And boy do I suddenly need a 996 in this color

Because all I want to do is play around in Photoshop instead of work on the pile of shit I neglected for the past two weeks.

Been tuned in for about 9 of the 12 hours. Wife hasn’t complained once, but she put up with sitting in the Mulsanne woods at 3am last summer, so if that didn’t trigger a complaint I’m not sure what would.

But for now here are the cars from our campsite car park (please ignore the poor quality of composition, angles, and lighting. Most of these were taken in a rush and I was in a daze from having just driven down the Mulsanne straight):
