Fresh Find: Jan. 16, 2018 - Fun, fabulous ride - a weekend toy with a potential upside.

This is one of the all too rare Special Edition ALMS Package cars which were built by Audi to commemorate Audi's Championship Seasons (2000 & 2001) in American Le Mans  Series racing.  Only 1000 of these special edition cars were produced (500 Red on Silver Leather and 500 Avus Silver on Red Leather) and finding a nice one like this, stock, original and both looking and running great is getting harder by the day.

These original Audi TT's are a piece of modern art for the road and with the 225hp Twin Cam Turbo and 6 Speed Manual found in this car I can tell you that these cars can motor. How do I know, I own one!

Beautiful inside and out in it's special edition Avus Silver Pearl on stunning Brilliant Red Nappa Leather with the unique special edition 9 Spoke, 18" rims finishing off the look.

This 2002 example is a dry climate find, clearly well cared for with 82k original miles on the odometer (130 km). The car show little if any of the normal wear and tear you would normally find on a TT at this mileage... very nice throughout.

Yes you are paying a small premium for the ALMS Edition we believe that it is all money very well spent as over time there is near certainty that this model will be recognized as a classic with appreciating values to match.

Fabulous fun to own and drive with strong performance, great handling (AWD) and impressive brakes.

Offered at an attractive $11,900. USD

Fresh Find: Jan. 16, 2018 - Opportunity to buy a great one for less. Truly one of the most beautifully designed and crafted sports cars of the modern era and this is your chance to get one well depreciated yet mint throughout.

2009 Aston Martin Vantage - Rare 'true' 6 Speed Manual  with the new for 2009 420hp four cam V8 (50hp more than the earlier years).

This is a ONE OWNER, all original, pristine history example with a well documented service history from the day it left the showroom floor right up until the present day. Fully Serviced prior to sale - it needs nothing.

Gorgeous in Mariana Blue Metallic on Sahara Tan Full Leather. Just 30k southern miles from new with no prior damage recorded. Looking around the car it is clear that this was a loved and respected piece.

A great performing, modern era Brit exotic that still turns heads everywhere it goes and you're getting it now for pennies on the dollar. The first and only owner took the depreciation hit on this and the next buyer in gets to enjoy his largess.

Pure Value for an 09 at just $54,990. USD

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2009-Aston-Martin-Vantage-Base-Hatchback-2-Door-/382345601236?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

 

 

Fresh Find: Jan. 15, 2018 - Pristine Porsche... the model that probably saved Porsche from disaster. Crazy to think of Porsche being in financial distress, but in the 90s things were not going good for Porsche financially and the development and success of the Boxster line helped Porsche significantly to keep moving forward through those lean years.

First Year Boxster... 1997 Porsche Boxster - this one is near as new as you are likely to find as it has travelled just 22k miles since being built. Clearly this is a car that has been loved and respected throughout its lifetime as now at 20 years of age it looks just like it did when it left the factory floor, with none of the normal wear and tear you see on these cars at this age.

This is a pristine history example that has been left stock with its original 2.5L engine and 5 speed manual intact.

Read the reports online and you will learn just how revolutionary this car was upon introduction back in 1997. The handling and on road performance rivals and exceeds the various sports cars from the past and matches classic 911 capabilities.

Looking for a sensible, near new sports car ride, this mint Boxster will be tough to match at $11,888. USD

https://www.ebay.com/itm/112744916640

 

 

Fresh Find: Jan. 15, 2018 - A true 'Diver's Car' and a bargain buy too... quite the combination for the guy that wants to own and actually drive an Italian Exotic for pennies on the dollar.

2005 Maserati GranSport (Coupe) finished in it's original and still beautiful Blu Mediterraneo on Blue Leather. Fully optioned with all of the 'I Wants' and powered by the 400hp Ferrari sourced 4 Cam V8 with F1 Type Transmission. These GranSports are truly Ferrari alternates for the enthusiast that want that Ferrari look, feel and performance, but not the insane costs of ownership.

49k original miles on this which equates to less than 4000 miles per year and offered by an authorized Maserati Dealer, not some second rate shop.

Lots to love about this once in a lifetime ride at a difficult to match $20,888. USD - Let's dig deeper together and see whether this is the one for you - call today.

Fresh Find: Jan. 12, 2018 - One of Porsche's greats - the 928 Series cars are on the cusp of rediscovery and although they are now a bit off the ground floor we feel there remains lots of future upside for these Bahn Blasters.

This is an all too rare find in today's 928 market, a virtually original, unmolested S4 with gleaming paintwork, unmarked rims and a very impressive interior that shows minimal wear throughout.

1987 Porsche 928 S4 - 32V Four Cam V8 hooked up to a 4 Speed Auto Transaxle. Now I know that you really want the 5 Speed Manual version of this car, but lets be realistic they are few and far between and you aren't getting one of those for this kind of money anymore.

Pristine No Accident History on this 98,000 mile car, showing just two loving owners from new with lots of recent service work completed in the last two years.

With 316hp on tap and a curb weight of 3500 lbs you can see why the Porsche's 928 commercials from the day compared Autobahn travel times to air flight.

Looks to be pure value at $14,900. USD - so call today.

Fresh Find: Jan. 12, 2018 - If you suffer from Brit Car Enthusiasm and have yet to find something special to love this low production car could tick a lot of boxes for you.

1986 TVR 280i Convertible... yes maybe for some just a little too much 80's Wedge on this model, but still a very well performing Brit Car with a passion for the twisties.  Powered by Ford's 2.8L Fuel Injected V6 and a Manual Transmission that gets you in on the drive. Nicely balanced Tube Frame Chassis with independent suspension, disk brakes all around too.

Cabin is covered in traditional Leather & Wood which all looks good on this car with the exception of some patina on the driver's seat, but no rips! One known good quality repaint since new in it's original Red.

66k original miles and it runs and drives strong with no known mechanical needs currently.

Lots of real Brit car value here for $$9,900. USD

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1986-TVR-G80-280i-Convertible-/162843725497?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

 

1997-Porsche-911-Carrera

 

Fresh Find: Jan. 11, 2018 - So the holidays are over and life returns to normal for most of us.

First picks of the new year... Yes there are lots of 993 Cabs floating about the market but few match the combination of low mileage, maintenance and actual condition found in this one.

1997 Porsche Carrera Cabriolet - 282hp Varioram Air Cooled H6 (the final iteration of Porsche's fabulous air cooled engines) with the desired 6 Speed Manual Transmission.

30k original well documented miles from new!

Stunning in glimmering Black on Cashmere Leather with a Black Top and Cup Rims. 

993s don't come nicer than this at the sensible ask of $59,900. USD

Fresh Find: Jan. 11, 2018 - Bargain Buy! Not for everyone given the mileage, but if you are looking for a potent, soft top road warrior for the up coming season and you are on a tight budget this one is a rare and rather delicious find.

2002 BMW 'M3' Cabriolet - Difficult to source 'true' 6 Speed Manual example with 333hp on tap, provided by it's blissful Twin Cam Inline 3.2L Engine.

If you are frightened by high mileage '163k original miles' then this find is not for you, but don't stop reading quite yet as there is more to learn. What makes this stand out from the others in the marketplace is the fact that it is a rarely found 'One Owner M3' and better yet it has been treated right by it's one and only adult owner. Garaged Kept and Serviced Religiously with documentation to back up the story.

The car shows shockingly well cosmetically with very little of the normal wear you commonly see on this model even at less than half the mileage of this one, again great evidence of a life very well lived.

Mechanically the car is in need of nothing currently and it is ready to be enjoyed.

Unbeatable value  at $8,495. USD

https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/detail/722206585/overview/?aff=atempest&CMP=atempest

 

 

Fresh Find: Jan. 11, 2018 - The winter weather onslaught is in full tilt, but spring is on the way and when spring arrives you'll be wishing that you had one of these or something like it in your garage. Don't wait till the arrival of the spring market... buy now!

She's a beauty and it is a Euro Carrera with 23 additional horsepower when compared against the less potent U.S. market cars from this era.

1985 Porsche Carrera Targa in Guards Red on Black Leather with Sport Seats - air cooled, 3.2L Carrera Engine with 5 Speed 915 Transmission, Fuch Rims and she is tailless too! 

Nicely documented since importation out of Europe in 1992 - just 85k miles on the car.

Overall a very impressive 'Drive Quality Carrera' that is ready to enjoy and impress.

Looks like a value buy at $39,995. USD

2000 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Carrera Coupe 6-Speed Manual - 16768652 - 12

 

Fresh Find: 17.12.18 - Love What You Drive for the holidays and do it for less!

Mint, marvelous find, out of dry sunny California. All original, with fabulous a factory build including the all too rare Full Aero Package and 18" Modular Sport Design Rims.

2000 Porsche Carrera Coupe - 996 - 295hp H6 with 6 Speed Manual - as near to a 996/GT3 as you'll find yet priced at less than one third the price.

39,000 original, pristine history miles from new and gorgeous in Ocean Blue Metallic on Grey Leather.

We have seen a few of these over the years but none as nice as this one for just $25,800. USD

1998 Ferrari F355 Spider Convertible Chicago IL

 

Fresh Find: 17.12.12 - Stunning example of a Prancing Horse.

1998 Ferrari F355 Cabriolet - 375hp 4 Cam V8 with 6 Speed F1 Transmission.

Just 21k original miles with a Pristine CarFax - This is a ONE OWNER Car purchased new in Florida.

Rare and beautiful in Tour De France Blue on Tan Leather with a strong option load, immaculate throughout including the engine bay. In fact near mint with the exception of some minor patina on the driver's side bolster and some of the usual stickiness and warping of some of the interior plastic (restorable).

Simply stated I think you'll look long and hard to find another F355 that compares to the provenance and overall quality of this for less.

Offered at $59,900. USD

Fresh Find: 17.12.12 - A rare find any time of year, but now that it is winter this is unusual for sure.

Not many of these Early 124s left as most have long ago disappeared into a cloud of rust dust. Not this beauty!

1970 Fiat 124 Spider - the car was the recipient of a full restoration - done to a very high standard and hence not something you'll likely see anywhere else as the actual cost to restore any car to this standard will in fact far exceed this cars value and asking price.

It would appear that nothing was left untouched during this restoration inside, outside and upside down. Best yet mechanically the car is as impressive as it is cosmetically mint. Uniquely for a well aged Fiat this car is just as nice on the underside as it is on the topside.

With an ask of just $15,900. USD this is a gift to anyone who appreciates the wonders of these 70's Italian Spiders.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Fiat-124-Spider-/142616908052?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

 

 

 

Fresh Find: 17.12.11 - Winter Buy... As the winter season starts to take hold sellers not wanting to hold off until spring have to get a little more aggressive on their pricing - if it has got to leave the fleet then you had better price it right!

Nice example of that winter mentality is today's find.

1973 MGB GT - the last of the Chrome Bumper MGBs!

Well used but still what appears to be an impressive example overall finished in its original Bronze Yellow on Black Interior. The car has been refreshed cosmetically over the years and although not perfect, it presents impressively given its age... far better than most you'll find at this price point.

The interior shows the patina you would expect of a Brit car from this era, but overall looks quite good and it remains serviceable throughout.

Looks like a great start to an MGB love affair at it's recently reduced price of $8450. USD

Fresh Find: 17.12.11 - Hurry because this will not last!

Yes I know there may be lots of these S2000s floating around the marketplace, but few will match the opportunity presented here.

Pristine History, One Owner from New, Documented Honda Dealer Serviced since new and a southern car to boot.

Pristine example with none of the usual wear and tear you find on most of these AP1 cars. No modifications from stock, garage kept and clearly loved... this is not the norm for a S2000 from this era as most have been abused by youthful owners, driven hard and put away wet!

2001 Honda S2000 - 92k well respected miles from new.

The car is on offer from the authorized Honda dealer that sold the car to it's original owner and they have serviced it ever since. Freshly inspected and ready to be enjoyed by the next lucky owner.

The S2000 offers real world performance that is tough to match and little at this price point can compare to what you get for your money with this example.

A steal for the knowledgeable enthusiast at $13,987. USD

Fresh Find: 17.12.11 - I know that you may have difficulty in understanding my excitement with this find as if you are not TVR guy from back in the day these cars may hold little interest, but for me the cars from this petite British manufacturer has always been of interest.

These cars with there fiberglass bodies on a tube frame chassis with independent suspension front and rear have always been quick, unique and fun. I wanted one then and I want one now!

This is a rather rare find in North America as although there were quite a few of the convertible version of this wedge model were brought to American by the distributor, very few of the Coupes made it to our shores.

1985 TVR 280i Coupe - 2.8L V6 with Bosch Fuel Injection backed by a 4 Speed Manual Transmission. 145hp was delivered to the rear wheels via a Jag sourced differential.

Lovely original, piece that has only 13,400 miles recorded on the odometer (believed to be actual mileage). Near zero evidence of the usual wear and tear and freshened mechanically after years of little usage.

If like me you missed out on owning one of these very special, low production Brit cars this is your chance to grab a super nice example.  Offered at $17,000. USD

Fresh Find: 17.11.29 - Driver Quality, Higher Mileage, California 964, priced to sell!

As the private seller says.. if you are looking for the perfect Porsche look elsewhere, but if you want a car that you can actually drive and enjoy this may just be the one.

1992 Porsche Carrera '2' Cabriolet (rear seat delete package) - desirable 964 model year as Porsche had corrected it's major engine issue by this time.

Garage Kept - Grand Prix White on Grey Leather - 160k actual miles, but of course being a dry climate car the cosmetic wear and tear is not like you would see in a Northern car.

Blessed with the 3.6L Air Cooled H6  with 5 Speed Manual with RWD - so power and performance is impressive.

A worthy starting point for the air cooled enthusiast looking to get into the market for the first time.

Offered at $29,000. USD

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/cto/d/1992-porschecarrera-2/6404155784.html

 

 

Fresh Find: 17.11.29 - It has become extremely difficult to source worthy Air Cooled 911s that still represent good value for the budget limited, but today we have one that we suspect may prove worth a serious chase.

Virtually original with one recent professional repaint in it's original Grand Prix White. A southern car from new (Florida/Arkansas) and just 89k original miles.

1980 Porsche 911 SC Coupe - GP White on Black Leather. Strong runner with no known major issues. 

A fabulous find at this price point $26,000. USD is the private seller's ask so hurry and make that call!

Fresh Find: 17.11.21 - So rare in North America that I doubt you'll find another that compares to this little Italian Stallion. Since it's origins in 1906 Lancia has been producing their own unique breed of automobiles and this beauty carries on the company's long tradition.

1979 Lancia Zagato - (Beta with a Targa Roof) - but this is no normal U.S. Spec Lancia as it's past owner sourced a complete VX (Volumex) Engine & Full Drivetrain + Ancillary Parts and Badges from Europe, out of a Euro Spec Version - this rare and unique engine came from the factory with a Roots Type Supercharger offering 135hp, which was a major bump up in power when compared against the rather anemic, U.S. Spec'd cars.

The base car was purchased from it's original California owner - a dry climate, never rusted example that has never seen snow or salt. One very impressive repaint in it's original colours from new!

The conversions to VX power were completed in 1993 and the car has been sparingly used ever since, garage stored.

Unique and impressive from end to end - an in era resto mod that would prove near impossible to replicate today.

Simply a fabulous Italian Sports Car at $13,900. USD

1983 Porsche 911

 

Fresh Find: 17.11.20 - A hard to match value proposition on this unique and gorgeous Porsche.

There are just not that many documented One Owner cars out there with a vehicle at 34 years of age and fewer still that have 50k original miles and look like this!

1983 Porsche SC Targa - 3.0L H6 with 5 Speed 915 Manual Transmission. This is a ROW (ZZZ) car purchased by the original owner in Germany and delivered to the U.S. hence it is the more powerful Euro version of the 3.0L engine, which offers significantly more power than the U.S. Spec cars.

The car has recently been extracted from storage and just had a new clutch, flywheel, pressure plate and release bearing along with brake service, and new tires on all four corners. The car had a leakdown, compression was also reviewed with strong results.

Better yet it has just come back from the paint shop where a full windows out repaint in it's original colour was completed along with the installation of fresh body seals throughout. Interior is original and mint and the Glass is good throughout the car. This is and was a corrosion free example!

Is the car without fault... no there remain a few minor items yet to be attended too, but this is as fresh a 911 SC as you are likely to find in the market today at anything approaching the very sensible asking price of $38,500. USD.

Fresh Find: 17.11.19 - PROVENANCE is what separates the good cars from the great... and this one has provenance in spades.

1967 Austin Healey 3000 MkIII - Purchased brand new by the scion of a prominent family who has retained ownership of this stunning Healey for some 50 years! This is one rare opportunity as there are simply very few examples of this final year Big Healey that look and drive like this piece and virtually none that are available that have been coddled like this one.

These end of era Healeys remain fabulous classic sports cars that, unlike many British classic, have the power to keep up with today's traffic.

Stunning in it's traditional British Racing Green on Black Leather with just one professional repaint since new.

55k original miles and surprisingly special everywhere you look. 

Yes there are lots of other Healeys you could buy, but few match will ever offer the opportunity offered by this find. Yours for $59,900. USD

1999 Porsche 911 Carrera 4

 

Fresh Find: 17.11.19 - Entry Level Porsche 911 priced right!

You'll have no problem at all finding a 996 Porsche for sale, they are not rare as production levels were high and the buy in from the N.A. was massive through the 996 years. There were many reasons why Porsche sold so many of these cars among them a strong economy and the fact that these were very good sports cars, highly regarded by the pundits of day.

Now near two decades after the introduction of the 996 in 1999 it has become the bargain buy of the Porsche marketplace - yes the model over the years has received a few black eyes due to a couple of well known design flaws, but all said it remains a very impressive 911 with strong on road performance and good overall reliability.

We have sourced this fresh find out of one of our favorite markets... dry, car friendly California and a nice find it is. 1999 Porsche Carrera '4' Coupe - 300hp H6 with 6 Speed Manual & AWD. A dry climate car for most of its life and for a car that is now 18 years of age, that dry climate is a very good thing - as it remains corrosion free with little of the wear and tear you would normally find on a 911 at this age and mileage.

Mileage is currently pegged at 92k on the odometer, a few more miles than some 996s, but importantly it has a well documented pristine CarFax History that shows that this car has been religiously serviced at local Porsche Dealers for most of it's long life.

Looking for that first Porsche, or seeking a daily driver capable 911... this 996 fills the bill and as priced at $13,500. USD you're unlikely to find a 911 of any vintage that compares to this for less.

Fresh Find: 17.11.17 - A BMW Shark - something we would all want in our garage!

Rare find in N.A. a Euro Spec example with those beautiful slimline bumpers, just the way the car's designer intended...  not the massive extended rubber bumpers found on the N.A. certified examples.

1984 BMW 635csi - Euro Version with the 216hp inline six (opposed to the 176hp U.S. models) and an all too rarely found 5 speed manual transmission. This is a well documented and maintained car that looks to have been imported into the U.S. when new. A no rust piece that has been stored indoors throughout it's long life and it has a clean CarFax that documents it's history and mileage too!

We sense that you would be hard pressed to find a comparable, classic 635 for less than the $19,900. USD ask for this unique and beautiful example.

1985 Porsche 928  - Salem OR

 

Fresh Find: 17.11.16 - West Coast original - and just Two Owners from New!

1985 Porsche 928S - 1985 was a turn around year for the 928 in N.A. as it was the first year for the far more potent 5.0L 4Cam 32 Valve Engine which at the time upped the power to 288hp.

The nicely documented example comes with all books along with a full set of 928 Service Manuals

Original find in Guards Red on Black Leather with Chromed D90 rims - this is the 4 speed Automatic Version which was preferred by many buyers at the time given that the 5 Speed Manual could be a bit cantankerous in this era of the 928.

106k documented miles from new and although a very well preserved example it is more nice driver quality that show car. That said try and match anything that compares in today's aggressively, appreciating market for less.

We need to dig deeper but everything we see points in the right direction on this car.

Hard to find an ownership worthy 32V - 928 anymore at $10,995. USD

1981 Porsche 911SC Coupe - 133,000 original miles strong engine with leak downs showing 2% - 3% across all cylinders.

Recent work includes: It is not too rare to find a 928s sitting all alone and left for dead in a garage, but what is rare and attractive here is the fact that this is a First Year 1978 and it remains in the hands of its Original Owner!

California car, clearly garage kept... a 128k dry climate find.

2002 BMW M Roadster

 

Fresh Find: 17.11.08 - Fat Fendered & Fabulous!

Don't get me wrong, sure we still love Porsches, but they certainly aren't the only cars we lust after!

Great find, rarely seen at anything approaching this price point... 2002 BMW M Roadster. This is the M Roadster model that stands above the crowd as it cam blessed from the factory with the S54 Engine offering it's driver 316hp to play with in an upgraded RWD chassis that can handle the power.

Note: The earlier M Roadsters 1998-2000 were powered by a 240hp engine!

Only 1600 2001/2002 M Roadsters (S54) were delivered into North American and hence given that few were made available back then, they are rather difficult to source now and finding a good one, well priced is near impossible.

This impressive find is a two owner car from new that was delivered to it's first owner in Atlanta Georgia and the car has remained in the area from birth under the care of BMW dealers and local BMW Specialist. This is a maintained, respected... in fact loved example that has been used and not left in the garage ignored. Higher mileage than some at 124k miles to date, but it is described as a car that shows wear and overall condition commensurate with an example with half this mileage.

Gorgeous in it's factory original livery of Triple Black with the factory Grey Rims - this is a no damage, original paint car!

Recent service including: new control arms, trailing arm bushings, sub-frame bushings, tie rods, brakes, shocks, convertible top, tires, radiator and more all within the last two years.

Although not a flawless collection piece we believe that this car represents a significant buyer's opportunity at the $15,900. USD ask. Hard to replicate this one!

Fresh Find: 17.11.08 - It doesn't look like a Porsche!

The 500E/E500's built for model years 1992 - 1994 (120 special order cars were built for 1995) - these cars were the direct result of an unusual collaboration between Porsche and Mercedes Benz. Although based off of the standard E Class Mercedes Sedan it is a very different animal - taken in another direction.

Mercedes was in dire need of a performance sedan to compete with BMW's M5 and Porsche had the time and the capabilities to assist with the design and build such a car.  Each of these cars were virtually hand built being delivered back and forth between the Mercedes and Porsche plants over a period of 18 days. It turned out to be a win win for all involved... the car was very well received and it quickly developed a reputation for performance, quality and reliability that has followed it for the past 25 years.

Desirable when first introduced and becoming more desirable by the day. Not many were produced and fewer still made it into the North American market and now at 25 years of age many of these 500E/E500 cars have been beaten down and left for dead... not this one!

1994 Mercedes Benz E500 - 105k original miles from new, this is a near impossible to source ONE OWNER example - delivered back in 1994 into Washington State. The car has been well maintained by it's original owner and has just recently came out of a 10 year period of storage.  Major work has been undertaken to prep this car after it's long rest: New engine/trans mounts - New brake rotors/pads front and rear - fuel filter/air filters & New rear suspension accumulators - Differential fluid change - New tires - New headlight/windshield wiper blades. AC is operational & cold!

Now although an impressive example it is not without fault, yes there is some wear and tear, but to our eyes more maturing patina that eye sores.

A true 'Wolf in Sheep's Clothing' 5.0L Naturally Aspirated V8 offering 326hp - 0-60 in 6 seconds and 160 mph top end (with limiter).

An appreciating modern era classic priced at the low end for a solid 500E/E500 at $23,000. USD
