Week In Review

Welcome back to Week in Review. We apologize for not getting this out sooner, but with GCFSB staff on the move with summer travels and your managing editor dealing with a move, we were a bit tied up. But let’s take this chance to recap the last month of vehicles we have featured:

1993 Volkswagen Corrado SLC VR6

For many enthusiasts, the Corrado SLC VR6 is still the ultimate Volkswagen – but even if it’s not, you can respect what a solid piece of engineering it was. The Corrado was really a Halo car for Volkswagen in many ways, and while the G60 motor was a bit underwhelming for the weight of the Corrado, the VR6 provided the right soundtrack and power output to rightly place the coupe amongst one of the best front wheel drive cars ever produced. These superb 2-doors have never really gotten very cheap, but that’s generally been good for enthusiasts now – by being a premium product, the Corrado has in general been kept out of hands that were incapable of keeping them in good condition. What we get, then, are occasionally a great example of a coupe that really performed on the level of many sports cars, but still offers Volkswagen practicality and enough room for 4:

1993 Porsche 928GTS

For years there was continuing rumors that Porsche would finally produce a four-door saloon, but it wasn’t until 2009 that the Panamera would appear on the scene. No matter how good of a drive the Porsche Panamera is, I just can’t get by the aesthetics. It’s certainly not the ugliest car ever produced, but it just has an awkward presence that puts its grand touring predecessor, the 928, in a good light. Futuristic for its time, the car has aged gracefully and late model examples such as this 928GTS have begun to appreciate considerably. This 928GTS for sale in Ontario, Canada has a reasonable 66,000 miles on the clock and the more common 4-speed automatic gearbox.

1993 Volkswagen Corrado SLC VR6 with 39,000 Miles

Lightning never strikes twice, it’s like deja-vu all over again, there’s a glitch in the Matrix; choose your phrase. Because if yesterday’s low mileage Corrado G60 didn’t get you excited for some two-door Volkswagen action, perhaps today’s even lower mile later SLC VR6 will. Although it’s much less common to see good examples of the earlier G60 model, the VR6 is equally if not more sought after with it’s great narrow-angle V6 soundtrack, slightly revised looks and spectacularly perfect Speedline wheels. Often seen in popular green, maroon or red, this is a nice departure again with another silver example, this time Satin Silver:

Motorsport Mondays: 1993 BMW 318i Dinan-built Racecar

Obviously we write up a lot of cars at this site, and we see our fair share of cars from dealers with a real gap in information provided that we’d like to see. Often times, there seems to be no rhyme or reason to which cars get no description or why; they can be a 300SL Gullwing for multiple millions of dollars right to a first generation GTi. Despite the range of value, one thing unites these cars; there are enthusiasts who love to see them, and buyers who would really like to know more about the car. Today’s car is no exception; a 1993 BMW 318i, this would generally be a forgotten charm right now. The E36, while a great car in its own right, isn’t in favor the way the E30 is and consequently larger engined variants are plentiful, and more importantly cheap. So what is interesting about this economy car turned racer? Well, it’s a claimed Dinan built car, and for a time in the 1990s BMW handed Dinan the keys to build some pretty wild semi-factory backed racers – so they’re well versed. But the mystery isn’t solved there:
