Porsche Bubble (Butt) – 1979 Porsche 928

June 2, 2014

With all this talk about the bubble in Porsche values, you’d think there was not a single affordable Porsche for the whiners to purchase. Sure, it sucks that not everybody got their hands on a 911S for $12,000 in 1990, but are you in this for the money, or the cars? If you are looking for Porsche engineering with a low cost of entry, you have to find the cars at the bottom of the depreciation curve. Back in the 1990s or the aughts (did we ever decide what the last decade was called?), 911 targas and 914s were the accessible Porsches. Ten to twenty years on, the accessible cars are 924s, 944s, and 928s – and who knows, perhaps in 20 years, someone will be complaining about the bubble in 928 values. Want to get in on the ground floor? Check out this 1979 Porsche 928, for sale for $3900 in San Carlos, CA.

Scoop! 1981 Porsche 928S

October 31, 2013

People always carp about how the 928 is complex, how it needs a lot of service, etc. But what if you take the perspective that the demise of the car is already a forgone perspective (sacrilege!), and that you’re just here to help it enjoy its golden years? Sort of like a hospice nurse for a terminal patient. Anyhow, with thousands of Porsche 928s made, and many at the lower end of the market that are probably not worth repairing, you might try that with this car. The first question you might be asking as you read this is, should this be in the Bad Ideas subgroup? Well, it’s possible, but this car seems to have many things going for it. You can find this grey market 1981 Porsche 928S for sale for $3000 in San Francisco, CA.
