As you probably know, we're in a bit of a bubble with the Porsche 911. While "standard-fare" models like the regular 997 or the 996 Carrera 4S haven't really gone up much in value, special 911s -- from the 1960s and 1970s, for instance, or unique recent models -- have shot up to ridiculous numbers. Just how ridiculous? Well, these are the five most expensive Porsche 911s currently listed on Autotrader -- and since Autotrader doesn't include listings for vintage cars, each of these represents one of the newest models that has seen the biggest jumps in value over the last few years.

2011 Porsche 911 GT3RS 4.0

1. 2011 Porsche 911 GT3RS 4.0 -- $500,000

The GT3RS 4.0 was the ultimate version of the 997-model Porsche 911, which was sold from 2005 to 2012. Back then, the "GT" lineup was tiered: You had the standard GT3, then the standard GT2, then the racing-friendly GT3RS and GT2RS. And then, at the very top, the GT3RS 4.0: the ultimate version of Porsche's ultimate sports car, made in tremendously small numbers. This one is among the few GT3RS 4.0 models for sale anywhere right now, and it's available from a private seller in Manhattan for $500,000.

1992 Porsche 911 Turbo

2. 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo -- $495,000

The "964"-era Porsche 911 Turbo is among the rarest 911 Turbo models, simply because the 964 is among the rarest 911s -- largely a function of Porsche's own struggles during the early 1990s. This particular 964 Turbo is especially unusual, with a custom paint scheme and a one-owner Carfax report -- along with just 712 original miles on the odometer. It's offered by Crave Luxury Auto in the Houston suburb of The Woodlands, Texas, for a jaw-dropping $495,000 -- but then, you'll probably never find another one like it.

2011 Porsche 911 GT2RS

3. 2011 Porsche 911 GT2RS -- $460,997

The 911 GT2RS was only offered on the "997" body style and just for one model year -- 2011 -- before being discontinued as the "991" variant of the 911 made its debut in 2012. Offering huge power and rear-wheel drive only, as opposed to the all-wheel drive that's standard in most 911 Turbo models, the GT2RS required serious skill to drive. It also requires serious money to own: This black GT2RS is offered by CNC Motors in Southern California with just 7,500 miles on the odometer -- and a price tag of $460,997.

1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S

4. 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S -- $429,700

The "993"-generation Porsche 911 -- sold from 1995 to 1998 -- is regarded as being one of the all-time classics. Not only is it the last air-cooled Porsche, but many enthusiasts feel it was the last 911 before the car really started adding the weight and luxury it's now known for. Among 993 models, the ultra-rare Turbo S is king of the hill, as it's the most powerful and least common variety. This particular 993 Turbo S is proving its rarity with an amazing asking price of $429,700 from United Imports in Jacksonville, Florida.

1989 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet

5. 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet -- $399,888

The original Porsche 911 Turbo, dubbed the 930 and sold from the late 1970s through 1989, has a (well-deserved) reputation as a car that took true skill and precision to drive properly -- as it was made without all-wheel drive or any of the other electronic driving aids that benefited later models. The 1989 model "930" is especially revered, as it hails from the final year -- and the only year the car was offered with a 5-speed manual transmission rather than a 4-speed. This particular version is especially impressive, because it's a rare Cabriolet, while most were coupes -- and because it's covered just 1,313 miles over its long lifespan. It's offered for $399,888 by CNC Motors in Southern California.
