1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

It’s time for another blue Porsche. This time a different shade – a much more vibrant shade – on a different model and, likely, at a different price point. Yesterday’s Glacier Blue 911SC, through its icy character, showed us a subtle side of blue that even under certain light looked almost white. It’s a winter scene on a car. Today’s example, a Cobalt Blue Metallic 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe located in Chicago, doesn’t possess the subtlety of Glacier Blue, but rather stands out with a striking brightness that will not fail to be mistaken for any other shade, whether in the light or the dark. And this one is draped over the then-new design of the 964, a model whose standard variants, such as this Carrera 2, seem to be slowly gaining momentum though still lag somewhat behind both their predecessors and successors. For fans of the 964, or even just the 911 in general, this should make for an attractive option in a more modern design than the classic 911, but while foregoing 993 prices.

For a 911 that the seller states has been priced based on its “superior condition” we definitely are in need of better photos and a wider variety of photos. I’m sure the seller can send them to interested parties, but still our first impression comes from the ad and a price point that is on the higher end of the 964 market at this mileage. I suspect some may move on prior to further investigation. What we see looks in good shape, though we have so little to go on with regard to the interior that we are left guessing. I do think this 964 is worth further investigation so hopefully these basic issues can be resolved with a phone call. With regard to price, the BIN price has already come down since its initial listing so it seems we are dealing with a seller that is willing to work out a reasonable price. Also, this is a no reserve auction so regardless of the BIN price it can be had lower than that ask, not significantly lower but lower nonetheless. For a very attractive 911 in good shape there seems a lot of promise here.

    Been looking at 964s as 993s have just gotten out of hand and I want to add a coupe to my lineup.
    If this car were $40k or less, I’d BIN.
    But, over $50k, is in 3.2 territory.

    Thats the price of a good 964 these days. They’re selling for more than G50 3.2 Carreras

    Maybe it is an error in the listing, but that car isn’t $51,900, it’s $151,900!

    The seller represents it as a concours level car, but a concours car will lose points for not having the right brake calipers (look like 993 turbo units and the wrong color), as well as numerous other small faults. It’s also funny that a “concours” car clearly has dirty wheels in one photo.

    That’s way above market, and will buy a 993 turbo or a good buy on a 964 Turbo 3.6.

    I agree with TM, this is a ridiculous price to ask for an early year C2 with over 70,000 miles. There is nothing rare or concours about this car to justify the price.

    In speaking with the seller. He added $100k to the eBay listing when he took a deposit on the car from another site. He didnt want to kill the eBay listing if the deal fell through. This way he could set the price back to the about $50k price on eBay if the deal fell through and not have to pay to relist the car.

    I believe it sold around $50k give or take a grand or two
