Well, there is a first time for everything. In over 1,000 cars I’ve looked at, I’ve yet to actually check one out in person before giving my opinion on it. That changes today with this 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2. However, this car just wasn’t conveniently for sale down the street. Oh no. I peeled myself out of my chair, jumped on two planes, three trains, and walked a mile to the sleepy town of Brummen, the Netherlands to Gallery Aaldering. This is a place I’ve featured a handful of times before just because of their crazy collection, including a Wiesmann that was still there! Ordinary people go to the beach, I just visit car dealerships.
One thing about the Porsche Carrera GT is that it makes no apologies. There is no additional single clutch gearbox for people who want to just scoot around, no soft comfort seats, and certainly, nothing to save you when things get hairy. It is pure take it or leave it and if you are brave enough, you can find out what the limit really is in one of these. I think that is one part of why these have shot up in value like crazy as there certainly will never be another car like the Carrera GT. Today’s car, a Guards Red example up for sale in California, certainly brings one of those crazy price tags but also a fair amount of miles for one of these.

It always surprises me when I see paint to sample colors on seemingly ordinary cars that are made to be leased and turned in for the new model three years later. That is exactly what the Macan is because almost none one is buying the entry-level Porsche Macan to be a collector car that is made to be kept forever. That begs the question why spend $13,150 on a color when you know that this isn’t going to be a long-term hold. Yes, it is a Macan GTS, but when you see this asking price, you’ll have to ask why not just spring for a Cayenne GTS.
