Our Favorite Porsches On Ebay: Volume 117

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 a grab bag of Porsche models from over the years, including track prepped examples, project cars, and tuner models. 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. 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Rauh Welt Widebody For Sale

It’s not often that an RWB widebody car comes up for sale, though as more continue to be built it will gradually become a more frequent event. There are still only a few hundred of these worldwide, so if you’re looking to own one, it’s best to just buy as they become available. This is a very good looking car, and would perhaps work quite well as a track toy or canyon carver. Building on Porsche’s propensity to build racing cars with tacked on widebody kits, this is a believable facsimile to something Porsche could have built in the early 1990s alternative universe. Plus it has a super rare Porsche Design by MOMO steering wheel. I like it, but I sure can’t afford it.

2. 1976 Porsche 912E For Sale

This appears to be a quite clean and original example of a driver-grade 912E. I own a 912E in honestly quite poor condition by comparison, and I will say that I love the driving experience. While you still have the 911 handling prowess that Porsche is known for, the car weighs in total a couple hundred pounds less than a contemporary 911, giving it a quite neutral balance. The 912E is quite low on power compared to a 911, but that simply means you are forced to be more involved in the driving process. You have to wring the car’s neck for all it’s worth. That, to me, is part of the car’s charm. It still needs a bit of work, but if you think that you can enjoy that experience, buy this car.

3. 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo EvoMS GT700 For Sale

This is one wild 996 with a ton of performance upgrades. The listing claims that the upgrades were performed about 25,000 miles ago, and have proven quite reliable. Visually, the car has been fitted with GT2 body components and a Martini-style livery package over the top of the original black paint. The 19″ HRE wheels are a little too big for my tastes, but it’s not difficult to find wheels for a 996 Turbo. Personally, I’d swap them out for a set of 18″ wheels, because they fit the fenders a little better.

4. 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet For Sale

Is there anything better than a nice top-down drive on a summer evening? Sure, a top-down drive on a summer evening in a Porsche 911! The 993 design has always struck me as a bit awkward, but the narrowbody cabriolets really look slick. This silver car with a black interior is quite unassuming, and will make you look fresh as summer fades into autumn. Pick one up now, because the drop-top 911 prices are still reasonable, while coupes have exploded!

5. 1987 Porsche 924S Track Car For Sale

This 924S started life as a mostly unappreciated narrowbody 2.5-liter 944 lesser-than. They’re a bit rare and a whole lot of fun to drive, featuring a lightweight chassis, analog controls, and lots of balance thanks to a transaxle chassis. This particular chassis has been given a light fender flare treatment, a full roll cage, race interior, and most crucially, a 3-liter twin-cam engine from a later 944 S2. I can only imagine how much fun a 924S would be with a big bump in power as that would provide. The 3-liter twin-cam is an incredible engine in the 944 S2, so in a lighter chassis, it must be a riot. This appears to be a quite well assembled car, with very few corners cut. With a good inspection, this could be your next track machine!

Porsche 964 RWB Akiba – 100% Nakai San…

Je ne vais pas vous rejouer le refrain des Porsche 911 revues à la sauce RWB. La recette est désormais classique et bien rodée… même si apparemment, beaucoup ne l’ont pas comprise (Ou du moins, n’ont pas l’air d’être équipés pour !). Car les créations d’Akira Nakai font toujours couler du commentaire… et pourtant ! […]

Watch this Drift-Specific 964 Go Very Sideways

Though it’s not a common sight seeing a Porsche 911 go sideways in such a stylized fashion, this one does look fairly natural doing it.

Tuned by KA-TUN, a Japanese racing outfit, this 964 is meant to slide gracefully at speed. To do so, it sports massive wheel spacers, Bride seats (drifters adore them), the toe and camber settings conducive to oversteer, and a set of blister fenders for both a widened track and the aggressive styling drift machines are known for. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it does turn heads. For those not interested in the looks, the action begins fifty seconds into the clip.

This 964 exudes a bit of that Rauh-Welt Begriff style we’re so familiar with. With the choice add-ons, it’s certainly a vibrant Porsche, and it has the soundtrack to match the exuberant driving. It seems to have it all. However, it is handicapped in one respect.

The pendulum effect inherent in every automobile is quite violent in this rear-engined 911. Noticeably, the way this car breaks and regains traction are quite abrupt. More obviously, transitioning from a leftward slide to a rightward slide, somewhat like a feint but also known as a manji in drifting parlance, is not as graceful nor as progressive as with a car with an engine in front. Therefore, the Porsche requires very delicate steering to keep it from spinning when swinging the rear around.

Snappy and sideways, the KA-TUN 964 is a definite crowd pleaser.

Not to say that competitively drifting a 911 is impossible, it’s just that its weight balance isn’t as suited to producing long, smoky, elegant slides as front-engined cars do. « >Tyler McQuarrie took a modified 993 GT2 to Formula D years ago, but he’s since retired the machine for a Camaro. In any event, enjoy this cerulean blue 964 show how 911s really are the versatile sports car for every occasion—including playing the hooligan.

Autohaus RWB: The Experts on Engine Rebuilding and Customised Porsches in Thailand

A few months ago in Bangkok, I had the opportunity to visit RWB Thailand by Autohaus. Unfortunately, my stay in the city was super short and I didn’t have the time to meet the founder personally. I spent at least 3 hours on the place, enjoyed the perfect combination of the architecture and the unique cars around the building.

RWB (RAUH-Welt Begriff) is a Porsche tuner based in Japan, founded by Akira Nakai, who combines Japanese and Euro tuning elements, creating the distinct RWB style for Porsche chassis. Starting off as a small countryside body-shop in Chiba-Ken, RAUH-Welt 911’s are now a common sight on both the streets and racing circuits of Japan.

Autohaus RWB Thailand was founded by Chin Kanitpong, in 2011. The building was designed by VaSLab in 2011 and the construction was completed in 2012. The project was inspired by the art of body tuning by Nakai-san, while the place is considered one of the best architectural-automotive sights of the country.

Right now, we are capable of building 911s from a ground up, both RWBs and not RWBs projects. Chin Kanitpong, Founder of Autohaus RWB Thailand

What inspired you to start RWB Thailand?

After my first RWB in Thailand, I just wanted to share “the widebody work” from the master, Akira Nakai.

I read on the website that per customer only one RWB can be ordered – Why only make one RWB Porsche per customer? Why not more?

That’s not really true. There are customers who own more than one RWB. However, each one must be built and customised by Nakai-san one at a time.

What differentiates RWB Thailand from the rest of the distributors?

Right now, we are capable of building 911s from a ground up, both RWBs and not RWBs projects. Our chief mechanic is a good engine builder and also has experience with automotive electrical systems. However, we can only focus on one or two cars built at a time, just want to take time on each build to make sure it’s done perfectly.

I saw that you do a lot of restoration as well, is this your primary business over modifying the cars?

No, restoration is not our primary business. I would say engine rebuilding is our main expertise.

What was the first car that you modified in Thailand?

Ten years ago, my mechanic and I started off with building a VW Golf MK1 race car. It has 2.0 16V ITBs coupled Quaife racing transmission.

What modifications you’re capable of making on the Porsches? Is it only exterior, or interior as well?

We can pretty much do a complete car. Bodywork and paint are done by our affiliated shop close by. For the interior, we have upholstery teams to come in and work on the car, all other mechanical and technical are done by our mechanics.

RWB Porsches: It’s just a matter of personal preference

Which are the more memorable cars that you have come across in your years at RWB?

That would be our first 964 engine rebuild. It was for my 964 RWB. Internally, we built it to factory spec but added PMO six throttles kit with Motec engine management system, the car achieved 310 hp and ran flawlessly for years.

 

What car is the most popular among your customers? Is it only 964 Porsches? Or what other cars come in to be modified?

We have worked on all air-cooled models ranging from 912 to 993. An interesting project was a 1967 SWB 911 that only came in as a bare shell. We had to source all the parts to complete the car, that project took us almost 4 years.

Not all Porsches that come to Autohaus are customised into an RWB’s, they also use the traditional way of restoring them, Autohaus handles a regular maintenance and restoration of other brands as well.
