I'll stop in from time to time, let you know how it goes - thank you SL BRABUS
If you thinking about air cooled.......

I would pick 964 or 993 over the 997 any days.....

Air cooled is such a classic with strong resale value.....

If you love to work on car the 964 or 993 is the car for you.....

If you have a mechanic fix on any 911 it will cost you an arm & leg.... Plus parts is very pricey on any 911 compare to any SL....


Horsepower: enough power to go from point A to point B
Torque: enough to get the car moving

0-60 mph: not in a rush
0-1/4 mile: about 5 minutes @ 2mph because no need to showoff
