Heap of the Week (Part II): 1971 Porsche 911T

The Heap of the Week has been a fun addition for those of us here at GCFSB. Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from searching for and writing up pristine examples of exciting cars and the Heap provides us just that sort of excursion. This week we have another potential project Porsche to feature. Unlike the high starting cost of last week’s 1962 356 Cabriolet Super, this 1971 Porsche 911T should be able to be had for much less money and could provide for a worthwhile investment of one’s time and energy (and more money). Long-hood Porsches of most any variant have seen a serious uptick in value amongst collectors so a potential restoration such as this one is certainly worth a look.

Car was found in a barn after sitting for 17 years and had been 80’s blacked out, painted red several times and fiberglass front and rear bumpers added (front is still fiberglass). The heads had been removed from the engine and disassembled. I had the heads professionally reworked, valves and guides redone as needed and the motor reassembled to get it running. The carbs were cleaned and new gaskets installed. The engine and transmission were reinstalled, rebuilt the brake calipers, cleaned the gas tank, rebuilt clutch, installed new batteries, replaced brake and fuel lines, sourced and installed used heat exchangers, muffler, rear bumpers, license plate valence, interior and exterior mirrors etc. The car now runs drives and stops. The engine runs rough and would benefit from attention to the original Zenith carburetors and Marelli distributor. The cases were not split, just got the car running to evaluate the next step. Overall the car is very solid and a good candidate for restoration.

Condition is good for age of car, pictures show areas that need attention before painting. All gauges, lights work with the exception of speedo. Electric sunroof works.

The seller of this car sounds like he has a decent handle on the work done thus far and certainly that is a plus. This car definitely needs a bit of work both inside and out, but the body appears in reasonable condition and it has a working engine (albeit one that still needs attention). Bidding at the moment is low at $2,247, but that is with the reserve still on. It’s always difficult to gauge a seller’s reserve on cars like these, but for anyone interested in reaping the rewards of a project Porsche an inquiry with the seller wouldn’t hurt. Even if this car is never returned to collector condition, putting it back into driving shape, or even converting it to a track car, should provide for time well spent and a fun car to take out for some weekend backroads.

Wednesday Wheels: Underwater Basketweaving 101

Okay, okay, you’re right – last week we featured BBS wheels too. But let’s just say I have a thing for BBS wheels and I’m in the driver’s seat on this one, so I get to control the radio, okay? Seriously though, BBS wheels are some of our favorites at GCFSB when they’re specified as either OEM wheels, OEM upgrades or aftermarket options. Today we have a few different options for you and like last week, I tried to get one of each marque. Unlike last week, we’re going to focus on specifically the “basket weave” design that BBS popularized. Let’s start with one of the more under appreciated BBS wheels, the RA found on 1987-1992 Volkswagen Jetta GLis:

Year: 1987-1992
Model: RA 375

The wheels are hard to find in this condition, but don´t forget the rims are used, look the pics.

Payment with PAYPAL only.

The refinish on these wheels sure looks great – I actually had a set of RAs that looked just like this, gold with a polished lip. They could be specified from BBS like that in the 1980s; these, however, have been made to look like that from the original all-silver (or super rare Helios Blue) that came on the stock GLis. I think they look great; gold was one of the most popular colors in the 1980s and these would dress up just about any 2002, 320i, E30, A1, A2, A3 or early Audi. The RAs and RMs are notoriously soft, so watch for potholes if you’re running skinny rubber. Have a mid-80s Mercedes or into the “stance” scene? How about the super popular 16×8 Mercedes-Benz spec BBS RSs:

The BBS RS crowd has taken on a life of it’s own, with clean and refinished examples sometimes demanding much more money than the cars they’re put on. I’ve seen ask prices exceed $3,000 for a set of 16″ BBS RSs, but if you look hard you can find pretty clean sets for under $1,000 without tires. This particular set has the benefit of coming with tires, so it’s a bolt on for you Benz folks, and I think they’d look great on a white SEC. Or, you could do what the “stance” crowd does and stick 3″ lips and 175-0-16s on them for that “this car isn’t capable of moving” look. Rather have something a little more modern on your Audi, late VW or Mercedes? How about these factory sport option Audi BBS RCs?:

Full set of 5 OEM Audi 17″ Forked BBS alloy wheels. These wheels were recently removed from my Audi A6 and are a little dirty. Wheels are in good condition and have some moderate rash. See pictures for overall condition. Wheels include center caps, no center cap for spare wheel.

The BBS RC isn’t most classic basket weave, it’s a neat modern interpretation of the original. This is both a classy and sporty wheel, and one of the lightest 17″ options out of the box if you’re into performance. This set comes with a bonus wheel, but note that it seems to be hard to find these without some curb rash because the spokes are more exposed. The make a nice addition to any B5 or B5.5 Passat, Audi A4 or A6, or some Mercedes-Benz models. Rather have something a little more classically styled? How about some BMW BBS RC “Style 5″s:

The Style 5s are favorites of the BMW crowd to mount to anything buy the 528i they originally came on. Like the earlier RS, they offer great looks, reasonably light weight and the ability to personalize your car with some color. Many often mislabel these wheels as RSs, but in fact they are RCs though they look nothing like any of the other BBS RC models. Often pricing on non refinished sets is below $1,000, but this set has undergone a serious overhaul. If you’re not into redoing the wheels yourself, this might be a good option, as they’re fairly stock looking in comparison to how some redo them. Have a Porsche and looking for something? Well, it just so happens I found you something special:

Few people will ever get the chance to pick up one of these wheels, or a similar but smaller F1 wheel. If you do, it’s worth a laugh. Magnesium wheels seem to defy physics with their light weight – it just shouldn’t be that big and not weigh anything! If you want to roll with the big boys, this is how to do it. You’re not likely to have a 935, 936, 956 or 962, but if you did, these would be perfect for you. Like all magnesium wheels, you have to be careful refinishing them as they have a tendency to crack if mistreated, so best to have them X-rayed before hitting the track. If you like basket weaves, BBS started it off with just this type of racing wheel.

1989 Porsche 911 Speedster

In the world of affordable 911s, the Speedster is not one of them, nor has it ever been. Known as option M503, the Speedster appeared for the 1989 model year only, with only 2,104 produced. Development on the model began in 1983 at the direction of Dr. Helmuth Bott, the research and development head at Porsche. The introduction of the 911 Cabriolet that year provided an optimal basis for a stripped down, low cowl version in the spirit of the 356 Speedster. It would also serve as a bookend to close the 3.2 Carrera chapter before the dawn of the 1990s brought four-wheel drive, twin-turbocharged engines and later, the demise of the air-cooled engine. This Speedster for sale in North Carolina is a well optioned example finished in Grand Prix White over red leather.

From the moment the 1989 911 Speedster was brought to market, it was truly beloved. After a 30-year wait, Porsche brought back the “Speedster” with this stylish, high-performance successor to the 356. With a very limited number of cars (824) sent to the United States, the beautiful and powerful Speedster was an instant collector’s car. Road Scholars is delighted to offer this impressive, heavily-optioned example featuring low mileage, original paint, gorgeous original red leather interior, and a well-documented provenance.

1989 911 Speedster
VIN: WPOEB0913KS173742
Exterior Color: Grand Prix White
Interior: Full leather in color to sample “Red”
25,384 Miles (Original paint and interior)
Four owners from new and documentation on the mileage.
Note: Original exhaust comes with the Speedster (After market exhaust currently on it).
Includes all the original books (tools) and even PCNA letter to new Speedster owners dated 1989.

Options from the factory include:
1. Leather color to sample
2. Rim cap with Porsche crest
3. Three spoke steering wheel with horn button and enamel crest
4. Leather shift cover
5. Leather shift knob
6. Steering wheel with raised hub
7. Limited slip differential
8. Shorter gear shift lever
9. Heavy-duty windshield cleaning

18. Radio with CD player
19. Luggage compartment “Black Velour”
20. Leather Piping to sample
21. Seat stitching in black
22. Leather welting color to sample

A fully documented, low mileage 911 Speedster such as this won’t come cheap, but closing in on $150,000 is a bit steep. Most 911 Speedsters you come across will be in good condition, as collectors and enthusiasts alike knew from the get go that these cars were destined to become classics. It is still possible to find a choice example of a Speedster for between $90,000 and $125,000. One wonders if the days of the under $30,000 3.2 Carrera are numbered. If so, will the Speedster variant soon move deeper into six figure territory?

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera

For my 2nd 993 of the week I’ve chosen this 1996 Carrera, which stood out to me for one very obvious reason: it’s Speed Yellow. This might be the only standard Carrera I have ever seen in Speed Yellow. I’ve come across a few other variants in this color (Turbos, the GT2, Cabriolets), but not a bog-standard 993. It’s a flashy color so it shouldn’t be surprising that it might not be hugely popular amongst buyers choosing the Carrera. Regardless, I love a Yellow on Black car (cue Wiz Khalifa) and with the base Carrera toning down the flash just a bit, this makes for a fantastic combination.

The rest of this car comes across just as well as the color. The mileage is very reasonable, the interior and exterior appear in very good condition, and the seller claims a fully documented service history. The asking price certainly isn’t low, but for a well maintained 993 in a rare color, it isn’t especially high either. For someone who might be a fan of this color, but would prefer something either a little less flashy or a bit less expensive than what a 993 Turbo might set you back, this car should present an excellent opportunity.

1997 Porsche 993 C2S

Though lately I’ve been writing up various 911 variants from the ’70s and ’80s, my mind keeps turning to the 993 and I have been telling myself to feature one or two of them here at GCFSB. So I’ll begin with this one: an stunningly beautiful 1997 993 C2S painted Guards Red with Black leather interior, located in California. Offered with either all-wheel drive as the Carrera 4S or rear-wheel drive as the Carrera S, the S version of the 993 had a lower suspension and featured the wider rear fenders of the 993 Turbo while remaining naturally aspirated. It also retained the standard moveable rear spoiler rather than taking on the Turbo’s whale tale. While some prefer the spoiler, I’ve always preferred the whale tale. Either way, with its wider body, the Carrera S had a much more aggressive look compared with its slimmer Carrera siblings and for many enthusiasts presents a much more desirable overall look.

I think this car speaks for itself. It’s eye-catching and appears to have been very well cared for. I actually prefer the multi-spoke wheels it’s currently wearing over the standard 5-spoke wheels so really I don’t think I’d change anything. 993 values seem destined to continue their upward trajectory and an excellent C2S in Guards Red such as this one should have no trouble following that trend.

1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition

I’ve written about a few 911SCs here at GCFSB recently that were typically very well maintained, original, and very pretty. The SC was the first 911 I had any experience with so those models tend to be the examples that immediately draw my attention. This time I’ll go with one that’s a little bit more unique though not quite in perfect condition. Here we have a 1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition located in Toronto. There were 408 Weissach Edition cars produced for the US market in 1980 as a testament to Porsche’s Motorsport team housed in Weissach, Germany. These cars featured either a Metallic Black or Platinum Metallic (like the one featured here) exterior to go along with a Doric Grey leather interior fitted with Burgundy carpeting. Other touches included a front chin spoiler, whale tail, and Platium-painted Fuchs. As of its last update, the Weissach registry shows 61 surviving cars.

You are bidding on a 1980 Porsche 911 SC Weissach Edition. For those of you who are not familiar, the 1980 Weissach Edition was a limited run of 406 cars built to honor the Porsche Research and Development center located in Weissach Germany. This car was only sold the US and they came in just 2 exclusive exterior colors, Platinum Metallic or Black Metallic, 203 of each colour. They both featured indentical inteiors of Doric Gray Full leather, rust carpets and piping and sport seats. On the exterior they featured a 930 style rear spoiler, front chin spoiler, 15×6 and 15×7 rear forged Fuchs alloys painted in platinum metallic. Most came with a sunroof. This car is one of three known sunroof delete cars in this limited edition. According to the 911 Weissach Registry, only 70 or so of these cars are known to survive.

Very good condition for a 33 year old car. Original paint and interior. Drives really well. Serviced and maintained by Hunter Motorsports, a specialist in air cooled Porsches. Last serviced in May 2013. Receipts for all work performed over the past two years, including new brakes, new igition rotor and cables, new oil transfer tubes and sump gaskets. Odometer stuck on 98785 miles shortly after I purchased the vehicle two years ago. Have only put about 2500 miles in the car since. I have purchased the gear wheel to repair the odometer, but not yet installed it. WIll leave that to the new owner. No rust or leaks. All original “survivor” car. Presently has AC compressor removed (they never really work and it’s heavy) and has an after market radio/CD player, but I have the original parts and Blaupunkt radio casstte that will accompany the car. New Falken tires on the original lightweight Fuchs. If I were keeping the car I would recover the front seats and the dash top. A set of after market wheels (Enkei, BBS copies), painted to match and also with Bridgestone new tires are also included in the sale, as is a Porsche certificate of authenticity, the original owners manual and service book, air pump and toolkit. Also have a new OEM front hood to bumper seal or “smile”, that I have yet to fit that will be included with the car.

Pick up and shipping is purchasers responsibility, however I will assist as much as I can. Originally a US car (Palm Springs, CA and then Fort Worth, TX), so should be no issue re-importing to the US. Car is also listed locally and so I reserve the right to end the auction early.

While I love black cars, I actually prefer the platinum exterior of these cars rather than the black, in part because it matches so well with that beautiful interior. The interior’s burgundy accents complement the grey leather very well and provide a fairly unique look to counter the more traditional single-color interiors of most cars. And I think it looks fantastic. Because the modifications were entirely aesthetic, a Weissach Edition, though rare, doesn’t tend to add much value to these cars. A really good example that is low mileage and in excellent mechanical condition will fetch a little bit of a premium over a standard 911SC, but a more well-used example such as the one we have here will only see a premium if a particular buyer is really struck by the unique color palette. I don’t intend to suggest that this car has been ragged, on the contrary it looks to be in fine shape and the mileage is reasonable for a car more than 30 years old, but I think the Buy It Now is a bit high as I’d expect this car to sell a bit closer to $20,000. Regardless, this is still a good looking car and with less than a quarter of the original allotment of Weissach Editions surviving, it’s a car that may get a bit more rare with each passing year.

1984 Porsche 930

The Porsche 930 is no stranger to these pages. Many of us hold in high regard the various 911 iterations produced from 1978-1989, from the debut of the SC until the final 3.2 Carrera rolled off the assembly line. Add in a turbocharged 3.3 liter engine and wider rear fenders and the 930 married a classically aggressive aesthetic with more than adequate power. These cars rewarded attentive driving and that’s why we love them. For a few years in the mid-80s, Porsche withheld the 930 from the US market over concerns about meeting stricter US emissions requirements. The car was still sold in Europe, however, which allowed cars such as the one featured here to make their way over to US shores. This 1984 Porsche 930 is located in New Jersey and comes in the always excellent red on black color combination.

No reserve! The seller is clearly very excited about this car and it’s hard to blame him. The contrast of the black Fuchs wheels with the red paint is always a favorite and in general this car presents very well given that it’s seen almost 80,000 miles. A well documented 930 in original condition that has been well cared for doesn’t come on offer too frequently without reserve. Right now bidding has this one up to $38,988 and I’ll have an eye on where this car ends up. As it stands, this is a beautiful example of a fantastic ’80s sports car.

1977 Porsche 911 ’73 RS Replica

The 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS is an icon of the motoring world, and for good reason. The RS combined a lighter weight and a more powerful engine with improved suspension and braking to produce a car suitable for racing and began the 911’s stellar career in the annals of road racing history. Add to this performance the classic long hood 911 design and you have a winner in nearly every respect. Naturally, buying a Carrera RS now is a very expensive proposition and the remaining models are found mostly in the hands of collectors who have little interest in putting additional miles on the car. Enter the replica: you get the looks and the performance, but with a lower cost of entry and less concerns over maintaining collectability. Which brings us to the car featured here: a 1977 Porsche 911 transformed into the appearance of a 1973 911 Carrera RS with a built 3.0 liter engine reminiscent of the 3.0 liter RSR of that period.

PORSCHE 73RS REPLICA

The original chassis is a 1977 Porsche 911S VIN# 9117201571, in excellent condition, devoid of any rust, damage, dents. The car has never been hit or damaged in any way:

This is a very aggressively tuned replica; it is well equipped for the track and, should you be so inclined, it is streetable as the car is titled and registered in the State of Florida. There are no track miles on the car/engine. The car has neither heat nor AC in its present form. The Paint is good. And has a couple of imperfections.

There has been approximately $70000 invested in the car as it sits. Reproducing the engine in the car will set you back $30,000.

Short History:

The Car is a 2 owner of the donor car having purchased from the original owner who had been storing the car for about 5 years. The car was perfect with a bad original color choice and a worn out engine. It had 75,000 miles on it, always been garaged, never used in the snow. .

The stock engine was removed. It was replaced with a special build performance motor. Steel 8” flares were added, steel front fenders have been retained. A fiberglass hood, front and rear bumpers and spoiler replaced the original factory pieces. The car has been stored for the last 10 years, but serviced annually and occasionally driven to keep it in tune. You can drive it home. This Car is Wicked Fast.

I really wish this car had a set of Fuchs instead of the Fikse wheels it’s wearing now, but otherwise it appears to be very well sorted. No one will confuse it with an original RS, but I don’t think that’s this car’s intention. It’s an homage to a great design with an engine that takes it to another level. With 235 hp at the wheels and a 2300 lb weight, this car should be pretty quick and corner beautifully. The purple exterior paint provides it with a rare color that, frankly, I think looks fantastic on this design. Determining the value of a car such as this one is really a matter of finding a buyer for whom this car presses all the right buttons. While the purchase price will be far lower than that of an original ’73 Carrera RS, I doubt this would be a cheap car to run if the owner plans to drive it frequently. But, a Carrera RS with an RSR engine was never intended to be the stuff of backyard DIYers. So as Ferris Bueller famously quipped, “If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.”

V8 Week Preview: 1994 Porsche 928 GTS

Porsche’s foray into the GT car market was supposed to be the move that insured the long term success and viability of the marque. Surely their quirky rear-engined sports car had reached its potential and buyers would prefer the combination of performance and comfort that only a well designed front-engined GT could provide, right? Such was the basic process behind the introduction of the 928. First introduced in 1977, the 928 had a 4.5 liter V8 delivering 219 hp to the rear wheels. By the end of its life-cycle in 1995, engine output had increased to 345 hp from a 5.4 liter V8, but much of the rest of the car, especially its appearance, remained the same. In the end, Porsche had underestimated the long-term viability and potential success of the 911 and it’s now been nearly two decades since the last of these GT cars rolled off the line.

The car we have here today comes from near the very end of the model’s production run: a 1994 Porsche 928 GTS with manual transmission located in Indianapolis.

Excessively documented since new with every single service record accounted for. A thorough timing belt/water pump/tensioner/pulley/external belt service was performed at 41,000 miles. A retensioning has been completed as well. Nearly brand new Bridgestone Potenza RE050 Runflats complete the package. All books, tools, compressor, spare, cargo net, cargo cover, two types of Porsche wheel locks with keys and caps, brand new Porsche floor mats still in their plastic wrap and all other original equipment items are accounted for.

There’s a ton to like about this car. It appears spotless both inside and out, it has the highly desirable 5 speed manual, the mileage is reasonable, and it comes with a complete service history. It’s fitting that Porsche designated this color as Polar Silver because matched with the blue leather interior there’s definitely a icy quality to the overall appearance of this car. It’s a pretty great combination and a nice departure from the more standard blacks and browns, but without being overly flashy. It’s a GT car, understated excellence is what we want. Bidding has been aggressive so far with nearly 40 bids received and a price currently at $34,100 with the reserve still on. I expect that will come up a little bit, but it’ll be interesting to see if it can meet the reserve. Either way, this looks like an excellent example of the car that Porsche assumed would be its savior.

1971 Porsche 914-4 Ginther replica

No, you’re not on the wrong day; it’s Sunday, and I’m reviewing a race car, something I’d usually leave until Motorsport Monday. But with “V8 Week” upcoming and time running out on this car’s auction, it was too good to not write up – plus, we have something special for you tomorrow. While in the past I’ve focused on some big dollar 911s, today we’re looking at a much more affordable to buy and run 914. For a long time unloved by most of the Porsche crowd, in race trim the 914 is a solid performer and hearkens back to a time when you had to drive the car yourself rather than relying on computers to do the heavy lifting. Better yet, without relying on the power of it’s bigger brethren to drag it out of corners, the 914 is a fantastic platform for you to better yourself as a driver. Like the Martini Racing RSR replica I wrote up last week, today’s 914 is a recreation of a more famous race car, this time the Richie Ginther 914-4 race cars built for West Coast Porsche and Audi:

This car is the one to buy, with a full restoration already done. The correct race pieces have been fit, and this car will certainly hang with the competition. I think it looks awesome in yellow with the period graphics that we saw on everything from the 914 through the 917-30. But what really sets this car apart for most race wannabes is the full package; race car, enclosed trailer, and pit bike are all included in the purchase price. As a package then, all you need to show up with is a tow vehicle capable of taking your personal race team with you. I think this car looks fantastic, from the Panasports to the windscreen free profile. As complete packages go, this seems like a pretty reasonable deal. Yes, the car and trailer do show some wear, but you’d be hard pressed to recreate this package for less than the asking price, and you’d save yourself a lot of headaches and time not trying to reinvent the wheel.
