2014 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

The Porsche 911 Targa is one of those true ‘have your cake and eat it too’ cars that has been carrying on for a few decades now. After all, it was created to answer the rumor that the US was going to ban the sale of convertible cars due to safety reasons, but Porsche, and most importantly their customers, still wanted open-air motoring. What started as a simple removable roof panel transformed into a piece of sliding glass over generations, and now we have an extremely complex folding roof mechanism that you pray never has a fault with it. Still, when it works, it is amazing. So what do you say – are you a Targa fan or not?

2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

We saw what kind of asking prices the 996 Porsche 911 is asking, and I really mean asking, but I still think it might be a sign as to what is to come with that generation. As with everything, the best and most desirable examples get snatched up first, then you make your way down the food chain at a rate that the market demands and of course the supply offers. Thankfully they made a ton of 996s in nearly every flavor, and most of those flavors as relatively appetizing. Today, we have the trusty “not a Turbo but kind of looks like one” Carrera 4S in the always popular Grand Prix White. Inside, black leather. Get one while you can, or still not worth it?

2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

I don’t mean to harp on the Porsche 996 Carrera 4S so much, but the entire package of what they offer, especially at their current prices, always seem to draw me back in. Whether it be the wide rear end, 18″ Turbo Twist wheels, or the heckblende rear reflector, these cars just seem to do it for me. For what they were working with, I think Porsche nailed this design and pulled just enough pieces from the Turbo to keep you interested, but not so much that it was almost as expensive as the Turbo and no one would bite on it. Now, some 15 years later, this are at the bottom of the price curve and ripe for the picking. Time to snag one?

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

If you are going to all-in on bright green, prepare to go all in. The greens that Porsche offered up back in the 1960s and 1970s were not for the shy and judging by the today’s car, it’s still that way. This is a 2017 911 Carrera 4S in paint-to-sample Viper Green and there is certainly no mistaking it. I can see why they called it Viper Green, because in a never-ending sea of cars in earth tones, seeing a car painted this color is like getting bitten by a viper. Okay, maybe that was an extreme comparison, but you get where I am going with this. Judging by the mileage on this car, it seems like the first owner didn’t like to be seen in this one.

2009 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

The 997.2 Porsche 911 Targa was the last of the sliding roof versions that started with the 993 and ended with the intro of the 991 generation that got extremely complicated. Without looking close enough, you can assume that they are just regular coupes and maybe that is what Porsche was going for. If you happen to see one, they are rare. Only about 3,000 997.2 Targas were made, as compared to the 10s of thousands in the regular coupe bodies. This 2009 for sale in Washington is finished in the classic Carrara White with the Cocoa special leather. The perfect daily driver?

2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

The 996 Porsche 911 C4S generated a healthy discussion a few weeks ago when I looked at a very nice 2002 in Miami that surprisingly is still for sale. Wouldn’t you know it, another 2002 happened to pop up for sale and as you can see, this one has a splash of color on it. However, this example for sale in California isn’t as nice as the silver car from a few weeks back. This Speed Yellow C4S has almost 160,000 miles on it and by the looks of it, they were very hard miles. Still, Speed Yellow with matching hard back seats and a painted center console? Tough to overlook. And what if I told you that you could buy this car for under $20,000?

2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

In my opinion, in terms of dollar for dollar value, there is no better Porsche 911 than the 996 Carrera 4S. It has all the looks of the 996 Turbo, but for about half the price. In terms of reliability, as long as you take care of the boogie man IMS bearing, these cars are solid. Inside, you can go as tame or as crazy as you want, as the “special requests” just started to gain traction with the rise of the interior in the early 2000s. Today’s car, a 2002 up for sale in Miami, is just about perfect in terms of the whole package. Arctic Silver over black, full carbon fiber trim, and some H&R lowering springs to get rid of the pesky wheel gap. Sign me up.

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

There seems to be a very vocal group of people in the car world that really love green cars. I adore them as well, so much so if given the choice of choosing a color, I’d think I’d go with a dark green. For whatever reason, there just aren’t a ton of green cars out there running around. Probably because the millions of dollars car companies spend on market research says people don’t want green cars, and I do see their point. Its not that companies don’t produce green cars, but rather they don’t produce them on the same level as the silver, gray, black, and whites. So I have to ask, do people love green because its an aesthetically pleasing color on cars? Or rather because it is rare to see and people want things that aren’t so common? Like the little girl says on TV selling taco shells, “¿Por qué no los dos?

This 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S for sale in California is a green lovers dream. Forest Green Metallic on the outside, Palm Green leather on the inside. Extra goodies include 19″ lobster claw wheels, heated sport seats, park assist, Bose audio, and more. Where do I sign?

2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

About a month ago I took a look at one of the strangest colors I’ve seen on a Porsche 911. It wasn’t the actual color that was strange, but rather the name of literally “Ferrari-Yellow.” Like I mentioned, Porsche would rather shut the company down rather than put a competitors name on one of their cars now, but it looks like the lure of the Ferrari-Yellow goes further than we thought. Today, I wanted to look at the next generation of that car, the 996 C4S. This 2004 for sale in New York is finished in the popular “Speed yellow” and just like the 993, has the turbo-twist wheels, matching calipers, and some extra bits of yellow on the interior. However, they really went all out with the yellow on this car. Just wait until you see.

2008 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

As much as I’m dismayed by the proliferation of automatic and PDK gearboxes in the Porsche range, I have to admit that it may not be a bad thing. A car like this 997 Targa 4S is not exactly the 911 of yore. That is, a lightweight sports car with two missions in mind: going fast and keeping you on your toes while going about that task. As the 911 has aged, it has gotten larger and heavier, but it is still quite a capable machine. This 2008 911 Targa 4S for sale from our friends at Automobili Limited is practically new, with just over 7,000 miles on the clock. It has the 5-speed Tiptronic gearbox, however, that tends to fit with the Targa’s persona versus other 911s, as one may want to cruise along a bit more slowly and enjoy the fresh air.
