1994 BMW 530i – REVISIT

The 1994 BMW 530i we featured last October is back up for the sale at the same ask of $9,900. If you’ve hankered after the chance at a clean example of one of the most handsome 5 series to date with an eight cylinder engine under the hood, you’ll want to take a second look at this sedan.

1994 Mercedes-Benz E500 Limited

Following on to the AMG E-class estate goodness we just saw earlier today, here’s a very nice example of one of the last of those famous Mercedes-Benz/Porsche collaborations, the E500. We’ve waxed poetic about this car many times, but a variation some might not be aware of was that a Limited model appeared towards the end of the E500s lifecycle. These E500 Limited models included different trim, inclusive of some rather avant garde upholstery and Evo II wheels. As if this performance special wasn’t limited enough, feast your eyes on this silver beauty for sale in the United Kingdom at 4Star Classics.

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose – REVISIT

cw_800

The Black 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose remains for sale and the sellers have reduced the starting bid significantly from the astronomical price of $950K to the still-insanely-high price of $600K. As this remains a reserve auction the actual selling price may remain the same, but perhaps this time it might actually receive a bid. This is a car we will likely have our eye on for a long time as it could give us one of the few chances to get a handle on what buyers are willing to pay for these ultra-rare Turbos. The price likely is still well above where it needs to be, but with time perhaps it will enter more reasonable territory. It does make me wonder though: what would be a reasonable starting bid for this auction?

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose

Naturally it took me very little time to decide whether to feature this car after I came across it. Here we have a 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose. 1 of 39 produced for the US market, and 1 of 93 total Turbo S produced worldwide. The 3.6 Turbo S was the final iteration of a variety of 964 turbos Porsche produced beginning in 1991 with the basic Turbo, which carried over the 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-six that had served the 930 so well for many years. In 1993 a turbocharged version of the 964’s 3.6 liter flat-six finally was readied and as a final send-off Porsche Exclusive took hold of the remaining Turbo chassis available to produce a Turbo S based off of that 3.6 liter engine. The majority of the 93 cars produced (66 in all) featured the 968-derived flatnose and that nose remains the car’s most identifiable feature. Other notable features are a unique whale tail, Speedline wheels, quad exhaust, and rear air inlets to help feed air to the engine. And of course, they had more power – 385 hp – all delivered to the rear wheels. These were the last of the purely rear-drive Turbos Porsche would produce outside of the GT2, which raised the insanity even more. The 964 saw a pretty large number of limited production models and for its combination of performance and refinement the Turbo S remains one of the best.

1994 Mercedes-Benz E500

The Mercedes-Benz W124 500E/E500 is one of those cars that we hadn’t quite seen from Mercedes-Benz and probably won’t see ever again. A product of cooperation between Porsche and Mercedes-Benz before AMG was absorbed as an in-house tuning arm, this sedan packed a powerful V8, suspension enhancements and subtle styling tweaks to be one of the most potent four-doors of its day. Now that AMG is responsible for all go fast Mercedes-Benzes, I look back on this outlier, what some consider the first true four-door Porsche. This final year E500 for sale in Atlanta is one of only seven 1994 E500s painted in Polar White. Given this is such a popular hue these days, this one is bound to catch some attention, as pedestrian as it might seem on the surface.
