Presenting a 1977 Porsche 911S Targa in excellent condition This car was beautifully painted in 1991 to the remarkable Porsche Continental Orange color. The paint presents well from any distance. The original color was Talbot yellow, but Continental Orange was offered for this car in 1977. The re-paint involved a complete glass-out, engine-out process, and the result is a stunningly clear and clean finish, even in the engine and trunk compartments, and door jambs. Most of the body rubber on the car appears new or is new. There are a few small paint chips that were quoted at approximately $200-$300 to professionally repair. The body is super straight except for one shallow and not very noticeable dent on the driverís side cowl just below the windshield (see pics). The Targa top was completely and professionally restored in 2013, with the period correct German vinyl, by Targa top expert Dan Petchel, at a cost of $1,175.This car is vin number 9117212427 and engine number 6274833. Mileage showing is 66,950. There is no paper trail to document the miles; however, the previous seller, who is a collector of Porscheís, represented the mileage as accurate.This engine has had all of the appropriate upgrades including Carrera tensioners and valve covers, pop off valve in the air box, 11-blade fan (genuine Porsche), and beautiful stainless steel heat exchangers.

NHTSA closes probe into 2011 Porsche 911 coolant leaks

Thu, 13 Mar 2014

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced that it will end its investigation into rapid coolant loss in 24,635 Porsche 911s built between 2001 and 2011. The models affected included the standard 911, GT2, GT3 and Turbo, as well as their variants (GT2 RS, GT3 RS and Turbo S).
NHTSA was investigating for "rapid coolant loss caused by coolant pipe-fitting failure, allegedly resulting in vehicle disablement and/or loss of vehicle control due to reduced traction for the affected vehicle or following traffic," according to the regulators website. "Most of the leak complaints did not appear to involve complete separation of the fittings and many were detected when the vehicle was parked," said NHTSA's statement.
There were 63 complaints and 336 warranty claims, although the investigation was initiated after ten complaints from customers. There have been no reports of crashes or injuries attributed to rapid coolant loss.

Jack Olsen built one Porsche to do it all

Wed, 23 Jan 2013

Jack Olsen has built himself a lair called the 12-Gauge Garage, and inside that garage he built a lairy Porsche 911 nicknamed Black Beauty II. Although it looks like one of Stuttgart's models from the sixties or seventies, it is actually four decades of 911 gubbins from 1965 to 2000 thrown under one shell: the lightweight body is from 1972, the transaxle from 1977, the brakes from a 1986 Turbo, the engine from 1995, for example. It weighs 2,400 pounds and it's got 272 horsepower to get it going, but it's still a pure Porsche, Olsen saying, "If you stop thinking about what you're doing, it will remind you in very abrupt ways."
Olsen said the real point has been to have one car that does it all, so he does everything in his 911 from neighborhood runs to 7-11 to track racing - he loads the aero bits in the car and bolts them on trackside. And he says he'll never stop tweaking the suspension.
You can watch and hear the rest in Olsen's words in the video below.

Roger Rodas' widow suing Porsche over Carrera GT crash

Tue, 13 May 2014


Investigations undertaken by local law enforcement may have vindicated Porsche from any wrongdoing in the crash that killed actor Paul Walker and racing driver Roger Rodas last year, but the latter's widow is apparently not convinced. According to emerging reports, Kristine Rodas has filed a lawsuit seeking unspecified damages from Porsche Cars North America.
In her suit filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court, Rodas' attorney Mark Geragos reportedly disputes the findings of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, which asserted that the vehicle was traveling at an unsafe speed of 90 miles per hour on city streets, identifying the speed as the cause of the accident. Instead the lawsuit claims that the vehicle was only going 55 mph and that the cause of the crash was improper equipment - namely a faulty right rear suspension and the lack of a crash cage and proper fuel tank.
