Porsche didn’t really have a lot going on in the early 1990s. For the 1990 model year, they had the 911, the aging 928, and the 944. I suppose you could count the 959 as well, but production “officially” ended in 1988 with a handful per year being made up until 1993. That means your options were quite limited if you wanted a Porsche but thankfully there was the 944 S2 Cabriolet if you coveted a convertible but didn’t have 911 money. Truth be told, I think the 944 S2 looks great considering what it is and the improvements that were made over the years along with an adequate inline-four that came in with slightly over 200 horsepower. After these became “old” cars, prices have stayed low enough that anyone on a small budget could swing one as long as they had a Porsche specialist in the general area that didn’t hate working on them.
Today we have a 1990 up for sale in Texas that seems to be up to date in service but isn’t exactly matching the asking price when it comes to the cosmetics of the car.
This is the end of the road for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class coupe. Following the 2020 model year, Mercedes made a huge decision on pulling the plug for the S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet model, which have been around in one way or another since the W142 chassis that debuted in 1937. The reason given was to cut down the massive line-up of cars to make it a little easier on dealers as well as shift focus to electric offerings. Crazy how we can go from twin-turbocharged V12s making 620 horsepower to all-electric cars basically overnight. Mercedes is telling its customers to go buy the new R232 SL if they want a grand tourer coupe, but that is clearly not the same as the king of the hill S-Class. What will all that mean? I think the current C217 and A217 are going to be very collectible.
Back again with a car that I’m unsure how even rolled off the assembly line solely based on the odd color combination. This 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet is finished in the smooth Orient Red Metallic over .. Metropol Blue leather? Yes, this is a dark red over dark blue car and I suppose it isn’t too crazy, but why just not go with black? Something different I suppose. The good news is that it isn’t all that expensive.
