Default Ultimate Turbo For Sale!....

Old school look w/993TT power in a lightweight 2WD platform....Indeed.

I can't believe it myself, but yes, I actually have a deposit on something that I would like to have in my garage. That means my loved 964R will have to go...and if it doesn't sell, then don't feel sorry for me...as you may surmise, life doesn't suck getting to drive the R every weekend or so....

I know everyone is going to ask...all I can say is a "new car" is one that my wife says is "OK" to haul a kid or two around in....and the kid hauling was not a consideration when I started the R project, but now it means a tremendous amount to me....

Aggressively priced in accordance to the window of opportunity with the "other" car. A significant piece for the money given the build, performance, rarity and media pedigree of the R. Actually, and hopefully my wife won't see this, but you get the car for "free" and about 40% off the build cost..maybe a bit more. I'm afraid to open the folders and actually put pen to paper. Only thing I would ask is that the buyer put forth his/her best efforts to make the car available for a feature shoot for GTPurely Porsche in late June-early July. I promised them the car and I'd like to stick by that.

PM me for my phone # and you can read a bit on the car in either November '08 Excellence or April '09 911&Porsche World.

Offered at Ninety-Thousand USD for thirty-days (actually a bit less until June 15th)...then the hold on the other car disappears and life goes back to normal...and yes, I consider a +2700lb car w/500 HP "normal"....


Adding...requested pic of the front of the car...BTW, these pics are the handy work of master journalist and photog, Zach Mayne....awesome talent.

I've seen this car in person (last time was almost a year ago), and it is very well done. I'd sure love to have 500 pounds out of Rufus (without giving up anything)... this must be a hoot to drive.

Steve:

VCR just isn't the same w/o you and Rufus.......thanks for the kind words. If all works out I'll ping you w/pics that you will certainly appreciate.

All the best,
Robert

Robert, what the hell are are you doing man! It must be a really hawt car that you are considering for this to even be an idea worth any consideration. Dollar bills guys you can't build one that nice for the money, best part is that you get to enjoy a really nice car now.

Lincoln...its more the kids than the car...but the car would be pretty sweet. With a different car I'll get to go to events 4x a month instead of 1x....that will make our household a much happier place!!
