in all the years looking at 96spec examples, they all look tired

but my taste has changed..if there's a clean 95/96 even with inferior specs to the later models and more dated bumper/wheels/steering wheel, there's something pure about them

lightest, heads ported by hand, first attainable type R ever made

This vid almost needs it's own thread.

At the time, locally at least these cars were never a thing. It was all swapped eg, ef, or even gsr, itr. Everyone I know that had a new Sir, their parents paid for it.

Removed sound deadening and rear wiper. I guess they planned to do this all along.

It would have been cool if they had optional stereo and AC delete.

I think the euro version had those no charge delete options.

I think everyone jacked up their asking prices ever since they sold that Barrett Jackson one for $165K.

There is a new LE at a dealer in Massachusetts for $20k USD over msrp

Can Canadian dealers charge over msrp?

Just do what Porsche Centre does - drive it round the block and then sell it as certified pre-owned for 100k over MSRP.
