Turquoise Metallic 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

Turquoise Metallic 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

Will I ever warm to the 993 Targa? I will admit that when I see one on the street I like them. But I like them in the same way that I like every other 993: they are a very nice design and look great. This is precisely my problem: the 993 Targa looks just like every other 993. For some (many?) that may be exactly the appeal. For me, it is not because I like the way other Targas stand out and I like the general design aesthetic of the classic Targa. Who knows, perhaps the original Targa design with the roll hoop accentuated would not have looked good on the 993. I just know that I prefer the original, and now current, Targa.

But I am not everyone and even I can admit that the Targa we see here does look really good. Here we have a Turquoise Metallic 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa, located in Miami, with Ivory interior and around 81,000 miles on it.

1996 Porsche 911 | 993 Targa | 6 Speed /3.6 LITER

Desirable and Rare Turquoise Metallic on IVORY interior

California and Louisiana Owned Targa
No Rust, Dry Undercarriage, Body is Straight and Solid

The 993 generation of the Porsche 911 is mostly referred to as the best and most desirable of the 911 series, not only because of its beauty,
but also because its performance is very good, even by modern standards, and the 993 was “the last complete “modern classic”,
“the 993 was and forever will be that last fresh breath of air that Porsche gave the world; elegance and muscle all in one package.”

The interior and exterior are in beautiful condition, paint shines beautifully with very minor chips from normal use.

1960 Porsche 356B 1600 Super Coupe

1960 Porsche 356B 1600 Super Coupe

Sooooo pretty. I find myself saying that a lot about the Porsche 356. Its shape combined with a wonderful array of available colors always attracts my notice and coming across one in a color with which I am not familiar isn’t all that rare. Many of the original colors have appeared under slightly different shades throughout Porsche’s time, so it’s not that we are completely unfamiliar with them, but they are subtly different. Different is nice. The color we have this time is Aetna Blue, a non-metallic light blue that really looks good on the 356, and here it’s contrasted with a grey interior, black carpets, and a hint of wood. A wonderful vintage automobile.

1972 Porsche 911R Tribute

1972 Porsche 911R Tribute

We feature a good number of these 911 tributes and backdates. Whether they are tributes to the original Carrera RS, to the 1967 911R like the one we see here, or just built by someone who prefers long-hood design, many of the basic principles and ideals behind them are pretty similar. And they can be very difficult to value. We wanted to take a look at this one precisely to help us gauge that value. This 911 is up for auction with no reserve so it should show us what the market thinks of these cars. Or at least what it thinks of this one. While the proverbial devil is in the details with any of these builds this one strikes me as falling within a middle ground and I think that makes it particularly useful for trying to understand value. It doesn’t appear to be the most well executed or thorough build, but you can see that a good deal of work has gone in to building this 911R tribute and there are a lot of nice touches presented throughout. Bidding right now sits at $50K.

Ending Soon: What We’re Watching

I’ve assembled another group of auctions that are all no reserve and should give us a good glimpse into several classic (or soon to be) models. This group is oriented more towards driver-quality cars, as many of the no reserve auctions often are. Still, there are some strong deals to be had if you look…

Click for Details: 1999 Porsche Boxster

I know, the Boxster isn’t for everyone. But the 986 brought Porsche into a new age of success and offered a lightweight, driver-oriented and simple, no-frills convertible to the masses. They were reasonably affordable new, but are quickly becoming the cheapest way into Porsche ownership full stop. While they’re not without their issues, this particular car is a nice color combination and has the dreaded IMS bearing resolved. The accident history and lack of a “S” on the back will keep bidding modest, but right now this car could you yours for $6,000.

Click for Details: 1976 Volkswagen Van Westfalia

The mid-1970s Volkswagen Vans weren’t the most popular in the run. Today, they take a firm third-fiddle to the more popular later Vanagons and classic earlier Sambas. Yet look past the model year, and you’ll have vansportation for a much more modest budget. This one has undergone a light restoration and looks like a nice driver and weekend van. Bidding is still under $10,000 – for reference, less than the Samba heap we linked last time.

Click for Details: 1966 Volkswagen Squareback

If a bit more classic Volkswagen is your style, how about this clean survivor Squareback? It’s not going to be perfect (*few are!) but with Beetle and Karmann Ghia prices on a sharp rise, the Type III lineup is suddenly the budget option. Bidding here is still below $6,000 with a few hours to go.

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I have a thing for yellow 993s. I like a variety of yellow cars in general, though it doesn’t work well on every car. I also like the 993, though it isn’t my favorite 911. The two taken together work wonderfully and I think of the various yellow 911 models it is the 993 that looks the best. Maybe it’s the shape; maybe it is that the 993 has fewer trim and accent pieces allowing that bright yellow exterior to show more fully. Whatever the particular reason I love it and it provides just what I’m after in a yellow car. The one we see here is a Speed Yellow 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in Miami, with Black interior and just 24,846 miles on it and it’s up for auction without reserve.

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:

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I’m on a little bit of a 3.2 Carrera run lately. There have been some nice examples from across the model range. This one here though I think is the prettiest. It’s color combination provides the type of stormy look I’ve mentioned previously, which is one that I especially enjoy, though on this Carrera it’s a less dark version of the ocean storm mix. The combination here is Venetian Blue Metallic over a Linen leather interior. I think it provides a nice contrast to the ’89 Targa I featured earlier this week, which had a similar Linen interior but contrasted it with a Slate Grey exterior. Here, the body color matching Fuchs look especially good and that adds to the allure. I don’t know if there’s just something about Venetian Blue that works well as a wheel color, but it’s pretty clear not all painted Fuchs are created equal and this color is a step well above a few others. Overall, this is a really pretty 911 and it looks to be in nice condition.

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

The 3.2-liter Carreras was one of the best Porsches built. They were extremely reliable and had all the creature comforts of a modern car: electric sunroof, electric windows, air conditioning, cruse control and power seats. These 3.2 engines are known to go 200,000 miles before needing a top end rebuild.

Very desirable and rare color combination Venetian Blue Metallic with a Linen Grey interior. Excellent mechanical condition. G-50 hydraulic 5-speed transmission.

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

Even though I’ve featured a few 964s lately there’s been a missing attribute: none of them have been of the forced induction variety. We still don’t see nearly as many examples of the 964 Turbo as we do with the other air-cooled models and the ones I do see all kind of blend together. This one particularly caught my eye, though not necessarily for reasons that some will prefer. It’s the BBS wheels and they look fantastic! I have a set of similar design wheels – though not BBS – on my car so the general aesthetic definitely has appeal to me and I think here they look amazing. Are they better than a set of Speedlines from the Turbo 3.6 and Turbo S? Maybe not. They’re a nice complement nonetheless. But, hey, sometimes it’s little things like the wheels that help a car stand apart and attract additional notice. It’s why the aftermarket wheel industry has done pretty well.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa

I suppose I could have put this in Carter’s “What We’re Watching” post since there isn’t a lot of time left in this auction, but I like Carrera Targas too much and this one is pretty nice looking. Plus, the reserve on the auction is unmet so there may still be more options to get it even if this auction ends in a couple days. Regardless, here we have a Slate Grey Metallic 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa, located in Oregon, with Linen leather interior and 66,756 miles on it. As I’ve said, Slate Grey always is one of those colors that I feel like I should say is boring – I mean, it’s grey and grey is by definition dull – but it isn’t boring. It’s beautiful in a stormy way and I think it looks really good here contrasted with the Linen interior. I can’t imagine Linen is easy to keep clean in an open-top 911, but when clean it looks pretty great. Covering the lines of this final year 3.2 Carrera Targa we end up with an attractive overall package and the end of the classic 911 line.

Conda Green 1970 Porsche 911E Coupe

Here we have another lovely rare-colored 911 that we so seldom come across. Truth be told, I strongly would have considered featuring this 911E even if its color was more common because it is such a nice overall example of these early Porsches. That it does wear such a rare color simply adds to the mystique and the allure. This is a Conda Green 1970 Porsche 911E Coupe, located in California, with black interior. The engine has been rebuilt and hasn’t covered too many miles since that work, but overall this 911 has seen plenty of miles (168K) and surely provided its owners immense joy over those years. To find such an interesting example that also has been well used in its life always makes us smile.

Last week’s What We’re Watching post seemed to be a hit, so I’ve lined up another group of auctions. This time, they’re all affordable no reserve classics (or soon to be?). Care to wager on what each will sell at? Let’s start with a 5-speed Euro Porsche 928.

Click for Details: 1981 Porsche 928

It’s far from perfect, but here’s a 1981 Porsche 928 5-speed in Euro trim. The BBS wheels might look more at home on an early E39 540i, the paint is tired and the engine hasn’t run in some time (and what the heck is up with that shifter surround???) but hey, at time of writing the whole package can you yours for $3,000. Certainly it’s worth at least that in parts?

I said “affordable”, right? Well, with VIN tags of 23 Window Sambas selling for upwards of $11,000, this no reserve auction on a lovely restored ’60 seems like a deal. The color combination and condition are spot on, and it will be interesting to see where it ends.

Back to great values, and this 1993 BMW 740iL seems ready to please. It’s got lower mileage, the great E32 shape, a nice color combination and very good overall condition. Usually the big money has been reserved for the follow-up E38, so I think someone will get a great deal on this very nice ’93.

There’s been a lot of speculation on the 80s BMW M market, so seeing a no reserve auction on an M5 is both rare and offers us the chance to litmus test the market. Usually the cars that come up in no reserve format aren’t the nicest ones out there, but this one generally looks great.…

1972 Porsche 911T Coupe

1972 Porsche 911T Coupe

We’ve featured quite a few modified 911s that have been backdated. Given the general disdain many feel for the federally-mandated impact bumpers it’s unsurprising that quite a few also would choose to marry the more modern mechanical equipment of a later 911 with the early long-hood style. Singer perhaps has made the most of this transformation offering bespoke 964-based 911s that can reach a half-million dollar price when all is said and done. Much more rare is the build that does the reverse. So I figured why not feature one of those specimens?

This 911 originally began life as a 1972 911T, but it’s been given a new life through steel fender flares from the 930, a lovely shade of light blue paint somewhat reminiscent of Gulf Blue, and that later front, here as a short-hood with RS bumpers. The appearance certainly is more aggressive than any 911T, but it’s that change from long to short hood that seems most interesting. The look is subtly different from that of a modified later 911 and it is in those details that I think the more interesting facets might lie.

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

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.

1988 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe

1988 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe

A couple weeks ago I featured a 930 Slantnose Cabriolet. It was a pretty nice looking example of these wild Turbos and I mentioned in that post the way in which those cars sort of epitomized our sense of ’80s excess. It’s a car that would have been right at home next to the white Testarossa on Miami Vice. Truthfully, the Slantnose is a little too excessive for me in Cabriolet form. Well, excessive might not be the right word, but basically the look doesn’t really wow me even if I do think they are kind of cool cars.

The coupe seems way cooler. As a kid a Slantnose Coupe definitely would have qualified as a poster car. They’re over the top in all the right ways and while they depart significantly from the basics of the 911 design, they aren’t really a departure from Porsche design. Porsche racers long have featured massive wings and sloping fronts, foregoing beauty for functionality and aggression. The 930 Slantnose Coupe provides a showcase of that in road-going form. Here we have a really attractive example from late in 930 production and in a rare color combination of Nougat Brown Metallic over Mahogany leather.

1966 Porsche 912

1966 Porsche 912

Slate Grey over Red: a color combination that forever will grab my attention and hold it. It is both elegant and exciting as the interior and exterior colors are juxtaposed with one another. It also looks particularly good on early Porsches, whether the 356 or on the 912 we see here. The chrome accents show well with the Slate Grey paint and the Red seating has enough contrasting elements surrounding it that it doesn’t overwhelm you. It’s a combination I simply do not grow tired of.

Strictly on appearance this 912 is fantastic. Both exterior and interior look in very good condition even if neither is the original paint or seating material. However, the history and originality of the car are less certain. We aren’t provided with any documentation to verify that these are this 912’s original colors and while the seller thinks this is a one-owner car, he isn’t sure.…
