Very nice.

How does it compare to a regular 944 turbo?

its a little faster

Nice 951S! i think the silver rose is actually the LEAST rare of the actual 951S cars.

my zermatt silver car is 1/36. they made 339 silver rose cars... still a beautiful color though!

welcome to 951S ownership, enjoy the boost :-D

Well, the silver rose cars are extremely rare considering that it was a color only available on 951S; Zermatt Silver was available for that year on "regular" 944 turbos.

What are you planning on doing with the other silver turbo? Selling? Keeping?

Welcome to the club! The paint color has really grown on me over my years of ownership. In certain light, especially early morning it really looks cool. Darker where the light hits it less directly. Here's what I mean:

Believe me.......... You dont want to base the car you have on what I paid for this one.
Yours is Probably worth $14-$18K depending how Mint it is and how it runs.

Yes that is very resonable, And Let me say......... I have owned a 944 Turbo for a little while now and I love it! So for you guys who have 944 Turbo's that dont have LSD, Sport suspension, Thicker sway bars, and Very nice Clubsport wheels. Let me just say that after driving this turbo S from where I bought it 150 miles away to my home and just knowing I have such a rare car with all the options I could possibly want in a turbo $15.5 for a Low milage Maintained Turbo S is Worth EVERY PENNY!!! LET ME SAY THIS AGAIN EVERY PENNY!!!!
