Grand Prix White has begun to grow on me. I know it’s somewhat of an iconic Porsche color, but white cars have generally left me feeling a little cold and they certainly aren’t something that is going to stand out in a crowd. I’m finding that opinion changing for me as I continue to come across white 911s that immediately draw my attention. I don’t want to get into cliches of good and evil, but there is something about these cars that looks very clean, very pure. And white certainly provides greater contrast from the trim pieces and other detail items. This will all go away once we get to summer and I begin craving brighter colors, but for now this Grand Prix White 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera, located in Florida, is hitting just the right note for me.

With some 3.2 Carreras nearing the same price point as a 993, we’re at a place where the 993 is becoming a nice relative value. This is true especially for low-mileage examples, since we can rest fairly secure in the knowledge that they will always command good value given their status as the last of the air-cooled 911s. There is nothing inherently special about this particular 993, it is simply a very good looking example of the standard car and there is nothing wrong with that. Collector status is probably a decade away, so in the meantime this can be enjoyed as it has enough miles on it already that adding more – within reason – shouldn’t harm its value too much. Bidding currently sits at $55,000 (though only 1 bid) on this no reserve auction so all that awaits now is for the new owner to grab the keys.
