Finding value in the 911 range is always a difficult proposition. Finding a value that also brings with it excellent performance can be darn near impossible. As with most things in life, there is always an exception. The 996TT has been that exception for a while now and even as values for an air-cooled 911 continue to rise, these little loved water-cooled models pretty much stay the same. With more than 400 hp on tap these are very fast cars that will deliver you to your destination with a dose of style and also ferocity and while the all-wheel drive setup provides security against the 911’s tail-wagging nature these cars are still capable of biting back against inattentive drivers. There really are few performance options for the cost of a 996TT on the market these days. The example here is a Black 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Massachusetts, with 55,908 miles on it.

As many are aware, Porsche values have gone a bit crazy over the past few years, especially for classic 911s but also for many variants of the 964 and 993. Pretty much any air-cooled example remains a strong investment, assuming the owner has shown it proper care over its life. There is, however, still value to be had with the 911 as I have featured with a couple examples of the 996TT. If you all will indulge me a bit my aim is to gain a better understanding of the market for these cars so I hope to feature a few more. The negatives of the 996 relative to its predecessors are well known and I won’t rehearse them here, though given that many of those negatives are largely subjective, many buyers may find that the 996 makes for an amazing car. All of which brings us to the car featured here, an Orient Red 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo located in Indianapolis.
