YES THEY ARE! It is a whip driving around DFW, my 996 has 4 bent wheels right now and screw it they are not getting fixed until they will not balance any more.

Once you get comfortable with the T, we'd love to hear a comparison between the two?!
That is what my family of all women said It took some esplainin to get the differences over to them. Yes, I miss my 90 C2 and it was pretty much done so here is a new palette to work from. I am not sure how far this one will go. New turbo that spools up quicker is a definate, maybe EFI with a Motec and from there? It kind of depends on if the motor has to come out to fix the leaks. If so then P&C's for sure and probably bigger than stock.

I had rather not say but I have room below market to fix what needs fixing.

Sweet! That's a nice car. Congrats!

I don't see red on black that much. Most I've seen have tan interiors, which is fine. But personally I like black int.

Congrats on the car...What a beautiful car.....Red my favorite color...The picture with you backing the car in the garage to me is a money shot...The baby is being parked in its bed......

I sometimes thought of selling my low mileage and garaged 1990 C2 and my 2004 Cobra for a nice 964T as well.....I am just afraid of losing two cars that I enjoy dearly and then not finding a good to great example 964T..

Also Thanks for the new desk top picture...

CobraCarrera,

I fretted over selling my 90C2 as it was done, fast and almost perfect at 54,000 miles and for a while after I had regrets for selling it. I could have bought it back as a friend has it and not long after selling to a guy who does not work on cars the dizzy belt broke. I paid for the repair but now he is nervous about driving it for the cost of repairs.

I am glad I stuck it out now. Thanks for the nice comments everyone. Up top will be its home like my old C2 once it is brought up to standards!

Here is the only one I have of the completely stock interior. The 2 options on the car are LSD and CD radio. Leather was standard.

I never saw it there. There was a red one owned by Don Lee(I think?) on Pelican but not this car?

Beautiful car. One of these days I hope to get a Turbo sister for my C4. Love the color combo.
