1985 Porsche 944 Base Coupe 2-door Sbc 350 V8 on 2040-cars

Year:1985 Mileage:118632
Location:

Seekonk, Massachusetts, United States

Seekonk, Massachusetts, United States

944 Hatchback with 350 CI small block Chevrolet.  Lakewood bellhousing, Texas Renegades motor mount kit, Porsche 944 5 speed transaxle.  
Good body with minor nicks and dings and fair paint.  Nice interior, good daily driver.  NOT equipped to do burnouts, but much quicker than any non turbo 944.
The bad stuff:  I had to eliminate the power brakes.  Stops well, but requires more pressure on the pedal.  
Texas Renegades suggests an LS1 conversion.  I went with the small block Gen 1 engine because it was available.  Carburated.  
More pics available.

Vehicle is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end listing pending local sale.

Porsche 911 RSR stops just long enough to have its photo taken

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 12:01:00 EST

When it comes to Porsche and its rapidly escalating endurance racing program, all eyes may be on the new 919 Hybrid - and with good reason: that's the vehicle with which Porsche will be challenging the likes of Audi and Toyota for wins in the top-tier LMP1 class of the FIA World Endurance Championship and at Le Mans. But it's the 911 RSR that does and will continue to form the backbone of the factory's effort.
The 470-horsepower racing version of the road-going 911 took a one-two finish in its class at Le Mans last year, and also won its class at the Daytona 24 this past January as well. This year Porsche will field two of them in the WEC, another two in the United SportsCar Championship here in the US and will sell countless more to customer racing teams that will undoubtedly continue to rack up trophies in racing series around the world. This, then, might be a unique chance to see one standing still. Check it out in our gallery of live images above from the Geneva Motor Show.

Watch Carrera Cup driver Connor de Phillippi's first lap of the N"urburgring

Thu, 23 May 2013 12:46:00 EST

American race driver Connor de Phillippi was recently added to the roster of Porsche Juniors, the arm of Porsche's factory racing program that develops new talent. The 20-year-old is contesting the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland series with FÖRCH Racing by Lukas Motorsport, and last weekend, he raced the series round at the Nürburgring. Starting 15th on the grid, de Phillippi would cross the line in ninth out of 32 finishers.
Courtesy of his in-car camera, you can watch his entire first lap in the video below - there's no music added, just engine whine during nine minutes of crests, turns, bumpy straights and that wicked Carousel. Enjoy.

NYT profiles Blue Nelson, a reclusive and interesting CA car collector

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 17:01:00 EST

If it weren't for his Dale Earnhardt Sr. looks, Blue Nelson could be one one of those soft-spoken, nondescript guys whom you meet briefly and never learn much more about. However, as The New York Times shows in a recent profile and video, behind closed doors, Nelson keeps a fascinatingly eclectic collection of automotive oddities and vintage bicycles.
While his main career is in the movie industry, Nelson's other job is as a car hunter. He takes on clients searching for a specific model and helps them find and restore the dream vehicle that they're after. Hiring him takes some dedication, though, because Nelson doesn't advertise his services. "If people want to find me, they know how to find me," he says in the video.
Beyond being an automotive private detective, Nelson has a fantastically varied collection of vehicles of his own. He likes to have models that people don't usually see, and his garage holds a classic Chrysler New Yorker and an extremely rare Rometsch convertible. Although, the one that means the most to him is the 1962 Porsche 356 convertible that Blue came home in as a baby. Check out the video to learn more about Nelson and his philosophy about forming a bond with a car.
