Porsche has always enjoyed providing its customers with special edition models that celebrate some aspect of the marque’s heritage. Such is the case with this 1989 Porsche 911 25th Anniversary Edition (also called the Silver Anniversary Edition) in Silver Metallic. The 25th anniversary of the 911 fell just prior to Porsche’s extensive redesign of the model that would mark the end of the classic 911 body. What better time to release a limited edition anniversary model? These cars were mechanically similar to a standard 3.2 Carrera, featuring a 3.2 liter flat-six engine producing 215 hp mated to the G50 5-speed transmission. The 25th Anniversary Edition featured a host of leather interior upgrades as well as body-colored Fuchs wheels and front and rear spoilers. Though the upgrades are simply cosmetic the 25th Anniversary models have been valued slightly higher by most collectors and with time should continue to see rising values.

Welcome to Week in Review, where we’ll take a look at some of the vehicles featured on GCFSB over the last couple of weeks:
If you look hard enough, it’s amazing sometime what you can find. Take, for example, today’s E30 convertible that’s been modified with both the body pieces from an E30 M3 and the engine from an E36 M3. In the “best of both worlds” scenario, this isn’t a bad option – but to find it, you had to have a little faith. Personally, I was interested in both the widebody AMG SEC and the modified E24 6 that were in the ad’s cover photo, so I sought more information. What was inside is what seems to be a well built and very presentable box-flared E30 convertible with some serious motivation:

I’m not alone in my preference for the E38 7-series; its minor updates over the E32 seemed to really take the design to a new level of cleanliness and aggression. Relative to the well cared for E38s that still roam the streets looking amazing, most E32s look beat up, frumpy, ridden hard and put away wet. All that changes today though, as this is hands down the best E32 I have ever seen. Rocking lowering springs, M-Parallels, and a nice front lip, this black V12 beauty is the business. It’s not just a pretty face, either; it’s covered just 37k miles in its life and has had tiny issues tended to. It takes a really nice E23 for me to be more attracted than pretty much any E38; this is the first E32 that’s really ever required a second, third, and fourth glance.
