We’ve been compiling some amazing Porsche models on the internet for a few years now, and we’ve seen some pretty astonishing examples pop up now and again. This week we’re looking at Porsche models from the 80s and 90s, because we’re just getting back from Radwood Austin. 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 for sale. 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. Makellos’ 1978 Porsche Safari 911 SC For Sale

I saw this car in person during the Momo Road To Rennsport rally, and it was impressive to watch it being put through its paces. Whether dirt or paved, the 911 seemed to be able to handle anything you threw at it. I have not driven this particular Safari 911, but some of the others I’ve been in have driven quite well, and are well worthy of inclusion in Porsche history. This is a recent trend, but the usefulness of a higher ride height and aggressive tires is never lost on those who know.

From the ad:

Work included custom-fabricating rear strut mounts and a roll cage, as well as front and rear brush guards with aluminum skid plates. The suspension was fitted with KW Clubsport coilovers and 935 components, and PAGID Racing brake pads were also installed along with fifteen52 wheels and all-terrain tires. Power comes from a 3.0-liter flat-six equipped with 964-grind cams, and the 915 transaxle was fitted with with shorter 2nd-4th gears and a Wavetrac limited-slip differential. The interior was refurbished with new Recaro seats, PRP harnesses, door panels, and carpets. Additional lighting, a fiberglass rear deck lid with ducktail spoiler, and a roof rack were also fitted, and a white livery was applied over the Guards Red paint. The car has been driven approximately 2,500 miles since the work was completed, and it is now being offered in California with records and photos from the build process, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and a clean Virginia title.

If you’re looking for a unique Porsche driving experience, this one will treat you well.

2. Mario Andretti’s 1985 Porsche 911 Turbo Kremer K2 Street For Sale

Inspired by iconic Kremer racing cars of the era, the German Porsche tuner worked with its fiberglass supplier DP Motorsport to build a series of street cars with a similar aggressive look. These slant nose cars are held in high regard, both because they were built by an extremely reputable shop, but also because they made crazy levels of power, and looked just crazy enough to match. If you’re looking for a rad-era Porsche, it doesn’t get much more rad than this.

According to the listing, this car was originally ordered by motorsport legend Mario Andretti. That just adds a bit more cachet to the listing, and adds another talking point to your conversation starter.

From the ad:

This car started life as a 930 turbo and was first sent to the Kremer brothers for performance upgrades like group B cams,custom k27 turbo and custom made Dp intercooler  then to DP for fitment of lightweight body panels consisting of a slant nose front end with lower oil cooler scoop, brake scoops, horizontal shaped driving lights,shaved front fenders with air extraction vents.
 
Further adjustments were made resulting in extensively widened rear fenders with inter-cooler air inlets clad with horizontal strakes, flush fitting side mirrors, extended rocker panel sills, resculpted lower rear valence and large rear tray spoiler. The Contact patch was also increased to harness the 500 HP emanating from the Kremer engine with ultra wide BBS modular wheels mounted on low aspect ratio tires. Upon Completion this car was imported into the unites states in March of 85.

3. 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 2S For Sale

The 993 C2S is the rarest example of regular series 993 built, with fewer examples even than the iconic and expensive Turbo S. If you’re looking for a fun example of the smooth 90s shape, this is a good place to start. The twin-split rear engine grille is a great look, and of course the rear-drive layout gives you more steering feel versus the four driven wheels of a C4S or a Turbo. If you’re in the market for a 993, this might be the one to look into. And prices are just now starting to level back to sanity. This one seems to be well priced.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on eBay.

4. 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 For Sale

Where the 993 market seems to be settling down a bit, the 964 market is still going gangbusters. This example is a gorgeous low-mile lightly modified Grand Prix White C2. These are so great to drive, and because the economy was in the tank when they were made, are quite rare to come by. 964s are starting to get their due, or perhaps even a little more. This is the best shape 911 in my opinion, and drives more like a modern car than a Carrera 3.2 does. If you want one to take for canyon rips, this might be the one for you.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on Bring A Trailer.

5. Maritime Blue 1991 Porsche 964 Turbo For Sale

If 964 Carrera 2s are commanding crazy money, then the 964 Turbo market has gone bonkers. This particular example is revered largely for its very rare and very beautiful Maritime Blue paintwork. This example is still under 50,000 miles, and has recently had a full mechanical refresh. New suspension components, a clutch and flywheel, and a top-end engine rebuild to remedy the common head stud breakage issues. Based on the description in the ad, this car is ready for prime time. If you can afford it, I highly recommend buying this one.

Richard Attwood drives a 964 3.8 R restomod

road car. A race car. An engineer’s car. The 911, more than any other car, is a product of continual automotive evolution. Porsche’s enhancements have kept it relevant for the road, competitive on the track and have cemented its reputation as the enthusiast’s car of choice. That evolution isn’t just limited to Porsche itself; an entire industry out there takes 911s backwards and forwards in time, improving, re-imagining, personalising. The 911 is an eminently adaptable basis upon which owners can build the car they want from it.

With this 964, that’s exactly what RPM Technik has done for its owner Ian Humphris. The idea was for a fast road car that could be track driven, adding contemporary performance while being respectful to the classic feel and engagement a 964 brings. Using a Carrera 2 as its basis, the build process has been meticulous, seeking improvements in every area, this now a 964 that can run with its more recent GT department relations, yet offers a driving bandwidth that enables it to be enjoyed on the road, too.

Of all the many branches of 911 evolution and sub-species, this visceral, exciting 964 arguably represents the most appealing opportunity for perfecting and personalising, taking a tired Carrera and reviving it as a car that can be enjoyed. Its performance absolutely eclipses a 964 RS that you’d be too scared to drive. What RPM and Humphris have created is the perfect riposte to a zeitgeist where vehicular value takes president over the value of driving itself.

PART ONE: ON TRACK

It’s a sunny day at Bedford Autodrome, our track time exclusively reserved for RPM Technik’s 964 3.8. Owner Humphris likes his cars too: there’s a 997 GT3 RS in his garage, alongside some other special machinery, but it’s the 964 he’s animated about.

It’s obviously not standard, but to the uninformed could just be a neat, small, red Porsche 911. Its lowered stance could be missed, its split-rim BBS alloys less so. Humphris admits that they’re his road wheels, having a set of Cup 17-inch wheels with some cut slicks for serious track work. There are subtle hints to its revisions visually then, the black-rimmed headlight surrounds an RSR nod, the small lip splitter a neat addition under the front bumper.

There’s no surprises seeing the brake intakes on the front bumper, though they’re framed by darker indicator lenses. These, like those headlight surrounds, contrast perfectly with the red bodywork. Around the back the build follows the same understated enhancement route, this 964 retaining a single exhaust pipe, though the engine cover suggests that single pipe is attached to something a little bit different from the norm. The sticker, not badge, says 3.8 R, a model that’s entirely of its owner’s making, and justifiably so. Specification or naming purists be damned, this is a car that defines purity, a car built for an individual, with their – and only their – ambition and goals for it driving the entire project.

Inside the world’s best Porsche collection

It’s just after midday and we find ourselves waiting outside a plain, nondescript building, its featureless, external monotony a brilliant contrast to the magic of what resides inside. That’s because within these walls you’ll find what is very likely the most astonishing, most unbelievable Porsche collection on the planet which, until very recently, has been kept a complete secret to everybody. You should prepare to be amazed.

It’s a complicated process to get inside the building but, after sharing introductions with the rather secretive owner, we’re lead inside. Greeted by a maze of stairways and corridors at first, our eyes take a little time to adjust to the bleached-out haze of white floors, walls and ceilings, illuminated by brilliantly white lights. The connotations here are almost surgical – for a minute you’d forgive us for thinking we’re about to take a look around a top-secret new hospital that’s soon to open.

Eventually we reach a wide set of windowless double doors, bright light from the other side visible through a minute gap where they meet. Pulling on each handle, the owner swings the doors open and steps back, imploring the three of us in our party to venture inside.

Staggering into the room, three sets of jaws hit the floor as our brains attempt to compute the information we think our eyes are relaying. There are no less than 54 Porsche sports cars impeccably laid out in this huge room which, like the corridors leading to it, is a complete whitewash from floor to ceiling. The cars within this hall, rather predictably, are all finished in varying shades of factory ‘weiß’. Welcome to The White Collection.

What started with a single Matchbox 911 Turbo has grown into what is the most awe-inspiring stockpiling of Porsche on the planet. It’s not just because of the unique colour either. The cars in this room are, almost exclusively, extremely rare and collectible models, and all boast low mileages. Don’t let the colourless hues fool you: each Porsche is extensively, bountifully specced, with most of the modern cars simply dripping in bespoke CXX options – but we’ll come to that later.

The collection is vast and immaculately presented. Walking towards the middle of the room, a row of 911 GT2s from 993 right up to 997 RS sit to our left – the 991 is in transit – all organised in chronological order. To our right there’s a row of air-cooled Porsche Rennsports ordered from first to last, including both M471 Lightweight and M472 Touring versions of the original 2.7 Carrera RS. The water-cooled Rennsports line up opposite, with the holy trinity of Porsche supercars in the 959, Carrera GT and 918 presented, in white, in the middle.

Flanking each end of the Rennsport displays you’ll find an extensive Turbo and Turbo S line-up, plus a long line of rare flatbacks which culminates in a 991 R. There’s a row of Cabriolets in the distance, plus every Porsche Speedster, and some choice Targas. All are meticulously placed in stringently straight lines.

Back to that white Matchbox Turbo. “I was given the car when I was a child and was mesmerised by its flowing lines, and so I cherished it. More than a car, I found art in its design. It continued to inspire me as I grew up,” says the Collection’s bashful owner, who wishes to remain anonymous. His first Porsche was a 993, though not in white. They came later, amassed over a period of years, though there’s an admission that “the collecting only became quite aggressive in the last six years or so. The aim, as you can see, was to have one of everything, in white, in the lowest mileage possible.”

Boasting what is likely the best independent Porsche collection in the world, the owner of The White Collection might also be one of the Exclusive Department’s best contemporary customers. The 918 has north of $100,000 in CXX options, and the R, GT3 RS and GTS Targa aren’t far behind. The total amount of CXX options in the room could be near to $1 million. Even cars such as the 991 Turbo S Exclusive Edition, which came with bespoke Gold metallic paint, was optioned in Carrera White Metallic and, popping the front bonnet, the entire boot is lined in luxury leather with contrast gold stitching, courtesy of the Exclusive Department.

Most 991 interiors are resplendent in CXX Yachting blue leather with white contrast stitching and seat piping, this specification a clear favourite of the meticulous owner. The inspiration for this lies on the far side of the room, among the flank of flatbacks, where a 3.2 Carrera resides with a factory Yachting Blue interior. “I just fell in love with the colour combination when I bought that particular car,” the owner says. “It works so well and complements the white exterior, so from that moment on I decided all the new cars should be finished this way.” That 3.2 Carrera’s legacy now includes a 991 R, 991 GT3 RS and 918, all with Yachting Blue interiors.

For the full exposé on The White Collection, pick up your copy of Total 911 issue 175 in shops now, or get it delivered to your door. Can can also enjoy a special bonus gallery of the Collection via our digital editions for both Apple and Android

Our Favorite Porsches On Ebay This Week: Volume 128

We’ve been compiling some amazing Porsche models on eBay for a few years now, and we’ve seen some pretty astonishing examples pop up now and again. This week we don’t really have any focus. 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.

1. 2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder For Sale

The 981 Boxster Spyder is a 3.8-liter monster of a road car. In fact, it may well be the best road-going car I’ve ever had the pleasure of driving. The convertible top is fiddly, but the ride is comfortable and compliant, the power is immense yet tractable, and the steering is sublime. These have held their value quite well, but this one has over 40,000 miles on the odometer and has dipped under the 80,000 dollar mark. If you’re looking for a driver grade experience, this is an excellent place to start.

2. 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 For Sale

Tahoe Blue is one of the most beautiful colors in Porsche’s color palette. It’s a damn shame that it is such a rare shade, because I’d love to see more of these. The 964’s body shape is simple and easy on the eyes, and makes for a great canvas for this color. If you’re in the market for a nice 964, grab this one up before it gets Singer-ized or RWB’d.

3. 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo For Sale

Another excellent shade of paint, this 997 Turbo is said to be one-of-one in Zanzibar Red, and the price reflects that. The 997 Turbo is an excellent car, and deserves to be taken out as often as possible. This is a ridiculously fast car that is still comfortable enough to be driven on a daily basis. Though this one has retained a 6-figure price tag more than a decade after it was built, it might just be worth every penny.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on eBay.

4. 1974 Porsche 911S For Sale

While Porsche moved to impact bumpers and poorly planned emissions controls in 1974, this car’s color might make up for it not being quite as good as a 1973 long-hood. With only 55,000 miles on the odometer, this Ice Green Metallic beauty looks almost like brand new. The tan interior is an incredible match to the exterior paint color as well. This narrow-body is really growing on me.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on eBay.

5. 2011 Porsche Boxster Spyder For Sale

The 987 Boxster Spyder isn’t quite as refined nor as fast as the 981 version, but they’re hovering in the 60,000 dollar range, so they are a good bit less expensive, and still an absolute riot to drive on the street. While these only had a modest increase in power, the lightweight wheels and top and suspension tuning contribute to an incredible driving experience. This particular example is a PDK equipped model, and while I’d personally prefer the 6-speed manual option, it’s still quite good. If you want a nice driver or collectible piece, look into these before they all disappear.

Magnus Walker’s latest Outlaw Porsche: reverential 964

It’s been some year for the Porsche brand. Not only have we seen a plethora of exhilarating new releases including the 991.2 GT3 RS and all-new 992, we’ve also been treated to glorious revivals of traditional models including the 911 Speedster and legendary Moby Dick. Hell, we even witnessed an air-cooled 993 Turbo roll right off the production line all over again!

It’s certainly no coincidence that these special cars are proving strong on the nostalgia front: 2018 has marked 70 years of Porsche, and Zuffenhausen has been keen to celebrate the milestone with its customers. We too wanted to pay homage to Porsche’s special 70th year of existence as, simply put, without the sustained presence of Zuffenhausen there’d be no car in your garage, and no magazine in front of you right now. We wouldn’t even have a job!

To do that though, we needed to look outside of Werk II, because although the 911s mentioned above all have one or two key design elements evoking the company’s rich history, we wanted to find a car – a single car – which best offers a design paying the ultimate homage to Porsche’s entire lifespan, from 1948 right through to today.

We soon found the perfect 911. Residing in Downtown Los Angeles, this special 964 became a passion project to deliver something truly unique, the heritage behind its modifications timely, the finished article truly timeless. The owner? One Magnus Walker.

You’ll already know the Urban Outlaw is no stranger to Total 911’s pages, having been a former ‘Living the Legend’ columnist and guest editor of our own 100th special issue. Magnus’ modified cars have garnered a keen worldwide following for their streetable, sports purpose style, and by his own admission, this 964 build is his most comprehensive yet.

“As you know, my goal is to have one of every Porsche model, including every generation of 911” Magnus says as he pulls open the sliding door to his sprawling garage in DTLA, the morning sunshine illuminating the dozen or so cars currently sitting in his collection. “I’d already built short wheelbase cars like my 67 SRT, long wheelbase cars like ‘277’ [originally a ’71T], the ’78 SC which was my first G-series build, so the 964 was a natural progression of what comes next. It wasn’t like I was looking for one, but it came at the right time and at the right price.”

Magnus acquired the 1990 964 Carrera 2 back in 2015 from a friend who’d scored a stash of cars from up north. Previously it had been used as a track day car by a hobbyist racer and gone off the circuit backwards, so it was at best a basket case when it finally rocked up with Magnus in DTLA.
