End of the road..
…until the morning that is. Well it’s been a long day but the Targa has served us well. As a long distance cruiser it’s faultless. 27mpg without trying to be frugal, and the hatchback is a real boon if you have luggage (in our case Ali’s photo gear).
The softer than normal suspension is also ideal for cruising. However, on the superb winding roads we found in Scotland itcwas a mixed blessing. Yes, the compliance was useful on rough surfaces and actually aided handling. On the whole, though, I found it too soft on the twisties. Wallow is too strong a word but I can’t think of a better one at this time.
But it would be unfair to critisise the Targa for this. It’s handling was still great and I thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, I’d go as far as to say it’s the ideal all-round 911 for everyday use.
And we even got the roof open for the glorious sunny evening we had. Speaking of sub, it’s still light here at 10pm.
Thanks to Howard in the US who offered to buy me a drink in California. If only…
9 hour drive home tomorrow but that’s it for today.
