foto of the day. cool or too much?

Yes i am in the midst of loving 911s.  Especially 997s and 60s/70s models.  This attempts to join those two worlds…..unclear whether i support this or not, however i am enjoying the photo of a 997 with Martini livery!

It is a modified 997 Turbo called “EVT700” and here’s where you can read the article in GTPorsche about the car…

  3. […] i had posted back in December about the Porsche 911 EVT700 and it’s mad over the top livery treatment—–but here’s that same car parked in London.  I have to say—–it is absurd, attention whore-ish, and a bit vulgar—-but i like it. […]
