They are very different cars

Very nice Karl!

If you still have the stock suspension, you may want to consider upgrading to Ohlins R&T. They are inexpensive and provide a significant improvement (handling & ride quality) IMHO.

Nice car, Karl.

By the way, I think there is a character limit for sold cars in signature lines. You're likely getting close.

Thanks, the suspension is one of my favorite parts on this car. It has progressive springs, similar to a 996 GT3 RS. Very stiff but compliant enough to not completely beat you up on the street.

Thanks for your concern but I donít consider 35 Porscheís in the last 42 years excessive

Iím a slow learner.

The answer to your next question is, yes we are shopping for another
