    I am not sure it's the prettiest but I do like it. But will Nick be happy driving it? With all the spectacular cars he owns, getting in to this dinosaur and driving it would be like going from a F 35 to a single prop airplane.cheeky Oh well, there is no explaining the effect of nostalgia.indecision

     

    Nick, there are some cars that are enjoyable to drive while going the speed limit.  Even if the mood strikes him to drive this ancient car only once a month, it will be worth it.

     

    I don't disagree. I certainly have had my moments in some of the "classics" but I would never own one unless it's an investment. yes

    I'm not a fan of classics, never was. I love new stuff, electronics, cars, it always has to be the latest gadgetry.

    The only car I could imagine buying and keeping is the new Huracan Performante. It just represents everything I am looking for in a fun car right now. Luckily, I cannot afford getting one but unfortunately my dealer hinted towards a R8 GT with similar tech and this is very tempting, especially since the dealer proposed to find an attractive solution if I want to switch cars. angry Oh boy...my wife will kill me.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Like RC, classic don't do it for me. The only one I would consider is the Singer... Even my manual 612 is going 12 years strong now. Although it is still a modern car, I don't drive it much and the culprit is the Macan turbo. After 3 years I still can't believe how good it drives and practical it is. Plus the black/red leather interior is just stunning. Unlike RC I really don't care about hp after a certain point. Actually getting the big engine in the RRS was overkill (but getting the autobiography trim level is really nice, so it is a wash). I have yet to floor the car... And this is where EV will obliterate everything else in a few years. Once the big German automakers figure out how to make a really good EV, it will be game over except for very high power applications like the top of the sport car market and German autobahn.

    Transport made good times and got in this morning. My foreman is gonna do a complete service of the car, replace the 4 tires, getting the car registered for my province. 

    Not that the car is in bad shape, it is in fact in excellent shape, all the rubber seals are still pliable, the rubber hoses are still soft, event the original zinc hose clamps are still on. Paint is pretty much perfect and has a complete clear bra on the whole car. All 4 wheels are perfect too and only slight discolouration on the front brake callipers. None of the interior switches are showing wear and tear nor peeling. A/C works, and so are all the lights. Engine is running fine also. The sunroof seal is also good. 

    The only negative is the front windshield has a slight de-lamination at the corner. Doesn't bug me. The exhaust has changed to a aftermarket one, but it's just cat back only. The suspension has also been changed to Bilstein/H&R combo. Oh and the radio has been switched to a Blaupunkt CD unit, which will be switched to a Porsche Classic Radio as e speak. 

    My guy is gonna do a running log of all the things that's not OEM when he do the service and will advice me on what's needed to be changed back to OEM. Easy to do now that Porsche has Porsche Classic program.

     

    Another tidbit, I never know this, but in the 964 Turbo, the exhaust only comes out of the passenger side, the driver side pipe is from the turbo bypass, that pipe is not connected to the muffler.

    LOL. But if I want it faster I will just drive something else Smiley

    Not sure yet. I really wanted to keep the car as original as possible, so for North American cars amber is the correct color. The car has aftermarket suspension on and I am thinking about changing it back to OEM, but debating whether to use M030 stuff or not, as during that period M030 package is not available for North American market.

    aside springs  I believed it had heavier sway bar and adjustable ones. Also rear reflector tends to have crack ,if you find genuine one ,its good to have spare


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    OMG, there was no ergonomics in a 964.

    Seems like when they design the interior, they forgot there will be switches. They are EVERYWHERE! Porsche basically stashes them wherever they find space, or feel like. Who would have thought to look under the gauges to find the sunroof switch!!!

    I don't believe the 959 is street legal in the US. It requires extensive modifications. Not sure about Canada.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    959 should be legal now, once 25 years old it's no issue.  There is a Red 959 Sport (1 of 29 Sports) at Colorado Springs Porsche (might be for sale, not sure)

    Here's an older pic (also a GT1, 904 and some other nice ones):

    In Canada it's 15 years, 10 less than the USA for any car to be imported without modifications
