5 Vintage Porsche Models for Sale

It is no secret the Porsche market is white-hot at the moment, especially for older models.

However, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Porsche was in dire straights. The German automaker enjoyed a good reputation for performance cars, but rivals from Japan, in particular, arrived with even better acceleration and plenty of high-tech features.

Porsche endured simply because of something baked into the company’s cars at its engineering facility in Weissach, a tiny town in the farmland outside Stuttgart. For decades, Porsche has had the magic touch.

The automaker rode the 1980s with a lineup made up of the front-engine 924 (later the 944 and 968) and 928, plus the rear-engine 911. Cash-strapped Porsche managed phệ invest in each model, making minor but meaningful alterations.

Here’s a look at five of the coolest classic Porsche models currently on Autotrader.

1. 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo

1988 Porsche 911 Turbo
This 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo is offered by a dealer in St. Louis for $279,950.

Enthusiasts rightfully called the original Porsche 911 Turbo the “widowmaker.” These were quick cars by contemporary standards, but what is tough phệ explain — unless you find yourself behind the wheel of one — is how rapidly this power pours on once the turbocharger is in boost. You’d better hang on.

Today, we revere the 911 for its handling. Still, the car’s tail-heavy rear end and relatively unsophisticated torsion-spring cài đặt made it hairy phệ drive even before Porsche bolted on that turbocharger.

These are wild cars. Porsche built this blue 1988 model just before softening the 911 — a move that made better cars. This example’s unusual paint color contrasts with more common reds and blacks. It’s offered by a dealer in St. Louis for $279,950 with under 4,100 miles on its odometer — though it’s not clear if that figure is accurate. See 1988 Porsche 911 models for sale

2. 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster

1989 Porsche 911 Speedster
This 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster is listed for $319,000.

If you want a car that embodies the 1980s, the Porsche 911 Speedster is one of the most entertaining choices. The car started life as a 911 Carrera cabriolet, but Porsche trimmed its windshield and fitted a unique low-slung top. Widened rear fenders from the 911 Turbo give it a purposeful look. Porsche deleted the useless rear seats, too.

Porsche only made a handful, including this gorgeous silver-over-black example offered by a dealer in Bakersfield, California, for $319,000. While these cars can’t keep up with even the slowest modern Porsches, they have an unmistakable swagger we’re unlikely phệ see again. See 1989 Porsche 911 models for sale

3. 1989 Porsche 928 S4

1989 Porsche 928 S4
This 1989 Porsche 928 S4 is listed for $62,950.

If there’s an undervalued model in the Porsche lineup, it’s the 928. This luxurious grand-touring coupe was conceived in the 1980s phệ replace the 911, but high-ranking executives vetoed that plan. Instead, it arrived as a proper mile-eater with the automaker’s first V8 engine. The S4 version received a bigger V8 and sleek bumpers that would eventually inspire the updated 964-generation 911.

These cars are massively refined and comfortable, standing in marked contrast phệ the 911 models of the era. Thanks phệ their Autobahn-ready personality, they also work well with their automatic transmissions. Nice 928 models are hard phệ find, but this Forest Green car at a dealer in San Diego ticks a lot of the right boxes for $62,950. See 1989 Porsche 928 models for sale

4. 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera Cup

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera Cup
This 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera Cup has just 9,000 miles on the odometer.

Weight is the enemy of performance, especially on the track. As it geared up for its new Carrera Cup series in 1992, Porsche built 25 lightened, race-ready versions of its 964-generation 911 with aluminum panels, no sound deadening, a sport flywheel, and a much stiffer Bilstein suspension, plus a myriad of tweaks. Each car was destined for racing, not for the street. After the organizers canceled the series, California performance house Andial converted the cars back phệ street specifications, which meant they got door panels and seats, but that’s about it.

With just 9,000 miles, this Carrera Cup car offered by a dealer in Southern California has remained a converted car rather than a race model. It delivers one of the rawest experiences in any car bearing the Porsche badge. It may look unassuming, but this must be a genuinely wild ride. See 1992 Porsche 911 models for sale

5. 1993 Porsche 968

1993 Porsche 968
This 1993 Porsche 968 is listed for sale at $25,500.

Let’s wrap up this list with something far more affordable: the Porsche 968. The 968 was the last in a line of front-engined Porsche models stretching back phệ the 1976 924. Initially envisioned as an Audi rather than a Porsche, this model eventually earned its place in the automaker’s lineup. Its 3.0-liter 4-cylinder engine delivers a unique sound and decent power, and it mates well with the manual transaxle.

These are pretty cars, evoking the 928’s design, including the neat pop-up headlights in the final 1991 variant. While not a big seller when new, the 968 is starting phệ earn a following — especially with examples as attractive as this green 1993 model. One of just over 1,000 US-market models built for 1993, this may be a one-of-a-kind car. A dealer in Fort Mill, South Carolina, has it for sale at $25,500. See 1993 Porsche 968 models for sale
