1. 1983 Porsche 928S Manual For Sale

I’m a sucker for the early body style 928s with a wedgier look that speaks more to the 1980s aesthetic. This Rubino beauty with a matching leather interior is spectacular to look at, and with a manual transmission is a joy to drive. Manual 928s are some of the best cars Porsche has ever committed to metal and leather. They’re elegant and comfortable to drive with a dark side when you dip into the throttle pedal. With just 47,915 miles on this car, it looks like an absolute gem. The seller says this car may have had some panels repainted at some point, but it would be a shame to let this one sit anyway. Make your own stone chips. Drive it. Enjoy it.

2. 1980 Porsche 928 5.0-liter Swap Manual For Sale

With a buy-it-now price of just $18,500, this might be the a great 928 for that money. The key is to always buy a nice example with all of the maintenance already completed. This one is interesting, because it received a later 5-liter euro-spec engine from a 928 S4. The stock 4.5-liter V8 made 240 horsepower, while the bigger and later engine made 320 from the factory. That’s an impressive bump, and the work was done by reputable shop 928 International way back in 1996. The seller says all systems are functional and operational, and despite having a later CD player installed, the factory original radio is included in the sale. This is the one I would buy.

3. 1989 Porsche 928 S4 For Sale

Speaking of the 928 S4 engine, here’s one with that engine fitted from the factory. This car in « linen grey » is absolutely gorgeous from the outset. While I’m partial to the early bumper cars, these later and more rounded bumpers look almost modern even today. This one features a 4-speed automatic that Porsche cribbed from Mercedes Benz, and while it’s not quite as fun as the manual, it’s a stout and reliable unit. This would be an excellent addition to any collection with just 37,000 miles on the clock. Not quite collector grade, but a nice low mile example of a comfortable grand tourer.

4. 1989 Porsche 928 S4 Manual For Sale

And if you buy the one above, here is its foil. The black over tan car to complement the tan over black car. And this S4 has a manual transmission versus the automatic, making it the more fun choice of the two. It is not inexpensive, that is for sure, but it’s had a full slew of recent services, which is an absolute must when it comes to 928 purchases. The ad says « New Clutch, Valve Cover Gasket, A/C Charge and Converted to R134A, Intake Gaskets, New Water Pump, Timing Belt and New Tires » which is pretty comprehensive.

5. 1994 Porsche 928 GTS For Sale

The 92-95 Porsche 928 GTS is the top of the heap when it comes to transaxle Porsches. This big comfy autobahn attack car received a 5.4-liter V8 with 345 horsepower and 369 ft-lb of torque. This monster features the 4-speed automatic and a limited slip differential, plus all of the bells and whistles to make it a fun and fast highway hauler. You could sit at triple digit speeds on the highway until the fuel tank runs out, then fill it up and do it all over again. It will provide no groans about that, just stable and comfortable speed. This one looks well cared for inside and out, and with still less than 70,000 miles it’s got plenty of life left. Take care of it, and it will take care of you.

Une Porsche 912 motorisée par un moteur V8 L92 de Cadillac Escalade

Les swaps sont légions de l’autre côté de l’Atlantique, aux États-Unis. Mais monter un moteur V8 LS3 de Chevrolet Corvette dans une Porsche 912 l’est moins. Un gros travail de transformation de la Porsche fut réalisé par son auteur, Karl Gaskins, en installant le moteur en position centrale et en modifiant fortement la 912. Le …

Is Buying a 996 Turbo a Wise Decision?

The fact that Tyler Hoover picked up another 996 after a painful foray into the range speaks to the value of the car. He first grabbed a first-generation 996 with a 3.4-liter M96, which promptly grenaded. He then swapped in a Chevrolet V8—an LS2, to be specific—for $17,000. What was once the cheapest 996 with a manual transmission was turning into a costly and time-consuming project.

To make matters worse, the American motor let go shortly thereafter—at the very same track the previous engine gave up the ghost. Rather than fuss around with another swap, he decided to buy a 996 Turbo. Logical, right?

The car was mint and had only been driven 76,000 miles. Also, with Bilstein lowering springs, a GT2-style clutch, and BBS SR wheels, $36,000 was a steal—especially after considering the prices of 993 and 997 Turbos.

Of course, the Turbo’s Mezger motor is also robust, and the typical 996 IMS-related concerns don’t apply. Combine that added reliability with 4WD and 415 horsepower, and there’s plenty to like about the Turbo. What other supercars can be bought for that sort of money, and driven without fuss, unwanted attention, or kid gloves?

« It’s the best mistake I ever made, » Hoover concludes. Though the looks are divisive, there is plenty to like about the unloved 911—though going for the slightly spiffier Turbo model makes much more sense. It was a logical purchase, after all.

With 420 horsepower and 415 lb-ft, the Mezger makes Hoover grin on every onramp.
