Latest courtesy car from Porsche 😐
Have you tried to enter or leave the back seat? I tried on one on the Goodwood FOS BMW stand about 2 years ago. Very awkward basically a two seater apart for agile children.
Not yet. I’ll try to remember to try the back seat before I give it back. Legroom in front and back seems decent. And the boot’s a good size. I guess actually getting into the back may be harder than say an X3, due to the sloping, coupé-like roofline. :geek: I don’t like the looks, personally.

While they have the engine out, to fit the two new turbos, they have diagnosed the cause of the coolant leak. They’re saying it’s the heat exchanger. Additional cost of £1,358.84. Ouch! :(

What kind of warranty work have you had done on yours?

I think with this additional work (and a 2 year warranty on the new parts) I’m more likely to keep my T for some while longer...

Just wait till a certain brake pipe needs replacing. A mate in our club region, has a newish model 911. Mot failure on the pipe that goes between the two rear wheels (over the bulkhead, inside the engine bay). Engine out, and the all the other associated problems that go wi that. Bill for £2500, ouch.

I know what you mean though. 911s are special, and us owners can be very forgiving! :)
