1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GT

The 924; Porsche’s mostly unloved project. But while the auto enthusiast masses today sigh at the sight of one and usually quip “I’d rather buy a 944 instead” few of them realize the 944 project effectively was modeled around this car – the 924 Carrera GT. More than just a 924 with flares, this car took the standard 924 Turbo and kicked it up a notch, adding an intercooler and increased boost along with larger wheels, tires and brakes, improved suspension, along with 944 era-touches of the flush mounted windshield and much larger rear spoiler. But for fans of flares, the 924 Carrera GT was one of the first road going box-flared models, sporting wide arches to cover those great Fuchs wheels. Sporting a quite impressive for the time 210 hp out of the box, the Carrera GT motor was available in many levels of tune from the factory – up to nearly 300 hp in top-spec GTS form. Those who complain that the 924 was slow were never near one of these cars. The list of achievements for the Carrera GT platform was impressive; spanning from Le Mans to World Rally Championship events, the 924 was a well balanced and successful racer – in fact, it nearly completed the 24 hours of Le Mans on one set of tires – which, incidentally, were street legal.

Carrera GTs were never produced in great number, but their owners love them – ask Derek Bell, who owns one. Today they hold some of the highest of the front engined Porsche values and have mostly been snatched up by collectors; but today there is a low mile example available in Italy:

italian car, original plates, 26.300 km, service book, wonderful unmolested conditions. More pictures to come…

Anyone who declares that the 924 isn’t a true Porsche needs to do a bit of research on these Carreras and see if they still hold the same opinion afterwards! With only 400 or so produced, they’re bound to be big money, and in that context I’m not sure $65,000 sounds all that unreasonable. They’re not as valuable as the more highly developed GTS and GTR models, where you’d not see one south of $100,000 dollars. This particular model looks to be in excellent shape though little information is offered, and the Guards Red over black Fuchs is just about the perfect combination for this car. You can make a replica for much less than the asking price, but it won’t ever be as special as the original.

3.2 Preservation: 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa & 1988 911 Carrera Coupe

When it comes to classic, air-cooled 911s, the sky is the limit when it comes to choice. From Turbos to Targas, early SWBs variants to kitted out Sonderwunsch models, there’s a 911 for everyone. My favorite is the 3.2 Carrera. My first 911 experience was behind the wheel of a 1984 Carrera Coupe as a teenager. To this day, that drive is still vivid in my mind. You can still find good, driver quality 3.2s out there for reasonable sums, but to get a choice example, expect to shell out a lot more. The following two 3.2s are of the latter group, low mileage examples that are fit for a concours. First up is this 1986 Targa for sale in California.

Of all the 3.2s, Targas tend to be the most undervalued. Perhaps it’s because those who want a convertible just go the cabriolet route and the coupe is really reserved for those purists wanting the ultimate 911 experience. This Targa is certainly priced at the top of the market for this model, and at this price, you can get into a very nice 3.2 Coupe. I’m not a Targa hater, but I’m not certain I’d pull the trigger at this price on one. However, our next 3.2, a 1988 Coupe has me awe struck.

If you told me I could have any 911 in the world at this moment, it would be this car. Sure, there are plenty of Turbos, RSRs and the like to ogle over, but there’s something I find appealing about a 3.2 Coupe. For me and many others, it’s the 911 at its best. At close to $70,000, we’re yet again flirting with the top of the market for these 911s, but when you consider that figure won’t get you close to the list price on a new 911, perhaps a classic like this suddenly looks that much more attractive.

1984 Porsche 911 Carrera

The perils of searching for and writing about interesting cars for sale is that you inevitably start thinking. And it doesn’t matter what your present situation and car needs might be, you still start thinking about getting another car. It’s almost as if writing becomes an ascetic act with cars as the tempters we strive to overcome. But I digress…here we have another of my favorite reasonably-priced, ready-to-be-driven, 911s outfitted precisely how I’d want it: a 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera in Black, located on Long Island. This isn’t a low mileage example, but still appears excellent all around and simply awaits a new owner to whom it may bring driving pleasure.

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera on eBay

“The 3.2-liter 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera debuted hot on the heels of a very successful run of 911SC models, built from 1978 to 1983. The Carrera—priced at $32,000—shared most of its visual cues with its immediate predecessor, but benefitted from added power and performance, as well as other evolutionary updates.

The cars came as they had when the SC bowed out—in coupe, open Cabriolet, and the in-between Targa body styles. The chief upgrade in the Carrera was the larger 3.2-liter flat six engine, which looked much like that of the 3.0 it replaced but was built chiefly of all-new parts. One crucial change was an improved timing chain tensioner, which had been an issue on previous models. Also new was Bosch Motronic fuel injection, which replaced the K-Jetronic system of yore. The engine produced 200 horsepower and came mated to a Getrag five-speed manual transmission. This was enough to propel the Carrera from 0 to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds.

Standard goodies included leather upholstery, air conditioning, power windows, a sunroof, and 15-inch alloys, while cruise control, 16-inch wheels, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo were popular options. For those who wanted to appear faster than they actually were, a Turbo Look appearance package was available on coupes, which provided the large whale tail and wider rear wheelwells, but not the actual turbocharger.”

The New York Times has described the 1980’s 911 as one of the top five collectible cars for 2013. These vehicles are still affordable. Check out the Haggerty Insurance web site: hagerty.com/valuationtools/HVT/VehicleSearch/Report?vc=883090. The vehicle for sale is tuely a unique automobile. It is for the true collector who seeks out one owner and meticulously maintained automobiles. Purchased new in December of 1983 from Walter Donaldson Porsche-Audi located in Hicksville New York. It remained in the possesion of the owner untill his recent death. Recently purchased from the estate I have neither registered it nor re-titled it thus it retains its one owner history. The vehicle just went through a complete inspection from a Porsche Mechanic who commneted that this vehicle is one of the best maintained older 911’s he has ever worked on and was surprised to see the mileage on the car was over 160,000. In thirty years as a collector of classic and antique autos I am not sure I have ever come across a vehicle that has been maintained and documented as well as this one has. The original owner retained a documented history of practically every repair ever done on the vehicle as can be seen in some of the pictures below.

This 911 starts and drives effortlessly. All mechanical aspects of the car work as they should. A/c blows cold, radio, wipers, lights, etc etc work as intended. Appearance wise this car shows up extremely well. The paint is in excellent condition with no visual chipping or rust. The car has been garaged during its entiere life and with that comes some small door dings that are only noticeable in the correct lighting. Undercarriage of the car appears to be in very good condition. Engine compartment is in very good condition as well as the trunk. Interior is in good shape with some wear on the drivers seat but no tears. Door panels are in good shape but may need some sprucing up. Dash is in excellent shape. Sun roof is in excellent shape and works perfectly. Radio is a Blankpunt and works as intened along with the automatic antenna. The only after market addition appears to be a radar detector. I am not sure if it works but can obviously be removed without any effort.

I have set a realistic reserve on this vehicle. Please do not bid unless you intend to purchase. The vehicle is available for inspection(located on Long Island, New York) for those who want to see the vehicle before bidding.

509

For a 30-year-old car with more than 160,000 miles this Carrera appears to be in remarkable shape. The seats show minimal wear, the dash looks excellent, and the paint still looks to have retained a good deal of its luster. The engine bay seems especially clean for a car of this mileage. Given that the seller claims to have a documented service history on hand, these qualities all combine for an excellent car that while garaged its whole life has still been given a proper amount of driving. As with any car of this mileage you’ll want to have a thorough PPI, but at the very least I think we’re looking at one of the better examples of a 3.2 Carrera that has not spent its life as a low-mileage collector. Bidding is currently at $17,500 and the reserve has been met. It wouldn’t surprise me to see this come up just a bit more and likely finish right around $20K. Overall, another excellent example of a classic Black 911!

Tuner Tuesday: 1995 Porsche 911 RS Tribute

They say God is in the details, and if that is the truth than this car must certainly be holy. For 993 fans, it may just be the Holy Grail – a car that was never offered in great quantity or in the United States at all. Similar to yesterday’s 993 Carerra RSR, the Supercup version of the car had a roadgoing derivative as well – the Carrera RS and RS Clubsport. While the RS took the normal “add lightness” route, the RS Clubsport was an out-of-the-box race car, replete with roll cage and all amenities removed. Not content that these cars should remain out of U.S. hands, several copies of the RS and RS Clubsport cars have been made, but perhaps none as exacting as today’s Riviera Blue 1995:

1995 Porsche 911 993 Carrera RS Clubsport “Tribute”

The 993 Carrera RS Clubsport is the ultimate of all naturally aspirated air cooled 911′s. There are even fewer Clubsports built by Porsche than the RS it is based off of.

The Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport is a lightweight variant of the Porsche 993 Carrera, and a lighter version of the RS. This RS version in particular is a track-oriented Carrera RS Clubsport with only limited road usability. It features a naturally aspirated 3.8 liter engine with 300 hp. On the outside, it is easily distinguishable by a special non-retractable rear wing, small front splitter and 3-piece 18” aluminum wheels. The headlight washers were also deleted for additional weight savings. On the inside of an original Clubsport, the rear seats were removed, carpet removed, all power functions including radio, power locks, have been removed and two racing seats and flat door panels were installed. Sound proofing was eliminated completely.

The Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport was produced in model year 1995 and 1996. It was street legal in European and many other countries, but was not exported to the US.

This Porsche 993 Carrera RS Clubsport Tribute Re-Creation started off as a base model 993. This vehicle was the perfect candidate to convert into a rare sought after clubsport; the shell / tub is in great condition with no previous repairs or damage.

All parts used on this specific build are all original Porsche parts. Since many items from the 993 RS Clubsport are very hard to find or NLA, tracking them down was not easy. Every bolt, nut, washer, clip, hardware is brand new from Porsche Germany. Not one single component was left used or untouched. The vehicle was completely stripped down and rebuilt new with 0 miles. This vehicle is a rebuilt title due to previous water damage before the build up, the tub is clean with no accident or body damage history, it was never touched. View the project page on our website tunersmotorsports.com to see the before and after including the media blasting process.

The original 993 RS Clubsport was built mostly for track use, and were never imported to the US for street legal use. This RS Clubsport recreation however is intended to be used both on street and track, giving the owner the opportunity to enjoy this vehicle anywhere!

This Clubsport Tribute started off as a clean, base model Porsche 993 Carrera 2 Coupe. The entire vehicle was stripped down to its bare galvanized frame and built from the ground up. All parts on this vehicle are original Porsche Carrera RS parts, giving it a true “tribute” title to it. It took many years to gather all of the original parts from all over the world to complete this vehicle to near exact specifications that the factory would deliver back in 1995. Not one nut, bolt, seal went un-touched. The entire suspension was overhauled with original RS components, JIC Cross RS Coil overs, factory cup adjustable sway bars and every nut and bolt was replaced with factory new. The engine and transmission were reconstructed with new components; the engine built into a 3.8L and the transmission assembled with steel synchronizers, a lightweight flywheel and racing clutch. This RS also sports a super cup exhaust system, custom x-pipe, and original exhaust manifolds modified to eliminate heat exchangers. The brakes were upgraded to the “big reds”, 322mm front and 299mm rear, steel braided lines, cross drilled vented rotors and Pagid pads.

On the exterior of this tribute, the vehicle features a functional original rear plastic wing, original front lower spoiler, original RS side rocker panels, original front aluminum lightweight hood, original lightweight European doors, original lightweight rear thin glass and door windows. The RS Clubsport has been painted Riviera blue, a color from the era, in a single stage paint. The front and rear bumpers were converted to original European with the added original RS front air ducts and clear lenses, and European amber tail lights to compliment the rear. The roof panel was also removed during the build, and a light-weight carbon fiber panel was installed. Take notice as well that this RS has original center lock system installed, with original Speedline cup center lock wheels for Porsche, a rare find.

Getting to the interior of this vehicle; the original RS Clubsport from Porsche came naked, no carpet, no accessories with a full weld-in 6 point roll cage. The roll cage is to near-exact specifications that Matter cages installed into the original vehicles in the 90’s. This RS followed the same concept, but instead it was opted to have a lightweight RS carpet installed for a more “street-able” feel. Two Recaro Pole Position seats with alcantara centers and blue stitched leather match the blue stitched leather center console with original RS 6 speed aluminum and leather shifter and a blue stitched alcantara dashboard. The roof liner and side panels were done in alcantara as well. Vehicle features a completely functional original A/C system for hot climate areas.

This RS Clubsport is as close to an original RS from the time as you can get. The feel, looks and overall quality of the build resembles factory new.

The level of detail on this car is pretty impressive – all OEM parts or at least OEM replicated parts means this was both an extensive and expensive build. I’d recommend visiting the TuneRS Motorsport link to see where the car came from and how it was built; it is certainly impressive. Really the only item which is out of place but not unwelcome are the Supercup-spec center lock wheels. They’re great looking and suit the design perfectly, though the original came with 5-bolt versions of the wheels as seen on the Turbo 3.6 in the U.S.. Price? If you have to ask, it’s going to be a lot, and $145,000 for a 993 generation Porsche sure seems like a lot. However, real RS Clubsports hover in the 180,000 Euro range and getting them to the U.S. would certainly be difficult. Further, though I haven’t priced out the parts listed here my guess is that a solid chunk of the asking price would be eaten up just by ordering them all. Just as with the 4000 Quattro from yesterday, then, you’d probably be silly to try to replicate this vehicle as I’m not sure you’d come out significantly better off for all of your aggravation. That, and this one is achingly beautiful. Hats off to TuneRS for making one heck of a piece of Porsche art.

1985 Porsche 911 Carrera

It’s inevitable while perusing car ads. There always a particular car, whether you know it or not, that you’ll come across and say to yourself, “If I was in the market today, I’d be giving this car a long look.” Such is the case with the car featured here, a 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera located in Pennsylvania. Choosing whether to pursue a 911SC or its immediate predecessor the 3.2 Carrera in many ways comes down to what cars are available and your budget. Thanks to its larger displacement engine the 3.2 Carrera is generally perceived to be an improvement upon the 911SC, but whether that improvement balances out the cost difference between the two likely comes down to one’s own preferences. The truth is the two models are very similar, especially now that any example will be approaching 30 years of age. So regardless of preference, it’s difficult to go wrong with a well-sorted example of either model.

The p.o. added ft. and rear spoilers. I added a cat bypass and a cold air kit from evolution motor sports (and have those parts to replace) along with 7+8 inch real fuchs that are refurbished, new bilstein sport shocks front and rear and new sport comp. bfgs. There is a bit of wear on piping or bead of driver seat and small blem about a 1/4 inch in bottom of seat surface, rest of int. is very good. No dash cracks. I have both books, both keys, and some service records, including a 915 rebuild with new clutch. No leaks, no smoke and the car shifts and performs flawlessly. I do not believe that the auto check is correct on the ownership count as I believe that I am the fourth owner. I consider this car to be in very, very good over all condition.

A couple months ago I featured this Black 1981 Porsche 911SC that had similar mileage and was in similar condition to the car featured here. That SC was bid up to $27,400, which is very good money for a SC as anyone can see from the lengthy discussion we had in the comments regarding the SC market. That tells me that the price here of $29,000 isn’t entirely unreasonable, but I still feel it’s a touch on the high side. That Black SC was around the highest I have seen an SC bid recently, with most cars coming in under $20K. So I think we may have a similar situation here. The price here may be high but perhaps it’ll be a bit of a market-setter for a 3.2 Carrera of this condition. I’d still like to see it come down in price a bit, but if this is where the market is, then so be it. Regardless, a fantastic looking Carrera that for my eye comes exactly how I’d want it.

Tuner Tuesday: 1975 Ruf Carrera RS

Without a doubt, Ruf is the supreme tuner of Porsches – notably the turbo models. Their legendary performance is the stuff of dreams for enthusiasts and nightmares for competitors; Ruf simply defines the market. Ruf Automobiles is also one of the few select tuners which carry their own build tags, renaming the original Porsche-manufactured cars to be known as Rufs when they leave the factory. But as with all companies, Ruf started on a much smaller scale in 1975, turning out modified 911s that hinted at their future as a premier tuner. Today there is one such model for sale, a early Ruf-modified Carrera RS:

The original 2.7 RS is a bit of a legend, and combined with the upgrades from Ruf you have a formidable combination. Having undergone a full restoration this car certainly looks the part. Despite this, the asking of this Ruf creation is only around a third of what a real RS would set you back. Is it worth it? While some of the originality has been lost, this Ruf will certainly out perform the original RS in just about every measure. Were it my money, I think I could certainly live with the difference, but then I’m well out of my league looking at this ride. Still, a man can dream, and I think this is a dream-worthy ride by anyone’s measure.

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera – REVISIT

The Isis Blue 1984 911 Carrera we featured in September is back up for sale with a slightly lowered price of $23,900.

The below post originally appeared on our site September 18, 2013:

The first time I got behind the wheel of a 911, it was a slate blue ’84 Carrera 3.2. I was still on my learner’s permit then, but even to this day, there has been nothing quite like a 911 across my motoring career. It’s one of those outliers in the automotive world; a layout that few have attempted, especially in a sports car. But for a staggering 50 years, the basic formula of a flat six swung out over the rear axle has stayed the same. Will the 911 be with us another 50 years from now? Personally, I wouldn’t doubt it, because cars like this Isis Blue 1986 Carrera 3.2 for sale in Arizona have staying power.

Introduced to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1963, the 911 was a larger, more powerful and refined replacement to the much loved 356. The 911 made its debut in the United States for model year 1965 and was an instant success offering robust German engineering in a superbly balanced sports car. By the early 1980’s Porsche AG was faced with a decision of whether or not to keep the 911 program going or replace it all together. A decision was made and the 911 program continued, making way for the redesigned 3.2 model. For model year 1984 Porsche introduced a much improved 911 and brought back the Carrera name. It was to be the very last iteration of the original 911 series, and offered more power, improved electronics, brakes, suspension and handling. Many Porsche enthusiast say the 3.2 is the best generation of the 911 and best value.

This one for sale is priced right in the sweet spots for 911 3.2s that have been used more regularly than your garage queens. By no means should folks be scared off by 911s of this era with over 100,000 miles, as these are fairly hearty cars that, if treated well, will pay you back with plenty of driving enjoyment. Sure, certain upkeep and parts may be pricey, but sometimes you’ve got to pay to play. Having driven my fair share of 911s over the years, I know it’s my destiny to own one at some point. A 3.2 Carrera like this is squarely on my radar.

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.

1975 Porsche 911 2.7 Euro Carrera Coupe

Here in the US, the 1974-1977 911 is the red-headed stepchild of the 911 lineage (at least among collectors). These cars featured neither the original long-hood design of the pre-1974 911 nor did they possess the fuel-injected 3.0 liter engine and 915 transmission of the 911SC. As such, they remain confined to no man’s land. There is, however, an exception: the Euro 2.7 Carrera, which utilized the 2.7 liter MFI engine from the 1973 Carrera RS. Rather than the 173 hp produced in the top of the range 911S of the period, the Euro model’s engine produced 210 hp and had the same widened rear fenders and lower weight as the RS Touring. Which brings us to the car featured here: a Lime Green(!) 1975 Porsche 911 2.7 Euro Carrera Coupe.

The seller of this car has left the buyer to do a lot of the leg work to determine this car’s present state. It looks good and the Lime Green paint is such an eye-catching color on the classic 911 body. The interior is…interesting. I’m not sure I’ve come across a scotch plaid interior so it’s certainly rare! Otherwise, the interior looks to be in equally good condition as the exterior and given the cleanliness of the engine compartment I would hope this is a well maintained example. It needn’t be stated that any serious buyer will want to know the full state of the mechanicals and make sure that the service history has been suitable. I have seen these cars listed anywhere from $80,000 to $200,000 so I will not hazard a guess at a reasonable price for this particular car, but bidding is currently at $70,100 with reserve still on. Value aside, this a rare and eye-catching car that would be a joy to drive, but will likely come at a very steep price. I definitely will have my eye on this one to see if it sells.
