1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

I’m going to have a lot of questions about this 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo, but I’ll start with the one that struck me immediately and isn’t necessarily related to this particular Turbo. Are we now at a point where the 3.3-liter 964 Turbo is a $200K car? Assuming we’re not talking about some ultra-rare sub-5K mile example, of course. I’m really not sure we’re there yet, but this one seems set on trying to get us there. I will say, I have been seeing a lot more high prices among 964s in general so I’m beginning to wonder if that market is shifting upward for some reason. I have in many cases offered these Turbos as a relatively inexpensive alternative to the collector-sought 1989 930, but if prices are moving up then that idea may no longer work.

As for this one: it’s certainly a very good looking example and appears to be in very good condition. I think the exterior is Tahoe Blue Metallic, a relatively uncommon blue that Porsche offered in the early ’90s. We’ve seen it before, but not quite with this contrast in the interior. It’s certainly a rare example, but enough so to command this sort of price?

2008 Porsche 911 GT2

I’ve had my eye on the 911 GT2 a lot lately. Mostly that’s because we’re seeing the GT2 RS hit our shores. There are a lot of those for sale and you probably shouldn’t buy one. With very few exceptions, they’re all kind of the same too. As I was looking at those and their insane prices I came across this 2008 Porsche 911 GT2 with 18,511 miles on it and an asking price less than half what sellers are asking for the current GT2 RS. Don’t get me wrong – the GT2 RS is the better car. It has 700 hp, all kinds of crazy aero, a boatload of lightweight materials, and plenty of tech to help you get around a track as quickly as possible. It laps the Nürburgring around 45 seconds faster than the GT2 we see here. That is not an insignificant difference and the sort of thing we probably should expect with a full decade of continued development under its wings.

But I look at this GT2 and realize that it’s a much better looking car. It has a manual transmission. With 523 hp on tap it isn’t exactly suffering for power and with that power being channeled entirely to the rear wheels the driving experience surely will hold your attention and be plenty exhilarating. It’s a phenomenal car that very few are capable of fully exploiting and I wonder if maybe I’m spending too much time looking at the wrong thing.

Signal Green 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S

I’ve been looking for a 997.2 to post for a while. Though in truth I didn’t really find what I was looking for. I’ve had my eye out for a Turbo with a manual transmission, a search which has proved more difficult than I thought it’d be. But this, a Turbo S in Signal Green, certainly serves as a worthwhile substitute. Since the Turbo S wasn’t available with a manual transmission anyway, then I guess I can’t quibble over it possessing PDK.

530 hp delivered through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission in the most luxurious package Porsche can offer certainly will turn heads. When you drape that kind of machine in one of Porsche’s iconic colors, then now you have looks to go with that performance. This one isn’t entirely original and is said to be putting out an additional 90 hp over the already significant power it offered out of the box. It’s also said to be only 1 of 2 to exist.

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo

I think this 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo comes under the heading of “never judge a book by its cover” because while it’s a very lovely car from the outside it is really all about the interior. That’s the part of this one that will have appeal relative to all of the other 993TTs on the market. It’s quite clearly special order. I’ll also be quite upfront and state that I don’t like the way it has all come together. However, I’m very happy that it exists. It shows us the type of things that Porsche has made possible over the years for its more intrepid customers so even if it isn’t what I would do it might give you some ideas. I also think it’s only a couple minor tweaks from looking quite good. Let’s take a look:

Feature Listing: 1978 Porsche 930 with 25,453 miles

Let’s continue the theme from yesterday’s 928 Weissach and look at another older Porsche in fantastic original condition and with very few miles. As the seller describes, there are a couple of flaws with this one so I don’t know that we’d place it on the same plane of perfection as the 928, but it still looks incredibly good by any standard.

This is a paint-to-sample Sienna Brown Metallic 1978 Porsche 930, located in Arizona, with Cork leather interior, sport seats, and only 25,453 miles on it. We love the 930 around here as I’m sure everyone is aware. 1978 was the first year for the larger displacement 3.3 liter engine and intercooler so you’re getting 20 more horses compared with the earlier models along with larger 4-piston brakes to help rein everything in. But it’s obviously still very early in the 930’s production life so a ’78 is pretty raw and a few pounds lighter than the later examples. We’ve seen a few very low mileage and original examples cross our pages over the years and they’re always a treat to come across. They’re also very rare as most 930s from this period, quite understandably, have quite a few more miles and haven’t always been well cared for.

1989 Porsche 930 Slantnose Cabriolet

There are a couple things about this ad that make me chuckle, but the overall impression of this 1989 Porsche 930 Slantnose Cabriolet remains the same: it looks very good. With fewer than 6K miles on it this is one of the lowest (perhaps the lowest) mileage 930s I’ve seen and its condition looks the part. As the seller makes clear, these are very rare in general among all 930s, but that this is an ’89 makes it just that much more special. This is the only year you could get a 930 with the 5-speed manual transmission and the premium buyers have been willing to pay for that one-year-only transmission has been significant for quite a while. I don’t know if buyers will pay the steep premium this seller is seeking – this 930 has been up for sale for a few months now – but even if the price comes down some, I do not expect it to come down a lot. If you want a collector time capsule of one of these very unique Porsches, then this one requires a look.

2007 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe

I have no idea what the production numbers are, but I rarely see a Speed Yellow 997 let alone a Speed Yellow 997TT. Whether all of the owners simply refuse to sell or whether there weren’t many produced to begin with (and I suspect it is the latter), opportunities to get one of these brightly colored 997s do not come around often. If you’re a fan, it might be time to pounce.

This is a 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe, located in Miami, with that lovely Speed Yellow exterior and Cocoa leather interior. Cocoa is not an interior color we see all that often either, but it seems even more rare to pair it with an exterior color like Speed Yellow. It’s an atypical contrast and I think I’d have to see it in person to know if I’d like it. I suppose it isn’t too far from the much more traditional pairing of a black interior and that slight change in color might appeal to many. But really this is about the exterior. Yellow cars are very love hate. Count me in the group that loves them!

2003 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe X50

While it definitely appears the market for a good 996TT is rising that doesn’t mean all of them are becoming expensive. Such appears to be the case with this 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo equipped with the X50 performance package, the Turbo aero kit, and a set of hard-back sport seats. It has an asking price of $50K and that’s not too bad at all! Of course there is a reason the price seems more reasonable and that’s because at 87,549 it has a few more miles on it than we typically see on a Turbo. That’s still reasonable mileage for its age so if it’s been cared for and there aren’t any other lurking issues, then those miles may not represent too much of an issue.

1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

This one checks a lot of boxes. I won’t call it perfect and there’s certainly some questions, but the car itself as it presents here should prove quite desirable. Here we have a 1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera. I’m not 100% sure on the exact color since we aren’t told what it is, but I think it’s Signal Green. That’s a great start in and of itself since I love these early Turbos and that’s a great color for any Porsche. The interior is a fairly standard black interior, though it is fitted with sport seats. If you’re looking for one of Porsche’s very unique tartan or pascha interiors from this period, then this one won’t fit that bill, but a standard black interior isn’t bad either and everything looks in good shape. I should point out that this 930 has been fully restored; we aren’t looking at an entirely original example, but that restoration looks to have been of high quality. So while this isn’t one of those rare as-it-left-the-factory examples it still shows as an example that will transport you back to the days of its original production. We can only hope it’ll drive as good as it looks.

2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive

It shouldn’t take you long to recognize that this is a fairly limited production 911. It’s right there in its name, “Exclusive,” though you also could just look at the darn thing. A Golden Yellow Metallic Porsche isn’t exactly commonplace. Add in the Black center-locking wheels with Golden Yellow accents, loads of carbon trim, and Turbo Aerokit and you know you’re looking at something special. This is all before we even open the doors and step into the interior.

And, oh yeah, it has 607 horsepower. That’s 27 hp more than the already pretty high-powered 911 Turbo S.

I came across this 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive and figured I’d add it to our list of very high-priced and limited production 911s I’ve posted lately. If you want one only 500 will be produced. I don’t know how many currently are on the ground, but I have only seen one other for sale. It was not Gold. While I expect we’ll see a few more of these pop up just as we have with the various GT 911s I don’t know if we’ll see quite as many. Markup, of course, is substantial, though not GT2 RS high.
