      Seems realistic. Claimed factory weight was 557kg or something.

      I guess thats why contemporary Porsches are colloquially known as Porkers...

      Thats really light. Cars sure have 'grown'. Ta for the info.

      LHD 912 on Carsales for 34k. Seems they are being dragged into the stratosphere along with early 911's in the same manner as bay window Kombis have benefitted from the split windscreen craze.

      Hey Way - which state did your car migrate to after you sold it? In hindsight it was a master move…..strangely the market hasn't been very kind at all to 996 GT3's.

      There was also a video of Chris Harris in a Singer, but I can't seem to find it now

      Cars and Coffee in Brisbane last Saturday the 6th.

      Finally had my car back on the road after all the suspension and brake upgrades and Cal took a few photos of it.

      Not long hood mate, basing it off the 74 IROC cars. Specifically Denny Hulmes car as in this pic without the sponsorship logos.




      The first two years of the International Race of Champions series they ran identical 3.0 911 RSR's. Originally they came over with the ducktail but they quickly developed the dual grill whale tail for them.

      Next up for the car is the IROC bumpers, all the window trim re-anodised, rear pop out and front opening qtr windows to get some cooling in the cabin, the black flag mirrors to replace the current ones, the oil cooler to the front, custom headers and exhaust, quick release for the deck lid so I can have the ducktail for the street and whale tail for hillclimbs, trackdays and shows as well as a full repaint taking it back as far is required. We'll also be replacing the sunroof with the full metal roof and I'm sure more stuff will come up.

      Already writing the list for stage 3 of the build to cover all of the above. We'll finish the build with stage 4 at some stage in the future with a 3.6L engine rebuild with a GT3 crank. Obviously I've got to save to do these stages so it will take time but I'm starting to plan and gather parts for the next stage currently.
