Steve - short of a lottery win, this is as close as I will get to a GT2. Seemed too good an opportunity to pass up as GT2 has been the lottery win car for a long time.

Looks like I've picked a good time to pop back around these parts! Monster purchase mate. That will be a complete weapon when you get your head around it :signs85:

If it's good enough for Harry, it's good enough for RB.

 

 

 

Does look & sound mega.

RB,

 

I had a good few laps round SPA a few years ago in Uncle Vic's orange GT2, that did it for me, want, want, want,

Extremely jealous Richard, sounds like it will be a hoot to drive/boarderline lunacy!

 

A very fortunate position to be in, oh to have that sort of power to play with :)

It's going to be relentless, would love to do a side by side comparison with my 996, consumer tuned 930 vs Porsche's own effort!

Yes and no. It was a lovely old thing but ultimately the GT2 is what I wanted that car to be. I'm sure I will kick myself down the line from a monetary point of view, but from a drivers perspective the 930 just can't touch it IMHO

Nah, IBs are pretty toppy & GT2/GT3 is always going to have a market. They don't make your car anymore either & wasn't built in huge numbers.

 

Only problem with yours is finding the right place to unleash it!

 

RB - Changing subject, did you ever fit those wide wheels to your other red car? If so where are the photos man?

Tank - what's happened with your 930? Gone to pastures new? Happy with the 996?

Thanks David.

 

Hello Rich, how's it going?

 

930 is still in my ownership and up for sale. It's taken so long to get the car to the point I wanted it to be at, that I no longer want that type of car. It's sad, because it is a truly fantastic thing to drive, brutal and yet when treated with respect can be sublime to drive. However there is a potential replacement, watch the splitters for further news . . . .

 

996 has been moved on. Have a Z4M now for shirts and giggles, but that is going too, see above.

Got one of those as well since April - relative bargain for the performance and fun.

When do you get your hands on it RB?

Not sure why, but I only started looking at this thread yesterday. I am an imbecile! What a car, RB. Now, all you need to do is turn it up to 11 to do it justice.

 

Good luck with the journey.

 

Kevin

I am aiming for 90% of the GT2 experience for 10% of the price :) Definitely will be fun.

 

Fingers crossed, I have it in the next few weeks as the unrelated issues that the car is caught up in look like they have a good chance of resolution.

Learned 2 new details today.

 

1. It has antilock brakes from 944T (not currently working but likely a sensor gap thing)

2. It has a flavour of bilstein coilover suspension (so likely something like PSS9s)

 

About to order Michie Superports in 225/275 as we think it has 8/10 rims. Suspect its on 235/285 now. Old tyres are like hard plastic. Should collect back end of next week.

 

Edit - To clarify, brakes are 993Turbo flavour big reds over 330x32mm front discs. Just the ABS system is 944T as it was available off the shelf from Porsche at some point in time.
