    Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    Went to look at the car today, it was overall in a very good condition. 36,000km Still original paint! Going to need a little few touch ups here and there, but I will get this car looking as good as it did when it left the factory!

    I'm very excited, it's 1/4 in the country and the only one in this colour! I hope to take delivery within the next few days. Smiley


    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

     Wow, that's an all-time classic. Just a timeless beauty! Congrats!!!

    On a side note: I don't even buy shoes as often as you buy cars!  

    Enjoy it in good health!

    Tim


    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

     What colour and what specs Mike? 

    Many congrats on your new purchase! 

    The 993 is one of my all time favorite's from Porsche. I especially like the Turbo S, the 4S and the RS.

    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    What did you buy first, the car or the exhaust? Congrat's man.


    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    I'm working on the exhaust now

    @Gauss: It's guards red with 20,000 miles.


    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    @Tim: Thank you! Smiley


    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    Congrats Mike! A magnificent car.

    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    Congratulations, Mike. Smiley You can't even imagine how I envy you, you own my dream car (Lamborghini Murcielago) and you can afford to collect these beauties. Other men are envious of women, money, houses, boats or muscles, I envy you for having the possibility to make your car dreams come true. Kudos to you, Mike and may you (and we of course Smiley) enjoy your car "extravaganzas" for the next couple of decades. It is always a pleasure to read your threads/posts and view the beautiful cars on your pictures. Thanks again for sharing with us!!! SmileySmiley

    I always wonder how you manage to drive your cars. .Everyone is a completely different horse. as far as the transmission, starting up the car, steering feedback. and seating positions.

    Happy Driving

    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    OMG Mike, i second RCs comments. I'm young and that something like you can do is possible in life is a true inspiration. Hard work does make dreams come true!! You are definitely living it. 993 Turbo S is on my dream car list for sure. What a great find, i think you will love the car. I hope you're not too busy because i think a lot of guys here except a ton of beautiful pictures!!!

    enjoy in great health Mike!!

    Thanks again RC. I hope you too will be able to forfill your automotive dreams in the near future! Funny, enough I didn't know you were a Lambo fan - nice to know you also have some bull blood coursing through your viens Smiley Sharing them on Rennteam is the same as sharing with my second family!

    Congrats (x 1,000,000 for the future units)..

    Hahaha, I couldn't pass this opportunity up throt - the only reason this owner was half thinking about selling this car is due to the economic situation. This is the cleanest Tubo S in the country, never been in any form of accident what so ever. Has some stone chips of the front, but I will get that resolved.

    Congrats Mike! A magnificent car.

    Thanks Aviator!

    Hi intouch, that's a pity - I know the rarity of these cars. So as I said above, when the opportunity presented it's self, I couldn't pass it up. I see they are selling the States as high as $180,000 for a good example already!

    Carlos from Spain:

    Congrats MIke, thats a keeper

    Thanks Carlos, definitely - this is going to be in my family for a very long time!

    Haha I'll try to drive both, but there is some bad news on the CSL's side - it will more than likely be taken back. The car had some panelbeating done to it with out the information being disclosed to me. So we will see over the next couple of days what will happen on that side.

    Hi Atz, thanks - I'm sure you will get there one day as well! I'll post a lot of pics once she gets back from the spray shop and detailers. I want her to look brand new!

    Hi slawekl, that's why I jumped - before the owner could change his mind Smiley You get used to it, I must say maintenance is becoming quite tiresome - I think I will need to get somebody part time to come in every few days to clean up and keep them up to standard.

    SciFrog:

     Guards red, best color for a 911, congrats!

    Definitely! I think it will blend well with the rest of it's bunk mates!

    Found these pics of a black Turbo S, but wow what a beautiful design!


    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

     Wow I love that 993! It's the car that got me hooked on Porsche for good.

    Not to keep beating the same theme, but thanks for sharing your automobile enthusiasm on this board. I dig the cars you find, so please do keep sharing your experiences on this board! Smiley

    That car is an classic and will never become old!

    Great choice!


    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    Mike,

     

    good to see that you are expanding your young timer section  classic cars are a bit underrepresented in your collection  great car and fits your profile well.

    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    Congrats mike.

    Excellant choice, one to pass on to the future generation.


    Re: Bought a 993 Turbo S!

    Same thing happened to the singer JK I believe.  He bought an old 911 and then got HOOKED!! 

    ...so I expect a 997 GT3 in Mike's stable very shortly!

    Congrats Mike, you should chat with Toby (TB993tt) about his suped up 993 monster!
