Not a great time to buy Porsche's IMO. Why? Well the engine line up is in the process of being updated to the A92 family with DFI. The tranny is under going change and so is the exterior (albeit minor changes) ...

Doctorque, I am interested in getting my self the GT2 next year (updated version) and I wanted your help. Would you suggest one for daily driving or would you suggest the Turbo over the GT2 for daily driving? My main concern being ground clearance . Please advise on pro's and cons.

P.S - What does PWRS mean?

Just a picture of the lineup. Doctorque pls do post some good pictures as i just managed a bad one from the Car.
The Boxster S bad colour choice, prefer it in other colours. Cayman S great but the Decal shouts read my name. The turbo cabriolet is peice of art. Just loved it. The Cayenne S now what to say.

Well, i think i know the chap who apparently won the Porsche. He paid the relevant tax, sold the car and bought himself a 2007 gixxer 1000

I was in the ML when i took the picture but it was last night itself (first thing i did on my return). The car is used daily so it might have been My brother or father useing the car.

Oh yes it does . Only hitch no space to take a run up. .
I hope it is left like this, but since the cars do get sold and leave they should be replaced with others. Two same cars on display do get boreing. I love the current set up, i can watch it for hours without getting bored.

Beautiful pictures Doc. The Turbo looks out of this world. I also liked the white Carrera though.
