OT, but with 930 content...

Had to show off the new ride, told the wife I needed the extra umph for towing purposes...



Never thought I'd be a Jeep guy...

You're not alone, there're few of us with Jeeps in the garage also... "it is a Jeep thing"; as well as "there is no substitute".

True enough:

Is that the one with the center-exit exhaust? I always wondered how you get a tow hitch there.

Does it come with a factory trailer brake lever?

Nice truck, but the white car looks much better

fletcher0780 whose blue 911 is in the background there?

Take care!

The 2012 has split exhaust, the receiver is under the SRT cover. The brembos on this thing are massive, so it goes fast and stops on a dime.




No manual brake control, but it does have separate brake controller wiring, it'll control the braking on its own.

I'll remember that excuse for the day a 930 follows me home

The car in the background is actually a friends '86 930.

Here is a pic of his and mine together someone snapped last weekend leaving a local car show.

Nice Ride! I really like those.
I drive an '01 4.0 to work everyday and love it for inexplicable reasons...

Nice photo! Those colors go well together. Is that a CT antique plate? Where in CT are you guys? (you can PM).

Take care!

We are both located in Ashford, CT which is near UConn. Thanks for the compliment, I contacted the photographer and got a full resolution version of the picture.
