1983 Porsche 911SC Sunroof Coupe

I was hoping to feature a few Porsches this week that represented nice value, but when I saw this one I just couldn’t pass it by. Here we have a Ruby Red Metallic 1983 Porsche 911SC, located in Massachusetts, with Burgundy leather interior (a fantastic color combination) and only 32,380 miles. The SC was the 911 model that really cemented the legacy of this iconic sports car and insured Porsche would continue to produce it to this day. By modern standards the performance from the 3.0 liter flat-6 isn’t going to knock your socks off, but the classic 911 design has aged rather gracefully and these cars still provide the feel and connectedness that so many drivers crave.

Tuner Tuesday: 1998 Dinan S3 BMW M3 Sedan

If earlier’s Sir Mix-A-Lot’s 911 Turbo didn’t quench your lust for all things purple, I’m happy to offer another Barney-colored treat for you. However, unlike the friendly and more than somewhat irritating children’s star, the object of interest here is the very popular and quickly become a classic E36 M3 sedan. Offering practicality, a stiff chassis with lighter weight than the coupes, this car has turned into one of the more sought after BMWs in recent history. This is especially poignant considering the current state of the rest of the 1980s M market; if you don’t jump on the bandwagon now, you’re likely to miss out. Further heightening the appeal of this sedan is the more rare shade of Techno Violet; a polarizing but popular color, and of course the full spectrum of Dinan S3 upgrades. Take a look at this purple people eater:

Tuner Tuesday: 1984 Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible Slantnose Gemballa “935”

Oh, where do we start here? You shouldn’t be surprised that Sir Mix-A-Lot has a wide body, huge bespoilered Porsche 911 Turbo that’s purple; after all, he did tell you he “likes big butts”, and this Porsche’s got back. Rap stars from the 1990s really moved into a new realm of bling; West Coast saw the destruction through twist-and-bounce of countless classic 1960s cars, but rappers like Sir Mix-A-Lot moved into new territory, taking brand new “whips” and modifying them. But the self-proclaimed “Mack Daddy”‘s modern-day pimp style didn’t follow traditional trends of giant America sleds with fuzzy dice; the Sir liked European metal – including this turned up 911 Turbo Convertible Slantnose:

Tuner Tuesday: 1974 BMW 2002 M20 Turbo – REVISIT


The Manofied-modded 1974 2002 M20 Turbo from last month remains up for sale; I still believe the asking price is too high but it’s a great looking build overall. What price would you be willing to pay for this re-imagined obrut?

The below post originally appeared on our site March 25, 2014:

It’s been a few months since I last looked at a 2002 Turbo replica. Like the 924 Carrera GT, the 911 RS and Audi RS2, the 2002 Turbo is one of those rare and expensive car models that spawns a fair amount of recreations. The nice thing about replicas, though, is that you really don’t need to worry about damaging the value of one of the original and expensive models; for enthusiasts looking to buy into that market, you can also usually purchase one of these tributes at a fraction of the price of the original. While the last model I looked at was a pretty true to original replica, today’s example has gone mild to wild with a M20 swap and a turbo thrown in just for fun:

Self-Serve Special – 1984 BMW M635CSi

To round up what has been an excellent week for the S38 motor here at GCFSB, I thought we’d take a look at the Euro version of this car. The M88 is a legendary motor for BMW; powering the M1, it was slightly modified with Motronic fuel injection for the M5 and M635 – where, amazingly, it produced more power than the M1 had. For a long time discarded in favor of the later M6 on U.S. shores, the grey market examples of the M635CSi offer a better power to weight ratio and cleaner European styling. Optional were then-giant 415MM TRX BBS Wheels, along with the requisite Euro-market wipers. Awesome? You bet, and one has popped up on our self-service classifieds:
