Please forgive me for featuring the same model in back-to-back weeks, but this is something I’ve never seen before that I wanted to dive into. We all know the new 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S is rather bonkers, and Porsche keeps giving us all the extra goodies to make it even that much better. Although for a very steep price as we are about to see.
This 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S is optioned with what Porsche is calling the “Lightweight Package.” What does that include? Well, you get thinner glass and sound deadening material, a 10mm lower suspension, a sport exhaust system, and most importantly, the carbon bucket seats. This is a big deal in the 911 Turbo world as I believe this is the first time you as a regular Joe could option the carbon buckets in the 911 Turbo. How much for all this? $10,340. Not exactly a big deal on a car that starts at $208,000 to begin with. It is also important to note that selecting this package deletes the electric steering column and rear seats as well. So if you are looking to build a GT2-esque example before we even are seeing spy shots of them, here is your chance.

For me, it is tough to compete with this car for anything under $300,000 right now. I know that is an insane statement saying “911 Turbo” and “$300,000” together, but welcome to 2022. This is as perfect as you are going to get out of a gasoline-powered street car right now in terms of performance, reliability, and most importantly, being able to live with it on a daily basis if you choose to.
My guess is this build was probably around $250,000 so this one, just like the blue one from last week, carries a hefty mark-up for having a few thousand miles. Worth it if you play in this league? Maybe. But I also think if you have $250,000 to spend, a Porsche dealer somewhere in the country will find you a build slot.
