2003 Porsche 911 Turbo X50

The 996 Turbo occupied a strange area of value in the Porsche world for a bit, though it generally seems like the market caught on. And its no wonder; the 996TT not only offers supercar levels of performance in a package which can exploit it, the macho looks overwhelm the uninspired headlights, and the Turbo motor doesn’t have the same IMS worries that the normally aspirated models have you worried about. On top of that, this particular car has the X50 performance package – a desirable option, with K24 turbos, a re-mapped ECU and GT2 intercoolers added to the 3.6 liter flat-6 netting 444 horsepower. This is mated to a 6-speed manual, too. And if you hadn’t noticed somehow, it’s a pretty special color – Speed Yellow – but following up on Andrew’s W111 this one has a very unusual and unexpected interior. If the great package, great options, and unusual color combination weren’t enough, this 2003 Turbo has just 8,500 miles on it. The price? Hang on to your fried eggs and wait until you see that interior:

I have a hard time understanding the person who went into the dealership when new and thought ‘Yea, that’s the color combination for me on my $140,000 Porsche!’. Were they Brazilian? The Nephrite Green is very cool and I think would look great…say, in a black car perhaps. But it’s so over-the-top here it somehow almost works, pulled together by the yellow seatbelts and contrasting stitching. And somehow that all-green interior makes the 996 dashboard look much better than the all-tan or all-grey versions. One thing is for sure – if you want to stand apart in the 911 world, you definitely will be noticed in this car and you will certainly not see another like this one. With ultra-low mileage, condition is expected to be perfect and I can’t find much to fault here.

Does all this equate to $93,000 in today’s market? Gosh that’s a tough pill to swallow. That’s literally more than what a GT2 sold for earlier this year on Bring a Trailer and almost $20,000 more than what a similar mileage X50 sold for last year. I don’t fault the dealer for aiming for the stars on this one because it’s obviously a pretty unique example, but I think that will also hold it back from being sold at a market-busting price too.

  1. Thank goodness that car is rare.

  2. Cut the price by $90,000 and I would consider this vehicle. Clearly the color combination is the issue.

  3. Seriously. It’s mustard and relish, only acceptable on hot dogs

  4. Yellow is a “discount” color, not a plus up. Especially Speed Yellow vs a PTS. See Amelia results this year if you have doubts.

  5. I don’t mind the yellow color but if I was spending $90k on something my 1st choice wouldn’t be a Porsche.
