Originally, we were just calmly checking out a 1996 993 Carrera RS Clubsport.
Suddenly, we were trawling TradeUniqueCars.com.au for all sorts of madness. So, as usual, welcome to another Classifieds of the week!
1996 Porsche 993 Carrera RS Clubsport - $749,990
The car that kicked this week’s searching off, and one we’d very much like to own.
Sure, $750K is a lot of money, but when was the last time you saw one of these?
It’s rocking 51,200km, is magnificent in Guards Red, and its condition can only be described as immaculate inside and out.
1987 BMW E30 325ix - $59,990
A rare beast indeed, the seller says this 325ix is only one of three known (to them, anyway) right hand drive examples.
What’s an ‘ix,’ you ask? Well, it’s the E30 version of xDrive, BMW’s badge for AWD cars. There aren’t many, and they’ve developed a cult following.
Even if this isn’t a genuine one (check the papers if you want to buy it!), it’s still an AWD E30 rally car!

And if it’s not even a replica, we wouldn’t say no to a RWD E30 rally car. Though at that point we’d be looking at a much lower price than $60K.
2017 Ford Mustang Roush RS3 - $125,000
The 542kW Roush Supercharged Mustang (thus the RS – sorry, Audi), which we’ve driven an example of, is an absolute belter.
It can be driven calmly in daily traffic too though, and only turns into a monster when you want it to. Or if you’re not in control of your right foot.
Mustang Motorsport is selling this example, it has converted for Australia under license from Roush, for $125K.
1980 Mazda RX-7 Series 1 - $32,000
Okay, we’re flying a little blind here – the seller has left only “Mazda RX7 1980” in the comments of their ad.
Classic MOTOR: 40 years of Mazda rotary in Oz
Luckily, they filled out a few other details when it was created, but we’re not sure this car really only has 4200km on the odo.
Still, it looks tidy, and seems to have had plenty of work done to it. P-L-E-N-T-Y. The ad says it’s roadworthy, too. And for $32,000, you’d hope so.
1998 HSV VT Clubsport - $16,000
Sure, it’s no Carrera RS Clubsport, but this one’s got a 5.0-litre V8.
It’s a super-tidy-looking example that is, honestly, reasonably-priced at $16,000, and we reckon it’d be worth a look if you were after something to enjoy on highway cruises (yeah, it’s an auto).
It’s roadworthy, has 127,000 on the odo, and the sunvisor is even signed by Mark Skaife!
