Tempting Porsches #26

Tempting Porsche #1

The first on the list today is a 1979 911SC. It’s got a light blue exterior and black interior. A tad over 96k miles on the odometer. Here’s a description from the ad:

Beautiful Lt. Blue over Black leather interior. CD player, Pager/Remote Alarm system, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, AC Blow Cold, Fans & Switches all Work Perfectly.

Good Rubber on Alloy Wheels, Starts without hesitation and runs great with good power, brakes feel firm and progressive and the steering in spot on. This is a true interpretation of what makes a 911 a 911…light feel in the drivers seat, great command and control of the road.

Asking Price: $14,990

I love the look of this car (just like that red one from earlier this week). It’s got all the classic lines of the 911 and would be a blast to own and drive. Everything looks to be in good shape from the pictures. It’s a gorgeous color too. There’s just a lot to love about this car.

Personally, I think it’s priced a little high for the market we’re in, especially given the time of year. I had great luck buying cars at the end of December last year, so this could turn out to be a great deal for someone walking in with cash.

Tempting Porsche #2

The second Tempting Porsche today is one that’s a bit different than what I usually choose. The biggest thing being it doesn’t have a picture, so it’s a bit of a crap shoot. It’s a 1975 911S in silver. Here’s what the ad has to say:

1975 911S Porsche – Silver
5 speed-has been stored
Pretty Original

Asking Price: $4,750

A stored car is never ideal, unless it was put away right. Even then, there’s just too many problems that can come up. If it hadn’t been stored for too long, it’s possible it could be a decent deal and, again, provides a lot of fun value for the money. Especially if you could talk the seller down a bit.

I still like the idea of an older Porsche and wouldn’t mind finding a car like this in decent condition that I could drive and enjoy, as well as tinker with a bit.


  1. the SC’s and Targa’s can be had at reasonable prices, definitely worth the $
