to until later) but this has just gone live.

That visible throttle cable is ace. Wish mine had one.

That exhaust, bananas, but what else do you do when management says "make it loud!" :D

Another great video.

Love the car, and I am a fan of V6 noise. 1350kg ‘wet’ is also very respectable.

At that price though, it’d be hard for me to choose it over the new GT4/Spyder.
