I got one in mine..its awesome. I didn't pull the forward shift rod out, which you can do and he has hardware to replace but I can tell you the shifter etc. is fantastic. A great investment for sure.

First impressions are the build quality is quite nice and beefy. All components are really high quality down to the bolts/nuts sourced.
So, after a full day of driving, Wow! Iíve had the stock shifter, the Lizard shifter (no disrespect, was a great shifter for its time) and now the Hans shifter. The Hans shifter transforms the car completely. I thought the short coming of the 928 was the trans all along and now I believe it was really the original shifting mechanism. This short shifter takes shifting the car back to a pleasure from being a chore before. Makes the shifting much smoother -feels great. Nice job Hans SerVaas and great installation Sean Ratts!

Wow, and just wow. I see that this is an improved version with extra bracing in front to further prevent longitudinal sliding if any.
Thanks for sharing.

It still is a mystery to me who makes this shifter (Hans Servaas sounds dutch). After some google time I found that he works at projectnine. I found a Porsche specialist by that name in th UK but also an engineering company in the USA (Indianapolis) who are not directly linked to any Porsche activities so it seems.
So I hope the company in the UK is the manufacturer because this would save me a lot on shipping and taxes to get it into the netherlands. At least as long as I buy it before Brexit.

Why is it so hard to find a vrndor for this?

Hans lives in Indianapolis and like many, does the 928 project stuff as a side business under the Project Nine company. When in doubt call Roger at 928sRus, if he doesnt carry it he can certainly help facilitate getting you one and at lowest possible shipping costs.

Just DM him on here, should be easy enough to find him. He's made a lot of quality items for these cars...I have his re-issue of the Ott adjustable drop-links, the Sharkwoofer sub enclosure and his front component speaker setup. I almost ordered one of these shifter kits but when I decided to let a pro do the work, I just stuck with the stock setup with which the pro was familiar. In any case, he's always been very responsive when I've contacted him.

I have one in my 86.5 and I have to agree it's "****". I had a short shifter in my '80 and it was like driving a tractor. This is the only way to go.

Does anyone have pics of how it looks with the shift boot and **** reinstalled? Iím curious as to how long or short it is as I actually like the long tractor-style look of my Ď78ís stock shifter.

Turbine - It's not that high/long. I have it on the second highest setting so using the second and third hole from the top on the adjustable lever (so maybe 1cm shorter than highest setting).

Guys, while heaping praise on Hans, let's not forget his super-nice radiator fan shroud ...
