Paint-to-Sample 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo with 717 miles

This is a car that will press many of us to ask, “Why?” The 964 Turbo is a favorite of many, whether it be one of the original 3.3 liter Turbos or the later 3.6 liter Turbo that raised the performance bar even further. These were the last standard Turbos Porsche produced with rear-wheel drive as all-wheel drive became the norm beginning with the 993. That makes them quite special and one of the 911s most capable of providing a thrilling, rewarding, and white knuckle experience for its drivers. To not take advantage of those capabilities by actually driving the darn thing tends to ruffle the feathers. That is the case with the Turbo we see here. I think we can see the impulse that got us here – this is a well-optioned and unique 911 intended for a collector – but it still rankles. Oh well.

That (massive) negative out of the way this really is a pretty unique opportunity and while it’s difficult to be certain whether a particular car is the lowest mileage available, we can feel pretty confident that this one is close. Also, its absurdly low mileage is not its only selling point. Here we have a paint-to-sample Pearl White Metallic 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Texas, with Black interior and a scant 717 miles on it. A tour through the pictures will reveal many of the other options added to this 911.

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6

It’s been quite a while since we featured a 911 Turbo 3.6 with an asking price below $200K. In fact, it appears that of all of them we’ve featured only one had such a price. The one we see here, a Black 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 with Cashmere Beige interior and 54,562 miles, is not only priced below $200K, but at $164,000 it’s a good bit under $200K. Naturally, the question is why the price is so relatively low? We’ll speculate on some of that below, but I do also wonder about the prices for these Turbos in general. While so many we have come across were indeed priced above $200K they weren’t exactly selling outside of incredibly low mileage examples. Many auctions were being bid precisely into the territory in which this one is priced. So perhaps the price here is just a realistic one. Imagine that!

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe – Twin-Turbo with 550 bhp

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe – Twin-Turbo with 550 bhp

I can see why a magazine might call this 993 a sleeper. Of course, with its bright red paint it certainly isn’t going to escape notice so I’m not sure it fits the bill of the wolf in sheep’s clothing. Maybe a wolf in a ball gown? Either way, with a reported 550 bhp on tap this 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe definitely will take the unsuspecting by surprise. With its standard Carrera body and no whale tail it certainly doesn’t look like a 911 Turbo, but it goes like one. In fact, given that the 993TT only made 408 hp it actually goes better than one. Naturally, with any such build seeing some proof of these numbers would be useful, though many owners might be satisfied using seat-of-the-pants testing. What we’ll surely want to see is the documentation of the build. It doesn’t appear to be running any kind of intercooler so I’m curious how all of this manages to work efficiently, but I’m no turbo expert so perhaps it’s no problem at all. None the less, performance should be quite breathtaking and it looks pretty darn good as well. Love the BBS RS-GT wheels on the 993!

2008 Porsche 911 GT2

2008 Porsche 911 GT2

I’ve been looking at quite a few high-dollar 911s lately and among the pantheon of Porsche supercars the GT2 tends to stand on its own. Unlike the extremely high priced original 993 GT2 where values soar to over $1M the water-cooled cars have less collector interest and thus lower costs. But the performance is not lower. Not lower at all.

I see examples of the 996 GT2 come around pretty often, and prices have generally been moving up. I see the 997 GT2 far less often, outside of the ridiculously sublime GT2 RS which can easily set you back nearly $500K, so I’m a little curious where these will fall on the spectrum. Where will their value lie relative to the rising values of the 996? As I mentioned in my roundup of the 996 GT3: while the 996 still makes for a reasonable value even among the GT cars, as they approach the cost of a similar 997 then we begin to open up even greater performance value potential.

1981 Porsche 930

1981 Porsche 930

Enthusiasts never like it when manufacturers remove cars from our market, especially when said car is still being produced in other markets. Frustrations are elevated even further when the car is a higher performance model, as is typically the case. It was precisely this scenario in which Porsche’s US customers found themselves mired in the early-’80s when the 930 was no longer being produced for the US market. At the time, Porsche did not want to commit the money to meet stricter emissions requirements so the model was pulled. It was only in 1986 that it returned. On the bright side, since the 930 still was being produced it was not impossible for US customers to find a way to get one. And, of course, in later years importation also represented an opportuntiy. We have just such an example here with this Black 1981 Porsche 930, located in California, with 49,794 miles on it.

Speed Yellow 1996 Porsche 911 GT2

Speed Yellow 1996 Porsche 911 GT2

Few Porsches capture the imagination and turn heads like the 911 GT2. And among the various iterations of the GT2, the 993 GT2 is the most coveted. While engineering and technological progress naturally have rendered later models more powerful and sophisticated performers, the raw prowess of the original car remains the benchmark. Serving as both the first 911 GT2 put into production as well as the last and only air-cooled GT2 produced, the 993 brings with it the kind of rarity that rapidly elevates prices. Add in that it represented the highest performance among production 911s of its day and you’ve pretty much checked all of the boxes a collector could desire. The example we see here, a Speed Yellow 1996 Porsche 911 GT2 having traveled around 33K kilometers during its life, will be up for auction next Friday at RM Sotheby’s auctions in Phoenix.

2003 Porsche 911 Turbo X50

2003 Porsche 911 Turbo X50

I’ve featured a decent number of 996TTs lately, but they’ve all been of a different sort than what is typical for us. They’ve all been shifted toward the pricier end of the spectrum and more collector quality for those who want to speculate on the possibility of that market moving upward. In most cases these have been the one-year-only Turbo S. Here I’m going to hope to move back toward the performance value side of the equation. This is the reason we’re typically here in the first place after all. But that movement toward value doesn’t mean we have to make sacrifices in performance. While the Turbo S may wear a different moniker and command more attention and value it’s not really fundamentally different from a standard Turbo equipped with the X50 performance package. And what do you know, look what we have here: a Midnight Blue Metallic 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Knoxville, with Cinnamon leather interior, 79,700 miles on it, and that highly desirable X50 package. It is the higher mileage that will keep this Turbo’s price in reasonable territory, but the condition shows us a very nice 911 that could compete with those lower-mileage examples and their higher prices.

Double Take: 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

Double Take: 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

Could it be that there might actually be some value to be found on the 993 Turbo market? It has seemed like an impossible dream for a while as prices continued to elevate, but as I look around now I’m starting to wonder if there’s been a shift. Granted, we’re still not talking about inexpensive cars; after all north of six figures remains the norm. But we’re getting closer to crossing that magic barrier. I first had an inkling of this last summer when I featured this 911 Turbo and thought all things considered the price wasn’t bad. It wasn’t cheap, but it felt like prices had moved down a step. I didn’t think too much of it at the time, but I think now we need to give them a little more attention. The two we’re going to look at here aren’t the only two Turbos on the market right now, but they’re two that stood out to me the most. I’ll begin with the cheaper of the pair: a Black over Tan 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo with 80,533 miles on it located in Denver.

1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

There is always a place for subtlety in the car world and while subtle hardly applies to the Porsche 930, among modified examples it’s a term that can make sense. It’s rare that I feature a modified 930 as most of those I come across appear in questionable condition or simply seem overdone. Here we have a definite exception. This 930’s modifications are limited to the engine so from the outside it appears almost completely original. It also happens to come in a very attractive Dark Blue over Tan leather interior. For fans of dark colors it’s a nice alternative to the more common Black 930. Under the skin, a K27 turbo, upgraded intercooler, and Andial fuel system are said to raise power to “more than” 385 hp. That’s a substantial gain over the stock car’s 282 hp and given the already engaging dynamics of a 930 it’s sure to be extremely attention grabbing for any driver!

Another Kermit? 1976 Porsche 930

Another Kermit? 1976 Porsche 930

It seems just about any early 911 that is all green takes on the name ‘Kermit’. We’ve featured what might best represent the true and original example, a Viper Green Metallic 1979 Porsche 911SC. That 911 borrowed its exterior color from VW and it probably comes closest to mimicking the color of the famous frog. The one we see here uses Porsche’s own version of the similarly named color – Viper Green Diamond Metallic. It’s a little bit darker than Kermit himself, but still possesses that same sense of joy that’s really what makes these so appealing to many. That this version happens to be an early 1976 Porsche 930 should absolutely elevate it in the eyes of many collectors.

1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

Colors I’ve never come across will always draw extra attention. On an early 930, I know I’m hooked. So what do we have here? It’s a 1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera in paint-to-sample Gazelle Metallic with a nice looking and contrasting Dark Brown leather interior. The CoA hasn’t been provided here so we lack that verification, but the rarity of the color seems hard to doubt. And, really, what better way to paint a sports car than as a gazelle? Avoid the lions and you’re sure to make spirited progress! Like the Copper Brown Metallic 930 we saw last week the colors here are very much a period-correct combination, and in this case perhaps even more so. Yet each also possesses enough charm to help it excel even outside of its original vintage. This one is not quite gold, not quite brown. It is not quite like any other color I’ve seen.

2005 Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupe

I’ve mentioned previously that there aren’t a lot of the 2005 Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupes around. And it’s true – for a while I only rarely would come across one as most examples of the Turbo S were produced as a Cabriolet. Yet, here I have the third one in the past couple months. Like the others it’s equipped with a manual transmission, though unlike the others its mileage is a little higher. Not ‘high’ exactly as it sits at only 48,582, but higher than those other comparable models. With that comes perhaps a discount for what is a phenomenal performer?

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

In my frequent searching for interesting 930s I sometimes forget about the mechanically similar 3.3 liter 964 Turbo that served as the 930’s successor. Even when looking for 964s themselves I’ll many times gloss over the 3.3-liter Turbo, preferring to focus on the rarer and much more sought after 3.6-liter Turbo that came at the end of 964 production. Given relative pricing of an early 964 Turbo and an ’89 930 I guess I’m not the only one that tends to neglect the 964 variant. Of course, the collectability of the one-year-only 5-speed 930 has a bit to do with these price differences, but for those seeking a driver the 964 steps in as a nice option with the same 5-speed as the ’89 930 mated to a more powerful flat six. Not a bad combination. The one we have here hasn’t blessed us with a great selection of pictures, but I don’t notice anything glaring and definitely think it’s worth a longer look. Here we have a Black 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in California, with a Grey interior and 65,982 miles on it.

2002 Porsche 911 Turbo with RWD Conversion

I wasn’t 100% sure I wanted to feature this 911 Turbo when I first came across it, but there’s enough to draw me in that I figured others may want a look as well. My hesitation is that we really don’t have much to go by to assess the car and, given that we’re not exactly dealing with a low stress family cruiser, uncertainty is far from desirable. But such is the world of modifications and eBay hunting. This 2002 Porsche 911 Turbo, showcasing a beautiful Cobalt Blue exterior, is now far from its stock configuration, as most notably it now delivers all of its power to only the rear wheels. We’re also told there’s much more and factory upgrades, but what those are isn’t terribly clear. My hunch is that they’re not of much significance. Of interest to me is the rear-wheel drive conversion anyway and while even that aspect resides in some mystery here it’s straightforward enough to figure out and (hopefully) the other details can be worked out through a phone call. Any 911 Turbo is going to provide spirited and attention grabbing driving; with this much rear wheel power drivers must really maintain their focus.

I could be totally off base here, and I will admit that there is some legwork and research to be done, but I think this 1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera is priced pretty darn well and could be a really nice value. I’ve featured a few 911 Turbos of late that struck me similarly so perhaps values for even these early Turbos are starting to come down some, but it is certainly worth investigating further. The colors appear to be Copper Brown Metallic over a Cork interior, a very period-correct combination that looks really nice on this 930 and presents well inside and out. We’re told it has been repainted, but the interior is said to be entirely original.
