2003 Porsche 996 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Thu Feb 09, 2012 3:20 pm    Post subject: Dubshed, What have they done to this Porsche 964 RS? Reply with quote

I'm assuming everyone has seen this? Personally I quite like it until it drops down on the air suspension, it's not actually that offensive... Embarassed



Quote:
The following video trailer for the 'Dubshed' VW Group show in Belfast this March should contain a severe health warning for anybody with an affinity for unmolested Porsches.

Especially anybody who likes a decent 964 Carrera RS (lookalike we've been informed - Ed), because the vehicle that Dubshed has chosen to use to advertise its 2012 show might well make you cry.

Not only has 'D4M LO' been treated to a stupid numberplate, it's also been lumbered with some overly bling split rims (and are those stretched tyres we see in the video?) and some unnecessarily low suspension.

Oh, and if that upsets you, for the love of all that is good please click away from the video before 1 min 41 secs. Because at this point it's revealed that this Porsche is riding on air/hydraulic suspension of some kind and thus has even further to drop before the video is finished, both on its suspension and in our estimation.

Damn low? RS or not damn ruined, more like...

Looks nice at first glance

Suspension, ice and steering wheel are ridiculously horrible though (and GT3 seats dont suit IMO)

50/50 on the wheels, but there are dozens that suit the car better

I doubt it would have registered on PH, let alone made a major news story if they had actually seen its a C4 and not an RS

Seems putting an RS badge on can fool people who are supposed to know what they're looking at!

It's not my cup of tea as far as the stereo and suspension go, but wow, what a lot of negativity from the piston heads brigade...

A lot of RS's get thrashed on tracks and even crashed, so even if it was an RS instead of the c4 that it is, is it really such a crime to humanity?

It's all reversible...

Nice base car but why would you want to make a nice Porsche look like a street tuned VW with those wheels?? It would actually look better on some original VW wheels!

You cant beat some of these Non Iron girls but she walks a bit funny....

I love it apart from the ICE, and the AiR. The fact it's been kept in show condition is a credit to the owner. Slamming the 64, and showing at Dub events, brings a whole new audience to the Porsche scene, and can only improve the value of the 64. Look at the price of Mk1 and Mk2 Golfs nowadays. Most of the youth, that hanker after an early Golf, weren't even born, when they were made, but are prepared to restore and modify and keep these classics on the road, for many years to come, and for me, they should be applauded. As for the model, I think she's stunning, I'd certainly be more than happy to show her a night out in my dreams Laughing

I enjoyed that on all levels, the car, the video and ahem, the girl. Not too keen on her catwalk strut though but what the hell, you don't take this stuff too seriously, it's entertainment!

Oh I do not know, I quite like it. She is clearly a model and her normal environ is the catwalkso why not. Strutting her stuff like a show horse just as the Porsche struts its stuff.

Sexy.

Spotted this 964 last night and again today. Must have been bought by someone local to me as we don't see many 911's let alone a silver 964 out in the rain!!
Its Presence on the road is great. Makes everybody's head turn. I'm slightly Envy
