2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Mon Feb 13, 2017 1:23 pm    Post subject: 911&PW mag- modded 996s Reply with quote

There is a good article in this month's 911 & Porsche World on modified 996s- it was good, well worth a read.

Really like the idea of a 380bhp Autofarm engined 996 4S, should mine ever need engine work!

Given where prices of 996TTs and GT3 have gone, it makes a lot more sense than it did.

Agree

I think 997 'S' cars because of the bore scoring stories will also make them the project car of choice for the next 5-7 years or so. Personally I think it is superb and a great thing for the Brand which had lost that 'tinkering' and 'personalising' which gave it character when the air cooled bubble began...... Scratch Chin

2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Mon Feb 13, 2017 2:43 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Agreed- I like what RPM are doing with their 'CSR' cars.

A bloke down the road has a 997 CSR, looks and sounds fab.

I have the beginnings of a plan for my 4S, should my boat come in... involving Fuchs or 996.2 GT3 wheels, a 3.9 rebuild and a LWF.

It was a very interesting article!

The Autofarm and soon to be Hartech closed deck engine upgrades make this a very tempting proposition.

Would be interested in a comparsion of the acceleration times between the 3.9 rebuilt engine and the standard 996 turbo.

If only the number plate was included Floor

Great to see the modded 996 magazine article though Thumb

Ouch my eyes! That things a shocker.

Robert thanks for the heads up. I've just text the wife and told her what I want for Valentine's Day. Hopefully she'll pick me a copy up on her way home. Will be the first mag I've bought for 3 or 4 years mind, so it better be good. Wink

Some nice cars featured. I do like the duck tails.
Decent feature but would have liked a bit more detail e.g. Wheel sizes etc. Although I know I can ring the suppliers and ask and the feature shouldn't read like a spec sheet. Wink

PS I can read the tyre size is 18" in one pic.

Having not seen the article, and I guess the answer to my question could vary, however..,

Does anyone know or have first hand experience on what a 3.7 closed deck engine build typically costs?

Making the assumption that the engine is health from the perspective that its still running and has not lunched itself.

The article says between £12-£15k for the Autofarm 3.9 full monty conversion, inc special cams etc giving you 390bhp.

Seen that car a couple of times.

It's eye catching if nothing else.

I just read this article on a plane and thought it was good but shows you can't get much more power out of them without going big bore. I too would be interested to see how quick the 3.9 is in comparison.

The article refers to a previous light weight 996 v's GT3 piece in an earlier mag, was that also a good read?

It would be great to read about ELA's light weight masterpiece in a comparison test once it's finished.
