2010 Porsche 911 GT3

Ever since the release of the iconic Carrera RS in 1973, Porsche has periodically introduced production cars so as to fulfill homologation standards for road racing series in which they planned to race the 911. Not surprisingly, these cars are highly regarded and sought after. While the GT3 RS takes buyers a little closer to a RSR, the GT3 remains an excellent alternative for most drivers and possesses probably 95% of the GT3 RS’s performance for a bit less cost. For all but the most devoted racer or collector the GT3 probably even represents better overall value. The car featured here, a 2010 Porsche 911 GT3, comes from the 2nd generation of the 997 and features a 3.8 liter flat-six delivering 435 hp to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. Like many of these cars this one has seen very few miles.

1967 Porsche 911 Sunroof Coupe

I should get this out of the way from the start: this is not a correct original 1967 Porsche 911 Sunroof coupe. It has seen quite a few modifications, though for the most part those modifications have been done in a manner that is befitting of the original cars that provided these builders with some inspiration. Its lack of originality will mean that it won’t appeal to everyone. Truth be told I’m not entirely sure how much it appeals to me. It is, however, undeniably pretty even wearing a color that most would struggle to find appealing. But here it all seems to work. For details on the full work done to this car see the ad copy below, but, suffice to say, this car has seen extensive work both inside and out, including quite a bit of engine work. All things considered, it’s pretty fantastic!

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

We feature various editions of the 3.2 Carrera here at GCFSB, but rarely do the cars we come across have low mileage. Even the car featured here, a 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa has almost 45K miles, but for these cars that represents a decently low mileage car. The fact is that most of these cars have already eclipsed six-figure mileage because they have been driven. And why wouldn’t they be? The 3.2 Carrera is a fantastic driver’s car and for the most part prices remain within reach of a large number of buyers (at least relative to the rest of the 911 line) and so they are less likely to be locked away in a comfortable garage. The Targa tends to fit the bill even more as they are less loved than both their hard- and soft-top counterparts. The car here comes in the ever popular combination of Guards Red over Black.

1994 Porsche 911 RS America

In order to satisfy the desires of Porsche enthusiasts seeking something a bit more hardcore than a standard 964 Carrera 2, in 1993 Porsche released the RS America, a limited run lightened model that came without such features as power steering, A/C, and even a radio, but included a whale tail and sport suspension. A radio, sunroof, limited-slip differential, and A/C could be optioned onto the car, but it still came in at a lower weight than a standard Carrera 2. While the RS America remains a far cry from the much more potent and lighter 964 RS available in Europe, it still provided modest gains in an effort to improve driving dynamics for those buyers seeking such things. These cars remain relatively rare but do pop-up from time to time for sale and here we have a 1994 Midnight Blue Porsche 911 RS America located in California. This one is fully optioned and has seen 112,500 miles.

1988 Porsche 930

The Porsche 930 has always been a personal favorite as it was the performance variant predominantly available during my youth. The performance and aesthetics both held a certain wildness that few cars could replicate without us moving well into supercar territory. At some point, it’d be fantastic to own one, but prices on these cars are on the rise, especially for an example that remains in good condition. The car featured here looks to be one of the lowest mileage I’ve come across and appears nearly pristine inside and out. Here we have a 1988 Porsche 930 located in Florida that has seen a scant 4042 miles and comes in what I’m guessing is Marine Blue, though the seller lists it simply as “Blue”. Either way, it’s a fantastic color that stands apart from the standard colors while providing the subtlety some owners might desire.

1967 Porsche 912 Karmann Coupe

For anyone who desires a ’60s Porsche with classic 911 style, but would prefer to save quite a bit of money, the 912 offers an alternative. While they’ll never be as popular as the 911, they remain a car of relative simplicity and in comparison with most any modern car the performance differences between the two are not significant. There are even some who would claim the 912 was a better handler than the 911 due to its better balance gained from having less weight over the rear wheels. Either way these cars provide another option for classic motoring and since few but the most pristine examples are prized by collectors, they can generally be driven without worry over any possible depreciation. The car featured here is a 1967 Porsche 912 Karmann Coupe, located in California, that has seen a bit shy of 90K miles.

1967 Porsche 911 Vintage Racer

As one of the icons of road-racing history, it isn’t surprising that 911 owners frequently choose to convert their classic street cars into vintage racers. While not every 911 was built to be raced, the underlying genes of these cars were derived from racing and Porsche continues to push and refine the 911’s dynamic capabilities in order to produce some of the best road-racing cars available from any marque. A racer from the ’60s will usually fall well short of the performance to be had from a modern 911, but for that classic feel a vintage racer makes for a pleasing alternative. The car featured here is a 1967 Porsche 911 located in California that, while remaining streetable, comes with a rebuilt race engine and an interior set up principally for racing.

1978 Porsche 930

While it would likely be too much to say that the Porsche 930 created the 911’s image as a high performance car that required an equally high degree of skill, there’s little doubt that the 930 helped cement that legacy and propel the model forward. These cars were intended to raise the bar for Porsche performance into supercar territory and for the most part it was a success. Beginning with the 1978 model year, Porsche increased displacement from 3.0 liters to 3.3 liters and added an intercooler in order to bring power up to 300 hp. With the addition of the larger whale tail on the Turbo the car’s looks were aggressive enough to suit its performance. The car featured here is an excellent looking 1978 Porsche 930 that comes in the rare combination of a Bamboo Beige exterior over a Cork leather interior. While it has just under 55,000 miles it’s seen a fully rebuilt engine along with the refreshing of most other components.

1986 Ruf BTR Cabriolet

A Ruf built 930 hardly needs much introduction on these pages. Ruf produced the BTR, a modified 911 based on the Porsche 930, as both a Coupe and a Cabriolet with each of those variants also coming along with the even more rare Slantnose option. The already potent turbocharged engine of the 930 was coaxed to deliver 374 hp to the rear wheels, making an already very quick and lively car into one of the best performing cars of its day. While the BTR is neither as well known nor as powerful as the famous CTR Yellowbird that was produced around the same time, it remains a highly sought after vehicle from one of the automotive-tuning world’s most respected brands. The car we see here is a 1986 Ruf BTR Cabriolet located in Colorado with just over 31,000 miles.
