1968 Porsche 911 Sunroof Coupe

Time for something a little different. With the air-cooled market appreciating the way it has, we’ve seen numerous lower mileage and original 911s come up for auction and it’s been great to get a sense of the variety of well-maintained cars still out there. Here we have something that goes in a very different direction, but is still fantastic in its own right. This car began its life as a Sand Beige 1968 Porsche 911 Sunroof Coupe. Its transformation has included a respray in Slate Gray and it has been fitted with 911R lighting in the rear and rally lighting in the front. The exterior is completed with a set of fantastic Mini Lite wheels. Underneath the metal lies a 3.0 liter CIS engine, adjustable suspension, and a lightened interior fitted with a roll-bar and sport seats. The car was built in the vein of the hot-rod R Gruppe Porsches and while 911s like these will never appeal to everyone, it’s still great to see the sorts of interesting modified 911s that have been built over the years.

1985 Porsche 911 Carrera

Value buys for a 3.2 Carrera are becoming harder and harder to come by and for those who have long harbored a desire to get into one of these cars for the first time certain compromises may need to be made. The 3.2 Carrera was produced from 1984-1989 and as a general rule earlier is better for those looking to save some money. There is typically a distinct difference between prices for the last three years of production versus the first three years as it was 1987 that the G50 5-speed transmission was first utilized in these cars. That said, there are still plenty of good cars available and if they are mechanically sound at purchase, then they can easily provide many years of additional driving pleasure. Such should be the case with this 97K mile 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera, located in Pennsylvania, which comes in the unique combination of blue on blue.

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet

It happens every time. I’m struck by a particular car and, in this case, made a point about how I almost never came across a Guards Red 964 and how much I enjoyed that color on that car. Lo and behold within a couple of days I come across another Guards Red 964. The universe is funny. But I digress, here we have a beautiful Guards Red 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet, located in California, with Cashmere leather interior and 45,579 miles on it. The 964 has quickly become an excellent value amongst 911s, not so much because prices for one have fallen, but rather that the market for a 964 hasn’t escalated at quite the same degree as a 3.2 Carrera or even 911SC. At least not yet. So, as we enter the warmer months, what better way to enjoy a weekend of motoring than at the wheel of a fantastic drop-top 911.

1978 Porsche 930

Most iconic Porsches were only around for a short time, dazzling enthusiasts for a couple of years and then retired. The 930 is the exception. This is in part because it was precisely the model’s longevity that played such a large role in its development of iconic status. Regardless the 930 has captivated the minds of Porschephiles for decades and helped create the legacy of this rear-engine rear-drive sports car. There were few major changes made during its production run, but the most significant came in 1978 when displacement was increased to 3.3 liters and an air-to-air intercooler was integrated into the rear spoiler. As far as values go, any early 930 holds a strong place on the collector market, but for the most part the 3.3-liter turbos are valued similarly to the earlier cars with only 3.0 liters. All are very valuable. Which brings us to the car featured here, a paint-to-sample 1978 Porsche 930, located in Houston, with a mere 44,445 miles.

Feature Listing: 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

It has been almost 20 years since Porsche introduced the 993 and what would become the last of the air-cooled 911s. Porsche felt 272 hp was pushing the limits of what they could reliably produce from the naturally aspirated 3.6 liter flat-six engine while maintaining stable operating temperatures through air cooling. Combine those concerns with increasingly more stringent emissions and fuel economy needs and the writing was on the wall for the air-cooled engine. But Porsche certainly sent the model off with a bang as many still consider the 993 the best representation of a naturally-aspirated 911 produced to date. With the air-cooled market as strong as ever low-mileage examples are in increasingly high demand. The car we see featured here is a Red over Black 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe with 21,270 miles brought to us from our friends at Sun Valley Auto club in Hailey, Idaho.

1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition

Porsche has never been shy about celebrating or commemorating its achievements through special edition models of the 911. So, when they wanted to celebrate and honor the achievements of the Motorsport department, the choice was obvious and the Weissach Edition 911 was released in 1980. Based off of a standard 911SC Coupe, the Weissach Edition came in either a Black or Platinum Metallic exterior with Platinum painted Fuchs wheels all surrounding a Doric Gray leather interior contrasted by Burgundy carpeting. Each car would also come standard with a whale tail, but it is the interior especially that set these cars apart from others versions of the 911SC. The Weissach Edition featured here is located in Carlsbad, California and sits with 66,309 miles.

1994 Porsche 911 Speedster

Going on 60 years since its debut the Speedster remains a hallowed name in Porsche circles. Introduced in 1954 to satisfy the desires of weekend racers, the 356 Speedster was a no-frills version of the 356 with bucket seats and a removable windshield. While sales were initially good it would eventually be replaced by a more traditional convertible model as buyers sought to enjoy their open-top motoring with a few more creature comforts included. But the name had been born and the 356 Speedster remains one of the most highly valued and sought after Porsche collectibles. Porsche would resurrect the Speedster name in 1989 with a 911-based Speedster modeled off of the 3.2 Carrera. The basic formula was similar to that of the 356. For the 964, Porsche again sought to bring the Speedster back and in 1993 the 964 Speedster, based off of the 964 Carrera 2, was released. The 964 Speedster used the same basic mechanics of the Carrera 2, but came with a manual folding top, removable windscreen and more spartan interior. Only 936 were produced during its 2-year model run. The car we have featured here is a 1994 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Speedster, located near Washington, DC, with 43,663 miles.

1997 Porsche 911 C4S

I have always been a huge fan of the classic 911. From certain angles and in certain colors they possess a combination of beauty and aggression that makes me forget they’re 30-year-old cars. Then I come across a 993, especially one of the Carrera S variants with their wider rear arches, and my perspective is completely shifted. Suddenly the classic 911 shows its age when compared with the delicate curves of the 993. In the end, both are fantastic designs and with the air-cooled 911 market continuing to show strength, either model should provide great return on investment. The car we have featured here is an Arctic Silver 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe, located in California, with only 39,000 miles on it.

Feature Listing: 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

With air cooled 911 prices always on the rise, it seems that enthusiasts are more fearful than ever than to modify their precious sports cars. However, there are still a few adventurous owners out there willing to give their 911 their own personal touch and improve upon the standard formula. Such is the case with the follow mid 1970s 911 coming to us from our reader Nate, looking sharp in RS livery.

1975 Porsche 911 Carrera

I’ve developed a much stronger interest in these cars lately. Not because of any particular affection I feel for the 1974-1977 model 911 itself, but simply because these cars remain somewhat low on the price scale, especially considering their age. They aren’t the best performers and have been known to have engine issues, but I’m curious where the market for them is headed and what sorts of options we come across in terms of the condition of the cars. There were two models produced for the US market during these years (the 911 and 911S), primarily distinguished by a 25 horsepower bump (up to 175 hp) in the 911S, and these cars were distinguished from their predecessors by being the first models to have the new impact bumpers. The example featured here is a Light Yellow 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera, located in Illinois, that has seen 117,500 miles.
