1988 Porsche 911 on 2040-cars
Hudson, Florida, United States
Feel free to ask me any questions about the car : email@example.com .
A beautiful, well maintained, air cooled 911. No accident history. All panels appear to be original paint. Targa top is
in great condition, fits tight and the liner looks like new. All 4 wheels are OEM Fuchs in great shape with
factory wheel locks and no curb rash or damage, and are shod with matching Michelin tires that have 8/32's or more
tread remaing. The car runs and drives great with correct oil pressure at all engine temps and rpm. Transmission
shifts smoothly and the clutch engages correctly with not chattering or slack. A/C is ice cold. Engine is dry and
looks great. All engine fittings look like new. Porsche tool kit, manuals (not original to car), factory car
cover and certificate of authenticity all present. Comes with factory key with working light plus an extra metal
key and the original wheel lock key. Cruise control is not currently working due to the cable end coming off. I
have ordered a new cable and it will come with the car. Everything else works as it should. Updated stereo and
speakers. Original radio is not present. Car was shipped from California to me and arrived without the service
record folder. I have duplicated some of the recent records with help from the previous owner, Brumos Porsche and
Suttgart Service of Williamsburg, Va and am waiting for additional records to arrive. I have the records I
received scanned and can provide on request. Dashboard has 4 cracks. They were difficult to photograph through
the windshield due to the reflection. If the car is purchased at or above the buy it now price, I will have the
dashboard recovered in factory correct vinyl or give the purchaser a $600 credit off of the final price to deal
with the dash as he or she may prefer.

The sixth edition of the Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards have crowned a wide range of winners - in a couple of cases the recipient of the laurels might say more about KBB users than they do about the actual winner. Compiled from the responses of more than 12,000 shoppers on KBB.com over the past year, there are 13 categories broken into non-luxury, luxury and truck segments "representing the combined wisdom of the American car-buying public."
The award categories have been revamped this year, with some dropping off, some new ones appearing and at least one other given a new term. What isn't surprising is that Honda won Most Trusted Brand for the second year running, Best Value Brand for the third year in a row and took Best Overall Brand, which wasn't on last year's list of awards.
On our own shores, in the non-luxury categories Chrysler got Most Refined Brand and Buick took Best Value Luxury Brand. Neither one of those marques won anything in last year's Brand Image Awards, while Cadillac, which won Best Interior Design Brand and Best Comfort Brand last year - those awards disappeared this year - went home without a single accolade.
Will Roegge has turned his camera on Jeff Zwart and provided another gem, this time documenting Zwart's run up Pikes Peak and BBI Autosport. Bertim Besha dropped out of high school, then worked his way up to founding his own shop, BBI, that gathers a crew of tuners who are just as fastidious about their work as the customers are about their cars.
They prepped the 991-series Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Turbo, the product of combining a 911 GT2 that was the most powerful car Zwart drove up the mountain with a GT3 Cup that Zwart thought had the best handling. Two TiAL turbos and a lot of fettling make for a 3.8-liter flat-six with 700 horsepower, 700 pound-feet of torque and a 7,800-rpm redline. Zwart drove it to a heartbreaking second place this year, finishing less than 1.2 seconds behind the Time Attack 1 class winner when his car suffered its first mechanical issue of the week.
The first video below covers Besha, BBI and the build, the second is Zwart's run. As if the visuals weren't enough, sit back and enjoy the shrieking of the "Hill Climb Special," which is what the constellation Sirius would sound like if it could bark.
Porsche had a lot to crow about at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week. Not only did it debut the new 50 Years edition and Turbo versions of the 911 and the new hybrid and diesel versions of the Panamera, but while unveiling the final production version of the new 918 Spyder, it revealed the record lap it set around the Nürburgring.
The 918 Spyder's 6:57 lap time makes it the fastest street-legal production car ever to lap the Nordschleife and the first to break the seven-minute barrier. But the driver who clocked the time thinks it can go even faster.
That driver was Marc Lieb, who has won the Nürburgring 24-hour race four times, making him something of an expert on the subject. In speaking with Australia's Drive TV, Lieb suggested that they could get even more out of the car, as you can hear for yourself in the video below.
