It should be celebrated as one of the greatest GT coupes of all time. It could be held up as the blueprint for a modern GT coupe. Instead, it is sometimes brushed off, even by some marque loyalists, as the product of brand misdirection. It is the 1978-1995 Porsche 928
We all have memories of our first car. For most of us they’re pleasant ones, reminders of not only our first taste of real independent mobility, but for enthusiasts also the moment when we could turn our childhood passion into actual practice.
With a reputation for being a badge-engineered Rolls-Royce, one might wonder how the name Bentley has managed to stick around for almost a century. The Speed Six is the answer. Introduced in 1928, it continued the marque’s domination of the 24 hours of Le Mans and further defined Bentleys as innovative and enduring.
Car collectors may remember the year 2013 for two of the highest auction prices ever paid for automobiles. Among such breathtaking figures, the $1.16-million sale of another 1967 sports car might have gone unnoticed, except for one thing: it was the highest amount ever paid for a Japanese car, a 1967 Toyota 2000 GT.
A quarter century has passed since the 328 models went out of production, and they’ve finally caught the eye of collectors, as evidenced by a doubling in value over the last five years. With that kind of upward trend, leasing a 328 GTB or GTS through the Premier Financial Services Simple Lease is a smarter strategy than ever.
Maybe there are some “Spinal Tap” fans at Porsche, because they took the 911 GT3, already the closest thing to a racecar in the 911 fleet, and pushed this road/track model to 11 to create the Porsche GT3 RS. RS, in Porsche-speak, is rennsport (racing). If you’re not yet a member of a track, the 911 GT3 RS is the car that may compel you to join.
Lime Rock’s Historic Festival 33 features two concurrent events in one wonderful venue: The Sunday in the Park Concours d’Elegance and The Gathering of the Marques. No other event in the U.S. combines a first-class concours with a quality vintage gathering, all on the same property.
It is fair to say that Barrett-Jackson is an incubator for future car collectors. They begin by watching the show on television, and at some point, they attend as a spectator. If the event resonates with them, they register to bid. Then they begin to buy and sell cars.
