  • One of the most recognisable and pretty sportscars of all-time, pen was first put to paper in 1947 with the design of 356 by Ferdinand Porsche during the second world war in 1947. This was shortly followed by the production of the first rolling chassis in Gmund Austria and took to the road in the following March with his son Ferry Porsche behind the wheel. With just 1121cc it was hardly a firecracker. However, this important car paved the way for the successful series of 356 coupe models that ...

  • THE MODEL The 997 is fast becoming the most popular of recent 911s, being better built than the 996 before, and yet offering a purer driving experience than the technically superior 991 that followed. The generation 2 models featured new direct injection engines and in the 3.8 litre S models, power was raised to 385BHP and 420 NM of torque. It has also proven to be considerably more reliable than the generation 1 variants and the new interior improved in quality too, with the controls still ...

  • The Carrera S models were launched for the 1996 model year and featured the powerful 285bhp air-cooled varioram engine, together with the wider body of the Turbo model. Their appearance was unique, however, as they retained the retractable rear spoiler of the Carrera which gives them their unique aggressive stance. They also have a build quality that has not been replicated in more modern variants since. The 993 C4S is considered by many to be the most desirable of the normally aspirated 993’s, ...

  • We are pleased to offer this PS Autoart 250 Retro Targa for sale that was originally created in 2006 as a tribute to the owners original 1973 911S Targa, that he and his new bride used on their honeymoon all those years ago. The base car was a 1990 964 Carrera 2 manual, chosen for its more modern technical features, that was then subsequently stripped and converted into the car you see here today. Viper green was the colour of the original 911S, so this car was repainted in the same hue, whilst ...

  • One truly obsessive private owner and only 12,240 miles from new. We are pleased to offer this truly immaculate one owner low mileage Cayman 981 manual for sale. We believe it would be fair to say that this car has been pampered since day one like no other. It has been used sparingly and carefully throughout, cleaned and polished regularly, before being tucked away in the garage. It has always been driven with gloves on and with seat covers, it has never had any luggage stowed in either luggage ...

  • The 993 was the last of the air-cooled era of the 911 and reputably the car that nearly broke the company because of the incredible quality engineered into every variant. The water-cooled models that followed were technically superior, and their commercial success ensured the bean counters at Porsche were smiling again, however, that magic honed from granite feel of the 993 would never feature in a 911 again. THIS EXAMPLE Originally supplied in August 1996 by Merlin Nottingham Pendragon Motor ...

  • The 3.2 Carrera was launched in October 1983 and although similar in appearance to the outgoing SC, had numerous technical improvements to improve driveability, refinement, and performance. Most notable was the new 3164cc engine that featured a digital Motronic 2 electronic (DME) management system and a new Bosch LE Jetronic fuel injection to raise power from 204BHP to 231BHP. This not only gave a 10% improvement in fuel economy, but the top speed increased from 146mph to 152mph too. Electric ...

Totally original rust and accident-free late SC was sourced and then converted into production race car specification. The bodyshell was prepared and painted throughout in its original colour to a standard that wouldn’t look out of place in a modern touring car including a full FIA welded in roll cage, whilst lightweight RUF bumpers were fitted front and rear together with ...

  • MODEL The Porsche 991 Carrera was introduced in 2011 with a naturally aspirated 3.4L engine which was smaller than the outgoing 997 yet more powerful and efficient with an output of 345 bhp at 7,400 RPM and improved fuel economy. It also had a new larger wheelbase, redesigned suspension to enhance the handling, ride, and stability at high speeds. With the roof up, the cabriolet version was nearly as quiet as the coupe whilst offering a draft free experience when lowered. THIS EXAMPLE This ...

The 911 was traditionally a 2wd car, but this new 964 initially featured a new 4wd driveline and a powerful 3.6 twin plug engine, with a 2wd variant following shortly afterwards. New coil sprung suspension, ABS and power steering offered a significantly modern driving experience ...

  • Introduction Paul Stephens began specialising in Porsche in 1994, and as the company approached its tenth anniversary, he was developing his series of bespoke cars based on the Porsche 911. Officially launched at Brands Hatch in 2005 under the PS Autoart brand, the initial models were the 240C which was based on the 3.0SC and the Lightweight 300R, based on the Porsche 964 which featured a 300BHP 3.8-litre engine and retro styling cues from the ‘73 RS. The reception was very positive, and orders ...

Manufactured in September 1971, it is believed to be only the 4th RHD 2.4S to come off the production line, making it one of the first of the 72 model year cars, which are considered by many, to be the most desirable series today. Through the 60s and 70s, Porsche used their motorsport experience to improve the road cars they were producing and for the 1972 model year, some significant changes were made ...

  • The Model The 991.2 GTS is the top of line 911 before heading into Porsches GT series. Powered by a 3.0 Turbo-charged flat-six engine, the 991.2 generation is the first to feature turbocharging across the board resulting in increased fuel economy and improved torque. Power is also up to an impressive 450bhp. Remarkably, the car still has an incredible throttle response despite being turbocharged. The GTS polishes up other aspects over the standard 991.2 Carrera S culminating in a really rather ...

The 993 C2S is arguably the most desirable of the normally aspirated 993’s with its driving experience purer than the C4S. This is due to it weighing 25kg less allowing it to be marginally quicker over a standing kilometre, nimbler on the road and features lighter steering that gives ...

  • In the 1980s, Porsche and the 911 was a desirable sports car that unlike most of its rivals could be used daily. For the 1984 model year, the iconic Carrera name was to be seen on a standard 911 for the first time and with a new, bigger 3.2 litre engine would now comfortably exceed 150mph. What differentiated the 911 Carrera `Sport` model was the addition of front and rear spoilers, 16 inch Fuchs wheels, Bilstein shock absorbers and electric sports seats as standard, later variants were ...
