the text needs updating to reflect road cars only, as it excludes the likes of RSR's as well

although need to kick Admin into shape as he's missed 4 sub variants !

i.e. splitting the C2 and C4 into 272 and 285 types.

question is, does that mean we will all have to vote again ? (probably!)

then of course we have RS comfort v RS clubsport !

?? is all that right ??.

It can get rather complicated if you start splitting the model types into variants, as Porsche did so many changes over a model yr, where do you stop?!? Before you know it you'll be splitting them to different options!

I'd say stick to main model types and make life easier for youself, it's not as if you haven't got enough to do!

sorta...........its a slightly safer car to push on in when it gets wet,in dry day-to-day driving you might be hard pushed to notice the difference,but in the wet its a bit more secure............

If you want a rare car, find a 3 series with indicators.

They are as rare as BMW drivers who realise there are 3 lanes available for their use on a motorway.

When buying the second 993, I did not mind C2 or C4.. I just wanted the nicest car I could find.. And it ended up being a non vario ram C2..
I found the C2 lighter and did not notice much difference in her being a non vario ram, if anything found the engine rev'd easier..

Varioram engines produced 285bhp from the factory as opposed to 272bhp for preceeding non varioram model.

As the name suggests, VarioRam varies the effective length of the inlet ducting depending upon engine load and speed. A long intake length at low rpm provides high intake air velocity, which aids low-end torque. At higher engine rpm, the intake length is reduced. The result is a flatter torque curve, with more torque available at low- and mid-range engine speeds compared to a similar non-VarioRam engine.

the 96 model year.........which is actually from July/August 95 IIRC the German car industry has a big holiday end July and cars produced from August onwards are the next years model(normally they use this as the launch of revisions to existing models)........
