Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, United States

1964 Porsche 356C coupe SN 216929.  I purchased this 356 form the original owner in 1998 in Knoxville, TN.  She bought it new in San Antonio, TX and drove it back to LA where it spent most of its life.  She retired to TN and drove the car cross country.  When I purchased it, it went to Knoxville Porsche specialist, Air Cooled Classics.  It had a respray (original Light Ivory), engine / transmission rebuild, new Webber carbs, new interior & headliner, new carpet, new chrome wheels, Nardi steering wheel, and gone through thoroughly.  Most exterior chrome has been replaced.  Dash is in excellent untouched original condition down to the AM radio.  The only rust ever found on the car was under the battery tray which was repaired just after purchase.  Some window chrome has patina, and windshield and back glass rubber has some splitting.  Recent work included 8 volt battery conversion, and Webbers rebuilt.  Since I bought it in 1998 it has been garage kept.  Original owners manual, and original window sticker were still in glove box when I bought it.  They will be included in the sale and window sticker is framed.  This is a strong running, honest 356.  It can be enjoyed for many years as is or brought to perfection for very minimal investment.  This Porsche has been part of my family for many years, but is not getting used.  Time to let her go to another enthusiast. Car is currently located in NE Florida.  $5000.00 deposit due upon winning bid.  Buyer responsible for shipping.

Remembering Porsche's illustrious Le Mans history

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 19:15:00 EST

Not only does this weekend mark the running of the 82nd 24 Hours of Le Mans, it will also see the return of one of the race's most venerable brands to the top tiers of endurance racing. Porsche will campaign its first top-flight car since the 1998 911 GT1-98, the 919 Hybrid, at this weekend's race, in the hopes of knocking off its corporate rival, the dominant Audi team.
To understand just what a win for the 919 would mean, though, you need to look back on the intrinsic connection between the Circuit de la Sarthe and Porsche. It's a history that spans decades, dating back to the team's first win in 1970.
XCar has a great video on that history. At 25 minutes, it's a bit on the long side. Then again it is the Friday before Le Mans. Take a look below for the video.

Despite premium carmakers going downmarket, luxury auto sales stick at 10-11%

Thu, 16 Jan 2014 08:29:00 EST

According to research conducted by global information company IHS Automotive, the leporine birthing of new models by luxury manufacturers over the past six years hasn't increased their market share in the US. Even as car sales reached 15.6 million units, IHS says what's happened instead is that luxury buyers are merely moving from one brand to another, moving from larger luxury vehicles into hot segments like compact luxury crossovers or leaving the market at the same rate as other buyers enter.
Whether broken out by makes or by segment, market share has rollercoastered inside a narrow band from 10.5 to 11.5 percent since "at least" 2008. Closer investigation reveals the shifting boundaries in the aspirational pond, with brands like Mercedes-Benz and Audi gaining territory as Lexus and Lincoln lost it, and Saab and Hummer were buried, dead, under it. One neat note is that Tesla has gone from a share of zip to .12 percent.
The subcompact and compact crossover segments show growth, with those little high-riders jumping from .3 percent to 1.16 percent of overall industry sales. Their rise, though, is concomitant with the decline of four other segments: compact and midsize cars and fullsize cars and SUVs. We think the next few years that will tell if the small-car expansion can overcome the large-car retraction, with a phalanx of smaller offerings like the CLA only recently hitting the market and others like the GLA, Macan and Q1 doing so in the near future.

Race Recap: 2013 Petit Le Mans draws curtain on the ALMS [spoilers]

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 11:29:00 EST

The 16th Petit Le Mans Powered By Mazda, in the final year of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón, was run on Saturday. Even though many of this year's championships had already been decided, the last ALMS race ever would be a 10-hour, 1,000-mile slog around Road Atlanta to get names in the record books and decide a few series trophies.
Since some of you will only get around to your TIVOs (or Fox Sports coverage) today, you should stop reading now if you don't want to know who did what...
