1973 BMW 2002 Tii Sold

Update, January 23, 2015: The 2002 Tii sold to a great collector and longtime Sports Car Digest reader. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have! With the 2002 ‘Neue Klasse’ models, BMW pulled itself out of financial troubles and established its identity as a performance-oriented manufacturer of automobiles for enthusiasts, while also creating the sports sedan segment so prevalent today. Another factor that makes the 2002 so important is its … [Read more...]

Featured Listing – 1959 Porsche 356A Cabriolet

1959 Porsche 356A Cabriolet

Update, November 17, 2014: The 356A Cabriolet has been sold. Hope you enjoy it! Collectors are obsessive about the first and the last of any generational piece, and nowhere is this practice more prevalent than in the vintage car world. With any evolutionary piece, the creators and manufacturers worked out weaknesses over time, sometimes at the expense of the diluting the original recipe, purists will have you believe. In the case of Porsche’s … [Read more...]

Featured Listing – 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo Targa

1989 Porsche 911 Turbo Targa Sold

Update, September 8, 2014: The 930 sold to a wonderful enthusiast and Sports Car Digest reader. Hope you enjoy it! The 1980s may be remembered for many things, including giant hair and spandex, but an automobile most representative of that era would have to be the sports car that almost everyone who cared anything about cars aspired to own -- the "whale tail" turbocharged Porsche 911. Known internally as the 930, the car was sold as the 911 … [Read more...]

Featured Listing – 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe

1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe Sold

The 1950s have rightly been called the golden age for the automobile on both sides of the Atlantic, a renaissance of styling and engineering after the years of warfare that diverted the talents of the car industry to military efforts. This was even true in Germany, a war-torn and geopolitically divided country that began a miraculously quick recovery in the postwar years, and it was out of this climate that Porsche came into its own as one of the … [Read more...]

Itty Bitty Bimmer – 1963 BMW 700 Coupe

1963 BMW 700 Coupe

We're usually talking about Volkswagens when the subject of small German rear-engined automobiles comes up, but from 1959 to 1965 BMW of all companies had one of their own called the 700. An economical but attractive little thing, it gave BMW a sales boost when their bank account needed it most, with almost 200,000 of them churned out before BMW stopped producing tiny cars once and for all. The replacement for the Isetta-derived 600, the 700 … [Read more...]

Paul Newman Porsche – 1969 Porsche 911S

paul newman race car

Back in April, the Paul Newman/Bill Freeman 911S that the pair raced at Sebring in 1977 failed to sell at Mecum's sale in Houston at a hammer bid of $325,000. Now, there's another chance at a Newman/Freeman 911S that is apparently still owned by Newman Freeman Racing. This one is significantly less desirable, but it's also significantly cheaper. Whereas the Houston car was driven by Newman at one of the more prestigious endurance road … [Read more...]

Incomplete Outlaw – 1957 Porsche 356A Coupe

project restoration

It's not exactly breaking news that a lot of classic car values have shot way up over the last few years, but this is especially true of 356 Porsches. You could buy a lightly used and fairly recent 911 for what some of the roughest 356s are going for. This project 1957 356A Coupe out of Braselton, Georgia is a good example. What is tempting about it, however, is that although it's currently apart, it's also a project that has been started and it … [Read more...]

DTM Dream – 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E Cosworth

sedan 2.3 cosworth 16 valve

Yes, the ultimate 1980s touring car veteran is probably the BMW e30 M3 with its alluring wide body, huge motorsports heritage, and gaggle of people who swear by it. But there is a neat alternative that, though rarer here in the States than the BMW, also isn't being inflated to collector car status. The Mercedes-Benz 190E Cosworth was only sold in the United States during the 1986 and 1987 model years, and started at around $35,000. Mercedes-Benz … [Read more...]

Featured Listing – 2009 BMW M3 Sedan

2009 BMW M3 Sedan

Update, June 11, 2014: The M3 Sedan sold to a BMW enthusiast and loyal Sports Car Digest reader. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have! It is time to wave goodbye to one member of the Sports Car Digest family and pass it onto its next caretaker. One of our favorite, modern offerings from the ever-changing BMW marque, the “M3” nameplate carries a legacy that has more than made an impression on enthusiasts during the past quarter of a century. … [Read more...]
