30 Years Later: ’97 Porsche 911C4 S
We featured a ’67 Porsche 911 and thought it would be fun to find one 30 years newer. We were prompted by the most recent issue of Sports Car Market Magazine that provided an in-depth discussion of the rising tide of later Porsche models. Most later model Porsches are not investment grade. They don’t meet the criteria of being more valuable now than they were when new. The experts selected the 993 Widebody S as Speculation Grade because they have been behaving better than most later 911s. We found one of those today: a ’97 911C4 S. A C4 is an all wheel drive Coupe and the ’97 is among the last of the air-cooled Porsches. They built a few air-cooled cars in ’98 too. This one is a stunner. It is a 49,000 mile car with all of the goodies one would expect in a C4 S. Who could argue with Guards Red with tan interior. All of those goodies include dual air bags, ABS, A/C, Cruise, Power windows and locks. Don’t be surprised by that because this is a fairly modern car. What would we do with this Porsche.? Try to keep it forever. Maybe buying a spare set of wheels with Blizzacks on them. The seller is asking a little less than $60,000 and we have to say that is very much in the Speculative Market Pricing category. Click here for the listing.
