Pick of the Day: 2005 Porsche 911 Turbo S

A great value supercar


As I mentioned in my last Pick of the Day about the E93 BMW M3 I am always trying to figure out what the next new collector car is going to be. I am also always on the lookout for cars that I honestly feel are tremendous values in today’s market.

While I was talking to one of my best friends, Trent, a few days ago, we found a car on ClassicCars.com that is not only a true future collector car but is also a great value in the market. In addition, this specific example is an excellent deal on one of these cars. The Pick of the Day is 2005 Porsche 911 Turbo S listed for sale on ClassicCars.com.

The Turbo S is a true supercar of the mid 2000s era and is not only remarkably fast but is also the single best 2000s era supercar that is as good a car on the track as it is as a daily driver. Capable of a 0-60 time of 4 seconds and a top speed of 190 MPH, but still a great car to take to work or the grocery store. Only around 1,500 total 996 Turbo S cars were built which makes them very rare cars.

The Flowery Branch, Florida, dealer offering up this car has placed a great ad for it with all the information about this car a buyer would want. The car is painted in GT Metallic Silver with a Natural Grey leather interior which unlike the typical Porsche 996 boring grey leather is much darker and almost black in color. The has covered 71,736 miles from new.

Standard equipment on the Turbo S includes Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) and the X50 Turbo Power Kit, which included revised engine management software and larger turbochargers and intercoolers for a factory rating of 444 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque.

This specific Turbo S is also loaded with options including heated front seats, dual electric sport seats, lots of exterior color interior parts, and a full leather interior with every available leather interior option.

This Turbo S is said to have been well cared for its entire life and had a major service in 2019, with 63,829 miles on the odometer. This service also included a new clutch disc, release bearing, bearing fork, clutch slave cylinder, accumulator, and coolant hose. 

There is one change I would make to this car and that would be to buy a Porsche Classic radio for it to make it work with the latest technology, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. That’s it. It’s the same color as the Carrera GT, has great options and is not only rare but also reliable.

With an asking price of only $73,900 this car is an absolute no brainer for anyone searching for a supercar that is also easy to live with.
