I hope you like gold.
This is a 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo finished in paint to sample Opal Metallic with matching wheel centers over a Cashmere and Mocha leather interior. I don’t know what more to really say about it. It is a unorthodox combination that probably no one would order today, but then again we do have people paying $13,000 to paint their GT3 in Ivory. Still, I think we can appreciate this car for what is it and admire from a far. Because that is exactly what I’m going to do after seeing the price.
I personally regard the 991 generation Porsche 911 Turbo as the “cheat code” of the automotive world. Especially the Turbo S. It’s one thing to have a car do 0-60 runs in 2.6 seconds. It’s a whole other thing to have a car do 0-60 runs in 2.6 seconds and be totally comfortable doing so while being able to drive it 365 days a year. Not to mention it be reasonably reliable and won’t kill you in service costs. Where do I sign?
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. Gelbgrün 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.
A handful of months ago I took a look at a Porsche with a very interesting package that you probably never heard of. It wasn’t an official package per se, but Porsche greenlit a series of cars all with the relatively same options and dealers called it the “000 Package.” That of course was in reference to 000 Magazine and Pete Stout. You can go back and read the original post that explains more and gives a full breakdown on equipment and options.
Today, we have one of the 000 Package cars up for sale in, you guessed it, California, with a few more options than the first car and a lower price. Funny how that works.
I don’t want to start celebrating yet, but it looks like the prices Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 are starting to soften just a bit. Don’t get excited yet as they still are bringing right around sticker price plus tax, so it is an improvement over the previous $15,000 over instantly. I think we’ll see some more slow drops as mileage racks up and of course, GT4 RS examples start getting out, but it shows that these might not be a car that sells for over sticker price forever. They simply are making too many of these for them to be truly limited and now that it isn’t king of the Cayman hill, they’ll be softening.
Today, we have a wonderful paint-to-sample 2022 in Gulf Blue and a whole bunch of other options that someone paid a lot of money for.
