2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Let’s get back to featuring Porsche performance rather than beauty. We’ve shown recently a few examples of track-focused cars, either those with extensive work from tuners or fully stripped and prepped track machines built by individual enthusiasts. Each category brings with it its own appeal. Here we’ll feature Porsche’s own example of such a car: a 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS in what has always been my favorite color combination that Porsche offered, Black on Orange. At this point it’s fairly well known that Porsche no longer plans to offer the GT3 RS with 3 pedals, but rather all will come standard with PDK. I understand the reasoning behind their decision even if I don’t necessarily like it. What that means for us then is that the 997 GT3 RS will be the last of the breed to be offered with a 6-speed manual. For any buyers looking to row their own gears, choices won’t get too much more modern than the car we see here. While this car isn’t from the final evolution of the 997, with 415 hp from its 3.6 liter flat-6 it’s no slouch either.

With no reserve on we will definitely see a sale and at the very least I’ll have my eye on this one to get a sense of the market for a 997 GT3 RS. Anyone looking for a track-focused 911 with 6 gears and 3 pedals will be hard pressed to find a car better than one of these.

2002 BMW M5

There’s always something really appealing to me about a Black E39 M5. In black I find these cars to be a bit more of a sleeper. The dark color provides a nice fit for its subtly aggressive styling, which masks the visual cues that make known the fantastic power lying just under the driver’s right foot. To the uninitiated it looks like any other 5-series sedan, but those who know which details to notice will understand immediately that this is not a car to take lightly. Here we have a Black on Black 2002 BMW M5 located in New Jersey that has seen a scant 21,000 miles. Prices on the E39 have begun to rise so a low-mileage, well-maintained example such as this one may have a decent shot of appreciating. We’ve certainly seen the insanity that surrounds the E30 M3 and given the pedigree of the E39 M5 the coming years may see a similar trajectory for those cars.

The downside of the rising market for these cars comes precisely when looking at a car such as this one. It appears to be in great shape and has low mileage, but it will come at a price at the top of the current market range. As a buyer, is this a car you’d want to purchase and then add a bunch of miles? While the list price here is too high (something just below $30K would seem more fitting), for $10-12K less you could probably get a M5 with around 60,000 miles and still have an excellent machine to drive and enjoy, without too much concern over depreciation. Collector vs. driver, it’s a tough decision. Either way, I love these cars in black and for any buyer with similar tastes this car should be worth a long look.

1964 Porsche 356C

This post will not be about performance nor about driving excitement, rather it will be about beauty. While we primarily derive our enjoyment of any car from its mechanical abilities, we would be remiss if we ignored our other senses. A car that is quiet will always lack something in driving excitement relative to a car with a fantastic exhaust note. With many vintage cars it is precisely the fantastic noises that make up for their relative lack of performance compared with any modern machine. The same can be said for a car’s appearance. We’re all familiar with the wild beauty of a Lambo or a Zonda, but with a vintage car such as this 1964 Porsche 356C that beauty comes not through it garishness but through the grace of its curves and the perfect mix of polished chrome. It’s the attention to minor details that allows us to stand back and simply stare. A 356C won’t be fast; it won’t stay glued to the road through high-speed switchbacks. But it will still allow for a degree of driving bliss that many modern machines cannot match. The example here is a fantastic combination of Bali Blue over a Saddle leatherette interior that’s clearly been shown great care over the course of its life.

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1964 Porsche 356C on eBay

Offered for sale is an exceptionally solid, strong running and beautiful 1964 Porsche 356C Coupe finished in Bali Blue over a tan interior. Always a Southern California car, it has been garaged and cared for throughout its life and consequently has a solid and largely original undercarriage, with the exception of the battery box, which has been replaced. It’s also always been conscientiously maintained, evidenced by a thick stack of receipts and service invoices going all the way back through 1968 and four documented owners. The current owner has had the car for more than 30 years and it’s still titled on a California “Pink Slip” with both if its California “Black” license plates. Its correct 1600cc “C” engine has been rebuilt and the car is as strong running and fun to drive as any restored 356 we’ve owned, a pleasurable experience whether tooling around town or taking a long jaunt up the coast.

The car’s Bali Blue finish is abundantly presentable, deep and lustrous and marred only by minimal imperfections, none of which are evident in any of the pictures. The body is very straight, the door and panel fits are all good and a magnet test reveals that there’s no bondo or significant evidence of any accidents anywhere on the car. The chrome’s been redone at some point and remains in good condition, as does all of the glass, free of any wiper scrapes or rock chips. The chrome wheels and colored crest hub caps are in great shape, the tires have plenty of remaining tread and the car comes with the charming optional rear luggage rack. The car’s interior is equally as clean, the leatherette seats and interior panels showing only negligible wear, the carpets and rubber mats in excellent condition and the headliner still in great shape. The car also comes with its original spare, changing tools and partial tool kit.

Sold new to a Mr. W. Parness of Sherman Oaks, CA, the car was driven by him until 1969, at which point it was sold to a Mr. Taylor Gee of La Habra, CA. Well loved and frequently driven, he retained the car until the late 1970s, at which point it was sold to a Mr. Gregg L. Stern, of Manhattan Beach, CA. A significant collector, Mr. Stern was the then owner of the Big Sky Movie Ranch. Still in business today, Big Sky is a rambling independent film production facility and rural set originally made famous as the shooting location for such TV classics as Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Bonanza and Little House on the Prairie. Mr. Stern eventually thinned his collection, selling the car in 1982 to its current owner, a Los Angeles businessman. This owner has cared for and appreciated the car for the ensuing 31 years, first in Los Angeles and then here in Santa Barbara, using it predominately as a garaged and maintained weekend driver.

Now this beautiful example is looking for another caring owner who will continue to enjoy it, whether as the beautiful, solid, well-documented California weekend driver that it is today or as an excellent platform for a top tier restoration in the years to come. With the exception of the Italian supercars, perhaps no other marque has seen its classics generate more consistent appreciation over the last decade than Porsche, and acquiring an original, solid, documented California example is sure to yield rewards, in both monetary terms and enjoyment of ownership. Please bid accordingly

Please Note: The original pink slip for the vehicle has a clerical error showing that it’s a 1965 model year car. We’ve researched the chassis number and can confirm that it is a 1964 model year example. As such, for exportation we would need to obtain a corrected California title, which is a simple process and generally takes two weeks. Please feel free to call or email if you have any additional questions.

We want this car to go to great home and would be happy to further discuss it and answer any questions, so please feel free to email us or call us at 805-202-4557. You can also visit us online at GoodmanReed.

With the ocean as a backdrop this car looks absolutely fantastic! Porsche 356 values have seen quite a rise over the last few years and should certainly make for nice investments. Bidding here is currently at $46,100 with the reserve still on. At that price the car would be an excellent value, but I expect this will move up quite a bit before the auction ends. I can only imagine how enjoyable it would be to fire up the engine on a warm Saturday, roll down the windows, and head out for a drive along the coast.

1992 Porsche 911 America Roadster

My attraction to the 964 is somewhat confounding. In pictures, I don’t like them. The proportions seem odd. But in my neighborhood there is a very nice White 964 with Black wheels that I see parked in its driveway whenever I go for a run. It’s a beautiful car. The proportions look just right and there is a simplicity to its design that, for whatever reason, I fail to notice in pictures. That car looks fantastic! So I have been hunting around 964s lately and came across the example featured here. This is a 1992 Porsche 911 America Roadster. While Porsche offered a Cabriolet version of the 964 nearly from the model’s inception, the America Roadster differed from the standard Cabriolet by using the body, suspension, and brakes from the 964 Turbo. What we had was a limited run (only 250 were produced) 911 Cabriolet with wider rear fenders and Turbo spec brakes and suspension. Power remained the same as the standard Cabriolet with 247 hp from the 3.6 liter flat-six engine.

This is a rare, factory wide body 911 convertible, built in the 1992 model year and sold as an “America Roadster” in the U.S. I’ve pampered the car, always garaged, rarely driven in rain. In fact, rarely driven, but with a family of five, a small 2-seater isn’t practical anymore.

It is in great condition. I’ve owned it since October 2003 when it had 57k miles. Purchased from a dealer in New York and I drove it back to Southern California. Only issue is the cruise control doesn’t hold speed and A/C system isn’t cold. It needs a new rear spoiler wall (under deck lid). Passenger airbag has been disabled to allow for younger passengers in front seat. The mechanic said it’s a simple plug/unplug on a module to re-enable.

I have all the records from when I owned it as well as records dating back to May 1998/28k miles, when it was serviced at Champion in Florida. I have not had any problems with the vehicles. Reliably started when needed and runs great, with smooth shifts and good power.

I installed a new Viper alarm system when I first bought it and installed a Porsche CDR-220 head unit with Aux input and new speakers. Also installed H&R Sport Spring and 18″ Speedline-replica wheels. Original struts will be included with sale. Other great options is a factory OBC (on-board computer) that displays mileage, range, speed and trip meter. Never had an issue with the power top – always worked fine and straight.

Serviced at Hergesheimer Motorsports in Lake Forest, CA and has always passed California smog check.

Of note: Carfax will show an odometer mileage check of 123k at 3/25/2000. I saw that too when I bought it but the dated dealer service records and the condition of the car don’t match that. I had a PPI done when purchased, both in New York and when I returned, and there were no signs of that level of wear.

509

While the seller is auctioning this car with no reserve, the opening bid has been set at what, essentially, would have been a reserve price. The last America Roadster we featured had seen much fewer miles and at a listed price of $59,900 it did sell. It was a dealer listing so it’s difficult to be sure about the final selling price, but we can at least take from that listing an understanding that the car here is priced a little high. With that said, the America Roadster is rare and the combination of the Turbo’s wide-body rear styling in Cabriolet form certainly should have appeal to many buyers. The condition of this car suggests to me that it’d make a great driver, so the price needs to come down and if it does then this is a winner. Fantastic Turbo body, top down, great soundtrack: a perfect combination for simply enjoying the act of driving.

1980 Porsche 928S Euro

I have extolled the virtues of the 928 in previous features so I won’t belabor that point and will get straight to the car featured here: a 1980 Porsche 928S Euro model. That this is a Euro model is key. A good GT car should provide somewhat effortless acceleration in order to propel its driver forward with all of the elegance and haste that such a driver might require. These are, after all, performance machines. In the US market, however, that performance was limited by emissions requirements to a paltry 231 hp in 1980. While that figure would creep up, it wasn’t until 1985 that the North American 928 came with 288 hp and not until the release of the S4 in 1987 that output would surpass the 297 hp produced by the car featured here. This car isn’t perfect; it comes with a few flaws and is an automatic rather than a manual, but for a buyer who might really desire an early-80s 928 a Euro model is the way to go and this low mileage example might make for a good option.

Really nice original Low Mileage 1980 928s Euro. Licensed and currently driven in New York State USA.(though not for too many miles) grey market 928s Euro. Originally owned by a MD, was stored for about 20 years upon his death. New brakes and tires after removal from storage. Runs great, sounds awesome, feels really good to drive. Most powerful V8 motor sold in Porsche 928 that year. Front air dam and rear spoiler. Paint is good, but there are some swirls from buffing and a couple of stars in the paint you can find if you look long enough. The leather is pulled back about 1/4″ from the vent above the passenger seating and needs re-gluing in the rear quarter behind the driver. A good craftsman should be able to fix these. I bought a replacement power antenna, it needs to be installed. Climate control fan works only in defrost position. Passenger window is up and will not roll down.
There just were not that many of these cars made and imported to the US. This one is really nice original with really low mileage.
Please ask any questions or better yet, come and take the car for a drive. Matt (716)498-0467

A Brown on Brown color palette is certainly a period correct choice and for the most part the exterior and interior look to be in good shape for a car over 30 years old. The seller has noted the car’s flaws so we can at least approach this sale with the right expectations. At $17,900 the price is high for a 928 of this vintage, but it’s difficult to gauge the increased market value of a Euro model. To get the performance of a S4 with this low of a mileage figure would probably cost more than the selling price here so the price isn’t egregious. Either way, this is sure to be an interesting car and for the right buyer it should make for a good highway cruiser.

Wagon Week: 1993 BMW 525iT

For those seeking versatility without too great a sacrifice of performance buying a wagon has always been an admirable choice. While BMW has produced quite a few wagons throughout the years, I don’t think I can remember the last time I actually saw one on the streets. Relative to their German counterparts at Audi and Mercedes, BMW is almost a non-entity in this market. To a degree that’s unsurprising given their self-identification as the ‘Ultimate driving machine’, yet it’s also a shame because so many of the BMW designs have carried over remarkably well when transformed from sedan to wagon. Nonetheless, these cars do exist and the example featured here should be had at a very reasonable cost. Here we have a 1993 BMW 525i Touring located in Philadelphia. It is an automatic rather than a manual, but that’s a forgivable offense in a wagon.

We have been a licensed Automobile Dealership in Philadelphia, PA. for the past thirteen years.

I am the internet/wholesale manager and my name is Chris. Please feel free to call me with any questions at 215 669-6400.
We offer our online customers a full guarantee on the purchase of any of our vehicles. If you come here to inspect this vehicle and then decide for any reason that you don’t want it, you will be excused from purchasing it. The stated auction terms must be observed to maintain this guarantee.

This is a very clean 1993 BMW 525i Wagon in excellent condition. The owner really kept on the maintenance for this BMW and it runs and drives beautifully and there aren’t any warning lights on. This BMW is equipped with the CD Changer, and the double panel retractable sunroof, which opens in the front or opens in the rear for the back seat passengers. The retractable cargo cover is also included, along with all of the owner manuals.

We performed a safety inspection, as well as a maintenance service and road test on this BMW in preparation for sale. The engine runs very strong and smoothly, and the transmission shifts crisply. The tires were installed by the owner and are showing most of their tread. The oil & filter and the air filter were just replaced. All of the power equipment in this BMW has been checked and everything is working properly, including the air conditioning. The suspension and steering feel nice and tight.

The Green exterior of this Wagon looks great, and has been extremely well maintained. Other than some stone nicks, and a little ripple on the edge of the left fender, the only flaws on this car are very minor. There aren’t any dents or scratches, and there isn’t any body rust at all. The undercarriage is very clean, dry and in excellent condition as well. The paint is super glossy over the entire body, ad is not faded out anywhere.

The interior of this BMW is crisp, clean and very fresh. All of the leather seats are soft, supple and in excellent condition. There is almost no wear showing on the driver seat. The carpeting is fresh, clean and in excellent condition throughout this car. All of the trim panels and trim pieces are intact, tight and in excellent condition. This was a non-smoker owned vehicle, and there aren’t any smoke odors or burn marks inside this vehicle.

The title is clean and clear without any liens or encumbrances. This is a beautiful BMW that I wouldn’t hesitate to jump in and drive anywhere in the country.

On offer with no reserve and with bidding currently at $2,501 this certainly appears to present a nice opportunity. The mileage isn’t low but we’ve seen many well-maintained BMWs surpass this mileage figure with ease. The paint looks good and the interior is clean so if it can come through with a good PPI then I don’t see much reason why a car of this mileage and condition couldn’t be bought, driven a few years, and then resold for a similar cost. Not bad for easy versatility!

1983 Porsche 911SC

I have written previously about how the 911SC represents excellent value in the 911 market. For buyers interested in a classically-styled 911, these cars provide a good mix of performance and styling but without the prices that a long-hood 911 will command. However, the market for these cars appears to be at the onset of a rise and while the value is still there, I do wonder for how much longer that will be true. Nonetheless, I remain partial to the SC and even today they are a head turner whenever I see one on the streets. The car featured here is a very pretty 1983 Guards Red Porsche 911SC with Black leather interior located in New Jersey. In 1983 the SC featured a 3.0 liter flat-six producing 180 hp that was mated to the 5-speed 915 transmission.

The difficult decision when looking at a 1983 model certainly must be whether it’s worthwhile to look for a 3.2 Carrera instead. You get a little more power with the same classic 911 styling and it’ll only set you back a few grand more. It’s difficult to go wrong with a well-sorted example of either version. The car here presents well both inside and out and the seller claims to have “many” service records. Bidding has been strong so far and stands at $17,011 with the reserve still on. That should come up a little as Guards Red almost always seems to attract more action. Assuming this doesn’t go too much above $20,000 then I think we’d be looking at a pretty good value.

1973 Porsche 911 RSR Clone

While they were cars primarily intended for racing, we do occasionally come across road-going 911 RSR clones for sale even though in some regards it can be difficult to determine what exactly gives it the distinction of being a RSR rather than a RS. Those sorts of technical details aside, a car built towards RSR specifications always will be an excellent performance machine combining light weight with excellent power and mating that thrust to a capably handling chassis. Surround that performance with the iconic design of a ’73 Carrera RS and you have a car that looks just as fantastic as it will drive. The car featured here, located in Illinois, began its life as a 1973 Porsche 911T before being converted to its current specifications. The engine is a built 3.2 liter flat-six mated to a 915 transmission. For the rest of the details on body and suspension, see below. I have no doubt that this would be a very lively car to drive!

The ’73 RS Replica I featured in a previous post, which sold for $37,000, shares a few similarities in the execution and build and might give us a ballpark figure to assess a potential selling price for this car. This RSR Clone comes in with a lighter weight and with the 3.2 liter engine produces more horsepower. It was also built from an original long-hood 911 rather than a back-dated example with impact bumpers. How much that last detail especially might nudge the price up in this auction remains to be seen, but I suspect we’ll see this one come in quite a bit above the ’73 RS Replica. This is a beautiful car that has had a lot of work, and while it still needs a little bit of work to run at its full potential, it will undoubtedly make for a fantastic car.

1988 Porsche 930 – Rare Paint-to-Sample Exterior

Porsche is well known for its willingness to oblige almost any customer’s wants in regard to fitting his or her 911 with a wide variety of available options and paint colors. Porsche is also well known for charging very high prices for such treatment. C’est la vie. On the second-hand market that means interesting exterior and/or interior color palettes do show up now and again and while a seller will rarely see a significant increase in his selling price for such colors, for buyers these cars provide opportunities to own a Porsche that stands apart from the crowd just a little more than a standard car. Which brings us to the car featured here: a 1988 Porsche 930, located in Oregon, that features a rare paint-to-sample Red exterior surrounding a very nice Tan leather interior. Having covered just under 30,000 miles this 930 provides us with the rare combination of a unique color and low mileage that helps distinguish it from most others.

At the moment, the seller’s ad text states nothing more than, “Text coming soon.” If the text is added then I’ll amend the post to reflect the addition, but it is a rather glaring detail. The seller has listed this paint color simply as “Red” so I’ll follow suit, even though it presents as more of a Burnt Orange or Maroon metallic paint. Either way, it certainly presents very well and assuming there are no major mechanical flaws, then this is sure to be a great car. If the Cobalt Blue 930 I featured last week was too flashy, then perhaps the more subdued nature of this 930 will be more pleasing while still showcasing a unique color. Recent auctions for a 930 in excellent condition have seen prices in the low- to mid-$40,000 range and I would expect this 930 to sell for a similar price, if not slightly higher given the lower mileage of this car. The only caveat to that is that the unique color seen here may need the right buyer to come along in order to see typical 930 value. Regardless, the 930 itself was always a fantastic performance machine and in a unique color such as this that just makes the car even better.

1967 Porsche 911

I’ve come across quite a few early 911s recently in a wide variety of current build and condition. From fully prepped track cars to rusted out shells in need of serious restoration work to well kept drivers it seems just about every variety has popped up for sale. The model featured here falls into the third category and takes us back to nearly the beginning: a Tangerine 1967 Porsche 911 located in California. With 130 hp coming from the 2.0 liter flat-six engine these are not powerful cars by any modern standard, but for their day, given their reasonable curb weight, they still provide enough acceleration to move along at a brisk pace without much trouble.

I have owned this 911 for about 5 years. I purchased it from a man whose dad had left this car to him when he passed away. I believe the Dad was the original owner, so technically I am only the 2nd owner of this car.

This car runs like a new car, and it will cruise at 80mph for hours. If you are looking at this Ad then I don’t have to give you a lesson on Porsche or the 911. I am sure you know that the 911 when it came to the US, it was more expensive than the Corvette and the Jaguar E-type.

This is an original California BLACK PLATE Car, and it has never left California. This is a RUST FREE car. (check out the pics of the undercarriage and the front trunk area).

The car was in running condition when I bought it, even the paint on the car was in very good condition which could have been polished out. If it wasn’t for a poor quality of the front end repaint, I would have left the Paint original. (There is no sign of any repairs to the body in the front or anywhere on the car). One thing let to another, and about 3 years ago, I decided to restore the car.

We decided to go ahead a rebuild everything. The Engine was completely rebuilt with new bearings, gaskets, timing chains, Head studs, Cam sprockets etc. The Oil pump, Cam shafts, Heads, and Cylinders were rebuilt.

The Transmission was rebuilt with new 1st gear assembly, 1st and 2nd gear sliders, 3rd and 4th gear sliders, all 5 new Synchros, 1st gear dog teeth, 4th and 5th gear dog teeth, and 1st gear snap ring. The Flywheel was resurfaced, and the clutch was replaced with OEM SACHS clutch kit.

The Ignition system has been converted to Electronic ignition. No more points! The Alternator and the Starter were rebuilt.

The Fuel system was cleaned out, with new Fuel sending unit, Fuel pump, and rebuilt Weber Carburetors.

The brake calipers were rebuilt, and the pads and rotors and master cylinder is replaced. The shifter assembly and linkage were replaced.

The Exhaust Heater boxes were replaced with DANSK heater boxes. So there is heat inside the car. This car is ready for those long trips down the coast or cross country.

The Exterior was de-trimmed and repainted with Original style PPG Single Stage Tangerine Orange Paint. All the Chrome was re-chromed. and the weather seals were replaced.

The interior was re upholstered in original style and quality Leather + Vinyl. The carpets were replaced, and the headliner was replaced.

Everything on this car works, all the lights work, all the gauges work, The Wipers work, the horns work, the original radio works, the heater works.

This is a great example of an excellent condition driver quality 911. You can enter car shows, and it can win trophy’s, but it is NOT A Concours quality car. It would not be too much work to make it a concours quality car, but I have always believed that “Cars are meant to be driven” especially an early 911 like this one.

I have all the receipts of the work done to it in the last 3 years. I also have a written warranty from Motor Meisters for the engine rebuild for 1 year. I also have the “Porsche certificate of authenticity”

I have a few vintage cars, and I am so impressed with this 911, because it drives like a modern car but it is almost 50 years old.

This is a great opportunity to own a piece of Automotive History. The values on these cars are only going to go up.

The seller here has represented the state of this car quite well. It isn’t entirely original as it appears both the engine and transmission have been sourced from other models and while it looks in excellent shape it is not a concours car. This is, as he states, a period-correct driver and there will always be a place for that sort of car. Already having had the engine rebuilt and a decent bit of restoration work, there’s a good chance many of the headaches of a 46-year-old car will be mostly alleviated. The difficult assessment for a car such as this will always be the price. Any buyer is paying for a bit of history and some nostalgia, but the market for an early 911 has shot up to such a degree that even a non-original driver like this will cost significantly more than later examples that offer much more capable performance. At the moment, the asking price is at the high end of what it should sell for were everything original. So for this particular car it’s definitely a bit too high. Nonetheless, there aren’t a ton of period-correct driver-ready examples around so perhaps with some negotiation this car could be had for the right price. All that would then be left, would be to go for a drive.
