993 Carrera S – what the camera doesn’t see

Then, we were joined by another photographer, shooting a brace of Infinitis (is that the correct plural?). And, finally, two trucks full of Portaloos appeared in the background – assumedly getting ready for the horse racing at Goodwood next week.
Still, with some judicious positioning of camera and car, and dodging showers, we managed to pull some decent shots out of the bag. Indeed, the stormy weather led to some great skies.
Now, your starter for ten – the Porsche is unique in this country. There isn’t another one like it. Why?

    Looks like a 2S, but can’t think of anything else that will make it special. Maybe a hint?

    So for guessing correctly you’ll send me the car, right?

  • If you cover the postage costs of £50,000 😉

    So, is this the ONLY UK-spec (…and, I’d therefore presume, the only RHD) factory-fit X51? I was wondering why they never pop up in the classifieds!

    What issue did this appear in? I’m not a T911 regular, but I’ll happily try to track down the back issue for this article.

    If it really is the only one, then this car is, to my eyes, THE most desireable Porsche ever! And the colour is a bonus!
