Wednesday Wheels: great options from BBS

BBS. Few letters cross boundaries of generations and marques of cars like BBS do. Renowned as some of the highest quality OEM, aftermarket and racing wheels available, BBSs have been selected by nearly all of the marques we feature as stock wheels or wheel upgrades, and many tuners still select them. In the heady 1980s, BBS really defined the aftermarket wheel category with it’s evergreen RS models, still highly sought after by most enthusiasts. Today we’re going to look at some different BBS options, each for a different marque. Let’s start with some popular BBS RMs – the two piece version of the RS, originally fit to 2.0 16V GTis between 1990 and 1992, but look great on 2002s, 320s, E30s, and most VWs:

When I originally saw the “Lobster Claw” wheels fitted to the then new 997 C2S/C4S, I loved the design. For me it’s one of those intangible items I can’t completely define, but I just love how 997s look with these. Porsche OEM wheels are always pricey, but these would be a great upgrade to an earlier non-S model or return one to stock. As a bonus, these come with some meaty and pricey tires that you could get some use out of:

In the performance world, bigger isn’t always better; if you’re heading to the track, keeping a smaller diameter wheel keeps both weight and tire costs down. Looking for a slick set of track wheels to bolt onto your M3 or other late 80s/early 90s BMW? This set on offer from our friends at Classic Car Club Manhattan may be the ticket:

Up for sale is a set of four BBS RK 16″ wheels. Wheels have no curb rash. Center hub caps on wheels do have small blemishes. Wheels are taped up in pictures for shipping. These wheels look outstanding on almost all BMWs. An example is our very own E30 M3. Best looking wheel setup on any E30 we’ve seen.

One of the more popular wheels with the B5 and B5.5 Audi A4/VW Passat chassis was the factory option BBS VZ; these RZs copy with look but have a centercap hiding the lugs. Perfectly offset for late 90s/early 00s Audis and Passats, these would really help to fill the arches out and are priced really aggressively, as well as coming with tires. Doesn’t get much better than that:

1997 Porsche 993 C2S

Though lately I’ve been writing up various 911 variants from the ’70s and ’80s, my mind keeps turning to the 993 and I have been telling myself to feature one or two of them here at GCFSB. So I’ll begin with this one: an stunningly beautiful 1997 993 C2S painted Guards Red with Black leather interior, located in California. Offered with either all-wheel drive as the Carrera 4S or rear-wheel drive as the Carrera S, the S version of the 993 had a lower suspension and featured the wider rear fenders of the 993 Turbo while remaining naturally aspirated. It also retained the standard moveable rear spoiler rather than taking on the Turbo’s whale tale. While some prefer the spoiler, I’ve always preferred the whale tale. Either way, with its wider body, the Carrera S had a much more aggressive look compared with its slimmer Carrera siblings and for many enthusiasts presents a much more desirable overall look.

I think this car speaks for itself. It’s eye-catching and appears to have been very well cared for. I actually prefer the multi-spoke wheels it’s currently wearing over the standard 5-spoke wheels so really I don’t think I’d change anything. 993 values seem destined to continue their upward trajectory and an excellent C2S in Guards Red such as this one should have no trouble following that trend.

1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition

I’ve written about a few 911SCs here at GCFSB recently that were typically very well maintained, original, and very pretty. The SC was the first 911 I had any experience with so those models tend to be the examples that immediately draw my attention. This time I’ll go with one that’s a little bit more unique though not quite in perfect condition. Here we have a 1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition located in Toronto. There were 408 Weissach Edition cars produced for the US market in 1980 as a testament to Porsche’s Motorsport team housed in Weissach, Germany. These cars featured either a Metallic Black or Platinum Metallic (like the one featured here) exterior to go along with a Doric Grey leather interior fitted with Burgundy carpeting. Other touches included a front chin spoiler, whale tail, and Platium-painted Fuchs. As of its last update, the Weissach registry shows 61 surviving cars.

You are bidding on a 1980 Porsche 911 SC Weissach Edition. For those of you who are not familiar, the 1980 Weissach Edition was a limited run of 406 cars built to honor the Porsche Research and Development center located in Weissach Germany. This car was only sold the US and they came in just 2 exclusive exterior colors, Platinum Metallic or Black Metallic, 203 of each colour. They both featured indentical inteiors of Doric Gray Full leather, rust carpets and piping and sport seats. On the exterior they featured a 930 style rear spoiler, front chin spoiler, 15×6 and 15×7 rear forged Fuchs alloys painted in platinum metallic. Most came with a sunroof. This car is one of three known sunroof delete cars in this limited edition. According to the 911 Weissach Registry, only 70 or so of these cars are known to survive.

Very good condition for a 33 year old car. Original paint and interior. Drives really well. Serviced and maintained by Hunter Motorsports, a specialist in air cooled Porsches. Last serviced in May 2013. Receipts for all work performed over the past two years, including new brakes, new igition rotor and cables, new oil transfer tubes and sump gaskets. Odometer stuck on 98785 miles shortly after I purchased the vehicle two years ago. Have only put about 2500 miles in the car since. I have purchased the gear wheel to repair the odometer, but not yet installed it. WIll leave that to the new owner. No rust or leaks. All original “survivor” car. Presently has AC compressor removed (they never really work and it’s heavy) and has an after market radio/CD player, but I have the original parts and Blaupunkt radio casstte that will accompany the car. New Falken tires on the original lightweight Fuchs. If I were keeping the car I would recover the front seats and the dash top. A set of after market wheels (Enkei, BBS copies), painted to match and also with Bridgestone new tires are also included in the sale, as is a Porsche certificate of authenticity, the original owners manual and service book, air pump and toolkit. Also have a new OEM front hood to bumper seal or “smile”, that I have yet to fit that will be included with the car.

Please ask any questions before bidding and do not bid unless you intend to buy. Car is being sold “as is where is”.

$1,000 deposit by PayPal or wire transfer within 24 hours of auction closing. Balance due within 3 days of auction closing or on pickup whichever comes first. Cash or cash equivalent only.

Pick up and shipping is purchasers responsibility, however I will assist as much as I can. Originally a US car (Palm Springs, CA and then Fort Worth, TX), so should be no issue re-importing to the US. Car is also listed locally and so I reserve the right to end the auction early.

While I love black cars, I actually prefer the platinum exterior of these cars rather than the black, in part because it matches so well with that beautiful interior. The interior’s burgundy accents complement the grey leather very well and provide a fairly unique look to counter the more traditional single-color interiors of most cars. And I think it looks fantastic. Because the modifications were entirely aesthetic, a Weissach Edition, though rare, doesn’t tend to add much value to these cars. A really good example that is low mileage and in excellent mechanical condition will fetch a little bit of a premium over a standard 911SC, but a more well-used example such as the one we have here will only see a premium if a particular buyer is really struck by the unique color palette. I don’t intend to suggest that this car has been ragged, on the contrary it looks to be in fine shape and the mileage is reasonable for a car more than 30 years old, but I think the Buy It Now is a bit high as I’d expect this car to sell a bit closer to $20,000. Regardless, this is still a good looking car and with less than a quarter of the original allotment of Weissach Editions surviving, it’s a car that may get a bit more rare with each passing year.

1984 Porsche 930

The Porsche 930 is no stranger to these pages. Many of us hold in high regard the various 911 iterations produced from 1978-1989, from the debut of the SC until the final 3.2 Carrera rolled off the assembly line. Add in a turbocharged 3.3 liter engine and wider rear fenders and the 930 married a classically aggressive aesthetic with more than adequate power. These cars rewarded attentive driving and that’s why we love them. For a few years in the mid-80s, Porsche withheld the 930 from the US market over concerns about meeting stricter US emissions requirements. The car was still sold in Europe, however, which allowed cars such as the one featured here to make their way over to US shores. This 1984 Porsche 930 is located in New Jersey and comes in the always excellent red on black color combination.

No reserve! The seller is clearly very excited about this car and it’s hard to blame him. The contrast of the black Fuchs wheels with the red paint is always a favorite and in general this car presents very well given that it’s seen almost 80,000 miles. A well documented 930 in original condition that has been well cared for doesn’t come on offer too frequently without reserve. Right now bidding has this one up to $38,988 and I’ll have an eye on where this car ends up. As it stands, this is a beautiful example of a fantastic ’80s sports car.

1977 Porsche 911 ’73 RS Replica

The 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS is an icon of the motoring world, and for good reason. The RS combined a lighter weight and a more powerful engine with improved suspension and braking to produce a car suitable for racing and began the 911’s stellar career in the annals of road racing history. Add to this performance the classic long hood 911 design and you have a winner in nearly every respect. Naturally, buying a Carrera RS now is a very expensive proposition and the remaining models are found mostly in the hands of collectors who have little interest in putting additional miles on the car. Enter the replica: you get the looks and the performance, but with a lower cost of entry and less concerns over maintaining collectability. Which brings us to the car featured here: a 1977 Porsche 911 transformed into the appearance of a 1973 911 Carrera RS with a built 3.0 liter engine reminiscent of the 3.0 liter RSR of that period.

PORSCHE 73RS REPLICA

The original chassis is a 1977 Porsche 911S VIN# 9117201571, in excellent condition, devoid of any rust, damage, dents. The car has never been hit or damaged in any way:

This is a very aggressively tuned replica; it is well equipped for the track and, should you be so inclined, it is streetable as the car is titled and registered in the State of Florida. There are no track miles on the car/engine. The car has neither heat nor AC in its present form. The Paint is good. And has a couple of imperfections.

There has been approximately $70000 invested in the car as it sits. Reproducing the engine in the car will set you back $30,000.

Short History:

The Car is a 2 owner of the donor car having purchased from the original owner who had been storing the car for about 5 years. The car was perfect with a bad original color choice and a worn out engine. It had 75,000 miles on it, always been garaged, never used in the snow. .

The stock engine was removed. It was replaced with a special build performance motor. Steel 8” flares were added, steel front fenders have been retained. A fiberglass hood, front and rear bumpers and spoiler replaced the original factory pieces. The car has been stored for the last 10 years, but serviced annually and occasionally driven to keep it in tune. You can drive it home. This Car is Wicked Fast.

I really wish this car had a set of Fuchs instead of the Fikse wheels it’s wearing now, but otherwise it appears to be very well sorted. No one will confuse it with an original RS, but I don’t think that’s this car’s intention. It’s an homage to a great design with an engine that takes it to another level. With 235 hp at the wheels and a 2300 lb weight, this car should be pretty quick and corner beautifully. The purple exterior paint provides it with a rare color that, frankly, I think looks fantastic on this design. Determining the value of a car such as this one is really a matter of finding a buyer for whom this car presses all the right buttons. While the purchase price will be far lower than that of an original ’73 Carrera RS, I doubt this would be a cheap car to run if the owner plans to drive it frequently. But, a Carrera RS with an RSR engine was never intended to be the stuff of backyard DIYers. So as Ferris Bueller famously quipped, “If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.”

V8 Week Preview: 1994 Porsche 928 GTS

Porsche’s foray into the GT car market was supposed to be the move that insured the long term success and viability of the marque. Surely their quirky rear-engined sports car had reached its potential and buyers would prefer the combination of performance and comfort that only a well designed front-engined GT could provide, right? Such was the basic process behind the introduction of the 928. First introduced in 1977, the 928 had a 4.5 liter V8 delivering 219 hp to the rear wheels. By the end of its life-cycle in 1995, engine output had increased to 345 hp from a 5.4 liter V8, but much of the rest of the car, especially its appearance, remained the same. In the end, Porsche had underestimated the long-term viability and potential success of the 911 and it’s now been nearly two decades since the last of these GT cars rolled off the line.

The car we have here today comes from near the very end of the model’s production run: a 1994 Porsche 928 GTS with manual transmission located in Indianapolis.

1994 Porsche 928 GTS finished in Polar Silver exterior with supple blue leather interior. 5 speed manual transmission with only 47,236 miles. This is a 100% original car. Options include supple leather interior, sport suspension (Bilsteins), no ugly side moldings, wheels painted to match vehicles exterior with painted crests and a 6 disc CD changer just to mention a few. Excessively documented since new with every single service record accounted for. A thorough timing belt/water pump/tensioner/pulley/external belt service was performed at 41,000 miles. A retensioning has been completed as well. Nearly brand new Bridgestone Potenza RE050 Runflats complete the package. All books, tools, compressor, spare, cargo net, cargo cover, two types of Porsche wheel locks with keys and caps, brand new Porsche floor mats still in their plastic wrap and all other original equipment items are accounted for. Never any paint or bodywork. Option codes: C02, 331, 570, 650, 692, 740, 935 and 980. Like new in every respect. This GTS has been stored in climate controlled storage. No disappointments. Feel free to call Todd Johnson anytime to discuss this further at 317-506-3022.

There’s a ton to like about this car. It appears spotless both inside and out, it has the highly desirable 5 speed manual, the mileage is reasonable, and it comes with a complete service history. It’s fitting that Porsche designated this color as Polar Silver because matched with the blue leather interior there’s definitely a icy quality to the overall appearance of this car. It’s a pretty great combination and a nice departure from the more standard blacks and browns, but without being overly flashy. It’s a GT car, understated excellence is what we want. Bidding has been aggressive so far with nearly 40 bids received and a price currently at $34,100 with the reserve still on. I expect that will come up a little bit, but it’ll be interesting to see if it can meet the reserve. Either way, this looks like an excellent example of the car that Porsche assumed would be its savior.

1971 Porsche 914-4 Ginther replica

No, you’re not on the wrong day; it’s Sunday, and I’m reviewing a race car, something I’d usually leave until Motorsport Monday. But with “V8 Week” upcoming and time running out on this car’s auction, it was too good to not write up – plus, we have something special for you tomorrow. While in the past I’ve focused on some big dollar 911s, today we’re looking at a much more affordable to buy and run 914. For a long time unloved by most of the Porsche crowd, in race trim the 914 is a solid performer and hearkens back to a time when you had to drive the car yourself rather than relying on computers to do the heavy lifting. Better yet, without relying on the power of it’s bigger brethren to drag it out of corners, the 914 is a fantastic platform for you to better yourself as a driver. Like the Martini Racing RSR replica I wrote up last week, today’s 914 is a recreation of a more famous race car, this time the Richie Ginther 914-4 race cars built for West Coast Porsche and Audi:

This car is the one to buy, with a full restoration already done. The correct race pieces have been fit, and this car will certainly hang with the competition. I think it looks awesome in yellow with the period graphics that we saw on everything from the 914 through the 917-30. But what really sets this car apart for most race wannabes is the full package; race car, enclosed trailer, and pit bike are all included in the purchase price. As a package then, all you need to show up with is a tow vehicle capable of taking your personal race team with you. I think this car looks fantastic, from the Panasports to the windscreen free profile. As complete packages go, this seems like a pretty reasonable deal. Yes, the car and trailer do show some wear, but you’d be hard pressed to recreate this package for less than the asking price, and you’d save yourself a lot of headaches and time not trying to reinvent the wheel.

1969 Porsche 912

From 1965-1969 the Porsche 911 had a sibling: the 912. It featured the body of the 911 mated to the 1.6 liter engine from the Porsche 356 and served as Porsche’s entry-level car for those early years of its production. But the little brother was no slouch and typically provided better driving dynamics than it’s bigger brother due to its lighter engine and improved weight distribution. With only 90 hp the 912 wasn’t powerful but it wasn’t heavy either. These cars provided a simple but fun driving experience. While the 912 returned for a one-year run in 1976 as the 912E, it is the earlier cars that have commanded the most attention from collectors. Like the pre-1974 911 models, from 1965-1969 the 912 showcased the original long hood design of the 911, a feature lost on the cars produced in 1976. As such, prices for excellent examples are higher, but still well below the cost of a similar vintage 911. The example featured here today is a beautiful Irish Green 1969 Porsche 912 located in Los Angeles that has been fully restored.

The car has been completed in show quality condition and presents remarkably well. The car was totally stripped down, everything was removed (i.e. whole interior, bumpers, engine and transmission, suspensions, all electronics and cables, brake lines, every single screw was removed etc.), the body was sanded down by experts and then prepared and repainted with original color. Everything that was removed was sent out to be refurbished professionally, or replaced with new oem parts.

Each and every part that was removed has been powder coated, such as hood hinges, deck lid hinges, A arms, spring plate, the complete suspension and all engine sheet metal pieces. Even the air cleaners were powder coated in glass shine finish.

The engine was completely rebuilt with a 86mm big bore kit. All new gasket sets, new rod bearings, and new rings, valve job, new clutch disc, pressure plate trout bearing. The solex carburetors was replaced with webers and the original knecht air cleaners were refurbished and reinstalled. The transmission is a 5 speed. It was open cleaned and checked. It shifts smoothly through all gears like it should.

The front and rear suspensions were rebuilt with all new bushing, new shocks, front and rear, new brakes all around, new brake lines and hoses, new tires, front and rear.The fuchs wheels are flat 6j x 15 they were polished and painted in excellent condition.

I love the Irish Green exterior. I’m a bit less enamored with the green interior, but I suppose it’d be a pretty rare combination! There’s also the matter of the seller’s designation of the engine as 1720cc. The engine from the 356 was 1582cc and was used from 1965-1969 in the 912 and the 1976 912E used a 2.0L flat-4 that was sourced from VW. Perhaps 1720cc is simply a typo, but if it isn’t then I’m not aware of the 912 being offered with such an engine and that would hurt this car’s originality. Otherwise, this looks like a very well restored original example and should command a pretty good price. Bidding is currently at $25,000 with the reserve still on. An excellent 912 of this vintage could easily sell at close to $40,000. Assuming the engine checks out I don’t think this one reaches that high, but I could certainly see a price in the mid-30s.

1986 Porsche 911 Turbo

If you asked me what car of the 1980s that captured the optimism and momentum of this decade, the Porsche 911 Turbo would be it. A little over a decade in since this wild Porsche had gone on sale and it had become a legend. This car was revered and feared for its power, as it was never an easy car to handle with all that power swung out behind the rear axle. Those who mastered the nuances of this car would be rewarded. While most people would be satisfied with the 282 horsepower the standard Turbo provided, plenty of folks tuned up this Stuttgart hot rod to even greater heights. Such is the case with this 1986 911 Turbo for sale from our reader, Jim, in Jacksonville, Florida.

Year: 1986

With almost 400 horsepower at the rear wheels, this Turbo is sure to give some later air-cooled turbos a run for their money. Given the mileage of this Turbo, I’d say it’s priced rather accurately given that most good 911 Turbos of this era will start in the high $30,000 to $50,000 range.

2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

I’ll just get this out of the way: the GT3 RS is my favorite car; it is the money-no-object car that I’d buy amongst the various super- and hyper-cars available today. The one featured here is even a bit more special. Beginning with the 2011 3.8L GT3 RS, which produced 450 hp in its stock form, this car has been worked over by DeMan Motorsport to turn what was already a very good track vehicle into something that should be fairly brilliant. I’d prefer my GT3 RS to come with one of the wilder color combinations available, but even in the subdued hue seen here this car is stunningly pretty and sure to drive spectacularly.

DeMan Motorsport artfully crafted this 2011, 1700-original-mile beauty into a unique and truly superior RS both in terms of performance and reliability.

• New main bearing
• New rod bearings
• New timing chains
• New main oil pump
• New scavenge oil pump
• New oil heat exchanger
• New intake cam actuators
The refreshed motor has only 1600 miles!

In addition, the entire transmission was just disassembled and inspected and the clutch and clutch cover were replaced with new Sachs Performance 4.0 equipment. The new clutch has 200 miles!

No expense was spared. The build (not including the motor refresh and new clutch) totaled over $93,000. The list of enhancement modifications includes:

This car can compete with the performance of a CUP car, but has the reliability and durability of a stock RS. Further, its handling at the limits is absolutely confidence inspiring. This car is a DREAM to drive very, very fast. If you have an RS and are serious about tracking your car, don’t drive this car unless you already plan on buying it.

509

This car comes with all of the goodies: full roll cage, upgraded suspension, upgraded brakes, rebuilt engine, onboard radio and video systems, RSR aerodynamics; the works. These cars sold for around $150,000 when new and that’s where the seller has placed the starting bid on this auction. For someone looking for a GT3 RS that has been taken to the next level, this would be a nice place to start. File this one under the “future lottery purchases” column.
