1975 Porsche 911S 2.7 Targa This 1975 Porsche 911S 2.7 Targa is a really pretty car, with its white paintwork, polished Fuchs alloy wheels, brushed aluminium Targa hoop and freshly refinished chrome trim, all of which gives it a true classic appearance. It’s rare, too, as not many of these mid-1970s 911Ss were built, and few survive to this day. The interior is lovely, with its wonderfully period green tartan seats, which are in superb condition, having been retrimmed just last year, as was the Targa roof. Mechanically, it’s a well sorted car, too. The engine was rebuilt in 1997 by JZ MachTech and it has covered just 13,000 miles since then. The clutch was replaced the same year, and a large number of invoices for body seals suggests that the bodywork also received a thorough refurbishment in 1997. The brakes were refurbished last year, with new discs, calipers and pads, and the dampers were replaced as well. If you are looking for a classic 911 without the cost or compromises of a pre-impact bumper Porsche, then this is a perfect choice. And, being over 40 years old, it is exempt from road tax. It comes with the distinctive numberplate “HEK 569” which appears to […] £29,995

2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S This Porsche 996 Carrera 4S is a car we sold some years ago so we are delighted to have it back in stock. It is finished in Lapis Blue Metallic which suits the wide-bodied car with its full-width rear reflector very much. It has the sought after factory switchable Sports exhaust that makes the car sound like a true 911. And this has been set-up to give the ‘louder’ exhaust note by default; you press the button to make it quieter. It’s not a noisy exhaust, though, just throatier and sportier than normal. The interior is finished in full Graphite Grey leather with hard-backed Sports seats (with Porsche crests embossed into the headrests) and the added bonuses of a body-coloured centre console, carbonfibre door sill covers plus carbonfibre and alloy gear knob and handbrake lever. The car has the original CDR22 radio/CD head unit linked to the upgraded Bose Sound Pack, which sounds superb. Other options include an Alcantara headlining and rain-sensing wipers. The car has also been retrofitted with an IMS Guardian that gives advance warning in the unlikely event of the IMS engine bearing failing. The Carrera 4S boasts the Turbo suspension and brakes, which makes it a […] £21,995

1991 Porsche 964 Carrera 2 It’s rare to get Porsche 964 Carrera 2 coupes in stock, so we’re delighted to offer this Tiptronic example. Finished in black, it has been subtly updated with Cup 2 alloy wheels and teardrop mirrors (as fitted to later 964s), and looks fantastic. The car benefits from a sunroof. The interior is finished in Linen (that’s the colour, not the material) leather and the front seats have recently been reconnollised so are in great condition. The Porsche’s service book is missing. However, there is some paperwork and the car was last serviced in July 2015. It was also registered as Cat D in 2002, but there is no evidence of major damage today. It is for these two reasons, that this Porsche is so attractively priced. Don’t let this put you off, though, because we are confident it is a good example and, as with all our Porsches, it will receive a full mechanical inspection and anything we find amiss will be rectified before sale. In addition, the Porsche will be given 12 months’ MoT and six months’ warranty when it is sold. Part exchange and finance available; click here for details. £24,995

1990 Porsche 944 S2 This Porsche 944 S2 is finished in rare Tahoe Blue Metallic and looks absolutely stunning. It has had just four owners from new and has obviously been well looked after and is very original, inside and out. It really is a joy to behold and to drive. The interior is finished in Linen leather and is all in refreshingly good condition, with a sunroof. There is a modern Sony radio/CD head unit and remote locking and immobiliser system. The Porsche is complete with a sunroof bag, luggage compartment blind, and original toolkit and tyre compressor. The car comes with all its original booklets in their leather wallet, and the service record has been kept up to date, with stamps in the book and some invoices. The all-important cambelt was changed at 117,000 miles. The S2 was the last and best of the 944 range, with a wonderfully torquey and powerful 3.0-litre engine. The combination of front engine and rear-mounted transmission gives a near 50/50 weight distribution which ensures predictable and precise handling. This, coupled with unsurpassed build quality, makes the 944 a formidable machine. It is an increasingly sought-after modern classic that can, if you wish, be used daily. Good […] £11,995

There’s a new Porsche 718 Boxster but don’t forget the original

Today, Porsche unveiled its next generation Boxster, and what a departure it is! First, the car’s got a new badge – 718. Previously, Boxsters were badged just that – Boxster – with the model number something that Porsche nerds used to differentiate the different versions. Now, though, the car proudly wears its number, leaving the ‘Boxster’ badge as a suffix. It’s a return to the days of Porsches being given numbers – 356, 911, 944, 928 and so on. Having a name and a number seems a little confusing, although Porsche does point out that there is also the 911 Carrera… The 718 moniker was originally used on mid-engined sports cars that Porsche built in the 1950s and 1960s. That is significant, as those little racecars used four-cylinder engines, and the new Boxster has ditched the flat-six engine in favour of a four-cylinder power unit which is turbocharged. The standard engine develops 300bhp while the S variant pushes out 350bhp, so you’re not getting shortchanged by losing two cylinders. The new Boxster is based on the outgoing model but with cosmetic refinements which, it has to said, create a wonderful looking car, but one that has lost the purity and […]

Why the Porsche Cayman is so good

We’ve had several Porsche Caymans in stock recently and it’s been great getting reacquainted with such a great car. The Cayman was introduced in 2006 and was essentially a Boxster with a fixed roof and hatchback. However, to describe it like that would be to do the Cayman an injustice. The stiffer bodyshell created by the steel roof meant that Porsche could endow the coupe with stiffer suspension settings to make the Cayman a better-handling car. It was initially offered in two guises. First on the market was the S which was powered by a mid-mounted 3.4-litre, flat-six boxer engine derived from the 3.2 litre Boxster powerplant with cylinder heads from the 997 S’s 3.8-litre engine. The power is fed through a six-speed manual Getrag 466 gearbox, while a five-speed Tiptronic transmission was optional. Hot on its heels, the entry-level Cayman is powered by a 2.7-litre unit, again based on the Boxster powerplant. This produces 245bhp and gives the car good performance. Unlike the S’s six-speed gearbox, the original Cayman has a five-speed transmission, while Tiptronic was an option. Today, these early Caymans are remarkably good value for money, with prices of decent examples starting at around £16,000 for an […]

Ferdinand Porsche – the great innovator

When it comes to innovators, Ferdinand Porsche is hard to beat. This was the man who designed a four-wheel-drive electric car at the start of the 20th century which pioneered the principles behind NASA’s Lunar Roving Vehicle developed by Boeing in the early 1970s. And 100 years later car manufacturers are now exploring similar technology to produce the emission-free vehicles of the future. To say Ferdinand Porsche was ahead of his time would be an understatement. Porsche was born in Maffersdorf in Bohemia (now part of Czechoslovakia) in 1875. From an early age he enjoyed all things mechanical and electrical, and as a child he rigged the family home with an electricity supply; something that didn’t impress his father, Anton, who wanted his son to become a tinsmith like him. The young Ferdinand, had other ideas, though, and at the age of 18 took an apprenticeship at Bella Egger, an electrical equipment company in Vienna. It was here that Porsche managed to further his education by sneaking into lectures at the local Technische Hochschule (technical college) where he listened and took copious notes. An establishment which, many years later, would award him with an honorary doctorate. This unconventional education put […]

New Top Gear presenter Chris Harris drives a Porsche 991 GT3 RS

It’s just been announced that motoring journalist Chris Harris is to be one of the new Top Gear presenters. This is great news. Not only is Chris passionate about cars and a great driver, he’s also a true Porsche fanatic. He’s also produced countless videos proving his worth behind a camera. This video shows Chris road-testing a Porsche 991 GT3 RS, and it’s not only entertaining but also informative and informed. A great combination of qualities.
