1994 Porsche 911 Speedster

What happens when a rare color doesn’t seem so rare? Or at least it isn’t a color that we would expect to be very rare. That is the peculiar situation in which we find this Polar Silver 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster, located in Miami. These days coming across a Silver Porsche or Mercedes is a daily occurrence, but the presence of the color wasn’t always so ubiquitous. Still, it is difficult to think of Silver as possessing a degree of rarity, even if it is a particular shade of Silver, in this case Polar Silver which does have a lot of fans, but that appears to be exactly the case with the 1994 911 Speedster. With a purported 5 produced in total in this color that makes this a rare find of an already rare production vehicle. The question, of course, is how much does the market care? Really striking rare colors, especially pastel colors, tend to command a premium all else being equal, but can Polar Silver see the same results? The auction of this car should help us in that regard.

I’m fairly certain I’ve seen this car for sale for a while now so the market clearly has not accepted this asking price as representing the going rate. The painted wheels probably aren’t helping, but I can’t imagine they would discourage too many buyers given the value of a Speedster in general. That said, as I noted above, Polar Silver has its fans and it is a striking variant of the shade given the way its hints of blue shift the color in sunlight and in shade. So this may be a case of waiting for the right buyer to come along.

    Black wheels are “stock and original” in 1994?

    They were not stock… All the speedsters came with body colored wheels. The no cost option was to have the wheels in standard silver. Those seats were also off the options list. The standard seats where the Recaro Pole Position with the Porsche label. Standard Porsche “comfort Seats” could have been ordered as a no cost option but not the sports seats show. None the less there are very very few silver 94 Speedsters. I had a white one with the Porsche labeled Recaros and silver wheels. Oh how I loved that car right up until it was stolen from my garage.

    I thought the Speedster was the holy grail, back then. If you are an investor, so be it. Not worth it to me. I don’t buy into new beetles and I don’t buy into also rans unless there is something real to be had. I’ll take an RS America long before a Speedster thank you. Excuse me for being snippy, please.

    The speedster was unloved back then. I paid $51k for it in 95 with 6000 miles on it. I had it for sale in 1997 and the best offers I was getting were in the 30’s with 16k miles on it. It was stolen out of my garage. USAA paid me $51k for it. The 94 speedster is lower production car than the RSA and clearly more coveted now. I also had an RSA in 99. I paid 36 with 36k miles and I sold it in 2000 with 42k for $36. You missed the boat if you are looking at Speedster or a RSA as an investment.

    What does a new beetle have to do with anything?

    @Howard S – Apologies if you took my response as being directed at you, I was commenting on the Speedster in general, not you. I am not an investor in cars, I only drive them.

    My reference to the beetle was because it has been reintroduced, much the way the Speedster was reintroduced IMO. There are other makers that have attempted to recapture the spirit of a previous model as well.

    I’ve been back and forth to sell or not to sell my RSA. Bought it 10 years ago with 25K miles for $42k. In the past 5 years I have driven it less than a total of 1,000 miles, and currently it’s appraised at $150k with 49k miles.
    Since I don’t drive it much, recently had to spend $6,000 to replace a bunch of parts for the AC system. Now I know why so many sellers mention that the car for sale only needs an AC re-charge. Probably needs a large financial investment.
