1982 Porsche 928 Weissach Edition

This is one of those holy **** cars. Here we have a 1982 Porsche 928 Weissach Edition. I will admit before looking at this one I did not know much about the 928 Weissach Edition. I’ve seen plenty of the 911 Weissach Edition, but not the 928. Like the 911 Weissach, the 928 was intended to celebrate Porsche’s Motorsports department located in, you guessed it, Weissach, Germany. It was the 20th anniversary of the groundbreaking at the site. And we know that Porsche likes to make special editions.

Like many Porsche special editions, the 928 Weissach doesn’t hit you with a bunch of performance upgrades. It’s all cosmetic, but while the 911 made do mostly with interesting colors, the 928 turns the luxury dial up with its additions. The most obvious of these additions is the leather. The Weissach came with medium brown leather and if you could touch it, then it probably was leather. You also received a matching leather 3-piece luggage set made by Seeger. Because who would dare travel in their Porsche Grand Tourer without matching luggage? The exterior is Hellbronze Metallic, which is a nice color and furthers the theme of elegance. Other items were included as well: upgraded stereo, electric sunroof, forged alloy wheels, and front and rear spoilers. The overall impression though is straightforward: the 928 Weissach was for the buyer who wanted their Porsche luxury cruiser to be even more lux and more exclusive. The package cost $5,940 so you definitely had to want it.

Porsche said they’d make only 205 of them. That’s almost half the number of the 911 Weissach built so they’re pretty rare. I don’t know how many of those were equipped with a manual transmission (a 3-speed automatic also was available), but this one is a manual. It also has a stupid low 14,030 miles on it. Hot damn!

1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition

Porsche has a way of pushing the boundaries of taste when it comes to their special edition models. In some ways, I can understand this. For the most part, many of Porsche’s special edition or commemorative edition models are distinguished solely by their cosmetic differences – typically in the guise of special exterior colors and unique interior combinations – relative to standard 911s. But in many cases the interior choices seem very much outside the norm, or at least of limited desirability. Boundaries do need to be pushed in order to stand out, but for a marque with such a long and storied history I half expect something a little more classic. I’m not sure there is any better example than the 911SC Weissach Edition. These models were produced in limited numbers (408 in total) to celebrate Porsche’s Motorsports team fittingly located in Weissach, Germany. Exterior color choices were both excellent and eye-catching: Platinum Metallic or Black Metallic with each sporting Platinum Metallic painted Fuchs wheels. The interior was equally eye-catching: Doric Grey with Burgundy carpeting. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike the Weissach Edition interior, after all I love a bright red interior, but I do think it might take some getting used to. Either way, it is a unique looking 911 and like any special edition there aren’t many of them around. The one seen here is said to be a Platinum Metallic example and sits with 139K miles on it.

Convertible Week: 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach Edition

When most people think about hybrid vehicles, images of haphazardly placed Greenpeace bumper stickers on oddly shaped compact sedans come to mind. Today its a different story, with hybrid emblems gracing small Toyotas right on up to the flagship of the Porsche range, this 918 Spyder. The 918 Spyder took over as the cost-no-object sports car in the lineup, but it was so much more than the Carrera GT. Unlike the Carrera GT, however, the 918 Spyder was a leap forward in terms of technology. With a 4.6 liter V8 and twin electric motors front and rear, this car puts down a total of 887 horsepower to the pavement. For those well heeled enthusiasts who missed out on procuring one new, this 2015 918 Spyder Weissach Edition for sale in New York City offers up a second chance at this state of the art supercar.

1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition

It is sometimes difficult to keep up with the many special edition vehicles Porsche has produced over the years. A byproduct of their limited model offerings is that there is a fairly persistent need to provide special edition models in order to keep buyers interested and coming back to the showroom. Some of these models, especially those that have come out of the Sonderwunsch and Exclusive programs, are some of the best (and rarest) 911s on the market. The edition we see here, a 1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition with a mere 9,508 miles, is one of those special editions that is more cosmetic than anything else, meaning these aren’t one of the super rare, jaw-dropping, machines like a 964 Turbo S. The primary distinguishing features of the Weissach are the exterior color, especially when Platinum Metallic as we see here, and the interior, which is a contrast of Doric Grey and Burgundy. This one also claims to have had the brakes from the 930 fitted from the factory, but I’m unaware of that being a standard offering on the Weissach Edition.
