Motorsport Monday Part 2: 2004 Porsche 911 GT3

Pretty much every day we look for the best rare cars we can find, and get for some reason despite our copious amounts of searching we sometimes unintentionally ignore whole swaths of cars. When I went searching for the last Porsche 996 GT3 we wrote up, I was somewhat surprised that it was over three months ago in August. It’s so surprising because in the rarefied air of limited-production Porsches, there are few – perhaps none – that offer more bang for your buck than the GT3. Very similar to that 996 I wrote up in August, today I’ve found an exceptionally well maintained, ultra-low mile GT3 for your consideration:

A decade on, a 996 GT3 with only 23,000 miles is a rarity for sure. The August model I wrote up had double that mileage. Offered in the same color combination, this particular GT3 has the Euro Recaro seat option. It’s obvious that the owner has taken serious care of this car, with full clear bra applied to the front; it’s also a bit of a magazine star for the P21S company, should you have any doubt of the level of detailing. In terms of the GT3, the asking price is in line with the lower mileage models that have come up for sale, and while $60,000 plus may sound like a lot of money for a 996, the GT3 is truly a special car that will certainly be appreciating in the near future. Given the level of care this car has experienced and the impending collector-status of lower-mile examples, I wonder if the seller will later regret his decision to part with this car at this time; my guess is that replacing it in the not-to-distant future will be a much more expensive proposition…

Porsche 911: What Will $20k Buy?

The affordable Porsche 911. Almost a contradiction in terms, no? However, if you know what you are looking for and hone in on certain years and models, one of these rear engined Stuttgart sports cars are more attainable than you would first think. Sure, most early 911s from the 1960s are still out of reach and you would have trouble getting into a 993 at this price point, but what about some others? First up we have this 1982 911SC for sale in Colorado.

For Sale: One 1982 Porsche 911 SC Sunroof Coupe

160,975 miles
Grand Prix White with tan & brown interior.
Leather seat covers.
3.0 engine with 915 5 speed transmission.
Excellent glass
This is a longtime Denver car that has been enjoyed but well-maintained by Storz, Eisenbud, and Dart – all Porsche specialty garages.

As you can see, the car is in very good shape. The body has a minor dent on the right front fender that you can’t see in photos. The paint has been touched up- mostly on the car’s nose and leading edge of hood. No rust! There are repairable dents in the side skirts where some dummy tried to jack up the car. A few areas of the leather seats bolsters are worn but not torn. The dash was cracked in 3 places, and has been filled and repainted to camouflage the repair. The engine compartment and trunk are very clean. The original tool kit, jack, and spare are included in the trunk.

A pre-purchase inspection was done by Eisenbud’s and is included. Noted needs were a backfire “pop-off” valve, a clutch cable, air filter straps, a heater motor, Carrera cam tensioner upgrade, belts & service, and that the AC, window washer pump, and cruise control did not work. All were attended to with the exception of the AC, washer and cruise. The AC system is complete and installed should you want to put it back into service, as is the cruise control. These were not important options for me in a 911.

Eisenbud’s suspected an oil leak from cylinder #6, but that was later disproved when Dart replaced the oil return tubes.

No head stud issues.

Most importantly, Eisenbud’s did a cylinder leak down test, confirming that internally the engine is in good condition. Most cylinders had 2% to 3% leak down, with only one at 4%. Very good.

Multiple upgrades or new additions:

Pop Off Valve
Carrera Tensioners
Air filter Straps
Oil Return Tubes
Turbo Valve Covers
Bosch H4 Headlamps
Clutch Cable
Firewall Insulation Pad
Heater Backdate
Bilstein HD Shock Absorbers
Turbo Tie Rod Ends
Fuch Rims
Continental DW Tires – under 500 miles
Recent service included:

New Brad Penn oil
New spark plugs
New fan belt
New lower oil hose
Valves Adjusted
Bushings, brakes & brake lines inspected
Window tracks lubricated
Car leveled
Overall inspection for safety & reliability
The car runs and drives beautifully without issue. All gauges work, as does the stereo. Latest upgrades and service totaled over $6000 in parts and labor. It’s really a fine 911 that I pass on without reservation. Please note that I will be traveling from 11/26 to 12/3. Payment by wire will be due during that time. Pickup may be scheduled for 12/3 or later.

Thanks for looking. Check out my feedback and bid with confidence.

As has been noted on GCFSB and other forums, the SC is a great jumping off point for those interested in getting into a 911 for the first time. This particular one has had a host of important maintenance issues addressed. The one thing I would certainly check is to see if this has had the heat exchanger upgrade, as this is often a weak point on the SC. At $22,000, this is probably a little overpriced. Something closer to the $19,000 or $20,000 would be well bought.

Next up we have a Baltic Blue 1989 Carrera 4 for sale in Montana, which represents the first year that four-wheel drive appeared in any 911.

Up for auction a stunning 89 C4 Coupe, Baltic Blue over Cream leather. Extremely desirable leather sport seats. Car is in excellent condition cosmetically. Recent A/C and power steering service. Car runs and drives excellent. This is recent purchase but my dream Porsche just became available recently and I have run out of garage space so this one unfortunately must go to a new owner. PCA member owned, 10 year service history. Mechanically car is not perfect – I recently had a power steering hose changed due to a leak and there is still fluid seeping from pump and pump will need to replaced. Car drives fine but this will require attention at some point. Additionally car does leak some oil. Car is being relisted due to non payment from the winning bidder, please do not bid unless you intend to purchase.

Buying the first year of any new model is always a risk, but these Carrera 4s seem to have held up OK. With 964 prices on the rise, the asking price isn’t too out of line for what you are getting: a coupe with a manual transmission and reasonable miles for the year. For those living in the colder regions, this C4 might just be the trick to enjoy sports car thrills year round.

1985 Porsche 911 Carrera

It’s inevitable while perusing car ads. There always a particular car, whether you know it or not, that you’ll come across and say to yourself, “If I was in the market today, I’d be giving this car a long look.” Such is the case with the car featured here, a 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera located in Pennsylvania. Choosing whether to pursue a 911SC or its immediate predecessor the 3.2 Carrera in many ways comes down to what cars are available and your budget. Thanks to its larger displacement engine the 3.2 Carrera is generally perceived to be an improvement upon the 911SC, but whether that improvement balances out the cost difference between the two likely comes down to one’s own preferences. The truth is the two models are very similar, especially now that any example will be approaching 30 years of age. So regardless of preference, it’s difficult to go wrong with a well-sorted example of either model.

Up for sale is my 1985 911 carrera. It is a blk on blk coupe with full leather int, sport seats and limited slip diff. It has received a high quality repaint sometime in its life. The p.o. added ft. and rear spoilers. I added a cat bypass and a cold air kit from evolution motor sports (and have those parts to replace) along with 7+8 inch real fuchs that are refurbished, new bilstein sport shocks front and rear and new sport comp. bfgs. There is a bit of wear on piping or bead of driver seat and small blem about a 1/4 inch in bottom of seat surface, rest of int. is very good. No dash cracks. I have both books, both keys, and some service records, including a 915 rebuild with new clutch. No leaks, no smoke and the car shifts and performs flawlessly. I do not believe that the auto check is correct on the ownership count as I believe that I am the fourth owner. I consider this car to be in very, very good over all condition. Have clear title in hand. Feel free to call for any info or additional pictures. Thanks, Chris. (412) 583-9910.

A couple months ago I featured this Black 1981 Porsche 911SC that had similar mileage and was in similar condition to the car featured here. That SC was bid up to $27,400, which is very good money for a SC as anyone can see from the lengthy discussion we had in the comments regarding the SC market. That tells me that the price here of $29,000 isn’t entirely unreasonable, but I still feel it’s a touch on the high side. That Black SC was around the highest I have seen an SC bid recently, with most cars coming in under $20K. So I think we may have a similar situation here. The price here may be high but perhaps it’ll be a bit of a market-setter for a 3.2 Carrera of this condition. I’d still like to see it come down in price a bit, but if this is where the market is, then so be it. Regardless, a fantastic looking Carrera that for my eye comes exactly how I’d want it.

1997 Porsche 911 C4S

It’s hard to be a German car enthusiast and not be a fan of the Porsche 911. Almost every week we feature one here at GCFSB. From the original 901 to the recently introduced 991, these sports cars have captured the hearts and minds of a number of petrolheads across generations. One 911 that stands out is the 993, the last of the air-cooled models. Available in a variety of flavors, one of my favorites is the C4S. Sure, the Turbo model offered more power and the trademark whale tail spoiler, but there’s something subtle about the C4S that appealed to me. Perhaps it’s because I’ve always been somewhat averse to forced induction engines (yes, I know, I owned an R53 Cooper S…) or maybe it’s because I like the road less traveled when it comes to a vehicle configuration. Whatever the case may be, this 1997 Carrera 4S with just about 20,000 speaks to me.

The color of this 911 caught my attention. Rob featured a Speed Yellow 993 recently, but I’m much more of a fan of this Pastel Yellow. This is one of those colors you just don’t see a lot of. We’re all familiar with the fact that 993s are not the cheapest of 911s and this example certainly isn’t cheap. But when you consider what a new 911 costs, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone took the bait at this price and just went for one of the classics. If I was in such a financial position, it’s exactly what I would do.

Tuner Tuesday: 1975 Ruf Carrera RS

Without a doubt, Ruf is the supreme tuner of Porsches – notably the turbo models. Their legendary performance is the stuff of dreams for enthusiasts and nightmares for competitors; Ruf simply defines the market. Ruf Automobiles is also one of the few select tuners which carry their own build tags, renaming the original Porsche-manufactured cars to be known as Rufs when they leave the factory. But as with all companies, Ruf started on a much smaller scale in 1975, turning out modified 911s that hinted at their future as a premier tuner. Today there is one such model for sale, a early Ruf-modified Carrera RS:

The original 2.7 RS is a bit of a legend, and combined with the upgrades from Ruf you have a formidable combination. Having undergone a full restoration this car certainly looks the part. Despite this, the asking of this Ruf creation is only around a third of what a real RS would set you back. Is it worth it? While some of the originality has been lost, this Ruf will certainly out perform the original RS in just about every measure. Were it my money, I think I could certainly live with the difference, but then I’m well out of my league looking at this ride. Still, a man can dream, and I think this is a dream-worthy ride by anyone’s measure.

2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Let’s get back to featuring Porsche performance rather than beauty. We’ve shown recently a few examples of track-focused cars, either those with extensive work from tuners or fully stripped and prepped track machines built by individual enthusiasts. Each category brings with it its own appeal. Here we’ll feature Porsche’s own example of such a car: a 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS in what has always been my favorite color combination that Porsche offered, Black on Orange. At this point it’s fairly well known that Porsche no longer plans to offer the GT3 RS with 3 pedals, but rather all will come standard with PDK. I understand the reasoning behind their decision even if I don’t necessarily like it. What that means for us then is that the 997 GT3 RS will be the last of the breed to be offered with a 6-speed manual. For any buyers looking to row their own gears, choices won’t get too much more modern than the car we see here. While this car isn’t from the final evolution of the 997, with 415 hp from its 3.6 liter flat-6 it’s no slouch either.

Tuner Tuesday Part 2: 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster Strosek

The name Speedster is one of the most mythical nameplates to grace a Porsche. It appeared recently as a limited run 997 model and has since graced two other 911 variants and the 356 a half century ago. I’m a big fan of the 964 in general, particularly the Speedster variant. Noted Porsche tuner Strosek decided to have a go at modifying this rare vehicle and the results are, well, subjective to say the least. This Martime Blue Strosek Speedster for sale in Florida has a little over 12,000 miles on the clock and provides a window back to the mid 1990s era of tuning.

Is a modded 964 Speedster worth more than a bone stock factory version? Even though Stroksek is a known commodity, Speedsters of all kinds bring big dollars. Many enthusiasts will agree that mods like this don’t help the vehicle’s cause. Regardless, there’s a market for everything. Whether this Strosek will meet its reserve and ecplise stock 964 Speedster values will leave this as an interesting auction to watch.

Tuner Tuesday: Rauh-WELT Begriff 1994 Porsche 911

Few tuners have popped into the Porsche scene with as much of a splash as Rauh-WELT Begriff. Starting with basically stock bodied 911s, Nakai-san hand makes body kits for these cars seemingly freehand and by eye only. If you’ve watched the video of him performing his work, it’s simply amazing; it reminds me of images I’ve seen of Andy Warhol painting the M1 Procar. That’s high praise, and I think in many ways it’s deserved – the creations Nakai-san envisions are some of the best, most aggressive looking 911s out there. While they may not be to everyone’s taste, one cannot deny the impressive nature of the work when you see the finished product. Today there is a claimed one of one 993 for sale in Britain:

Complete with Rauh Welt Begriff plaque, this 993R is “Jaw Dropping” to rival RS GT2 GT3 Techart non turbo bodykit.

This conversion is the best ever to come from the rauh welt stable and steaped in international fame….

Indeed, if you search out images of RWB cars, this car quickly pops up. The kit looks in large part like the famed GT2 993 Evo, but every bit is custom made which is why the work is so impressive. The color is perfect, the wheels are neat – this car looks ready for Mulsanne without all of the stickers. As an exercise in art, it’s over the top but so wonderful I can’t help but look. Is that wonderful nature worth $135,500? Considering the unique nature of these cars it’s hard to say whether they’ll appreciate like Rufs have, but if you want the look of a RWB right now you’ve got to pay to play.

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera – REVISIT

The Isis Blue 1984 911 Carrera we featured in September is back up for sale with a slightly lowered price of $23,900.

The below post originally appeared on our site September 18, 2013:

The first time I got behind the wheel of a 911, it was a slate blue ’84 Carrera 3.2. I was still on my learner’s permit then, but even to this day, there has been nothing quite like a 911 across my motoring career. It’s one of those outliers in the automotive world; a layout that few have attempted, especially in a sports car. But for a staggering 50 years, the basic formula of a flat six swung out over the rear axle has stayed the same. Will the 911 be with us another 50 years from now? Personally, I wouldn’t doubt it, because cars like this Isis Blue 1986 Carrera 3.2 for sale in Arizona have staying power.

Introduced to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1963, the 911 was a larger, more powerful and refined replacement to the much loved 356. The 911 made its debut in the United States for model year 1965 and was an instant success offering robust German engineering in a superbly balanced sports car. By the early 1980’s Porsche AG was faced with a decision of whether or not to keep the 911 program going or replace it all together. A decision was made and the 911 program continued, making way for the redesigned 3.2 model. For model year 1984 Porsche introduced a much improved 911 and brought back the Carrera name. It was to be the very last iteration of the original 911 series, and offered more power, improved electronics, brakes, suspension and handling. Many Porsche enthusiast say the 3.2 is the best generation of the 911 and best value.

European Motor Studio is proud to offer this gorgeous Isis Blue on Navy blue leather 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe that has traveled only 108,530 miles. The car is finished in a very rare and desirable color combination of Isis Blue Metallic over Navy blue leather interior. The car is a complete rust free 3.2 911 and has never seen any snow or salt. Always garaged kept and only driven in dry climates this 911 has always been serviced correctly and only seen a Porsche dealer or certified Porsche mechanic for all of its needs. This car comes from a very large Porsche collection from Portland Oregon. The past owners were very religious on servicing and it shows in the way the car runs and drives. Everything works as it should, the power windows, the mirrors, power sunroof, the AC and heater, all of the exterior lights, brake lights, turn signals, reverse lights, dash lights, headlights, side marker lights, and all of the gauges read correctly and function as designed to. The AC was just completely sorted and a new compressor and the AC blower were just installed by a certified Porsche mechanic.

The Isis Blue Metallic paint is in gorgeous shape with very few flaws. There are a couple tiny stone chips on the front nose of the car, one tiny hairline scrape on the rear upper fender around the rear window, and a small scratch on the front fender around the headlight. Otherwise the paint shows incredibly well, the car has all of its original fenders and body panels. The body is completely straight and rust free, there are no signs of any kind of accidents or damage. This 911 still has its original leather faced interior in correct factory color of Navy blue. The interior shows very little wear, a few small stress cracks on the driver and passenger seats but free of any tears or scrapes.

The interior still has that great Porsche smell to it and is free from any smoke or mildew scents. The dashboard is completely free of any wear or cracks, all of the plastics and trim pieces are all intact and in excellent condition. All of the carpets are original and in really good shape, shows very little wear. The headliner is all original and in outstanding condition, the sunroof headliner does have slight sag to it but nothing serious. All of the glass and gauge lenses are original and clear without any hazing or pitting.

The tires are the correct size with the correct factory Fuchs Porsche wheels which are in excellent shape and free from any curb rash or scuffing. This car starts right up and idles superbly, the engine revs freely without any hesitations. The clutch is very tight and solid and once in gear the car accelerates as it should running through all of the gears effortlessly without any grinding or whining. The suspension feels nice and tight and free of any rattles or squeaks. The steering is tight and precise without any wondering or drifting. The brakes are newer and are very strong without any pulsating or pulling. The engine bay is very tidy and clean, there are no fluid leaks underneath the floor or on the engine. The front bonnet is very clean with original carpets.

This one for sale is priced right in the sweet spots for 911 3.2s that have been used more regularly than your garage queens. By no means should folks be scared off by 911s of this era with over 100,000 miles, as these are fairly hearty cars that, if treated well, will pay you back with plenty of driving enjoyment. Sure, certain upkeep and parts may be pricey, but sometimes you’ve got to pay to play. Having driven my fair share of 911s over the years, I know it’s my destiny to own one at some point. A 3.2 Carrera like this is squarely on my radar.
