Happy New Year - 996TT Year 2011 in Review

Recommended Posts

As quite some time passed since my last posting here and in my blog I figured let's write something about 2011:

Almost three month have passed since my last posting - incredible, nothing special happened in all this time. The car ran smoothly, a regular maintenance was done at 140'000km (86'800mls) in December 2011.

So the 996 Turbo year 2011 in Numbers:

- 24'100 km covered (15'000mls)

- 3'314 liters of fuel burned (875 US Gallons)

- Avg of 12.9 liters per 100km (18.23 US mpg)

- Peak at 30.8 liters per 100km on the German Autobahn (7.64 US mpg)

- Low mark at 10.6 liters per 100km (22.19 US mpg)

- In this time I added three times 1 liter of oil

- All on the same winter and summer rubbers, new rubbers will be due this spring and next winter

Best Pictures of 2011:


Drift Training @ Boxberg Test Center


Same Day in the high speed oval


Common casual 911 gathering at the Nurburgring - It's a people's car here


I welded a statue out of all the repair leftovers of 2010, from trash to beauty.


Not an everyday car? Christmas tree shopping and...


Ski vacation at new years eve with a lot of snow fall


Picture two days later, it took half an hour to free the poor car from snow.

So, in terms of reliability and repairs 2011 was a good year and I look forward to get used to it and 2012 of course :-). All the best for you all - happy motoring in 2012!
