Seats are in great shape with deep bolster sides. Crack in the top of dash and floppy under dash a/c below glovebox. See pics.Not much service history on the car. The exterior is self explanatory from the photos.. The car was repainted years ago with an improper prep on a galvanized body and so it goes with the Texas heat that it is flaking, all over. Only 2 areas of rust through near the horseshoe at the front. Car runs and drives. I would plan on towing car to its destination. Shipping arrangements to be at the expense of the buyer.Clear Texas title. An out of state move forces sale, time is of the essence. Sold as is."

I drive the car most days too and from work only a couple miles both ways.
A/C has no charge, but its only 2 miles for me. Shifts, and stops, and runs.
I've only had the car 6 months. In which time, I chased down a heavily cracked vacuum line that had kept the car
from being driven. Once replaced, vacuum line from air box through firewall back under car over torsion leading to 
brake booster(whew!), she was a joy to drive.

I wish the car could move with me, but its not meant to be.
It's the last of the narrow bodies. And as such has survived turbo tails and flares.
For all its faults, it's an honest car with loads of character.

Recent leak down test revealed number 4 cylinder to be at 52%, all others perfect.
The head studs were all torqued with no issues and valves adjusted accordingly. 
Valve cover gaskets replaced and a set of new plugs installed.
I had the test done in the hopes of providing the new buyer with enough to make
an informed decision with regards to the all important heart of the car. With no 
previous service record of a rebuild, the current mileage, and no chain tensioner upgrade,
here's the contradiction to all that has been written about this model year Porsche.

I don't think there's a panel on this car that does not have a dent.See pics.

See what the Chevy C7 ZR1 may be benchmarked against

Tue, 07 May 2013 11:27:00 EST

One of the greatest things every Corvette has had going for it, and also one of the most re-used arguments against it, is its price-to-performance equation - long before the Nissan GT-R became the de facto Porsche 911 comparator the Corvette spent decades as Exhibit A. Depending on which side of the argument you stressed, supporters crowed about how much performance you got for how (comparatively) little, detractors carped on how little you got everywhere else in the bargain.
It appears Chevrolet is working as hard as ever to render the argument meaningless. Spy shooters at KGP captured a convocation of European birds of prey leaving the General Motors test center, and aimed at benchmarking the C7 Corvette ZR1. The road train comprised of two C7 Corvette Stingrays, a 2013 Corvette ZR1, McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari 458 Italia, Audi R8 V10 Spyder and Porsche 911 Carrera S and it was last seen heading down the same kinked-up back roads used to hone the Corvette Stingray.
The C7-series ZR1 and its possible 700 horsepower are still a ways off. If it really is being positioned to compete with the celestial exotica in the testing group, could it be the first Corvette to regularly be the first answer to the question "Cost no object, which would would you rather have?"

The Bearable Lightness Of Being
Start with a standard Porsche 911 Carrera and its 350-horsepower, 3.6-liter flat six-cylinder engine. Bore a crepe-thin slice of aluminum from each cylinder to get to 3.8 liters, add a wider track out back and two extra exhaust pipes and voila, you can append an S to the Carrera's name. Hang two sets of wet, multi-disc clutches along its spine and you can make that a 4, or a 4S. Bolt on two forced-induction compressors and piping, add two fender vents and comically wide rear tires and you've redeemed your ticket to a Turbo. Increase the boost pressure and swell the corral to 560 horses and you have the Turbo S, which is the Virginia Slims of the 911 line-up because it's come a long way, baby.
Or you can go in a different direction. At that second stop, grab the 3.8-liter and cart it over to the engineers at Porsche's development center in Weissach, Germany. If racing were meat, they would be among the alpha carnivores. The baseboards in their homes are probably painted with miniature billboards for motor oil and vintage cigarettes along the straights, red-and-white stripes around every corner.

Porsche drivers escape this horrific VIR crash unscathed

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 11:02:00 EST

There is no doubting the fact that it takes nerves of steel to be a racecar driver, but the same can also be said for motorsports photographers. Case in point: The American Le Mans Series Oak Tree Grand Prix at the Virginia International Raceway where two Porsche 911 racecars crash hard into the tire barrier, but the dedicated cameraman stays with the shot - diving away only at the last second just as the battered No. 31 car (shown above) comes to rest atop the tire barriers just feet from where he was standing.
The crash occurred when the two Porsches charged hard into a corner. Judging by the video, the white No. 48 car appears to not see the orange No. 31 and the two cars make contact, skidding off track hitting the tire barriers at a high rate of speed. Both drivers walked away from the frightening crash, but the video - posted below - shows just how bad things could have been. Hopefully the close call will serve as a lesson for the woman standing in the track marshal's post who has her back to the racing as the two cars barrel directly toward her.
