    WGA got a reaction from edgy in Whats for sale (in Australia ) and interesting Thread   
    Lately, I have had a growing want for a 911 hotrod. I found, and inspected, this 3.0 ST Recreation, in the UK. The quality and level of the work is outstanding. But after looking at the import rules, it seems it is very difficult to get any car into Aus that has been modified. Is that the case? Has anybody had an experience bring in a modified car?

    While you guys are waiting for your RS in OZ, I have taken delivery of my European based LG WP RS. In the last two weeks of ownership I have done a round trip to Goodwood FoS and a track day at Spa. 2,000kms already on the car.

    My Aussie based GT3 RS has arrived. Managed to get the paperwork done before July 1st so dodged an additional $17,000 Stamp duty bullet. Fly home for few days in a couple of weeks time to pick it up.

    Then you might like to watch this video. Needless to say, he has impeccable taste. My red 964 RS is nose to nose with his black 964 RS 3.8 in the video.

    WGA got a reaction from edgy in 718 GT4 (and Spyder) revealed - the 6 pot is still in tact   
    I knew the GT4 was coming with a 4.0l producing 420hp over 1 year ago but the assumption was that it would be a de-tuned GT3 engine. However there was always one thing that nagged me...and that was how the hell are they going the detune the GT3 4.0 to only 420hp and still make it work. So the announcement that it was a new engine based on the 992/991.2 3.0l turbo came as a big surprise and now explains the how.
    Further down the line, this engine is going to spawn a bunch of higher and lower HP versions including the 718 GTS 4.0l at 375hp which will sit above the GTS 2.5 Turbo. They were going to call this version the 718-6 but I hear there has been a late name change so I now expect it to appear as the 718 GTS 4.0l. Personally, I think call it the 718-6 would have been better.
    Then in late 2020 there will be a 25th Anniversary Boxster producing 450hp. It will be a limited edition car in the same colour scheme as the original Boxster prototype - Silver/Red Leather/Copper coloured wheels.
    Finally in 2021 there will be a GT4 RS with 475hp.

    The price of a PCar ex-factory is pretty much the same regardless of what country it is built for.  The local price differences are usually because of the huge variation in taxes from country to country..
    As a result, comparing USA to AUS prices is not an apples to apples exercise for a number of reasons.
    Firstly, all US prices are quoted ex-Sales Tax and Registration fees because they vary drastically state to state. Whereas in AUS, the prices quoted all include VAT (GST) because it is a single tax across all states. Once you add in the USA taxes, the price gap closes a bit...BUT....and its a big one....
    Australia has the crazy LCT which adds a huge amount to the price and makes it just about the most expensive country in the world to buy a "luxury" car....although its not the most expensive country to buy a Porsche by far. Singapore, Norway and the Netherlands are actually more expensive than Australia.
    Even in Europe, the price can vary enormously from country to country. e.g. the new GT4 in Germany is 96,000 euro (inc VAT), in Belgium next door its 99,000 euro and the the Netherlands its 151,000 euro which is more expensive than Australia when converted to AUD. Whereas Belgium and Germany are cheaper than Australia when converted.
    as an example, my Belgium based 991.2 GT3 RS cost me in AUD $398,000 (inc 21% VAT and 1st Registration tax). Next week, I take delivery of my Australian based 991.2 GT3 RS and its costing me a smidge under AUD $500,000 for essentially the same car. The $100,000 price difference is solely due to the LCT.
