2019 Porsche 911 Speedster

One thing I didn’t see coming was how popular the 991 Speedster would be and what it would do to their values. Even with them producing 1,943 examples for the world, most are still trading at around sticker price or slightly more. That is a big deal considering the base price was $275,000 and most were optioned out heavily to over $300,000 and then some. That is a lot of money for basically a GT3 with the roof cut off and some nasty blind spots when the fabric roof is folded up. Still, these are hot and people are gladly paying.

This example up for sale in Chicago is finished in one of my favorite colors, Amethyst Metallic, which is a very deep purple color that can pass as black in anything less than direct light. It is the perfect way to have a nice color, but not scream it like some of the other purples or Rubystone offers. The privilege having this paint-to-sample shade ran a cool $12,830, but when you are paying $300,000 for a car, what is another $13,000? This one actually has 2,600 miles on it, but that doesn’t mean you are getting a good deal. Nope, not a good deal at all.

Despite having a sticker price of $305,000, this one has an ask of $400,000 right now. At first you might seem like that is a crazy number, but there is some data that says this is what a paint-to-sample car might transact for. I do think the price is high and the selling dealer is shooting for the money, but this is probably the only Amethyst Speedster in the US. No word if they’ll be able to make a 992 Speedster given the way the body is setup, but it might be awhile for those even if they do produce them. Still, you wouldn’t catch me dead paying $400,000 for one of these cars, but I guess those people are out there.

  1. Where is the engine?

    Why does it look like the engine compartment is sunken with with purple carpet?

    wow…I guess if you really want the only Amethyst Speedster, this is what you must pay…for a lot lot less, I would buy a new Turbo S…maybe even a PTS Turbo S…

  3. @jim – I’d agree with you except that you can’t just go to your local showroom and buy a turbo or turbo s right now. Most dealers are quoting 1 to 2 years of lead time on pretty much any new 911. Dealers like Champion (who I think is the largest in the country) won’t even sell to you if you’re out of their geographic market and a number of dealers are even charging 5 figures just to get an allocation. But agree – I’d still rather have the new-generation Turbo Cab at half the cost even if it means a long wait.

  4. I am not a cab guy at all but I do think the Speedster is the best one yet. Earlier versions (G body, 964) were ugly and underpowered. I liked the 997 version but it had the same engine as a Carrera X51/GTS. Not this one: GT3 drivetrain. And it is a manual not a PDK. I do think $400k is crazy money but the Porsche market is on fire right now. I say give it a few months or a year and this will be selling below MSRP.

  5. Is the Porsche supply shortage due to the chip shortage? Or something else?

  6. This is what you’ll pay if you need the exclusivity of a true one of one unicorn. Pretty sure history will say such rare cars will only go up.
