  1. Yes that car has been listed for some time now. I've no doubt it's a quality car but coming from Classic Throttle Shop it's about $10k overpriced in my opinion. If they were to drop the price then I might have a look at it.
  2. 9fan - When you say check Porsche Australia are you suggesting their pre-owned cars or just check how many were sold in the country? I agree what I'm after is reasonably rare. I've only seen 4-5 red Turbo S's for sale in the last 2 years or so. Greg - Thanks for this. I'm aware of the two red 87 Turbos on the SA Porsche club site. They are tempting but aren't S models & would need a bit of money to make presentable/reliable.
  3. Hi all After many years of wanting a 944 Turbo I've finally decided to start the hunt in earnest. My preference is for a well looked after 944 Turbo S (guards red strongly preferred). If you're selling such a car or know somebody who is please let me know. I have been watching the market for some time and given how long I've waited I'm prepared to wait for the right car. Justin
  4. Unique looking 968CS and a great read. Thanks for sharing Paul. Mark's Turbo looks unreal too. Seeing how it was as a shell to now is quite a transformation! Speaking of rare colours - A guy I bought some seats off resprayed his 944 S2 in the grey from a 997 GT3 RS. I don't have any pics but it was definately something different.

  5. Very impressive build. The styling is a little busy but when you have that kind of power I think you need a kit that screams as much as the exhaust would!
  6. My story involves a 944 Turbo S with Garrett GT3071 conversion, Haltech ECU, top end refresh, new clutch, exhaust etc for $19k. I turned it down at the time because the guards red paint was very poor and in need of a respray. If I had my time again...

    Oil?

    Only just stumbled across this thread. Some very insightful info from Bruce Buchanan, I had read a little about the ZDDP issue in one of the Rennlist threads but your post is far more concise. Thanks for sharing the important details
  8. Hi guys, I'm looking into purchasing a Guards Red 944 Turbo S at present, which requires a respray badly. I'm trying to get an indication on the rough cost to factor it into my offer price. I'd like to go a factory respray to all but the engine bay to keep the cost down. If you live in Brisbane and have had your car(s) resprayed recently, who can you recommend? Thanks
  9. I really like what they're doing with the body. Obviously it's not finished yet but squishing the roof down and widening the track is really making it more aggressive. I can actually see some similarities with a Ferrari 360 in the second shot believe it or not (squint a little!).
  10. Merry Xmas all. Have a relaxing enjoyable break. Douglas - Excellent video too. Thanks for sharing.
  11. Hi all, I know the 4.0 GT3 has been around for a little while now, and what a car! I just stumbled across a new Winding Road mag article of it for anyone interested. Needless to say they're quite fond of it too. Anyone on the waiting list? http://www.windingroad.com/articles/reviews/driven-2011-porsche-911-gt3-rs-40/?utm_campaign=Weekly+Email&utm_medium=email&utm_source=email-289&utm_content=WR76+5
  12. Congrats on your new acquisition Nicko. Hope you've enjoyed it the last few months. Can't beat a well looked after 944.
  13. Hi everyone Justin from Brisbane here. I'm 25 years young and looking to join the Porsche ranks in the not too distant future. I've owned a number of japanese sports cars over the years but from my 18th birthday I haven't been able to shake a desire to own a 944 Turbo. Sitting on the Rennlist and Pelican Parts Forum and seeing all the stunning 951's being built up hasn't helped my desire. My current Nissan Silvia is probably screaming at the thought of being replaced right now. I've attended a number of Porsche Club QLD cruise days and concourse events. Great to finally stumble across an Australian Porsche Forum. I look forward to chatting all things "Porscha" with you all!
  14. Some excellent pics. Cheers for sharing!
