Spot of the Day Part 6

Spotted the other day, an immaculate red XJS V12. It had quad pipes out the back, which I am certain wasn't OEM.

Burbled beautifully with an unmistakeable v12 burble - was at low revs, trickling into our local Tesco Express car-park.

 

Cheers,

Alan.

(although personally I find myself wanting to go back and try it in a kei car such as a Honda Beat).

Having owned a Beat for the last 16 years,.that sounds great to me.

We don't quite have those kinds of driving roads here in southern Ontario but the ones that come close are indeed a blast to drive in my Beat.

Got invited by our local Porsche Centre for the 75th anniversary of Porsche. This means another 200 miles round-trip.

Another one of my absolute favourite 911, the 991.2 Speedster but now in Agate Grey Metallic. The interior in this particular car is rather tasty. Might be a boring black but spiced up nicely with yellow stitching and houndstooth fabric seat centre

I think this is the only 992 Sport Classic to be officially imported by our official Porsche distributor in Indonesia, the rest of it are from parallel imports. Typical launch spec of Sport Grey Metallic and Cognac interior. I'd delete the side decals if I got a chance to order one. Unlikely, though, I'm too poor.

A 2010 997 Carrera GTS, back when GTS cars meant run-out, end-of-lifecycle addition to pack all the recommended options plus power package for a more affordable price than going all individual. Nowadays GTS just meant the most expensive non-Turbo non-Motorsport products.

993 Turbo in Basalt Black. My friend said once this appeared he could not be bothered with the modern Porsches. Can't blame him, 993 Turbos are rare as hen's teeth here. I think I only know of 2 other cars, one in Basalt Black like this one and the other in a pale mustard yellow (Pastelgelb, if I remembered correctly).

This is a 991-gen 911 Club Coupe. Only 13 were made to celebrate 60th anniversary of the first Porsche Club back in 2012. Unfortunately this one is finished in a rather boring colour of white. A special US-only 911 GTS Club Coupe got the rather spiffing colour called Club Blue.

An original 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RS America displayed at Porsche Centre Jakarta, finished in Midnight Blue Metallic. Think of it as a nerfed Americanised version of 964 Carrera RS, with engine and gearbox from standard Carrera 2, chassis and SOME lightweighting upgrades from European-market Carrera RS, and seats and brakes from 964 Turbo. Only 701 unit were made for US market, and I don't know how this one made its way to Indonesia...

A gorgeous 1973 911S 2.4 in what I suspect is Gulf Orange. That RS-like ducktail is just perfect.

IMG-5684.jpg

An Alpine White BMW 1M Coupe. This is my favourite M car of all time, with E92 M3 and current G81 M3 Touring in distant second. The way it looks is just perfect, felt like a weekend fun project cobbled together by BMW M engineers as some sort of weekend toy for road use. Even the lack of V8 under the bonnet does not stop it from being fantastic.

An EVO VIII MR fitted with rather brutal Voltex aero kits. This car saw plenty of upgrades including Cosworth brake upgrades, fully rebuilt engine (details of which I could not find from the workshop's Instagram page), the aforementioned Voltex Racing aero kits and wide front and rear fenders. Because standard EVO VIII are not wide enough to fit the new wheels and brake kits.

A 2021 Nismo GT-R SV in my favourite spec of Stealth Grey. This is the same car I posted waaaay before, and is owned by the same guy who owned the EVO VIII above.

The late owner liked Fords, The Galaxy and Mustang are 1972, the T Bird is 1970. The pick ups are 1952, and 1954.

 

And today, I saw a Mk 5 Cortina.

Looks in lovely condition, I can well imagine it's fun to drive on the twisties. Never knew they came in bronze, but it suits it to my eyes.
