2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring

A few weeks ago I stumbled across a 1980 Porsche 930 Turbo in one of my favorite paint-to-sample colors – Viola Metallic. It’s deep enough that it certainly looks like a special color and can blend in when needed without being so purple that it looks like Barney the Dinosaur driving down the road. Turns out I’m not alone as people are still dishing out large amounts of money to paint it on the current generation 911. And what better model than the GT3 Touring?

2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring

One of the hottest cars since its launch earlier this year has been no real surprise. The new Porsche 911 GT3 Touring has outrageous demand – so much so that some dealers are charging up to $75,000 in “market adjustment” and the used market is asking over six figures on top of the MSRP if you can find one. Getting an allocation is basically a winning lottery ticket although if you flip it as soon as you take delivery, good luck ever getting the call again for one of these.

Today, we have a basically new example with just 112 miles in a fairly tame spec on the outside. It’s plain black with silver wheels and black brake calipers. Although once you peek inside, it gets awfully bright.

2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S

I know I’m all about the colors, but some maybe are just a tad too far. Case in point: Lizard Green. This is a color you need to be prepared to be asked about every time you stop for fuel. It is so crazy that it is even a little tough to be taken seriously. If you are a lawyer, have fun driving this one to court dates. A C-level exec at a large company? Nothing says “I make a ton of money!” like a lime green Porsche parked out front. You have to own this color and own it fully. Thankfully the car that it is painted on, a 2020 911 Carrera S, has the numbers to back it up. Independent reviews are still clocking this thing to 60-mph in 3 seconds flat and standing ¼-mile times of 11.3 seconds. It is that fast – all while being totally comfortable and reliable. What a world!

2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S

Please forgive me for featuring the same model in back-to-back weeks, but this is something I’ve never seen before that I wanted to dive into. We all know the new 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S is rather bonkers, and Porsche keeps giving us all the extra goodies to make it even that much better. Although for a very steep price as we are about to see.

This 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S is optioned with what Porsche is calling the “Lightweight Package.” What does that include? Well, you get thinner glass and sound deadening material, a 10mm lower suspension, a sport exhaust system, and most importantly, the carbon bucket seats. This is a big deal in the 911 Turbo world as I believe this is the first time you as a regular Joe could option the carbon buckets in the 911 Turbo. How much for all this? $10,340. Not exactly a big deal on a car that starts at $208,000 to begin with. It is also important to note that selecting this package deletes the electric steering column and rear seats as well. So if you are looking to build a GT2-esque example before we even are seeing spy shots of them, here is your chance.

2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S

When Porsche launched the next-generation 992 Turbo S last year, most had a hard time believing the numbers it was pulling down. I know we really don’t live our daily lives in 0-60 times, but when that number is quicker than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, you think about things a little differently. The car is that fast. It is still the same basic shape as the 911 Turbo has been for the past 20 years, still uses a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six, but now can do a quarter-mile run in 10.1 seconds. Remember when 10 second quarter mile times were reserved for dedicated drag racers? All this for a starting price of $208,000. It should be illegal to sell a car this fast for that amount of money.

Of course, that doesn’t mean you can actually buy one at that price. Today’s car, a 2021 Turbo S coupe is finished in a wonderful paint-to-sample color of Club Blue, only carried out around $30,000 in options. I say only, because it is very easy to click way over $50,000 in options on the configurator at 1 a.m. in your underwear before bed. However, actually paying sticker price isn’t going to happen just yet.
