1970 Porsche 911T Coupe

Porsche is well known for its long and storied road-racing history. That history defines the marque and in many ways serves as its guide. But there is a portion of their racing history that also includes forays into rally racing, most notably their entry in the Paris-Dakar Rally with the 953. While certainly a small part of their overall racing heritage, rallying provided another means for Porsche to display its racing prowess during the manufacturer’s early days, even if road racing ultimately would remain its primary venue. The car we have featured here found inspiration in some of those early rally cars: a 1970 Porsche 911T Coupe with a few exterior modifications to give it a distinctive, rally-esque, look.

1989 Porsche 911 Speedster

As the market for an air-cooled 911 continues to propel itself along the number of rare 1980’s variants we see coming up for sale appears to be increasing as well. Recently, we’ve seen a fairly large number of Slantnose 930s for sale and while there have been fewer we have also come across a number of Speedsters. There is a certain irony to all of this given that in most regards the 911SC and 3.2 Carrera of the ’80s represent some of the best values in the 911 line. The Slantnose and the Speedster, however, do not as most will easily sell for six figures. Here we have a Guards Red 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster with Black interior located in New York.

1989 Porsche 930 Slantnose Cabriolet

509

Another week, another Porsche 930 Slantnose for sale. Seems like they are everywhere, doesn’t it? As soon as the last Slantnose Cabriolet we featured went live, it sold within one day. If red was a bit too outlandish on that particular car, perhaps this 1989 930 Slantnose Cabriolet for sale from our reader Frank may be more to your liking. Painted in a more reserved Black over Linen combination, this car represents the final year for the 930 Turbo, the sole year to feature a 5-speed manual gearbox with the 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-6.

1973 Porsche 911E

I’m not going to belabor the point on this one, but rather simply would like to bring this auction to the attention of anyone who might be interested. Here we have an Ivory 1973 Porsche 911E Coupe with Green leather interior on auction with no reserve, which is something we rarely see with long-hood 911s these days. The provided pictures tell us little, but the seller claims to have more detailed photos that can be made available to prospective buyers. The car isn’t completely original as the engine has been built to 2.7 liter specifications and it’s had RS flares added, but otherwise the condition is reportedly good and it’s surely quite fun to drive.

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera

The 993 is for many a favorite. Stylistically, it shows the culmination of 30 years of subtle changes and tweaks, because while it no longer wore the classic 911 body it undeniably clung to those roots. The proportions were just right, the weight remained reasonably low and the engine provided the unmistakable clatter that could only be produced by an air-cooled engine. As the last of the air-cooled 911s, the 993 is an icon of an icon. The car featured here is a Black on Black 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in Oregon, with 6-speed manual transmission and a light 30,300 miles.

1991 Porsche 911 Turbo

Given the longevity of the classic 911 it seems somewhat odd how quickly both the 964 and also the 993 departed from the scene. The combined life span of the two models failed even to reach a decade. For the 964 especially, that relatively short time on the market has seemed to hold down prices as buyers clamor to own the last of the air-cooled 911s, the 993. The 964 Turbo, however, holds its own stake in the “last of the breed” marketplace, being the last rear-wheel-drive 911 Turbo produced (excluding, of course, the ultra-rare GT2). First released in 1990, the 964 retained the 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-six of the 930, but with power output raised to 315 hp and delivered to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. The car featured here is an Amazon Green Metallic 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Colorado, that has seen just north of 80K miles.

1977 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera

In what has become my own mini theme-week, we have come across another rare color 911, though with this car that color rarity is enhanced by it being a Turbo Carrera rather than a standard Carrera. Here we have an Ice Green 1977 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera with Tan interior and a very reasonable 60,632 miles, located in Florida. 1977 was the final year Porsche utilized a 3.0 liter turbocharged flat-six in the 930 and it is also one of the few years in which US cars were badged as a Turbo Carrera, rather than simply as a Turbo. Another minor difference is the whale tail, which was standard on 3.0 liter Turbos rather than what became the Tea Tray on the 3.3 liter Turbos with an air-to-air intercooler. So while these cars are down on power relative to the majority of 930s we come across they do possess their own uniqueness that separates them from the rest of the pack. The particular car here is further separated by the beautiful Ice Green exterior. It’s a fantastic metallic shade that contrasts well with the Black Fuchs wheels and one that we do not come across all that often.

1972 Porsche 911T

Rob is our resident Porsche nut here at GCFSB, but I had to save one 911 for myself this week. Growing up, my father had a picture of a green 911 set in a very pastoral setting hung on his office wall. I’d always admire that picture when I’d visit his work, his workspace peppered with various other petrolhead paraphernalia that made his colleagues offices look a bit bland. When I set eyes on this 1972 911T for sale in Minnesota, I instantly thought of that picture that hung in his office, which now happens to be his iPhone wallpaper. Some things never change, then. The 1972 911 is a curious year, as the oil tank was moved within the car’s wheelbase in an effort to improve handling. Thus, a 1972 911 can be easily distinguished by it’s oil filler door directly aft of the passenger door. This would last for one year, as it was reported many service stations were putting petrol in the oil tank.

1995 Porsche 911 Race Car

Race-prepped cars exist within their own market and are notoriously difficult to correctly evaluate and price. Much of this difficulty arises from the simple fact that many racers have specific preferences or builds in mind and it might be rare to come across a car that checks enough boxes to make the purchase worthwhile, at least at a cost that also makes sense to the seller. From a simple market perspective, in the case of vintage racers, there are usually a few transactions or other benchmarks upon which reasonable decision making can be based, but for a newer model such as this 1995 Porsche 911 there may be few relevant comparables. The 993 racer featured here falls in the middle ground of the race-prepped spectrum. While it has upgraded suspension and a fully race-prepped interior, it has retained its stock motor, though shorter gear ratios have been implemented to improve acceleration.

1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

The collector market has been in love with air-cooled Porsches for some time now. Make the car an air-cooled 911 Turbo and prices can really start to escalate. Thus, as the last model of the air-cooled 911 Turbo the 993 Turbo tends to be held in especially high regard. The 993 Turbo utilized a refined version of the 3.6 liter flat-six found in the 964 Carrera and strapped on twin turbochargers that raised power to more than 400 hp. It was also the first 911 Turbo to utilize all-wheel drive. Though the Carrera 4 had debuted with the introduction of the 964, Porsche chose to refrain from using that system for the 964 Turbo. Even with the added weight of the all-wheel drive system the 993 Turbo still tends to be quicker than the 964. These were Porsche’s final expression of their turbo-charged air-cooled boxer engine, which brings us to the car featured here: a Polar Silver 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo located in Florida.
