I drive the car most days too and from work only a couple miles both ways.
A/C has no charge, but its only 2 miles for me. Shifts, and stops, and runs.
I've only had the car 6 months. In which time, I chased down a heavily cracked vacuum line that had kept the car
from being driven. Once replaced, vacuum line from air box through firewall back under car over torsion leading to
brake booster(whew!), she was a joy to drive.
I wish the car could move with me, but its not meant to be.
It's the last of the narrow bodies. And as such has survived turbo tails and flares.
For all its faults, it's an honest car with loads of character.
Recent leak down test revealed number 4 cylinder to be at 52%, all others perfect.
The head studs were all torqued with no issues and valves adjusted accordingly.
Valve cover gaskets replaced and a set of new plugs installed.
I had the test done in the hopes of providing the new buyer with enough to make
an informed decision with regards to the all important heart of the car. With no
previous service record of a rebuild, the current mileage, and no chain tensioner upgrade,
here's the contradiction to all that has been written about this model year Porsche.
I don't think there's a panel on this car that does not have a dent.See pics.
The interior shows well for a car of this age. Seats are in great shape with deep bolster sides. Crack in the top of dash and floppy under dash a/c below glovebox. See pics.
Not much service history on the car. The exterior is self explanatory from the photos. The car was repainted years ago with an improper prep on a galvanized body and so it goes with the Texas heat that it is flaking, all over. Only 2 areas of rust through near the horseshoe at the front.
Car runs and drives.
I would plan on towing car to its destination. Shipping arrangements to be at the expense of the buyer.
Clear Texas title.
An out of state move forces sale, time is of the essence.
Cash payment in full and pickup of vehicle within 7 days of auctions end.
Sold as is.

Children require a ton of sacrifices; even people without kids know that. Whether it's the time to watch a baseball game or the money just to get there, parents have to give up something for the betterment of their offspring. Of course, once a child grows up, it's finally possible to repay mom and dad for all of their hard work. In the case of Kristin Russell and her stepdad, Dave, that involves a surprise 1973 Porsche 914.

Before he got married, Dave had a sweet, white 914. He even had the money saved up to restore it, but spent the cash on the wedding instead. The Porsche languished in the garage until Dave eventually parted it out and sold it off. Years later, Russell wanted to do something to thank her stepdad for all of the things he had done for her and her mom. The only fitting thank you was an identical 914 to the one that he gave up. Scroll down to watch Dave's reaction of getting his dream car as a surprise Father's Day gift.
Vmax200 in in England organizes events where those who care to show up with a supercar can run them down the two-mile runway at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground. Evo attended the latest event, bringing an impressively green Lamborghini Aventador to test its girth and gaping vents against other precious metals like the McLaren P1 and F1, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Enzo, a Porsche Carrera GT and enough 911 Turbos to start a dealership. Speaking of those Porsches, nine of the top ten slots in the top speed competition are claimed by modified 911 Turbos.

A monochrome Swede ruled them all, though, a black-and-white Koenigsegg CCX setting fire to the speed trap run after run, hitting 211 miles per hour at its quickest. It was followed by, surprise, a 911 GT2 modified by 9E that did 210 mph. You can watch the EVO video below, GT Spirit has a bigger breakdown of the day, and we've included another vid showing the tandem launch of the CCX and McLaren F1.
Porsche has just debuted its two latest decapitated rocket sleds today at the LA Auto Show, the new 911 Turbo Cabriolet and Turbo S Cabriolet, which share their coupe counterparts' 520-horsepower and 560-hp 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engines. That kind of power ought separate a lot of hats (and toupees!) from heads.
The rear-engined Porsches put their power down through all four wheels, which allows them to launch from 0-60 in 3.3 seconds or less (the Turbo S Cab takes just 3.1 seconds), and both of them top out at 195 mph.
The 911 Turbo Cabriolet starts at $160,700, while the Turbo S Cabriolet can be had for a grand total of $193,900 (plus $950 for destination). Is the S model's 40 extra horsepower worth $33,200? We're not so sure, but we imagine Porsche won't have any trouble selling it.
