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

THE TEAM STEVE BEN­NETT 996 C2

My 996 is booked in to my lo­cal body shop this very af­ter­noon. I will worry about the cost when it’s done. De­pend­ing on their sched­ule, I will hope­fully have more news and gory de­tails next month...

KEITHSEUME CAY­MAN 981

Had a shock when I dis­cov­ered the M5 mo­tor­way had been salted one Sun­day morn­ing, leav­ing the Cay­man look­ing a mess – cue trip to the jet wash to stop crusty brakes and sus­pen­sion.

CHRISHORTON 924S, 944

Full re­port next month – when there’s space in the mag­a­zine – and not least that front wing re­pair. In the mean­time I’m hope­ful that in a few days’ time I shall have a work­ing odometer. More on that soon, too.

PETER SIMP­SON 356C

The garage is on the way and the foun­da­tions started. The Porsches have been moved to make room, it’s just time and money now that stand in the way of the garage go­ing up and get­ting the cars in!

BRETT FRASER BOXSTER 3.2S

Ac­cord­ing to ev­ery­one on the in­ter­net, run­ning Miche­lin Pi­lot Cup Sport 2 tyres on my Boxster will be a dis­as­ter on the road in the wet, and soon I will be liv­ing in a ditch. Early days, but no ditches or hedges yet.

JOHNNY TI­PLER BOXSTER 3.2S

Call me a copy cat if you like, but I couldn’t re­sist a set of Group 4’s new deep dish Fuchs looka­likes. For a per­fect fit, I’m just wait­ing on some spac­ers, so full pics next month, plus some hood work, too.

JEREMY LAIRD BOXSTER 3.2 S

So how is the Cay­man to Boxster swap go­ing? Well, apart from a failed wa­ter pump, I’m lov­ing the seem­ingly back­wards step and I’ve slapped 5500-miles on the Boxster since pick­ing it up in July.
