Tempting Porsches #30

Tempting Porsche #1

The first Tempting Porsche today is one that strikes me as a great deal. It’s a 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera. Silver with black interior. 94,000 miles on it. Here are some details from the ad:

1999 Porsche Carrera Silver/Black Leather interior 94K miles, 6 speed manual trans, power seats, non smoker. Car is tight and drives beautifully. Upgraded performance software and Cold Air Intake Package.

Asking Price: $15,250

That’s a great deal on a fun car. I like the color and it’s tough to beat black interior in my mind. A heck of a lot of car for $15k. I’m not sure what a cold air intake package is. Maybe it’s something to do with the cold climate the car has lived in for the past few years. This car should sell fast.

Tempting Porsche #2

Number two today is a car I’ve never thought much about owning in the modern form. It’s a 2004 911 Targa. Black on black and 98,500 miles on it. Here’s a little more description:

Air conditioning; AM/FM stereo; Single CD player; Cruise control; Power steering; Power windows; Power door locks; Power seats; Leather seats; Tinted windows; Xenon high intensity lights; Driving/fog lights; Anti-lock brakes (ABS); Traction control; Dual front airbags; Front side airbags; Full Leather; Shift Kit; Big Exhaust; Targa Glass Roof

The one you have always wanted…This Porsche is in fantastic condition.  It looks like a 30,000 mile car.  It is fast, fun, super rare…Its been serviced and pampered and loved its whole life.

Asking Price: $27,990

I know this has quite a bit of mileage on it, but a 2004 911 anything for $27,990 seems like a great deal. I’m not sure if the Targa model is less desirable at all. In the Pacific Northwest, the current Targa should actually be MORE desirable given all the bad weather we get. Anything to let in a little more light on the gray days.

I’ve always had a bit of a fascination with older 911 Targas and would love to own one (leaky roofs and all). This car has actually made me reconsider a newer one. Be a steal if you could get this baby for $25k.


  1. Look good. Interesting to see that 996s are cheap in the USA as well as the UK. Early 996s are a bargain if you make sure you get a good one.

    The later Targa looks nice – there are very few glass-tops around.

  2. I like the black one but the price seems high fo the milage.
