2009 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I’m a sucker for a smooth blue, and that is certainly what we have today in this 2009 Porsche 911 Carrera. This color, Aqua Blue, is a shade you don’t see often despite being an option on the 997.2 – and I’m not sure why. It certainly looks great and can pair up just fine with the tan, grey, and black leathers. Whatever is the case for why it was not ordered much, if you are looking for a deal because this is a base C2, it will not be found here.

2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

Sometimes there is more to the story than we know. Perhaps it is some funny business behind the scenes, a sale that really didn’t happen, or just some straight-up fraud. Today’s car, a 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4s, might not be any of those things, but something isn’t adding up here.

I thought I recognized this car and turns out I did as it was recently sold at Gooding & Co. Amelia Island auction back in early March as part of the late-Rudy “Mr. 993” Mancinas collection. It was a fairly nice 996 C4S, but had a good number of miles on it at nearly 86,000. What is an early C4S with that many miles worth? Usually in that $40,000-50,000 range for a nicer color and cool options like this. Even Gooding estimated $40,000 – $60,000. Totally reasonable. What did end up selling for? $72,800. Yikes. That is 996 Turbo money easily. Now, a month later, the car is back up for sale in Charlotte, North Carolina for the price of $70,820. Huh?

1998 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

We made it to April and the convertible season is finally here. Personally, I’m not a huge convertible guy, but I appreciate them, and certainly more so when it’s on an iconic model. For the Porsche 993 generation, Porsche had a tough job to stash the folding soft-top somehow behind the rear seats and in front of the engine firewall, all while making it look good. Truth be told I think they did a great job considering the challenge, but I can’t say I’m ever tempted to go buy one. However, if I were in the market, today’s car might be one of the better ones.

This 1998 911 Carrera Cabriolet up for sale in Miami has the understate black exterior but went all in with Lobster Red leather on basically everything. Even better, this one has some extra goodies to top it all off.

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Even though Porsche produced almost 200,000 G-Series cars from 1973 to 1989, that doesn’t mean they are getting any less expensive. Looking back ten years ago, you could grab a regular Carrera coupe in the $25,000 – 30,000 range be totally content with your purchase. Today? Double that. This is the reality of buying cool old sports cars in the year 2022 and it seems like there are plenty of buyers out there for them. Today’s car, a 1986 Carrera coupe in White Gold Metallic surely has all the looks, but the price? Well, it’s tough to swallow.

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.

2009 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I think as much as I fantasize about daily driving a Porsche 911 GT3 or at least using it for all my mundane tasks that require driving, it probably isn’t the best idea ever. Outside of the ride being extremely stiff, you plain old just put a bunch of wear on the car doing something any car could do. In a sense, it’s massive overkill. However, you can still can get your 911 fix by being a reasonable person and do what most people do: just buy a Carrera 2. It is still an extremely capable and rewarding sports car, but it’s also tame enough to handle the daily driving duties. Not to mention they are nearly half the price as a GT3 in the same chassis. Today, we might have one of these perfectly daily-driver 911s without spending anywhere near $100,000.

1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

No, that isn’t a typo for the year. What we are looking at today is a 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet that doesn’t look like a 1987, but rather some year between 1995 and 1998. That wouldn’t be a huge deal other than the fact it is an entirely different chassis. What I’m trying to say is that someone took a G Body car and turned it into a 993 cosmetically. My guess is something like this happened way back when old 911s were downright cheap to what they sell for today and cutting up two 911s to make one 911 wasn’t seen as something totally insane to do. The good thing a quick look outside will have most convinced that you own a newer 993. However, the interior leaves a lot to be desired.

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?

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

There is certainly something about a G-Body Porsche 911 in a shade of green. The G-Body is arguably the most iconic shape of the 911 and certainly one of the most recognizable, so when you pair it with today’s color, Moss Green Metallic, it is a home run for me. Normally green makes up just 1% to 3% of total car production, and that is for both the car industry as a whole and for Porsche specifically. So if you feel like you don’t see a lot of green cars out there, you aren’t wrong. This 1986 up for sale in Italy is well into the “driver” category with over 100,000 miles, but that doesn’t mean it is going to come cheap. Nope, not at all.

2014 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

I know there is a massive yearning for the lightweight aircooled Porsche 911s, but given how Porsche had to deal with, the 991 generation turned out pretty good. It surely isn’t ugly or offensive in terms of styling, and the performance is always at the world standard in terms of how they manage so much performance out of a flat-six engine that fits behind a set of the rear seats. I don’t think there is single variant of the 991 that you couldn’t drive everyday if you were brave enough, granted there was no snow on the roads, and still be extremely comfortable doing it. Even the base model C2 examples, like the one we are looking at today, still brings strong performance terms of power and numbers. The thing I have to wonder is, how far will they fall in terms of price?
