2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring

One of the hottest cars since its launch earlier this year has been no real surprise. The new Porsche 911 GT3 Touring has outrageous demand – so much so that some dealers are charging up to $75,000 in “market adjustment” and the used market is asking over six figures on top of the MSRP if you can find one. Getting an allocation is basically a winning lottery ticket although if you flip it as soon as you take delivery, good luck ever getting the call again for one of these.

Today, we have a basically new example with just 112 miles in a fairly tame spec on the outside. It’s plain black with silver wheels and black brake calipers. Although once you peek inside, it gets awfully bright.

2016 Porsche 911 R

Last week I was listing to an interview with everyone’s favorite comedian and 1990s sitcom star known to be a massive Porsche collector, and he was asked what his favorite modern 911 was. The person asking the question assumed it was the 911 GT3 RS 4.0. I too assumed that, but his answer was actually the 2016 911 R. A worthy choice for sure, but I do wonder if his answer was because he was rumored to have pitched the idea to Grant Larson, who then took it to the Porsche board. Nothing was ever officially confirmed and I’m sure Porsche will never admit it either, but still a fun tidbit on what is continuing to be very desirable car. Just 991 examples were ever produced, and it seems like handful of them trading publicly every year. Their values? A rollercoaster to say the least.

Today, we have an example in one of the launch colors with just 2,300 miles on the odometer. The price? It’s up there.

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

It seems that Porsche wasn’t afraid of turquoise judging by the 930 Turbo I looked at a few weeks ago. As you can see by today’s car, they certainly weren’t scared of it on the outside of their cars either. This 1996 911 Carrera 4S is a desirable car in any shade, but in paint-to-sample Dragonfly Turquoise Metallic? Oh boy. Rumor has it that this was a press and demo car for Porsche AG in Germany and then changed hands to an employee who owned the car from 1998 to 2007. That certainly explains I’ve never seen one in this color and it has the extra touches on the interior. The price? I guess we’ll be guessing on this one.

2016 Porsche Cayman S

I’m not exactly going out on any limbs and predicting something that others aren’t seeing, but the 981 Porsche Cayman is aging very well. It’s a great size, the tech is more than adequate, but the real star of the show is the MA1 flat-6. It is a wonderfully balanced engine that sounds great, kicks out 325 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, and won’t kill you in service costs. However, I think one of the biggest reasons the 981 is holding strong, is that it isn’t a 718. Hear me out here.

Unless you spring for the GTS 4.0 or GT4, the 718 chassis gets a lot of kickback because of the MA2 turbocharged flat-4. Don’t get me wrong, I want to love the 718. I think it looks great, the interior is extremely nice for the price point, but I just can’t love, or even like, the MA2 engine. Every time I hear one start up, I am having flashbacks to 2005 Subaru WRXs. I am not alone here. Because of this, I’d much rather buy the older car for the engine alone. Today’s car, a 2016 Cayman S, looks to be one of the finer examples I’ve come across of the 981 chassis in the past few years. Why? Well, it has 955 miles on it. That’s it. 955.

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S

I suppose one of the great things about cars is there is always more to learn. Today’s car is one of those moments where I was pleasantly surprised to learn something totally new. You might be looking at that photo above and saying “Yes, that is a 1997 911 Turbo S.” I also as a reasonable person with Porsche knowledge jumping to that conclusion also. Why? All the 993 Turbo S cars have unique venting in the rear quarter panels I thought were only used on that model. Not even the standard 993 Turbo has it. Well, the car we are looking at today is a 1997 911 Carrera S. How did it get those vents in the front of the rear wheel arches? Apparently, it was a very rare option. If you ordered “X79 – Side air vents on rear wings” you could have those little vents, but considering this is the first non-Turbo S I’ve ever seen them on, I’d say they are pretty rare.
