Mint Green 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa – REVISIT

s-l1600-1

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.

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe – REVISIT

636115436521552936

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.

Irish Green 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 – REVISIT

s-l1600

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?

1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera – REVISIT

s-l1600

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.

1980 Porsche 911SC Coupe – REVISIT

s-l1600

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.

1973 Porsche 911T Coupe – REVISIT

s-l1600

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.

1980 Audi 5000 Diesel – REVISIT

When I saw this 5000, it looked familiar to me even though we rarely cover C2s. But when I read the ad, I was sure I’d seen it before. While we try to produce fresh material with every post, once in a while a truly special or unique alumnus of our pages resurfaces. In this case, it’s a quite rare Type 43 Audi 5000 Diesel. Originally, this car was written up at the end of 2013; now, nearly 3 years later, it’s back from a seller in Tennessee, have traveled only apparently 200 more miles and with a $1,000 price drop to $8,995. What’s perhaps even more spectacular is that they stole my words for the advertisement copy, only replacing “New England” as seen below with “Tennessee”. While it was good for a laugh and I’ll choose to chalk the plagiarism up to a backhanded compliment, this remains a very impressive and rarely seen specimen:

Feature Listing Alumnus: 2006 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Estate

3

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.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe – REVISIT

s-l1600

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.

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo S2 – REVISIT

s-l1600

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.
