    968CS Refresh

    Enjoying this! Please keep the updates coming.
  2. I was thinking that it would be fun as well …. then I saw the auto!! This car is a niche in a niche. Very tidy though!

    968CS Refresh

    Once it's on the road I'm hopeful at seeing you at our next front engine appreciation society. Great to see an enthusiasts bringing this car back.
  4. What a relief ... we can now see the position of the rear spoiler in the car info-graphic. Time to put a deposit on a 992!
  5. Nice looking 928! Reading the add and looking at your pictures, also suggest this is the type of car a potential 928 buyer should be looking at.
  6. Brian, Suspect you'll find it will be something simple. Check you've reattached all earth straps, leads and plugs. Your big challenge while trying to fix this is to not introduce another fault by changing things from working to not working.
  7. Hi Owen, Your challenge is going to be finding somewhere with spare capacity considering it's a short week. I've used: Porsche Centre Brisbane - Not a particularly imaginative suggestion however they did a good report and were around the same price as the independents. DHM Automotive - http://www.dhmautosolutions.com.au/our-services Will give you a straight forward assessment of the car. Also consider TD Automotive - https://tdautomotive.com.au/service/ One of the longest established Porsche mechanics in Brisbane however had a change of ownership a few years back. When you get your PPI it is likely it will have a long list of items. Your initial reaction may be to go 'run', however often when you really look over the list, you'll find some of the items are small in nature. Personally, it's the major $$ items that I'd be looking out for.
  8. I started that post! Might be worth a little more than in 2010, however probably not that much more.
  9. I always find under load problems the most difficult to resolve as it's hard to look around the engine bay while driving. I've never worked on a 928 (or driven one for that matter) however the first thing I would look for is a vacuum leak. I'm going to pressure you 928 is an older version with CIS as more modern version have electronic fuel (unsure from when .. my guess is S4). If it has a vacuum leak, as you increase load on the engine the fuel ratio leans out and then the engine starts to miss. It may be a hose that was dislodge while doing the plugs??
  10. I've been on a few drives with this car, it's certainly the type of 944 I'd direct a potential purchaser to as all the heavy lifting has been done. I also like the colour! Good luck with the sale Jason, there are always mixed emotions selling Pcars so I hope it all turns out the best for you.
  11. There were a few changes. I believe there was a change in the engine electronics .. and I think clutch. Not a big change as per S1 vs S2, however a couple of bits and bobs.
  12. My SC was brown with brown interior and I always really liked it. Only challenge is if you need to replace a trim item, more difficult to get a brown piece. Like the condition and look of this turbo. It will be interesting to see if it does sell, if it is indeed '82, then it's more rare then the regular turbos... which may make some parts difficult to source.
  13. Classic! I won't ask how it drives, however it's worth owning just to look at.
  14. The interior and exterior look good. Typically the steering wheels are the three spoke ones, MY82 may have changed, it would be worth checking the vin. Worth checking the VIN full stop of course, that will tell you whether it's an original. Engine looks a little tired … suspect all the hoses will need to be replaced, along with a few other things. Least, from what I could see, everything looks original … and the engine is from a later model turbo.
  15. I have found that its important to reinvent the Porsche adventure from time to time. Today it might be about cars and coffee, tomorrow it might be about sorting out the paint job, next year might be about doing some track work. If the thrill is gone, sometimes its about reinventing .. and sometimes it's about doing something different.
