Whilst at the beautiful Bruno race track int he Chezk republic last year (see previous post) I captured some great images which I almost forgot to post and thought you might enjoy.
Porsche happened to be unloading about 40 cars which were destined to be tested around the track by clients who had paid for the privelidge. I think the cost was about Euro 400 which seems a bit of a bargain to me. Allowing clients to try out thie favourite Porsche on an excellent track. If you watch Moto GP you will recognise the track, a superb fast and smooth circuit…a little unexpected given the location.
Anyway I mooched around with the camera and here is the result. Above part of the lineup of Factory frexsh Porsche. Along with them artic loads of wheels, tyres and no doubt a few spares to keep them fresh.
Everything from a basic Boxster 2.9 through to GT3, Turbo and Panamera was present.
928 v Panamera. Is the Panamera the new 928. I think so. Thats no bad thing. The arrival into the pits of this old 928 that was clearly still in regular use was dead cool. The driver happened to be entered in a 944 for the 12 hour race. He turned up in this eighties beauty.
A 928 daily driver rather than garage queen and even though some might wince at the mods, I respect him. I just wouldn’t have the guts to drive it like this, eighties hood scoops, side skirts and all, its still dead cool and fitted the scene. Full marks to the 928.
At the other end of the scale and the posh end of the pits was this Porsche Panamera by Techart . The windows were so dark that I took loads of photos before discovering that the owner was still sat inside! Is it just me or is there something similar about the 928 and the Panamera?
These demonstration cars were kept in as new condition by a raft of travelling technicians. Here are some of the choices;
Although I cannot confess to be a lover of the shape or indeed type of car, the Cayenne Hybrid in light yellow looked superb and I am sure, hybrid or not this is much more friendly and attractive than the regular black. Thats got to be a good thing. I rather like it but suspect it will not be popular on the UK market. What do you think?
Fabulous red GT3. Even though red was in fashion, then wasn’t and now might be, there is no denying, it still loks just right on a 911.
I tried to capture the colour but failed. However, its a most beautiful deep burgandy, like Ribena and so so classy with the shiny trim over the windows. Really nice.
Fashionable at the moment. Will it stay in fashion?Maybe I need my eyes tested but I think this actually looked rather good in the dark green, there is something unique about a Panamera, as though its designed for those that don’t want to stand out. Definitely its not a traditionally beautiful car, still it has an understated quality that I think will grow in time to be appreciated. A modern 928, a bit of E type in the rear hatch. I see a future with these. Call if you would like one.
The Boxster Spyder has little thats sensible over a regular Boxster. But sensible isn’t always best. The Spyder looked the business. Roof on or off.
