A few months back I went over the pro and cons of a wood inside a modern Porsche 911 when I took a look at a 2006 Carrera S with the rare Makassar Package. What that meant is there was a significant amount of wood trim on much of the interior. Personally, I loved it as it was a nice change from the usual amount of leather covering almost everything. I even really embrace the wood because as long as it doesn’t crack, it wears much better than leather and isn’t subject to showing dirt nearly as easily. I must not be the only one who feels this way as the wood inserts didn’t stop when transitioning to the 991 chassis.
This 2013 C4S up for sale in New Jersey is finished in a lovely shade of Dark Blue Metallic with the factory aero kit. Inside, Yachting Blue leather, yes, Yachting Blue, covers almost everything and the car is also equipped with the Mahogany interior package. Porsche, Yachting, and Mahogany wood. Nothing like playing to your demographic.

I think this combination is really odd. On the outside you have the aggressive aero kit, but inside you have a bunch of wood trim. Even stranger, you have Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes as well that doesn’t seem like they make a ton of sense on a C4S. I have to wonder if someone custom ordered this car but it has a ton of other options that add up to nearly $145,000 when new. Dare I say this is a mullet car? Party on the outside, business on the inside? In all seriousness, I like the aero kit as well as the wood, but just not together. Maybe it is just me.
The price of $80,000 seems about in line given the mileage and options. With the way the 991 market is playing out, values seem to be tied more so to options even more so than in prior generations given how that swung the MSRP wildly when building this car. Some are actual game changers like the carbon ceramics. I think this one is going to take a very specific buyer who wants to look faster, but also loves wood and wants to row their own gears. I’d probably pass on this one personally.
