Here for your consideration is a 1988 Porsche 944. This beauty has the original paint in midnight blue color. This auto is 25 years old but the previous owners have given her tender loving care and it definately shows. This car has near perfect paint with a few light scratches and very,very, minor dings. Every exterior light works with no broken or cracked covers. The tires are almost brand new and the wheels are perfect. Exterior wise you will be hard pressed to find a 944 in this good of condition that has not been repainted.
The interior is all original with the exception of the racing seats and steering wheel and new carpet has been installed. Every single electronic works perfectly including the gauges with the exception of the rear windshield wiper. The dash has a few very light cracks in it but are hardly noticeable. Interior wise the only thing left to do is the headliner. It is fine with no tears but needs reglueing and situated around the sunroof.
I have saved the best for last. The engine and transmission are in perfect condition. This baby runs strong and smooth with absolutely no leaks anywhere. The entire engine was gone through by the previous owner and Euroasian and he had planned to finish the restoration of the rest of the car but simply could not afford to finish. This car is tight and handles superbly with no rattles and such. The odometer is not working but once you see and drive this auto then I am sure that you will agree that it really does not matter because it is clearly evident that this auto is solid, sound, and totally ready for your driving pleasure.
Folks you can look long and hard to find another 944 in comparible condition but be prepared to pay a premium price. This car is a head turner and is a joy to drive. With a little more time and money this car could be in showroom condition. Mechanically this car is sound and will be something to enjoy while finishing the restoration.
GOOD LUCK BIDDING! Call me at 662-574-3147 with any questions. Dan
Rod Emory was the founder of Emory Motorsports in Burbank, CA, and the scion to a family tradition of building "outlaw" Porsches that are almost as cool as the cars themselves. The lovingly modified Porsche 356s are lovely artifacts, and their story, along with the story of their builders, is pitch-perfect for the Petrolicious oeuvre of beloved classics.
Tune in for the history lesson, and then stick around for the car candy.
Still planning on getting your hands on a Porsche 918 Spyder? You'd better act quickly, because word has it that the hybrid hypercar is nearly sold out.
While Porsche has reportedly only delivered a little over 30 of the 918 examples of the Spyder it plans to manufacture in total, Automotive News says that production is sold out through late March or early April - just a few months shy of when production is set to wrap in July.
That's pretty impressive for a car with a base price of almost $850,000, especially one requiring a $200,000 deposit just to get your name on the list. Still, that sum is significantly less than its competitors get for the McLaren P1 or LaFerrari, both of which sell for over a million (if you can actually get on one at that price), though in fairness, production of each is limited to less than half of the 918 Spyder.
Preparing a beachhead in the marketplace for the 2014 Porsche Macan crossover has been a years-long project for the German company. We've been hearing and reporting on rumors of the vehicle from its ideation stage and have covered the Macan's birth thoroughly over the last 12 months, including teasers, rumors, spy shots, leaked videos and more. Now, just ahead of the LA Auto Show-debut of Porsche's first-ever compact crossover, the wait for details is at an end.
Porsche will offer the crossover in two flavors to start: Macan S and Macan Turbo. The S model will be fitted with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that makes 340 horsepower and will push the vehicle from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.2 seconds, then on to a top speed of 156 miles per hour. The Macan Turbo has even more impressive figures on all fronts: an all-new, 400-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine; 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds; top speed of 164 mph. Both models make use of Porsche's seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission as standard.
As impressive as these potent powertrains are the brakes Porsche is fitting to its new crossover. Six-piston monobloc fixed-caliper brakes live up front, grabbing 13.78-inch discs on the S model and tremendous 14.17-inch discs on the Macan Turbo. We're expecting serious stopping performance, to say the least.
