beautiful 1957 356 A coupe. This is a california black plate carthat has been in CA until this year. It seems it was purchased in CA in 1957, then resold in the 70's to a person who had the color professionally changed from silver to Porsche red and the engine upgraded to a 1963 Super 90 engine and kept it until this year. The paint was done well and has the perfect amount of patina for this cars over all look. The steering wheel, shift knob chrome etc. has that perfectly aged look that lets you know that this was always a very well kept car. In my opinion, for a driver car, this kind of character makes the car cooler than one that is perfectly restored. It's for the owner that uses his cars and is not afraid to park it in the center of town or along the beach boardwalk.
The interior is new including professionally reupholstered correct seats, the speedometer and tach do not work. The car is very tight and drives very well, I drive it almost daily and it flies down the highway very well. I dont know if the engine has been rebuilt ever, but its very clean top and bottom and runs great. The tires are new, the paint shows very well. All lights work, the doors close perfectly. the doors line up well, windows go up and down as they should. It could use new windshield and backlite rubber. all sheet metal is matching number.
The car gets looks everywhere and is a blast to drive. Its not the kind of car that should be left in a garage without being used, its perfect for the guy or girl that is not afraid to use it! email for more info or if you want to come and see it.

Walter Röhrl was carving up the circuit in the Porsche 911 Turbo S like a skilled Jedi Master - and I was sitting next to him, mesmerized by the breathtaking show. I had strapped myself securely into the front passenger bucket of the all-new coupe less than a minute earlier, expecting nothing more than a few quick laps around a track at the hands of another celebrated race driver. Been there, done that. Many times, actually.
Yet this was different. Röhrl was not only calculated and methodical in his approach, but his rally-tuned cerebrum appeared to be actively reading available grip levels while effortlessly tossing the all-wheel-drive Porsche into each corner at gut-wrenching speeds. His hands were moving rapidly, sending tiny steering corrections to the front tires, and he was using every inch of the track to extract more speed. We launched over a curb, dropped a wheel in the dirt and then drifted around a wide off-camber turn. His human precision and focus was astounding, and the performance he was extracting from the machine was just short of breathtaking.
The sequence of events from 2007 that began with Porsche's secret attempt to take over Volkswagen, and instead lead to Porsche being taken over by VW, continues to instigate lawsuits against the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer. A group of hedge funds that suffered over $1 billion in losses sued the car company in New York. Porsche had publicly stated it wasn't trying to buy VW, the hedge funds in question were shorting VW stock, and when Porsche's actual intentions were revealed, the stock shot up and the hedge funds took a beating.

The case was thrown out over the issue of jurisdiction, then appealed, only to see another suit filed on top of that. After that, most of the hedge funds withdrew their claims in New York and Porsche offered a 90-day window to refile in Germany where it is already fighting a number of other suits over the same issue. The hedge funds accepted the offer, refiling in Stuttgart for $1.8 billion in damages. According to Bloomberg, Porsche hasn't commented on the refiling, but as the same plaintiffs are involved, it's safe to assume that the carmaker still feels the case is "unsubstantiated and without merit." It has fared alright so far even in German courts, with two lesser cases against it thrown out last year.
Times are tough in Europe right now, and that unfortunately has reaped disastrous consequences for some of its smallest niche automakers. Gumpert, Wiesmann, Artega and Lola have all filed for bankruptcy this year, and it appears that tuners are not immune to the tough times, either.
Word coming in from across the pond suggests that 9ff and SpeedArt - two of the biggest names in Porsche tuning - have filed for bankruptcy as well. 9ff is best known for the GT9, a radical hypercar barely based on the 911, while SpeedArt was once of the foremost tuners of Porsches.
Fortunately there are still plenty of tuners ready to take a wrench to your Elfen, but the reported demise of these two makes the market a little bit smaller and - for Porsche enthusiasts - maybe the world a little bit lonelier, too.
