Summary:

This car simply rocks, despite having to replace some original parts

Faults:

The original fuel pump stopped working.

The original water pump wore out.

The clutch has seen some abuse, but still works.

General Comments:

This car has always been a great running car.

It's a tad sluggish or so, but still quite quick when it gets in third gear.

The handling is great; I can take a turn at 60 mph or so.

Summary:

Bad ass German with an attitude

Faults:

Someone tried to steal it with a screwdriver on the driver side so I can't open the door. The hood opener broke, actually that's it. Almost forgot the air valve on one tire had a leak.

Haven't had the car very long and the jerk who had it before me has repainted the car. It's a real Martini Edition but mine is Porsche silvergrey. I guess that's okay but it will get a respray when I have modified the fenders to GTR.

General Comments:

A bad ass car when you get to know it. Mine is a little faster than standard because of some fiddling with the air and I'm gonna make a engine stabilizer very soon. The GTR kit is coming on in winter, we are gonna do a little lowering very soon and adding 205/55 tires on the stock rims.

That's all you need for a thrill, it's also a lighter car than stock and a cooler interior.

Could be a little faster but I'm gonna get me a 944 soon to so I'll think I change engine in my 924. I'm already on it, my friend got a 3.0 litre in his, it runs like a rocket, he has also added turbos. The car sprints 0-100 kilometers in 3.98 seconds and has a topspeed of 297kmh and 589 horsepower.

What did you do when you "fiddled with the air"?

Well, why would you ruin a Martini edition with changing motor, color, fenders and so on? This is a valuable car in original shape. Get some other ugly 924 cheap to fix up, that is most fun. But like Martini edition. that's a holy one, you got me right? :)
