    Loved this shot! I'm guessing a late '60's?

    Yeah, that's one of my favorites.

    It's a '67 911 with the original engine bumped up from 2.0 to 2.2 liters

    I'd love to have one of those, with the short stroke engine. I've read that they have a wonderful sound at high rpm.

    I want along to the launch of the new Cayman at the Glasgow Porsche centre.
    Some interesting Porsche cars on display as well as the new Cayman.

    That's the reason Porsche makes some really great cars - imagine only making a decision on the transmission [less than a year] before production - after arguing at length over weight and feel.....

    9000 rpm !

    Can't wait to hear one.
    And forget what I said about cars being over developed....and pass the kool - aid :1drink

    Not sure he knows either ...

    That's been making the rounds in Porsche chats for a few years now.
    At one time I think it was listed for $ 32,000,000.00

    A steal at half price ! :rofl

    I looked at one in Southern Cali back in the early 80's. It was modified a bit much for my taste and was too much $$$$.
