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…

Cool eBay Find #158: Porsche 924 Turbo Project

Front engined Porsches are starting to get the recognition that we all know they deserved, and if you can find one with a ‘Turbo’ badge then you really could be in the money. This find is in pretty poor condition and is a bit strongly priced personally, but it does come with a spare parts car that you could really have some fun with as a second project.

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”

Cool eBay Find #156: 1972 Porsche 911 3.0 RS Homage

This super cool modified Porsche 911 3.0 RS homage has been on my watchlist from the moment it was listed, and I even had a little bid on it when it was much, much cheaper. Continue reading “Cool eBay Find #156: 1972 Porsche 911 3.0 RS Homage”

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”

Internet Find #69

The Porsche 944 Turbo is a favourite of mine, and I’ve posted a couple of them on this page. This one is black with a cream interior, which isn’t my favourite of all colour combinations (Guards Red with a black interior in case you were wondering), but it does look good here, even if the front seats do look a little tired.  Continue reading “Internet Find #69”
