Engine aside it costs just as much to restore a 998 as an S.. And it is *very* nice.. Not all minispares and newton

Sorry, not exactly Mk1 and neither an auction, just another classic car dealer who's lost his marbles

Two or more buyers wanted it quite badly. It's expensive but absolutely lovely.

That red 1071 S is as rough as a bears arse and needs complete restoration. Give me 10 minutes and a big screwdriver and we'll see how solid it is. :lol:
