1987 Porsche 911 Carrera on 2040-cars
Hermitage, Tennessee, United States
This car drives out beautifully. I have put about 1500 miles on the car after doing a major service on it (valve adjustment, oil
change, filters, spark plugs), and the car hasn't skipped a beat. Driving the car it is very smooth and tight on
the road. The power comes on smooth and strong without hesitation. Car starts up right away every time. Steering is
very tight and the 911 drives straight and firm. The G50 transmission lives up to its reputation and shifts
flawlessly up and down. Clutch feels great as well and the brakes feel like new. Inside the car, the interior is
still soft and full of life...the AC worked for awhile after it was charged but there seems to be a leak in the
system that is noticeable a week after charge. I can not find any rust on the car. This is an excellent original
car that is just a pleasure to drive. All this....rare colors combined with the well desired G50 transmission make
this late model Carrera a perfect fit for a collector or someone interested in a true classic 911. Details:
Mechanical: -Stock 3.2 which is known as one of Porsche's bulletproof engines. Engine is very strong and smooth. No
known smoke issues other than the typical 911 startup puff. Valves were just adjusted along with oil change, fuel
filter, spark plugs and general oil leaks addressed. Case is sealed up well. The engine has turbo valve covers and
cat bypass pipe as well. Exterior: -Rare color which comes off as a slight purple/blue. It is a metallic known as
Cassis Red from the factory. The paint shines up very well, does not appear to be any rust on the car externally or

Porsche is undoubtedly the most successful manufacturer in sportscar racing, and it's only upping its game. The German marque is launching its new LMP1 racer for Le Mans in pursuit of overall victory once again, and now that sportscar racing in North America is coming together under one banner in the United Sportscar Championship, Porsche has announced it is entering the fray with a works team here as well.
The new Porsche North America racing team will field two cars in the entire inaugural season of the Tudor United Sportscar Championship that's been formed out of the former Grand-Am and American Le Mans Series. The team will be based out of the Porsche Motorsport North America facility in Santa Ana, California, and will partner with three-time ALMS LMPC winners Core Autosport in getting a pair of the latest 911 RSR racecars to the front of the GT Le Mans class.
Drivers have yet to be announced, but are projected to be drawn out of Porsche's factory driver program, which includes such talents as Patrick Long, Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas and Neel Jani. Keep reading below for the official announcement.
We have yet to catch our breath from our first drive of the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3, but if you're still not sold on the fact that this track-ready 911 is only offered with a PDK transmission, then you should take it up with Andreas Preuninger. Preuninger is the guy who led the team responsible for the latest GT3. Porsche has released a video giving a little backstory of what went into the development of the car, which had as its goal the creation of a pure, rewarding 911 driving experience.
The video captures the sights and sounds of the GT3 perfectly. Perhaps the best part is listening to Preuninger describe one of the defining moments that resulted in replacing the GT3's manual gearbox with the PDK. We don't want to ruin the video for you, so scroll down to check it out for yourself.
Thieves carried out what appears to be a movie-script-perfect robbery of a bank in Sydney, Australia early on Friday morning, using two stolen high-performance vehicles in the process.
At around 11:15 AM local time, in near mid-day light, reports say that two men in masks smashed into the side of a Westpac bank in a confirmed-stolen black Porsche Cayenne. The perpetrators were armed with sledgehammers according to witness reports, and took only about five minutes to take what they were after inside of the bank.
The rapid getaway was executed in a Subaru WRX, also confirmed as a stolen vehicle, while witnesses snapped camera phone images of the illicit goings on. One Twitter user posted a few of the images to his social media feed; you can take a look at them in our small gallery below. Follow on down for the full video report, from The Sydney Morning Herald.
