Our Favorite Porsches For Sale This Week: Volume 129

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’re going to try something different by integrating other auto sales outlets into our Porsche search. 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. Low Mile 1997 Porsche 993 C4S For Sale

To portray the importance of this car, simply look to the logo of the website in the upper left corner. This Forest Green metallic 993 C4S with Cashmere interior was the inspiration for the very beginning of this website. Before we were FlatSixes, we were Porsche Purist, and before that 993C4S.com. The speeding 993 C4S logo has been with us since the beginning, both as inspiration for the site, and one of the driving forces behind it. There is hardly a nicer example out there, and certainly none in such a rare shade with so many Porsche Exclusive options. Add this gorgeous machine to your collection, because it deserves to be cared for.

2. Low Mile 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo For Sale

I recently purchased a 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo of my own, but it’s got far more miles than this one. This year car is a strange one-year combination of early and late 944 suspension bits, and thus some pieces are difficult to come by. That said, it’s a handling dream, and the later « oval dash » interior looks surprisingly modern. This one with a Guards Red exterior and Porsche Script seats is not likely to be inexpensive, but it’ll be worth every single penny.

3. CHEAP 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 For Sale

There isn’t much to say about this 996 Carrera 2, except that the price is ludicrously inexpensive. It’s got nearly 200,000 miles on the odometer, the car is wrapped an interesting shade of copper, and the MY02 wheels have been painted black. Aside from that, it looks complete and the interior is clean. This is a Tiptronic model, so don’t expect it to be the most engaging thing ever, but at under 12 grand, you can’t really go wrong. It’s worth more than that in parts.

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

4. 8-Mile 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS For Sale

It isn’t very often you’re presented with the opportunity to unwrap a brand new Porsche, but this GT2 RS is still presented in as-delivered condition. It’s a Chalk GT2 RS Weissach with a red interior and carbon buckets. The sticker on this is $340,000, but the seller is asking a $90,000 premium for you to be the first official owner of this car. Is it worth that to you?

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

5. Low Mile Porsche 996 Turbo For Sale

The 996 Turbo remains one of my favorite Porsches, in large part because of the performance that it offers for such little money. These have seen prices wax and wane, but don’t expect this one to go for stupid cheap. A low mile black car with a 6-speed manual is a rarity, especially with a complete Aerokit intact. This might be the one to have. There’s no telling how high this Porsche will go on Bring A Trailer, but I would be surprised to see it crest $80,000. All things considered, it might be worth that.

Tuned 993 Pushes a 991 GT3 RS Around the ‘Ring

With hundreds of thousands of dollars separating these two track tools, the owner of the lava orange 991 might feel a trifle embarrassed after getting hounded by a 993. However, he shouldn’t feel too badly, because the man in the understated 993—a Mr. Sandro Ziegler—is a virtuoso.

To be fair to the owner of the GT3 RS, this section of the Ringis a busy one, and finding a neat way around the hordes Touristenfahren isn’t simple. With the advantage of traffic, Ziegler and his mildly-fettled 993 C4S aggressively nips at the RS’ heels, and never gives his opponent the chance to make use of their power advantage.

Ziegler’s machine is a stripped track day special, and most of its modifications are concerned with minimizing weight. The removal of carpet and air conditioning are the garden-variety weight reductions made on most track cars, but plexiglass rear and side windows and RS door panels make it clear he’s serious. For a little less mass to move around and some more compliance over the curbs he frequently hops, Ziegler’s added a set of OZ Racing Alleggerita wheels.

The modification list continues with a revalved 3.6 and upgraded cams, but the output is just 270 horsepower. Not a powerhouse by any means, but with only 2,650 pounds to push around, this 993 has what it takes to run just inches behind the ultimate trackday 911.

Six of the best

The room before us is utterly cavernous in its layout. Tall, wide and stretching back almost as far as the eye can see, the vast space is filled with row upon row of pristine Porsche metal, some hidden under soft cloth covers, others fully exposed. Major gangways dictate a sensible path in which to walk and, following it, we soon come to an opening that leads into another room stacked to the ceiling – literally – with yet more Porsche vehicles.

This labyrinth of Zuffenhausen’s finest sports cars is not an elaborate showroom, nor is it the factory floor. For while there are new cars here, they are joined by examples of just about every conceivable production Porsche ever built, along with prototypes, notable racing cars and, better still, some special treasures from the Porsche family.

A veritable automotive sanctuary, the cars sit silently as we walk slowly past each telling column of Porsche history, the dull marching of our footsteps on the concrete floor the only source of noise. The ambient temperature is neither too warm nor too cold, the air noticeably dry; an absence of any moisture in the atmosphere provides the perfect environment for these automotive artefacts to rest peacefully before select public appearances in the Museum and at special events around the world.

We’re in Porsche’s secret warehouse, an off-limits Mecca, home to quite simply the greatest collection of original, canonised Porsche metal anywhere in the world. We’ve been invited to the secret warehouse to meet with representatives of the Porsche Museum, specifically those responsible for bringing you an ever-changing, eclectic presentation of historical Porsche vehicles displayed inside the Delugan Meissl-designed architectural masterpiece on Porscheplatz.

Chief among the Museum clientele with us is Alexander Klein, head of historic car management. A walking encyclopedia of Porsche knowledge, Alexander has worked at Porsche for many years and has a deep affinity with the special cars used to illustrate the company’s story at the museum and beyond. A 996 GT3 owner himself, Alexander kindly accepted our offer to join us in the secret warehouse for a special assignment in celebration of our special 150th issue.

His brief was simple: select six models from the 911’s entire history that best underlines its unprecedented evolution as the world’s most iconic sports car. Here, then, we have your halo half-dozen of elite Neunelfers, with Alexander himself explaining the reasons behind his venerable choices to your editor. There may be a surprise or two in store…

To read our countdown of the top six 911s with the Porsche Museum in full, pick up Total 911 issue 150 in store today. Alternatively, order your copy online for home delivery, or download it straight to your digital device now.

Total 911 Special 150th issue on sale now

Rejoice, Neunelfer devotees: the world’s only magazine dedicated to the Porsche 911 has reached its landmark 150th issue! Such a special ocassion calls for a special assignment of course, which is why we’ve teamed up with the Porsche Museum themselves to bring you our 30 most iconic Porsche 911s of all time. Even better, we were granted exclusive access to the Museum’s secret warehouse, home to the most comprehensive collection of original Porsche production cars and prototypes anywhere on the planet, to bring the top six cars together, exclusively for our cherished readers.

You’ll have to pick up a copy of our collectors’ special 150th issue to see which is the number one choice of both Total 911 and the Museum, but you can be sure there’s a varied selection in the top 30 consisting of GT2s, GT3s, Rennsports, Turbos, Rs, Targas, Cabriolets, Carreras, Ss and Clubsports, all representing crucial developments in the unrivalled story of the fabled Porsche 911.

Away from our mega countdown, we bring you the first drive of the new turbocharged Carrera GTS – well, actually, we bring you two first drives as we pit the 991.2 C4 GTS against the 991.2 C2 GTS to find out which is the best 911 of the new Carrera range. The latest GTS range boasts a 30hp – and 50Nm torque – boost over its Carrera S brethen, which invites us to look at the history of the Porsche Powerkit and the reason behind its creation.

You may not know that one Valentin Schäffer is the godfather of the Porsche Powerkit; in issue 150 we interview Herr schäffer as he recites some of the greatest racing engines he’s ever helped make. Elsewhere in our special issue, we pit the 930 against the 996.2 GT3 (we know, right) and get behind the wheel of the world’s best RSR ‘R7’ replica with the Mary Stuart collar. Oh, and did we mention we’ve got spy pictures of the next-generation Porsche 992?

To read all of this and much, much more, pick up Total 911’s collectors’ special 150th edition in store today. Alternatively, order your copy online for home delivery, or download it straight to your digital device now.
