The wastegate exhaust has scrapes on it from touchin pavement when you light it off! he says he wants to sell it but he never does, I think he is just waiting for me to have enough money to buy it from him, or thats what i tell my self hahaha
Not the exact car but same color and everything
Gorgeous, what a great 3/4 view. My brother had a 930 that he let me borrow once, my memory is pretty much exactly as yours was.

I love Porsche design!

Not only the cars, but pretty much everything they do.
I have just recently thought about buying the Rattrapante Chronograph.
I found it through a blog (http://chrono24blog.com/) and have since then been in love with it

I am actually living in Germany at the moment and it is wonderful, since this is the homeland of this wonderful company and I quite see a lot of their cars drving around all day. The new Panamera S looks interesting!

Just to see if there is any interest, The Euro import 79 930 my uncle has is for sale. if any one here is SERIOUS about buying it please contact me via private message then I will give you my phone or email. He would really like it to go to some one who will appreciate it but more importantly DRIVE it!!! not a garage queen. I have have drove it and WOW... thats all I have to say. It will be in the North east in a month or two.

enough with the sales pitch here are some more porsche pics!

911's are pretty small cars. Every time I put mine in my garage I think "Hmm, I've got room for another motorcycle in here."

I love my 911 carrera,circa 1974. I can just look at it all day long. Of course I can drive it all day long too, But Im tired of every asshole trying to bunt me off the road. Its like an invisible bullseye is on it. Spends lots of time hiding in my garage with my fleet of KTMs.

Everyone here tries to race me from every stop light. I drive the same speed that I do in the MB but in the Porsche, even moms in mini vans have to race away from the light somehow qualifying their minivan existence.

I'd take a WAG that the 911 is at least a foot shorter than my 968. And probably 6" narrower.

Try driving a Miata.

EVERYONE has something to prove when you're cruising around in a small convertible.

Advice requested on the above. A good friend is thinking of buying it cheap. I'm wary of cheap Porsches.

It's listed as a 2003 Porsche Carerra 4S with 110,000 km on the clock.

It's a locally owned car which usually means that servicing has been neglected.

Are there known issues with this year and model?
