2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

I hate to be the one with clichés, but a lot of times when people ask me about the values of certain cars, I reply a lot of times “They’ll never be any less expensive.” This is usually caused by a perfect storm of low production, high demand, and the very high chance of that kind of car won’t be produced ever again. Today’s car, a 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, checks all those boxes.

Only 410 examples were built for the US market during a two-year production run, which is extremely low considering how many people out there desire these cars, and the major kicker being this is one of the few GT3 RS models produced with a manual transmission. I think it is pretty clear that the days of manual gearboxes in RS cars are long gone, so if you want one, go find a 997 example. I think most of the world has realized all this, and now over the past few years prices have almost doubled. What I’d give for a GT3 RS for $140,000.

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

One of the things I never tire of seeing is cars with seemingly innocent exteriors and totally wild interiors. There is something about the surprise of opening the doors and seeing the totally unexpected rather than the typical black or tan. On this 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S, we have exactly that.

On the outside, it’s a totally common Seal Grey. This is a color to get lost in the crowd. However, once you open those doors, you are blasted with Terracota leather on almost every surface. Sign me up! Well, on second thought, maybe not at this price.

2005 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

For all the days I wish I had a Porsche 911 GT3 to crawl into the sport bucket seats and shift my own gears, there are some days when I just don’t want to think at all. For a lot of people, that is most days. A comfortable convertible with an automatic transmission and soft suspension sounds pretty good! If that is your thing, you are in luck given they are by far the least expensive way to get into a modern 911. Today’s car, a 2005 911 Carrera finished in the rare Carmon Red Metallic, checks in with 42,000 miles.

2005 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

The 997 Porsche 911 generation continues to age gracefully in my eyes. It certainly won’t get mistaken for a new car, but I certainly think it a soothing and classic shape that will go down as a “win” for the design team at Porsche. As with almost cars, the facelift model years always get the first look, but I really like the pre-facelift examples just as much as the later cars. Today’s example, a base 2005 C2, is finished in the classic Guards Red over black leather and has just 39,000 miles. The price? Well … at least it is in the ballpark.

2008 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Today we have two of my favorite things when checking out cars for sale: paint-to-sample color and really high miles. I wouldn’t have guessed it would be a 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera, but here we are. The car is finished in some sort of paint-to-sample blue that I don’t know, but I do the miles are over 250,000. The selling dealer claims it is an original-owner car with all the miles added by that owner, and is now up for sale in Massachusetts. It surely isn’t the most perfect example ever given the miles, but for a cheap enough price, maybe worth the buy-in?
