Insanity sets in?

By scarsgo

Filed under: 1986 Merkur XR4Ti (The X-Wing)

OK, so the Porsche 928 S4 is for sale... although it WOULDN'T be for sale if it didn't have an automatic. I'm weird, but I'd rather PUSH a five or six speed car than drive an automatic... slushboxes make me cry. ;-)

ANYHOW.... the XR4ti has the worst auto-box known to man. The Ford T3. My Pinarello road bicycle has I higher top speed. heh

My insanity begins with me pondering a redo on the old XR4ti. Something fast, something with a manual transmission, something along the lines of a Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500. Or perhaps I could just sell it and import a Cossie and save myself the trouble.

... then there was the thought of building a monster 944 turbo.

Argh. Decisions :-)

If I were you, I would sell my Porsche, and buy with the money an RS500.
True, these are very expensive, but worth it.
