1991 Porsche 944 S2 Coupé

1991 Porsche 944 S2 Coupé

Lot # 201 (Sale Order: 1 of 59)

For the 1989 model year, the S2 variant of the Porsche 944 was much-upgraded and replaced both the standard and 'S' spec 944s. A new aluminium cylinder block employing Formula One technology allowed a capacity increase to 3.0-litres, making it the largest production 4-cylinder engine of its time. Power was up 21bhp on the 944 S, and torque was also considerably increased. Externally, the S2 adopted the lower-drag nose and tail panels from the Turbo which, along with a taller final drive ratio, helped a manual gearbox car hit almost 150 mph and achieve a 0-60 mph time of 6.0 seconds. The Turbo's braking system was also adopted and 'Series 90' 16-inch cast alloy wheels were standard equipment. Production of the S2, and in fact the 944 as a mainstream model, ended in 1991, giving way to the 968. The car presented here is a last-year-of-production example, and is a right-hand drive C16 (UK-supplied) 1991 S2 944 Coupé;. The car has covered a conservative 63,000 miles in the hands of just two previous owners. It was delivered new through 'Five Oaks Garage' in Jersey on the 13th May 1992 but has resided for the last few years in Guernsey, with occasional trips across the water for servicing at Porsche specialists 'Marque 21' of Bridport in Dorset. Indeed, the car has an extensive service history and we are assured that it drives and performs very well. The car looks particularly striking in the rare combination of Glacier Blue Metallic (LY5U) and a blue leather interior. The 944, the 968 and even the 928 are seeing their values rise in the wake of the '911 explosion' and front-engined Porsches are having the renaissance they richly deserve. This great example, whilst being competitively guided (and with taxes paid), opens the door into a very exclusive club.

2003 Porsche 911 (996) Carrera 2 Tiptronic

2003 Porsche 911 (996) Carrera 2 Tiptronic

Lot # 202 (Sale Order: 2 of 59)

When Porsche introduced the 996 in 1998, it heralded a big departure from the timeless 911 concept, for not only was it radically different to its predecessor, but for the first time a Porsche 911 was water cooled. The changes were driven by the market which had become more demanding in terms of refinement and power and those same principles apply some 20 years later. The 996's body styling was totally new and the interior was redesigned to give the venerable 911 a new lease of life. As is the way of things, in 2002 the facelift model arrived incorporating headlight and bumper changes and an improved aero package and these subtle changes further enhanced what has been described as the 'First truly modern 911 with grand tourer and supercar performance '. Offered here is a stunning 2003, right-hand drive, 3.6-litre Porsche 996 Carrera 2 Coupé; with Tiptronic transmission and an exceptional service record. Originally supplied by Porsche Sutton Coldfield, it's finished in Silver with a wonderfully distinctive interior in Wimbledon Green optioned with matching Alcantara headlining and a top tinted screen. The service book contains seventeen stamps recording and corroborating the low indicated mileage of only 70,000. The engine had a full check over/ rebuild at 54,000 miles in 2012 by marque experts Hartech Automotive Porsche Specialists. Our vendor, who bought the car six years ago, has maintained it to an extraordinarily high level as his intention was to use it for extended continental trips and reliability was paramount. In addition to routine servicing, both mufflers have been replaced, as have the headlight units, discs, pads and all four shock absorbers. New air conditioning radiators have been fitted with the appropriate pipework and unions. This smart Porsche sits well on its four new tyres and is the proud possessor of a shiny new MOT. The overall condition of this 996 Carrera 2 is really quite special and it may well be the best available in the marketplace today at this guide price.

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Sport Coupé

1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Sport Coupé

Lot # 203 (Sale Order: 3 of 59)

The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963. These final cars (before being replaced by the more complicated 964) were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design. Launched in 1984, and reviving the 'Carrera' name for the first time since 1977, these were the ultimate 1980's sports cars. The all-alloy flat-6 engine, which had been fuel injected since 1971, received a final stretch to 3,164cc, producing a torque-rich 231 bhp - enough to propel the lithe and slippery coupé; to over 150 mph, with 0-60 mph coming up in 5.6 seconds. Cars built from September 1986 onwards were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 Getrag gearbox, but all 3.2 Carreras feature galvanized bodies, which together with Porsche's legendary build quality, ensure that these classics are long-lasting. This lovely, right-hand drive, 1988 Carrera is finished in a most desirable colour combination, gleaming Black complemented by a full Black Leather interior with red piping, and is a factory 'Sport' model with Fuchs alloy wheels, sport seats, rear seat belts, rear wiper, spoilers, Bilstein sports shock-absorbers, sunroof, and a carpeted luggage compartment. It was purchased in the UK by its current owner in 2012, who exported the car to Cyprus where it was well maintained by a local Porsche specialist for the next four years. It was subsequently shipped to The Netherlands when the current owner moved back to his home country. We understand that approximately ten years ago the car was stripped to bare metal and painted in its original black colour scheme, however. it remains in largely original condition with the only changes being the addition of wheel-spacers and a non-original radio. The accompanying MOT Certificates, service booklet stamps, and a large folder of bills detailing expenditures from both Porsche main dealers and specialist companies substantiate the indicated mileage of just over 114,000 from new. It has been well-maintained, is in good condition both mechanically and cosmetically, and has never required any major work due to its regular servicing, 'relatively' low mileage and garage storage. There surely is no better entry into 911 ownership than the 3.2 Carrera. It's the final evolution of the original, tracing its roots right back to 1966. The 964 that replaced it was substantially different and much more complex, so if you are in the market for the classic Porsche experience, this 3.2 Carrera Sport, at this guide, seems a perfect fit.

1990 Porsche 944 S2

1990 Porsche 944 S2

Lot # 204 (Sale Order: 4 of 59)

In 1989, the second series of the 944 was introduced, powered by a 210 bhp normally aspirated, double-overhead-cam 16-valve 3.0 Litre version of the 944S engine, which was the largest four-cylinder engine in production at the time. The 944S2 also benefited from a revised transmission and the gearing was tweaked to better suit the torque and peak power characteristics of the 3.0 L M44/41 powerplant. The S2 had the same rounded nose and a rear valance found on the 944 Turbo model and this was the first example of the use of an integrated front bumper, where the bumper and bonnet profiles would merge smoothly, a design feature that was to be widely adopted on production cars from the early nineties. The 944 S2 went out of production in 1991 and this example was one of the last to be delivered to the UK and was sold through Rivervale Porsche Centre in Sussex on the 14th November 1990 to its first registered keeper, Mr. Adam Worsfold. Mr. Worsfold had, together with his business partner Tony Brady, established the highly successful hi-fi and amplifier business 'ONIX' which enjoyed massive growth during the 1980s. As befitting a young entrepreneur enjoying the trappings of the boom in home music centres a white Porsche was on the cards, and the number plate H8 0NYX was an overt nod to his success. In 1991 he undertook a tour of Europe in the 944 finishing in Malta and, having parked the car near to a restaurant, it was to Mr. Worsfold's utter dismay that he returned to find an empty space. It must be stated at this juncture that HPI records are clear of any insurance claims or stolen-recovered warnings. In 2002, Mr. Worsfold returned to Malta and, as luck would have it, spotted the Porsche in a car park, however, it was never going to be a simple process and it took another eleven years whilst the car languished in a police compound until repatriation took place in 2013. Arriving back to the UK in a largely blemish free condition Mr. Worsfold spent some £16,000 on recommissioning works carried out by Porsche Centre Bournemouth and other specialists in 2016. The car is presented to auction with an MOT until December 2017 and an odometer reading of a shade under 21,500 miles (Malta is only 17 miles long). With an incredible story that deserves to be told at future car shows, and its one keeper status, this 944 offers the enthusiast an unmissable opportunity.

1984 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupé

1984 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupé

The 3.2 Carrera is revered as the ultimate development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963, before being replaced by the 964 series in 1990. These final cars were the most flexible and usable of Butzi Porsche's original design. The all-alloy flat-6 engine, which had been fuel injected since 1971 received a final stretch to 3,164 cc, giving a torquey 231hp, enough to propel the lithe and slippery icon to over 150mph, with 0-60mph coming up in 5.6 seconds. As documented in the extensive history file, this 3.2 Carrera Coupé; was first delivered on 9th November 1984 to its first owner, a Mr. Nelson of the Rolex Watch Company by AFN Porsche Centre of Chiswick. The paint code L999 is commonly known as a special-order paint code, however, basically it's just a different shade of Silver with a contrasting navy blue pin-striped interior. The Carrera was subsequently bought by its long-term owner, our vendor, on 23rd August 2002 from Hendon Way Motors. Our vendor has clearly cossetted this car during his fifteen-year tenure and it's only offered to auction due to the imminent arrival of a 1968 Corvette without enough space to store them both. The history file shows bills for many thousands spent in maintenance and the service records show services and attention at the following intervals: 513 miles 16/11/1984 AFN Porsche Centre 2,520 miles 22/1/1985 AFN Porsche Centre 7,216 miles 26/4/1985 AFN Porsche Centre 11,852 miles 19/11/1985 AFN Porsche Centre 22,110 miles 27/10/1986 AFN Porsche Centre 39,099 miles 03/08/1987 AFN Porsche Centre 52,781 miles 15/03/1988 AFN Porsche Centre 66,476 miles 03/10/1988 AFN Porsche Centre 82,034 miles 11/09/1991 AFN Porsche Centre 85,598 miles 10/03/1997 Willow Vale Porsche 89,406 miles 06/10/1997 Willow Vale Porsche 92,285 miles 25/03/1998 Willow Vale Porsche 94,927 miles 13/08/1999 Willow Vale Porsche 110,170 miles 31/01/2004 GT One Ltd 112,303 miles 11/06/2005 Newlands Motors 125,717 miles 30/07/2006 PARR Motorsport (Brakes & Service) 127,310 miles 21/08/2007 Newlands Motors 1284,28 miles 21/11/2008 Newlands Motors 129,452 miles 24/2/2009 Newlands Motors 130,671 miles 01/02/2011 Newlands Motors 133,040 miles 08/03/2013 Newlands Motors 134,580 miles 06/08/2014 Newlands Motors 135,648 miles 16/08/2017 Nine Excellence This super 911 is accompanied by a comprehensive history file, a fitted car cover, and an MOT until June 2018.

1986 Porsche 944 Turbo Coupé

1986 Porsche 944 Turbo Coupé

Lot # 206 (Sale Order: 6 of 59)

Following the international success of their nimble 924, Porsche designed an all-alloy, 2.5-litre inline-four for their new 944 which they planned to introduce in 1982. Their talented engineers were able to produce a very smooth running four-cylinder engine by utilising two counter-rotating balance shafts running at twice engine speed. The result is a large four-cylinder engine that feels as turbine-smooth as a six. Cosmetically, the 944's bodywork was revised with wider wheel arches (similar to that of the 924 Carrera GT), a fresh interior and upgrades to the brakes and suspension. With greater visual presence and the performance to match, better handling, stopping power and more creature comforts, the 944 was a natural step forward. A 'turbo' version of the 944 was always on the cards, and for the 1985 model year, Porsche introduced the 944 Turbo, known internally as the 951. Forced induction boosted the 2.5-litre engine by a healthy 60bhp, up to 217 bhp, with the clutch and gearbox uprated to suit. The Turbo also featured several other changes, such as improved aerodynamics, notably an integrated front bumper, standard external oil coolers for both the engine and transmission, standard 16-inch wheels (optional forged Fuchs alloys), and a slightly stiffer suspension set-up. The Turbo's front and rear brakes were borrowed from the Porsche 911, with Brembo 4-piston fixed calipers and 12-inch discs and ABS was also standard. The car presented here is a 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo Coupé;, and is a C16 (UK-supplied) RHD example. Finished in the classic Porsche colour combination of Guards Red with a Black leather interior, this car has been very well cared for and has been the recipient of much expenditure over the last four years, with many parts having been either replaced or fully reconditioned. The result of all this work means this enthusiast-owned car has won two Concours d'Elegance trophies for 'Best Sports Car' in 2015 and the 2nd place at a Porsche Owners' Club competition in August 2017. This show-winning standard really belies the indicated mileage of 110,000, aided further by the reassuring presence of a fully stamped-up service booklet, a large file of invoices, and its original jack and tool-roll – small but important details that point to dutiful ownership. This is a simply lovely example of one of the most sought-after Porsches from the 1990s. The 944, the 968 and even the 928 are seeing their values rise in the wake of the '911 explosion' and front-engined Porsches are having the renaissance they richly deserve. This prize-winning example is very competitively guided and could open the door into a very exclusive club.

1962 Porsche 'Standard J' Tractor

1962 Porsche 'Standard J' Tractor

Lot # 207 (Sale Order: 7 of 59)

Following spells at the Austro-Daimler, Mercedes-Benz, and Steyr companies, all of which benefited greatly from his monumental engineering prowess, Dr. Ferdinand Porsche set up his own design consultancy in Stuttgart on 25th April 1931. Dr Ing. F Porsche's most celebrated product of the 1930s was, of course, Hitler's 'People's Car - the Volkswagen - but the company was also active in other fields, literally so in the case of its tractor project. Several prototypes were constructed prior to WW2, the earliest of which were powered by petrol engines, before Dr. Porsche turned to diesel power, eventually developing a series of one, two, three and four-cylinder air-cooled engines ranging in output from 14 to 55bhp. As with all things from Dr. Porsche's fertile imagination, the tractors owed little to convention and much to creativity and efficiency and imagination. An unusual feature of Porsche's drive system was its hydraulic coupling between the engine and the gearbox, which permitted smooth, clutchless gear changes, reducing wear on the transmission components and was simple to use and maintain by unsophisticated farmers. After the end of the war, Porsche was barred from producing its own tractors and only companies that had been making tractors prior to and during the war were permitted to carry on, forcing Porsche to license its designs to other manufacturers. Agreements were concluded with two companies, Allgaier GmbH in Germany and Hofherr Schrantz in Austria, and then in 1954 Mannesmann AG diversified into tractor manufacture by acquiring the rights to Porsche's engine and Allgaier's tractor design, setting up Porsche-Diesel Motorenbau GmbH. Offered here is a fully restored Porsche 'Standard J' tractor produced in 1962 and now superbly finished in Red and Cream. Its first owner was Ludwig Obermann and the original German log book shows him as the first registered keeper from 26/10/1962 until, many years later, ownership was transferred to his son Johann in May 1978. The tractor's current owner acquired it in Germany in 1988 and imported it into England. Unusually, it's accompanied by its original German documentation together with period colour brochures. The inventory also includes spares and ancillaries, a pasture topper, a parts book, and the relevant handbooks. It has recently been serviced, and a new battery fitted, so it now starts on the button with that characteristic three-cylinder soundtrack. This rare, post-war, German tractor is eminently suitable for working a small holding or market garden, however, we suspect it is more likely to occupy a corner of an eclectic Porsche collection. In the memorabilia auction prior to the Porsche car sale, there are various tractor related items including a very rare illuminated dealer Porsche sign, an enamel sign, and other relevant period items. This is a wonderful piece of Porsche history, and extremely desirable.

1991 Porsche 928 S4

1991 Porsche 928 S4

Lot # 209 (Sale Order: 9 of 59)

Porsche's intended replacement for the 911 may not have achieved that goal, but it wasn't for a lack of performance or technological wizardry. An alloy V8 was attached to a rear-mounted gearbox, and the galvanised body had aluminium doors and bonnet, plus body-coloured plastic bumpers - pretty radical for its time. The 928 was launched to a fanfare and surprised many by being named European Car of the Year, an award that traditionally went to worthy but dull family hatchbacks. Critics immediately recognised the advances that 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. As time went on, the 928 grew ever more powerful and the S4 version that came out in 1987 had a much developed 5-litre V8 that produced 316bhp. There were a number of changes including different pistons, cylinder heads, camshafts, and larger intake valves, compared to earlier 5.0 L engines. The LH-Jetronic injection was updated, the ignition changed to the EZK system and automatics were fitted with a larger torque converter. The styling was also subtly updated with smoother nose and tail treatments that gave the car an even cleaner, sleeker look. 0-60 was now in the 5.6secs bracket and the top speed was raised to 168mph. As a true GT car the automatic gearbox, as seen in this delightful right-hand drive example, offered seamless changes perfectly complementing the long-legged 5.0-litre V8. Delivered new, we believe, to Hong Kong in 1991 in Amethyst Purple Metallic with a matching, and oh-so period, interior, this 1991 S4 was first registered in the UK on the 9th June 2003. There are invoices on file detailing quite a lot of work and attention at K2 Race Engineering and Graham Hill Motor Technicians, amongst others, and the Porsche has recently been fully serviced. The car is presented to auction in very good order with some 67,000 kilometres (42,000 miles) indicated, an MOT valid until January 2018, and the perfectly apt private registration A328 GEM. This 928's distinctive colour scheme and dramatic interior made it the ideal candidate for 'Modern Classics' magazine, and this car looks great in a recent double-page feature about the classic 928. These 928s really are quite amazing machines and look like no other car before or since with inspired styling that will never go out of date. Considering that it was Porsche's flagship model for almost two decades, with all the engineering integrity and supercar performance that this implies, it is really surprising that you can still pick them up for such modest sums today. Compared to air-cooled 911s they offer astonishing value for money, a situation that will not last much longer as prices have already begun to rise sharply. Another one to buy now before everyone else comes to the same conclusion. *The lead photograph is a library image.

1992 Porsche 944 Turbo Cabriolet

1992 Porsche 944 Turbo Cabriolet

Lot # 210 (Sale Order: 10 of 59)

Introduced in 1988, the 944 Turbo was the fastest production four-cylinder car in the world at the time. By 1989, the 'S' designation was dropped and for the last few years of production all the previous "S" enhancements became standard - including 7 inch and 9 inch wheels with 225/50 and 245/45 tyres, a high friction disc-type clutch, an external oil cooler, and a limited slip diff with 40% lockup. The engine now produced 250bhp resulting in 0-60mph in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 162mph. This 944 Turbo Cabriolet was supplied new in June 1992 and is one of the last 944 Turbos made. JCT 600 Leeds were the supplying dealer and Glenlyon Development Services of Keighley, the original owner. The second owner is our vendor - a private collector with the most amazing personal collection of classic cars featuring many different periods and marques. The history file contains many previous invoices and MOTs which confirm the cars upkeep and low mileage of just 29,600. Most of the car's miles were done early in its life, with just 3,000 miles covered since 2011. Today it is presented in exceptional condition and represents a modern classic that is both highly usable and very collectable. The electric hood works perfectly and the tonneau cover is as good as new. Well finished in the original Guards Red with a traditional black interior, we understand the car drives as well as it looks. Great looks, full matching numbers and, for those of us that prefer our classics with a few mod cons like ABS and air conditioning, ready to use and enjoy.

1968 Porsche 911 SWB

1968 Porsche 911 SWB

Lot # 211 (Sale Order: 11 of 59)

As the 911 legend has grown, so a desire for the pure, original, short-wheelbase version of Porsche's concept has increased with it. For simplicity of styling and collector's interest, it is these 'A-series' 911s, before the wheelbase was extended in August 1968, which still have an unrivaled appeal. The flat-six engine is only a 2.0-litre, but it's a highly tuned one wearing overhead cams and two triple-choke carbs, runs sweetly, and suits the handing perfectly. This Solid Tangerine, left-hand drive, matching numbers example was manufactured in 1968 for the US market and was, therefore, one of the last cars built on the original wheelbase before the LWB 'B-series' cars were introduced later that year. '118-3-0137' was supplied new on the 9th February 1968 to Colonel Rob Rodden of Carmel, Monterey. He owned the car for some 35 years and clearly applied military standards of discipline when it came to maintaining his beloved Porsche. Indeed, the very impressive service history accompanying the car shows a considerable number of service entries under his ownership. When the Colonel sadly passed away his son, Rob Jnr., felt it appropriate to part with the Porsche and there is a letter in the history file attesting to this. A later owner sympathetically restored the 911 in 2005 and the Porsche subsequently arrived in the UK in 2010 when a Mr. Sillitoe became its latest owner. There is documentation in the history file from Porsche Cars GB confirming the original 'matching numbers' that the car retains today. Our vendor purchased the car in 2014 and it has formed part of his significant private collection ever since, always dry stored and well cared for. Indeed, this actual car was used for a six-page feature in 2014 in 'Total 911' magazine's guide to buying an early 911 and was their front cover car. This car also benefits from the optional and desirable factory-fitted, 5-speed gearbox and 15 ' Fuchs alloy wheels. The very impressive history file contains the original handbook, service book and wallet, a variety of invoices, the service stamps from new, spare keys, and a fresh MOT Certificate. This is a rare opportunity to acquire an early short wheelbase A-Series car that has been expertly maintained and lovingly cared for throughout its life. Early 911s possess a certain purity of line that is a complete world away from the aerodynamic extravagances of the eighties and nineties, and in terms of style, it's these cars that engender the most appreciative glances. A well set-up and maintained early 911, driven with an intelligent right foot, will provide some of the most quintessentially rewarding driving experiences you have ever had, and even the 2-0-litre car for sale here will leave you with a serious grin.

1995 Porsche 911 (993) C2 Cabriolet Tiptronic

1995 Porsche 911 (993) C2 Cabriolet Tiptronic

Lot # 212 (Sale Order: 12 of 59)

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 993 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. 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'), thus 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. Presented here is a UK right-hand drive 1995 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera 2 Cabriolet with a Tiptronic gearbox supplied by Lancaster Porsche. Finished in the beautiful colour combination of Aventura Green Metallic with a full grey leather interior, this car was registered on 17th February 1995 to its first owner. The car is supplied with hard-backed electric sports seats, electric windows, electric wing-mirrors, remote central locking, and a Kenwood Stereo. The history file includes invoices dating back to 2002 and a raft of MOT certificates confirming its mileage. Maintenance duties have been undertaken by Porsche main agents, as well as marque specialists, with Parr Motorsport carrying out servicing annually since 2008, the last of which was on the 9th December 2016. The service book is now showing 20 stamps in total. In 2016, the car was treated to a full glass out respray and a new canvas hood, ensuring that it now looks absolutely stunning. It's supplied with its original book pack containing the driver's manuals and service book, the spare key, the UK V5c, and an MOT until 9th January 2018. Currently stored professionally and now showing 66,683 miles on the odometer, this 911 has been pampered all of its life and is now ready to find a new home.

1973 Porsche 911 2.8 RSR FIA Historic GT racecar

1973 Porsche 911 2.8 RSR FIA Historic GT racecar

Lot # 213 (Sale Order: 13 of 59)

When it comes to the 911, ask any 'Porschephile' for their opinion as to which was the greatest racing 911 ever built and quickly you will become used to hearing the acronym 'RSR'. Introduced in 1973 by the factory as an evolution of the already potent 2.7 RS, it was both an official 'works' team car built to contest International World Championship 'Group' 4 GT endurance events and was also available for privateer race teams in full competition trim. The 'RS' itself was a hugely successful development of the standard 2.4-litre flat-six. The engine was bored out to 2.7 and carefully massaged to produce 210 horsepower which was fed through a five-speed gearbox with uprated 4th and 5th cogs, all contributing to a top speed of over 150 mph. Revised and stiffened suspension and larger four-wheel disc brakes complemented the increased power and ensured the RS remained perfectly balanced. An initial order of 500 RS' was produced to meet FIA 'Homologation Requirements' but the cars were so popular that production eventually totaled some 1,580 units. The most hardcore, no-nonsense, version of these race-focused 911s was the RSR. These Rennsport specials, with their dramatic, pumped-out wheel arches, intensified the standard 2.7 RS flavour in every way. Even wider, lighter, faster, and more capable in every performance category, the RSR was the RS unrestricted, dialed in for maximum capability with scant regard for creature comforts. The formula was successful – the 2.8 RSR is still recognised today as one of Porsche's most successful race cars. Sadly, however, if the RSR was in the 'Periodic Table of Elements, it would be 'Unobtanium' as just 49 were built resulting in them rarely coming to market, and when they do, the numbers are not for the faint-hearted. Consequently, anyone wishing to experience the addictive blend of handling, balance, performance, feel and simple purity that is the RSR, has no choice but to create their own. We are pleased to offer for sale an original 1973 left-hand drive, 911T brilliantly modified to 2.8 RSR specification and homologated as an FIA Historic Race Car with a current FIA Technical Passport (Competition GT; Class GTS27). Unusually, for a conversion of this nature, the car is UK registered with an MOT and historic vehicle tax status and is ready for immediate use on the road or circuit. Chassis Number 9113100481 was originally delivered to the USA in March 1973, however much of its early history is unknown. In 1991, it was registered as belonging to Patricia J Vanleen of Baton Rouge, Los Angeles and in October 2009 was returned to Germany in the care of the S & N Automobilzentrum Aachen Gmbh. Since July 2010, the car has been the pride and joy of its current owner, our vendor. On its arrival in Germany, the decision was taken to create an accurate RSR replica using the 911T as a basis and this work was entrusted to 'Scuderia-Eleven de' with the engine left in the capable hands of Bienert Boxer-Motoren, who have over 25 years experience in preparing air-cooled Porche engines. The specification is too long to detail here but briefly; Original engine type 911/51 (2.4 Litre, 140BHP) replaced with 1974/75, 911/41 engine modified to 2.8 Litre, compression ratio 10.8: 1 producing 265 bhp with mechanical fuel injection, and twin ignition. Five-speed, 'short-shift' 915 gearbox and a ZF LSD. Front strut brace, adjustable front shocks, adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars, front and rear polyurethane axle bushes, thicker torsion bars, and steel braided brake lines. Front tyres: 215/55 R1, rear tyres 270/45 R15. Wheels front: 9Jx15 and rear 11Jx15. The bumpers, front and rear bonnets and the wings were replaced with composite parts. 'Makrolon' polycarbonate side and rear windows.Welded in multipoint roll cage. Sports steering wheel, sports seats with full harnesses and aluminium footplates. The final set-up was completed by Kadach.com for Harry Utesche at DLS Automobile in Stuttgart. Our vendor, a well-known racing driver who has raced RSRs in the past, admits 'There is no excuse or way to avoid the fact that I fell completely in love with this car some time before it came to market. For me, it was the perfect looking, quintessential 911 '. Having owned the car for the last seven years he confirms, 'It is THE most tactile, malleable and sweet performer on the circuit with very much the right amount of power matching the grip available with a performance not so far from the delightful racetrack-only Chevron B8s etc. Around Spa & Monza, it was just pure racing delight '. The new owner of this wonderful 911 has a number of options. It's a legal and perfectly usable road car, although, with a full competition suspension set-up, it wouldn't be long before you became good friends with your chiropractor, it could be developed into a pure, no-holds-barred, full house racer, or left as it is, an 'on-the-button' entry for some of Europe's most prestigious events including Tour A

1970 Porsche 911T

1970 Porsche 911T

Lot # 214 (Sale Order: 14 of 59)

Introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show the basic Porsche 911 design would run virtually unchanged for twenty-nine years. Ferdinand Porsche had been quietly working on a design since the late fifties, knowing that demand for his ever-popular 356 would eventually wane, and he would need a replacement that was fit for the changing needs of the mid-sixties. Eventually, the new car took shape on his drawing board and the 901 (later 911) was born and this design still, to this day, underpins the production of Porsche AG of Stuttgart. Before long the merits of using the Porsche 911 in competitive motorsport became apparent and history records it as one of the most successful campaigners of all time. From the 24 Hours of Le Mans to grass-roots motorsport, the 911 offered reliable performance in many guises. For 1970, the C-Series 911 was introduced with a larger cylinder bore giving a capacity of 2165cc, producing 125bhp and now badged as a "T" at this power output. Alterations to suspension pick-up points improved the handling and gave a little more steering feel. Six-inch Fuchs ' five-leaf' forged alloys were now a standard fit. This early 911 was imported into the UK from California in 2003 by its current owner with the intention of keeping it as original as possible with sensible upgrades to enable it to be used for classic rally events. It was fitted with towing eyes, bonnet straps, a fire extinguisher, Hella spotlights, and door roundels, etc. although in the event, the car was never used in rallies as other plans intervened. It was used for touring, however, and our enthusiast vendor has ' fond memories of touring the Black Forest in Germany where it never missed a beat and courted attention wherever it went '. During his tenure, the 911 received regular attention including a new steering lock, new high torque starter motor, new light assemblies, Continental Premium tyres, new indicator stalk, and relay etc. A replacement Bosch distributor with new cap, rotor arm, leads, and coil was fitted at a cost of £500, and the car benefitted from an upgraded timing chain tensioner kit including new camshaft seals at a cost exceeding £1,000. The suspension was stripped and new shocks fitted, also costing around £1,000. Provided with the Porsche are confirmation that all customs duties have been paid, the V948 Number Plate Authorisation Certificate, the V5C in the current owner's name, invoices relating to most of the above work, and the MOT expiring in September 2018. Historic road tax expires at the end of August 2018. According to our vendor, he is 'Only selling as the car is not being used nearly enough and deserves a new owner to enjoy '. Early 911s are becoming increasingly topical and this smart and sensibly guided 911T deserves a look.

Introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show the basic Porsche 911 design would run virtually unchanged for twenty-nine years. Ferdinand Porsche had been quietly working o...moren a design since the late fifties, knowing that demand for his ever-popular 356 would eventually wane, and he would need a replacement that was fit for the changing needs of the mid-sixties. Eventually, the new car took shape on his drawing board and the 901 (later 911) was born and this design still, to this day, underpins the production of Porsche AG of Stuttgart. Before long the merits of using the Porsche 911 in competitive motorsport became apparent and history records it as one of the most successful campaigners of all time. From the 24 Hours of Le Mans to grass-roots motorsport, the 911 offered reliable performance in many guises. For 1970, the C-Series 911 was introduced with a larger cylinder bore giving a capacity of 2165cc, producing 125bhp and now badged as a "T" at this power output. Alterations to suspension pick-up points improved the handling and gave a little more steering feel. Six-inch Fuchs ' five-leaf' forged alloys were now a standard fit. This early 911 was imported into the UK from California in 2003 by its current owner with the intention of keeping it as original as possible with sensible upgrades to enable it to be used for classic rally events. It was fitted with towing eyes, bonnet straps, a fire extinguisher, Hella spotlights, and door roundels, etc. although in the event, the car was never used in rallies as other plans intervened. It was used for touring, however, and our enthusiast vendor has ' fond memories of touring the Black Forest in Germany where it never missed a beat and courted attention wherever it went '. During his tenure, the 911 received regular attention including a new steering lock, new high torque starter motor, new light assemblies, Continental Premium tyres, new indicator stalk, and relay etc. A replacement Bosch distributor with new cap, rotor arm, leads, and coil was fitted at a cost of £500, and the car benefitted from an upgraded timing chain tensioner kit including new camshaft seals at a cost exceeding £1,000.

1968 Porsche 911L

1968 Porsche 911L

Lot # 215 (Sale Order: 15 of 59)

Production of the successor to the Porsche 356 began in 1964. It had appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show under the '901' banner, however, Peugeot claimed that they had a legal right to this number sequence so the 911 was born. Then, almost immediately, the extraordinary process of Porsche evolution began. One of the first upgrades came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S, which featured a better-equipped interior and a revised engine producing 160 bhp. But, by this time, approximately half of all 911s produced were exported to the USA, where the increasingly stringent emission regulations demanded changes had to be made to the original design and another significant safety change was the introduction of dual circuit brakes. However, it took Porsche time to meet these emissions targets and an interim model, the 911L, was introduced. The 911L was only built and sold in 1968 and around 450 left the factory. It featured the 911S's superior equipment level but retained the torquey 130bhp engine running on Weber carburetors. Offered here is a left-hand drive, Porsche 911L produced on 6th February 1968 and supplied to its first owner in the US through VW Pacific in Culver City, California. Finished in Polo Red with a Black leatherette interior, the car was originally supplied as a 'Sportomatic', although it now features a manual gearbox. In 1991, the Porsche returned across the Atlantic and was imported into the UK and first registered with the DVLA on 27/06/91 obtaining a UK V5c, however, an invoice from late May of that year indicates that the car's first stop after its long journey was at marque specialists Parr Garage who carefully inspected the 911 and set it up to run sweetly. Purchased by our vendor in 2006, the car has since undergone a steady programme of re-commissioning work. It was stripped, prepared, and professionally repainted in its original Polo Red and the interior has benefitted from new carpets, new vinyl covering in the rear, and a set of new, period aircraft-style, seat belts provided by Quickfit Safety Belts of Stanmore in Middlesex. The engine has been fully rebuilt by Mani Pou including the carburetors and the car has covered less than 100 miles since. Looking very smart sat on the correct 5 1/2J, 15-inch Fuchs alloys shod with new Dunlop SP10s, this is a very useable classic Porsche and is supplied with a UK V5c, its Porsche C of A, and a fresh MOT. Rarely do 911Ls come to market and this lovely Polo Red example represents excellent value.

1976 Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera Sport Coupé

1976 Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera Sport Coupé

Lot # 216 (Sale Order: 16 of 59)

The Porsche 911 'Carrera 3.0' has a very special place in the history of the 911, as it brought together elements from two of Porsche's most legendary cars. It was the latest incarnation of the Carrera name, originally introduced to the 911 series as the classic 2.7 RS in late 1972, and the Carrera 3's 2993cc engine used the same die-cast aluminium crankcase as its cousin, the newly introduced Porsche 930 Turbo'. Sold between 1976-1977, and during its short two-year lifespan only 3,687 cars were built - a tiny amount compared to nearly 58,000 911SCs and 76,500 3.2 Carreras produced. Of these, 2,564 were coupé;s, 1,123 were produced in Targa form, and only a very small number of these were manufactured in RHD. This particular UK-supplied, right-hand drive, 911 3.0 Carrera Sport was delivered to its first owner, Mr P. Arnold of Dolphin Square, SW1 on the 14th June 1976. The car is finished in Copper Brown Metallic with a Cinnamon interior, and being a Carrera Sport features options such as a Blaupunkt Bamberg radio, front and rear spoilers, the distinctive 'Whale Tail, Bilstein shock absorbers, a 5-speed manual gearbox, and wider Fuchs alloy wheels. After a handful of owners, the car was purchased by our vendor in 2008. A Porsche enthusiast at heart, he set about returning this car to its former glory with a full bare-metal, glass out repaint in its original period colour, for which a bill from respected classic car specialists, D.C.Coachworks, is included in the history file. At around the same time, the front seats were given the Southbound Trimmers treatment and are now looking superb. Throughout his ownership, the car has been serviced and maintained by Porsche Centre Tonbridge with the last service being carried out by them in June 2017. The original service book shows 10 previous stamps for servicing and maintenance over the years and included in the file are a number of old MOT certificates and relevant invoices. The top end of the engine was also rebuilt in the last few years. Supplied with a UK V5c, an MOT until 15th May 2018, and its tools and books, this lovely example now shows 144,492 miles on the odometer. This car presents a wonderful opportunity to own a well-sorted and very usable classic Porsche - retro cool at its finest!

1992 Porsche 911 (964)  RS Touring

1992 Porsche 911 (964) RS Touring

Lot # 217 (Sale Order: 17 of 59)

Following the demise of the 1973 Carrera 2.7RS, the 964 Carrera of 1991 became the next Porsche to sport the famous 'RS' designation and, like its predecessor, was a 'homologation special' originally built to race in the Carrera Cup Series which was part of the publicity machine surrounding the 964. In common with the original RS, there were essentially two different versions available, the Sport (frequently referred to as the Lightweight) and the Touring (RST). The overwhelming majority of these were Lightweights and, apart from the half-dozen, right-hand drive Touring models imported into the UK, few are thought to have reached other markets. The road-going RST had more power, more grip, and better braking than the existing 964 but, crucially, carried less weight. Its engine was a blueprinted version of the standard car's 3600cc air-cooled flat six but with a lighter single mass flywheel, and a re-chipped engine management system. Power was only up 10bhp on the standard car but there was a decent amount of extra torque and the car was significantly lighter. The suspension was lowered 1.5 inches and stiffer springs and dampers were fitted. Other tweaks included harder suspension bushes, 'Unibal' top strut mounts, and beefier engine and gearbox mounts. The Touring retained the standard car's clutch but uprated brakes from the Turbo were incorporated. Wheels were unique magnesium 17-inch rims with lower profile rubber. Both Lightweight and Touring models were fitted with power-steering. The RS Lightweight, however, took weight saving to another level, even reducing the level of rust proofing but, if this was a little too uncompromising for some tastes, the Tourings retained most of the usual Carrera equipment as well as the normal amounts of anti-rust and soundproofing. This 1992, 911(964) RS Touring was finished on 05/03/1992 and despatched to the distributing dealer JCT Brooklands where it remained until becoming the pride and joy of its first owner, John Smith of Warefield and was registered on 25/09/93. It was subsequently enjoyed by a further three owners before our vendor purchased it from Autofarm in late February 2002. According to its accompanying Porsche 'Certificate of Authenticity', the car was built in right-hand drive and was destined for the UK market. It was finished in Black (A1A1) with a Black interior and was specified with Sport leather seats featuring triple colour seat inlays, Top-tinted Windscreen, and a Sunroof. The car has been part of a family collection of immaculate Porsches and the comprehensive history file is indicative of the fastidious nature of our vendor. As well as the Porsche C of A, the file contains membership details of the 964 RS Register, the V5C, MOT Certificates going back to October 02 (the latest being issued on 22/04/2017 at 51,195 miles with no advisories), a number of old tax discs, lots of correspondence relating to changes of Registration Number (the current plate C2 RST is remaining with the car), a number of period road tests and magazine articles, and all the service and maintenance history whilst in our vendor's possession. The most recent invoice (RPM in Tring) details a major service at 51K miles with four new Michelin PS" N3s, a new battery, and an alignment and geometry check. Early in his ownership (46,466 miles), the car was entrusted to JZ in Kings Langley to "Carry out a de-cat system, Supply, and fit performance chip". The resulting dyno printout shows 278.8 bhp at the flywheel at 5909 rpm. There are rare cars, and then there is the right-hand drive, 964 RS Touring. Only 11 are recorded as having been built, with six of these destined for the UK, making this immaculate all-black example really special and it's no wonder that they are actively sought after by serious Porsche collectors all over the world.

1955 Porsche Chamonix 550 Spyder

1955 Porsche Chamonix 550 Spyder

Lot # 219 (Sale Order: 19 of 59)

Porsche's first attempt at building a race car was the 550 Spyder. It was powered by their Carrera 1500cc quad-cam flat-four engine and it soon gained a reputation as a ''Giant Killer'' with just a modest 115bhp. In 1956, an evolution of the Spyder won the Targa Floria and the 550 was to record numerous successes worldwide over the next few years. During September 1955 one of the first ninety 550 Spyders (Vin 550-0055) would, sadly, be immortalised in history when James Dean, actor and budding racing driver, collided with Donald Turnupseed on his way to the Salinas Road Race. The trans-axle was removed from the wreck of the Spyder and is still owned in the USA, and the battered bodywork of ''Little Bastard'' toured the States as a macabre reminder to speeding motorists. Between venues, it went missing and has not been heard of since, however, somebody knows where it is. Offered here is Chamonix 550 Spyder built in 2009 by Special Editions Inc. (USA) from the base car manufactured in Sao Paulo in Brazil. It was initially supplied to F1 Assistant Race Director, Herbie Blash who's usually seen in the driver's weighing room after a Grand Prix. Special Editions Inc. has been responsible for producing other 550 Spyders for the likes of Jay Leno and designer Gordon Murray leaving no doubt about the quality and desirability of these well-crafted cars. The overall fit and finish of the bodywork is of an exceptionally high standard and the general condition is commensurate with only having covered 3,500 miles. The rear wings have been painstakingly detailed with red painted flashes with gold edging as a 'nod' to period race liveries and are painted on. The look continues with a GT mirror, Porsche badging, mesh headlight covers and leather engine-cover straps. The red leather interior features a 14'' Nardi wood rim wheel, aluminium control stalks, and a push-button starter. The weather equipment consists of full/half tonneau and side screens. The engine is 1915cc which gives vivid performance combined with the legendary nimble handling offered by the tubular chassis and coil-over suspension. It's registered as a 1955 Chamonix so its exempt from Road Fund Tax. With original 550 Spyders' at £5,000,000, this is a very good second best and in this condition, and at this guide, represents remarkable value.

2002 Porsche 911(996) GT2 Clubsport

2002 Porsche 911(996) GT2 Clubsport

Lot # 220 (Sale Order: 20 of 59)

Based on the 993 generation of the 911 Turbo, the Porsche GT2 debuted in 1993 and was intended as a customer 'GT' racer replacing the outgoing 964 Carrera RSR. These 993 GT2s had a dramatic profile with wide composite wings and arches and a distinctive rear wing with air scoops in the struts. At its introduction, it had a twin-turbo 3.6-litre engine putting out 430 bhp which was later uprated to 450 bhp. The name was taken from the international 'GT2' class in which it was designed to compete. Just 57 road-going cars were built, however, the 993 GT2 proved particularly successful in motor sport and is still regarded with some reverence. With the advent of the water-cooled 996 it was inevitable that a GT2 version would be on the cards fairly soon and in 2001, Weissach duly obliged. The new car was powered by the M96/70 3.6-litre, twin-turbocharged, flat six producing 462bhp at 5,700rpm and 620Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm fed through a six-speed gearbox driving the rear wheels only. Body modifications improved the car's dynamics and, although similar wide wings and arches were used along with a more aggressive nose and a larger rear wing, the whole effect was more subtle than the slightly 'tacked on' look of the 993 GT2. Power was not the only objective and the car's weight was reduced by 200 pounds from the basic 911 Turbo which, when combined with stiffer springs and other suspension modifications, resulted in superb handling. In period, this was the fastest road car Porsche had ever produced. Naturally, the expectation was that the GT2 would 'go racing' however this was never the factory's intention. The requirements of the bean counters to build the car in significantly higher volumes than its predecessor, and the fact that, at the time, the 3.6 litre, naturally aspirated Mezger engine was now the Porsche power plant with sporting pretensions, meant that the GT2 was always pointed at becoming a top of the range, intercontinental, 'supercar'. However, to appease those who had been hoping for a new 'turn-key' racer, the Clubsport was introduced. The Clubsport package offered fire-retardant cloth lined Recaros, six-point race harnesses, a bolt-in rear roll cage (front section supplied separately), fire extinguisher, and a battery cut-off switch. According to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this 996 GT2 was completed on 04/12/2001 and first registered on 01/01/2002. It was optioned with the Clubsport Package (M003), Red seat belts, Top-tinted windscreen and a CDR-22 CD/Radio. Finished in Arctic Silver (X1X1) with a Black Clubsport interior it was dispatched to the supplying dealer, AFN in Guildford. Having recently been part of a collection of significant Porsches, the car has obviously been lightly used by its last few owners as the accompanying MOT Certificates indicate that it has covered less than 10,000 miles in the last eight years. The most recent of these was issued on 22/04/2017 at 39,073 miles with no advisories. The Service Records are complete with 10 stamps in the book from Porsche up until 2008 and marque specialists thereafter, the most recent being on 15/07/2016 at 37,512 miles. The owner's file contains a large number of invoices going back to 2009. These invoices total just over £28,000 and suggest that not a single penny has been spared looking after the health of this rare car. Far too many to detail here (please feel free to enquire at the Documents Desk) but the latest indicates that the limited-slip differential was removed, stripped and cleaned before being rebuilt with a 'Motorsport' diff pack at a cost of £2,000. Also in the history file with the C of A, invoices, MOTs, V5Cs, and Service History are the Porsche GT2 Press Release and a couple of 'Total 911 ' magazines with contemporary reports. Only 66 996 GT2s were built for the UK market in 1992, and only 17 right-hand drive Clubsports were built during the whole of GT2 production (Series 1 and 2), so this is a very rare car. These cars have now achieved a 'cult' status with a growing following and one in this condition that has patently been well cared for would make a very astute purchase.

Based on the 993 generation of the 911 Turbo, the Porsche GT2 debuted in 1993 and was intended as a customer 'GT' racer replacing the outgoing 964 Carrera RSR. These 993 ...moreGT2s had a dramatic profile with wide composite wings and arches and a distinctive rear wing with air scoops in the struts. At its introduction, it had a twin-turbo 3.6-litre engine putting out 430 bhp which was later uprated to 450 bhp. The name was taken from the international 'GT2' class in which it was designed to compete. Just 57 road-going cars were built, however, the 993 GT2 proved particularly successful in motor sport and is still regarded with some reverence. With the advent of the water-cooled 996 it was inevitable that a GT2 version would be on the cards fairly soon and in 2001, Weissach duly obliged. The new car was powered by the M96/70 3.6-litre, twin-turbocharged, flat six producing 462bhp at 5,700rpm and 620Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm fed through a six-speed gearbox driving the rear wheels only. Body modifications improved the car's dynamics and, although similar wide wings and arches were used along with a more aggressive nose and a larger rear wing, the whole effect was more subtle than the slightly 'tacked on' look of the 993 GT2. Power was not the only objective and the car's weight was reduced by 200 pounds from the basic 911 Turbo which, when combined with stiffer springs and other suspension modifications, resulted in superb handling. In period, this was the fastest road car Porsche had ever produced. Naturally, the expectation was that the GT2 would 'go racing' however this was never the factory's intention. The requirements of the bean counters to build the car in significantly higher volumes than its predecessor, and the fact that, at the time, the 3.6 litre, naturally aspirated Mezger engine was now the Porsche power plant with sporting pretensions, meant that the GT2 was always pointed at becoming a top of the range, intercontinental, 'supercar'.

1988 Porsche 911 Supersport (SSE) 3.2 Carrera Targa - 20,000 miles

1988 Porsche 911 Supersport (SSE) 3.2 Carrera Targa - 20,000 miles

Lot # 221 (Sale Order: 21 of 59)

Possibly the ultimate version of the 3.2 Carrera was the 'Option M491-Turbo-look' or 'Supersport' as it later became known in the UK. Initially, Option M491 was only available on a Coupé; and had to be ordered through the "Special Wishes" program, but was later extended to include the Targa and Cabriolet in 1985, before becoming an official model available from dealers in 1986. From 1987 onwards these dramatic versions were officially known as SSE (Supersport Equipment), and the cars in this final three-year run up until 1989 were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 Getrag gearbox. 'M491' was not just a sop to the excesses of the 1980s, with flared arches evoking the appearance of some dramatic Porsche models from the past, but was a popular option offering the 'macho' good looks of the Turbo without the mechanical complexities. However, it was not cheap adding over £10,000 to the cost of a standard variant by the end of the model's life in 1989, possibly explaining the relatively small build numbers. The SSE spec also included a limited slip differential, the stiffer suspension and superior braking system from the 930 Turbo, a wrap-around deep chin-spoiler, the famous 'tea-tray' rear spoiler, and wider Fuchs alloy wheels. The rarity of Supersport models is undeniable, especially in right-hand drive, but official figures are hard to come by. A respected source quotes that just 651 C16 (UK-supplied) M491 cars (including all Coupé;s, Targas and Cabriolets) were manufactured between 1984 and 1989. The sparkling Porsche presented here has to be seen to be believed. It is a privilege to be able to offer for sale a car of this standard - it is simply one of the most well-preserved cars we have ever seen. It's an original C16, right-hand drive, 1988 Porsche 911 Sportsport (SSE) 3.2 Carrera Targa, which has remarkably accrued just 20,000 genuine and verifiable miles. It's believed to be one of just 33 C16 RHD Targas produced in 1988 and possibly the only one in Grand Prix White paintwork with a corresponding white leather interior, including the option of the desirable 'Sport' seats. This striking combination would appear to be all original (apart from the bonnet which has been professionally repainted), and the car's condition is commensurate with its very low mileage and meticulous upkeep over almost 30 years. The indicated mileage is supported by the fully stamped service book and an impressive history file including many MOT certificates and a wealth of invoices. The car has been enjoyed by three previous keepers and has not been offered for sale in almost 10 years. During his tenure, our fastidious vendor has kept and maintained the 911 to an exacting standard, entrusting it to his local Porsche Centre for regular servicing, with the technicians there regularly pointing out that they have never seen a better example! Indeed, the car is so good, it won a Porsche Club GB Concours d'Elegance event without even trying, merely being parked in the car-park. Our vendor attended the event as a spectator, returning to his car to find a trophy adorning it! He was accordingly invited back into the event where the car was universally revered. This car presents, both mechanically and cosmetically, in simply superb condition. It has never required any major work due to its regular servicing, low mileage, and garage storage. Rarely have these true classic 1980's 911s lived such a pampered life in the hands of so few owners – let alone a rare Supersport model. Small details like two sets of keys, factory and supplying dealer stickers still in place, a complete Porsche tool-roll (still in its bag!), jack and inflation kit, help support this dutiful ownership. This is simply a lovely and genuine example of one of the most sought-after models from a classic period in the history of the 911.

1990 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera 2 Coupé

1990 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera 2 Coupé

Lot # 222 (Sale Order: 22 of 59)

When the 964 was first brought to market, Porsche were 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. 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. The car presented here is a right-hand drive (C16), 1990 964 Carrera 2 fitted with a manual gearbox. This impressively genuine car is one of the best examples of a 964 we have seen. Looking resplendent in the rare colour of Velvet Red Metallic (81L), with a correspondingly bold interior, it's hard to believe this is a 27-year-old car, such is the level of preservation. It was supplied new through Glen Henderson-Porsche of Edinburgh on the 1st August 1990. The service history is comprehensive with regular entries from 'Douglas Cameron Porsche' of Perth and 'Glenvarigill Porsche' of Edinburgh up until 61,669 miles. It was then cared for by Porsche specialists 'Morrison Motors' of Glasgow up until 86,964 miles in 2013. The car has had just two previous owners and is accompanied by its original purchase invoice, a huge history file, its original tools, jack, compressor and original spare keys. Our Porsche-enthusiast vendor, who has a small collection of special cars, bought the car some years ago and has used it sparingly. After purchasing the best 964 Carrera 2 he could find from a well-respected independent retailer of classic cars, he spent approximately £9,000 on the car, building on its already superb condition to improve it yet further, belying its current mileage of 96,000 miles. The effect of this, plus its dutiful ownership history, means the car drives and presents like one that has covered half this mileage. We really like this Velvet Red Porsche and welcome any inspection.

1987 Porsche 924 S

1987 Porsche 924 S

Lot # 223 (Sale Order: 23 of 59)

The 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. This UK 924 S was supplied new in February 1987 by Follett Porsche in London to Mr. Ashley Munir who purchased it as a gift for his daughter. From new, it was fitted with power steering, a sunroof, electric windows, an alarm, and a Hamilton Palmer music system, all factory fitted. The car was her pride and joy and she used it very sparingly, covering just 6,600 miles during her 27-year tenure. It has been maintained and serviced by main Porsche dealers on four separate occasions from new, including all the fluids being changed, and is supplied with its original book pack and service history. It has to be seen to be believed as the condition is truly exceptional and is offered directly from its second private owner, an established collector and highly valued client of Silverstone Auctions. An amazing and extremely rare opportunity to buy a totally original and highly usable classic Porsche that is, pretty much, unchanged since new.

1985 Porsche 911(930) Turbo SE

1985 Porsche 911(930) Turbo SE

Lot # 224 (Sale Order: 24 of 59)

From 1978 onwards, Porsche revised the 930 Turbo with a larger 3.3-litre, turbocharged and inter-cooled engine that produced 300bhp. They also added the famous "tea tray" and from the mid 1980's onwards offered firstly an SE specification and more latterly an LE specification, both of which featured vented rear wheel arches to cool the rear discs, sill extensions (the same as the 'flat-nose option), along with a special interior soft leather trim, and polished wheel rims. In 1985, Glenn Tipton - the lead guitarist and songwriter of the legendary heavy metal band, Judas Priest, decided to order a new 911 Turbo for himself. Learning of the new SE derivative from his local dealer, Swinford Motors of Stourbridge, he ordered a car in the one-off colour of Chiffon White and arranged to collect the car from the factory whilst touring in Europe with Judas Priest. Not surprisingly, he was enormously excited by his ballistic new toy and the Turbo continued to impress as the months went by, so much, in fact, that he was inspired to write the platinum-selling album - 'Turbo' - and also launch the successful single 'Turbo Lover'. This car became his pride and joy and he has owned and maintained it with great care ever since, keeping the mileage down to just 14,100 today. We are privileged to offer this important car for sale for the very first time in its entire history. In preparation for the Sale, Glenn has sent the car to highly respected specialists, Two plus Two, for a complete service which also included fitting new injectors and a fresh MOT on 21st June 2017. Cars with this type of unique history, single ownership, and known provenance rarely come to market and this special Porsche is a real opportunity for the enthusiast and collector alike. If you are a fan of Judas Priest (and with 50 million album sales there are a few) and are in the market for an example of Porsche's legendary 911 Turbo, then the Silverstone Auctions Porsche Sale on October the 21st is where you need to be.

1996 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera 4 Cabriolet

1996 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera 4 Cabriolet

Lot # 225 (Sale Order: 25 of 59)

Often cited by enthusiasts as "the last real Porsche", the 993 straddles the bridge between pure high performance driving thrills, visceral dynamics, and appealing design-led solutions to emissions and safety requirements. No previous 911 variant had possessed such high-speed cornering ability and dynamic stability aided by the significantly wider track and all-alloy rear suspension. The six-speed manual gearbox not only surpassed the previous four and five-speed boxes in usability, but most commentators also found it to be a quicker reacting and a smoother gear change, enhancing the whole driving experience. This, UK-supplied, right-hand drive 993 Carrera 4 Cabriolet was registered with its first owner on 26th February 1996. Finished in Arena Red Metallic with a full Grey leather interior, this 4-wheel drive example is fitted with the torquier and more powerful Varioram engine with a 6-speed gearbox. The Arena Red colour coding is extended to the hood, which is in super condition and is fitted with a new rear window, along with the electric sport hard-shell backed seats. With just over 81,000 miles on the odometer, this smart Porsche presents fantastically well on the exterior and the cabin is free of any wear and tear. Porsche overmats, fitted from new, have ensured that the carpets have aged well and the dashboard and switchgear remain in good condition. It's supplied with a UK V5c, a comprehensive history file containing old invoices and previous MOTs, the original leather book pack with the original handbooks, and the service book showing 16 stamps from both main dealers and marque specialists. The 993 has become very topical over the last few years and a C4 Cabriolet in this smooth colour combination and in this condition represents an opportunity to own a modern-classic Porsche 911 that will become more sought after with each passing year.
