Welcome back to Weekend Driver! This issue is coming a bit later in the day so I hope you’re enjoying a nice Friday night beverage, now let’s get to the cars!
2011 BMW 1M
Link: Chicago Motor Cars
The 1M is without a doubt a blue-chip collector car, but prices are all over the place right now. Having owned one, I can tell you the experience does not live up to the hype. That said, there are those of you that will continue to subject yourself to BMW products, so I’ll weigh in on the value here. The price is reasonable but on the higher end for the mileage and options. If you’re dying to have one of these, hunt around, deals are out there.
2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S (991.1 Cup Clone)
Link: Porsche of Colorado Springs
This turbo is pretty crazy. The motorsports division at Porsche of Colorado Springs heavily upgraded this car (at the previous owner’s request). The work consisted of the turbos and aero, including factory GT3 cup components. It is estimated to produce north of 800hp - what a beast. Hard to assess the value as this one is pretty unique but I would estimate that it cost a lot more to build for the previous owner.
2005 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG (6x6 Conversion)
Price: Auction Ending Wednesday July 15, 2020
Link: Cars and Bids
I’ve previously called the G-Wagon 4x4^2 “absurdity incarnate,” and the 6x6 version is no different - but this is absurdity on steroids. This conversion has everything that makes the 6x6 really special, including the portal axles at all 6 wheels and carbon fiber fenders. The seller claims all dimensions are an exact match to a factory 6x6. This thing is epic! This might be your only opportunity (short of building your own) to get one under $1M.
2018 Porsche 911 GT3 (991.2 Touring)
This might be the best GT3 Touring for sale right now, even factoring in the color. I’m no fan of silver, but for the price and other options on the car, this is a great example to buy and drive. You won’t find a cheaper Touring with the full bucket seats which is a must-have option for me.
2016 Porsche 918 Spyder
Link: Atlantis Motor Group
Rounding this issue out we have a very special 918 Spyder that was originally ordered by racecar driver Hurley Haywood. This car is painted in Basalt Black but features a unique matte black wrap with Martini livery, all of which was done at the Porsche factory. It is also the only example I’ve ever seen of Porsche carbon buckets with cloth instead of leather. The seller states that this is the only 918 featuring the “Nomex” interior.
