  1. It's been a while since I did more than peek in here, but after selling my last 3.2 in the UK in 2010 and a detour via a 996 Cabriolet that gave its life protecting me (OK, a bit of pathos, I got run off the road by an arctic right into a nice concrete barrier - car ended up written off, but I escaped without a scratch) I thought I was done with 911s. My ownership experience with both my old C3.2 and the 996 had been anything but cheap - the words "money pits" came to mind - and I thought I'd get something sensible like a Honda instead. Well, like a first generation Honda (Acura) NSX. Then we moved across the country to the East Coast, a friend of ours showed us some pictures and told us a bit of a story. A friend of theirs had bought an aircooled 911 over a decade ago as he had always wanted one. He passed away last year and the widow was looking for a good home for the car - they had lots of happy memories in the car, but keeping it was a little much for her. So I went and looked at it, trying to find a polite reason not to buy it. Unfortunately as it became somewhat obvious quickly, I was the first person to look at the car who wasn't after a quick buck, and I knew what I was looking at. Well, at least I managed to make it look like I was. The only objection I could really field was that the asking price I thought I had heard being thrown around wouldn't make it work financially for me. Only that it was the "that's how much I'm asking from a flipper, you get the friends & family discount". So there went that plan and I had run out of reasons to say no. Which means that since yesterday, this thing has been parked in our garage - it's a 1989 Cabriolet with about 113k on the clock. The interior needs a bunch of help (typical California car interior damage), the roof needs a little upholstery work, it has an unexplained battery drain just like my last C3.2, needs a good service, spring plate bushings, a shifter rebuild and most likely intake gaskets. On the positive side, the body looks straight and rust free from what I can tell. And I did spend quite some time poking around the usual problematic areas. It has had a respray that's OK driver quality, but it needs some touching up and thanks some primer showing through on the passenger door, the passenger side probably needs more paint. Oh, and I already have a set of 16" Fuchs on the way.
  2. There are constant questions on what the IB market is doing and what is a fair price for different models. There is never a correct answer because a car is worth what someone is willing to pay and you'll always get some low and high priced cars distorting the picture. The easiest way to track the market is to build up a picture of asking prices over time. This doesn't mean they will sell for that but it helps give an indication. Hopefully this will be of use to anyone looking to buy/sell an IB. I'm going to suggest capturing: Year/Model/Colour/Mileage/Any major details e.g. engine rebuild/Prviate v Trade/Price and a link to the add (which will be useful when live). If people highlight new cars as they come on (we may get some duplication) then it'll be a great place for everyone to search and track IB's and their prices.

  3. I went to see the car today to deliver some parts for the ongoing work. My painter showed me the broken strap and bracket for the charcoal filter. They both need replacing so I got online and looked for prices.....£240!! Now I do get the concept of ‘Porsche tax’ but this is ridiculously expensive. I eventually found a used one that with a clean up will be fine on eBay for £45 which I purchased but why is such a simple non-complex part so expensive?
  4. Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone knows where one could find a 1975 RHD 3.0 Turbo? I am a very serious buyer who is looking in the 350-300k range (dependant on the condition etc). Just absolutely love this car head over heels and would be extremely grateful for any help with my search! Thank you for your help. Kind regards, Cameron
  5. looking for clutch pedal helper spring............must be for 930 part number; 930 423 00500 must be complete condition please
  6. Hi I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me if the following exhaust will fit my 911sc. It is a standard LHD with a 1 in 1 out exhaust. I have added some pics of the exhaust. https://www.tech9.ms/classic-parts/exhaust/dansk-92201oe-1620607400-rear-exhaust-box- http://catalogue.jpgroup.dk/pdf/PorscheDansk.pdf Its a bit confusing because the first link says yes it will fit but the second link says it's for 3.2's? (see pic below from second link) many thanks in advance jon
  7. I just reviewed 6 auction sites where recent Porsche sales & $'s were recorded. I saw a couple 76 & 77 3.0 Turbo Carrera units BUT not ​one​ Carrera 3.0. Are we hoarders ??? I am !!! ​ ​ ​
  8. A member of our North American C3 registry found what he tells me has a correct C3 VIN# (but) the 930/02 block shows '6400001' serial number. By my cross-reference the second digit, as a (4), denoted a 1976 911S - USA 2.7 liter engine at 165 HP. BUT the third digit should denote the model year. To many inconsistencies thru these marking numbers. Has anyone come across a similar S/N# ? Thanks; Mill
  9. Does anybody know this car, provide any insight on it? http://www.jazweb.co.uk/jaz-porsche-sales.php
  10. http://www.911virgin.com/porscheforsale/849/930TurboCoupe/ Mighty purdy low mileage turbo at 911 V - at £68 big ones - nice to see that the recent trends at SCOM aren't being copied by others - seems about right price wise considering the mileage and rather stunning photos
  11. Hi - definitely not leaving the IB fold but looking for a new daily. Flirting with a Cayenne but the Mrs has a Q5 so not a good mix. We're now down two of us and the dog so don't need to be as practical as we have so far (Saab Sportwagon). Any experiences, things to avoid, best models, best extras? I'm a cheapskate so was looking at pre march 2006 to save tax but the Mrs has other ideas and wants me to spend more so budget is flexible. Or is it just too much like my 911 so leave well alone? Cheers Roy
  12. Once you get over the price being asked (if you can) what do you all think of this 930? Has anyone had experience of dealing with them? Whilst there see also the nice silver Speedster and various other 'exotica' on offer: Porsche 930 for sale I'd love it, but reckon it might be £15k too much. Hywelrsvr
  13. IBs come and go, and most owners come and go with them. Some don't, as they like to stay here! Former IB owners have been bugging me for a forum to detail their other Porsche and non-Porsche classics. Go for it!
