Kiln Red Metallic 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Kiln Red Metallic 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

This is a Porsche color I have never seen before. I like when that happens. Of course it’s made even better when the color is one that I like the look of as well. The color in question is Kiln Red Metallic and here we see it on a 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe with only 26,998 miles on the clock. I really only have these pictures to go by, but Kiln Red appears not quite burnt orange and not really a brick red either (though that is the way ziegelrot translates). By name I’d guess it comes from the fiery inside of a kiln and we can sort of see that blend of orange, red, and yellow at work here. It’s a captivating color and even though these pictures mostly show it under direct sunlight I imagine it will show dramatic changes in the shade or even on a cloudy day. Positioned under one of those flaring red/pink sunsets it’d probably look amazing.

1969 Porsche 912 Coupe

1969 Porsche 912 Coupe

For quite a while posting any Porsche 912 was a chance to showcase a car that held significant similarities to the long-hood 911, and which could be just as enjoyable to drive, but came at a fraction of the 911’s cost. But that slowly changed. While the 912 has remained the less expensive alternative to the 911, the gap between the two models has closed and with that closure the 912 began to make less sense. Here is one that might get things back to making sense. It’s far from original, which helps explain some of why we should expect it to come in at a lower price. However, for those looking for a driver the modifications may just make this 912 even more appealing.

Wonderful tangerine 912, 5 speed, outlaw(ish). I acquired the vehicle from a friend and spent over $15,000 this past year to make what it is now. I wouldn’t hesitate to go on a road trip to California and back tomorrow, it drives like a dream.

The car is fitted with A/C. This isn’t an original Porsche A/C system, and I have no idea when it was installed. It didn’t work when I bought the car and I thought about removing it all together. But I live in south Texas, and I wanted to drive the car year around, so I decided to get it fixed. It works pretty good actually.

All the work as been done (beside the A/C) by Steve Henry @ Eagle Racing in Dripping Springs, Texas. Steve is one of the most respected Porsche aircooled mechanic in the south. He works on a lot of aircooled race cars for the PCA.

1980 Porsche 928

1980 Porsche 928

When I was about my son’s age (he’s just turned 5, amazingly), my father took me to the Porsche dealership. Rows of new arrivals from Zuffenhausen lined up, a cornucopia of Easter egg-colored speed machines. In 1983, the low, organic, flowing shapes of the 911 and 944 stood in vast contrast to the bulk of three-box designs that proliferated the marketplace. But there was one shape that really stuck out to me – the 928.

In 1983, Porsche hadn’t yet abandoned its hope that the 928 would ascend to the top of the Porsche model lineup, and because of this I don’t remember seeing any 928s outside. Where I did see them was inside the showroom, where I distinctly remember one residing. My father was taken by the 911 (still is, to this day), and perhaps it was a father-versus-son stereotypical response, but the air-cooled model looked old and antiquated. The 928 was, both literally and figuratively, the antithesis of the 911. Water-cooled, front-engined, Grand Touring. It looked like a spaceship both inside and out. Clearly, this was the future I was witnessing.

Yet the 928, for all its press and relative market success, never caught completely on. It was never able to wrest the crown from the 911 as the signature model for Porsche. But what is perhaps most surprising to me is that it is one of the few cars that today, over forty years gone from its design phase, that unlike basically every other car model produced in the 1970s and 1980s, it still looks futuristic today. Okay, admittedly, the plastics have aged, tiny wheels with big, comfy side walls are no longer the norm and flush-fitted windows, lights, locks and antenna would clean the design up significantly. But compare this design to a few contemporaries, for a moment – the 1976 Chrysler New Yorker, the Toyota Cressida, or the Fiat 128.

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I intend this to serve as a companion piece to yesterday’s 993 post. It isn’t really a comparison since I don’t think that would make a lot of sense. Yesterday’s 993 looked to be entirely original and was very low mileage while this one is modified and higher mileage. But given that even with its low miles I viewed yesterday’s car as one that you should probably buy with the intention of driving it anyway, then looking at an option that much more logically fits into the driver category seemed worthwhile. I also happened to come across this one and thought the total package looked pretty good. Here we have a Midnight Blue 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in California, with 97,982 miles on it. As you can see the miles are definitely a good bit higher with this 993, but if its maintenance has been kept up with then there is little reason to think that it won’t have plenty of miles left in it.

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

At first glance I thought this 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe was going to be a very interesting color that I’d never seen before. But instead I think the lighting in the pictures was showing things a bit strangely. It turns out the color is Polar Silver, which although a nice shade of Silver isn’t something unfamiliar. This 911 itself, though, is still pretty nice! The miles are very low, it’s had one long-term owner (though apparently two owners overall), and everything is said to be original. As with many low-mileage 993s the price is pretty darn high, but the last of the air-cooled 911s have always seemed to have a premium attached.

1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet

1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet

I’m pretty sure this will be the oldest car I’ve featured. And I don’t imagine I’ll happen across any that are much older given how rarely a Porsche of this age even pops up. I’ve written before about how much I enjoy the 356 for its simple and elegant lines, the vintage charm of the painted dash, and the nostalgia of having a chance to experience such an early icon. Here, with this Azure Blue 1953 Porsche 356 Cabriolet, I’m going back even to the early days of this very early model. While there are mechanical differences between this “Pre-A” 356 and its successors, the basic blueprint of the model is there and the elegant lines remain. With its Telefunken radio the interior takes on an even greater level of vintage charm and the quad round tailights at the rear give a very clean look. As with most any 356 a Cabriolet in a lovely color like this really brings out the best in the design and it exudes grace.

1989 Porsche 944 Turbo with 36,000 Miles

1989 Porsche 944 Turbo with 36,000 Miles

Where does the 944 Turbo lie in the collector market? That’s a fantastic question. For such a limited model produced over a relatively short span of time, there’s an amazing array of models and changes that occurred over the run that alter the car’s perception, the car’s performance, and – most importantly – the car’s value.

Starting in 1985, the “951” took the idea which had been pioneer with the 924 Turbo and Carrera GT/GTS/GTR and brought it to a much larger audience in a much easier to digest package. Every successive model year saw some changes, from the addition of anti-lock braking in 1987 to the upgraded “S” package in 1988, replete with Cup-inspired Koni suspension and turned-up engine performance for near 250 horsepower. This package carried over, largely unchanged minus the deletion of the S designation, for the entire 1989 model year in the U.S.. Of course, the power, performance and package of the 944 Turbo immediately brings it into comparison with the other two revolutionary small displacement sports cars of the time; the BMW M3 and the Audi Quattro. Each had their own unique character, each has their heavily devoted, mind-can’t-be-changed-that-they-were-the-best-ever fact sheets, and each has their flaws. So how to they stack up in the market today?

Paint-to-sample 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

I post this car knowing full well it must have some sort of problematic history attached to it, but I’ve yet to be able to figure out of what that history consists. Or perhaps the problem simply is that its history has proved too difficult to trace? Either way, this paint-to-sample Salmon Metallic 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera has been for sale for too long at what should be a reasonable price for there not to be something going on in its past that has dissuaded buyers from pursuing it. That it’s currently for sale by a dismantler, while somewhat curious, isn’t of significant concern to me at the moment since I’ve seen this car for sale through other sellers. It was even on auction back in 2015 at the Mecum Anaheim auctions and bid higher than the asking price here so someone was once interested enough. So what’s the situation?

The Porsche 911 Cabriolet – An Air-Cooled Chronology

The Porsche 911 Cabriolet – An Air-Cooled Chronology

I don’t know what exactly has lead to my decision to feature Porsche’s various air-cooled Cabriolets. I suppose it was a confluence of circumstances. During one unseasonably warm February weekend, I found myself sitting outside enjoying a beverage and the warm sunshine. As one does. A very pretty 3.2 Carrera Cabriolet drove by. The condition looked very good and it was one of those subtle but interesting color combinations. The exterior was some shade of metallic grey and it had a nicely contrasting green interior. Perhaps the exterior was Granite Green Metallic; I’m not really sure, but it was nice looking. It was a perfect afternoon for enjoying such a car.

Then I started coming across some interesting 911 Cabriolets for sale. After a couple of them I wondered if I could find one from each air-cooled model. I was successful and a post was born. I’ll say from the outset these aren’t from the value part of the 911 spectrum; interesting enough they are all priced within a few thousand dollars of one another. None is inexpensive, but all look in very good shape and promise enjoyable drop-top motoring. We’ll look at them chronologically starting with the first 911 Cabriolet Porsche produced: this Guards Red 1983 Porsche 911SC Cabriolet, located in Illinois, with just 19,016 miles on it.

1981 Porsche 911SC Coupe

This is a very pretty 911SC. It’s hard to tell that from the pictures, but it’s a Light Blue Metallic exterior over a Cork interior and that combination always produces excellent results. Here, parked in front of an idyllic farm setting, it reminds us of the joy of carving a section of backroads with little traffic and great scenery. For someone who lives in a city it’s an enticing combination. We’ve seen quite a few 911SC Coupes hit the market in the past six months or so and this one is priced a good bit higher than most of those. However, it has only had two owners and is said to be in entirely original condition with nothing more than some minor touch-up paint here and there. If those points can be verified, then that higher price may be warranted.

The market for the 996TT seems to be waking up some. Or at least sellers seem to be putting their cars up for sale more frequently and while prices aren’t shooting up they certainly seem on the rise. I’ve come across a decent number of X50-equipped Turbos, and even a few of the (very similar) final year Turbo S Coupes. This Seal Grey 2002 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe is neither of those, but it sits with pretty low mileage and overall looks in nice shape.

Motorsports Monday: 2009 Porsche Cayman S Interseries

Motorsports Monday: 2009 Porsche Cayman S Interseries

Porsche history has always been intrinsically linked with racing since before they were even a company. From Mercedes-Benz to Auto Union and later Cisitalia, Porsche offered world-beating designs prior to establishment of its own independent racing heritage. Since the 1950s, they’ve never looked back, and every successive generation has their own legends that were born. For my father, it was the 908 and 917, while I grew up with the turbocharged whistle of the 956 and 962 dominating race tracks. To capitalize on this nostalgia, coupled with more gentleman drivers heading to the track every weekend than there ever have been, Porsche’s lineup has increasingly focused on track-biased cars. But that hasn’t stopped some from going a few steps further, and Napelton Porsche launched an interesting idea just before the turn of the decade.

Why not create a race series of equal cars, slap historic liveries on them, and hit the track? The Interseries was just that, with door to door action pitting the iconic color combinations of Porsche history at the hands of mere mortals. From the Salzburg 917 that first took Porsche to the Le Mans title to the unmistakable Rothmans colors, each of these cars wore a bit of what made the marque a legend for so many people. Everyone has their favorite design, so this series offered Porschephiles a veritable cornucopia of visual pleasure. Today, one of these cars has come up for sale:

HERITAGE

This car was originally a police detective vehicle in Italy. Exported to the USA in 1975 where it was purchased by my late father.

This car is in excellent running condition. Starts with ease, idles steady, and sounds beautiful. The Sportomatic transmission shifts like a dream, no grinding, expertly rebuilt two years ago. The motor has excellent acceleration and power and is extremely a joy to drive. The brakes have strong initial bite, no fading, no pulling.

This car features the highly coveted original Recaro Sports seats and rear window wiper, both were considered options off the assembly line.

Original Fuch wheels restored by Harvey Weidman in 2006.

No issues of rust and/or corrosion throughout any area of the vehicle.

The rubber and seals are in excellent condition.

Sonderwunsch 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet

I’ve come upon this one a little late as there isn’t a lot of time left in this auction, but it’s a wild and interesting enough 930 that it’s worth our time. Porsche’s Sonderwunsch (“Special Wishes”) program provides customers with a wide array of features from which they can build themselves a very unique car. In most cases buyers keep things rather sane and choose a specific color for either the exterior or interior, or they select a couple of interesting interior details. Every now and then a customer goes further…quite a bit further. From the outside this 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet shows a few obvious touches with the side strakes and revised front air dam similar to what we see on the Slantnose. When we step into the interior that is when the customization really takes off. Just take a look:

Their range of available services is all inclusive—drivetrain, suspension, exterior or interior—and nothing falls outside the scope of their capability and quality standard.

This 930 Turbo has been factory customized with the following features: custom body work consisting of rear-fender air intakes with horizontal strakes, a special-order (leather-to-sample) green full-leather interior, a center console with extra gauges, leather dash, and additional under-dash glove boxes.

1989 Porsche 944S2

1989 Porsche 944S2

The Porsche 944S2 took the twin-cam out which had debuted in the short-lived 944S for the 1987 model year to the next level. Bumped from 2.5 liters out to 3.0, the new motor crested 200 horsepower, producing nearly as much twist as the standard 944 Turbo had only a few years before but with no turbo lag. Beefed up too were the looks, which mimicked the Turbo’s design with smoothly integrated bumpers, brake ducts and fog lights as well as a rear diffuser. Wheels looked visually like the Club Sport, but were a different offset. The new “Design 90” style was also seen on the 928 and 911 model and became the signature Porsche look for a half decade. Though many point to the 968 as the ultimate development of the transaxle 4-cylinder, the 944S2 offers most of that package with the chunkier looks of the 951. Few come to market looking as nice as this example does:
