Perhaps the most frequent question fired into the ears of my editorial staff and I this year has been, “What’s going on with the classic market?” Unfortunately the query is as complicated as it is common: there is no easy answer. There’s no question those glorious days of ‘the great Porsche boom’ (think circa 2014 to 2016), where values of classic and modern-classic 911s appreciated almost on a weekly basis, are long gone, replaced with a period of stability as the market has caught up with itself. Many dealers are adamant this period of stabilisation has carried on into 2018, but there is evidence the market appears to have slowed in places. Many enthusiasts have picked up on this and, despite experts still doing their best to talk the market up, we’re…

Project Gold takes centre stage at Rennsport Reunion New factory-built 993 Turbo makes public debut ahead of auction Porsche’s extraordinary ‘Project Gold’ build of a ‘one of one’ special-edition 993 Turbo, more than 20 years after production of air-cooled 911s ceased at Zuffenhausen, has made its public debut at Rennsport Reunion VI. The car has been put together by Porsche Classic, with its styling and gold paintwork evoking that of Porsche’s current 991 Turbo S Exclusive Edition. Painted in the same Golden yellow metallic, the body of this collector’s item is ‘based on’ an original 993 body shell, with side air intakes present from the Exclusive 993 Turbo S, which was also available as an option on the regular 993 Turbo. Porsche says a brand-new 3.6-litre 993 Turbo engine was installed into the…

Porsche second at Laguna Seca IMSA epic Works RSR just 2.4 seconds off victory in penultimate race of the year Porsche’s works effort in the US narrowly missed out on a second IMSA Sports Car Championship victory of the season after a thrilling race on the storied Laguna Seca circuit in California, the venue which only weeks later played host to Rennsport Reunion VI. Starting from 7th position on the grid in the GTLM class, the #912 works car of Laurens Vanthoor and Earl Bamber battled through a hectic field over the two hour and 40 minute race, made entertaining by vastly different fuel strategies between teams, not to mention the many caution periods. During one caution period at the halfway mark the #912 team decided to pit Earl Bamber early, handing the lead…

Nothing prepares you for Le Mans. It is an amazing event. Back in 1977 I couldn’t believe my luck being chosen as a factory driver for Porsche, yet here I was in the beautiful Martini Racing liveried 936 leading the race with Jürgen Barth and Jacky Ickx in my team. They were going to give me the honour of taking the checkered flag. Everything was going marvellously well. The car felt good, everything was good. We weren’t in jeopardy of being caught by anybody. Then I felt this sort of tightness in the engine. I looked out the rear-view mirror and there was blue smoke billowing out of the exhaust pipes. I thought, “Oh my God!” I stuck the microphone in my helmet and said, “This is car four, we have an…
