Counter of beans, Interesting that you rate the Manaro engine, I helped a pal fit one in a Triumph Stag...we fitted GT3 front brakes to it too... (-: Also, it seems there is at least one Porsche with an LS engine fitted.

I really don't get the angst for rhd. After 5 mins I never gave it a seconds thought! I am 6 foot with size 10's and it is non problem in rhd. I went from a 987 and much prefer the older car,engine is in a different league for enjoyment!

I’m in the process of going from a gen 2 to C4 993 cab.
G2 lovely, but for me too refined and more like a GT car. 993 more engaging and I just missed open top motoring even if this summer is the wettest in years Mad

No problem here with the RHD 993 pedal box and I'm 6 2" with size 11 feet. Do have to wear vans to drive it, rather than chunkier trainers, that's all.

I DO have a problem with the earlier 964 pedal box as it has the footrest between the clutch and brake, which I hated and couldn't get my foot in there.

Same here 6 2" with size 44. On a long run I wear Sparco racing boots or Hunziker driving shoes. Now a Scimitar GTE is a different matter terrible driving position.
Never a problem even after drives to Le Mans and the Alps.

Stocky 6 footer here with size 11's. Converse the footwear of choice and a couple of hours in the seat on a spirited run is never an issue. Thumb

I sold the 993 last year and went into a gen 2 997. Great replacement in my book but I get why you’re interested in a 993.

If you haven’t done the air cooled thing yet then absolutely go there. The one thing the smaller air cooled cars have is a better body shape (although I was never completely sold on the wimpy front PU from some angles) so be prepared to look back multiple times when parked up and walking away. 70k will get you a fabulous example.

All 911s are great cars and it’s nice to be in a position to change once in a while. I wouldn’t discount a 964 though; if you want those iconic upright headlamps, they are iconic.

Enjoy the hunt Thumb
