Offered for sale is an absolutely gorgeous, exceptionally original, award-winning, matching-numbers 1962 Porsche 356 B Super cabriolet in striking factory correct Smyrna Green over Brown leather seats. The 1600 Super was created as a high- performance option to the regular 1600, offering 15 more horsepower with larger valves, increased compression, and improved performance. Featuring the more sought-after T6 body style with twin-engine grilles on the deck lid, and an outside (rather than in the trunk) fuel filler, this best-of-the-breed 356 B 1600 Super is highly desirable. A well-loved example, the car presents wonderfully and has an extensively documented provenance.

 

On December 2, 1961, Richard Steppler walked into the Volkswagen—Porsche dealership owned by Dr. Guy Beretich in Pordenone, Italy, and bought himself an early Christmas present – this magnificent 356 B Porsche. Eventually Mr. Steppler passed the car to his nephew, Richard Kubacki, and it is known that the car stayed in Europe (primarily Munich, Germany, and Monte Carlo) until 1968, when it was shipped to Chicago. At some point the car was repainted silver and in 1988 it was purchased by its most recent owner (of 25 years) in Milwaukee with 79,000 miles on the clock.

 

Under his stewardship the car was systematically stripped and returned to its original color – the stunning Glasurit Syrmna Green you see it dressed in today, complete with wheels of the same color. The brakes were overhauled, the engine was gone through, and the top half of the motor was rebuilt with new heads so that the car could run on unleaded gas in the United States. Despite these vital improvements, the car’s originality was respectfully maintained and the car still has its original radio, luggage rack, date-stamped wheels, six-volt electrical system, and exceedingly rare and valuable complete tool kit with Porsche-inscribed wrenches. In addition, much of the interior of the car is as it was the day it left the factory with the same steering wheel, gently worn brown leather seats, headlights, dash panel knobs, and clock. The soft top has been freshly replaced with the correct German Happich material and the carpets have been correctly redone. The car’s undercarriage and battery box are immaculate and completely free of rust and the car is an absolute joy to drive.

 

Its unusual preservation and exquisite aesthetics made it a perennial favorite at car shows, allowing it to claim many first, second, and third place trophies, plus over 30 other award plaques, many of which came from Porsche Club of America events. The car also made appearances in An Eye for an Eye, a movie set in Chicago in 1991, as well as an advertisement for Cellular One.

 

This fully documented matching-numbers car comes with the rare, signed, early Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and the original sales receipt showing the purchase price from the dealership in Italy, with the Italian tax stamps dated 1961. Also included in the sale are boxes upon boxes of Porsche-stamped spare parts, the original boot cover (plus a traveling boot), Porsche car cover, trophies and awards, original Porsche sales brochures and the original owner’s manual.

 

The rare and original color combination, strong-running Super engine, popular T6 body, and legendary reliability make this exceptional, fully documented 356 B the perfect Porsche enthusiast’s choice, deserving of serious consideration from anyone in the market for an exceptional 356.

We’ve always had an appreciation for classic European cars and over the years have created an eclectic personal collection. We only buy cars that we’d personally be interested in owning and generally only sell them to make room for other acquisitions. Sadly, that time has come for this Porsche (if the price is right, of course - this isn't a fire sale). We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we’re selling, but we’re enthusiasts, not experts, and we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding, as the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.

For U.S. buyers a 10% non-refundable deposit is required within 3 days of the auction’s end, the balance to be paid within 7 days of the auction’s end. Foreign buyers must pay in full within 7 business days of the auction’s end. Buyer is responsible for shipping, however we’d be more that happy to help with recommendations and arrangements. The car is listed locally and we reserve the right to end the auction at any time should it sell prior to auction’s end. Thanks for your interest.

Porsche 959 Prototype started it all

Wed, 11 Sep 2013 17:01:00 EST

While Porsche was unveiling the new Nürburgring-dominating 918 Spyder downstairs in Hall 3 here at the Frankfurt Messe, there was another Porsche supercar quietly and discretely on display upstairs in the same hall. That, of course, was the 959. But not just any 959: this was the original Gruppe B prototype.
The 959 was first developed as a rally car in the early 80s to compete with the likes of the original Audi Sport Quattro S1, Ford RS200 and Lancia Delta S4. But Zuffenhausen soon saw its potential as a production road-going supercar, emerging as a technological marvel to challenge the decidedly linear approach of the Ferrari F40. It still stands as a groundbreaking supercar in its own right, but also lead to the first all-wheel-drive 911 Turbo and set the stage for the Carrera GT and aforementioned 918 Spyder that followed to cap the top of the evolving Porsche range.
This original Gruppe B prototype, which presaged the production 959, packed a 450-horsepower 2.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six into an even sleeker form than the final version that followed. We caught up with it on display as part of a display of 80s German classics, of which this 959 prototype immediately stood out as the pick of the proverbial litter. Check out the hotness in the high-resolution image gallery above.

Porsche 911 GT2 caught testing, is super bad

Thu, 27 Jun 2013 13:32:00 EST

Look what spy photographers have spotted sprinting around the Nürburgring. Our shooters nabbed a few photos of the all-new Porsche 911 GT2 in its native habitat without any of the bulky camouflage or cladding we're used to seeing. The result is our first truly clear view at the upcoming successor to the GT2 throne. From the looks of it, the new model will boast wider fender arches front and rear, and hefty air intakes set into the machine's hips should help feed a beastly 3.8-liter flat six-cylinder engine. Early guesses put the engine output somewhere around 560 horsepower.
Mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the engine should propel this rear-engined heathen to 62 miles per hour in under three seconds. Top speed? Try somewhere around 200 mph. If that's true, the next-generation 911 GT2 will be the fastest 911 in Porsche history.
