Toy Cars – Surrey Porsche Meet 17th August 2017

Afternoon all! I thought you’d like to see a few shots from yesterday evening’s 911UK meet in Cobham Surrey. This was a last minute affair for me as I got a message earlier in the day from a mate asking if I wanted to come along to see and see what turns up.

As it happens some pretty special machinery was on show, not all from the Porsche stable either. There was a great mix of modern models, modern classics and some vintage 911s too.

This rather new 991.2 GT3 4.0 arrived and looked as if this was probably one of its first ever journeys, looking exceptionally showroom fresh.

I managed to get my 986 Boxster S cleaned up and she didn’t look out of place at all, even as the cheapest car there.

The vintage models put on a strong display, including this 53 year old 356 C Coupe. A great example of one of the classic models that has seen huge value appreciation of the past 10 years. This one in particular has see it’s value quadruple since the current owner bought it 17 years ago.

The two non-Porsche standouts were this Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and a brand spanking new McLaren 720S. At a time when most car companies are developing their cars with the mechanical parts hidden from view, the 720S is a welcome change. From the back end almost everything in on show through the mesh between the exhausts and behind that rear diffuser.

Here’s a quick gallery of the shots from last night.
