Porsche 911 SC
The prices of air-cooled 911s have shot up in recent years. Just about five years ago you could still find a good Porsche 911 SC in the $15,000 – $20,000 range. Even a 911 Carrera 3.2 could be had for under $30,000 in good condition.
Now, if you want an affordable 911 the 996 is the one to look into. In every way, except maybe the headlights and if an IMS update hasn’t been done, the 996 is a better car than the earlier 911s. However, there is a soul in the air-cooled cars with their unique sound and analog driving experience.
That is exactly why the air-cooled cars are going up in value. But is it too late to get a 911 with an air-cooled flat-six?
