1977 Porsche 911 S on 2040-cars

Year:1977 Mileage:205000

Green Mountain Falls, Colorado, United States

Green Mountain Falls, Colorado, United States

 I am offering a 1977 Porsche 911 S with a currently non-running engine. As the second owner, I have driven this car for the last 15 years. Very recently, (May 2014), the oil pump ceased to function. As an educated guess, the oil pressure relief valve probably failed. Of course, the actual cause can only be verified by a teardown of the engine. The engine was completely rebuilt before I bought the car in April 2000.

The car itself is in excellent mechanical and physical condition. It has never been in an accident and is completely rust free – never having been out of Colorado’s very dry climate. It has been repainted ($5,000) in a Jaguar maroon red metallic color. Its appearance is flawless except for the inevitable small dings on the hood. It was always a daily driver but practically never driven in rain or snow and always garaged.

Oil changes were always performed with synthetics. The clutch assembly and the transmission (SWEPCO 201) are both in excellent shape.  This makes it possible to put the car immediately on the road with only an engine or long block swap.

Included with car:

- Original tool kit

- Full size spare tire (instead of the inflatable one)

- Several Porsche manuals (listed below)

1.    Original Porsche Owner’s Manual

2.    How to Rebuild and Modify Porsche 911 Engines ’65 – ’89 (Wayne R. Dempsey)

3.    101 Projects for Your 911 (Wayne R. Dempsey)

4.    Porsche 911 SC Service Manual ’78 – ’83 (Bentley Publishers )

5.    Porsche 911 Automotive Repair Manual ’65 – ’83 (Haynes)

6.    Porsche 911 Owners Workshop Manual 911 ’64 – ’73 (Autobooks)

7.    Autofocus Porsche 911 History (Richard A. Lentinello)

8.    Official Service Guide-Mounting Instructions for the 912 Engine (Porsche KG)

9.    Haynes Restoration Manual Porsche 911 (’63-’87)

Noted Porsche collector Magnus Walker learns what a TED Talk is firsthand

Wed, 23 Jul 2014

Porsche collector Magnus Walker has the name and looks of a Viking, but once he starts talking about his life story and what drives him, he's an absolutely fascinating guy. Walker recently gave a Ted Talk at a Tedx conference at UCLA and claimed he didn't really understand the idea behind the speeches. You would never know it, though. Walker is as gifted a speaker as he is a talented restorer of some seriously cool Porsches.
Walker's talk is titled "Go with Your Gut Feeling," and it amounts to his autobiography. He recounts his birth in England, dropping out of school at 15 and moving to the US at 19. Once in Los Angeles, he started selling second-hand clothes and grew it into a fashion business.
Of course, what makes him interesting to us is his passion for Porsches. He fell in love with them when he saw a white 911 as a child at the Earl's Court Motor Show in England, but Walker waited until the '90s to buy his first one. From there he started racing and eventually restoring them. Since the documentary Urban Outlaw about him was released, Magnus has become famous for the love of the brand.

Porsche celebrates Le Mans return with Martini edition 911

Tue, 10 Jun 2014

If we've said it once, we've said it a hundred times - but we'll gladly say it again: there are few racing liveries as iconic as Martini. And while those stripes have adorned countless Lancia and Ford rally cars, grand prix racers (like the latest Williams) and even speedboats, they remain inexorably tied to Porsche. Fortunately that point is not lost on Porsche itself, which has lately put them on its own 918 Spyder, race-spec 911 and all manner of merchandise. And this is the latest.
To celebrate its return to Le Mans this year, Porsche Exclusive is offering this special Martini Racing Edition. It's based on the 911 Carrera S, which means the more potent 3.8-liter flat six with 400 horsepower, but upgrades, as you might have guessed, with a whole mess of Martini Racing stripes and logos, along with the Aerokit Cup front and rear spoilers. The badges and stripes abound inside as well, where you'll also find such optional extras as the Porsche Communication Management system, Bose audio and black leather electric sport seats.
Porsche is offering the 911 Carrera S Martini Racing Edition in either white or black, but unfortunately not in our market - just in Europe, China and Latin America. Those who miss out will (in certain markets anyway) be able to order the decal set separately though. Feel free to read more in the press release below.

2012 TechArt Porsche 911 is visually dazzling, both inside and out

Wed, 07 Mar 2012

One way to ensure that your brand-new Porsche 911 (a.k.a. 991) won't look like the one in your neighbor's driveway is to give TechArt a call. The famed German tuner has rolled out its version of the latest Carrera and Carrera S at the Geneva Motor Show and trust us, it won't be mistaken for anything from the factory in Stuttgart.
Up front, TechArt has fitted its own unique two-part spoiler with integrated splitter while more aggressive side skirts adorn the rocker panels. The rear has a new lower diffuser, wrapped around the TechArt exhaust, and a large fixed rear wing (complete with an integrated third brake light). Look more closely to notice the subtle trim panels on the exterior mirrors and front headlights. The wheels are lightweight forged 20- and 21-inch alloys with matching paint on their rims.
Inside the heavily modified cabin are even more drastic enhancements (let's say TechArt has gone over the top). Don't let the aluminum pedals be a distraction as you inspect the black Alcantara and high-grade leather covering nearly every square inch. Flirting with gaudy, the dark upholstery is contrasted by vehicle-color-coordinated stitching and painted trim splashed throughout. However, the icing on the cake is an insanely thick TechArt three-spoke sports steering wheel.
