Porsche: Classic and performance range review

Porsche: Classic and performance range review Classic and Performance Car
Porsche badge Porsche 911 SC Front-engined Porsches Porsche 996 GT3 Porsche 959
There are few car manufacturers in existence today which can claim to match the illustrious status of Porsche. Admired for perfecting engineering concepts which others couldn't, and respected as one of the most dominant brands in motorsport, the Stuttgart-based marque have produced a string of wonderfully capable machinery for both road and track.
Founded by Ferdinand Porsche, the company which bears his name originally operated as an automotive consultancy firm, most famously commissioned to design the Volkswagen Beetle. Post-World War 2, Ferdinand's son Ferry steered the firm towards creating cars of its own. The culmination of his work was the 356, which became the first car Porsche sold to the public.
It was Porsche's persistence with the 356's (and indeed, the Beetle’s before it) horizontally-opposed, rear-mounted and air-cooled engines which has resulted in what is now considered one of the most successful and iconic performance cars of all time: the 911.
Buying a classic Porsche
Today, the significance of the 356 to Porsche's history is reflected in values. Coupes and Roadsters cost upwards of £60,000, but the most desirable Speedsters, introduced in 1954, command prices beyond £350,000. 
One year before the Speedster's debut came the 550 Spyder. The stunningly beautiful road-legal racer is one of the most valuable Porsches of all, with a 1955 example selling at auction for €2.74million in early 2016. Its successor, the equally stunning (and even more successful results-wise) 718 achieves similarly incredible values.
The Porsche 911, however, is the model which truly cemented the company's place among the automotive elite. The most valuable among collectors is the Carrera 2.7 RS. Produced to satisfy Group 5 homologation rules in 1972, two variants, a refined Touring spec and the stripped-out Lightweight, were sold to the public. Both achieve prices of comfortably beyond £500,000 today, with the rarer Lightweight edging very close to seven figures. Special examples of both the 964 and 993 also sell for as much as £300,000, though less exclusive Carrera models of each start from a much more palatable £30,000 or so.
The 959 was originally designed to compete in Group B racing, but after the category's demise it became known as a car which has arguably set the blueprint for all subsequent supercars to this day. Considered one of the most technologically advanced road cars ever produced on its 1986 release, it featured adaptive four-wheel drive, twin-turbocharging and a suspension system which featured adjustable ride height and damping. With a 195mph top speed, it was the fastest production car in the world. Approximately 330 were built, and today examples fetch as much as £700,000 at auction.
Buying a modern Porsche
Porsche ownership needn't be expensive, however, even if flat six power is a must. The Boxster may have switched to a turbocharged four for 2016, but earlier iterations offer a gorgeous naturally aspirated soundtrack and sublime mid-engined balance. Late nineties 986 versions are available for less than £5,000. The solid-roofed Cayman followed with the second generation of Boxster, and a solid example can be had for less than £15,000. 
Most affordable of all the Porches remains the 924. The front-engined, rear-wheel drive chassis was lauded in period, though the VW-derived four cylinder engines were criticised for lacking performance and character. Though values are beginning to climb, it's still possible to find sellers asking for around £3,000. The closely-related 944 is marginally more expensive, and was developed into something considerably faster as the years went on.
In 1998, the 996-generation 911 signalled the end of air-cooled Porsches. While many collectors consider these to be less desirable as a result, the good news is that 996 values remain fairly low. High-mileage Carrera and Carrera S models available for around £10,000, while even those which have covered fewer than 10,000 miles cost barely more than £30,000.
The most valuable of the common era are the 'hypercar' Porsches: the Carrera GT and the 918 Spyder. The former was a result of a stillborn Le Mans prototype development, and features a 5.7-litre V10 producing 612bhp. The 918 is powered by one of the most advanced powertrains fitted to any performance car. A 4.6-litre V8 is supplemented by a hybrid system to deliver a system output of 874bhp. At the hands of Marc Lieb, the 918 achieved a staggering Nurburgring Nordschleife lap time of 6min 57sec. Production ceased in 2015 once 918 units were built. Values for the Carrera GT stand at £400,000 and beyond, while the 918 rarely changes hands for less than £1,000,000.
It's recommended when buying any used car to examine several before committing, but for high performance cars like the 911 this becomes even more important.
Thought Porsche have refined the handling of the 911 over the decades, the rear-engined layout is still famous for catching out the less experienced drivers. It's very important, therefore, to search for any evidence of crash damage, particularly around the rear of the car.
Circa-2000 Porsche flat sixes, fitted to both the Boxster and the 996, are known for potentially terminal engine faults. The intermediate shaft bearing has a reputation for failure, and results in severe damage to the engine's valve timing and other internals. It's difficult to gauge which cars are most likely to fail, but extended service intervals are a likely cause. Search for the most regularly-maintained examples to reduce the risk. As with most Porsches, it's well worth tracking down an independent specialist to examine any potential purchase before you buy.

  • Porsche 912

    $35,500(£29,014.15) $35,500(£29,014.15)

    We have for sale a highly optioned 1969 Porsche 912. The 69’ model year was the final iteration of the Porsche 912 (except the one off 76’ 912E) and it received all the same exterior upgrades as the 69’ 911 including the lengthened wheelbase by 2.4 inches. Many owners preferred the handling characteristics of the 912 due to its lighter engine with less weight over the rear axle. Porsche used the 4-cyl engine from the 356 which they had been developing and improving for over a decade resulting in a compact and reliable engine comparatively simpler than the new 911’s 2.0 liter. This car is highly optioned and came with the following options per the Kardex; 5-speed transmission, leather steering wheel, tinted glass all around, special ordered paint (golden green), 6” Fuchs wheels, S-Trim package, bumper guards (f/r), sway bars and full leather interior. The engine number is not matching but very close to the original engine number. The engine has been completely rebuilt including reconditioned heads and brand new guides. The carburetors and fuel pump were disassembled, cleaned and reassembled. Fuel tank was flushed as well as the brake system. Gear lube was changed and the transmission main shaft seal was replaced amongst other work. Documents further detailing breakdown of work will be included in purchase. Sometime down the line the car was repainted yellow (someone gave the car a 1973 color scheme complete with black air intakes, black engine grill etc.) but the original Golden Green color is extremely desirable. The original floor panels are in great shape besides a minor rust spot on the driver side rocker panel. Car runs and drives great. This car would make a great drivers car and if repainted, would be an extremely desirable color and option combination for a 912. We restored a 1969 Porsche 911S in Golden Green 2 years ago and the complete photographic restoration is on our website for color reference. *Door pockets missing in the pictures will be included in purchase. Asking $35,500 For more information regarding this vehicle, please contact henk@carparcusa.com or call +1 562 331 0681 To further accommodate our international clients we can provide world wide shipping at owner’s expense. We speak English, German, Dutch and French.

  • 1964 Porsche Carrera 2 Cabriolet


    1964 Porsche 356C T6 Carrera 2 Cabriolet by Reutter VIN: 160232 The exclusive 356C Carrera 2 Cabriolet, which only 28 are believed to have been built from 1964-65, is one the rarest Porsche road cars. This example was finished at the factory on 5/5/1964. It would be imported to the US from Germany in 1976 by then owner, Lieutenant Colonel Fromm of Hartford, CT. At that point the car's original 4-cam had been lost to history. Fromm would put the car up for sale in 1977, and it would move on to Rick Cool of Fairfax, VA. He would own the car for only a short time, and the Cabriolet would move on to Rusty Ferrell of Utah in 1982 for $5000. During those years Ferrell would own five 356C Carreras, and would go on to restore the Cab. He sourced a correct 4-cam Carrera engine #97395 from Jim Shane of Salt Lake City and installed it in the car. Around 1989 the Cab would be sold to a European owner. The next appearance of 160232 would at a Christie's auction in Tarrytown, NY on June 15, 1996 where the Cabriolet would fetch $134,500. In 2013, after a couple of owners, the car would begin a top-level, concours level restoration here at Canepa. The Cabriolet was stripped down to its bare tub an

  • Porsche Carrera GT


    Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 The Porsche Carrera GT can trace its roots back to a stillborn racing program in the late 1990s, when Porsche sought to produce a new Le Mans prototype to replace the GT1. Originally intended to be powered by a 5.5-liter V-10, a change in FIA rules shelved Porsche’s racing plans while the model was in development. Porsche believed it could adapt the platform for use on the road if the car could not be used for racing. The Carrera GT was first seen in concept form on Porsche’s stand at the Paris Motor show in 2000. The concept received a massive amount of attention. With additional revenue thanks to the then new Cayenne SUV, Porsche decided to proceed with production going head-to-head with the Ferrari Enzo, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, and even the Ford GT. Notable technology includes a full carbon fibre monocoque and subframe produced by ATR Composites of Colonna, Italy. The Carrera GT was also fitted with a racing-derived suspension with upper and lower wishbones and inboard, rocker-arm suspension at all four corners. Ventilated and cross-drilled carbon-ceramic brakes are surrounded by forged magnesium alloy center-lock wheels. While Pors

The rules for FIA Group 4 homologation required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of 'Project 930' - the legendary 911/930 Turbo. The turbocharged 3.0 liter engine in road trim developed 260bhp with propelled the Turbo Carrera from and standstill to 100 mph in 14 seconds and resulted in a top speed of 155mph. Porsche’s first road going super car, this meant it was on par or faster that its contemporary’s in the day, the Aston Martin’s V8 Vantage, Ferrari’s 512 Berlinetta Boxer and Lamborghini’s Countach, certainly excellent company.

This extraordinarily well-restored Turbo Carrera is the 292nd example of 590 car model run for the 1976 Porsche model year. Porsche factory opt
