1996 Porsche 911 Carrera

I’m not exactly breaking any news here, but we are 25-years deep and then some on the 993 Porsche 911 chassis and it is aging extremely well. All the way from the base Carrera 2 up to the Turbo S and GT models, the models are desired and are probably going to stay that way. Naturally any starting point when dipping your toe in the 993 world is the Carrera 2 as it offers all the purity of the rear-wheel drive air-cooled 911 without spending over $100,000. This example up for sale in North Carolina is exactly that.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4

So long as I am contributing to GCFSB I will never pass up the chance to do a post on a 964 911, especially a black on with the mono block wheels. This is due partially in part to the fact that as I’ve learned more about classic 911’s I’ve become increasingly fond of the 964 as it is largely the first modern 911. Additionally black 964 911’s remind me of the bad guy’s car in the original Beethoven movie and that was the first time I ever saw a Porsche on the big screen. The movie producers were probably trying to make some kind of statement by having a dog killing scumbag drive a black Porsche but that was lost on me, all I saw was a car that I liked. I’ve gone through phases of swearing that 3.2 Carreras and SCs are the “one’s I’d go for” but at this point it has become clear that given my current living situation and driving habits, the 964 would make the most sense. Unfortunately¬†for me, many other Porsche enthusiasts feel the same way and the popularity of these cars is higher than ever. Still, the occasional deal pops up and I think it’s fair to say that despite not ideal mileage, this example is one of those deals.

Tuner Tuesday Super Trio: Three Generations of Supercharged 911s

Oh, how I do love the comparos! Today I’ve worked up a third tuner comparison, because frankly this interesting trio was just a bit too good to pass up – as were the other BMWs! But unlike the factory sourced Dinan and Alpina modded cars from earlier, this comparison focuses on some unusual Porsches. Supercharging isn’t the typical choice for the flat-6, but the bolt-on horsepower results are undeniable, bringing the normal flat-6 quickly up to Turbo levels of power. I have three generations compiled here, all popular in their own right but for different reasons. Which is the winner?
