This Is The Most Collectable Modern 911 Turbo Ever Built
Back in 2012, Porsche realized the lucky nine hundred eighteen buyers of the 918 Spyder hypercar might get a little antsy while they waited for their hypercars to be delivered. Luckily Porsche had a solution, offer 918 Spyder owners the optional extra of a matching 911 Turbo S to drive around while they waited for their hypercar to be delivered. Today one of these 911 Turbo S 918 Spyder Editions is for sale on Bring a Trailer and promises to be a coveted Porsche collectable you need to buy.
Buying a hypercar must be quite an experience. I imagine the waiting is something like a child dreaming of the moment the chocolate chip cookies are finally out of the oven. However, waiting sucks so kids lick the spoon used to mix the cookie dough while they watch the cookies bake. The 918 Spyder Edition 911 Turbo is that cookie batter covered spoon that held over 918 owners on those cold nights when their hybrid hypercar was being painstakingly assembled in Germany.
This optional extra did not cost anymore than a comparable 911 Turbo S at the time, which is admirable since Porsche could have introduced huge markups. The Coupe set owners back $160,700 and the Cabriolet was $172,100, not bad for a highly collectable 911. But still, spending over $170,000 on a optional extra on a car sounds ridiculous even if it is an entire additional car.
These special edition 911 TurboS's featured a plethora of Acid Green accents that paid homage to the 918 Spyder hypercar. These accents made their way to the brake calipers for the carbon ceramic, interior stitching, exterior badging, gauge cluster, and steer wheel to name a few places. The Acid Green accents differentiated these special edition cars from more numerous normal 911 Turbos and reminder owners that soon their hypercar will arrive.
There's no official production numbers for this special edition 911 Turbo S 918 Spyder Edition but production numbers must be below 918 examples. This was actually quite a popular option when the 918 debuted but there had to be a few owners who already had enough 911s in their collection, if that's even possible.
The 911 Turbo S 918 Spyder Edition is set to be the next hyper expensive collectable 911 you wish you bought. It has all the proper Porsche collectable criteria, its rare, has a sprinkling of special badges, and one day it will be old, then the trifecta will be reached and you will be rich!
