2002 Porsche 911 Turbo

Too many 911 Turbos come in Black or Silver. That’s no fun. We see Guards Red too, though by the time we’ve reached the 996 even red has become a much more fleeting alternative. So I always like coming across those in other colors. Speed Yellow is probably not even that uncommon, but it provides plenty of brightness to help attract attention with all of that horsepower. Granted, nothing will top the Signal Green Turbo S we featured last year, but bright yellow does a good enough job and it’s for sale for half the price of green. Not too bad!

I’ve kind of been going back and forth lately with my 996TT features with some of them being very low mileage and testing the potential collector market – while also stretching our sense of their performance value – and others coming in at much more reasonable prices as the miles go up. Most of those higher priced examples also had the X50 performance package as really it is only those cars that are likely to elicit much interest from collectors. This one slots in between those various others, though given that it does not have the X50 package that puts it on the higher end of the standard Turbo. Still at under $50K – just under! – the performance value is still pretty good. The premium asked here comes because of the fairly low mileage and the less common color, as we’d expect. As usual, there will be plenty of questions to be asked, but a PPI and service records should address most concerns. If everything comes through in good shape, then a new owner should be getting into a really nice Turbo.

  1. Nice, specimen. I think there probably should be some delineation between dealer pricing and private party pricing. I would consider this a bit over priced, but others might take some comfort in buying through a dealer. Since I live far away from where most of these live, the car would soon be thousands of miles away and an implied warrantee almost useless.
    All of my vehicle purchases over the last 30 years have been direct private party transactions. Assuming this dealer acquired the vehicle that way I’m guessing he paid going market of 40 or less, via auction maybe less still.

  2. Very, very pretty car. Very desirable. The yellow one standard 996 could easily be overstatement. Not on the TT. I think it’s a terrific bargain even without the X50 option. Then again I think the 3.6 liter 996’s are a bargain in general. The TT has extra hunky styling. I think that will appeal the same way the widebody look does with the 993. Good choice!

  3. Is GCFSB monitoring my browser? LOL. Cars that catch my eye frequently seem to make their way here shortly thereafter.

    This 996TT looks pretty good. The yellow works on this shape, and the black guys help to mask that crummy interior. The Ask isn’t out of the ballpark, either.

    Oh, and the Signal Green 996TTS has made it’s way into the hands of a flipper… current ask… $229K

  4. Strange that they mention a short throw shifter but not PCCBs ? Unless it’s just yellow painted rotors aftermarket.
