It seems there are so many 911 Club Coupes these days that I can’t even recall which are intended to celebrate which milestone. The one we see here, a 2013 Porsche 911 Club Coupe, was built to celebrate 60 years of Porsche clubs worldwide. It’s a more general celebration than the 2016 Club Coupe (and 2006 Club Coupe before that), which celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Porsche Club of America.
So what distinguishes the 2013 version? Based off of the Carrera S Coupe, it came with a special Brewster Green exterior contrasted with an Espresso interior. The color combination is quite striking though in a much more subdued way than the extremely bright Club Blue of the 2016 version. To bring additional performance the Powerkit was included as standard along with ceramic brakes, Sport Chrono and PASM. Only 13 were built and the lucky buyers were selected by lottery and asked to pay just over $175K. Like with many Porsche special editions you could spec a similar 911 for less money, though you wouldn’t get the special exterior paint.
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.
In some ways, this 911 could have found its way into the group of cars I featured earlier this week. It would have been the lowest price by a substantial margin, but given the difficulty in obtaining one – only 60 were made available and those only to PCA members – then we could understand why some might aspire to own just such a car. The 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Club Coupe follows in the line of many special edition examples in that it serves to recognize a particular Porsche milestone. In this case that milestone being the 60th year of the Porsche Club of America. Also like many Porsche special editions the primary manner in which these are differentiated from other models is mostly aesthetic, though as noted above this model was additionally distinguished through its restricted availability. Of course, that issue does not affect the secondary market. The base of the Club Coupe begins at the top of the 911 model range with the Carrera GTS, featuring the widened rear of the Carrera 4, but retaining its rear-drive layout. Added to that is a Powerkit, initially only available on the Club Coupe, to boost power to 430 hp. But the most striking feature is the paint, which has been dubbed Club Blau, and it really sets the Club Coupe apart from other 911s. Additional features are some interior upgrades, a ducktail rear spoiler, and a set of 20 inch Sport Classic wheels.
