This is an exceptional, meticulously maintained (receipts) factory original 964 Cabriolet C4 5 sp.
It is completely original with spectacular guards red paint. The car has never had any accidents or any kind of paint touch up, not even the bumpers have needed to be touched up. The underside and inner fenders are as clean as the rest of the car (photos).there are no scraps or dings on the underside floor pan and the car still has the plastic engine shield that is usually taken off and lost.
New tires 500 miles ago, new top from Porsche as the plastic rear window was starting to yellow and I don't like the look of a repair job so a complete new top was installed. Power top functions perfectly and seals tight. New brakes, rotors and clutch 800 miles ago (receipts).
This car has only seen 10000miles in the last 16 years. No drips, leaks or oil sweat no matter how long the car is parked. No modifications or aftermarket parts, everything used was OEM Porsche, only item not factory is the Kenwood CD player and it was installed with no extra wires, cutting or speakers, easily removed. All electrics work, no marks on the glass, all rubber is supple and in new condition. Panel fit is perfect for doors, trunk and engine lid. Lots of records, books, never used tool kit, spare and compressor. No road rash.

The mid-engine Porsche backstory

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 11:58:00 EST

As an automaker's identity evolves over years, its signature becomes defined by any number of factors - heritage (Mercedes-Benz), image (Lamborghini), or market share (Toyota). In the case of Porsche, it was an engineering quirk that forged the German company's most enduring character trait.
Porsche would not have survived - let alone, thrived - in today's saturated landscape had it not been for the 911, and that slope-tailed sports car wouldn't have sprung to life without its predecessor, the 356. While phenomenal success of those rear-engine icons built the company, forays into the mid-engine configuration have played a significant part in establishing the brand's identity.

Porsche unlocks secrets of its mid-engine 911

Fri, 23 May 2014 15:01:00 EST

Porsche is beginning to realize that it's sitting on a goldmine of automotive history with its secret vault full of rare cars. Autoblog toured it a few months ago, and we were amazed at all of the curiosities hidden inside. Now, it's starting to let more folks in thanks to a new series of YouTube videos. The first covered the 965 prototype that shoved a water-cooled, Audi V8 into one of its cars. Next up, a mid-engine 911 that acted as the powertrain test mule for the Boxster.
The Porsche 911 is inextricably linked to its rear-engine layout. They go together like peanut butter and jelly. However, at the time Porsche was developing the Boxster, the company didn't want to lay all of its cards out of the table during testing. As opposed to using camouflage, it put a whole different car on top. The prototype looked just like any other 911 Targa of the day, but the biggest giveaway that something was amiss was the heavily tinted rear window. By obscuring it, inquisitive journalists couldn't peak at the new engine that replaced the backseat.
It might not look like anything too important on the outside, but this is a major piece of Porsche Boxster history underneath. Scroll down to watch the video about this fascinating prototype.

Auto journalist ordered to pay big money for blowing up Porsche 917 engine [UPDATE]

Tue, 22 Jan 2013 09:32:00 EST

Racecars blow engines all the time, but a Porsche 917 isn't just a run-of-the-mill racecar. British automotive writer Mark Hales reportedly borrowed a 917 from 82-year-old former Formula One racer David Piper for a magazine article, and mechanical tragedy ensued. Nobody is arguing that the engine failed after being spun to 8,200 rpm. However, Hales was warned not to exceed 7,000 rpm, says owner Piper, and the affair landed in English courts with Piper seeking £50,000 - over $79,000 US - in reimbursement funds for an engine rebuild and loss of use of the car while it was being repaired. Judge Simon Brown ruled in favor of car owner Piper, putting Hales on the hook for £110,000 ($174,000) including legal fees - a whole lot of money in any language.
Hales says the Porsche suffered a mechanical fault while lapping that allowed it to slip out of gear and over-rev. Piper wasn't convinced, and sought to have the repair paid for by the guy who broke the racer, saying "If you bend it, you mend it." It's not like Hales is a novice driver, having seat time in both professional and amateur races over 30 years, notching about 150 wins, but even the best drivers sometimes miss a shift, and that's what Piper contended happened to his car.
According to reports, Hales has had to sell most of his valuables to pay his lawyers and is now facing bankruptcy with the ruling against him. Members of the Pistonheads website are trying to coordinate a collection to help him out, as well.
