1978 Porsche 911SC

There is something about the design of the 911SC, and in a similar vein the later 3.2 Carrera, that always draws me in. Porsche’s reworking of the 911’s iconic shape beginning with the 964 has its own appeal, but I remain more drawn to the earlier model’s lines and, I’ll admit, I have always loved the whale tail. Where some find it discordant with the curve of the 911’s rear, I find that it provides balance to the overall shape front to rear. The 911SC was also the model that insured Porsche would continue to refine and evolve this quirky sports car to be enjoyed by enthusiasts for decades to come; in sum, it cemented the legacy. Today’s car takes us back to the inception of the model: a 1978 Porsche 911SC located in Missouri, which has seen around 119,000 miles. At introduction these cars utilized a 3.0 liter flat-6 mated to the 5-speed 915 transmission to drive 180 hp to the rear wheels. Acceleration would be considered modest by today’s standards, but when propelling less than 2600lbs it’s certainly sufficient to provide a good deal of motoring enjoyment.

1978 PORSCHE 911SC 2 DOOR COUPE CLASSIC WITH 119XXX MILES 0-62 in 7 seconds This car is in my opinion is about 85% perfect, it needs new seal’s on the doors, trunk, hood, and sunroof. It is in need of a little paint work, needs a new head liner, sunroof needs re alined. I have this car registered as a Historical Car, as you can see from the pictures this is an amazing car, starts, rides, and drives as good as it did when it was brand new. This Porsche is well preserved and of collectible quality. Mostly all original.

The lack of any interior shots is slightly disconcerting, but the brightness and apparent quality of the exterior paint might provide us with some consolation that the interior has seen a similar level of care. My preference would be for a set of black Fuchs to enhance the contrast with the red paint but the red Fuchs we see here are certainly striking. As the seller notes, this car is far from perfect but overall it appears in relatively good condition. On auction with no reserve, bidding is currently at $12,100, a very reasonable price for an SC of this vintage. I’d expect bidding to take this up to around $15,000 and at that price I think any buyer will be getting an excellent classic 911.

10K Friday: Poor Man’s Porsches – 914 v. 924

While I’ve spent a lot of time on 10K Fridays looking for the most car for your money, today we’re going to take a different path and look at the least Porsche for your money. Sound a bit strange? Well, while other Porsche models have taken off in value or are on the verge of being completely unaffordable, it’s refreshing to know you can still get a nice quality Porsche on a budget. Could you get into a beaten 944 Turbo for this money? Yes, and perhaps if you’re looking for a performance car that would be a better choice. But in the true spirit of the creation of both the 914 and 924, I want to look at the most simple versions of both of these cars. Which would be the one for you? Let’s start with the 914:

Year: 1972
Model: 914
Engine: 1.7 liter flat-4
Transmission: 4-speed manual
Mileage: 100,000 mi
Price: $7,500 Buy It Now

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1972 Porsche 914 on eBay

1972 914 porsche from california new tires fuel injected very rust free for more info call dennis 847 521 9442

I have to admit, I’m a more recent convert to thinking clean 914s are pretty cool. They’re not the most attractive by any measure, but they have a Lotus-like simple design. Think of this car as the Porsche Europa and it makes a little more sense. Pop the top and you’ve got a fun, simple targa design. This model has some upgraded alloys and looks reasonably clean. Miles are lower and the price – $7,500 – wouldn’t get you into much of any other Porsche; that is, except the underdog 924:

The 924 is such a clean and elegant design, it’s nice to see them in their original spec. Sure, they sprouted flares, spoilers and big wheels and became more aggressive but the original design is still impressive. With that engine running well, you’ll be in the mid-30 mpg range cruising in what is still a very aerodynamic design today. In Guards Red over tan, this is a great looker:

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1981 Porsche 924 on eBay

Runs and drives very well. The body and paint are in very good condition. The interior is in good shape, but the seats have rips and the dash is cracked. Has a clear title.

Yes, the engine is anemic, and like many of the early 924/944 variants the dash is now cracked. But for a full $1500 less than the 914, this package is really quite neat. Like the Targa roof on the 914? Well, most of the top of the 924 is removable and ultimately the experience isn’t that different. This particular 924 was well equipped and with very low miles seems in great shape! The price is high for a non-2.5 924, but considering the condition it would be a better deal than buying a worse-condition one and trying to restore it. Not many love the 924, but it is pretty amazing that nearly two decades after it’s launch the 968 was still looking fresh with effectively this same design.

Which would I choose? For me, it’s a no-brainer – I’d choose the 924 over the 914 any day. As an affordable classic and entry level car in the Porsche world, it’s still unappreciated and values reflect that, but it’s a clean and neat design that can be owned on a strict budget – not something that can be said of many Porsches!

2001 Porsche 911 Turbo

I have been a bit remiss in failing to ever feature any interesting examples of the 996. The model in general tends to be unbeloved by Porsche enthusiasts for reasons that are clear to just about everyone: the design, especially at the front, isn’t strong and as the first model to switch from the 911’s traditional air-cooled engine to the now standard water-cooled engine, the 996 was scorned. That lack of love, however, brings with it one excellent feature: value. A well-performing 996 can at times be had at a significant discount relative to its classical brethren, such as the car featured here. Here we have a 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo located in Atlanta that has seen just shy of 32,000 miles and comes in the always excellent shade for any fast Porsche, Speed Yellow. With 420 hp being delivered to all four wheels the 996 Turbo is a very quick car that will easily outperform most of its predecessors.

With a Buy It Now of $45,981 this car can be had at a pretty reasonable cost. That’s similar money to what we’ve seen a few 930s sell for and it’s significantly less than the price of a 1989 930 and the 993 Turbo. And that’s what makes the 996 appealing. Sure, the engine is water cooled and the headlights look silly, but for performance dollars you’re hard pressed to find better Porsche value on the market today. The collector market will likely never have much appreciation for these cars other than in their various GT iterations, so they shall forever live as cars to be driven. And, frankly, that’s just fine.

Tuner Tuesday: 1975 Ruf Carrera RS

Without a doubt, Ruf is the supreme tuner of Porsches – notably the turbo models. Their legendary performance is the stuff of dreams for enthusiasts and nightmares for competitors; Ruf simply defines the market. Ruf Automobiles is also one of the few select tuners which carry their own build tags, renaming the original Porsche-manufactured cars to be known as Rufs when they leave the factory. But as with all companies, Ruf started on a much smaller scale in 1975, turning out modified 911s that hinted at their future as a premier tuner. Today there is one such model for sale, a early Ruf-modified Carrera RS:

The original 2.7 RS is a bit of a legend, and combined with the upgrades from Ruf you have a formidable combination. Having undergone a full restoration this car certainly looks the part. Despite this, the asking of this Ruf creation is only around a third of what a real RS would set you back. Is it worth it? While some of the originality has been lost, this Ruf will certainly out perform the original RS in just about every measure. Were it my money, I think I could certainly live with the difference, but then I’m well out of my league looking at this ride. Still, a man can dream, and I think this is a dream-worthy ride by anyone’s measure.

Motorsport Monday: 2006 Porsche Cayman S

If you want to hit the track in a Porsche, there are many ways to do it. You can buy an old 911, spend a ton of money modifying it and keeping it running. You can buy an even older 911, spend a ton of money modifying it, and even more keeping it running. But if you want a great handling, well set up flat-6 car that’s both competitive and easy on the wallet – in Porsche terms – is to look towards the Cayman. I instructed a friend with a Cayman S a few years ago at Monticello and got a chance to drive his then-new PDK Cayman S back to back with another friend’s track-biased Lotus Elise.

In the twisties, the Cayman didn’t have the go-cart feel of the Lotus for sure, but considering it completely stock, it wasn’t far off and it sure pulled harder on the straights! It was also much more forgiving and less-pucker inspiring than the Lotus; I’ve driven that particular Lotus on several occasions at several different tracks, and while it never got out of shape much at all during my drives the spinning top image was never far from my mind. When I drove the Porsche, that image couldn’t have been farther from my head – it was rock solid and confidence inspiring. Now a few years on, the Cayman has become a very popular race option and today’s example has been fully kitted for the track:

We have over $90K in building this car, start racing today for a fraction of that. I am happy to answer any questions about the car during business hours-843 614 1516

To answer questions we are getting about lap times:

In 2013:

COTA- 2:33.3

ATL- 1:37.3

RRR- 1:17.5

VIR- 2:08.4

more photos at: autometricsmotorsports.com

The seller claims $90K invested, and that sounds about right from the look and build sheet. I’m not a fan of the alternately colored front bumper, but I am a fan of the Interseries classic 917 liveries, and my favorite has to be the Martini Racing “Hippie” 917 colors that appeared at both Le Mans on the 917LH and Watkins Glen on the 917K. Somehow, the swooping lines really suit the Cayman’s profile to me. Otherwise, I can’t say that there’s much I’d change here. It’s a solid build which I think is appropriately priced. It’s treading on early 911 GT3 street model money, and for the long term that’d be the smart car to buy. But if you want to have fun without worrying about long-term collect-ability, it’s pretty hard to beat this package in a Porsche!

1986 Porsche 944 Turbo

The Porsche 944. For years looked down upon air-cooled purists as the Porsche for those of lesser means, these well balanced hatchbacks have become the darling of the track day set and have been lauded for their merits as a machine that purists can enjoy on a relative budget. While the 924 from which it was derived gets chided on occasion for being slow, you won’t run into that issue with a car like this ’86 944 Turbo for sale in California.

1988 Porsche 924S Special Edition – No Reserve

A few months ago was the last time we featured a nice Porsche 924S. That particular 1988 Porsche 924 Special Edition was the same model that I’m writing up today, but unlike that car this particular model has the original staggered phone dials and shows off that neat model-specific interior a little more. The 924S remains a solid value with clean looks, great performance and low ownership costs. Today’s example looks quite stealthy dressed in black, and kitted out with most of Porsche’s “go faster” bag of tricks from the 1980s these last of the run were the fastest normally aspirated 924s produced:

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1988 Porsche 924S SE on eBay

Selling our 1998 Porsche 924SE
This was the last year Porsche made the 924 & this is a true “real” special edition “SE” model

In 1988, the 924S’ final year of production, power increased to 160 bhp (119 kW; 162 PS) matching that of the previous year’s Le Mans spec cars and the base model 944 (itself detuned by 3 bhp (2 kW; 3 PS) for 1988). This was achieved using different pistons which raised the S’ compression ratio from 9.7:1 to 10.2:1, the knock-on effect being an increase in the octane rating, up from 91 RON to 95. This made the 924S slightly faster than the base 944 due to its lighter weight and more aerodynamic body.

(Copied from wikipedia under “special models” -) US market SE:
Black only paint scheme with optional SE Edition decal. Equipped with manual steering, manual windows and door locks, sunroof delete, radio delete, AC delete, cruise delete, passenger side door mirror delete, wider 15×7 phone dial alloys for the rear while retaining 15×6 in front, and the M030 package which included stiffer springs and Koni shocks. The cars had a unique lightweight gray knit cloth upholstery (which deteriorated very quickly) with maroon pinstriping, and maroon carpeting. The sunroof, A/C, cruise, power steering, passenger door mirror, and radio could be added back optionally.
This car has sunroof delete , 4wd disc, koni adjustable coilovers , period correct stereo ,air cond, new Avon tires, fresh tune up, everything works as it should & runs beautiful!!
The car is not perfect (a few wear marks in drivers seat ,a couple stone chips in windshield & the paint/body is (in my opinion) a 6 out of 10 . She shows well ,is very well maintained by an enthusiast & handles superb.
This is a no reserve auction going to the highest bidder,!! Buyer pays shipping , I am happy to assist if needed, also I can answer any questions or take more pictures if you like! Thanks for watching & happy bidding/ good luck!!

It’s nice to see a no reserve auction to see what this model will bring. Often 924s are in a horrible state of disrepair or seem to be in incredible condition, and values or asking prices therefore also are pretty polarized. The last 924S SE I wrote up had the decals missing on this car, slightly less miles but failed to sell in the $5,000 – $6,000 range. This car presents pretty well for a driver in the photos and seems to be pretty honestly presented, but despite that bidding is quite low at $1,700 at time of writing with a few days left. I’d suspect this car will struggle to break mid-$4000 range – a price at which it’s a heck of a deal in my opinion. If they had only called it “Club Sport”, people would be paying 3 to 4 times that rate for one of these models…

Supercharged 1993 Porsche 928 GTS – No Reserve

Here’s something we don’t come across every day: a 1993 Porsche 928 GTS with a Vortech supercharger capable of producing 600+ hp. Tuned Porsches are not uncommon, nor is it uncommon to come across base model cars that have been modded to mimic their much more powerful production rivals. In almost every case, however, those cars possess an equal amount of ‘show’ to go along with their ‘go’. Some of the tuner cars are downright wild! This 928 GTS, on the other hand, is almost boring. From the outside, it looks like any other stock Grand Prix White 928 with a stout 345 hp coming from its 5.4 liter V8. Open the hood and the potential of this car is revealed. With a supercharged built motor, the seller claims 450+ hp at a fairly easy going 5.5 psi and over 600 hp if we crank it up to 11. It’s difficult for any Porsche to truly qualify as a sleeper but if there ever was one, then a car like this would probably be it.

It goes without saying that a car such as this one will not suit everyone. But I’ll give the seller credit, it’s ballsy to put a car like this up for auction with no reserve. There has been a ton of bidding action so far but the price remains fairly reasonable at $25,001. That’s actually a substantial discount relative to the price at which a 928 GTS would typically sell, which frankly isn’t too surprising. Regardless, have the car checked out, talk to the seller, and if everything appears in good order, you’d have a car that could surprise quite a few people out on the roads!

10K Friday: Big Coupe Off – 560 SEC v. 633 CSi v. 928

Today we’re going to have a slightly different flavor for 10K Friday – big coupes. All three of today’s cars represented the peak of their respective brands when they were new and all three have achieved cult followings and collector status. Yet all three do their jobs in very different ways. We’ve got a last of the breed 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC, a beginning of the run European-model Porsche 928 5 speed, and a middle of the run E28 switch-over 1983 BMW 633 CSi. Which would be your Coupe du Jour? Let’s start with the Mercedes-Benz:

This car certainly looks pretty clean in the photos, and miles are right about where you’d want them. Price seems to be really great for the condition and claimed “museum quality” status. While that may be an exaggeration, the car does appear well kept. In out last executive sedan shootout, the Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL was pretty soundly defeated by the newer Audi S8 and BMW 740i; but in this case, the 560 is the newest of the three and in the best condition. I love the pillar-less design of these coupes, black is an appropriate color (though probably not what I would have chosen) and aside from the radio, it appears all original. It sure looks like a lot of car for your coin – but will this “German Corvette” sway your decision?

The early 928s, like the early 6 series, are the cleanest of the designs, especially in Euro-trim. While they’re not the most aggressive looking, it’s amazing how fresh the design still looks now 35 years later. This particular model is one of the better ones to look at for enthusiasts, with a 5 speed, red exterior and that crazy psychedelic interior:

While it sounds like it needs a mechanical freshening, the condition this car is presented in is impressive and the miles look believable. If you want an early 928 that would be collector status, I think this one fits the bill perfectly. The 5 speed coupled with the European motor gave a lot more motivation than the U.S. market saw until the end of the run. Yes, it has needs, but I feel the price appropriately reflects those needs and this one surely is the looker of the group. But if Porsche repair bills are a little too scary for you to contemplate, how about this BMW?

The 6 series is on an upward tick in value, following the steadily appreciating E30 and newly rising E28 models. While I think the early Euro-cars are the best looking of the run, without a doubt the best drivers are the later E28-derived models such as this one. White over blue probably wouldn’t be everyone’s first choice, but this car is presented as an all-original 1 owner car:

So unlike the 928, lots of service to get it back running, but also some time needed to finish sorting the details. For me, the mid-range 6s in the 1980s are the least appealing of the run, but they’re nice drivers, pretty reliable and long lived, and certainly will appreciate if maintained over the coming years. Though this car looks rough in the photos, I think with some time and attention the exterior would really sharpen up quite a bit, though the interior also needs attention. As with the 928, the price in part reflects the need for work, though while I think the 928 price is more or less spot-on, I think this price may be a little high still considering the work needed, overall condition and miles on the car.

Were it my money, it’s down to the Mercedes and Porsche. The 560 looks pretty immaculate, especially considering the price. The logical side of me says “STAY AWAY” from the 928, but I love the color combination, the interior, the manual transmission, and European build. Those details would just be too much for me to overcome and enough to push the better Angel off my shoulder.

Which would you choose?

2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Let’s get back to featuring Porsche performance rather than beauty. We’ve shown recently a few examples of track-focused cars, either those with extensive work from tuners or fully stripped and prepped track machines built by individual enthusiasts. Each category brings with it its own appeal. Here we’ll feature Porsche’s own example of such a car: a 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS in what has always been my favorite color combination that Porsche offered, Black on Orange. At this point it’s fairly well known that Porsche no longer plans to offer the GT3 RS with 3 pedals, but rather all will come standard with PDK. I understand the reasoning behind their decision even if I don’t necessarily like it. What that means for us then is that the 997 GT3 RS will be the last of the breed to be offered with a 6-speed manual. For any buyers looking to row their own gears, choices won’t get too much more modern than the car we see here. While this car isn’t from the final evolution of the 997, with 415 hp from its 3.6 liter flat-6 it’s no slouch either.

Bidding on this car is currently at $110,100 with 7 days left to go. With no reserve on we will definitely see a sale and at the very least I’ll have my eye on this one to get a sense of the market for a 997 GT3 RS. Anyone looking for a track-focused 911 with 6 gears and 3 pedals will be hard pressed to find a car better than one of these.
