Porsche Carrera 993 Ducktail.
Agreed it's a ducktail
Volkswagen Beetle- same thing anyway
I think that is a Carrera GT
It's........................A CAR, I win !!
Its a wide body, non-ducktail normally aspirated 996 C4S.
OEM ducktails not available on this model.
This ones easy - on the face of it.. the devil is in the detail...
V12 E-Type Roadster
One of my Favourites
ok, ill ask, how do you know its a V12?
but definitely E-type roadster. looking at the vertical headlights id say a series 3 version
It was the depth of the air intake/grille, the headlights are not faired in, by that I mean they are not streamlined by a glass cowling over them. Those were the clues as far as I was concerned. There are possibly other clues but they were the ones that made me think V12
The main clue Pete, is the depth of the air intake/grille
There were very few S3s made without the V12 so balance of probability for me.
fair enough. I just thought the bigger grille and headlights was a series 3 thing. saying that, the 4.2 I drove (1967 registered so I'm guessing a series 1) was plenty quick enough, especially considering it was 8 years older than me! no idea how much faster (where it matters rather than outright top speed) the V12 was, but it drove amazingly well for (at the time) a car almost 40 years old and one that had WORKED for its keep (it had a TOWBAR on it and was used by the farmer to tow a trailer to auction in its early days!!!)
I couldn't believe my eyes when the guy who had owned it (either personally or within the family) from new sold it for a 3.0 Marcos!!!
Have I missed something, there doesn't seem to have been a conclusion to this thread as to what I assume to be the final reveal ?
Sorry - I've been on holiday so all a bit of a panic just before. Its a S3 V12
