Hello, I'm here to list my pride and joy, a 1982 Porsche 928. First off, let me disclose that I don't need to sell it, and I'm seeing if anybody has any genuine interest in it. The previous owner had it for 13 years, and kept all of his receipts and records, and I have done the same. It runs and drives perfectly, and is the perfect Sunday driver. This car has come from a meticulous (not first time either) Porsche owner that makes sure all preventitive maintenance is done, and the car is preforming as it should (regular oil changes and washes/polishes/waxes) The car drives VERY straight, and is in almost perfect mechanical condition. The car looks as it should, if not better for a 32 year old "regularly driven" car. The doors close tight, and the joints meet up as they should. I easily have over 10k in receipts from the previous owner, not to mention the money that I just put in it (as listed below). We don't have emissions in Indiana, so I couldn't tell you if it'd pass, but it has in the past so i don't know why it wouldn't. 
The good:
New Tires ($1000) *On Stanced and Staggered "PhoneDial" rims that have recently been powder coated with very few imperfections (Picture has the tread... Under 100 miles.)
New Authentic Sparco Racing Seats ($1000)
New Sparco Steering Wheel and MOMO hub ($320)
New Timing Belt, Spark Plugs, and Wires ($1500)
Speaker Setup ($400)
Awesome Classic Porsche in Great Mechanical (-Priceless-) Condition
I kept it in a heated garage throughout the harsh winter this year too.
All of the electric components work, except for cruise control.
The bad:
The sunroof doesn't work, but the motor for it does. (Needs a new cable)
Dash is cracked, and some of the leather has shrunk. (Picture 6)
The odometer stopped working about 5k miles ago.
There is some weird scaling on part of the paint. (Left rear quarter panel-in picture 6)
There are some very small paint chips, and rust spots, but it is still very clean!  (Picture 8)
Missing a piece on the front bumper. (Picture 7)
Bad O2 sensor causing a light to turn on, which is easily dismissed with a simple touch.
If you put new leather all around (which I'm planning on doing if this doesn't sell) it will be better than new with the seats and steering wheel.
Feel free to email, call, or text about any questions you may have. Thanks again :)

China bans military license plates on luxury autos

Wed, 01 May 2013

Driving a vehicle with a military license plate in China provides many privileges. Legally reserved for official vehicles only, the designation apparently allows drivers to enjoy special liberties on the roads, including breaking traffic laws, filling up with free fuel and receiving light-and-siren escorts through congested cities. So attractive are the benefits that there is a secondary market for used legal and counterfeit plates - especially among those wealthy enough to afford luxury cars. But all of that is reportedly coming to an end, as President Xi Jinping, chairman of the Central Military Commission, is on a mission to fight corruption in his country.
A new license plate system goes into effect today, and it is designed to "maintain social harmony, stability and the reputation of the military," says the PLA Daily, the armed forces' official newspaper. While the abuse has been going on for many years, the internet has put the spotlight on the bad behavior, and the negative press does not represent the morals and true colors of the armed forces, say officials.
While military-plated Porsche drivers have been singled out as offenders, Bloomberg notes that all vehicles with engine displacements above 3.0 liters and with a sticker price in excess of about $73,000, will be banned from receiving military plates. This includes vehicles from Audi, Cadillac, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lincoln and the Volkswagen Phaeton. Even if drivers are savvy enough to circumvent the new issuing system, the military has put technology at toll gates to catch users of counterfeit plates. There has been no word on the punishment if caught.

Hyundai, Porsche top J.D. Power APEAL study

Wed, 23 Jul 2014

Just as they did in the Initial Quality Study, Porsche and Hyundai have taken the premium and non-premium crown, respectively, for the 2014 J.D. Power APEAL study. This is the tenth consecutive year for that Porsche has been rated the best premium make in the APEAL study, which attempts to figure out how pleased owners are with their purchases. For 2014, it asked 86,000 owners of MY2014 cars to rate their vehicles in 77 different categories 90 days after their initial purchase. The resulting figures were plugged in deliver the APEAL score, which is rated on a 1,000-point scale.
The industry average sits at 794 points for 2014, although that's a one-percent decline over last year's rating. In this year's study, premium brands averaged 840 out of 1,000, while non-premium makes average 785. For their part, Porsche netted an impressive 882 points, while Hyundai earned an 804. Interestingly, only four non-premium brands (Hyundai, Ram, Volkswagen and Mini) finished above the industry average for 2014.
It's also interesting to see the clear delineation between premium and non-premium brands, with an eight-point gap between the non-premium champ, Hyundai, and the lowest-rated premium brand, Volvo.

Porsche's 959 is still poster-worthy after all these years

Thu, 24 Jul 2014

Today, we have the Porsche 918 Spyder. Before that, there was the Carrera GT. While both of those cars are dramatic departures from the traditional, rear-engine Porsche formula, they owe their very existence to another wild child of the iconic German brand - the 959.
Like so many of the great performance cars of yesteryear, the 959 was a homologation special, built just so Porsche could go racing in the clinically insane Group B rally series. Fewer than 400 959s hit the streets, but those that did were some of the most advanced cars of the 1980s. A rear-mounted, twin-turbocharged flat-six sent its power through a still-rare all-wheel-drive system, creating a race-inspired rocket that was, for a short time, the fastest production car on the planet.
Xcar has the story of the 959, from its inception to its conquest of the Paris-Dakar rally, which is interspersed with a drive of the legendary coupe. Scroll down for the full video.
