Attention to Details is A1.
Photos only tell part of the story.
Inspection will not disappoint.
This is a 911SC Targa, converted to a 930S Cabriolet with over $100,000 and 3000 Labour hours spent on the rotisserie restoration in 1995.
Built by an engineer and club captain of the Porsche Club NSW. This car is well known for its presence at Porsche events and the Sydney International Motor Show.
What we have here is a car that Porsche would have released in 1995. The last of the G-series, the smoothness of a 964, the exclusivity of a 935 Slantnose and a topless roof.
Started life as a 1977 911SC Targa it was then stripped down to its shell.
The body was mounted on a rotisserie and taken back to bare metal. The slant nose was fitted using all steel guards, the flutes filled in. The rear fins allow for extra cooling and styling.
Converting a Targa to Cabriolet is a common and simple conversion as there are no body modifications needed. The bodywork and paintwork was completed by Ron Goodman and his attention to detail is A1. A special metallic pearl blue has been carefully applied to the body, undercarriage and suspension.
The interior was completed by Autocraft in Chatswood in soft Ferrari leather and carpet. The toolkit pouch remade to suit the interior and is gold plated.
The car has electric roof and windows and is air conditioned. It also has an immobiliser.
It has a fully rebuilt 3.0Lt engine, gearbox and diff courtesy of Bob Whyms Automotive. Whilst it was in stock for, it did have some mild headwork that can be noticed by sound and performance. The 5 speed gearbox feels new and tight. The undercarriage is as good as the bodywork with excellent attention to detail.
The brakes are a monster 6 Pot Caliper courtesy of 993 RSCS with 930 rotors and the rears are 930 Turbo. The upgraded suspension runs reinforced front struts with Koni adjustable shock absorbers, front and rear sway bars.
Tyres are 18 inch Ritform FUC from the USA.
The entire build including the conversion has been done using all original parts and comes with original Engineers Report.
Blue chip car… blue chip opportunity.
