Hi

A good friend of mine has just brought a awesome 1992 Carrera RS, it has come with a lot of paperwork already. We were discussing last night how we could find out more about the car, thought I would put a post up to ask if there any ideas.

On another note the car is there a good place to go to for parts too please?

Many thanks

Whilst I prefer this forum to P’heads nowadays, I would have to say ask on P’heads as 10-15 years ago there were still a lot of the guys tracking these and using them. I’d be amazed if someone didn’t know the car if it is a uk car or has been here for a long time.

Failing that there’ll be a Porsche club register with registrar for that model.
I don’t do the club thing though so know nothing about who to contact.

Congrats to your friend though. Lucky beggar! I love 964s and the RS is pure porn. Thumb

PS For parts your main dealer will be best for new genuine stuff. For any rare used parts try Jasmine, RPM, 9M, etc.

Someone has responded to your mates Fb post regarding previous owner history (assuming it’s the blue one). - Nice car!

Post on the 964 RS database on Facebook, or contact via the website which has a VIN tracker

http://www.964rsdatabase.com/

Martin has a record of most of the cars

I have the contact info for the The Porsche Club 964 Carrera RS Register Secretary. I am unsure on just posting his contact details up on here, but his details are freely available in the club magazine. So if you want to send me a PM I can advise them.
