About “Silver Bullet”

Pocket Rocket......

About “Der Auto”

My love is American Muscle cars....the real ones from the 60s and early 70s. I do have a dark passion for European sports cars, but they are mostly unattainable....except for this beauty I recently found online. There is nothing more exciting than banging through 6 gears forcing the car forward with seemingly endless torque. The Carrera is not the fastest model Porsche makes, but it is not so incredibly behind the Turbo to be labelled as "slow". The handling from the factory is completely off the meter and the car is very comfortable and fun to drive, even around town.

Mods for “Der Auto”

Factory exhaust was updated with Fabspeed mufflers and stainless tips.

The original airbox was replaced with a high-flow box featuring a K&N filter.

The suspension benefits from the addition of H&R springs which bring the ride height down and an inch both front and back and further stiffens the ride. An aftermarket strut brace increases the rigidity of the front end.

Pirelli PZeros provide unbelieveable traction on all four corners...and look good doing it.
