1965 Porsche 356 C Coupe Matching Numbers

Body
It is signal red (6407) which is the original color. It has been painted once but the date is unknown. I would
guess at least 30 years. There is no evidence of crash damage. The pan is original and solid including the battery
box. Most of the factory undercoat remains. The paint looks reasonable from 20 feet but there are several chips,
checking and a few 2" small dents on the top of the right front fender. The jack points are solid. The dash and
door jambs have original paint. The gaps are excellent and the doors close nicely with authority. The hood is
unbent. It is not marked with a number. The glass is good but there is a small chip in the driver side windshield
that has not been repaired. The windshield is not original and is not tinted like the rest of the glass. The lower
edge of the passenger door has some bubbles in the paint as seen in the photo that have not changed during my
ownership.

Interior
The interior is black vinyl. It is original and in remarkably nice condition. There are no tears or seam
separations. The vinyl is supple. It has factory headrests. The seat belts are vintage Rupert Parachute Company
with Porsche script on the buckle. The carpet is original with minimal wear with intact binding. It has an under
dash oil pressure gauge which is after market that works. The clock works but is slow and does not keep accurate
time. The VW Sapphire radio does not work. It was dealer installed with the antenna placed on the right side. The
headliner is nice with no tears. The coco mats are period and original in nice condition. The under dash area looks
near new.

Engine #716331
The engine is original. In 1973 with 46,000 miles it developed problems and was rebuilt. I have the receipt from
Bob Hindson Racing which was a premier midwest Porsche shop. It starts easily and runs well. It is very reliable.
There is occasional smoke on start up likely from leaky valve guides. It does drip some oil. Carbs and distributor
were rebuilt by Carburetor Rescue.

Transaxle #84244 11 4 741/2C
Original to the car. It shifts well with no grinding. No clutch issues.
Suspension, brake, steering
Tires have good tread. No known suspension issues. Brakes function well. Steers in a straight line. The wheels are
not date matched. The current wheels are chrome 912. The originals were painted.

Porsche Macan Turbo vs Cayman GTS in track battle

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 12:45:00 EST

"Well this is stupid." On the surface, that was our reaction to this video, as well. Why would you compare the hottest Porsche Cayman with a crossover of any kind, even if it is the 400-horsepower Macan Turbo?
We're guessing because it'd be bloody good fun, as evidenced Auto Express's latest track battle. To be fair, there is some interesting stuff here. The two do have a similar starting price, separated by less than $3,000 here in the US market. And, factoring in the Macan's hefty horsepower and torque advantages - 60 horsepower and 126 pound-feet - does make for a slightly interesting comparison.
We won't spoil the verdict, so check out the full video from Auto Express, and then let us know what you think in Comments.

Porsche reveals new 911 Turbo Cabriolets, starting from $160,700*

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 09:31:00 EST

Porsche has come a long way from the days when its entire model line revolved essentially around the 911, but its prototypical rear-engined sports car is still what it's known for best, and still keeps the German automaker pretty busy. With a seemingly endless array of variations on the theme, the 911s just keep on coming until a new generation arrives and then it starts all over again. And what we have here is the new king of the hill (for now, anyway).
Set to debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show a little less than two months from now are the new Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolets. And no, that's not a typo: that's cabriolets, plural, because what you're looking at are two new models. First up is the 911 Turbo Cabriolet, whose 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six develops 520 horsepower, driving the droptop to 60 miles per hour in 3.3 seconds. That's Porsche's claim, and we have a feeling it's a bit conservative. But if that's still not enough, the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet adds an extra 40 hp for a total of 560 to drop the benchmark acceleration run down to 3.1 seconds.
That makes the new topless Turbos 30 horses stronger and 0.2 seconds quicker than the respective models they replace, but the weight penalty involved with replacing a fixed roof with a folding one (and the necessary structural reinforcement) does make the new 911 Turbo Cabs a smidgen more lethargic than their contemporary coupe counterparts, which run the gauntlet in 3.2 and 2.9 seconds in standard Turbo and upgraded Turbo S specs, respectively. They only lose a single tick on the top speed, though, which clocks in at a follicle-tickling 195 mph in either spec. Otherwise the specifications are as identical as you might expect.

Porsche reveals first Macan driving and manufacturing footage

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 16:58:00 EST

One of the more anticipated offerings of the upcoming year, Porsche's sporty baby Cayenne, the 2015 Macan, has already earned nods of approval from a number of Autoblog staffers. We named it one of the top five debuts at last month's LA Auto Show, citing its 400-horsepower turbocharged engine and other sporty bits as good reasons to get excited about Stuttgart's latest.
And while our first test may be many months away, we're keeping our ears to the ground for any information on Porsche's compact crossover. We're especially keen on stuff like this - our first look at the new model in motion and undergoing assembly at its Leipzig plant. Both are shorter videos, and while there's little of the glorious engine noise we've already been teased with, the videos do offer a great look at the handsome Macan on the road, as well as glimpse at Porsche's state-of-the-art manufacturing operations.
Scope out the videos below and let us know what you think.
