1979 Porsche 911SC Backdate Hot Rod

I didn’t know exactly what to call this 911. I’ve sort of gone with how the seller has termed it as a 911SC Hot Rod, which I guess is accurate, but it’s also a backdated build since it now sports a long hood in place of the standard SC impact bumpers. Though unlike a lot of backdated SCs the goal here wasn’t to replicate the RS or RSR. So this one sort of stands separated from many of the rest and I actually appreciate that diverence.

With all of that out of the way, it looks phenomenal! There’s a great mix of subtlety and flash here that comes together really well. It also appears to be very well done in all regards. We come across a lot of these builds and they come in a variety of levels of execution. From what we can see here, this is one of the better ones.

Tuner Tuesday: 1984 Porsche 930 RUF BTR Conversion

The last two weeks we’ve looked at the wilder side of the Porsche tuner world with cars from Gemballa and RWB. This week we’ll go a little more traditional with the styling and make a return to RUF. RUF likely is the most well known and highly regarded in the Porsche world, so much so that RUF is not just a tuner, but a manufacturer utilizing blank Porsche chassis for its cars. In some ways, RUF is the inverse of RWB. Where RWB goes over the top with styling and leaves the performance mostly alone, RUF keeps the styling changes somewhat minimal (at least from the perspective of how much they depart from a 911 itself) and goes over the top with performance upgrades. Over the years they’ve produced some blistering fast machines capable of competing with the best cars in the world. Even capable of competing with the likes of Porsche’s own 959.

The one we see the most often is the BTR and that’s just what we have here. However, this is not one of the very rare RUF VIN BTRs, but one of the more common converted examples, which in this case was based off of a 1984 Porsche 930. That’s a nice base with which to begin and with the RUF upgrades you get a car that can make even the prodigious 930 seem tame.

1961 Porsche 356B 1600 S Reutter Cabriolet

It is quite rare to see most any vintage car on the roads. I think that shouldn’t be much of a surprise. It means, of course, when we do see one it can be a nice treat. The Porsche 356 is just such an example and until recently I could not have told you the last time I actually saw one being driven. (I won’t count the dilapidated one I saw in a mechanic’s parking) A few weeks ago it just so happens that one drove right by me. I could hear it coming and as most any car enthusiast does my ears immediately perked up as I knew from the sound that something pretty interesting was approaching. I was delighted to see it was a 356 Coupe, and even better it looked in phenomenal shape. While in pictures the 356 Coupe can look a little bubbly and almost rotund, in person the proportions look perfect with little wasted material.

Since then I’ve been keeping an eye out for a nice 356 to come up for sale. While not a Coupe, I really like this one. This is a Royal Blue 1961 Porsche 356B 1600 S Reutter Cabriolet with Light Grey interior. The condition looks quite good and the exterior color is fantastic. Like a lot of bright colors this one shows wonderfully on the 356.

1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet

Previously I featured a 930 with a Marine Blue exterior over a Linen interior. Here we’re going to sort of turn that inside out. We now have the Linen on the outside and we have the dark blue serving as accents to the interior and the convertible top. It’s not a full reversal of colors since the primary interior color is light grey. It’d have been fantastic if the interior were all dark blue though. I can imagine that would have provided for a very captivating contrast.

This is a 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet, located in California, with 83,478 miles on it. The color combination isn’t bad, but it is a bit monotone. As we can see, when used as an exterior color Linen isn’t quite silver, nor is it quite white or gold. It’s a little bit of all of them. In the sun it shines really well, but it still looks good in the shade. All together it doesn’t look too bad, though it is very much on the refined/elegant side of the spectrum. There isn’t much that’s aggressive about this 911, but that’s ok.

Moss Green Metallic 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

At the end of last week I closed with a Marine Blue over Linen 930, a color combination both attractive and rare. Perhaps even more rare than we might first think. I wasn’t sure the value was quite right, but the car itself looked really nice.

Here I will continue along those same lines with another darker metallic exterior that we rarely see. The mileage is a good bit lower and I suspect the price will be a good bit higher. Whether the value again is off remains to be seen, but this 930 itself looks in great shape and will certainly attract attention. This is a Moss Green Metallic 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe, located in St. Louis, with a contrasting dark green and black interior and just 19,810 miles on it.

Tuner Tuesday: 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Turbo RAUH-Welt Begriff

Last week: Gemballa. This week: RAUH-Welt Begriff. We might as well look at something from the two most divisive Porsche tuners in back-to-back weeks right? I said in last week’s post that I don’t mind over the top designs from tuners and along those lines I typically enjoy the work we see from RWB. While many don’t like them, Akira Nakai’s builds do follow a line that is recognizable within Porsche’s own racing designs. Of course, those are purpose built race cars and RWB builds street cars. None the less, the look itself is not necessarily off base.

And here lies the primary criticism of many RWB designs: they are all show and no go. For many, in fact most, of their builds that is true; RWB focuses much more on the appearance of the car than on making it faster. This build addresses that criticism, and it addresses it pretty significantly.

Paint-to-Sample Lemon Yellow 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

I’ve been looking at a few yellow 911s over the past week and if we add in Carter’s Speed Yellow 968 then these bright yellow Porsches have been a little bit of a theme. I’m going to raise the bar some now and while I know it’s tough to top the rarity of that 968 I think this one certainly tries its best. We’ll definitely be raising the bar on price.

Here we see a beautiful paint-to-sample Lemon Yellow 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS. I’ve featured a few examples of the Carrera RS lately as now that it has passed the 25 year waiting period I’ve seen them come up for sale more frequently. It is one of my all-time favorite 911s, perhaps even being my all-time favorite though that seems to change with the season. Regardless, they are spectacular machines and this looks to be a spectacular example.

Price: Inquire

In 1992, Porsche produced a super-lightweight, rear-wheel-drive only version of the 964 dubbed Carrera RS for the European market only. It was based on Porsche’s 911 “Carrera Cup” race car and harked back to the 2.7 and 3.0 RS and RSR models. It featured a revised version of the standard engine, titled M64/03 internally, with an increased power output of 260 bhp (194 kW; 264 PS) and lightweight flywheel coupled to the G50/10 transmission with closer ratios, asymmetrical Limited Slip Differential and steel syncromesh. A track-oriented suspension system with 40 mm (1.6 in) lower ride height, stiffer springs, shocks and adjustable stabilizer bars without power steering (RHD UK cars did have power steering).

1988 Porsche 930 Coupe

I’m going to take a short break from my value shopping to present a 930 that I like quite a bit. It is not a good value. It is, however, a color combination I like a lot and don’t see that often.

Here we have a Marine Blue Metallic 1988 Porsche 930 Coupe, located in Kentucky, with what I believe is a Linen leather interior and 53,285 miles on it. The ad is very short on the details and while I don’t mind a concise ad a 50K mile 930 isn’t really a candidate for such a lack. So there’s legwork to be done on the part of any interested buyer, but it’s a really attractive car.

This is a beautiful 1988 Porsche 930 Turbo. Low mileage at 53,285. Runs and drives great. Exterior is a rare marine blau metallic. Interior shows normal wear for its age. This is a very special car and will not last long!

Every time I see a Linen interior I wonder if it’s a complete pain to keep clean. Some of the photos here kind of show the sort of thing that would worry me! Generally speaking this interior looks quite good and in good shape. There don’t appear to be any major problems like tears, scuffs, or cracks in the dash. It looks very clean. But a light colored interior like this will show dirt and imperfections much more than darker colors, even much more than tan, and here we see the evidence of that. Given how close up the pictures appear to be I don’t think it’s the sort of thing we’d get too upset about.…

1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

The 911SC isn’t the only model where you can find decent value among air-cooled 911s. The 964 too has typically shown itself as another option. Admittedly it does get more difficult and, of course, you are going to pay a little more for comparable mileage and condition, but you’re getting more car so we can’t be too surprised or upset by that. The top end of the 964 market, especially for the many limited-production models Porsche released at the time, stretches well above that of any 911SC. But the regular cars, there we can find something.

The one we see here, an Amethyst Pearl Metallic 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe located in North Carolina, fits into a similar category as yesterday’s 911SC in that it should be a reasonable value in theory, yet currently is priced too high. It’s up for auction with no reserve, which provides some hope of appropriate cost, but the starting bid has been set too high to induce any bidding. With time that should come down – or with the start set at zero – and then we’ll have a chance.

The exterior and interior present beautifully. The Amethyst Pearl Metallic paint reflects very nicely. New center reflector and brake lights. The cashmere beige interior has remained all original except the stereo (original is also included).

1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe

I said I wanted to look a some cheaper Porsches this week and now I’m finally getting around to that. As is many times the case that means checking out a 911SC. While not every 911SC is inexpensive – last week’s Talbot Yellow Coupe being a prime example – the majority of them lie very much on the value side of the air-cooled spectrum. Once we move away from the very-low mileage examples our choices expand a good bit. They’re also fantastic cars! I don’t want to say the 911SC was the savior of the 911, but after the difficulties Porsche suffered with consistent reliability of the mid-70s models the SC did return the marque to its heralded status and, along with its successor the 3.2 Carrera, cemented the 911 as Porsche’s top dog. That wasn’t always destined to be the case.

The one we see here, a Slate Blue Metallic 1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe located in Los Angeles, fits into my reasonably priced parameters more in theory than in current practice. The BIN price is on the high end and it’ll need to come down before we can truly consider this a good value. But as current bidding on this auction suggests, its true value should be a good bit below this BIN price so with some patience we should get there.

True, 2 owner car – this car is better than a barn find; it was meticulously cared for throughout the years Was kept indoors and only driven on sunny days since the mid 1980’s. Look at the pictures closely, it is nearly impossible to find a car so original, and in this condition.
