911 Weissach Edition FAQ


Dylan P. has sent me the following shots of his 1981 924 Weissach Edition with 106k miles. It is garage-kept except on the weekends. He's completely rebuilt the motor and transmission and it runs like a champ. He's about to have her repainted due to some minor dings, and is waiting on a certificate of authenticity to come in the mail from Porsche. Thanks for the addition to the Weissach collection, Dylan!

Kurt Fischer (the photographer) said he met Bruce Anderson there!
Kurt is putting together a Weissach registry, all Weissach owners, 924, 928, and any other models are welcome to contact him via e-mail at truk50@ix.netcom.com...

I paid far too much on Yahoo Auctions for a copy of this 924 Weissach ad924 Weissach Edition advertisement... If I could have just bid on the entire magazine, it would have seemed a better deal, but now I can't even tell which issue of which magazine it came from - anybody know when the Weissach 924 came out?

Just discovered! Information on a Weissach 928 model!

Weissach 928

Here's some info on what the 928 version's options are purported to be:

  • all of the cars were the "champagne gold" color (sorry, no reference material to provide you with the correct name/paint code for this)
  • the cars came with 16"x7" forged slot wheels that were anodized in a "gold-tone" finish
  • probably the most unique thing about the Weissach cars was that a color-coordinated LUGGAGE SET was available for these cars!
Thanks to 'Brad' from the Rennlist for this info!

1980 911SC Weissach Coupe
Dennis Adler
pp.38-41
Cover photo plus general exterior/interior photos. Car displayed has polished wheels without painted spokes and carpeting matching the Doric Grey interior - so much for originality. This was apparently due to fire damage, and replacements had not been located at that time. Mention is made that the carpeting is no longer available from Porsche. Headlight washers not depicted nor mentioned either. Classified as 'boulevardiers' and a 'marketing ploy', though performance options are credited.

Tech Notes
1980 911 SC Weissach Edition?
Mentions M439 option code, other specs as above. Plus, the following valuation:
"Today, a good 911 SC Weissach Edition shouldbe worth a low of $17,800 and a high of $27,100.An excellent example with low mileage and superb original paint may be worth quite a bit more."

Porsche The Pursuit of Excellence
New York: Crescent Books,1993

This is basically another coffee-table book, with some nice pictures inside. It was given to me as a gift by my girlfriend's mother, who did not realize the car on the cover was a metallic black Weissach just like mine, though with Euro headlights. The same car is shown on pages 62 through 65, though no mention is made of its special edition status. The car has Indiana plates.

Wright, Nicky
Porsche The Enduring Legend
New York: Gallery Books,1990

Another coffee-table book, though with more text than the previous item. The same car is included, in the same poses, with a couple extra shots. Here, however, it is referenced as a Weissach Edition in the captions, and a short description is given. Original price is listed as $32,000. Photos and descriptive text are on pages 11 and 96-101.
