Due to work commitments, i didn’t get to visit the bodyshop the past weekend to look at our car’s progress. But i guess in a way, it’s nice to have a bit of a break too perhaps?
While we might have missed out on seeing our car’s build, i did manage to take a look at something else that’s just as, if not more interesting. A beautiful (and rather elusive) single owner 944 Turbo, right here on our sunny island.
In the spirit of Mike and Ed from Wheeler dealers, i arranged to meet up with the owner to have a look at his car and maybe gather some images for reference on my rebuild.
My engine bay looks nothing like that.
This is a beautiful car passed on to the current owner by his father who personally drove it off the shipping container when it first arrived in Singapore.
After a short chat, we both sort of gathered that there are probably only a handful of 944 Turbos left running locally. 4 Coupes, 2 Cabriolets. I’m pretty sure the number of NA 944s are just as dismal.
Thanks to the owner, i managed to get a ride in the car too. Just to get a rough feel for when our car is done. His is properly sorted.
I think if we can get our car to be half as nice as this, i’ll be rather happy.
Here’s his other car. Good taste .
