That is lovely and only 15mins up the road, but if I was spending £15k on one I would find the extra and get a Sebring

You'd be unlucky to get a speeding ticket in a Midget as well. Unless you put a K Series in one, now that would be entertaining biggrin

This car can be used for both racing and rallying, and as such will be prepared for the new owner.
I am told it is the first 996 to be converted to a rally car in the UK so the car has had a lot of Press interest with a 3 page feature in both Porsche Excellence magazine December 2018 and GT Porsche Magazine in 2019. the only changes to the car since the press article is a change of number plate and Martini stripes added, which can both be changed
The car will be available to view at Porsches on the Prom in LLandudno this Sunday
Serious offer considered




The ad does include his phone number so if you google the above I'm sure you'll find it, not keen on posting someone's number without their knowledge

Just picked up my car from MB World, Historics have an auction tomorrow so I had a nose and some of the lots. Some nice stuff going through mixed with some proper money pits. I'll post up some links later, if anyone wants an XJS there's a bucket load going through!

It’s the first thing that springs to mind for me when a Q-car is ever mentioned. 5-dr, narrow-body, single-lamp Mk2, hand-built by the Motorsport division. Was also the most powerful Golf produced until the Mk4 R32 appeared many years later

I think I may have been offered one at some point. I didn't realise how rare they are.
