I looked at Porsche on CarGurus and several other popular internet sites and it appears that the basic C4 models, in any form, are the least popular by a huge margin. I just don't see how you can...

I did not find enough base C4 cabs for sale to consider it a reasonable data sample. For...

That is pretty normal with aftermarket exhaust. DFI engines blow a lot of crap out when you start cold.

I had my 997 shipped open transport 1700 miles from Newport Beach to Milwaukee. It took 2 weeks and cost $900. It arrived dusty, but unharmed.

In case my oil had been over-filled, I replaced the AOS. A borescope doesn't reach the bottom of the cylinder, so it doesn't do much good in the 997.2 engine.

38 degrees here, it rained much of last week and the snow and salt are pretty well gone. I took my C2 cab out yesterday. I can't push it real hard, because oil temp never got over 175. It felt great...

I taught my sister to drive manual transmission on a 64 Dodge 426 Max Wedge.I would have bet anything she wouldn't be able to do it, but she did. She never asked to drive it again, though.

Endurance is offering me their platinum 5 year/100k policy for $140 month, on my 09 CS2 with 54k miles. That isn't exactly cheap, but it might be OK for 1 year.
