In an era when cars look more and more alike, enthusiasts with the means will always seek out a way to have something unique that is tailored to their tastes. Case in point, the Porsche “Sonderwunsch” program, which is currently known as Porsche Exclusive. This program offers buyers the opportunity to specify options and configurations not normally seen in the standard Porsche lineup, such as the famous 964 Speedster Widebody, a particular body or interior color to sample, or in the case of this 930 Turbo for sale in San Francisco, the Flachbau, or Slantnose option.
My fellow contributor Brian and I look back on the 1980s with fond memories from time to time and this 930 Slantnose pretty much epitomizes the era, in the same way the Testarossa did for Ferrari and the Countach did for Lamborghini. Finished in Grand Prix White with Fuchs wheels to match, it doesn’t get much more over the top than this.
GP White over Black 4-speed, 3.3 Turbo, upgraded turbocharger, Ruf intercooler, $103k MSRP. This is a factory M505 steel slantnose coupe and is 1 of 271 total cars built in 1988. Options include: steering wheel with raised hub, Heated seat left and right, LSD, GP White Fuchs, left seat lumbar support, velour luggage compartment, supple leather. $13k of recent maintenance including new clutch, engine reseal. Speedline multi-piece 18″ wheels are available separately for $5,500.
Like many 911s, values for the 930 Turbo have been strong over the years, and for those with the Slantnose option, even more so. It’s fairly rare that I see a high mileage Slantnose, as those who bought these cars typically had a stable of toys to choose from. For a 24 year old car then, the 40,000 miles covered is typical for one of these sports cars.…
In all the years that the Porsche 911 has been with us, we’ve only seen the Speedster appear three times, in 1989, 1994 and 2012. There were also two 993 based Speedsters produced by the factory, one for Ferdinand Porsche and the other for noted Porsche collector Jerry Seinfeld. Of all the 911 Speedsters, the 964 based one is my favorite. The smooth, integrated bumpers mesh well with the trademark tonneau cover. Most of the Speedsters you come across these days have low mileage and have been stashed away by collectors, and this one for sale in Florida is no different.
This unique and extremely rare Porsche Speedster is in concours condition and a must have to complete your ultimate Porsche collection. With only 23,602 miles, this Porsche is one of only 427 shipped to the USA! Immediately recognizable and a real head turner is the iconic bathtub styling. This is the final edition of the drop top, air cooled 964 Speedster and a must have. The 1994 edition is significantly more performance oriented with a larger 3.6 liter engine (247 hp), larger wheels and tires, better brakes (ABS) and a faster top speed (162 mph).
This car is equipped with a 5-speed G50 gearbox, color coded 17” wheels, AM/FM/CD player, black soft top (in near perfect condition), automatic rear spoiler, driver airbag, power windows and locks, cockpit tonneau cover and complete books/keys. The Dunlop tires are brand new. It has a clean Carfax with no accident history. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a rare collectors Speedster in immaculate condition.
It seems that $80,000 to $100,000 is the sweet spot for mint, low mileage 964 Speedsters right now. The overdose of white might not be to everyone’s liking, but I’m a fan. While it doesn’t have the more aggressively bolstered seats with color keyed seatbacks, the cloth seats are a nice touch that you don’t see too often.…
Porsche upped the 944 ante in 1988 with this car, the Turbo S. This version included the M44/52 engine with 250 horsepower, the added power resulting from the use of a modified turbo and revised engine mapping. Extensive suspension modifications came in the way of Koni adjustable shock absorbers, harder bushings and larger diameter hollowed out anti-roll bars. Larger front brakes from the 928S4 along with ABS was included in the package, as well. The following year, the “S” designation was dropped, as the normal 944 Turbo was now made standard with the Turbo S engine. This Turbo S for sale in Ohio has 35,000 miles and has had a good bit of maintenance and other items tended to in the past two years.

Hello all, it has been awhile and I have missed the banter. I have not been able to keep up my regular contributions as my budding little European auto business is taking up more and more of my time, and sanity. That does not mean that I don’t run into the occasional gem every now and again.
Case in point, during my daughter’s soccer practice her coach pulled into the parking lot in what sounded like something very Italian. Imagine my surprise when the culprit turned out to be a ’04 Porsche Boxster S. I complimented him on his choice of transport and he responded with, “thanks, know anyone that wants it?” Turns out, like many of us, he has gotten to the point where a two seat vehicle and a growing family are not a good match.
Some more details on the car –
“One owner 2004 Porsche Boxster S finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over black leather interior. 51k cared for miles with a clean title and CARFAX, all maintenance is current.

This Boxster also has NHP headers, high flow 20″ catalytic converters from Jeggs, a Borla exhaust, and a Evoms intake to help everything breathe better.
All stock parts come with this Porsche.
Even after eight years of being on sale, I still have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that Porsche sells a four-door, off-road vehicle. True, years ago the company built a diesel tractor, but for myself and others, the 911 will still be the quintessential Porsche. Still, the Cayenne is a perfectly capable vehicle in its own right. If I was going to own one, however, it would be this one, the GTS. Powered by a 4.8 liter, 405 horsepower V8, this beast was available with a 6-speed manual transmission, as we see in our feature car for sale in Arizona.
This 2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS AWD, 6 Speed Manual is perfect in every sense of the word. VERY RARE approximately 1 in 25 OEM versions of the Cayenne GTS were produced in the rare manual gearbox format. If you desire the functionality of a sport SUV with the exhilaration of personally commanding the delivery its 4.8L 405 hp and 369 ft-lbs. to the pavement through the famous Porsche 6-speed manual gearbox, this is your new vehicle. It has been meticulously cared for by the original owner. This Cayenne is gorgeous. All Porsche service by Porsche dealership. All GTS standard features plus much, much more.

Whenever I’m talking Porsches with fellow gearheads and the topic comes around to the 944, I usually am greeting with more sneers than cheers. Most enthusiasts will always favor the 911 more no matter what, but the 944 offers a bit more practicality and sure footed handling at a more affordable price. Later model 944s are the ones to seek out, like this 1989 S2 with the 16 valve engine for sale in Philadelphia.
Rare red 5-speed manual Porsche 944. Dual overhead cam 16V 3.0L. Low Mileage vehicle. Power windows, leather interior, moonroof, books and manuals. Original rims. The car has been inspected by our mechanic. We will take trade-ins.
You are looking at an exceptionally well kept, great looking luxury Porsche 944 S2, one of the finest series. This car says a lot about its owner, and has been renowned in the world as a symbol of prestige and class, as well as having great performance. The vehicle has been made and assembled entirely in Germany. It’s been very well kept and serviced, in fact it runs like a new car. It’s painted in a great looking bright Guards RED color which adds a lot of luxury and sporty appeal to it.
Porsche 944 car was raced around the world and in the British championship called the Porsche Motorsport Championship. Production was limited to three years; 1989, 1990 and 1991. Judging by the miles and the condition of the car, it has been mostly used on the highway and it has also been garage kept! There are no reported manufacturer’s defects on this vehicle. A never-smoked-in before beauty that looks great and smells clean.
The engine is one of the most powerful in the segment – runs strong and smooth provides the power you have come to expect from a Porsche.
As the saying goes, “diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” and that describes the story behind this 911 SC to a tee. Bought as a gift for his wife, the seller of this car quickly found out that he should have shopped at Tiffany, when his wife decided she needed a car that was easier to drive while sipping a latte.
Introduced in 1978, the 911 SC featured a 3.0-liter engine with Bosch Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. With 204 bhp, razor sharp handling, and the distinct styling, the 911 SC has become a favorite in the Porsche lineup.
This low mileage Guards Red over black stunner for sale in Tucson, Arizona exemplifies what a 911 SC should be.
I bought this awesome Porsche for my Fiancé as a Birthday/Wedding gift last month from a reputable broker. She drove it for a few miles and decided that she would rather have an automatic one! Are you kidding me?
Reason, I asked? Quote “I can’t hold my Starbucks!!” Are you kidding me?
So, here is an absolutely drop dead gorgeous, 1982 Porsche 911SC that is in very nice condition inside and out. This is a totally solid low mileage car that is a blast to drive. It is a very clean, unmolested car that has been very well kept over the years. This Targa is number 243 of only 2,426 vehicles imported for the US market in 1982. This car has lived in Arizona since 1994 and was bought new in December of 1981 at Lee Klinger Porsche Audi in Highland Park, IL. This Targa had an original MSRP of $39,500 all the back in 1982! This is a 4 owner car that is fully documented and has a FULL service history since brand new and mileage verified through service receipts.
The Porsche 964 was a 911 that wore many hats. Available in the usual Turbo and non-Turbo guise, this was the 911 that introduced all-wheel drive to the equation in normally aspirated models. In 1994, a Speedster version arrived on the scene and along with the race ready RS variant, a US market RS America, based on the Carrera 2, was offered. Along with the multitude of different models, one could request the widebody option, which gave owners the look of the Turbo without the added cost, or horsepower, for that matter. This C4 for sale in Florda is the recipient of an extensive rebuild in Germany and is a sharp example of one of those rare widebody non-Turbos.
You are looking at an extremely rare 1994 Porsche Carrera 4 wide body. There were only 254 964 Carrera 4’s made for the US market, and this one is simply stunning. It is original polar silver color exterior, and was completely restored from the ground up. The interior is wrapped in alcantara with red stitching. The engine and transmission were rebuilt during the restoration. This car is absolutely gorgeous. The vehicle was restored in Germany, and has been fully documented and completely TUV certified. You must see this vehicle in person to truely appreciate the craftsmanship and quality that went into this Carrera 4. There are hundreds of documented photos of this vehicle during its rebuild. For more information or photos, please email us.
The odometer still shows the original miles of 111,000 when the vehicle was purchased before the rebuild. The owner decided not to roll the mileage to 0, and chose to leave it with it’s original miles. Please note, the vehicle was completely rebuilt from the tub up. More pictures are available on our website.
If it weren’t for the existence of the 912, the venerable Porsche 911 might not still be with us. When it was introduced as Porsche’s entry level model in 1965, it initially outsold the 911 and was discontinued in 1969 to make way for the mid-engined 914, a joint venture sports car between Porsche and Volkswagen. These days, the 912 is often passed up for its more powerful sibling, but these four cylinder sports cars were engineered just as well and added an element of greater efficiency and affordability to the 911 range. Incidentally, the 100,000th Porsche produced was, in fact, a 912 Targa outfitted for Police use. This 912 Coupe for sale in Ohio isn’t a concours example of the breed, but is rather rust free and in good enough nick to enjoy on a regular basis.
This 1967 Porsche 912 CPE is a strong and reliable driver. It’s a 5-speed with a big bore kit that I’d get in and drive anywhere. Here are some points of interest:
-VIN# 458393; Engine# 746358
-Fresh tune-up, plugs, points, cap, timing, valves adjusted
-Solex carbs rebuilt and sync’d
-New Bilsteinsport rear shocks
-New Koni front inserts
-Gas tank cleaned and sealed
-Excellent Bridgestone Invictas, 195-65-15, Original date-matched chromies
-Excellent interior, No speaker holes in the door panels, replacement dash included
-No rust issues, some repairs professionally done
-One windows-out respray in the original color…Windows went back in with all new seals
-Clear title in hand
This car is being sold to make room for its replacement. It’s an excellent candidate for a working restoration…drive and enjoy it while you restore, or just drive and enjoy. Offered at $17,300.00 to a good home. Thanks for looking.
Pre 1970s 911s have seen prices skyrocket over the last decade, to the point where they are rather unattainable for enthusiasts of average means.…
As car enthusiasts, we all had that poster of an exotic car hanging on our bedroom wall when we were younger. One of the cars that made the rounds in my room was this very car, an Arena Red 993 Turbo. This car was the culmination of over twenty years of experimentation with turbochargers in the 911. The addition of all-wheel drive made this car a much more tame prospect than its predecessors and you won’t mistake this for anything but the hot 911 with that sculpted, body colored wing. This 911 Turbo for sale in Ohio has just over 30,000 miles on the clock and includes more aggressive sports seats along with the rear seat delete option.
