Right Hooker Week: 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

Right Hooker Week: 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

Truth be told I wasn’t sure if a right-hand drive 964 Carrera RS actually existed. I was pretty sure I’d seen one previously, but couldn’t be sure I hadn’t just imagined it. But here one is: a Rubystone Red 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS with triple-tone Recaro seats and 58,900 miles on it. That’s a decent number of miles for a RS, yet its condition still looks quite good. Of course, the Carrera RS was never made available in the States, but they can now be imported. Sure, there are plenty of LHD examples available, but if you really want to take things to their extreme, why not just get a RHD one and really wow people?

The Porsche 911 964 Carrera RS was launched in 1992 and was considered a lightweight version of the Carrera 2 that could be used both on the road and the race track. Arguably, this was the most dynamic and agile 911 since the original version was launched in 1973. The engineers behind the project utilised the philosophy of removing weight and adding power when designing and engineering the car. Remarkably, nearly 175kg of weight was removed from the standard version as a result of using aluminium for the bonnet and doors as well as thinner glass for the windows.
All of the weight-saving measures added up and resulted in a vastly reduced overall mass. Luxuries such as back seats, power windows and armrests could all be disposed of and the increase in power came from a brand new lightweight flywheel and some other minor modifications. The flat-six engine produced 260 bhp and also fitted to the car was a limited-slip differential, modified suspension (with a 40mm lower ride height) and stiffer springs.

Right Hooker Week: 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a love of cars. Whether it was the childlike wonder for whatever my Dad happened to have at the time or the lust-driven desire of my teenage years, cars were one of those things that occupied way too much of my mind. I even used to be able to identify almost any car at night from a distance simply by its headlights (a pointless skill that actually was useful in a police investigation once). But the car that really impacted my thinking the most is the one we see here: the 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It was the first car in my post-college years – you know, when I might actually be able to purchase my own car – that grabbed my attention and held it firmly.

At this point I can’t even recall when I first encountered the car. It was in magazine articles and Top Gear tested it. I lived in the U.K. during its production and actually wrote about it for a Theology course. So I’ve seen it in various media and once in the flesh. When Porsche announced that the 997 GT3 RS would be available in the U.S. market I was overjoyed, even if it was well out of my price range. Yet I have always come back to the 996. I actually prefer the design over that of the 997. I don’t know why. It possesses the same problems we typically associate with the 996 design, but on the RS it all works beautifully.

Right Hooker Week: 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa Supersport

Right Hooker Week: 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa Supersport

As should be clear by now, we’re looking at cars from across the pond this week. Especially those that are right-hand drive. I’m going to follow a slightly different tack from the direction Carter and Andrew have taken us so far. They’ve shown a few interesting and quite reasonably priced models that weren’t available in the States. As is not atypical of the 911, mine will not be so reasonably priced, but I do think they are just as interesting. Some even more so!

I will start with this: a Grand Prix White 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa Supersport with Black interior and just 29,250 miles on it:

PORSCHE 911 3.2 CARRERA TARGA SUPERSPORT, 1986

GRAND PRIX WHITE WITH BLACK LEATHER SEATS, PIPED WHITE
FACTORY SPECFICATIONS INCLUDE:- SUPER SPORT EQUIPMENT (TURBO LOOK), LEATHER INTERIOR, LEATHER STEERING WHEEL, FRONT SPORTS SEATS WITH ELECTRIC ADJUSTMENT, CENTRAL LOCKING, TOP TINTED WINDSCREEN, 16” FUCHS WHEELS WITH PAINTED WHITE CENTRES, HEADLAMP WASH, LUGGAGE COMPARTMENT CARPET TRIMMED IN BLACK VELOUR, REAR SEAT BELTS.

This is a real opportunity to own probably the best 911 Super Sport Edition coupe. It has an extremely low mileage, with its first owner enjoying the vehicle for the first 30 years. The last-of-the-line in traditional Porsches, these Carrera 3.2’s are the best way to deliver the famous air-cooled old-world Porsche driving experience. Evoking a time before power steering and other driving aids altered modern Porsches forever, this Porsche offers today’s lucky driver the authentic driving experience that made Porsche 911’s legendary.

The 911 3.2 had a redesigned engine inlet and exhaust system, along with the fitment of a service-free Digital Engine Management ignition system (DME), in conjunction with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel metering.

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S – Tiptronic S

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S – Tiptronic S

I will fully admit that I was pretty disappointed when I saw that this 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S was equipped with Tiptronic S rather than a manual transmission. It looked so promising as I made my way through the initial photos, especially once I realized it wasn’t black, but rather a very attractive dark metallic green (specifically Forest Green Metallic). The color combination was right, the condition of the paint looked phenomenal, and the interior looked clean and in really nice shape. And then the gear shift lever stuck out like a sore thumb. Oh well. I still think this 911 is worth featuring and investigating further, in part because I don’t really see the C2S very often with an automatic (more on that below), but also because there may be buyers specifically on the look out for such a combination. Whether by preference or necessity not everyone wants a manual transmission so here we are and this one really is beautiful.

I shudder to even call this a driver. It is a very clean car from the inside out. It was never abused, no rain, and absolutely no salty roads as evidenced by the corrosion/rust free undercarriage.

2007 Porsche 911 GT3

2007 Porsche 911 GT3

It doesn’t take much for me to take notice of any of the Porsches with “GT” in the moniker. I’m a big fan of pretty much all of them and certainly enjoy coming across nice ones for sale. The GT3 RS sits at the top of the naturally-aspirated group, but as things tend to go with the top model prices can be very high. This becomes even more true as we move toward the end of the 997 line when Porsche began seeing just how much engine they could stuff into the back of the RS chassis.

If we choose to step back just a bit to the GT3 prices suddenly become much more reasonable. I’ve looked a lot at the 996 GT3 lately as those seem to come in at really nice values for all the performance you get. As prices for the 996TT have gradually risen even those long-time performance bargains now make us look twice at the GT3. Fortunately for those looking to keep their spending sensible, the early GT3 models from the 997 line also remain on the reasonable side. Prices are, of course, still higher than the 996, but you’re getting more car too. You’re also getting a better looking 911.

The one we see here, an Arctic Silver Metallic 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 with 45,500 miles on it, is particularly striking even in silver and looks to have been very well maintained. For the buyer looking for a GT3 that’s been babied its whole life and rarely driven hard I don’t think this is the car for you. But for those who don’t mind some hard driving so long as it’s given proper care this one should make for a nice option.

Feature Listing: 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe Backdate

Feature Listing: 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe Backdate

Among Porsche 911 enthusiasts and collectors the 1973 911 Carrera RS is a much adored car and for very good reason. While not the very first performance oriented model of the 911 Porsche produced, previous versions like the 911R were produced in such small numbers that most buyers never would have had any shot at them. While the Carrera RS was still produced in relatively small numbers, production still reached around 1,500 so there were a few to go around and they caused quite a stir.

Naturally, all of this greatness means prices are now very, very, high. Some Lightweights have eclipsed $1M. Because of those high prices and the general demand for the style and performance it has become increasingly common for builders to backdate later 911s, usually the 3.2 Carrera or (more rarely) the 964, bringing the style of the long-hood Carrera RS to the more modern mechanicals and underlying structure of a later 911. We’ve featured quite a few of these builds and they come in all sorts of spec and with a wide range of prices. Here we have another, which I think looks fantastic in its very understated, but still quite pretty, Dolphin Grey exterior and within the typical range in which we see these priced, this one seems pretty reasonable!

KMC is proud to present a unique opportunity to own this bespoke, award-winning, Restomod air-cooled 911. The build was based on a clean, numbers-matching 1987 911 Carrera from California. This was a perfect base for the build, given the well-established reliability of the 3.2L engine, with a slicker-shifting Getrag G50 gear box and revised chain tensioning and lubrication system (which plagued the previous 911 generations).

2004 Porsche 911 GT3

2004 Porsche 911 GT3

I have had my eye on this GT3 for a while. It is an example I absolutely love for its color, condition, and added equipment. I can’t remember when I first came across it for sale, but I know it’s been quite a few months, maybe even longer. So why post it now? I guess because it’s my birthday. So if anyone was trying to think of the perfect present….

Anyway, here we have a Speed Yellow 2004 Porsche 911 GT3. It was originally ordered with the only options being a thicker steering wheel and red seat belts. It has since received a number of upgrades from Porsche’s Clubsport collection: full factory roll cage, a pair of very sexy GT3 Club Sport seats, 6-point harnesses, fire bottle, and 993 Carrera RS engine mounts. The Clubsport options were all available as no-cost substitutions on RoW GT3s, but were never available for the US market. That makes this one that extra bit more special.

I ordered this GT3 back in ’03 with thicker steering wheel as the only option, in Speed Yellow with red seat belts just like the promotional posters. This GT3 has full Clubsport equipment that includes a full factory roll cage, Nomex Euro GT3 Club Sport seats, 6 point harnesses, Cup fire bottle, console and ash tray deletes. A Guard LSD and 993 RS engine mounts have been the only updates.

In 12 plus years of my ownership it has been a dead reliable and fun Porsche. 52,000 miles all by one single caring owner, zero over revs. This GT3 has been maintained with an open checkbook by one single technician since new.

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

If you’ll pardon me just a moment I’m going to return to the 964 briefly. Partly because I like this particular 911 as it looks in very nice condition and is a unique color combination. But also in part because it makes for such a good comparison with the Japanese market Carrera 2 from last week. That car sold and had a higher asking price than this one so we may then be able to get some understanding of the premium attached to those RoW cars as they make their way to the US. For buyers with an interest in those cars hopefully this serves as a useful data point. Or maybe just buy this one!

For those who are fans of one of Porsche’s lesser seen blues this Zenith Blue Metallic 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S makes for a very interesting option. Though you really do need to be a fan of blue because the exterior theme is continued in the interior giving this 911 a fairly monotone, but rare, appearance. As one of the prettier designs the 911 has ever seen this Carrera S looks really good in this color. It’s a little subdued rather than eye-catching like Riveria Blue, but still possesses enough life that you’ll want to pay plenty of attention to it if you see it on the street.

I actually have featured this 911 once before. It was a couple years ago and on offer from a different seller so it seemed worthwhile to revisit with this listing. Not much has changed since that first sale with only a couple hundred miles having been added to the odometer. Everything else presents mostly the same. Like before it’s not entirely original as this 911 has a set of yellow Turbo S brake calipers along with the 993 Turbo tail.…

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

I’m going to move on from the 964 soon, but before I did I wanted to post one more. The Japanese Carrera 2 from earlier this week reminded me that the Carrera RS can now be legally imported so I couldn’t pass up the chance to feature one of those. Despite its rarity there are usually a few of these available at any given time. That does, of course, mean expanding your search quite far and even though they are available a few is just that, a few. So it still isn’t easy, but they are out there.

I wanted to find one that wasn’t too crazy expensive (though finding one below $200K seems very difficult so “expensive” is a bit relative here). There are some of those available if you want one as a collector, but I wanted to find one with some miles and that hopefully someone could drive. This also meant looking at something in a more standard color. And that’s what we see here with this Guards Red 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS, located in Italy, with 81K kilometers on it.

If you do happen to desire one that’s a little more rare and more interesting, this one or this one could suit your needs. Both of those have similar miles to this one, but come in more daring colors. All of these should be great!

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

If you’ve been around here a while then you will know that my love for the 964 has gradually grown as time has passed and I have encountered more and more of them. The model still doesn’t eclipse the 911SC as my true favorite. However, where once I saw the 964 as little more than a bridge between the classic 911 design of the 3.2 Carrera and the sophisticated modern beauty of the 993, I now see it as a design that provides the best of both worlds: a dose of modernity to show the evolution of the 911, while remaining firmly rooted in the classic 911’s iconic lines.

I also am a huge fan of the 964 in Slate Grey. Slate Grey isn’t a color I like on every 911 model. In fact, on most 911 models I don’t really love it. So I have no real explanation for why I find the 964 so appealing in Slate Grey, but I think it’s wonderful and I think the pictures here show it well. As you can imagine I really like this one: a Slate Grey Metallic 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, located in Ohio, with 74K kilometers on it.

1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

It’s summer, which means plenty of warmth, plenty of sunshine, and plenty of outdoor activities. All of that is great. In my part of the world it also means plenty of humidity and the best way to counter humidity is airflow. Fans and breezes definitely are the order of the day. And on a car what better what to increase air flow than by removing the top!

With these things in mind I present this very pretty Venetian Blue Metallic 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, located in Georgia, with Marina Blue interior and 71,555 miles on it. This color combination is a really attractive one and has a very summer feel about it with its mix of blues. And, of course, the top comes down allowing you to better enjoy that warm weather.

Ferrari Yellow 1993 Porsche 911 RS America – 1 of 4

Ferrari Yellow 1993 Porsche 911 RS America – 1 of 4

I am a fan of the RS America. I feel like I need to say this because I know sometimes the car is criticized for being somewhat half-hearted. Meaning: it isn’t really that close to the Carrera RS that it serves to replace for the US market. I understand those criticisms; they are certainly valid. I like it anyway. I like the look, I especially like the whale tail on a 964, and I like that it’s a bit paired down from the standard Carrera 2. I don’t like the current prices and I know a hefty amount of the current criticism of the model stems from those prices and whether those prices make sense. That’s a different conversation.

I also like yellow cars, especially bright yellow cars. So as you can imagine I really like this Ferrari Yellow 1993 Porsche 911 RS America. It is one of only four produced in this color and given the limited colors available as standard that makes this one stand apart even more. It was spec’d with three of the four available options: radio, A/C, and sunroof. Interestingly, we’ve featured one of the other three existing cars before. Only two more for the whole set!

Feature Listing: 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

Given the significant love shown to the 993 in general, and especially the 993 twin-turbo, it might seem strange that I would have to be brought around on them. Yet, that’s exactly the case. Don’t get me wrong, I need no convincing that these are phenomenal machines and their status as the last of the air-cooled 911s brings with them obvious additional layers of allure. But I was a kid in the ’80s so it is the ’80s 911s and the ’80s 930s that really tug at my heart. In the case of the 930, they aren’t sexy cars; they attract by a seeming brute force. In that regard, the 993 almost seemed too pretty. The all-wheel drive and twin-turbocharging features further served to tame the beast. The wildness seemed…not gone, but tamped down.

If I’m honest, when I see a standard 993 these feelings largely remain. They’re very pretty, but my mind still drifts back to the classic 911 or, with increasing regularity, to the 964. The Turbo is different. I’ve been brought around. The wide rear and massive tail pair well with the 993’s curves to produce something that is indeed pretty, but also clearly not to be trifled with.
