1984 Porsche 911 Turbo (930) 1 of 1 Sonderwunsch (Special Wishes) paint to sample (L999) with Black leather
interior (917) with 52,000 original miles. This car was ordered by a prominent family in Texas who ordered the car
from Germany and had it imported in 1984. What makes this car a Special Wishes car is that it was ordered with the
Porsche slant nose rocker panels and wide fenders (rear brake cooling vents) and paint to sample (a custom color).
I have all the documentation including the original bill of sale, books, manuals, keys and import paper work. This
car is 100% stock and is in perfect working order. The car was ordered with a few addition options that also make
it unique: 40% Locking Diff, Leather Sport Seats, Air Conditioning and Sunroof. This car is currently owned by the
Porsche Club of America (Palmetto Region) historian, who was also a very accomplished artist. Harold “Tug”
Mathisen passed away on December 29th 2015 and the car now belongs to his widow. The PCA club in Charleston SC is
helping Tugs wife sell the car (me). We are including an original “Tug Art” one of his many famous water color
Porsche paintings (he painted every Euro Fest poster for over 15 years). Tug was one helluva car guy and Porsche
owner, owning dozens of Porsches over the years. The car lives in a climate controlled garage and has been
recently detailed and is ready for a new home, I have the title in hand and it is clean (no accidents or any issues
with the title ever).

Porsche hasn't offered a four-cylinder engine since the 968 went out of production in 1995 - the better part of two decades ago. There'd been talk of a four-pot Boxster or an even smaller model to slot in below it, but while the latest intel indicates that Porsche is moving ahead with its four-cylinder plans, it's a different kind of vehicle that will get it first.
That, of course, would be the new Macan. Just revealed a few weeks ago at the LA Auto Show, the Macan crossover is being launched with a pair of twin-turbocharged V6 engines (a 3.0 with 340 horsepower and a 3.6 with 400 hp) and a six-cylinder turbodiesel with 258 hp. But smaller engines, according to emerging reports from Autocar and Auto Express, are on their way.
Word has it that Porsche is preparing a 2.0-liter turbo four with 280 horsepower and a diesel with the same displacement and cylinder count, engines that will power new entry-level Macan models that will slot in beneath the existing Macan S, Macan S Diesel and Macan Turbo. While the diesel is tipped to be ported over from the Volkswagen parts bin, the four-cylinder gasoline engine is said to be under development by Porsche itself, which could mean it will have a boxer layout.
Porsche is one of the most profitable automakers in the business. In fact, it's said to make about $23,000 on each car it sells, thanks in no small part to an options list that can send the sticker price accelerating quicker than one of its own sports cars. But there are always those for whom even the extensive option list won't be enough, and for just such customers, there is Porsche Exclusive.
The division in Zuffenhausen is tasked with creating even more individualized examples of Porsche vehicles, and it recently did up this 911 Turbo Cabriolet - which, at $160,700, is already one of the most expensive Porsches you can order this side of a 918 Spyder: more than any Boxster, Cayman, Macan or Cayenne, any Panamera other than a Turbo S or Executive - not to mention any other 911 short of a Turbo S.
This particular demo vehicle features a Slate Grey paint job and red interior decked out in more leather than an S&M dungeon - which, come to think of it, would probably be less financially painful than ordering up this car from Porsche Exclusive.
Despite Porsche having claimed the name, targa tops are nothing new. In addition to the semi-roofless version of the 911, plenty of cars in the past have used removable roof panels - the new Corvette Stingray has one (as have prior generations), and this type of open-air experience has been available on past vehicles like the Pontiac Solstice Coupe and Honda Civic del Sol.
But when Porsche took the top off its brand new 911 Targa here at the Detroit Auto Show, it was indeed cause for pause. Simply put, this is one of the most complicated and intricate electronic roof panel removal techniques we've ever seen, save perhaps, for the setup found on the Japanese-market Civic del Sol from the 1990s.
We won't spoil the video for you, but basically, rather than just the roof panel coming off, the entire rear glass area lifts away the body in order for the small section over the passenger compartment to slide back. This has to be incredibly expensive to repair once it inevitably breaks. And we highly doubt you'll be able to operate this mechanism at any speed.
