Yep, this my car, and just to square the record up, firstly I have a 77 that I am restoring and needed my fix for another P-car (which the bug has only bitten in the last 3 years) to play with. I lusted over a 997 but when the 996 got offered it was too good to refuse. I have had it for 8 months now, the Greek mechanic who owned it bought it of the “old lady” and did the required IMS and co.
He drove it rarely in his 4 years of ownership and needed to fund his Yankee Muscle car passion and finish his projects off.
Besides his mechanical input the car was in need of lots of dipshit stuff done that had been neglected in its 20 years .
I have put lots of time, money and effort into this little girl to get it back to how it should be, so for those that think that I am profiteering just aren’t quite getting it.
For anyone to think they buy a cheap Porsche and not spend any money on it is not quite catching on, this car was sold for a fair price that the previous owner knew that all that had to be done, so was it cheap in the long run???
For those that know of me will profess to my collection of old Italian bikes and the quality of restoration and maintenance/ anal-ism of preserving quality vehicles.
My first forte into water-cooled Porkers has been a great experience but now just want something “bigger, better, faster”
