Very nice.
Now here's a question.
Ever tried to fit a road bike frame in the back?

You know you want to Kim. Just admit that you are going to eventually own a 911. :D

Car looks good Michael, can't wait to see it. 8-)

Coming from Lotuses too, one does look at the more track oriented breeds of the 911. Try a boggo 911...properly....I think you'll be happy for at least a few years! :mrgreen: My fear with the GT3 etc it's edginess might get in the way of cross-country progress satisfaction.....However! I've never driven one :? ...and I end up buying what I test drive....each time....so, I ain't going near one....for a goooood while....... (£!)

GT3 has a big picnic table spoiler though - so that might qualify as a bike rack ;) which would be helpful....for your toddler....

I think Keith genuinely wants to know if his bike will fit inside a 997.

I do.
There is definitely enough space for a road frame with wheels off.
The question is whether there is a big enough aperture between door/seat to place it in.
This information could fundamentally affect a possible purchase.

Great looking 997

On the road frame front I think on the roof is the best option

There is a lot of soft trim in the rear of a 997 that could easily get damaged when trying to get a frame in.

with the seats at the back folded is would just sit on carpet....although there's the back of the front seats to consider I suppose...and that back window is quite thin.... :shock:
