1. 2009 Porsche GT3 Cup For Sale

What could possibly go wrong with a decade old Porsche race car that has been driven hard its entire life? This one was recently given a thorough going-through with an engine, transmission, and suspension rehash just two operating hours ago. The great thing about a 997 GT3 Cup is that it is old enough to be not quite so expensive, and new enough that there are plenty of shops willing to work on it and set it up for you.

2. 1988 Porsche 928 S4 Track Car For Sale

You wouldn’t normally think of a 928 as being a good track car, but this one is completely set up for racing or track days with a nice solid roll cage built in. The limited slip differential and 5-speed manual make this a great starting point, and once you pull out a lot of the things that make a 928 exceedingly heavy, it might have the potential to perform pretty well on course. If for no other reason than it has a nice rowdy V8 under the hood.

3. 1997 Porsche 911 3.8 RSR For Sale

Back in the days of 993, the RSR was a track king. These days it’s a collector special, but it would be an absolute boss move to show up to your next HPDE event with a twenty-plus year old superstar. The last of the naturally-aspirated aircooled race car monsters, this RSR deserves to be set free on a race track once again. Be the hero to let it roam.

4. 2006 Porsche Cayman Track Car For Sale

For my money, a 987 Cayman that has received some moderate track preparation is the best place to start if you are addicted to Porsche and track time. For one thing, this car is among the most forgiving and capable chassis Porsche has ever built. It’s compliant and quick, and will instantly instill confidence. It rewards consistency, but won’t punish mistakes the same way the 993 above would. For another thing, spares are inexpensive and easy to come by.

5. 2011 Porsche Cayman Race Car For Sale

And if a Cayman track car is good, then a Cayman race car is even better. Prepared for the GX class at the 24 hours of Daytona, this Cayman features a 3.8-liter engine from an X51 Carrera GTS 997, producing a whopping 405 horsepower. The seller claims more than a quarter million was spent preparing this car, and based on the parts list I believe it. It placed second on the podium in the 2013 Daytona 24, and would serve you quite well at almost any race track. Go chase GT3s with this high powered Cayman.

Origin of the Species: Type 64 Goes to Auction in August

The Type 64 was many things, but it was not conventionally beautiful. Designed to make the most of a tuned, 32-horsepower variant of the Volkswagen Type I flat-four, the all-aluminum car was a masterpiece of 1930s aerodynamics. The riveted construction was strong and rigid for the day, and emulated the construction techniques used on then-current German aircraft like the Bf 109 and Fw 200.

This particular car, the third built, was actually completed in 1940 using the remains of the wrecked first car. Ferry Porsche and his family used the car routinely for several years, and the car received its first restoration in 1947 at the hands of a young Pinin Farina. Yes, this car was first restored a year before 356/001 saw the light of day. Perhaps most importantly, it is allegedly the first car to ever carry the Porsche insignia on the front.

During the premier of  the first 356, the Type 64 was demonstrated by Austrian driver Otto Mathé, who was smitten by the car and owned it through his death in 1995. From 1940 through 1995, the little Type 64 had just two owners, each a legend in their own right. From 1997 through the present day the car has belonged to Doctor Thomas Gruber of Vienna, who has shown the car at vintage events periodically throughout his ownership.

While owners love to toss around words like « numbers matching, » making such claims about the Type 64 is more challenging than average. The hopeful Type 64 owner will not be able to reference a Kardex, but will have to rely on experts. Per Andy Prill, a marque specialist who recently inspected the car, « I have found evidence that all of the key components were manufactured in 1939/40, » which by itself is special. How many sports cars were completed in that part of the world during the opening phases of the Second World War?

Though its origins were shrouded by war, and muddled slightly by being built for a race that never actually happened, the Type 64 remains one of (if not the) most significant Porsches of all time. When the Type 64 crosses the auction block in August with RM Sothebys, the result is virtually guaranteed to be tremendous. What the Type 64 lacks in pace it more than makes up for in pure provenance.
