My goodness. This is simply a jaw dropping project!

Wonder if any of those parts are for sale & the eventual prices to put it together!

I also wonder how do those carbon fibre suspension parts hold up in real life street/track days.

Parts not for sale to mere mortals... those are engineering exercises that influence motorsports parts his company sells.

Can't answer the second part of your question...

Robert, I know that you mentioned that the car could or could not make it to the Parade. Were you able to finish the work in time for the parade?

Thanks to Bob Gagnon.

P.S. Did not make it to the Parade; maybe next year.

A great use of carbon is very impressive.

If so, it will be in the trunk as normal. This valve, however, will be hidden and only the lever will be exposed and reset into the carbon fiber center tunnel piece. The titanium lever, by the way, has the Porsche Script engraved into it by Porsche AG.

964 part number!!??

Nice! Would be nice to see what it looks like once installed. Is completely different from the standard e-brake lever.

Thank you for sharing

How would you empty the oil tank? I can't tell by the photos, but it seems the oil drain plug is gone.
