After driving the mega-mileage Carrera in the last issue I was determined to use the 993 a bit more frequently. As ever, my good intentions quickly vanished, as a combination of being stupidly busy with work, as well as with my family, means it’s languished in the garage for a few more weeks.
Those good intentions were banished as much by paperwork as anything else, as I did get as far as taking the Carrera out of the garage and parking it on my drive. The plan was to use it for some work trips, a few hundred miles or so there and back. I was just about to leave when I remembered that the MOT must be due, so a bit of frantic checking had me discover it was, and it was overdue.
Now, tempting as it would be to drive it without its annual test certificate it’s just not worth it. A few hours of phone calls to get a booking that day proved fruitless, so sadly I popped it back in the garage to be driven another day. When that might be, I’ve no idea, but I’ve got plans for it next month, so long as life doesn’t get in the way again.
Still, all is not lost. As you’ll read in the coming months I’ve been lucky enough to get in some interesting 911s other than my own. Now if only I had the means to buy that Carrera featured last issue, I’d run it as a daily driver, any weather, allyear round.
