2001 Porsche 911 Turbo

Enough with high-dollar air-cooled Turbos and other rare 911s. They are wonderful machines, but let’s dip our toes back in the performance value end of the pool with this Rainforest Green Metallic 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo with Savannah Beige interior and 31,040 miles on it. In all of my time perusing the Porsche classifieds I cannot ever recall coming across a 996, let along a 996TT, in this color – or frankly in most any shade of green. We’ve remarked before how Green seems to be a persistently underappreciated color. That is especially true of any brighter shade of green; the closer the shade looks to black the more popular it tends to be. Rainforest Green appears to fall into a middle ground. It’s brighter than Forest Green and other similar dark examples, but obviously a far cry from some of Porsche’s pastel greens such as Viper Green or Lime Green. So we will have to see what sort of appeal this garners, but with its Savannah Beige interior it definitely has a feel of the forest about it. It is extremely earthy. For my tastes the exterior is very nice as I have no aversion to a green exterior. I would prefer one of the darker tan colors for the interior, but as I have said previously I think any of the tan interior choices complements a green exterior particularly well. While this one is not perfect, it would suit me better than many other applications.

While we may wonder about the appeal of the color palette with this 911, the appeal of a 996TT is very easy to comprehend. It’s supercar performance at mid-size sedan prices. Granted, we have (slowly) seen a rise in values for the 996TT as the market for an air-cooled Turbo becomes increasingly cost prohibitive and I think that is a trend we are going to see continue. We may still be a long way off from any kind of collector potential with these cars – outside of the GT3, GT3 RS, and GT2 – but prices are still such that the performance you get for the cost is nearly unmatched. For fans of the 996 design these make even more sense and this particular 996TT in a color we so rarely come across on a modern Porsche should make for both an interesting and captivating driver. All that’s left is to see if this auction can meet its reserve and where it might sell, but given the color and reasonable mileage I would expect a price in the mid- to upper-$40K. That’s higher than what we used to see with such machines, but still a stellar performance value.

  1. OMG! It has a REAR WINDSHIELD WIPER!!!!!

  2. Love the green, but wish the interior were not only a darker tan but it didn’t have the Porsche curse of very misguided monochrome.

  3. and GONE!….there are still 996TT values to be had…..I hope that people don’t ever catch on..LOL

  4. Love the green color; almost anything is better than the constant barrage of white, black and silver.

    As to the rear wiper, I had one on my ’99 Carrera 4 and found that for people who actually drive their cars, even in the rain, it is a very useful option.
