2009 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I think as much as I fantasize about daily driving a Porsche 911 GT3 or at least using it for all my mundane tasks that require driving, it probably isn’t the best idea ever. Outside of the ride being extremely stiff, you plain old just put a bunch of wear on the car doing something any car could do. In a sense, it’s massive overkill. However, you can still can get your 911 fix by being a reasonable person and do what most people do: just buy a Carrera 2. It is still an extremely capable and rewarding sports car, but it’s also tame enough to handle the daily driving duties. Not to mention they are nearly half the price as a GT3 in the same chassis. Today, we might have one of these perfectly daily-driver 911s without spending anywhere near $100,000.

1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

No, that isn’t a typo for the year. What we are looking at today is a 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet that doesn’t look like a 1987, but rather some year between 1995 and 1998. That wouldn’t be a huge deal other than the fact it is an entirely different chassis. What I’m trying to say is that someone took a G Body car and turned it into a 993 cosmetically. My guess is something like this happened way back when old 911s were downright cheap to what they sell for today and cutting up two 911s to make one 911 wasn’t seen as something totally insane to do. The good thing a quick look outside will have most convinced that you own a newer 993. However, the interior leaves a lot to be desired.

2008 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Today we have two of my favorite things when checking out cars for sale: paint-to-sample color and really high miles. I wouldn’t have guessed it would be a 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera, but here we are. The car is finished in some sort of paint-to-sample blue that I don’t know, but I do the miles are over 250,000. The selling dealer claims it is an original-owner car with all the miles added by that owner, and is now up for sale in Massachusetts. It surely isn’t the most perfect example ever given the miles, but for a cheap enough price, maybe worth the buy-in?

1993 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe

Seemingly out of the no where, the 964 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 has turned into quite the valuable asset – if you want to call them that. Just this month we saw two black Carrera 2 examples sell for $124,000 and $123,456. Outliers in the grand scheme of things? Sure. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t be the start of a trend or sellers thinking their rose has finally bloomed and asking for prices in line with that. Case in point, this Japanese-spec 1992 Carrera 2 finished in the wonderful Wimbledon Green Metallic. It even has some extra fun stuff like Cup 1 wheels and the factory sport seats. The price? Well, if you were in on those black examples, you’re in the right ballpark.

1977 Porsche 911 Coupe

How crazy is the 911 market these days? Well, I’m reluctant to compare to tulips in 1600s Holland, but it also feels like it’s not far off. It seems like these days you can take pretty much any 911, do pretty much whatever you want to it, and end assured that someone will likely pay a mint for it. Want to turn your car into a “Safari” urban warrior? Someone will bid. Have a basketcase wreck? Someone will bid. In the middle lay a tremendous amount of very valuable 911s, some of which are completely stock, and some of which are more like today’s car.

Although the lead may look like a European-style 930, this is in fact a ’77 Coupe that started life as a plain Jane 911. It’s since been given Turbo-style bodywork, European lighting, 16″ Fuchs, a 3.0-liter flat-six, and some pretty cool Tartan inserts on its Cork leather seats. What does this all add up to? You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to expect a hefty price tag:

1998 Porsche 911 Turbo S

Please take your seat and buckle your seatbelts, because you will need them for this one.

This is a 1998 Porsche 911 Turbo S that was reportedly commissioned by His Highness Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Sabah, the 6th Prime Minister of the State of Kuwait. It is by far one of the craziest color combinations I’ve ever laid my eyes on. As you can see from the outside, it’s an unusual shade of Vanilla Yellow, but it isn’t until we open the doors until we see one of the most bizarre and perhaps offensive color schemes in existence. Please brace yourself for this one.

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.

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

There is certainly something about a G-Body Porsche 911 in a shade of green. The G-Body is arguably the most iconic shape of the 911 and certainly one of the most recognizable, so when you pair it with today’s color, Moss Green Metallic, it is a home run for me. Normally green makes up just 1% to 3% of total car production, and that is for both the car industry as a whole and for Porsche specifically. So if you feel like you don’t see a lot of green cars out there, you aren’t wrong. This 1986 up for sale in Italy is well into the “driver” category with over 100,000 miles, but that doesn’t mean it is going to come cheap. Nope, not at all.

2007 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe

I know I’m not exactly throwing out a hot take here, but the 997 generation Porsche 911 Turbo seems to be aging well. It unmistakably looks like a 911 and doesn’t have odd or dated design elements like a certain prior generation. Inside it’s also a perfectly pleasant place to be. Yes, the infotainment system is not great, but as long as you aren’t using it for navigation, it is perfectly serviceable. Performance wise, still really fast with 0-60 runs in the high 3 second range. What isn’t to like? Well, it still is an expensive car both to buy and service, as demonstrated by the 2007 up for sale in North Carolina. I’ve purchased my cars for less than the most recent service bill. Come check it out.

2014 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I know there is a massive yearning for the lightweight aircooled Porsche 911s, but given how Porsche had to deal with, the 991 generation turned out pretty good. It surely isn’t ugly or offensive in terms of styling, and the performance is always at the world standard in terms of how they manage so much performance out of a flat-six engine that fits behind a set of the rear seats. I don’t think there is single variant of the 991 that you couldn’t drive everyday if you were brave enough, granted there was no snow on the roads, and still be extremely comfortable doing it. Even the base model C2 examples, like the one we are looking at today, still brings strong performance terms of power and numbers. The thing I have to wonder is, how far will they fall in terms of price?
