Thanks again for more pics Phil. I've alaways enjoyed seeing and reading about your RSs (993 & 964) both here and in GT Porsche. What kind of mileage do the cars have now, if you don't mind me asking?

No probs - I haven't written in GTPP for a while due to other commitments..children and a race car build. I might start up again soon if ed. wants some copy from me

964RS has 92000Kms and the 993RS has 52000Kms! Still babies really

Nice to see they're getting use. Didn't the 993 just get a new clutch? I'm also assuming you've still got the original seats and steering wheel. I've had an obsession with these cars since they were new, they never fail to grab my attention all these years later.

all the time ...

Yup, I had a lightweight RSR clutch fitted and it has transformed the car completely. You assume correctly regarding the seats and the wheel...Seats are in the spare bedroom and the steering wheel is hanging on the bathroom wall ;-)

Thanks for the great pics. I have to ask.... between the 964 and the 993 what would be some of the differences in handling? My 993 feels a bit rubbery compared to my older 911's . I just bough a KW coil over kit in hopes that it will fix whatever i'm feeling, I just hope its not because of the multi link rear end. I have never driving a 964 .
Thanks

Thanks for the photos. Deserves a blog site with some full resolution stuff. Is that a real RS? I have an image in my mind from the magazines with the "sunflower" RS about a decade ago and there's some differences ... : )
