2014 Porsche 911 Carrera S

This 911 sold for $71,500.
I suppose anything can be a daily driver if you are brave enough, but some sports cars literally do offer enough comforts and practically in all areas that they can be used year-round. Case in point, the Porsche 911. I suppose since the start of the 911, you could be okay daily driving one as they aren’t all that harsh, nor unreliable like some of the stuff that came out of Italy in the past few decades. As the generations went on, this became even more or a possibility of it being your only car starting with the 964 chassis and in the introduction to all-wheel drive. Now 20 years later, you have some of the most advanced tech when it comes to car control and the only thing you really need is a set of decent snow tires. Wouldn’t you know, this is exactly what we have today.

This 2014 Carrera S up for sale outside of Chicago doesn’t even need the all-wheel drive of the C4, just a different set of wheels with some dedicated snow tires. Hey, if you can, why not?

This is a really interesting color combo of Sapphire Blue Metallic but it is paired with Luxor Beige and wood trim. Usually a sporty color like Sapphire always has black or grey, but someone went with the beige here and I think it looks a bit out of place. Even more so when matching the wood up to the bright blue. I wouldn’t turn it down, but it surely isn’t my first choice. As for the rest of the car, 24,000 miles for a 2014 with snow duty is awfully low, so my guess this was a garage queen before it came a snowmobile. The greater Chicago area is never a place to have just light snowfall, so good on this owner for braving the cold and ice in this thing. However, I’d wager that first generation Cayenne hiding in the background probably sees a fair share of snow duty as well. If it is running, of course.

The $71,500 price tag seems just a tag high, but nothing too crazy. Most of these cars are trading in the mid-60s, and can dip a little lower if they have some miles of them. I think this owner is banking on the color bringing a premium, but as much as that might, I think you’d lose some interest because of the interior. Either way, a cool example that I didn’t expect to see outside in the snow.

  1. If it had three pedals I would bid.

  2. Price is too high for a non sport-chrono pack car. 65K would be more in line with the market given miles and presentation.

  3. The taste in the last ten years has been to pair black with blues, even jewel-bright blues, which to eyes older than a millenial’s looks like an odd combination; beige used to be the go-to. I bet this man who chose this palette was used to that. I prefer it too.

  4. I agree with Brad, the blue and beige color combo looks nice to me, as well.

  5. I am with Brad. This is a classy color combo.

  6. I like the color combo, but the non-sport chrono will hold it back. Surprising not to see it on an S. When I was looking for my 997.2S, virtually every S had it.
