Octane Magazine have surpassed themselves again. Hot on the heels of 'Aesthete' Stephen Bayley's mistake-ridden Halberstam-lite article 'Zen and the art of the Z' in the December 2015 issue, Tony Dron has come up with an absolute classic. Dron - like Bayley - has a monthly column in Octane called 'Passed it!' (wait for it...). In the February 2016 issue - already on the shelves - he dedicates his column to a story regarding an experience he had with a 240Z in November 1971. Not any old 240Z, this one. It was apparently none other that "the UK's first road test 240Z"... Mr Dron goes on to mention that the 240Z's external dimensions, wheelbase and front track "followed" those of the Porsche 911. Fair enough you might think, but he follows this up with a bit of a clanger; "That was a deliberate part of the 240Z's 2+2 design...". I don't know about anyone else, but I've never noticed any more than two seats in a 240Z. If there are more, could somebody tell me where...? It's not just a typo. Dron then goes into Len Deighton mode, recounting a story (I won't spoil it for you) of being flagged down in Kensington High Street by what appeared to be two KGB agents, and forced to take them to a cinema in London's West End. He had one in the front, and one "in the back"... The one in the back in a suitcase, perhaps? 'Passed It!'? You might well think that, but I couldn't possibly comment.
