  1. Does anyone know anything about this silver S2 for sale? http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/greenacre/cars-vans-utes/1991-porsche-944-coupe/1130061518 I've been trying to contact the seller without success from the first half hour of it being listed. Any Sydney members want to go take a look at it for me (assuming you can make contact with the seller)?
  2. Was a very exciting shootout this year. Excellent battle between the MCA Hammerhead and RP968. The MCA was glued to the pavement on the fast turn 1! How exciting is it seeing two rear wheel drive 4 cylinders fighting for the win after all the Evo 4WD domination!
  3. Thanks Timm, I managed to track down the live feed on the WTAC website. Scary stuff for Rod's car and the bonnet but it hasn't stopped him from securing the top spot so far. MCA Hammerhead also doing very well. Should be an exciting day tomorrow! :D
  4. I'm pumped to see the battle this year, particularly to see how the RP968 Porsche goes. Does anyone know if a live stream will be available? I spoke to MCA Suspension a couple of weeks back and they suggested there was meant to be one.
  5. Another option you have for your S2 is the VEMS replacement ECU. I've read it's a direct plug in to the factory harness, fires straight up on a self learning/autotune map and has all the modern features to replace the outdated Motronic unit. Worth a look.
  6. I was also surprised to see the price rise on this car. The reality is a LHD is nowhere near as desirable as a RHD in the Australian market. I remember seeing LHD turbos going for $12k a few years back. Good luck to the seller but I think he'll be waiting a while.
  7. Not a bad conversion. The profile looks a little squished compared to the standard 991 body in those photos though. Doubt you'd get your money back at sale time but it's a cheap way to get into a 991 bodied car.
  8. I don't want to derail Steve's thread but...I could be mistaken but that looks scarily similar to a car I test drove at a Sunny Coast dealer a few years back. It overheated on me on the test drive eek. Hopefully the mechanicals have been sorted since then. Thanks for sharing your import costs too Steve. Good info to have for those contemplating the option.
  9. Thanks for clearing this up. I've often wondered myself.

    WEC 2016

    Just bumping this thread for the race today. Great to see Webber and Porsche up on the top step! The Audi's definately had Porsche's measure today but Porsche hung in there and capitalised on some Audi mistakes. Great race.
  11. Post up some farewell photos kpac. I love the champagne colour.
  12. T&D Automotive will probably be the top choice. I've used them for a PPI in the past and they were very upfront about the car. Don Munro at DHM Auto Solutions is another option I hear people mention reguarly. Bayside Performance Services is another shop with Porsche experience. Good luck with your search!
  13. Totally agree with you Timm. This is the kind of car I've been aspiring to for a good many years but no way would I purchase for that kind of money. To put it into perspective, one of the 968 RS Turbo replicas was going for approx $60k a little while back... I mean no disrespect to the seller Nik (especially if he's a PFA member) but I would have thought $50-60k is more in the ball park. You never recover the value of your modifications added. At the end of the day the market will decide the price I guess.
  14. Very sorry to see the bad news Robert. Good to hear you're unhurt and hopefully you'll be back in action with a replacement shortly.
  15. I'm hanging for this one. Logitech steering wheel and projector at the ready!
  16. I had that exact 'Momo Race 3000' wheel on my old Nissan 300ZX many years ago and thought it was great. I agree it probably doesn't suit your new 944 Turbo though. Perhaps a 968CS wheel instead of the reupholstered standard wheel... http://www.classicshop.porsche.com/pcos-usa/944/production-period-1985-1991/front-axle-steering/sports-steering-wheel-without-airbag-in-black-for-porsche-964-968-cs-and-944-968347084008yr.html

    944 Hunt

    That's a bit of a shame. I thought all late 88 - 91 Turbos came with M030 as standard (and it was optional on all S2's)? At least it has option 220 (LSD).

    944 Hunt

    The black one with fresh paint? I'd be curious to hear how it presents in person. It could be a good car with an engine freshen up.

    944 Hunt

    That one looks to have sold quick. I would love to have seen the receipts for the $60k of work. Surely that would have covered engine, gearbox, LSD, suspension and some cosmetics/electricals at a minimum. Anyone on the forum purchase?
  20. Wow looks like it was a great turnout. Will have to make it out there one time soon. Thanks for posting the photos Woka. Excellent Porsche attendance.
  21. Wowser what a last 5 minutes to the race. Heartbreaking for Toyota. I think they deserved the win. Hats off to Porsche for pushing Toyota to crack at the end and capitalising on the misfortune though. 18 wins!
  22. If your first option doesn't work out then I can recommend 'Dent Removal Brisbane'. Jon Speller did some work for me previously and he was excellent. Very friendly, quality work and well priced. http://www.dentremovalbrisbane.com.au/

    New 928?

    I see some C7 Corvette in the render. Bring it on the front engine!
  24. While I agree about the sound issue, Porsche need to stay relevant. I think it's fantastic they're pushing other brands like Tesla in the electric car race. I look forward to seeing one or two Mission-E's on aussie roads down the track. It looks cracking to me (if a little long)!
  25. I share your view. While the engineering behind the crazy power and speed of current gen cars is extremely impressive, there comes a point when that cannot be used on the road. I think that's one reason why mild but fun cars like the Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ and Mazda MX-5 have become so popular. They are useable on the road. The Cayman GT4 is another example. While it is still a very fast car it is comparatively accessible and you can enjoy the limits without hitting silly speeds. You're not getting old...
