10k Mile 1988 Porsche 928 For Sale

I have never owned a 928 but I have driven a few.  These are fantastic touring cars, outside a BMW 850 I can’t think of a better vehicle on the open highway.  But these were terribly expensive cars in their day and even more expensive to maintain.

This led to many sharks winding up with owners who were not ready for the full 928 experience.

From the Seller –

“I am helping my father sell his 1988 928 S4. Only 10,478 original miles since new. The paint is perfect – no dents, dings, or scratches. The interior is near perfect except for some slight carpet fading. No cracks, fading, or damage to the vinyl and leather surfaces. Wheels do not have curb rash and the engine compartment is near spotless. Carfax certified. Automatic, no damage history.

While the car is in phenomenal condition, my father is extremely picky about his cars, so he had the following work done to bring it up to his standards:

New timing belt,
New A/C compressor,
New tires,
Complete maintenance check and tune up.

He also purchased an extended warranty for the car that has 32 month Gold coverage service contract with complete coverage from Auto Source. That item alone cost $3100 and is transferable to the new owner. Yes, the remaining time on the warranty is 32 months.

He is asking $34,500 and will consider all reasonable offers.”

Normally I would advise you to run, not walk from this car. A typical 10k 928 would have rotten tires, worn seals, porous gaskets, and lord knows what else. This shark has had a recent service and comes with the balance of a 32 month warranty. That is just unheard of!

On the other hand, what do you do with this? We talk about this all the time, it’s not like you can just start commuting in this car.…

1994 Porsche 911 Speedster

Last year, as Porsche began to wrap up production of the 997 series 911, the first Speedster model emerged from the factory in 17 years. This was only the third generation of 911 to have a Speedster model, and this 1994 model was the 2011 model’s direct predecessor. With 930 produced, this was the second rarest 964, save for the Jubilee Edition, which was not sold in the US. It was a bit of a mash up between a 911 cabriolet and 964 RS, but had a less aggressive suspension setup than the RS and less creature comforts than the cabriolet, as the Speedster name was meant to conjure up an image of a drivers car. The following example for sale in New Jersey has under 30,000 miles, but low mileage is not exactly uncommon with these cars, as many collectors snapped them up when new.

1993 Porsche 968 Club Sport For Sale

Too bad you can’t drive it, I am sure glad the seller got that out of the way early in the advertisement.  In translation this means, “I have always wanted one of these cars so I purchased one thinking I could get it federalized myself.”  Fast forward a few years and the seller found that is easier said than done.

I won’t re-hash the wiki dump the seller placed in their ad but I will say this is a very special car, something you almost never see in the states.

1993 Porsche 968 Club Sport:

From the seller –

“1993 PORSCHE 968 CS ( CLUB SPORT )

I listed her as a 1980 since EBAY would not recognize the VIN of a Euro model produced after 1981!

VEHICLE CAN NOT BE LICENSED FOR USE ON US HIGHWAYS

This is a very rare model that was produced in limited numbers by Porsche from 1993 – 1995. This particular model has an extremely rare combination of options and delete items.

Speed Yellow ( Speedgleb )

NO Sunroof

NO Undercoating

NO Power windows

NO Airbags

Rear Seat Delete

Factory Sport Recaro Seats Left & Right, Painted in Body Color

Rear Wing Painted in Body Color

Porsche Cup 17″ Magnesium Wheels Painted in Body Color

Sports Suspension (Adjustable Coilovers) and M030 Brake System with Drilled Rotors

6 Speed Transmission with Limited Slip Differential

Front Strut Brace

Options added later:

Hidalgo ( Company succeeded Matter ) Full Roll Cage

I imported the car with full EPA and DOT exemptions and you should note that the car IS NOT ELIGIBLE to be licensed and driven on US roads. I do have the vehicle insured under my State Farm Collector car policy and in theory, one could drive the car with a dealer tag. I have put less than 500 miles on the car since importing it in 2011.

Rare 1984 M491 Metallic Rose Porsche 911 For Sale

I cannot stress how much I like the M491 911’s.  You get all of the looks and stopping power of the turbo cars with exponentially fewer headaches.  What makes this example so special is the hue, Metallic Rose is not only a rare color it is absolutely stunning in person if it has been well cared for.

Typically, people that buy a vehicle based on color make me nuts.  But, for me, this hue defies my normally ambivalent feelings regarding color.

1984 Porsche 911 M491:

From the seller –

“Beautiful Option color Metallic Rose, Sport Seats. Mechanically excellent, perfect interior. Receipts back to 2002. One of 431 made in 1984, real collector value for the future. The best 3.2 engine with all of the Turbo body, suspension and brakes! “

Short but sweet.  In the few pictures provided this Carrera looks to be in good enough shape.  I wonder where the center caps are and why the RS door panels but these are nits.  These cars are getting on in years and have passed through quite a few owners.  Some of which may not me so concerned about keeping the stock nature of their car(s).

What I can tell you is the seller is a very straightforward dealer who has been doing this for close to 40 years.  You don’t sell Posrche’s for that long if you are not doing so with integrity.  If you ever find yourself in Oregon I encourage you to take the drive, it will be worth your time.

I have seen these M491 cars range in price from $25k-$32.5k, since there is no mention of mileage I would gather this car has somewhere in the 120-150k range.  If my assumptions are correct the asking price of $26k seems reasonable, a final tally of $25k seems even better. …

Well Done 1964 Porsche 904 GTS Replica For Sale

I know, it’s a replica.  But if this were the real thing there would be several more zeros attached.  A quick primer on the 904, the street-legal version debuted in 1964 in order to meet Group III regulations that require a set number of road cars be produced to qualify for competition.  The 904 is the precursor to the 917.

Most of these now sit in museums or race in vintage events.  These cars have also become quite popular on the replica market, some have fared better than others.  What we have here is #2 in a series of 25 replica cars, I am unsure of the manufacturer but I am guessing this is a Beck product.  The detail work is amazing and it is  the most accurate tribute I have seen.

1964 Porsche 904 GTS Replica:

From the seller –

“THE PORSCHE 904 GTS WAS AN OUTSTANDING RACECAR ORINGALLY PRODUCED FROM 1964-1965. DESCRIBED AS A SPECIALIST RACING CAR, THIS PHENOMENAL MID-ENGINE COUPE HAD BEEN REPRODUCED IN A “25 ONLY” LIMITED PRODUCTION. THE 1964 PORSCHE 904 (GTS) COUPE IS NUMBER 2 OF 25 AND IS READY FOR THE STREET, TRACK AND EXPORT. IT IS FINISHED IN SILVER WITH BLUE CLOTH INTERIOR AND HAS ONLY 103 ACTUAL MILES ON THE ODOMETER. THE ULTRA LIGHT-WEIGHT 904 HAS PLEXI SIDE AND REAR WINDOWS, ELECTRIC HEATED DEFROSTER ONLY AND NARDI WOOD STEERING WHEEL INSIDE.

7k Mile 2002 Porsche 996 Turbo With Gads of Upgrades

People with money do silly things.  Things like buying a $130k Porsche 996 turbo, spend even more money upgrading it and then they let it sit.  Only puling out of the garage to wash, wax, and tuck it back into the garage.  I am not sure today’s cars are going to have the collectivity of the autos of yore.  It would be tragic to assume they will only to find that the same sense of sentimentality may not exist in 30 years.  Think of all that time behind the wheel that was lost for the fear of getting a ding, scratch, or heaven forbid racking up some miles on your “precious.”

On the flip side it sure is nice when one of these hits the market.

2002 Porsche 996 Turbo:

From the seller –

“2002 PORSCHE 911 TURBO COUPE GEMBALLA

SPEED YELLOW EXTERIOR

BLACK INTERIOR

ONLY 7K MILES

THIS CAR WAS OWNED BY OUR OWNER

JUST HAD 4 BRAND NEW MICHELIN TIRES AND 30K SERVICE BY LOCAL PORSCHE DEALER INCLUDING NEW BELTS, HOSES AND PLUGS

CARFAX CERTIFIED ONE OWNER NO ACCIDENTS NO DAMAGE.”

The 996 cars are my least favorite of the 911 series.  With that I think the Turbo cars are terribly undervalued.  If you are not into attention seeking maneuvers this may not work for you.  Speed Yellow is a very striking hue and with the wheels, wing, and other styling bits the look verges on being over the top.

But the car itself looks to be as new and the $75k buy it now gets you a great deal of performance for the fraction of a comparable new one.  Bidding currently sits at $42k, the reserve has yet to be met

1990 Porsche 944 S2 Time Capsule For Sale

Hat tip to RarestRX for finding this fine S2.

I used to have a thing for shoes when I was younger.  I was obsessed by them, I would cut Nike ads out of magazines and tape them to my Trapper Keeper.

Yeah I am old.

Thinking about this sort of explains my fondness for the Porsche 944 cars.  As I grew up my thing for shoes turned into a fixation for cars.  Is it any small wonder the 944 looks so much like a shoe.  Look at a picture of the Nike Legend and look at a 944.  Creepy huh?

I dunno, maybe that is just me.

Here is a pristine example of a 1990 Porsche 944S2 with a scant 15k miles.

1990 Porsche 944 S2:

From the seller –

“Hey Guys,

I wanted to offer this to my Rennlist brothers before it goes on Ebay.

1990 Porsche 944 S2

15,952 Original Miles

Guards Red, Black interior
5 Speed manual.

This car was kept in a climate controlled Warehouse and only driven on weekends. Bought from the original owner. Every peice of service history was saved, even the original Window Sticker.

I thought my 928S was in great condition. This 944 is simply incredible.

Truly a time capsule piece.”

Beautiful car, I have made my fondness for the S2 cars well known.  90% of the turbo performance with 50% less headaches.  I know that is fuzzy math but that is my perception.

This is as fine an example that you will ever find.  Is it $20k fine?  I am not sure, $20k is a great deal of money for any S2, even one as fine as this.  But, if you are looking for the absolute best then this is the car for you.

1999 Porsche 911

The year 1999 was perhaps one of the most significant years for Porsche in recent memory, as it signaled the beginning of a new era for the venerable 911. Gone were the direct links to the past, such as air-cooled engines, round headlamps and fixed quarter light glass. The type 996 was indeed an all new design, by famed stylist Harm Lagaay and while it didn’t share any components with its predecessor, it did share much of its front end with the less expensive, mid-eingined Boxster. While some 911 purists derided the new model, it did bring about evolutionary touches to increase usability, while retaining the trademark rear-engined layout. Over a decade later, prices for 996s have lagged behind other, more desirable 911s, but it allows less wealthy enthusiasts access to the brand. This particular 911 is owned by our reader Joe and is very well sorted despite having just passed the 100,000 mile mark.

I have the California title in-hand. Payment should be by wire transfer, check, or cash. Car is located in Los Angeles area. Please contact me via email: joe@joe250.com. I searched far and wide for this car. I wanted an LSD-equipped, no accident, all-original paint 996 coupe. It had 60,000 miles when I purchased it 2 years ago. I used it as my daily driver and racked up 40,000 miles in short order. My job requires me to drive all over California. It only let me down once when the crank position sensor started to go. Other than that it has been a fantastic car to own and drive. It is plenty fast, comfortable around town and perfect for long drives.

L-O-L-A Lola… Porsche Lola Race Car For Sale

Well here is something you don’t see every day.  A Porsche Lola race car that was backed by the factory and raced from 2000-2002.  I will shut up and get to the description as this is a pretty amazing specimen.

Porsche Lola Race Car:

From the seller –

“A great investment opportunity. This Porsche was made in one example…..

Developed by Norbert Singer at Porsche Germany and Brad Kettler, now Audi Motorsport, both with huge experience from Porsche 917, 935, 962 GT-1´s and Audi´s race cars as  R8´s and up and with many wins at LeMans, Daytona, Sebring etc.

Our car raced by Champion Racing in the USA from 2000 to 2002 as a Porsche backed up car & team.  This chassie was delivered from Lola in UK, as a model year 2000, and is built up with a monocoque from carbon fiber.  The engine is the massive Porsche GT-1 evo ( fyi. GT-1 engines have a price tag of +200 000 USD ) with over 1000 Hp and the strong sequencial 6 speed Porsche gearbox from the GT-1.

Carbon fiber brakes and/or steel.  The car is ready to sit in a serious collectors show room or be used as a winning car at the track for Historical race ( race support can be organized ).  There are tons of spare parts (many of them brand new) which goes with the deal. For more info about the spares and other documents included, please e-mail me, and I will reply with photos and more info.

The car was one of the invited Porsche stars at the huge Porsche event 2011, Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV, Mazda raceway/Laguna Seca. It had a spot in the nice “VIP” tent, where it was signed by Norbert Singer & Porsche factory driver Sascha Maassen, who drove the car.

Ultra Low Mile 1986 Porsche Carrera For Sale

To me, there are few things in this world as pleasing to the eye as a ’85-’89 Porsche Carrera.  I am not alone, these cars sold quite well considering the economics at the time and driven, driven, and driven some more.  Super low mile examples such as this are very hard to find.

1986 Porsche Carrera:

From the seller –

“1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe, Guards Red/Black, 19k miles, 5 speed manual. Outstanding – always garaged, original paint in as new condition – no accidents. This is an opportunity to get close to a new 3.2 coupe in 2012 – perfect interior, all trim, gaskets, moldings. Factory options – sport seats, front and rear spoilers, cruise control, rear wiper, central locking sysytem, intensive washer system, headlight washers, blaupunkt reno 2 headunit. Added BBS 16×7 and 16×8 period correct 3 piece wheels and momo black shift knob – all else is original. Performs excellent, no leaks of any kind. Original wheels and shift knob no longer with the car, no records, compressor and tool kit.”

A couple of things give me pause, no records, compressor or tool kit.  For goodness sakes, track that down!  For $28k I think those looking for a car like this would want these things.  Or, maybe it’s just me.

The wheels, while period correct, they were ugly in the 80’s.  Now they are just awful.  1986 is also a tweener year for these cars.  You don’t get the G50 transmission but this does not bother me as much as it may trouble others.

On the other hand, this Carrera is pristine.  The interior looks new, the underside is clean, the block is dry.  The price of $28.5k does not seem all that prohibitive.  I have seen low mileage examples such as this being held for a king’s ransom so it is refreshing that the seller has his/her expectations based in reality.…
