More infos regarding my cat at: . Matching-numbers 1961 Porsche 356 coupe in great running condition. This is a well-sorted, turn-key car. I've given
it a mild "outlaw" look but all the correct, original parts are included in the sale if the buyer would like to put
back to a "stock" appearance.
This car contains almost all of it's original components including the original spare tire and rim (as noted on the
car's Certificate of Authenticity it is a Firestone Phoenix tire that appears to be unused). The car was originally
Fjord Green and was repainted red/orange prior to my purchase - the paint presents very well.
I am a long time Porsche 356 enthusiast and went through this car thoroughly.
All body panels including trunk lid, doors and engine lid are original and numbers-stamped with last 3 digits of
VIN (848).
Almost all date-stamped components are also correct and date-matching including the gas tank, original spare rim,
Bosch coil, VDO gas gauge float, starter, and voltage regulator (generator is dated 1963).
The engine compartment retains it's unique (1961) and correct firewall insulation.
The engine was rebuilt prior to my purchase, and runs excellently. Upgrades I discovered were big bore pistons and
cylinders and an aluminum oil cooler. A compression test showed good compression between 120-135.
Major recent work includes rust repair using correct metal replacement panels to the battery box floor (the tow
hook was replaced at this time), rear doglegs and closing panels behind rear longitudinal on driver's side. The
underside has also been coated with Wurth product.
I've also installed a beautiful Sebring style exhaust made by Karmann Konnection in the UK. The unit was
bead-blasted and coated in off-white prior to installation and has less that 200 miles on it since installed.
I also had much more work done and many more items restored or replaced (too many to list but I have all receipts
and will include in sale), including:
Gas tank was removed, sealed with Red Kote and repainted with 2 stage epoxy (original style felt strips
underneath tank and under straps)
Original fuel petcock rebuilt
Trunk compartment detailed/painted, new rubber mat, tire strap bracket, tank hoses and ground strap
Generator rebuilt/voltage regulator tested and calibrated
Starter rebuilt
Distributor rebuilt and detailed
Horns rebuilt and refinished
New Boge steering damper
New Dunlop tires (with period-style stencils) and 4 wheel alignment
New battery/NOS battery cover
Engine components refinished correctly/with correct decals
New bulbs throughout; headlights, interior dome lights, turn signals, license plate lights
Rear vinyl interior panel restored
Period "Moto Lita" steering wheel with vintage Porsche crest horn button
Original components included in the sale are; original steering wheel, rear bumperettes with funnels and horn
grills. All in very good to excellent condition.

Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe vs Porsche Panamera Turbo S in unusual lux showdown

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 20:02:00 EST

We'll admit it, we're really looking forward to more time with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. Compared to other high-dollar luxury coupes - we're looking at you Bentley Continental GT - it's more stylish, easily more affordable, and since it's a Mercedes, lacks the sense of fragility that comes with a more exotic name plate.
Auto Express has taken a whack at reviewing the new two-door S-Class, and for some reason, the British mag is comparing it with a Porsche Panamera. Now, while comparing the looks of an S-Class Coupe and a Panamera is a bit like holding a beauty contest between Kate Upton and Medusa, this isn't as bizarre a pair as you might think, particularly when you opt for the high-dollar S63 AMG Coupe and the Panamera Turbo S.
The two offer similar power outputs from their force-induced V8s - 577 horsepower in the Benz and 570 horsepower in the Porsche - and are even similar in terms of interior and exterior dimensions. The S-Class actually has an extra inch between the axles and is 1.2 inches longer overall (it's also about 300 pounds heavier). In the cabin, the S-Class also has a tiny bit more rear legroom, with 33.4 inches to the Panamera's 33.3.

Porsche announces four flavors of updated Cayenne [w/video]

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 03:20:00 EST

The new Macan may be getting all the attention lately, but Porsche hasn't forgotten about its larger crossover - the one that put it on the map in 2002 and on the road to profitability, with over half a million sold so far. So to keep the Cayenne at the top of its game, Porsche has announced several key upgrades for the 2015 model.
For starters, Porsche has updated the Cayenne's appearance with new front- and rear-end styling. The front bumper, fenders and hood are entirely new, with air fins flanking the nose to direct air into the intercoolers (each model now being artificially aspirated), and new bi-xenon headlamps and daytime running LEDs on every model but the Turbo, which goes all-LED. Around back there's also new taillights, tailgate handle, lower rear fascia and exhaust pipes. Meanwhile the interior has been upgraded with a 918-derived sport steering wheel and reformed rear seats with available ventilation.
The bigger news is under the engine bay, where Porsche is offering four choices. The base model is gone as the range starts with the Cayenne Diesel, followed by the Cayenne S, the new Cayenne S E-Hybrid and the top-of-the-line Cayenne Turbo. The Diesel model carries over the same 3.0-liter turbo diesel with 240 horsepower. The Cayenne S however packs a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 that's similar to the one found in the Macan Turbo and packs the same 406 lb-ft of torque but more power at 420 hp, 20 more than either its little brother or the model it replaces to reach 62 mph in 5.2 seconds.

Porsche finally moving ahead with flat four engine

Sun, 23 Mar 2014 19:31:00 EST

When Porsche released the first Boxster in 1996 and the first Cayman in 2005, the idea was to create an entry-level model for the German automaker's sports car range. The latest iterations of both closely related models, however, have begun to encroach dangerously on the 911's territory, particularly in their newest GTS specifications. That could be about to change, however, with the introduction of a four-cylinder engine for the compact mid-engined coupe and roadster.
According to Automotive News, Porsche is finally preparing to launch a new boxer four engine in the Boxster and Cayman, following years of speculation. The engine would be based on the same architecture as the company's famous flat six, but with two fewer cylinders to cut weight. Don't expect it to cut much in the way of performance, however: Porsche chief Matthias Muller indicates that the new engine could produce as much as 395 horsepower - significantly more than even the 340hp flat six in the Cayman GTS, suggesting that the engine could even find its way into the 911 as well.
It's no more clear which markets would get the four-cylinder engine, either. But wherever it is offered and in whichever form, it wouldn't be the first time we'd see a Porsche with a four-pot engine. Not by a long shot. Both the classic 912 and 356 were powered by boxer fours, as was the 914 - not to mention the 718 pictured above and the iconic 550 Spyder. The front-engined 924, 944 and 968 packed inline-four engines, but the last of those were discontinued in the 1990s. The prospect of a four-cylinder Boxster/Cayman has been rumored for many years now, most recently joined by the possibility of a four-pot Macan as well.
