2012 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Coupe

It’s hard to believe it took Porsche until the facelift generation of the 997 to utilize the GTS moniker on a 911 considering it started way back in 1963 with the 904 Carrera GTS. It had a nice run on the 924, 928, and even the Cayenne of all things before hitting the signature model 911. Strategically, it slotted in perfect between the Carrera S and the hardcore GT3 for the drivers who wanted more but not enough to rattle the fillings out of their teeth. Now, the GTS badge is literally on every model Porsche produces as the value is there for buyers and well, people see it as the true sweet spot of their model range.

Today we have a 2012 up for sale in today in the Bay Area with just under 8,000 miles on the odometer. On the outside you have the classic Basalt Black Metallic, while the interior is covered in Carrera Red leather. This is a special one.

2010 Porsche 911 GT3

When Porsche refreshed the 997, they made sure to remind us all that the GT3 is still very much a track-focus car and was set up as such. We saw much stiffer suspension added, as well as a switch to center-lock wheels to save weight. A cool party trick, but extremely frustrating for the weekend warriors that actually track their GT3s. You did get an increase of 20 horsepower and 17 lb-ft of torque thanks to hotter cams with greater valve lift and the addition of variable valve timing to the exhaust cams. If you sprung for the extremely expensive carbon-ceramic brakes, that shaves 44 pounds from the braking system. High entry costs didn’t stop a lot of people from racking up miles in these cars and we have a perfect example of that with this 2010 for sale in California.

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.
