It's a sexy car....but slow
I read about that at the time, didn't it fetch over a million bucks? It amazes me the affect fame can have on the price of goods. It is a beautiful example in its own right but...... Well if I had the money I'd probably buy it too.
Why didn't I pay more attention in school so that I could be rich enough to get me one of these. On the other hand considering the school I went to, it wouldn't have made much difference.
Here are a few more of my RS at VIR when I was doing some testing:
Was mine for a while. Supposed to substitute bikes, but that missed the spot ...
Ah, Cookie Cutters.
Yup, SC 1979. provided with the infamous californian exhaust air pump
Ok I have looked enough at this thread to give me incentive to post a picture of my 1973 911 RSR. It is a dedicated race car that weighs 1,950 lbs. Although not a true RSR, it does have some interesting parts and pieces. The car was never undercoated and still has the original headliner. It would be great to know the history through all the years because it has been raced for a while. It was imported from Canada and has stickers from Mont-Tremblant from early 90's.
Wow, looks too clean to be a race car! Even the wheel wells are clean.
'97 993 (non-race) owner here
Yeah, that picture was taken a few years ago after a lot work and detailing done. Although it does get a lot of attention after an event still.
PS Arena red / black my favorite color combo! and a 993. Definitely a keeper.
That's a keeper!
Looking at an '07 version of one of these right now:
What are it's foibles/achilles heels?
I've read maintenance can be a hassle due to limited access, and that it is also cursed with IMS failures.
Excellent condition with a 5-speed, PSM, S-spec wheels. 14,100 mi. $31,950 takes it.
Any insight from you Porschephiles?
IMS issues are plaguing a lot of models . Be diligent about checking the oil filter for debris during every change .
They are very nice cars. If you are spending that kind of coin -
Get a PPI before you buy from a good indy mechanic near you (ask/join PCA locals). Negotiate w/ indy that you are going to have them replace the IMS bearing w/ the LN aftermarket one as soon as you buy the car and never worry about it again. With a new clutch and RMS this should cost around $2k. Just bite the bullet and do it.
I have an '01 Boxster that's been great and I enjoy the hell out of if every time I drive it.
Yeah, tell that to my bank account
Nice to see another racecar!!.. Do you run it in HSR or PCA? Ferry Porsche once commented at a concours on what a depressing event it was since none of the cars were racing....
