The Porsche 356C was the final model of the 356 before it was replaced by the 911. The T6 body featured a larger windshield, larger rear glass, twin engine grilles, a fuel filler moved to the fender, a squared off front hood and improved interior ventilation. The C is distinguishable by the flat hubcaps denoting the 4-wheel disc brakes which provide outstanding performance.. Porsche used their experience in racing to develop an extremely rigid body with a low centre of gravity weighing only 1990 lbs. The front and rear torsion bar suspension compliments the precise steering and the 741 gearbox shifts with accuracy and ease. Those of us who have enjoyed owning them can attest to their attributes. The drive is exemplary giving either a relaxing highway cruise or classic Porsche road holding down a twisting road.
This car was stripped to bare metal and colour changed from red to white. Stoddard's supplied most of the restoration parts. The engine was built in California as a 1750, and produces more power and torque than the stock C engine which was rated at 88 horsepower.The interior is beautifully appointed with the correct square weave carpet, then trimmed in tan leather from Auto's International. This car would suit a 356 afficianado looking for an appreciating classic that can be driven daily. It has been fully inspected by our factory Porsche technicians here at Porsche Centre Victoria, and is ready to drive and enjoy.
I welcome any questions you may have.

We are always looking for classic air cooled cars, and offer special winter-pricing on project work. We can arrange pick up and drop off with our enclosed trailer.

Porsche Macan Turbo vs Cayman GTS in track battle

Fri, 19 Sep 2014

"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.

Are you the next Porsche 911 GT3 RS or GT2?

Thu, 17 Apr 2014

Porsche typically keeps to a suitably fast schedule when it comes to rolling out increasingly hard-core performance versions of the 911. After the 997 Carrera debuted in 2004, the GT3 version followed in 2006, and by the end of the 2007, Porsche had rolled out both the GT3 RS and GT2 versions. Then the facelifted 997.5 came out in 2008 and it was back to the start: the GT3 came in 2009, the GT3 RS and GT2 RS in 2010, and the GT3 RS 4.0 in 2011. But things have slowed down some with the latest 991 generation.
The new Carrera came in 2011 and the GT3 followed in 2012. By recent history's example, we should have at least two more hardcore models by now, but we don't. Maybe the engineers in Zuffenhausen have had their hands full fixing the spontaneous-combustion issues with the existing GT3, or maybe their attentions have been focused elsewhere altogether. But if these spy shots are anything to go by, it seems like they're back on the job.
Now we don't know if this prototype foreshadows a new GT3 RS or a GT2, but it sure looks more hard-core than the existing GT3 that many purists have derided as too soft, what with its automatic transmission and four-wheel steering.

Porsche considering X6-style Cayenne coupe

Mon, 05 May 2014

It was practically unthinkable when Porsche introduced the Cayenne in 2002. An SUV... from Porsche? Purists balked, but customers flocked, and the Cayenne propelled the its holding company into such profitability that it practically took over the entire Volkswagen Group. It's now been twelve years since the original Cayenne arrived as the first production Porsche with more than two doors, and Zuffenhausen has since followed up with the Panamera, the Macan and the second-generation Cayenne. But it isn't about to stop there.
The latest intel coming in from overseas suggests that Porsche is in the advanced stages of designing a slant-back, five-door Cayenne coupe to take on the likes of the BMW X6 and upcoming Mercedes-Benz MLC. Though the business case (however solid BMW may have already demonstrated it to be) is still being considered, if approved it would join the upcoming third-generation Cayenne on the production line in Leipzig as early as 2018 - a year after the new Cayenne itself is expected to arrive.
The Cayenne coupe would share much with the more conventional MkIII Cayenne (and for that matter the next Audi Q7 and VW Touareg as well as the Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Falcon) but differentiate itself with a more stylish (if less practical) roofline and an altogether sportier attitude. Autocar reports that the design calls for tauter sheetmetal and sportier cabin inspired by the 918 Spyder. Pricing would be positioned a good 15-20 percent higher than the regular Cayenne, and the "coupe" version would likely be offered with most, if not all of the engines available in the conventional version - including gasoline, diesel, turbo and possibly even hybrid options ranging all the way up to the 550-horsepower Turbo S.
