Road-Legal Porsche 935 – Kremer K3 – Offered For Sale

The Porsche 935 needs little introduction if you know your historic race cars. It emerged out of the 1970’s Porsche 911 Turbo. It was prolific, winning 123 of the 370 races it entered. Those wins included outright success at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 1979, 1,000 km of Nurburgring and at Sebring. For all […]

Our Favorite Porsches On Ebay This Week: Volume 126

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 focusing on one of the best handling cars of its time, the venerable Porsche 914. 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. 1972 Porsche 914 For Sale

From the outside, this 914 looks like a nicely prepared mostly-stock example. It’s got a set of later cookie cutter wheels, and the sail panels are missing their traditional vinyl covering. Inside, you’ll really only notice the extra gauges on the center console and a modern stereo head unit. When you open the trunks, however, you’ll notice some modifications beyond the norm. Up front is a big radiator, which requires a cut into the front trunk area. In the rear trunk, a large red distributor sticks up through the firewall. That distributor is attached to a huge Chevrolet V8. The ad claims the car is scary fast, and I believe it. 914s are featherweight flyers with sub-100 horsepower, so if you more than double the output, you’ll easily scare yourself.

2. 1974 Porsche 914 1.8 Nostalgia Special For Sale

Another 914 with cookie cutter style wheels, and I’m starting to think these wheels belong on that chassis. For one thing, it means the car has been converted to five-lug, which is a good sign. This example has had a recent engine rebuild with larger bore pistons and cylinders, and the finicky fuel injection system has been ditched for carburetors. Aside from the paint-matched bumper, I really like the yellow paint and black trim of this 914. It’s a good looking weekend cruiser.

3. 1972 Porsche 914 2.2-liter Hot Rod For Sale

If there is a common thread here with the five cars here, it’s that 914 owners just can’t leave well enough alone. This little white gem looks like a ton of fun with a seriously hot Type 4 motor that has been punched up to 2.2 liters. The seller states the car is estimated to have around 200 horsepower, but without dyno sheets, I’d be quite skeptical of that number. In any case, it’s a good looking car with plenty of power for most needs.

4. 1975 Porsche 914-6 3.2-liter Outlaw For Sale

I’ve never been a fan of the 75 and 76 rubber bumper 914s, but somehow this one really seems to work well. With a set of the Fifteen52 Outlaw 4-lug wheels, and a nice coat of red paint, it looks just right. Like it deserved to be an outlaw all along. This particular car has a huge 3.2-liter engine in the back, built to enough power to kick some serious butt. Of the five cars featured here, this is the one I’d most like to drive home. It appears well built and fast enough to scare the pants off of even the most seasoned drivers.

5. 1974 Porsche 914 Slant Nose Project For Sale

My head says no, but my heart says yes. There is something nostalgic to me about a poorly-finished slant-nose conversion, as these were everywhere in the 80s and 90s. This one has a V8 swap, to boot. It’s probably the least likely to make you any money, but if you finish it up right, you’ll grab eyeballs everywhere you go, and have a ton of fun in the process. You could probably bring something like this to a Radwood and take home a trophy (not that I have any connections or anything…).

Rare Porsche 911 Cabriolets

Porsche isn’t one to miss a good marketing opportunity. Throughout the 54 years of 911 production, in which over a million examples of this iconic sports car have rolled out of Zuffenhausen, the company has bestowed worldwide customers with a whole host of special editions to celebrate anniversaries, milestones and notable racing achievements.

The latest addition is Motorsport’s new 935, a track-only car based mechanically on the 991 GT2 RS but styled on the revered Moby Dick of 1978. More interestingly though, there’s also a new Speedster. However, the fact it’s being built to commemorate 70 years of Porsche isn’t particularly significant, and neither is the numbered production run of just 1,948 examples. No, it’s a special-edition, open-topped Porsche.

Think about it, most special-edition Porsche 911s are Coupes. From the 930 S to the 991 Turbo S Exclusive Edition, via the 993 GT2, 996 Anniversary and 997 Sport Classic, these limited cars, often built on a numbered production run, are tin-top. There appears no specific reason for this: all body styles hail from the same production line at Werk II, and it’s not like an open-topped 911 is unpopular – in fact, widespread endearment to both the Cabriolet and Targa is such that Porsche has kept both models running concurrently since 1983. And while it’s true 911 Coupes will always enjoy a certain cache over their open-topped stablemates, what’s not to like about a special-edition Cabriolet?

To find out we’ve come to Long Beach in southern California to sample two stellar open-topped examples of rare Porsche in the 3.2 Commemorative Cabriolet and 964 America Roadster. Owned by serial Porsche owner and Total 911 subscriber Bruce Brown, these cars are used as they were intended, cruising the boulevards and carving through the inland canyons, roof down, revelling under the year-round Californian sunshine.

The cars arrive at the beach just after us, pulling off the highway and driving onto a slipway down to the Pacific Ocean, the 964’s almost V8-like thrum a striking note against the 3.2 Carrera’s more agricultural resonance. Bruce, in the 3.2, and his friend Simon Birch, piloting the 964, kill the cars and jump out, which gives us a chance to absorb both 911s as they cool off in the brisk sea wind.

First, the Commemorative 3.2. Built to honour 250,000 911s having been built, it’s sometimes referred to as the 25th Anniversary – this at a time before Porsche thought of the 30, 40 and 50 Jahre Anniversary models in the ensuing years. The 3.2 Commemorative Edition was available in either Coupe, Cabriolet or Targa body styles.

991.2 G2 RS Clubsport unveiled

Porsche might have chosen LA to reveal its new 992 series Carrera, but the 991 isn’t going down quietly, having one last hurrah in the form of the GT2 RS Clubsport. A track-only 200 limited-run special, the GT2 RS Clubsport takes the already mighty GT2 RS and strips it for the track, with a single Recaro bucket seat with a six-point harness, instrumentation from the GT3 R racer, an air jack system with three lifts and plumbed in fire extinguisher system. The fuel tank has been enlarged, the Clubsport coming with a 115 litre FT3 safety fuel cell which is filled through the bonnet.

That bonnet, like the engine cover is made of carbon fibre, these fitted in place on the Clubsport with quick release hatches for easy access at track. Above the driver’s seat there’s an escape hatch in the carbon fibre roof, in accordance with FIA regulations. Under that removable engine cover is the same 3.8-litre turbocharged flat-six as the road car, situated on rigid mounts.

Porsche is quoting the power at 700hp, though that’s likely to be conservative, it easier to simply quote the road car’s figure than re-homologate the numbers for the Clubsport. The 100 cell cat and new centre-exiting exhaust is certain to have liberated more power from the already ludicrous output of the GT2 RS.

Visually the Clubsport gains an even more aggressive look, with larger air intakes at the front a larger rear wing situated higher than its road relative and rides on Clubsport specific adjustable suspension with 3-way racing dampers, reinforced tie-rods ball joints throughout. The one-piece lightweight alloy wheels of 10.5J x 18 front and 12.5J x 18 rear wheels feature a single centre-lock nut.

The interior is pure race car, with the single Recaro bucket seat, welded-in cage, a Cosworth ICD with integrated data logger, a lap trigger and Porsche Track Precision Race App and a Sport Chrono Clock. The boost gauge is given a ‘vintage’ finish, while the carbon fibre steering wheel is removable, the centre console featuring an emergency cut off and map switches to adjust the ABS, ESC, TC and switch between different tyre circumferences. Air conditioning is retained in the otherwise stripped interior.

Braking is taken care of by six-piston monobloc racing callipers on the front axle grabbing 390mm diameter steel brake discs, the rear having a four-piston monobloc racing calliper and 380mm discs. Two separate brake circuits feature for the front and rear axles allowing the driver to adjust the brake balance as required.

The 7-speed PDK transmission is retained, it featuring a dual mass flywheel with internal pressurised oil lubrication and a limited-slip differential optimised for racing. Despite the fitment of a cage the Clubsport drops in weight, Porsche quoting a kerbweight of 1,390kg.

Eligible to run at selected race meetings or club motor sport, Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars said: “For the upcoming years, our customers will not only race the GT2 RS Clubsport on track days but also at international motor racing events. We are currently holding very productive talks with the race organiser SRO”.

Just 200 will be built, it likely that if you’ve not already secured an allocation then you’ll not be able to have one, even if you have the €405,000 (before local VAT) Porsche is asking for it. Deliveries start from May 2019, so if you want to win any club races in your current machinery then you’d better get busy before the GT2 RS Clubsport arrives….

Our Favorite Porsches On Ebay This Week: Volume 125

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 focusing on some of the more budget friendly aircooled alternatives. This time we’re feeling the need for speed, so we’ve picked out a few Porsche racing cars that are track (or two track) ready. 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. 1995 Porsche 968 Turbo Ex-Daytona 24 Race Car For Sale

I have a soft spot for Porsche’s front-engine watercooled cars, and this is the absolute pinnacle of that series of Porsche sports cars. The 968 was the ultimate extension of the chassis as a road going vehicle, and then a few of them received turbochargers for racing. This particular car was built at the tail end of the 1990s for a run at the Daytona 24. It’s a privateer racer, but appears to have been seriously well built and looks the absolute business. They claim about 500 horsepower on conservative levels of boost, and with a build like this I wouldn’t doubt those numbers. If you’re looking for a great racer that you couldn’t replicate for five times the asking price, this one is for you.

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

2. 1989 Porsche 944 Turbo Cup For Sale

Slightly less powerful than the 968, but with more of that classic transaxle car look, and more factory-built race car pedigree, is the 944 Turbo Cup. This was built for a customer in Europe to race, and spent much of its career in the BeNeLux region doing endurance and sprint racing at famous race courses. The 944 Turbo Cup was shipped over to participate at Rennsport Reunion, and is now in California ready for you to give it another chapter of racing.

3. 1974 Porsche 911 RSR Brumos Replica For Sale

It doesn’t get much more iconic in the American Porsche scene than a red, white, and blue Brumos livery on an old 911 racer. This is a replica, but built to similar standards as the car Brumos raced at Daytona in the early 1970s. If you want a sorted race car that doesn’t have the provenance and history (so you won’t be as afraid to drive it hard), this is your car. Check it out.

4. 1979 Porsche 911 Safari Rally-Style For Sale

This Porsche 911 SC has been a track racer for decades, but the current owner has decided to trade in the car’s lightweight alloys and racing slicks for a set of rally tires on KPZ-style steel wheels. This beast has been raised up quite a bit, but retains much of the stuff that made it a great track car in order to make it great off road. It’s a strange look, but I have to admit that I love it a lot, and would jump at the opportunity to hoon it off road for a while.

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

5. 1992 Porsche 911 RS Cup Car For Sale

And finally, the holy grail of 964 track performance. This Porsche was built in-period by Andial for a racing series that never came to fruition. It’s claimed to have been driven under 1300 miles since it left the factory, though likely a lot of those miles were on track. If you’re looking for a collectible aircooled that almost nobody else will have, this is a good place to start. With only 25 built, an interesting backstory, and an Andial connection, this is a rare bird that will only continue to be talked about.
