Hello and welcome...

My name is Dan Conlon and I am the CLO of SportsCarLocate. Since our start up back in 2009 I have dedicated my energy to sourcing our clients the best purchase opportunities available on ownership worthy sports & exotics.

If this is your first visit to the site you'll certainly want to learn more about just who we are, what we do and of course you will want to understand just how our unique business model can be of benefit to you in your hunt for your right Sports or Exotic car. I ask that you take a moment to: learn about us.

Celebrating Our 10th Season

Spring is in full swing and fresh stock is being added to the market daily. We have been receiving lots of early interest this season and we are now back in the hunt after a wee bit of a winter break. Time to stop looking and start buying if you want to get in on the pre-spring opportunities!

This is our 10th season of operation and we can't wait to hear from you to learn what it is that you may be after. Historically some of the best buying opportunities come flooding into the market in the spring as seller's are finally ready to let their toys go.  Generally the North America economy is back on the boil, with minimal unemployment and we expect enthusiast focused car sales will be strong this year.

Looking for a Sports, Exotic or Muscle car - Modern or Classic Era... we can help you to cut through the crap and find the good ones. If you are seriously looking... don't forget that we are in the marketplace each and every day, so if you are on the hunt please don't hesitate to call or email now to discuss how we may assist you in finding you your 'right' car.

Classic Sports Cars, have over the past decade, proven themselves to be a great place to store some money. We are big believers in the 'Drive and Enjoy Investment' concept, hence we suggest that you don't park all your savings in the bank as your garage may prove to be a much better storehouse for your wealth over the longer term, plus you actually get to enjoy your toy!

 

Although you may find that many of our current picks are Porsche cars we also custom source other sports & exotics - modern era or classic, virtually whatever our clients desire. So if a Porsche isn't your thing please don't hesitate to call and discuss your desired make/model we would be please to help to source the right car.

Important Note: SportsCarLocate is not here to sell you a car. We are vehicle locators 'not a vehicle dealer' and we do not broker, buy, sell or trade in vehicles at any time. Our clients make their own independent vehicle buying decisions without pressure or inducements from us as we have zero financial interest in any car we source. All vehicles listed on this web site are offered for sale by their owners and all agreements to purchase are solely between the buyer and the seller.

Fresh Find: Sept 17th, 2019 - Pure Value on this fast appreciating Porsche model.

It wasn't too far back in time when you could find a nice 968 on the cheap... well those days are gone, but that said this lovely example is priced to allow you to go back in time and grab a great 968 for less.

Straight up this is something we rarely offer as it has a blip in it's Carfax History - a 2014 incident where the front and back bumper covers were replaced due to damage while in shipping and with exception of that incident it is a pristine history piece.

1994 Porsche 968 Cabriolet with 78k original miles (3k miles per year) - reportedly all original paint with the exception of the bumper repair. Gorgeous and super fresh throughout in factory Grand Prix White on Tan Leather.

Lots of recent work in the last 5k miles including Timing Belt, Water Pump, Clutch and a Front End Engine Reseal.

Considered by many enthusiasts to be the very best front engine Porsche the 968 provides a wonderfully balanced chassis, good power and are simply a blast to drive.

Pure Value at $15,900. USD in today's market!

Fresh Find: Sept 16th, 2019 - RSR Tribute - unique and quite special given the aggressive price point.

Built off of a Lightweight 1972 911 Chassis this Porsche was the subject of a impressive conversion to a Forward-Dated RSR. The conversion using 930 'All Metal' Fenders, Bumpers, and Butt Welded Rear Fender Flares was completed approximately 15 years ago, and at that time a high quality, windows out repaint was completed to it's current Gleaming Black.

Interior has newer black carpeting, reupholstered original 1972 leather seats and RS Door Panels.

Engine is a rebuilt Euro SC 3.0L featuring the large port heads and added were high strength head studs, PMO 46mm Carbs & Intakes, B&B Stainless Steel Headers and Bursch Mufflers etc. Transmission is a SC/915 which has also been rebuilt.

Suspension has also been fully upgraded as have the brakes and it is wearing RSR Fuchs.

Yes it is a Targa not a Coupe but all said this is one heck of a buy for the Air Cooled - Porsche Enthusiast that wants it all for less.

What's not to love with a private seller's ask of just $42,000. USD

Fresh Find: Aug 28th, 2019 - Don't wait to call on this lovely 911 Coupe as it is destined to sell soon...

Super fresh 1983 Porsche 911 Super Carrera that has been shown some serious love throughout it's years. 104k well documented miles from new. A U.S. car that was imported into Canada many years ago and has been under the care of two PCA Members ever since.

Fantastic, sharp driver that the current owner has gone through to ensure all of the little bits and pieces have been attended too.

Car looks great and needs nothing but a new lover.

Solid value given that the car is now a local piece and ready to be enjoyed.

Offered at a sensible $51,000 CAD or if you happen to be a U.S. or Euro based buyer this works out to approximately just $38k USD, which will prove hard to match in this condition.

Fresh Find: Aug 26th, 2019 - Oh little GTO... straight out of Sunny California - an original black Plate Cali car that has lived a good life in that car friendly dry climate.

This is the model that virtually started the Muscle Car craze and it remains desirable given it's great looks and prodigious performance.

1966 Pontiac GTO - Date Coded Tri Power Coupe - Original Documented car with one repaint in it's factory colour combo. Mechanically rebuilt with a more modern 200 R4 Transmission added - Factory Positrac Rear End.

Reportedly the car runs better than she looks, so it must be might fine as she looks good throughout and underneath too.

Fresh Find: Aug 22nd, 2019 - So much to love on this End of the Air Cooled Era 993!

1995 Porsche Carrera 993 Coupe - one of just 1776 that were produced by Porsche in this model year. These RWD Coupes are always in demand and they are widely considered to be the best of the Porsche Air Cooled Breed.

272hp H6 with 6 Speed Manual and this particular car has the all too rare factory Limited Slip Diff - Option 220, making it all the more desirable.

Lovely example in Black on Tan Leather, Cup Rims, Xenon Lights, Motor Sound Package etc. Higher mileage than some at 139k miles on the odometer, but this car has been loved and treated right by it's long-term owner of 16 years... that right the current owner has had the car since 1997!

Service records since 1997, Specialist Porsche Garage Maintained and best yet the 993 Engine underwent a full rebuild at 105K miles.

Cosmetically the car shows as a far younger/lower mileage example, everything works including the cold A/C, no known mechanical issues.

Hard to find one like this with an ask of just $46,750. USD

1966 Porsche 912

Described by the knowledgeable Porsche focused, seller as a Very Honest, Rust Free, California Black Plate Original!

The subject of a detailed older restoration that has stood the test of time. Non Numbers Matching Engine with Webers, yet looks the part of an all original car as it makes use of the original Air Cleaners.

Looks great in it's original Polo Red on a Black Interior with Pepita Cloth Inserts.

Porsche COA is with the car.

Super nice find at $39,900. USD

Fresh Find: Aug 19th, 2019 - Loud & Proud - Turbo Graphics from the 80's - not for the shy guy!

Real nice clean history example with a massive file of invoices from work done over the years.

1986 Porsche 944 Turbo - 70k original miles from new and virtually stock, hence quite rare!

An absolute blast to drive down any road, but get to the curves and you will really learn what makes these cars so special. Visually I think that time has finally caught up to the 944 and to my eye it looks more correct and current today than it did back when first introduced.

Kalihari Beige Metallic on Brown Leather - both exterior and interior show beautifully as do the Telephone Dial Rims - clearly a car that has been treated right and well loved since new. Last Major Service was May 2017.

This a a whole lot of fast Porsche for just $14,900. USD

Fresh Find: Aug 19th, 2019 - Hard to find as the production numbers were quite low on this model. To our minds one of Porsche's Best!

True Factory - M491 - 'Turbo Look' Targa... virtually a 930 without the Turbo Engine as this model carries the 3.2L Carrera Engine with 5 Speed Manual. Body, Brakes, Suspension and Interior is all Turbo!

All original, with one quality re-paint in it's original Guards Red on Black Leather with Factory Sport Seats.

1985 Porsche Carrera Targa - 90,000 miles from new! One of just 65 built by Porsche for this model year... Dry Climate, California Car from New! Only 559 Targa Models left the factory for worldwide distribution over the 85-89 build period, far fewer than the Cabriolet and Coupe M491s.

Priced lower than most M491 cars that you will find, but a very nice example overall with records back to 1987. The private seller's ask is $57,000. USD

\1989 Porsche 911 Carrera

 

Fresh Find: Aug 14th, 2019 - Love what you drive on Sunday Morning... wherever your preferred place of worship may be... your church, Cars & Coffee, or the nearby hills etc.

Yes well used giving the mileage count, but that said a quick look around the car will inform you that this one has been loved.

Southern find in a highly desirable colour combo of Baltic Blue Metallic on Tan Leather.

1989 Porsche Carrera Coupe - end of era car with the venerable 217hp Air Cooled 3.2L and 5 Speed G50 Transmission... tick a lot of boxes for any Classic Porsche Buyer.

Offered by one of the most experienced purveyors of such cars who has declared it a strong runner and good to go. A recent inspection at Porsche showed compression reading of 173-176 which is evidence of earlier engine refreshment given it's 166k recorded miles. 

All said a stunningly lovely G50 Coupe priced sensibly at $42,000. USD

Fresh Find: Aug 6th, 2019 - Fabulous find and far rarer than you may have imagined, especially in this condition! One of my all time favourite cars as i was lucky enough to own one for a few years.

2000 BMW 540i Sport - Powered by a reasonably potent 4.4L V8 with 6 Speed Manual and of course RWD - Junior M5/4 Door Porsche whatever your thoughts these cars remain great 4 place Grand Touring cars, and in this condition at this price point they are hard to compare against anything else in the market.

Tough, reliable and beautifully built - a touch of old world luxury, but the heart of a hard running sports car.

One Owner, 91k original California Miles since new, pristine throughout with lots of recent work including new Michelins, Valve Cover Gaskets, Cooling System. Power Steering Pump etc.

Yes you can find one of these for less, but it will not be like this car... $8,995. USD

Fresh Find: Aug 2nd, 2019 - A truly amazing Italian Heritage yet powered by Ford!

One of the most unique and rare Italian... dare I say Exotics ever to leave Modena for America with just 284 cars produced over their short three year production run.

Developed for the likes of none other than Alejandro de Tomaso and the last car he had a hand in before he passed onto car heaven in 2001. First introduced as a prototype at the 1996 Geneva Auto Show and at that time named the de Tomaso Bigua.

Designed and produced by the very best that the Modena Italy Car Culture had to offer:

Concept by: Giordano Casarini - Technical Director at Maserati

Designed by: Marcello Gandini - preciously designed the Mirua, Countach etc. - the cream of Italian Design!

Chassis Designer: Enrique Scalabroni - Formula 1 projects included F1 Scudaria Ferrari and Williams, Dallara

Chassis Builder: Modena based Vaccari & Bosi - builder of renown for the House of Ferrari etc.

Body by: Stratime Cappelo Systems - special three ply RTM Body Panels first introduced on the Alfa Romeo SZ

Alejandro de Tomaso was a master at bringing together the best of the best and his special relationships spanned the world, including of course the good people at Ford that provided many of the mechanical bits and pieces for this car. In fact at the end of the day it was one of those special relationship that eventually saw this car go into production, as the Swedish Born - U.S. Based Kjell Qvale and his son Bruce invested $30 million USD in this project and eventually took over ownership and production of the car in Modena.

Today we have one of the only 284 produced, a final year of production model (2001) available for sale by it's private owner. Clean History, 37k original miles and virtually an all original piece finished in factory Red Metallic on Tan Leather Interior.

Powered by a potent Ford sourced 4.6L 4 Cam 320hp V8 with a 5 Speed Manual and IRS.

All this for a simply silly, well depreciated $22,500. USD

Fresh Find: Aug 2nd, 2019 - Simply said these cars to my old eyes are as pretty as a picture...

1988 BMW M6 - Impressive California Original - the dry climate fond we all dream about owning.

Stunning in it's original Deep Blue on Blue Leather Interior. Everything work and there is minimal evidence of wear anywhere you look.

106k original dry climate miles from new with a top end engine rebuild at 90k miles.

Suspension is tight, BBS rims look fabulous - a M6 in need of nothing other than a new loving cartaker.

Garage kept and still able to perform as it did in it's youth... Dinan Tuned!

$32,000. USD seems a relatively small price to ask for such a lovely example of automotive art!

Fresh Find: Aug 2nd, 2019 - Love What You Drive.. imperfect as it may be!

When you start talking value priced 928s you are not talking about mint original examples, as those cars are found rarely at a significantly higher price point.

Fabulous and quite rare - 1986.5 Porsche 928S - only a little over 2000 made in the last half of 1986 Production and significantly different than the earlier examples.

This model has the early light weight 928 chassis but carries the 5.0L 32V V8, Big Brembo Brakes & ABS from the S4 cars. Blessed with Coil Over Suspension, RMB Twin Exhaust this car runs strong with approximately 300hp on tap.

Dry Climate California Car with 109k miles accumulated with fresh paintwork in Matte Finish Silver Metallic, impressive original interior with none of the normal leather deterioration.

Lots new on the car including Pads and Rotors, Full Tune Up with plugs, fresh fluids etc.

Imperfect, but still a very nice 'Quality Driver' 928 with a private seller ask of just $15,500. USD

\1960 Austin Healey 3000

 

Fresh Find: July 30th, 2019 - Pure value for your classic sports car dollar and one of the nicest 'Quality Driver' Healeys we have seen for this money.

Clearly the product of some intense restorations over the years, all on a very solid original car - this Healey will simply blow you away when you see all of the available images.

If you have ever owned one and tried to complete a restoration you'll know the amount of money and time that has been invested in this highly presentable piece.

1960 Austin Healey 3000 - The Big Healey powered by the venerable 2.9L Inline Six.

Finished in it's factory original colour of Healey Blue on lovely Blue Leather - just as it left the factory near 60 years ago! Heritage Certificate is with the car and the car was originally delivered to California, which is pretty evident when you see the under side images... clean and solid throughout.

To my mind a unique combination of an investment grade piece yet unlike most this one is a car that can be continued to be driven and enjoyed. Weekend toy, garage art or local shows this will do the job!

Offered well at $44,500. USD.

In my estimation these Super Carrera cars (78-83) are currently provided the best value in the air cooled marketplace. Great build quality with fully galvanized panels, reliable in fact consider by many to be near bullet proof, fast and fabulous fun, virtually everything a 911 should be, but without the fat price point!

1978 Porsche 911SC Targa - California Car that was purchased by a Doctor when new and then later sold to another Porsche enthusiast Doctor. Always loved Doctor owned cars as often prove to be well cared for and very well maintained.

This car has been show lots of love including a professional full windows out/trim off repaint back in 2004 that has held up very well. Lots of work done over the years and miles with invoices to back up the car's care. A new clutch plus $7,000 USD in additional services were performed in the last 10K miles.

She is lovely throughout with what must be described as a near new interior (Seats & Carpets), clearly a rebuilt Targa Roof, with the only distraction being as to be expected crack in the dash.

This is a dry climate 270k mile example that looks great and runs strong and it's underside is near as clean and fresh as it's topside.

1972 Porsche 914 2.0L - the subject of a massive restoration some years back and part of a 35 car collection that has just been parted out due to the death of the collector.

The resto was completed on a reportedly corrosion free original 914 and near every aspect of the car received attention - light weight 916 look nose and tail replace the original chrome bumpers - Fuch Rims, 2.0L modified with Twin Empi Carbs, Dual Exhaust etc.

Impossible to build at anywhere near this price point, given today's prices on a clean 914 base car and we think it has been done just right with the right stance and performance without overpowering the original platform.

I personally had a 72/914 way back in the day, corrosion was rampant as was the norm for a northern example, but it was a simply fabulous tool to carve through the countryside at speed. It remains one of my favourite rides!

World class handling, light weight and powered by an enhanced 2.0L - this 914 would be a blast to drive.

This is special and will simple not last long with an ask of just $19,850. USD

\1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Carrera Coupe 6-Speed Manual - 19135059 - 3

 

Fresh Find: July 22nd, 2019 - The great ones never come cheap, but when compared to many other 993 Coupes this looks to be an opportunity.

If you have looked at Porsche cars as often as we have (everyday for the past 10 years) you get a sense often rather quickly about their worthiness and this is one of those cars that ticks near all the boxes. The 993 is in my mind not just the last, but also the best of the Air Cooled cars given that Porsche utilized their near 50 years of air cooled experience during it's design and manufacture.

A winner from the day it was born the 993 reins supreme as one of the top rated 911s and a car that every Porsche enthusiast should experience at some point in their lifetime.

Super rare - ONE OWNER, ALL ORIGINAL, Porsche Dealer Offered Car!

Fresh Find: July 20th, 2019 - A fabulous package and a great deal when brought to market now some 15 years ago by Mazda. The original Miata/MX5 has always been considered an enthusiast dream, a British Roadster reincarnated by the techno wizards in Japan, but it wasn't until the arrival of these Mazdaspeed Miatas that these little sports cars have the power to fully realize the enthusiast's dreams.

Rare find up here in Canada as Mazda produced these cars for just two short production years and did not deliver many MSM's into our rather small market.

2005 Mazda Miata Mazdaspeed - 178hp provided by the Turbo Charged/Intercooled Inline Twin Cam Four - hooked up to a specially reinforced 6 Speed Manual and a Torson LSD Differential.

This was a model that was fully developed for the added engine performance with enhanced suspension & wheels and so much more. Click to see Mazda's Original Brochure for this car.

Titanium Grey on Black Cloth - impressive condition throughout with only 102k, winter stored kilometers on the odometer. Yes this is a rare original Canadian Mazdaspeed not a U.S. Import.

Dealer offered, inspected and certified with a fresh set of tire on the lovely original Hart Rims.

Won't last at $10,599. CAD

Fresh Find: July 19th, 2019 - To be fair I sense that this Porsche may in fact look better in pictures than it does in real life... very much a driver and likely a long time since it has been a Garage Queen.

Still all said there is some value to be had - I think a great base car for a build out into Hot Rod Porsche. You are not taking a pristine beast and toying with it's integrity with this car and being a corrosion free, dry climate 3.2 Carrera you have a great jumping off point to modify to your liking.

1985 Porsche Carrera Coupe - Guards Red on Grey Leather - strong running car with Steve Wong Chip, good clutch and smooth shifting transmission. Good leak-down numbers and indicative of an engine that has been rebuilt a some point in it's life. Car is currently showing 200k miles on the odometer.

The car has received good attention from it's current owner and it is ready for your personal enhancements.

This could prove to be a great place to jump into the Hot Rod Porsche scene at $34,500. USD

101k careful miles - that's only 3000 miles per year!

Fresh Find: July 17th, 2019 - Don't wait on this as the 968s are now being touted by the like of Hagerty as a Buy It Now Classic.

Surprisingly few of these were produced by Porsche during some tough market years for the brand 1992-1995 before being replaced by the Boxster series.

Based of the earlier 944 cars these 968 were a big step forward for Porsche both mechanical and in overall design. Very handsome cars with a touch of 928 visually and powered by what is virtually a 928 V8 cut in half - a 3.0L Twin Cam Inline Four that produced 236 hp. The front engine/rear drive chassis provides world class handling and these cars are capable of c=keeping up the their 911 brothers from the same era.

1993 Porsche 968 Cabriolet - 6 Speed Manual car - dry climate California find with just 89k original miles and oh my she looks super fresh from front to back.

A fabulous combination of great value & impressive performance - hurry as this will not last at $17,999. USD

Fresh Find: July 17th, 2019 - My best advice is to grab this Canadian Original before someone else does!

We know this car as we assisted it's current owner to source it a few years back. The car was sourced in Toronto from a private seller that had taken very good care of the piece. The current owner continued the care the respect that this car has been shown since new, but now he is ready to let it go!

1986 Porsche Carrera Targa - desirable 3.2L H6 with 5 Speed 915 transmission - finished in it's factory original Guards Red on Black Leather with optional Factory Sport Seats.

Just 104k garage kept, winter stored kilometers from new (only 64k original miles)

Cosmetically very nice throughout and mechanically correct.

Great value for anyone looking for an air cooled at just $52,000. CAD ($39k USD)

Fresh Find: July 15th, 2019 - sports Car... let's not kid ourselves this is no sports car, far more an Executive GT, but still a piece of automotive history that should continued to be treasured.

Beautifully kept, properly maintained and a very rare find in this condition at this age. Garage kept it's whole life, virtually original and blemish free with very minimal evidence of wear & tear.

Kept by the current curator as a 'special day' driver, it has been kept away from the elements and treated as a collection piece, but now the lack of storage is forcing his hand to sell.

Powered by a potent yet butter smooth 395 hp V12 with Torque to spare and capable of sending this impressively significant Coupe down the road at speed. Test from back in the day show 0-60 in 6 Seconds and a 155 mph top speed (restricted by the electronic limiter).

A car that remains as nice inside as it is out and stock with one modification being the 18" AMG Monoblock Rims (the original 16" Rims also come with the car).

Just reduced to $10,999. USD by the private owner/seller. Direct to you from one of the best Porsche Specialist shops in the South West... a dry climate stunner that has been prepped and now ready for it's next caretaker.

On offer via the Porsche Specialist shop that has maintained this car for many years. Freshly gone through and fully serviced by some of the best Porsche Techs in California.

Pure value with an ask of just $38,911. USD - don't ignore this just because it's a Targa as it is a wonderful air cooled 911 for this money and it would be tough to match anywhere.

Fresh Find: July 12th, 2019 - Virtually original, a rare thing at near 40 years of age.

Another rust free, dry climate air cooled 911.. we say that often, but please don't consider this to be the norm in the market, for if you look north you will see that many of these old 911s are suffering from a life in the damp and cold that has inflicted a lot of damage to the vehicles metal panels, both up top and down below. It is often hidden away and can be tough to see, but once damaged by the tin worm metal corrosion never stops.

1980 Porsche 911SC that has been driven, but still clearly shown lots of love!

Matching numbers car finished in it's original factory Light Blue Metallic on Beige Leather. You'll note that the interior is very nice overall but the front seat have been switched out of a pair in a darker brown - nice seats wrong colour.

Lots of money invested in maintenance over the past few years and the underside shot of the engine gives some good hints as to how this car has been kept.

149k original miles recorded.

So a lovely air cooled 911 that looks great and runs strong for $37,900. USD

One of the nicer examples we have seen lately and if you happen to be an Alfa fan you'll kno doubt like what you see.
