Default gear ****/shifer.

Hi: Scott 1996 993c2 - is that the 993 RS gear ****, you got on yr car!

This is kinda complicated! "fussy query~ : is the color of the alloy on the RS shifter (gear ****) as bright white Aluminium look, as the Brake Handle.

Looking at old catalog from Porsche factory - they do look same bright Alloy - know what I mean - white crisp Aluminium (both white aluminium) - yet on couple of cars I notice the (gear ****) to be slightly grayish white in color - therefore not a good match with the "Bright white" of the Alum Brake Handle.

Nice car, BTW.

Cheers.

No, not the RS shift ****, but the MY02 alu/leather shifter and e-brake combo from Carnewal. Here is a link:

The fit and finish is soooo nice, I couldn't say enough. We did the same upgrade to my wife's Riviera Blue cab too as soon as we bought it. HUGE difference from the stock pieces. Carnewal also has the RS shifter ****, here:

Thanks alot Scott for the calrification. Also for letting me know, that that RS shifter is actually not an Alloy, but Carnewal says: Plastic! How disappointing

Wonder what are the best looking "black leather/alloy" shifters for 993 (Turbo unit in particular).

Good day ahead!

FINALLY starting to look like spring around here so I got to take the little black car out for a bit of exercise. The black 3.2 is a friend's 86 Euro model that lived most of it's life in Japan. It has 100000KM, 17" Fuchs replicas, a 74 RS 3.0 tail, and the deepest ORIGINAL black paint I've seen on a car of this age & mileage.

Car's in the garage - missing it already. Anyway - here's one more for the black 993 thread. Old pics - taken after a detail in the Galleria Car park at the Peak in Hong Kong where I use to park it.

Enjoy and more post some more blackies please ...
