New Stuttgart addition
« on: August 25, 2019, 13:24:54 »
Good morning folks,

Thought I would put up a photo of my latest acquisition with the group.   Beautiful and fun but from the wrong Stuttgart facility!   Looked a long time for a 997.2 C4S with manual transmission, not easy to find.  Having a good time with it along with the Benz’s.

Enjoy your travels!

Nice collection!

4S are beautiful!  Like the turbo-like fat rear fenders!

Thanks,

I love the back end on the C4S. 

Believe it or not, the CLS550 is slightly faster 0-60 than the Porsche.  The Porsche catches at the 1/4 mile and tops out at 185 mph!  Something I’ll never see.  But fun having a manual transmission again.
