This is the collectable Porsche 911 Turbo S you’ve never heard of

It's called the Porsche 911 Turbo S 918 Spyder Edition and it is very special indeed

In this day and age, Porsches are becoming more popular and more collectable than ever before. For example, an old 964-generation 911 can be worth upwards of £40,000 in 2021 which just seems ludicrous considering they were worth nothing just a few years ago.

So when it comes to spotting the next big trend in Porsche sales, it can be rather tricky, but this is anyone's safest bet when it comes to buying a relatively modern 911 as an investment.

The Porsche in question is a limited edition car made up of just 918 examples. It is called the 911 Turbo S 918 Spyder edition and it is essentially a 997-generation Turbo S with lots of writing all over it.

Aside from the 918 Spyder logos dotted around the car, this limited edition Turbo S is no different to any other one you'll find on the road. For example, it comes with the same engine as any other Turbo S of that time which is a 3.8-litre flat-six mated to a seven-speed PDK that produces 530hp.

The reason it's so special is that it was built between 2012 and 2013 – the same time as the 918 Spyder was in production. That is why this special model features so many acid green nods to its more superior hypercar relative.

Brand new these retailed for £117,000 for the coupe and £125,000 (without considering inflation) for the convertible variant. This was an awful lot of money back then and it still is now – especially when you consider a brand new 992-gen Turbo S will set you back around £160,000.

This is why we think these will be worth a bob or two in the coming years. No, this isn't financial advice but it is highly likely limited edition Porsches such as this one will shoot up in value. Just look what's happened to the Porsche 924 Carrera GT and 944 Turbo S.

Had you heard of this before?

  • Something looks wrong.

    The stance for starters. It appears to be sitting very high for a 911. It looks ungainly.

    The tires dont fit the wheel well correctly, far too much gap.

    I may be very wrong but for a car thats supposed to be this special it’s not right.

    • Might be for a rough market, wouldn’t be surprised if Porsche add a couple of inches for poor markets with terrible roads.
