Nothing left on that worthwhile. Sad.

Does anyone know the story?
Except for that one in the California wildfire, I have not seen one taken down to the shell?
And is it my phoneĺs resolution of the picture or is the passenger front tire still intact?

Fuel lines or power steering?

If the kids keep breaking a crowbar in the sandbox, sometimes it is easier to just give them a stronger crowbar, instead of trying to figure out what they are doing in the sandbox.

Looming at it I would think it started in the rear since that front tire is still intact to a degree

Default Sad loss

Yes it is my former GTS! The new owner had it stored with his RV when the storage place burned down. Fire started in another area, but the whole place burned to the ground. He contacted me for pictures of the interior, for the insurance. Car had GT cams, 993TT rear brakes, Dave Roberts sway bars, Paul Champagne interior, rear seat delete, and a ton of other mods. A sad, sad outcome for a one of a kind Porsche.

That was the first car I thought of when I saw the three gauges.

Sorry for your former car loss, Jim. As I mentioned at 3rd Coast, it was you and that car that made me want a GTS.

Looks like it...IIRC Jim M fabricated that beautifully crafted air intake. That was a great GTS. T

Really sad.
One of the 38 US manual GTS produced during the 1992 model-year.
