guys: i need some education here. the early returns suggest that the 360CS isn't entirely measuring up to FSpA's reports of weight, performance, and the like. aesthetic issues aside, i'm questioning whether it'd be wiser to buy, say, a fully-sorted, pre-owned 1999 or 2000 360 coupe with miles (20K to 30K) and make some mods to reduce weight and increase performance on it. it seems that the CS isn't the huge improvement on the Modena that was originally expected. this path would save a ton of money. higher mileage cars seem to be going for much shorter money, and if you can get 'em fully sorted/serviced and invest a few dozen $K you're still well under CS MSRP, never mind the aftermarket markups if you're not waiting for your delivery already. i've long been considering buying an early 993 C2 and modifying the crap out of it to turn it into a street-track hybrid. total outlay wouldn't be that big. clearly it'd be a bigger outlay for a 360 than a 993. aside from the obvious issues of time investment and resale, which are rational concerns, why wouldn't i want to do this rather than buy a CS? yeah, the CF brakes are major bucks for an upgrade project, but it's also not clear yet that they're maybe not worth the hassle (cf. GT2 problems, Enzo problems, etc.) for a non-100% track car. curious, doody.
