Over the past few weeks, a number of people have emailed asking to advertise their cars on this site. Currently, there is no classified section available. The cars you do see for sale are either those listed by the sites sponsors or those found on eBay. Would the ability to list your cars for sale, to a very targeted group of Porsche owners and enthusiasts (more than 10,000 per month and growing), interest you?
For those of you looking to sell your Porsche, I want to remind you that each one of the site's sponsors: TruSpeed Motorcars, Willhoit Enterprises and Sloan Cars all buy cars as well. I know what you’re going to say, they’ll only offer you wholesale pricing. In some instances, that may be true, but in others, depending on the car, they may be able to do much better. The market for certain cars is very limited and they get most of their inventory from people just like you. Each one of them is as much a buyer of cars as they are a seller.
With that said, I wanted to showcase three cars that were brought to my attention in the last few weeks:
Race-Ready Porsche 914 For Sale or Trade
The first comes from a reader looking to trade one interesting Porsche for another. Specifically, Dan Muldowney is looking to trade his race-ready 914 for another air-cooled gem (993, 964 or 930.) Here are some particulars:
1974 Porsche 914-6 2.2 liter Race Car: Very fast. Very light. Drives, handles and shifts like a shifter cart, only bigger! Current PCA and Vintage / VSCR log books. Professionally built and maintained by Bob Viau and his team at Auto Edge for the last 10 years. PCA GT5R or S class. PCA, NASA, SCCA, POC and Vintage legal. Current PCA inspection, (4/20/07). Weighs 2000 lbs. 250 Horsepower.
1:54 at BIR. “Fastest Lap of the Race” at Barber Motorsports Park, 2004. “Worker’s Choice Award” at Topeka, 2007. “Worker’s Choice Award” at Gingerman 2003. 15 First In Class finishes in the last 20 starts. Very reliable. Recent rebuild on engine and sequential transmission with test hours only. New suspension.
The remaining details about Dan’s car are way too long to list (including a recent engine rebuild with test hours only), but he has over $125,000 invested and is asking $37,500 or B/O and will consider all trades or cash + trade. You can contact Dan directly at his email or by sending to us via the contact page.
Last of the Air-Cooled 993s For Sale
The second car to showcase in today’s post comes courtesy of Willhoit Enterprises (not only is Willhoit a sponsor, but the 993 showcased in the about section of this site was purchased there.) For sale at Willhoit's is a 1998 Porsche 993 C2S.
Okay, what’s so special about that you ask? Well, besides being the last of the air-cooled 993s, this particular example is a one owner with only 5075 miles. For all intents and purposes this car is brand-new. The 993 comes equipped with the following: chrome oval exhaust tips, metal door sill with insignia, aluminum instrument dials, aluminum shifter and brake handle, motor sound package, limited slip with active brake differential, am/fm cassette cr 210 radio, 18'' technology wheels, full power seat left, partial power seat right, automatic speed control and power sunroof. The pictures below speak for themselves. Please contact Michael for more information.
A Water Pumper-996 For Sale
Last, but definitely not least, is a 2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S. This particular car is finished in one of our favorite colors schemes, Lapis Blue exterior with Savanna Beige interior. At only 22,500 miles this Porsche comes complete with the CPO through May of 2009.
The seller, Adam Shuster, says the car is in excellent condition with no paintwork/accidents and more importantly, no stories. He has all the service records, manuals, keys, etc. This 6 speed 996 comes with a B&M short shifter, heated seats with memory and Porsche crest, AM/FM/CD, rear wiper, painted center-caps, painted rear bumperettes, center console and bumper plugs, Aluminum look gauge surrounds, Red “S” on deck lid and pre-wired for Valentine One Radar.
