Wow... Beautiful car. Love that color! And the side skirts and Carrera rear spoiler really make the car unique. Be thankful, that rear spoiler is very expensive and is the one I linked to on Suncoast Porsche's website. But as mentioned before, the aero requirements are not the same as the GT3 Aero kit II. Porsche strongly recommends you at least get the matching GT3 rear wing if you install the aero GT3 front bumper... or vice versa. Happy motoring! Perfect car for the NC mountains!
You're not being contentious at all. This is what forums are about. Love to see your rear wing. Are you talking about the "Carrera Rear Spoiler" that is cross capable to the Coupe? Here a link for ref. - Suncoast Porsche Parts & Accessories Carrera Rear Spoiler WWW.SUNCOASTPARTS.COM The "carrera rear spoiler" doesn't require the aero front bumper... At least by Porsche standards. But The OP is referring to the GT3 aero kit II rear wing. The GT3 front aero bumper and rear wing should be installed at the same time. Of course, the side skirt have little effect, but do make the car look complete IMHO. But it's important to mention again that the GT3 aero rear wing is not compatible with Cabriolets. The clam shell won't be able to open.
As a previous cab owner myself, the Porsche OEM GT3 rear wing will not work on cabriolets because the cam shell will hit the wing while trying to open the convertible top. Loren is also right, Porsche strongly recommends matching the correct GT3 rear wing with the front GT3 aero front bumper. Downforce is balanced across the entire car. An imbalance at high speed could be very dangerous.
b3freak replied to Fixxxer's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)That's a super cool offer! How does it clamp down to the locking mechanism? Does it just sit on top or are there some kind of clips?
b3freak replied to Fixxxer's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Very nice design. How much would say it costs to produce this piece?
This guy is selling a bunch that look to be in good shape. He has it listed as a "Carrera" rock molding, but I crossed referenced the part number and Porsche said it was for the wide body 996 cars -i.e. Turbo and C4S. https://www.ebay.com/itm/PORSCHE-CARRERA-911-ROCKER-MOLDING-RIGHT-2001-2002-2003-2004-2005-996-504-364-00/223145709750?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D1da97e065a7141f29b5d917a610cd53c%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D323592899459%26itm%3D223145709750&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A64ce2915-ff02-11e8-9e15-74dbd180a887|parentrq%3Aa8c3692a1670ab4527d95a22fff667c1|iid%3A1
Well, it definitely looks busted up. The C4S/Turbo side skirts are terribly expensive. You might find replacing it would be the best course of action. I can confirm that my factory side skirt did not have the gap that is highlighting in your picture.
I've installed the GT3 side skirts on my last 996 and normally the wheel well covers the side skirts. Those three holes is where a rubber air dam should mount. Is that what you're talking about?
b3freak replied to Sucram's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Nothing like a black 911! And, those headlights are the perfect shape too! ha!
Please report back once you get the car back from Flat 6. We expect lots of photos, GoPro video, and nice narration with music underneath. 😂
b3freak replied to Joao Completo's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hands down... the Porsche Carrera "C2" RWD. Then budget to have the RMS, IMS, Clutch, and AOS taken care of. Cheers!
b3freak replied to KK911C4's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Great! Enjoy your Christmas holidays with that nice 996!
Yep! Water on a duck's back!
Good advice! Yea, the instruction manual is written very well and with the video, it should minimize the common mistakes that are made when carrying a project of this complexity. What I really appreciate is Jake's willingness to discuss in great detail the steps of pre-qualification and it's so important. Can't tell you how many threads I've read where shops installed a new IMS bearing on a car that had preexisting metal contamination which eventually took out the newer bearing. Ouch.
