Bought this Gen 1 997 Carrera S back in August with a bore scored engine. Took the engine out, fully stripped it and got Hartech to remanufacture both cylinder blocks. Now got the engine rebuilt and fully future proofed with new large bearing IMS, pistons and rings, main and big end bearings, chains, low temperature thermostat and a multitude of other new small parts. It’s now ready to go back in and looking forward to getting the car back on the road in the spring.


Fantastic job Thumb it would be great to see pics of your rebuild, maybe you should start a thread Question

Looks so much cleaner without the front plate! I've removed it in Photoshop to see what it looked like

When the front finally needs a respray, I'm definitely going to remove the front numberplate. I'll probably make a temporary mount where the centre radiator isn't on my car.

snow queen.

what a hoot getting to the station on winter tyres. loads of drifting around and laughing at the big 4x4s who can't get up the hills on their 305 wide summer tyres.

lots of funny looks and surprise as you cruise past on the outside.

Now that is a great looking car and colour combo.

Great choice on the wheels and really sets the car off a treat.

Thanks, it's not really low profile..hahaha..That's the great thing about the 911,997. , no matter what colour it wears, it can wear it with style. This blue replicates the Mexico blue which can been on many classic and modern Porsches.

So is it a wrap? I've never seen that blue/brown combo in a standard car.

Yes its a Oracle film wrap, really did not want to.respray the original paint. Originally it's a flawless black with some sparkle, don't know the colour code. Interior is natural brown, did not like it at first but it grew on me. Again, I had black interiors in so many of my cars, and had red too.

I'm pretty sure i saw your car as I went into Liverpool a few weeks back. I can't imagine that there are too many speed yellow 997s in the area. Looked great Thumb
