Here’s the latest findings that tempt me to go out and find some cash to buy.
“Get Your Sweetheart a Porsche This Year!” At least the ad title was catchy. I’d love to find a 928S or 928S4 to buy some day. This one is tempting because even with the crapola pictures, it still looks promising. What doesn’t look promising is 32749 miles on the odometer (something’s wrong there) and the pimp daddy wheels someone decided to put on the car. Here’s what the ad had to say:
Shiny Black 1986 Porsche 928 – Super Condition – First reasonable offer drives her home!
Tempting Porsche #2
This one may be one of my “ultimate” dream Porsches. Kind of an old meets newer type of thing. I love the 944s, primarily because those were popular when I was growing up. The 968 benefited from a bit more thump from the engine, an updated interior, and styling that brought in some of the 911 characteristics while maintaining the 944 feel. This car isn’t a screaming deal, especially with 175k miles on the clock, but could be cool if it was well maintained.
Great Looking and Well Maintained Porsche 968
Recently replaced parts include: radiator, waterpump, thermostat, timing and balance belts, flyweel, clutch, battery, front suspension parts including struts, wheel bearings, tie rod ends, caster blocks, etc. Last year the car was hit (not too hard) in the driver’s side fender, which was replaced. I took the opprtunity to have the entire front end block sanded and re-sprayed to remove rock chips that had accumulated over the years.
All maintence records and receipts available. Car has approx. 175k miles and a recent leakdown test by Sunset Porsche gave results that were “better then great” without even accounting for miles (5% variance across all four cylinders, and very small leakage = rings and valves still tight). Interior is clean and in good condition. AM/FM Cassette with 6 disc CD Changer.
Not too shabby. Price is $11,500.
