forward-dated 911 SC: back to the future

The road ahead is deserted, its twisting Tarmac totally bereft of traffic. A thick wall of trees lines the roadside, their density willing us to keep moving our 991 towards the setting sun.

A look in the rear-view mirror reveals much the same story behind us. The highway is empty, save for two hazy yellow lights in the far distance. However, as the minutes tick by, those lights become more prominent. Glancing briefly at the road ahead, my eyes return to the 991’s rear-view mirror, fixated on those yellow lights coming quickly towards us. There’s a red hue visible between them now. A bonnet. A roof. A windscreen. It’s a car.

The rate at which this car is closing in on us is astonishing. It surges up the stretch of road behind us, revealing more detail with each passing second as its features become ever larger in our mirrors. A 964, I think to myself, catching its chunky front PU with integrated side lights. Then, roaring up behind us, the 964 pulls out and shoots past, gliding back in line and charging up the road ahead. Now the confusion sets in: replete with one-piece bumper, full-width rear reflector with clear ‘Porsche’ script, a distinctive tea tray spoiler and wheels with the lip and profile of Cup-spec alloys, the visual cues give this car away as a 964 3.3 Turbo. However, the mechanical howl of that flat six as it shot past certainly wasn’t akin to the noise of a 911 with an exhaust turbocharger bolted on. So, what on earth has just overtaken us on this rural stretch of Swedish asphalt?

Luckily, we don’t have to wait too long to find out. Not 20 minutes later we pull into a gas station and there, sitting by the pumps in front, is our mystery Porsche 911, being fuelled by its joint owner, Andreas. Originally a 1982 SC, the car was converted to a 964-look of sorts before Andreas and co-owner Lennart bought the car, though closer inspection of that one-piece Strosek front PU shows it to be more 944 than 911. We’re also told the rear bumper mimics that of a 3.0 RS. A peek inside reveals the car’s true age, its Pasha interior an obvious giveaway. Not that this car is trying to hide anything: Andreas and Lennart have even left the ‘SC’ lettering on the car’s decklid.

In our contemporary world where backdating a 911 is all the rage, the idea of a forward-dated 911 makes for an odd concept, but one which, in a bygone era, was a popular conversion. Due to the large spectrum of interchangeable parts on air-cooled 911s, many found favour with the idea of swapping a few panels to make an older model look just like one which had only just rolled off the production line at Zuffenhausen. Much like backdating, how convincing the car looked depended largely on how far you were willing to go, or how much you were willing to spend. So what of the car we’ve caught up with?

Andreas tells me he and Lennart bought the car in its current guise, complete with ‘teardrop’ wing mirrors commonly found on later 964s. “We found favour with how different it was compared to other SCs, and especially liked how it drove,” Andreas tells me as he replaces the fuel hose and tightens the 911’s filler cap. So did Andreas and Lennart ever consider converting the car back to standard, or backdating it – as is currently in vogue – to a longhood, pre-impact bumper 911? “No, because a lot of work had gone into converting it to 964 spec. For example, the rear reflector on a 964 sits at a slightly different angle to the G-series cars, so getting this to fit required the previous owner to make some modifications to the rear wings. We believe this is part of the history of the car and shouldn’t be changed,” comes Andreas’ reply.

Our Favorite Porsches On Ebay This Week: Volume 122

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 Porsche’s GT wonder, the 928s of the 1970s, ’80s, and 90s. They’re big and beautiful, and some of them are still quite affordable to purchase, if not maintain. 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. 1982 Porsche 928 Weissach For Sale

This first listing is an wholly anachronistic look at Porsche’s GT machine. This car could not have existed outside of the 1980s, and looks like an absolute blast from the past. With a set of Gotti wheels on this golden boy, this Porsche looks ready to roll to the nearest skating rink for an all-night-skate. With just 58,000 miles on the odometer, this monster is still looking pretty fresh, and allegedly all of the required maintenance was recently completed. On paper, this looks like a nice buy.

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

2. 1987 Porsche 928 S4 For Sale

This is another fairly low-mile 928, this time bearing the late style bumper, which certainly updates the 928’s appearance. This is an automatic-equipped car with the fairly rare factory limited slip differential. I’ve always been partial to the manual 928s, but the Mercedes-built auto is quite serviceable. With a large and comfortable interior, this is the kind of car that you could drive across the country for 800 mile stints in a day, should you choose to do something so foolish.

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

3. 1994 Porsche 928 GTS For Sale

The undisputed king of the 928s is the latest model, the GTS with a 5.4-liter four-cam V8 mega engine from 1994 and 1995. This was the last hoorah of Porsche hand-built construction, and the final model style of the 928’s long life, having ended in 95. The automatic-equipped GTS examples aren’t as desirable as the manually-shifted models, but they don’t command the six-figure prices, either.

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

4. 1988 Porsche 928 S4 For Sale

This 5-liter rounded-bumper S4 is among the lowest mileage 928s on eBay right now with just 26,000 miles racked up. With that kind of low mileage, even the factory leather must look and smell like new. With original correct manhole-cover-style wheels, this car looks particularly good in red, which is all original paint to boot. This is a pretty well kept collector-grade example of what was Porsche’s most expensive standard production model at the time.

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

5. 1982 Porsche 928 For Sale

If you thought that last example was low mile with 26,000, then you’ll marvel at this older example with just 18,000 miles on the clock. An early bumper model with excellent upkeep, this is perhaps my pick of the litter today. Blue is a striking and unusual color for the 928, but it looks tremendous.

The Incredible 70th Anniversary Porsche Atlanta Auction Preview

Later this month, just a few days before Halloween, Porsche and RM Sotheby’s will be serving up some treats during the Porsche 70th Anniversary Auction in Atlanta, Georgia. With 123 lots of Porsche goodies, ranging from original dealership posters and children’s cars to a low mile 924 and a full-blown 959 Dakar racer. No matter what era of the Porsche history you appreciate most, there will be something in store for you to bid on. This is the largest Porsche-only auction I’ve ever seen come to fruition, and it could seriously set the market in the near future. Every car here carries an incredible backstory, and any of them would be welcome additions to a Porsche nut’s garage! Can you imagine any other marque that can put together this kind of collection from their back catalog?

You can bid on these cars yourself through RM’s phone bidding process, or you can get yourself to Atlanta and pick up a paddle. You know you want to.

Lot 162 – 1984 Porsche 944 – Pre-Auction Estimate: $35,000 – 45,000

Porsche’s 944, when it was new, was the perfect college professor car. You likely had a college professor with a slightly quirky car that nobody else in your town had. They were never top-of-the-line models, but they’re usually good handling imported sports coupes. I think of Datsun 240Zs, Saab 99s, BMW 2002s, and any transaxle Porsche as being the ideal professor car. Especially in the 70s and 80s, professors made decent money, but not enough that they could jump on a new 911 or better. They are also intellectuals and could not justify dropping that kind of money on a car anyway. It’s premium, but not premium enough to be a turn off.

JoAnn Stark purchased this gorgeous 944 when she was hired to her dream job in the English Department at Northwestern University. From 1984 through 1999, Ms. Stark drove the car just 10,262 miles before moving to Seattle. They retained the 944 as a fair weather driver when they came back to Illinois, and the car was professionally maintained, even while they were not in town. I’ve never seen a set of color-matched Cookie Cutter wheels, but they work incredibly well on this car. This car is the gold-standard of early 944s, and look for it to fetch a nice premium.

Lot 173 – 1958 Porsche 356A 1600 Super Speedster Barn Find – Pre-Auction Estimate: $125,000 – 150,000

The words « Barn » and « Find » when put together are the equivalent of printing money in today’s car collecting world. The buyer isn’t buying a car, they’re buying a story. They’re making sure their collectible car is more of a conversation piece. This Speedster’s story isn’t all that exciting, if I’m honest, but I’m sure it’ll still fetch a premium. The car was originally imported through Max Hoffman’s distributor in New York. The early history of the car is a bit foggy, but it is believed to have spent that time in Texas. It racked up 70,000 miles through 1984 when it was purchased by the current owner who intended to restore the car. Somehow, even in Texas, the 356 developed rot in the floorpans, trunk, and battery box. The owner had intended to restore the car, and stripped it of its paint before clapping his hands together and walking away for 35 years. Allegedly the 1600 Super engine does run, but the brakes are not mechanically sound enough to drive the car.

Is that story worth a premium to you? Personally, I’d rather spend that kind of cash on a Speedster with twice as many miles, and more patina in the original paint to tell its own story. But, regardless of my feelings, this will surely sell for well more than a nice example that doesn’t need a full restoration.

Lot 178 – 1980 Porsche 935 Kremer K4 – Pre-Auction Estimate: $850,000 – 1,100,000

It doesn’t get much more Group 5 exciting than an original Kremer K4 as-raced by Ted Field and Danny ‘On-The-Gas’ Ongais. While Porsche had left 935 racing to non-factory teams at the tail end of the 1970s, they exploited a few rules to create the iconic 935-78 Moby Dick. The Group 5 rules essentially only covered the bodywork between the front and rear bulkheads. In order to retain the group appropriate bodywork, they had to have the roof, rear window profile, front and rear firewalls, and doors. That’s pretty much it. So the Moby Dick kicked off a series of wilder and wilder builds. Porsche wouldn’t sell the Moby Dick to privateers, so they build their own. Kremer’s answer to that concept was the K4. A much wilder version of their K3 that had won Le Mans overall in 1979.

The car raced with Interscope in IMSA’s GTX category for a couple of years to varying success before it was sold to Vasek Polak, who stored it for several years in California. In 1997 it was restored by Gunnar Racing and returned to racing in vintage categories. Then, Ted Field’s nephew, Marshall Field purchased the car and gave it a no-expense-spared update to modern standards. The chassis was stiffened with bonded-in honeycomb aluminum, a brand new twin-turbo 935 powerplant, new Penske shocks, and a Motec dash/telemetry system were installed. At that time, the car was returned to Interscope livery, and the GT1-style mirrors, and an aluminum splitter were added for aero efficiency. The current owner purchased the car in 2003.

The car has been out of commission for long enough that the buyer should definitely get the mechanicals rebuilt again, but this could be an incredible car for vintage racing. Possibly the most modern and wildly-built Kremer 935s in the world.

Lot 196 – 1985 Porsche 959 Paris-Dakar – Pre-Auction Estimate: $3,000,000 – 3,400,000

The Dakar-entered 959 is one of only three cars built in 1985. These examples were built with a naturally aspirated Carrera 3.2 engine for simplicity and longevity in the desert racing venue, plus an advanced all-wheel-drive system, a high rise suspension, and 959 body panels. Chassis no. 010015 was driven in the 1985 Paris-Dakar as #186 by René Metge and Dominique Lemoyne. Metge won the Paris-Dakar in 1981, ’84, and ’86. Unfortunately, while aboard this car, he was forced to retire early with an oil line failure. 1985 was not a good year for Porsche, as the other two 959s entered suffered accidents. While the car didn’t actually finish the Dakar journey, it provided much-needed development for the 1986 running of the event, where Porsche placed 1-2-6 overall. Since retiring from competition, it has been shown at many vintage events, including Goodwood and The Quail, as owned by Jacky Ickx.

OUR FAVORITE PORSCHES ON EBAY THIS WEEK: VOLUME 121

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 something a little different, non-car Porsche ephemera. Here are a few rare pieces of Porsche literature and parts that exist, but are rare enough that they command huge prices. 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. Porsche 964 Turbo Cup I Wheel Set (7.5×17 & 9×17) For Sale

This is an awesome set of seriously period-correct wheels that would look good on a lot of Porsche applications. There is something about a white set of wheels, especially with a huge rear section width, that absolutely has me floored. This set of wheels on a widebody 964, especially in Red, would be the absolute business. They’ll also fit several 928s, possibly late 944s, and 968s, or toss them on a 993. If done right, an early 986 Boxster could look great on these as well. They’re relatively light for a factory 17″ wheel, at 22.1 pounds for a front and 26.4 pounds for a rear. If you need a nice set of factory five spokers, this is a pretty cool wheel. They aren’t cheap, though, at $5500 for the set.

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

2. 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7L Dealership Brochure (Italian) For Sale

Even if you can’t read the language it’s printed in, basically any factory marketing materials are exploding in value these days. That goes doubly so for anything from the early 1970s, and perhaps triple for anything related to a Carrera RS. The 73 RS is the holy grail of Porsche collecting, and these factory advertising brochures go for thousands of dollars, no matter the language. If you have an RS in your garage, this is a must-have piece, right? Check it out.

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

3. Hella 139 Fog Light Set New Old Stock For Early Porsche 911 For Sale

A nice set of original yellow Hella 139s is a rare find. With the original Porsche Factory tags on these items, it appears to be the real deal OEM NOS parts. These would have been factory fitment on long-wheelbase long-hood 911s and 912s from 1969 to 1973, fitted under the bumper. Brand new pieces are available from Hella with a clear lens at over $450 per side, making this set at $750 a discounted rate, eh?

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

4. Porsche RS60 Spyder Parts Manual For Sale

Just like the Carrera RS literature, anything involving Porsche 4-Cam racers of the late 1950s and early 1960s is also exploding in value. They simply aren’t making stuff like this anymore, and if you have one of these multi-million dollar machines, you probably want to have this book around to help you (or your mechanic) figure certain parts out. The book appears to be largely intact, and it looks like it has been used by one mechanic or another at some point (likely in-period), which adds some provenance to me, but might subtract value to certain collectors. Very cool piece.

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

5. Porsche 968 Sport Suspension Optional Cup II Wheels (7.5×16 & 9×16) For Sale

Another set of wheels, this time Cup II style, are available for 80s and 90s fitments. This set in 16″ sizes would be perfect for something like a 944 Turbo or a 968. Having been fitted to a 968 with the M030 sport suspension option from the factory, it’d be a good upgrade to any standard 968, for certain. I’ve been on a wheel buying spree lately, because they make all the difference in the world when you’re trying to make your car look cooler. Just as the clothes make the man, the wheels make the car.

1. 1984 Porsche 928S For Sale

Porsche’s 928 is something of an oddball in the lineup and history of the brand. Everyone reading this likely knows that the 928 was intended to replace the 911 as Porsche’s iconic headliner. The company was all-in on the Transaxle bandwagon, and the 928 was an incredible GT cruiser for high speed Autobahn runs. It’s among the best cars of its era for long haul cruising, combining a big loping V8 with the comfort of a hip-hugging leather lounger. This particular example looks about as clean as they come, and with just over 40,000 miles on the odometer, it likely drives like brand new.

2. 1983 Porsche 944 For Sale

As has been brought up many times in this column, my first Porsche was a 1983 944. It was an incredible machine, and I miss it to this day. The balance and finesse that can be applied with a car like this one is unparalleled. The 1983 models were the only examples with a manual steering rack and a manually operated sunroof, making them seriously desirable by back road bombers like myself. They’re simple and light weight, which makes them the perfect analog car. This 944 is the antithesis of a new car, which could be just the spice you’re looking for. The photos in this ad are not great, but the car allegedly only has 67,000 miles, making it a pretty good example, though they don’t mention anything about a timing belt service, so you should factor that into the price as well.

3. 1981 Porsche 924 Turbo For Sale

The 924 Turbo is a rare bird these days, as they have been devalued low enough to make them not really worth caring for unless you love them. They featured an incredible lightweight and aerodynamic body mated to an uninspiring engine and gearbox, so they’re not exactly the first choice when you’re looking for a Porsche. The Turbo is also a bit more complex than the naturally aspirated examples, leading many to die at the hands of bad mechanics or owners lacking the funds. This one has only 75,000 miles racked up, and it looks to be in pretty nice shape. Get one while you still can, because these will be the next Porsche to go up in value.

4. 1991 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet For Sale

With 944s finally getting their due, this S2 Cabriolet might be one of the best ways to get your 944 fix. It’s a rare and funky way to get some open air Porsche driving. They were built to some strange standards as the floor structure is reinforced with a second floor pan welded on top of the first one. There is still plenty of era-correct cowl shake, but the near 50/50 weight balance and proper neutral handling certainly helps provide a proper sports car experience. They say everything works, and it looks like it’s in good nick.

5. 1994 Porsche 968 Cabriolet For Sale

 

Everything that the 944 S2 Cabriolet does well, the 968 Cabriolet does just a little bit better. The differences are more than skin deep, but that slightly rounded skin looks mighty fine, too! This red car has just 60,000 miles on the clock, and appears ready to rock.
