While many new car dealerships would rather not have convertibles in their inventories going into Winter, much less vintage and classic cars…  at Sears Imports, we cater to all sorts of motoring tastes and we know a great car when we see one. So, we purchased this car from our dealer friend in Chicago and had it shipped here to Minneapolis. It just arrived today.

I am still learning about the history of the car, I need to speak with our GM, the gentleman who purchased the car, to get all the details, but looking at the Carfax it looks like the car was originally sold to Oklahoma by a Texas Porsche dealer, more recently it looks like it resided in Lake Geneva, WI… a Summer getaway for the well to do from Chicago. I will post more history when I learn more about the car.

The interior and exterior are in excellent condition, there are no dash cracks (so common on these older 911s if not garage kept), the leather seats are in excellent condition, carpet is very clean and unsoiled, no weird smells on the interior. The top is in excellent condition, the back window is generally clear with some light scuffing, but overall, very nice. The top boot is present with the car as well as the car’s tool kit and original owner’s manual.

Based on the stellar, original condition and low miles of this classic 911, the price is $26,900. Sears Imports Stock#20113, call me for more details.

1991 BMW M5 with Manual Transmission Just Traded In, Super Rare, Bahn-storming Sleeper

1991-BMW-M5

UPDATE! Car is SOLD – SOLD – SOLD as of about 7:55pm on Thursday 8/11!  This is an extremely rare 1991 BMW M5 , just traded in here at Sears Imports. I don’t even remember the last time I saw one of these, they are much rarer than the newest M5s are, back in the late 1980s and early 90s 3 series and 5 series M cars were very rare indeed. My jaw hit the ground when this one showed up here.

Notable items on this car include the 5 speed manual transmission and the special M wheels with integrated cooling ducts for the brakes.. so, when you’re driving, the ducts on the wheels scoop air and route it towards the brakes.

Tom Cruise Risky Business Porsche

Joel (Cruise) and friends drive through downtown Highland Park in his dad's 928.

The 928 became famous on a pop culture level after its appearance in the John Hughes film “Risky Business” starring Tom Cruise as ‘Joel Goodsen’ who takes his dad’s 928 out cruising through the North suburbs of Chicago with a friend a couple of ‘working girls’. The car eventually ends up in Lake Michigan and once it’s pulled out of the lake and towed to the Porsche dealership one of the great lines of the movie is delivered by a dealership employee as the driver’s door is opened and water and fish come pouring out… “Who’s the U boat commander?”

Posche 928 Sears Imports

Joel (Cruise) trys to stop the 928 from rolling into Lake Michigan.

The 928 was Porsche’s attempt at a 911 replacement in the late 1970s. As it turned out, Porschephiles never accepted this front engined 32 valve V8 super car as a replacement for their beloved rear engined flat six based 911, but it does enjoy a loyal following today and represents an excellent value in the ‘young classic’ Porsche market today. The Sears Imports 928 pictured here is in top condition and represents a great value priced at just $14,900. Skip the 928s you see for sale in the $8,000 – $10,000 range, there a few things more expensive than a ‘cheap’ Porsche 928.

It’s worth paying up for a well maintained, low mile example such as this. Please give me a call if you’d like to set up an appointment for a showing and test drive.
