Few details I know, but I have not really been able to talk to owner yet and would like to respect their privacy.
Please do. I don't want any of these fuckers knocking on my door.

Found a nice clean local 1995 911 Carrera (993) with 80k miles that I pick up on Friday... black on black, 2wd, a few options like limited slip diff, heated leather, sunroof and a 6 speed manual. Narrow body, no wrecks, non smoker, nice paint, no rust, no leaks, inspection checks out, new tires, new brakes, new fluids... here's some quick pics:

I expect to see this at many of the local gatherings

Look up the "Porsche Breakfast club" on yahoo and facebook for starters

Congratulations! And don't let the Rennlisters talk you into removing the towel rack.

haha... those used to bug me, but I definitely need to keep it if I keep it stock looking... one friend is trying to get me to put a ducktail on it which would get rid of that and the 993 classic appearance... exterior will remain stock for now... the prior owner has a sirius antenna just under it that I need to remove, as well as the cd changer in the front trunk taking up valuable space...

The ducktail: meh! They belong on '73 RSs.

What I like about the '95s (I have a '96) is that it's a bit easier to immobilize the immobilizer than in the later year cars.

This is a complicated topic, but roughly (very roughly ) the situation is something like this:

The 1995 993s have an "OBD 1" system (on board diagnostics). The '96 - '98 cars are OBD II, with the '96s having a different ECU than the '95s, and the '97's and 98s having a different ECU than the '96s.

Bill Verburg on the Rennlist has worked out (or found) a fairly easy way to bypass the immobilizer. I will try to find the thread over the weekend, and link it here.

On the '96 cars you need to install the later ECU (at least I think it's the ECU) and then replace a chip. It's pretty expensive. Steve Weiner in Portland provides this service.

Some '95s don't have the immobilizer; it was an option that year.

R.J.: here's Bill's thread:

http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforum...e-done-ha.html

But, truth be told, I don't worry much about the immobilizer anymore. I keep fresh batteries in the remotes, have a spare DME relay in the car, and take a backup key on trips.

It's sort of like not worrying about the EWS ring on your Hexhead BMW.

For me, the 993 willl always remain the most atractive of all Porsche 911s.
