Total 911 - - Living The Legend – 911 Owner Reports -

Well last month I had that dilemma of ‘do I keep my car?’ Well I still have it, and I have made progress with re­spect to the sus­pen­sion. I have swapped back to my 17-inch black rims. I’ve only man­aged a few trips but the car is no­tice­ably bet­ter. I even got my wife to drive it to see what she thinks, and apart from a white van man try­ing to force us into a dry­s­tone wall as he was on our side of the road, she felt it was bet­ter.

In­ter­est­ingly, on tyres, we have changed the P Ze­ros on our Ma­can early, as we have never found that the car han­dled as well as the one we drove at the Porsche Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre. We have opted for all-sea­son tyres, the Pirelli Scor­pion Verde.

Since my 996 has been garaged more than not re­cently I have treated it to a cover just to keep the dust away from it. It will get a full week’s worth of use next week, and even though I was quite neg­a­tive to­wards it last month, I am ac­tu­ally look­ing for­ward to us­ing it! Also, if you fol­low Porsche news, the Sport Turismo was launched re­cently. We were in­vited to Bris­tol OPC to see the launch, but there was an­other spe­cial there, one of the new Bri­tish Leg­ends 911s – this was the Nick Tandy car, which is a GTS C4 with a few trick bits on it! Nice!
