True "barn find". Last licensed in 1989. In storage for 25 years. Car I.D. #119220153. Engine I.D. #6290401. Almost
100% certainty that this is the original engine and transaxle, which I would almost bet have never been out of the
car. Buying the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity is a mute point considering the engine number completely jibes
with the VIN. This car has some surface rust but overall is quite nice. In comparison to most "barn finds", this
one is quite exceptional. Only real rust bubbles are on the lower portion of the right front fender, and even
they're not really bad. Also both headlight buckets on the inner fender side have minor rust in the bottoms of the
bucket, where the wire grommet was located.
This car has the complete air cleaner assembly, including ducting, which was removed to access the engine I.D.
number mounted on the right side of the crank case. Original Fuchs alloys with an alloy spare rim. I have removed
the fuel tank, which was 3/4's full of odiferous fuel. With a seep in a hose, I HAD to get it away from the car!
The fuel tank will most likely need replacing. The car appears to be 100% complete. The interior needs to be
restored. The dash top has no cracks. The head liner is even in good shape with no rips. Sorry no books, records or
The condition of the engine/transmission are unknown. Original miles of 134,300. This car is a great candidate for
a restoration, where the body has very little repairs needed. Original paint color was orange, which for some
reason, it was repainted yellow. The heat exchangers on the engine have pretty much fallen apart and will need to
All the glass is good, trim pieces all there. The wood pedal board is in the front trunk, which needs to be
replaced. I have NOT tried to turn the engine over, as I feel it should be oiled up before doing that.
With the car sitting for 25 years, it simply needs to be dismantled and overhauled. Trying to get it running as is,
would be pointless. I can take pictures of any part of this car. It's available for an inspection.

The Porsche 911 GT3 has always been a favorite among auto journalists and car enthusiasts alike, but with the introduction of the new 991-generation GT3, which is the first GT3 with electric power steering and no manual gearbox option, how does it stack up to the competition from McLaren and Nissan?
Evo's Jethro Bovingdon attempts to answer that question by pitting the rear-engine Porsche against the mid-engine McLaren MP4-12C on a racetrack and the front-engine, all-wheel-drive Nissan GT-R on some amazing, twisty European back roads. We won't give away the victor of either comparison, but we will say that, in Evo's test, the McLaren's 141-horsepower advantage doesn't give it as much of an edge over the Porsche on a racetrack as one might think, and the lack of a manual gearbox and the inclusion of electric power steering on the GT3 isn't detrimental to enjoying the car on a back road.
Watch the video below to find out which car Bovingdon prefers on road and track - we think you'll be happy to see him drift around turns every chance he gets.
Getting a bead on the target that is the so-called Porsche 960 is not easy, as the target keeps moving. First labeled the 960, then the 961, and now back to being called the 960, it is Porsche's take on a supercar specifically aimed at Ferrari - the latest report in Automobile says that Porsche's internal moniker for it is "FeFi," which stands for "Ferrari Fighter." Because it is expected to cost as much as the top-tier V12 Ferrari, Porsche wants the engine solution to justify the price tag. That means, according to author Georg Kacher, a 3.9-liter, quad-turbo flat-eight engine with 650 horsepower.
Last summer, the engine was mooted to be a twin-turbo flat six. A few months later, the rumor was that it would use the 4.6-liter V8 from the 918 and have about 570 horsepower. This new mid-engine configuration would be quite the leap, giving the 960 more power than the 918 Spyder (pictured) and 911 GT2 RS, and utilize other tech features like four adjustable camshafts and "a complex multistage intake manifold." In this scenario, power would be run through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.
Build materials are still slated to be a hodgepodge of materials including aluminum, steel, carbon fiber, titanium and magnesium. The boosted flat-eight, all-wheel drive and a 3,000-pound weight could get the 960 from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds. Since it is looking squarely at Ferrari, the idea that the 960 will be a "four-door coupe" can probably be put to rest. For now.
The 2015 Subaru WRX STI and 2014 Porsche Cayman are both saddled with unfair reputations. The STI with its huge wing and gold wheels has the title of the ultimate boy-racer. On the other hand, Porsche brand snobs look down on he base Cayman as just a wannabe 911. In reality, they are both pretty fantastic performance cars. But what would happen if the two of them lined up at a stoplight, and maybe the guy in the suit in the Cayman started throwing some revs at the young man in the STI? Automobile decided to find out in a recent video pitting the two stereotyped hot rods against each other in a standing-mile drag race.
In terms of raw numbers, they are surprisingly close. Both use flat engines and six-speed manual transmissions here, but the Subaru has more power and torque. However, the Porsche makes up for it with 300 pounds less weight. Neither should have a problem with traction either thanks to the STI's sophisticated all-wheel-drive setup, and the Cayman's mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout.
The comparable specs certainly show themselves in the real world for the race. We're not going to give away the winner here because it's too exciting, but let's just say the finish is very, very close. Scroll down to watch both of them shrug off their stereotypes and show off their real performance.
