Chassis no. 91A0132539; Engine no. 6302356. Petroleum Blue over brown vinyl and brown Pasha cloth. 2994cc flat-six/180hp, 5-speed, black Fuchs wheels, Pirelli P6000 tires, Becker Traffic Pro radio.

Evaluation: Delivered new in Switzerland. Rare color and wild Pasha interior, both of which are original. Showing 108,271 km on the clock and well-kept. The paint looks excellent for the age, although the exterior plastic and wheels are a little dull. The interior looks great other than age on the steering wheel and ventilation switchgear. The weather stripping around the roof is heavily worn and has ancient-looking black tape stuck on in a couple of places. Tidy but used engine, reportedly serviced recently. It’s just an SC and it’s definitely used, but in terms of color combination this is probably the wildest-looking Porsche here, and there are a ton of Porsches here.

Bottom Line: Thirteen classic 911s, actually, plus a few more modern Porsches and a few older 356s. That was plenty to bring out the Porsche contingent to Quail Lodge, and although this car was ambitiously estimated it brought a big price despite the wear and tear. The trippy Pasha interior – offered on the 924, 928 and 911 for a few brief years – counts for a lot, but the seller should still be thrilled.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
