Smile German Cousins of BM :)

Hey folks at it once again in the Pcars!! As you can tell I have a HUGE affinity towards them and my wife has caught on as well. Two Bimmers in our garage for now but one day my first Pcar will be in there and BM will be moved out into the cold.

Anyways thanks to a very good friend of mine who pulled a few strings my wife and I were able to attend the Porsche World Roadshow. Event took place this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway that consisted of an autocross and a performance drive course. We both got to drive a wide array of Pcars:
Boxster, BoxsterS, Cayman, CaymanS, CaymanR, Porsche Spyder, Carrera, CarreraS, Carrera 4S and maybe another or so I can't recall??
Needless to say we definitely had a blast ripping up the track in the Porsche.
The sound of these babies was intoxicating

Enjoy the pics
(FYI sorry guys not good with editing to resize them)

Done a few of these Roadshows and the first one, back in early 2001 made me sell my Boxster and get into a 911. Very effective marketing.

Thanks guys!! ^^^Funny u say that my friend has a GT2RS. Got rid of his 997 GT2 for it. After seeing the 2RS I told him I liked the 997GT2 much better. His reply was, "me too and was much faster". Of course he had it highly modded. The 2RS is nice on paper but the CF everywhere makes it look rather cheap and plasticy (if even a word)??

To each his own anyways thanks for the replies.
