1988 Porsche 944 on 2040-cars
Clinton, South Carolina, United States
|944 5-speed sunroof car has been sitting in my garage for years. My intent to make a track car out of it since the body and structure was so nice, rust free and appears that the car has the original paint on all the panels too, no signs of damage or ever being wrecked from my inspections. So, I have come to the realization it's time to make space and move it along.
The car does not currently run. Before listing it, I hooked a battery and jumper cables to the leads, and it will start and run for a short period of time off of starting fluid being sprayed in the throttle body. I suspect the injectors are stuck from sitting or fuel pump not working is my guess. I have not had the car professionally looked at and is just the way I bought it. Most everything electrical seems to work, lights go up and down, windows work, power seat adj work, fan blows, dash lights come on, etc. wipers do not work and windshield is cracked. Brake pedal is solid, bakes work as well as emergency brake, clutch master leaks fluid somewhere around the master or line, not sure but it won't hold fluid for any length of time, I have not tried to bleed clutch either. Gears shift and will engage motor/drivetrain in all gears but that is the extent of my testing. SC DOT bill of sale only, no title. Car is for sale locally in South Carolina so auction is subject to end at any time. Pickup or shipping is at the buyers responsibility, delivery locally or in the upstate of SC may be possible for a fee. Feel to call with any questions, Doug 864 923-1302

Porsche has released official pricing for its entire lineup of 2013 models, which just happens to include the upcoming 918 Spyder hybrid supercar. The 795-horsepower advanced-technology-lab-on-wheels is now officially confirmed to have a starting price of $845,000 in the US, which is the exact amount we were told earlier when we had the opportunity to ride shotgun in some 918 Spyder pre-production test vehicles.

What we didn't know at the time was the cost of the Weissach trim package, which is a high-performance upgrade to the standard vehicle that includes the deletion of some interior amenities and addition of lighter-weight carbon fiber appointments, magnesium wheels, flame-resistant upholstery, racing belts and aerodynamic aids - it's meant for track-going folk who intend to use their 918 Spyders as God, country and manufacturer intended.
All told, the Weissach package should drop the 918 Spyder's curb weight by some 80 pounds, while also lightening your wallet of an additional $84,000 - the car's MSRP with the Weissach package is $929,000. These prices don't, however, include destination charges, which, for something like the very limited edition 918 Spyder (only 918 will be made), could very well cost considerably more than your average Porsche.
Diesel may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Porsche, but in the European market - that vital one which Porsche calls home - diesels are indispensable. Particularly when you're trying to extend beyond niche sports cars and into the mainstream luxury sedan market as Zuffenhausen has with the Panamera. In fact, diesels account for 15 percent of Panamera sales worldwide (even though they're not offered Stateside), so to keep oil-burning customers happy, Porsche has announced a series of upgrades.

Set to be unveiled in the flesh at the fast-approaching Frankfurt Motor Show, the new Panamera Diesel packs 300 horsepower. That's 50 hp (or 20 percent) more than the model it replaces, significantly dropping the 0-62 sprint from 6.8 seconds to 6 flat, and raising top speed from 152 miles per Autobahn-crunching hour to 161. While they were at it, Porsche's engineers also fitted the rear differential with torque vectoring (previously reserved for gasoline-burning models) and retuned the transmission and suspension.
You can delve into the press release below for all the details - including the new model's improved towing capacity! - but the reality, for better or worse, is that the Panamera Diesel isn't offered here. So if you've been celebrating Labor Day (or even Labour Day, for our friends to the north) like we have, don't go looking for it at your local dealer, who will have only a Cayenne Diesel to show you instead.
There's one fewer Porsche 918 Spyder zipping along the roads of Toronto, Canada, today. A fire at a gas station over the weekend claimed one of the hybrid supercars in a massive blaze, and a portion of the inferno was caught on video.
According to our partners to the North at Autoblog Canada, the cause of the fire hasn't been officially confirmed yet, but witnesses reportedly claimed gasoline somehow came into contact with the hot exhaust outlets that exit out of the top of the supercar's engine bay. This was just one of two 918s believed to be in the Toronto area.
Other than a possible broken heart from the owner, the fire reportedly caused no injuries, and only the Porsche and gas pump appeared to sustain serious damage. Warning, the video of the conflagration does contain some explicit language.
