VERY FAST! Remarkably Streetable, Trackable or Shine & Show. Just an awesome all round 911! General information about this car's parts, specs & history... The 3.2 liter motor: She was built based around Euro 3.2 specs to be extremely durable and versatile though originally built for Yellowbird. A 7,100 rpm soft limiter is set for the motor but it was built to run up to 8,000 rpm all day long. The suspension: As it's set up, the ride is firmer than most any stock Porsche car but it is not punishing by any means and it will run rings around any stock Porsche and most modified cars ("the incredible lightness of being") at an track event!Engine and transmission is build to be reliable for road course events. This car shows extremely well, gets a lot of attention and will likely run reliably on the road and track for many years... it will run ok on premium gas though you probably wouldn't want to run it at even 9/10s on the street or at driving events without mixing in at least a third or half a tank of racing fuel (between 104 and 112 octane) as the octane boosts performance and the lead helps keep the valves cool. The custom Steve Wong chip is programmed for 100 octane fuel, but this could readily be changed and de-tuned a bit to run on common premium gas at the sacrifice of a little power. The chassis and body: Ferrari Yellow paint, sunroof removed and sealed, the roll bar is a 4 point bar behind the seats (nothing to climb over etc.). The interior is gutted behind the seats and the interior painted to match the exterior, the headliner was installed new when built. RS door panels, RS carpet kit, Rennline pedals and foot boards, very nice and comfortable Sparco adjustable seats, replacement dash when built, no radio or AC, an extra pair of gauges mounted below the center dash area for brake bias info, Lexan door glass and rear quarter windows, the door glass has pull straps to raise and lower the very expensive lexan panes and they fully seal. The interior is gorgeous. The car literally has less than 3,000 miles on it since it was completed! The previous owner has a car collection that would gag you, and this was just a toy he completed then quickly moved on to other toys as he apparently gets bored easily! Here's my honest opinion. Unless you are an extremely experienced old school Porsche driver, this is a car you will have to learn to drive. It will challenge you for years to come to become a better driver. You will not be able to exploit it's full potential on a track for many, many hours of high performance driver's education and she'll provide you with a proper platform for a nice steady learning curve. If you are a soul mate for this car, any "stock" Porsche of any era will leave you wanting for more and it's likely you'll eventually spend all sorts of money for something which still won't be anywhere near as satisfying to drive! If you truly love driving and being challenged, this car is for you. If you are a true match for this car she will make you grin from ear to ear every time you start her up (or look at her for that matter), she'll stir your soul and make you tingle every time you put it in gear and pull away, but when you return you will know you have been driving a true thoroughbred and you will find yourself admiring her for her spirit and willingness to run hard or lope along. After driving her, all other cars will feel soft, flabby and slow to respond to your inputs. Plus she's incredibly sexy and easy on the eyes! If that is an experience you will treasure, then you won't be disappointed! The only reason I’m selling the car is because I want to buy a 997 GT3 Cup race car and I need the money to sponsor on the race season. * Please note: The car is being sold "as is, where is" with no warranty in place or implied. If you have any questions, please email me for more info... * NO AC, NO STEREO but she plays a great soundtrack from the dual center outlet GT3 style MK exhaust! *
