2001 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe

2001 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe

I tend to lean much more toward naturally aspirated cars in my own general desires. Forced induction is fine, though in some of the cars I’ve driven I’ve really not cared for it. I like high revs and instant response. There are exceptions though. For shoppers looking at the 996 the Turbo may be just the area to do your shopping. They are a bit more expensive than a standard Carrera, but you’re getting a lot more performance and the Turbo (along with GT3 and GT2) does not suffer from the IMS issues that have sometimes plagued the first generation of Porsche’s water-cooled 911. So I’m always looking for decent 996 Turbos on the market and I think the one we have here fits that bill. Here is a Midnight Blue Metallic 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe, located in California, with Metropol Blue leather interior and 73,500 miles on it.

1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

I’ve mentioned a few times the 964 Carrera 4 that lives up the street from me. It’s the only 964 I see with any frequency and it is always a joy. I know it is approaching by its sound and it always looks great in a way that modern Porsches do not. But, ultimately, it’s not what I would consider ideal were I in the market for a 964. First, it’s a Carrera 4 and I’d prefer a Carrera 2. That’s partly just a general preference between the two models, but also related to some of the teething issues we find with Porsche’s first Carrera 4. If I really wanted an air-cooled Carrera 4 I think I’d look at the 993. Second, it’s white and while I do think it’s very nice looking that’s not really the color I’d like.

Well, the one we see here solves both of those problems. Here we have a Guards Red 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe, located in Montana, with Beige interior and 87,800 miles on it.

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

At its current price I really don’t think this Arctic Silver Metallic 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is going to sell. I also realize that’s a somewhat strange way to begin a post. The reason I’ve chosen to feature this 911 is because I think it looks superb, if not in the most exciting color combination. The mileage is low, though not absurdly so, and it appears to be in original condition. The problem really only is the price. That isn’t a small problem, but with some patience perhaps that price comes down a bit and then you may be left with a very nice looking 993 that you can enjoy with less worry about the miles affecting its value. That in itself is a lovely thing.

1987 Porsche 924S

1987 Porsche 924S

I’ve looked across the 924 range over the past week, from the well-optioned 1980 Turbo through the interestingly-modified 1978 924 base model. But in the case of either of those, the strong argument if you just want a nice driving, cheap entry level Porsche is the later 924S.

Offered for only two years in the U.S. market, nevertheless a bulk of the 924S production was sold here. Some 16,669 were made in total, with 9,137 making the trip across the Atlantic from Neckarsulm. Of those, the much more prevalent to find would be the first model year, with 6,947 accounting for 1987 production. Yet there were few changes across the run; 1988 received a slight bump in compression for a 5 horsepower gain, and there was the limited run of Special Edition final models that were quite special. But all offer lightweight driving fun with near-perfect balance and poise, reasonable running costs and sprightly performance. Plus, since many 924 owners treasured their foray into Porsche ownership, it’s possible just about any day of the week to find a really nice condition 924S like this impressive 43,500 mile Zermatt Silver Metallic example.

What’s not to like?

1963 Porsche 356B Carrera 2 Coupe

We don’t really do revisits much anymore, but I wanted to make an exception here because it’s such a great car, so rare and beautiful, and the price has changed dramatically from when I originally featured it last November. The original listing for this Oslo Blue 1963 Porsche 356B Carrera 2 Coupe had it priced at $839K. I said at the time that the price was higher than just about any other Carrera 2 auction I’d seen and it remained on eBay for a while going nowhere. It also had been listed with no description and that wasn’t helping. Here it is priced somewhat more reasonably at $565K, and we’re provided with some of the car’s history to help support its (still) very high price. At the very least we’re off to a much better start.

This nicely optioned T6 Carrera 2 was originally delivered to Hanover, Germany, but delivered to the United States in 1966 to its second owner and active PCA member, Arthur Foyt. In 1971 German, Eugene Deutsch, bought the Carrera 2 and retained it for most of it’s life.

The car underwent a lengthy restoration beginning in 1998. It was stripped to bare metal and repainted to its original Oslo Blue, which remains in great shape today, and the interior has been redone by noted 356 experts. This spectacular 356 is powered by a correct 587/1 four-cam engine that was built by the best; the late Billy Doyle of Rennwagen Motor Company and runs fantastic. His work lives on!

Though restored over 10 years ago, this Carrera 2 remains in superb overall condition and performs as well as any 356 you will drive.

1978 Porsche 911SC Targa

1978 Porsche 911SC Targa

I have a good number of questions about this 911SC, most of which are of the typical variety so not necessarily of great significance, but let’s just look at it first. A yellow 911SC is a pretty rare thing. They certainly exist – we’ve even featured a couple – but we do not see them often. A yellow car with a non-black interior seems even more rare, though I think its rarity is more among modern cars where I almost always see yellow paired with black. I’ve seen yellow over tan/brown/cork with more frequency on Porsches from the ’70s. So perhaps the combination has fallen out of style now, but was not always the case. Regardless, it’s what we have here and it looks pretty great! The roll hoop stands out particularly well and to great effect.

The 911SC Targa was the car that began my 911 obsession so I’m naturally quite predisposed toward them. When they come in such a unique color my interest is raised even more. But let’s get to those questions. First, we know basically nothing about the car other than its mileage and that it’s said to run well. That’s good to know, and the seller’s other statement that it looks good rings true. Everything else is a mystery including the exterior color. What is it? If it’s original I would assume it’s Talbot Yellow since that’s the only Porsche yellow with this brightness I’m aware of from the late ’70s.…

Ice Green Metallic 1977 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa

Ice Green Metallic 1977 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa

I think this will be the last of the green 911s I look at this week, though who knows what else I might find. I don’t know if I’d say this one is the most interesting of the bunch – an Irish Green ’65 911 is pretty darn interesting – but this Carrera 3.0 has quite a lot going for it. And it definitely has the longest name. Whereas this week’s 993 Targa seemed like a not too bad price for a nice car that you could spend some time driving and the Irish Green 911 combined very early origins with a great exterior color, this Carrera 3.0 brings with it a wealth of interesting facets. Like Irish Green it too comes in a wonderful exterior color: Ice Green Metallic. The interior too possesses rare, unique, and I think very attractive, Black Watch plaid seat inserts to contrast with the Ice Green exterior. And the model itself serves as the successor to the iconic ’73 Carrera RS. Oh, and the condition looks fantastic! There is A LOT to like.

Irish Green 1965 Porsche 911

Let’s take a look at some more green 911s. Porsche’s greens run the gamut and for now we’ll move away from yesterday’s dark metallic forest green to what might be the most iconic green of them all: Irish Green. It is seen here on a very early 1965 Porsche 911 and is contrasted with a light beige interior. I must say this interior color seems rather unique among early 911s. I can’t recall seeing many like it and it presents a stark contrast with the Irish Green exterior. Everything is said to be numbers matching and matching colors. Neither the paint nor much of the interior is the original material, but all looks in nice shape now. The price, of course, is quite high, but this could be quite the find.

1998 Porsche 911 Targa

I’ve always had a thing for green cars. This is especially the case when we are shopping in the darker side of the color spectrum. As we move lighter and brighter my preferences shift much more towards the blues and away from the greens. But as an alternative to black, a dark green car does the trick for me and that’s exactly what we have here today. A Forest Green Metallic 1998 Porsche 911 Targa, located in Brooklyn, with a Cashmere leather interior and 79,705 miles on it. I’ve said before that I strongly prefer these dark green exteriors to be paired with a lighter tan interior and that contrast certainly shows well here. It’s a very earthy contrast blending both light and dark, but without the significant starkness we find with black and tan. Some will prefer an all-black interior, and I think that would look pretty good as well, but for me the contrast we see here works better.

As most are aware, Porsche made significant changes to the Targa design for the 993. No longer would we see the removable center panel and fixed roll hoop. In its place was a large retractable glass panel. This provided a similar sense of openness to the cockpit as the previous design, but without the need for removing and stowing the top any time you decided you wanted that open air sense.…

1978 Porsche 924

1978 Porsche 924

I’m going to continue my string of 924s with an interesting 1978 today. This car represents the early run of the original design. It was a simple, no-frills, lightweight sports car – in essence, what Porsche was all about. However, Porsche’s headlining cars had moved on to powerful 6- and 8-cylinder designs, and turbocharging ruled the roost in performance options – so the EA827 derivative normally aspirated 4-cylinder from corporate partners Volkswagen and Audi was selected. That relegated the 924 to only about 100 horsepower, but with good handling and excellent aerodynamics they were still entertaining – albeit relatively slow – drives.

And, at less than $10,000 new, they were an affordable sports car with good build quality and a name established in winning prestigious races around the world. Yet, as Porsche does, sales success didn’t stop them from launching marketing-targeted limited production models nearly every single year – and charging a lot more money for them with options (up to around $15,000!). Today, if you want to collect an early 924, they’re generally the ones to grab. 1976-7 saw the Martini World Championship cars, while in 1978 you could have the Limited Edition model, and in 1979 the Sebring model. There was a 1980 Le Mans edition and further specials that we’ve seen, too. Along with the addition of the Turbo to the lineup in 1980, then, there generally isn’t much of a call to look at a non special edition early 924. But, this is one that might buck that trend….

I found this too funny to pass by. There are many ways to advertise a car, and especially on a site like eBay when you can scroll through hundreds of thumbnails you need something to get readers to pause during that initial view and want to take a second look. With little space available, most sellers say the typical things, sometimes there’s very useful information like “paint to sample” or “special order” (which, of course, may or may not be true), and then there is this one. “Beautiful carpets!” (I’ve ignored the typo) I must say that’s not the typical selling point, but it made me laugh and look more closely at this Venetian Blue Metallic 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe.

Tapas Turbo: 1977 Porsche 924 Carrera GT Replica

Tapas Turbo: 1977 Porsche 924 Carrera GT Replica

If the 924 Turbo was an impressive development of the first water-cooled chassis for Porsche, the subsequent developments were outstanding. Porsche brought the Carrera name to the 924, added GT and turned up the boost, widened the flares and created a legend in its own right. The 2.0 in GT form produced over 200 horsepower; in later GTS form, nearly 250 horsepower. Instead of the 6″ wide wheels of the 931 we saw yesterday, 911SC front 7″ Fuchs were matched with 8″ wide 930 spec rear wheels. Konis were standard, but early 924 springs were used to actually lower the car slightly. Boxed flares in the rear were met by better integrated flared fronts to cover the much wider track. But the big story was the boost; the M31.50 engine was a tower of power in period, giving the lowly 924 Le Mans winning speed and making it faster than the 911SC. Indeed, the model was a homologation special to allow Porsche to race the car in Group 4 racing. Porsche would use the development GTR models to score impressive class victories in 1981 and 1982 at Circuit de la Sarthe, but it was the 1980 result of 6th overall that was most impressive.

The model was largely the basis for the more mainstream 944 Turbo that was developed later, and often is mistaken for being the later model because of the similarities between the body and look. But a fringe of Porsche enthusiasts appreciate the early Carrera GT even more than the 951, and consequently quite a few have undertaken making replicas. As only 406 Carrera GTs were made, they’ve become fairly unaffordable for most, so this exacting replica in Spain offers a chance to drive a legend at a fraction of a real one’s price:

There is a depth to this Guards Red paint that is really striking and more readily apparent than on other 911s I’ve seen. I’m sure much of that is the photography and the way the lighting has been used, nonetheless it really shows the beauty of a red car well and why Guards Red was such a popular 911 color in the ’80s. I wish I saw more of them today. Here it is on a 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in California, with just 48,500 miles on it. I’d definitely want to see it in person to get a proper perspective on that paint, but at least from what we see here this is a really nice looking example.
