2001 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe

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.

  1. For that money? A 996 GT3. Not a TT. PERHAPS a TT-S, which is obtainable for about that figure.

  2. These prices are crazy. They are great cars but Porsche made so many of them they cannot be considered rare. I understand the GT3 and GT2 being more highly valued due to their limited production and being Motorsport products. 2 years ago a low mile turbo was a $60k car. Why are they now worth 2x that value? Again,

  3. I agree…insane price for that car…I would buy a 997 Turbo for that money. the low miles are irrelevant if you intend to buy the car. For 130K, you could get a reasonably low mile 997 Turbo….or as you suggest a classic 930 Turbo…and a pretty nice one.

  4. Um, total 996 GT production was 7,181 units. Total 996 Turbo manual coupe production was only 7,019 units.

    Before you start screaming about exactly how many of those PCNA imported look at the calendar: these cars are all about to turn 25 and when they do all ROW VS PCNA bets are off.

    Bottom line the manual coupe Turbo is rarer in 996 form than the GT’s

    Deal with it now, because in only a few more years the market eventually will
