I appreciate that. I actually don’t take possession of the car for another 2 weeks. It’s a ‘78 SC club sport with original suspension, 16” wheels, rebuilt engine and tranny last year.

Thanks for all the info. Sounds like a bad idea all around. And Iíd never want to go back to the power steering feel of my 964. Thatís one of the big reasons I wanted an earlier car.

Iím mostly looking for a suspension that will feel like my old 964 and take the harshness out of the torsion bars. Is that even possible without having to ďreinforce the tubĒ as you say?

Coil suspension for my SC?

I canít think of a worse way to waste $50k. I see 964 and 993 tips all over the place for low 40s. Maybe a rebuilt engine makes it worth $50k, I donít know. But hell, for $50k, you could have all...

I would add that I’ve only bought “driver” lever cars, so a blemish, scratch or chip here or there doesn’t bother me. If I was buying a high end, concours lever car, I’d certainly not buy sight...

Not planning on selling right away by any stretch, but I always sell my Porsches after several years of enjoyment. Not the same as flipping.

Thatís why Iím doing a ppi to determine my 993s future. If the ppi checks out, Iíll keep it, and if not, I have a great excuse to throw down with a gem of an SC. Itís a no lose situation.
