Yes I've seen Tims car several times and it's a beauty eek His attention to detail with the engine is astounding and he's been involved with engine building for decades so I'm sure it drives like nothing else in the UK. Blade7 has all the bits to build a mega engine for his own cool car but to date I don't believe he's started

Those wheels just look wrong on a 944, but easily fixed.

Trouble is £40k buys alot of other cars and a standard 944 turbo or 968 ClubSport would be great drives and better ways to spend some of that money.

I like the styling of the 968CS, but wouldn't fancy the prospect of not being able to shake off every yoof in a £7K Fiesta ST, in my £40k Porsche.

If it must to a Porsche then my £40k choice list would be (in no particular order):

- 996 turbo
- 997 C2S
- 987 Cayman R
- 987 Spyder

All would be preferable to a modified 944 however well it was done. No offence to the seller as I do love the 944 S2 but a 944 turbo would be on the list for less if I wanted a faster 944.

Sometimes it's not all about speed, more a case of how it drives and looks.

If it's not all about speed there's not much point in buying a 996 turbo. I was thinking about one a few years ago, until I went in one. There wasn't much sensation of speed until it was going really, really fast. Probably because there was no sudden arrival of boost, just a continuous increase in mph.

My greatest problem with the 996 Turbo was the brakes ...

A heavy fast car ... I had a tractor pull out in front of me and I can still feel the pedal softening into a stop inches away from a very solid surface ...

Value and usage ? 996.2GT3 ? 997.1GT3 ? with 60k ish to drive ... and a very good service history which you will maintain ... for well below your budget.

Or you could buy two collectables and share the mileage ? Within your budget ... and they may be an investment .. ??
