This is one little bad 1987 Carrera with tasteful mods and some extra power thanks to a upgraded 993 3.6L engine.
This 911 has undergone quite the transformation from stock, this was owned by an enthusiast..
Starting off as a base, straight, rust free g50 coupe the original 3.2 was dropped and replaced by a OBD1 993 3.6L.
Professionally swapped by a engineer, everything works exactly as it should and looks factory, even has ice cold AC with condenser moved to the front! The engine had the top end refreshed before it was installed. Engine remained stock besides the CAI, headers, and a chip.
Starts up perfectly everytime, no leaks or smoke. Sometimes starts a little rich but goes away immediately. Big power difference compared to a stock 3.2, she pulls to about 7400 rpms and screams. Clutch was upgraded when swap was performed, and the transmission shifts into the gears effortlessly.
Cosmetically the goal was to look like a RUF tribute, fitted with genuine RUF front bumper, correct narrow body RUF alloys, RUF wind pillar fillers, aero mirrors, and a iroc style rear bumper. Interior remains mostly original besides color matched das bolt in cage, genuine RUF steering wheel, and color matched gauges.

The world of collector cars is fairly tight-knit when you get down to individual models. Need proof? Just take a look at this latest video from Jay Leno's Garage. The subject is a gorgeous 1963 Porsche 356 Carrera 2. Jay, being known as quite a collector, got a call from someone looking to sell. While doing his due diligence and looking for a 356 expert to go over the car with him, he came across John Willhoit.
Where the story gets weird is when Leno is asked the license plate number - it turns out that Willhoit, owner of Willhoit Restorations, had restored the exact same car more than 30 years prior. He then sold it to the same person that was looking to give it to Leno. What follows is a truly interesting video on the little quirks of the 356, along with Willhoit's personal history on a car he hadn't seen since 1976.
This is a bit more mechanically detailed than Leno's normal videos, but it's on a very interesting subject. Take a look below for the entire film.
"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.
Kelley Blue Book announced its annual Best Resale Value Award winners, and we weren't too surprised to see the list dominated by Japanese automakers - mainly Toyota and Honda. KBB hands out the awards based on the projected residual value of mostly all 2013 model year vehicles, and Toyota skated home with a number of awards including 10 of the 22 overall categories and having five of its products in the top 10 for models with best resale value. KBB's Best Resale Value Awards were announced in the same week as the ALG Residual Value Awards, and there were many similarities between both lists, especially when it came to Toyota.
To come up with its winners, KBB measures depreciation over the first five years of ownership, and looks for the cars it expects to hold its value the best after this time; on average, the report says the 2013 model year vehicles will lose 61.8 percent of its value in five years. Of the 22 categories, 15 slots were filled by Toyota, Honda and Nissan products, while the Camaro and Porsche (Cayenne and Panamera) each took home a pair of awards. If Toyota has anything to be upset about in this list of cars, it's that categories for Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car and Electric Vehicle went to the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Volt, respectively.
The overall top 10 models for the best resale value in 2013 are, in alphabetical order:
