I drove a carry as a delivery van 10 years ago. It was fun/crap in a fun way to drive, but it was pretty hard to fit my large sunday into. It definitely fit, but only just.
Thanks, that’s good to know. I’ll take my bike with me when I go and look at One.

probs a 996
My old man picked up a 996 turbo a couple of months ago. He’s always got at least a couple of classics sports cars he’s working. Various porsches over the last few years.

But holy shit, that 996 turbo is seriously disturbing to drive (on public roads anyway). The NA ones are well fast enough and nice progressive acceleration. The turbo is batshit crazy, well past my comfort limits nowadays.

Lovely chassis and handling though.

Still, it’s always nice to get back into my hilux boat so I can just relax in slow wallowy comfort.

If you think a 996 turbo chassis is overpowered for the road try any GT2!

Fucking what?

That's just like someone chucking dirt tires on a road bike and calling it a new genre
Lol, you may be right. But it’s a thing, lots have been done. It’s lighter than the porker engine and makes a shit tonne more torque.

it’s done to Boxsters as well.
