We all know IMs are great, even the early ones. As some of my compadres have said above, Convertible D’s are definitely drier inside than Speedsters but that’s the nature of the beast, even in the real Porsches.
And after reading David’s comments I believe he’s on the right track. I am glad fellow forum members saved him from being another SAS victim. Many years ago, an ex member here called Steve who was an airline pilot by trade, and whom I met in person once, had a nice ivory SAS and loved it but regretfully it was totaled in an accident and he retired from the hobby. Hoss (Mr. Hallstrand), who I also met in person is the other guy who had his red one and was very happy with it. I wish Mr. Lawing would streamline his manufacturing process and improve his client satisfaction index because the cars he cranked out, when he did, were very very nice. Quite a large number of manufacturers (if not all of them) have jumped on the Subaru powertrain bandwagon since then. Maybe this will make it more possible for David to find his dream car that way.
