As counter-intuitive as it might seem, Porsche made a bunch of automatic 911 Turbos. Specifically automatic 911 Turbo Cabriolets. Why? Well, that is what their buyers want. I know we are all dyed in the wool enthusiasts obsessed with heel toeing and nailing the perfect shift, but there are a lot middle-aged dentists out there who want a convertible Porsche to drive to the Daily Queen on Sunday evenings with their midsize dog in the back seat. Thus, we have a glut of 911 Turbo Cabriolets.

This example up for sale in West Palm Beach, Florida, a very fitting place for a Cabriolet, is actually a paint to sample color. Lapis Blue Metallic isn’t the craziest or most unique color ever, but it was Paint to Sample on the 997 Turbo. Naturally it has the Sand Beige Full leather interior to contrast the exterior and some other little goodies like Sport Chrono and white gauges. A handsome car without a doubt, but probably will leave potential buyers wanting more.
This one is priced at $73,500 and I’m not sure why. 997.1 Coupes with the more desirable 6-speed trade in the low $60,000 range pretty frequently with the Tiptronic cars even hitting the $50s. Yes, this one has under 30,000 miles, but a Tiptronic Cabriolet is about as low as you can go when it comes to an equipment discount on these cars. I don’t know what made the dealer price this one so high, but it probably is $10,000 too high. Another case of an overzealous dealer? Probably.
