To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys Amelia Island event, 8 - 9 March 2019. Estimate:$225,000 - $275,000 The second gProgramm 911 built, nicknamed Mercy Driven from New York to California for Luftgek hlt 4 in 2017320-hp, 3.4-liter twin-plug engine with Weber down draft carburetorsEquipped with a 915 five-speed gearboxLess than 7,000 miles since completiongProgramm is a bespoke Porsche 911 builder based in Oyster Bay, New York, on Long Island s Gold Coast. The outfit takes G-body 911s (from 1974 1989) and improves upon every aspect of the original car. These ultra high-quality custom builds command a price tag of more than $250,000 when new and have earned a cult following in the Porsche Outlaw community. This exquisite 1978 Porsche 911 has been given the full gProgramm treatment and received the nickname Mercy. The body was media-blasted to bare metal, treated for rust prevention, and painted a beautiful shade of Slate Grey. The fuel filler was relocated to under the hood, with a center cap, similar to early Porsche R/RSRs. A set of under bumper round factory Porsche fog/driving lights are featured up front. The car rides on a set of reproduction 17-in. Fikse forged aluminum Fuchs-style wheels. The brakes are upgraded to the 986 Boxster setup front and rear, featuring four-piston calipers. The car was also fitted with the optional Leistung Package, which includes adjustable coil-over spring/damper units, with aluminum rear trailing arms, additionally all bushings, drop-links, as well as upgraded front and rear sway bars.The interior was also extensively updated. It features a set of bolstered leather racing seats with Tartan inserts and fitted with a four-point Schroth Racing harnesses. Door cards are finished in matching tartan, with pull strap handles and manual windows. A classic 350-mm Momo Prototipo steering wheel has been fitted. Behind the steering wheel is a gProgramm tachometer alongside the standard Porsche VDO gauges. The 915-transmission base is elegantly left exposed and polished with the shifter wearing an iconic 917-style wood shift knob. The car is radio-delete with hidden twin USB outlets for phone or other electronic devices. The carpets are completed in the classic German wool square weave. Lastly, a roll bar has been fitted, adding rigidity and passenger protection.The gProgramm 911 is powered by a 320-hp, 3.4-liter twin-plug engine featuring Weber down draft carburetors. The engine was completely disassembled and then meticulously blueprinted, balanced, and hand-built prior to installation. It is truly a work of art, with a twin center exhaust, stainless heat exchangers, and hidden wires and lines. The engine is paired to a 915 five-speed manual transmission.This car was one of three gProgramm Porsches driven 3,500 miles from New York to California in 2017 as a promotional trip which ended at Luftgek hlt 4. While in California this car was driven and reviewed by Matt Farah for the popular Smoking Tire web series One Take.A wonderful bespoke creation, this gProgramm 911, the second example built, is the best of both worlds with its retro-inspired design and modern performance underpinnings. With less than 7,000 miles since the completion of the build, it has been fully sorted. One would be hard-pressed to find such a Porsche Outlaw with superior build quality at this price point.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am19....

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys Amelia Island event, 8 - 9 March 2019. Estimate:$135,000 - $155,000 Exceedingly rare sunroof-delete exampleHighly desirable triple-black color combinationNumbers-matching drivetrain; 33,125 original milesPorsche Production Specifications certificatePorsche s delectable Type 930 took the automotive world by storm when it was introduced in 1974 as a 1975 model. By 1978, the 911 Turbo had become a bit more civilized and powerful than its earlier brethren. Its 3.0-liter engine had grown to 3.3 liters and acquired an air-to-air intercooler housed beneath a larger rear whale tail. Power had grown to a solid 265 hp and an impressive 291 foot-pounds of torque feeding through a four-speed, limited-slip transaxle.Porsche s first supercar was intended to out-perform every other sports car in the world and did so with aplomb. Turbos were amazingly quick, even when loaded with amenities; though leaving some of those luxuries behind served to reduce curb weight and improve performance. For those more sport-mind enthusiasts, eliminating the luxury of the sunroof greatly enhanced said performance. Without the sunroof and related mechanisms, the body was stiffer overall and thus would flex less during hard turning at speed. The lack thereof also provided additional room below the headliner, especially for those wearing a helmet on the track. This handsome triple-black 911 Turbo is quite unusual, as its first owner ordered it through a Boulder, Colorado, dealership without an electric sunroof. The car was factory-equipped with Sport Seats and Pirelli high-performance tires, and it was trimmed with Turbo decals on its quarter-panels. The consignor notes that the car has no known racing history, which is unusual for such slick top examples. In 1997, the car was sold to William Ross, another Boulder enthusiast, who enjoyed it for three years before selling it to a Michael Franson in 2000. In 2010, this menacing-looking 911 Turbo was purchased by Tom Degorter and three years ago it was acquired by the consignor. Now displaying a mere 33,125 miles, which is believed to be original, the car shows no evidence of previous damage. The paint remains almost all original; only the rear bumper has been repainted. All the mechanical components are described as having been overhauled in 2011 while under Mr. Degorter s custody, and all systems are said to operate properly. The tires are dated 2013, and the car has been recently serviced. While triple-black Turbos are among the most sought-after of their kind, those without the optional sunroof are exceptionally rare, no matter the color. This handsome example is supplied with a Porsche Production Specifications certificate, correct spare wheel and compressor, jack, tools, owner s manual, and extensive documentation covering the last 20 years of its life.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am19....

1978 Porsche 930 black beauty is as dashing as it is daring. This model was ordered from the factory as sunroof delete by its original owner an extremely rare feature for this model year. An electric sunroof was part of the Turbo package during this time, but for someone who was more interested in high-performance racing, excluding the electric sunroof was advantageous because it reduced weight and stiffened the body. A few of the amenities of this 930 include sports seats and a beautiful black exterior that is reinforced by a sensational black interior. The car was purchased out of LA from an owner who was detail-oriented and obsessed with making the car as immaculate as possible. A set of gorgeous new leather seat covers were installed by Autos International, making the interior as smooth as silk. It has the essence of a fresh, crisp, unadulterated interior, and its eager to entertain passengers once more. -Vehicle is on consignment and at our clients home -Please Call First and talk to a rep at 231-468-2809 EXT 1 -Showroom is by appointment only Please Call -If you would like a FREE Listing please visit our consignment page or Call...

1978 Porsche 911 Targa which is in excellent condition. The car has been in my family for the last 23+ years and always stored inside and has hardly even seen rain. All modifications done to the car are removable and can easily be returned to its more original state. Roughly 4 to 5 years ago, the flat 6 was removed and a fuel injected all-aluminum LS1 conversion was performed. All of the parts were sourced from Renegade Hybrids and professionally installed (no expenses spared). The car has roughly 500hp and is an absolute pleasure to drive! The aluminum small block weights the same as the fully dressed flat 6 did. The LS engine was torn down, block was resurfaced, new crank installed, new high compression pistons, new high lift cam, heads were rebuilt and valve job done, LS6 intake manifold installed and completed with a tune to match. The engine runs excellent and is neck braking fast! The Porsche 915 transaxle was opened up and a helical limited slip differential installed which nicely puts all 500hp to the ground with virtually no tire slip. All of the factory Porsche gauges run from the LS engine. The car itself has 124k miles on it with no accidents. The dash has zero cracks. It has brand new Toyo Proxes on all 4 corners. The car has many other modifications including Recaro seats, 5 pt harnesses, BOLT-IN roll cage (easily removable), 944 Turbo brake upgrade, builstein adjustables on all 4 corners, adjustable strut tower bar, sway bars. The car will come with some stock parts, maintenance records, and extras. It will not come with the original engine. -Vehicle is on consignment and at our clients home -Please Call First and talk to a rep at 231-468-2809 EXT 1 -Showroom is by appointment only Please Call -If you would like a FREE Listing please visit our consignment page or Call...

1978 Porsche 911 SC Coupe VIN 9118200471 471th built of the L-Series out of 2,436 produced in 1978 Completed September 1977 for the 1978-year model, finished in classic black with an original beige interior. A low-mile example is in beautiful condition and in excellent mechanical condition. The 911SCs were the most durable Porsches ever built and the way this car has held up proves this. Truly one of the best 911 Porsches ever built and a dream to drive! Specification Horizontally opposed, overhead-cam, six-cylinder 3.0L flat six, aluminum engine. Capable of outputting 172 HP at 5,500 RPM with 189 ft-lb of torque at 4200 RPM. 915/61 five-speed manual transmission. The front suspension consists of MacPherson struts with single lower transverse A-arms. Rear suspension is independent with semi-trailing arms. Porsche 911SC (1978 1983) In 1978, Porsche introduced the new version of the 911, called the 911SC. Porsche reintroduced the SC designation for the first time since the 356SC (as distinguished from the race engined 356 Carrera). There was no Carrera version of the 911SC. It featured a 3.0-litre engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. Originally power output was 180 bhp, later 188 bhp and then in 1981, it was increased to 204 bhp. In 1981 a Cabriolet concept car was introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Not only was the car a true convertible, but it also featured four-wheel drive, although this was dropped in the production version. The first 911 Cabriolet debuted in late 1982, as a 1983 model. This was Porsches first cabriolet since the 1965 Porsche 356. It proved very popular with 4,214 sold in its introductory year, despite its premium price relative to the open-top targa. Cabriolet versions of the 911 have been offered ever since 1983. It was during this time, that Porsche AG decided the long-term fate of the 911. In 1979 Porsche had made plans to replace the 911 with their new Porsche 928. Sales of the 911 remained so strong, however, that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into the 911 editions. 911 SC sales totaled 58,914 cars. Peter W. Schutz (CEO Porsche AG 1981 1987) wrote: The decision to keep the 911 in the product line occurred one afternoon in the office of Dr. Helmuth Bott, the Porsche operating board member responsible for all engineering and development. I noticed a chart on the wall of Professor Botts office. It depicted the ongoing development schedules for the three primary Porsche product lines: Porsche 944, Porsche 928 and 911. Two of them stretched far into the future, but the 911 program stopped at the end of 1981. I remember rising from my chair, walking over to the chart, taking a black marker pen, and extending the 911 program bar clean off the chart. I am sure I heard a silent cheer from Professor Bott, and I knew I had done the right thing. The Porsche 911, the company icon, had been saved, and I believe the company was saved with it....
