1997 Porsche 911 Turbo

You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts. Here we have a paint-to-sample Riviera Blue 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Montreal, with 21,465 miles on it. It is beautiful and head-turning in a way that only a pastel colored 993TT can be. It’s stunning. It also has an asking price that is more than $349,000! It’s a reserve auction so we do not know exactly what that asking price might be, but since the seller has set the starting bid at $349,000 then we know it is above that number. Yeah. This isn’t the craziest asking price I’ve come across on a 993 and if you were ever going to set your price in the stratosphere, then a Riviera Blue Turbo is just the sort of car to attract the right kind of attention. Still, it’s too high, but everyone needs a little insanity in their life now and then.

Recently, we saw this Ocean Jade Metallic Turbo S sell for $440K and that gives us some idea of the heights a 993 Turbo is capable of reaching. We know that within this crazy market rare pastel-colored air-cooled 911 Turbos are some of the best bets for those looking to make the most on their investment. But that Turbo S was a spectacular car that sold for a significant premium even for a Turbo S so when a standard Turbo begins to encroach upon that sort of territory, then there’s a problem. With a price this high, there’s almost no appreciation to be found without waiting a very long time and even then there’s significant risk. Not surprisingly, I don’t expect this 993TT to sell anytime soon at this price, and perhaps the seller knows that, so for now this will remain eye candy. It’s a hell of a looker though!
