Has it been having some serious work done for 6 years? smile a long time to be off the road. Not sure I could own a car like that and not be able to drive it in nice weather frown
It had fumes coming into the cabin, and the heat exchangers were holed. I was paranoid about studs snapping, and it all becoming a bit of a nightmare, so put it under a cover in the garage. Job change, relocation, and all sorts of other things got in the way and it just sat under the cover (albeit by now in a different garage). Lockdown gave me some time to look at it, gathered the parts, and chipped away at it. 3 snapped studs, but drilled them out just the stomski jig, replacement exhaust, mini wheel refurb, and a few other things, and got it recommissioned. After all that time, not even an advisory on the MOT smile
Great stuff! Some other photos would be good. thumbup

First clean of the year, including under the frunk, spoiler and inner door sills. Before anyone says anything, I absolutely don’t drive around or park with the spoiler up, but IMHO If ever a 911 needed a fixed ducktail.....

I really don't like silver GT cars, I don't like 991/2 RSs and I think gold wheels are naff beyond compare.

But my goodness that looks utterly stunning! What a machine!

Passed its MOT today with no advisories. Been off the road since early 2014 - great to behind the wheel again.
Absolute subtlety beer

The new generation 911s and the extravaganza amount of ornaments on their styling makes me dizzy though...

The condition of that looks a rare find, take care of it. Service either once a year or 10k miles, don't leave it 4 years if you only do 2k miles a year. Don't forget coolant (5 years) and brake fluid (2years) either. Fresh fluids prevent rust as well as keeping it driving as it should. Keep on top of the little bits like drop links (they need doing on every Boxster/Cayman :-p), clear the radiators of leaves/crap regularly and a Porsche that looks that clean will look after you for as long as you wish to be custodian:-) enjoy.

P.s. Black on black with those seats is exactly how I'd have mine.

I know what RWB is, but what part is RWB on Mike's white 964?
A sticker. His 350k kms car is a nod to the Japanese master and chain smoker.
