I purchased the car from a collection in the UK, It was one of 8 in the collection. it’s a factory RHD it’s got a full steel wide Turbo Body. It looks tough, It really has a great presence , It sounds great as it pumps out beautiful 911 tunes through it's Ssi exhaust. corrosion isn’t an issue with this car. No oil leaks either...Hasn't dropped any. “ Auto Coupe “ just replaces shift bush and had a play and it’s shifting nice now. It fires straight up and really jumps to life, Its very straight, Paint is Very good, Targa roof has 2 small blemishes (front and trailing edge 5c piece size) a trimmer can sort. Interior is good. Stops and handles well, Has been a fun car, if you want a good car at reasonable money jump in the car and shoot to Dandenong South tomorrow and check it out. Will not disappoint! Must sell don’t miss out
  7. Quite a nice little channel these guys have. Mostly Japanese tuning, but there's two Porsche videos. The second one....well...check out that 4.0tt...
  8. Looking for an early 930 turbo wastegate or parts to repair, need the whole unit or the casing part number 930 127 00 any help or leads will be greatly appreciated
  9. Hi everyone, I'm considering investing in a 911 Turbo - most likely 997.1 generation but I have one concern. Whilst I enjoy driving manual recreationally I find them tedious in traffic day to day (car would be driven day to day plus for fun on weekends!).. Just wondering what tbe forum readers think the mpact on future resale values will look like for Tiptronic vs PDK vs Manual. My gut feel is the Manual and PDK will do much better long term. Thoughts? Cheers Dave
  10. I've got some items that I no longer need and want to clear room for... 1. 997 GT3 Cup muffler & Side muffler delete pipes. I bought this setup for my car for just over $4000 from PCM (Have receipts). This setup bolts directly on to the headers and removes the two side mufflers behind the rear wheels, before joining a centre muffler. The centre muffler looks much like the OEM one but is basically a straight pipe. This sheds a lot of weight and is said to be good for around 10whp up top. I had this on the car for one weekend, at Phillip Island the extra power was noticeable in the higher RPMs, but please note that this is bloody loud, as there's no more valve control. If you use your car a lot on the track then this will be good for you, if it's on the road then it might not be a good solution as there is quite a lot of drone between 2.5-3k RPM. Asking price is $3000 or best offer. 2. I have a set of Pirelli Pzero Corsa (N-spec) tyres in 235/35/19 & 305/30/19. These were fitted brand new on my car when I bought it from PCB in March last year. I did one track day on them and about 1000 road kms. They have about 85-90% tread remaining and no unusual wear. The sidewalls and shoulders are in great condition, the only reason I took these off was to try out the Pzero Trofeo R. Looking to get $1000 or best offer Please call/sms 0428 891 986 - Jonathan
  11. Hello all, First post from a newbie, I have in my possession a 1978 930. Great car and owned it for 15 years Until.................... anyway who do you have rebuild your turbos.
  12. A mate of mine has embarked on an 8 week O/S holiday. Before he went, I reminded him that it would be bad to leave his Cayman S sitting un-driven for that amount of time. According to Internet knowledge, this could exacerbate IMS or other damage... So - I had no choice but to offer accommodation and exercise for his Cayman, at no charge, for the duration of his holiday. So -here it is, being baby-sat in the top garage whilst the 952 has been relegated to the hoist in the bottom garage. I don't think the 952 is very happy about this turn of events, as every drive of the Cayman is one the 952 doesn't get. Interesting to compare the two drives, back to back. I've done only one so far, so too soon to elaborate - but I must say - the Cayman is verrrry nice, in a modern, 21st century kind of way.

    944 Turbo or S2

    I'm currently starting a hunt for a 944 Turbo or S2 coupe after a few years out of the market. I'm most keen on a red S2 but will consider other colours. I'm located in Brisbane but willing to travel Australia wide for the right car. My budget is ballpark $30k for the best possible car I can find. Should you be aware of a suitable car I would love to hear from you.
  14. found this article and images online and thought I would share it interesting read and some great images ......... 1973 Porsche 911 Turbo Prototype In the seventies Porsche was serious about turbo charging and this prototype signalled the way for later cars like the 930 and the RSR 3.0. It was also the one of the very first show cars fitted with the wide body, large alloy wheels, whale tail and a turbocharged version of the flat-6 engine. All these details eventually appeared on the 911 RSR 3.0-litre race cars of 1974. At the time, Porsche was no stranger to forced induction. Their 917/10 and 917/30 race cars achieved incredible amounts of horsepower, reaching 1100 bhp and beyond, with exhaust-driven turbochargers. By January of 1973 they had experimented with a turbocharged version of the 2.7-litre engine to signal their upcoming intentions, Chief Engineer Helmuth Bott created the new Turbo at Style Porsche. The show car was built from a standard 911S (VIN 9113300157) fixed with a radical wide body kit that mimicked the upcoming RSR 3.0-litre race car. This was purely functional since the flares wrapped around much larger 11 inch Fuchs alloy wheels and other details like the front apron included an opening for the oil cooler. At the rear was Porsche’s first whale tail that improved cooling and aerodynamics. It also was fitted with a very rare badge on the engine cover from Style Porsche. To promote the upcoming turbo era, large graphics spelled out the cars intended purpose. The interior also had a unique Green/Black tartan trim and one-off paddle head-rest sports seats. Ironically, when the car debuted as the new Turbo at the 1973 Paris Motor Show, it didn’t even have a functioning turbocharged engine. Instead, the top half of the engine was a wooden mock-up, used to show case the turbo engine. The car was subsequently displayed at the 1974 Geneva, Frankfurt, Tokyo and Melbourne motor shows. During the world tour Porsche took orders for the full-blown RSR 3.0 race car, but they didn’t scrap their prototype. Instead, it was later fitted with a real RSR 3.0-litre engine and sold to Alan Hamilton, the Australian Porsche importer in 1975. He raced the car at Oran Park and Hume Weir in 75 before retiring it from competition .Alan had kept it in largely original condition. During that period but wanted to upgrade to the the fearsome 934 ,so like most of last year’s race cars the RSR went onto Hamilton’s used car lot to be sold . Subsequently the car changed hands several times while residing in Australia and was at one stage converted to right hand drive and reconfigured as a road car and club racer for the Victorian Porsche club president Graham Stockley.. By 2010, the prototype changed hands again and this time had reached the United States for owner Murray Smith of Washington, Connecticut. It was subsequently displayed at the 2010 Greenwich Concourse d’Elegance. As show in some of these images
  15. New to the forum, didnt realise what i've been missing! Due to space constraints and a desire to get back on the track my pristine 2003 996 Turbo Tiptronic is up for sale. The car is immaculate, having only 31,200klms on the clock. I'm the second owner and have only put 1000klms on it since purchased last year. Australian delivered with full history and just had a PCM service completed last month. Forum members know what these cars offer, and where the prices of its predecessor -the 993 Turbo's have gone. The plan was to moth ball this car, given its condition and low klms, but the lack of space and desire to get back on the track means it is now time for it to be enjoyed by someone else. Silver metalic, black soft leather option, sunroof, colour coded centre console, upgraded stereo with nav, reverse camera and Bluetooth (original headunit will be supplied with sale to restore to original). Looking for $115,000 which is very competitive with current market. Happy to provide photo's and more details to interested parties. Car is located in Melbourne. Thanks
  16. Hi all Weve been locked (kind of) away in the home garage the past few months trying to get the car sorted, released it was August already and omigod how does time fly when working on our pride and joys? Anywhos moving on, Came across some new problems mostly with paint mixing from supplier, ie; the second batch was a shade darker than the first which is not good when you've done the rear of the car already..two tone blue just doesn't seem to work..:( Anyway ive solved the problem by sanding it all back again to repaint with the new arrow blue batch paint , officially there is no code for Arrow Blue in Acrylic so the shop had to mix it using information and guesswork carried over from the paint codes for 2 pack Arrow blue which is listed in the Porsche paint system, Anyway thought id post a pic of where its at, Am awaiting new transaxles and cv joints, Ive also replaced washers on all joints that get vibration with fibre washers, along the same lines as the factory uses in the luggage fender area with the leather washers, my thinking is that in the rear fender sills rust can start in areas of movement of the metal washers rubbing for many years through the paint and galvanising exposing small areas of bare metal which will promote rust, The Fibre washers can be torqued asnd also aid in stopping looseness through vibration as they are Textured, about $4 a packet of 40 from Bunnings. Also have been working on more cooling specifically Turbo, using the factory vents on the rear guards to route Air when at speed through a 60mm hose with a 24 inch vent covering each exhaust outlets side, thinking is that the cooler the air when it gets to turbo more denser it is so every bit of cool air will help with keeping charge temps down. Note pic, not rust but some old silicone filling, note the car is a Late 1977 930 with Porsche Factory brakes from what I think is used in 1978 car ****note another major problem was protecting the car as I was working on it, I stupidly bought some builders film (wide clear sticky plastic) it can be used for masking off and protecting large areas, well I covered the rear fenders , tail in it while working on sanding back the roof for repainting and I must have put it on before rthe paint had fully hardened because when I peeled it off it left Wrinkles in the paint.. you can see in second photo the damage so lots more sanding to do :(:( Also am now cleaning priming and sanding all brackets to be repainted in a uniform colour across the board, looking at the hammered tone finish as can be seen in the last photo, Note this is not a concours car it wouldn't qualify due to the mileage and tail etc, so having said that paint colours matter not in the whole scheme of the car. I agree with many people that it is more important to have a car with factory RHD and matching numbers, being the most important attraction, the rest of the car can be changed easily enough, I would be wary of buying a 40 yr car with original paint on the account of hidden rust especially if it had high mileage, Wishing all a happy week Leonie Also I did the Rod Brackets in Hammered Aluminum finish,
  17. Hi folks, I had been going down the path to back date my 74 but have now decided to change tack and keep it in its original general body shape to avoid having to butcher the car. As a result I have for sale a set of 2.8 RSR/ST style front guards which I'd like to move on so I can fund some short nose guards to replace them. These are, I believe, fairly rare. They are original steel long nose guards with fibreglass extensions. They look to have been originally glassed back in the early 70's (I'm guessing), based on both the condition of the glass, the repairs required, as well as the profile of the guard itself. As can be seen in the photos they appear to follow the original RSR profile (as typical as it could be) which has a flatter top side profile with almost an upward kick as well as having less flare where the end of the guards meet where the front chin spoiler would finish. This contrasts against the turbo style which is more rounded and flares out to accommodate a wider front spoiler. When I first got these the glass was delaminating around where they attached to the steel of the guards, indicating rust underneath. After having them sit in the shed the last few years I had these repaired just recently to make them good, which involved grinding back the delaminating glass (about a 3 inch strip), grinding out the rust that was found underneath and then applying rust converter, sealing them and then repairing the glass where it joined the steel of the guard. As much of the original fibreglass was left intact, including the main profile of the extensions. The guards were then reinforced on the back and sealed, and the outsides primed in a light grey 2-pack primer. Overall these guards should now be in good condition. There was some rust damage underneath them in areas such as the base of the fuel filler which has been made as good as possible, however these are not concourse and would require a bit more metal work to get them there. I've taken the path of trying to make them good whilst maintaining as much of their originality as possible. I don't have any specific history of these guards (they were literally a barn find) however it's quite likely they were used in competition in the 70's. If you have turbo rear guards these probably won't suit, as the profile of the guards between the RSR is different (turbo being more rounded). If you need original profile guards to suit ST/RSR style rear guards then these will be something fairly desirable I'd say. I'd recommend these to be fitted and checked for any tweaking required before painting. Chasing $2,750 for the pair, which is I think a fair price given their rarity and allowing for their condition. Would also look at a potential trade scenario for a set of turbo style guards in steel. Inspection welcome (and encouraged) in the south east of Melbourne (Beaumaris). For reference, here are a couple of pics of the difference in side profile between the 930 (which has the rounder, more consistent profile) and the more flat shape of the earlier RSR and ST profiles. I've found it hard to find any exact specs on the early profile, as it appears they were effectively beaten by hand originally by the factory and so the replications of these have similarly followed suit in being less than 100% consistent. However the difference from the later turbo guards is fairly evident. 930: RSR:
  18. I've had 944s and 951s (and a 968) since 2002 and have never had a problem getting a good "pedal" until now, with my 1990 951. I changed the fluid (DOT4) before my son did a track day at QR. The brakes worked brilliantly throughout the day, but my son reported a drop in pedal height toward the end of the day. We figured it would recover with a fluid change. After a full fluid change using a pressure bleeder, pedal height with the motor NOT running was good, with a ~10mm free play as per spec. However, on starting the motor and the vacuum booster coming into play, the pedal sinks probably another 20mm with moderate foot pressure. Redid the bleeding and the problem persists. BTW the car has braided steel lines throughout. I recall reading (somewhere on line) that there are some "tricks" to getting a good pedal, although I haven't needed any "tricks" previously. I'm tending to think there may be an issue with the master cylinder, but before I rush to the keyboard and buy one, I'd appreciate any insight others might have on the subject. Thanks in anticipation
  19. A real nice ride this. A 1975 Aussie delivered C3 that's been converted into a 964 Turbo S Leichtbau replica with a heap of RUF parts and engineering as well. Makes around 480hp and is one hell of a good thing to steer. Amazing fact: doesn't leak oil! When someone can tell me how to upload more pics I will (Keeps saying I am only allowed to upload 102k, even if uploading 80k)
  20. Im looking to buy a RHD 930 Turbo, not converted, any year & in reasonable condition If any one has one feel free to PM me Regards James
  21. Inspired by Ben C3.o's post I was just reading "show us your Carrera 3.0," + kind of missing my 930 at the moment so cheer me up, and show me your Turbo people. Couple of snaps of mine
  22. This comparison has really opened my eyes to 996 turbos.
  23. She got new shoes! I've had the Enkei Nt03-M wheels for a while. and i've been meaning to put them on for a long time, But things got in the way and needed to be pushed further back. But finally got around! Tyres: Achilles 123s (I've driven cars on these and other semi slick brand.. And for weekend use and SMTs ect.. these are brilliant. I bit the bullet and thought i'd try them out for my self.) F - 18 x 8.5 265/35r18 (i still have to toy with the spacer as it rubs a little on full lock hard cornering) R - 18 x 10 265/35r18 Yes it's a square setup!! mostly because 265 is the widest in their range. Sitting on KW v3s she's been lowered a fair bit. But now need to adjust the damper and rebound to suit the grip on these things.
