1981 Porsche 911SC Targa - Enthusiast Owned - 61,381 Miles - Dozens of Photos

This beautiful 1981 Porsche 911SC is part of a 60+ car private collection in Austin, Texas.

I acquired this car from an enthusiast in the northeast who had purchased this car out of Florida as his "dream
car" but was forced to sell it because he was starting a business. The mileage of 61,381 is original and documented
by multiple Carfax and Autocheck records as well as the Massachusetts title dated 11/06/2009 and verifying 58,507
"actual miles". Under my ownership the car has been stored in a private facility in Austin, TX sharing space with
other collector cars from Porsche, Ferrari, Lotus and Aston Martin while being driven less than 200 miles in the
last three years.

When I bought this car, I was looking for a clean, mechanically sound driver to use as a base for a hotrod build.
Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately?) as air cooled 911's continue to climb in value I don't have the heart to
customize such an original car. I would not hesitate to drive this car across the country tomorrow. Along the way,
I'd make sure to stop by a few tracks just for fun. I hope whoever buys this car does exactly that because this car
deserves it. It's a great car that deserves to be driven.

The car starts, stops and drives exactly as you would expect from a car with this low mileage. It pulls hard and
revs smoothly and the 915 transmission shifts as it should with no grinding or other odd noises. The clutch is
strong and the car brakes easily and in a straight line. There are no oil leaks or smoking from the engine. The car
shows no signs of prior accident repair and is 100% rust free and as solid its low mileage suggests. Everything in
the car works as it should - lights, switches, wipers, gauges, everything. The car is numbers-matching.

When I received the car I was unhappy with the shifting of the 915 transmission. Accordingly, I took the car to the
Porsche specialists at TPWS in Austin, TX and spent $5,796.19 having the transmission rebuilt and a new clutch,
flywheel and ring gear installed. The result is a car that shifts and drives like the day it came from the factory.
The car has been driven less than 200 miles since this work was completed and service records of the work performed
are included with the car.

I haven't charged the AC system and it's currently not functioning although it was blowing cold when the car came
to me from the previous owner. All components of the system are intact and I have no reason to believe it wouldn't
function as intended after a service and charge.

The Dunlop tires show excellent tread.

While I have only driven this car less than 200 miles since I acquired it, I can honestly say that this car is
among the best-driving vintage 911's I've ever owned. Every time I take it out it exceeds my expectations. It will
yours as well.

From every angle, the car presents beautifully in its original factory black color. The car was previously painted
and the high-quality, professional respray is glossy and beautiful without dents or door dings. If you've ever
heard good cars described as "10-footers", then this car is a 5-footer with a ton of eye-appeal, outstanding
details, and excellent gaps. The paint, while no longer brand new, is still very nice with only light patina
including the usual handful of rock chips on the hood and nose of the car. The original finish was preserved in the
trunk, engine compartment and door jams and the factory VIN sticker and assorted decals are all intact. I'm finicky
about my cars and I'd rate the paint on this car an 8 out of 10. If you're looking for a great car that you can
drive every day without worry, and that will look great while you're doing it, this car is for you.

Porsche becomes first company to rent out Vatican's Sistine Chapel

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 18:31:00 EST

We wouldn't go so far as to say God is a Porsche fan, but those in charge of one of the holiest Christian spots on our little blue marble are welcoming the German automaker into one of the religion's most revered and beautiful settings - the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. In so doing, Porsche will reportedly become the first company to rent out the holy hall for a corporate function.
Now, it's not like Pope Francis has signed off on Porsche doing do donuts in a 911 underneath Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam. Instead, the Vatican has rented out the home of the Papal Conclave to the Porsche Travel Club, which will host a classical music concert. The Travel Club organizes events and tours across Europe for Porsche enthusiasts, with the Vatican concert just one part of a tour of Rome.
According to Automotive News Europe, Porsche will sell 40 tickets - at 5,000 euros each ($6,379) - to the event, while the Vatican has confirmed that the Pope will not be in attendance.

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

Fri, 19 Jul 2013 11:57:00 EST

I don't care who you are; when a new Porsche 911 rolls up in your driveway, that's a pretty good day. This was my very first experience with Porsche's 991 911, and after having spent time with just about every tune and trim of the last car, I was hotly anticipating comparing and contrasting.
Somehow (I don't remember sending out any cash-filled, unmarked envelopes) I'd scored a week in the 911 Carrera 4S over a long holiday weekend, too. That meant that I'd get to A) log a ton of miles in one of the best cars in the world, B) get to show-off the Porsche to family and friends and C) tempt cops in three states to pull me over. Good thing I've got the Autoblog traffic lawyer on speed dial...
Driving Notes

Mark Webber treats Maria Sharapova to a Porsche 918 Spyder joyride

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 14:58:00 EST

We don't much like Mark Webber right now. Part of being a racing driver is dealing with promotional stuff. It's not hard to find a driver that can't stand all this nonsense, whether it be promoting a product, meeting investors or attending some obscure event. Even a driver of Webber's caliber - a former Formula One driver for Red Bull Racing and a member of Porsche's factory Le Mans team - has to serve his time at the promo events.
Somehow, though, we don't think the Aussie driver minds this particular promo detail. In the video below, Webber attends the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. He then takes tennis superstar Maria Sharapova out for a spin behind the wheel of the Porsche 918 Spyder. The level of jealousy at the Autoblog office is palpable.
Take a look below for the video. And as we're super jealous of Mr. Webber, hop into Comments and caption the above photo based on what you think he's saying to Maria. Bonus points if you can work "vegemite" into the caption.
