2005 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet

I imagine at some point people will wake up to the enormous performance value of the 996TT, but it seems we are not there yet. From its inception, the 911 Turbo always has been a diabolical car, difficult in its dynamics and threatening to send inattentive drivers into snap oversteer. As time wore on and the power produced from the 911’s turbocharged flat-six increased Porsche introduced twin-turbochargers, which helped reduce lag, and fitted the Turbo with an all-wheel drive system to help deliver power in a more controlled manner. Still, there remained sufficient power to overwhelm some and excite many. With more than 400 hp the 996 Turbo continued along the trajectory established by its predecessors, but now, because of its water-cooled engine and redesigned body, the love from many enthusiasts has been held at bay, leaving us with a performance bargain. The example seen here is a Black 2005 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, located in Georgia, with only 15,345 miles on it. The Turbo S was available only in 2005 as basically a 996 Turbo fitted with the X50 Power Package and ceramic brakes. For a performance value these are near impossible to beat.

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Flatnose

Upon initial release of the 964 Turbo, Porsche had yet to fully develop a turbocharged version of the 964’s standard 3.6 liter flat-six and thus chose to retain the 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-six from the 930. By 1993, however, a turbocharged 3.6 liter flat-six was ready. With 360 hp being delivered to the rear wheels, these cars provided effortless acceleration and spine-tingling excitement packaged in a neat and beautiful design. But what if some buyers might want a little bit more? Enter the 3.6 Turbo S: a 385 hp rear-wheel-drive monster and one of the most sought after 911s in Porsche’s storied history. Less than 100 examples of the 3.6 Turbo S were produced through the Porsche Exclusive program and buyers had the choice of the standard wide-body Turbo design or they could choose a 968-derived Flatnose. The Slantnose was a popular option on the 930 throughout much of the ’80s and we come across them fairly frequently. The 3.6 Turbo S is another beast entirely. Few exist and they rarely come up for sale, but here we have one. A stunning Guards Red 1994 Porsche 911 3.6 Turbo S Flatnose with Champagne leather interior, located in Cleveland, that has seen a very reasonable 36,300 miles.
