1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

To many, there is no higher predator on the Porsche 911 food chain than the 1997 Turbo S. It was everything all packed into a single car. Only 182 examples made it to the US and they were all very expensive as you might of guessed. Most had a sticker price of over $150,000 in 1997, which in 2019 money is north of $240,000. After your tax and all that good stuff, you are out the door at nearly a quarter of a million dollars. That was more than a Ferrari F355 Berlinetta at the time, but its apples and oranges and you can see where values for both of these cars are at today. This example up for sale in Ohio is finished in Glacier White over Cashmere Beige leather interior and has just 7,700 miles on the odometer. The price? This or a two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan’s Upper East Side?

We have just added to our extensive exotic car inventory a beautiful 1997 911 Turbo S in Glacier White over Cashmere Beige with only 7,600 original miles. This Turbo S is loaded with: 6 Speed manual transmission, Porsche crest embossed in headrests, 8 way power heated seats with supple leather, full leather interior (nearly everything covered in leather from the door sills to the headliner), full interior carbon fiber package, carbon fiber and leather steering wheel, aluminum shifter and handbrake handles, leather tray under parking brake, black deviating stitching on the seats, door panels and dash, infrared security system, rare Nokia digital sound package, remote CD changer, rear wiper, Aerokit II body kit and spoiler, floor mats in black with Porsche logos, yellow brake calipers, metallized finish wheels and more.

Hard to argue against this one in terms of condition. Glacier White looks amazing on anything, but does really looks wonderful on the 993 body with the Turbo Twist wheels. I’m neutral on the Cashmere Beige interior, but the carbon fiber trim that is standard on the Turbo S makes up for it. Just under 7,700 miles is low for most cars, but this is far from the only example that is floating around with less than 10,000 miles on it. Buyers knew that these were going to be special and a bunch of them were stashed away for safe keeping. Did it pay off? Well.

The ask on this car is $595,000. Now this dealer is clearly shooting for the moon and probably knows someone isn’t paying that. The market is crazy on these cars, but not $600,000 crazy. At least not for this car. A Paint To Sample one with 9,000 miles sold for $395,000 last year and this Ocean Jade Metallic sold for $440,000 back when the market was screaming hot on everything aircooled. The market is getting just a tad soft on these cars but even a well used example is selling for $200,000. I think this is probably a $400,000-450,000 car as it sits today depending on if it needs anything. I do spy an aftermarket intercooler hose on this one, so someone has been inside this car at one point. Probably not helping its cause.

  1. Lol… two bedroom in UES? Maybe a studio somewhere in Brooklyn…

  2. @Marc C This place is on the edge of the UES where it meets East Harlem. Still under construction. 585 seems like a steal. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/122-E-102nd-St-Apt-4A_New-York_NY_10029_M38876-36082#photo0
