It is with some trepidation that we here at Garage Woolery announce that we have sold our classic 1966 Porsche 912. After driving and enjoying the 912 for a little over a year, being constantly approached by people asking to sell it to them, we finally got an offer that we couldn’t refuse and the 912 went to a new, loving home.
The Porsche torche was passed…
…but we’re crazy here Garage Woolery, and found ourselves buying another classic Porsche less than 48 hours later!
We used the proceeds from the hesitant sale of the Porsche 912 to step immediately back into the Porsche ring, and the Porsche torche was passed to our newest acquisition: A 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 (993) coupe with a 6-speed manual transmission! After all the money math was done, we figured out that our total investment for this aquisition came out to less than $10K…which is pretty amazing considering that 993’s are averaging values over four times that much today on the collector market.
So far, the only mods we’ve done have been maintenance related and changing the wheels to thin 5-spoke OEM BBS wheels from the 2002 Porsche 996. This car runs and presents like a brand new car, and we’re very happy with the results so far. It is a blast to drive, too.
Future plans are mostly reductionist in nature. We plan to remove some of the lesser used (and weighty) items from the car to make it lighter and cleaner. We won’t be going overboard, however…we want to maintain this 993’s elegance as a first class GT luxury sports car.
