But it's faster, haha! :D
(Well, not faster than Simon's fettled T ;) )

They got the standard 0-62 mph time wrong, it's 4.5 sec, not 4.0 sec. :lol:

Simon, could I kindly ask what type of detailing you have had applied to your car. The car looks fantastic & I would like to do the same to my 718. Many thanks, John

Cheers! 👍

It’s a nice looking motor, but probably about 2.5 times what I’d get for mine!

And as Iva says, my modded T is probably at least as fast as that 992 T.

For that money, I’d much sooner have a nice 991.2 GT3. :twisted:

Hi John,

Thanks for your kind words. I’ll have to check with Jeeves (or the guys who detail my car). ;)

Cheers,

Simon

911 T @ £137k yet a £43k Volvo can out accelerate it.

Why bother with an expensive impractical cramped Sports Car when at a traffic light GP you are coming second?

If you don’t know the answer to that Col, you should not be allowed to even own a car! 😂😂

As indeed can a Macan these days, if you wanted to "keep it in the family".
