1989 Porsche 911 25th Anniversary Edition

Porsche has always enjoyed providing its customers with special edition models that celebrate some aspect of the marque’s heritage. Such is the case with this 1989 Porsche 911 25th Anniversary Edition (also called the Silver Anniversary Edition) in Silver Metallic. The 25th anniversary of the 911 fell just prior to Porsche’s extensive redesign of the model that would mark the end of the classic 911 body. What better time to release a limited edition anniversary model? These cars were mechanically similar to a standard 3.2 Carrera, featuring a 3.2 liter flat-six engine producing 215 hp mated to the G50 5-speed transmission. The 25th Anniversary Edition featured a host of leather interior upgrades as well as body-colored Fuchs wheels and front and rear spoilers. Though the upgrades are simply cosmetic the 25th Anniversary models have been valued slightly higher by most collectors and with time should continue to see rising values.

4WD Week: 2007 Audi S4

The Audi S4 is no stranger to GCFSB like some of the other Volkswagen rarities we’ve had this week, but as the original all-wheel drive sports sedan I think it certainly deserves a place here. There have been many variations of the S4, and all of them have their strengths and following. While I’m a big fan of the turbocharged inline-5 models that started it all there is still a side of me that just loves that V8 tune being pumped out of the back of the B6 and B7 models. Even within those two sub-models, there have been a few different types and this is one of them. Dubbed the “DTM” model, the last of the run S4 V8s packed the normal 340hp rev-happy 4.2, but added the sports differential and suspension upgrades from the RS4 and Quattro 25th Anniversary model as well as some trick (if in questionable taste?) carbon fiber bits. In my preferred shade of Sprint Blue, this car is ready to rock your commute:

While the car looks pretty stunning, there are a few things that confuse me about this listing. First, the seller states the photos were taken prior to detailing. Why? Why would you go through the listing then say it’ll be detailed later? Then there is the price – $29,995 puts this car squarely into RS4 territory. Granted, the RS4 you’d get for low-30s wouldn’t be the nicest in the world but it’s a much more special car than the regular S4. Then there’s the second problem – the other S4 models. If the Avant isn’t more desirable than the DTM model, then the 25th Anniversary model surely is. Were I looking for a limited run regular S4 then, I’d really rather have the wagon or the better-wheeled and more rare 25th model. Still, this is a great car to look at – I just wish the price was more in line with the market.
