News from 19.06.2014 - The 911Turbo celebrates

The 911Turbo celebrates its 40th birthday this year, and to celebrate that 911 and Porscheworld (July edition) have taken the new 991 turbo to the Salisbury Plain with myself and Mel Nichols, who was the scribe for the original road test that I did for Car Magazine back in December 1974. This was the car that projected (literally) Porsche into the Supercar league, and woke up the world to its astonishing performance. The Carrera RS 2.7 Touring was £6250 new in 1973 and the Carrera RS Lightweight only £5750, as it did not have the trim options of the Touring and after all was produced by the factory for competition customers. So in 1974 the new Carrera RS Lightweight 3.0 RS was £12,000 (double the previous year’s car) and they did not produce a Touring version. There were only 270 ‘73 lightweights so they are now priced in the stratosphere, but we must remember that the little 2.7 RS remained very competitive for a good 20 years.

I have available a perfect matching numbers Tangerine (best colour) M471 lightweight, that has just had a nut and bolt reborn and correct in every detail. One of the first 100 made An Auction Sale recently at Ascot confirmed that air cooled Porsche 911 cars are still the most sought after investment/collector cars. Any early Porsche with an “S” badge is very sought after and in mant cases rarer than the Carrera RS 2.7. It also shows that the market is appreciating the air cooled short bonnet cars from 1974 onwards in their own right. All of a sudden the world has woken up to the fact that all good early 911s are very scarce and there are many more people wanting them than are available.

All top condition examples of these “federal bumper” models are also becoming very difficult to source and my top selection of these need to be considered before the market truly dries up for proper examples. 
I have 2 supreme examples, and two more original cars would be almost impossible to duplicate.
Newly available is an exceptional long bonnet RHD 911T coupe in stunning original bright yellow, with the wonderful 2.2 litre engine that just sings to you. All these lovely original examples are now so scarce that serious buyers need to come on board now. An original rustfree 1968 911 is also in stock, as is a truly beautiful 1968 911S Coupe in white.

Keep your eyes on my hand picked stock chosen from 45 years of experience of racing and selling Porsche.


News from 26.04.2014 - The Auction Sale.

The Auction Sale today at Ascot confirmed that air cooled Porsche 911 cars are still the most sought after investment/collector cars and it shows that the market is also appreciating the air cooled short bonnet cars in their own right.

These models are also becoming very difficult to source and my selection of these need to be considered before the market truly dries up for proper examples.
I have 2 supreme examples still for sale, and two more original cars would be almost impossible to duplicate.

There is still available an exceptional long bonnet RHD 911T coupe with the wonderful 2.2 litre engine that just sings to you and a now hard to find example of the last of the traditional shape 911, a manual 964 Carrera 2 still under £30k. All these lovely original examples are now so scarce that serious buyers need to come on board now.
Of course for the very serious buyer/investor I am offering a matching numbers factory supplied 1973 Carrera RS Lightweight M471 from the first 500 cars, POA.
