2008 Porsche 911 Turbo

 

Fresh Find: Nov. 8th, 2018 - Unadulterated Porsche Performance at an impossible to match value. Opportunity knocks, but are you ready to answer the door!

Rare package at this price... A dry climate car, pristine history with a unblemished CarFax, Documented Porsche Dealer Service throughout it's life and a virtual one owner car as 95% of the recorded mileage was accumulated by the original California owner of this car.

2008 Porsche Turbo Cabriolet - 480hp Twin Turbo H6 with Tiptronic S transmission and AWD. Fully Optioned with Sport Seats, Sport Chrono, Navigation and so much more.

Stunning in Black Metallic on Full Black Leather factory detailed with Yellow Brake Calipers and Yellow Seat Belts to Match.

The car has 85k original miles from new yet it presents as far less with minimal evidence of it's time on the road. 38 Recorded Service Visits over it's life time so clearly this one has not been ignored. Yes the mileage is higher than many in the marketplace, but the care and consideration that was clearly given this car speaks volumes about the value opportunity presented here.

Perfect find for the weekend enthusiast that will over time add minimal mileage - a car that can most likely be purchased on the cheap and used sparingly without massive future depreciation or maintenance costs.

2005 Honda S2000

 

Fresh Find: Nov. 7th, 2018 - Rare find in today's market... One Owner, Serviced Right from New!

2005 Honda S2000 - Series 2 - with the 240hp 2.2L VTEC, 6 Speed Manual & Limited Slip Differential

Series 2 cars are arguably improved over the Series 1 cars - slightly less frenetic and more pleasant to drive overall, but still a purely visceral sports car the likes of which is simply not available from any other manufacturer. Not for everyone, but for the enthusiasts that want fast and furious on a budget the S2000 is near impossible to match.

Importantly with these incredibly reliable cars it is important to find one that has been respected, not abused, as so many of these found there way into the hands of kids determined to extract every ounce of performance and beat them down.

This is a southern U.S. sourced, one owner car from new with a documented dealer service history throughout it's life. Yes more miles than some at 119k miles, but looking at the current condition and service history of this find you'll know it was loved and cared for carefully by it's one and only owner!

Fabulous fun at a value priced $13,000. USD

2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 4

 

Fresh Find: Nov. 6th, 2018 - Possibly one of the finest 911s in the marketplace today at this price point.

Yes I know for some of you the 996 era 911s are simply not on your radar, but trust us this model is making a comeback and given the still low valuations of these cars currently we think the 996 has room to move up market in the years to come.

Where else in the 911 world can you find a mint, virtually all original 33k mile car priced as this one at $30,996. USD

2000 Porsche Carrera '4' - 295hp H6, 6 Speed Manual & AWD.

Fresh Find: Nov. 2nd, 2018 - Some of the best Classic Porsche Professionals in the business have had there hands in creating this very special 911.

Porsche 911 RS/ST Backdate powered by a 3.2L Carrera Engine - a legitimate 77k mile on the car since new!

The build was based off of a 1977 Porsche 911S that was originally sold to a resident of San Diego California who drove the car for about 7 years before deciding he want to make into something nicer. He turned the car over to the Porsche Wizards at Andial who installed a set of Factory Steel RS Flares and sourced a brand new Porsche Factory 86 Carrera 3.2 for the car.

The car remained with the same California family for 30 years before being sold in 2007 at 62k miles to another California resident. After 7 years and a few thousand miles of enjoyment the car was resold to it's third owner who decided to invest heavily in a sport oriented makeover. Shortly after the work was completed the car found it's fourth owner who finished of the finer details of the RS/ST build and had a top end rebuild of the engine completed by a local Cali Pro Shop.

At 2400 lbs with 220hp on tap from the 3.2L this car as you would suspect is an absolute joy to drive. It looks simply amazing with all of the right details done right and it has now only been driven a few thousand miles since the final engine work was completed.

Can you build one that replicates this for less... not in today's market - and as priced at $79,900. USD we would consider this a gift for the right buyer.

Fresh Find: Nov. 1st, 2018 - Looking for an Air Cooled Classic? This one ticks most all of the boxes for me!

1970 Porsche 911T - Targa in remarkable overall condition given the price point of this lovely find.

Stunning in correct Signal Yellow on Black Interior. Reportedly a zero rust car with fresh correct interior.

Non-Numbers Matching car, but you won't mind because a era correct 2.2L 140hp 911E Engine with Weber Carb setup is installed and provides a nice performance boost over the original Base T engine.

'S' Trim Package and 5 Speed Manual, 'S' 6x15 Fuchs. Fresh brakes and Clutch. Simply a great running, nice looking quality driver that is ready for it's next lover.

1973 Porsche 914 2.0

 

Fresh Find: Oct. 31st, 2018 - Air Cooled Porsche with a Twist!

I have always had a soft spot for the 914 and in fact had the opportunity to own and semi restore one back in the 70's. Love that car and the fond memories of those days on the road are with me even today.

Now we all know that the 914s are well aged given that the last one left the factory some 40+ years ago. Finding a worthy candidate to buy and restore is getting harder by the year and values for the good ones have been increasing for some time now.

Save yourself the hassle and unknown expense and buy this professionally restored piece instead.

Rare find as this 1973 Porsche 914 2.0 car has been the subject of a massive, cost no object restoration which has returned this already solid 914 into a showroom quality piece of automotive history.

Well over $50,000. USD has been spent by the past owner to build this find and you the next owner gets to benefit from the past owners open cheque book.

Nothing was left undone and no money was held back, looks drives and performs like a new 914 2.0

$33,500 USD may seem like a lot for a 914, but for this car it is pure value!

Fresh Find: Oct. 31st, 2018 - California Crazy... Resto Mod - 1969 SS Camaro packing an era correct 427/454 Big Block & Muncie 4 Speed Manual.

Kind of a full on dream car for a lad from the muscle car era, and it looks like it has been done right from top to bottom.

Daytona Yellow with Black Stripes.. No not a Yenko, but in reality very similar to what Yenko was building back in the day, the difference being that this is priced at about 25% of what the Yenko 427 cars are going for in today's market.

Build is based on rust free, dry climate base 69 Camaro - one of the first 69s built in Norwood California with all of the right options added to complete this impressive build.

Engine is a 427/454 from 69/70 with 4 Bolt Mains and Forged Crank.

Reportedly frame off restored with all new sub frame bushing, ball joints etc. Upgraded Tubular Control Arms for improved stance and handling. Disc Brake & Power Steering. Fresh Chrome and Rubber too! RS Hideaway Headlights with Detroit Speed Electric Motor setup.

Fresh Deluxe, Comfort Weave Interior, New Headliner, Factory Tach in Dash with Centre Console with gauge cluster.

Performs as would be expected of a 427/Manual Camaro and it looks and sounds great going down the road. Massively potent, but very drivable as it has not been over modified.

Try and find a match on the market for just $48,900. USD

Fresh Find: Oct. 26th, 2018 - A fast appreciating Classic Air Cooled Porsche!

If you have always wanted a nice 914, here is your chance to grab a great, dry climate example that looks and drives just like it did way back in the 70s.

Stunning 1974 Porsche 914 - 2.0 - Blue Plate California original with just two owners from new!

Engine was reportedly rebuilt 10k miles ago back in 1999 by Competition Engineering - runs fabulous with it's stock original Fuel Injection System. 

There remain lots of 914s out there, but very few approach the originality and over all condition of this at this price point. Hard to match at $15,900. USD

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/cto/d/74-porscheliter-fuel-injected/6727775570.html

Fresh Find: Oct. 26th, 2018 - Rarely seen, yet so nice in these throw back colours!

1988 Porsche Carrera Coupe - 3.2L with the in demand G50 Transmission. Gorgeous in Cassis Red Metallic on Burgundy Leather.

This is reportedly an all original car from new with the exception of the radio, original paint, original numbers matching drive train etc. No silly mods, no crappy paintwork.

Clearly a wonderfully respected example that looks fresher than many at half this mileage of 110 miles since new. Texas/California owned so a dry climate life. Just as nice mechanically as it is cosmetically.

Very Nice at $49,900. USD - not like many you'll find, and yes you can get one cheaper, but it won't be this grade of car!

Fresh Find: Oct. 26th, 2018 - If you are an Air Cooled focused Porsche buyer then this 964 Cabriolet should tick some boxes... yes a coupe may be what you really wanted but this value priced Cab should not be left ignored as it offer some much of what the coupe version does at pennies on the dollar!

1993 Porsche Carrera '2' (RWD) Cabriolet - very low 49k original miles from new. Desirable Guards Red on Black Leather. Late model year 964s are always the preferred find - potent 3.6L air cooled H6 with 5 Speed Manual.

The car looks quite original throughout with not much evidence of wear or tear anywhere you look.

Hard to match opportunity as we are finding that these 964 Cabs are starting to increase in value in lockstep with the Coupes.

Offered privately at $34,000. USD

Fresh Find: Sep 7th, 2018 - A bargain buy if there ever was one! No this is no backyard built Kit Car as this is a true factory built piece, manufactured by a USA based, DOT approved auto manufacturer. So all said try as you might you are not going to find another factory built Cobra at anything approaching this price.

1995 Cobra 427 - hand built by Excalibur Motorcars, which from the mid 60's well into the late 90's was North America's 4th largest vehicle manufacturer, behind the Big Three. Of course Excalibur is best known for their massive SSKs and Phantom cars, but in the 90s after being rescued (once again) by a German Investment Group, Excalibur changed directions and developed their own version of the Cobra 427. This unique model was designed in house to be slightly wider, longer and lower than the AC/Shelby originals, to correct many of the limitations found in the AC cars, that being a very cramped cabin with offset pedals and minimal, driver side, leg room. You are actually going to fit in this Cobra! Just under 200 of these unique Cobra cars were built before production came to an end.

The Excalibur Cobra was sold as a Gentleman's Cobra and it came loaded with all of the features expected of cars build in it's day including AC, and a plush cabin covered in leather. Being a Factory car, built by a DOT manufacturer, who by the way was empowered to issue their own 17 digit VINs, each car had to meet the U.S. vehicle standards of the era including lighting, braking and emission controls. Of course over the years, this example, like many of the less than 200 built were modified and enhanced to improve on the performance capabilities as the original stock specification left a little to be desired.

How things have changed as this car is now powered by a Ford 302 modified with a Stage 2 TRICK FLOW engine kit producing 360 hp. Highlights of the Trick Flow kit include aluminum heads, unique camshaft, headers, roller rockers, 32 lb. injectors, chip and a custom programmed ECU. With a curb weight of only 2500 pounds this snake accelerates very aggressively (to say the least) with a truly dynamic exhaust sound. The engine is coupled to a 5 speed manual transmission, a heavy-duty Ford 9 rear axle, and ceramic-coated side pipes.

The Cobra comes with a Black Removable Hardtop with Storage Stand, side curtains and a Tonneau Cover along with an AM/FM Radio.

The car is pristine through, looks, runs, and drives like the beast it is, and the build quality far exceeds the homebuilt Kit Cobras that litter the marketplace.

Simply stunning in Silver Metallic with Black Racing Stripes and Black Leather Interior.

Because this is a legitimate factory car with a correct VIN, unlike the U.S registered Kit Cars, this one is actually importable into Canada, but of course an American buyer can also jump on this as well.

Priced at just $39,900. USD and only for sale due to the owner/collector's illness.

Jorge's Dilemma ...

Here we are deep into the Summer of 2018 and our very good client Jorge S. has a hot little dilemma on his hands. The question is... Can You Help Him Out?

Jorge is a pure, unadulterated, enthusiast and when he first came to us, many years ago, he was a dyed in wool, Nissan ZX guy, but something happened along the road and lo and behold the Porsche bug infected him. In fact Jorge has the bug so bad that through the years Jorge has accumulated three prime examples for his burgeoning, private collection. First came the stunning, 2001 Porsche 996 Turbo in Black on Tan, seen to the right, next came a truly, fine 1985 Carrera Coupe which was followed last year by a quite, rare and very near, mint 996 Porsche Turbo X50 Coupe in Silver, seen below.

Jorge clearly 'Loves What He Drives' and each and every one of his prized Porsches gets regularly exercised and receives the kind of care and attention that I wished all Porsches received. Jorge is an enthusiast's, enthusiast, he treats his toys with respect and an open wallet, and as a result all of his cars are fabulous examples of the breed.

Now onto the dilemma... you see Jorge once again has become smitten by a new love, and he has gone out a bought a brand new, yet to be, delivered 911T, hence now to make room, one of his two 996 Turbo's simply has to go.

So if you're a Porschephile interested in helping Jorge out with this little problem, Jorge would love to have a chance to have a chat. Whether you are looking to add to your collection or simply to get your hands on one of Porsche's best 'the 996 Turbo' you should think hard, my friends, as this is probably an opportunity that, if ignored, you're likely to regret for some time to come!

Please note that this is not a fire sale and Jorge has no intentions of given his Porsches away. That said from our perspective this is a unique set of circumstances that may open the door for you to get in on owning a very desirable Porsche Turbo at a realistic price point.

The big story and the real value on this one is not just the look a- s it is all wrapped up in the mechanical aspects of the build. Mechanically this car has been gone through from end to end and the build was completed by one of the best in the business!

Fresh Find: Sep 5th, 2018 - Okay car fans we have recently made the decision to head off into the Far East and expand our horizons into the Japanese Auto Market. This is one very unique marketplace that is simply stock full of interesting, well preserved, enthusiast focused, automobiles and we think it is only right that we open the door to offering some of these fabulous finds to our clients and dedicated site watchers.

Luckily for we Canadian buyers... the reality is that virtually any vehicle 15 years of age or older is admissible for importation into our country. This is not the case for many other enthusiasts around the world, including those in the USA where minimum vehicle age for foreign sourced cars is 25 years of age.

For now our forays into the Japanese market will be limited to European Manufactured vehicles with Left Hand Drive not the less desirable (in our local market), far more common, Right Hand Drive models which of course is the norm for the Japanese market. 

First up is a model that was never made available in the Canadian market as Alfa Romeo left the NA Market back in the early 90's before reappearing in recent years with the much heralded 4C and Giulia models. 

1997 Alfa Romeo GTV Coupe which was beautifully designed by Enrico Fumia of Pininfarina and which in this highly spec'd example comes with the lusted after, Busso engine - a 3.0L 4 Cam/24 Valve that provides both fabulous performance and a sound profile that will thrill you each and every time you drive this thing. The engine itself is a piece of automotive art as seen in the image below.

This example has just 58k original kilometers on it and appears to be virtually near mint throughout with near zero wear and tear. We can see some minor modifications from stock, but nothing silly or undesirable, modifications include the deeper front spoiler and side skirts off of the later year GTVs. 

One of the aspects of this particular vehicle is the fact that it is on offer from an Authorized Alfa Dealer not what we often see in the Japanese market.. and this speaks to the quality of this Alfa!

Simply stated there is nothing in the current Canadian market that matches all that this stunning Italian offers for a delivered to Vancouver dockside price of approximately $17,000. CAD

The Cars & Coffee crowd will be all over you when you arrive in this!

Fresh Find: Aug 15th, 2018 - Looking for that value buy Air Cooled... this may be a good starting spot.

1986 Porsche Carrera Coupe - Original 3.2L H6 Air Cooled Engine with 915 Transmission.

The car spent much of it's life in the dry southwest and it is rust free. Mostly original throughout with all original factory panels.. mods are just an Air Cleaner and Speedline Rims.

The car currently has 166k original miles with no evidence of past accidents or any major damage and a stamped service book up to 135k miles.

Looks like an opportunity for the right buyer at $32,900. USD

Fresh Find: Aug 15th, 2018 - Great looking Air Cooled - Porsche Targa... ready to be enjoyed without breaking the piggy bank.

Rare and handsome original colour combo Casablanca Beige Metallic on Brown Leather.

Reportedly just 74k miles but you can't trust the mileage given on these early SCs and we sense this has more mileage than being indicated by the odometer... but that said the car looks very presentable without after a little tidying of the interior.

Engine has been converted to Carbs and we see an aftermarket exhaust... all reportedly runs great.

Just installed fresh wheels and tires - wheels look to be larger than stock Fuchs likely aftermarket.

Any way you slice it it would appear to be a nice little air cooled 911, in today's market, at just $39,900.

Fresh Find: Aug 15th, 2018 - Great Driver Quality 928 with some promise for value appreciation with a little work.

1985 Porsche 928S - 32V 5.0L V8 with hard to source 5 Speed Manual Transmission.

A rust free, leak free southern find that remains in surprisingly nice condition but a car that could be so much nicer with a little TLC.

96k original miles, and within the last 5k miles it has had a full top end rebuild

with all new stainless valves, all new timing gear, water pump, oil pump - also has upgraded PK timing belt tensioners that utilizes modern Audi tensoniers. Replaced all engine seals and gaskets too!

Interior has a few minor flaws Cracked Dash (easily capped) and a small bit of trim needs a glue down, but the core of the interior those original leather seats and other trim remains in great shape overall. Paint is reportedly nice, but at a minimum a little clean and buff is called for on this one.

Reportedly Needs Tires, Strut Inserts and A/C currently inoperative - if you can turn your own wrenches you can finish the project and have a very presentable 32V/manual 928 at a below market price.

Offered privately at $7,900. USD

\1988 Pontiac Fiero GT

 

Fresh Find: Aug 13th, 2018 - End of Era Piece - Collection Grade Find, for the true Fiero Enthusiast.

1988 was the very last and very best year for the Pontiac Fiero as GM had refined the car over the years and saved the best improvements for the 1988 model year cars.

This is a 16,000 mile, one owner example in virtually as new condition throughout - in fact the underside is just as pristine as the top side. So if you were a Fiero Fan back in the 80s and missed out on getting your hands on one of these, this is likely your best, and last chance to buy a near new one... optioned right, in the best colour combo at a sensible price.

I must say that the early Fieros showed so much promise, but were overall such a disappointment, yet the much improved 1988 Fiero GT with V6 and 5 Speed Manual along with the, late to the table, factory suspension and braking enhancements ticked a lot of boxes for me back in the day.

Love What You Drive and finally get what you want for just $16,900. USD

\1988 Mazda RX-7

 

Fresh Find: Aug 13th, 2018 - Try and find a nicer example than this rare find for less.

Yes I know the 80s RX7 were not terribly fast and furious, but that said they were and are pretty decent sports cars when rationally compared against cars of that era. I was fortunate to own one of the first RX7s in North American way back in 1989 and although it's little rotary only put out 100hp at the time it was fabulous fun.

Motortrend reviewed the new RX7 back in 1986 (little changed in this 88 version) and they were clearly impressed too!

1988 Mazda RX7 - GXL (top for the line for the non-turbo rotary) - just 47k original miles and it looks near all original throughout. 147hp 13B Rotary with 5 Speed Manual Transmission.

Black on Grey Interior - the GLX had leather throughout and every option imaginable for a RX7 from this era.

Great looking with little to no evidence of wear or abuse... a rare find in an RX7!

Nice find at $10,995. USD

\1987 BMW 3 Series 325ic

 

Fresh Find: Aug 13th, 2018 - Simply a great BMW Cabriolet and a rare find in this condition some 31 years after leaving the factory in Bavaria.

Virtually an original Triple Black, E30 Cabriolet!

1987 BMW 325i Cabriolet - Powered by a sweet 170hp Inline Six with 5 Speed Manual.

Not a supercar by any means, and a bit more touring focused than pure sports car, but all in all a great Euro Tuned ride with a build quality that is hard to beat.

Certainly one of the nicest examples we have seen of late down at this fully depreciated price point.

This lived the southern life since new with just a few, clearly loving owners... look around this car as it is shocking fresh with little of the wear and tear you find on so many other examples from this era.

It won't last long once some other wise BMW enthusiast sets his eyes in it.

Value at $9,752.00 USD

Fresh Find: July 13, 2018 - An original, clean climate, west coast beauty that found it's way east a few years back.

1986 Porsche Carrera Coupe - 126k original miles - 3.2L air cooled H6 with 5 Speed 915 Transmission.

Impressive throughout in gleaming Guards Red on Black Leather - Books and records are with the car! None cracked dash and the car is corrosion free.

Private seller offering a great looking, strong running 911 Coupe at just $36,500. USD

Fresh Find: July 13, 2018 - So you missed out back in the mid 60s on buying the Mustang that you had drooled over as a teen... well here is your second kick at the can.

1965 Ford Mustang Coupe... Dry Climate California Car (Black Plate) that remains ALL ORIGINAL with 95k carefully preserved miles.

Now this is not quite a sports car just yet as it was factory delivered with a base 6 cylinder engine and automatic transmission, which is still installed... but think of the possibilities that this original Mustang presents!

Two Owner, Garage Kept piece that is solid throughout and ready to be driven.

Now of course there a a few different directions you could take with this one... leave it stock and original and simply drive and enjoy just as the factory built her, amp it up by dropping in that 289/302 4V V8 along with an upgrade the wheels and tires or use this as a great base for that full resto mod Mustang you have always dreamed of. 

The directional choice is yours, but no matter which direction you decide to take, with an ask of $14,500. USD the value found in this Original Mustang is near impossible to match.

Fresh Find: July 13, 2018 - Another Unique Special Order Porsche, but this one is a 996 Coupe.

I know you may think me crazy, but these First Year 996 cars are one of my personal favorites as the lines just work for me, where as the later facelift 996s aren't my thing.

1999 Porsche 911 Coupe - in hard to find Speed Yellow on Black Leather... factory optioned with Turbo Twist Rims, Seat in Full Leather with Crests, Supple Leather Package and Contrast Stitched in Yellow threat to match the exterior, along with Seat Belts in Yellow, with Trimmed Mats to match. Boy somebody really knew what they wanted and darn it all looks good. We sourced a 997 Coupe that matched this car's options, near to a tee, and it looked fabulous in the flesh!

Here we go again (sorry we seem stuck on Cali cars this week) another dry climate, California find. This one has just 57k original miles with Fresh Rotors & Pads, Recent Tires etc. Looks very well loved throughout!

Take a peek at the private seller's video (not the best video, but it shows the car well).

The ask is $22,000. USD - yes a little more than some early 996s, but this one looks worthy.

Fresh Find: July 12, 2018 - The previously unattainable may now just be within range!

A very rare find that ticks a lot of my boxes and we think worthy of some serious thought by anyone looking to possess the very best of Air Cooled Porsche cars.

TWO OWNER, DRY CLIMATE CALIFORNIA ORIGINAL - PORSCHE DEALER SERVICED

Shockingly pristine 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo... original and stock throughout, with none of the normally expected wear and tear you would see on others at the recorded 110k original miles. Clearly a car that has been garage kept, enjoyed often, but treated with the respect that such an exotic deserves. The mileage calculates out to just over 5k miles per year, so yes it was used, but no where near the daily driver range.

The car looks special and obviously the original owner spent large to get it just the way he wanted it, optioned to the max.

Fully dealer serviced from new with a $16k USD refresh including new Turbos 25k miles ago and a Major Service with Fresh Clutch and Tires just 1000 miles ago.

Original Paint... and it looks great in Arena Red Metallic!

Stunning, yet value priced example of a modern era collectable - yours today at $99,500. USD

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera

 

Fresh Find: July 6, 2018 - The recent passing of the past owner of this Porsche has brought the car to market and a nice find it is.

If you have been chasing an air cooled, Porsche Cab and have yet to find the right one, you'll want to look up and take notice of this find as there are simply not many 993s of this quality and this low mileage that are priced as this one is.

1995 Porsche Carrera Cabriolet - RWD 993 with just 61k original miles. 272hp H6 with 6 Speed Manual. Looks to be virtually original and very well preserved throughout. A well optioned piece with Sport Rims, HID Lights, Motor Sound Package etc. Clean CarFax

Very sharp in Midnight Blue Metallic on Beige Leather.

Try and find one nicer than this for $42,990. USD

Fresh Find: July 6, 2018 - One Family Owned - Dry Climate California Car from new!

This lovely 1985 BMW 635 CSi has been the family's pride and joy for the past 33 years, but now it is time to pass it onto the next caring enthusiast.

Impressively kept example with a large packet of documentation and service history through the years.

Stunning in Grey Metallic on Black Leather and a pristine as you are likely to find anywhere at this price point and most importantly it is a no corrosion, dry climate find which is far different than the BMWs of this era you'll find in the North East. 

Lots to love here at just $15,500. USD
