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. The sound from the 3.8 is upgraded with factory option Sports Exhaust that comes with special chrome tips. The stance is widened from the factory with 5mm wheel spacers to improve handling and fill out the wheel wells. On the interior when you open the door you see illuminated stainless door sills, and color matching seat belts. To hold you firm in this car are factory Sport Seats with Porsche crests embossed in the headrests. Along with upgraded floor mats, it has the High-EndBose sound system, including CD changer, and PCM navigation. If you are looking for great Porsche this is the car. You will not find a nicer one unless you are buying new.
It has been well cared for, with no issues ever, not smoked in, and drives like it just came off the showroom floor.

This is a very striking 911 and for me definitely one of the better looking examples of the 997. Speed Yellow is really bright and that won’t be for everyone, but it’s a nice departure from all of the blacks and silvers of the world. The mostly black interior contrasts perfectly with that yellow exterior and is accented by yellow belts in the interior. It’s just the right mix of bright and dark. The curves are filled out wonderfully and it still possesses that distinct 911 shape. With sport seats and the aforementioned manual transmission this Carrera S retains the long tradition of combining the most of performance and luxury that has long been Porsche’s trademark.

We can certainly quibble over the merits of the water-cooled 911s relative to the original air-cooled models, but there’s no debating that the performance of these modern 911s is near unmatched for the money. Bidding here sits at $40,100 – that’s lower than both of my previous features: a 911SC and 964 that each showed well above 100K miles. I love the early 911s and the classic 911 has been a part of me nearly my whole life. But if you just want the performance, then this is the way to go.

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!

We are pleased to present this clean 2-owner Carrara White 2007 911 GT3 for a local client who currently resides out of state. The car has been in our care since it was purchased in February 2016. It is presently stored in a climate controlled garage with 40,619 miles.

Price with GT2 seats – $97,000
Price with stock GT3 seats -$89,000

The car has four (4) desirable upgrades, each of which is reversible:
-Factory leather GT2 carbon buckets
-Factory Porsche Motorsport GT3 Cup lip
-Factory clear corner markers (stock orange markers included with sale
-FVD side muffler bypass (stock mufflers included with sale)

A PPI performed by Minneapolis Porsche on 08/15/17 includes a perfect DME with zero over-revs in all ranges. We’ve changed the oil in 3,000mi intervals with factory recommended fluid and parts. A 40,000mi major service (plugs, fluids, filters, chassis lubrication) was recently completed as well.

As mentioned above, we’re familiar with the car and would be happy to answer any car-related questions. Send us a PM or call (612) 547-9311 and we’ll assist in connecting with the seller.

Like the last 997 GT3 I featured this isn’t a super low-mileage example. It’s been driven a good bit and it sounds like it has even seen a few track days. Yet here it sits still looking wonderful and well cared for. This is exactly the type of 911 we like to see as it’s been enjoyed and pushed to its limits just as the engineers intended, but it doesn’t look to have been abused. Of course, any car like this will need a PPI and that it has had some track time further emphasizes that need, but we can hope its mechanical state will be as rock solid as its looks.

I’ve said that I think white cars only work well on particular models and that for my tastes the appeal can be rather limited. This GT3 in Carrara White looks fantastic and I really like the way the red brake calipers are so easily accentuated. This wouldn’t have been a color I’d expect to love, but here we are. As we can see it comes with a set of highly-desirable GT2 seats, though in this case there is a cost for those. The seller will knock $8K off the price if you’d prefer the standard GT3 seats. While $8K is a lot of money for a couple seats it does seem to be around the going rate, and based upon some ads may even be on the low end. Unless you really aren’t a fan of the seats I’d think they’re the way to go.

GT2 seats, a lovely looking GT3 to mount them in, and fantastic driving all for below six figures. It’s not at a price that just anyone can afford, but overall it isn’t too bad and should be well worth the investment.

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.

Tastefully optioned car with sunroof and factory adaptive sport seats

Noted PNWR PCA ownership

All records, books, manuals, and tools present

OVERVIEW

When Porsche continued the GT3 theme into the 997 chassis, they perfected a recipe long in the making. A GT3 is a special treat in the Porsche world, as it is an extremely honed platform. Presented in factory Arctic Silver Metallic over Black Leather, this 997 chassis GT3 is an exceptional driver’s car.

Unique to the GT3 is the engine. Popularly known as a “Mezger” engine, after it’s designer Hans Mezger, this engine shares the general architecture with the racing Porsche 962 engine. Dry-sumped, with water cooled heads, this engine is a special piece and the heart of the GT3. Coupled to a close ratio 6 speed manual transmission, the GT3 also enjoys larger brakes, lowered suspension, front and rear aero package and light weight wheels to distinguish it from a standard 911.

Most recent owner of this car was Ward Carter, the past president of the PNW Region PCA Chapter. Ward used the car extensively in PCA autocross events, and the car is currently set-up for that (suspension and alignment perfectly dialed in over the years). Sitting on nearly new tires, this GT3 handles among the best of any 997 GT3 we have sampled.

Fresh off an $8K+ engine out service (welded coolant lines, oil service, etc.) just 900 miles ago, this GT3 is mechanically ready for anything. Service records are present for all work since day one where the car was originally sold through Roger Jobs Porsche in Bellingham, WA.

The front end is protected with a clear bra, and overall the car presents well in person, with the classic color combination of silver over black.

Notable options on the original window sticker include:

Adaptive Sport Seats
Heated seats
Seatbelts in Guards Red
Bi-Xenon light package
Chrono Package
Self dimming mirrors
This two-owner 2007 Porsche GT3 is currently showing 45,000 miles and is fresh from a recent major service. Offered with full service records, original books, manuals, window sticker, and keys, this GT3 will not disappoint the driver in you.

Please call Jason at 206-355-7727 for more information on this Porsche 997 GT3 for sale.

This GT3 makes for a nice comparison with the Speed Yellow GT3 with Clubsport options I featured a couple weeks ago. That one had some great additions and was priced pretty high for a 996 GT3 with its mileage. This one is similar mileage and less unique in its options – though the sport seats are a great add – so it comes in at the lower end of 997 pricing. Both look to be examples of GT3s used extensively and shown great care. This one is two owner rather than one owner, but it is said to come with a full service history beginning from its sale.

I think both of these GT3s are really interesting. This one looks in phenomenal condition. Ownership by a former PCA chapter president gives it a certain credence and the condition tends to bear that out. With a full service history and recent engine service it looks ready to deliver some excellent driving. And the price comes in under six figures. Love it!

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. As an attempt by Porsche to see just how far they could push the 911, both in the sense of power and overall performance, the GT2 RS is one heck of an effort and I imagine they will be highly sought after any time one comes up for sale.

Assuming, of course, you have about half-a-million dollars to throw around. When I have seen these come up at the prestigious auction houses sales have ranged from mid-$400Ks to mid-$500Ks. This one is priced toward the higher end of that scale and I’m not sure I expect it to reach such a price. Those I’ve seen in the $500Ks have had fewer miles or came in another color (red seems popular for higher prices). Regardless, this will be a very expensive car and even if its sale takes some time a bit of patience from the seller should pay off. For me, I just want to look and marvel at just how far a 911 can be pushed.

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.

The 997’s return to round headlights was greeted warmly by most 911 fans and I think we can easily see why. The overall look of this Turbo follows more in the footsteps of its air-cooled predecessors than the 996. The interior too, while clearly more modern, bears a stronger resemblance to earlier 911s and improves upon another problem of the 996. The only item I’ve never liked is the wheels, but that’s an easy fix. Overall, on appearance alone this is a serious step up. The 911 Turbo showcases the best of Porsche’s luxury and performance in a single package, but I’ve always thought the 997 truly gave us Porsche’s most direct movement into that territory. The 993TT shows us this side of Porsche as well, but there’s a definite aggression in its design and those lines are smoothed out by the time we get to the 997. Performance, of course, is superb.

Ok, what about price? At almost $80K we’re a good bit above the price of most 996TTs, at least so long as those cars stay in the $60Ks. The gap definitely has narrowed though and, as I said above, this is by no means the cheapest 997 available. I imagine we will slowly see that gap narrow more still before the performance differences begin to pull them back apart. Of course, a non-X50 996 still sits much further down and while that leaves us with an even more significant performance difference, we can’t exactly classify those cars as slow. We have moved quite a bit from the days when a 996TT in really nice shape could be had for around $40K, but there’s still a lot of performance to be found in these cars for the money.

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?

This 2006 Porsche 911 Club Coupe is number 39 out of 50 made.

This car has been stored in a climate controlled glass box that was specifically made in the garage for the car, hidden from sunlight and any elements, stored under its cover and on tire cradles to prevent the original tires uneven tire wear from storage. While in storage, the car has a constant battery charge on the original battery. This car has never seen rain, let alone a cloudy day. This car has every service record and document since it was ordered in 2005. It is meticulously clean.

In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of the Porsche Club of America, Porsche created an exclusive distinctive colour, unique interior styling and commemorative touches, and a more powerful and higher performing engine. Limited to an exclusive run of just 50 cars initially made available to PCA members.

The first production model of this vehicle was returned to the Porsche Museum in Germany and one lucky PCA member won the 15th model in a sweepstakes drawing. The remaining 48 models were offered to randomly chosen PCA members who applied to purchase this extremely rare car. The Porsche 911 Club Coupe, which was available only in the unique Azzuro California colour, comes equipped with a more powerful 381hp engine with the X51 Power Kit. Other features unique to this special model include a vehicle identification number (VIN) which ends with the production number and special commemorative badges and door sills which adorn the interior. Additional exclusive options were available to customers and this one has the Aero kit Other exclusive options include Storage Compartment Lid with Model Logo and the Porsche Crest in the Headrests.

The 911 Club Coupe’s most visual exterior feature is its distinguishing Azzuro California Blue colour. This paint colour is a modern interoperation of azure blue, a colour mode popular on Porsche 356 sports cars when the PCA was founded 50 years ago. The rear portion of the standard centre console and the rear of the drivers and passenger seats is also painted in Azurro California.

In addition to the sport series seats, the 911 Club Coupe’s standard interior features include black instrument dials and a sort steer in wheel and gear shifter. Stainless steel door sills incorporate the 911 Club Coupe logo, and each car bears a badge on the drivers side door trim indicating its individual number in the series of 50 cars. The interior also features the Sport Chrono Package Plus which enhances vehicle performance through a system that simultaneously alters elements of chassis, engine, and transmission. In addition to the ability to take performance to new heights, the Sport Chrono Package equips the vehicle with performance display, digital and analog stopwatches, and the Sport Plus button.

The Club Coupe was the first in the current generation of Porsche 911 Sports cars to be equipped with the X51 Powerkit. This feature increases the output of the 3.8L, flat six cylinder Carrera S engine from 355hp to 381hp and peak torque from 295 to 306 ft. lbs., making it, at the time, the most powerful non-turbocharged engine offered in a Porsche 911 production car in North America. Distinguished by its carbon finer air cleaner housing, the X51 Powerkit boots performance through a series of engine enhancements including a larger throttle body, optimized intake airflow, cylinder heads and exhaust manifold modifications, changes in the control unit, and the inclusion of a sport exhaust system. The result produces a 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds, and a top track speed of 186mph.

The Clue Coupe was produced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Porsche Club of North America. Now, you might be thinking: didn’t Porsche just release a special edition Club Coupe in commemoration of the PCNA? They did! That was for the 60th anniversary. Look for the next one in 2026. The 50 year version came with a variety of cosmetic enhancements to set it apart from every other 911: the exterior came only in Azurro California – a lovely shade of light blue metallic that reminds me of Iris Blue from the ’80s – and the interior came in Stone Grey leather with sport seats and the center console painted to match the exterior. It’s a really nice color combination that appears to show well in a variety of lighting conditions. Unlike some of the earlier commemorative editions the Club also came with a bit more power in the guise of the X51 powerkit. Not too bad all around.

This particular Club Coupe has been pampered somewhat beyond reason and basically hermetically sealed in a glass box. Though it appears the owner has been gracious enough to allow it the freedom to romp around among some flowers every now and again. Very nice. Is it worth $230,000? I’d be very surprised. I suppose my interest lies in where it actually sells. I’m sure it’s one of the better examples out there given that it is more or less unused, but the buyer of this car will have to care for it under similar white glove conditions. Where’s the fun in that?

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.

This example also has the enthusiast required manual transmission, making it the perfect everyday sports car for the PNW.

The cockpit of this Porsche maintains basic design themes from the past but boasts cleaner layouts and enhanced functionality, particularly the classic instrument cluster and an ignition lock to the left of the steering wheel. Though the cabin has a function-oriented layout, upscale materials on the doors and dashboard, and remarkable craftsmanship and attention to detail throughout welcomes both driver and passenger. The heated power seats in front, wrapped in optional supple leather, are firmly bolstered and deeply contoured, offering miles of comfortable driving. The Porsche 911 Carrera is considered as one of the most iconic models in the history of the industry. There aren’t many sports cars that have been around as long as the 911, and none that have stayed as true to the original’s formula. At the same time, Porsche has managed to transform the 911 into a modern sports car with the performance and amenities buyers expect. It’s an icon of the sports car world.

This color combination almost tells two different stories. The burgundy-hued exterior brings with it some elegance, but little in the way of flash. It’s a very pretty shade of red, but like most of the darker hues it allows one to blend in to a degree. The Terracotta interior, however, suggests no such intention of blending in with the crowd. While certainly not as bright as Can-can Red, the contrast with the exterior is somewhat pronounced. I think it makes for an attractive combination and it looks to have been well cared for during its life.

Given that it has more than 100K miles a PPI would be a good idea. While the seller is correct that the Carrera 4 came with a wider rear, I’m not sure the sport suspension or Turbo brakes were standard. That seems to be a confusion with the 4S. I believe the suspension would have been optional and perhaps it was selected (though the listed options in the ad do not mention this), but given that this Carrera 4 lacks red calipers we can probably assume these aren’t the Turbo brakes. Those looking for a Carrera 4 probably will be aware of these differences, but it is the sort of thing that tells us we should look at little closer at whatever records are available. At the end of the day, this higher-mileage 911 comes in at a pretty nice price and surely offers a heck of a lot of performance for that price. That it comes in an interesting color combination and with a 6-speed manual just makes everything that much sweeter.

2007 Porsche 911 GT3

This post serves as a nice companion to my 996 GT3 roundup from a few weeks back. Much of my interest in that post was on performance value – our not uncommon focus of any 996 in general – and at the time I was wondering about the proximity of 996 prices to those of the 997 GT3. Well here we have one: a Black on Black 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 located in New Jersey with 18,894 miles on it. There isn’t anything terribly special about this GT3 – other than, you know, it being one of the best 911 models Porsche produced – as it’s a fairly standard color combination and we aren’t told of any special options that would grab our attention. Similarly, while the mileage is low it isn’t outrageously so. I think it’s in a nice spot. With an asking price about $20K above where we’ve seen similar 996 GT3s sell there’s certainly a noticeable price difference, but it isn’t so big that we would remove it from consideration.

Part of why the price of this GT3 (and others like it on the market) isn’t too far off from the 996 is because it comes from the first generation 997. If we change our search to the 997.2 GT3 the price takes another incremental step upward and the comparison with the 996 no longer seems as relevant. Of course, with each model step the performance goes up as well with power rising from 380 to 415 to 435 as we move along the spectrum. Technological improvements to the suspension and aerodynamics show similar incremental improvements. One area where the 997 significantly makes strides is in appearance. While I’ll grant that really isn’t the most important factor with such a performance-focused car it’s still something just about everyone will have under consideration, especially when taking into account similar pricing.

Pretty much any GT3 will make for a worthwhile opportunity so long as the buyer does his homework and these certainly remain one of the best performance values on the Porsche market. That value takes a couple hits as we move up the ladder with the 996 remaining a seriously tough to beat option. But there are options, and for those with a little extra to spend a 997 GT3 like this one should provide loads of satisfaction.

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.

** THIS CAR IS PHYSICALLY LOCATED IN BRAINTREE, MA *

With only 1261 produced worldwide and around 200 for the US (I’ve seen 205 quoted, but the ad here states 234) the 997 GT2 is a pretty rare machine though certainly far more common than some of Porsche’s rarest 911s. That sort of thing might condition how we think of the long term value of these performance beasts, but we can probably rest assured knowing that values aren’t going to come down much. That said, the GT2 RS obviously trumps one of these and with a 991 GT2 now looking to be in the works you never really know how things will play out. Of course, the optimist might then look at the GT2 and dream of track days and devilishly good fun at the wheels of one of Porsche’s giants with less worry about adding on those high intensity miles.

This particular GT2 looks in fine condition in its popular Arctic Silver Metallic paint. It is pretty low mileage for an ’08 911, but not necessarily low for a GT2. While it’s tough to call anything a nice value when it will likely have a selling price around $200K, those specifically looking for a GT2 might find this one to be reasonable. Supercar performance of this sort never really comes cheaply. Bidding currently sits at $90,300. Naturally we expect that to rise, but maybe not so much that it cannot compete with the 996 as a performance value.
