2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S

Maybe just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Porsche’s paint-to-sample and Exclusive options programs has given us some real gems over the year, but every once in a while we get some real odd balls. Today’s 2008 911 C2S is bordering on that. This 997.1 is finished in the same green as the GT3 RS which isn’t the worst thing ever, but it is what happens on the inside that takes it to the limit in my eyes. Wait until you see for yourself.

I give this credit, they love to take on some really wild Porsches. Like mentioned, I don’t have a problem with the exterior green, but they went overboard with the green on the inside. I really enjoyed painted center consoles, but once you get into painted air vents and door handles, it looks like you went down to Pep Boys for some spray paint and just started blasting whatever you could find on the interior. The car isn’t short on modifications either too with Ohlins coilovers, Champion Motorsports wheels, carbon air box system, Tubi-style mufflers, and on and on. Whoever owned this car really loved it, or maybe just loved buying every single thing they could find for it and then some.

Sadly, that doesn’t bode well for maximizing your resale value. $75,000 is a very large number for a 997.1 C2S, even with all the factory options. That price is buys a whole lot of 997.2 cars, even GTS, and if you look hard enough, a 997.1 GT3. The crazy thing is, this car had the same sticker price when new as a 2007 GT3 of $117,000, and now the expectation is a $75,000? I don’t think. Especially not with those worn climate control buttons.

  1. What an absolutely LUDICROUS price for a 997.1 Carrera S. A REAL 997.1 GT3 w/45k miles just sold on pcar market for $71,662 inc fee.

    If this were black it would be a $45-50k car. Maybe the green adds 10%? But really, how many people want a green Carrera S? People looking to spend stupid money on a regular 997s already have the 997.2 GTS, no need to add another.

  2. I just don’t understand how dealers like this stay in business. We spend an insane amount of time making sure our inventory is priced at market value. That still doesn’t stop every Tom Dick and Harry asking for ludicrous discounts. And we aren’t selling 10 year old Kia’s. Blows my mind. Couldn’t agree with you more on that interior. It is FUG-LY!
