I have two for this round. Both are pretty amazing cars, but a bit on the higher end. Thanks to Joe for getting the first one below on the radar.
Tempting Porsche #1
The first is a 2006 911 Carrera 4S that Joe, one of our fine PorschePerfect.com readers, sent our way. The car looks gorgeous inside and out from the pictures. Although I’m not usually a fan of tan interior, this is the second late model 911 I’ve seen in the last week that had tan interior I would love to have.
Here are some of the highlights from the ad:
Black w/Tan Interior, 6 Speed Manual, 45,000 Miles
Features Include AWD, Leather, Traction Control, MP3 Audio, Xenon Headlights, Alloy Wheels, Keyless Entry, Rear Spoiler, Self-Leveling Headlights, Rain Sensing Windshield Wipers, Headlight Cleaners, Automatic Delay Off Headlights, Automatic Climate Control, Stability Control and More!
Really, it has about every option you would want. Here’s the best part…
Based on my usual, “offer them at least five grand less” mentality, I bet you could start at $38,500 and come up to around $41,500. The car books on NADA.com for $65,975 Clean Retail. Sure that’s a little high even in the best economic conditions, but you’re still looking at a late model Porsche for nearly 1/3 off what it should come close to selling for.
Tempting Porsche #2
The second Tempting Porsche today isn’t quite as good of a deal, but I kind of fell in love with this car last week when I stopped by to look at it. Course, it doesn’t take a whole lot for me to fall in love with a Porsche, so maybe take that with a grain of salt.
This one is a grey on grey 2005 911 Carrera Cabriolet. Normally I don’t love colored wheels, but these look really sharp and “make” the car. It’s definitely like a lot of cars…it looks much better in person than in the pictures.
Here are some specs on the car:
Power everything, Traction control, Heated seats, AM/FM/CD/CD Changer, Bose premium sound, Alarm, Remote keyless entry, Memory seat, Paddle shift, Rain sensing wipers, Xenon headlights, Non-smoking owner, Factory warranty
Tiptronic transmission, Only 22,357 miles
Another one that is priced pretty far under book. The dealer claims Kelly Blue Book values the car at about $63,000. Nada.com shows the Clean Retail value at $56,900. If you could pick up the car for around $43,000 or $43,500, you’d still be well back of even the most conservative book value and have a great car you could just drive and enjoy. Now’s a great time to be looking for a convertible for the summer!
