Fünf Gruppen means five groups (of something), Gruppe 5 in contrast group #5...

Hi Roland, thanks for the input.

Gabe and i were aware that 'Gruppen' is the plural of 'Gruppe' or Group, but we went with Gruppen for two reasons. First, to distinguish us from the already extant and well known 'R Gruppe' here in the US, and Second, we wanted the plural 'Gruppen', to be symbolically inclusive of all owners of the iterations of the turbocharged aircooled flat-6, from the seminal 930 through the 993TT, and of course racing versions. Sort of a 'play on words' if you will, with Group 5 being the focus as it most succinctly sums up Porsche's fanatical, no-holds barred quest for turbocharged horsepower from the flat-6 in a drive for total domination... which is what we are about.

BTW, did you ever find a source for the ducted rear flares you were asking me about? This is your car, yes? Beautiful.

It would be fairly easy to modify your existing flares to accept the RSR style rear ducts. Are your rear flares fiberglass or steel?
