1. 2009 Porsche GT3 Cup For Sale

What could possibly go wrong with a decade old Porsche race car that has been driven hard its entire life? This one was recently given a thorough going-through with an engine, transmission, and suspension rehash just two operating hours ago. The great thing about a 997 GT3 Cup is that it is old enough to be not quite so expensive, and new enough that there are plenty of shops willing to work on it and set it up for you.

2. 1988 Porsche 928 S4 Track Car For Sale

You wouldn’t normally think of a 928 as being a good track car, but this one is completely set up for racing or track days with a nice solid roll cage built in. The limited slip differential and 5-speed manual make this a great starting point, and once you pull out a lot of the things that make a 928 exceedingly heavy, it might have the potential to perform pretty well on course. If for no other reason than it has a nice rowdy V8 under the hood.

3. 1997 Porsche 911 3.8 RSR For Sale

Back in the days of 993, the RSR was a track king. These days it’s a collector special, but it would be an absolute boss move to show up to your next HPDE event with a twenty-plus year old superstar. The last of the naturally-aspirated aircooled race car monsters, this RSR deserves to be set free on a race track once again. Be the hero to let it roam.

4. 2006 Porsche Cayman Track Car For Sale

For my money, a 987 Cayman that has received some moderate track preparation is the best place to start if you are addicted to Porsche and track time. For one thing, this car is among the most forgiving and capable chassis Porsche has ever built. It’s compliant and quick, and will instantly instill confidence. It rewards consistency, but won’t punish mistakes the same way the 993 above would. For another thing, spares are inexpensive and easy to come by.

5. 2011 Porsche Cayman Race Car For Sale

And if a Cayman track car is good, then a Cayman race car is even better. Prepared for the GX class at the 24 hours of Daytona, this Cayman features a 3.8-liter engine from an X51 Carrera GTS 997, producing a whopping 405 horsepower. The seller claims more than a quarter million was spent preparing this car, and based on the parts list I believe it. It placed second on the podium in the 2013 Daytona 24, and would serve you quite well at almost any race track. Go chase GT3s with this high powered Cayman.

La toute première Porsche va être mise en vente !

Par Louis Arsonneau

Conçu par Ferdinand Porsche en 1939, le prototype Porsche type 64 sera mis en vente aux enchères lors de la célèbre vente RM Sotheby’s en août 2019 à Pebble Beach. Il s’agit du tout premier exemplaire de l’histoire signé Porsche, d’une extrême rareté : il s’agit de l’unique modèle restant.

 

Après la Volkswagen Coccinelle de l’entre-deux-guerres, l’ingénieur Porsche a souhaité décliner la « voiture du peuple » en une version plus sportive, plus connue sous le nom de Porsche 356. Durant les années de recherche précédant la sortie de la 356, la firme de Stuttgart a élaboré quelques prototypes afin de mettre au point son modèle emblématique. Parmi ces prototypes, la Porsche type 64 de 1939, tout premier modèle badgé Porsche. Cette Porsche a été conçue pour tenter de rendre la silhouette de la Coccinelle plus aérodynamique. La carrosserie est en aluminium et l’auto embarque le flat 4 de la Volkswagen dont la puissance a été rehaussée à environ 32 ch… Mais tout de même 160 km/h de vitesse de pointe ! Seulement trois exemplaires de ce prototype ont été produits, il n’en reste qu’un seul à ce jour…

En effet, seul un modèle a survécu à la guerre et celui-ci a ensuite été restauré par Pinin Farina en 1947.

Cet unique prototype Porsche type 64 sera donc proposé à la vente de Pebble Beach entre le 15 et 17 août prochain. Son prix devrait s’envoler à plusieurs dizaines de millions de dollars… amateurs, préparez vos portefeuilles… !
