Offered for sale is an absolutely gorgeous, exceptionally original, award-winning, matching-numbers 1962 Porsche 356 B Super cabriolet in striking factory correct Smyrna Green over Brown leather seats. The 1600 Super was created as a high- performance option to the regular 1600, offering 15 more horsepower with larger valves, increased compression, and improved performance. Featuring the more sought-after T6 body style with twin-engine grilles on the deck lid, and an outside (rather than in the trunk) fuel filler, this best-of-the-breed 356 B 1600 Super is highly desirable. A well-loved example, the car presents wonderfully and has an extensively documented provenance.

 

On December 2, 1961, Richard Steppler walked into the Volkswagen—Porsche dealership owned by Dr. Guy Beretich in Pordenone, Italy, and bought himself an early Christmas present – this magnificent 356 B Porsche. Eventually Mr. Steppler passed the car to his nephew, Richard Kubacki, and it is known that the car stayed in Europe (primarily Munich, Germany, and Monte Carlo) until 1968, when it was shipped to Chicago. At some point the car was repainted silver and in 1988 it was purchased by its most recent owner (of 25 years) in Milwaukee with 79,000 miles on the clock.

 

Under his stewardship the car was systematically stripped and returned to its original color – the stunning Glasurit Syrmna Green you see it dressed in today, complete with wheels of the same color. The brakes were overhauled, the engine was gone through, and the top half of the motor was rebuilt with new heads so that the car could run on unleaded gas in the United States. Despite these vital improvements, the car’s originality was respectfully maintained and the car still has its original radio, luggage rack, date-stamped wheels, six-volt electrical system, and exceedingly rare and valuable complete tool kit with Porsche-inscribed wrenches. In addition, much of the interior of the car is as it was the day it left the factory with the same steering wheel, gently worn brown leather seats, headlights, dash panel knobs, and clock. The soft top has been freshly replaced with the correct German Happich material and the carpets have been correctly redone. The car’s undercarriage and battery box are immaculate and completely free of rust and the car is an absolute joy to drive.

 

Its unusual preservation and exquisite aesthetics made it a perennial favorite at car shows, allowing it to claim many first, second, and third place trophies, plus over 30 other award plaques, many of which came from Porsche Club of America events. The car also made appearances in An Eye for an Eye, a movie set in Chicago in 1991, as well as an advertisement for Cellular One.

 

This fully documented matching-numbers car comes with the rare, signed, early Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and the original sales receipt showing the purchase price from the dealership in Italy, with the Italian tax stamps dated 1961. Also included in the sale are boxes upon boxes of Porsche-stamped spare parts, the original boot cover (plus a traveling boot), Porsche car cover, trophies and awards, original Porsche sales brochures and the original owner’s manual.

 

The rare and original color combination, strong-running Super engine, popular T6 body, and legendary reliability make this exceptional, fully documented 356 B the perfect Porsche enthusiast’s choice, deserving of serious consideration from anyone in the market for an exceptional 356.

 

We want this car to go to great home and would be happy to further discuss it and answer any questions, so please feel free to email us or call us at 805-202-4557. You can also visit us online at GoodmanReed.

We’ve always had an appreciation for classic European cars and over the years have created an eclectic personal collection. We only buy cars that we’d personally be interested in owning and generally only sell them to make room for other acquisitions. Sadly, that time has come for this Porsche (if the price is right, of course - this isn't a fire sale). We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we’re selling, but we’re enthusiasts, not experts, and we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding, as the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.

For U.S. buyers a 10% non-refundable deposit is required within 3 days of the auction’s end, the balance to be paid within 7 days of the auction’s end. Foreign buyers must pay in full within 7 business days of the auction’s end. Buyer is responsible for shipping, however we’d be more that happy to help with recommendations and arrangements. The car is listed locally and we reserve the right to end the auction at any time should it sell prior to auction’s end. Thanks for your interest.

Seinfeld takes Seth Meyers out in the perfect Porsche

Sat, 13 Jul 2013 19:17:00 EST

The latest episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee features Seth Meyers of Saturday Night Live fame riding shotgun in what is a very special Porsche from host Jerry Seinfeld's collection: a 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Seinfeld chose the "no-nonsense" sports car because he thought it fit his guest's personality (Meyers thinks motorcycles "are like the cigarette of transportation"), but we enjoy the chance to see one of these rare, über-valuable Porsches being driven on city streets - and in the rain, no less! What we don't like seeing is the Carrera RS being parallel parked behind a pick-up truck, though, fortunately, it seems that Seinfeld was able to avoid any front-end damage to the comparatively fragile Porsche.
Once at the coffee shop, the two comedians have a candid conversation about Meyers' time with SNL, from his early days on the show when he didn't think he was good enough to be a cast member to some of the high points in his career, such as SNL's "Really!?" segment that he performed in and how he became a writer for the show.
After coffee, when they're back in the car and Seinfeld opens up the throttle of the lightweight RS 2.7, he manages to eke out a big grin from Meyers - or maybe it was a grimace at the thought of driving in the rain on old tires. Whatever the case, be sure to watch the video below (and stay tuned until the end for a surprise).

Porsche Macan to debut at LA Auto Show

Wed, 29 May 2013 18:42:00 EST

Auto Express reports Porsche will unveil the upcoming Macan SUV at this year's LA Auto Show. Citing an unnamed "insider," AE says that the five-door will bow with engines, suspension and interior architecture that will help differentiate it from its Audi Q5 chassis mate. Big shocker there. We've been hearing the same line since we first caught word of the Macan back when it was still rolling around under the Cajun name. The report does shed some light on the model's pricing, however. That same insider says the Porsche Macan will carry a price tag of 36,000 pounds.
What does that mean for American buyers? Do some quick math based on current conversion rates, and average UK and US prices, and we come up with a sticker of roughly $42,000 here in the land of the free. That fits in line with the rest of the company's stable, with the larger Cayenne starting at $49,600.
Still, we'll wait for more concrete word before jumping behind the AE report wholeheartedly. The 2013 LA Auto Show gets going in late November.

Le Mans-winning Porsche 935 K3 'seized' by DEA agents

Thu, 16 Jan 2014 09:01:00 EST

Porsche has won Le Mans more than any other marque, but only one of those overall race winners was actually based on a 911. That was the 1979 Porsche 935 K3, chassis number 009 00015 that was entered by brothers Don and Bill Whittington. It went on to win at the Nürburgring and Watkins Glen, and scored podium finishes at Sebring and Brands Hatch as well. In short, it's a historically significant and hugely valuable piece of motorsport history. And it was just seized by the DEA. Sorta.
After the Whittington brothers ran afoul of a handful of lawsuits and were implicated in smuggling narcotics, the car changed hands a few times before ending up in the noted collection of one Bruce Meyers. He had it at Laguna Seca earlier this month when a black Suburban, Dodge Charger and transporter truck pulled up with government plates, asked to speak with Meyer, presented him with a court order, loaded the car onto the truck and drove off.
Though familiar with the legal disputes surrounding the ownership of the car and the misdeeds of its famous original owners, Meyer was left understandably distraught over the events that had just unfolded in front of him to separate him from his pride and joy. (Or one of them, anyway; Bruce has got an eminently desirable collection of classic cars.) But here's the kicker: those DEA agents weren't actual DEA agents. Fortunately they weren't thieves, either. The actual story could have been the plot right out of Ocean's 14 if they ever made one and it focused on classic cars. (Is anyone in Hollywood listening?)
