2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

The GT3 RS. The king of the naturally-aspirated 911s and the personal favorite of many, myself included. As an individual model it’s been around only since 2003, but the RS has roots all the way back to the 1973 Carrera RS and we may even take that further back to the extremely limited 1967 911R or the 356 Carrera. Regardless of which model we see as the progenitor it’s clear these run deep in Porsche’s roots.

The version we see here is the penultimate example built for the 997 featuring a 3.8 liter engine delivering 450 hp to a 6-speed manual transmission. While not the top dog – that position falls to the very rare GT3 RS 4.0 – these still produce plenty of power and provide plenty of road and track ability. This Carrara White with Red graphics example is in near flawless condition and sits with only 3,400 miles on it.

2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

There are good and bad ways to sell a car. You can provide a wide array of pictures under different lighting and from different angles utilizing shots taken from a distance and detail shots close up. You can show all of the body panels, the full interior, and while not always useful a shot of the engine never hurts. The ad text could follow a similar tack: details on the model, history, and available documentation. There’s no need to go overboard, but you put yourself in the buyer’s position and provide the answers to the questions you’d expect to ask were you buying the car.

Or, you can take a seemingly random array of photos under poor lighting and provide only the barest details in the ad. This seller has chosen the latter course for the photos and a mix of the two for the ad text. So it definitely could be less informative, but from a picture perspective there’s a lot to be desired here. But we shall persevere because the point of this 911 is the exterior color and that we get to see: Mexico Blue.

Speed Yellow 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

Alright, let’s continue with the value theme, but now we’re going to leave the air-cooled market behind. Once we’ve done that reasonable values become much more the norm. Not only that, but we get better performance and typically far fewer miles. Those preferring the air-cooled models and the analog versus digital nature of most earlier cars, I hear you. But once you step into this century you really do get a lot for your money.

For this one we have a very sexy Speed Yellow 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe, located in Oregon, with 22,029 miles on it. I definitely could be accused of finding the 997 a bit boring, a bit too refined, but this one isn’t boring at all. With the Carrera S you get more displacement and more displacement equals more power. In this case that means 355 hp all being delivered to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual.

2006 Porsche 997S, only 22k miles!

This is a stunning local Porsche that is very well equipped. The Carrera S was the largest displacement engine in 2006 with a 3.8 litres and 355 horsepower. Hard to find in many Porsches today, three pedals and 6-speed manual transmission. This car is very special in how it is optioned inside and out. It has all the top of the line options like Sport Chrono Plus, Bose high-end sound system, and Full Leather interior. The exterior is Speed Yellow, and is protected by 3m clear paint protection, so it is just like new. It has the optional 19 alloys with painted crests and Michelin Pilot Sport rubber.

2007 Porsche 911 GT3

I have been featuring a lot of fairly expensive Porsches lately and my plan for this week was to feature a few that were of a more normal variety. The sort more people might think seriously about purchasing and could afford to do so. Unfortunately, I have immediately become distracted by this very pretty Carrara White 2007 Porsche 911 GT3. The asking price actually isn’t that bad so in a way this does fit within the scope of my original plan, but a reasonably priced GT3 is still an expensive car so it isn’t precisely what I had in mind. I just can’t take my eyes off of it!

2007 Porsche 911 GT3

It doesn’t take much for me to take notice of any of the Porsches with “GT” in the moniker. I’m a big fan of pretty much all of them and certainly enjoy coming across nice ones for sale. The GT3 RS sits at the top of the naturally-aspirated group, but as things tend to go with the top model prices can be very high. This becomes even more true as we move toward the end of the 997 line when Porsche began seeing just how much engine they could stuff into the back of the RS chassis.

If we choose to step back just a bit to the GT3 prices suddenly become much more reasonable. I’ve looked a lot at the 996 GT3 lately as those seem to come in at really nice values for all the performance you get. As prices for the 996TT have gradually risen even those long-time performance bargains now make us look twice at the GT3. Fortunately for those looking to keep their spending sensible, the early GT3 models from the 997 line also remain on the reasonable side. Prices are, of course, still higher than the 996, but you’re getting more car too. You’re also getting a better looking 911.

The one we see here, an Arctic Silver Metallic 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 with 45,500 miles on it, is particularly striking even in silver and looks to have been very well maintained. For the buyer looking for a GT3 that’s been babied its whole life and rarely driven hard I don’t think this is the car for you. But for those who don’t mind some hard driving so long as it’s given proper care this one should make for a nice option.

2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS

I’m still blown away every time I come across one of these cars: a 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS. We’ve featured a few of them in the past and, in truth, there is very little that distinguishes them outside of whatever exterior color the particular car happens to be wearing. The mileage is always very low and the condition excellent, points that don’t really surprise us with a car like this. Yet, each time I can’t stop staring. The GT2 is already a car of excesses and the RS takes those excesses even further by raising the power and lowering the weight, transforming an already extremely capable machine into an absolute beast. When you have 620 hp being asked to propel a car weighing just a bit under 3,100 lbs you can expect brisk performance. Having all of that power directed to the rear wheels of a rear-engined car is, frankly, almost baffling. Paying attention is most definitely required.

The look of the GT2 RS continues that sense of excess. It is the most menacing of any 911 I have seen and that is especially the case with an all-black version like the one we see here. It’s squat and powerful looking and the various wings and intakes – along with a giant set of rear rubber – make clear that this is a car to be taken very seriously.…

2007 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe

One of the comments on my recent post of a 996TT with the X50 package is that prices for these machines – especially when the mileage is very low as that one was – have risen close enough to the 997TT that the 996 begins to make less sense. That’s a very fair critique as prices have moved upward. As performance value goes, why not go for even more performance? So this seemed a worthwhile time to check in on the 997 Turbo and see what you can get.

Here we have a Midnight Blue Metallic 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe, located in New Jersey, with Natural Brown leather interior and 21,994 miles on it. This certainly is not the only 997 Turbo on the market, nor is it the cheapest, but it is one of the few that I found in a color other than Silver or Black and equipped with a manual transmission. If you like Silver and want the Tiptronic transmission there are a lot of options and they’re all plenty cheaper than this one. But those aren’t an apt comparison with the typical 996 we look at so I thought this made for a better representative.

Tuner Tuesday: 2006 RUF RT12S

In a strange comparison to earlier’s 500SL 412, here’s another matte black car. It, too, is German. Outside of that, the two share little in common.

That’s because unlike the Mercedes-Benz which was primarily a piece of marketing, this is from the workshop of Alois Ruf. And Ruf’s cars are all about performance. So even though this 997-based turbocharged RUF RT12S is over a decade old, it still produces more power than the current 911 Turbo. Over 100 more. It’s faster, too – get the launch just right and mash the gas, and RUF claimed you’ll hit 60 m.p.h. in 2.8 seconds. When Road and Track tested it, the R12 did a standing mile in 28 seconds at 187.5 mph. In the time it’s probably taken you to read this first paragraph (35 seconds), the RT would be past 200 on its way to the 224 mph top speed. Yet it wasn’t just about raw speed; like all RUFs, it was beautifully built and full of exquisite detail work on par with leading manufacturers.

But while the speed is certainly impressive, it’s not the reason why I decided to feature this car…

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Club Coupe

Earlier this week I featured one of Porsche’s classic 911 special editions. This time we’ll turn to one of the modern versions. I’m not sure if we’ve ever featured this edition so it makes for a nice treat. This is a 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Club Coupe, located in Ontario, with just 3,044 miles on it. The condition looks superb and with only 50 such produced it is one of the rarer editions out there. The seller definitely is trying to capitalize on that rarity with an asking price that strikes me as insane, but given that I can’t ever recall seeing one come up for sale I suppose some premium is warranted. Add in the very low miles and surely we have a valuable 911. But this valuable?

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

There isn’t very much time remaining on this ad, but since it isn’t an auction and doesn’t appear to be going anywhere too quickly that shouldn’t be overly problematic. I expect it will be relisted. It is, however, an interesting 997 in its color combination and likely its selling price, which should be very much on the reasonable end. The mileage is high, sitting at 110,235, but if its maintenance has been good, then I would see no reason why it couldn’t continue to provide enjoyable motoring in a pretty sophisticated package. Here we have a Carmona Red Metallic 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe, located in Washington, with Terracotta leather interior and desirable 6-speed manual transmission.

2006 Porsche Carrera 4 Coupe in Carmon Red Metallic with Black and Terracotta Interior. 3.6L/325hp 6-Cylinder Engine. 6-Speed Manual Trans. All-Wheel Drive (AWD). Original MSRP was $87,750 with Factory options for this scintillating C4 Coupe including; Bi-Color Interior in Black/Terracotta, Carmon Red Metallic Paint Color, Supple Leather Front and Rear, Power Seat Package, Heated Front Seats, Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package, Self-Dimming Mirrors, TPMS, Fire Extinguisher, 5mm Wheel Spacers, Black Mats with ‘Porsche’ lettering. This is a great looking Carrera 4 that has been well maintained and properly serviced. Runs and drives excellent and shows in outstanding condition throughout – much finer than the mileage might indicate.

The Carrera 4 has earned a cult-like following and they are highly desirable 911’s, as they combine the best parts of the 911 range. Starting with the widebody that is shared with the turbo model, the Carrera 4 adds standard all wheel drive, sport tuned suspension, and the precision braking system from the Turbo, creating a menacing looking car that is equally happy being briskly driven on a twisty backroad as it is tackling the dreary winter evenings.
