2012 Porsche 911 Club Coupe

You might have a rare car, but do you have one of 12 rare? Well, technically one of 13 but I’ll explain that in a second.

This is a 2012 Porsche 911 Club Coupe. The story goes that Porsche produced this to commemorate the first 13 Porsche club members in 1952. Based on the 991 Carrera S, all were finished in Brewster Green over Expresso Brown leather and were equipped with the Powerkit, SportDesign bodywork, 20″ wheels with matching spokes, PASM, ceramic brakes, the Bose audio system, adaptive headlights, front and rear parking assist, auto-dimming mirrors, and aluminum trim. 12 lucky owners were chosen from a Porsche club raffle, and one of the 13 cars stayed with Porsche for their collection. Sticker price was around $140,000 and judging by the asking price of this one, it was money well spent.

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

Crazy to think that the older 991-generation of Porsche 911 is now 10 years old. Time stops for no one and here we are. For myself, I loved and still do admire the 991. There is nothing conversational or risky about it, other than maybe it is a little large. However, cars growing in size aren’t exactly unique to Porsche, as every car has grown outside of the really niche models. If I had my choice, I’d have a 991 GT3 and call it a day, but for around $60,000 less, I’ll take today’s car: a 2012 911 Carrera S coupe.

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S

I suppose one of the great things about cars is there is always more to learn. Today’s car is one of those moments where I was pleasantly surprised to learn something totally new. You might be looking at that photo above and saying “Yes, that is a 1997 911 Turbo S.” I also as a reasonable person with Porsche knowledge jumping to that conclusion also. Why? All the 993 Turbo S cars have unique venting in the rear quarter panels I thought were only used on that model. Not even the standard 993 Turbo has it. Well, the car we are looking at today is a 1997 911 Carrera S. How did it get those vents in the front of the rear wheel arches? Apparently, it was a very rare option. If you ordered “X79 – Side air vents on rear wings” you could have those little vents, but considering this is the first non-Turbo S I’ve ever seen them on, I’d say they are pretty rare.

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.

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!
