As owners start upgrading classics like the 964RS it makes me wonder if the RS experience can be achieved with a standard 964 for far less.

If Manthey or the like got a hold of a regular 964 and applied all the usual upgrades; suspension, tyres, weight loss, strut brace towers and engine improvements could you not have similiar performance and feel albeit without RS badge?

Just wondering really.

In a nutshell yes, had a 964 C2 with some minor mods and it was a fantastic car to drive and companies like ninemeister whom I frequently toyed with spending bucketloads of cash with can do all sorts of further mods to make standard 964's 'better' like suspension upgrades strut braces, cages and motec engine mods even 400bhp+ engine rebuilds..it'll never have the provenance of an RS mind so spending this sort of money on a standard car will always be an indulgance..

Used to live in the area. Was great to have the 'ring just around the corner. It never got old or boring.

Provenance I could forgoe if there was the ability to create the feel of a 964 RS for £40K when the real thing costs at least double that. Its the sort of car I would buy to keep for the rest of my driving days for the raw pleasure it offered as opposed to being an object of vanity with all the right badges. smile

PORSCHE 911 964 FABSPEED RSR SYSTEM - FITTING PROBLEMS

Guys - I need some help....I have bought a Fabspeed RSR exhaust system for a 911 964 C2....single outlet tip (RHS) with new headers, muffler and sport 200 cats....there is a fitting problem with this system - the right-hand cat (RHD car) catches on the oil filter pipe and Fabspeed tell me that I need to acquire the modified oil filter pipe assembly to fit the exhaust. The LHS is okay.

Has anyone here got a similar system, either from 911co.uk or Porsche World or direct from the USA? If so, how did you get around the oil filter pipe catching the sport cat and what is the verdict?

Thanks, Neil
