1998 Porsche 911 Turbo Ruf Conversion – Revisit

If you felt that the 1998 Porsche 911 Turbo Ruf Conversion we featured last month was too pricey, it remains available and the seller has now lowered the car’s price $6,000 to $68,888. There were a lot of people interested in looking this car when we originally posted it, and now it’s a little more attainable. Sure seems like a pretty good deal for a lot of car!

1998 Porsche 911 Turbo Ruf Conversion – REVISIT

The below post originally appeared on our site July 22, 2013:

Last week, we reviewed a beautiful white 1998 993 Twin Turbo converted to Ruf Turbo R specifications. They say lightning never strikes twice, but Ruf has never been one to listen to convention or limitations. Surely the most elite of the German tuners, Ruf automobiles demand a premium over their already expensive Porsche cousins. However, there is a difference in the market between a car with an original Ruf build certificate and one that has been converted by the owner. This example looks cracking in silver, and like the white car is not an original Ruf car but a converted example.

While a “normal” 993 Twin Turbo will set you back around $60,000 to $70,000, the white lighting we showed last week was asking $110,000 despite not being an original Ruf. That’s a serious amount of “extra” over the standard car – so much so, that you could nearly buy two! However, the most valuable aspect of the Ruf cars is, and has always been, the motors they have developed. Unlike the white car, this silver example does not appear to have the valuable motor swap, but does sport the same suspension and body kit, along with a grab to the Porsche parts bag for the Turbo S rear wing. In comparison to the white car, then, this car is more of a replica without the motor.

For $35,000 dollars less, I feel like I could live with a few less horsepower, especially without the benefit of the all wheel drive saving me when I dipped a little too far into the loud pedal. Additionally, I think the silver flies (literally) a little lower on the radar, and I can’t express enough how glad I am that those beautiful Ruf alloys aren’t black. Sure, it has more miles on the clock, but it looks to be in just about perfect condition and without the more expensive motor, it’ll set you back less at the next servicing. To me, this is a slightly better value than the white car, with a price closer to the high end of the standard 993 TT market but with some nice looking upgrades. Without either being actual Ruf cars, I’d drive the silver one comfortable in both the fact that I had a fantastic looking, exceptionally fast car and $35,000 in the bank to help pay the bills.

1973 Porsche 911T

With the discontinuation of the four cylinder 912 in 1970, Porsche was in need of an entry level 911. The 911T, introduced in 1967, effectively filled this gap. In 1971, the engine in the T was enlarged, along with the rest of the 911 range, to 2.4 liters, providing 130 horsepower in “T” form. Also new, much to the chagrin of some involved in competition, was a new gearbox with a traditional H pattern in place of the dogleg first gear arrangement in models prior. This 911T for sale in California is said to be an original car, owned by the original owner for 28 years and now has showing just under 66,000 miles on the clock.

Year: 1973
Model: 911T

1973 Porsche 911T. This is an authentic, original example of a Porsche 911T. All original and complete car, a very nice 40 year old example of a Porsche 911T. Odometer reads 65,762 original miles. Have all of the original owners and previous owners receipts showing progression of mileage since 1973. First owner owned the car for almost 28 years.

Vehicle/Chassis Number: 9113100329
Engine Number: 6130237

Assume this to be a matching numbers Porsche because none of the work receipts show any evidence of engine replacement. To be one hundred percent sure you can contact Porsche and for a fee they will check and provide a “Certificate of Authenticity.”

Fuel Injection
Good, strong running car, shifts and stops as it should
Typical small amount of smoke at start up as most of these early Porsches do
(5) original Porsche Fuchs wheels including the spare
Hella front driving lights, period correct with correct horn grille mounting hardware
Current up to date California registration, with title or pink slip in hand
Newer interior, tan leatherette seats and rear panels
Have additional leatherette material to do both car doors and all of the dash inserts. Will be included with the car
The original radio dash plate will be included with the car. Although no original radio
Period correct carpeting with correct black binding
Custom made matching carpet floor mats for the front and rear
(4) original ignition keys and the rare factory red valet key
(2) original 911T owners manuals included
Original radio manual, owners maintenance folder, and receipt folder from Porsche
The original Porsche tool kit and jack included
(2) steel jack plates that fit into the square tube for jacking up the vehicle included
Porsche bra for the front of the car included
Yokohama tires all in good shape as you can tell from the photos
The car has been switched to a single battery but all wiring is still intact
Kenwood CD in the dash with a 10 disc changer included
Titanium advantage adjustable strut bar included
Auto alarm included

This car has been extremely fun to own, looks great, has bright chrome and still turns a few heads around town. The Porsche has been repainted once as far as I can tell by others. Not the best job, certainly not a quality show car paint finish. It’s a good driver quality paint job that is starting to show its age. Meaning, paint chips, dull spots and one area of cracking. The rear license plate panel needs some attention as well.

Bottom edges of rocker panels need some cosmetic attention, although very solid (see second to last photo). A high quality paint job would make the car absolutely beautiful! The Porsche also has dash cap over the original dash. I have never removed it so I do not know what condition the dash is in. The original Porsche clock is not working as is true with most of these clocks. The rubber inserts on all of the bumpers could be replaced. The front and rear windshields could use new rubber seals. Although not leaking, the previous owner added clear silicone to the top of the front windshield seal.

Thank you for looking at my Porsche, feel free to ask as many questions as you feel necessary. I am happy to help assist you with the auto transport experience.

This isn’t a bad example of a 911T, but a few things hold it back. First, if I was selling this car, I would have made it a point to get the authenticity certificate from Porsche. If you are selling the car as original, I wouldn’t let the buyer assume anything. This document is a must have in this case. Second, it’s not exactly original if it has had a respray and interior refurbish. But, there may be an upside to that because if this was an original paint/interior car, prospective buyers would have been less apt to mess with the patina.

1985 Porsche 928S – REVISIT

The 1985 Porsche 928S we featured back in April failed to meet its reserve on its initial listing and has been relisted. This Reserve Auction originally was listed with a Buy It Now price of $23,500 and the relisting shows a reduced Buy It Now price of $18,500. For reference, this 928 was listed about a month ago and sold for $17,680. That car was slightly higher mileage than this one, so the new price listed here seems more inline with the current 928 market.

1985 Porsche 928S – REVISIT

The below post originally appeared on our site April 5, 2013:

It’s rather amazing that 36 years after its introduction, the Porsche 928 still looks fresh. In 1977, it must have appeared to have arrived from another planet. Integrated bumpers, a streamlined shape and potent V8 power were meant to take over where the 911 was about to leave off. Funny then, that the 911 has carried on almost twenty years after the last 928 rolled off the line. These grand tourers are beginning to creep up in value, but are still lagging a bit behind most 911s. Buy a really cheap one, though, and it could put you in the poor house. This 928S for sale near Philadelphia is a low mileage minter with the desirable 5-speed manual gearbox.

Price: $23,500 Buy It Now

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1985 Porsche 928S on eBay

You are bidding on a 2 owner 1985 Porsche 928S. This is a RARE 5-speed manual transmission,less than 500 units built this model year. Automatics dominated 1985 sales and are more available and much cheaper. Vehicle has 25,300 original miles. (This will change as I drive it when weather permits). Car comes with original purchase and service records, all owner’s manuals and key set and documentation service in the DC area. This is not the six thousand dollar 928 you hear about. (The wheels and tires alone would cost almost that much)!

Now what you SHOULD worry about……..in the last 2 months….NEW timing belt with NEW Pork tensioner system, NEW water pump. NEW rear coupler bushings (PIA to replace) flushed radiator and changed oil and filter. All other fluids clean and full (brakes, transaxle). Front and rear wheel bearings checked and adjusted as necessary. Breaks are great. ALL electronics and on board computers are working as they should. The back of my fuse/relay panel is all properly connected grey wires. The #42 fuse for the fuel pump is segregated. In other words the electronics are as they should be with NO jumpers or other homemade electronic configurations!!!

Front tires (Bridgestone Potenza) almost new 235s and the rear tires 285s are new. The wheels “real” Porsche Carrera III, 18”. The rear wheels were professionally refinished and LOOK NEW. The front wheels look great with a just a “smudge” on a spoke on the right front. If wheels and tires make a car…..consider this “made.” As you can see in the pictures the car really sits nice. I think the wheel/ tire combination is perfect. I have the stock wheels and almost new tires to go with the car at my asking price. I have a NEW Lizard short shifter ready to be installed. I will include with asking price.

What else….you can do a lot to a six thousand dollar 928 but it will cost you another 20 to make it as nice as this one. BODY/PAINT/INTERIOR all near period perfect. New Lloyd’s floor mats. It was cleaned up of any imperfections, scratches ,door dings, etc. before I bought it. The paint on this car looks great. Porsche Guards Red. A few repaired stone chips and 1 small size ding on exhaust cut out. (I don’t notice it) NO evidence of it ever being in an accident. Other than that I can honestly say this is a well cared for 25,000 mile interior. Interior is a 9 out of 10? OK so what are the cons? A few drips of oil from rear cam covers. Not enough to worry about. Nine dollar part and labor (I’m guessing 2-3hrs).

The rear hatch sounds like it’s working but isn’t. The professional 928 mechanic I use thinks we can adjust it. That being said…this car has been gone over and repaired by a “well known” 928 expert in the Mid Atlantic/North East region. He’s a good guy and if you’re really in the game I think we can get him to speak with you. The service manuals are a 9 set binder. I have a condensed version that is one manual but I have the 6 CD Jim Morehouse manual. Please call with any questions. With the above exceptions, EVERYTHING WORKS! This is a great ride. 610-368-3673. Good luck bidding. I may end auction early for a local sale or trade.

The last 928 we featured was a 1983 model and was listed at $22,500. It had similar mileage but didn’t have the later 5.0 liter engine that this car does. It seems that extremely low mileage 928s from the mid 1980s are reaching into the low $20,000 range, but if you look hard enough, there are still examples out there that can be had in the $15,000 to $18,000 range. The 5-speeds seem to bring a little bit more cash, since they are more rare and tend to be favored by more hardcore enthusiasts. Reach any lower than $15,000, though, and it could be a gamble.

1973 Porsche 911E Autocross/Track

Another 1973 911E? Yes, another 1973 911E. My previous post was a beautifully restored Yellow 911E that was almost completely original. For this post, I’ve swung the pendulum entirely in the other direction with this autocross prepped Porsche 911 located back in my native state of Georgia. While this car began its life as a 1973 911E, that is of little consequence with regard to its current state, other than the body design. The engine is a lightly modified 3.2 liter flat-6 from a 1987 Carrera, which has been mated to a 5-speed manual from the 911SC. Along with a variety of body panel replacements, the interior has been fully gutted, leaving only the essentials. I’m a big fan of light cars so a build like this that placed a particular emphasis on lightness has great appeal to me. That lightness does, of course, come with a price because as the seller notes, while the car can be street driven, this is not a car for the street.

I built this car for Porsche Club Autocross competition and an occasional track event. Nothing exotic, just a light car with a bullet-proof engine. It weighs 1988 lbs and has approximately 225 horsepower. I spent a great deal of time removing extra weight from the car. As Colin Chapman once said: “Simplify, then add lightness”. The engine is from a 1987 Carrera. It was carefully rebuilt with just light modifications, to keep it tractable and reliable. It starts easily and runs cleanly to redline. If you like to spend all day fiddling and adjusting to keep things running, this is not your car. I started with a solid sunroof coupe and welded the sunroof shut. The rear fenders were replaced with steel SC flares. Both bumpers and the Ducktail are fiberglass from GT Racing. The hood was custom fabricated from Kevlar and fiberglass. The Fuchs 7″ and 8″ wheels were polished, but are a bit scarred now. I am proud to say that the project was a success. Since 2000, I have won countless autocross trophies at local, regional and national events. Why am I selling? Well, I have two college-age kids, I’m getting past my ‘go fast’ days and I have another 911 that I got married in. What does it need? Tires and gas.

For me, part of the appeal of driving a car like this comes from reaping the fruits of your labor. Having a project come together and result in a fast, fun-to-drive car, provides a great deal of satisfaction as reward for hours of hard work. But not everyone has the time, patience, or even desire to undertake such a project. In that case, a prepped car such as this one presents an interesting opportunity. I’ll be honest here, I don’t know what it would cost to do this build from scratch. At this time, bidding on the car is at $20,100 with the reserve yet to be met. That doesn’t seem egregious, but as stated, the reserve is still on.

2004 Porsche 911 GT3

Read through most automotive blogs comparing newer sports cars and you’ll often find the same entry in the comments: “X car’s purchase price buys you a lot of Porsche Cayman.” For good reason, too, as the Cayman has become the performance benchmark for an entire category of both new and used sports cars. To borrow a line from everyone’s playbook, the Cayman’s purchase price buys you a lot of Porsche 996 GT3. A performance staple in Europe as a track day special starting around 1999, the GT3 was the street going version of the GT3R and the GT3 Cup. While most car companies build performance cars that people buy and modify to take to the track, Porsche built a modified track version of its performance car for you to buy right from them. Stripped out and with boosted performance, handling and braking, the GT3 was only a touch slower than the more powerful Turbo. The U.S. first received the GT3 in 2004, the year of today’s model:

This particular GT3 has the PCCB ceramic brake option, an option which I think honestly most drivers could do without, but does give you the attention-grabbing yellow calipers. With 381 horsepower on tap – over 50 more than a brand new Cayman S – performance of these cars is still staggeringly good. This is a car that you can comfortably arrive at the track in, blow the doors off most race cars, and then cruise home with the air conditioning on. As with all higher-performance versions of the 911, the GT3 requires more maintenance than a standard car, and it’s a touch more expensive. Known faults with these cars included coolant leaks from glued fittings, but they’re repairable and shouldn’t dissuade a potential buyer from the car in general.

A fair amount of GT3s have seen occasional track duty, but that’s to be expected from what is essentially a track car. This particular model seems to be quite clean and well cared for. The silver is understated but classic Porsche. Probably like most, I think the 996 isn’t the most attractive 911 that’s been produced; but the simple yet aggressive race look of the GT3 would be enough to convince me. Historically special editions of the 911 seem to hold or gain value, so while this may not be the bottom of the GT3 market yet, it could be a good time to get a clean one to drive and hold on to. At $57,500, this is entry level Cayman money – but if it were my money, I’d walk away from the dealership and find one of these special cars to enjoy weekends and the occasional trip to the track.

1973 Porsche 911E (Restored)

Dave Aase was a long-time supplier of vintage Porsche parts for restorations. He passed away in 2011 and what you are looking at is the restoration of his car. In 1973 the 911E featured a 2.3 liter engine with mechanical fuel injection and this car has had its original engine converted from E spec to S spec. Otherwise, this is about as close to ‘new’ as is possible with a restored vehicle, having only recently had its restoration completed.

Make your own sunshine!

This 1973 Porsche 911E Sunroof Coupe is fresh from a full rotisserie restoration. The car is numbers matching (9113201244 / 6231951 engine) and was well equipped with S trim, stabilizer bars tinted glass and a power sunroof. This car was Dave Aase’s personal 911, own a part of history.

Originally Sepia Brown, the “E” has been restored in glorious light yellow paint, Daves favorite color. The paint is immaculate and the color and shine really shows off the perfect panel gaps and precise fit and finish. This car has been completely stripped and no sign of the original brown finish or rust can be found anywhere. All rubber seals, gaskets, stainless trim and moldings have been replaced with new or refinished. Even the windshield is new. The wheels are professionaly refinished and we installed 5 new Dunlop tires. There is a new gas tank installed also.

Looking underneath, the underbody has been restored to new condition both in appearance and function. This was a very solid car to begin with and now that it is completed it is ready to drive up your favorite twisty road or win blue ribbons at concours events. The front swaybar was upgraded.

The interior has been completely restored by Porsche specialists, Autos International in Southern California using only the best materials. Seats, carpet, headliner…all new! Even the trunk is like new and contains the original tool kit with the original fuse packet.

The original engine was completely rebuilt to “S” spec using new pistons/cylinders, connecting rods, camshafts, etc. The original Mechanical Fuel Injection has been retained and is in great working condition. The stacks and Throttle bodies were professionally rebuilt, including boring out to S specs including new linkages, plating and bushings. The heat exchangers are SSI stainless steel heat exchangers are NOS. No corners have been cut anywhere.

The car comes complete with the original owners manual, manual wallet, certificate of authenticity from Porsche and service binder. It has been aligned and is ready to go!

The car looks beautiful and very well restored. At this time, the bidding is a little above $66,000 with the reserve still on. Given that the Buy It Now price is $135,000, we can probably assume that this one is no where near meeting the reserve. That’s a lot of money. I’ve seen standard 911s of this vintage listed at half of this price, but that’s obviously a bit beside the point for someone interested in a fully restored, low mileage collector. This isn’t a driver’s car, but it’s certainly a piece of Porsche history.

2007 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

It seems there are more varieties of 911s than days of the month, but it wasn’t always this way. Some models have come and gone, but one variant that has been a mainstay is this one: the Targa. Somewhat overshadowed by the introduction of the SC Cabriolet in 1983, the Targa has evolved throughout the years, starting as a 911 with a roll hoop and soft top rear section. The soft top gave way to a fixed glass window and was replaced by a large, sliding glass panel in 1996 on the 993. The subsequent generations have stayed true to this sliding glass panel concept, as we see here with this 2007 Targa 4S for sale in Iowa from our friends at EuroWerkz.

Closing Comments: I have enjoyed every minute of owning this car since 2009. In my opinion, it is really the best of all worlds in the 997 911 lineup: wide body without all of the spoilers and intakes, all wheel drive, open air cockpit, yet more rigid and coupe like than a cab, functional rear hatch for a little easier access for a duffle bag on a weekend trip, and a rarer model than a Turbo. Moreover, I put effort to tastefully expand this car’s sporting character than it was originally optioned, by adding the Fabspeed package and GT2 skirts. From top to bottom this car exudes quality and uniqueness while offering an excellent balance of touring and sport. It is a joy to drive and routinely receives positive comments from Porsche-philes as well as people simply admiring a beautiful car.

Reason for sending her to a new home: I had no intention of selling the car until recently when I had the opportunity to buy not one, but two, other of my Porsche 911 dream cars. So, it’s really just a matter of freeing up the funds and the garage space.
Terms: Deposit of $1,000 expected within 24 hours of agreeing to purchase. Title is in hand, free and clear.

While I tend to prefer the classic silhouette of the 911 Coupe, I think I may have changed my mind with this Targa 4S. The chrome trim mirroring the roofline plus the added practicality of the rear hatch goes well with the dark color and eye-catching RG5B wheels. When you first look at this 911, you see a coupe, but look a little closer and you’ll notice the subtle differences. Add in the unique options and you have a 911 that sets you apart from the crowd.

1986 Porsche Carrera

Please join me in giving a warm welcome to our newest contributor at German Cars For Sale Blog, Rob Simkins.

This is a fitting car to serve as my first post here at GCFSB as my father owned the predecessor to this Carrera series, the 911SC, which served as my introduction to the marque. The 3.2 Carreras brought about the revival of the Carrera name, along with an increase in displacement, up from the 3.0 liter engines of the SC, and modest improvements to the drivetrain and braking systems. Perhaps most importantly, they retained classic 911 styling. For any buyer looking for pre-964 styling, the 3.2 Carreras serve as the most refined examples available.

This 1986 Porsche Carrera Coupe is in Iris Blue Metallic with Blue. Iris Blue, code 33P, a unique and desirable color. The car last changed hands in 2005 in Washington State. This car can best be described as a entry level mid year 3.2 Carrera that can be enjoyed and improved upon.

The car starts, runs and drives very nice with plenty of power, good suspension, reactive brakes and handling. Good clutch and sycnros in all gears. The paint has a nice luster and the color is consistant. Gaps are good and the doors shut correctly as does the hood and deck lid.

Interior shows well. Unmodified other than an updated stereo face plate. Stock speaker grills. Crack free dash. Headliner is good. Decent carpets and bright gages. A nonsmokers car. Matching Kuhmo tires all around, recently replaced. A/C blows but not cold. Carfax is posted, minor incident in 2006 on the driver’s side front fender.

Owners manual and jack (no tools or compressor) will be presented to the new owner. This is a nice opportunity to own a driver quality 3.2 Carrera in a unique color with a reasonable price point.

This particular 1986 Carrera looks beautiful in its Iris Blue paint with the standard contrasting black wheels. Both the paint and the interior appear to be in very good condition. Perhaps most importantly for some buyers, the car is more or less original. With a little over 100K miles, $22,500 seems a good price for a car that will likely provide many more years of enjoyable motoring. It was always a treat going for a ride in my Dad’s SC, and I know he regretted the day he had to sell it. Were I in the market for a similar car, though with a few improvements, something like this ’86 3.2 Carrera would likely serve as an admirable replacement.

1991 Porsche 911 Turbo

The 964 iteration of the Porsche 911 fell into a bit of a no-man’s land in terms of collectability for a while but is now gaining a little more of the respect it deserves. This iteration of this venerable sports car had a short run. The first model introduced was the Carrera 4 in 1989, which introduced the notion of an all-wheel drive Carrera to the mainstream. The model range was succeeded a few short years later in 1995 by the much loved 993, the final air-cooled 911. In that short span, there was a good deal of variety in terms of model variants, however. One of the most fearsome was, as usual, the Turbo.

This would be the last rear-wheel drive Turbo that Porsche would unleash. As such, it has started to become a bit of a legend. Introduced in 1990, the 964 Turbo used the same 3.3 liter engine as in the previous Turbos, but was upgraded slightly for better performance, capable of 320 bhp and 332 lb-ft torque. It would not be until 1993 that Porsche would unveil a Turbo based on the new 3.6 liter engine that debuted with the Carrera and Carrera S. The 3.3 Turbo was more common than the 3.6, with 3,660 being built versus 1,500. This 1991 Turbo on offer in California has just shy of 40,000 miles on the clock and comes with a few tasteful performance upgrades.

As usual, Porsche 911 Turbos do not come cheap, no matter the year. But the asking price of $100,000 left me scratching my head. A 911 Turbo of this vintage with anywhere between 20,000 to 40,000 miles should run you between $50,000 and $70,000 at the most. Sure, this Turbo has been breathed on a bit to put performance up there with the best of them and the mileage is quite reasonable, but the seller has an uphill battle in reaching for six figures.

1965 Porsche 356SC Coupe

Until recently, Porsche was not a company known for carrying out model introductions and changeovers at a significant clip. It’s first production model, the 356, lasted for 17 years before being usurped by the 911, a car that has become synonymous with the brand to this day (albeit in a highly evolved state). The year 1965 would mark the end of the road for the 356. Towards the end of the production run, Porsche unveiled the 356SC. This would be the highest horsepower pushrod engine Porsche would produce. At an output of 95 bhp coupled to a vehicle weighing around 2,000 lbs, this made for lively performance for the day, even if many modern motors can beat it off the line. Demand for the 356 remained strong right up to the end and today they fetch impressive sums on the collector market. This 356SC for sale in Florida is an older restoration and retains its original engine and transmission.

Whether it’s an early 911 or a late 356 such as this, the gray on red combination is one of my favorite color combinations for Porsches from this era. One thing I’m not a fan of, however, is the luggage rack on the engine lid. This option always looked a bit awkward and out of proportion, in my opinion. Currently, a good 356SC Coupe will run you about $65,000 to $80,000 on average. Not surprisingly, convertibles in similar nick will bring a bit more. Given this car has a few flaws and is an older restoration, I’d say the asking price is just a little on the high side, but not too far off the mark.
