1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring – REVISIT

With the holidays approaching why don’t we dream a little bit of those really special gifts. The Grand Prix White 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring we featured back in the Spring remains up for sale. The asking price has dropped a notch or two (not that we’d likely notice given what’s still being asked), but like any RS it remains one of the most costly 911s on the market. This one is priced more in line with what we see for a Sport rather than a Touring so it’s going to be a tough sell. But for that money you get one of the best Porsche has produced and a car any 911 aficionado instantly will recognize and lust after.

s-l1600-1

The one-year only Guards Red 1983 Porsche 911SC Cabriolet we featured in late September remains up for a reserve auction. It’s consistently received a bid or two on these auctions right around $50K and now sits with a BIN price that is a little lower than when we first featured it. It’s still a lot of money for a 911SC, but given the low mileage and that these were the first year Porsche produced a Cabriolet for the 911 perhaps it may finally see a sale.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen this Mint Green 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa and since we have featured it before it is technically a revisit. But it’s moved on from its previous seller and been given a cosmetic refresh. I’m not sure if it’s the refresh that’s doing all of the work here or if it’s simply better photography, but the Mint Green exterior certainly looks much better than when Paul originally featured it. It’s one of his favorite Porsche colors and since we’ve been going through most of the rare greens Porsche offered it seemed worthwhile to check back in. According to the previous auction it sold for $62,100 so the asking price here represents a substantial increase. When it sold the air-cooled market was doing pretty well, but it has since backed off. Even if the 964 hasn’t suffered in that regard quite as much as the 911SC and 3.2 Carrera I think this will be a tough sell. There’s said to be only two of them so it’s definitely rare, and they’ve taken care of most of the maintenance items that would have concerned buyers the first time around. We’ll have to see where bidding takes it, but I don’t think that will be to $93K.

This one definitely seemed worth checking back in on since it’s one of the most eye-catching color combinations I’ve come across on a 964, a model known for some wild colors. Back in May we featured this Amethyst Metallic 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe with Cobalt leather interior and it’s still up for sale. The price has been lowered a little bit (down to $75K) but it’s more or less still priced in the same ballpark it was before. That price is by no means low, but I can’t imagine there are many other 911s out there wearing these two colors. Also, it looks like there are some new pictures in better light and it really helps us appreciate the interaction between the colors. I wasn’t sold on it the first time I featured this one; I’ve come around quite a bit now.

The Irish Green 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 remains up for sale with the asking price holding steady at $225K. Given its rare paint-to-sample exterior color and its relatively reasonable pricing I’m actually surprised someone hasn’t snapped this one up. The mileage certainly is higher than many other examples of the Turbo 3.6 we come across, but the Irish Green paint makes it one of the most unique options available. Perhaps some other detail in its history is holding it back?

The Grand Prix White 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera we featured back in May is back up for sale this time with the price reduced by $10K. I don’t know if that reduction will be enough to see it sell, but with its sport seats and wider wheels this 930 has a few interesting options added to what is already a very nice car.

The Oak Green Metallic 1980 Porsche 911SC Coupe we featured back in August remains up for a no reserve auction. Before you wonder how that makes sense (shouldn’t a no-reserve auction result in a sale?), the seller has been dealing with multiple auctions won by non-paying bidders. So let’s hope this one can finally have a true chance at selling. The overall asking price is a little high when we consider mileage and condition. There are certainly areas that need work, but if the price can move a little closer to the mid-20s rather than $30K then it should make for a reasonable opportunity at getting into a classic 911.

I don’t normally revisit a car this quickly, but since I’ve pretty much decided I love this 911 I’m going to break with protocol. The Aubergine 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe is still for sale and the seller has now made his ask clear rather than wait out a reserve auction. Given that bidding in the previous auction only reached $58,783, asking $100K is a substantial leap. Perhaps the seller simply needs the right buyer to come along. It’s certainly a lot for a 911T, but showcasing one of the best colors from its era certainly helps it.

We originally featured this 2006 Mercedes-Benz E55 Estate back in May of 2013 from our friends at EuroWerkz. This car has boomeranged to them with a little bit more miles but presenting just as great as it always has. The E55 AMG Estate needs no introduction here at GCFSB. It’s remarkable that Mercedes-Benz still offers a go-fast E-class Estate in a marketplace that demands vanilla offerings at every turn. But they have bravely carried on through the years, offering this bonkers five-door to us for a decade now. Along with the Geländewagen and AMG GT, this populates the cool corner of the current Mercedes lineup. However, not everyone has around $100,000 to spend on a new family speed machine. This E55 AMG offers a solution around that fiscal sticking point.

The very pretty Diamond Blue Metallic 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe we featured in early June remains up for auction. The seller has added a $34K BIN price to help entice buyers and provide clarity on what sort of price he’s seeking. Previous auctions have fallen a few grand short of that number though so we’ll have to see where this ends. With more than 155K miles this 964 has lead a pretty good life thus far and still presents well, but buyers will have to make sure they’re fully versed on its maintenance to understand any costs that may arise in the near future.

The rare 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo S2 we featured in early June remains up for sale and is still asking the same $150K price. Given its mileage and that the condition suggests it may need a little bit of work it looks like that asking price is proving to be too high, but given the general demand for rare 911 Turbos we may still see this one snapped up.

The Guards Red 1988 Porsche 930 Coupe with Mahogany interior, which we featured back in June, remains for sale. The seller appears to be quite motivated as his asking price continues to come down with each passing auction. It now sits at $112,500 and given the mileage and somewhat rare interior color the pricing doesn’t seem too bad.

Motorsports Monday: 1971 Porsche 911 RSR Martini Racing Tribute – REVISIT

On the verge of three years ago I took a look at a neat 911 Carrera RSR tribute. Rather than take the typical path of copying the IROC cars, the builder of this particular car chose the “Mary Stuart” Martini Racing example to clone. The car was named because the wrap around rear duck-tail spoiler reminded some of the high collars which were the vogue during Mary, Queen of Scots’ reign. With its unique tail offsetting those iconic colors, it is certainly an attention getter. However, the seller has now attempted to shift this car more or less continually since 2013 – first at an asking price of $165,000, then dropping in 2014 to $135,000, and now back up to $165,000 presumably to try to capitalize on the current 911 market. It is without a doubt a neat build and unique execution, so even though it’s unlikely to trade this time around again I thought it was worth another look:

I think I’ve made it pretty clear that I think Martini Racing colors are just awesome. Some people insist everything looks better in “Gulf Blue”, but for me, it’s those Martini stripes that made some of the best looking race cars (and in a very few cases, even improved road cars). Case in point is today’s example; perhaps one of the strangest downforce attempts of the 1970s on a Porsche – the Mary Stuart tailed Martini Racing RSR. While a neat design in some ways, it certainly looks odd from other angles. Today’s 1971 911 is a recreation of the original, but you can’t deny that it looks fantastic in the proper Martini Racing colors of the 1973 RSR:

The very orange Lamborghini colored 2005 Porsche Carrera GT we featured back in March remains for sale. Eye catching does not even begin to describe this car as it melds the insane world of Lambo colors with the staid and elegant lines of a Porsche – or at least as staid as the Carrera GT gets. There is a steep price for that color though even after the seller dropped the price by $200K. There’s certainly a price point where things will being to make sense, but frankly I’m not really sure what it is, especially when we must also consider that this is one of the lowest mileage GTs we’ve come across. For now, we simply wait.

The 1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe we featured back in January 2015 has come back up for sale. Nothing much appears to have changed over that year and a half as it’s still being offered by the same seller, has a similar – though slightly higher – price tag, and only 200 extra miles on the clock. The market went through a bit of a roller-coaster since the last time this 930 was featured and I will be interested to see if it now sells.
