Right Hooker Week: 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

Right Hooker Week: 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

Truth be told I wasn’t sure if a right-hand drive 964 Carrera RS actually existed. I was pretty sure I’d seen one previously, but couldn’t be sure I hadn’t just imagined it. But here one is: a Rubystone Red 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS with triple-tone Recaro seats and 58,900 miles on it. That’s a decent number of miles for a RS, yet its condition still looks quite good. Of course, the Carrera RS was never made available in the States, but they can now be imported. Sure, there are plenty of LHD examples available, but if you really want to take things to their extreme, why not just get a RHD one and really wow people?

The Porsche 911 964 Carrera RS was launched in 1992 and was considered a lightweight version of the Carrera 2 that could be used both on the road and the race track. Arguably, this was the most dynamic and agile 911 since the original version was launched in 1973. The engineers behind the project utilised the philosophy of removing weight and adding power when designing and engineering the car. Remarkably, nearly 175kg of weight was removed from the standard version as a result of using aluminium for the bonnet and doors as well as thinner glass for the windows.
All of the weight-saving measures added up and resulted in a vastly reduced overall mass. Luxuries such as back seats, power windows and armrests could all be disposed of and the increase in power came from a brand new lightweight flywheel and some other minor modifications. The flat-six engine produced 260 bhp and also fitted to the car was a limited-slip differential, modified suspension (with a 40mm lower ride height) and stiffer springs.

Right Hooker Week: Paul Stephens Autoart 911 Retro Speedster

Right Hooker Week: Paul Stephens Autoart 911 Retro Speedster

Back for more RHD British action. This time I’m not going with an actual production model, but rather a retro build to produce a 911 that never actually existed: a long-hood 911 Speedster built by Paul Stephens Autoart. I will not pretend to be intimately familiar with the PS Autoart designs; I’ve seen some previously and generally liked what I saw. When I was looking for cars for this theme week I knew that I should take a look at what Paul Stephens had to offer. The plan wasn’t actually to feature one of the PS Autoart builds. I was looking for a neat RHD 911 and knew they’d have some available. Then I saw this Speedster and my decision was made. It’s a beautiful car that marries vintage and modern 911 design to provide the look of a classic 911, but with modern performance and useability.

The Paul Stephens Retro Speedster is a unique interpretation of the Speedster theme, that was created to a client’s personal specification in 2014.
An owner of many Porsche models from 356 to current models, our client wanted to create a unique car that took inspiration from the various eras of air cooled Porsche.
He particularly wanted to combine the Speedster style with the delicate appearance of the 1970s 911s, something Porsche never manufactured in period and unlike original air-cooled Speedsters, provide a comfortable and sure-footed driving experience for cross continental tours in all weather conditions.
The 964 Carrera 4 Targa was chosen for the platform, as our client wanted secure handling together with a compliant suspension set up to ensure the car is extremely comfortable on all types of roads.

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S ‘Package’

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S ‘Package’

I would like to briefly interrupt our RHD Theme Week to bring you this very special car, which will be up for auction this Saturday at the Mecum Monterey Auctions. Those who are familiar with the 964 3.6-liter Turbo S should note quite quickly just how special this car is. However, I think it is even a little more special than we might first understand because, similar to the previous Turbo S ‘Package’ car we featured, I believe it is 1 of 1. This is a Black Metallic 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S with Cashmere Beige leather interior and a mere 6,356 miles on it. It looks amazing!

Right Hooker Week: 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Right Hooker Week: 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a love of cars. Whether it was the childlike wonder for whatever my Dad happened to have at the time or the lust-driven desire of my teenage years, cars were one of those things that occupied way too much of my mind. I even used to be able to identify almost any car at night from a distance simply by its headlights (a pointless skill that actually was useful in a police investigation once). But the car that really impacted my thinking the most is the one we see here: the 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It was the first car in my post-college years – you know, when I might actually be able to purchase my own car – that grabbed my attention and held it firmly.

At this point I can’t even recall when I first encountered the car. It was in magazine articles and Top Gear tested it. I lived in the U.K. during its production and actually wrote about it for a Theology course. So I’ve seen it in various media and once in the flesh. When Porsche announced that the 997 GT3 RS would be available in the U.S. market I was overjoyed, even if it was well out of my price range. Yet I have always come back to the 996. I actually prefer the design over that of the 997. I don’t know why. It possesses the same problems we typically associate with the 996 design, but on the RS it all works beautifully.

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!

Right Hooker Week: 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa Supersport

Right Hooker Week: 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa Supersport

As should be clear by now, we’re looking at cars from across the pond this week. Especially those that are right-hand drive. I’m going to follow a slightly different tack from the direction Carter and Andrew have taken us so far. They’ve shown a few interesting and quite reasonably priced models that weren’t available in the States. As is not atypical of the 911, mine will not be so reasonably priced, but I do think they are just as interesting. Some even more so!

I will start with this: a Grand Prix White 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa Supersport with Black interior and just 29,250 miles on it:

This is a real opportunity to own probably the best 911 Super Sport Edition coupe. It has an extremely low mileage, with its first owner enjoying the vehicle for the first 30 years. The last-of-the-line in traditional Porsches, these Carrera 3.2’s are the best way to deliver the famous air-cooled old-world Porsche driving experience. Evoking a time before power steering and other driving aids altered modern Porsches forever, this Porsche offers today’s lucky driver the authentic driving experience that made Porsche 911’s legendary.

The 911 3.2 had a redesigned engine inlet and exhaust system, along with the fitment of a service-free Digital Engine Management ignition system (DME), in conjunction with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel metering.

Heron Grey 1961 Porsche 356B 1600 Sunroof Coupe

Heron Grey 1961 Porsche 356B 1600 Sunroof Coupe

In truth, when I first came across this Heron Grey 1961 Porsche 356B Sunroof Coupe I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted to feature it. All vintage cars are somewhat niche vehicles and the 356 is no different. An early 911 attracts attention because of the long history of the model. With the 356 sometimes people notice, sometimes they don’t. Their relationship to the 911 is easy to see, but still they remain separate and possessive of their own admirers.

The more I looked at this one the more impressed I became and the more I loved the subtlety of the color palette. I’ve said before that subtly different shades of familiar colors are always interesting to me because it is in those little differences that we really begin to appreciate a particular color. I have never seen Heron Grey before. At first I thought it was Ivory; it isn’t very different from Ivory. But it isn’t Ivory as it has a slight tint of grey that gives it its name. The interior perhaps is even more interesting:

Here’s something pretty cool: a fully restored former Swedish rally 1968 Porsche 912 wearing its original color scheme and (what looks to be) a replication of its original decals and equipment. We see these sorts of Porsches pop up now and then, but in most cases they aren’t actual former rally cars, but rather builds that owners have put together that were inspired by the Porsche rally cars of the past. To have a chance at the real thing is a pretty nice treat! And the asking price really doesn’t seem too bad either.

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S – Tiptronic S

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S – Tiptronic S

I will fully admit that I was pretty disappointed when I saw that this 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S was equipped with Tiptronic S rather than a manual transmission. It looked so promising as I made my way through the initial photos, especially once I realized it wasn’t black, but rather a very attractive dark metallic green (specifically Forest Green Metallic). The color combination was right, the condition of the paint looked phenomenal, and the interior looked clean and in really nice shape. And then the gear shift lever stuck out like a sore thumb. Oh well. I still think this 911 is worth featuring and investigating further, in part because I don’t really see the C2S very often with an automatic (more on that below), but also because there may be buyers specifically on the look out for such a combination. Whether by preference or necessity not everyone wants a manual transmission so here we are and this one really is beautiful.

1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

Here is the second of the 911SCs I wanted to look at, also from 1982 though this time a Targa. Frequent readers will know that I love the Targa, but I will admit this one doesn’t grab me quite the way yesterday’s Coupe did. The colors just aren’t as captivating. Still, it’s a very pretty car, even if in a more subdued palette. I think outside of my lower regard for the color combination the rest of this SC presents as all together a better package than the Coupe. I have less questions about its present state and history, which should alleviate most concerns buyers might have.

There are several options on the classic including, Factory Alarm, Factory Air Conditioning, Factory Fuch Wheels, Cruise Control and more.

This car is located just outside of Sacramento CA.

This beautiful 911SC comes with the “Porsche Certificate Of Authenticity”

Of course, the grand equalizer of these two 911s could be price. I said yesterday that I thought the Coupe was pretty well overpriced at $52K. It likely would be overpriced in pristine condition, let alone with a few flaws and questions about its history and originality.…

1982 Porsche 911SC Coupe

I have a couple of 911SCs I want to look at today and tomorrow (and possibly after depending on what else I come across). There is no particular impetus to this, it’s just nice timing for a couple cars I like and my general interest in the 911SC market. This first one is the more striking of the two, though not necessarily the better of the two. I’ve become increasingly enamored with a dark gray over red/burgundy color combination and this one is really speaking to me. We aren’t provided the necessary documentation to support its originality, but we can hope such documents exist because outside of a few blemishes this 1982 Porsche 911SC Coupe looks pretty damn good!

Two-owner 1982 Porsche 911 SC; current owner has had vehicle since 1983. Garage kept; excellent condition overall with some blemishes as expected due to the age. Recently had all six injectors replaced and resealed along with general spark plugs/CIS adjustments/oil change/alignment. No vacuum leaks! Fires up with vigor and settles into an aggressive sounding idle. Muffler was replaced previously with a tasteful sports exhaust. Interior is extremely clean. Leather was recently conditioned and full exterior detail done. Great running and reliable example of these cars; just hop in and go!

My guess is the exterior color seen here is Meteor Metallic, a really nice darker grey that reminds me of Slate Grey. The Burgundy interior looks in really nice shape and has a lovely patina to it, though I do wonder if there is some touching up to the photos that is bringing out some of that look. Touched up or not, I don’t see any significant wear, scuffs, tears, or rips in the leather and the dash, at least what we can see of it, appears free of cracks.…

2007 Porsche 911 GT3

2007 Porsche 911 GT3

It doesn’t take much for me to take notice of any of the Porsches with “GT” in the moniker. I’m a big fan of pretty much all of them and certainly enjoy coming across nice ones for sale. The GT3 RS sits at the top of the naturally-aspirated group, but as things tend to go with the top model prices can be very high. This becomes even more true as we move toward the end of the 997 line when Porsche began seeing just how much engine they could stuff into the back of the RS chassis.

If we choose to step back just a bit to the GT3 prices suddenly become much more reasonable. I’ve looked a lot at the 996 GT3 lately as those seem to come in at really nice values for all the performance you get. As prices for the 996TT have gradually risen even those long-time performance bargains now make us look twice at the GT3. Fortunately for those looking to keep their spending sensible, the early GT3 models from the 997 line also remain on the reasonable side. Prices are, of course, still higher than the 996, but you’re getting more car too. You’re also getting a better looking 911.

The one we see here, an Arctic Silver Metallic 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 with 45,500 miles on it, is particularly striking even in silver and looks to have been very well maintained. For the buyer looking for a GT3 that’s been babied its whole life and rarely driven hard I don’t think this is the car for you. But for those who don’t mind some hard driving so long as it’s given proper care this one should make for a nice option.

Peter Gregg’s 1978 Porsche 930

Peter Gregg’s 1978 Porsche 930

This Porsche 930 has two very unique features about it and I suspect just how much people care about each will be pretty divergent. Ultimately, a sale likely will be predicated on that rare individual who prizes both unique features fairly highly. The first “feature” should be obvious from the title. This 930 is said to have originally belonged to Peter Gregg, former Porsche racing driver and founder of Brumos Racing. Brumos has had a long and distinguished history with Porsche and Gregg himself was a distinguished driver in the ’70s. For some these are merely fun facts that add little value to the car. For others, they are the kind of facts that change a car from something that looks pretty nice to something that’s special. A collector’s piece.

The second unique feature is of the more typical variety, but a very rare version: the interior of this 930 is leather-to-sample with Dr. Fuhrmann seats. Fuhrmann seats are extremely rare in a 930. They’re also really strange looking, but ultimately it is their rarity that will win the day here. Combined these two features make for one very special 930. At least if you care about these things.

Feature Listing: 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe Backdate

Feature Listing: 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe Backdate

Among Porsche 911 enthusiasts and collectors the 1973 911 Carrera RS is a much adored car and for very good reason. While not the very first performance oriented model of the 911 Porsche produced, previous versions like the 911R were produced in such small numbers that most buyers never would have had any shot at them. While the Carrera RS was still produced in relatively small numbers, production still reached around 1,500 so there were a few to go around and they caused quite a stir.

Naturally, all of this greatness means prices are now very, very, high. Some Lightweights have eclipsed $1M. Because of those high prices and the general demand for the style and performance it has become increasingly common for builders to backdate later 911s, usually the 3.2 Carrera or (more rarely) the 964, bringing the style of the long-hood Carrera RS to the more modern mechanicals and underlying structure of a later 911. We’ve featured quite a few of these builds and they come in all sorts of spec and with a wide range of prices. Here we have another, which I think looks fantastic in its very understated, but still quite pretty, Dolphin Grey exterior and within the typical range in which we see these priced, this one seems pretty reasonable!

KMC is proud to present a unique opportunity to own this bespoke, award-winning, Restomod air-cooled 911. The build was based on a clean, numbers-matching 1987 911 Carrera from California. This was a perfect base for the build, given the well-established reliability of the 3.2L engine, with a slicker-shifting Getrag G50 gear box and revised chain tensioning and lubrication system (which plagued the previous 911 generations).
