It is the ultimate street/race RSR originally built with electronic fuel injected slide valve induction. This was changed to the newest programmable Electromotive ECU with all new programmable software. The engine is a flat-six with 962 fan and a displacement of 74.0 x 98. A compression ratio of 12.5-1 brings the race-tuned engine to 415hp. Street tuned hp is still 395. Gearbox is an upside down 930-935 for lowered center of gravity. Front and rear suspension is type 935 and fitted with 930 type brakes. Additional recent upgrades include a complete new race tune with new injectors and race muffler. The original locker rear-end (live axle) was replaced with a LSD differential. This 935 gear box will accept a 5th gear which would allow for a shorter first gear that will make it leap off the line. Right now it is fitted with a 4 speed better suited for Sebring or Daytona. Wheels are the three piece BBS center lock. Tires are 23.5 x 10.5 x 15 (front) and 25.5 x 14 x 15 (rear). Full documentation including comprehensive build record and IMSA GTO racing history.

Build history and specifications:

BODY:

• Bare metal restoration, body work and paint, January 06 to June 06 (All work done by Stoddard Porsche Audi to highest standards).

• Reassembly from ‘June ’06 to August ’06.

• OEM factory steel RS rear flares (ordered from Germany).

• OEM factory steel RS rear bumpers (ordered from Germany).

• OEM factory aluminum RS rockers (factory NOS from Stoddard).

• OEM factory steel ‘S’ front bumper.

• All chrome replated.

• New OEM windshield.

• All new rubber seals.

• Flag mirrors installed.

• Aftermarket fiberglass Duck Tail engine cover.

• Factory engine cover painted at the same time as rest of car so removal of the duck tail back to the factory cover will only require some labor.

• Engine grill attached with SS hardware and Porsche letters properly attached to the fiberglass just like the steel cover.

• Targa top was restored by Dan Petchel, specialist in targa top restorations and owner of Cars Inc.

--

INTERIOR:

• Entire interior was replaced with ’74 vintage components for convenience.

• Dash included center vent. Conversion included all the proper ductwork in the trunk.

• Door panels and pockets, rear deck and all carpeting were replaced.

• Leather center console was added.

• Installed 930S steering wheel and Recaro RS cloth seats.

--

MOTOR/TRANSMISSION:

• RS Spec motor built by Chris Moore of Autobahn Extremist.

• Work took place from November ’07 to June ’08.

• Approximately 8,000 miles on the motor/transmission as of October 2012.

• Rebuild included new crank, pistons and cylinders.

• Heads were rebuilt, bored oversized and polished to perfection.

• Mechanical injection pump restored and new fuel injectors.

• Meticulous build produced a 2.7L motor that puts 201 hp to the rear wheels. That is better than the factory RS build. Motor runs on 91 octane.

• Transmission was rebuilt in ’97 but was disassembled, inspected and resealed.

• All electronic ignition including Crain magnetic distributor internals and MSD ignition.

• Carrera oil cooler installed in Rt front fender with hard lines and thermostat. All OEM factory components.

--

SUSPENSION - FRONT:

• Replaced steel cross member with factory aluminum cross member.

• Front A-Arm bushings were replaced with Elephant Racing PolyBronze bushings. SS spherical washers and shims were used to align the a-arms so they were perfectly aligned and do not bind. With the front strut removed the a-arm swings like a pendulum but has no play.

• Front struts were replaced and the larger ‘A’ calipers installed.

• Ball joints and wheel bearings were replaced.

• Front torsion bars were replaced with Sway-A-Way 21mm bars.

• Bilstein shocks were sent back to the factory and revalved to match the new front torsion bars.

• Installed Weltmeister adjustable 22mm front sway bar using modified 930 sway bar bushings. Plastic bushings make noise after some wear - Bored-out 930 rubber bushings fixed this.

SUSPENSION - REAR:

• Replaced the steel trailing arms with Carrera aluminum arms.

• Installed new rear wheel bearings.

• Replaced spring plate bushings with new Netrix bushings.

• Rear torsion bars were replaced with Sway-A-Way 26mm bars.

1970 Porsche 914-6 Porsche's 914 used to be a red headed stepchild, but no more. Collectors have awoken to what enthusiasts have said for years: These light, mid-engined cars are a blast to drive. Leading the charge are rare 6 cylinder models like this stunning car here. It's not just another pretty face, either—this car comes with a serious track engine and plenty of minor tweaks! Signal Orange looks great on anything and especially on 914's. The paint is gorgeous having just gone through a $1500+ correction treatment. The bodywork is in excellent condition, and the car appears to be rust free. Rechromed bumpers join NOS and reconditioned trim for brightwork while all lenses are new. Fuchs wheels are timeless, and this set is beautiful. Rubber parts and seals were replaced when the car was restored. The interior is excellent with clean black upholstery on the stock seats and Coco mats on the floors. A Momo Monte Carlo steering wheel feels great in your hands while a big Auto Meter tach and a period 911 oil temperature/pressure gauge keep better tabs on the engine behind you. The unobtainium-filled oil temperature/fuel level gauge has been moved to an easily removable bracket in the center console. A fire extinguisher (which really should be in every vintage car) is on the passenger side floor. The rest of the interior is proper down to the radio in the dash. For collectors, the original and numbers matching complete engine long block is included in the sale. The current resident under the center lid is a MONSTER of a motor. It's a fully prepped magnesium 2 liter case with a fully counterweighted '70-71 S crank, Carillo connecting rods and JE pistons. New cylinder jugs and those pistons push displacement to 2.2 liters. 2.7 Liter heads with larger valves work to the beat of a custom set of Webcam camshafts. Air and fuel are ingested wholesale by a set of Weber 40IDA carburetors with modified venturis. 12.5/1 Compression crushes the mixture while twin spark plugs per cylinder and a pair of Electromotive ignition systems light it off. Exhaust gasses pass through equal length headers and a high flow muffler before being expelled through twin tailpipes. It currently runs on 93 octane but would need race fuel to reach its full potential: Redline is currently set at 7000rpm but the rotating assembly is capable of much higher. Heat is kept in check by a massive oil cooler ducted into the front trunk. The chassis is in excellent condition with newer bushings and clean hard parts. Braided brake hoses reach 911S calipers in the front and 911T calipers in the rear. Larger sway bars are at both ends along with Koni shocks and cross drilled brake rotors. The transaxle has been gone through fully and features a limited slip differential. This car is set up for canyon carving, open track days or competition—what it does next is up to you. A comprehensive list of spares and original parts also come with the car. A complete set of proper width Fuchs wheels, a bolt in roll bar, a racing front bumper and more are included and will require additional shipping consideration if the car is not picked up in person. A string of collectors has owned and cared for this car, and some have used it to its potential. This is a desirable car that's growing in value while fully capable of showing much newer sports cars its taillights. www.switchcars.com

Impeccable and all original 1987 928 S4 from the first year of the updated styling and 315hp 5.0L V8. Finished in Guards Red exterior with rare Millenium Natural Brown leather interior. Very low mileage, original paint, and unmodified from stock with the exception of the newer Porsche wheels, however, the original flat-disc wheels are included with the car. This 928 has just been checked over and serviced by a Porsche specialist, and is in top mechanical condition. The timing belts, tensioners, and water pump were replaced November 2016. All power options work properly, the A/C will freeze your fingertips off, and the car starts, runs, drives and shifts smoothly with no drama. The current wheels sport fresh Bridgestone Potenza RE11s, and the original wheels are unmounted.
The car comes with all original books and manuals, one set of keys, spare tire, jack, complete tool kit, emergency roadside reflectors, plastic dropcloth and gloves, and an aftermarket period-correct air compressor in place of the original Porsche one. The car has limited service records, but the service booklet is stamped up through 29k miles, and what the car lacks in receipts, it greatly makes up for in condition and originality. 
The car is all original paint and shows very well, having just completed a comprehensive 2-stage paint-correction detailing. The original VIN tags are present on all the panels, verifiying original paint and panels. 
This is a no-excuses 928 S4 that is ready for a new steward. One of the cleanest ones I've ever seen!

This gorgeous and original 928 GTS is up for auction via Bring a Trailer, closing October 28th. Click the link below to see more information and to place your bid:

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1993-porsche-928-gts-20/

Early 1993 Porsche 928 GTS: Very Significant And Rare, 1 Of Only 54 Manual Units Produced For The 1993 Model Year - Only 406 GTS Models Were Brought To The U.S. - Meticulously Maintained, With No Expense Spared - Finished In Black Over Classic Grey - Displays Only 18,850 Miles From New - Clean CarFax Report - Comes With Its Original Books And Manuals, tool kit and air compressor, original window sticker, service records, and Certificate of Authenticity.

Presenting a rare opportunity to take ownership of an exceptional and minimally driven example of the coveted GTS trim with the highly sought-after 5-speed manual transmission! Built in March of 1992 at Porsche's assembly facility in Stuttgart, this 1993 U.S model is the absolute ideal 928 GTS for the most discerning collector as it is representative of how a well-sorted and no-stories specimen should present itself.

Surrounded by a timeless body where the rear fenders and tires ever so subtlety protrude outwards, thus creating a muscular, visual drama; a rear spoiler that further draws one's attention to its sloping roofline, while its iconic reflector strip adds to the dramatic, yet fluid design language by aiding in accentuating the wider rear fenders with the 17-inch Cup 1 wheels harmoniously completing the exterior.

As you step inside the Classic Grey finished cabin and close the door, you're not only greeted by the solid thunk that emits from the closing of the door, assuring one of the car's solidity, but also by the embracing and heated power-adjustable front sport seats that are complimented by a cabin that features a streamlined and driver-centric layout, with the driver being welcomed by a 4-spoke steering wheel, 3-floor pedals and 5-speed manual gearbox. The cabin also features a sunroof and a CD-2, CD player.

 

It was driven and remained under the care of its first owner from late June of 1992 until 1997 when it was placed in long-term storage. The GTS remained stored until its second owner acquired it in February of 2011. During the 2nd owner's 8 years of ownership, less than 2,000 miles were accumulated. On the 2nd of February, 2020, its third owner took ownership and has since driven it less than 400 miles.

This fastidiously maintained and turn-key example benefits from a July 2019 servicing that consisted of an oil and coolant flush, new water pump, and a timing belt change. Within the last 400 miles, it has also received new tires, lug nuts, wheel caps, wiper blades and exhaust tips, it had its brake hoses, rotors, and pads replaced, a caliper refinishing, while also having its transmission and brake fluid flushed. All parts that were replaced have been kept by the third owner.

The GTS is an absolute legendary Grand Tourer from Porsche. Debuting in 1992 with production concluding in 1995, only 2,887 examples were produced. Of those, the U.S would only receive 406 examples. Finished in an illustrious shade of black with an interior upholstered in Classic Grey, this specimen would go on to be 1 of 190 examples and 1 of only 54 manual-equipped units produced for the 1993 model year and one of only 12 with sport seats!

The GTS stands as the pinnacle in the 928 line and is powered by a 5.4-liter V8 engine that's situated up front with its sonorous roar emitting from its rear dual-exhaust outlets.  Performance attributes are comprised of an engine with 345-hp and 369-lbs-ft of torque to the rear wheels; front brake calipers that are derived from the 911 Turbo; a weight distribution of 50/50 with a relatively low weight of 3,300 pounds; the Weissach axle rear-steering setup; and handling that's well collected with a very connected steering feel.

1979 Porsche 930 Coupe - 3.3L 911 Turbo. Note: This car has had a lot of work done to it recently, including a full engine and gearbox teardown, and full repaint in original color. Details are below. That being said, it is not a perfect car, and still needs some minor sorting; details also below. It is a great driver and the paint job looks fantastic, but it is not up to the usual caliber of the cars we offer. That being said, we believe we have priced it accurately as a non-original driver-quality car, as an all-original 19k mile documented early 930 will run at least double this in the current market. Upgrades include Fabspeed exhaust, intake, headers, and blow-off valve. Car is purported to have 400hp. Mileage on odometer is not documented, and while the title shows actual mileage, we cannot confirm that the mileage is original, as there is no supporting documentation.

This car comes with extensive documentation, all the way back to the original purchase agreement. It was purchased new from Meister Porsche on December 6th, 1984. The original owner kept and maintained the car until September 21, 2000, when it was sold to the second owner. We purchased the car from a local client who is a Porsche fanatic, collector, and concours judge. As you can imagine, it was exceptionally clean. As far as we can tell he was the third owner since new. The Toyo Proxes tires are very recent, and the cam timing belt and countershaft belt were replaced in 2009. The car also had a full service in 2010 at Autobahn Extremist, including a new power steering update hose, distributor cap, ignition rotor, spark plugs, alternator and a/c belt, and power steering belt. This seriously is the most well documented, cleanest 944 I've ever seen. Original manuals, including a stamped maintenance booklet, and original tool kit and air compressor included with the car, as well as all service records.
