It isn’t very often that I come across a 911 that somewhat confuses me, but with this car I spent a considerable amount of time trying to make sure I understood exactly what model it is and while I think I know, I’m still not entirely sure. Part of my uncertainty simply has to do with the possibility that this is a European variant of which I’m not entirely aware, but let’s cut to the chase: here we have a Black Metallic 1993 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6, located in Paris, with 38,526 miles on it. My confusion comes from the options/modifications on this particular car. You see, it looks like a Turbo S ‘Package’ car, one of the rarest of the very rare 911 Turbos to be produced. Except, as far as I know, the Package car was only produced for the US market and the Turbo S was only produced in 1994. Presumably, then, this is a factory-modified Turbo 3.6 complete with the sport exhaust, Speedline wheels, and rear air intake of the Turbo S (along with a considerable bump in power). If that, indeed, is the case, then this probably isn’t as valuable as an actual Turbo S, but it may just be more rare. Either way, it is absolutely beautiful!

When the W124 debuted in the mid 1980s, it was pretty much business as usual for Mercedes-Benz. First, the sedan made its debut, followed by an estate variant and a pretty pillarless coupe. Then, in the early 1990s, Mercedes revived an old idea and brought back the four place cabriolet. We would get our hands on this drop top W124 in 1993. It didn’t come cheap, at the cost of around $80,000. Then again, compared to an SL, two extra people could come along for the ride and enjoy open air Mercedes motoring.
We’ll take a look at a pair of two-door W124s today, starting off with this 1993 300CE Cabriolet for sale in Virginia.

Those of us not in the United Kingdom might have been a bit bummed by the steering wheel location on the Porsche 968 Club Sport we featured last week, especially since it was painted in a rare hue. But here we have another well-kept 968CS that has popped up for sale in Münster, Germany. It might not be as eye-catching as the example we saw for sale in England, but in some ways, white speaks to the purity of this machine. It was built with one purpose in mind: driving pleasure.

Let’s face it. Vans are not normally considered the coolest genre of vehicles. But with Volkswagen forbidding US customers access to their most recent Transporters and the commonality of the SUV, the Eurovan, as it was known stateside, has gained a bit of a cult status in the US. While the version equipped with the VR6 engine might be fresh in our minds, a few were sold here in the early part of the 1990s with a 2.5 liter inline-5 cylinder engine. This Eurovan for sale in Florida looks very 1993 with its shade of green and is one of the early examples equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Finding a good first generation S4 is a bit of a hard task today. First off, they weren’t the most plentiful car imported to the United States. On top of that, many have fallen victim to neglect, crashes or part-outs as they donated their valuable and powerful motors to projects. It’s gotten to the point where I’d even term it infrequent that we come across a clean 1992 model – arguably, the most desirable of the bunch with lower and firmer suspension than the rest of the C4 lineup. Today isn’t one of those occasions where we’ll see one, but I do have one each from the subsequent years to take a peek at:
