Return To Rennsport With 9:11 Magazine

It’s difficult to tell a compelling story in just a few minutes, but Porsche manages to make that happen with every new issue of the video magazine 9:11. It’s always limited to nine minutes and eleven seconds, making the stories hot and fast. This episode focuses in on Rennsport Reunion, and it is an incredibly awesome series of vignettes. If you’re looking for a good way to spend your next ten minutes, click the play button and get ready for a good time.

The series of videos opens with a retro-look at Rod Emory and his shop as they prepare for Rod’s return to racing at Rennsport Reunion VI. Rod was racing professionally as recently as ten years ago, but has kept focus on building cars for his clients since then. It’s been an interesting experience for him to get back behind the wheel racing in anger. Two cars in one weekend that could not be any different, Rod drives a four-cylinder Elva and a big-turbo 935.

Speaking of 935s, Porsche unveiled a new one, as I’m sure you know. The new GT2 RS-based track monster is ready for battle, and made its surprise debut at Rennsport Reunion. In this video Porsche is eager to show off its curves and the language behind its design in gorgeous snippets.

The most interesting segment, to me, involves Walter Rohrl and a 911 SC rally car. First used in-period for the San Remo event, Walter busted a drive axle and didn’t finish. Porsche restored the car after sitting stagnant for decades, and returned Walter to vintage rally with the SC. Where it busted a drive axle. History repeats itself.

Watch, and enjoy.

We’ve been compiling some amazing Porsche models on eBay for three years now, and we’ve seen some pretty astonishing examples pop up now and again. This week we’re focusing on some of the more budget friendly aircooled alternatives. With winter upon us, it’s time to hook yourself up with a new project car and spend some cold nights under a Porsche. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed our curated look at the Porsche market. Keep in mind, some of these Porsches could be great collection investments, while others might prove to do more financial harm than good.

INTERESTED IN HAVING YOUR PORSCHE FEATURED HERE?

Every other week, we feature 5 of our favorite Porsches on eBay. That post is sent out to our mailing list of more than 17,000 Porsche owners and fans and is seen by 10s of thousands of other readers who visit our site directly. If you’re selling a Porsche on eBay and would like to see it featured here, just shoot us an email with the details and we’ll be back in touch. Otherwise, feel free to check out all the other eBay listings we have on our Porsches for sale pages.

1. 1976 Porsche 911S For Sale

I’m not normally one to advise people to purchase mid-year narrow-body 911s, but when they’re painted in beautiful and rare colors and are decently priced it’s hard to disagree that they have their place in the enthusiast community. I love ice green metallic paint, and this car has clearly had a lot of work done to keep it looking and running nice. The engine has been rebuilt recently, which assuages any worries about head stud issues. The exhaust has been replaced with a stainless steel heat exchanger system, which deletes the thermal reactor problems these cars suffered from as new. And it’s got a heavy duty oil cooler for good measure. It’s been converted to carburetors, however, which means it’s not going to pass an emissions check any time soon. And if I bought this, those Boxster wheels would be the first things to go. A good set of cookie cutters would be choice.

2. 1968 Porsche 912 For Sale

Oh boy, where do we start with this one. If you’re confident in your abilities to do bodywork, this could be a great project car for you. This 912 has allegedly received an engine rebuild and the transmission was checked internally in recent service receipts. That bodes well for the mechanical condition of this car. But that 80s-tastic widebody, quarter panel vents, and rocker covers just all have to be chucked in the trash. Find a nice correct decklid, redo the chrome on the sugar scoop headlight surrounds, and replace the fender flares with correct narrow bodywork and you’re golden. Luckily the interior appears to be pretty nice, too.

With a stated reserve price of $20,000, this 912 will need probably at least another ten to fifteen in body work. Is it worth that when it’s done? Maybe.

3. 1975 Porsche 914 For Sale

This 914 is a bit rough around the edges, and certainly needs some help to get back to good again, but if you’re willing to put in the elbow grease, it’ll reward you with awesome handling. This car is stated to have a bit of rust in the trunk, which means it has a bit of rust in other places, too. The engine is said to run, but the seller has not made any attempt to drive the car. With luck, you could perhaps drive the car home after a quick once-over. If you have access to a welder and a heaping helping of patience, this charcoal briquette could one day be polished into a diamond. Luckily, its cheap.

4. 1991 Porsche 911 Cabriolet For Sale

Unlike the others listed thus far, this 911 Cabriolet doesn’t appear to need much of anything. It’s also priced accordingly. 964s have exploded in value lately, and don’t show any signs of stopping. This tiptronic Cabriolet might be one of the last examples under the $40,000 threshold however. If you are looking for a project, you could easily source a manual transmission and perform the swap yourself. It’s a great platform for enthusiasts and weekend warriors, but that tiptronic is definitely not worth dealing with.

5. 1969 Porsche 912 Outlaw For Sale

This 912 has already had all of the heavy lifting done. With a 2.4-liter swap, this is probably the easiest and least expensive way to experience long-nose 911 driving pleasure. The work appears to be well done, and the parts used are certainly quality, in addition to being aesthetically pleasing. This is a simple and well done outlaw that could be your new canyon carving masterpiece. It’s a very interesting piece of aircooled that will instantly earn you a lot of street cred with the Luftgekuhlt clan for a good bit less than most of them have paid in recent years.
