Porsche 356c Coupe on 2040-cars
chrome has been replaced
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.

The Porsche 911 is a special car, if for no other reasons than it's been continuously produced since 1964, with nearly every generation regarded as being at or near the top of its class. But why the rear-engined icon has done so well among enthusiasts and regular drivers alike can't always be explained easily. To truly understand the 911, you have to experience the whole package, and that means driving one.

While just about every publication has raved about the Porsche, commercial director, race driver, photographer and 911 owner Jeff Zwart explains to Petrolicious why he was drawn to the legend as a young child, and why he still loves them today.
Zwart's professional and personal life are inextricably linked to the 911, and hearing him talk about the car and its history makes for fascinating viewing. Watch the video below to hear Zwart's story and see him drive a couple examples from his collection: an early 911 and the 964-generation Carrera 4 he won Pikes Peak with for the first time - a car that happens to be equipped with the 959 Paris-Dakar's fascinating torque-split transmission. Enjoy!
Porsche has given us another look back at its successes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This time it's 1971, the year that its 917 set records that haven't all been eclipsed. It's 45-kilogram magnesium tube frame was the lightest, Jackie Oliver set the fastest in-race lap with a time that still stands, and winning drivers Helmut Marko - the same Helmut Marko currently with Infiniti Red Bull Racing - and Gilles Lethem did so many laps that their distance wasn't exceeded until the Audi R15 TDI did it in 2010.

1971 was also the year of the "Pink Pig." With bodywork created by a French aerodynamics firm, the wider, rounder 917 earned the porcine moniker so Porsche painted it pink and labeled it with the cuts you'd get from a pig. Sponsor Martini was so miffed they demanded all Martini branding be removed. No one can remove the thousands of photographs taken of the car ever since. Enjoy that and more in the video below.
It's hard not to love the look of a classic Porsche. Whether it's the upside-down bathtub styling of the 356 or the gradual evolution of the 911, there is a little beauty in all of them. However, the older they get, the more that needs repaired to keep them on the road. Porsche Classic is helping out, though, by introducing its own brand of motor oil for the demands of the company's vintage, air-cooled engines.
Developed at the Porsche Development Centre in Weissach, Germany, Porsche Classic Motoroil comes in two weights - 20W-50 for the 356, 914 and 911 models up to the 2.7-liter G-Model and 10W-60 for 3.0-liters-and-up engines through the 993-chassis 911. The company claims that the air-cooled engines have different heat demands than traditional, water-cooled units, and this oil is made to meet those requirements.
According to Porsche, modern, synthetic oils are sometimes too effective when it comes to old engines. They are fantastic at sopping up debris, but those deposits are often holding archaic seals together. Suddenly removing them can cause leaks. The new oil is specifically designed to work with the old-fashioned materials found in its classics. The company also knows that most owners aren't driving their vintage cars everyday. So this formulation is more alkaline that normal to neutralize acids that they build up and corrode components.
