It was way too costly to bring these cars up to spec. The compliance center here in NJ was owned by the man who basically started the grey market and brought the early Ferrari's and lambos in. Cost to make these cars compliant were well over the cost of a new Porsche at the time. All of the cars we brought in were more than 5 years old so the owners could take advantage of the one time EPA exemption although DOT requirements had to be met. This was a far more reasonable approach....................................edit.. .........
Anthony,
My factory slant was imported into the US in '85 by an importer called, Exoticar Inc. (Gary Gnazzo). Port of Entry was Jersey. Heard of them?
