1992 Porsche 911 Carrera Cup

The 964 chassis Porsche 911 Carrera RS America was Stuttgart’s answer for those who wanted a lightweight special stateside. Based on the Carerra 2 and using the same engine, gearbox and brakes, this car featured a partially stripped down interior featuring flat door panels and removal of the rear seats. Outside, a whale tail spoiler and sport suspension rounded out the package. Not to be confused with the hardcore Carerra RS available elsewhere, the RS still had a warm reception by enthusiasts seeking something a bit more driver oriented.

However, one could “technically” get something similar to a Carerra RS in the US if they wanted. The Carrera Cup you see here was the product of a stillborn race series that never gained sponsorship, the Carrera Cup. Porsche had produced 45 cars for the series. Instead of crushing them or offering them in another country, they were put on sale in US dealers but not advertised. These cars had a seam welded chassis, aluminum hood, thinner glass and the M64/03 engine. Approximate weight shed over a standard Carrera 2 was 200 pounds. Rarely seen these days, this particular Carrera Cup for sale in New York has never modified for racing, has never seen track time and appears as is when it arrived in the port.

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera Cup on Hemmings Motor News

Grand Prix White with Black leather interior and Black carpeting, Two-owners from new, 5,000 original miles, 5-speed manual gearbox. This Carrera Cup car is one of only forty-five cars built for the U.S. Carrera Cup Race Series. Unlike the European Carrera Cup Race Series, the USA series never came to fruition. Based on a European Carrera RS, these cars came with the following changes from normal production:

Aluminum hood with aluminum strut brace, Deletion of body cavity wax and sound deadening components (except floor pad and roof), Sport Flywheel, Steel synchronizer rings in gearbox, Revised spring rates and struts, Recalibrated brake systems rates, Manual steering, Master electrical kill switch in front trunk, Partial electric seats, Rear seat delete (package shelf only), No sunroof, air conditioning or power mirrors, Racing electrical charging system, 36 amp hour battery, Racing engine mounts, Adjustable sway bars, Seam welding (extra stiffness of body shell), 3.6Liter engine rated at 256 h.p.

The car offered for sale is the most desired example being a Port Series Car which was never converted by Andial and then re-converted back to street trim and thus 100% as originally delivered by the Porsche Factory. This Carrera Cup is complete with original window sticker, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, all paperwork from Porsche to all buyers who purchased the cars, original Carrera Cup Plaque never applied to car and all service records. This is one of the most unmolested and original non-converted U.S. Carrera Cup Cars in the USA. Completely street legal with no paintwork, accident damage or modifications, this Carrera Cup has never been tracked and remains in 100% impeccable, original, pampered, pristine condition. It is complete with all books, tools and spare. This is a chance to own a piece of Porsche history. $159,000

This car poses quite the conundrum: at $160,000, would anyone take this museum quality Carrera Cup and use it on track days? Only the super rich could contemplate such an idea. But with so few made, I’m not sure I could bring myself to put the kind of wear and tear on this car that comes with competition, even if I had the resources. It would almost certainly be better to find a clean RS America, save a ton of money in the process and have a bit more comfort when hitting the streets. Still, lightweight Porsches are a passion of mine, and I’m captivated by this car. It seems a sin to use this on the track, but maybe in a few years time, when this qualifies for vintage racing, it could be a fun toy to take out every now and then and remember the qualities that cemented the name Porsche in the hearts of enthusiasts.

Rare 1984 M491 Metallic Rose Porsche 911 For Sale

I cannot stress how much I like the M491 911’s.  You get all of the looks and stopping power of the turbo cars with exponentially fewer headaches.  What makes this example so special is the hue, Metallic Rose is not only a rare color it is absolutely stunning in person if it has been well cared for.

Typically, people that buy a vehicle based on color make me nuts.  But, for me, this hue defies my normally ambivalent feelings regarding color.

1984 Porsche 911 M491:

From the seller –

“Beautiful Option color Metallic Rose, Sport Seats. Mechanically excellent, perfect interior. Receipts back to 2002. One of 431 made in 1984, real collector value for the future. The best 3.2 engine with all of the Turbo body, suspension and brakes! “

Short but sweet.  In the few pictures provided this Carrera looks to be in good enough shape.  I wonder where the center caps are and why the RS door panels but these are nits.  These cars are getting on in years and have passed through quite a few owners.  Some of which may not me so concerned about keeping the stock nature of their car(s).

What I can tell you is the seller is a very straightforward dealer who has been doing this for close to 40 years.  You don’t sell Posrche’s for that long if you are not doing so with integrity.  If you ever find yourself in Oregon I encourage you to take the drive, it will be worth your time.

I have seen these M491 cars range in price from $25k-$32.5k, since there is no mention of mileage I would gather this car has somewhere in the 120-150k range.  If my assumptions are correct the asking price of $26k seems reasonable, a final tally of $25k seems even better.  Either way it is a beautiful car sure to make the next owner very happy.

Ultra Low Mile 1986 Porsche Carrera For Sale

To me, there are few things in this world as pleasing to the eye as a ’85-’89 Porsche Carrera.  I am not alone, these cars sold quite well considering the economics at the time and driven, driven, and driven some more.  Super low mile examples such as this are very hard to find.

1986 Porsche Carrera:

From the seller –

“1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe, Guards Red/Black, 19k miles, 5 speed manual. Outstanding – always garaged, original paint in as new condition – no accidents. This is an opportunity to get close to a new 3.2 coupe in 2012 – perfect interior, all trim, gaskets, moldings. Factory options – sport seats, front and rear spoilers, cruise control, rear wiper, central locking sysytem, intensive washer system, headlight washers, blaupunkt reno 2 headunit. Added BBS 16×7 and 16×8 period correct 3 piece wheels and momo black shift knob – all else is original. Performs excellent, no leaks of any kind. Original wheels and shift knob no longer with the car, no records, compressor and tool kit.”

A couple of things give me pause, no records, compressor or tool kit.  For goodness sakes, track that down!  For $28k I think those looking for a car like this would want these things.  Or, maybe it’s just me.

The wheels, while period correct, they were ugly in the 80’s.  Now they are just awful.  1986 is also a tweener year for these cars.  You don’t get the G50 transmission but this does not bother me as much as it may trouble others.

On the other hand, this Carrera is pristine.  The interior looks new, the underside is clean, the block is dry.  The price of $28.5k does not seem all that prohibitive.  I have seen low mileage examples such as this being held for a king’s ransom so it is refreshing that the seller has his/her expectations based in reality.

1987 Porsche 911 Carrera

For years I’ve had the Porsche Carrera 3.2 on the back of my mind. Ever since driving a 1984 hardtop when I was on my learner’s permit back in high school, I’ve been hung up on these things. It’s like your first love; for some reason, you never forget it. There’s no shortage of low mileage 3.2 coupes, targas and cabriolets out there, but prices are strong. In most cases, you’re looking at $25,000 on up. Every now and then, I see one being driven around the urban jungle. True, they look beat up cosmetically, but it’s a testament to the durability of older Porsches. Not only are they high performance machines, but they can handle the traffic and weather that East coast cities can throw at them, sometimes twenty and thirty years on. This particular 3.2 for sale is particularly tempting for me, as it is for sale right in my backyard and has had a series of hardcore enthusiasts own it. With some attractive performance upgrades and a full mechanical rebuild at 160,000 miles, this car is making the right noises.

1987 Porsche 911 Carrera on eBay

Welcome to my 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera. The 3.2 Carrera represents one of the greatest Porsches ever made. From 1984 to 1989, this 911 represented the peak of 911 evolution and stands today as a great blend between the classic and modern 911. I am not a car dealer, I am an individual selling my own personal car. I’ve been active on ebay for twelve years, with a perfect 100% feedback record. I intend to keep it that way. I will disclose to you here absolutely everything I know about this fantastic car. Test drives are welcome, just let me know when you’d like to come over. Professional inspection at one of the area Porsche shops is also welcome, contact me for details if you are interested. Please note that all test drives and inspections must be completed by the end of the auction; this is a no-reserve auction, and when it’s over, the high bidder wins.

The first thing I will say, is please do not write this one off due to the mileage. There are plenty of all original one-owner Carreras out there with only 80k or 100k miles or so on them. Those cars are great – if you’re looking for a saggy worn out car that will cost you thousands to refresh, or if you just want a car that looks nice in your driveway. If you want a real drivers car, one that has been impeccably maintained, and one that has had a full mechanical rebuild, is tight and crisp, and is ready for many more years of reliable service, then keep reading:

This car has a documented provenance of Porsche enthusiast ownership here in the Washington, DC area. I have owned this spectacular 1987 Carrera for 7 years now, since 2005. I purchased it from Bill Hagy, a manager/owner of RPM Performance, a local Porsche specialist. Just before he decided to sell the car, Bill rebuilt the engine, rebuilt the transmission, rebuilt the suspension with all new rubber bushings and shock absorbers, and rebuilt all four brake calipers. It had essentially a mechanical “total makeover”, returning it to like-new mechanical condition. It literally drives and runs like new! There is no smoke at cold start-up. There is no oil leaks or drips, none whatsoever! The entire underside of the engine is bone dry. Good luck finding another air-cooled 911 with a tight dry engine. You only get this with a high quality rebuild! Bill used this car for years as his daily driver before retiring, and selling the car to me. Prior to Bill’s ownership, this car was owned by Marvin Jennings. Marvin is the current Technical Chair of the DC Region Porsche Club. He knows his Porsches! As you can see, this is not some mystery beater car from a shady dealer. This is a mechanically excellent enthusiast owned car, with no excuses. A thick folder full of many years of service records and receipts is included with the car.

Please scroll down and take a look at the photos. I have tried to photograph the vehicle from every possible angle. As you can see the paint is spectacular, and looks great in the sun. There is not a single dent or ding or scratch anywhere on the body, not one! The front end has 3M clear bra applied to keep rock chips away and keep it looking perfect. The drivers door handle has the usual scuffs from rings and keys, and there is a chip in the clear coat right next to the handle. It’s very minor and is not noticeable unless you’re looking for it. The wheels and tires are excellent. Recent Toyo T1R tires with lots of tread life remaining. The wheels all look great, no dents, no curb rash, no damage at all. One of the rear hub caps is missing, as you can see. They are inexpensive and readily available if you want to replace it. There is an aftermarket oil cooler scoop on the front bumper, passenger side. It is a popular aftermarket item for these Carreras, as it directs more cooling air into the oil-cooler. The scoop is painted to match the body so it looks almost factory. There is a marker light that goes in place of that scoop, should your state inspection require it to be present. Yes, the original marker light and mounting hardware are included with the car. On the front of the car, you will notice that it is equipped with the factory black rubber “chin spoiler”, a nice factory upgrade. The 911’s suspension is of a fully adjustable design. The ride height has been set to Euro ride height, which is just a hair lower than US ride height. Most people think the tall US ride height looks funny, and leaves large gaps in the wheel wells, while the Euro ride height looks more sporting. The suspension has Bilstein Sport shock absorbers. The tie rod ends have been upgraded with 911 turbo tie rod ends. The side mirrors on this car have been upgraded. I had the local Porsche specialist swap the black square shaped Carrera mirrors for the more curvy and attractive Porsche 993 “aero” mirrors. It is all Genuine Porsche parts, and the power mirror functions all work perfectly. I think it looks way better than the older “flag” style of mirrors.

Mechanically, this car is excellent. Not just “good”, or “okay”, but excellent. As I mentioned earlier, the engine, transmission, suspension, and brakes all had a complete rebuild at 160k miles in 2004. The car has only driven about 40k miles since then, so it still drives like new! Before you decide on that garage queen with only 90k original miles, please please go test drive it. Then come test drive mine. I know that other one will feel clunky, saggy, and worn-out in comparison. The engine has received all the factory recommended updates including the newer cylinder head temperature sensor, 911 turbo valve covers, and 911 turbo engine mounts. It has been run exclusively on Brad Penn and Redline brand high ZDDP oils. The gearbox oil has been changed annually, with Redline synthetic. The valves have been adjusted annually. All other filters have been changed annually. There is no “Made in China” or no-name brand service parts on this car. You know all the usual high quality German and European car parts suppliers, Mahle, Mann, Zimmerman, Brembo, Bosch, etc. The battery is an Optima Red Top. The catalytic converter was replaced in 2009, and will easily pass the strictest of state emissions tests.

The front brakes have been upgraded to the aluminum four-piston Brembo’s you see on later model 911’s. This particular upgrade came from VCI, and cost nearly $2000. It uses Porsche 964 calipers and 951 rotors. All Genuine Porsche parts! No weird one-off or strange parts to track down, it’s all proper Porsche parts. I had VCI media blast and powdercoat the calipers in the original gloss black. They rebuilt them with Genuine Brembo seals and pistons. One of the biggest complaints about the 3.2 Carrera is that its brakes were not upgraded significantly over the previous model, despite adding significant horsepower. You won’t have that complaint, because you’ve got Porsche 4-piston Brembos and huge 951 turbo rotors now! As an added bonus, the 964 brake pads and 951 brake rotors actually cost less than the original 3.2 Carrera service parts. Better performance, lower service cost, all Genuine Porsche parts.

The interior of this car is two tone, with cream colored carpets and door panels, and black seats and trim. The interior is in fair condition, no glaring defects or severely worn-out stuff. Unlike the mechanicals, the interior has not been updated or refreshed in any way, so it’s starting to show its age. The top of the dashboard has a thin crack, as do most cars of this age. The passenger’s knee pad has a dime sized tear in it. The drivers seat has one or two seams that are just barely starting to open up at the corners. It’s been that way since I bought it though, and hasn’t gotten any worse, so I’ve left it alone. The sunroof does not open. It does not leak either, so I’ve left it alone. The CD stereo was high end for 2001, but is dated by today’s standards, and it recently stopped working. There’s a CD trapped inside, a bonus for you if you can figure out how to retrieve it! 🙂 The air conditioning is disconnected and does not work. These cars have over 40 feet of ac hoses and dozens of o-rings, and the whole system is an old R12 design and needs to be replaced with modern R134a components to have good cold ac. Anyone who is selling one of these cars and says “maybe it needs to be recharged?” is either clueless or is trying to deceive you. There are several aftermarket ac kits designed specifically for the 911, take a look at Rennaire, Griffiths, and IceAC. No matter whose 911 you buy, if it’s older than 1990, you’ll need to replace the hoses, condensers, and compressor from one of those three suppliers. It’s a common upgrade and very straightforward bolt-on install, and now you know.

While it might need a good detail and have mismatched front seats (I don’t believe they came from the factory this way), I am drawn to this car because it appears to be mechanically sound from the extensive description. The upgrades, rebuild and lowered stance make it even more appealing. This would be the kind of classic that I could envision using on a regular basis. Now, to convince myself to keep holding on to that R53 in the garage and not go for a test drive in this thing…..

1998 Porsche 911 993 C2S with 6,900 miles

This is sort of an odd choice of a car to moth ball as a collector, but someone thinks it is worth a lot of money. This Carrera has hardly been broken in. Collectability selling points, outside of the low miles, include this being a last year of the 993, the C2S being one of less seen 993 models, its nicely optioned, has a 5 speed, and the appealing silver paint.

The last year point is made more significant as it marked the end of air cooled engines. To some very serious Porsche purists the change over was an affront to 911 heritage. One of the big concerns was that the switch would eliminate the uniquely identifiable Porsche sound. If you have had a chance to be near air and watercooled 911s next to each other you can tell that something perhaps seems missing from the water cooled engine sound. That said, to the casual observer (listener) Porsche exhaust engineers did a respectable job mimicking the old sound and it is easily identified as Porsche.

If you read all that with your eyes rolling or shaking your fist yelling blasphemy then maybe this air cooled Porsche is for you.

The seller doesn’t add much to the description other than saying it is as new, even comes with the original sticker.

I’m not the Porsche aficionado around here, but to me the $73,900 ask price is pretty high. Maybe it isn’t too far out of the park though as sellers of low mile 993 Turbo models can be seen adding 10% to 15% premium on top of that to prices. Its up to a buyer to decide if holding out for an equally low mileage Turbo adds 10% to 15% more excitement. Perhaps a better question is does the price premium of the S designation make this that much more valuable/enjoyable over a standard Carrera. To me the looks only S package has always been a bit of an odd step child. Either save the $$ and get a standard Carrera or put the money toward a C4 all wheel drive model or go all out and get the Turbo. Production figures seem to back this up as only 3,714 C2S models were sold vs. 5,978 Turbos and many, many, more regular Carreras.

I suspect a new owner is going to have to do some checking and servicing of items that may be past their prime from sitting despite the low miles.

My Kinda Porsche: 1979 930 Turbo

It’s taken me a while to really get into Porsches. I know that’s weird, especially for someone with an overall massive penchant for all Teutonic autos, but it just took me a while. Maybe it was my preference for the boxy shapes of 80s VWs, BMWs, and Audis, or perhaps it was the general association of the 911 as the go-to cliche sports car. Whatever the sickness was, I’ve been cured. I think the 964 cured me, and now I’m developing a healthy desire for nearly all generations. Still, the ubiquity of the Ultimate Sports Car can make it easy to zone out when perusing eBay’s Porsche section. Today’s cream-colored 930 Turbo jumped off the page at me, hitting all the right Porsche buttons for me.

The seller’s description:

Car Condition
Complete re-built engine and clutch by a certified Porsche mechanic, all doc’s available. Cross drilled 4-wheel disc brakes. 16″ forged Porsche wheels. 3.3 Liter 6-Cylinder Turbo engine. New Recaro black leather seats. Non-smoker. A Sports Car through and through with no gimmicks and no gadgets.

Exterior
Gorgeous overall condition. Body, Paint, Wheels, everything is in fantastic condition. Absolutely no rust anywhere on this vehicle and definitely a garage queen.

Interior
Gorgeous new Recaro black leather seats, all the power accessories work, including a CD player. The A/C is Ice Cold and the Heater works just as well..

Engine and Transmission
You turn the key and the vehicle comes to life almost immediately, give it a little gas feel the new clutch engage and the new re-built motor purr with no problems at all. Throughout all the gears this vehicle exhibits absolutely no problems, plenty of power and the race inspired brakes will not disappoint you either. This is a driving experience you will not forget. This is a fast car.

Misc.
Sacrifice – $60,000.00 plus has been invested in this vehicle. If you are looking for a good looking, great running, no issues fun car, this is it.

Fat fenders. Whale tail. Turbo lag. German car in white on black Fuchs. I’m sold. Bids starting at $20k with reserve on. If this is truly a hassle-free 3.3 Turbo, I think it can easily double that starting bid. With early 911 iterations a little too classic, and anything past the 964 a little too modern, the 930 strikes the happy medium for me with classic shape, scary speed, and the kind of dirty aggression that could only arise from the late 70s.

1976 Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera Euro spec

Somewhat unique Porsche here, a Euro 911 3.0 liter Carrera. The average car fan won’t distinguish this from other similar era 911 vehichles, but the Porscheophile will take note of the Euro bumpers and the Carrera 3.0 badge on the trunk. Car comes with Bosch CIS fuel injection and a limited slip diff for better drivability.

101,000 miles show this car was enjoyed. The previous owner was a Porsche mechanic. The seller lists a ton of replaced and rebuilt parts and judging from the fact the photos are taken in a Porsche junkyard I bet I know where many of those parts came from.

This is a nice looking ride with the polished Fuchs alloys setting off the red paint. The $35,000 ask price is probably playing up the rarity of this car a bit much, but hopefully there is some wiggle room in there from the seller.

Mid-Year Madness – 1974 911 Carrera

It’s been said recently that the mid-year 911s (1974-77) will be the next generation of Porsche’s venerable air-cooled masterpiece to really take off in value.  By the look of things this very attractive 1974 Carrera is leading the charge!

1974 Porsche 911 Carrera For Sale

Model year 1974 rang in many changes for the 911, some well-received, some not so much.  The so-called “impact bumper” made its first appearance that year, replacing the more delicate chrome bumpers worn by all previous 911s.  Conformity with US crash impact standards required the beefier bumpers, but Porsche master stylist Tony Lapine designed an elegant and attractive solution.  Out back, engine capacity was increased from 2.4l to 2.7l in three levels of tune – base 911 with 150bhp and 173lbs/ft torque, 911S (175bhp/174 lbs/ft) and Carrera (210bhp).  Unfortunately for Americans the Carrera powerplant (from the famous 1973 Carrera RS) was still not approved for US emissions standards so US Carreras sported the “S” engine.

The car on auction is a “Carrera” albeit with some tasty upgrades, most notably the very desirable sports seats.  The transmission is the usual 5-speed, with lower ratios.  This may be good or bad, depending on your proposed use for the car.  Maybe not so great for highway cruising, but nice around town and at the track with added low-end grunt.  This car looks great in Grand Prix White with the buerzel (ducktail) spoiler and Ruf-style front valance.  The only thing I’m not feeling is the wheels – they need black centers pronto.

Seller reports he is a long-term (15 years) owner of the car, and that various upgrades have been performed.  The most important of these addresses the infamous “camchain tensioner” issue.  While the standard upgrade is to change to “Carrera” (i.e. 1984 model year) tensioners, the seller states that the tensioners have been “rebuilt”… further querying required on this.  Also, what’s up with the speaker enclosure on the back deck combined with radio delete??

Mid-year 911s have long been the poor relations in the collector Porsche family.  While “longhoods” (1964-73.5) and especially short-wheelbase (1964-68) cars have skyrocketed in value of late, the 1974-77 models have lagged.  Whether the reason was their (marginally) poorer performance, slightly increased weight, impact-bumper styling, or poor engine reliablity (especially on 1975-77 “thermal reactor” cars) the middies just haven’t taken off in value.  Recent trends, however, seem to indicate that this may change.  As longhood values grow out of reach for many, the relatively lightweight middies with their narrow-body vintage appeal are becoming more and more attractive, and this demand will drive prices upwards.  The particular car on auction certainly seems to bear out this trend.

Porsche 911 Carrera Club Sport For Sale on 6SpeedOnline.com

The link love continues tonight with another rare sighting: A 1988 Porsche 911 Club Sport. One of only 28 officially imported to the U.S. and sporting the excellent Gulf Blue paint. Check it out on 6SpeedOnline.com for best offer over $60k:

1988 Porsche Carrera Club Sport For Sale in Gulf Blue

quote from seller’s listing:

Many of you have seen photos of my Club Sport. Business opportunities lead me to very reluctantly sell this car. When selling cars that I’ve owned in the past I’ve been guilty of saying, “I’ll find another one”. I cannot make that statement with this car.

The 1987-1989 Club Sport is arguably the most-rare, lightweight production 911 that Porsche has ever produced. It took me over two years to find this one. Not only is this Club Sport rare from a production standpoint, this is a “Sonder-Wunsch” or Special Wishes 911. The rarest of the rare, one of the 28 North American Carrera Club Sports painted by the factory in Gulf Blue. Believed to be the only Club Sport worldwide painted this color. The car was built with Chrome rather than black window trim and a Burgundy pinstripe velour interior. It is a car that is all original including the paintwork with extensive paperwork back to 8,000 miles.

Granted that’s a lot of cash for a Carrera of that vintage, but again I agree with the comments that this car isn’t going down in value anytime soon. I think it would make for an excellent collector car as well, and would be so awesome on back roads this time of year!
