slippy.


Not "Tetchey" at all, the point is the car is unique in a positive way, given who built and why it was built it, I am well aware off your connection to the car and I respect your informed views on it.

Its a car that will never be replicated, unlike an RS or a GT2, which are easy to clone, all be it its much harder, to built a clone rather than a replica and there in lies the challenge its people understanding, especially in the UK that it takes more than an RS body kit and a set off wheels to make is an RS.

The snake is one of a kind and a unique insight into an analogue past, the likes off which we will sadly never see again.

Stunning car and always draws people to it where ever it goes.

I can concur it's a spectacular beast having shared a pit garage and track with it, had a good poke around it and been in it. I too was very tempted a couple of years back...a totally unique car the likes of which i doubt will ever be repeated

Hope all's well Les Thumb

Re the above black 993 RS turbo if she had original engine and gearbox boxed can you imagine how much she’d be worth having held the Ring record back in 1998? Not the same but I drool at the 3.8RS Hairpin have for sale. Fell off my chair when I found out asking £1.1m for the her.

With new GT3 RS changing hands for £200k+ I don’t think this is worth any less no? I’d rather own the 993 RS turbo personally than a robot but that’s just me. Car looks amazing standing still let alone taking her back to her old stomping ground at the Ring for a run.

These are not for the collector and the better for it. We’re the last generation that will be able to use these cars as intended. I’m going to make the most of it time permitting

Oh she’s a stunning car alright, truth be known, I don’t think I’ve seen a better looking 993. Period. I actually prefer the narrow body/RSR arch extension combo to the wide body/GT2 arch look.
Stance wise, the Black Snake has it nailed.

As the regards the bitsa tag, the ZanziCup is very similar : completely non standard, non-matching numbers engine, ditto gearbox (though both are factory M/Sport parts) pretty much all the suspension is non-standard (apart from the uprights) welded in Clubsport cage etc etc.

Would I swap it or the Black Snake for 991.2 GT3/2 RS ? No way !!

Regrettably I don’t have a degree in man maths... otherwise the Black Snake would have resided in my garage these last 3,4,5 years !!

it all boils down to money really .I should imagine almost everyone of us think the 993 GT2 is the best looking Porsche ever built .this car is stunning can you imagine being able to use it when you wanted and not having to worry about the value .I would buy it tomorrow if I could .dream on

I doubt Trantorman would sell this car for less than £200k but if anyone interested I’d encourage them to PM him and go and see the car. If you like her once you have a look over her make him an offer. Be fabulous for hill climbing and or time attack or just as a unique piece of Porsche history.

If I’m not mistaken all the changes were carried out at the factory? Engine had to be detuned/changed to 530bhp as otherwise you’d be rebuilding the engine once every few years as running an air cooled at 650bhp simply not feasible unless you are a race team. As the car is she can be used for many years without the big bills a racing team has a big budget for. This is the ultimate analogue drive to a track and then drive back home 911.

Right I’m off to buy my a lottery ticket Grin
