Maybe I'll buy a 997.2, convert to cable throttle and swap the wings and headlights from mine. Call it a Slinger or something.


Or 'Minger.'

Wonder how long it'll be before the likes of Singer, etc. start using a 996 as a base car for re-inventing the SC or 993? Question Grin


There was a guy on instagram that tried it Surprised

Just enjoy your 911's

Over the years I have been impulsive

With scant regard to INVESTMENT Bandit so
to me - look after it - enjoy driving it - 12 months of the year.

As an investment 996 / 997 will never be (apart from limited editions) investments.

Me too. Maybe in ten/fifteen years, when they can do it brilliantly, it might be a popular option.

Thought this valuation was interesting for a 2002 Targa C2 with 39k.
If its true then I'm up for a 997 sooner than I thought!
