The Porsche story is a fascinating one and its roots go back to the 1930s when Professor Ferdinand Porsche was instrumental in the design of the first Volkswagen and also Auto Union race cars. By 1939 he had built three Porsche cars to compete in the 800-mile race from Berlin to Rome. Unfortunately, the race was cancelled due to the war and Porsche was forced to focus on supporting the German war effort, however, he had always wanted to build his own cars. In 1944 Porsche was forced to leave Stuttgart and he set up a small operation in Gmünd, Austria. Soon after the Porsche family and many of their engineers were captured and sent to jail. Ferdinand Porsches son. Ferdinand junior, or Ferry as he was known, was released six months later and he returned to Gmünd to rebuild the family company. Things moved quickly and Porsche was involved with cars again and in mid-1948 the first Porsche 356 was built. It is understood Porsche built some 50 aluminium bodied cars by hand in their small factory at Gmünd before relocating back to Stuttgart, Germany. The rest they say is history as the 356 evolved into one of the most successful sports cars ever built. A hard act to follow indeed . . . but its replacement, the Porsche 911 went on to become a legend! The evolution of the Porsche 911 is probably the greatest sports car story of all time. First introduced in 1963 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and then designated as a 901, the successor to the 356 took the world by storm. To avoid conflict with Peugeot, who claimed exclusive rights to car names with three digits having a zero in the middle, the car was renamed as 911. The first production 911 was built in 1964 and it was powered by an air cooled 1991cc 6-cylinder engine. The car evolved with increases in engine capacity to 2.2 litres, 2.4 litres, 2.7 litres, 3.0 litres and 3.3 litres. There were styling changes also, but one always recognised the car as a 911. Today the first series of 911s is recognised as the cars built from 1963 to 1989 and include the very popular Porsche 911 and 930 Turbo models. Of these the small bumper or pre impact bumper cars built up to 1973 are today regarded as the real classic 911, however, that comes at a price. In the last few years astute collectors and enthusiastshave seen great value in 1970s and 1980s model 911s. The Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 was introduced in 1983 as a successor to the 911SC. Interestingly, it was the first time the Carrera name had been used since 1977. Visually the new car was similar to its successor, both internally and externally. The major change to the new car was its engine. Whilst based on the SCs 3.0 litre power plant, Porsche claimed the 911 Carrera engine was 80 per cent new. The capacity was increased to 3164cc and a revised piston design increased the compression ratio to 10.3:1 on all but North American cars. But the Carreras main innovation was its Bosch Motronic 2 engine management system. This was the first production 911 to feature an ECU to control the ignition and fuel systems. In addition, the fuel injection was updated to Bosch LE-Jetronic and the induction and exhaust systems were revised. The upshot of these improvements was that power rose to 231 bhp at 5900 rpm, with torque hitting 284 Nm at 4800rpm. Porsche claimed fuel consumption to be 10 percent better than that of the SC, because of the greater efficiency of the electronically controlled engine. The last of the 911 Carrera 3.2s was built in 1989 and the model was most popular with circa 76,000 cars built during six years of production. The approximate breakdown of models was c35,500 coupes, c20,000 cabriolets and c18,500 Targas. Porsche also offered the 911 Carrera 3.2 with the option of the Turbo body (option code M491), which is most often referred to as the wide body or in some markets Supersport. Today the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 is recognised as an 80s icon and these cars are now becoming highly sought after. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a stunning 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe. Being a late model Carrera 3.2 this car has the desirable G50 gearbox. This UK delivered, factory right hand drive particular example was sold new to Janet McWhire from Comber, Northern Ireland on the 1st August 1988. The car was sold though Isaac Angew (Mallusk) Ltd in Newtonabbey. This car was delivered new in Silver (paint code 980 S7) with a Marine Blue interior (interior trim code SW, carpet colour code 4KV). The car was delivered new with the following options: recoil bumpers, heated driver and passenger seats, Blaupunkt Toronto radio cassette, high fidelity package, amplifier system, rear seat belts, forged alloy wheels anti-theft device, rear wiper, electronic front left and right seats, spoilers, sport shock absorbers, sun roof and luggage compartment trimmed in black velour carpet. The car remained in Ireland for the next 4 years, during which time it changed hands twice. In 1992 the car found its way to England where it was registered as HDZ 3033. The car remained in the UK from 1992 through until 2011, passing through a number of careful owners. The service book and history file confirm that this car has been impeccably maintained by Porsche / Porsche specialists since new. The car then found its way to Australia. There is an Import Approval on file dated 20th of January 2011. The car remained with its new owner in Sydney for the next 9 years, however, it was sparingly used travelling a meagre 400 miles in this time. The current owner of this Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe acquired the car in April 2020 and went on a journey to make, what was a very good car, a great car. Over the past year or so he has spent in excess of $50,000 to bring the car to its current level. It started with a major service by well respected Brisbane based Porsche specialist DHM Motorsport. All fluids were changed, the valve clearances were checked and adjusted where necessary, the brake callipers were overhauled, new brake pads & wear sensors were installed and the reverse light switch was replaced. The owner then decided to make some cosmetic improvements to the car. It was solid underneath but it had surface rust on suspension components and generally throughout the underside of the car. The plan was a quick tidy up of the more significant issues, however, this was a case of when youve started where do you stop! One thing led to the next before he knew it he was doing a complete underbody restoration. The entire suspension was removed from the car and worn parts were replaced with new genuine Porsche parts, all acquired through Porsche Brisbane. New shock absorbers front & rear, control arms, front & rear disc rotors, ball joints, rear spring plates & bearing covers, using new bolts/fasteners, were fitted. At the same time a host of parts were vapour blasted and powder coated, including the front struts, trailing arms, front hubs and subframe, oil cooler guard, front tow hook & under tray and the disc brake backing plates. The original 16-inch Fuchs wheels have been completely refurbished by Depulu Wheels in Ashmore on the Gold Coast and present like new. To complete the look new centre caps and new Pirelli P Zero tyres have been fitted. The original exhaust has been replaced with a new TT stainless steel system, including extractors. It sounds great and gives the car a really aggressive exhaust note, without being overly loud. Importantly, the original exhaust (which is in good condition) comes with the car. The end result is one absolutely fabulous Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe. Today this car presents essentially like new. It is difficult to fault and would not be out of place sitting alongside the new cars at The Porsche Centre Brisbanes Newstead show room. The paint work on the car is exceptional and it is a struggle to find any paint defects. We found two very small marks on the car, one on the roof and the other one is behind the door handle on the drivers side. All of the external trim is in excellent condition, complimenting the paintwork perfectly. The glass is original and in excellent condition all round. There are no chips or marks on the windscreen. The interior is a real time capsule. The dark blue leather is a perfect colour contrast with the silver exterior and it is in excellent condition. There is the slightest amount of patina, but its condition and presentation belies that this is a 30+ year old car. The instruments, controls, steering wheel, dash, head lining and even the carpets are in similar condition. As noted previously, this is a well optioned car that is fitted with a factory electric sunroof, electric windows and electric operated & heated seats. All operate perfectly. The only upgrade is the radio. A new Blaupunkt Bremen radio has been installed which looks almost identical the factory original, however, it has the added benefit of modern technology and has blue tooth. The presentation of this car is impeccable but will it be as good to drive? After driving the car for less than 5 minutes that question is answered . . .YES, the car drives every bit as good as it looks! Not surprisingly, given all of the work done to the car, it is incredibly tight and firm on the road. The steering is direct and the G50 gearbox in this car is smooth and easy to operate, something you notice immediately as soon as you select first gear. The engine in this car is strong it revs freely through the rev range. After 20 minutes out on the road we can confirm that this car lives up to its reputation in every way. These late model Carrera 3.2s are fantastic cars to drive and this example is one of the very best. COVID restrictions ignored, we would have no hesitation to drive this car to Melbourne tomorrow! Today the odometer reads 101,077 miles. Video inspections are welcome. Highlights: - magnificently presented late model 911 Carrera 3.2 with the desirable G50 gearbox - highly optioned car with factory sunroof. - finished in a stunning colour combination. - low mileage, with only 101,077 miles on the odometer. - known history from new - books (including a fully stamped service book), tools and jack - just a magnificent motor car Price: $194,950

The Maserati story is a fascinating one. It is the story of a family with daring, courageous and forward thinking ideas. The story starts with Rodolfo Maserati, a railway engineer who was employed by the Italian monarchy and the father of seven sons who all had a passion for engine design and racing cars. The Maserati brothers all became involved in the automotive industry in some way or another, however, it was on the 1st of December 1914 that Alfieri, Ettore and Ernesto Maserati officially opened Alfieri Maserati Workshop in Bologna, Italy. Maserati chose the trident logo to adorn its cars. Its design was based on the Fountain of Neptune in Bolognas Piazza Maggiore. The colours chosen for the logo were also the colours of Bologna, red and blue. The business was focused on repairing, servicing and preparing cars, however, the world war cut business short and it wasnt until 1926 that Maserati built its first car, the Tipo 26. It was all about motorsport back then and in 1937 the Orsi family acquired ownership of Maserati which was in desperate need of financial backing to be able to survive. During the Orsi years Maserati grew from a boutique but very successful race car builder to one of the worlds leading manufacturers of hand built sports and GT cars. Orsi sold to Citroen in 1969 and subsequent owners of Maserati included the Italian State, De Tomaso, Fiat, Ferrari and Fiat Chrysler. Maserati built its first road car in 1946 even though times were tough in post War northern Italy. The car was the Maserati A6 where A was for Alfieri and 6 for the number of cylinders. The initial reception of the car was positive and a production Maserati A6/1500 was then shown at the 1947 Geneva Motor Show. This was a significant milestone in the Maserati legend and subsequent models included the A6G/2000, 3500 series cars, 5000GT, Mistral. Quattroporte, Mexico, Sebring and Ghibli. Maserati also continued to build very successful race cars that dominated tracks around the world including the 250F, 300S, 150S, 450S and the Birdcage. Maserati built some fabulous cars during Citroens ownership (including the Indy, Bora, Merak and Khamsin), however, times were tough and the company struggled financially. Citroen placed Maserati into liquidation in May 1975 and it was ultimately saved by the Italian government and Alejandro de Tomaso took control shortly thereafter. Under de Tomasos reign, Maserati quickly de-Citroenised their cars and introduced the Kyalami (in 1976) and Quattroporte III (in 1979) which shared many components with the De Tomaso Longchamp and Deauville respectively. One of de Tomasos key strategies was to introduce a new model that leveraged the Maserati brand but was more affordable and built in far greater numbers than all previous Maserati models. In December 1981 the Maserati Biturbo was introduced. Initially as a two door, 2+2 coupe and later, in 1983 as a saloon. The convertible, designed by Zagato, was introduced in 1984. The car was in many ways similar to BMWs 3 series cars of that era. As the name implies, the Biturbo was powered by twin turbocharged, V6 engine of 1996cc capacity. Whilst one could argue that the Biturbos styling was not particularly exciting, the car's two greatest assets were the luxurious interior and high performance. The Maserati Biturbo was well received from day one and it went on to become the most widely produced car in Maserati history. Engine size evolved from the initial 1996cc to 2491cc and ultimately 2790cc. In total 37,000 cars were built, from 1981 through until 1993. This included 3,076 Spyders, which was a productionrecord for open topped Maseratis. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1988 Maserati Biturbo Spyder. This car is 1 of only 122 Biturbo Spyder i 2500s built (powered by a 2491cc fuel injected version of the Biturbo engine). This Maserati Biturbo Spyder, with an automatic gearbox, was sold new in Australia on 18th July 1988, through Maserati Australia in Sydney. The service book shows the first owner was a company by the name of Marinic Industries. The car received a 10,000 km service on the 27th of August 1990 and the mileage at that time was noted as 9,879 km. Given the limited mileage travelled during its first few years, it is most likely that the car was used for weekend trips only early in its life. In June 1996 the second owner purchased the car through Maserati Australia in Sydney. The exact mileage at the time of purchase is not known, but the next service registered in the service book notes the mileage as 38,585 km on 13th August 1997. The car changed hands again in c2005. At that time the mileage was 47,000 km. The car was retained by its enthusiastic owner for the next 12 years and it continued to be used sparingly, averaging around 1,000 km per year. In 2017 the car was sold to a collector on the Gold Coast, joining an eclectic collection of cars. The car was stored and not driven and in May 2018 its then owner decided to change direction with his collection and the car was sold to its current Brisbane based owner. The car was immediately sent to Maserati specialists Automotion in Enoggera for a major service. At that time almost $ 10,000 was spent on the car. The brakes were reconditioned, the leaking steering rack was repaired, a new radiator was installed, the air conditioning system was repaired & re-gassed along with other miscellaneous work. At that time the mileage was noted as 61,424 km. Over the last three and a bit years the car has travelled almost 2,000 km and today the odometer reads 63,318 km. Today this car presents exceptionally well. From the exterior it is hard to believe that it is almost 35 years old! The paintwork, which is most likely original, is in exceptional condition with a very high gloss finish and a strong depth of colour. All of the external trim, including the bumpers, the lights/lenses, the fog lights with Cibie covers, the wonderful front grill and Maserati trident badge are all in very good condition. The delicate slotted alloy wheels are also in good condition with no kerb rash. The wheels are shod with relatively new Michelin Energy XM2 195/60R14 tyres (date stamped 47/17) all around. The soft top looks to be original and it fits exceptionally well. Whilst it is generally in good condition it does have a split on either side of the rear window. The rear tonneau cover which clips over the soft top when lowered is present and in good condition. Inside the cabin is indeed luxurious. The seats are incredibly plush and incredibly comfortable. The driving position is very good, though the offset pedals do take a little time to get used to. The interior of this Maserati Biturbo Spyder is in very good condition for an original car of this age. The top of the instrument binnacle has been repaired and there is some light patina evident in the leather and some of the timberwork, but there is nothing that really detracts from its overall presentation. The instruments & controls are crisp and clean, the steering wheel is in very good condition and everything looks to be in working order, except for the clock. The air conditioning blows cold air and even the heater works! The car starts easily at the turn of the key and it initially idles at about 2,500 rpm as the car goes through its start up ritual. After a relatively short period of time as everything warms up, the idle speed drops back. So once buckled up you select D and off you go. So whats this car like to drive? It is great fun and a real blast! This car is a typical 1980s turbo and pushed hard the turbine-like rush of power is intoxicating. Driven sedately the car is easy to drive and comfortable, particularly on the motorway and smooth roads. On a bumpy surface the car is prone to some scuttle shake, which is a characteristic of this model. Overall this car drives really well. The engine has loads of power on tap and it pulls strongly through the rev range. The automatic gearbox changes up and down smoothly, the brakes work well and the car steers directly, though we should point out the turning circle is terrible which is another foible of the Maserati Biturbo. Under the bonnet everything is very original and the condition is totally consistent with a car thats travelled a tick over 63,000 km. The boot looks to be have been sparingly used and is in excellent condition. The build quality of the Maserati Biturbos was never great and as a result many of these cars have suffered and many have had hard lives. Finding one in this condition is difficult. The Maserati Biturbo Spyders have taken off in Europe as reflected by their prices. In Australia they are still somewhat of a sleeper and quite frankly they offer a huge amount of car for the money. With unique Zagato styling, a powerful twin turbocharged V6 engine up front, a luxurious interior and of course the Maserati trident on the bonnet, these cars have to be one of the best value classic cars available today. Highlights: Australian delivered, factory right hand drive example. known ownership from new, with only 5 owners. books, including the original service book in the Maserati leather pouch, tools and jack (unused). low mileage, with only 63,318 km on the odometer. an incredibly original car, just a real time capsule. Price $39,950.
