As my family keeps on growing, time is harder and harder to come by. At this point, I do not have the time to continue working, enjoying and driving my pride and joy. This has been my blood sweat and tears for the last 4 years, so please keep your negativity to yourself and out of my thread. I built this car as a track car first, street second, therefor the choices I made reflects this. Although heavily modified, I believe there is enough left for you to make this your own.

Please know what you will be inquiring about. Driving this car is borderline insanity and adrenalin at the same time. It’s not for everybody. The car is loud, wake up the neighbors loud….. it is hard to keep straight, although modest in power, it is enough to make this car tail happy at will, with a snap of the throttle…..when you let the motor unwind, it will bury you in the seat and give you a smile…..I love everything about this car.


The car started as a 1988 Turbo S. Bought April of 2009 with 121,100mi, it sat for a couple of years until I had the time and money to get this project started.

Interior was the plaid silver rose, was converted to black. Dash has no cracks.

No AC, I have all the porsche lines and LS1 lines included with the sale.
The manual steering is not heavy, as long as you are not at a stand still, you get a lot of feedback from the road. Some like it, some may not, it was never an issue for me.
Trans is slightly notchy on 1 & 2, IMO. I have not tried to readjust the SS again since
The driver’s seat SPG has a cigarette burn, although not from a cigarette, its a long story and that’s the best way to describe it.
The light for the HVAC does not turn on at night, I have not looked into that yet, but the HVAC controls works as it should.
The car was purposed as a track car, so please do not expect it to be a show car, BUT this car will put a lot of street cars to shame.
Rear brakes squeak all the time, you will need to install those little vibration dampers on the pads.
Removed the power sunroof, installed manual latches.
No rear carpet as shown.
The gas gauge only reaches to 7/8s full and the temp gauge stays low, but is working. You can just replace that portion of the gauge and call it a day,
I have driven this car to the grocery store and home depot more than any of my past SUVs or any other cars combined, its always been an experience.
