Just a quick update - this month my car appears in 911 and Porsche World Magazine. (Purple Haze front cover)



Author (cmoose) preferred the C2 overall but it is a good and fair write up and plays to the strengths of the car. Think he was impressed by the condition of mine.

Apart from that I have got it booked in to retro fit cruise control and then it is just a case of getting it booked in for a bit of paint around the front. After that it is near enough perfect and certainly wants for nothing.

Only a few 996 C4S at Ragley Hall Concours events. One stood out - a black one with private plate. Some very ropey 996s out there - even at events like that. Was good to see a 996 being judged though (gorgeous C2).

It isn't getting out much now due to me having a little side project bringing an ultra low mileage Mark 5 Golf GTI up to scratch/showroom condition. Parts are much cheaper! Keeping it totally stock except Sat Nav/ Carplay. Bought from a Porsche enthusiast as well.

Well, according to an earlier post if you drive a C4S for more than a few miles the engine falls to bits!!

PS I was there Thumb

That is true. I now have a team of engineers with a van load of spare engines follow me everywhere just in case. My trip to Stuttgart for example, that took a great deal of planning and I had engines shipped ahead in strategic places - Ghent, Frankfurt and then Stuttgart.

Us Porsche drivers must be careful.

really nice car, and I'm a bit late to this thread. Do you have some more details about the audio upgrade? I have got the standard 6 speaker non-Bose set up. Replaced the dash-top speakers already but not the door or rears. Running an Alpine IVA-W505 and not sure if this is running through the standard amp or not.

+1 I would also be interested in this, I have the six-speaker layout with the factory/Nokia amp and a Becker head-unit.

Sorry Lofi - missed this.

Hertz speakers were second hand from a member on here. Cross overs for the front, amp behind the frunk and Alpine in the back. I want to add a small sub at some point. When/If the Tesla turns up I will replace the head unit with the Pioneer 203 DAB I have just put in my Golf resto project.

Any questions please ask.

While I'm here a bit of an update.

I am thinking of selling up in the UK so the car may need to go in 2019/20.

Going to finish the project - paintwork around front needs sorting - but if someone came in with the right number then I think I would let it go.

Thanks - I'm most interested in what you swapped the door speakers for as the originals seem to have an odd impedance, though I guess if the amp is changed along with them it doesn't matter so much. Would be great to know the model of door speakers you went for as I think these are key for a good sound if like me there is no rear sub.

I must admit, I think cmoose was right Grin

This C4S is easily the best one I've ever seen. A buyer would struggle to do better.

Thanks fella

Re the Hertz speakers. I have just spent 20 mins going through my pics and I can't find the damn photo I took of the model numbers. Very sorry. I bought the set from Mazza in June 2016 so he may know!
