Cool eBay find #162

Porsche prices seem to have dropped of late (at least for SCs and 3.2 Carreras), and that means there are some bargains to be had for anyone who is interested in looking. It also seems that plenty of 911 sellers had planned for their car to be a ‘keeper’ but are selling it because of unexpected circumstances. This little SC looks to be in quite tidy condition and well loved, with a nice colour really helping it to look quite special. The pascha seats aren’t to everyone’s taste but they’re a cool period feature and can sometimes benefit from a deep clean to really bring them back to their best. The car’s history folder shows no signs of past engine work though there is invoices for a ‘minor’ gearbox rebuild, so the car is in good driving condition. Its recently been fitted with a new exhaust and upgraded silencer that apparently grumbles nicely with a few pops and bangs when pressed. The owner notes a couple of small points of rust in a couple of areas but nothing too troubling, and the new MOT with no advisories seems to confirm that – with the owner also noting that there seems to be no signs of welding to the underside. The car has a starting bid of £25,000 (reserve not met) and no bids on it either, which almost seems surprising. Maybe someone is in for a bargain…

Auction Spot #55

This spot has no photos on the listing, but it is one that is well worth reading. When I think of ‘Turbo’ I often think ‘Porsche’ quite soon after. This is a 911 Turbo (996) which is presented with incredibly low mileage. Continue reading “Auction Spot #55”

Crazy prices at ACA

I go to a lot of auctions, and I’m not unused to some cars going for extraordinary prices, but today at Anglia Car Auctions was a whole new level. The auction started off with a huge crowd (though not as many cars as usual) but that crowd didn’t last all the way through. Continue reading “Crazy prices at ACA”

Auction Spot #37

Since Porsche reintroduced a proper Targa back into the 911 range the older ones seem to have become all the rage, and I’ll admit I’m happy to join in with that, I think that they are great. Continue reading “Auction Spot #37”

Auction Spot #22

The Porsche 911 Turbo is most certainly an icon in the automotive world, and well known for its capabilities. This 993 Turbo ‘S’ is one of only 26 RHD models built and was first delivered in 1998. Continue reading “Auction Spot #22”

Auction Spot #21

A Porsche SuperSports is a rare car, especially in RHD form, and that is just part of what makes this awesome Targa so cool. The exterior look is brilliant, with a great aesthetic that is quite mean and wouldn’t be quite so good without those wide arches. Continue reading “Auction Spot #21”
