I saw this 2.7 ST RSR last week which had just been fully restored (it was truly immaculate) - believe it will be put up for sale with asking price of around £350k - and no doubt destined for some private collection and never driven Dont know

There is money to be made in the right car, another one was sold for around €500k

Tonbridge have updated their progress on this car, quite a project unlike other OPC's just taking on 993's etc

Rumour had it that the owner of the franchise of which Tonbridge OPC is part has got first dibs on it to add to his already amazing collection.

I like the fact that it's been done in the same colour as the new 991 '911-50 edition' and that they're also doing the interior the same.

Tonbridge wanted a 991 in the same colour to show along side it but Reading couldn't supply it in time. That would have made a good display Thumb

Had a good chat with the Technician who has put 300 hours in to the restoration so far. He said the electrics need to be completed and the engine hasn't been fired up yet. He is looking forward to the test drive. He kindly allowed me to get a pic of him with car, unfortunately I didn't make a note of his name. He said that they wanted to show that OPCs can offer a good service on the classic stuff and there's no doubt that this is a good advert for Tonbridge

I have to say that that 991 next to it looks like a bit of a monster. The email that came through from Porsche Tonbridge looked as if a 996 GT3 RS was parked next to it when it was in the showroom. Does anyone that visited know if this was the case. Was the showroom full of classic Porsche - ?

Yes it was in the showroom and there was a 996 GT3 RS nearby.

Cheers Ron. Very nice GT2 and GT3 RS. I did ask my wife if she wanted to pop in as I was busy but she was not interested. Women Rolling Eyes . I assume the GT3 RS was owned by private individual. I wonder if it was anyone on here.

I believe most, if not all, of the cars on display are owned by the chap that owns the OPC Tonbridge franchise. I think he is also first in-line to buy the restored SC.
