Arrow Blue 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

This car really checks a lot of the boxes for my own personal preferences. So I hope others like it just as much! This is an Arrow Blue 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa, located in New York, with black interior and 105,627 miles on it. The 911SC remains my favorite of the 911 models, not necessarily the best model but my favorite, it’s a Targa, which I love, and it has a bright blue exterior. As far as best 911SCs I’ve featured this one should run close to the Signal Yellow 911SC I featured almost exactly one year ago. I guess this is the time of year for selling my preferred beautiful 911s!

1993 Porsche 911 RS America

I’ll say straightaway that I have a couple questions about this 1993 Porsche 911 RS America. I also think it’s priced a good bit too high, though that’s a problem with a lot of RS Americas we see come up for sale. We’ll get to those questions though. First, the good stuff.

As you can probably see this one has received a full wrap in Martini Racing livery. If you were to imagine what a 964 wearing such livery at the track would look like this is probably it. And it looks great! The Martini striping really works well over the curves of the rear quarters. I’d want to remove the stickers for the dealer, but otherwise I think this conveys its intent well. This RS America also is one of the low-option examples. There were only four options available (A/C, sunroof, radio, and limited-slip differential) so none of them have lots of options, but still for a car that’s supposed to be stripped down a lot of them seem to have those things added back. This one clearly does not have the radio or sunroof. We don’t get a clear look at the option sticker and the ad leaves us blind, but I think the only option chosen was the LSD. For those in search of the sportiest RSA out there this one checks those boxes.

1993 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

I can never really begrudge sellers who are overly effusive about the cars they are selling, but sometimes it does frustrate me. In most cases, this applies to cars I really like, but which I feel are being presented in the wrong way. (I have a similar frustration whenever I see an ad from Toyota talking about how sporty the new Camry feels.) But I do get it, they’re trying to sell something and appeal to certain emotions.

This 964, a Midnight Blue 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, falls into this category. I really like this 911; it looks great, the color combination is one that I really enjoy, and with a fairly recent engine rebuild we would hope it’s ready to roll and provide many more miles of excellent motoring. But it also has almost 150K miles on it so why should I care about collector appeal?

Paint-to-Sample 1983 Porsche 930

Normally a Paint-to-Sample 930 would get my heart all aflutter, but this one, while indeed PTS, doesn’t quite stir my emotions quite as much. The reason should be obvious: that rare paint-to-sample color is black metallic, not exactly the most unusual choice along the spectrum. There aren’t a lot of black metallic 930s out there relative to its non-metallic black counterparts so even if the color doesn’t seem particularly rare it’s not very common either. But still, I was surprised to find out this was Paint-to-Sample.

With that bit of confusion out-of-the-way this is still a pretty nice looking 930. As those familiar will realize immediately, this is a RoW model since the 930 was not available in the US in 1983. The mileage is pretty low at 48,410 and it appears to be in excellent condition.

Tahoe Blue Metallic 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo

I always find it difficult to find 964 Turbos in interesting colors. Which is weird because of all the 911 models I feel like the 964 is the range I think had the largest number of unusual colors available. Porsche always has offered quite a variety, but it seemed with the 964 they let themselves go even further. But it seems buyers stuck with the more traditional options.

Here we have an obvious exception: a Tahoe Blue Metallic 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Brooklyn, with a color-to-sample Linen leather interior offset by a healthy dose of rootwood accents and 78,952 miles on it. I’m not very familiar with Tahoe Blue Metallic and this one is said to be 1 of only 3 Turbos equipped in this color combination. The extensive options list likely takes it to the top of that already exclusive company.

1965 Porsche 911 Sunroof Coupe

For the second of my somewhat disheveled 911s we see one that may be in slightly lesser overall condition, but still makes for a much more interesting model. Unlike yesterday’s Signal Orange 911T this one is not just about the color, but rather it’s about all the little details. And on a ’65 911 it is all those little details that consistently brings us back to them.

Here we have a Signal Red 1965 Porsche 911, located in New York, with a beautiful black interior with pepita seat inserts. It’s just come out of long term storage so while it may not be the prototypical barn find, it does fall somewhat within that realm.

1970 Porsche 911T Targa

Today and tomorrow I’ve got a couple cars to post that are quite a bit less pristine than what I typically like to feature. Both will need some work, but each provides a nice base with which to begin that work. And, more importantly, both are interesting enough that there should be a desire from some to return them to their full glory.

I’ll begin with this one: a Signal Orange 1970 Porsche 911T Targa, located in California, with 126,868 miles on it. This one is all about the color as it’s one of the best on an early 911. That it’s a 911T in need of work also should mean that the selling price falls very much on the reasonable side of the spectrum. At least, it should. Will it?

1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

I’ve featured a lot of 930s lately. More to the point: a lot of early 930s, especially the original 3.0-liter models. Before moving on to some other 911s I want to look at one more. This one didn’t make my roundup from the weekend because I mostly was searching for bright and unique colors for that post. This one is black so it wouldn’t have made the cut. But it’s quite unique in its own way so worthy of its own post.

While less unique black on black 911s and 930s have their own appeal and their own cadre of fans. For some buyers nothing other than black will do. When used as the color for a car like the 930 that exterior matches the persona of the car itself. Nothing here is to be trifled with. So the color may be common, but that doesn’t mean there’s little appeal.

This particular example, a 1977 Porsche 930 located in California, appears to have lead a somewhat forgotten life such that it sits now with a mere 18,800 miles on it. At some point in its distant past it was locked away in storage until “found” in 2005. It appears to be mostly original condition and is said to be numbers matching.

Early Porsche 930 Roundup

Earlier this week I featured a very pretty Emerald Green 1976 Porsche 930. As I then looked around through other auctions I realized it wasn’t the only early 930 currently up for sale in an interesting color. In fact, there were quite a few. It doesn’t make much sense to feature each individually, as much I might like each one. Thus, roundup time!

These aren’t the only early 930s currently for sale, but they are the ones I thought looked the best. They are a fairly diverse group coming in colors both light and dark, vibrant and subdued, and with mileage ranging from the very low (15,054) to somewhat high (115,826). Three of them are Paint-To-Sample and the one that isn’t comes in one of our favorite colors on Porsches from this period. And we even have both engine sizes represented. None of these are boring.

So without further adieu, let’s take a look at these great machines:

1998 Porsche 911 Carrera S

There are plenty of times when I feel like I feature too many very expensive 911s. The problem, of course, is the 911 isn’t a terribly inexpensive car to start with so even the pricing is somewhat relative. But really it’s just that many of these high-priced examples are very hard to pass up. Guess where this one falls? I couldn’t pass it up.

We’re sticking with the theme of interesting colors that we’ve been running with across the site this week and here we have one of Porsche’s most interesting darker shades. This is a Vesuvio Metallic 1998 Porsche 911 Carrera S, located in Cleveland, with a mere 4,848 miles on it. So we have a Carrera S – one of the most desirable 993 models – in a very rare and striking color with ridiculously low mileage. That’s not all. It also came well optioned with sport seats, sport suspension, and the factory aerokit (along with a few other options). The total package makes for an extremely rare 993 and one that should attract tons of attention.

What’s not to love? It’s $170K. That’s A LOT!
