    Nice posting Raj. The green with bold stripes is a nice added plus, great graphics, agree. Would be nice to replicate as 1/32 slot car even! Keeping the enthusiasm solid…

    Cheers, Thompson

    It fits here:

    Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG erwirbt Mehrheitsbeteiligung an Manthey-Racing

    Premium-Sportwagen-Hersteller übernimmt 51 Prozent der Anteile am Erfolgsrennstall

    Means, Porsche take 51% of Manthey Racing!

    In 2014 a Carrera Cup car (original) will be starting at the 24hours race at the Nürburgring with dirvers from the 90is.

    Great ...

    I was the one asking why the RS Cups continued to use the C2 rear bumper rather than the RS.

    Also, several have stated, including Porsche, that the RS Cups were running 18" Speedlines. That may have been true for the German series but in both the French and Japanese series the cars were on 17" Cup 1's. Anyone?

    These are the kind of questions that keep some of us coming back. VERY few people care, YET. Reminds me of the 80's when we were looking for answers to our 73 RS questions and there was so much really bad information out there. And no internet.

    This is exactly what I am talking about, Raj. What you have posted is different from what I am finding. It has always been my understanding that magnesium wheels were never used on a 964 Cup Car. Mg. was not thought durable enough. Same thinking with the use of steel doors rather than aluminum. Interesting that aluminum was somehow OK on the RS N-GT. If I am mistaken, please tell me.

    The 18" Speedlines were the big news in 1992, not 1993. And yet Porsche shows Cup 1's in their 1992 Christophorus article introducing the Speedlines! Nothing new here. On a similar note, we had been led to believe, until recently, that Euro Cups could not/had not been registered for the road.

    And so it goes.....

    The road cars (RS) used Mg wheels the cups ran the same Al wheels as US car 8 x 17 & 9.5 x 17 until the switch was made to the speedlines. I don't think AL doors were used until 993 RS and cups and the 4WD light weights.

    So maybe I got the wheel thing wrong-
    Wheels/Tires
    • 1990-1991 8x17" front and 9.5x17" rear one-piece cast magnesium Cup wheels,
    saving 11kgs;
    • 1992 onwards 8x18" front and 9.5x18" rear three-piece "Speedline for Porsche"
    wheels. The size was changed due to ready availability of Pirelli 18” slicks in the
    German DTM series and the ability to replace only parts of the Speedline wheels

    So I also found this reference:
    The original Cup cars had wheels of 8×17 and 9.5×17, with an offset of 52mm and 68mm respectively. They also had 21mm spacers at the rear (giving an effective offset of 47mm. I also think post above is wrong as Mg wheels were 7.5 & 9

    Phil,
    What source are you referencing? You could ask me the same question regarding door material (I'm looking )
    Christophorus could be wrong but I tend to give them the benefit of the doubt.
