This car is more fun on a twisty road than my 996 Turbo, so 10.

Did you sell this car already? Would you know if it would pass smog in California? Any upgrades with the cooling system? I see you haven't added the center front radiator.

The car is still for sale, it has passed WI emission testing every time. Visually everything looks stock since it has a Cayman S exhaust system on it (headers, cats, pipes, muffler). So it should easily pass a visual inspection, but I am not familiar with California testing standards.

It does have the stock cooling system but it has never shown any signs of a cooling issue even on the hottest summer days.
