I'm very happy to say after a 1300 miles of driving, worked out a couple of bugs with the AC system and a loose coil wire connection, she drives perfect, starts perfect cold , warm and hot, no weird noises, very smooth running, dry as a desert bone,

She drives much like my 993 until the boost kicks in, then you know it's a 965, Pulls hard, Sounds great with out the cat, a very well balanced car, I like the Bilstien HD shocks the brakes are solid, I love the LSD, I can fell the extra grip getting on the on ramps to the freeways.

I worked for Porsche Newport Beach California back in 1992, I get flash backs from those days when I drove these cars new. She fells just as good.....Good times

She still smells like new leather inside, no rattles, power everything works perfect, seats, sunroof, mirrors, AC..... 38 Deg, gauges, interior lights, alarm, Radio, OBC, rear wiper, headlight washers, all the switches feel solid. Simply a very well built Porsche, The last of the hand built air cooled 3.3 Turbos....

I'm amazed how much attention she gets at Cars & Coffee, even from other Porsche guys. They know how rare this 965's are.



The air cooled wrench at the Porsche or Arlington who did the aliment and charged the AC, wanted to buy her, LOL

Got to say It was worth the trade, Now My brother is like..... I want it back... No Go Bro...
