Interesting video on their choices for ‘analog’, but overall I like the trio. Interesting that they chose that particular 986 Boxster, as it has e-gas (electronic throttle, standard on 2003/2004) as well as stability management/PASM (optional). But overall the 986 is still a good choice, though I’m biased as I own a…
Well, this is brave.
We head out to drive and camp Highway 666 (191) to commune with the devil, as one does.
As I write this, I’m eagerly anticipating the moment I can get my hands on Brandon Sanderson’s new work, Oathbringer. It’s the third book in The Stormlight Archive, his epic fantasy series taking place on the Cosmere (the collective universe where many of his works take place) world of Roshar. Looking to my left, I…
It was about time we went car camping in the 911 again. It’d been 2 years since our 3500 honeymoon roadtrip.
It’s not the cold weather that truly frightens car enthusiasts, or the snow. Snow tires and some donuts in a parking lot, just practicing slide recovery, officer. We’re good to go after that.
This of course (although the first few were 901s until Peugeot had a hissy fit). Note how thin the pillars are and how much glass there is.
It was a good weekend. 800 miles, 2 nights camping, Highway 666. So many turns... More later. Must sleep.
Porsche’s very own teaser. Driver looks like he want’s to eat a baby after driving the T to the top of a hill.
A Cassis Red 911, looks nice on the 928 too imo
I don’t remember much of what happened 16 years ago. I was in first grade then, and my mum had just walked me to the bus stop when the first plane hit.
United Airlines Flight 93 had been hijacked and was bound for Washington, DC when the passengers decided to fight back against the terrorists who had commandeered the plane. Realizing that they would soon gain access to the cockpit, the terrorist pilot deliberately dove towards the ground and crashed near Shanksville,…
Even a crime boss like me find the attacks unimaginable. However, I am more disgusted at what happened afterward.
It’s very 911-focused.
I shall continue to call it a 911 until someone tells me not to.
Car and Driver has a pretty solid generation by generation overview of the 911 generations. I particularly like that you can see the lengths of each car compared.
So we all know most cars are passed down as they age to poorer and poorer second third and fourth owners. Some cars however become classics, and then it all gets pretty weird.
Jacked up drain plug was causing the Beetle to leak oil. Dealer said it was the incorrect drain plug - it’s a retired rental so I imagine it was lumped in with a bunch of other cars for oil changes all at the same time and things get mixed up. Who knows, it’s fixed now.
