1975 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

1975 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

In a recent post on the Carrera 3.0 I wondered a bit about the relative values of those 911s compared to their predecessor the Carrera 2.7 MFI. There are large differences in those values mostly due to the shared engine of the 2.7 liter and the very highly sought after 911 Carrera RS. Here we have the lesser sibling of those cars. The pedigree isn’t the same as this Carrera lacks that magical RS engine, but it shares similar looks and that lack of pedigree brings with it a substantially lower price. The one we have here is an attractive combination of Grand Prix White over Cinnamon and sits with fewer than 50K miles.

For sale is a 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera sunroof coupe. This is a numbers matching car per the Porsche COA. The mileage is 49,198. It is car #67 of 395. The car has had 3 owners and the current owner has had it for the last 9 years. The paint is the original Grand Prix white and the interior is the original cinnamon leatherette. The paint and body are in very nice condition. The interior is in excellent condition. The rims are the original 7 & 8 inch Fuchs with new tires all around. The brake calipers were recently rebuilt and work great. The engine runs strong and the trans shifts very smooth. This is a great running and handling car and could be driven anywhere. It was recently serviced and is ready to go. This is a very nice example of a very rare car for a discerning collector, investor or enthusiast.

Motorsports Monday: 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Supercup

Here we have a pretty rare opportunity. Of course, such opportunities come with a high cost, but I can’t imagine the market for a car like this ever really extends to us regular buyers anyway. You expect to pay a lot. This is one of only 40 Carrera Supercup 911s built in 1995 and reportedly is the only one that was sent to the U.S. From what I gather it hasn’t really seen any race time (or at least not within the Porsche Supercup series) as it was intended as a show/demonstration car for Bridgestone. Its graphics make that aspect pretty clear. It looks in wonderful condition and that it is eligible for vintage racing certainly is a nice bonus for the owner who’d like to experience a legit Porsche factory racer.

Originally purchased by the Bridgestone Corporation as a VIP car used to introduce and promote the new SO2 tire. It is one of only 40 Supercup cars built in ’95 and the only one sent to the US. Hurley Haywood and David Murry were the hired drivers for this car. Class winner at the Porsche Parade and Excellence Magazine cover car. I have just completed a light restoration to museum quality condition of how it appeared in 1995. The car has never been crashed and retains the original engine and gearbox. It retains proper Recaro seats, correct dash, instruments and interior panels as well as proper alloy front lid and original rear wing. A great addition to any collection and can be vintage raced. Please ring me with any questions. Thank you.

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Club Coupe

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Club Coupe

Earlier this week I featured one of Porsche’s classic 911 special editions. This time we’ll turn to one of the modern versions. I’m not sure if we’ve ever featured this edition so it makes for a nice treat. This is a 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Club Coupe, located in Ontario, with just 3,044 miles on it. The condition looks superb and with only 50 such produced it is one of the rarer editions out there. The seller definitely is trying to capitalize on that rarity with an asking price that strikes me as insane, but given that I can’t ever recall seeing one come up for sale I suppose some premium is warranted. Add in the very low miles and surely we have a valuable 911. But this valuable?

2004 Porsche 911 GT3 – No Reserve

2004 Porsche 911 GT3 – No Reserve

I’ve had my eye on the 996 GT3 of late and have featured a few as a way to get a sense of where the market currently lies for these fantastic cars. Many might look askance at the 996 in general, but there is little doubt that the GT3 is a special car and capable of providing thrilling motoring. The styling might still turn some buyers off – especially as prices inch closer to those of the 997 GT3 – but outside of the interior they really aren’t bad-looking 911s. They depart in some ways from the traditional design, but they’re no Pontiac Aztec either. We also don’t have to deal with the IMS concerns that provoke fear in buyers of other 996 models. But really, these are about the performance and, even better, the performance value. The one we see here differs from my previous features in that it’s Guards Red. The GT3 deserves a bright color and this has one. It’s also pretty low miles at 18,120 and on auction with no reserve.

The seller hasn’t provided much for us to judge the quality of this GT3 outside of the pictures, some of which have been lifted from a previous sale of the car in 2014. That should raise our investigative hackles to some degree, but given that its mileage has increased by an expected amount over those 2.5 years it may be nothing. Regardless, the typical caveats of a PPI and a perusal of its records will apply here.…

Carmine Red 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

Carmine Red 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

Been a lot of 930s lately. We discussed that fact in a previous post regarding declining 930 values. There are a lot of them on the market and due to that increase in supply prices have come down. It’s certainly not a bad thing for fans of the model! This particular 930 stands apart for a couple of reasons. First, the seller appears to have a pretty good knowledge of its history. That in itself sets this 930 apart as so many of them we see come with little available provenance. Second, it’s a subtly different shade of red in Carmine Red. I like subtle differences. They are the kind of thing that can really draw us in to appreciate the nuances that distinguish it from more standard colors, which in the case of the 930 would be Guards Red. Whether it is a better color than Guards Red will be in the eye of the beholder; it is certainly more rare.

Carmine Red with Black Leather Interior

Although the Porsche Turbo is now a natural fixture in the consciousness of car buffs because it is such an iconic car, it was genuinely earth-shattering when it emerged in the mid 1970s. After massive success pioneering the use of turbochargers during the first half of the 1970s in the 917 Can Am and 911-based sports cars, Porsche had the knowhow to bring a reliable and capable turbocharged road car to market. The 930 was hugely impressive when new, and contemporary road testers gushed about its effortless ability to gain speed with deceptive composure, an attribute that seemed positively alien in a period when few drivers had experienced turbocharged cars.

1980 Porsche 911SC Coupe Weissach Edition

1980 Porsche 911SC Coupe Weissach Edition

The 911 Weissach Edition is probably my favorite of the various special or commemorative edition 911s produced by Porsche. Like most Porsche special editions the ‘specialness’ comes almost entirely in the form of aesthetic changes. These are mostly for marketing and to push some sales, but some of them are still interesting combinations even if there’s little in the way of performance improvements. What I like most about the Weissach is that it didn’t bother being tame. Many of the special editions are nice looking 911s; the Weissach sort of bugs out your eyes once you step into the interior. Of the two available color combinations – Platinum Metallic and Metallic Black – the example we see here in Platinum Metallic is probably the more tame of the two. Everything matches so the gaudy interior doesn’t punch you in the face quite as much. But I think it’s a fun combination even if a little over the top. Other enhancements were Platinum Metallic painted Fuchs, sport seats, and rather than the standard 911SC whale tail the Weissach received the whale tail from the 3.0-liter 930 Turbo. This one here sits with 85,576 miles.

I’m finding myself strangely drawn to this 911. I say strangely because while it is very pretty – hence the source of my attraction – it is otherwise a fairly standard Red 911. And even though I like red it is not typically the color that most captures my attention. The pictures have, almost without exception, been touched up, which is too bad since it detracts from our ability to fully take in the car but it is typical of this dealer. Regardless, we can still see that this is a nice looking car, in good condition and with a lovely vintage style about it.

As technology advances and automakers trend toward more advanced technologies, many car enthusiasts are searching to snatch up the older relics of the past, especially those that have been methodically maintained and tenderly restored.

1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

We’ve seen a steady slow decline in prices of the Porsche 930 over the past year or so. While restricted primarily to the 1986-1988 model years, which lack the 5-speed manual of the ’89MY and lack the early significance of (especially) the 3.0 liter Turbo, it’s been a general feature of the whole range with only the rarest examples commanding significant premiums. This has coincided with a seeming increase in the number of 930s coming up on the second-hand market. In a sense that’s logical: greater availability of comparable options will reduce values. But it’s also a little strange because why sell if the market is going down? Unless you think those decreases will continue. That is the area I want to have an eye on and the example we see here might be signalling that further recessions in value are likely. Here we have a Silver Metallic 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe, located in New Jersey, with Blue leather interior and just 39,340 miles on it priced at a shade under $90K.

With an asking price of $90K I’m not going to call this 930 inexpensive, or even undervalued, but with fewer than 40K miles and one of the less common interior colors it does seem to me a reasonable price and one that is lower than what we’d have previously seen. At the very least it makes a nice starting point to negotiate. As a counterpoint, we aren’t offered any description – something that seems strange from this dealer – and we see no evidence of documentation beyond the CoA. Without documentation $90K certainly will be too high a price.…

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with 10,604 Miles

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with 10,604 Miles

Somewhat needless to say, but we don’t see a 964 like this very often at all. Obviously ultra-low-mileage 911s are rare. However, we do come across them with some regularity and, of course, among the limited-production models very low miles is almost the norm. But a fairly standard 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe? I haven’t seen it. I almost wonder how a 964 like this came about. I suspect it was bought with the intention of being part of a collection as the first Carrera 4 model Porsche produced. As a piece of Porsche engineering history it certainly will hold appeal in that regard and here it sits now in original condition as a time capsule from that era. For the very thorough collector it should make for a nice addition.

1976 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa

1976 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa

Time to return to one of my favorite conundrums: the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0. Never made available for the U.S. market and produced in fairly small numbers worldwide, the Carrera 3.0 followed on the heels of the European Carrera 2.7 MFI. That car has amassed a decent following and commands strong value because of its close relationship to the 911 Carrera RS Touring. The Carrera 3.0, which lacks the 2.7 liter engine of the RS, has failed to achieve such regard. Its own engine possesses some cachet through its relationship to the iconic 930 Turbo, but I think most are just as likely to associate it with the later 911SC. Granted, a Carrera 3.0 isn’t exactly cheap, but relative to its predecessors it comes in at quite the value. The example here is restored and has higher mileage but in its current condition it looks quite good.

Rob Ida 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

Rob Ida 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

I’m not sure it would be possible to pick worse lighting conditions for photographing this 930. I suppose if it were dark that would be worse. Sorry, I just needed to get that out of the way because I’ve seen other pictures of this car and it looked incredible. A non-metallic, almost matte, Silver will never be the most jaw-dropping of paint choices but it can look good when executed well. Here it is executed well. Really well. I won’t pretend to have any special knowledge of this 930, but there is plenty of information out there for those who want to read about this build. I didn’t know it existed until now.

Rob Ida is the primary man behind Rob Ida Concepts and most well known for his work with custom built hot rods. In some cases they are incredibly cool designs with lines that stretch the eye along the car’s length creating a sense of movement even while the car stands still. But he’s also worked on a few Porsches and here we have for sale his 1986 Porsche 930, which was displayed at SEMA 2016. As SEMA cars go this build actually is quite subtle. For the most part it maintains the basic design of the 930 – why mess with a classic, right? – with the only major change being a revised front end created by Rob Ida himself. The overall package is aggressive, but with very clean lines and not over the top. The wheels are staggered 16″ at the rear and 15″ up front in order to produce a subtle rake. Achieving that rake was the primary motivating force guiding his work and the end result is pretty great. Frankly, it’s probably one of the best 930s I’ve seen.

1981 Porsche 911SC Targa

I love coming across a high mileage 911 in good condition. Seeing a car that has provided so many joyous miles to its owners, yet that still looks as good as other cars with significantly fewer miles always makes me smile. Its past will hold stories and experiences, of going places, seeing things, and visiting people, which are the hallmark of our love for motoring. A pristine garage queen has its place. They are like pieces in a museum serving as representations of a previous era. But the well worn examples are more fun and dare I say more interesting. Here we have one of those well-worn cars: a triple black 1981 Porsche 911SC Targa, located California, with 202,639 miles on it. Of course, even 200K miles doesn’t equate to a lot of mileage on a yearly basis when looking at a 36-year-old car, but still we don’t see too many 911s on the market with this many miles and regardless of how many of those miles were covered each year, they were still traveled.

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

I’ve never really been a fan of the big wheel craze that has overtaken the automotive world over the last decade or so (Yes, please do get off my lawn). One of the first things I did with my car was downsize the wheels. They were lighter, wider, looked better, and they fit. Perfect. What does this have to do with this 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S?

1981 Porsche 911SC Coupe “RS” Backdate

1981 Porsche 911SC Coupe “RS” Backdate

We come across a lot of backdated 911s in a wide variety of builds though nearly all based on a similar premise: the underpinnings of the 911SC or 3.2 Carrera mated to vintage long-hood 911 Carrera RS styling. A common version I’ve seen is kind of a Frankenstein: a 911SC chassis with a 3.2 Carrera engine and that RS styling. As with any build, quality can be almost as variegated as the color palettes. I like the idea and many of them look great and provide something that many 911 fans find quite desirable. Not for all, since purists will always cherish originality, but the variety makes the market more intriguing and might even give buyers some ideas of their own.

This one, at least on appearance, is a pretty interesting one. It is photographed well and that always helps these cars stand out because their colors tend to play up contrasts more so than a standard 911. It also comes across as a fuller package though not necessarily pushed to the limits. They’ve done not only exterior and interior treatments, but they’ve also put in some effort to bring a vintage quality to the engine by fitting Weber carburetors and generally restoring it to pristine shape. The details certainly won’t excite you like something from Singer – I don’t think there’s anything here that we’d call bespoke – but the overall execution looks solid and the selling price should be significantly below that of a Singer. As an alternative to a standard 911SC or 3.2 Carrera this might make for an interesting option.
