2004 Porsche Carrera GT

Just when you thought last week’s 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 was wild with Amaranth Violet, we have another Purple Porsche that is on a whole other level. This 2004 Carrera GT checks in with paint-to-sample Viola Pearl and I’m willing to bet it is the only one. It was delivered new in Missouri of all places but quickly transported to its first owner in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. From there, it went to a few owners before being exported to England where it sits having just 7,500 miles.

2022 Porsche 718 Spyder 000 Package

I’m a sucker for special editions and crazy packages, and today’s car is something I didn’t expect to see come from Porsche. What we have today is a 2022 Porsche 718 Spyder with the 000 Package. What exactly is that? 000 Magazine, which is a really great quarterly if you can swing the price, partnered up with the Porsche Exclusive department to offer a package that bundled a bunch of different options today. It was offered in four colors: GT Silver Metallic, along with paint-to-sample shades of Brewster Green, Albert Blue, and today’s color, Slate Grey. You also got the interior trimmed in Ascot Brown leather, LED Headlights with PDLS+, brake calipers in high-gloss black, black brushed aluminum trim, and illuminated doorsills in stainless steel with the 000 logo. If you opted for GT Silver Metallic, the pricing came in at $143,380. However, add another $13,000 for those other paint-to-sample colors. All in, you are probably around $160,000. Do you want exclusive? You’ll pay.

2001 Porsche 911 Turbo

If you are going to go Dragonfly Turquoise Metallic, you might as well go all in. I’m sure that isn’t exactly what the old saying is, but in this situation, I’ll buy it. What we are looking at here today is a 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo in the paint-to-sample share of Libelltürkis Metallic. You might remember this exact color from the 1996 911 Carrera 4S I looked at earlier this summer. It looks like Porsche kept that color on top and had enough of it to also paint the legendary Turbo Twist wheels in that color as well. On the inside? Well, surely you weren’t expecting something tame.

2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Someone here knew what they were doing. Generally, when product allocators sit in their cubicles somewhere in state that gave them the biggest tax break to set up operations there, they cast a far and wide net mixed with a little bit of strategy. They want vehicles that are appealing and easy to sell to the most amount of people possible. That means lots of neutral colors, but also understanding that cars that have certain options go to certain places. A car with the Cold Weather Package probably doesn’t need to be dumped at a dealer in Miami, and a convertible in Speed Yellow isn’t likely to get allocated to Fargo, North Dakota. However, you do have that handful of custom orders that don’t need any of that given you know exactly where the car is going and who is buying it.

Today, I think we might have one of those cases based on the specification, but sadly it looks like it never went into the garage of the person who ordered it given it has just 81 miles. You’ll see what I mean.

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo

For me, the 993 generation of the Porsche 911 Turbo just gets it right. Clearly I’m not alone in feeling this way given the way values have gone in the past year and a half or so. There will never be another aircooled 911 Turbo unless the air is coming from fans cooling giant battery packs. Even watching those old MotorWeek reviews, they even went so far as to call the 993 Turbo “one of the most capable road cars ever built.” I certainly don’t disagree given over 25 years later it can still call itself “fast.” However, is it worth the massive buy in and higher-than-average repair bills?
