Woah! That's a LOT of CF! I don't ever think I've seen A pillars in CF before. Amazing.

Find some intensely twisty roads and you'l fall in love with the car even more, and it will fix that "I wish it was faster off the line" for you. That's where the car really shines.

Welcome to the forum!

CFs made by my friends. Oh and I don't wish it to be faster, I knew what it was when I bought it and thats why I bought it. Now I have a fast freeway/race car and an awesome twisty turny car =P My bases are covered hahaha

Hey Dave, nice to see another Seattle area person! Yeah, Wednesday was cookin. Gotta admit it was ALMOST too hot to go top down, especially sitting in traffic on I-5 but I put the A/C on and enjoyed it because it might not last.

TriGem2k has it correct.

@TriGem2k nice ride I see some similarities between the two, I also have a sort shifter, exhaust, H&R springs, skirts (although mine are the optional ones from Porsche) and I believe you're rear end and tails are from the 04+ gen? I'm just going off what my friend told me about mine when I took it off his hands. Still new to the Porsche game.. most of my knowledge is in Japanese imports.
