Porsche didn’t really have a lot going on in the early 1990s. For the 1990 model year, they had the 911, the aging 928, and the 944. I suppose you could count the 959 as well, but production “officially” ended in 1988 with a handful per year being made up until 1993. That means your options were quite limited if you wanted a Porsche but thankfully there was the 944 S2 Cabriolet if you coveted a convertible but didn’t have 911 money. Truth be told, I think the 944 S2 looks great considering what it is and the improvements that were made over the years along with an adequate inline-four that came in with slightly over 200 horsepower. After these became “old” cars, prices have stayed low enough that anyone on a small budget could swing one as long as they had a Porsche specialist in the general area that didn’t hate working on them.
Today we have a 1990 up for sale in Texas that seems to be up to date in service but isn’t exactly matching the asking price when it comes to the cosmetics of the car.
Who knew it would be so hard to spend several hundred thousand dollars on a very niche car? In the latest episode of “Buying a new car is a miserable experience” we have the drama surrounding the new Porsche GT cars and people getting their feelings hurt over it. The short of it is select loyal customers are given allocations to new GT3 and GT4 RS cars only for them to be offered up on the used market for tens of thousands of dollars over what they paid after they took a few laps around the cul-de-sac. This leads to the salesman down at the dealership that sold the car to the owner texting threatening messages to the owner stating their relationship is over in the same style as 15-year-olds do when a member of the opposite sex is spending a little bit too much time at another person’s locker in between classes at the junior high school. I wish I was joking.
Today, we have a 2023 GT4 RS up for sale in California with actually a fair amount of miles on the odometer, a whole 717, for around $100,000 over what the sticker price was. Worth it to not deal with a dealer?
Sometimes green works, while other times it was a bad idea. Today’s car, a 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera finished in Python Green, might just miss the mark. It isn’t the color that is the problem, but rather everything else that was optioned, or rather wasn’t, that maybe causes this one to look a bit odd. We’ve seen green 992s previously and it very clearly can work, but whoever spec’d this one needed some design help. Let me explain.
