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.

Drive-up bank robbery perpetrated with Cayenne and WRX

Sat, 14 Sep 2013 19:01:00 EST

Thieves carried out what appears to be a movie-script-perfect robbery of a bank in Sydney, Australia early on Friday morning, using two stolen high-performance vehicles in the process.
At around 11:15 AM local time, in near mid-day light, reports say that two men in masks smashed into the side of a Westpac bank in a confirmed-stolen black Porsche Cayenne. The perpetrators were armed with sledgehammers according to witness reports, and took only about five minutes to take what they were after inside of the bank.
The rapid getaway was executed in a Subaru WRX, also confirmed as a stolen vehicle, while witnesses snapped camera phone images of the illicit goings on. One Twitter user posted a few of the images to his social media feed; you can take a look at them in our small gallery below. Follow on down for the full video report, from The Sydney Morning Herald.

40+ cars that barely avoid the gas guzzler tax

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 12:59:00 EST



The Gas Guzzler schedule, with mpg ratings and charges that haven't changed since 1991, lays out which fuel-swillers owe what to Uncle Sam.
I started thinking about the "Gas Guzzler Tax" - considerably less well known as The Energy Tax Act of 1978 - when I was driving Dodge's new Challenger SRT Hellcat last week. Unsurprisingly for a car that can burn 1.5 gallons of gas per minute at max tilt, theoretically able to empty a full tank of premium in about 13 minutes, the Hellcat will be subject to the Gas Guzzler Tax schedule when it goes on sale.

Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach package does 0-62 mph in 2.6 seconds

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 19:00:00 EST

Porsche marketers are having a field day with the 918 Spyder after some last-minute tuning improved the car's performance. They now say that it's so fast it's already beaten itself. Let us explain: Using a Weissach package-equipped 918 as an example (which reduces the plug-in hybrid supercar's weight through the deletion of some interior items, more generous use of carbon fiber and magnesium wheels), the car's previous official 0-62 miles-per-hour time of 2.8 seconds has been cut to 2.6. Additionally, 0-124 mph takes 7.2 seconds and 0-186 mph is dispatched in 19.9 seconds, times that were reduced by half a second and 2.1 seconds, respectively.
In all-electric mode, a non-Weissach pack 918 does 0-62 mph in 6.2 seconds (with the package, 6.1 seconds), down from 6.9 seconds. Efficiency is also improved thanks to the final tuning. The New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) rating of a Weissach pack-equipped car equates to 94 miles per gallon, up three mpg compared to before. That's pretty good for a car with 887 horsepower!
Check out the press release below for more details on how Porsche's final tuning measures improved its flagship supercar.
