Me and Jacqui got invited by Alfa to drive the 4c there, we did similar on the bowl, alpine course and mile straight

Was an amazing day and the 4c was way better than I thought it would be, to buy one at the time meant selling the Exige and I wasn't quite there to do that, plus you need a really wide garage for a 4c :o

Can’t remember seeing a 4C on the road. Wonder how many they have actually sold.

One of my friends dad's bought one, he stopped using it due to illness and struggled to sell it for what was the "current asking price". I seriously low balled him (£10k off) to try and buy it, but he turned me down as he didn't need the money, it took him another 6 months to sell it, a year in total! But he got close to his asking price in the end.
Other than his I've only seen two others, one was at last years Warren Classic

Awesome Will :cool:

Why don't you have a Caterham-shaped mid-life crisis instead? Guaranteed good times!

I may also be having an old-Pork-shaped mid-life crisis :o

Some excellent suggestions Ben. I'm not sort of options :)

What sort of vintage Pork are you looking at? 964?

I’m thinking a 996 gen1 GT3, same age as my S1. Maybe a Manthey Racing K400 modified one, maybe in black,..maybe get some nice BBS rims for it.

It may have progressed a little further than the ‘looking at’ stage :oops:
