Wednesday Wheels – Super Stars from Porsche

If you thought last week’s BBS post was a bit of a basket case, today we’re going to look at another popular style of wheel – this time, 5 spoke wheels that are always popular on Porsches. I’ve picked some of the most popular styles that have adorned several different generations so hopefully there is something you like here. Let’s start out with a great set of “Sport Classic” Fuchs replicas:

The Sport Classics are one of the best looking OEM wheels Porsche has put on their newer cars; as a throwback they’re a fantastic update of the original, but also look modern and aggressive, pulling the evergreen “911” into the current century. Like all Porsche wheels they’re pricey, but this set comes with centercaps and tires – something often missing from Porsche wheels for sale, as we’ll see. Still too rich or new for your blood? How about this set of OEM BBS-made 911 Carrera wheels?

Thank you.

These are a great looking, simple wheel that is well built by BBS. I really thought these freshened up the 911 design when they debuted and made it look modern but also lighter. With included (and expensive) tires and centercaps, as Porsche wheels go these are a deal. Still a bit too pricey for you, but you’d like something from the same generation? How about these Carrera 4S “Twists”?

Talk about a stellar deal; with centercaps included these 18″ wheels with light use are only $650. As Porsche wheels go, that’s basically giving them away. These would ideally suit a 996 or 997 widebody, with an aggressive stance and clean look. Were you looking for something a bit older? How about this set of 993-era “Cup” wheels, brand new in box from Porsche:

Year: 1989-1994
Model: Turbo Cup

Up for sale is an extremely rare set of factory Porsche OEM Turbo Cup wheels, for a Porsche 911 Turbo ( 965 ) . These are brand new, in the box, never been mounted.

REAR WHEELS:

While I love the originality of these wheels and this design on the 964s, I have to say I really liked the Speedline-made multi-piece Turbo 3.6 wheels a lot more. Despite this, if you’re in the restoration market for a 965, these might just be the wheels for you. In typical Porsche wheel fashion, there are no tires or centercaps and they’re very expensive. Are you like me and prefer the look of the Speedlines? Have an older 930? How about these Ruf Speedlines then?

The Ruf Speedlines are one of the best period-correct modifications you can do to a 911 or 930, or even a 944 Turbo. They’re not cheap, but boy are they good looking wheels. They’re absolutely one of my favorites and I like the inclusion of both tires and centercaps here, though I’d prefer “Ruf” caps to make it correct. Still not your cup of tea but in the right time period? How about some original Fuchs?

Motorsport Monday: 2004 Porsche 911 GT3

509

Last week on Motorsport Monday I wrote up a 1995 BMW M3 that was ready to hit the track; for under $20,000, it sure was a track weapon on a budget. But if your budget is a little bit higher, the natural choice for the German car fan is to look towards Porsches, and Porsche’s out-of-the-box race car, the GT3. We’ve written up a few GT3s of various generations in the past few months, but the screaming deal in 911s right now are the first to hit U.S. shores, the 2004 models. Today’s model was a streetable GT3 that has been modeled after the more expensive, complicated and pricey to run Cup models, and like last week’s M3 looks ready to willing to hit the track in the proper Speed Yellow:

Like most of the cars we have featured in Motorsport Monday, add up the build sheet and you’ll quickly see that the price of this car is much less than just what it would cost to build. Even the three sets of Hoosiers alone would set you back the best part of $5,000 in tires shipped and mounted. Dawes and GMG both have great records for building these cars; get this to the track and it won’t be long before you’re flying. For less than a third of the price of a new Cup car, this car would offer 90% plus of the thrills without the overhead and operating expense. The 996 might not be the prettiest 911 ever made, but it’s probably the best bang for the buck in the esteemed 911 world right now.

1989 Porsche 911 Speedster

In the world of affordable 911s, the Speedster is not one of them, nor has it ever been. Known as option M503, the Speedster appeared for the 1989 model year only, with only 2,104 produced. Development on the model began in 1983 at the direction of Dr. Helmuth Bott, the research and development head at Porsche. The introduction of the 911 Cabriolet that year provided an optimal basis for a stripped down, low cowl version in the spirit of the 356 Speedster. It would also serve as a bookend to close the 3.2 Carrera chapter before the dawn of the 1990s brought four-wheel drive, twin-turbocharged engines and later, the demise of the air-cooled engine. This Speedster for sale in North Carolina is a well optioned example finished in Grand Prix White over red leather.

From the moment the 1989 911 Speedster was brought to market, it was truly beloved. After a 30-year wait, Porsche brought back the “Speedster” with this stylish, high-performance successor to the 356. With a very limited number of cars (824) sent to the United States, the beautiful and powerful Speedster was an instant collector’s car. Road Scholars is delighted to offer this impressive, heavily-optioned example featuring low mileage, original paint, gorgeous original red leather interior, and a well-documented provenance.

3. Three spoke steering wheel with horn button and enamel crest
4. Leather shift cover
5. Leather shift knob
6. Steering wheel with raised hub

19. Luggage compartment “Black Velour”
20. Leather Piping to sample
21. Seat stitching in black
22. Leather welting color to sample

A fully documented, low mileage 911 Speedster such as this won’t come cheap, but closing in on $150,000 is a bit steep. Most 911 Speedsters you come across will be in good condition, as collectors and enthusiasts alike knew from the get go that these cars were destined to become classics. It is still possible to find a choice example of a Speedster for between $90,000 and $125,000. One wonders if the days of the under $30,000 3.2 Carrera are numbered. If so, will the Speedster variant soon move deeper into six figure territory?

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera

For my 2nd 993 of the week I’ve chosen this 1996 Carrera, which stood out to me for one very obvious reason: it’s Speed Yellow. This might be the only standard Carrera I have ever seen in Speed Yellow. I’ve come across a few other variants in this color (Turbos, the GT2, Cabriolets), but not a bog-standard 993. It’s a flashy color so it shouldn’t be surprising that it might not be hugely popular amongst buyers choosing the Carrera. Regardless, I love a Yellow on Black car (cue Wiz Khalifa) and with the base Carrera toning down the flash just a bit, this makes for a fantastic combination.

The rest of this car comes across just as well as the color. The mileage is very reasonable, the interior and exterior appear in very good condition, and the seller claims a fully documented service history. The asking price certainly isn’t low, but for a well maintained 993 in a rare color, it isn’t especially high either. For someone who might be a fan of this color, but would prefer something either a little less flashy or a bit less expensive than what a 993 Turbo might set you back, this car should present an excellent opportunity.

1997 Porsche 993 C2S

Though lately I’ve been writing up various 911 variants from the ’70s and ’80s, my mind keeps turning to the 993 and I have been telling myself to feature one or two of them here at GCFSB. So I’ll begin with this one: an stunningly beautiful 1997 993 C2S painted Guards Red with Black leather interior, located in California. Offered with either all-wheel drive as the Carrera 4S or rear-wheel drive as the Carrera S, the S version of the 993 had a lower suspension and featured the wider rear fenders of the 993 Turbo while remaining naturally aspirated. It also retained the standard moveable rear spoiler rather than taking on the Turbo’s whale tale. While some prefer the spoiler, I’ve always preferred the whale tale. Either way, with its wider body, the Carrera S had a much more aggressive look compared with its slimmer Carrera siblings and for many enthusiasts presents a much more desirable overall look.

I think this car speaks for itself. It’s eye-catching and appears to have been very well cared for. I actually prefer the multi-spoke wheels it’s currently wearing over the standard 5-spoke wheels so really I don’t think I’d change anything. 993 values seem destined to continue their upward trajectory and an excellent C2S in Guards Red such as this one should have no trouble following that trend.

1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition

I’ve written about a few 911SCs here at GCFSB recently that were typically very well maintained, original, and very pretty. The SC was the first 911 I had any experience with so those models tend to be the examples that immediately draw my attention. This time I’ll go with one that’s a little bit more unique though not quite in perfect condition. Here we have a 1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition located in Toronto. There were 408 Weissach Edition cars produced for the US market in 1980 as a testament to Porsche’s Motorsport team housed in Weissach, Germany. These cars featured either a Metallic Black or Platinum Metallic (like the one featured here) exterior to go along with a Doric Grey leather interior fitted with Burgundy carpeting. Other touches included a front chin spoiler, whale tail, and Platium-painted Fuchs. As of its last update, the Weissach registry shows 61 surviving cars.

You are bidding on a 1980 Porsche 911 SC Weissach Edition. For those of you who are not familiar, the 1980 Weissach Edition was a limited run of 406 cars built to honor the Porsche Research and Development center located in Weissach Germany. This car was only sold the US and they came in just 2 exclusive exterior colors, Platinum Metallic or Black Metallic, 203 of each colour. They both featured indentical inteiors of Doric Gray Full leather, rust carpets and piping and sport seats. On the exterior they featured a 930 style rear spoiler, front chin spoiler, 15×6 and 15×7 rear forged Fuchs alloys painted in platinum metallic. Most came with a sunroof. This car is one of three known sunroof delete cars in this limited edition. According to the 911 Weissach Registry, only 70 or so of these cars are known to survive.

Very good condition for a 33 year old car. Original paint and interior. Drives really well. Serviced and maintained by Hunter Motorsports, a specialist in air cooled Porsches. Last serviced in May 2013. Receipts for all work performed over the past two years, including new brakes, new igition rotor and cables, new oil transfer tubes and sump gaskets. Odometer stuck on 98785 miles shortly after I purchased the vehicle two years ago. Have only put about 2500 miles in the car since. I have purchased the gear wheel to repair the odometer, but not yet installed it. WIll leave that to the new owner. No rust or leaks. All original “survivor” car. Presently has AC compressor removed (they never really work and it’s heavy) and has an after market radio/CD player, but I have the original parts and Blaupunkt radio casstte that will accompany the car. New Falken tires on the original lightweight Fuchs. If I were keeping the car I would recover the front seats and the dash top. A set of after market wheels (Enkei, BBS copies), painted to match and also with Bridgestone new tires are also included in the sale, as is a Porsche certificate of authenticity, the original owners manual and service book, air pump and toolkit. Also have a new OEM front hood to bumper seal or “smile”, that I have yet to fit that will be included with the car.

Please ask any questions before bidding and do not bid unless you intend to buy. Car is being sold “as is where is”.

$1,000 deposit by PayPal or wire transfer within 24 hours of auction closing. Balance due within 3 days of auction closing or on pickup whichever comes first. Cash or cash equivalent only.

Pick up and shipping is purchasers responsibility, however I will assist as much as I can. Originally a US car (Palm Springs, CA and then Fort Worth, TX), so should be no issue re-importing to the US. Car is also listed locally and so I reserve the right to end the auction early.

509

While I love black cars, I actually prefer the platinum exterior of these cars rather than the black, in part because it matches so well with that beautiful interior. The interior’s burgundy accents complement the grey leather very well and provide a fairly unique look to counter the more traditional single-color interiors of most cars. And I think it looks fantastic. Because the modifications were entirely aesthetic, a Weissach Edition, though rare, doesn’t tend to add much value to these cars. A really good example that is low mileage and in excellent mechanical condition will fetch a little bit of a premium over a standard 911SC, but a more well-used example such as the one we have here will only see a premium if a particular buyer is really struck by the unique color palette. I don’t intend to suggest that this car has been ragged, on the contrary it looks to be in fine shape and the mileage is reasonable for a car more than 30 years old, but I think the Buy It Now is a bit high as I’d expect this car to sell a bit closer to $20,000. Regardless, this is still a good looking car and with less than a quarter of the original allotment of Weissach Editions surviving, it’s a car that may get a bit more rare with each passing year.

1984 Porsche 930

The Porsche 930 is no stranger to these pages. Many of us hold in high regard the various 911 iterations produced from 1978-1989, from the debut of the SC until the final 3.2 Carrera rolled off the assembly line. Add in a turbocharged 3.3 liter engine and wider rear fenders and the 930 married a classically aggressive aesthetic with more than adequate power. These cars rewarded attentive driving and that’s why we love them. For a few years in the mid-80s, Porsche withheld the 930 from the US market over concerns about meeting stricter US emissions requirements. The car was still sold in Europe, however, which allowed cars such as the one featured here to make their way over to US shores. This 1984 Porsche 930 is located in New Jersey and comes in the always excellent red on black color combination.

No reserve! The seller is clearly very excited about this car and it’s hard to blame him. The contrast of the black Fuchs wheels with the red paint is always a favorite and in general this car presents very well given that it’s seen almost 80,000 miles. A well documented 930 in original condition that has been well cared for doesn’t come on offer too frequently without reserve. Right now bidding has this one up to $38,988 and I’ll have an eye on where this car ends up. As it stands, this is a beautiful example of a fantastic ’80s sports car.

1977 Porsche 911 ’73 RS Replica

The 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS is an icon of the motoring world, and for good reason. The RS combined a lighter weight and a more powerful engine with improved suspension and braking to produce a car suitable for racing and began the 911’s stellar career in the annals of road racing history. Add to this performance the classic long hood 911 design and you have a winner in nearly every respect. Naturally, buying a Carrera RS now is a very expensive proposition and the remaining models are found mostly in the hands of collectors who have little interest in putting additional miles on the car. Enter the replica: you get the looks and the performance, but with a lower cost of entry and less concerns over maintaining collectability. Which brings us to the car featured here: a 1977 Porsche 911 transformed into the appearance of a 1973 911 Carrera RS with a built 3.0 liter engine reminiscent of the 3.0 liter RSR of that period.

PORSCHE 73RS REPLICA

The original chassis is a 1977 Porsche 911S VIN# 9117201571, in excellent condition, devoid of any rust, damage, dents. The car has never been hit or damaged in any way:

This is a very aggressively tuned replica; it is well equipped for the track and, should you be so inclined, it is streetable as the car is titled and registered in the State of Florida. There are no track miles on the car/engine. The car has neither heat nor AC in its present form. The Paint is good. And has a couple of imperfections.

There has been approximately $70000 invested in the car as it sits. Reproducing the engine in the car will set you back $30,000.

The stock engine was removed. It was replaced with a special build performance motor. Steel 8” flares were added, steel front fenders have been retained.

The car has been stored for the last 10 years, but serviced annually and occasionally driven to keep it in tune. You can drive it home. This Car is Wicked Fast.

I really wish this car had a set of Fuchs instead of the Fikse wheels it’s wearing now, but otherwise it appears to be very well sorted. No one will confuse it with an original RS, but I don’t think that’s this car’s intention. It’s an homage to a great design with an engine that takes it to another level. With 235 hp at the wheels and a 2300 lb weight, this car should be pretty quick and corner beautifully. The purple exterior paint provides it with a rare color that, frankly, I think looks fantastic on this design. Determining the value of a car such as this one is really a matter of finding a buyer for whom this car presses all the right buttons. While the purchase price will be far lower than that of an original ’73 Carrera RS, I doubt this would be a cheap car to run if the owner plans to drive it frequently. But, a Carrera RS with an RSR engine was never intended to be the stuff of backyard DIYers. So as Ferris Bueller famously quipped, “If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.”

1986 Porsche 911 Turbo

If you asked me what car of the 1980s that captured the optimism and momentum of this decade, the Porsche 911 Turbo would be it. A little over a decade in since this wild Porsche had gone on sale and it had become a legend. This car was revered and feared for its power, as it was never an easy car to handle with all that power swung out behind the rear axle. Those who mastered the nuances of this car would be rewarded. While most people would be satisfied with the 282 horsepower the standard Turbo provided, plenty of folks tuned up this Stuttgart hot rod to even greater heights. Such is the case with this 1986 911 Turbo for sale from our reader, Jim, in Jacksonville, Florida.

Year: 1986
Model: 911 Turbo
Engine: 3.4 liter flat-6

With almost 400 horsepower at the rear wheels, this Turbo is sure to give some later air-cooled turbos a run for their money. Given the mileage of this Turbo, I’d say it’s priced rather accurately given that most good 911 Turbos of this era will start in the high $30,000 to $50,000 range.

Tuner Tuesday: 1997 911 Andial Twin Plug Twin Turbo

I find it extraordinarily sad that this year saw the nearly unnoticed passing of one of the great Porsche tuning firms, ANDIAL. If you’re newer to the scene, ANDIAL probably doesn’t mean much to you, but if you grew up in the 1980s or were a fan of motorsports then they were one of the top tuning firms pushing out some of the fastest Porsches in the world – they were really the U.S. equivalent of Ruf. They backed that performance up with race-winning efforts – ANDIAL became the defacto 962 race engine supplier in the United States, and racked up an impressive string of both prototype and GT racing wins and championships. Though they were very well respected, ANDIAL downsized as the trio of owners aged and then passed away, culminating in the retirement this past February of the last remaining founder, Dieter Inzenhofer, Porsche Motorsports North America bought the name, but with undisclosed plans to use it, we’ll just have to wait and see. Coming across an ANDIAL tuned car is something of a rare treat, and for the 993 they cooked up a twin-plug, twin turbo 3.8 motor that was just a monster. Today’s example is one of the best prepared in the world:

Car History
Here is the information I have been able to glean about the car.
This highly optioned car was purchased in the Chicago area by car collector John Pizer. He immediately had it flat-bedded to the Andial facility with only delivery miles on the car.
The full Andial 3.8 liter twin plug conversion was performed at an estimated cost of 55-60 thousand dollars.Andial Twin Plug
A few years later the car was purchased by collector Amir Fahti in Calabasas with around 4000 miles on the clock.
In 2007 I purchased the car from Mr. Fahti with 27,181 miles on the clock. Unfortunately Mr. Fahti had lost the build sheet on the car. Andial confirms that this is one of the 19 certified 3.8 liter twin plug conversions, of which only 17 remain. Andial Registry

Over the next few years I had Michael Schatz MKS Performancein Camarillo fettle the car into tip top condition, replacing the front differential, viscous coupler, clutch accumulator, steering rack and installing a set of GT2 uprights and tie rods, new hood shocks, breeze constant torque clamps on the intercooler hoses and forge diverter valves. I removed the k40 radar detector and installed functional front brake cooling ducts and a larger Cargraphics oil cooler. I installed yellow rear seat belts to match the front seat belts. Finally, a complete corner balance and alignment and rake was performed.

In 2011 elected to make this car into my vision of the ultimate street version of a GT2.
I contacted 1998 IMSA GT2 champion Jochen Rohr who generously supplied me with the rear wing and carbon fibre deck-lid plus the BBS wheels he had left over from that race team. I sourced a brand new OEM European narrow-body front bumper and some hand laid fender flares and commissioned Ed Palmer at Kundensport to perform the conversion.

The car is everything I could have hoped for. It looks fabulous in my eyes. It rides very smoothly. The GT2 uprights and tie rods have minimized bump steer and the ride is not harsh in any way but it still handles brilliantly. The paint is exceptional. It is the best rding 993 I have ever driven. I clay barred it using Final Detail as the lubricant over a weekend and it presents very well indeed. It is nearly impossible to put the car cover on by yourself because it keeps shooting off as the paint is so smooth. Obviously the car is brutally fast but also very tractable. The larger pistons on the RS rear calipers match the 14 inch front brakes very well. A minor service and detailing was performed last week.

With the passing of Arnold in 2011 and the purchase of Andial by Porsche Motorsports in 2012, I believe no more of these cars will be built and a stellar chapter in Porsche history has closed.

Nits to pick:

There are a few rock chips on the front.

The front tires can rub if the wheel is turned to full lock at parking lot speeds.

The Thielert dual program street/race gas ecu is a bit unsophisticated and no longer supported. They need two revolutions of the crank to start the car and can run a little rough just off of idle. It occaisionally becomes “confused” and can cough and spit for a bit. Then it remembers it’s manners and clears up. It is not foolproof. You need to make sure you have 100 octane race gas in the tank before switching to the race gas setting or damage could occur.

There is a more modern Andial aproved ecu available, but you lose the dual programming capabilities. Having the “psychopath switch” under your left hand is just too much damn fun! As a result I elected to keep the dual program ecu and live with the very minor flaws.

The price may seem outrageous, but it’s in line with some of the Ruf cars. Although this is a bit of a home-brew combination of several different car looks, I think it pulls it off exceptionally well. The GT2 flares look perfect, the wheels look perfect, I love the understated color…I have to say, the only thing I’m not really a fan of is the seatbelts. Some of the technology in the engine tuning has progressed and the owner notes that this earlier multi-level Theilert computer has its hiccups, but depending on what you wanted to do this could be solved either somewhat expensively in a standalone programmable ECU or very expensively by sending it to PMNA to let them sort it out.

I don’t think the ANDIAL name really carries the weight of the name Ruf outside of the Porsche crowd, so my guess is that someone who is really in the 993 know is going to be the one to scoop this gem up. The price is probably realistic given the rarity and the modifications, but it’s a pretty narrow market for this car. You could replicate the look easily enough if you have deep pockets, but that motor is really something special. It’s a shame that we won’t be seeing any more from ANDIAL, but I do hope then name doesn’t fade away completely into obscurity. Given the choice between this car and a Ruf, I would have to think long and hard before plunking down my hoard of cash.
