If you’re looking for a garage queen please keep looking – if you’re looking for a Porsche that’s been driven the way the good Germans intended, maintained meticulously, and, modified for safety, reliability, and speed - then this might be the car for you. Comfortable enough to drive to Georgia (Roebling Road), Virginia (VIR), Minnesota (Brainerd International) or just Ohio (Mid-Ohio) or Michigan (Grattan, Waterford Hills, Gingerman)– but track oriented enough to run with GT3s, M3s, Corvettes and the like once you get there. Technically this car is a “Turbo S Clone”… read on:
