Its low all right! Price is a bit high, IMHO. $37K would be about right, and that's only if someone wants all the mods. Sweet looking car, though.

And 5-8 HP for a chip seems kind of low to me. I thought that a Rennsport chip was worth 12 HP in a 95.

I despised 993's for the first year or so, now I love them. They really grow on you after a while. The curves start to make sense. The rear is just awesome. While I love almost all Porsche cars, I think the 993 is fast becoming my favorite body style.

I love the stance on that car it looks so mean. But the price does seem kinda high for a 95 w/65k miles

It's so low, it almost looks photoshopped.

How can you go to low? Also in AZ we have great roads with very few potholes and no bad weather. So driving a slammed car is easy.

Steve/Az911, generally car suspensions were made to work in a certain range of positions, if you go above or below that point the suspension geometry can be ruined which can be more negative for the handling than the decrease of CG is positive resulting in worse handling. And that is not even taking into account keeping enough shock and spring travel when you go that low. If you don't get the appropriately shortened shocks that can cause problems too.

I'm not a big fan of the chrome wheels, and it does seem too low, and I really like the GT2 Evo look, but that may be a bit much for the street for most people especially if you can't back up the look with the performance.

Speaking of, I wonder how poorb0yw/Princeton is coming along with his car?

$42k? Ha ha ha ha.. nice one. About $10k over I think.

Nice looking car except for the bling-bling wheels...don't care for that chrome look myself. I guess this person doesn't realize that when you mod a car it doesn't necessarily add value.

I think the suspension is a little too low to be effective. i.e. It may bottom out too easily.

Put a couple of swiffers on the bottom of that red car and you could make some money sweeping the streets. That is definitely too low -
