1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

Sometimes I think about those very fortunate people, and probably deservingly so, that every few years would swap out their Porsche 911 Turbo for the newest model year and be happy. Going from a 930 to a 964 Turbo was probably nice, and then going to the 993 Turbo must have felt like heaven. So why would you question your friendly salesperson who only likes you because you spend lots of money with them when the new 996 Turbo showed up on lots and was promised to be the best 911 Turbo yet? I can imagine the disappointment, but then again those same people are probably driving a 992 Turbo S this very day. Not exactly a tragic story.

Still, the 993 Turbo is somehow beating father time and getting more and more desirable every year. What once was a really fun 911 Turbo under $100,000 is now two or three times that, and the really prime examples, like the one we have today, have some mind-blowing asks. How does Iris Blue Metallic with 10,000 miles sound?

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo

I hope you like gold.

This is a 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo finished in paint to sample Opal Metallic with matching wheel centers over a Cashmere and Mocha leather interior. I don’t know what more to really say about it. It is a unorthodox combination that probably no one would order today, but then again we do have people paying $13,000 to paint their GT3 in Ivory. Still, I think we can appreciate this car for what is it and admire from a far. Because that is exactly what I’m going to do after seeing the price.

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

Will the madness ever stop? Looking at today’s car, maybe not.

This is a 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S. The “king of the hill” 993 Turbo and one of the most desirable air-cooled Porsches ever made. Just 345 examples were produced and only 182 of them were imported to the US. As you might have guessed, most were driven sparingly. A few thousand miles a year at most and then once prices started climbing, the miles started decreasing. However, this is one example that didn’t even hit that few thousand miles. This example comes in with the number 1,779 shown on the odometer. That’s it. Also, it has a totally crazy leather-to-sample Boxster Red interior. Brace yourself for this price.

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I suppose someone has to drive it. “It” in this case is a 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera. A classic 911 finished in Polar Silver over a rare Flamenco Red leather interior. It also has 18″ turbo-look wheels, a sunroof, and just 67,000 miles. One minor catch – it’s also got a gearbox that shifts itself.

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I’d really like to shake the hand of the product planner who decided that today’s car, a 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera, needed to be offered in the shade of Amaranth Violet. Yes, this is not a paint-to-sample color, but was actually offered as an optional color for on the 1994 and 1995 model years of the 911 and 968. It’s basically as purple as purple gets and needless to say, extremely rare. Does that mean it brings an extreme premium over a less exciting shade?
