    Fox Body Prices on BaT

    Pretty wild stuff. I am starting to regret selling my '87 notch a few months back!! I almost doubled my money in 2 years but the cost of re-entry is crazy. Foxbodies are cool, but for the driving experience and that level of investment... I'm out haha

    I have no idea what is going to happen with these prices, but I do know that I refuse to sell any of my desirable sports cars for the foreseeable future. The EV push is going to make them all extremely sought after IMO. If you've got a car (or cars) you love, pay them off and keep em!

    I hope he still has it!! Rare to find those cars with RUF mods on them these days. Definitely get one when you’re ready!!

    It’s actually a very popular conversion. The obvious reasons are that it saves weight, has way better steering feel, turn in response and so on, make's the car more direct/crisp but obviously a bit more dangerous. This is where the older 930 turbos and GT2 cars got their nickname “widow...

    Thank you sir! For turbos it is running the GT3076 Alpha kit w/ XONA billet upgrade I appreciate that!! It’s funny, I originally set out to find a red or yellow car. I didn’t really think about white too much because it’s one of the rarest colors to find. I am obsessed! Thank you, and...

    The turbo S is a great choice, and you're right that the GTS is hard to come by. I get the rarity/price factor but you can get a lot more car for the money (like you did!) It seems like everyone with a desirable 911 refuses to let them go below top dollar. I look forward to seeing your new ride!

    I agree with this statement, especially for the more analog generations with the Mezger engine. They will only become more desirable

    I've checked off a few bucket lists in my day but this one feels different. Join the club!! Thanks man I nearly fell over when I saw the price tag on these brembos. Appreciate the compliment, it is rare to find a car setup nearly exactly how you would have done it (especially when I know I...

    That's awesome! Looks like your dad has some good taste and enjoys his cars! Appreciate that! MRSP on this was $151k back in '02. I am not sure if I have seen any higher than that to be honest - porsche options really add up.

    Thank you! That sounds like an amazing trip. Bucket list for sure. You're not kidding. I only got into boost a handful of times and was shocked by the speedometer. I've driven some fast cars in my day but this one feels a bit different. They call the 996 GT2 the last "widow maker" Porsche so I...

    Fairly common for these to put down anywhere from 550 - 650 whp on pump fuel with upgraded turbos and proper fuel mods. This one should be on the mid/upper end of that spectrum given the turbo/injector setup (GT3076 Alpha kit with ID1000s), but I do not have a dyno sheet. Will be tuning remotely...

    We've been talking about that actually, would make for a good youtube video too!

    Appreciate the feedback everyone! Don't think so! The car was tucked away late November so I must have a lookalike I feel more and more drawn to Porsches, which seems to be surprisingly common when you talk to other owners. The camshaft issue only plagues the 997.1 cars, but the coolant pipes...

    SVTP - long time no see. It's been a while since I have been on this site (mainly because it was temporarily blocked on my work computer), but I am back! Some of you may have seen my black notchback sell a couple months ago before my disappearance, so I figure it is time to introduce my...
