Re: RE: Register roll call 2017/10/16 17:35:20 (permalink)
Hi, I thought my post had registered and if it did my apologies for the repeat. Anyway,
have mentioned before that in New Zealand I have a NZ new, am second owner, 1992 Grand Prix White Tiptronic. It has covered 307,000 kms, on the original motor! I did have a stuck inlet valve ? I am no mechanic, and that problem was solved by sealing the other 3 pots? to remove and replace the stuck one. So the head did not have to come off! Does this make sense to anybody. I've only mentioned it as a matter of interest. I have owned the car for coming up to 14 years now and cannot wait to drive it again as I have been touring Britain and Europe for the last 16 months. Leave for NZ tomorrow. I have posted other stuff on this site, re tyres, new trans and track speed, and thank you to the guys putting me onto 968 engine reconditioning specialists as I may need one sooner rather than later with the mileage I have covered!

Welcome Ian, from another 93 cab owner! roughly where in UK are you, I'm near Ashford Kent, know of 2 other cabs close by and a third in North Kent. Have you found the porsche968uk forum? It's a very useful source of info for 968 owners.

Would love to see photos of the light grey interior to compare to my full leather cobalt blue with sports seats (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B3FX3V_kb7JvZDk1MmE4OWMtY2RhNy00Njc1LWEzNWEtNDJmZGQ0ZmI3OGZh?usp=sharing). Out of interest, do you have a CoA giving build completion date, as although mine was not registered until mid 1993, build completion was Aug 92, I have no explanation from Porsche for the wait except that there was a recession in UK. I believe mine was in Porsche Guildford for some or all of the unexplained time.
 
Where (roughly) in UK are you, a photo of 2 Tahoe tip cabs side by side would be a very rare animal!! I'm in East Kent between Ashford and Tenterden.

Re: Register roll call 2018/02/20 21:16:24 (permalink)
Hello Chris, many thanks for your reply.  Mine was manufactured in about August 1992 and registered in February 1993.  I have no idea where it was in between!  I have attempted to upload a couple of pix of the inside on here, but failed.  It would be lovely to have a picture with the two on, but mine is currently SORN'd and I've got to put it back on the road for the summer (nothing wrong, just winterised).  I'll let you know when she's back on the road.  Like you, I didn't think another Tahoe Blue one existed any more!  I did the laps of honour in 2007 at Silverstone where there were 66 968's so I imagine you might have been there on that day too.  Lovely cars, much under-rated, and pretty with it too!

As you're a PCGB member, get a CoA from PCGB (application form available to download on the main website), that will give you the build completion date and original options - useful, but takes a while to arrive after you apply (but at least it's free, for PCGB members!). I don't SORN mine just in case herself is away in the shopping trolley and something happens - but she's been tucked up in her garage since mid December!

Tin roof and all round vision rather than canvas roof and rear 1/4 blind spots makes a difference Martin! Our coupe was, for the first few years, our main car and was used year round, but the cab is more a fine weather car - although has been known to get wet and cold occasionally!
