We don’t feature many of the newer model year 911s very often, but this one struck me for a number of reasons. Foremost, of course, it’s a very rare exterior color. That will always grab our attention. But I was also struck by the price. It hardly makes sense to classify any car as cheap when it has a price tag of $100K, but in a relative sense that’s exactly how this one strikes me. The color is Meissen Blue, a shade Porsche made available in the late 1950s for the 356. Seeing it on a modern Porsche really shows the juxtaposition of old and new style. It’s absolutely a unique look for the 997 and brings a softness to the Turbo’s lines that belies its performance abilities.

Let’s get back to that price. Outside of a 996 there are few 911 Turbos you’ll have much shot at for less than $100K and the ones that are available obviously will be in far lesser condition. Not to mention the overall performance of this Turbo will be far superior. If I really wanted to nit pick it would be great if this were a manual, but there is so much luxury to these cars now that PDK is fine. Otherwise, it’s a very rare color combination, still very low miles, and a heck of a lot of performance. What’s not to like?
Editor’s note: it’s looks like this one sold before our post went live. Given the combination of features, we’ll preserve it as a data point.
