1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

Always do your research and read. That is one of the most important aspects of buying a used car, along with asking enough questions to cover all your bases. Even if everything seems okay at first, keep reading and asking questions. Otherwise, one might end up in a situation like today with this 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera S.

This car checks all the boxes on the surface. It’s a C2S in Guards Red with 18″ Turbo Twist wheels and just under 40,000 miles. There’s no surprise that means there is also a big price tag. But there is one big problem that shouldn’t be overlooked here: the title.

1992 Porsche 968 Cabriolet

The 968 stormed out of the gates and straight into the early 1990s recession wielding 236 horsepower from its VarioCam-equipped development of the 3.0 inline-4 from the 944S2. Evolutionary bodywork linked the model more closely with both the 928S4/GT and the 911 range. But with more power on tap than the standard 944 Turbo had in the mid-eighties, the base price was pretty much out of reach for most mortals. In 1992, the MSRP was $39,950 for a stripper Coupe. If you wanted the Cabriolet, you’d pay more than $10,000 additional. And if you opted for a Tiptronic transmission you’d be at $55,000. This is in 1992, mind you! That’s over $106,500 in today’s buying power and the best part of double what a base 718 Boxster stickers for today. Sufficed to say, Porsche didn’t sell a ton of these cars in the middle of a global recession. Today’s car is one of three claimed delivered in the color combination of Amethyst Pearl Metallic with a Magenta top and matching interior:

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S

Brown cars are a funny thing. If you told someone that out of all the colors you could order a car you chose the shade the UPS man prefers, they’d probably call you nuts. However, in some cases after you see it, the results are pretty good. Of course this totally depends on what car we are talking about, but manufacturers have gotten pretty good at mixing that perfect shade that isn’t ugly or offensive. Case in point; Anthracite Brown Metallic on a Porsche 911. It very much has the strong presence of Anthracite in it, but still surely won’t be mistaken for anything but brown. Naturally, you need an interior color to match when you go all-in with the brown, so you’ll not find carbon fiber or deviated green stitching here. Lets check it out.

2014 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

The Porsche 911 Targa is one of those true ‘have your cake and eat it too’ cars that has been carrying on for a few decades now. After all, it was created to answer the rumor that the US was going to ban the sale of convertible cars due to safety reasons, but Porsche, and most importantly their customers, still wanted open-air motoring. What started as a simple removable roof panel transformed into a piece of sliding glass over generations, and now we have an extremely complex folding roof mechanism that you pray never has a fault with it. Still, when it works, it is amazing. So what do you say – are you a Targa fan or not?

1998 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

Just when it looks like 993 prices were stabilizing, here come the Carrera 4S! While the C4S 993 cars always brought a premium based on the good looks borrowed from the Turbo, all of a sudden these are bringing Turbo-like prices. Yes, it makes sense that the really low-mileage examples are bringing big money, but regular examples? Still into the six-figures and then some. This 1998 up for sale in Atlanta has a really healthy amount of miles with a little over 72,000, but the price? Hold your breath.

1974 Porsche 914 1.8

Instead of continuing on my trend of bashing you over the head with 924s you should buy, I thought I’d take a look at Porsche’s other budget entry model – the 914. Relatively unloved by all but those who own them, the 914 is an oddball in today’s market – values are literally all over the map. Perhaps that’s in part because of the array of options offered. Porsche threw several engines at the 914 to see what would stick; from the 1.7 liter flat-four through a 2.0 flat-six borrowed from the 911. Today’s example comes from the 1974 model year, which saw light revisions to the exterior and a new 1.8-liter fuel-injected flat-four enter service at the bottom of the range. But, as usual, it was the color that attracted me to this particular example:

2010 Porsche Cayenne GTS

It is crazy to think that after all the years of sports car bliss that Porsche has provided us, some enthusiasts are also flocking to their platform shared mid-size SUV. Porsche is naturally going all in with the SUV embracing as it just announced the new Cayenne Turbo GT that does 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds. Let me say that again. A Cayenne does 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds. What?

Nonetheless, this is where we are at. Naturally the first generation Cayenne has it fans, but only for the range topping GTS and Turbo models despite all their potential for giant repair bills. This 20101 GTS up for sale in New Jersey has the ingredients with the can’t be missed Nordic Gold Metallic. Time to buy in? Or just another old SUV that will never stop draining you?

2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

We saw what kind of asking prices the 996 Porsche 911 is asking, and I really mean asking, but I still think it might be a sign as to what is to come with that generation. As with everything, the best and most desirable examples get snatched up first, then you make your way down the food chain at a rate that the market demands and of course the supply offers. Thankfully they made a ton of 996s in nearly every flavor, and most of those flavors as relatively appetizing. Today, we have the trusty “not a Turbo but kind of looks like one” Carrera 4S in the always popular Grand Prix White. Inside, black leather. Get one while you can, or still not worth it?

2001 Porsche 911 Carrera

Well, here it is. Just to get the cat out of the bag, this is a 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe with an asking price of $58,000. Uh huh. Not a GT3, not some crazy paint-to-sample example with special wishes, just a Guards Red 996 with a little over 29,000 miles. I know we’ve seen some example of relatively common early 996 examples sell for big money lately, but this one might take the cake. Worth it? Eh.

2007 Porsche Cayman S

The first-generation Porsche Cayman is right in the middle of that no man’s land territory right now. Clearly not new enough to be desired by for those who want the latest and greatest, but not old enough to become a classic. Still, a worthy car given how it dishes out, and most importantly the price they currently command. For the Cayman S, the value becomes even better. The race to 60 mph isn’t mind blowing or even all that impressive with 5.5 seconds needed, but this car is much more than just straight like speed. However, this example up for sale Illinois sure brings the looks, but the price seems to match. Still worth it?
