Michael, I take your comment as a +
? I concur that such setup (tuning) is quite OTT, but then either I am such an individual or I am at the point of my life where "things" are not holding up well ?
The exact reasons aside, upon self analysis, I must conclude that I am going a bit banana lately.
Back to the topic on Novitec, just started to dip my finger, finding out more informations. Not that it is of any similar situations, years back when I was going through Porsche indoctrination of normal 964, 993, then 3.6 Turbo, TT ...I came across RUF. Did not know anyone who owned one and had no informations, but was interested. Things I heard were rumors and unsubstantiated comments. I still recall one comment that implied maintenance issues and requiring more than frequent tuning and so forth. Fast forward, I came across my current white RUF, went and saw it, price was a bit on high side relative to other Porsches, but something inside me liked the car. It was far from outstanding condition at the time of purchase. Issues were addressed and at the moment she runs beautifully. Compared to normal 993 TT, RUF has a different personality, shall I say...very wild ? Clutch is extremely light and sensitive, not exactly a relaxing drive, but quite exhilarating and blindingly fast.
It may be that this Novitec Scud version may have the same story to that. When I called the shop, I was expecting him to quote a higher price relative to normal Scud, but surprisingly it was not.
I sure cannot explain or reason as to why I am looking at this tuned Scud, let alone a Scud. Maybe it is a reflection of my unstable frame of mind. :steering wheel:
Thanx for your comment. Much appreciated.
