Here Are the Coolest Older Porsche 911 Models For Sale on Autotrader

In the world of old Porsche models, pretty much all vehicles are exciting, but some are particularly cool. To demonstrate this, I’ve rounded up five old Porsche 911 models that are both exciting and special — more so than usual. Here’s a look at five of the coolest older 911 models currently listed for sale on Autotrader.

1983 Porsche 911 Safari Conversion

1983 Porsche 911 Safari Conversion

This old-school 911 bucked the trend of keeping things within the confines of the factory’s intent, instead opting for an incredibly cool “safari” look with lifted suspension and many front driving lights. It’s also finished in Rothmans livery, so it looks like a (very special) old Porsche race car. It’s offered by Trissl Sports Cars in Alabama for $123,942. Find a Porsche 911 for sale

1987 Porsche 911

1987 Porsche 911 – 230,000 Miles

This 1987 Porsche 911 isn’t particularly remarkable for any reason, except for the fact that it has covered an amazing 230,000 miles from new, making it the highest-mileage 911 currently listed for sale on Autotrader. The seller doesn’t provide the name of the color, but it appears to be some purple-brown mix. The seller does note that the car was his daily driver for 15 years, which explains the mileage. This 911 is offered by a private seller in Grandville, Michigan, where it’s listed for $34,900. Find a Porsche 911 for sale

1988 Porsche 911 Turbo

1988 Porsche 911 Turbo Slantnose

This 1988 Porsche 911 is no ordinary 1980s 911 Cabriolet. It’s a high-performance Turbo model. And more impressive than that, it’s a factory “Slantnose” vehicle, which means it trades the typical Porsche circular headlights for a flat, sloped-front-end design. These are incredibly rare, especially in this condition — the car has traveled just 3,400 miles from new. This vehicle is offered by Fantasy Junction in the San Francisco Bay Area for $239,500. Find a Porsche 911 for sale

1989 Porsche 911 Speedster

1989 Porsche 911 Speedster – 3,767 Miles

The 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster hails from the final year of the “original” 911, and many consider it to be among the most desirable versions of the car. While it includes a roof, it was designed for open-top cruising. It has a smaller windshield and styling that’s specifically made to look its best when the top is down. This particular Speedster is in unusually nice shape, having traveled just 3,800 miles from new — and it’s offered by Ride Quality Motors in Santa Barbara, California, for $189,000. Find a Porsche 911 for sale

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

The “993” version of the Porsche 911, made from 1995 to 1998, is often considered the best of the breed, and the “Turbo S” model, which was made in insanely small numbers, is the best 993. This example is in incredibly good condition (it has traveled just 7,700 miles from new) and now it’s offered by Marshall Goldman Motors in the Cleveland area for a whopping $595,900. That may sound like ridiculous money, but the Turbo S is an incredibly sought-after car. Find a Porsche 911 for sale

  1. Both the speedster and turbo always were cars I know I always wanted…along with the slantnose. Well about 10-15 years ago they were “bargains”. Will now have to wait for the market to crash.

  2. It’s funny, I guess the market agrees with me as I always loved the 1989 Speedster and was hoping that they would depreciate to a reasonable price, and the 993 Turbo was a favorite of mine since new, although my favorite color on them was Arena Red (but that white does look killer too!).
