2019 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS

I have to hand it to Porsche, they really nailed it when it came to their GTS trim line on the 911. It slotted in perfectly between the S and GT cars for those buyers who wanted more, but didn’t want to pay GT prices or live with the harshness they can dish out. When they launched the 991.2 C4 GTS, it sure seemed like it was knocking on the door of the GT3. The new twin-turbo 3.0L with the PDK gearbox could whip it to 60 mph is just 3.3 seconds. That is just .1 second slower than the 991.1 GT3. Seems like a heck of a value at a $135,000 base price back when these were new. Even better, you could get it with the 7-speed manual gearbox. What isn’t to like?

This vehicle is proudly offered by Porsche Gold Coast, an Exclusive Manufaktur Partner, Porsche Classic Partner & Authorized Porsche Dealer, Located on Long Island New York.

This 991.2 Targa up for sale in Long Island isn’t short on goodies. Paint-to-sample Mint Green, rear axle steering, Premium Package Plus, deviated stitching, LED headlights, and on and on. A cheap car this was not, as it had a base price of $140,000, then nearly another $40,000 in options alone. I know it isn’t all about math alone with it comes to cars at this price level, but just to compare, a 2019 GT3 started at $145,000, and a GT3 RS was right around $190,000. Granted, you couldn’t get it in a open top, and the Speedster was impossible to get and now we know stickered for over $300,000. What is interesting is what this dealer is asking after this car has done over 5,000 miles.

The Buy It Now price is $179,300, which is exactly what the sticker price was. Bold strategy by the dealer. You can see they aren’t too proud of this fact as they crudely removed the original price from the build sheet as to hope potential buyers are too oblivious to actually ask or look up what this car sold for new. I think the GTS is a great car and a perfect option for lots of people who want the perfect 911 for all occasions, but selling at sticker is a bit of a reach at this point. Even with the cool color.

  1. Laughable price. In today’s market, you can get a PTS 991.2 GT3 with low miles for less than the price of this car. This needs to be under 160k to make sense to most buyers.

  2. Targas…..oh boy. At one time they were the right answer for someone who wanted 80% of the top down experience, for only 30% of the increased price over a coupe, and 90% less complicated to fix than a cabrio.

    Then Germans started doing what they do best: overly complicated solutions to small problems that will be a nightmare when the cars are out of warranty.

    Just watch the video of the targa top mechanism if you have never seen it. I’ve seen this many times in person, and each time it fascinates me and scares me.

  3. Fully agree with Christian….I don’t even want to think what would happen if that top fails. Unnecessarily over engineered. I do like the glass portion of the roof though. Maybe if they had made it a manually removable top it would have been perfect

    Regardless this price is nuts hats off to the first owner though for spec’ing this out

  4. That’s my dream color on a Porsche. I love this car the way it is,
    except the manual transmission. The PDK is perfect and definitely my choice of transmission in an modern Porsche.

  5. Just saw that this car is still on ebay. Looks like my price assessment was correct – their current BIN is 159.9K
