    Yes the X50 has got the laggier k24s but a few more ponies higher up the rev range eg 450hp and intercoolers and ECU tweak.  Add ceramic / bigger brakes and a 2005 build date and a few S badges and you have  a turbo S

    Not 100% sure but I also think the seats may be slightly different as well

    I’m tipping they got a tax break for being a ‘museum’ but were discovered to be just another used car yard trying to fet a tax break. ATO asks for the money back, ‘museum’ cries poor

    Troubleshooter got a reaction from firstone in 993 Turbo prices pushing the envelope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   
    Hard to track here in Aust Steve, but since about mid 2016 my buy price rule of thumb for Aust del was around $500k for mid hundred ks. (if you wanted one for just a while) ….. $600k for 20 - 30 ks (plan on keeping but sell few years later if prices up) .....and $700+ for 10ks for a must have absolute keeper.... another rule of thumb seemed to be over the years, double what a standard TT price is. Market went up in the standard TT since about mid 2016 to mid 2017 by about 20% or 30% and some tried for 50% rises and almost all didn't sell. It's come back down to about late 2016 prices now imo…
    Of course a white TT owned by a well known Porsche personality is a 20% premium over normal hahahahahaha.

    I wouldn't bother with this, viewed it and most of the bolts are missing/rotted off. Felt really soft too.

    Photo of my 996 I picked up late last year. Such an amazing car for the money. I love the simplicity of it, whilst still being modern with incredible performance and handling.

    Be patient grasshopper. But don't! Life is too short! Sell some s#!? work more hours, spend less elsewhere, do whatever it takes. It's just money and as Prince said on money- it doesn't make you happy, but will allow you to buy the things that will!

    But it comes with a car attached, and would be expensive. 
    Sorry, that wasn't very helpful was it.

    Hugh this came up a few days ago, sounds very cheap. Not my line of expertise, I have no idea if it's anywhere near a correct one or what you're after...

    Hi Everyone...well, I'm certainly feeling the love from you guys!  Thank you for all your wonderful comments, photos and encouragement.  Nearly brought a tear to my eyes...nearly!
    The car is SOLD!  To a non PFA'er, however, we may see "Nelle" on a trip one day as the new owner is keen for some country drives.
    As requested by @GC9911 , here are a few shots of the replacement!  A 981 Boxster S, 3.4 litre, 6 speed Manual.
    Relax @targa george, there will be more SMTs!  Try to keep up!  😀

    For those looking for non-professional framing options, I got these poster frames from Officeworks online (not an in-store stock item). $20, plastic not glass, delivered in 1 day. Search for A2 poster frame.

    Gotta love Oz Post who can crush a good solid tube.    HB2 Poster slightly crushed, might have to have it professionally framed now to see if they can get the creases out 😞
