Ti22 | The 'Bad Boys' Porsche | 3.6 964 Turbo

Whilst working in central london recently, I had the pleasure of working on this stunner. On my personal 'lottery win' cars to buy list, it was a total pleasure to enhance it!

If anyone knows exactly what model the bad boys car was, I'd be very interested to know! This is one of the last 3.6's (a lot rarer and faster than the 3.3!) and also with a few tweeks. Only 38K miles as well!

Washed and ready for a good look with the sun gun:



General inspection after the normal wash process..











The usual for a car of this age then! Swirls and all sorts were spoiling the finish - this was only a 1 day enhancement - with most areas receiving a 3 stage polish, after claying and detarring.

front wing 50/50:







rear wing 50/50



rear wing finished:





General after shots of the car:





























A bit of an 'artistic' final shot!



Thanks for looking.. Wax was Swissvax best of Show..

James.

Loving the work and the porcshe. I always find it funny the amount of lock-ups in london filled with sports cars.

Thanks Mark.

Thats my old car!!! I sold it around 3-4 years ago and it was a fantastic machine. I should have kept it as i sold it for around 40k and they now go for north of 65k!! Glad it's being looked after. It's very rare now, there were only 48 ever built in right hand drive and i'd imagine a few have been written off! The new owner seems to have changed the wheels from the original speedlines that it comes with.

Thanks for the e-mail Alastair (replied to!) What an amazing coincidence, you're a lucky man to have been driving that around! You're correct about the value I think - widely touted as the next most appreciating 964 after the RS I think. Far better than money in the bank at the moment anyway!

P.S. the wheels were on it when the new current owner bought it, must have been added in the interim.
