While prices of the 996 generation have surely risen over the past two years, there are some good deals still out there if you want to make some compromises. Mainly those compromises would equate to accepting higher mileage, but if everything has been taken care of, it really is just a number. Today’s car, a 2003 911 Carrera coupe up for sale in beautiful Pompano Beach, Florida, surely has an attractive price but there are some thing you’ll have to accept if you take it home.

While Speed Yellow isn’t everyone’s favorite, I have no problem with it on 911s. I’d surely take it over a black car, and this example is no different. However, there are some things going on with this one. The first being it has nearly 195,000 miles. On any 911, I’d be wary and investigate pretty closely, but this one seems to be very well sorted with the all-important IMS bearing done. It also looks like it has a new clutch and a pile of other common service parts. Second, and most importantly, there were no one, not two, but three accidents in this car. Yes, it might be something minor, but insurance was involved in all three of them. Lastly, it has some really bad yellow trim sprinkled around the interior. Easy enough, throw that junk away.
So how much for all this baggage? A reasonable-sounding $23,500. We’ve seen some really crazy prices for some 996s of late, but this is still the best bang for your buck in 911 and probably will continue to be forever. I think if I had a budget of $25,000 I wouldn’t feel too bad about this one, but anymore than that I’d continue to look. Still, cool to see a very unique example.
