We teamed up with carphile.co.uk to bring you this video which discusses what we look for when buying a Porsche 996 (911), giving hints and tips about what you should look for when buying one of these cars.

We were commissioned to re-build the engine, fit a front oil-cooler and re-wire the car to run on the later engine whilst maintaining the original instrument clocks and dash controls. We also modified and setup the suspension to improve handling and aesthetics. A challenging but fun project. Needless to say that both the client [...]
