    Unverified Ownership Fried eggs, now or never – Porsche 911 Carrera '98

    Yeah my plan was to load one film and shoot it during my drive. I love black and white (and BW makes the gas station shot), but this time color would've been the best. Or I could've brought my DSLR, but that often leads to too serious photography. Film is nice, you plan ahead, frame carefully...

    Unverified Ownership Fried eggs, now or never – Porsche 911 Carrera '98

    Went for a drive few weeks ago, and only took my good old Canonet QL17 film camera with me. Despite of the ongoing situation we're free to move around, which is very refreshing. Local countryside was still few weeks away from turning back to green. Totally empty roads, so much fun to just...

    Unverified Ownership Fried eggs, now or never – Porsche 911 Carrera '98

    Passanger side airbag was relatively new idea when the dash was designed, so that probably also had something to do with it. Some rumors say the base dash was originally designed for the 993 generation, but budged didn't allow that change. It might be just a rumor of course. I didn't know...

    Unverified Ownership Fried eggs, now or never – Porsche 911 Carrera '98

    Little more than a year ago I got back to film photography, just for fun. I like old cameras as mechanical devices. I also thought that maybe I could become better photographer by slowing down a bit, and film is great way to do that. But mostly it was for fun. I took the long way home after...

    Thanks! Writing is a good way to process thoughts. I remember that article well, the pictures were excellent!

    Yeah, I get that. It's kinda shame that there isn't any real modern equivalent.

    Unverified Ownership Fried eggs, now or never – Porsche 911 Carrera '98

    Thanks! Yeah I too like the spec. Of course it would be great to have full leather interior and such luxuries, but then again this still feels very basic sports car. It feels like it's made to be driven instead of being admired. Like a slightly grown up Miata.

    Thanks everybody! No, Posambique isn't the other owner, he isn't on the forums. Posambique was a huge help when buying the car and helping to do the pre-purchase inspection. Italian import: apparently Italian economy was doing pretty great at the turn of the millennium, so they bought a lot of...

    Unverified Ownership Fried eggs, now or never – Porsche 911 Carrera '98

    One day last autumn I realized that I need a 911. Then I remembered that I had that same thought the day before. And the day before that. And before that. There was only one cure. A 911. Funnily the 911s were not my favourite cars when I was a kid. Porsches felt distant, cold and old...

    I understand why most of us are probably wondering what the hell you're doing, but I know how long you've been talking about this car, and I'm really happy you got it. I'm also really interested to see how it drives. It's really difficult to guess, since there isn't quite anything like it. Is it...

    Not many can steal attention from a V10 sports car, but whenever somebody mentions the name Viper, I'll remember you Alex.

    2019 Icetrack Meet - Return of the Ditch!

    While I took awful lot of pictures, I only had the camera out on a few occasions. Most pictures involve the mighty Sierra, Lexus, Panda, Tesla or 130i. I completely missed the E-class, even if it was the car I drove almost as much as the Sierra. I'll make another gallery from phone pics, but for...

    Hey the Mazda never overheated! Coolant temp rose once a bit due to overly enjoying the Total Eclipse of My Heart. :D

    Awesome Thread... [Automotive Edition]

    Thanks! I had my trusty Canon with me, but to be honest, I was so astonished that I just froze and stared the rear lights of the VW. I grabbed few snaps when the car was far away, but darkness combined with around 160 mph or more made them quite blurry. But yeah, it would've made a great video :lol:

    Awesome Thread... [Automotive Edition]

    On the other day something happened, and I think it fits awesome thread better than random thoughts. First of all I was lucky enough to get the latest 991.2 GT3 into my possession for one day. A manual even. I'm not going to waste this space telling how great it is or that I can say with quite...

    Our "own" car reviews

    Cupra really comes to life with the performance pack. It brings four pot Brembos to front axle and switches from those Continentals to Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s. Strangely, the chassis can cope with the grip levels: on dry tarmac it becomes %#"%#"#"%"#:n fast road car. The electro-hydraulic...
