1997 Porsche 911 Turbo

I hope you like gold.

This is a 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo finished in paint to sample Opal Metallic with matching wheel centers over a Cashmere and Mocha leather interior. I don’t know what more to really say about it. It is a unorthodox combination that probably no one would order today, but then again we do have people paying $13,000 to paint their GT3 in Ivory. Still, I think we can appreciate this car for what is it and admire from a far. Because that is exactly what I’m going to do after seeing the price.

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

Will the madness ever stop? Looking at today’s car, maybe not.

This is a 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S. The “king of the hill” 993 Turbo and one of the most desirable air-cooled Porsches ever made. Just 345 examples were produced and only 182 of them were imported to the US. As you might have guessed, most were driven sparingly. A few thousand miles a year at most and then once prices started climbing, the miles started decreasing. However, this is one example that didn’t even hit that few thousand miles. This example comes in with the number 1,779 shown on the odometer. That’s it. Also, it has a totally crazy leather-to-sample Boxster Red interior. Brace yourself for this price.

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

I love a good story, and I love even more when those good stories involve Porsche 911 Turbo S cars. This wonderful 1997 Turbo S for sale in Munich, Germany is the reportedly press car for all of the 993 Turbo S literature and events thus built with some very special parts. Boy, do I love these cars.

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo

For me, the 993 generation of the Porsche 911 Turbo just gets it right. Clearly I’m not alone in feeling this way given the way values have gone in the past year and a half or so. There will never be another aircooled 911 Turbo unless the air is coming from fans cooling giant battery packs. Even watching those old MotorWeek reviews, they even went so far as to call the 993 Turbo “one of the most capable road cars ever built.” I certainly don’t disagree given over 25 years later it can still call itself “fast.” However, is it worth the massive buy in and higher-than-average repair bills?

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.
