    I used to own 2 Porsche,s before I had children and one day my neighbour said to me why do you have 2 Porsche,s............I replied because I can and one day I will not be able. Since children I,ve only been able to have 1 Porsche (More bikes though).

    No brainer really.............if you want one , then buy one while you can , otherwise you will regret it. I,ve also got a black SP4 , also very nice. Not sure they came from the factory that colour as I,ve never seen another one.

    What's that tacho you got in that SP4? Is it electronic?

    I built my own SP3 Réplica around a 996 ST4S engine updated to (almost, no Ti con-rods) 996 SPS. You have the process here:



    And it's a superb street bike. Not the best by any standard but as easy as a 130 HP desmodue might be.
    And, by the way, you can solve the mechanical tacho issue as I did. It's not the real thing but I'm proud of It as it's my creature... and a personal achievement!!!
