Note from the Editor
This months magazine features some very iconic cars with a significant variation in price and geographic origin, namely England, Germany and Italy. This goes to show that at all price points there are interesting cars out there to own and enjoy.
The first car is the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, the 996 generation version. The 996 was the first watercooled 911 and divided opinion with journalists and Porsche owners. The Carrera 4S is now seen as the sweet spot of the range, as it has the facelifted headlights and dashboard while retaining the unmistakable 911 Turbo widebody. The Carrera 4S represents great value for money as it not only shares the wide bodyshell, but also the suspension and brakes from the twin turbo supercar. Prices are currently half of the 996 Turbo and this has created a huge amount of interest among collectors. I’d recommend buying one before everyone realises how good they are, the perfect blend of classic looks and modern build quality.
The second car is the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4, which I think is incredibly undervalued compared to the Ferrari 488 GTB and Porsche GT3 models. Whilst the later two command massive premiums, the Huracán does not. Yet the Lamborghini has all the performance and capability of the Ferrari, with added theatre and excitement. Without a doubt, the baby V10 Lamborghini represents great value for money in the modern supercar sector.
The third car we are featuring this month is the Lotus Evora GT430, which is the first legitimate claim to overthrow the Porsche GT3 and GT4 from the track king limelight they have held on to for so long. The GT430 is the most powerful and fastest production Lotus of all time, and it is a phenomenal track car as proven by our owner Mark Allin. The low production numbers ensure it will always remain coveted too.
