Porsche 911 997 4S Cabrio

August 27th, 2007 · 1 Comment

This nice Porsche was parked just next door. I haven’t seen it before, so it probably isn’t a resident. Oh well, a nice car is a nice car! And it is hard, not to like a Porsche cabrio.

You can’t spot them all…

but why oh why did I miss a Spyker?! I was browsing through the site, when I suddenly run into a Spyker C8 Spyder. Nothing strange on a car spotting site, one would say, but I recognize my house in the background! Check out Spyker C8 Spyder on autogespot for the pictures. This sleek […]
