1 Mar 2003 - registry membership has surpassed the 200 mark!

On February 24th this year the 200th member joined the registry.
Membership numbers continue to increase as news of the registry and the website spreads. With a significant portion of owners of the 701 ever made now in the registry, membership should grow more rapidly as there are more people spreading the word. Looking at the distribution of members per the Registry statistics page, it seems that it would be worthwhile organizing a registry gathering in Southern CA. Perhaps the weekend of June 7th and 8th at the California Speedway in Fontana would be a good venue for at least an corral. If this is something you might be interested in participating in, please let me know and, subject to getting sufficient positive response, I will look into organizing it.

Site updates include a new article on Cup Car Performance upgrade package from Bert R of MD, plus further additions to the Photo Gallery page where registry members are given a FREE page on the site to post data and images of their cars. If you would like your own page on the website - e-mail me some pictures or data you would like posted (don't forget to give me permission to post it) and I will create a page for you.

I continuously receive questions on all things by e-mail, with approximately two 3rds of them being already answered on the website. I'm not sure whether people can't find data on the site or just can't be bothered to look. Once the forum is up I hope to have to spend less time answering inquiries. Questions range from “Do you know of any for sale?” to “Where can I buy a cup holder for my ?”(honest!). I am continuing to add the less frivolous questions (along with their answers) to the FAQ's page.

In the interests of establishing the weight of an I would like to canvas registry members to develop a database. So, if you have had your weighed, please could you e-mail me with the following:

  1. What does your weigh with a full tank of fuel?
  2. Is your car stock?
  3. Does your car have a sunroof?
  4. Does your car have LSD?
  5. Does your car have Air conditioning?

If you have not received the registry newsletter by e-mail, I probably don't have your latest e-mail address. Please hit contact me to e-mail your latest info.

Do you know how many other Porsche® 911 models utilize the same rear spoiler or “whaletail” as the ?
