2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

One of the things I never tire of seeing is cars with seemingly innocent exteriors and totally wild interiors. There is something about the surprise of opening the doors and seeing the totally unexpected rather than the typical black or tan. On this 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S, we have exactly that.

On the outside, it’s a totally common Seal Grey. This is a color to get lost in the crowd. However, once you open those doors, you are blasted with Terracota leather on almost every surface. Sign me up! Well, on second thought, maybe not at this price.

2006 Porsche Cayenne S Titanium Edition

It is hard to believe that the Porsche Cayenne is celebrating 20 years of production. 20 years! Shortly after its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show in September 2002, the Cayenne took off and never looked backed. In the eight model years of the first generation, just under 35,000 vehicles per year were sold. The millionth Cayenne rolled off the production line in the summer of 2020, and last year well over 80,000 examples were sold. People love Cayennes.

Porsche started to realize that people love Cayennes, so naturally the next step was special editions. Way back in 2006, the Titanium Edition was rolled out exclusive to the United State and Canada. What was it? Just some colored accents and a two-tone interior. That’s it. No real changes otherwise, so they can be had for not too much money:

2006 Mercedes-Benz R500 4MATIC

Sometimes things just don’t make sense. The Mercedes-Benz R-Class is one of those. When it launched, it was compared to a bad minivan with ugly styling and a crazy price tag. The R350 rang in north of $50,000, while a loaded up R500 4MATIC hit $70,000. That is a lot of money for something that doesn’t look the price, and the quality was average at best. The interior was just a lot of parts-bin stuff and was very much form-follows-function. One would think that would equal almost no demand for them in the used market given Mercedes expanded their SUV lineup massively and updated everything around them. However, the prices they are still bringing in the used market some 15 years later say that is not the case.

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Club Coupe

In a modern manufacturing world where everything is calculated down to the penny and scaling is everything, it is a wonder we as consumers of cars actually were presented with some really low-volume examples. I’m not talking a few thousand or a few hundred, I’m talking just 50. Yes, somehow someone at Porsche convinced the production planners to make 50 identical cars, all in the same special color and specs, and just for the US market as well. You can go back and read about the 997 Club Coupe the last time I looked at one, but today I wanted to check out this example with just 6,200 miles on the odometer. I was really excited for this one, then I saw something that didn’t make sense to me. Let me explain.

2006 Mercedes-Benz S500

The W220 Mercedes-Benz S-Class gets a pretty bad rap in the grand scheme of things, and mostly rightfully so. What replaced the W140 chassis was a stark departure from the bank vault-like feel and stately styling, and went into deep into soft lines and subpar materials. It harsher words, it was a blob. It wasn’t until the facelift compare around that the W220 really became a little bit more friendly on the eyes. In additional to the S55 and S65, you could also option the AMG bodywork and wheels on the S500 to give it a little more flash. Today’s car, a 2006 S500 up for in Florida, is exactly that. You might have noticed the color too.
