Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, United States

1964 Porsche 356C coupe SN 216929.  I purchased this 356 form the original owner in 1998 in Knoxville, TN.  She bought it new in San Antonio, TX and drove it back to LA where it spent most of its life.  She retired to TN and drove the car cross country.  When I purchased it, it went to Knoxville Porsche specialist, Air Cooled Classics.  It had a respray (original Light Ivory), engine / transmission rebuild, new Webber carbs, new interior & headliner, new carpet, new chrome wheels, Nardi steering wheel, and gone through thoroughly.  Most exterior chrome has been replaced.  Dash is in excellent untouched original condition down to the AM radio.  The only rust ever found on the car was under the battery tray which was repaired just after purchase.  Some window chrome has patina, and windshield and back glass rubber has some splitting.  Recent work included 8 volt battery conversion, and Webbers rebuilt.  Since I bought it in 1998 it has been garage kept.  Original owners manual, and original window sticker were still in glove box when I bought it.  They will be included in the sale and window sticker is framed.  This is a strong running, honest 356.  It can be enjoyed for many years as is or brought to perfection for very minimal investment.  This Porsche has been part of my family for many years, but is not getting used.  Time to let her go to another enthusiast. Car is currently located in NE Florida.  $5000.00 deposit due upon winning bid.  Buyer responsible for shipping.

Porsche Cayenne, Panamera production halted by flooding

Thu, 06 Jun 2013 17:45:00 EST

If you recently ordered a Porsche Cayenne or a Panamera, delivery may take a little longer than originally expected. Automotive News reports that production of both models has been temporarily halted at the Porsche assembly plant in Leipzig, Germany as the result of supply shortages caused by flooding in the nearby Czech Republic. The reason for the stoppage is that the body of the Cayenne - currently Porsche's best-selling model - is produced at a Volkswagen plant in the Czech city of Bratislava and shipped by train to Leipzig.
The report does not indicate why Panamera production has been stopped - that the five-door's body is made at a separate location in Hanover, Germany. However pre-assembly will continue on these models. At full capacity, the Leipzig plant can produce about 450 vehicles per day, and it isn't clear how long this weather-related stoppage will last.

Porsche announces plan to replace 911 GT3 engines

Wed, 19 Mar 2014 13:30:00 EST

About a month back, we reported that Porsche was suspending delivery of its 911 GT3 due to reported incidents of the engine bursting into flames. A few days later, Porsche told owners of the new track-ready models not to drive their cars and had their local dealers pick up the cars in question. Just a couple of days ago, we reported that Porsche was working on a fix, and now we have the official details.
Following an internal investigation prompted by two such incidents, Porsche has confirmed that is has identified the problem as resulting "from a loosened screw joint on the connecting rod." The loose connecting rod, Porsche found, damaged the crankcase, which in turn resulted in oil leaking and then - in at least two cases - igniting.
Our source is unaware of Porsche being contacted by GT3 owners concerned about the impact of a replacement engine on their car's collectibility or resale value.

Porsche exec confirms Macan Diesel for US

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 16:29:00 EST

The idea of a diesel-powered Porsche is the sort of thing that sounds really, really weird... until you actually drive it. The result of sticking glow plugs under the hood of Stuttgart's finest, though, is a vehicle that's nearly as entertaining as a gas-powered model but with much more torque and better fuel economy. Considering that, we think it's absolutely splendid news that following previous reports, Porsche has now confirmed a diesel-powered Macan for the US market.
"We are now busy with the development and the engineering," Andre Oosthuizen, Porsche's North American marketing VP, told Automotive News. "I can confirm that V6 diesel offering with about 245 horsepower."
Yep, that's the same 3.0-liter V6 found, most notably, in the CUV's Audi Q5 platform-mate as well as a plethora of other Volkswagen Group vehicles, both in the US and abroad. Stuttgart already offers the 3.0-liter oil-burner in the Euro-spec crossover, where it churns out 258 hp and 427 pound-feet of torque.
