2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

I think what I’ve learned over the years is that if a color exists, Porsche isn’t afraid of it. They’ll basically paint your car almost any color for a (large) price, and then even themselves get a little cheeky when it comes to certain shades that you’d never expect. Today’s color, Cognac Metallic, can certainly be called that. The short of it is that it is very brown and not afraid to show it. Of course, it is on a cabriolet body with a dark brown soft top and an Espresso Natural leather interior as well. Who would sign up for this?

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S

Sometimes I feel like I’m having car déjà vu. Granted I look at cars for sale seven days a week and sometimes they blend together, but I knew that there probably weren’t two 2021 Porsche 911 Carrera S examples out there finished in Radium Green. Thankfully we have helped keywords and tags, and wouldn’t you know I did take a look at this car back in April 2020. However, the photos are very similar. So similar that they are identical. But this listing says the car now has 13,500 miles (up from 4,900) and the price has actually gone up $11,000. What is going on here?

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera

Oh yellow, how will you make us feel today?

This 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera is wearing Racing Yellow, not to be confused with Speed Yellow, which is very clearly a different shade. Racing Yellow has a little lighter hue and a little more “pop” than what you are used to seeing. While some might not mind this color, I have to warn you the choice of interior leather probably isn’t what you are expecting. It seems to be why this example seems a little less expensive than the current market rate, so let’s peek inside and let me explain.

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S

Brown cars are a funny thing. If you told someone that out of all the colors you could order a car you chose the shade the UPS man prefers, they’d probably call you nuts. However, in some cases after you see it, the results are pretty good. Of course this totally depends on what car we are talking about, but manufacturers have gotten pretty good at mixing that perfect shade that isn’t ugly or offensive. Case in point; Anthracite Brown Metallic on a Porsche 911. It very much has the strong presence of Anthracite in it, but still surely won’t be mistaken for anything but brown. Naturally, you need an interior color to match when you go all-in with the brown, so you’ll not find carbon fiber or deviated green stitching here. Lets check it out.

2016 Porsche 911 R

As much as the Porsche 911 GT3 Touring was theoretically produced in an attempt to curb the insane mark-up prices on the 911 R, it seems like they didn’t produce enough. Based on the recent prices, a lot more people want GT3 Tourings than are out there. As for the 911 R? Good luck even finding one. If they do turn up, bring a barrel of money. Several barrels of money. This example up for sale in Houston with 158 miles? Do I need to even so more?

2014 Porsche 911 GT3

Last week’s 911 Turbo Cabriolet was a quick lesson on how not to sell a car. Today I wanted to have another refresher, but this time on how not to buy a car.

This 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 seems enticing enough. Sapphire Blue Metallic, 16,000 miles, and under $100,000. Clearly a catch here. Photos are average, and the seller says the there was a “minor bumper accident”. Well, that is unfortunate, but maybe it was just a parking lot accident? After all, these are expensive body parts and some damage could trigger some replacement parts. Oh how I wish that was the case with this one. Just wait until you see what “minor” really is.

2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

If I could find whoever spec’d this car out, I would give them a firm, but polite, handshake to thank them for bringing this car into the world for all of us to enjoy. This 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS up for sale in Northwest Germany is finished in none other than paint-to-sample Irish Green, and boy does it look amazing. Even better, the madmen at Manthey Racing put a few little special touches on this.

2016 Porsche 911 R

Where have you gone, 911 R? In terms of value, of course. The most heavily speculated Porsche 911 in a long time had a wild ride of instant value rise up to $600,000 and sometimes $700,000, only for it to crash and burn after Porsche announced a GT3 Touring with a 6-speed manual. Suddenly, we were seeing sale prices on 500-mile cars for only $35,000 over sticker, not $350,000. Still, there are few enough 911 R examples out there that dealers can collude to keep prices high, until a private owner needs money and decides making $50,000 for doing nothing is good enough. Today’s example, a car with 2,000 miles up for sale in Florida, still has a giant asking price.

2015 Porsche 911 GT3

Fresh off last week’s red car, I bumped into another car that just happened to be a much different shade of red. This 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 is finished in paint-to-sample Arena Red, which technically is a custom color on the 991 GT3, but this isn’t this first time we’ve seen it on a 911. Arena Red was the launch color of the 993 Turbo and featured on the ironic Kills Bugs Fast poster that we all probably had a chuckle over when remembering it. It isn’t a historic color like some of the other paint-to-sample options we’ve seen, but actually more modern as it launched in 1995 on the already mentioned 993, as well as the Boxster and very early 996 cars. Does it fit well on the 991 GT3?

2014 Porsche 911 Carrera S

This 911 sold for $71,500.
I suppose anything can be a daily driver if you are brave enough, but some sports cars literally do offer enough comforts and practically in all areas that they can be used year-round. Case in point, the Porsche 911. I suppose since the start of the 911, you could be okay daily driving one as they aren’t all that harsh, nor unreliable like some of the stuff that came out of Italy in the past few decades. As the generations went on, this became even more or a possibility of it being your only car starting with the 964 chassis and in the introduction to all-wheel drive. Now 20 years later, you have some of the most advanced tech when it comes to car control and the only thing you really need is a set of decent snow tires. Wouldn’t you know, this is exactly what we have today.

This 2014 Carrera S up for sale outside of Chicago doesn’t even need the all-wheel drive of the C4, just a different set of wheels with some dedicated snow tires. Hey, if you can, why not?
