2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S Endurance Racing Edition

One of the stranger special editions to come out of Porsche in the past few years was the 2017 911 Carrera S Endurance Racing Edition. It was produced to commemorate the marque’s 17 victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which was fine, but the color scheme based on Porsche’s LMP1 racer is really bizarre. That is because you can’t actually read what it says. It is supposed to read “Porsche Intelligent Performance” on the hood and roof, but the font is so large that you have no idea what it even reads unless you are a mega nerd for everything Porsche. Needless to say, this doesn’t appeal to the casual 911 buyer that turns in their lease every three years. Just 235 of these were made, so you probably won’t see many running around:

2016 Porsche 911 R

Last week I was listing to an interview with everyone’s favorite comedian and 1990s sitcom star known to be a massive Porsche collector, and he was asked what his favorite modern 911 was. The person asking the question assumed it was the 911 GT3 RS 4.0. I too assumed that, but his answer was actually the 2016 911 R. A worthy choice for sure, but I do wonder if his answer was because he was rumored to have pitched the idea to Grant Larson, who then took it to the Porsche board. Nothing was ever officially confirmed and I’m sure Porsche will never admit it either, but still a fun tidbit on what is continuing to be very desirable car. Just 991 examples were ever produced, and it seems like handful of them trading publicly every year. Their values? A rollercoaster to say the least.

Today, we have an example in one of the launch colors with just 2,300 miles on the odometer. The price? It’s up there.

2018 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Yellow is not a color that works in every situation. It needs to be the right brand, the right model, and the right shade. A yellow Mercedes-Benz S-Class just doesn’t work. It’s fun and quirky, but not exactly the color you want to look at everyday. However, a yellow Porsche 911? Now we are talking.

This 2018 911 Carrera coupe is just your base model of the 911 line, but still offers a ton of punch from the twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six. If you want the extra excitement, this one has the 7-speed manual if shifting gears is your thing. Only one problem – a nearly five-year old base 911 still has an asking price of over sticker. What the … ?

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?
