1984 Carrera 3.2L Flachbau w/ RUF Package
This car is extremely well done
- inside and out with all OEM parts throughout. All seals and trim are in excellent condition still. Tread on the
tires have about 90% left in them. Speedline RUF wheels. Everything on this car works as it should. It has a very
cool pop up headlight setup (see video). G50 transmission with the 3.2L. This car has an extremely well done
valve job. I've owned quite a few air cooled 911s over the years but this one is by far the fastest one.
Extremely fast with an incredible sound! Gets attention everywhere it goes. A real joy to drive. You can not beat
the air cooled Porsche - it is still the most enjoyable driving experience out there by far.
Now here is unfortunately and downside to the car: Even though it is strictly cosmetic, the car was keyed 2 yrs
ago by some low life who had nothing better to do with his time then do this to the car. the pics you see were
taken today and the key marks are not too noticeable but the car has not been repainted since the incident. you
really don't see it until you look for it on the car but it is still noticeable. there are also two bubbles on the
paint on one side of the rear bear claw vent ( very common along the bear claw vents), there is another bubble on
the drivers side front quarter next to the pop light. the intent was to repaint the car after it had been keyed
but I never got around to it and have kept it on the road. Outside of this there is no rust on the car elsewhere.
It does need repainting though. Please look at the high resolution pics closely and you can see what I'm
referring to. there is also some road rash on the lower fairing from highway driving,
So all in all, this is an excellent machine that has always been well maintained and stored in a heated garage. I
have a lot of the service history of the car rom the pevious owner and as well as my past maintenance and will
provide to the future buyer.

Petrolicious details why the Porsche 911 is something special

Thu, 26 Sep 2013 12:32:00 EST

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!

Watch Larry Kosilla resurrect the finish of this barn-find 1966 Porsche 912

Thu, 25 Jul 2013 19:31:00 EST

Larry Kosilla, the founder of the Ammo NYC line of car cleaning products, has his own show YouTube's Drive network - we saw his work before when he gave a Ferrari 288 GTO a two-day detailing job. On this episode, Kosilla gets called in to do his best with a 1966 Porsche 912, a car that was last registered in 1990 and recently found in a barn in Connecticut.
Among the expected dirt and cobwebs, the Irish Green Porsche is also covered what is assumed to be cat fur and "waste." The car is in such delicate condition, however, that Kosilla can't wash it for fear of getting more water in it than on it, so he has to steam and wipe the entire thing down before he begins the paint correction process. In addition to the thorough knowledge of his work and his ability to explain it simply, the episode is captioned with further information one of Porsche's popular but less regarded models, and how Kosilla does what he does.
You'll find a compelling 29 minute masterclass in the video below.

Porsche close to fix for 911 GT3 engine fires

Sun, 16 Mar 2014 18:55:00 EST

It looks like 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 drivers might actually get to drive their cars again soon. Reports of fires affecting the track-ready Germans first began about a month ago. Then, a few days later, the automaker confirmed two of the five alleged blazes and said owners shouldn't drive their cars until further notice. Porsche then went so far as to offer to pick up the GT3s and transport them to the nearest dealer until the problem was identified and a fix was found. Finally, there appears to be a repair.
"We know the reason and the problem-solving measures. We're testing them," said Porsche CEO Matthias Müller to Bloomberg. The technical fix will be released to owners shortly.
The recall affects all 785 GT3s that have been sold so far, but there have been no reported injuries caused by the fires. When it first announced the safety campaign, Porsche said: "Internal studies to determine the cause of the engine damage have not been completed yet."
