Fast Car - - Hot Ride -

No, it’s not an of­fer of a punch in the mush. It’s some­thing far more dam­ag­ing, es­pe­cially to your wal­let. The Old & New kit on Mikey’s 997 may be the best part of 15 grand, and that’s a fair chunk of change, but you’re go­ing to have to put aside a lit­tle more to get your mitts on a bona fide 911 Flach­bau. If it’s the more rea­son­ably priced cars you de­sire, then a very nice 930 Slant­nose can be had for the bar­gain sum of a cou­ple of hun­dred grand nowa­days. Although that’ll steadily in­crease in the com­ing years, so now is as good a time as any. If how­ever, it’s a 935 you’re af­ter, then con­grat­u­la­tions on the size of your credit limit, be­cause you’re ob­vi­ously will­ing to shell out six fig­ures on a mo­tor you will prob­a­bly only be able to drive around your own liv­ing room. The last one we saw was a Le Mans car for­merly raced by Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Paul New­man, auc­tioned for $4.4 mil­lion back in Au­gust. At to­day’s ex­change rate, and with the ex­tra 10 per­cent auc­tion house fees, that roughly equates in Great Bri­tish Pounds to: a fuck­ing lot. Bet­ter start sav­ing.
