The 997.1 Porsche 911 is probably my favorite “budget” 911. I wish I could put “budget” in size 82 font quotation marks given we are talking Porsche here, but in the grand scheme of things where a new base 992 C2 is $100,000, your buck doesn’t go very far these days. Now you are probably saying, “What about the 996?” And yes, you are right. But given the very small price difference between the 996 and 997.1, I think it is the perfect sweet spot of having a modern 911 without spending over $50,000 just to get a seat at the table. Today’s 997 has my favorite Lobster Fork wheels and isn’t a boring color. There’s only one problem though – the transmission.

Yes, this a Tiptronic car. I know, I know, but hear me out. If you are a person who constantly sits in traffic, maybe the 405 in Los Angeles or Boston, but still want your 911, this isn’t a terrible idea. If you wanted a PDK car, a 997.2 is probably putting you close to $50,000. This example? $32,000. Now I do think this example is a little pricey given it has almost no options and has 71k miles, but under $30,000 is probably not a bad deal. We are at the low water mark for the 997, so you are only killing value the more you drive it. Just something to think about.
