Model 993 car­rera 2 Year 1994

Ac­quired De­cem­ber 2014

A month? It’s been that long since

I’ve opened the garage door, which is ter­ri­ble, but so too has been the weather, with snow still fall­ing at times here in the UK, and lit­tle op­por­tu­nity to go out in the 993. Not that I’ve not been im­mersed in all things 911, just not with my own one.

The snow wasn’t enough to stop me en­joy­ing a 996 GT2 bor­rowed from Paragon for a fea­ture drive on these very pages. We were lucky with the weather, Paragon’s HQ seem­ingly sit­u­ated in an oa­sis of sun­shine while the rest of the coun­try was brac­ing it­self for the re­turn of win­ter.

A flurry of the white stuff did make things a bit in­ter­est­ing, as, fa­mously, the GT2 comes un­adorned with such nan­ny­ing equip­ment like trac­tion con­trol and such­like. In all hon­esty I loved it for that. Else­where these past few weeks I’ve been off to see the new GT3 RS in Geneva – where I also drooled over the RUF SCR – and chat­ted to Porsche CEO Oliver Blume for a fea­ture, too.

Not long af­ter I got to see the RS with Weis­sach Pack fit­ted at the New York Show (I’m not con­vinced it looks good if I’m hon­est) and spot­ted one com­mit­ted GT3 driver (Nomigt3 on In­sta­gram) do­ing the daily commute in the New York traf­fic. It seems there are plenty of you out there more com­mit­ted to the cause of us­ing your 911s more reg­u­larly, and it’s great to see more out on the roads de­spite the rise in val­ues.

With that in mind the Car­rera will be out in the next few days. It’s off for a ser­vice soon and head­ing back up to my home­land of Scot­land next month for a proper drive, too. There will be no more ex­cuses here, and I’m sure af­ter get­ting it out of the garage I’ll, as ever, not re­ally want to put it away again. Un­til next month, keep en­joy­ing your cars.
