Really, an RS with a sliding roof. I've not seen one like that before. I'd have guessed it was a clone from that alone, not mentioning the wheels, glass trim and looks like that seats were changed also. Most people would not make those changes and devalue a very expensive car. Nice looking car none the less.

Thanks Rinty, I'll check that out before I get too much deeper into this thing.

Cam timing 911 motors is relatively easy - just take your time and run through it at least 4 - 5 times.

These Porsche motors are a bit more intimidating.....

Who would expect to find a shop specializing in Porsche's in a small out-of-the-way California (blue collar) town

I was passing the dealer on my bicycle yesterday and noticed they were having an "event". Judging from the parking lot, there were a lot of current 911 owners coming for a look see. Nice collection of GT's too

I did notice a Panamera in the previously owned lot. It was being offered for a lot less than it's new price. Wonder if the Panamera is just not selling as well as they'd hoped?

She was (and is) a fine looking woman. Hell (HELL) of a driver, too.
