Almost any time I step away from the air-cooled 911 market to look at another Porsche I experience a brief moment of surprise about the value available. It’s the case even when all I’ve done is look at water-cooled 911s. Granted, the one we see here, a Black 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe with Red leather interior, manual transmission and just 9,715 miles on it, is up for a reserve auction so it is possible the dealer will be asking too much and our sense of value might diminish. But experience tells me that’s rarely the case with the 997 and even if it is I would hardly expect bidding to go crazy. So what we have is a really attractive, and excellent performing, sport coupé that should be attainable for a decent price. This 911 won’t have the value upside of an air-cooled model, but we all need something to actually drive right?

I have two somewhat divergent tastes when it comes to car color. I really like black cars and I really like bright orange or blue. One is stealth the other is (very much) not. In the world of black cars they’ve set this one up quite well. Pairing black wheels with a black exterior can sometimes work and sometimes it can look like you’re driving on four spare wheels. Here it works – really well I think. The polished lip helps, but the wheel design is such that the black wheel isn’t overbearing. Moving into the interior the red leather looks fantastic. It’s not overly ostentatious and when contrasted with the black exterior it provides a nice touch of brightness. As an overall package I’m a big fan. Outside of appearance, this 911 is a 6-speed manual, the mileage is very low, and it’s a Carrera S, which means 355 hp directed to the rear wheels. All good things. Even with that low mileage we’ll still want to see maintenance records so we know it’s been cared for and hopefully such records will be available. Bidding seems pretty reasonable right now sitting at $37,100. I suspect that’s going to have to come up a bit (probably into the $50s), but by the end it should still make for a good deal of modern performance at a pretty reasonable cost.
Personally I do not like black wheels. I think it will keep the selling price low on this one.
They are asking $59,995 on their web site
Love the colors, I would prefer brighter wheels.
“The red leather isn’t overly ostentatious…”
Compared to what? A chrome interior? Actual blood dripping off the roof? Holy moly!
Well, for starters compared to this: https://germancarsforsaleblog.com/1977-porsche-930-turbo-carrera-4/
It’s Porsche, a basic red interior doesn’t really blip the ostentation radar.
