I am downsizing my collection of Porsches.
A 1975 Porsche Carrera Coupe that sold for $ 109.000-
My asking price is $ 69.911- !!!!
The history and development of the Porsche Carrera RS is very well documented,
and needs no further explanation as to the evolution of the early G series, US Carrera Model.
This 1975 Carrera Coupe follows in the wake of itís illustrious predecessor, the 1973 Carrera RS.
This is an original un-molested car, right down to it's original US specification ride height!
The Certificate of Authenticity on hand for this car, shows this to be # 151 of the 395 made for the US market.
The Guards (India) Red/G8 and Black Leatherette/16 colour combination suit this Porsche perfectly,
and is complemented by the fabulous Factory Recaro Sport Seats, Electric Sunroof and Power Windows.
This car stands out as it has the very rare options of the full RS front oil cooler and front RS/Carrera Turbo
alloy brake calipers.
The rear whale tail spoiler, unique to this model, is also found on the early Carrera Turbos.
With 97k original miles, it was time to have it refreshed sympathetically.
The car had a full windows out repaint in itís original Guards Red colour.
The car was delivered to it's original owner, in Arizona, before I brought it into California, so the car is dry
and rust free,
and no rust repairs were needed.
I had the seats re-upholstered, and new carpets installed by my Concourse Award Winning upholsterer.
The original Factory dash is in remarkably fine uncracked original condition.
Mechanically the car is well dialed in, and performs flawlessly.
The original engine, known to be volatile by nature, was replaced early in the carís life with a blank cased 7R
Factory Replacement engine of the correct year and type.
Upon inspection this engine has been overhauled with inserts, and includes the updated Carrera hydraulic
At the same time, the problem causing thermal reactors were removed and a new sports exhaust system installed.
No smog is required for CA.
The private plate does not accompany the car.
This Porsche offered and described here is an honest example of a really nice and well sorted 1975 US Carrera.
It is ready to be used and enjoyed, as is, without further expense.
A delight to drive, all the controls work perfectly, clutch is smooth and gentle, the engine strong and powerful.
This car is eminently suitable and is eligible to enter many of the Classic Rallys and Tours that are currently
available, and gaining in popularity.
I consider this to be a wonderful driver quality Porsche, and it is capable of winning itís class at any
Regional Porsche Club of America Concourse.
The car is titled, licensed and registered in my name, and comes with fresh registration for a year, and is insured

Father-son team grows close by building tuned PorscheMon, 21 Jul 2014
We've seen several heartwarming videos of kids bonding over cars with their parents, whether racing together or giving them as gifts. The story of Leh Keen and his father McGrath, though, is somewhat different. Not many dads are looking for a vehicle quite this mental.
As Leh tells it, his dad saw a video online of one of the wild Porsches from Japanese tuner Rauh-Welt Begriff and decided that he needed one of the creations in his own garage. Since Leh knows something about cars himself as a driver for Alex Job Racing in the United SportsCar Championship, McGrath put his son in charge of managing the build from the company.
When the car made it to the US for completion from Rauh's famed builder Nakai, father and son bonded over the red, widebody 993-platform 911. The final product is certainly eye-catching. Scroll down to watch the video that features not only an engrossing father-son tale but also a seriously wicked, tuned Porsche from one of Japan's finest.
Jay Leno plugs himself into Porsche's 918 SpyderMon, 24 Mar 2014
As one of the greatest sports car manufacturers of all time, when Porsche puts out a new, ultra-exclusive hypercar, enthusiasts tend to stand up and take note. Jay Leno is no exception, and now, the funnyman is finally getting his time with awesome 918 Spyder.
With his 1963 Porsche 356 and his 2005 Carrera GT flanking a Liquid Silver 918, Leno takes us through the basics of this plug-in hybrid roadster alongside Daniel Eastman of Porsche North America. Following the chat, Leno and Eastman take the German-plated car through the streets of California, testing it in a number of modes and even going on a short, all-electric freeway cruise.
If you're looking to learn more about the 918, or to just here its glorious gas engine at work, you'll want to scroll down and take a look at the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage.
Audi outlasts rivals to win 13th Le Mans titleSun, 15 Jun 2014
As is so often the case, the 2014 Le Mans was a war of attrition, and Audi managed to prevail once again after all 24 hours had been recorded in the history books, with its Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro claiming first and second places, followed by Toyota in third. Drivers Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer and Benoit Treluyer inherited the lead in their No. 2 Audi after the No. 7 Toyota, driven by pole-sitter Kazuki Nakajima, was forced to retire with electrical problems in the 15th hour.
The No. 2 Audi led the race until it was forced to the pits to replace a turbocharger in the 17th hour, allowing the No. 1 Audi, driven by Lucas di Grassi, Marc Gene (who was a last-minute replacement for Loic Duval, who crashed hard during practice) and defending champion Tom Kristensen, led the race until the 21st hour, when it too had to pit with turbocharger issues. This gave the No. 20 Porsche of Timo Bernhard, Brendon Hartley, and Mark Webber the lead until it was forced off the track with gearbox problems, eventually finishing in 38th position.
In LMP2, the Jota Sport Zytek Z11SN-Nissan driven by Simon Dolan, Harry Tincknell and Oliver Turvey claimed victory, the first five LMP2 finishers all powered by Nissan. Down a level in GTE-Pro, No. 51 AF Corse Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 driven by Gianmaria Bruni, Toni Vilander and Giancarlo Fisichella finished one lap ahead of the leading Corvette Racing C7.R. And finally, the No. 95 Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE driven by Kristian Poulsen, David HeinemeierHansson and Nicki Thiim won the GTE-Am race two laps ahead of a Proton Porsche 911 GT3 RSR.
