I may have said it before, but I’ll say it again: I am biased. I like Porsches. Always have, always will. I’ve never driven a Porsche I haven’t liked and I’ll go as far as to say that they’ve never made a bad car. Certainly there’ve been a couple which may not have been as [...]

So, what has a two-and-a-half-year gestation period and a six-week delivery? Easy – it’s not an elephant, it’s a Bentley tour of New Zealand. And it takes more than two to make it all happen, although, if I say so myself, as the team gets smaller the job gets easier, and between three of us, [...]
