    Your 997 GT3 choices are literally Black & White people 😜
    So, after my long term storage situation was cut short, I picked my one and only Mr Lapis up today... drove it straight to the office, thought about what we should be doing next!! 🤔 Hell of a car, and I’m out of garage space... but it stays! Boxster sleeps outside for now 😂 new tyres might be a good place to begin....

    Tips reacted to WB997.2GTS in How to pay imported goods GST??   
    I have just rebuilt my Boxster engine and sauced the majority of parts through design911, as soon as you enter your delivery address their billing system recalculates the tax from VAT to GST. I bought the IMS kit & the additional rear bearing kit through a supplier in Canada, they marked the package as $600CA (the $1500CA invoice was in the box)  and it came Aust post in 3 days ( unbelievable) with no tax.

    This rare Porsche RV is horribly slow—and painfully awesome
    by Brandan Gillogly // 
     June 20, 2019  
    Do you crave the sound of an air-cooled boxer engine? Do you yearn to share the Porsche motoring experience with your whole family? Do you enjoy being glared at by snowbirds as they pass on a slight grade, shaking their octogenarian fists from their Slant-Six-powered Clark Cortez? If so, I’ve found the RV for you.
    As luck would have it, Mecum is offering a one-of-three Porsche Tempo Mikafa Sport Camper at the Monterey Car Week auction. It’s reportedly the only one in the U.S. and it’s in unrestored condition. The aluminum-bodied coach has one refrigerator, two stove burners, three doors, and four speeds—all of them slow.
    Originally built in 1955 and equipped with a Porsche 356’s air-cooled flat-four as part of the “Sport” model, the listing notes that it’s now powered by a “boxer 4-cylinder engine,” which is a nice way of saying the Porsche engine is gone and it’s now motivated by a VW-spec four-cylinder. With all that mass, there’s no doubt that this beauty makes a VW Bus seem speedy. I can already imagine this Art Deco masterpiece ambling down the road en route to a KOA where it would be the talk of the campground.
    If you thought that the only way you’d be able to afford a vintage Porsche is if you lived in it, here’s your opportunity.

    Tips reacted to Dave986 in Advise for moving from GT86 to 986 Boxster?   
    It was my pleasure mate.
    The engine in the 986 and early 987 are the same. I could be wrong, but I am sure someone here will be along to tell me if I am .
    We can chat more when I get back next month

    Nothing - I’ll take it off your hands for $35k.  The rest of the market wouldn’t be so generous

    The lovely Golden 308 is gone and another Italian has taken it’s place.  Insanity in car form.
