1990 Porsche 928 GT

Screen Shot 2013-05-07 at 7.14.23 PM

Every time I lay eyes on a Porsche 928, I’m amazed how modern these cars look, especially given the fact that the first ones appeared on the scene in 1977. Besides the Citroen DS and NSU Ro80, rarely has a car ever captured a modern look so far ahead of time as to look fresh over 30 years on. The 928 was supposed to usurp the 911 in the lineup, but we all know how that story ended. Later on in the production cycle, a few different model variants emerged, such as this 928 GT. Available only with the 5-speed manual gearbox, these models came equipped with the 5.0 liter V8 and for 1990, included the PSD, or Porsche Sperr Differential.

The GT would give way to the 928 GTS for the 1992 model year, the car that would see the 928 off into the sunset. With just over 2,000 built, the GT for sale in California is one of the rarest 928s and one of my personal favorites.

For years, 928 values seemed to stay rather flat, overshadowed by the iconic 911, but recently, the right models in good condition have been commanding more and more in the marketplace. Certain low mileage GTS models have been edging northward of $40,000, which seemed unthinkable just a few years before. This GT, for me, is like the goldilocks of the 928 range. While it isn’t the ultimate version of the 928, it has the all-important third pedal along with the later styling and mechanical updates to make it a better driver. It seems that earlier 928s are fetching in the high teens to low $20,000 range.

1982 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia with 911S motor!

Screen Shot 2013-05-13 at 4.17.59 PM

As soon as I saw this van I emailed one of my best friends from home and said “this is YOUR van!” Not because he should buy this one, but because it is the result of a swap we have been talking about for years. He is the lucky inheritor of a gold Westy as well as a 1974 911S that has been unfortunately and rustily neglected since a complete rebuild over 15 years ago. Our dream has been to combine the two for the perfect aircooled Westfalia. It may lack the durability and cheap repairs of Subaru-swapped vans, but I can only imagine the perfection of hearing an air-cooled 911 engine in a VW camper. His project has yet to commence, so we’ll check out this one for now.

Though currently in Canada, today’s 1982 Vanagon was originally a California car and should be easy enough to get back to the States, should you choose to get awesome. It was completely restored in 2004 with the transmission rebuilt and a rebuilt 1977 911S motor installed. From almost every angle it’s classic and perfect Westy, extremely clean and beige through the interior and exterior. That’s until you lift the rear engine cover or peak underneath and see a yellow Porsche flat-six hiding under there. Holy moly.

Talk about a sleeper! I’m surprised at the lack of brake upgrade as this tin can has double the power it originally came with. And unfortunately the fake rotors on the wheels do even less for the looks than the performance. I can get over that (it IS French-Canadian, after all), as this is a very cool van with an exceptional swap. With 3 years and $50k in the restoration, it’s obvious this van was cared for. The $25k starting price may cause initial sticker shock, but if this had a GoWesty bill of sale, it’d be going for at least twice that. Clean stock Westfalias can easily eclipse $30k these days, so this is a relative value for a damn cool car. I’m dying to get my friend’s van project going because I have to hear that engine in a van!

Porsche Pair: 1993 968 M030

The Porsche 968 is the ultimate evolution of the front engine, four cylinder Porsche that began with the 924 in 1976. Originally conceived as the 944 S3, Porsche decided to rename the car altogether as only about 20% was carried over from the 944 S2. As usual, the US market didn’t get one of the more interesting models of the 968 range, which happens to be one of my favorite Porsches of all time: the 968 Club Sport. The Club Sport was a stripped down version of the 968 Coupe, weighing in about 220 lbs less than the model on which it was based. Recaro seats, a track oriented suspension system, 17″ wheels and airbag deletion were just some of the modifications that made its way onto this limited edition 968.

But, have no fear, there was an option that would give you similar performance to the Club Sport, but with less of the luxuries taken out. This was option package M030, which included included larger front and rear sway bars, upgraded bushings and Koni height adjustable shocks. While critics complained about the ride on the street, there was no doubt that this car was a force to be reckoned with on the track and a handy tool for serious track day enthusiasts.

The first 968 M030 we’ll take a look at is for sale in Maryland and comes equipped with the limited slip differential option.

Year: 1993
Model: 968
Engine: 3.0 liter inline four
Transmission: 6-speed manual
Mileage: 80,678 mi
Price: No reserve auction, $18,000 starting bid

Click for Details: 1993 Porsche 968 on eBay

I am offering one of the best Porsche 968s available in the U.S. I purchased the car in November, 2012 from AutoKennel in Costa Mesa, California. The car spent its entire life in Southern California until I had it shipped to my home in Maryland. It has been garaged for every day of its life. The car is super clean and it is very well optioned. I am only offering it for sale because I need to raise $18,000 to deal with one of life’s unexpected expenses. I never intended to sell this car.

If you are serious about buying this 968, then I can assume you know a little about the cars. The 968 was the pinnacle of the development line that started with the 924, 944, 944 Turbo, etc. The 968 was the first Porsche offered with VarioCam timing and a 6 speed manual transmission. The 968 came in a variety of colors and with a multitude of options. One of the most sought after options is the M030 sport suspension and brake package. The U.S. didn’t get the stripped out 968 Club Sport, but the M030 cars are as close as it gets. This car has the upgraded sway bars and the bigger brakes and the 17″ wheels that comprised the M030 package. This car also came with a Limited Slip Differential. Most 968s did not come with LSD and the LSD was not automatically a part of the M030 package. Another nice option on this car is the heavily bolstered and supportive Sport Seats. All of those options, plus the 6 speed manual transmission makes this a very desireable 968. This is not a $10k – $12k run of the mill 968.

This car also comes with all service records. The previous owners (3 in total) were meticulous Porsche Club guys. They kept all records and we even have a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche. The car has no known issues. I had a pre-purchase inspection done on the car in California before I bought it. I have not needed to service anything during my brief period of ownership. The car starts, runs, steers, and stops just like you would expect. Even the AC blows nice and cold. You could buy the car and drive it back to California and I have no doubts that it would make the trip without a hiccup.

The color combination: The car is Amazon Green with a Magenta Interior. Amazon Green is a beautiful Porsche color that looks dark blue in most lighting conditions. It has a metallic shine under bright light and you can see a hint of green from some angles. The interior is in excellent condition. It is magenta. I was not a huge fan of the interior and it did put me off a bit when I first saw it. My plan, if I were to keep the car, is to replace the center armrest, gearshift, and steering wheel with black ones (but keep the magenta parts for the sake of originality). Those changes plus black floor mats would tone things down quite a bit. Others who have seen the car actually love the magenta interior. It is rare and the color combination is thought to be a true 1 of 1 produced. The 968 guys know of no other Amazon Green/Magenta 968 in existence anywhere.

I am going to offer the car without a reserve, but with the understanding that I reserve the right to terminate the auction at any time. If there is another way for me to come up with a quick $18,000 I will be keeping the car. That should actually tell you quite a bit about it’s condition and desirability. Feel free to ask any questions via ebay or you may contact me via email.

TSBeckman@aol.com

Best of luck.

I sometimes wonder what a particular buyer had in mind when I see some of the odd color combinations out there, but as they say, different strokes for different folks. Sure, the color is rare, but I tend to think most people interested in buying a 968 wouldn’t be interested in it. Nevertheless, this 968 is in good nick. It might not bring the $18,000 that the seller has set as an opening bid, however.

On to our next 968 M030. This one for sale has higher mileage but has a tantalizingly lower price. For sale in Iowa, it also comes equipped with a limited slip differential and has an interior that is easier on the eyes.

Everything works (AC/Heating, Cruise, Sunroof, Windows, Locks, Alarm, Front/Rear Wipers, Pop-up Headlight). Exterior has two small dents that should come out with paitnless dent removal. Interior is in good condition with some small cracks in the top of the dashboard. Overall its in above average condition for age/mileage. New clutch installed summer 2012!

While this 968 has higher mileage than the first 968 we looked at, it certainly looks well kept for over 150,000 miles. To be honest, I’d rather pull the trigger on the white one. Of course, the color is more subtle, but I’d rather have a 968 with a few flaws so I wouldn’t feel guilty about using it. These cars are all about pure driving thrills. Given their relatively low cost of entry, now is as good a time as ever to experience this track day hero.

Convertible Week: 1982 Porsche 911 SC Targa

Wait…WHAT??!??! A targa featured during convertible week…are we losing it? Nope, this car is way too nice to not feature and come on, let’s face it, the targa is the man’s convertible. You can get the wind in your hair and not look like you’re going through a mid-life crisis. It’s the best of both worlds.

The SC was introduced in 1978 and featured a 3.0-liter engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection that underwent several upgrades throughout the life of the SC. By the time this car was sold in 1982, the output had been increased from to 204bhp. Mated to a 5-speed gearbox, the 911 SC could put down some impressive numbers. Zero to 60 took 5.5 seconds and the quarter mile arrived in the low 14 second range.

With the perfect color combo and no turbo look clutter, this black on black 911 for sale in Carlstadt, New Jersey is a great low mileage car to add to any collection.

With only 66,000 miles, this car has seen 2,200 miles a year throughout its charmed life. With values on the 911 SC rising consistently, this car is a good deal at $22,850 and could be a steal with a bit of bargaining.

Convertible Week: 1995 Porsche 993 C4 Cabriolet

Timeless doesn’t begin to describe the looks of the 911 no matter the generation and this 993 is certainly no exception. In the Porsche lineup, the 993 is the sweet spot as far as I’m concerned. The 993 is the highest evolution of the air-cooled cars and the 3.6 liter boxer six pushed the C4 to 60 in 5.7 seconds (5.2 for the C2) and topped out at 168 mph. Not too bad for a six cylinder. The 993 was the last car before the “ugly years” as I like to call them, when Porsche gave the 911 one of the worst face lifts it had ever had. Which ever generation you prefer, this low mileage 993 C4 for sale in Springfield, Missouri is a cool nice weather cruiser.

This is a beautiful low mileage car with great mods. Gemballa is one of my favorite Porsche tuners, even though their stuff tends to be on the wild side. That said, I’m not sure where the $56K price tag is coming from. With a top dollar retail value of $45K, I don’t see where the other $10K is coming from. The modifications could add about $5K, but all in all I feel this is a $47,000 car all day long. With less than two days left on the auction, I’ll be curious to see if anyone bites.

Convertible Week: 1999 Porsche Boxster

After the demise of the front engine 928 and 968 in 1995, Porsche went a different direction with their new offering, the Boxster. Designed to bring Porsche ownership within the reach of a broader customer base, the Boxster had a mid-mounted, flat six engine which made packaging a bit of a challenge. While the car offered two trunks, access to the engine was limited, with most servicing having to be carried out from underneath. Not a car for the faint of heart do it yourselfer, then.

Today early Boxsters can be had for economy car money, discounting the obvious maintenance costs. This Boxster for sale in Missouri has low mileage for its year and is on offer at a fraction of its original price.

Excellent condition 1999 Porsche Boxster. Super low miles! Just in time for summer top down fun! Maintenance up to date. Synthetic oil! Contact me for further info!

One problem with the Boxster is the inevitable comparison to its bigger brother. People will almost always ask, “why didn’t you go for a 911?” Also, the Boxster has a bit of the hairdresser’s car syndrome, albeit not as profound as the BMW Z3/Z4 or Mercedes-Benz SLK. Given the mileage, this Boxster is reasonably priced and its black and red color combination is one of the better ones, in my opinion. You can expect to pay around $10,000 to $14,000 for a lower mileage non S variant. The more powerful Boxster S can wind up fetching a few thousand more dollars on average.

1987 Porsche 924S

Designed as a replacement for the Porsche 912, the 924 was designed to take over the mantle as Porsche’s entry level offering. This was a shocking car to Porsche purists when it was introduced, being the first front-engined, water cooled vehicle the company ever offered. It also shared its four cylinder engine with the Audi 100 and Volkswagen LT van, which put off the P-car faithful even further. But, this car did spawn the more powerful 944, which has gone on to be a well-respected classic and recognized for its fantastic handling dynamics.

The 924 lived a long life, from 1976 through 1988. Towards the end, in 1986, the engine from the 944 appeared under the hood, turning the 924 into the 924S. This 1987 924S for sale in Arizona is frankly one of the best examples I’ve seen of the breed.

1987 Porsche 924S on eBay

Take Note America…

Up for auction is one of nicest examples of a Porsche 924S that is currently for sale and not tied up in some private garage or on loan at an auto museum. The very limited production run of the S model was imported only for 24 months in the US for the years of eighty seven and eighty eight with production ending in September of 88. This model had the Porsche 944 drivetrain disguised inside of the 924 body. This eighty seven coupe is truly stunning without any exaggeration whatsoever. A modern marvel of motor engineering this S has only sixty thousand miles since new with original paint and upholstery that looks fabulous both inside and out. The body could not be any cleaner and everything opens and closes like new. Guards red that looks wet to the human eye with a ridiculously clean all black Porsche inscribed upholstery that still smells like it did when she left the Stuttgart factory overseas.

Her correct drive train consists of her 2.5L straight four cylinder motor producing 150 horsepower with a 5-Speed manual transmission that shifts remarkable in all gears. The Porsche was recently more than fully serviced at Stuttgart Southwest with about six thousand dollars of correct maintenance being performed on her. A set of brand new Yokohama YK-580 tires where just installed all around on her factory rotary dial Porsche sport rims. Her spare looks like she never left the rear compartment and everything including tool wrap, air compressor, owner’s manuals and more is included. Factory VIN inscribed glass with razor sharp tint that looks very stealth. Factory electric popup and pullout sunroof in mint condition. Her air-conditioning blows ice cold and was just fully serviced and operates superbly. Flaws are minimal with just some very minor hairline cracks on her otherwise gorgeous dashboard. This 924S looks fabulous but drives as what I would describe as better than new even. Nothing is loose and the handling is superb. If you want a rare touring car as a driver, to collect or even as an investment this S model should suffice. Call with questions and you will get answers. A great Porsche that is not easy to duplicate with these options, miles and of course condition. Worldwide shipping can easily be arranged.

To be honest, the 924 never caught my eye, but if I had the space, I would jump on this car. The color and condition are right, and in this day and age of Cayennes and Panameras, the 924 suddenly appears to be a more acceptable Porsche than those aforementioned models. The 924 is a sports car bargain and even this well preserved example won’t wind up breaking the bank. While it has a reserve, I’d suspect this car might have what it takes to crack the $10,000 mark, but only slightly.

1981 Porsche 928 Strosek Version 3

The 928 is certainly one of the most unique GT cars from the 80’s. Some love the looks, others…not so much. Well, if you hate the 928, you may want to turn away now, because this Strosek Version 3 928 is certainly not for everyone.

In 1984 Vittorio Strosek broke off from German tuner Koenig and built his own vision on the Porsche’s flagship 928. One of the first aftermarket tuners for the 928 Strosek filled a niche in the market with his wild designs. Along with the body kits, which are totally ’80s Strosek also offered tuning packages for the 928 so it had the grunt to match the looks. Strosek offered 2 levels of tuning, a mild 310bhp cam and cylinder head upgrade for the reserved, and a 405bhp twin turbo version for the all out speed junkies.

While not clear how complete (or extreme) the Strosek conversion is on this barely used 928, one thing is for sure if you played Atari in your teens, this car is right up your alley.

Up for sale 1981 Porsche 928 With only 47,000 Miles and CLEAN TITLE this vehicle has a body kit from STROSEK DHAUS AUTO SPORT. For more info please call (267) 664-1856

This car is certainly not for the faint of heart, but if you’re a fan of ’80s tuning it is exactly what the doctor ordered. This car looks like it came out of a collection, as the conversion is clean and complete right down to the OZ futura wheels. Strosek used the OZ wheels circa 1987, which leads me to believe that’s when the Version 3 treatment was done.

We’ve run in to this before several times. What is something like this worth? Strosek certainly wasn’t a household name like AMG or Gemballa, but they are rare none the less. A bone stock 928 of this age with only 47,000 miles should fetch in the $12,000 ballpark. If you add in the rarity and the modifications, this car should fetch somewhere around $17,000. If it’s a twin turbo car, upwards of $20,000. The fact that it is not priced leads me to believe that the asking price is top dollar.

1966 Porsche 912

After Porsche debuted the 911 all the way back in 1963, certain enthusiasts lamented the fact that a lower cost option was no longer available, as the six-cylinder engine increased the cost of the famous rear-engine sports car from Stuttgart considerably. Enter the 912. Powered by a four cylinder engine similar to that found in the 356, it lowered the price point where Porschephiles of more modest means could enjoy the newly introduced model. Today, even the lesser engined 912 has been increasing in cost, but in terms of vintage 911s, it is more affordable. This 912 for sale in Arizona is like taking a step back in time with the orange paintwork and steel rims/chrome hubcap combinations.

1966 Porsche 912 on eBay

Here is a gorgeous 1966 Porsche 912 5-gauge 5-speed that is in excellent condition!! This car has been in California and Arizona its entire life and is a very solid 912. This is an incredible find!!! This 912 has had tens of thousands of dollars poured into it recently and it truly shows! This car has been treated to a recent paint job, brand new interior, new windshield, every piece of weather strip ($1800 worth), every piece of chrome trim re-plated, all new felts, all new bumper trims and side trims, etc.. This car is like a time capsule, it hasn’t been modified and molested like so many other 912s. This car even retains its factory carbs and according to my research this car retains its original engine as well as its original transmission. This car is in excellent condition with its beautiful factory finish of Bahama yellow over a new black interior, factory original date coded wheels, 5 speed transmission and optional 5 gauge dash. These Porsches are incredibly fun to drive and very economical to drive every day!!! The early 911/912s with the short wheels base are great cars to own and represent the beginning of Porsches legendary sports car!!! This car is represented as it left the factory and is an unmolested car. It is in excellent condition and will surely make its new owner happy.

Exterior: This 912 is finished in the rare and desirable Bahama Yellow paint finish and is in great condition. The car was completely stripped down and taken apart for the paint job. The hood, doors, trunk, bumpers, all the trim, glass, all of the chrome surrounds etc.. were removed from the car prior to paint. During this time all of the Chrome window frames, door handles, etc… were sent out to be chromed or polished at a considerable expense. When the car was reassembled it received all new rubber trim, weatherstrip and gaskets that’s on the car. A total of about 1800 dollars worth of seals. The car was then put back together and received a new windshield in the process. Overall the exterior of this 912 is in excellent condition.

Interior: The beautiful black interior is all new and in excellent shape. The seats, carpet, door panels, headliner dash etc… have all been reupholstered and are in excellent condition. Lots of money and time was spent picking out the materials and the overall outcome is excellent. The interior looks virtually like a new car. This car is equipped with the optional 5 gauge dash with outside temperature gauge, and clock which are currently not working. All of the other gauges are in great working order. The “period correct” radio is also currently not functioning, which if you ask me, could either use some updating or simply just leave it off and enjoy the drive. The seats are very comfortable and due to the large windshield the driver is given a commanding view making it easier to hit the apex of each corner perfectly. The car retains its original steering wheel and that feels great in your hands. The large steering wheel, short dashboard, and floor hinged pedals really make ever occasion behind the wheel feel like something special. The interior of this car is in excellent condition and is a great place to spend the weekend driving up your favorite twisty roads!

Engine: The 912s engine has plenty of power from the factory to accelerate this light weight car with ease. These engines were ahead of there time and are remarkably durable. This car according to my research retains its original engine (engine number 933157), transmission and carburetion. This car is an absolute blast to drive, the engine runs and sounds terrific, the transmission shifts perfectly through all 5 gears and the suspension and steering is nice and tight. This is a great running and driving car. I have put a few hundred miles on this car in both heavy traffic as well as 75mph freeway trips and the car never skips a beat. The steering is nice and tight and free of “slop”. The brakes feel great and the car stops with ease. This 912 sails along at modern freeway speeds without breaking a sweat and does it comfortably. Overall this car has been well maintained and is in great running condition.

The 912 is an excellent weekend toy or daily driver. This is a great chance to own a very nice 912 at a reasonable price before they sky rocket like the 911s have in price!!! This car is in excellent condition both inside and out. The car is currently located in Scottsdale Arizona. I can help arrange shipping anywhere in the world and international buyers are welcome to enjoy this gorgeous Porsche!! Please do not hesitate to call me or email me with any questions.

Clean 912s like this one are settling around the mid $20,000 mark, with exceptional examples reaching into $30,000 territory and approaching $40,000. For what this example is offering, I would say it’s priced realistically. It’s amazing to think that the basic 911 formula is still with us after all these years, but looking back to the genesis of the breed, it’s not hard to imagine why that is so.

2012 911 Carrera 4 GTS

DSC_0034_zps574fd15b

For the last of 997 generation cars, Porsche pulled out all of the stops to make this the most technologically advanced 911 yet. Some of the new gadgets include car features an optional stop/start feature that shuts the engine down at stops, electro-mechanical power steering, and the optional 7-speed PDK dual clutch gearbox, which this seller passed on in favor of the 6-speed manual (good call).

The Carrera 4 GTS sports the 3.8 liter boxer 6 that, like the 911s before it, puts up very impressive numbers. The 911 makes the run to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds with the help of 408bhp and 309 lb/ft of torque coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox. While these numbers are impressive, in this day and age even sports cars aren’t immune from fuel economy scrutiny.  Luckily the GTS will go about 25 miles per gallon of fuel…not bad for an all out performer.

If I had the means, this is 100% the way I would outfit my brand new 911. When buying this car not so long ago, the seller checked off all of the right boxes on the order form. The triple black on this is stunning, throw in all wheel drive, and the all important 3rd pedal, this car is the way a non turbo Porsche should be.

At $97K this Porsche is priced up where a CPO car should be without all of the benefits of being dealer backed. That being said there is a bit of negotiation that will need to be done in order to get this beauty where it should be. But if you’re up to the challenge, this would make an amazing addition to any garage.
