Always read. I can’t say that strongly enough when it comes to buying cars from private parties and even dealerships. I know everyone just looks at price and then everything else can be judged from that, but often a single sentence can throw everything into a mess if you aren’t careful. Just like we have today with this 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4.
At a quick glance, everything seems in order with this one. A little over 18,000 miles with an asking price of $90,000. I thought it was a little high, but it was probably in the ballpark. Then I saw a single line in the description…
Yellow is not a color that works in every situation. It needs to be the right brand, the right model, and the right shade. A yellow Mercedes-Benz S-Class just doesn’t work. It’s fun and quirky, but not exactly the color you want to look at everyday. However, a yellow Porsche 911? Now we are talking.
This 2018 911 Carrera coupe is just your base model of the 911 line, but still offers a ton of punch from the twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six. If you want the extra excitement, this one has the 7-speed manual if shifting gears is your thing. Only one problem – a nearly five-year old base 911 still has an asking price of over sticker. What the … ?
Oh yellow, how will you make us feel today?
This 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera is wearing Racing Yellow, not to be confused with Speed Yellow, which is very clearly a different shade. Racing Yellow has a little lighter hue and a little more “pop” than what you are used to seeing. While some might not mind this color, I have to warn you the choice of interior leather probably isn’t what you are expecting. It seems to be why this example seems a little less expensive than the current market rate, so let’s peek inside and let me explain.
