2005 Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupe

I love the 996 Porsche 911, right up to the point where the amount you pay for one can buy another 911 that is much more appealing to me. As the years go on, that seems to happen more and more. Today’s car, a 2005 911 Turbo S, is one of those. On paper, the best 996 out of the widow making GT2 or hard-as-nails GT3. For a long time, they seemed like a reasonable buy, but in 2022? How does a six-figure pricetag sound?

This is a pretty loaded-up example with the Aerokit, heated front sport seats, the sport shifter, a thicker steering wheel, and navigation. It added up to a 2005 sticker price of $144,000, but that still was a far cry from the GT2, which started at around $185,000. It has a reasonable amount of miles at 31,000, but what isn’t reasonable is the asking price.

I did some digging and found the asking price today is $140,000. That is a tough look seeing as one with the same amount of miles just sold for $118,000 less than a month ago. Granted, this is the same dealer who had the really high price on the 991 GTS, so this shouldn’t be a surprised to anyone. Maybe this is just a heads-up to keep an eye out for these for a reasonable price. It might be worth your while.

    I had a 2003 X50 Turbo, and wasn’t that impressed. The car was fast, sure, but the handling was sloppy–the suspension couldn’t keep up with the rest of the chassis. And this is coming from somebody that loves the 996 GT3/Cup cars.

    I love 996s and have owned a few including a modded turbo, but I think a GT3 is the one to get. 996 Turbos were underpriced for years but now, like most things, they seem overpriced. To me a nice 996 turbo is worth $50k and a nice Turbo S maybe worth $80k.

    $140K for this from a time when Porsche was cutting costs to stay alive, or a brand new nicely equipped Carrera or even Carrera S, also with twin turbochargers and leagues better build quality…not a tough decision.
