Well, we knew this day would come sooner or later. The 996 Porsche 911 Turbo is now selling for over $100,000. A few weeks ago we saw a 2005 sell for $104,000, which surely shocked a few people who follow the 996 Turbo market. Yes, that car probably sold for more than what is it worth, but it was a very rare Turbo S coupe with low miles, a handful of modifications, and good service history. A Rising tides lifts all boats? Not so fast. There are always market outliers, and usually for good reason. This 2004 911 Turbo with the X50 Performance Package up for sale in Miami sure seems like it wants to be one of the outliers as well.

Just to sum this one up, this was a heavily optioned car. The X50 package was nearly $18,000, and then it is a long list of carbon fiber trim, special stitching, some extra leather, and the Sport Techno wheels for $2,000. While all this is really nice, the big thing here is just 22,000 miles and it looks every part of it. Sounds great, right?
The selling dealer wants bidding to start at $105,000 for this one. That’s optimistic to say the least. I’m sure this dealer saw that Turbo S sell for $104,000, but he doesn’t seem to be understanding that a Turbo is a not a Turbo S, even with the X50 package. The Turbo S is much more exclusive with just 186 coupes coming to North America, while the X50 was a mere check of the option box when ordering a car. Not to mention the Turbo S is standard with carbon-ceramic brakes, while those are extremely rare on the Turbo. So while this is a really nice example, I don’t think its north of $100,000 today.
The problem with these cars becoming 100K cars is that, suddenly, a buyer is forced to examine this car in relation to others in the same price range. A 996 turbo was a good deal in the 50k range because it offered a better experience than many other cars at that price point. At 100K, too many better cars exist. For example, I’d much rather have a cayman GT4 for this price.
I agree with Mr K ..and of course at 100k, one can buy a 997 Turbo, which is a much better car.
