Cheers guys!

It's good to see some interest for the 924 from everywhere!!
How do you get the mag here in France Mikseymono? Is it coming directly to your home? I wonder when i will get mine :?:

I don't have very much time to spend on my 924...
I would love to have it here in Annecy, it's snowing today, and 924 + snow = good fun :lol:



Comes direct to my home via La Poste. Takes a bit longer...but worth the wait!

The last issue was published at the start of January so you joined too late to get that. The next one will be out in a month or so and that will be posted to you.

But all the past issues of the magazine are available to members in electronic form here so you don't need to feel left out:

Welcome to the club, or should I say, bienvenue au club! I lived in France for 15 years and only moved back to the UK this year. I lived in the Vienne, Deux-Sevres and Cotes d’Armor. It is good to see another 924 owner in France. In Brittany, there were a very few 924s, and up until a couple of years ago, my S was the only one in the whole region! I can confirm that the club will happily send you the magazine to France, as I have been a member for most of the past 11 years. Hopefully you will enjoy your 924 ownership and promote them to other French classic car owners. Bonne route!

There are actually three that I know of now in Brittany! Arno Bordet from Porchistes d’Emeraude has two, which he is restoring. One of them is a 924S Le Mans! Keep the 924 vibe alive in the region for me! :beer:

Nice shot Mikseymono, blue sky here as well, but i took the mountainbike for a spin.

Thanks for the link Finbarr i know now how to spend my lunchtime!

And Bretongirl, merci!

There are lots of 924s hidden but saddly most of them are not running or abandonned, i know at least 4 or 5 cars here in the alps... but only half of them are running properly!

So, just one on the road then ;-) I wonder if there is a French version of howmanyleft.co.uk?

We have a club for front engined porsches here in France, and they are doing something like that.
I will probably put myself on the list once my car will be okay but its to soon :oops:

Thanks Helian. I am an internet member on that as well!

But that site relies on people putting their car details in rather than automatic. More of a census rather than exact numbers. Like in the UK with MOT etc. I guess it would have to be linked to insurance or maybe the CT over here to as to get accurate numbers. Either way, don't see that many!
