    Sounds about right. That livery (Hippie livery) is from the 70s, so everyone were most likely on drugs...

    Lens Flair

    From the Porsche Festival previously this month: It’s a recreation of a Porsche 917K, painted in the 1970s psychedelic livery. It’s a very accurate recreation based on original schematics, but using carbon fibre for the bodywork. The only thing missing is a flat-12 engine as that would make...

    "Greatest" "American" "car" designs "from the modern era"

    I think the faux grille was there just to make it look as much as possible like a “normal” car, to appeal to buyers of ordinary fossil cars. I have to say the design still looks modern and contemporary today, despite being a decade old. Today I think that faux grilles on electric vehicles just...

    Norwegian GT-championship

    During the Porsche festival at Rudskogen Raceway, there was a couple of rounds of the Norwegian GT championship with the three classes of GT+, GT1, and GT3. Since this was a little different from the Porsche event, I thought it would be OK to put this in a separate thread. GT+ are the most...

    "Greatest" "American" "car" designs "from the modern era"

    It may be controversial here, but I think the greatest American car design from the modern era does not come from Detroit, but California. The Tesla Model S. I my opinion, it was the automotive industry's "iPhone moment".

    Russia and Ukraine

    I'm having a hard time believing that this "just happened". I mean three leaks, all of them in parts of the pipeline that is in international waters... I guess we will have to buff up the security around the gas pipes from Norway to the continent.

    2022 Porsche Festival

    Now, lets take a look at some of the static displays. The first one of these was a very clever one with a 60s 911 put up against a 992, separated by some spaced out mirrors: Then there was the Mission R, that had a separate pit garage: The Vision Gran Turismo, a full-size mockup: A...

    2022 Porsche Festival

    There was a nice collection of transaxle (the 911 also technically has a transaxle, but you know what I mean) Porsches there, many 944s, some 924s and a couple of 928s. A tastefully modified 944 together with a 964 Carrera RS A tidy original 944 with the original "tele dial" wheels: A 944...

    2022 Porsche Festival

    If you feel there is too little 924/944 (parsh?) here, I’m going to make a separate 924/944 post, as there were a good amount of them, they even had a separate race for them.

    2022 Porsche Festival

    992 GT3 Cup car: A 981 Cayman GT4 and 718 Cayman GT4 RS: A pair of classic 914s: A 935: Then there was these two impressive 917 replicas, built with original schematics, the only thing missing was the flat-12, as according to the guy who built it, that would have tripled the cost of...

    2022 Porsche Festival

    Last weekend I went to the 2022 Porsche festival at Rudskogen raceway, about one hour south-east of Oslo. The event featured a display of lots of Porsches, as well as some track action with the Scandinavian Porsche Cup, a display of historic Porsche cars running around the track, a 944/924-Cup...

    Random Thoughts... [Photographic Edition]

    A fast normal prime is always a good tool to have in the bag. However, personally I'm not too keen on the 50mm equivalent, I prefer a wider field of view. Since I'm on mFT I have a 17mm f1.2 lens for that.

    New gas station not far from my parents house. Looking at the prices it’s more than 1,5 NOK price difference between petrol and diesel. Sign says the price per litre is: Diesel: 21,88 NOK (€2,25/l = $8,46/gallon) Petrol: 20,33 NOK (€2,09/l = $7,86/gallon)

    Using Windows 11 through Parallells 18 on an M2 MacBook Air: https://youtu.be/q9SCt-jqsg4 TLDW: It performs better than a comparable Windows laptop in many ways, but there are some compatibility issues, for now.
