Not that many photos of those around... I remember seeing photos of the complete car in a book. But can't remember the name of the book.

There are a number of old photos in this book taken long before the transformation. great picture cocktail table book but I found a good portion of the info was majorly incorrect. IIRC They even go as far as saying some 256 American GS were made?

BTW it also has some very nice photos of Robert's black slope cab.

Damn, Robert. Can't you guys figure out how to incorporate the stickers into the CF, They must add .01 ounces each.

No seriously, as always amazing workmanship and beauty in design.

worth mentioning - the 930 was the last made as well (i believe the last of the pre-964 911's actually)
Bob has the the Last of the 911/930 series and the Last 964, Seinfeld only has the Last aircooled car (a 993)
***Bob Correct me if i am wrong there***
i Don't think that Torque converter picture is recent is it? - Bob did you finally decided to sand cast the case in Mg?

Torque converter component picture is brand new. As are the following pictures of the billet aluminum stator.

The 930 is the last one ever built. The America GS is certainly the last 964 completed by the factory but not the last 964 built. As to Mr. Seinfeld's car being the last air cooled, some at the factory have raised a bit of doubt.


P.S. CONGRATULATIONS! And far, far more important than any car or any other thing!!

Thanks Bob & well put- we are blessed with 2 girls (Ainsley & Now Quinn). I have been lessening my involvement with cars for them , soccer and such until we can start Karts next year for Ainsley (if she wants!)

Interesting on the GS - and on the 993 that seinfeld owns.

The stator is a thing of beauty - weigh to stock?

luckly i have some time tomorrow for the F1 race (brawn!) and the kirkland concourse

Thanks & I hope not.
I'll probebly get something with a rear seat though! It does eliminate the GT cars for the time being as I don't think I should have 3 2seater porsches.
