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

509

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!

Wednesday Wheels – Super Stars from Porsche

If you thought last week’s BBS post was a bit of a basket case, today we’re going to look at another popular style of wheel – this time, 5 spoke wheels that are always popular on Porsches. I’ve picked some of the most popular styles that have adorned several different generations so hopefully there is something you like here. Let’s start out with a great set of “Sport Classic” Fuchs replicas:

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?

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.

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?

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.

Motorsport Monday: 2004 Porsche 911 GT3

509

Last week on Motorsport Monday I wrote up a 1995 BMW M3 that was ready to hit the track; for under $20,000, it sure was a track weapon on a budget. But if your budget is a little bit higher, the natural choice for the German car fan is to look towards Porsches, and Porsche’s out-of-the-box race car, the GT3. We’ve written up a few GT3s of various generations in the past few months, but the screaming deal in 911s right now are the first to hit U.S. shores, the 2004 models. Today’s model was a streetable GT3 that has been modeled after the more expensive, complicated and pricey to run Cup models, and like last week’s M3 looks ready to willing to hit the track in the proper Speed Yellow:

Like most of the cars we have featured in Motorsport Monday, add up the build sheet and you’ll quickly see that the price of this car is much less than just what it would cost to build. Even the three sets of Hoosiers alone would set you back the best part of $5,000 in tires shipped and mounted. Dawes and GMG both have great records for building these cars; get this to the track and it won’t be long before you’re flying. For less than a third of the price of a new Cup car, this car would offer 90% plus of the thrills without the overhead and operating expense. The 996 might not be the prettiest 911 ever made, but it’s probably the best bang for the buck in the esteemed 911 world right now.

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.

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 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.

Please ask any questions before bidding and do not bid unless you intend to buy. Car is being sold “as is where is”.

$1,000 deposit by PayPal or wire transfer within 24 hours of auction closing. Balance due within 3 days of auction closing or on pickup whichever comes first. Cash or cash equivalent only.

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.
