I checked, and (thankfully) it wasn’t.

    Where’s the ///M badge?

      That’s right, and the only acceptable turbo badge is a copy of one off of a 996 turbo.

    No CSE, no nuthin.

    OK – thread hijack. I visited my parents last weekend (1200 mile round trip in my BRZ) and found these photos of my grandparents on a motorcycle and in their first car. The bike photo is dated 1922 and the car 1924. Anybody have a clue as to the make/models of these vehicles?

      Is this in Germany?

      Because a 1924 Opel 4/12 PS looks close…

        Yes – Germany. It probably is an Opel – Thanx.

      The motorcycle looks to be some sort of Wanderer, perhaps a 4PS.

        Thanx – good lead.

    Slightly on-topic…
    My dad has an unusually large collection of small ’50’s-’60’s British cars compared to the average South Dakota farmer, at 5:
    -a green Mk1 Sprite (where the paint hasn’t been sanded off to do bodywork), no powertrain currently installed
    -a graygrey Morris Minor 1000 2-door sedansaloon, ~1959, 948cc
    -a red Mk2 Sprite, 1098cc, adapted to a Borg-Warner T-50 w/ ‘dogleg’ shift pattern from a small ’70’s GM car [sidebar: I never understood why the dogleg pattern is supposed to be confusing, since it’s identical to a US-conventional 3-speed till the 3-4 shift… then again, it was Captain Slow that had the dogleg-pattern Mercedes in that one Top Gear UK cheap sporty sedan episode…]
    -a red Mk4 Sprite, 1275cc
    -a yellow rubber-bumper Midget, 1500cc
    I was at the farm over Easter weekend and helped my dad with a few things on the Minor to bring it out of a quarter-century of hibernation. I know the Mini is hailed as Issigonis’ masterwork, but the Minor is rather clever for a conventional FR-layout car. (It felt weird to find the brake master cylinder under the driver floorboard, though…)
