Default Full Circle - "New" 964

One of my first posts on Rennlist was a WTB listing for a 964. Well, that was like 6 years ago and two water cooled porsches later, I finally got my 964.

I bought Rennlister Enso's C4 coupe. He completed substantial mechanical and aesthetic upgrades over the past few years.
To name a few:
Complete engine rebuild;
Suspension refresh (Bilstein HD; H&R Purples/Greens);
Oil line replacement;
Full restorative repaint (down to metal and back);
clutch slave; heater; etc.

My immediate list is short, but includes floor mats; wipers; seats; and RS motor mounts. Also thinking about RS shifter.

Looking forward to a new type of porsche motoring.

Judging from his threads, Enso put a lot of sweat equity into that car. I'm happy to see that it is staying on the forum.

I'm interested in seeing the interior with the new seats.

Love the color!

Great seller, and yes, lots of work already done.

With great difficulty. Sure helped with shipping cost though.

Great car - although you lose points for not driving it back from Canada!

Feel free to drive it across the river if you'd like to get some extra eyes/hands on it - we're getting pretty good at swapping motor mounts and seats.

Also, before you go around buying shifter components, remember that the C4 has a different shift linkage than the C2/RS

If I had the time, I would have made the ride!

What river - Hudson or Delaware?

RS shifter is 964-424-015-08. This thread details how to install. Need to modify undertray.

Ha - you must have the shortest spring in the western hemisphere. But no snow must motivate you to get that 993 on the road!
