Winning a Porsche is the dream of most folks that don’t already own one. Even those that already have one of the German performance machines in their driveway are always happy to add another to their stable.

If you’ve ever wanted to get a free Porsche this could be your chance. The car being given away is a 986 generation Porsche Boxster that is claimed to have been driven by the Grand Tour’s (and formerly Top Gear) Richard Hammond. It is free to enter to win the roadster and we think this could be a genius idea.

When your automobile gets a dent in it you simply can’t wait to get it out. For decent sized dents on largely flat panels a common technique is to use a suction cup. Auto parts stores sell suction cup dent pullers made for the job. But what if you want to save some cash?

Sure you can go to the store and purchase one, but you may have something around the house that can do the job. For us that was a GoPro and we wanted to see if it would work to pull out the dent.

Summer is almost officially upon us and that means cars shows. Sure, there are plenty of Cars and Coffee events that you can see great cars, but the competition car shows are now well underway.

For us the car show season starts with the Cruisin’ Morro Bay Car Show. Of course if we were on the east coast Amelia Island is the show that starts things off, but that is all the way on the other side of the country. For us it starts in Morro Bay and all the car shows lead to the “grand daddy” of them all, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

In recent years values of all air-cooled 911s have steadily climbed. This rise in prices has put many classic 911s out of reach of most of us. Prices of unloved 911s make it possible to own the model that you think of when you think of Porsche for less than the cost of a new Honda Accord.

Currently, the 996 generation of the 911 is the unloved Porsche 911, but this has not always been the case.

Can You Still Find An Affordable Air-Cooled 911

By   April 20, 2018

The prices of air-cooled 911s have shot up in recent years. Just about five years ago you could still find a good Porsche 911 SC in the $15,000 – $20,000 range. Even a 911 Carrera 3.2 could be had for under $30,000 in good condition.

Now, if you want an affordable 911 the 996 is the one to look into. In every way, except maybe the headlights and if an IMS update hasn’t been done, the 996 is a better car than the earlier 911s. However, there is a soul in the air-cooled cars with their unique sound and analog driving experience.

That is exactly why the air-cooled cars are going up in value. But is it too late to get a 911 with an air-cooled flat-six?
