Motorsport Mondays: Unconventional Updates – V8 E30 M3 and 944 3.0 16V

The Porsche 944 and BMW E30 are two of the most popular chassis to use in drivers events and club racing. Cheap, plentiful and effective, they’re usually turned up with race suspension, cages, and once you’ve run out of gusto, it’s not uncommon to see them get greater motivation. Generally for the 944, this means looking towards the turbocharged variant of the 2.5 liter inline-4 that was available from Porsche themselves; similarly, E30s receive a great swath of later Munich-based motors including the S50, S52 and even S54 if you’re really racey.

1963 Porsche 356B Cabriolet Race car

Flying the Gulf colors, this vintage racer’s paint almost looks too clean to take to the track.

The car comes with known history back to 1965 and $136,000 in receipts. The blueprinted engine has less than an hour on its current build. The Solex carbs and JE pistons setup has the engine bumping out 171 horsepower.

As the owner says, with all the history the car has racing it should be well sorted and the documentation should help keep that way.

A pretty and pure racer.

The buy-it now price is a steep $59,500.
