2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

For many, the 997.2 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is the one to get if you want the best of the best in the GT3 RS family. It was the last GT3 RS with a manual gearbox, if you don’t count whatever family the 991 911 R falls in, and some say feels like the perfect size. Don’t get me wrong, I love the 991 GT3 RS and I’m probably going to love the not-yet-released 992 GT3 RS, but if you want a manual transmission, the buck stops here. Just 541 examples came to the US, but today’s car as you might have noticed by which side the steering wheel is located, isn’t one of those 541 cars. Also, it is Cobalt Blue Metallic.

2004 Porsche 911 GT3

I don’t want to say I told you so, but literally three years ago I told everyone to buy 996 Porsche 911 GT3s and they’ll thank me. Now, almost every 996 GT3 is pushing six-figures and the really low mile ones sell as much as the 991 GT3. I don’t think they are going to keep climbing like crazy forever given it is a really tough ride and not a great street car, but it seems just saying you own a GT car now is enough and everything else comes second. Today’s example, a 2004 up for sale in Arizona, is not for anyone looking for a deal on this and is probably priced way at the top of the market.

1999 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Back in 2021, I took a look at a string of Aerokit-equipped 996 Carreras, culminating in this neat Mirage Metallic example:

2000 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Even priced in the high 30k range, these are still some of the most affordable 911s you can get into. Today’s example is a ’99 with more mileage, but it’s got the correct-for-early-GT3 Sport Design wheels and it’s a bunch cheaper. Is it a good deal?

2022 Porsche 718 GT4

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. That is something to keep in mind when specifying new cars. The manufacturer might give you basically unlimited customization in every color, but that doesn’t mean you should use them. Unfortunately for this 718 GT4, that seems to be the case here. Buckle up!

2009 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I’m a sucker for a smooth blue, and that is certainly what we have today in this 2009 Porsche 911 Carrera. This color, Aqua Blue, is a shade you don’t see often despite being an option on the 997.2 – and I’m not sure why. It certainly looks great and can pair up just fine with the tan, grey, and black leathers. Whatever is the case for why it was not ordered much, if you are looking for a deal because this is a base C2, it will not be found here.

2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

Sometimes there is more to the story than we know. Perhaps it is some funny business behind the scenes, a sale that really didn’t happen, or just some straight-up fraud. Today’s car, a 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4s, might not be any of those things, but something isn’t adding up here.

I thought I recognized this car and turns out I did as it was recently sold at Gooding & Co. Amelia Island auction back in early March as part of the late-Rudy “Mr. 993” Mancinas collection. It was a fairly nice 996 C4S, but had a good number of miles on it at nearly 86,000. What is an early C4S with that many miles worth? Usually in that $40,000-50,000 range for a nicer color and cool options like this. Even Gooding estimated $40,000 – $60,000. Totally reasonable. What did end up selling for? $72,800. Yikes. That is 996 Turbo money easily. Now, a month later, the car is back up for sale in Charlotte, North Carolina for the price of $70,820. Huh?

2022 Porsche 718 Boxster S

This is a way to make an entrance. I’m all for fun colors, but if you go for one, you have to own it. This is especially true for colors like we are checking out today — Viola Purple Metallic. Needless to say this is a Paint to Sample option, and a pricey one at that, and even more crazier when you put it on a convertible. Still, this is much better than another black or grey car, even at it’s current crazy pricing considering this is still just a Boxster S. Love it or leave it?

2016 Porsche Cayman GT4

The 918 Porsche Cayman GT4 was one of those cars that was a somewhat realistic purchase I thought I could swing once they started aging and future generations would drive the prices down on. Or so that is what I thought. For a good while there, it seemed to be trending that way. From 2017 to mid-2020, lightly used examples were between $80,000 and $90,000, and with talk of the 718 GT4 coming soon, we thought prices would keep creeping down. Well, that didn’t happen because of the perfect storm that happen post-2020 and now we are still hovering around sticker price for cars with over 10,000 miles and some of the really nice examples are well over $100,000. Maybe in another six years?

2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS

The Porsche 718 Cayman GTS is one of the few new Porsche’s that launched with a thud. Everyone wanted the classic 3.4-liter flat-six, maybe even a 3.6-liter, but instead they were served up a turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four. To make it even worse, it sounded like a Subaru WRX. Porsche owners don’t want Subaru sounds. The numbers on paper were mightily disappointing as well, given their performance in the real world was nearly identical to the 718 Cayman S. That means you paid over $12,000 more just to get the standard GTS stuff like brake-based torque vectoring, the Sport Chrono package, adaptive dampers with a lower ride height, 20-inch wheels, and sport seats that are otherwise optional on the Boxster S. In that light I suppose that was a good value? Either way, Porsche knew they screwed up so went back to the drawing board and thankfully gave us the GTS 4.0. However, that doesn’t mean the flat-four versions suddenly fell off the face of the earth.

Today, we have a 2018 up for sale in New York with the great color of Sapphire Blue Metallic and just 6,200 miles. But I hope you aren’t expecting a deal on this one.

2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic

While the United States might be Porsche’s second largest market, that doesn’t mean we always get the fun stuff when it comes to special edition models. A lot of times it just isn’t worth it for Porsche to make a US legal version, thus we are stuck with every single other model they do bend over backwards to sell us. One of the most popular, and now most expensive models, was the 2010 911 Sport Classic. Porsche claimed it was inspired by the 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7 and it had one of the most interesting and subtle changes you might not even notice, a double-dome roof. Other special equipment includes 19″ Fuchs-style wheels, a SportDesign front lip and ducktail spoiler, some contrasting racing stripes, carbon-ceramic brakes, adaptive sport seats with some cool trim, and the “Power Kit” on the 3.8-liter flat-six. Production was limited to 250 cars and the sticker price came in at €169,300. That was nearly GT2 money at the time. However, if you were lucky to buy one of these when new…..it was money well spent.
