Hard to believe we are here, or maybe not, but the best of the best 996 Porsche 911 Turbos are transacting for over $100,000. I suppose it was inevitable as rising tides lift all boats, but I didn’t see it coming this fast. Keep in mind I’m talking about the standard 996 Turbo, not the GT2 or GT3, as those are already well into their own categories of crazy growth. Still, would you take this over a classic 930 Turbo? I’m not sure.

As for today’s car, a 2001 up for sale in Miami, it surely doesn’t make any excuses. It’s Speed Yellow with black leather and the always nice carbon fiber trim with no cracks! That alone is a miracle in itself. Of course, the big thing here is that it has just 6,500 miles, which explains why it has an asking price of $127,000. Yeesh! I think if I was really in love with the 996 Turbo and wanted to buy the best example I’d probably wait for a later model car with the X50 package, or maybe even go GT2 if I could control myself and not put it into a tree. None the less, these crazy prices are here and I don’t think they are going anywhere. At least this one seems somewhat worth it, if you can believe that.
