After a lightning burger stop I swapped places with Hammond. After another few miles I was able to make several entries in something called the ‘Porsche Fartenbuch', which I found in the glovebox, and the exact purpose of which eludes us. But I'm sure the Porsche team will find it hugely amusing when they read it.
This was Hammond's cue to start a rant about why Porsche should only ever make the 911. I like bating him on this one, but secretly I'm inclined to agree. I cannot conceive of circumstances in which I'd walk into a Porsche showroom with that sort of money and not come out with a nicely specced Carrera 2S. In fact, I'd come out with a slightly meanly specced Carrera 2S and spend the savings on a Fiat Panda. I've already got the Panda so I've at least put my first instalment where my mouth is.
