Here's my 964 RS in Race livery.
Speaking of rage livery
make sure the speakers are on for this one.

MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! There isn't anything that sounds like the exhaust bark of of a 911! I've heard many of them, and it still never gets old!!
Very nice. Any more photos?
Sorry to see you selling, I always liked your SC.
Are you working on a new show in NY? Too bad you can't take one of them.
Not mine, but I thought it was a bad ass beach cruiser...
leather lined engine bay...
Oh boy does Singer build some gorgeous cars.
I could do w/o the leather engine bay, but otherwise the car is stunning.
I need a lotto ticket ...
Those cars are just unspeakably beautiful.
A note for the early gen. watercooled owners:
My '01 Boxster had it's original waterpump fail the other day at 63k miles. When we removed it the bearing was bad/loose and the impellers were starting to break up. The serpentine belt was also toast. We flushed the cooling system twice, replaced the pump and belt. All is back to normal.
If you have one of these motors - do yourself a favor and replace the waterpump and belt every 60k miles.
What is the official service interval?
No, just hanging to see what comes up. May end up taking the 968 out for the summer. It's not generating the <strike>interest</strike> feeding frenzy the SC did..
I'm probably going to get a Smart car, though. Much more practical for the city and I won't lose any sleep leaving it on the street.
Porsche says replace the belt at 60k miles.
There is no stated service interval on the waterpump. Some folks have gone much further on theirs than 60k, but mine was completely shot.
Interesting. I guess they did the math on that one and figured they could stretch the service interval to the last second.
Personally, I would never replace a timing belt/chain without also doing the water pump. Labor is usually similar to get to both items on most engines these days. It's a "while you're in there" kind of thing.
It's not a timing belt, this motor doesn't have one. It's the serpentine belt on the outside of the motor that drives the waterpump, alternator, A/C, etc. It is simple to replace, takes longer to access it than to change it. I think the failing waterpump was responsible for at least some of the belt damage/wear.
The waterpump is a bit of a bitch to change, mainly because of cramped quarters and dealing w/ gallons of coolant.
I created it, then I ordered it...
50 years separates these 911s:
