    I run the same 93 octane. Then sometimes I go to Buccess here in Texas and I run 92 ethanol free. But I can also for $9 a gallon buy Sunoco 104 race fuel, to do the Italian clean up on the intake system.

    Of course! Shell V Power is all I run in it.

    If I win it will I get It detailed and with a full tank of gas. Made the drive from Lexington KY to Houston many times, going thru Atlanta. On a vr6 corrado, a tr5 Volvo, 745i and a HPA twin turbo R32 ( the funnest one yet). Drift experience at xxx mph at 5:00 am in the morning. Not to shabby when you have 650 at the wheels, Koenig seats and aristo wheels.

    @bselde The incorrect bid has been retracted. You may now bid the correct amount.

  • jfulku (seller) 1 monthago

    Thanks for the bids Guys!

  • TexCoast (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @bselde Actually 44.5 wouldn't be legit anyways. They'll need to nix your bid altogether just to open the table back up.

  • TexCoast (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @bselde so your heart skip a beat for a second?
    I know mine did. :)

    Hope they fix that for ya. Lol

    We have lift off! Thanks for breaking the ice. Unfortunately I will not be in town until Monday. I do live in Atlanta though.

  • mwsumner (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Are you in Statesboro? We are interested but would like to see it first and we are in metro Atlanta.

    @burnrubr I do not recall off hand regarding the hp. Flat 6 did show me a Dyno report though. If I can find it I’ll be happy to post it.

  • jfulku (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @ez1973 Nice! I agree wholeheartedly. The mid range is where you really notice the difference IMO. I’ve never driven a Turbo but since I live in Atlanta the Porsche Driving Experience is literally 10 miles down 75 and I want to try out a Turbo. Thanks for the good word!

  • burnrubr (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    What's the current HP rating now?

  • ez1973 (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    I’ll be following this auction as well. I was lucky enough to find the “cousin” to this car last year - a 2007 C4S cab, same color, with a 4.0 rebuild. With a few bolt ons the performance and driving experience are amazing! Plenty of mid range grunt, screams up top, and the glorious NA flat 6 sounds are unmatched! I absolutely love my set up and actually prefer it to my friends turbo of the same generation - he does too!! Anyway, someone lucky is gonna get an incredible machine - GLWTA!!!

  • jfulku (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @8KaboveMSL Thanks! We’ll see how she does. Fall is around the corner and I’m sure I’m not the only one out there that likes to drive fast with the top down.

  • 8KaboveMSL 1 month, 1 weekago

    GLWTA. Will be watching this one for sure. Curious how the community reacts to a 4.0L engine in a 997.1. You don’t see these for sale very often. . .

  • jfulku (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @keva58 I had a friend in TN that turned me on to the Flat 6 Innovations Shop and decided that was the way to go after seeing his car. The difference was noticeable immediately when I got it back. Was an investment for sure but worth it I think.

  • keva58 1 month, 1 weekago

    Beautiful car. What happened (if anything) that caused you to rebuild the engine?

  • jfulku (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Hello to my fellow Porsche enthusiasts! Please throw any questions you may have at me. I truly love this car and do not enjoy seeing it up for sale. That said, I also do not enjoy seeing it sit in the garage. It needs to be driven. It's my third Porsche that I've owned and by far the best one. There are few like it. The car is certainly very nice but the engine is simply outstanding. The 4.0 rips and having no thoughts about an IMS bearing or bore scoring issue makes for very enjoyable drives. Thank you for your interest and good bidding!
