Tempting Porsches #33

Today I’ve got a trio of Tempting Porsches. Found all of these in about 10 minutes on Craigslist. Crazy how many great cars are up for sale there.

Tempting Porsche #1

porsche 911 turbo slantnose gray

This is my favorite of the bunch. It’s not an actual 911 Turbo, but a Turbo Look with some engine modifications. The car is a 1975 Porsche 911 Turbo Look Slantnose. Light gray with black interior. It’s got 57k miles on it, although I’m guessing that’s after a rebuild (or two). Here are some more details from the ad:

I love this car, and the only reason that I’m selling it is because I’m becoming a father, and this is not really a practical “daddy” car.

The car has 57,xxx miles with a CLEAR TITLE. A new $12,000 engine was installed and has only 7,000 miles on it to date. I have all the records for this. This car is NOT TURBO. It is a 2.7 with 6 carburetors, high performance installed by Porsche and some other parts.

Runs and drives great. Fuel lines and the clutch are new. Has a set of 2004 wheels with new Dunlop tires, in excellent condition with about 95% rubber.

Moon roof works perfectly and does NOT leak. Doors, locks and mirrors are fine, power windows work just fine. All lights work.

Asking Price: $19,000

I LOVE the look of this car. This is one I would drive and enjoy all day long, even if it’s not turbocharged.

Tempting Porsche #2

porsche 911 turbo black

Next up is a black, 1985 Porsche 911 Turbo. This one is an actual Turbo with 99k miles on the odometer. Great color and a great year. For classic Turbos, black and red are by far my favorite colors. Here is a description from the ad:

Wow! What an opportunity to own the real 1985 spec 930 Turbo. This car has all the pedigree and documentation that would make any Porsche enthusiast salivate. All records and upkeep with documentation of authenticity from Porsche Cars of North America. This is a “Real” car, not something that has been tracked or abused. Always garaged, never in the rain, and can run circles around anything in its way. Car has updated intercooler, clutch, and brand new Pirelli PZeros.

Asking Price: $26,950

Lulay’s (where the car is for sale) tends to get nice cars on their lot. Be a great car, especially if you could talk them down a few grand.

Tempting Porsche #3

Last one for today is, crazy enough, another Porsche 911 Turbo Look Slantnose. I swear I’ve only seen one or two other Turbo Look cars available in the Portland area the last couple of years, and maybe one other Slantnose. This one is a 1976 and claims to have a steel body conversion. Just 41k miles oner. White with black interior. From the ad:

I’m not in love with the white, but this could also be a car that looks better in person than in the pictures. Still, a Turbo Look Slantnose…someday…

    Something looks off on the white one, maybe it is the angel of the picture but the front bumper looks like it is pointing down and the fender and hood fit looks off. I would go with the silver one of the two.

  2. I had a Porche turbo, and it did burn oil to cool the turbo. I personally preferred synthetic; it hardly has any friction unlike standard oil, and it ran alot cooler. You don’t have to change it as often when you are using a high performance oil filter, but keep in mind that it does cost more, and it does burn some oil

  3. Are you still selling the 1975 Porsche 911 Turbo Look Slantnose? I am interested in trading, I have a Porsche as well. I would also like to make an offer if you’re up for it. Email me back when you can,
