1984 Porsche 911 on 2040-cars
Flanagan, Illinois, United States
1984 Carrera 3.2L Flachbau w/ RUF Package
This car is extremely well done
- inside and out with all OEM parts throughout. All seals and trim are in excellent condition still. Tread on the
tires have about 90% left in them. Speedline RUF wheels. Everything on this car works as it should. It has a very
cool pop up headlight setup (see video). G50 transmission with the 3.2L. This car has an extremely well done
valve job. I've owned quite a few air cooled 911s over the years but this one is by far the fastest one.
Extremely fast with an incredible sound! Gets attention everywhere it goes. A real joy to drive. You can not beat
the air cooled Porsche - it is still the most enjoyable driving experience out there by far.
Now here is unfortunately and downside to the car: Even though it is strictly cosmetic, the car was keyed 2 yrs
ago by some low life who had nothing better to do with his time then do this to the car. the pics you see were
taken today and the key marks are not too noticeable but the car has not been repainted since the incident. you
really don't see it until you look for it on the car but it is still noticeable. there are also two bubbles on the
paint on one side of the rear bear claw vent ( very common along the bear claw vents), there is another bubble on
the drivers side front quarter next to the pop light. the intent was to repaint the car after it had been keyed
but I never got around to it and have kept it on the road. Outside of this there is no rust on the car elsewhere.
It does need repainting though. Please look at the high resolution pics closely and you can see what I'm
referring to. there is also some road rash on the lower fairing from highway driving,
So all in all, this is an excellent machine that has always been well maintained and stored in a heated garage. I
have a lot of the service history of the car rom the pevious owner and as well as my past maintenance and will
provide to the future buyer.

"Because" might be a good response to our headline, but as a vintage (purists might call 'proper') Porsche 911 is hardly cheap, we suspect you'll need a better explanation than that. Enter Drive editor Mike Spinelli.
Spinelli sits down with Zac Moseley and Mick Prichinello from Classic Car Club Manhattan to first explain why the market for old, air-cooled 911s has gotten so hot over the past few years, and to discuss if it's a bubble that's about to burst. Following that, this video is really is just three guys sitting around talking about old Porsches for 35 minutes. Which, you know, we're pretty onboard with.
Scroll down and have a look at the latest episode of After/Drive, from Drive.
At this point, you'd think we'd know all there is to know about the 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder - except what it's like to drive - but Porsche has released a new video giving us a more in-depth look at its new plug-in hypercar all the same. The animated video gives us numerous cutaway looks at the 918 Spyder while giving a visual demonstration of the car's four hybrid driving modes.
Though nowhere near as exciting as watching the 918 blast around the Nürburgring in record time, this new video is nonetheless both interesting and informative. Scroll down to watch the video yourself, and be sure to check out our live gallery of the production version of the car along with a stock gallery.
The misinformation first started back in May of 2007 - more than six years ago - when word came that Porsche was developing a compact utility vehicle to fill out its product line. Rumors swirled that the German automaker's future "Roxster" would be based on the then-upcoming Audi Q5. By September of 2010, the name had changed to "Cajun," but the vehicle was still expected to be "based heavily on the Audi Q5," said reports in the months that followed. One year later, the first test mules were spotted, the mechanics hidden beneath barely disguised Audi sheetmetal, which did nothing to give the upcoming model its own identity. And even after Porsche announced "Macan" as the vehicle's production name in early 2012, articles stated that it would "arrive on the same chassis as the Audi Q5, though with suspension, brake and engine tweaks suitable to the Porsche range."
It's no wonder that most still consider the all-new Porsche Macan nothing more than a heavily massaged Q5.
To help lift some of the mystery surrounding its latest release, Porsche hosted us in Germany for an in-depth look at its new crossover (while Europeans call it a "sport utility," its car platform allows us to call it a proper CUV). The technology workshop offered us insight to the design and mechanical execution, and it concluded with a short test ride. The trip was both enlightening and educational - and it left us with a whole new perspective on the Macan.
