1983 Porsche 911SC

I have written previously about how the 911SC represents excellent value in the 911 market. For buyers interested in a classically-styled 911, these cars provide a good mix of performance and styling but without the prices that a long-hood 911 will command. However, the market for these cars appears to be at the onset of a rise and while the value is still there, I do wonder for how much longer that will be true. Nonetheless, I remain partial to the SC and even today they are a head turner whenever I see one on the streets. The car featured here is a very pretty 1983 Guards Red Porsche 911SC with Black leather interior located in New Jersey. In 1983 the SC featured a 3.0 liter flat-six producing 180 hp that was mated to the 5-speed 915 transmission.

The difficult decision when looking at a 1983 model certainly must be whether it’s worthwhile to look for a 3.2 Carrera instead. You get a little more power with the same classic 911 styling and it’ll only set you back a few grand more. It’s difficult to go wrong with a well-sorted example of either version. The car here presents well both inside and out and the seller claims to have “many” service records. Bidding has been strong so far and stands at $17,011 with the reserve still on. That should come up a little as Guards Red almost always seems to attract more action. Assuming this doesn’t go too much above $20,000 then I think we’d be looking at a pretty good value.

1991 Porsche 911 Turbo

For a good long while, the 964 series Porsche 911 went a bit unnoticed by collectors, sandwiched between the iconic 3.2 Carrera and the last of the air-cooled 911s, the 993. Whether it’s nostalgia for the good old days or the fact that these are a bit of a bridge between classic and modern 911s, the 964 is finally getting its due and prices have started to uptick. One of the most sought after 964s, like any 911 generation, is the Turbo. This unmolested 1992 Turbo comes with a full service history and authenticity certificate by Porsche.

While the 3.2 Carrera is my favorite of all 911s, the 964 has always been attractive to me because it blends modern and classic elements seamlessly, from the integrated bumpers to the Cup wheels of the Turbo model. Given that these are the last rear-wheel drive Turbo 911s, they are prized to an extent. The price of this example is about right considering it’s tidy condition and low miles. The later 3.8 Turbos are more powerful and rare, but they carry heftier pricetags which drive them towards 993 territory. Considering how pricey classic Porsches are becoming, the 964 Turbo could almost be viewed as a bargain.

1967 Porsche 911

I’ve come across quite a few early 911s recently in a wide variety of current build and condition. From fully prepped track cars to rusted out shells in need of serious restoration work to well kept drivers it seems just about every variety has popped up for sale. The model featured here falls into the third category and takes us back to nearly the beginning: a Tangerine 1967 Porsche 911 located in California. With 130 hp coming from the 2.0 liter flat-six engine these are not powerful cars by any modern standard, but for their day, given their reasonable curb weight, they still provide enough acceleration to move along at a brisk pace without much trouble.

I have owned this 911 for about 5 years. I purchased it from a man whose dad had left this car to him when he passed away. I believe the Dad was the original owner, so technically I am only the 2nd owner of this car.

This car runs like a new car, and it will cruise at 80mph for hours. If you are looking at this Ad then I don’t have to give you a lesson on Porsche or the 911. I am sure you know that the 911 when it came to the US, it was more expensive than the Corvette and the Jaguar E-type.

This is an original California BLACK PLATE Car, and it has never left California. This is a RUST FREE car. (check out the pics of the undercarriage and the front trunk area).

The car was in running condition when I bought it, even the paint on the car was in very good condition which could have been polished out. If it wasn’t for a poor quality of the front end repaint, I would have left the Paint original. (There is no sign of any repairs to the body in the front or anywhere on the car). One thing let to another, and about 3 years ago, I decided to restore the car.

We decided to go ahead a rebuild everything. The Engine was completely rebuilt with new bearings, gaskets, timing chains, Head studs, Cam sprockets etc. The Oil pump, Cam shafts, Heads, and Cylinders were rebuilt.

The Transmission was rebuilt with new 1st gear assembly, 1st and 2nd gear sliders, 3rd and 4th gear sliders, all 5 new Synchros, 1st gear dog teeth, 4th and 5th gear dog teeth, and 1st gear snap ring. The Flywheel was resurfaced, and the clutch was replaced with OEM SACHS clutch kit.

The Ignition system has been converted to Electronic ignition. No more points! The Alternator and the Starter were rebuilt.

The Fuel system was cleaned out, with new Fuel sending unit, Fuel pump, and rebuilt Weber Carburetors.

The brake calipers were rebuilt, and the pads and rotors and master cylinder is replaced. The shifter assembly and linkage were replaced.

The Exhaust Heater boxes were replaced with DANSK heater boxes. So there is heat inside the car. This car is ready for those long trips down the coast or cross country.

The Exterior was de-trimmed and repainted with Original style PPG Single Stage Tangerine Orange Paint. All the Chrome was re-chromed. and the weather seals were replaced.

The interior was re upholstered in original style and quality Leather + Vinyl. The carpets were replaced, and the headliner was replaced.

Everything on this car works, all the lights work, all the gauges work, The Wipers work, the horns work, the original radio works, the heater works.

This is a great example of an excellent condition driver quality 911. You can enter car shows, and it can win trophy’s, but it is NOT A Concours quality car. It would not be too much work to make it a concours quality car, but I have always believed that “Cars are meant to be driven” especially an early 911 like this one.

I have all the receipts of the work done to it in the last 3 years. I also have a written warranty from Motor Meisters for the engine rebuild for 1 year. I also have the “Porsche certificate of authenticity”

I have a few vintage cars, and I am so impressed with this 911, because it drives like a modern car but it is almost 50 years old.

This is a great opportunity to own a piece of Automotive History. The values on these cars are only going to go up.

509

The seller here has represented the state of this car quite well. It isn’t entirely original as it appears both the engine and transmission have been sourced from other models and while it looks in excellent shape it is not a concours car. This is, as he states, a period-correct driver and there will always be a place for that sort of car. Already having had the engine rebuilt and a decent bit of restoration work, there’s a good chance many of the headaches of a 46-year-old car will be mostly alleviated. The difficult assessment for a car such as this will always be the price. Any buyer is paying for a bit of history and some nostalgia, but the market for an early 911 has shot up to such a degree that even a non-original driver like this will cost significantly more than later examples that offer much more capable performance. At the moment, the asking price is at the high end of what it should sell for were everything original. So for this particular car it’s definitely a bit too high. Nonetheless, there aren’t a ton of period-correct driver-ready examples around so perhaps with some negotiation this car could be had for the right price. All that would then be left, would be to go for a drive.

1969 Porsche 911/912 Vintage Race Car

I’m not going to mince words here: I think this car is fantastic. Not in that high-dollar super-car performance sense of the word, but for the simplicity and execution of the build along with its overall look. What we have here is a 1969 911 body fitted with a race prepped 1.6 liter flat-4 from the 912 that has been mounted as far forward as the body would allow. The 912 was reputed to be a more capable handling machine relative to its more heralded 911 siblings in part because of the better chassis balance provided by the smaller and lighter 4-cylinder engines they utilized. Added to that capable handling is a sub-1800 lb weight propelled by an engine tuned to produce 130 hp. This car is sure to provide lively performance and immense driving fun. I’ll leave our readers to peruse the rest of the ad copy for a fuller sense of all the work done on this car. It appears very well executed.

This is one of those rare times when I think the seller may have undervalued the market for his own car. Or perhaps he’s just very realistic and I’ve grown too accustom to seeing Porsches offered at above market value. Bidding right now is at $24,100 and while the reserve has not been met, with a Buy It Now of $28,750 I feel pretty confident that we’ll see a sale here. This is a fully sorted and documented race car that is ready to drive and whose build would come at three to four times the price being asked here. It goes without saying that any serious buyer should know exactly what he or she is getting into with this sort of car, but I can’t help but think that this is a bargain.

Barn Find: 1971 Porsche 911T

We’ve shown a couple of cars like this one recently: Porsches from the ’70s that are in need of a lot of love so that they can be enjoyed again. The Heap of the Week I featured a couple of weeks ago would have been more suited for a full restoration seeking collector status. That car is remarkably similar to the car featured here and this one should probably be approached with a similar ideal. Here we have a Red 1971 Porsche 911T located in Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC.

Year: 1971
Model: 911T

You are bidding on a 1971 911T 5-speed coupe w/o sunroof. It was manufactured 10/70. This is a “behind-the-barn” find that shows the results of being left out in the elements for too long. The car is all original and intact with 71,395 miles with matching numbers. Original color was Pastel Blue #2020 but now has a poor repaint to red. This car will require extensive restoration. The lower portions of the front pans have extensive rust. Full replacement of the front pans, right and left battery boxes, gas tank (?) and forward portion of the floor pans is required. The structure and pans to the rear of the mid-point, torsion tubes, shock mounts, etc. are clean and rust-free. Rockers show some minor rust, but seem to be intact. Rocker trim is S type. Door jambs, hinge mountings and surrounds are intact and still serve up that Porsche “ping” when closed. Headlight bowls are intact and are not rusted. All glass is original and present with some slight delamination showing in the front windshield. Some rust is present in the body panels as shown in the photos; the underside trailing edge of the rear deck lid is the worst. Original front seats will require recovering; rear seats are in good condition. Radio is not original. Door panels and hardware is all present. Top of the dash and rear deck panel will require replacement due to sun damage. Headliner is intact with original visors. All trim is present.

This is a roller (not a driver) with working steering, clutch, trans and emergency brake (main brakes are not operational). Forward mounts for front torsion bars are weak so some care in moving the car is required. Car can be easily loaded onto a flat bed or trailer. Engine does not run but turns over easily and is fully intact. Engine is stock 2.7, no AC and has original Weber carb setup and original air filter box. Wheels are original Fuchs (5). Body serial # is 911 112 0880 and engine # is 6115054.

The photos and the details outlined above present as best I can the present conditions of this car. Further photos and info can be provided on request and the car is available for inspection. There is a clean and current title for this car issued by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Willing to sell to buyers in Canada, Europe, Germany, UK and USA on the condition that payment is received in full and all shipping arrangements are made by the buyer prior to release of the car.

509

This car isn’t in as good a condition relative to the car I posted for the Heap of the Week. There’s quite a bit of rust on the body, the dash is shot, and this is only a roller, rather than a driver. But for a barn find those “features” aren’t necessarily unexpected. There also appears to be some confusion over the engine. The seller states that the car has a stock 2.7 liter engine, which of course is not the standard 2.2 of a 1971 911T. I would presume this is merely a typo, but it’s certainly worth investigating just to be sure. This car is offered on auction for No Reserve and ideally it could be had at a discount relative to the $21,000 price of the Heap. We shall see. These cars command very good prices when restored to excellent condition so even a car in this shape won’t come cheaply. With bidding currently at $4,500 this is surely something to keep one’s eye on, and while we’re likely to see that rise quickly, for someone interested in a project this could make for an interesting investment.

Revisit: 1997 Porsche 911 Andial Twin-Plug Twin-Turbo

The 1997 Porsche 911 ANDIAL Twin-Plug Twin-Turbo we featured back in September on Rennlist has cropped up on eBay. As I write this I’m not sure what the reserve is, but bidding is at $119,000$ and it’s not met yet – strong bidding for a 993 Turbo, but in line with the rarity and specialness of this car. We’ll see if it gets close to the original $170,000 asking price!

The below post originally appeared on our site September 10, 2013:

I find it extraordinarily sad that this year saw the nearly unnoticed passing of one of the great Porsche tuning firms, ANDIAL. If you’re newer to the scene, ANDIAL probably doesn’t mean much to you, but if you grew up in the 1980s or were a fan of motorsports then they were one of the top tuning firms pushing out some of the fastest Porsches in the world – they were really the U.S. equivalent of Ruf. They backed that performance up with race-winning efforts – ANDIAL became the defacto 962 race engine supplier in the United States, and racked up an impressive string of both prototype and GT racing wins and championships. Though they were very well respected, ANDIAL downsized as the trio of owners aged and then passed away, culminating in the retirement this past February of the last remaining founder, Dieter Inzenhofer, Porsche Motorsports North America bought the name, but with undisclosed plans to use it, we’ll just have to wait and see. Coming across an ANDIAL tuned car is something of a rare treat, and for the 993 they cooked up a twin-plug, twin turbo 3.8 motor that was just a monster. Today’s example is one of the best prepared in the world:

Car History
Here is the information I have been able to glean about the car.
This highly optioned car was purchased in the Chicago area by car collector John Pizer. He immediately had it flat-bedded to the Andial facility with only delivery miles on the car.
The full Andial 3.8 liter twin plug conversion was performed at an estimated cost of 55-60 thousand dollars.Andial Twin Plug
A few years later the car was purchased by collector Amir Fahti in Calabasas with around 4000 miles on the clock.
In 2007 I purchased the car from Mr. Fahti with 27,181 miles on the clock. Unfortunately Mr. Fahti had lost the build sheet on the car. Andial confirms that this is one of the 19 certified 3.8 liter twin plug conversions, of which only 17 remain. Andial Registry

Over the next few years I had Michael Schatz MKS Performancein Camarillo fettle the car into tip top condition, replacing the front differential, viscous coupler, clutch accumulator, steering rack and installing a set of GT2 uprights and tie rods, new hood shocks, breeze constant torque clamps on the intercooler hoses and forge diverter valves. I removed the k40 radar detector and installed functional front brake cooling ducts and a larger Cargraphics oil cooler. I installed yellow rear seat belts to match the front seat belts. Finally, a complete corner balance and alignment and rake was performed.

In 2011 elected to make this car into my vision of the ultimate street version of a GT2.
I contacted 1998 IMSA GT2 champion Jochen Rohr who generously supplied me with the rear wing and carbon fibre deck-lid plus the BBS wheels he had left over from that race team. I sourced a brand new OEM European narrow-body front bumper and some hand laid fender flares and commissioned Ed Palmer at Kundensport to perform the conversion.

The car is everything I could have hoped for. It looks fabulous in my eyes. It rides very smoothly. The GT2 uprights and tie rods have minimized bump steer and the ride is not harsh in any way but it still handles brilliantly. The paint is exceptional. It is the best rding 993 I have ever driven. I clay barred it using Final Detail as the lubricant over a weekend and it presents very well indeed. It is nearly impossible to put the car cover on by yourself because it keeps shooting off as the paint is so smooth. Obviously the car is brutally fast but also very tractable. The larger pistons on the RS rear calipers match the 14 inch front brakes very well. A minor service and detailing was performed last week.

With the passing of Arnold in 2011 and the purchase of Andial by Porsche Motorsports in 2012, I believe no more of these cars will be built and a stellar chapter in Porsche history has closed.

Nits to pick:

There are a few rock chips on the front.

The front tires can rub if the wheel is turned to full lock at parking lot speeds.

The Thielert dual program street/race gas ecu is a bit unsophisticated and no longer supported. They need two revolutions of the crank to start the car and can run a little rough just off of idle. It occaisionally becomes “confused” and can cough and spit for a bit. Then it remembers it’s manners and clears up. It is not foolproof. You need to make sure you have 100 octane race gas in the tank before switching to the race gas setting or damage could occur.

There is a more modern Andial aproved ecu available, but you lose the dual programming capabilities. Having the “psychopath switch” under your left hand is just too much damn fun! As a result I elected to keep the dual program ecu and live with the very minor flaws.

The price may seem outrageous, but it’s in line with some of the Ruf cars. Although this is a bit of a home-brew combination of several different car looks, I think it pulls it off exceptionally well. The GT2 flares look perfect, the wheels look perfect, I love the understated color…I have to say, the only thing I’m not really a fan of is the seatbelts. Some of the technology in the engine tuning has progressed and the owner notes that this earlier multi-level Theilert computer has its hiccups, but depending on what you wanted to do this could be solved either somewhat expensively in a standalone programmable ECU or very expensively by sending it to PMNA to let them sort it out.

I don’t think the ANDIAL name really carries the weight of the name Ruf outside of the Porsche crowd, so my guess is that someone who is really in the 993 know is going to be the one to scoop this gem up. The price is probably realistic given the rarity and the modifications, but it’s a pretty narrow market for this car. You could replicate the look easily enough if you have deep pockets, but that motor is really something special. It’s a shame that we won’t be seeing any more from ANDIAL, but I do hope then name doesn’t fade away completely into obscurity. Given the choice between this car and a Ruf, I would have to think long and hard before plunking down my hoard of cash.

1978 Porsche 911 Race Car

A fully prepped race car is always a fun find, especially when it’s a Porsche that won’t cost six-figures to purchase. This car won’t have six-figure performance either, but it should still provide ample amounts of fun driving and learning. Here we have a 1978 Porsche 911 painted in lovely Gulf Blue. It looks to be in great shape and, as I always love with these cars, appears to have been a build that favored weight reduction over going for higher power. A no-frills Porsche that you can get in and drive. There’s much to love there!

We could do with a bit more detail on the specific modifications to this car, but as it stands it looks like a well executed example that should be very quick given the decent power and low weight. The classic Gulf Blue paint is always a winner on a track car and the condition of the paint looks to be excellent. While that isn’t a necessity for a track car it isn’t a detriment either. A prepped car like this one provides the opportunity for any buyer to step right into a car built to handle track duty without having to deal with the many financial headaches and frustrations that come with embarking on such a project. The cost of that convenience is all relative as the purchase price always will be lower than the cost of doing the build yourself, but also never comes cheap. I previously featured this 1973 Porsche 911E track car that sold for just under $30,500 so the price here of $34,500 is in the ball-park for what a fully-prepped classic Porsche should sell.

Purple Haze: 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo

When I first saw this 965, my first thought was that I had seen it’s long lost brother before, and indeed, I had – late last year Paul wrote up a super-low mile Porsche 968 with the same color combination. The question for many (including me) was why anyone would have originally selected these shades post 1974, but as one person pointed out, if you want bland go buy a Camry. This 965 is anything BUT bland, with it’s purple on purple hue, flashy polished HRE wheels and (gulp) 739 rear wheel horsepower. Think you’d driven something faster? Unless it starts with “Boeing”, that’s not likely. Take a look then at this monster 911 Turbo:

Well, there you go. If you want a modded to the extreme 911 Turbo, it doesn’t get much better than this in the air cooled era. While most of the modifications are very desirable, I can’t help but feel that the very pricey HRE wheels look out of place on this car. Were it mine and I still wanted some polish on those wheels, I’d probably select something like the Speedline-inspired RHs linked below:

Like many of the modded cars we feature (especially of the Porsche variety), the modifications alone are worth at least the asking price in original dollars. This obviously won’t be a daily driver for anyone, but at least with some miles on the body and engine the new owner won’t be afraid to drive it, unlike that investment-grade 968 Paul wrote up. For $60,000, the price doesn’t seem as outrageous as the color combination and it appears well maintained. It also appears this is an expensive car to run, so the entry price will only be the beginning, but you’d be in rarefied air – both in power and color selection. Feeling bold?

2007 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

Time for something a little more modern. While I love a classic 911 there is little doubt that in terms of performance a newer model provides more value. With more than 300 hp coming from their water-cooled flat-6 a bone-stock base 996 or 997 will easily outperform many of the best classic 911s. A 996 is generally a better value, but with a 997 you get a more aesthetically pleasing design along with a bit more power. Upgrade to the 4S seen here and the 3.8 liter flat-6 provides 355 hp for the all-wheel drive system to distribute to the road. These cars are quick, refined, and handle very capably. A well-maintained example will have years of driving pleasure ahead of it, which brings us to the car featured here: a Guards Red 2007 Porsche 911 Targa 4S located in Salt Lake City.

I find Guards Red most striking on a SC or 3.2 Carrera due to it’s more apparent contrasts with the bumper design of those cars, but it remains an alluring color even on the smoothed curves of the 997. This car looks nearly flawless inside and out and the owner claims a complete service history on hand. For a newer car with reasonable mileage there is little more that we can ask. A Targa will sometimes sell for a bit lower than the Carrera and Cabriolet since the audience for the Targa is more restricted, but with an asking price of $53,500 this car is priced pretty reasonably. For a driver who enjoys the open-roofed appeal of the Targa or simply finds the Carrera too ubiquitous, this Targa 4S provides a nice departure from the norm and should provide for excellent fair-weather driving!

The Sport Classics are one of the best looking OEM wheels Porsche has put on their newer cars; as a throwback they’re a fantastic update of the original, but also look modern and aggressive, pulling the evergreen “911” into the current century. Like all Porsche wheels they’re pricey, but this set comes with centercaps and tires – something often missing from Porsche wheels for sale, as we’ll see. Still too rich or new for your blood? How about this set of OEM BBS-made 911 Carrera wheels?

Thank you.

These are a great looking, simple wheel that is well built by BBS. I really thought these freshened up the 911 design when they debuted and made it look modern but also lighter. With included (and expensive) tires and centercaps, as Porsche wheels go these are a deal. Still a bit too pricey for you, but you’d like something from the same generation? How about these Carrera 4S “Twists”?

Talk about a stellar deal; with centercaps included these 18″ wheels with light use are only $650. As Porsche wheels go, that’s basically giving them away. These would ideally suit a 996 or 997 widebody, with an aggressive stance and clean look. Were you looking for something a bit older?

While I love the originality of these wheels and this design on the 964s, I have to say I really liked the Speedline-made multi-piece Turbo 3.6 wheels a lot more. Despite this, if you’re in the restoration market for a 965, these might just be the wheels for you. In typical Porsche wheel fashion, there are no tires or centercaps and they’re very expensive. Are you like me and prefer the look of the Speedlines? Have an older 930? How about these Ruf Speedlines then?

The Ruf Speedlines are one of the best period-correct modifications you can do to a 911 or 930, or even a 944 Turbo. They’re not cheap, but boy are they good looking wheels. They’re absolutely one of my favorites and I like the inclusion of both tires and centercaps here, though I’d prefer “Ruf” caps to make it correct. Still not your cup of tea but in the right time period? How about some original Fuchs?
