When Porsche launched the next-generation 992 Turbo S last year, most had a hard time believing the numbers it was pulling down. I know we really don’t live our daily lives in 0-60 times, but when that number is quicker than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, you think about things a little differently. The car is that fast. It is still the same basic shape as the 911 Turbo has been for the past 20 years, still uses a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six, but now can do a quarter-mile run in 10.1 seconds. Remember when 10 second quarter mile times were reserved for dedicated drag racers? All this for a starting price of $208,000. It should be illegal to sell a car this fast for that amount of money.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you can actually buy one at that price. Today’s car, a 2021 Turbo S coupe is finished in a wonderful paint-to-sample color of Club Blue, only carried out around $30,000 in options. I say only, because it is very easy to click way over $50,000 in options on the configurator at 1 a.m. in your underwear before bed. However, actually paying sticker price isn’t going to happen just yet.

Most 992 Turbos are finished in rather bland and non-remarkable colors, which is why I held off on featuring one. However, once this Club Blue car popped up, I figured now is a good a time as any. Inside, the color combo isn’t my favorite, but the black leather with the Chalk inserts seem to be chosen on a lot of these 992 Turbos. Personally, I would have sprung for the all-black leather or maybe even asked for CXX houndstooth inserts like we saw on the 911 50th Anniversary edition.
As for the price, this one has an ask of $300,000. Remember that these are selling for over sticker, but there are comps out there for other paint-to-sample cars with no miles selling for less. Doing some rough math, whoever first paid for this car probably was around $255,000 all-in considering a conservative 7% sales tax and some other dealer fees. I would use that as my basis here, but looking at what that Olive Green car sold for, there’s not a lot of meat left on the bone if it doesn’t sell for $300,000. So while a fun car with mind-blowing performance numbers, cashing in on them isn’t as easy as it seems.
