1994 Porsche 928GTS

Andy McCulley from flüssig magazine has been lending his expertise on all things Porsche 928 to us here at GCFSB. This is his first post as a guest contributor, so sit back while he walks us through this 928GTS equipped with a 5-speed manual.

Here we have a lovely 1994 Porsche 928 GTS 5-speed. The crème de la crème of the 928 lineup. Although not the slightly more desirable ’95 GTS, ’94 models have been known to fetch a pretty penny when in mint condition. After all, there are absolutely no differences between a ’94 and ’95 GTS other than a slight change in the VIN to indicate the year difference. Furthermore, this example is one of just four known Iris Blue ’94 GTS models and is still with the original owner.

Located in Las Vegas, the owner claims that this example has been driven daily since new and there is certainly evidence to support this claim. While the exterior appears nice in the pictures, the owner states that it has been repainted. Anyone interested in this car would certainly want to have a thorough inspection done to validate that the repaint was done properly. One item to note is the apparent “rippling” in the trim surrounding the passenger side rear window. This may be somewhat illusory thanks to a reflection, but I would certainly recommend asking the owner about it.

The interior is the most salient disappointment, as the steering wheel appears to be either a loss or just in need of a serious deep cleaning, and the dashboard has a few major cracks. The carpet appears to be in decent condition with the exception of the piece on the drivers’ side door panel and the floor mats, which appear to be faded. There is also a crack in the bezel around the shifter, and the ashtray appears to be in rough condition. Perhaps with a thorough detailing this car would appear more enchanting to potential buyers.

1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Widebody

Porsche has made a habit – and a good habit at that – of using the final model year of any 911 to release a few special variants to send the model off with a bang. The cynics might say that Porsche is simply trying to push every last chassis (and squeeze every last dollar) onto the market, but even if that’s the case those final model years have provided some fantastic machines. Here we have one such final-year make: a Midnight Blue Metallic 1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Widebody with 61K miles on it. The Carrera 4 itself first debuted with the 964 in the narrow-body design standard to most any naturally-aspirated 911. For its final production year Porsche stretched those rear fenders to give it the Turbo-look appearance. In the right shades, these can be some of the best looking 911s you’re likely to come across.

30 Years of the W124 – A Tribute

Thirty years have passed since the introduction of the W124 Mercedes-Benz E-class range. This is a car that had big shoes to fill, as the W123 range was beloved the world over for its quality, durability and rock solid diesel engines. Arriving in the middle of the 1980s, this new mid-sized Mercedes designed by Bruno Sacco brought the company’s traditional styling hallmarks into a new era. This car would spawn coupe, cabriolet and estate variants as well as introduce four-wheel drive as an option and a few high performance V8 variants. The W124 would carry on into the mid-1990s, succeeded by the W210 E-class with its radical four-headlamp front profile.

Since we’re in the middle of winter in many parts of the US, we’ll start off by looking at this 1991 300E 4Matic for sale in California offered at no reserve.

1994 Porsche 911 Speedster

Another rare, low-mileage, 964 and another very high price. This time, however, we have an auction in which the reserve has been met so we should be able to get a reasonable idea of the current market. After the 964 Speedster, Porsche fans would have to wait nearly two decades for another Speedster variant to appear and as the last of the air-cooled models the 964 is sure to remain a hit. Also, while none of the 911 Speedsters have been as stripped down as the original iteration of the 356, the 964 Speedster may be the closest of the bunch. Based on the narrow-bodied Carrera 2, the lines of this Speedster show a familiar resemblance to the original and remind us of some of Porsche’s earliest low-frills performance machines. The particular example featured here comes from a collection of Speedsters: a triple Black 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster, located in Arizona, with just 10,456 miles on it.

Odd timing or choice? Audi Cabriolet Roundup

Why am I doing an Audi Cabriolet post on Christmas Eve? Well, mostly because it’s a model that we generally ignore. I’m not even sure why – the B4 Audi may not be the most attractive Audi model ever, but I’ve always found the Cabriolet to be the best looking of the bunch that came to the U.S. The sleek lines of the 3/4 view are especially pleasing. With refined good looks and a relatively bullet-proof drivetrain, they should be a common choice for those looking for a cabriolet. Couple that with typical ’90s low residual value for nearly all of the Audi lineup, and you’d think everyone looking for a occasional drop-top would be snapping these up. But they’re not. Perhaps it’s worry about unreliability of older Audis or perhaps it’s the lack of sport offered by the package, but the result is that if you like these 2-door drop top Audis, you can get a pretty good deal on one today:
