Most weeks see me heading off somewhere, usually by train, to collect a Porsche that we are taking into stock. Of course, we could just use a transport company to move cars around but I much prefer to do it myself, for two reasons. First, I enjoy travelling and driving. Usually, it’s within England, but occasionally I’ve been over to the Channel Islands (which is always a treat) and next week I’m flying up to Aberdeen to collect a Porsche 996 Carrera 4S.

This 75-litre case weighs just 3.9kg and comes complete with four wheels (a four-wheel drive Porsche, then!) and a telescopic handle. It fits in the front of a modern 911, Boxster or Cayman.

I was chatting about an old Porsche GB press car with some Twitter friends yesterday and wondered what had happened to it. The car in question was a 2006 997 Carrera finished in silver with black leather. It boasted Sport suspension, PCCB and not much else in the way of options, back it a refreshingly pure 911 to drive. It sticks in my mind because I drove it to France in search of an ancestor’s war grave – a memorable trip for many reasons, not least because of the car. It was the perfect illustration that less is often more […]
