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 bringing Macan S Diesel to US instead of 4-cylinder [w/poll]

Mon, 16 Dec 2013 14:31:00 EST

When Porsche unveiled the new Macan at the LA Auto Show, it announced two powerplants for the US market, both of them twin-turbo V6s: the Macan S equipped with 340 horsepower from its 3.0-liter engine, and the Macan Turbo with 400 horses from 3.6 liters. But those aren't the only engines Porsche will offer in its new compact crossover. Porsche is also offering the Macan S Diesel overseas with 258 hp, and reports have since indicated that a pair of four-cylinder models on their way: a 2.0-liter turbo four with 280 hp and four-pot turbodiesel of the same capacity with an as-yet undisclosed output.
Now Car and Driver is reporting that while those four-cylinder engines won't be making the transatlantic voyage to our shores, Porsche will offer the aforementioned Macan S Diesel in North America beginning in early 2015, nearly a year after the gas V6 versions arrive.
The 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 is based on the same engine found in the Cayenne Diesel and the Audi Q5 TDI on which the Macan is based. Of course, its 248 hp is substantially less than the 340 ponies in the Macan S, but its 413 pound-feet of torque outshines not only the 339 lb-ft in the Macan S but also the 406 lb-ft in the Macan Turbo. Acceleration times, however, suggest the Macan S Diesel is still slower, with a 6.3-second run to 62 mph than neither the Macan S (5.4 sec) or Macan Turbo (4.8). The good news is that the Macan S Diesel is tipped to undercut the price of both, dropping the oil-burning crossover's MSRP below that of the $49,900 starting price for the Macan S and the $49,600 for the base Cayenne. If that C/D prediction comes to pass, that will make it the Macan S Diesel most affordable Porsche sold.

Race Recap: 2013 Petit Le Mans draws curtain on the ALMS [spoilers]

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 11:29:00 EST

The 16th Petit Le Mans Powered By Mazda, in the final year of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón, was run on Saturday. Even though many of this year's championships had already been decided, the last ALMS race ever would be a 10-hour, 1,000-mile slog around Road Atlanta to get names in the record books and decide a few series trophies.
Since some of you will only get around to your TIVOs (or Fox Sports coverage) today, you should stop reading now if you don't want to know who did what...

Driving 50 years of Porsche 911 history

Raiding The Porsche Museum For A Fun Track Day
It seems everyone is celebrating anniversaries this year: it's Aston's hundredth, Lamborghini's fiftieth, Ford Mustang's fiftieth, Chevy Corvette's sixtieth - and Tesla just turned ten or something. It's been a little out of hand, frankly, all these forced marketing festivities, but if we had to pick one milestone to really celebrate hard and party all night, the Porsche 911 would be at the top of our list.
Get ready for a major 911 blowout bash at next week's Frankfurt Motor Show. It was on September 12 back in 1963 at this very show where Porsche unveiled its "901" painted in a rather boring shade of beige. Though drably finished, the car caused a worldwide frenzy in the budding German sports car sphere.
