We don’t just write about Porsches, we drive and live with them, too

THE TEAM STEVE BEN­NETT 996 C2

Famous last words, but as you can read op­po­site, I’m pretty sure that I now have a sus­pen­sion setup that I can live with and that works on our unique British roads. Just in time for win­ter!

KEITHSEUME 912/6 ‘EL CHUCHO’

So, win­ter is firmly upon us and thoughts turn to a fresh start in the New Year. The time has come to find a new owner for El Chucho, and it could be you! See full re­port on p106.

CHRISHORTON 924S, 944

Fun and games with the 924S’s hand­brake – which must also serve as a so-called emer­gency brake, so it’s im­por­tant that it works. All’s well that ends well, though – even if it did re­quire some un­planned mods

PETER SIMP­SON 356C

Still push­ing for­ward on the 356 and still wait­ing for plan­ning per­mis­sion to ex­tend my garage, so I can get on with work­ing on my Porsches as space is very tight now. I won­der why!

BRETT FRASER BOXSTER 3.2S

The list of ‘to do’ jobs for the Boxster might be long, but at least I’ve made a start, with the safety items like front tyres and brakes. Be­yond that it’s sus­pen­sion com­po­nents and leaks next.

JOHNNY TI­PLER BOXSTER 3.2S

As 50k miles ticked up, a mis­sion to RPM Tech­nik en­abled an oil change, as well as hav­ing un­der­side front corner plas­tic aero bits re­placed. Win­ter Vre­desteins now fit­ted ahead of Monte trip.

JEREMY LAIRD CAYMAN S

As the fes­tive sea­son ap­proaches the Croc is pre­par­ing a very spe­cial present just for me, in­volv­ing oc­ca­sional mis­fires on bank 1. Could it be coil packs? Var­i­o­cam so­le­noid? The sus­pense is killing me!
