2012 Porsche 911 Club Coupe

You might have a rare car, but do you have one of 12 rare? Well, technically one of 13 but I’ll explain that in a second.

This is a 2012 Porsche 911 Club Coupe. The story goes that Porsche produced this to commemorate the first 13 Porsche club members in 1952. Based on the 991 Carrera S, all were finished in Brewster Green over Expresso Brown leather and were equipped with the Powerkit, SportDesign bodywork, 20″ wheels with matching spokes, PASM, ceramic brakes, the Bose audio system, adaptive headlights, front and rear parking assist, auto-dimming mirrors, and aluminum trim. 12 lucky owners were chosen from a Porsche club raffle, and one of the 13 cars stayed with Porsche for their collection. Sticker price was around $140,000 and judging by the asking price of this one, it was money well spent.

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

Crazy to think that the older 991-generation of Porsche 911 is now 10 years old. Time stops for no one and here we are. For myself, I loved and still do admire the 991. There is nothing conversational or risky about it, other than maybe it is a little large. However, cars growing in size aren’t exactly unique to Porsche, as every car has grown outside of the really niche models. If I had my choice, I’d have a 991 GT3 and call it a day, but for around $60,000 less, I’ll take today’s car: a 2012 911 Carrera S coupe.

2016 Porsche 911 Carrera Black Edition

Back in early spring I took a look at a 2016 Porsche Cayman “Black Edition” that was basically a bunch of options packaged together and given a random name. It was certainly no coincidence as the 718 Cayman launched the next model year, and it is no coincidence the 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera “Black Edition” was launched just before the 991.2 generation. Like the Cayman, it is a collection of options and some “Black Edition” door sills. Again, there were no performance additions or even suspension upgrades. Who were they trying to fool?

2016 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

For many, the Porsche GTS trim level is the “do it all” choice of their lineup. Plenty of sportiness and special feel without Turbo or GT sacrifices on ride quality and, of course, price. A GTS is something you can get away with using 365 days a year if the weather permits it, no matter if it’s the trim you choose for the Boxster, Cayman, 911, Panamera, or even the Macan and Cayenne. For me, the 911 GTS is the sweet spot given how unforgiving the GT3 can ride on less-than-perfect roads and is the smart buy, as it can save you tens of thousands on the purchase price over a GT model. I say that in an absolute ideal scenario because today’s car, a 2016 GTS up for sale in Portland, maybe doesn’t save you all that much.

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

Hard to believe we are coming up on 10 years since the launch of the 991 Porsche 911 chassis. Even though they are officially 2013 model years, production of them began in mid-2012 and they were called “The new 911 Carrera” because there were some leftover 997.2 Turbos that were still produced as 2013 model years. There were no GTS or GT2/GT3 cars for this model year, so if you wanted the best, you had to go with the Carrera S model. Naturally, some who really wanted the new 911 and all the toys that went with them really went all out, and this is an example of one of those cars.

This 2013 C2S up for sale in Syracuse, New York was loaded up with a paint-to-sample exterior, carbon-ceramic brakes, the sport suspension and exhaust system, adaptive sport seats, Burmester audio, and a whole other laundry list of options. How much? Base price on one of these when new was around $120,000, but this one came in just north of $160,000. I wonder if they traded it in on a GT3 the next year?
