Hard to believe we are coming up on 10 years since the launch of the 991 Porsche 911 chassis. Even though they are officially 2013 model years, production of them began in mid-2012 and they were called “The new 911 Carrera” because there were some leftover 997.2 Turbos that were still produced as 2013 model years. There were no GTS or GT2/GT3 cars for this model year, so if you wanted the best, you had to go with the Carrera S model. Naturally, some who really wanted the new 911 and all the toys that went with them really went all out, and this is an example of one of those cars.
This 2013 C2S up for sale in Syracuse, New York was loaded up with a paint-to-sample exterior, carbon-ceramic brakes, the sport suspension and exhaust system, adaptive sport seats, Burmester audio, and a whole other laundry list of options. How much? Base price on one of these when new was around $120,000, but this one came in just north of $160,000. I wonder if they traded it in on a GT3 the next year?

Specially ordered by the original owner, 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S in PTS Crème White over espresso natural leather interior.
This is one of Porsche’s most unique and classy color combinations. Pictures don’t do this car justice considering its paint to sample exterior color, original window sticker price of $160k and extensive list of options.
Below is just a sample of options that this 911 has:
PDCC with PASM Sport suspension, PDK transmission sport exhaust system with AWE switch path exhaust (factory exhaust available), PCCB, Porsche Dynamic Light System, Sport Chrono Package, glass sunroof, Burmester Sound System, Sport Design steering wheel, Premium package plus with adaptive 18-way sport seats, heated front seats with Porsche Crest in headrests, and full leather interior with Dev. Thread stitching (front & rear seats, dashboard, upper door trim, rear side panel, door center panel, armrest, and pull handles.) In addition the vehicle sports PPF on the full front, rockers and quarter panels.
This 991.1 makes a subtle statement and gives you that balance of classy and sporty.
Full-service history, and as new condition.

As crazy as they went with this one, they skimped on the X51 Powerkit as well as the factory Aerokit that would have pushed this one over $180,000. The paint-to-sample color Crème White was an interesting choice given how many colors of the rainbow Porsche lets you paint their cars, but I certainly don’t hate it. Inside, Expresso Natural leather was a fine choice to match the exterior, and they really checked a lot of boxes when it came to extended leather and deviated stitching. It has just 33,000 miles as well, which is rather low given how capable these were when launched.
We sit here with an asking price of $95,000 today which can be a hard pill to sallow considering other 2013 C2S examples sell for tens of thousands less. You certainly paying a premium on this one for the paint-to-sample color and carbon-ceramic brakes, but does anything else really carry all that much more of a premium? I would say not really, but I suppose you can make an argument either way. Probably not where I’d spend $95,000, but cool to see otherwise.
A really well spec’d car….but probably a 20k premium over others of that year or thereabouts. I think it is a tough sell, considering you can buy a nice GTS for that money. The problem with over spec’d cars is that it is hard to recover that money
In the current market, I’d call this one a buy at $89,900. It has a truly great selection of options, although I agree about the lack of the powerkit and aerokit. They also should have gone for the clear rear taillights. Put some Fuchs style wheels (in black with the silver lip) on this bad boy and you’re rolling in style.
EBay is not the best platform for a 911. On Bring A Trailer, Pcar or Cars and Bids iI think it would get pretty close to the asking price with maybe only the lack of manual transmission holding it back. As the 991.1 was the last of the NA Carreras this is the newest NA 911 platform without going GT3. Interestingly 2 years ago this was maybe a $60k car, many were in the 50s.
Lol, where’d the epic (and justified) rant against Carvana go?
yeah, where did it go? it needed to be said. and today we have this: https://www.theverge.com/22923871/carvana-pandemic-used-car-prices-sold-online-chip-shortage
Hey guys, we chatted about it behind the scenes and decided it was off-topic for the site, as we want to concentrate of the cars to buy and neat examples that come to market.
alright. it’s your site but, personal experience combined with industry knowledge is good content. it might not go in your main thread of car posts but it has value and you have plenty of space in your nav… 🙂
