Oh my lord this is everything. Here we have an Arctic Silver Metallic 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S, located in New York, with Boxster Red interior and a mere 2,544 miles on it. Do I wish the exterior were something other than silver? Maybe, yes. However, Arctic Silver is a pretty nice variant of the color and the contrast it presents with the Boxster Red interior works so incredibly well that I almost don’t mind it’s a silver car. On the 993 Turbo S the color works quite well anyway.
There were only 345 examples of the Turbo S built in total and they provide the best combination Porsche could offer at the time in terms of performance and luxury. 430 hp was propelled to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. Larger disc brakes with the now well known yellow calipers provided restraint for those extra horses and the revised Aerokit helped keep the wheels planted. They are exquisite looking cars and, of course, the last of the air-cooled 911 Turbos. Naturally, that makes them quite highly sought after.

I usually complain when a seller provides us with virtually no description, but this is one of those cases where I don’t mind. I can almost hear the seller saying, “Just shut up and look at it.” They’re letting the car speak for itself and it does a heck of a job. Of course, you are going to want to ask the usual questions about available history and documentation and presumably all of that will be available. But on appearance alone this Turbo S is immaculate in a way that perhaps only new cars can rival. The details simply are exquisite and I think many of us could spend a good deal of time simply appreciating all of those details.
Is it worth more than $600K? I have no idea. There aren’t any recent auctions of a Turbo S that suggest to me that sort of price is realistic, but I also haven’t seen one with only 2,500 miles on it. So you never know. After all someone decided to pay $3.4 million for Porsche’s one-off reproduction of a 993 Turbo so I guess relatively speaking this is pretty cheap!
