    The one that starts!
    Very nice, it has taken many years but these modern 911's are really growing on me now!

    Of course, i did 44,000 miles in the C63 and enjoyed them all

    They are very different cars to drive, C2 & C63 but interestingly i achieved very similar lap times and top speeds at Goodwood

    The C2 isnt as popular in the uk people prefer the 2S
    The Germans however prefer the C2 to the C2S
