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 kicks off Macan production at revamped Leipzig plant

Sun, 16 Feb 2014 08:57:00 EST

After over two years of construction and roughly 500 million euros ($684 million at current rates) invested, Porsche finally opened its Leipzig, Germany, factory expansion on February 11. The improvements to the plant are dedicated to building the Macan and include a new body shop, paint shop and assembly line that are advancing Porsche's goal to sell 50,000 Macan's per year. The company believes that the new model is going to push it to over 200,000 annual sales 3 years ahead of schedule, and the enlarged branch can support even more Macan production, if there is demand.
"We are totally convinced in the qualities of this location and that the Macan will be a marketing success," said Porsche Chairman Matthias Müller during the opening celebration. The company opened its Leipzig factory in 2002 to build the Cayenne and added Panamera production in 2009.
The Macan models are due to launch in the US this summer with prices starting at $49,900. Scroll down to learn all of the details about the Macan's Leipzig assembly plant.

This Porsche 356 family keeps it outlaw

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 20:00:00 EST

Rod Emory was the founder of Emory Motorsports in Burbank, CA, and the scion to a family tradition of building "outlaw" Porsches that are almost as cool as the cars themselves. The lovingly modified Porsche 356s are lovely artifacts, and their story, along with the story of their builders, is pitch-perfect for the Petrolicious oeuvre of beloved classics.
Tune in for the history lesson, and then stick around for the car candy.

Porsche board members facing another 1.8B lawsuit over VW takeover bid

Mon, 03 Feb 2014 15:44:00 EST

Back in 2008, Porsche got the bright idea that it could take over Volkswagen in the midst of the worst economic slump since the Great Depression. Ignoring that this was a catastrophic move for the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer that that eventually resulted in it nearly going bankrupt and eventually being taken over by the same company it sought to control, the aftermath has left Porsche Chairman Wolfgang Porsche and board member Ferdinand Piëch in the crosshairs of seven hedge funds that lost out during the takeover and are now seeking €1.8 billion - $2.43 billion US - in damages from the two execs, according to the BBC.
See, investors bet on Volkswagen's share price going down, partially because Porsche said it wasn't going to attempt a takeover. But Porsche was attempting to take over VW, having bought up nearly 75-percent of VW's publicly traded shares. When word broke that Porsche owned nearly three-quarters of VW (which indicated an imminent takeover attempt), rather than go down like the hedge funds bet it would, VW's share price skyrocketed to over 1,000 euros per share, according to Reuters.
Naturally, when you bet that a company's share price is going to drop and it in turn (temporarily) becomes the world's most valuable company, you lose a lot of money, unless you're able to buy up shares before prices jump too much. This led to a squeeze on the stock, which the hedge funds accuse Porsche and Piëch (who are both members of the Porsche family and supervisory board) of organizing.
