1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Widebody with 9,300 miles – REVISIT

The final year 964 Carrera 4 Widebody we featured back in June is back up for sale at the same price as before. These 964s are quite rare, this example being one of 238 produced. Will it fetch a premium over your standard 964 C4?

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

Coming on the heels of the Porsche 930, the 964 Turbo had big shoes to fill and fill them it did. Utilizing an refined version of the same 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-six that powered the 930, the 964 Turbo paired a prodigious powerplant with a redesigned body, which was almost entirely new while remaining faithful to the basic profile of the car. The 964 Turbo (and the 964 in general) wouldn’t be around long and the 3.3 liter version itself possessed an even shorter life-span. But it certainly played its role and continued to bring supercar levels or performance to the marque while Porsche developed a turbocharged version of the 964’s 3.6 liter engine. This all brings us to the car featured here, a 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Raleigh, NC, sitting at right around 77,800 miles.

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

It never fails: I spend a decent bit of time going through older variants of the 911 and then come across a basic 993 and am blown away by just how good it looks. You would think by now that would stop happening, but it’s a testament to the design that I’m still so enthralled by the look of these 911s. The shape is a perfect evolution of the original design and while Porsche would introduce with the 996 the more raked windshield that we still see today, I really like the balance of the design with the higher overall body line. It’s certainly not as aerodynamic, but to me it looks better and that’s part of the joy. This particular 993 comes from near the beginning of the model run: a Guards Red 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in Dallas, TX, with 71,101 miles and on auction with no reserve.

1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Continuing our theme for the week, here we another 3.2 Carrera Coupe, but now from the earlier years of their production. This is where we really begin to enter value territory for these cars. The introduction of the G50 transmission in 1987 marked the end for the 915 5-speed transmission after a 15 year run. With torque gradually increasing during the 911’s life the 915 continually had to be reworked so as to keep up with the increased stresses placed upon it by the engine and heavier chassis. Like with many things in the auto industry, eventually it became more cost effective simply to switch to a newer unit rather than continue to revise and upgrade the previous model. The 915 had served its purpose and helped make the 911 the driver’s car that so many continue to love and today a 915-equipped 3.2 Carrera comes at a discount relative to a similar quality model from later in the run. This Guards Red 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe comes from the first year of 3.2 Carrera production and is a European model, which means you get a few more horsepower from the 3.2 liter flat-six (231 rather than 207 hp).

1987 Porsche 911 Carrera

It’s time to turn our attention back to the 3.2 Carrera and check in on the market for these excellent cars. The 3.2 Carrera, along with the very similar 911SC, remains one of my favorite variants of the 911 for reasons that defy the logic of performance and even appearance. These were the Carreras of my youth and I still feel a great deal of excitement when I see one on the street. For a time they also represented the best values on the 911 market, but with the general rise in values of the air-cooled 911 it has become increasingly difficult to find one at a good price. Without the seller coming down on the price here, this 1987 Guards Red Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe won’t set anyone’s heart aflutter for its value, but it still represents an excellent looking example of the breed. 1987 was the first year the G50 5-speed transmission was offered on these cars so sellers are always seeking a premium.

1973 Porsche 911T Coupe – Revisit

The beautiful Gemini Blue 1973 Porsche 911T we featured back in July is back up for another reserve auction. Last time bidding reaching $45,200, which did not meet the seller’s reserve, so we’ll see if this time it can reach a selling price.

1969 Porsche 911E Coupe

It’s nice to see another of the more interesting colors available for the 911. Bahama Yellow even brings with it a touch of subtlety relative to some of the other yellows available, which really shows in the hilly vineyard scenery of the pictures here. 1969 is also important for the 911 as it was the year Porsche extended the wheelbase by 57 mm across the 911 range so as to provide more balanced dynamics. The 911E was the mid-range model available, between the entry-level 911T and sportier 911S. These were distinguished from the T by having upgraded interior as well as Bosch fuel injection rather than the Weber carbs of the T. In all, the E had more power, better dynamics, and a more luxurious interior than the T and on the current market they strike a nice balance that doesn’t reach the monetary heights necessary to purchase the extremely desirable S.

Feature Listing: 1972 Porsche 911T

There are always certain colors that elicit an irrational excitement from me when I come across them on a 911. The most popular, of course, being Guards Red, but some of the others are even better. Riviera Blue. Viper Green. Speed Yellow. These colors certainly aren’t for everyone because of their vibrant assertiveness, but for some of us they always hold a special place. For my tastes, the best shades on any sports car are orange and those are the cars that really get my heart moving. So, obviously how could I pass up this beautiful Tangerine 1972 Porsche 911T for sale from our friends at Sun Valley Auto Club in Hailey, Idaho? And, of course, with 1972 being the only year these early 911s featured an external oil tank filler, that adds an extra bit of rarity to this already rare low mileage 911T.

1967 Porsche 912

We’re always on the look out for interesting and/or rare cars here at GCFSB and this excellent looking Bahama Yellow 1967 Porsche 912 with Caramel interior certainly ticks the first box. The seller hasn’t listed the mileage, but it appears to be just under 80K (assuming the odometer hasn’t rolled over) and in its past has had a rebuilt big bore engine. Other additions include a set of Fuchs and wood steering wheel from the 911S parts bin along with rally lighting and grille-mounted fog lights. The vast majority of 912s we come across, even those in great condition, reflect their entry-level roots and remain simple cars. This one here though has been turned up a notch and really appears to be an excellent example of what, for a short time, was an alternative to the 911.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

When Porsche introduced the 964 to the world they did something a little peculiar. The first model they released was the all-wheel-drive Carrera 4. To inaugurate a new model itself was a big step given the substantial revisions to what was quickly becoming a performance icon. To do so with the release of a model that previously never existed? That was huge. The Carrera 2 would come a year later, but the release of the Carrera 4 began the march towards what we might call a more “grown-up” Porsche. With power now driving all 4 wheels, in addition to an electronically-raised rear spoiler, the difficulties many drivers may have had mastering the 911’s dynamics now became simplified. A few years later we would also see an all-wheel-drive 911 Turbo and ever since these models have been a constant presence in the 911 line. So here we have an example of the model that started it all: a Guards Red 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe, located in Miami, with 86,000 miles on it.
