Car History
Here is the information I have been able to glean about the car.
This highly optioned car was purchased in the Chicago area by car collector John Pizer. He immediately had it flat-bedded to the Andial facility with only delivery miles on the car.
The full Andial 3.8 liter twin plug conversion was performed at an estimated cost of 55-60 thousand dollars.Andial Twin Plug
A few years later the car was purchased by collector Amir Fahti in Calabasas with around 4000 miles on the clock.
In 2007 I purchased the car from Mr. Fahti with 27,181 miles on the clock. Unfortunately Mr. Fahti had lost the build sheet on the car. Andial confirms that this is one of the 19 certified 3.8 liter twin plug conversions, of which only 17 remain. Andial Registry

Over the next few years I had Michael Schatz MKS Performancein Camarillo fettle the car into tip top condition, replacing the front differential, viscous coupler, clutch accumulator, steering rack and installing a set of GT2 uprights and tie rods, new hood shocks, breeze constant torque clamps on the intercooler hoses and forge diverter valves. I removed the k40 radar detector and installed functional front brake cooling ducts and a larger Cargraphics oil cooler. I installed yellow rear seat belts to match the front seat belts. Finally, a complete corner balance and alignment and rake was performed.

In 2011 elected to make this car into my vision of the ultimate street version of a GT2.
I contacted 1998 IMSA GT2 champion Jochen Rohr who generously supplied me with the rear wing and carbon fibre deck-lid plus the BBS wheels he had left over from that race team. I sourced a brand new OEM European narrow-body front bumper and some hand laid fender flares and commissioned Ed Palmer at Kundensport to perform the conversion.

The car is everything I could have hoped for. It looks fabulous in my eyes. It rides very smoothly. The GT2 uprights and tie rods have minimized bump steer and the ride is not harsh in any way but it still handles brilliantly. The paint is exceptional. It is the best rding 993 I have ever driven. I clay barred it using Final Detail as the lubricant over a weekend and it presents very well indeed. It is nearly impossible to put the car cover on by yourself because it keeps shooting off as the paint is so smooth. Obviously the car is brutally fast but also very tractable. The larger pistons on the RS rear calipers match the 14 inch front brakes very well. A minor service and detailing was performed last week.

With the passing of Arnold in 2011 and the purchase of Andial by Porsche Motorsports in 2012, I believe no more of these cars will be built and a stellar chapter in Porsche history has closed.

Nits to pick:

There are a few rock chips on the front.

The front tires can rub if the wheel is turned to full lock at parking lot speeds.

The Thielert dual program street/race gas ecu is a bit unsophisticated and no longer supported. They need two revolutions of the crank to start the car and can run a little rough just off of idle. It occaisionally becomes “confused” and can cough and spit for a bit. Then it remembers it’s manners and clears up. It is not foolproof. You need to make sure you have 100 octane race gas in the tank before switching to the race gas setting or damage could occur.

There is a more modern Andial aproved ecu available, but you lose the dual programming capabilities. Having the "psychopath switch" under your left hand is just too much damn fun! As a result I elected to keep the dual program ecu and live with the very minor flaws.

Thank you.
Sadly there is not going to be a next. Where could I possibly go from here?
My life situation has changed to where I hardly ever get to drive this fabulous machine.
Although Karen has mostly recovered from her battle with ostoporosis, she then had a pinched nerve and had to have her c6 titanium-plated in her neck. As a result she can no longer risk the type of G forces this car is capable of generating.
I can't bear, nor afford to just have it sit.

Scott brought this car up to Santa Cruz once, and let me have a whack at it. He describes it perfectly... docile and smooth, capable of brutal speeds. This car is THE ULTIMATE street 993, and, sadly, eclipses even my Ruf Turbo R. It is PERFECT. Gads. Don't sell it Scott!

You may as well be selling the Holy Grail itself. There are no words that could do justice to that masterpiece. Unbelievable car.

Protomotive, Todd Knighton could redo the maps while retaining stock ecu and making life easy.You add race gas and turn up boost and she knows the difference
Beautiful machine and I wish I had the finances.

NO SOUP FOR YOU!
That's like puttting fuel injection on a Ferrari 275 GTB/4 nart spyder because Webers are a touch finicky.

Picture link works for me, but its a very slow load. My guess is they are very high res photos.
