Citron Coupes: 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera & 1996 Porsche Carrera 4S

Yellow is a color more akin to some Italian exotics, but occasionally you’ll come across some of Stuttgart’s finest in this eye-popping hue. Porsche produced a number of different yellows over the years, and here are two air-cooled examples slathed in this bright shade. First up is a 1987 911 Coupe in Summer Yellow for sale in Florida.

This is the kind of 911 I’d like to find. The 3.2 is my favorite of the air-cooled models and one with this kind of mileage strikes a good balance between museum piece and well-worn driver. The interior color is a curious matchup with the Summer Yellow. Frankly, black would have worked better, but this certainly has to be one of the few in this color combination. The 3.2 Coupe is averaging around the $30,000 mark these days for a car with this kind of mileage, but given the color and condition, it won’t be surprising if it brings a bit more than that on a no reserve auction.

Up next we have a slightly more modern 911, a 1996 911 Carrera 4S for sale in Missouri. The seller has one too many Porsches and after procuring a Speedster, it’s time to let the 993 go.

Price: Reserve auction

Original paint! Absolutely breathtaking Carrera 4s. For the true Porsche collector. Specially ordered to sample Ferrari Fly Yellow, the color will take your breath away. Supple Black leather, clear bra. Spectacular. I am reluctantly selling this one of a kind Porsche, I just purchased a Speedster and have a 993 Turbo as well so one must go. It still has the new car smell. For those of you in the Porsche world, I purchased this fabulous car from Road Scholars, the internationally renowned Porsche restorer/dealer. You know the kind of unique and special Porsches they deal in. Equipped with motor sound package, sun roof, factory CD, gorgeous factory Turbo Twist wheels (no road rash), leather dash and arm rests. I have meticulously maintained this car and never driven in the rain.

I had a Pre-Purchase inspection done June 30th at Parktown Porsche Audi to give buyers confidence and do the due diligence up front. See copy of report below as well as Certificate of Authenticity. Paint to sample, MSRP $84,225. Fabulous pedigree with books and records. The Carrera 2s, 4s and Turbo’s are literally increasing in value daily. This is a great investment and an opportunity to still purchase a 4S under $100,000. Please call Ellis 314-570-7379 for any questions.

The 993s is the penultimate air-cooled 911 and values certainly have reflected this fact. It’s getting to be hard to find a good Carrera for under $40,000 these days and if it’s a Turbo you seek, come with deep pockets, as these cars are fetching in the six figures.

  1. KevinR says:

    The ad for the ’87 displays another of my pet peeves. The seller lists the mileage as 71,xxx miles and then in the copy points out the real mileage on the car is “in excess of 150K.” How much in excess?

    Why did you list only the mileage since the rebuild? The whole car is for sale, not just the engine so the mileage on the whole car is pretty darn important.

  2. John says:

    There are some interesting Porsche colors out there. Another neat thing is paint to sample. Although this one is sold it’s a pretty yellow example: http://sloancars.com/340/1989-930-paint-to-sample-ferrari-fly-yellow-62036-miles/ However, venetian blue is still my favorite on a vintage porsche.

  3. Vic says:

    I think Summer Yellow is a “one year color” because it was previously named Lemon Yellow and the name was changed for obvious reasons.

  4. Dallas says:

    Love the Summer Yellow but that interior is retch-inducing. Agree with KevinR – mileage disclosure is misleading but I guess that’s OK because it’s “mileage exempt here in Florida”. Whatever…

Got something to say? Go for it!
