2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S

In terms of contrast between the 997.1 Porsche 911 Turbo and the 997.2 Porsche 911 Turbo, it is very clear – at least when it comes to comparing the cars with the gearboxes that only have two pedals. A few days ago we looked at the 997.1, it has a regular five-speed automatic transaxle with a traditional torque converter. It is slow, it is soft, and it sucks a lot of power. However the clouds cleared once the 997.2 came around and the Tiptronic box was replaced by the snappy seven-speed PDK gearbox. All of a sudden it isn’t a penalty to only have two pedals in the footwell; the 6-speed cars physically can’t shift faster than the PDK car. Yes, I know it isn’t all about 0-60 times and being the fastest, but PDK was a game changer for the 911 Turbo. Even better when talking about a 997.2 Turbo S, which is what we have up for sale today.

Even at 10-years old, this 997 Turbo S is not a car to take lightly at all. With some warm tires and nice road, you can hit 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. Let me say that again. A 2011 911 Turbo S will do a 0-60 time in 2.9 seconds. Car and Driver called it “one of the grand experiences in motoring today”, and this is on a car you drive 365 days a year without issue. Can you tell I’m a fan?

This example up in Alabama is finished in another paint-to-sample color of Atlas Grey Metallic and inside you are hit with Brown Natural leather. A color combo not for everyone, but if you are going big with the Turbo S, black over black just seems unworthy. This example was loaded up to a $175,000 sticker price, and now with just under 10,000 miles it can be had for $163,997. Not much of a discount at all, and I’m not sure why. A Guards Red car with just 4k miles sold for $122,000 a few weeks ago, and then was followed up by a Speed Yellow example for $127,000. I don’t think the paint to sample here is adding any value at all as it is just Atlas Grey and not something super rare, but maybe this dealer is just swinging for the fences. So while an amazing car, in my eyes it’s a not-so-amazing price.

  1. The 997.2 turbo S is an amazing car. It traps the quarter mile at just under 130 mph. That is ridiculously fast even 10 years later. Undoubtedly helped by the PDK, I still wish they made a manual version of the S.
