1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

The end is near for 2019 and the decade as a whole, so I figured we might as well go out with one last bang. Only this bang comes in some wild shades of green and ironically requires enough green to buy that would knock your house down. This 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S is finished in Wimbledon Green Metallic over a Nephrite Green leather interior and needless to say, is one wild 911. I took a look at another 993 Turbo S a few months ago, from the same dealer no less, that was finished in Glacier White and had just 7,600 miles on it and was left wowed by that. This car? Almost certainly a 1 of 1 example given the colors. The miles? How does 532 sound? Total.

I’m almost at a loss for words with this one. First off, just 532 miles on this wonderful specimen, and it’s very rarely been seen in the wild. Also, only paying $1,917 for the Wimbledon Green Metallic paint and then to pair it with Nephrite Green leather for $481 might have been the greatest $2,398 ever spent when it comes to what this spec did for the asking price of this car. Now, Porsche might give you one of those color-matched keychains for $481, let alone an entire interior is a custom color.

$899,900. I know, I know, that is just the asking price. To say this dealer is a little optimistic would be an understatement, but that seems to be the game they play when it comes to listing cars.  I of course get the logic behind it, but I think every kind of knows this just isn’t a $900,000 car. I think if you took a very funny person’s old Mexico Blue 993 Turbo S and asked $900,000, you wouldn’t get any play on it at that level. Are people interested and want very badly to own this car? I think so. However, I also think anyone who is in a position to drop multiple six-figures on an old Porsche know that $900,000 isn’t anywhere close to what it will sell for. Still, a crazy example that hopefully finds a new home.

  1. Wowee……
    Now we are talking. That’s a stunning one-of-a-kind color combo.
    One of the dealer’s reason for the slightly high price: where are you going to find another one. He has a valid point.

  2. One time I saw an article on a guy who collected older porsches (can’t remember if they were 993s or 964s) with the goal of having one in ever color. He better get on this one before it gets away!

  3. I’d love to see the carfax on this car. There was a 993 Turbo S in this exact color combo at Prestige Porsche (Denver area) circa 1999-2000. It belonged to long time Porsche collector Bill Jackson.

  4. BAH! Nevermind, just saw the picture of the window sticker and it says “Prestige Porsche” right on it. Same car for sure! Crazy to think that it has barely accumulated any miles in the past 20 years since I saw it.
