Plate surely not included for that price?

ETA just seen it's S11, not 911

It's not the Hartech one, it was a cheaper on but has also had an engine rebuild, but no idea where or how well it was done, so a bit of a risk. It's tatty, the headlights being the obvious thing externally, plus a mark on the rear bumper. The front seats are pretty fucked and the steering wheel needs throwing in a biohazard skip.

Plan A is tidy it up a bit and use it. Plan B (if the engine is shagged or subsequently explodes) is to throw an LS in it. Plan C would be to part it out.

Plate isn't as cool as it looks. It's not 911 CPO, it's S11 CPO with a dodgy screw ;)

Emergency start vid please.

Worst case scenario, it dumps it's guts and you've an excuse to find an LS to replace it with as it'd be a better value replacement than a flat six.

I got it for £8008. I put that as my maximum bid because it spells BOOB.

Nice one 💪

That 3 spoke wheel is an option and much nicer than the normal one. If it's minging you can get them redone in Alan Cantara along with the gearknob and gaitor.

Royal Steering Wheels 👍

Nice 😎

Coincidentally I was reading the Readers cars thread on pistonheads about the turbo LS swap in the C4 👌
