1987 Porsche 928S4

We all know that not many pristine Porsche 928’s exist in today’s world, which really is a shame. As a victim of a reputation for being high maintenance, many 928’s have fallen into the hands of careless owners who often neglect big ticket maintenance items. The few pristine that do remain attract significantly higher values in the marketplace than their neglected counterparts, and for good reason. There’s a saying in the 928 world “it’s $10K away from being a $5K car.” Nobody wants to be the guy with the $5K car that cost him $10K, and the way to avoid that problem with a 928 is to invest in a good one from the beginning.

This car appears to be a very well maintained 1987 928 S4 fitted with the very desirable 5-speed manual transmission. Owned by a well-known enthusiast in the 928 world, this car is about as clean as they come. Additionally, it sports the highly desirable black-on-black color combo and has less than 40,000 miles. Combining the condition, manual transmission, color combo, low mileage, and the well-known ownership history equates to a very desirable 928 that should fetch a significant premium over examples lacking any of these variables.

Low-Mileage Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalias

s-l1600
The strong market for Westfalias should surprise no one by now. What is surprising, however, is finding two ridiculously low-mileage Westies for sale at the same time, in nearly the exact same spec. They’re both late-model, white on grey Vanagons that are looking for high-$30ks. That’s starting to get into decent Syncro Westy territory – are they worth it?

1987 Audi Coupe GT Special Build

Like yesterday’s Scirocco, the similarly Giugiaro-styled Audi Coupe GT added a touch of upscale Italian design to relatively pedestrian underpinnings. However, there was more of the rally-bred all-wheel drive Quattro DNA in the Coupe GT than its little brother. Nearly everything apart from the door handles in the B2 was overbuilt; massive driveshafts, bigger brakes and heavier duty suspension, and a robust engine meant that in any form these entry level Audis have stood the test of time pretty well. While in Europe there were several different variants of the Coupe in 4 or 5 cylinder and with all-wheel drive, in the U.S. we only got one at any time. Starting with a 2.1 inline-5, the front-drive only GTs worked their way up to the last of the run 2.3 NG motored cars. With 4-wheel disc brakes, special exterior and interior treatments, a unique digital dashboard and 130 horsepower, these lighter “Special Build” GTs were a performance match for U.S. spec Quattros:

1987 BMW M6

The shark-nosed E24 looks good in just about any color, but red always seems extra appropriate. From more than a few angles the Paul Bracq design cuts some Ferrari-worthy lines, and the S38 engine helped it streak down the roads with similar power and performance to the contemporary Italian 328. Thanks to the good looks, considerable speed, and increasing coveting of early M models, we’ve seen prices for these fast and luxurious GTs start chasing the E30 M3.

This red example has just 54k miles, making it one of the nicest on the market. We should expect nothing less from Hemmings, one of the most reputable names in classic cars. It has all of the documentation from new, but isn’t quite all-original. The self-leveling rear suspension has been replaced with conventional shocks, a reasonable update for longevity and maintenance. OEM+ BBS wheels are the other update, giving a little deeper dish and allowing for more modern tire sizes while looking almost identical. The original shocks are included in the sale in case you want to go old-school, but the original wheels are not. The Lotus White interior is very nice, but not the most attractive color. Low miles and nearly perfect condition mean the seller is shooting high and looking for almost $50k.

1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

We’ve featured a few 930s recently that have all hinted at the sharp increase in value we have begun to see with these early Turbos. Truthfully, some of them have more than hinted at those value increases with asking prices well north of what we are used to seeing for model years other than ’76 and ’89. The example here offers hope that there are still reasonable values to be found, though it comes with the caveat of having seen quite a bit more miles. Those extra miles are ok if the maintenance has been kept up-to-date and the car has been well cared for in other respects as well. But mileage tends to show even on the best examples and this one is no exception. Still, it’s a nice color that’s pretty uncommon for the 930 and presents quite well even with all of those miles. Here we have a 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe with 141,000 miles on it. Though the color combination isn’t stated, I’d guess it’s Venetian Blue Metallic over a contrasting Linen and Blue interior.
