Feature Listing: 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet

At the end of my post yesterday of a Carrera Targa Supersport I mentioned that the asking price was such that you could pretty easily find yourself an actual Porsche 930 in very nice condition for less money. Lo and behold we just so happened to receive this 930 for a feature and I think it does a pretty good job of demonstrating what I discussed with the Targa Supersport. I fully admit it’s an apples to oranges comparison (different market, different model, different mileage, etc.), it just struck me as nice and timely.

Anyway, let’s get to it:

Here we have a Grand Prix White 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet with 64,500 miles on it. An ’89 930 always gets our attention. As the only year the 930 came equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission these are incredibly desirable and when one is in good condition it’s always worth further investigation. This one even has a very subtle and unique attribute: Porsche script cloth seat inserts. The first I’ve seen!

1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet with 23,000 Miles

1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet with 23,000 Miles

There are some obvious links to yesterday’s ’86 Golf in this 1990 Cabriolet. Beyond both being Volkswagens and based upon the Golf platform, they both have low mileage. Above and beyond that, they’re also both the base models of the lineup for their respective year.

In 1990, the Cabriolet was broken into three trim levels; base Cabriolet, the “Best Seller” we looked at recently, and the triple white “Boutique” model at the top. All shared the basic underpinnings with the 94 horsepower Digifant 2H 1.8 liter inline-4 and 5-speed AUG (010 3-speed automatic was optional) and 9.4″ front vented rotors and rear drums. The only differences came in the Boutique’s leather interior and wheel options; the Best Seller having the teardrop 14″ alloys in all silver, while the Boutique’s insets were color-matched white. You could also opt for package P24 in the Best Seller, which gave you both air conditioning and cruise control. Option package P60 in the normal Cabriolet only got you the first option – outside of color, the only selection you could make for the 1990 model year to the base model. In place of 14″ alloys, you instead got 14″ steel wheels with trim rings shared with the 1990-1992 Jetta.

But just because this model isn’t a higher-specification model doesn’t make it desirable, because here condition, color and mileage trump all other considerations:

1982 Mercedes-Benz 300CD Cabriolet

Back in the 1980s when the world was running rampant with small tuning and coach building companies, we were subject to creations like today’s car. This a 1982 Mercedes-Benz 300CD … cabriolet. Yes, someone took a perfectly fine 300CD and chopped the roof off to fully expose you to the wonderful feel and aroma of diesel exhaust. But it was the 1980s and the money was never-ending, so doing things like this made sense at the time. Now that reality has hit us square in the face in 2017 and keeps on punching, we are still left to live with creations like this. Of course with something like this oddity, I have so many questions I can only try my best to explain – poorly.

The condition of the 300CD is actually pretty nice. Looks to be well looked after with no major visible flaws. Sure, it maybe or maybe not has a Nardi steering wheel and maybe that shift knob is a quality piece and not an eBay special. But I’ve seen stuff like this many times over. The white wall tires look odd even with the matching white paint as I’m a firm believer that white walls only belong on the W100 600 and even then I’m iffy on them. I just can’t get over the canvas top and what went into making this happen. A bunch of coachwork houses have done these conversions but none have really stood the test of time or functioned all that well and I’d bet this one is another one of those examples.…

1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

It’s summer, which means plenty of warmth, plenty of sunshine, and plenty of outdoor activities. All of that is great. In my part of the world it also means plenty of humidity and the best way to counter humidity is airflow. Fans and breezes definitely are the order of the day. And on a car what better what to increase air flow than by removing the top!

With these things in mind I present this very pretty Venetian Blue Metallic 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, located in Georgia, with Marina Blue interior and 71,555 miles on it. This color combination is a really attractive one and has a very summer feel about it with its mix of blues. And, of course, the top comes down allowing you to better enjoy that warm weather.

The clutch engages properly and does not stick. The car handles excellent, and the brakes stop straight and true. The Fuchs wheels have been reconditioned, and are fitted with brand new Sumitomo HTR A/S tires.

1960 Porsche 356B Super 90 Cabriolet

I’m not going to belabor the point with this post. I just think this car is beautiful; I’m very taken by it and it looks like a wonderful example of the breed. I’ve always found the 356 Cabriolet to be a particularly pretty car and this one fits that bill perfectly. The 356 itself is a simple, yet elegant, piece of machinery and when paired with an open roof possesses all of the vintage charm that I desire. This isn’t really about performance so much as the enjoy of the drive; the melding of aesthetic pleasures to bring about a sense of tranquility.

1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet

1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet

The first water-cooled entrant into the Volkswagen world had remarkable staying power, just like its air-cooled brethren had before it. Construction of the first models began back in 1974, and though the convertible version didn’t begin production until five years later, the renamed (but largely unchanged) Cabriolet wouldn’t wrap up production until an amazing 1993. Granted, by that point the Cabriolet was more niche model and nostalgic throwback than practical transportation, but nonetheless it was an impressive return on investment in the chassis design that 19 years later it was still being produced. And, if you want to count the reworked South African version, technically the Mk.1 was still available for sale until 2009!

What we have here is one of the later U.S. specification Cabriolets. In 1988, Volkswagen updated the look of the aging model (which, incidentally, had just been lightly refreshed in 1985 and renamed Cabriolet from Rabbit Convertible) to the “Clipper” models. Signature would become the four-headlight grill, deeper and smoother front fascia, wider fender flares and side skirts. The Cabriolet became the first Volkswagen model to sport an airbag as standard in 1990, too, as well as a new knee protection bar to the lower portion of the dashboard. 1990 also marked the change from the ex-GTI CIS motor to the Digifant electronic fuel injection. The more upscale models, like this “Best Seller”, also received the 16V model “Teardrop” alloys making for a slick looking package:

Ah, the price you pay for low mileage. I come across a lot of cars with seemingly outrageous price tags. Most are good for a chuckle and then I move on to the next car. Some are just confusing. Others make me pause and wonder. Those are usually the cars actually possessing a reason for that high price. In every case, however, they are something to check out just to figure out what is going on. The situation with this car, a 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet with a mere 1,313 miles on the clock, is a straightforward confluence of features. Ultra-low mileage, final-year of the 930, and the only year the 930 came equipped with a 5-speed transmission. It even comes in a nice color, though not one that is especially rare. The question is not whether a high price is warranted, but rather how high a price. Perhaps here we’ll find out.

As we’ve all become aware, the air-cooled 911 market is not what it used to be. However, there has been some evidence that very rare and/or low-mileage examples have been spared from the market’s recession. But even those cars aren’t hitting insane prices so I do wonder whether this one will have a shot. So about this one. Let’s assume the appropriate documentation exists to validate the mileage and other aspects of its history. Without that the price has no chance. Last year this car was bid to $275K when on auction at Mecum Monterey. That’s still a good bit away from this asking price and with the market cooling I don’t know if we can expect more.…

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

I’ve been on quite a run of 3.2 Carreras lately and for whatever reason it seems like almost all of them have been from the ’88 model year. I don’t know why that is. I can’t recall any recent sales of an ’88 that would draw other owners out of the woodwork to try and sell their ’88 911 as well. Even if that were the case I’d still expect just as many ’87s and probably even ’89s to pop up. Anyway, here we are and here we have another ’88, this time a Carrera Cabriolet and it’s parked next to the ocean, which means it will draw my attention immediately. We are well within the warmer months so this is as good a time as any to pick up a nice Cabriolet for summer top-down enjoyment. This one here is from the lower mileage portion of the spectrum so it won’t likely come at quite as reasonable a value as some of the others available, but with the market seemingly overflowing with ’88 Carreras perhaps one like this can be had for a little lower cost. It’s certainly worth a shot.

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet – M491

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet – M491

The M491-equipped Carreras of the mid-80s are some of my favorite 911s to come across. They combine the aesthetics, suspension, and braking of the Turbo with the stout and reliable engine of the standard 3.2 Carrera. Not everyone wants a turbocharged 911, but some do prefer those other features. Of perhaps even greater appeal are those rare Carreras that combine the M491 package with the M470 front/rear spoiler delete option. That combination makes for one of the best looking 911s around. We almost never see one for sale.

However, these Turbo-look 911s find themselves in a difficult place in the market. 930 prices have come down for driver-quality examples and now are inching increasingly closer to the higher values of the M491 cars. At some point, the extra thrust of the Turbo might simply become too appealing. For collectors, the math is slightly changed as an M491 Carrera is more rare than those 930s and perhaps could make for a better long term option. Here we’ll take a look at one whose asking price falls squarely within that 930 range: a White Gold Metallic 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, located in Tennessee, with Tobacco interior and 84,766 miles on it.

1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet with 6,348 miles

1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 Cabriolet with 6,348 miles

Ever been out shopping and you impulse bought a shirt, wore it a few times, then it sat in the back of your closet for many years? Then finally one day you rid yourself of that shirt because you wanted it gone without too much hassle? Well, that’s what we have today. Only it’s not a shirt, but a highly desirable Mercedes-Benz.  Imagine living in a world where in 1995 you drive down to your local Mercedes-Benz dealer, purchase a car for $79,000 ($125,000 in today’s money), put a few thousand miles on it, then seemingly forget about it. Situations like this still blow my mind.

This 1995 E320 Cabriolet for sale in, you guessed it, California, was sitting at an estate with four flat tires for over ten years. It had only 6,300 miles before being noticed then rescued by the seller. It received a careful examination and full rehab before being listing for sale ready for a new owner. Much like the 1,300 mile 1982 240D I looked at last week, this is essentially a brand new car. So with nice examples of these cars with over 100,000 miles still selling for prices in the mid-teens, how much will this one bring? I might have an answer.

1983 Porsche 911SC Cabriolet

1983 Porsche 911SC Cabriolet

Searching for the combination of reasonable price and interesting model/color/options can be a tough row to hoe in the world of air-cooled 911s. This model tends to defy that difficulty: the 1983 Porsche 911SC Cabriolet. Of course, there are caveats. The model is interesting only to those who find a particular appeal in the first ever Cabriolet model Porsche offered for the 911. There are plenty of people for whom a 911 Cabriolet never will be a serious consideration. But I do think this model is interesting. It’s not only the first year of the 911 Cabriolet in general, but also the only year of the 911SC Cabriolet. And Porsche long has shown an interest in open-top motoring so the debut of that concept in its full form for the 911 – somewhat ignoring the short-lived Soft-window Targa – should attract our notice. The other caveat is that the 911SC Cabriolet isn’t always a reasonable value relative to other models of the 911SC. They don’t tend to be super expensive simply because few examples of the 911SC are, but value is always relative and in that sense the Cabriolet can seem a little pricey.

Here we have one in pretty standard form and I think it looks quite nice. The asking price ain’t too bad either:

I think this 911 has been for sale for a while. I could be wrong, but I know this dealer has had a decent number of very-low mileage 3.2 Carreras and I’m assuming this one is part of that group. So why feature it now? Because it’s 4:30 am and I can’t sleep. I’m looking at cars and this one piqued my curiosity, to a degree clearly more than usual, and now I’m writing about it. The asking price, the mileage, and of course the interior. I love a red leather interior, a point that perhaps comes into focus during insomnia-fueled car trawling. It is in such moments of clarity that greatness can be achieved. Ok, so that’s probably a stretch, but I am realizing that I do like this 911. The interior isn’t for the fainthearted – the CoA is hard to read, but the color actually is Lipstick Red – and on a Cabriolet it stands out even more. There’s nowhere to hide, but that’s the idea.

1998 Audi Cabriolet

1998 Audi Cabriolet

Looking for a performance car? This isn’t it. It’s also about as far from a classic Audi as you could get in the U.S. market; there was no turbo, no inline-5, no manual and no quattro drivetrain. But the B4 Audi Cabriolet was ironically the last 1980s holdover for the company, and it survived until somewhat amazingly 1998 here, with the basic chassis construction from 1985. To the end, it remained a competent and handsome convertible, a conservative alternative to the more expensive Mercedes-Benz drop-tops and the flashier BMWs. The Cabriolet really only came in one configuration here, with the 2.8 liter V6 linked to the 4-speed automatic driving the front wheels. On the fly, this was a fine setup and certainly potent enough to rustle your hair, though it was far from lighting it on fire. Pricing at the end of the run was surprisingly high at $34,600 base price. Added to that were the packages many came with for the 1998 model year; Premium Package added a power roof, burled walnut wood trim; Kodiac leather seat upholstery, remote locking and alarm. Ironically for the convertible, the “All Weather Package” added heated front seats, heated windshield washer nozzles, and heated door locks. Also optional for the end of the run were the Votex Competition 16″ 6-spoke alloy wheels and even high backed sport seats; both (especially the latter) are very rare. Today the market ignores these last B4s, and often they can be had for a song:

1998 Porsche 911 Carrera S … Cabriolet?

Coming across a factory version of a model that doesn’t actually exist is always a lot of fun. At least it is for me as someone who will view this 993 from afar, analyze and read about it, and then write. Were I an actual interested buyer I’d either be very anxious – perhaps because I was already aware of this car’s existence and waiting for a sale – or befuddled as I try to track down all of the necessary verification to support the factory production of such a rarity. But either way there’s plenty to look at. The 993 Carrera S, also known as the C2S, was only produced as a Coupe. It’s a wonderful car; one of my favorite 911 designs Porsche has released. It seems, however, that at least one buyer convinced Porsche to make a Cabriolet and it is that car which we see here. The asking price is astronomical and the mileage is very low. All of which combines to make for a very special 911.

Absolutely rare example of a 993 „S“ Convertible with turbo body.

Original Porsche factory conversion to turbo body according to special customer request. This model has never been available through the official Porsche sales program.

This Porsche has been ordered new in late 1997 by a gentleman, who had been a Porsche enthusiast for quite a long time. Therefor at that time he already had purchased a significant number of vehicles from Porsche in Stuttgart. Obviously he was able to convince the engineers at the Porsche Exclusive Department to convert his brandnew 993 convertible to a 993 „S“ Cab with a turbo body.

1995 Mercedes-Benz ‘E420’ Cabriolet

1995 Mercedes-Benz ‘E420’ Cabriolet

I’ve been big admirer of the W124 Cabriolet because of the massive design and engineering project it was. Like I mentioned a few months ago, making this car wasn’t just chopping the roof off the coupe, sticking a soft top in the trunk and calling it a day. But sadly despite the huge undertaking and investment, you were only left with one engine choice in the 3.2 liter M104 straight-6. It wasn’t under powered by any means, but it wasn’t exactly a speed demon either. Besides, if you want a fast Mercedes convertible, you ponied up for the SL500 or SL600. I’m going to assume that if they offered the M119 V8 in the W124 Cabriolet,  the price would have been even greater than already high $79,000 (and that’s in 1995 money!). The price point probably would have been right at the edge of the $87,000 SL500 and it probably wouldn’t of sold very well at all. Plus, you are factoring in even more engineering and cost to a project that like mentioned, was very expensive.

So it makes total sense why there was no V8 W124 Cabriolet. But of course it doesn’t stop someone from building one which is exactly what we have here today for sale in New Jersey. What started life as a 1995 E320 Cabriolet has been transformed into a “E420 Cabriolet” and it even has a few other interesting details.
