I personally regard the 991 generation Porsche 911 Turbo as the “cheat code” of the automotive world. Especially the Turbo S. It’s one thing to have a car do 0-60 runs in 2.6 seconds. It’s a whole other thing to have a car do 0-60 runs in 2.6 seconds and be totally comfortable doing so while being able to drive it 365 days a year. Not to mention it be reasonably reliable and won’t kill you in service costs. Where do I sign?

As you noticed, this is a paint-to-sample car finished in the legendary Gulf Blue with a little extra CXX surprise of Gulf Blue seat inserts and trim. Sometimes I think the Gulf livery gets played out with the orange, but this one has a perfect amount of flare without going too crazy. A reasonable 37,000 miles over the past seven years means this was maybe a daily driver, but certainly not a workhorse.
The asking price of $146,000 feels like it is the ballpark considering this is probably a 1-of-1 example with the paint and matching interior. I’d spring the extra couple grand to avoid buying a black over black one without a question and I think you’ll be rewarded down the line with people looking for cars that aren’t so plain. Maybe one day for me.
