2004 Mini Cooper S MC40

2004 Mini Cooper S MC40

By now, everyone is familiar with BMW’s revival of the Mini marque a little more than a decade ago. While they retained the bulldog stance of the traditional Mini, the new MINI was clearly a more grownup version of the car. It had gotten a bit bigger, put on a little weight, and added some strength (more power). But even in its larger form, the car has remained an absolute hoot to drive. Its short wheelbase allows it to transition easily through switchbacks and the steering has a nice weight to it that is uncommon in many FWD cars. It was that short wheelbase that made the original Mini a surprisingly successful rally car in the ’60s, winning the Monte Carlo rally three times from 1964-1967 (in 1966 the Mini won, but was disqualified). To commemorate the 40th anniversary of its original win, BMW produced the MC40, a limited production Cooper S that featured a variety of cosmetic additions in celebration of Mini’s racing history. The car we have here, located in Houston, is #336/1000 and has retained all of the various MC40 additions.

1996 Porsche 993 Turbo

1996 Porsche 993 Turbo

For many, the Porsche 993 is the pinnacle of the 911 line. As the last of the air-cooled 911s, it is held in heightened regard by many Porsche enthusiasts. No less important, the styling miscues of the 996 have prompted many potential buyers to bypass those models for the more classically styled 993 (and to a lesser degree the 964). This, of course, has meant that 993 prices have shot up (as an aside, for those who are fans of the 996 styling, there’s great value to be had there). A 993 RS or GT2, assuming you come across one, will set you back a few hundred grand. As for the Turbo, this particular listing might show us where values for these cars currently stand. This 1996 993 Turbo, located in California, has seen less than 21K miles and from all appearances looks very clean.

2000 BMW M5

2000 BMW M5

While I’m sure I’m not alone on this, the E39 M5 remains, for me, the best of the breed. Slightly more aggressively styled than its processor, the E39 combined a V8 pushing nearly 400 hp with the refinement of the 5-series saloon. Though the E60 would get a more powerful V10, the aesthetics of that car (or any of the later M5s) has never grown on me. The E39 finds the sweet spot of power, driving dynamics, refinement, and styling that others struggle to match. Now a decade removed from their final production, prices on quality examples of the E39 have fallen into a territory approachable by a wide array of buyers seeking one of the best saloons to have been produced. This particular example, a meticulously maintained Imola Red M5 located in Connecticut should provide us with an excellent gauge of the current M5 market. It’s low mileage, very clean, and on auction with no reserve.

BMW PPI ALREADY DONE. FULL SERVICE HISTORY. Unreal condition looks like it just came off the showroom floor. Zero paintwork anywhere. One of a kind Imola Red on Red/Black interior. Full leather option, literally everything is leather – only available on 2000 model year.

This car’s production date is 5/2000 which is good since they updated the piston rings (to reduce oil consumption) on all post March 2000 cars. Car had its 2500 miles service under original owner (can obtain from BMW if you would like, I saw it when I brought the car in for a PPI on their paperwork but the delear rep said they could not release that info) and then I have all service history from prior owner whom I purchased it from.

2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series

2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series

For the discerning driver who can’t be bothered to own a car with only 481 hp available to obliterate his tires, Mercedes took the CLK63 AMG, a not slow car, and said, “More.” Alongside the extra tire-shredding power were upgrades to the suspension, differential, body, the brakes…well almost everything. What we then had was the Black Series: a grunting, snorting, tire squealing miscreant modeled after the Mercedes F1 safety-car. While Mercedes employed a healthy dose of carbon fiber in its reworking of the Black, overall weight savings were…none. Enabling the drivetrain of this beast to cope with its abundant power actually resulted in slight weight gains. But no matter, with over 500 hp the car is still plenty quick. Because Mercedes decided that American drivers don’t like a roof over their head, they chose only to import the CLK63 AMG Cabriolet to the States. Thus, the only way to get the Coupe was to buy the Black Series. Here we have a low mileage 2008 CLK63 AMG Black Series Coupe located in Illinois. And, lo and behold, it’s black!

1985 Porsche 928S – REVISIT

1985 Porsche 928S – REVISIT

The 1985 Porsche 928S we featured back in April failed to meet its reserve on its initial listing and has been relisted. This Reserve Auction originally was listed with a Buy It Now price of $23,500 and the relisting shows a reduced Buy It Now price of $18,500. For reference, this 928 was listed about a month ago and sold for $17,680. That car was slightly higher mileage than this one, so the new price listed here seems more inline with the current 928 market.

1985 Porsche 928S – REVISIT

The below post originally appeared on our site April 5, 2013:

It’s rather amazing that 36 years after its introduction, the Porsche 928 still looks fresh. In 1977, it must have appeared to have arrived from another planet. Integrated bumpers, a streamlined shape and potent V8 power were meant to take over where the 911 was about to leave off. Funny then, that the 911 has carried on almost twenty years after the last 928 rolled off the line. These grand tourers are beginning to creep up in value, but are still lagging a bit behind most 911s. Buy a really cheap one, though, and it could put you in the poor house. This 928S for sale near Philadelphia is a low mileage minter with the desirable 5-speed manual gearbox.

1973 Porsche 911E Autocross/Track

1973 Porsche 911E Autocross/Track

Another 1973 911E? Yes, another 1973 911E. My previous post was a beautifully restored Yellow 911E that was almost completely original. For this post, I’ve swung the pendulum entirely in the other direction with this autocross prepped Porsche 911 located back in my native state of Georgia. While this car began its life as a 1973 911E, that is of little consequence with regard to its current state, other than the body design. The engine is a lightly modified 3.2 liter flat-6 from a 1987 Carrera, which has been mated to a 5-speed manual from the 911SC. Along with a variety of body panel replacements, the interior has been fully gutted, leaving only the essentials. I’m a big fan of light cars so a build like this that placed a particular emphasis on lightness has great appeal to me. That lightness does, of course, come with a price because as the seller notes, while the car can be street driven, this is not a car for the street.

I built this car for Porsche Club Autocross competition and an occasional track event. Nothing exotic, just a light car with a bullet-proof engine. It weighs 1988 lbs and has approximately 225 horsepower. I spent a great deal of time removing extra weight from the car. As Colin Chapman once said: “Simplify, then add lightness”. The engine is from a 1987 Carrera. It was carefully rebuilt with just light modifications, to keep it tractable and reliable. It starts easily and runs cleanly to redline. If you like to spend all day fiddling and adjusting to keep things running, this is not your car.

1973 Porsche 911E (Restored)

Dave Aase was a long-time supplier of vintage Porsche parts for restorations. He passed away in 2011 and what you are looking at is the restoration of his car. In 1973 the 911E featured a 2.3 liter engine with mechanical fuel injection and this car has had its original engine converted from E spec to S spec. Otherwise, this is about as close to ‘new’ as is possible with a restored vehicle, having only recently had its restoration completed.

Make your own sunshine!

This 1973 Porsche 911E Sunroof Coupe is fresh from a full rotisserie restoration. The car is numbers matching (9113201244 / 6231951 engine) and was well equipped with S trim, stabilizer bars tinted glass and a power sunroof. This car was Dave Aase’s personal 911, own a part of history.

Originally Sepia Brown, the “E” has been restored in glorious light yellow paint, Daves favorite color. The paint is immaculate and the color and shine really shows off the perfect panel gaps and precise fit and finish. This car has been completely stripped and no sign of the original brown finish or rust can be found anywhere. All rubber seals, gaskets, stainless trim and moldings have been replaced with new or refinished. Even the windshield is new. The wheels are professionaly refinished and we installed 5 new Dunlop tires. There is a new gas tank installed also.

Looking underneath, the underbody has been restored to new condition both in appearance and function. This was a very solid car to begin with and now that it is completed it is ready to drive up your favorite twisty road or win blue ribbons at concours events.

Shark Week: 1985 BMW M635CSi

Shark Week: 1985 BMW M635CSi

It seems that sharks are everywhere these days!  We’ve shown a couple M6s in recent weeks, this one differing slightly from the others in that it’s a little older, it’s not red, and it’s the European model. A friend of mine in Atlanta owned one of these in black. It was a stunning car and perhaps that’s what immediately drew me to this particular listing. This 635CSi, located in Pittsburgh, remains almost completely original, and while it isn’t a low mileage example, it should still be capable of providing plenty of motoring enjoyment. As this is a relisting, anyone who might have missed out on this car during its first auction now has another shot.

1986 Porsche Carrera

Please join me in giving a warm welcome to our newest contributor at German Cars For Sale Blog, Rob Simkins.

-Paul

This is a fitting car to serve as my first post here at GCFSB as my father owned the predecessor to this Carrera series, the 911SC, which served as my introduction to the marque. The 3.2 Carreras brought about the revival of the Carrera name, along with an increase in displacement, up from the 3.0 liter engines of the SC, and modest improvements to the drivetrain and braking systems. Perhaps most importantly, they retained classic 911 styling. For any buyer looking for pre-964 styling, the 3.2 Carreras serve as the most refined examples available.

This 1986 Porsche Carrera Coupe is in Iris Blue Metallic with Blue. Iris Blue, code 33P, a unique and desirable color. The car last changed hands in 2005 in Washington State. This car can best be described as a entry level mid year 3.2 Carrera that can be enjoyed and improved upon.

The car starts, runs and drives very nice with plenty of power, good suspension, reactive brakes and handling. Good clutch and sycnros in all gears. The paint has a nice luster and the color is consistant. Gaps are good and the doors shut correctly as does the hood and deck lid.

Interior shows well. Unmodified other than an updated stereo face plate. Stock speaker grills. Crack free dash. Headliner is good. Decent carpets and bright gages. A nonsmokers car. Matching Kuhmo tires all around, recently replaced. A/C blows but not cold. Carfax is posted, minor incident in 2006 on the driver’s side front fender.
