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.

2004 Porsche 911 GT3

I don’t want to say I told you so, but literally three years ago I told everyone to buy 996 Porsche 911 GT3s and they’ll thank me. Now, almost every 996 GT3 is pushing six-figures and the really low mile ones sell as much as the 991 GT3. I don’t think they are going to keep climbing like crazy forever given it is a really tough ride and not a great street car, but it seems just saying you own a GT car now is enough and everything else comes second. Today’s example, a 2004 up for sale in Arizona, is not for anyone looking for a deal on this and is probably priced way at the top of the market.

2016 Porsche 911 R

Back in 2016 when the Porsche 911 R broke cover, GT boss Andreas Preuninger said of it, “It’s a car just for a fun day.” Typical German understatement, the same way they claimed they ” … still looks with pride at the honorable record of the Hindenburg and her crew” after their dirigible had an uncharacteristically rough landing. To me, the 911 R is up there with the GT3 RS 4.0 in terms of the best 911s made in the past 20 years and would without a doubt look to own one if I could afford one. That seems unlikely given what they are currently selling for, though…

2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0

In terms of the king of the hill in the Porsche 911 GT world, there are two. One is the 2011 GT2 RS, and the other is today’s car, the 2011 GT3 RS 4.0. Both of them were extremely limited in production, and most importantly, had a manual gearbox. Because of that, they sell for crazy money. Really crazy money. They have the perfect formula to be a really great collector car, and if you have a half a million bucks to spend, it all comes down to whether you want turbochargers or no. I don’t think either can be called better than the other, but for me, I might lean towards this GT3 RS 4.0.

Outside of a handful of paint-to-sample examples, the 600 cars were either offered in black or Carrara White. Today, we have one in British Racing Green. Naturally, I freaked out and thought this might be the best 4.0 ever spec’d out, but was disappointed to see it is wearing a vinyl wrap and not paint. Still, if you have $400,000, I would suggest this purchase.

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring

Say the words “Nogaro Blue” and you’ll perk any German car fans ears. It first showed up on the scene back with the legendary RS2 Avant as RS Blue, but was later renamed Nogaro Blue and has been a staple in the Audi lineup both as a standard color and an Audi Exclusive option you could pay for if your dealer liked you enough. Not only that, but Porsche recently started taking paint-to-sample orders with the 991 even though they literally have handfuls of nearly the same shade of blue. Still, there is bragging rights when you have the Nogaro Blue and that certainly seems to be the case with today’s car.

This 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring finished in the paint-to-sample Nogaro Blue with a black leather interior and some very special CXX option Pepita seat inserts. From there you have a whole other slew of options like the Ceramic Composite brakes, an extended range fuel tank, a front axle lift system, Sport Chrono, Bose audio, and a pile of deviated stitching and extra leather. Who wouldn’t love this one? Well, what if I told you it had just 401 miles? Time to sell the house….
