1986 Porsche 924 S

1986 Porsche 924 S

Lot # 201 (Sale Order: 1 of 42)      

A lost gem, the connoisseurs Porsche, simple to work on with a real classic charmMostly original condition including supplying dealer plates and naturally the in-car phoneRevered for its superb handling, the 924S is fast becoming more desirable and collectableOffered without reserve, a great opportunity to get your hands dirty and reap the rewardsThe 1976 Porsche 924 was a complete departure by the company, in that it featured a front-mounted, water-cooled engine. The 1984cc engine was essentially an Audi unit which Porsche then tweaked to 125bhp. The power went to a rear mounted gearbox/transaxle and the advantage of this layout was that it gave the car near perfect weight balance which naturally improved the handling. The 924 was clothed in a pretty two plus two body shell which featured a large glass hatchback giving access to a relatively large rear boot making this a very practical sports car. The 2-litre engine, which powered the earlier models, developed 125bhp and the maximum speed was in excess of 125mph. Things were to improve, however, with the arrival of the 924S which was fitted with an 'all-Porsche' designed, 2.5-litre engine with 163bhp available. With its sure-footed handling, the car was to prove a great success and nowadays is a popular choice as a potential future classic.Requiring some light recommissioning, this sought after 924S has stood idle for almost two years. Receipts in the history folder show that in 2015 the car was subject to some remedial work to gain an MoT Certificate as the intention was to use it as a daily driver. It seems the car made its way back from the test centre and hasn't turned a wheel since. This, therefore, appears to present a great opportunity, and a little TLC, some detailing, and a set of original 'tele-dial' wheels would transform this little Porsche into a useable modern classic with values only set to go one way.

1994 Porsche 968 Sport

1994 Porsche 968 Sport

Lot # 202 (Sale Order: 2 of 42)      

One of only 306, right-hand drive, UK-supplied 968 SportsFinished in the rare and desirable Riviera Blue. 88,000 miles Excellent mechanical and structural condition (PCGB). Fresh belts less than 2,000 miles agoOwned by well-known motoring journalist and Porsche authority, Andrew FrankelMagazine and newspaper featured. Good history. Fresh MoT This is one of only 306, right-hand drive, UK 968 Sports produced during 1994 and 1995 forming part of the run of 1,923 968 Club Sports produced by Porsche in that period. Although badged as '968 Sports' in the UK, all are genuine 'ClubSports' with the luxury package option, which included electric front windows, rear seats, a sunroof and other 'refinements'.This lovely example, finished in the rare and desirable Riviera Blue more normally associated with the 911 GT3, is owned by well-known motoring journalist and Porsche authority, Andrew Frankel, and has been known to him for 18 years. Back then, it was owned by his brother who sold it to a close mutual friend, a cardiologist on the Isle of Wight, who kept the car until Andrew bought it in 2016. At the time the car was checked over by a senior technician from Porsche Cars Great Britain and found to be in excellent mechanical and structural condition. An entirely precautionary cambelt change was completed at PCGB at that point, since when the car has covered fewer than 2,000 miles.Andrew bought the car to enable him to write an in-depth feature comparing the 968 to a Porsche 918 Spyder, resulting in cover stories for the 'Cars Section' of the Daily Telegraph (10 September 2016) and 'GT Porsche' magazine (August 2016 issue). The car has been written about extensively in the media and has also featured on the cover of Autocar.During his ownership, Andrew has treated the Porsche to some gentle cosmetic restoration, including complete refurbishment of its wheels and the fitting of brand new, correct specification, N-marked Michelin Pilot Sport tyres. He also fitted a Porsche 'Classic' combined entertainment and satellite navigation unit complete with twin USB charging ports. One side of the car has been resprayed where the car had been poorly repainted following its only known accident (resulting in a dented wing but no other damage). The interior is in dark grey cloth and appears to be in excellent order. Pressure of work has meant that Andrew has rarely had the chance to use the car, resulting in his reluctant decision to offer it for sale today.There is an extensive history file including photographs and articles in which the car featured. The current indicated mileage is 88,000 and the car will be freshly MoT'd at the time of the sale.Anyone who has settled into those Recaros and spent some time at the wheel of the 968 CS will understand why it's so sought after. That large 3.0-litre engine produces 240bhp and, when combined with the low weight (1,320kg) and a silky six-speed gearbox, the 25-year old design feels as taut and precise as GTs that are two decades newer, a genuine lightweight in the spirit of the old 911 RS. Indeed, it would have been a worthy Porsche to have carried the fabled 'RS' badge, and if it had done, we suspect values would be a lot higher than they currently are, suggesting this may be a very good time to make that investment.

1991 Porsche 944 Turbo

1991 Porsche 944 Turbo

Lot # 203 (Sale Order: 3 of 42)      

Just about run-in with 6,288 miles! All original partsLoaded with every Optional Extra available at the time of orderTotally original, untouched, unmodified. No accident, mark, ding, rust or any notable blemish Full leather interior in Linen finish still smelling of leather Last serviced in August 2018. MoT until September 2019A turbo version of the 944 was always on the cards, and it boosted the 2.5-litre engine by nearly 60bhp, whilst both the clutch and gearbox were uprated to suit. The chassis was beefed up and thicker anti-roll bars and four-pot brake callipers were fitted. A smooth nose panel and a larger rear spoiler, streamlined to offer a flat aerofoil, distinguished it from its lesser siblings. For 1988, a Turbo SE was offered with 250bhp thanks to a larger turbocharger, the transmission was again upgraded, and a limited-slip diff was fitted along with uprated brakes and Koni dampers. From 1989-1991 the 'SE' specification was adopted for the standard 944 Turbo, making it somewhat of a sleeping giant. We are very pleased to be able to offer this very special, 1991 944 Turbo. Normally when it comes to compiling a catalogue and website description for our customer's cars, we will look at the vendor's notes and try and create a coherent description listing all the relevant facts, emphasising the cars good points, and playing down any slightly optimistic claims. However, when the owner of this very smart 944, composed a short list for us and having seen the car, it seemed almost unnecessary to try and put it all into sentences, so we thought we would publish it exactly the way he wrote it.Coachwork: Excellent, unmarked Paintwork: Excellent, unmarked, original paintwork Engine: Just about run-in with 6,288 miles! All original parts Transmission and Gearbox: 5-speed manual Electrical Equipment: All in working order Interior Trim: Excellent, unmarked History of vehicle: 1.

Last serviced in August 2018. Mechanically in full (nearly new) working condition. 12. MoT valid until September 2019So there it is. Not much more to say. If you are in the market for a late-model 944 Tubo, with one owner, tiny mileage, a huge specification, unmarked coachwork, an interior that still smells of leather, an impeccable service history, and in a timeless colour scheme, - this is probably it.

1972 Porsche 911 2.4T

1972 Porsche 911 2.4T

Lot # 204 (Sale Order: 4 of 42)      

Genuine 1972 m-y, home-market, LHD, 'side oil fill' car in Light Yellow (6262)Imported to the UK in 1982. Five owners, one from 1988 to 2012Lengthy, ground up restoration in 2012. £92,000 with QV500 Ltd.More recent, stem to stern, inspection by Porsche GB Reading with appropriate worksLots of history and photographs. Porsche C of A. MoT valid until Aug.2019It would be difficult to imagine a better example The 911T (Touring) had been introduced as a new base model in 1967, initially with a 2-litre engine in 110bhp form before gaining the 2.2-litre unit, along with the rest of the range, in 1969. The T's power output then was 125bhp, increasing to 130bhp with the introduction of the 2.4-litre engine across the range for 1972. Externally similar, the differences between them are manifest in trim details and mechanicals. The 2.4 cars are identifiable by their black engine lid grille with 2.4 badge, a gunmetal 911 badge instead of the previous gold, bumper over riders changed to all-black, and horn grilles and sidelight-cluster rims change from chrome to black. Being the base model, the T is fuelled by Zenith 40 T1N carburettors, and the 2.4s were first to receive the new 915 five-speed gearbox, with the Sportomatic box only available to special order. Most Ss and Es had sunroofs and electric windows, while the T had to make do with wind-up windows. However, it's for the notorious 'Oil Flap' that the '72 cars will be remembered. For just one year of production in 1972, in an attempt to move as much weight as possible towards the centre of the car, the oil tank was repositioned inboard of the right rear wheel arch, resulting in the introduction of an external oil filler cap on the right-hand side rear wing behind a flap ('Oel Klappe'). The propensity for petrol station attendants to fill the oil tank with fuel, and the resulting warranty claims, quickly persuaded Porsche to change the design and 1972 'Oel Klappe' cars became difficult to sell, possibly resulting in their comparative scarcity today. As is often the case, that rarity has resulted in the 'Oel Klappe' cars now being the most desirable. As confirmed by its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this beautiful 911T 2.4 was built as a home market car leaving the production line on 1/11/1971 (72 Model Year) finished in Light Yellow with a Black Leatherette interior. It was optioned with 6' x 15' Alloys, spoilers, Porsche script in black, leather steering wheel, and tinted windows. It was first registered in the UK in August 1982 and has been enjoyed by just a handful of owners in the past 36 years, one of them being Mark Higham who owned it for 24 of those years from 1988 - 2012. Unlike many imported cars, this 911 has a huge history file containing many invoices including one from Walsh Engineering for £ 3,245, dated 6/1/89 listing full details of a top-end engine rebuild at 86,340km.However, it's the invoice from QV500 Ltd. in December 2012 that really stops you in your tracks. They were entrusted with the car in March of that year to carry out a full nut and bolt restoration and this they certainly did. The work totalled some 2,298 hours which amounted to the not inconsiderable sum of £91,920, with the bodywork alone costing £43,520. (the engine appears to have been rebuilt by Porsche GB Reading at a cost of £3,680). When the previous owner purchased PJT 451J to add to his collection, it was sent to Porsche GB, Reading for a complete mechanical appraisal with maintenance and overhaul where required. Works included the fitting of a new fuel tank, carburettor rebuild, a new wiring loom, and the underbody and arches were undersealed. This was followed by extensive road testing, 4-wheel alignment and engine set-up to ensure this 911 was at its finest. The current MoT Certificate is valid until 30/08/2019 and the mileage on the most recent one states 93,653km on 31/08/2018. These reside in the car's enormous history file with invoices, photographs registration documentation, the Porsche C of A.This must be one of the best, if not the best 911T on the market.Early 911s possess a certain purity of line, particularly in lighter colours, a complete world away from the aerodynamic extravagances of the eighties and nineties, and in terms of style, it's the early cars that engender the most appreciative glances. A well set-up and maintained 911T, 'E' or 'S' driven with an intelligent right foot will provide some of the most quintessentially rewarding driving experiences you have ever had, and even the 130bhp 911T, will leave you with a serious grin.

1994 Porsche 968 CS

1994 Porsche 968 CS

Lot # 205 (Sale Order: 5 of 42)      

One of just 179 UK-supplied genuine Clubsport in arguably the best colour combinationExcellent condition. Just under 42,000 miles.Full and documented service record.A magazine featured car. Cherished plate 'A968 POR' is part of the saleThe epitome of a true drivers car, few collectable modern classics offer such appealThe Porsche (project no.) 968 made its debut in 1991 and was effectively, the last gasp for the long-lived 924 line. Originally mooted as the 944S3, the new number was probably more a result of pressure from the marketing department, but it was right for recessionary Porsche wrestling with struggling sales.The 968 was well regarded and received excellent reviews, even if the UK market had to wait almost a year from launch to get it (blame the slow 944 sales for that). It was powered by the 944 S2's 3.0-litre 4-cylinder engine producing 225lb ft of torque and 240bhp. but with variable valve timing to improve power, torque, fuel economy, and most importantly, drivability.Visually, it was the biggest step forward since the launch of the original 944 in 1981, with only the doors, roof and tailgate being carried over from the 944. The new front-end with 928 style pop-up headlamps did bring a touch of modernity.The interior trim was standardised with the 911 and 928, justifying the inflated list price, but not enough as sales were rather slow, however, all that changed in 1993 when the stripped-out, back-to-basics 'Clubsport' (Vereinssport) was launched at £7,000 less. Not only was it cheaper, but the CS was also inspirationally good to drive. Porsche had set their sights on creating a car tailored for the driving enthusiast and, in particular, one with competition potential.This was achieved by removing all luxury-orientated equipment from the basic build specification, for example, less sound deadening material was used and the electric windows were replaced with hand wound units. In addition, Porsche installed manually adjustable, lightweight Recaro racing seats rather than the standard power-operated, leather buckets, and revised suspension optimized and lowered by 20mm, with 17-inch wheels also helped the quest for lightness and crisp handling. With the no-frills approach, less weight, and clever suspension, Porsche could now focus media attention on the Club Sport's fast road and track abilities, and the CS achieved a 'Performance Car Of The Year' award in 1993 from Performance Car magazine in the UK. In total, just 1,923 units were produced, of which only 179 were right-hand drive, making the Club Sport a very rare Porsche indeed. Finished in Black with a Red script, A968 POR was supplied new by Lancaster Bow Porsche and was first registered on 24th June 1994, making it one of the 179 UK-supplied 'C16' cars. With weight-saving top of Porsche's agenda, it was ordered in true lightweight spec with sports Recaro seats, manual windows and door mirrors, three-spoke non-airbag steering wheel and rear window wiper delete. The car also features a removable sunroof.On the outside, the car is in great condition with virtually blemish-free paintwork that still retains a deep gloss finish. The unmarked 'Cup 2' wheels are in great condition and look great in the contrasting silver finish, something that was only available on the Black cars, all other cars had wheels finished in the body colour. The red decals are in great shape and still flush.The interior also presents very well, as can be expected in a car that has only covered just over 40,000 miles.

One of just 179 UK-supplied genuine Clubsport in arguably the best colour combinationExcellent condition. Just under 42,000 miles.Full and documented service record.A mag...moreazine featured car. Cherished plate 'A968 POR' is part of the saleThe epitome of a true drivers car, few collectable modern classics offer such appealThe Porsche (project no.) 968 made its debut in 1991 and was effectively, the last gasp for the long-lived 924 line. Originally mooted as the 944S3, the new number was probably more a result of pressure from the marketing department, but it was right for recessionary Porsche wrestling with struggling sales.The 968 was well regarded and received excellent reviews, even if the UK market had to wait almost a year from launch to get it (blame the slow 944 sales for that). It was powered by the 944 S2's 3.0-litre 4-cylinder engine producing 225lb ft of torque and 240bhp. but with variable valve timing to improve power, torque, fuel economy, and most importantly, drivability.Visually, it was the biggest step forward since the launch of the original 944 in 1981, with only the doors, roof and tailgate being carried over from the 944. The new front-end with 928 style pop-up headlamps did bring a touch of modernity.The interior trim was standardised with the 911 and 928, justifying the inflated list price, but not enough as sales were rather slow, however, all that changed in 1993 when the stripped-out, back-to-basics 'Clubsport' (Vereinssport) was launched at £7,000 less. Not only was it cheaper, but the CS was also inspirationally good to drive. Porsche had set their sights on creating a car tailored for the driving enthusiast and, in particular, one with competition potential.This was achieved by removing all luxury-orientated equipment from the basic build specification, for example, less sound deadening material was used and the electric windows were replaced with hand wound units. In addition, Porsche installed manually adjustable, lightweight Recaro racing seats rather than the standard power-operated, leather buckets, and revised suspension optimized and lowered by 20mm, with 17-inch wheels also helped the quest for lightness and crisp handling. With the no-frills approach, less weight, and clever suspension, Porsche could now focus media attention on the Club Sport's fast road and track abilities, and the CS achieved a 'Performance Car Of The Year' award in 1993 from Performance Car magazine in the UK. In total, just 1,923 units were produced, of which only 179 were right-hand drive, making the Club Sport a very rare Porsche indeed. Finished in Black with a Red script, A968 POR was supplied new by Lancaster Bow Porsche and was first registered on 24th June 1994, making it one of the 179 UK-supplied 'C16' cars. With weight-saving top of Porsche's agenda, it was ordered in true lightweight spec with sports Recaro seats, manual windows and door mirrors, three-spoke non-airbag steering wheel and rear window wiper delete. The car also features a removable sunroof.On the outside, the car is in great condition with virtually blemish-free paintwork that still retains a deep gloss finish. The unmarked 'Cup 2' wheels are in great condition and look great in the contrasting silver finish, something that was only available on the Black cars, all other cars had wheels finished in the body colour. The red decals are in great shape and still flush.The interior also presents very well, as can be expected in a car that has only covered just over 40,000 miles. The colour coded black bucket seats are still fresh with minimal wear to the bolsters and the carpets are in great condition. Peeling back the carpet in the boot reveals the unused spare wheel and toolkit and it's immaculately clean.

2018 Porsche 911(991.2) GT3 Touring 6-speed manual

2018 Porsche 911(991.2) GT3 Touring 6-speed manual

Lot # 206 (Sale Order: 6 of 42)      

Factory 'Touring Package' plus all the best factory options4.0-litre atmospheric flat-six from the 991.2 Cup Car. 9,000 rpm,493bhp, 347lb/ftSix-speed GT sports manual gearbox and mechanical locking differential. Rear-wheel drive Sapphire Blue Metallic with Black LeatherJust 400 gentle miles from newPorsche unveiled the '911 GT3 Touring Package' as a more approachable alternative to the rare, expensive and totally focused '911 R'. The new model made its world debut at a media function on the eve of the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show and was the latest in a line of road-friendly models aimed at purists intent on securing one of the last remaining 911 models powered by a naturally aspirated engine. With 493 bhp on tap directed towards the rear wheels through a manual gearbox, this truly is harking back to the spirit of those legendary air-cooled 911s from the mid-seventies.The differences between the standard GT3 and the 'Touring Pack' are small but important. Up front, it features the same bumper assembly and air ducts as Porsche's standard race-bred model. The rear, however, receives a more understated look, with an automatically deploying spoiler assembly from the standard 911 Carrera, complete with an additional Gurney Flap and a unique grille insert bearing a GT3 Touring logo. Other exterior touches include headlight washer system covers, highlights around the side windows, and sport exhaust tailpipes, all in silver. Buyers could specify a so-called 'Black Exterior Touring Package' to change these elements to black. In a further departure from the standard 911 GT3, the internal headlight graphics and tail-light lenses are darkened in colour. Mechanically, the rear-wheel-drive 911 GT3 Touring Package is identical to the recently facelifted standard 911 GT3. Power comes from the most powerful and largest capacity naturally-aspirated version of Porsche's classic flat six-cylinder petrol engine. With a displacement of 4.0-litres, it delivers 493bhp at 8250rpm and 339lb ft of torque at 6000rpm and has the distinction of being able to rev to a heady 9000rpm. Drive is channelled to the rear wheels through a standard six-speed manual gearbox and mechanical locking differential. Porsche claims the same 0-62mph time as the standard 911 GT3 at 3.9sec., however, the 911 GT3 Touring Package cannot quite claim the same top speed, with 196mph as against the standard car's 198mph.Inside, the new model swaps the Alcantara accents of the standard car for genuine leather trim which is used on the steering wheel, gear lever, door panel armrests, centre console storage compartment lid, and door handles. The seat centres are upholstered in black fabric, while the headrests feature an embossed Porsche logo. There are also black aluminium trim applications within the dashboard. The 911 GT3 Touring Package rolls on 20in centre-lock wheels - 9.0in in width up front and 12.0in in width at the rear and they are shod with 245/35 and 305/30 profile tyres respectively. Clothed in the same aluminium body as the 911 Carrera 4, the new model is 44mm wider than the standard 911 Carrera and lowered suspension also sees it sit 25mm closer to the ground. Among the new model's innovations is a rear-wheel steer function which points the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front wheels for added agility at lower speeds and (comfortingly) in the same direction as the front wheels for greater longitudinal stability at higher speeds.This represents a very rare opportunity to purchase the latest GT3 Touring fitted with a 6-speed manual gearbox at a sensible price estimate. Purchased in April of this year by Silverstone Auctions owner, Nick Whale, the car has covered just 400 careful running-in miles and is offered as a UK-supplied car with a known incident free history and factory warranty valid for the next two and a half years.Finished in Sapphire Blue Metallic with Black leather and ordered with all the right options, the specification includes: 6-speed GT sports manual transmission, BOSE Surround Sound-System, Sports Chrono Package and preparation for lap trigger, cruise control, deletion of model designation, Digital radio, Front axle lift system, Instrument dials in White, Leather interior with stitching in red, Light design package, Porsche Vehicle Tracking System, Privacy glass (rear side windows and rear window), Reversing camera, Seat heating, Sports Bucket Seats, Steering wheel rim and gear selector in smooth-finish leather, Black Exterior Touring Package.A very rare and special opportunity to own a very civilised, state-of-the-art, 911 at a sensible guide price.

1996 Porsche 911 (993) C2 Coupe Manual

1996 Porsche 911 (993) C2 Coupe Manual

Lot # 207 (Sale Order: 7 of 42)      

Low ownership and mileage. Excellent service and maintenance recordsHighly desirable 6 speed manual gearboxThe Cherished Registration (694 JUR) will remain with the carVery recent service and MoTThe 993 was the final generation of the air-cooled 911, and as such will always have a special place in the affections of Porsche enthusiasts. It is also widely said to be the last of the 911s that were built whilst engineering integrity overruled accounting pressures at Porsche. Twenty years on, it still looks modern - a truly timeless design. The 993 was launched in the autumn of 1994 and was claimed to be 80% new and certainly, the bodywork was altogether more curvaceous, with a number of new panels and a much smoother and more integrated overall look. Importantly, this new style was still every inch a 911 in the traditional manner, with the profiles of the doors and rear quarter windows remaining unchanged from earlier models.The biggest change under the skin was the new multi-link rear suspension, giving greater driver confidence, less road noise and excellent ride quality. Designed to give a level of passive rear-wheel steering (the 'Weissach effect'), effectively controlling the way the suspension behaved under cornering, braking and acceleration, it transformed the 911. It was also the first 911 to be equipped with power steering and an advanced ABS system. The 993 used essentially the same 3.6-litre engine as the 964, mated to a development of the worthy G50 gearbox, but now with six forward gears. Whereas the Porsche 964 produced 247 bhp, the 993 from 1995 produced 272bhp enabling a top speed of over 150mph and acceleration to match.This manual gearbox 911 (993) 3.6 Carrera Coupe is a UK, right-hand drive car supplied by Rivervale Porsche to a Mr Hugh on 30/08/1996 finished in a lovely shade of Arena Red with a contrasting light Grey interior. Among the factory options from new are 17' wheels, a rear window wiper, Top-Tint screen, Air Con, and the rare option of a Sliding Metal Sun Roof. Our vendor has been the keeper of this lovely 911 for the last 15 years and for the last nine of those years it has been kept in dry storage. He has subsequently spent in excess of £3,500 in servicing and recommissioning costs preparing it for the next custodian to enjoy. The recent work included a full service, replacement brake discs and pads, new drive belts and fresh brake fluid. Having been stored away for the last 9 years the mileage has remained at 64,300, however, during its active years it was regularly serviced and maintained at the correct intervals, corroborated by the official dealer stamps in the original Porsche Service Book, and supporting invoices and older MoTs contained in the history file.The 993 generation of the 911 is often regarded as the best and most desirable of the 911 Series and is often referred to as 'The last complete modern classic'This is a lovely, genuine, well-maintained example of this highly desirable model and is presented here with a very attractive guide.

1989 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo LE

1989 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo LE

Lot # 208 (Sale Order: 8 of 42)      

Bespoke, right-hand drive, UK-only, 5-speed G50 gearbox, Limited EditionDating from 4th August 1989. One of 53 (one per dealer) and only 30,000 milesMost recent service at Hexagon Classics in late 2014 at 29,929 milesFour former keepers. In a private collection of significant classics since 2015 Porsche C of A, impressive history file with all the books and manuals, and a fresh MoT First launched at the 1973 Paris Auto Show, with production commencing in 1975, the Porsche 911 '930' Turbo was a genuine Supercar that came to define both the 1970s and 80s and was one of the fastest production cars available at that time. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7RS with its capacity increased to 3.0 Litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gleaned from Porsche's 917/30 Can-Am programme. The bodywork came in for special treatment resulting in one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear 'whale-tail' and the brakes were borrowed directly from the Porsche 917 race car. At the end of production in 1989, Porsche decided to mark the occasion by creating a very special Limited Edition 930 - the ultimate Turbo. A small number of the last assembly batch of standard 3.3-litre, five-speed G50 gearbox cars were taken off the line and sent to the 'Exclusive' team at Zuffenhausen to be finished by hand. Here, the 53 cars (one for each UK Official Porsche Centre) were individually assembled incorporating a host of no-cost options, including colour-coded wheel centres, a top-tinted windscreen, and rear-quarter air intake ducts. What's more, any colour from the standard range could be used for the body, with colour-to-sample available at an extra cost.Inside, the choice was similarly expansive, with any combination of standard leather colours possible for the heated multi-adjust electric seats The use of leather extended to the handbrake gaiter, whilst the steering wheel was a three-spoke design, similar to the original 1974 car. Sitting at its centre was a gold Porsche crest, complemented by a similar emblem on top of the gear knob. The final touch was a gold plaque on the centre console highlighting the LE's place at the end of the Turbo's 15-year tenure as one of the most fearsome sports cars ever produced.According to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this very special 'C16' (UK-supplied) 5-speed, 911 Turbo LE was delivered on the 4th August 1989 and is finished in the striking combination of Metallic Baltic Blue with a full White Leather interior. The car has covered just over 30,000 miles in the hands of its four former keepers who, judging by its condition, have all been fastidious about looking after this rare car.Accompanying this 930 Turbo 'LE' is an impressive history file with all the relevant books and manuals present. The service book shows the most recent service was carried out by respected specialists, Hexagon Classics of North London, in late 2014 when the mileage was 29,929 and it has only covered a few miles since, having formed part of our vendor's significant private collection from 2015. Due to limited time and availability, our vendor feels that it's time someone else was able to enjoy ownership of the ultimate incarnation of the legendary 930 Turbo. The car will come to auction with a fresh MoT Certificate and is very sensibly guided considering its rarity and provenance.These last 53 Limited Edition, five-speed, cars are arguably the most collectable of the 21,589 Turbos built over the models 14-year life and this fabulous Baltic Blue example represents an exclusive and exhilarating ownership proposition.

1958 Porsche 356A

1958 Porsche 356A

Lot # 209 (Sale Order: 9 of 42)      

Fully restored and properly engineered by marque specialistsEligible for International events with proven abilityA well-known and respected car. Magazine featuredDiscerning specification and appearance Long and dutiful ownershipWithout Porsche's diminutive 356, the company would not be where it is today and over 76,000 were built from 1948 to 1965 in Coupe, Cabriolet, and Speedster body style. The first major update to the 356 platform was the 356 A, which was introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1955 and featured a curved windscreen, slightly modified suspension, and a new, more powerful, 1600cc engine. These cars also received a new instrument panel, which included a tachometer and a fuel gauge, and also featured a lowered floor, which helped to improve the legroom.The car presented here is a 1958 Porsche 356 A Coupe which our vendor has owned and campaigned for over 20 years. The car is a fast road/classic rally-prepared car with period modifications (FIVA papers 1999). This thorough conversion work was carried out by marque specialist Barry Curtis and is fully documented in numerous invoices in the car's history file. On-going maintenance of the engine and chassis has subsequently been carried out by Barry Curtis and more recently Mike Smith of PRS Services and Tarduff Motors of Linlithgow. This special car has been featured in a number of magazines over the years including a major feature in 'Classic Car' in 1998.At the heart of the car is a 1720cc engine which, along with the running gear, was fully re-built by Barry Curtis utilising period-correct oversized aluminium pistons and barrels, Zenith NDX carburettors, an additional in-line oil filter and a bespoke Barry Curtis sports exhaust. The engine is currently set-up for fast road/rally driving with a 4-speed gearbox with three close ratios and a long fourth gear. The car benefits from being rewired with 12 Volt electrics and more durable relays and electrical circuits, plus the adoption of dual-circuit brakes, 'B' polished drums, 'B' stub front axles, Koni Classic shock-absorbers, and an uprated front anti-roll bar. Other nice features include an original 356 Carrera plexiglass rear screen with period plexiglass side windows, an aluminium engine lid, a period lightweight interior with aluminium-framed Speedster seats, a VDM aluminium steering wheel, an Eberspacher petrol heater, and a complete rally navigators' instrument panel with lighting, switchgear, auxiliary power, and original Halda Speedpilot and Tripmaster timing gear. The car currently sits on chrome wheels (+ spare) with Avon CR6 ZZ tyres.The vendor describes the bodywork as being in 'excellent condition', having been 'lightly refreshed' in 2015 by Peter O'Malley of the Eastern-Western Group in Edinburgh (who recently restored Porsche Club GB's 356). Peter stated that the car is the best 356 he and his team have ever worked on! If a new owner wanted to potentially return the car to nearer its factory-spec, some rare original parts do come with it including the wooden floorboards and ribbed rubber over-mats, glove-box door and fittings, radio blanking plate, sun visors etc.The car has proven abilities and excellent provenance, being well-known in endurance rally circles and having participated in the Liege-Rome-Liege, Coupes des Alpes, Monte Carlo, Classic Marathon, and Classic Malts amongst others, and, as it features period modifications only, it's eligible for prestige endurance rallies where originality can be a bit of an issue. It was retired from rallying in 2008 and has been dry-stored, run-up, and used only occasionally since. This charismatic little Porsche comes with masses of history, restoration photographs, invoices and other documentation supporting its adventures and it has always been serviced/maintained to the highest standards, regardless of cost.Could be a lot of fun.Further photos to follow soon....

Fully restored and properly engineered by marque specialistsEligible for International events with proven abilityA well-known and respected car. Magazine featuredDiscerni...moreng specification and appearance Long and dutiful ownershipWithout Porsche's diminutive 356, the company would not be where it is today and over 76,000 were built from 1948 to 1965 in Coupe, Cabriolet, and Speedster body style. The first major update to the 356 platform was the 356 A, which was introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1955 and featured a curved windscreen, slightly modified suspension, and a new, more powerful, 1600cc engine. These cars also received a new instrument panel, which included a tachometer and a fuel gauge, and also featured a lowered floor, which helped to improve the legroom.The car presented here is a 1958 Porsche 356 A Coupe which our vendor has owned and campaigned for over 20 years. The car is a fast road/classic rally-prepared car with period modifications (FIVA papers 1999). This thorough conversion work was carried out by marque specialist Barry Curtis and is fully documented in numerous invoices in the car's history file. On-going maintenance of the engine and chassis has subsequently been carried out by Barry Curtis and more recently Mike Smith of PRS Services and Tarduff Motors of Linlithgow. This special car has been featured in a number of magazines over the years including a major feature in 'Classic Car' in 1998.At the heart of the car is a 1720cc engine which, along with the running gear, was fully re-built by Barry Curtis utilising period-correct oversized aluminium pistons and barrels, Zenith NDX carburettors, an additional in-line oil filter and a bespoke Barry Curtis sports exhaust. The engine is currently set-up for fast road/rally driving with a 4-speed gearbox with three close ratios and a long fourth gear. The car benefits from being rewired with 12 Volt electrics and more durable relays and electrical circuits, plus the adoption of dual-circuit brakes, 'B' polished drums, 'B' stub front axles, Koni Classic shock-absorbers, and an uprated front anti-roll bar. Other nice features include an original 356 Carrera plexiglass rear screen with period plexiglass side windows, an aluminium engine lid, a period lightweight interior with aluminium-framed Speedster seats, a VDM aluminium steering wheel, an Eberspacher petrol heater, and a complete rally navigators' instrument panel with lighting, switchgear, auxiliary power, and original Halda Speedpilot and Tripmaster timing gear.

1971 Porsche 914/4 1.7

1971 Porsche 914/4 1.7

Lot # 210 (Sale Order: 10 of 42)      

Original rust-free California car, dry stored and forgotten for over 20 yearsEarly example with the 'Appearance Pack' inc. fog lights, chrome bumpers, vinyl pillars, and a leather steering wheelBelieved to be an accident-free body and never been apartRecent recommissioning work Rare in this sort of unadulterated condition The Porsche 914 (also called the 'VW-Porsche 914') was a joint effort between the two companies to produce a modern sporting car to replace the four-cylinder 912. By whatever means it came to exist, the Porsche 914 represented something very special, particularly when it graced US showrooms in 1969. The Detroit horsepower wars were raging when this unusual and beautiful Targa-roofed, mid-engined sports car arrived from Germany. It was like a tiny Ferrari or Lamborghini, approximately the kind of thing Lotus had pursued with the Europa, exotic and a bit delicate-looking. Yet fragility was not an inherent part of the equation. After all, the 914 came not from some small workshop in limited numbers but from Porsche, which was part of the great German automotive complex. In its earliest form, the 914 was powered by a fuel-injected 1.7-litre flat-4 engine, based on the Volkswagen air-cooled engine, developing a modest 80bhp, to counter this the engine was mid rather than rear-mounted, ensuring the little 914 was blessed with excellent handling, aided by an all-round independent suspension.The Targa roof clipped neatly out of the way to the underside of the boot-lid when you wanted fresh air and set a fashion that cars such as the Fiat X1/9 would follow well into the 1980s. In 1973, the 1.7 was joined by a 2.0-litre flat-four, and the following year the smaller engine's capacity was increased to 1.8 litres. The car presented here is a 1971 Porsche 914 1.7 and is a highly original example, having never been restored. It is believed to retain both its factory-supplied mechanicals and panels, coming from the dry states of California where it has remained unmolested since 1971. The Lemon Yellow paint and chrome-work have recently been refreshed and now, complete with its CoA, recent MoT, mechanical overhaul, and a full service, you would struggle to find a more original 914.

Lot # 211 (Sale Order: 11 of 42)      

The ex-RUF factory press car - as featured in the famous Nurburgring press video and on the front cover of Marc Bonger's famous book, 'Porsche and Ruf Sportscars' Left-hand drive with a very impressive specification including four-wheel drive, 550 bhp, and 6-speed manual Rebuilt by RUF in 2006 and speedo head zeroed. Sold to a private customer in NorwayComing from a significant private collection with a recent service by Porsche Centre Son in Norway, July '16 Currently showing 48,000km (post-rebuild). Ballistic performance and special provenance - very special Founded in 1939 in Pfaffenhausen, Bavaria, 'RUF Automobile GmbH' is a name now synonymous with Porsche, having produced some of the quickest, most exclusive and certainly the most exciting cars of the last 45 years. By 1977, RUF had gained further recognition for adding power to the then-new 930 Turbo, establishing themselves as turbocharging maestros, and producing their own 3.3-litre factory-beating version. Since Porsche only produced Turbos with a four-speed gearbox, by 1981 RUF was offering its version with their own five-speed gearbox fitted - perfectly illustrating RUF's self-confidence and belief in their own technical abilities.

With the arrival of Porsche's 996 Turbo in showrooms in late 1999, RUF commenced designing their own particular version of Germany's latest Supercar. Their new 'RTurbo' was to be based on the 996 Turbo's drivetrain with customers able to order their RTurbo with either all-wheel drive, or for an added cost, rear-drive only. The drivetrain consisted of a Porsche GT2 transaxle, a stronger upgraded clutch, a limited slip differential and 4-wheel drive. The sports suspension included specially tuned Bilstein gas-pressure shock absorbers, stiffer springs and, in place of the standard Turbo brake system, customers could choose extremely durable ceramic brakes as an added-cost option. Wheel choices were 18' RUF modular wheels or 19' RUF aluminium alloys. Inside the instrument panel housed special RUF instruments with green markings, a special sports steering wheel, and lightweight shell seats.Buyers could also choose between the traditional RUF narrow Carrera body or the more dramatic turbo wide-body and subsequently, the RTurbo was available in both coupe and cabriolet form. The body was fitted with a modified nose with additional vent slots at the top and RUF air dam below, aerodynamically optimized RUF outside mirrors, and a modified, electrically adjustable rear spoiler. Side air-inlets for the intercoolers were inset above the wheel arches, putting them closer to the intercoolers.Output of the water-cooled 3.6-litre twin-turbocharged engine was initially raised to a reliable 520hp by adopting redesigned KKK turbochargers, a modified engine control module, GT3 engine mounts, upgraded valve train, a modified VarioCam system and a bespoke RUF exhaust system with a bypass valve. To safely extract the maximum torque of 546lbft, vehicles with a six-speed manual transmission were equipped with a reinforced clutch, however, a five-speed Tiptronic S was available as an option.The RTurbo could accelerate to 62mph in a scant 3.7 seconds and, depending on gearing, reach a top speed between 205 and 214mph. RUF soon launched the next performance level of the RTurbo with output increased to 550hp (eventually 590bhp) and an incredible 575lbft of torque edging the top speed up to 218mph.Our vendor confirms that this, very special, left hand drive RUF R Turbo was indeed the RUF factory press car used in the early 2000s, is the actual car that was used in the famous promotional film around the Nurburgring, and has also featured on the front cover of the famous book 'Porsche and RUF Sportscars', written by Marc Bongers. ***Please note that this lot is subject to VAT on the full purchase price (both on the hammer price and commission)’.***

1966 Porsche 912

1966 Porsche 912

Lot # 212 (Sale Order: 12 of 42)      

Early, short wheelbase, left-hand drive 912 with the simple 3-dial dashboardA super original example, superbly restored. Factory option wooden steering wheelEngine rebuilt by HP Motorsport 700 miles ago. The engine bay is a pictureClassic shape. Unadorned and unmolested, an absolute delightThe Porsche 911 was introduced in 1963 to great acclaim and has become one of the world's most enduring sports car designs. In replacing the 356, customers immediately noticed the differences from its predecessor, as in addition to being more modern and more powerful, it was also considerably more expensive, especially in the US. In Europe too, this was a problem, so to remedy this, a year after 911 production commenced, Porsche had a bit of a rethink and introduced the similarly bodied 912 as an entry-level/transitional model with the new car entering production in April 1965. Essentially a 911 fitted with the well-established 1600cc 356-type flat four, the 912 was a very capable modern sports-car in period, but was importantly more affordable, selling at near-356 prices. The 912 produced 90bhp, some 40 horsepower less than the 911's six-cylinder engine, but this deficit was offset by significantly reduced weight, resulting in a better-balanced car with greatly improved road manners and better economy. The combination of the four-cylinder engine and the 'slippery' 911 shape was capable of achieving 30 mpg. This new model had all the looks and style of the 911 whilst sharing its gearbox, monocoque steel chassis, independent front torsion bar and trailing arm rear suspension, and all-round disc brakes. Despite being down on power, the agile 912 had a respectable top speed of 119mph, while the UK list price of £2,467 undercut the 911 by around 16%. A little over 30,000 examples were produced at Karmann's works (Porsche's factory was fully occupied with the 911) between 1965 and 1968, and today the 912 is a relative rarity when compared with its better-known sibling.This little 912 is finished in Light Ivory and left the production line on the 10th of November 1965 prior to being shipped to the US in early 1966. It's a left-hand drive, short wheelbase car with the early three-dial dashboard and was specc'd from new with Chrome Plated Perforated Disc wheels, a wood rim steering wheel, seat belts and two fog lights. According to our vendor 'I bought the car 3 years ago from a dealer that had imported it from California and had stored it for 15 years, the car was in good condition with very little rust to any of the body panels. Unfortunately, the car did not come with any service history' He has spent the last three years totally restoring the Porsche including a back to bare metal respray in its original Light Ivory (6604), all new suspension, brakes, rubbers, etc. The engine has had a total rebuild by HP Motor Sport and the car has only travelled 700 miles since completion.He has obviously put an emphasis on originality as the car looks pure 1966. The paintwork looks excellent, the interior crisp and period correct, and the engine bay is almost Concours. We don't think the lack of US history really matters as the car is what it is - a well restored, good-looking, early SWB 912 that stands well and is very sensibly guided for a model that becomes more popular every year.

1996 Porsche 911 (993) Turbo

1996 Porsche 911 (993) Turbo

Lot # 213 (Sale Order: 13 of 42)      

A right-hand drive, UK-supplied 993 Turbo supplied by AFN Porsche Looks purposeful in 'Triple Black' Excellent condition throughoutOfficial Porsche performance upgrades in 1996, 2001. Producing 470 bhp at one pointComplete with a VOSA MoT History and Service Summary62,745 miles (warranted) and a fresh MoT In period, there was simply nothing to touch the 993 Turbo The 993 Turbo, introduced in mid-1995, retained a tight hold on the torch of the most powerful 911 variant whilst continuing the general development and improvements to the breed as a whole. Amongst the new features on the Turbo was an electronically controlled, viscous coupling, all-wheel-drive system, something Porsche had not offered on a turbocharged model since the 959 and a system that greatly improved the driveability of the car. Under the engine lid, now topped with a sculpted spoiler tail with downturned edges, lived the 3.6-litre, flat-six force-fed by twin K16 turbos. Combined with bigger brakes, fatter tires, a wide body and lower stance, the 993 Turbo was one of the fastest cars on the planet. With all four wheels helping to evenly distribute great handfuls of power, 0-60mph was dispatched in a staggering 3.7 seconds, 100mph whistled by in a further 5.7 seconds, and the linear forward thrust continued until the speedometer needle had said goodbye to 180mph and you were on conversational terms with the horizon. This, right-hand drive, UK-supplied 993 Turbo, was supplied by AFN Porsche and first registered on the 12th January 1996. It's finished in Black with a black interior and black carpets, a colour combination that in a vehicle with the Turbo's low stance tends to suggest, if not menace exactly, more of a 'do not mess with me' seriousness.With the car is a comprehensive summary of the service history and any upgrades, and from this, we can see that at its first service, the car was fitted with an OPC Power Upgrade Kit at a cost of £5,806. The following 6 services were all at Official Porsche Centres until on 26/04/2001, with the mileage at 18,908, it was sent to Tech 9 for some serious upgrades. These included '470 bhp performance upgrade including adjustable PSS9 Bilstein suspension and anti-roll bars, 2 x KKK 16/24 Turbos, 100-cell cats, Turbo S tailpipes, Sport clutch/flywheel, a reprogrammed ECU, plus a top-end rebuild.' The invoice for this amounted to a, not inconsiderable, £14,873.10The following eleven services were routine with discs, pads, turbo hoses etc and on 23/01/2009, with the mileage at 57,121, the Porsche benefitted from a 24,000-mile service at Peter Yule and Son and, in addition to the normal service items, the battery was replaced and four new tyres were fitted to the newly refurbished wheels.. In addition, various electrical maladies were cured, new bumper mounts were fitted, and they removed the rear bumper to check for bodywork corrosion but found none (£3,417). Servicing and maintenance have been continued at regular intervals and in addition, the Knock Sensors were changed a couple of times (2010/11). The car remained a bit of a beauty queen and, in 2011, was proudly displayed on their trade-stand by vehicle presentation specialists, 'Polished Bliss', as an indication of the results customers might expect to achieve if they signed up for their 'Full Enhancement Detail' programme, an accolade for the Turbo, however, the car's owner at the time was charged £672 for the privilege. On 28/03/2012, at 59,287miles, the Porsche was treated to a 'Full suspension refresh' by 'Centre of Gravity' at a cost of £2.751.With 62, 000 miles currently indicated and a fresh MoT, this superbly presented 993 Turbo will reward any inspection and would be a serious addition to any collection of air-cooled Porsches.

These included '470 bhp performance upgrade including adjustable PSS9 Bilstein suspension and anti-roll bars, 2 x KKK 16/24 Turbos, 100-cell cats, Turbo S tailpipes, Sport clutch/flywheel, a reprogrammed ECU, plus a top-end rebuild.' The invoice for this amounted to a, not inconsiderable, £14,873.10The following eleven services were routine with discs, pads, turbo hoses etc and on 23/01/2009, with the mileage at 57,121, the Porsche benefitted from a 24,000-mile service at Peter Yule and Son and, in addition to the normal service items, the battery was replaced and four new tyres were fitted to the newly refurbished wheels.. In addition, various electrical maladies were cured, new bumper mounts were fitted, and they removed the rear bumper to check for bodywork corrosion but found none (£3,417). Servicing and maintenance have been continued at regular intervals and in addition, the Knock Sensors were changed a couple of times (2010/11). The car remained a bit of a beauty queen and, in 2011, was proudly displayed on their trade-stand by vehicle presentation specialists, 'Polished Bliss', as an indication of the results customers might expect to achieve if they signed up for their 'Full Enhancement Detail' programme, an accolade for the Turbo, however, the car's owner at the time was charged £672 for the privilege. On 28/03/2012, at 59,287miles, the Porsche was treated to a 'Full suspension refresh' by 'Centre of Gravity' at a cost of £2.751.With 62, 000 miles currently indicated and a fresh MoT, this superbly presented 993 Turbo will reward any inspection and would be a serious addition to any collection of air-cooled Porsches.

1963 Porsche 356 C Carrera 2 2000 GS Coupe

1963 Porsche 356 C Carrera 2 2000 GS Coupe

Lot # 214 (Sale Order: 14 of 42)      

Extremely rare and desirable, one of only six right-hand drive Coupes of its type built Bali Blue with black leather interior and sunroof. Matching numbers 4-cam Carrera engine (type 587/1 plain-bearing) with 130 bhpEngine rebuilt in 2006 by Manfred Knebel and has been maintained by marque expert, Lee Maxted-Page, in recent years Concours condition and very rare. A remarkable opportunity Featuring a 130 bhp, 1,966cc, DOHC, air-cooled horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine fuelled by a pair of Solex 40 PII-4 carburettors, a four-speed manual transmission, independent front and rear suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes, the 356C Carrera 2 (2000GS) was undoubtedly the top of Porsche's product line in 1964. At virtually double the price of a standard 1600cc pushrod 356, they were very expensive and consequently only sold in small numbers. According to the reference book by Carrera historians Sprenger and Heinrichs, only 101 Type-C Carrera 2, 2-litre Coupes were constructed from 1963 to 1965 and it's believed that only six of these left the factory in right-hand drive.The main reason for the GS2000's extra cost was its highly complex four-cylinder, 2-litre, quadruple-camshaft engine which had been destined for the legendary competition focussed, 550 Spyders and had continued to be developed before being fitted to the 356 in 1962/3. Equipped with a stronger Hausermann clutch and taller gearing, these Carreras were capable of reaching 60 mph in about nine seconds and managing a top speed of 130 mph, with the engine revving to its 7,000-rpm redline in fourth gear, pretty quick for the early sixtiesThe coachwork was very similar to that of the standard coupes but had a number of subtle modifications. Among them was the use of front bumper guards (without exhaust ports) at both ends. There were also changes to accommodate improved engine cooling, the most important of which was the installation of a pair of small auxiliary oil radiators, mounted one to a side behind the horn grille openings in the nose. The horn grilles themselves were deleted to improve airflow. These new Type 587 two-litre engines could be distinguished from the earlier 1600 pushrod units by their rectangular camshaft covers and 12-volt electrical systems. A pair of Solex 40PII-4 downdraft carburettors sat on top and they were fed by a single electric fuel pump. The fuel tank was slightly larger (110 litres) than that of the pushrod 356 C. To ease access to the spark plugs, small access panels were installed inside the rear wheel wells. The transmission was a fully synchronized Type 741 four-speed gearbox and the improved performance mandated better stopping ability so the new car was equipped with Porsche's new ATE disc brakes at each corner, the first Porsche ever to feature four-wheel disc brakes.Ordered new in the special order colour of Bali Blue (6412) with a black leather interior and sunroof, this extremely rare and desirable Porsche 356C Carrera 2 2000 GS Coupe is, we believe, one of just six right-hand drive Coupes of its type built. Just five owners have had the chance to enjoy this special car and it remains complete with its original matching numbers 2000 cc 4-cam Carrera engine (Type 587/1 plain-bearing, 130 bhp). It was originally supplied to successful 1960's Ferrari privateer racing driver Chris Kerrison, who also owned, at that time, the famous ex-Stirling Moss/Graham Hill Le Mans Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione #2735GT. Kerrison campaigned the Ferrari extensively throughout Europe between 1962-1964 and whilst the Porsche was not itself raced during this period, he kept the car registered on German plates in the UK and covered the road miles between European circuits and events in it. In 1978, the car was acquired with 20,000 miles recorded by its second owner, well-known Essex-based Porsche Club member, John Hearn.Hearn also opted to keep the car registered on foreign plates until finally selling it in 1982 to respected German-based 4-cam Porsche engine specialist, Manfred Knebel. The car remained in Germany in the ownership of Knebel for over 20 years. During this time he maintained the car himself and fully rebuilt the engine in 2006 just prior to selling it to its fourth owner, John Ruston, who imported the car into the UK and registered it for the first time on British plates. In Ruston's ownership, #127338 was regularly maintained by the acknowledged expert, Lee Maxted-Page and successfully competed in the 2007 Tour de Espana-Portugal, achieving 2nd place overall in the regularity section.Our vendor purchased #127338 in 2010 to add to his significant private collection and during his ownership, it has once again been looked after by Lee Maxted-Page. As you would expect, this stunning 4-cam Carrera is in truly fabulous condition and, indeed, was entered into the 2012 Salon Prive Concours d'Elegance, Class C - 'Closed sports cars from the swinging sixties.'The Porsche is accompanied by its original books and m

1998 Porsche 911 (993) Turbo (factory 'S' spec)

1998 Porsche 911 (993) Turbo (factory 'S' spec)

Lot # 215 (Sale Order: 15 of 42)      

Factory enhanced to 'Turbo S' specification by Porsche at the request of a collectorRight-hand drive and just 42,000 milesComprehensive main-dealer service historyOffers great value given its tempting guide price The 993 was the final generation of air-cooled 911s, and as such will always have a special place in the affections of Porsche enthusiasts. It is also widely said to be the last of the 911s that were built whilst engineering integrity overruled accounting pressures at Porsche. Twenty years on, it still looks modern - a truly timeless design. The model was launched in the autumn of 1994 and was claimed to be 80% new. The bodywork was altogether more curvaceous, with a number of new panels and the overall look was much smoother and more integrated but, importantly, this new style was still every inch a 911 in the traditional manner. The new model introduced a new multi-link rear suspension, giving greater driver confidence, less road noise and excellent ride quality. Designed to give a level of passive rear-wheel steering (the 'Weissach effect'), affecting the way the suspension behaved under cornering, braking, and acceleration, it transformed the 911. It was also the first 911 to be equipped with power steering and an advanced ABS system. The 993 Turbo, introduced in mid-1995, retained a tight hold on the torch of the most powerful 911 variant whilst continuing the general development and improvements to the breed as a whole. Amongst the new features on the 993 Turbo was an electronically controlled, viscous coupling, all-wheel-drive system, something Porsche had not offered on a turbocharged model since the 959 and a system that greatly improved the driveability of the Turbo and made the outer limits of this amazing car's handling that bit more approachable. The most revered Turbo model of the 993-generation is the Turbo 'S', introduced as the first-ever model of its kind in 1997. The Turbo S was a big step up over the standard 911 Turbo in terms of performance and price, with a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds, it could hit 100 mph from a standstill in 8.9 seconds. The specification included a number of unique features including yellow brake callipers, a bespoke rear spoiler, polished five-spoke Turbo S wheels, an 'Aerokit' front spoiler, an air intake in the rear wings, and four exhaust pipes at the rear. Inside, the 911 Turbo S luxuriated in carbon fibre trim dramatically contrasting with the softest of leathers.The Turbo S was special and getting your name on the waiting list to buy one was nigh on impossible unless you were very closely related to a Dealer Principal! Production was limited to a total of just 345 examples, all built by Porsche's Exclusive department, with the UK receiving an allocation of only 26 RHD cars. Last year, Silverstone Auctions were privileged to have been asked to sell a UK-supplied 993 Turbo S, and we were delighted to see it achieve a remarkable £253,125. The car presented here is a 1998 Porsche 911 (993) Turbo which was enhanced to 'S' specification by Porsche, at the factory, via their Exclusive Department, at the request of a prominent Porsche collector. Consequently, it was fitted with all the correct and distinctive features of a Turbo S, including the M64.60 engine with the larger KKK16 twin turbochargers, giving the requisite 450 bhp, plus all the aerodynamic, visual and interior enhancements (to European market specification). The car is believed to have 43 M-code options fitted, being one of the very last 993 Turbo models produced. The car was dispatched on July 1998, through LSM Distributors Ltd., to its first owner in South Africa where it became the 9th Porsche in his collection. Subsequently, the car was bought by our vendor, himself a car enthusiast and collector, and kept in the UK. This striking car, in desirable Arctic Silver paintwork, has covered just 68,000 kilometres (42,000 miles) and has been comprehensively main-dealer serviced from new. It drives and performs as well as you'd expect from such a 'halo' Porsche model. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very special car, at what is a very tempting guide price, especially when you consider you get all the equivalent specification, performance and appearance of a £200,000-plus model which, in RHD form, are very few in number and are hardly ever offered for sale on the open market.

1983 Porsche 928S

1983 Porsche 928S

Lot # 216 (Sale Order: 16 of 42)      

Lovely, right-hand drive, UK (C16) car shipped to Hong Kong for Sir John BondFinished in Metallic Silver with a Black leather interior and cream carpetsElectric sunroof, automatic transmission, passenger door mirror, and a leather storage boxIn January 2017 the engine was stripped and rebuilt by '928 Spares' of StroudOnly 51,000 miles and freshly MoT'd Critics immediately recognised the advances the 928 had made over the 911, and the car was universally praised as one of the greatest GT cars of all time. It handled, it was quick, it looked fantastic and it was comfortable. With the 928, Porsche created a serious long-distance grand touring car that could also tackle twisting B-roads with ease, thanks to super-direct steering, 50/50 weight distribution and a clever 'Weissach' rear axle that kept the car firmly planted on the road. Many testers found that their nerve ran out long before the 928's grip.If the 928 attracted any criticism at all, it was that it wasn't quite quick enough. The original 4.4-litre engine generated 240 bhp but, mated to a relatively heavy car, the performance didn't match the 911. So Porsche introduced the 928 S fitted with a 4.7-litre version of the engine and generating 310 bhp. This began to deliver the car's true potential, achieving a 0-60 mph time of around 7.0 seconds. But the larger engine's real trump card was its torque-rich in-gear acceleration around the mid-range - 50-70 mph sprints or indeed any acceleration from 3,000 rpm is in the supercar league. Offered here is a lovely example of a Porsche 928S that has covered only 51,000 miles with an interesting history. Originally built to UK C16 specification, it was exported to Hong Kong under the factory 'tourist scheme' for Sir John Bond who was CEO of HSBC at the time. After finishing his posting, the Porsche was shipped back to the UK and registered in his home city of Norwich with the registration Q75 HEX. The second owner was Mary Jo Jacobi who was MD of Lehman Brothers Europe and was living in London. The history file contains various communications both with Porsche and the Hong Kong dealer initially covering the delivery which confirms its HK registration and the relevant procedures which allow this car to be re-imported tax-free. Any potential buyer should assure himself that it is indeed the case with the relevant authorities. The history file contains records of the subsequent owners and many older MOTs.Finished in Metallic Silver with a black leather interior and cream carpets, the Porsche's original specification included an electric sunroof, automatic transmission, passenger door mirror, and leather storage box in the rear. In January 2017 the engine was stripped and rebuilt by '928 Spares' of Stroud.With comparatively low mileage and professional ownership, this 928S has stood the test of time well. It presents well with a lovely interior and a very tidy engine bay and sits exactly as it should. All in all a really good example of these Grand Tourers which continue to gain momentum in the market

1998 RUF BTR2 993 Turbo

1998 RUF BTR2 993 Turbo

Lot # 217 (Sale Order: 17 of 42)      

A RUF-made 'W09' chassis number car, collected new by our vendor from the factory1 of 5 RHD BTR2 models (18 examples in total)Fastidious ownership and maintenance history420bhp, 0-62mph 4.1 secs and 191 mphIntegrated roll cage Founded in 1939 in Pfaffenhausen, Bavaria, 'RUF Automobile GmbH' is a name now synonymous with Porsche, having produced some of the quickest, most exclusive and certainly the most exciting cars of the last 45 years. In 1974, Alois Ruf Jn. took over his father's enterprise, 'Ruf Auto', a successful bus-manufacturing firm, but young Alois was more interested in sports cars, specifically the Porsche 911. In 1975, the first RUF-enhanced Porsche quickly helped establish them a reputation as one of the best tuners of the marque around. By 1977, RUF had gained further recognition for adding power to the then-new 930 Turbo, establishing themselves as turbocharging maestros, and producing their own 3.3-litre factory-beating version. Since Porsche only produced Turbos with a four-speed gearbox, by 1981 RUF was offering its version with their own five-speed gearbox fitted - perfectly illustrating RUF's self-confidence and belief in their own technical abilities.Such advancements meant that, also in 1981, RUF secured 'manufacturer status' and, when considering any car titled a 'RUF', an important distinction must be made between a 'RUF-built car' and a 'RUF-enhanced car'. Due to being officially recognised as an automobile manufacturer by the German government, every RUF-built car has a VIN starting with 'W09' and is registered as a RUF (not a Porsche). These examples leave the Porsche factory as bodyshells and componentry and are sent straight to RUF to fully re-engineer and assemble from the ground up.In 1983, RUF produced the 'BTR 3.4' (the company's first type-approved car), and the 'BTR' moniker made its first appearance. This turbocharged, 374bhp model was disarmingly discreet and started the RUF theme of offering customers a complete and bespoke RUF-made model in narrow body package (the BTR 3.4 utilised the 911 SC as a platform). The BTR model won many accolades for its performance and reliability and was later joined by its big brother, the CTR, which arrived with some aplomb. In April 1987, RUF's status (and exposure) hit new heights with its participation in 'Road and Track' magazine's top-speed shootout. RUF brought along its newest model, the CTR (Group C Turbo RUF), to Volkswagen's test track at Ehra-Lessien in Germany and there, this rather tame-looking 911 (except for its yellow paint), saw off all the opposition by topping an incredible 211 mph. A photographer named John Lamm witnessed the record and christened the car 'Yellowbird.' Subsequently, the RUF CTR 'Yellowbird' achieved the accolade of the world's fastest production car, which was again reinforced in 1988 when another automotive magazine oversaw it pass through Nardo's speed traps at 212.5 mph, being quicker than both a Porsche 959 and Ferrari F40. In 1989, test driver Stefan Roser drove the 'Yellowbird' around the Nurburgring, with the laps being captured on in-car camera. This footage was released by RUF in a ground-breaking, enthralling, and influential video titled 'Faszination on the Nurburgring', with both the footage and car now having true cult status. These exploits really put RUF on the map, establishing it as the maker of some of the most special and capable cars on the planet. Their stature is not to be underestimated.At the end of 1987 RUF offered its CTR 'Yellowbird' models for sale, commanding a price tag in excess of $220,000. It is believed that RUF only made 29 examples (these being RUF-made cars), whilst maybe a further 20-30 examples were converted from customers' cars. Not a company to rest on its laurels, over the years RUF sought to advance both their BTR and CTR models and following on from the 964-based BTR, in 1994, shortly after Porsche introduced the 993 Carrera, RUF launched the 993-based 'BTR2'.As in years gone by, RUF beat Porsche to the marketplace with a turbocharged version of their latest model. Unlike Porsche though, whose own 993 Turbo would be an all-wheel drive, wide-body only model, RUF envisaged the BTR2 to be a rear-wheel drive, narrow-bodied coupe, in keeping with the original BTR ethos (but customers could specify a wide-body and/or a cabriolet if they preferred). As it turned out, at the end of the RUF BTR2 production run of just 18 examples (RUF-made-'W09' chassis number), 15 were coupes and 3 were cabriolets, with a total of only 5 cars being in right-hand drive.Unlike Zuffenhausen, which for their 993 Turbo opted to fit twin K16 blowers, RUF employs a single KKK turbo to achieve an identical boost of 11.6psi. To ensure the engine can cope with the increased pressure, a set of specially engineered Mahle pistons are installed to reduce the compression ratio from the Carrera's standard 11.3:1 to 8.4:1, with the same 3600cc capacity.

A RUF-made 'W09' chassis number car, collected new by our vendor from the factory1 of 5 RHD BTR2 models (18 examples in total)Fastidious ownership and maintenance history...more420bhp, 0-62mph 4.1 secs and 191 mphIntegrated roll cage Founded in 1939 in Pfaffenhausen, Bavaria, 'RUF Automobile GmbH' is a name now synonymous with Porsche, having produced some of the quickest, most exclusive and certainly the most exciting cars of the last 45 years. In 1974, Alois Ruf Jn. took over his father's enterprise, 'Ruf Auto', a successful bus-manufacturing firm, but young Alois was more interested in sports cars, specifically the Porsche 911. In 1975, the first RUF-enhanced Porsche quickly helped establish them a reputation as one of the best tuners of the marque around. By 1977, RUF had gained further recognition for adding power to the then-new 930 Turbo, establishing themselves as turbocharging maestros, and producing their own 3.3-litre factory-beating version. Since Porsche only produced Turbos with a four-speed gearbox, by 1981 RUF was offering its version with their own five-speed gearbox fitted - perfectly illustrating RUF's self-confidence and belief in their own technical abilities.Such advancements meant that, also in 1981, RUF secured 'manufacturer status' and, when considering any car titled a 'RUF', an important distinction must be made between a 'RUF-built car' and a 'RUF-enhanced car'. Due to being officially recognised as an automobile manufacturer by the German government, every RUF-built car has a VIN starting with 'W09' and is registered as a RUF (not a Porsche). These examples leave the Porsche factory as bodyshells and componentry and are sent straight to RUF to fully re-engineer and assemble from the ground up.In 1983, RUF produced the 'BTR 3.4' (the company's first type-approved car), and the 'BTR' moniker made its first appearance. This turbocharged, 374bhp model was disarmingly discreet and started the RUF theme of offering customers a complete and bespoke RUF-made model in narrow body package (the BTR 3.4 utilised the 911 SC as a platform). The BTR model won many accolades for its performance and reliability and was later joined by its big brother, the CTR, which arrived with some aplomb. In April 1987, RUF's status (and exposure) hit new heights with its participation in 'Road and Track' magazine's top-speed shootout. RUF brought along its newest model, the CTR (Group C Turbo RUF), to Volkswagen's test track at Ehra-Lessien in Germany and there, this rather tame-looking 911 (except for its yellow paint), saw off all the opposition by topping an incredible 211 mph. A photographer named John Lamm witnessed the record and christened the car 'Yellowbird.' Subsequently, the RUF CTR 'Yellowbird' achieved the accolade of the world's fastest production car, which was again reinforced in 1988 when another automotive magazine oversaw it pass through Nardo's speed traps at 212.5 mph, being quicker than both a Porsche 959 and Ferrari F40. In 1989, test driver Stefan Roser drove the 'Yellowbird' around the Nurburgring, with the laps being captured on in-car camera. This footage was released by RUF in a ground-breaking, enthralling, and influential video titled 'Faszination on the Nurburgring', with both the footage and car now having true cult status. These exploits really put RUF on the map, establishing it as the maker of some of the most special and capable cars on the planet.

2008 Porsche 911 (997) GT2 Club Sport

Lot # 218 (Sale Order: 18 of 42)      

Rare and original UK-supplied, RHD GT2 Clubsport523bhp, 0-62 in 3.7 secs, and a top speed of 210mphPaintwork preserved by a wrap of discrete Paint Protection FilmExcellent service history, file and original book pack Raw, pure and exciting and undoubtedly a future classic The prospect of combining the most powerful turbo engine in their range at the time, with a manual gearbox and mounting them in a rear-wheel drive, lightweight 911 was the inspiration for the legendary Porsche 911 GT2. At the same time, Porsche modify and upgrade the suspension and brakes, increase the engine output, and lighten and remove interior components where possible, with the sole aim of creating the ultimate driver's version of the car at that time. This recipe has been used with the 993, 996 and 997 versions of their iconic 911 model.This car is the GT2 version of the 911 (997), introduced in 2008 and produced until 2012. The engine uses twin, variable-geometry, water-cooled turbochargers producing a thumping 523bhp and 500 lbs foot of torque, resulting in a maximum speed in excess of 210mph and a 0-60mph time of just 3.6 seconds! Essentially it's a 997 Turbo with more power fed through the rear wheels only, a track orientated suspension and brake set up, and a GT3 interior. Raw, pure and exciting and to be taken seriously.Additionally, for those customers who wanted to go a little further, a Clubsport Package (M003) was a no-cost option and offered fire-retardant cloth lined Recaros, six-point race harnesses, a bolt-in rear roll cage, fire extinguisher and a battery cut-off switch. This GT2 Clubsport is a UK, right-hand drive car delivered and registered by Porsche Reading on 03/03/2008 and is finished in Arctic Silver with a Black interior featuring striking Red seat inserts. It's currently fitted with a conventional seat belt on the driver's side, however, the original factory 6-point harness is supplied with the car and could easily be re-fitted. Additionally, this example also benefits from the expensive application of discrete Paint Protection Film which also extends across the roof.Purchased by the current owner in March 2017, this GT2 has seen little use since. The current recorded mileage is 31,350 and the accompanying records indicate that it has benefitted from regular maintenance and servicing.

1989 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo G50

1989 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo G50

Lot # 219 (Sale Order: 19 of 42)      

1 of only 130 UK Turbo coupes for 1989 model yearSuperior G50 5-speed gearbox (1989 model year only)Fully verifiable 44,000 miles with an impressive history file The ultimate 911 Turbo incarnation Having accrued a wealth of experience of turbocharging air-cooled engines from their racing program, it seemed to make perfect sense for Porsche to utilise that knowledge by applying it to their famous rear-engined sports car, and consequently, at the 1973 Paris motor show, they unveiled a prototype turbocharged 911, the 'Type 930'. Porsche engineers tested both the 2.7 and 3.0-litre engines, with the 3.0 air-cooled flat-six (that could trace its origins back to the 911 RSR) being chosen as it produced more torque low down. By attaching a Kuhnle, Kopp and Kausch (KKK) turbocharger, the 930 was the most powerful production Porsche thus far and, suddenly, the 911 was a supercar.The production-ready 911 Turbo was shown at the Paris show in autumn 1974, and not surprisingly in an era when turbocharging was seen as rather exotic, captivated the world's motoring press. Rightly, it was billed as a supremely fast and luxurious flagship model, combining ballistic performance and head-turning looks with air conditioning, electric windows and other creature comforts. In 1977/78, capacity went up from 3.0 to 3.3 litres and an air-to-air intercooler was positioned under the rear spoiler. The spoiler was re-profiled and raised slightly to make room for the intercooler assembly, and this meant saying goodbye to the 'whale-tail' and welcoming the equally distinctive 'tea-tray'. Porsche enthusiasts often consider the 911 (930) of 1989 to be the ultimate incarnation, as it was the only year that this model was fitted with Porsche G50 5-speed gearbox, offering more flexibility and better acceleration. 1989 was also the last year of production of the iconic 930, still considered to be the finest generation of the 911 Turbo. The car presented here is a right-hand drive, UK-supplied (C16) 1989 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo coupe, and is just 1 of only 130 such examples (for the 1989 model-year). This striking car is finished in Baltic Blue Metallic paintwork with Linen Leather Sport seats and Marine Blue leather dashboard, it was supplied by AFN (Porsche) in Guilford prior to being registered on the 7th March 1989 and delivered four days later. It has accrued just over 44,000 genuine and verifiable miles, with a fully traceable ownership history. This mileage is supported by an original fully stamped-up service book and a wealth of invoices and the car is, of course. fully 'matching-numbers'. The history file also includes an old Auto-Trader advert for the car from 2002, indicating it then had 35,000 miles, plus Concours 'potential'. This came to be, as its enviable condition resulted in it winning a Porsche Club GB Concours event (for Region 18) in June 2018 and again, at a similar event, in August 2018 where it scored 28/30 for condition of bodywork and 19/20 for condition of paintwork, judged by Porsche marque experts 'Specialist Cars of Malton'.This Turbo has obviously been well-maintained and presents, both mechanically and cosmetically, in excellent condition. It has never required any major mechanical work, presumably due to its regular servicing, low mileage and garage storage. Far from being 'laid-up' for any significant period of time, this car's history shows small but regular usage, which is of course far better for its overall condition and mechanical health. It has always been serviced by reputable garages, including Tech 9, JZM, Porsche Centre Bournemouth, Camtune, Riverdale Porsche, Porsche Centre Chester, AFN Porsche Guilford and Porsche Specialists PBM. In 2016 the car benefited from a new exhaust system (with a ceramic coating on the silencer and manifold) and a new turbo, whilst the external wastegate was rebuilt also. Its latest service was carried out by Porsche Specialist Tom Ferguson on the 4th May 2018.Very few 1980's 911s - let alone the rare and more expensive 930s - have lived such a pampered life, and the benefits are clear to see with this particular car. Small details like a complete book-pack, a full set of keys, a Porsche tool-roll, compressor kit and factory stickers still in situ help support this dutiful ownership. This is a lovely genuine example of the iconic 930 Turbo.

1962 Porsche 356B Cabriolet

Lot # 220 (Sale Order: 20 of 42)      

Extensive body refurbishment and full respray along with new upholsteryNow fitted with a more powerful 1600 Super engineSupplied with a NOVA reference number, Porsche COA and California Title.Even featured in a music video! The 356 is acknowledged as Porsche's first venture into production and was a lightweight and nimble rear engined, rear-wheel-drive, two-door sporting car available in hardtop coupe and open configurations. Engineering and design innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and its popularity as a road car.The model was created by Ferdinand 'Ferry' Porsche (son of Dr Ing. Ferdinand Porsche, founder of the company), based on an original design by Porsche employee Erwin Komenda, and initially its mechanicals (including engine, suspension, and chassis) were derived from the basic Volkswagen Beetle, a product of his Father's fertile imagination.Porsche continued to develop and refine the 356 with a focus on performance, and by the late 1950s fewer parts were shared with its pedestrian cousin, and increasing success in competition and its availability worldwide resulted in the distinctive little car, in all its iterations, finding over 76,000 homes between 1948 and 1966. Today, the Porsche 356 is a highly regarded collector's car.The Porsche 356B T6 Reutter Cabriolet on offer is a 1962 model and is left-hand drive. The car is finished in its original colour combination of Ruby Red over a black leatherette interior as confirmed by the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity that is included in the file. The body has undergone significant refurbishment, taking it back to bare metal and replacing panels and eradicating rust where necessary. All joints were protected with sealant and polyester primer applied as was a protective coating of Raptor 'Bediner' to the underbody to maximise protection from the elements. Originality was important so as many parts as possible were media blasted, powder coated and reused. Before the car was re-assembled, a new 'Wocheslander' wiring harness was installed and the interior reupholstered in black. Originally fitted with a standard 1600cc engine, this car has since been upgraded to the slightly more powerful 1600 Super 616/12 engine, hence it is 'non-matching numbers', but performance is significantly improved. Now looking absolutely stunning, this little Porsche is supplied with a State of California Certificate of Title, and a NOVA reference number to enable UK buyers to proceed with registering it with the DVLA. So charming is this 356B cabriolet that it even caught the eye of a production company who featured it in a music video!

1992 Porsche 911 (964) Targa

Lot # 221 (Sale Order: 21 of 42)      

Right-hand-drive, Tiptronic, 964 C2 Targa with less than 7,000 milesEx-Sultan of Brunei. Importad in January 2018. Duties paid. UK registeredGrand Prix White with distinctive Magenta interiorRecent Full service and pre-sale prep at Cavendish Porscha (£3,600) When the 964 was first brought to market, Porsche was keen to emphasise that, although it was patently still a 911, it was in fact 85% different from the outgoing model. The design featured more integrated bumpers and a host of mechanical changes, most significant of which was the availability of four-wheel drive. The displacement was now up to 3600cc, producing 250bhp, power steering and ABS brakes were now fitted as standard, and the torsion bar rear suspension was replaced with coil springs and shock absorbers. Careful attention to the aerodynamics reduced the drag coefficient down to 0.32, and with virtually zero lift, stability and road holding at high speed were greatly improved. A new feature was the retractable spoiler which automatically extended at 50 mph and in addition to seriously increasing downforce, also doubled the volume of cooling air fed into the engine compartment. Revised instrumentation featured a large set of warning lights that were tied into the car's central warning system adding to Porsche's reputation for reliability. Fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, most variants were reputed to be capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds with a top speed of over 160mph. Initially, it was only available in four-wheel drive form, marketed as the Carrera 4 (C4), however the following year, the two-wheel drive Carrera 2 (C2) was introduced. Finished in Grand Prix White with a distinctive Magenta and Black interior, this pretty, rear-wheel drive, 'Tiptronic', 964 C2 Targa was supplied new to the household of the Sultan of Brunei. It was imported into the UK earlier this year and was registered here, with all import duties paid, in July 2018. The current indicated mileage is just less than 7,000 and the MoT is valid until January 2019.The car was taken to Cavendish Porscha in Nottingham during April for a 12,000-mile service and a full inspection and report. As well as the normal service items, plugs, hoses, clips etc. the car was fitted with a pair of Fuel Injectors, an Alarm Control Unit, new wheel nuts, various operating switches, air-con drive belt, rotor arms, wiper blades and both bonnet struts. The power steering rack was replaced and the geometry reset. There is an invoice in the file for £3,600 for all this attention. This is a lovely right-hand drive, Carrera 2 Targa from a dry part of the world, and with its tiny mileage and recent comprehensive service, has everything going for it.

Fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, most variants were reputed to be capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds with a top speed of over 160mph. Initially, it was only available in four-wheel drive form, marketed as the Carrera 4 (C4), however the following year, the two-wheel drive Carrera 2 (C2) was introduced. Finished in Grand Prix White with a distinctive Magenta and Black interior, this pretty, rear-wheel drive, 'Tiptronic', 964 C2 Targa was supplied new to the household of the Sultan of Brunei. It was imported into the UK earlier this year and was registered here, with all import duties paid, in July 2018. The current indicated mileage is just less than 7,000 and the MoT is valid until January 2019.The car was taken to Cavendish Porscha in Nottingham during April for a 12,000-mile service and a full inspection and report. As well as the normal service items, plugs, hoses, clips etc. the car was fitted with a pair of Fuel Injectors, an Alarm Control Unit, new wheel nuts, various operating switches, air-con drive belt, rotor arms, wiper blades and both bonnet struts. The power steering rack was replaced and the geometry reset. There is an invoice in the file for £3,600 for all this attention. This is a lovely right-hand drive, Carrera 2 Targa from a dry part of the world, and with its tiny mileage and recent comprehensive service, has everything going for it.

1964 Porsche 356C Coupe

1964 Porsche 356C Coupe

Lot # 222 (Sale Order: 22 of 42)      

Left-hand drive, French-supplied through Sonauto, Paris in 1964Recently bare-metal resprayed in its original colour Bali BlueSupplied with NOVA reference number and MoTIncluded in the file is a copy of the factory build sheet At first glance, the 356C, introduced in mid-1963, differed little from the prior 356B since it continued to use the T-6 body type which was introduced in 1962. Porsche, however, brought the 356 concept to its zenith with the 356C, which was available in coupe and cabriolet form. The new 356 also benefited from the addition of Dunlop four-wheel disc brakes as standard, a higher-lift camshaft for the 1600 C engine, new flat-face hubcaps and deeper bucket seats. These seats came courtesy of Porsche's acquisition of Reutter, which included the future Recaro subsidiary. 356 production peaked at 14,151 cars in 1964 which was the first year the new 911 model went on the market. Porsche did, however, continue to sell the 356C in North America through to the end of 1965. In 2004 the US magazine 'Sports Car International' named the 356C number ten on the list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. Today the Porsche 356 is a well-regarded collector's car that has stood the test of time and worldwide, thousands of 356 owners maintain the tradition, preserving their cars and driving them regularly.Presented here is a left-hand drive, 1964 Porsche 356C originally delivered through Paris Porsche dealer Sonauto, and finished in (special order) Bali Blue with a brown 'Rehbraun' interior - the colour scheme it wears today. Although its past history file is not present, it has been the recipient of a recent bare metal respray in its original Bali Blue (6412). The chrome trims, brightwork and rubbers all remain in good condition, as does the interior which appears to be original to the car, save for the wood-rim Nardi steering wheel. The manual gearbox is thought to be the original unit, however, the engine is from a period correct 356C and hence is 'non-matching'. Supplied with a copy of its original factory build sheet, NOVA reference number, and an MoT to enable prospective buyers to register the car in the UK with the DVLA, the 356C was the final evolution of the model and as such is now considered to be highly desirable.

1972 Porsche 911 2.4T

1972 Porsche 911 2.4T

Lot # 223 (Sale Order: 23 of 42)      

Very rare and desirable 'Oel Klappe', UK, right-hand drive carUK-spec with electric front windows, electric sunroof, rear windscreen wiper, and a Blaupunkt radioFull bare metal restoration by the respected marque specialists 'Export 56' in 2006Finished in special order Porsche Blue Metallic (324) and known affectionately as 'The Blue Pearl' For 1972, the 911( E series) had two major revisions, the most significant being an increase in capacity to 2341cc (known as the 2.4L) but remaining on carburettors, and externally an aggressive new front spoiler was incorporated below the bumper. For just one year of production in 1972, in an attempt to move as much weight as possible towards the centre of the car, the oil tank was repositioned inboard of the right rear wheel arch, resulting in the introduction of an external oil filler cap on the right-hand side rear wing behind a flap ('Oel Klappe'). The propensity for petrol station attendants to fill the oil tank with fuel, and the resulting warranty claims, quickly persuaded Porsche to change the design and 1972 'Oel Klappe' cars became difficult to sell, possibly resulting in their comparative scarcity today. As is often the case, that rarity has resulted in the 'Oel Klappe' cars now being the most desirable.2.4-litre 911T (Chassis #0855) was completed at Stuttgart, Zuffenhausen in December 1971 to a UK spec and was delivered to AFN Isleworth on February 21st 1972. It was finished in Porsche Blue Metallic 324 (a 'Porsche Special Order' colour in 1972) with a black and tan interior with Recaro Sports seats in beige leatherette with matching beige corduroy inserts and carpets. As with all UK delivered cars at the time, it was fitted with electric front windows, an electric sunroof, a rear windscreen wiper and a Blaupunkt radio and cassette player.Now known as the 'Blue Pearl' in deference to it's distinctive hue, this lovely 911 remains in its original specification apart from the addition of some cocoa mats in the front. It's a genuine, UK, matching numbers, 'Oel Klappe' car and is believed to be one of 106 RHD 1972 911T cars imported into the UK and apparently one of only 19 left on the Porsche GB Register. Its first proud owner was a Mr Adrian Collins Mulvaney of Clarks Green, Studley, who registered the car through AFN Isleworth on March 8th 1972. According to our vendor, he is the 11th owner of the Blue Pearl (if you count the change of hands between connected parties, spouses and the short term ownership of independent dealers) and he acquired it in 2007 from owner number 10, independent Classic Porsche dealers and restorers, 'Export 56' who had purchased it in early 2006 with the intention of returning it to its best. Export 56 are well known to us here at Silverstone and in our experience, their work commands maximum respect.Briefly, the restoration included a full bare metal respray, various new body panels including two new front wings, new indicator units, deco trims and bumper pads. A new carpet set, new front trunk carpet velour and rear seat belts. The engine bay was cleaned and repainted. The carbs were removed, stripped, rebuilt and balanced. The alternator was reconditioned and the air filter removed and replaced. New seals and gaskets were supplied and fitted where possible/accessible. A new sound deadening pad was also fitted at the time.The car is accompanied by its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, MoTs dating back to 2004 and old invoices from marque specialists Francis Tuthill in 2006 and Autofarm in 2010. However, since 2006, all restoration and most major works have been carried out by or supervised by Export 56.The Blue Pearl has appeared on numerous websites and in magazines, most notably in print on the front cover of Issue 77 of Octane (November 2009) for an article titled 'Porsche 911 - can you still find a pre-1973 bargain' It subsequently became the star of the Octane online ' Buyers guide for Early Porsche 911s'The online Classic Car marketplace website 'Trade Classics.com' also used an image of the Blue Pearl in an article detailing the history of the 911 titled 'Porsche 911 - The Devil's Own Sportscar - Part 1 the Porsche 911T'Most recently, there is a very good photo journal of the Blue Pearl by Paul Kitchen of the Machine Club - check out Paul's pictures of the Blue Pearl - These shots show also how and where the Blue Pearl has lived for the last few years.With the odometer showing a, believed genuine, 120,000 miles this car has patently been cherished by our vendor, so much so that he has generously just had the car serviced by Export 56 and supplied with a fresh MoT.http://themachineclub.com/classic-cars-and-machines/portfolios/auto-classicas-blue-pearl-100-stock-kinda/https://autoclassicastorage.co.uk/1972-2-4-porsche-911t-the-blue-pearl/

1979 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo

1979 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo

Lot # 224 (Sale Order: 24 of 42)      

Finished in Porsche Silver Metallic over black leather with Tartan Dress red/blue seat insertsComprehensive restoration work including engine and gearbox rebuildFull repaint in the early 2000sFirst registered in the UK on 1st August 1979. Great history file and a UK V5c The Porsche 930 Turbo was a genuine 'Supercar' that defined the seventies and eighties and was one of the fastest production cars available at the time. It was first seen at the 1973 Paris Auto Show and full production commenced two years later. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7 RS which was increased to 3.0 litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gained from Porsche's 917/30 Can-Am program and the brakes came directly from the Porsche 917 race car. The bodywork received special treatment resulting in one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear whale-tail. The final evolution of the 930 Turbo saw the engine capacity increased to 3299cc, with improved upgrades on the intercooler and, for some, the fitment of the G50 transmission.Offered here is a right-hand drive Porsche 911 (930) Turbo first registered in the UK on 1st August 1979 and finished in Porsche Silver Metallic with a black leather interior with Tartan Dress Red/Blue seat inserts oozing 1970's cool! During its early life, the car was serviced at John Lambs Porsche, Lancaster and Autostrasse, with the maintenance book recording 11 stamps, the last of which was in July 1996 when the car had covered 70,109 miles. In August 2001, Autostrasse were commissioned to carry out some works to the car that included, removing the engine and transmission and stripping down the gearbox, replacing all the synchromesh rings, dog rings, sliding sleeve and earth strap. The clutch disc was also replaced and the transmission refitted to the engine before re-installation. Other work at this time included a major service, replacement front callipers and pads, and a replacement heater control unit, generating a £2,942 invoice. In 2003 at the aforementioned specialist, the engine was removed from the car and dismantled. The cylinder heads were stripped and the crankshaft sent away and re-ground. The bottom of the engine was assembled, replacing the con-rods, main, big end and intermediate shaft bearings. The engine was then fully reassembled and installed back in the car at a total cost of £4,566. There are also invoices in the file from marque specialists, Power Marques for remedial work in 2008 and 2010. Over the years, the car has also been the recipient of work in other areas, including the bodywork, suspension and steering rack. The car has been in long-term storage and not used in the intervening years. In August of this year, the car was sent to HP Porsche, where it had a new clutch and battery, triggering a £2,390 invoice. This car is now showing an unwarranted 95,289 miles on the odometer and is supplied with a UK V5c, a large history file, and an MoT until 6th March 2019. This tidy, well-maintained, early 911 Turbo 3.3 is a great useable classic.
