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 918 Spyder could lap the 'Ring even quicker [w/video]

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 19:01:00 EST

Porsche had a lot to crow about at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week. Not only did it debut the new 50 Years edition and Turbo versions of the 911 and the new hybrid and diesel versions of the Panamera, but while unveiling the final production version of the new 918 Spyder, it revealed the record lap it set around the Nürburgring.
The 918 Spyder's 6:57 lap time makes it the fastest street-legal production car ever to lap the Nordschleife and the first to break the seven-minute barrier. But the driver who clocked the time thinks it can go even faster.
That driver was Marc Lieb, who has won the Nürburgring 24-hour race four times, making him something of an expert on the subject. In speaking with Australia's Drive TV, Lieb suggested that they could get even more out of the car, as you can hear for yourself in the video below.

Porsche unlocks secrets of its mid-engine 911

Fri, 23 May 2014 15:01:00 EST

Porsche is beginning to realize that it's sitting on a goldmine of automotive history with its secret vault full of rare cars. Autoblog toured it a few months ago, and we were amazed at all of the curiosities hidden inside. Now, it's starting to let more folks in thanks to a new series of YouTube videos. The first covered the 965 prototype that shoved a water-cooled, Audi V8 into one of its cars. Next up, a mid-engine 911 that acted as the powertrain test mule for the Boxster.
The Porsche 911 is inextricably linked to its rear-engine layout. They go together like peanut butter and jelly. However, at the time Porsche was developing the Boxster, the company didn't want to lay all of its cards out of the table during testing. As opposed to using camouflage, it put a whole different car on top. The prototype looked just like any other 911 Targa of the day, but the biggest giveaway that something was amiss was the heavily tinted rear window. By obscuring it, inquisitive journalists couldn't peak at the new engine that replaced the backseat.
It might not look like anything too important on the outside, but this is a major piece of Porsche Boxster history underneath. Scroll down to watch the video about this fascinating prototype.

Jay Leno plugs himself into Porsche's 918 Spyder

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 12:47:00 EST

As one of the greatest sports car manufacturers of all time, when Porsche puts out a new, ultra-exclusive hypercar, enthusiasts tend to stand up and take note. Jay Leno is no exception, and now, the funnyman is finally getting his time with awesome 918 Spyder.
With his 1963 Porsche 356 and his 2005 Carrera GT flanking a Liquid Silver 918, Leno takes us through the basics of this plug-in hybrid roadster alongside Daniel Eastman of Porsche North America. Following the chat, Leno and Eastman take the German-plated car through the streets of California, testing it in a number of modes and even going on a short, all-electric freeway cruise.
If you're looking to learn more about the 918, or to just here its glorious gas engine at work, you'll want to scroll down and take a look at the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage.
