1981 Porsche 911SC

12289416_2

Yesterday, I passed a new 911 in a metallic sky blue I hadn’t seen before. It was so bright it caught me off guard, and looked a little out of place. On the 911SC however, it is perfectly offset by the black trim, especially when complimented by black Fuchs like this example. As 911s follow the rest of the automobile (and human?) race in getting larger and fatter with each progressive generation, it makes me want to reach back further and further when I think about owning a 911. The SC may look like a drug dealer’s car to some, but I love the “Tea Tray” spoiler and black fender guard. While today’s 911s are insanely fast and relatively safe compared to their ancestors, the stories and possibility of pendulum-action oversteer gives me that butterfly nervous-excited feeling.

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

The Porsche 993 Carrera 4S is just one of those cars that stops me in my tracks every time I see one. Sure, people tend to ogle over the 993 as it was the final air-cooled 911, but the C4S is just one of those cars that, 17 years on, is just about as close to timeless as you can get. The wide fenders and subtle ground effects just make for such a visually appealing sports car while the proportions are still close to the original vehicle that debuted all the way back in the 1960s. This C4S for sale is located in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It has had three owners, with the current owner deciding to sell due to light usage.

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.
