2011 Porsche 911 Targa 4

I’ve mentioned this before – but unless you have a keen eye, the 993, 996, and 997 Targa models don’t exactly scream “Hey, I’m a Targa!”. They all used very complex glass roofs with a hatchback-style piece that can be helpful in some situations. Still, these models have a far contrast to the return of the Targa panel that we saw with the 991. For the 997 chassis, all the Targa cars were built on the Carrera 4 body, which of course meant all were all-wheel drive. Just 1,760 were produced worldwide, with only 800 coming to America. This 2011 Targa 4 up for sale outside of Philadelphia is finished in the wonderful color of Racing Green Metallic over a Sand Beige interior; however, it is not cheap.

2001 Porsche 911 GT2 Clubsport

If you thought the 996 Porsche 911 GT2 was the final boss as one of the last “windowmaker” 911s, let me introduce the 911 GT2 Clubsport. Just 70 Clubsport-optioned 996 GT2s were produced, all for Europe, and were equipped with a roll cage, Recaro racing seats with six-point harnesses, a fire extinguisher, and a battery cut-off switch. Basically, this was a track-ready example without all the work of sourcing the parts. This one made its way to the US via a lengthy by renowned specialists JK Technologies of Baltimore, and is now up for sale in everyone’s favorite playground: Miami, Florida.

1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GTS Clubsport

One of the more surprising models ever to leave Stuttgart was the 924 Carrera GTS Clubsport. Yes, Porsche made a track-ready racer 924 that was originally destined as a homologation model for FIA Group 4 racing. It was a 924 Turbo with aluminum body panels, 16″ Fuchs wheels, 930 Turbo-style brakes, Bilstein coilover suspension, an integrated roll cage, plastic window treatments, 935-style seats, and a fire suppression bottle. Also it looked really menacing compared to the standard 924 Turbo. Only 15 road-legal cars were produced, which puts this in the rarest of the rare category when talking about the special cars from Porsche. Today, we happen to have one for sale up for sale in Miami with a crazy 37,000 miles on the odometer. Although that maybe isn’t so crazy after I tell you the price.

2012 Porsche Cayman R

The Cayman R was basically the same recipe as some of the special edition Boxsters, like the RS60 and especially the Spyder. Basically; the company lopped a few pounds (just over 100) off, added 10 horsepower to 330, some really cool wheels, stiffer and lower suspension, and slightly improved aerodynamics thanks to a raised rear spoiler. It was not the all-out track weapon that the GT4 is intended to be, but it was a notable improvement on the standard car. And while these were far from cheap when new (with a nearly $70,000 sticker price quickly augmented by options), the limited production and nature of anything from Porsche with an ‘R’ on it meant that collectors saw these coming as soon as they hit showrooms, and they’re not really any cheaper today…in fact, quite the opposite. Let’s take a look at this Peridot Metallic example:

2007 Porsche 911 Turbo

One of the cars that seems to have turned the corner in terms of its valve bottoming out and is now on a rise is the 997 Porsche 911 Turbo. It seems for a handful of years these hung out well under $100,000, but never down under $50,000 like the previous generation 996 did. Everyone knew they were fine cars, but most preferred the facelift 997.2 for the upgraded looks, equipment, and addition of the PDK gearbox in place of the outdated Tiptronic box. However, it is now 2021 and everyone is going crazy for good used sports cars, so here we are.

This 2007 911 Turbo up for sale in Miami thankfully has the six-speed manual gearbox and is finished in a very sublime color combo of Lapis Blue over an Ocean Blue leather interior. The good news? It only has 26,000 miles. The bad news? That means it is expensive.

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera

Oh yellow, how will you make us feel today?

This 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera is wearing Racing Yellow, not to be confused with Speed Yellow, which is very clearly a different shade. Racing Yellow has a little lighter hue and a little more “pop” than what you are used to seeing. While some might not mind this color, I have to warn you the choice of interior leather probably isn’t what you are expecting. It seems to be why this example seems a little less expensive than the current market rate, so let’s peek inside and let me explain.

2016 Porsche Macan S

Last month Porsche announced a facelift to the current generation Macan that introduced some minor visual tweaks, some changes to the interior, and a power upgraded across all the engines. The most noticeable change was with the front fascia, which lets just say has resulted in mixed reviews. Still, the Macan is the butter on the bread of the Porsche lineup, as consumers love their mid-size crossovers even more than the Cayenne. Still, these are “buy, drive, and repeat every three years” kind of vehicles. No one is going to be nostalgic for a used Macan S that someone leased to drive to their cubical everyday, but that doesn’t mean people still don’t want them today. This particular 2016 Macan S up for sale down in Florida isn’t your normal lease-spec, and you are certainly reminded that when opening the doors to see what is inside.

2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet

Did you really like the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S in Anthracite Brown from a few weeks ago? Need even more brown? Boy, do I have the car for you.

This is a 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet finished in Macadamia Metallic with Macadamia Metallic wheels, a Cocoa soft top, and a Natural Leather Cocoa interior. That should cover all of it, literally. I’m almost disappointed they didn’t paint the calipers brown as well. All joking aside, I think the result is fairly reasonable looking. You are correct if you guessed it was also ordered with the Tiptronic gearbox, but that is what you deal with when looking at modern 911 Cabs. So is there just too much brown, or is it just unique enough?

2019 Porsche 718 Cayman

If you’re looking for ‘bang for your buck’, Porsche probably isn’t going to be your brand. You pay a lot for Porsches compared to equivalent vehicles from other brands, but on the other hand you do get a that badge. How much value that brings is naturally up to you. You could argue that it is worth it in many cases, but sometimes the numbers don’t lie.

If you want to start entry level, the 718 chassis is going to be launching point in the low $60,000 range; the base 911 is $40,000 more. However, buying a 718 for that $60,000 and change is nearly impossible given the options and how quickly they add up, and the dealer probably won’t order you one unless you are the best customer they have. The solution? Looks in the used market and hope something turns up. That is what we have today in a 2019 Cayman that had an MSRP of $73,000. Three years and 20,000 miles later? Well, I bet the used car discount isn’t going to seem as much as you’d think.

1984 Porsche 911 Carrera “Employee Wishes”

If there is one thing I love, it is one-off examples of cars with a bunch of things I never knew existed or didn’t even know were possible to order.

This 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera was built for Tilman Brodbeck, assistant to then-Porsche CEO Peter Schutz. The story goes that the car had so many unique features and touches that it was physically pulled off the assembly line and painted at a special off-site facility before returning to Porsche, where it was fitted with one of the craziest interiors I’ve come across. Just wait until you see the details on this thing.
