1967 Porsche 911

I’ve come across quite a few early 911s recently in a wide variety of current build and condition. From fully prepped track cars to rusted out shells in need of serious restoration work to well kept drivers it seems just about every variety has popped up for sale. The model featured here falls into the third category and takes us back to nearly the beginning: a Tangerine 1967 Porsche 911 located in California. With 130 hp coming from the 2.0 liter flat-six engine these are not powerful cars by any modern standard, but for their day, given their reasonable curb weight, they still provide enough acceleration to move along at a brisk pace without much trouble.

I have owned this 911 for about 5 years. I purchased it from a man whose dad had left this car to him when he passed away. I believe the Dad was the original owner, so technically I am only the 2nd owner of this car.

This car runs like a new car, and it will cruise at 80mph for hours. If you are looking at this Ad then I don’t have to give you a lesson on Porsche or the 911. I am sure you know that the 911 when it came to the US, it was more expensive than the Corvette and the Jaguar E-type.

This is an original California BLACK PLATE Car, and it has never left California. This is a RUST FREE car. (check out the pics of the undercarriage and the front trunk area).

The car was in running condition when I bought it, even the paint on the car was in very good condition which could have been polished out. If it wasn’t for a poor quality of the front end repaint, I would have left the Paint original. (There is no sign of any repairs to the body in the front or anywhere on the car). One thing let to another, and about 3 years ago, I decided to restore the car.

We decided to go ahead a rebuild everything. The Engine was completely rebuilt with new bearings, gaskets, timing chains, Head studs, Cam sprockets etc. The Oil pump, Cam shafts, Heads, and Cylinders were rebuilt.

The Transmission was rebuilt with new 1st gear assembly, 1st and 2nd gear sliders, 3rd and 4th gear sliders, all 5 new Synchros, 1st gear dog teeth, 4th and 5th gear dog teeth, and 1st gear snap ring. The Flywheel was resurfaced, and the clutch was replaced with OEM SACHS clutch kit.

The Ignition system has been converted to Electronic ignition. No more points! The Alternator and the Starter were rebuilt.

The Fuel system was cleaned out, with new Fuel sending unit, Fuel pump, and rebuilt Weber Carburetors.

The brake calipers were rebuilt, and the pads and rotors and master cylinder is replaced. The shifter assembly and linkage were replaced.

The Exhaust Heater boxes were replaced with DANSK heater boxes. So there is heat inside the car. This car is ready for those long trips down the coast or cross country.

The Exterior was de-trimmed and repainted with Original style PPG Single Stage Tangerine Orange Paint. All the Chrome was re-chromed. and the weather seals were replaced.

The interior was re upholstered in original style and quality Leather + Vinyl. The carpets were replaced, and the headliner was replaced.

Everything on this car works, all the lights work, all the gauges work, The Wipers work, the horns work, the original radio works, the heater works.

This is a great example of an excellent condition driver quality 911. You can enter car shows, and it can win trophy’s, but it is NOT A Concours quality car. It would not be too much work to make it a concours quality car, but I have always believed that “Cars are meant to be driven” especially an early 911 like this one.

I have all the receipts of the work done to it in the last 3 years. I also have a written warranty from Motor Meisters for the engine rebuild for 1 year. I also have the “Porsche certificate of authenticity”

I have a few vintage cars, and I am so impressed with this 911, because it drives like a modern car but it is almost 50 years old.

This is a great opportunity to own a piece of Automotive History. The values on these cars are only going to go up.

The seller here has represented the state of this car quite well. It isn’t entirely original as it appears both the engine and transmission have been sourced from other models and while it looks in excellent shape it is not a concours car. This is, as he states, a period-correct driver and there will always be a place for that sort of car. Already having had the engine rebuilt and a decent bit of restoration work, there’s a good chance many of the headaches of a 46-year-old car will be mostly alleviated. The difficult assessment for a car such as this will always be the price. Any buyer is paying for a bit of history and some nostalgia, but the market for an early 911 has shot up to such a degree that even a non-original driver like this will cost significantly more than later examples that offer much more capable performance. At the moment, the asking price is at the high end of what it should sell for were everything original. So for this particular car it’s definitely a bit too high. Nonetheless, there aren’t a ton of period-correct driver-ready examples around so perhaps with some negotiation this car could be had for the right price. All that would then be left, would be to go for a drive.

1994 Porsche 928 GTS

While Porsche’s front-engined cars rarely receive attention equal to that of their rear-engined counterparts, we are still quite fond of them here at GCFSB. And that fondness grows considerably when we come across examples fitted with a manual transmission. A GT car certainly doesn’t require a manual gearbox, but our enjoyment of most any car is enhanced by its presence. Such is the case with the car featured here: a Black 1994 Porsche 928 GTS that has seen only around 37,000 miles. Coming from one of the final years of this GT car’s production, the 928 GTS featured a 5.4 liter V8 directing 345 hp to the rear wheels. With timeless styling and the performance/luxury combination only to be found in a good Grand tourer, these were a fantastic alternative to the more hard-edged 911 and for a time were the presumed future of the Porsche marque.

I was slightly torn about whether to feature this car because of the price and auction set-up. This seller is clearly hoping to extract every possible dollar from this sale, and while we certainly can’t fault any seller for that desire, setting the starting bid a mere $10,000 below a very high Buy It Now price really doesn’t provide for any great likelihood that this car will receive the attention it deserves. From all appearances this car looks excellent and if it comes with a complete service history then any buyer is surely going to end up with a great car. But I’m not sure this car would sell for $60,000 in an open auction, let alone the $82,900 that is being asked for here. I would be happy to be wrong about that because the 928 remains an underappreciated car, so I’ll have my eye on this one nonetheless.

1969 Porsche 911/912 Vintage Race Car

I’m not going to mince words here: I think this car is fantastic. Not in that high-dollar super-car performance sense of the word, but for the simplicity and execution of the build along with its overall look. What we have here is a 1969 911 body fitted with a race prepped 1.6 liter flat-4 from the 912 that has been mounted as far forward as the body would allow. The 912 was reputed to be a more capable handling machine relative to its more heralded 911 siblings in part because of the better chassis balance provided by the smaller and lighter 4-cylinder engines they utilized. Added to that capable handling is a sub-1800 lb weight propelled by an engine tuned to produce 130 hp. This car is sure to provide lively performance and immense driving fun. I’ll leave our readers to peruse the rest of the ad copy for a fuller sense of all the work done on this car. It appears very well executed.

This is one of those rare times when I think the seller may have undervalued the market for his own car. Or perhaps he’s just very realistic and I’ve grown too accustom to seeing Porsches offered at above market value. Bidding right now is at $24,100 and while the reserve has not been met, with a Buy It Now of $28,750 I feel pretty confident that we’ll see a sale here. This is a fully sorted and documented race car that is ready to drive and whose build would come at three to four times the price being asked here. It goes without saying that any serious buyer should know exactly what he or she is getting into with this sort of car, but I can’t help but think that this is a bargain.

Barn Find: 1971 Porsche 911T

We’ve shown a couple of cars like this one recently: Porsches from the ’70s that are in need of a lot of love so that they can be enjoyed again. The Heap of the Week I featured a couple of weeks ago would have been more suited for a full restoration seeking collector status. That car is remarkably similar to the car featured here and this one should probably be approached with a similar ideal. Here we have a Red 1971 Porsche 911T located in Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC.

509

Year: 1971
Model: 911T
Engine: 2.2 liter flat-6
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 71,395 mi
Price: No Reserve Auction

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1971 Porsche 911T on EBay

You are bidding on a 1971 911T 5-speed coupe w/o sunroof. It was manufactured 10/70. This is a “behind-the-barn” find that shows the results of being left out in the elements for too long. The car is all original and intact with 71,395 miles with matching numbers. Original color was Pastel Blue #2020 but now has a poor repaint to red. This car will require extensive restoration. The lower portions of the front pans have extensive rust. Full replacement of the front pans, right and left battery boxes, gas tank (?) and forward portion of the floor pans is required. The structure and pans to the rear of the mid-point, torsion tubes, shock mounts, etc. are clean and rust-free. Rockers show some minor rust, but seem to be intact. Rocker trim is S type. Door jambs, hinge mountings and surrounds are intact and still serve up that Porsche “ping” when closed. Headlight bowls are intact and are not rusted. All glass is original and present with some slight delamination showing in the front windshield. Some rust is present in the body panels as shown in the photos; the underside trailing edge of the rear deck lid is the worst. Original front seats will require recovering; rear seats are in good condition. Radio is not original. Door panels and hardware is all present. Top of the dash and rear deck panel will require replacement due to sun damage. Headliner is intact with original visors. All trim is present.

This is a roller (not a driver) with working steering, clutch, trans and emergency brake (main brakes are not operational). Forward mounts for front torsion bars are weak so some care in moving the car is required. Car can be easily loaded onto a flat bed or trailer. Engine does not run but turns over easily and is fully intact. Engine is stock 2.7, no AC and has original Weber carb setup and original air filter box. Wheels are original Fuchs (5). Body serial # is 911 112 0880 and engine # is 6115054.

The photos and the details outlined above present as best I can the present conditions of this car. Further photos and info can be provided on request and the car is available for inspection. There is a clean and current title for this car issued by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Willing to sell to buyers in Canada, Europe, Germany, UK and USA on the condition that payment is received in full and all shipping arrangements are made by the buyer prior to release of the car.

509

This car isn’t in as good a condition relative to the car I posted for the Heap of the Week. There’s quite a bit of rust on the body, the dash is shot, and this is only a roller, rather than a driver. But for a barn find those “features” aren’t necessarily unexpected. There also appears to be some confusion over the engine. The seller states that the car has a stock 2.7 liter engine, which of course is not the standard 2.2 of a 1971 911T. I would presume this is merely a typo, but it’s certainly worth investigating just to be sure. This car is offered on auction for No Reserve and ideally it could be had at a discount relative to the $21,000 price of the Heap. We shall see. These cars command very good prices when restored to excellent condition so even a car in this shape won’t come cheaply. With bidding currently at $4,500 this is surely something to keep one’s eye on, and while we’re likely to see that rise quickly, for someone interested in a project this could make for an interesting investment.

10K Friday: What’s the name of your hairdresser? TT v. Z3 v. Boxster v. SLK

509

Arguably, I haven’t been very kind to the cars I’ve dubbed “The Three Hairdressers”. Perhaps I haven’t been fair; each has its merits, each has its own neat designs, and each has its quirks. What ties all three together, though, is bang for the buck; today, on Ebay, you can get your choice of great condition TT, SLK or Z3 for around $10,000. Each is a well engineered car with similar purposes but different execution. To make matters a little more complicated on this week’s 10K Friday, I’ve thrown a “real” sports car into the mix in the guise of a 1997 Boxster. Which is the one for you? Let’s start by looking at the Audi:

Great color, great wheels, and in my mind the one that has very clearly aged the best out of the four. The TT also is the best year-rounder with Haldex all-wheel drive. It may be considered the least “sporty” of the group, but the TT is a great little car that can easily be turned up a few notches if you’d like. This one sure looks to be in great shape. Turbo Quattros not your cup of tea? How about a supercharged Merc?

509

I remember when these cars were launched, and I was pretty excited that after a fairly uninspired run there was suddenly a small supercharged SL with a folding hardtop. It sounded like a match made in heaven, and while the SLK wasn’t be best looking car Mercedes-Benz had ever put out, when equipped with the AMG Sport package, it did look pretty mean:

This is one of the most desirable color combinations.

This car has lower miles than the TT, but is automatic equipped – a package that lacked the punch of some of the others in the group. Still, these small convertibles aren’t all about speed, and the looks of this Mercedes look rap-video ready with the polished lip AMG wheels making the car really stand out. Overall it’s a tidy package, and the trump card is that folding hard-top, making it an attractive 3 season car for those who don’t always have sun. Rather see what the boys from Munich cooked up? Here’s a great 2.8 Z3:

509

The Z3 2.8 has the unfortunately position of being almost as expensive as the more powerful and better-wheeled M Roadster, and the shadow of that more desirable car hides what a really great car the Z3 can be. Inline-6, manual transmission, lower weight; great combination. While the styling wasn’t for everyone, it was a fitting tribute to the Z1 which inspired it. Take a look at this clean Z3:

The color combination is classic convertible; clean and proper. Unlike the earlier black interiors, the tan is livable in the sun, and still looks great. Out of the first three, the Z3 would give most more smiles driving down a back road, would probably be the cheapest to run, but is likely the least appealing of the three – it’s hard to shake that vision of the M hanging just out of reach. Want to kick it up a notch? How about a Boxster:

509

The Boxster is both loved and hated among Porsche fans. Like the 944, it’s the sales of Boxsters that allow those crazy 911s to stay alive, but most 911 owners would poo-poo the convertible as “just a Boxster”. Still, it’s hard to argue with the mid-engined flat-six platform in the corners, even if the 200 horsepower felt a little weak for the badge on the front:

Performance in a straight line between the four is shockingly similar – all around 200 hp, all in the 7 sec range to 60 mph. It all comes down to feel; the BMW and Porsche have their own driving characteristics, as do the very different Benz and Audi. Which is the winner? Well, they’re all quite nice; I can’t help but feel that the Audi is probably the deal of the four; I’d probably choose the Porsche 2nd but for the ask of the Porsche I’d really rather get into a 944 S2, honestly. I still think that the Audi has aged the best out of all of these and looks like the freshest design. Four season ability plus tuning potential are a bonus.

Which would you choose?

1980 Porsche 930

An eye-catching 930 always attracts my attention and this car certainly fits that bill. Combining the classic 911 body style with wider rear fenders and a preposterous whale tail, the 930 has an elegant aggressiveness that many of us here at GCFSB enjoy immensely. Take that shape and throw a color like Cobalt Blue onto it and you definitely have an attention-getting car. This is not a 930 that will fly under the radar, but rather an example that will stand out even in a crowd of fast Porsches. This 1980 Porsche 930 Coupe located in California was originally an European car that was imported into the US in 1985. While Porsche had withdrawn the 930 from the US market in 1980, it thankfully remained for sale in Europe, which provided a chance for interested buyers to import this fantastic sports car across the pond.

I am helping a customer sell his 1980 930 Turbo as he is in failing health. We are a German Auto Repair center, We are not a car dealer, we are Porsche enthusiasts. Check us out on line, European Motorsports, Vista, Ca. We have been servicing the owner Terry’s Porsche’s (He has 3) for over 2 years since he first moved here from Minnesota. This car has Minnesota tags that expired last year. Terry is the second owner & purchased the car from the original owner in Europe & shipped it here in July 1985 with 44,000km on the odometer as documented in the Customs paperwork. It has been through EPA , DOT & Customs compliance & have the original paperwork . The car can not be registered here in California without going through California state compliance. The speedometer / odometer was replaced then & restated @ zero miles when it brought into the USA, it now is showing 38340 miles. Air Conditioning was installed just after landing in the USA. In 1988 the turbo was upgraded to a K27 along with 911SC cams & Andial waste gate & adjustable boost, also Andial intercooler. The car has been well serviced & maintained and runs great. The car just had a major service including a valve adjustment in the last 50 miles. It has no oil leaks. Car has been mostly a garage queen for the last 10 years but runs strong like a Porsche 930 turbo should. In 2005 the car was professionally repainted with Glasurit paint to the original factory code. (304-9-3, Colbalt Blue) The paint job is show condition, no expense was spared. I have all the service records starting from July 1985 along with pictures of the repaint in progress. The interior is in near perfect condition with dark blue leather including the beautiful dash (leather & stitching is perfect with no stretch marks or sun damage) In the late 1980s a B&B dual outlet exhaust was installed, it has since then been converted back to single outlet due to noise. The rear valance still has the cutout on the right side for future use of a dual exhaust. The car is very fast, I am afriad to run it in third gear flat out, it’s just too fast. A new brake master cylinder was recently installed. The tires are brand new, the brake pads are 50% or better remaining ant the rotors are not worn or cracked. As documented in the records the car has only been driven about 1000 miles in the last 8 years. Excellence Magazine is listing 930 prices from 40K to 75K. This car is an exceptional example of a rare Euro version 930. Chassis# 93A0070240. The car is being listed elsewhere for sale & I reserve the right to end the auction early. The car can be seen at European Motorsports during normal business hours. Call Joe @ (760)599 9307

The general market for these cars has seen a fairly large uptick in recent years so opportunities to grab one at reasonable cost (assuming we aren’t already past that point) are surely fading fast. This car comes with a couple quirks of which any serious buyer will need to be aware given the potential collector nature of any 930. As the seller notes, the odometer was reset when it was imported so the listed figure of 38,840 is lower than the actual figure. With that said, at less than 70K total miles the mileage is still quite reasonable. I’d also like to see more pictures of the interior. If it shows in the condition the seller describes, then there is no problem, but it’s an odd omission from the ad for the car. Lastly, the cars comes with a couple modifications, none of which seem major, but they still may detract slightly from the overall value of the car. The Guards Red 1984 Porsche 930 I featured a couple of weeks ago was also a Euro car and sold for $43,188. I’d expect this car to come in a little below that because while it has fewer total miles than the 1984 it also doesn’t appear to be in quite as pristine condition. This is nonetheless a very striking car and with current bidding at $18,988 (with reserve still on) it might still be had at a decent price.

Double Take: Blower v. Displacement – 1989 944 Turbo v. 1991 944 S2

509

Recent technology, engineering and computers have challenged the age-old automotive adage: “There’s no replacement for displacement”. The other day I caught an article claiming the new twin-turbo Audi S8 and S7 can be beefed up and are running sub-4 second runs to 60mph. Not bad for only 4 liters; that would best any muscle car from the 1960s without too much trouble. That, coupled with the Porsche 968 I wrote up the other day got me wondering; given about the same money, would I choose a 944 Turbo or a 944 S2? Well, lucky for us I found two good examples at right around the same miles and price; let’s start with the Turbo:

509

Year: 1989
Model: 944 Turbo
Engine: 2.5 liter turbocharged inline-4
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 102,073 mi
Price: $13,000 Buy It Now

Maintenance:

-Clutch kit replacement and re-surface of flywheel (2006, 62,751 mi)

-Timing belt and water pump replacement (2009, 85,347 mi)

-Alternator replacement (2009, 89,378 mi)

-New tires (2011, approx. 2000 mi driven on them)

-New battery (2013, 102,073 mi)

History:

I’m the third owner. Originally purchased in Germany (Canadian Military Car Sales, Nurnberg). Second owner had it for approx. six years / 8000 miles when I purchased it in 2011. I have the original paperwork and still in contact with the second owner. I drove it (approx. 59,000 mi)so it has normal wear and tear on it but mechanically it is in excellent shape and runs quite good.

This car seems to have an interesting history, matched by it’s interesting color combination. The white interior includes the more rare sport seats with tremendous bolsters; those bolsters show wear (as does the white) which is inevitable if you want to drive the car. The exterior shade is one I’ve only seen on later 944S2s interestingly, and for a Turbo is pretty unique. Some mechanical history is included, which is nice, and while this car isn’t pristine I’d classify it as a very nice driver example. There is some light wear showing outside, the wheels don’t shine as they originally did and the dash is cracked. Great, now stop worrying about those things and just drive it. The 1989s – though not termed “S” – got all of the S upgrades including the M030 suspension and uprated 250hp motor. These are great driving cars, well balanced and fairly bulletproof as long as you don’t turn the boost up too much. Older turbo technology a little too scary for you? How about jumping up a bunch of valves and half a liter to the 944 S2:

509

Year: 1991
Model: 944 S2
Engine: 3.0 inline-4
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 106,000 mi
Price: No Reserve Auction, $13,000 opening bid

I have a much loved 1991 Porsche 944s2 with rare options. It is the last year produced and has the one year only options that became the 968. Red with Gray and black interior. Everything works flawlessly and has been maintained to an incredible standard by one of the renowned 944/928 specialist shops. It has new leather because I wanted it not because it needed it. It has 968 matte black cupII wheels with new tires but I have like new original wheels and tires with it. It has ice cold air, Power windows and mirrors, Sunroof, new Porsche drilled rotors and pads. Dash is perfect, no cracks. I just did the full service cam tensioner / timing belt etc. I spent some money on this because my mechanic is the best. Just powder coated to factory specs the valve cover. This car needs nothing. The underside you can eat off of and I just installed a Alpine unit with Bluetooth and audio streaming of IPOD or Pandora radio with out the need to plug anything in but it has a USB plug to charge. Voice dialing and music is amazing. 5speed with limited slip differential(ultra Rare) and the 10 speaker sound system from the factory another rare option code, 968 spoiler. Original working Porsche stereo. 105k miles. All compression is like new and near even. $13500. You wont find many cars as nice and unmolested as this example. I spent years searching for this car. Never tracked adult owner.

The 944 S2 was indeed the prototype for the 968, only missing it’s 6-speed option and some minor exterior refreshing. To some, the earlier “chunky” looks of the 944 are preferable. Guards Red is a safe bet on these cars and generally always looks great. As usual, I wish the Cup wheels were silver rather than Matte Black, but the sale seems to include the original Design 90s that should be on there. Like the Turbo, some maintenance is done so that’s a plus, and the interior has been refreshed “just because”. Although this car doesn’t have the sport seats of the Turbo it does carry the limited-slip rear end, making it a bit more fun in the twisties.

So, for around $13,000, which is a better deal? Well, both are pretty solid looking cars; ultimately, I think it comes down to what you want to do. Day to day, I’d have to argue the S2 is probably a better choice – they’re easier to drive around town, and because of the linear power delivery they’re actually a tad bit quicker around a track than a stock Turbo in my experience. However, “stock” and “944 Turbo” seldom go together, so if you’re inclined to have an occasional car with more scoot, the Turbo is capable of that in strides. It wouldn’t be hard to push 100 hp more than the S2 out of the 2.5, and then it would be no contest of which would be faster. I do like the rarity of the S2, but that pretty Turbo seems to be calling my name this time around…

Which would you choose?

Motorsport Monday: Build your own 917

509

So last week I wrote up a Laser “917” replica that earned me no favor with anyone. Personally, at $14,000 I think that car was well built and would be a hoot to drive, but I also agreed that for $14,000 there are a lot of other cars I’d rather have. Why? Well, for one, the Laser didn’t really recreate the magic shape of the 917 particularly well or gracefully. But as I mentioned in that post, with the explosion of used race car prices exacting replicas of the real multi-million dollar cars have popped up for sale. Costing less than a motor service on a real 917, you can buy one of these replicas and get the look and feel of Steve McQueen without all of the crashing and money. Well, at least the money part. Take a look at this ready to power rolling chassis by Race Car Replicas:

Porsche 917K History

The Porsche 917 is a racecar that gave Porsche its first overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971. The car was designed under the leadership of Piëch and Porsche chief engineer Helmuth Bott and powered by the Type 912 flat-12 engine of 4.5, 4.9 and 5 litres. The 917 was capable of a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 2.3 seconds, 0–124 mph (200 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, and a top speed of over 240 mph (390 km/h). The 917 is one of the most iconic sports racing cars of all time, largely for its high speeds and high power outputs, and was made into a movie star by Steve McQueen in his 1971 film Le Mans.

If I had the budget to run a 911 race car, I’d rather run one of these all day long. Run a Porsche gearbox and motor and PCA will let you run it with the real deals. Sure, you won’t likely be competitive unless you spend crazy money preparing it; I’d get a reliable 3.2 motor and 930 transmission to make it dependable, fun and powerful without going over the top. Or, if you want to be a little unconventional and tick some P-car fans off, throw a WRX turbo boxer in there to save some money. Either way it would be an entertaining ride!

If it were my money, as much as I love the gulf colors, I’d see if they could make one of the “Hippie” cars – I personally like the longtail purple and green, but martini stripes over the silver or white (that white car was the magnesium chassis car!) would be my second choice. How would you build this up?

Revisit: 1997 Porsche 911 Andial Twin-Plug Twin-Turbo

The 1997 Porsche 911 ANDIAL Twin-Plug Twin-Turbo we featured back in September on Rennlist has cropped up on eBay. As I write this I’m not sure what the reserve is, but bidding is at $119,000$ and it’s not met yet – strong bidding for a 993 Turbo, but in line with the rarity and specialness of this car. We’ll see if it gets close to the original $170,000 asking price!

The below post originally appeared on our site September 10, 2013:

I find it extraordinarily sad that this year saw the nearly unnoticed passing of one of the great Porsche tuning firms, ANDIAL. If you’re newer to the scene, ANDIAL probably doesn’t mean much to you, but if you grew up in the 1980s or were a fan of motorsports then they were one of the top tuning firms pushing out some of the fastest Porsches in the world – they were really the U.S. equivalent of Ruf. They backed that performance up with race-winning efforts – ANDIAL became the defacto 962 race engine supplier in the United States, and racked up an impressive string of both prototype and GT racing wins and championships. Though they were very well respected, ANDIAL downsized as the trio of owners aged and then passed away, culminating in the retirement this past February of the last remaining founder, Dieter Inzenhofer, Porsche Motorsports North America bought the name, but with undisclosed plans to use it, we’ll just have to wait and see. Coming across an ANDIAL tuned car is something of a rare treat, and for the 993 they cooked up a twin-plug, twin turbo 3.8 motor that was just a monster. Today’s example is one of the best prepared in the world:

Car History
Here is the information I have been able to glean about the car.
This highly optioned car was purchased in the Chicago area by car collector John Pizer. He immediately had it flat-bedded to the Andial facility with only delivery miles on the car.
The full Andial 3.8 liter twin plug conversion was performed at an estimated cost of 55-60 thousand dollars.Andial Twin Plug
A few years later the car was purchased by collector Amir Fahti in Calabasas with around 4000 miles on the clock.
In 2007 I purchased the car from Mr. Fahti with 27,181 miles on the clock. Unfortunately Mr. Fahti had lost the build sheet on the car. Andial confirms that this is one of the 19 certified 3.8 liter twin plug conversions, of which only 17 remain. Andial Registry

Over the next few years I had Michael Schatz MKS Performancein Camarillo fettle the car into tip top condition, replacing the front differential, viscous coupler, clutch accumulator, steering rack and installing a set of GT2 uprights and tie rods, new hood shocks, breeze constant torque clamps on the intercooler hoses and forge diverter valves. I removed the k40 radar detector and installed functional front brake cooling ducts and a larger Cargraphics oil cooler. I installed yellow rear seat belts to match the front seat belts. Finally, a complete corner balance and alignment and rake was performed.

In 2011 elected to make this car into my vision of the ultimate street version of a GT2.
I contacted 1998 IMSA GT2 champion Jochen Rohr who generously supplied me with the rear wing and carbon fibre deck-lid plus the BBS wheels he had left over from that race team. I sourced a brand new OEM European narrow-body front bumper and some hand laid fender flares and commissioned Ed Palmer at Kundensport to perform the conversion.

The car is everything I could have hoped for. It looks fabulous in my eyes. It rides very smoothly. The GT2 uprights and tie rods have minimized bump steer and the ride is not harsh in any way but it still handles brilliantly. The paint is exceptional. It is the best rding 993 I have ever driven. I clay barred it using Final Detail as the lubricant over a weekend and it presents very well indeed. It is nearly impossible to put the car cover on by yourself because it keeps shooting off as the paint is so smooth. Obviously the car is brutally fast but also very tractable. The larger pistons on the RS rear calipers match the 14 inch front brakes very well. A minor service and detailing was performed last week.

With the passing of Arnold in 2011 and the purchase of Andial by Porsche Motorsports in 2012, I believe no more of these cars will be built and a stellar chapter in Porsche history has closed.

Nits to pick:

There are a few rock chips on the front.

The front tires can rub if the wheel is turned to full lock at parking lot speeds.

The Thielert dual program street/race gas ecu is a bit unsophisticated and no longer supported. They need two revolutions of the crank to start the car and can run a little rough just off of idle. It occaisionally becomes “confused” and can cough and spit for a bit. Then it remembers it’s manners and clears up. It is not foolproof. You need to make sure you have 100 octane race gas in the tank before switching to the race gas setting or damage could occur.

There is a more modern Andial aproved ecu available, but you lose the dual programming capabilities. Having the “psychopath switch” under your left hand is just too much damn fun! As a result I elected to keep the dual program ecu and live with the very minor flaws.

The price may seem outrageous, but it’s in line with some of the Ruf cars. Although this is a bit of a home-brew combination of several different car looks, I think it pulls it off exceptionally well. The GT2 flares look perfect, the wheels look perfect, I love the understated color…I have to say, the only thing I’m not really a fan of is the seatbelts. Some of the technology in the engine tuning has progressed and the owner notes that this earlier multi-level Theilert computer has its hiccups, but depending on what you wanted to do this could be solved either somewhat expensively in a standalone programmable ECU or very expensively by sending it to PMNA to let them sort it out.

I don’t think the ANDIAL name really carries the weight of the name Ruf outside of the Porsche crowd, so my guess is that someone who is really in the 993 know is going to be the one to scoop this gem up. The price is probably realistic given the rarity and the modifications, but it’s a pretty narrow market for this car. You could replicate the look easily enough if you have deep pockets, but that motor is really something special. It’s a shame that we won’t be seeing any more from ANDIAL, but I do hope then name doesn’t fade away completely into obscurity. Given the choice between this car and a Ruf, I would have to think long and hard before plunking down my hoard of cash.

1978 Porsche 911 Race Car

A fully prepped race car is always a fun find, especially when it’s a Porsche that won’t cost six-figures to purchase. This car won’t have six-figure performance either, but it should still provide ample amounts of fun driving and learning. Here we have a 1978 Porsche 911 painted in lovely Gulf Blue. It looks to be in great shape and, as I always love with these cars, appears to have been a build that favored weight reduction over going for higher power. A no-frills Porsche that you can get in and drive. There’s much to love there!

We could do with a bit more detail on the specific modifications to this car, but as it stands it looks like a well executed example that should be very quick given the decent power and low weight. The classic Gulf Blue paint is always a winner on a track car and the condition of the paint looks to be excellent. While that isn’t a necessity for a track car it isn’t a detriment either. A prepped car like this one provides the opportunity for any buyer to step right into a car built to handle track duty without having to deal with the many financial headaches and frustrations that come with embarking on such a project. The cost of that convenience is all relative as the purchase price always will be lower than the cost of doing the build yourself, but also never comes cheap. I previously featured this 1973 Porsche 911E track car that sold for just under $30,500 so the price here of $34,500 is in the ball-park for what a fully-prepped classic Porsche should sell.
