Lip stick on a pig?

Thoughts?

Seems like a bargain to me. :D

This guy took the time to color match his shovel and his exhaust tips. :lol:

looks like a fun toy.. although $40k is a pipe dream.

a different accent color than white would go a long way.

More like, Why? Are you really going to rally this thing? If you're not, are you really going to be seen dead on the street in it?

I'd assume a car approved for rally racing would need a lot of other safety upgrades, like a fuel pump shut off, etc.

Bro, I've invested over 6 figures. Buyer's gain, my loss.

The idea of rally racing in a 996 definitely stirs the soul, however, I'd probably crash an AWD Subie going not-too quickly... I'd definitely crash this girl. Otherwise she doesn't have the lift for serious off-roading. A very nicely equipped Outback, or a normally equipped Taco / 4 Runner could be had for the same money, brand new.

There's a lot of use for a car like this where I live. West desert, San Rafael Swell, Canyonlands, Ibex's playa, White Rocks, City of Rocks, I could go on. All doable in a year using weekends.

Is this the first water-cooled 911 safari?
