Talk about a bright color. This is a 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 Club Sport finished in the crazy and peculiarly named Yellow Green. Yes, that is the name of the color. Yellow Green. It’s not even a bad German translation either. GelbgrÃ¼nÂ is literally Yellow Green. Either way, I hope you like being noticed and driving around in pain because you’ll be doing that in this car and paying $200,000 for the privilege of doing so.
Hard to believe we are here, or maybe not, but the best of the best 996 Porsche 911 Turbos are transacting for over $100,000. I suppose it was inevitable as rising tides lift all boats, but I didn’t see it coming this fast. Keep in mind I’m talking about the standard 996 Turbo, not the GT2 or GT3, as those are already well into their own categories of crazy growth. Still, would you take this over a classic 930 Turbo? I’m not sure.

If you thought the 996 Porsche 911 GT2 was the final boss as one of the last “windowmaker” 911s, let me introduce the 911 GT2 Clubsport. Just 70 Clubsport-optioned 996 GT2s were produced, all for Europe, and were equipped with a roll cage, Recaro racing seats with six-point harnesses, a fire extinguisher, and a battery cut-off switch. Basically, this was a track-ready example without all the work of sourcing the parts. This one made its way to the US via a lengthy by renowned specialists JK Technologies of Baltimore, and is now up for sale in everyone’s favorite playground: Miami, Florida.

Some days I really like yellow cars. Other days I do not. This might be one of those days I don’t like it. What we are looking at today is a 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo obviously finished in Speed Yellow, but to me it just feels a little too light. I looked at a 2004 GT2 last month that was also in finished in Speed Yellow, but comparing those two cars, they feel totally different to me. Maybe it is just the 996 vs 997 thing, but this Turbo just seems like a real let down to me when it comes to wowing me with the color. Your thoughts?
