When is a “base” Porsche 911 good enough? The conundrum with the 991.2 911 is that while the base car, a twin-turbo 3.0L, is really good on its own, you have all the other models above it. And there are many. Carrera T, Carrera S, Carrera GTS, GT3, GT3 RS, GT2 RS, Speedster, Turbo, and Turbo S. Suddenly, at least on paper, the base model would seem inadequate. I’m here to tell you it is not. It is very much a pure 911 whether you get the PDK gearbox or the 7-speed manual, and the possibilities you gain by having that twin-turbo 3.0L are about endless in terms of making power. This 2007 up for sale in Texas is a perfect example why.

It is interesting to see a standard Carrera in paint-to-sample Stone Gray, but that isn’t a bad thing. I think a non-standard color like that is a great way to add some “specialness” to the base model in addition to ordering it with the 7-speed manual. Suddenly a model usually that is built to lease-spec is something that enthusiasts will take a second look at – which is exactly why I am here. If this was a black car with PDK, I’d scroll on by. But paint-to-sample and 7-speed? Thoughts of daily driving enter my head.
Sadly, it’s probably not a daily driver for me at nearly $79,000. I think the sweet sport will be in the low-$60,000 range before you can call it a value, as nearly $80,000 still buys a bunch of other special Porsches I’d rather have over this one. Still, maybe something to look forward too.
