I’ll admit, I’m one of those Porsche 911 fanatics. I’ve never owned one, but certainly plan to before I leave this earth. The new for 2012 911 is still growing on me. I think it looks a bit more sleek from the front angle and the 7-speed manual gearbox is certainly unique. But I think the rear end is a bit too busy with the Porsche script and all of the ones I’ve seen in person have the PDK gearbox. I know, before everyone says it, I know this gearbox is more efficient and faster off the line, but I’m still one of those die hard enthusiasts that prefers to swap cogs myself in a sports car. This 911 Carrera S Cabriolet for sale in Ohio has the PDK but I am smitten with the color combination, even if the interior could be considered a bit outlandish with all that red.
2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S, 2,100 original miles. Perfect, one owner car, Agate Gray Metallic over Carrera Red, PDK transmission, Premium Package Plus, Carbon fiber steering wheel, carbon trim Deviating stitching (cream) throughout AMAZING color combination! We’ve seen our share of 911s in all sorts of colors, but this one really stands out. The way the Agate Metallic integrates with the Carrera Red interior and top is simply classic. That those finishes are draped over a gorgeous new 991 doesn’t hurt, either! You COULD have a new 991 S cab for around $109,000, but you could have this one, loaded with options, for just a few dollars more. Power Steering Plus, Premium Package Plus with 14 way heated and cooled seats, 20 inch wheels, sport exhaust, extended leather and deviating stitching as far as the eye can see. This car is optioned very, very well.
Even though I’m perfectly content with my R53 MINI Cooper S, I am longing for the day when I have the space and extra cash to buy something more aggressive to keep the supercharged pocket rocket company. The 911 is squarely in my radar, and has been for years. For me, the 1987-89 911 3.2s offer the optimal combination of classic and modern, as they are still very much the offspring of the original 901 released in 1963. Perusing through Rennlist is a guilty pleasure of mine, as the selection of choice Porsches owned by those who know and love them is impressive. This 1987 Turbo for sale in Colorado did a good job of getting my attention.

Selling my 1987 930. I bought the car with the intention of keeping it and driving it, but I’ve put less than 200 miles on it in the past 4 months. PPI is welcome at buyers expense.
The car is back up for sale. There is some debate on the car about the right front fender being replaced, so I’ve adjusted the price accordingly to $35,000 and I’m hoping for a quick sale since the car is just sitting around. It is currently in NYC.

In an era when cars look more and more alike, enthusiasts with the means will always seek out a way to have something unique that is tailored to their tastes. Case in point, the Porsche “Sonderwunsch” program, which is currently known as Porsche Exclusive. This program offers buyers the opportunity to specify options and configurations not normally seen in the standard Porsche lineup, such as the famous 964 Speedster Widebody, a particular body or interior color to sample, or in the case of this 930 Turbo for sale in San Francisco, the Flachbau, or Slantnose option.
My fellow contributor Brian and I look back on the 1980s with fond memories from time to time and this 930 Slantnose pretty much epitomizes the era, in the same way the Testarossa did for Ferrari and the Countach did for Lamborghini. Finished in Grand Prix White with Fuchs wheels to match, it doesn’t get much more over the top than this.
GP White over Black 4-speed, 3.3 Turbo, upgraded turbocharger, Ruf intercooler, $103k MSRP. This is a factory M505 steel slantnose coupe and is 1 of 271 total cars built in 1988. Options include: steering wheel with raised hub, Heated seat left and right, LSD, GP White Fuchs, left seat lumbar support, velour luggage compartment, supple leather. $13k of recent maintenance including new clutch, engine reseal. Speedline multi-piece 18″ wheels are available separately for $5,500.
Like many 911s, values for the 930 Turbo have been strong over the years, and for those with the Slantnose option, even more so. It’s fairly rare that I see a high mileage Slantnose, as those who bought these cars typically had a stable of toys to choose from. For a 24 year old car then, the 40,000 miles covered is typical for one of these sports cars.…
In all the years that the Porsche 911 has been with us, we’ve only seen the Speedster appear three times, in 1989, 1994 and 2012. There were also two 993 based Speedsters produced by the factory, one for Ferdinand Porsche and the other for noted Porsche collector Jerry Seinfeld. Of all the 911 Speedsters, the 964 based one is my favorite. The smooth, integrated bumpers mesh well with the trademark tonneau cover. Most of the Speedsters you come across these days have low mileage and have been stashed away by collectors, and this one for sale in Florida is no different.
This unique and extremely rare Porsche Speedster is in concours condition and a must have to complete your ultimate Porsche collection. With only 23,602 miles, this Porsche is one of only 427 shipped to the USA! Immediately recognizable and a real head turner is the iconic bathtub styling. This is the final edition of the drop top, air cooled 964 Speedster and a must have. The 1994 edition is significantly more performance oriented with a larger 3.6 liter engine (247 hp), larger wheels and tires, better brakes (ABS) and a faster top speed (162 mph).
This car is equipped with a 5-speed G50 gearbox, color coded 17” wheels, AM/FM/CD player, black soft top (in near perfect condition), automatic rear spoiler, driver airbag, power windows and locks, cockpit tonneau cover and complete books/keys. The Dunlop tires are brand new. It has a clean Carfax with no accident history. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a rare collectors Speedster in immaculate condition.
It seems that $80,000 to $100,000 is the sweet spot for mint, low mileage 964 Speedsters right now. The overdose of white might not be to everyone’s liking, but I’m a fan. While it doesn’t have the more aggressively bolstered seats with color keyed seatbacks, the cloth seats are a nice touch that you don’t see too often.…
As the saying goes, “diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” and that describes the story behind this 911 SC to a tee. Bought as a gift for his wife, the seller of this car quickly found out that he should have shopped at Tiffany, when his wife decided she needed a car that was easier to drive while sipping a latte.
Introduced in 1978, the 911 SC featured a 3.0-liter engine with Bosch Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. With 204 bhp, razor sharp handling, and the distinct styling, the 911 SC has become a favorite in the Porsche lineup.
This low mileage Guards Red over black stunner for sale in Tucson, Arizona exemplifies what a 911 SC should be.
I bought this awesome Porsche for my Fiancé as a Birthday/Wedding gift last month from a reputable broker. She drove it for a few miles and decided that she would rather have an automatic one! Are you kidding me?
Reason, I asked? Quote “I can’t hold my Starbucks!!” Are you kidding me?
So, here is an absolutely drop dead gorgeous, 1982 Porsche 911SC that is in very nice condition inside and out. This is a totally solid low mileage car that is a blast to drive. It is a very clean, unmolested car that has been very well kept over the years. This Targa is number 243 of only 2,426 vehicles imported for the US market in 1982. This car has lived in Arizona since 1994 and was bought new in December of 1981 at Lee Klinger Porsche Audi in Highland Park, IL. This Targa had an original MSRP of $39,500 all the back in 1982! This is a 4 owner car that is fully documented and has a FULL service history since brand new and mileage verified through service receipts.
The Porsche 964 was a 911 that wore many hats. Available in the usual Turbo and non-Turbo guise, this was the 911 that introduced all-wheel drive to the equation in normally aspirated models. In 1994, a Speedster version arrived on the scene and along with the race ready RS variant, a US market RS America, based on the Carrera 2, was offered. Along with the multitude of different models, one could request the widebody option, which gave owners the look of the Turbo without the added cost, or horsepower, for that matter. This C4 for sale in Florda is the recipient of an extensive rebuild in Germany and is a sharp example of one of those rare widebody non-Turbos.
You are looking at an extremely rare 1994 Porsche Carrera 4 wide body. There were only 254 964 Carrera 4’s made for the US market, and this one is simply stunning. It is original polar silver color exterior, and was completely restored from the ground up. The interior is wrapped in alcantara with red stitching. The engine and transmission were rebuilt during the restoration. This car is absolutely gorgeous. The vehicle was restored in Germany, and has been fully documented and completely TUV certified. You must see this vehicle in person to truely appreciate the craftsmanship and quality that went into this Carrera 4. There are hundreds of documented photos of this vehicle during its rebuild. For more information or photos, please email us.
The odometer still shows the original miles of 111,000 when the vehicle was purchased before the rebuild. The owner decided not to roll the mileage to 0, and chose to leave it with it’s original miles. Please note, the vehicle was completely rebuilt from the tub up. More pictures are available on our website.
If it weren’t for the existence of the 912, the venerable Porsche 911 might not still be with us. When it was introduced as Porsche’s entry level model in 1965, it initially outsold the 911 and was discontinued in 1969 to make way for the mid-engined 914, a joint venture sports car between Porsche and Volkswagen. These days, the 912 is often passed up for its more powerful sibling, but these four cylinder sports cars were engineered just as well and added an element of greater efficiency and affordability to the 911 range. Incidentally, the 100,000th Porsche produced was, in fact, a 912 Targa outfitted for Police use. This 912 Coupe for sale in Ohio isn’t a concours example of the breed, but is rather rust free and in good enough nick to enjoy on a regular basis.
This 1967 Porsche 912 CPE is a strong and reliable driver. It’s a 5-speed with a big bore kit that I’d get in and drive anywhere. Here are some points of interest:
-VIN# 458393; Engine# 746358
-Fresh tune-up, plugs, points, cap, timing, valves adjusted
-Solex carbs rebuilt and sync’d
-New Bilsteinsport rear shocks
-New Koni front inserts
-Gas tank cleaned and sealed
-Excellent Bridgestone Invictas, 195-65-15, Original date-matched chromies
-Excellent interior, No speaker holes in the door panels, replacement dash included
-No rust issues, some repairs professionally done
-One windows-out respray in the original color…Windows went back in with all new seals
-Clear title in hand
This car is being sold to make room for its replacement. It’s an excellent candidate for a working restoration…drive and enjoy it while you restore, or just drive and enjoy. Offered at $17,300.00 to a good home. Thanks for looking.
Pre 1970s 911s have seen prices skyrocket over the last decade, to the point where they are rather unattainable for enthusiasts of average means.…
As car enthusiasts, we all had that poster of an exotic car hanging on our bedroom wall when we were younger. One of the cars that made the rounds in my room was this very car, an Arena Red 993 Turbo. This car was the culmination of over twenty years of experimentation with turbochargers in the 911. The addition of all-wheel drive made this car a much more tame prospect than its predecessors and you won’t mistake this for anything but the hot 911 with that sculpted, body colored wing. This 911 Turbo for sale in Ohio has just over 30,000 miles on the clock and includes more aggressive sports seats along with the rear seat delete option.

Next year, the Porsche 911 will celebrate its 50th anniversary. What the sports car maker from Stuttgart will do to commemorate the occasion remains to be seen, but I thought it would be an opportune time to revisit this perennial favorite and highlight the latest development in the series, the 2012 Carrera, internally known as the 991. While changes to the exterior are subtle at best, one of the major features to be unveiled was a new 7-speed manual gearbox, a first for a production road car. While it is generally accepted that Porsche’s 7-speed dual cutch PDK transmission is faster and more efficient, I couldn’t fathom owning a 911 without three pedals. Weight is down on the new Carrera by 45 pounds and with the standard 3.4 liter, 345 horsepower flat six engine, performance is more than adequate for this rear engine marvel.
This 911 ‘s level of quality is not meant for just anyone. It’s meant for the person who strives for a classy, comfortable, and luxurious car. Driven by many, but adored by more, the 911 is a perfect addition to any home. The 911 will provide you with everything you have always wanted in a car — Quality, Reliability, and Character.
This Porsche includes:
Wheel Caps with colored crest
Platinum Silver Metallic
Fuse box cover in leather
Sport exhaust system
Natural leather interior processing code
Delete rear lid model designation
Ornamental Porsche crest
Auto dimming interior/exterior mirrors
Carrera red, natural leather seat trim with full leather interior
Power tilt/slide sunroof with shield
Heated front seats with multi-stage controls
It’s rather chilling that on the same day Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche passed away, the new 911 was declared World Sports Car for 2012. The man who designed the original 911 would have been proud.…
The Porsche 993 will forever be immortalized by 911 enthusiasts. The last of the air-cooled 911s, this car was considered the pinnacle of Porsche engineering before the company sold out and started expanding offerings outside of the typical sports car genre. The Turbo was the latest in a long line of super fast 911s, and was the first Turbo to employ both twin turbochargers and all-wheel drive. With 400 horsepower on tap, these cars were capable of running to 60 mph in under four seconds, making it one of the fastest cars of the era. This Turbo for sale in New Jersey looks sinister in black and represents the first year of the Turbo for the 993.
1996 Porsche 911 Turbo. Black on black leather. Only 33,917 miles. Rare collectible, looks stunning! Perfect color combination, 3M clear bra, H&R lowering springs, stainless steel exhaust tips, aluminum bezel dials, power seat package.
Condition: Unbelievable condition, runs and drives great. Paint is in excellent condition. Minor rock chips up front as can be expected but hardly noticeable. No accidents, clean auto check. Original tags throughout every panel. Non-smoker, wheels are in perfect condition. Garage queen.
Low mileage 993 Turbos have held their value well over time. Cars with under 30,000 miles can regularly bring $70,000 and higher. One must also keep in mind that the 1996 models differ from later 1997 and 1998 models, in that the later models had strengthened transmission shafts, a modifiable ECU and a passenger airbag shutoff sensor. While this car doesn’t have much more than 30,000 miles on the clock, there’s not much that makes it stand out amongst other mint Turbos on the market. I’d say the sweet spot for this car price wise would be in the $60,000 to $70,000 range.…
