All right dude, a new horse in the stable! Looks nice, I don't care it it's not a 930. 951's were good machines. More picts, and more impressions. My girl is still sleeping, sipping on 12V cocktails during the winter hiatus.

Nice looking car!
I've read how they handle incredibly well with near 50/50 weight distribution.
Approximately what does one that nice go for?

It just rolled off the transport truck this morning, bought it from a really stand up guy from over on Rennlist. Paid 13k, and so far I think that was a fair deal.

Took a bit to get it cleaned up after the truck ride, then checked all the vitals and took her out, to shake the cob webs out. Pretty nice balance, acceptable performance for an essentially stock 951 {been chipped that's all}.

Needs bigger sways, cat removal to start with...I'm sure the slope is just as slippery with these as it is with a 930.

Don't think I'll slam it like I did to my 930...but don't hold me to that.

Anybody in the market for a real low mile, perfect mechanical condition Infinity G37S coupe??

Have you guys installed beefier rear axles? My coworker has one and he said the rear axles are really weak.

13k sounds like a screaming deal. Car looks very well cared for!

All services for everything important has been done within the last 3K-ish miles. Brakes and fluids less than 5K, oil new, blah, blah, blah.

Just put it up in the air and did a thorough once over, found nothing alarming. Fixed a couple of minor electrical items, adjusted a couple of items and noted that the clutch master cylinder has a slight weep...that's it.

So now to drive it a bunch and see what there is to see.

I think everybody with an air cooled P car should get a Wasser pumper too....but what do I know.

reading this is making it harder to sell my 951. My 2nd a 88-951. Now I have an 86-951 which is at the last stages of restoration. Paint, seats, dash, just installed a MBC. The 951 is a reliable, economical, and versatile car. At this point I would rank them 930, 951, 996tt. Honestly.
Now I have a chance to get 2 928S4 parts cars to build 1. Too many cars. Parking fees alone are stupid here.

I bet that catches most people off guard. Getting smoked by a older 944 in your New Camaro, Mustang or Whatever...
