Jul 30, 2009 update to the Porsche 911 Carrera project car

People and Books

The Porsche made its public debut at this past weekend's Orlando Automobile Club's Cars and Café gathering.
Light, summertime reading.

We realize that these two topics—may not exactly go together, but call it our latest update.

The car made its public debut this past weekend at a Cars and Café event hosted by the Orlando Automobile Club. Their monthly events attract a wide range of cars, with a high concentration of late-model exotics—Lamborghinis, Porsches and Ferraris are common.

Ferrari of Tampa Bay had two neat exotics on display, an Alfa Romeo 8C as well as a new Ferrari California. We noticed several people checking out our Porsche, and supposedly some nice things were overheard.

We also received some light reading: a new Bentley service manual. Let’s hope that we don’t wind up reading it by the side of the road.

And on a relatively unrelated note, new tires have been ordered for the Porsche. We’re going back to the original brand fitted on our car, Pirelli.

Welcome to the world of 911 ownership. It is a good looking car, and you found the secret: the midyears (Impact Bumpers) are not that expensive. I look forward to your updates.
