|The 550 Spyder enjoyed a storied career, with 90 examples being built. Of those 90 cars, 43 of them were built as non-race, “customer cars".|
The 550 Spyder was powered by a flat-4 producing 110hp sent through a four-speed manual transmission.
|The Porsche 906 or Carrera 6 was the last street-legal racing car from Porsche. It was announced in January 1966 and 50 examples were subsequently produced, meeting the homologation requirements of the FIA's new Group 4 Sports Car category.|
The 1966 Porsche 906 was powered by a 1991cc flat 6. The engine regularly fitted was the 901/20 lightweight racing engine with 220 hp and carburetors.
|Some examples that were raced by the factory team received fuel-injected or 8-cylinder engines.|
|At the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 906 placed 4-5-6-7 behind three Ford GT40 Mk IIs, outlasting all of the previously dominant V12-engined Ferrari Ps|
|A 1966 Porsche 906 Carrera 6 appeared for auction last year in Scottsdale with an estimated value of between $2 million and $2.4|
|In stock form the 911 GT2 RS has a power to weight ratio of just 2.1–kilograms for horsepower. This means a top speed of 340 km/h and a run from rest to 100 km/h of 2.8 seconds. It hits 200 km/h in 8.3 seconds.|
Base price is $ 294,000.
|If you are looking for an extremely fast, fun to drive sports car with all-wheel drive and more power than ever needed, a 997 Turbo might be the ticket. The Porsche 911 was manufactured and sold by Porsche between 2004 (as Model Year 2005) and 2012. In 2012 it was replaced by the new 991.|
|Now a decade old, the car is not that slower than modern supercars costing ten times as much. The car is capable of a sub 4 second 0-60 time, and boasts a good record of reliability and longevity. The "Mezger" engines in the 2009 and earlier 997 Turbo produced about 480 horsepower and aside from coolant leak issues it has been a faultless engine.|
|The 997 Porsche 911 Turbo gets a lot of attention as the bargain Porsche to buy.|
|Older, air-cooled 911s have skyrocketed in price to the point that they're no longer affordable. The 997 is still unloved among many Porsche fans, and you might pick up a 997 Turbo for something like $50,000.|
|Porsche has released a new video featuring its top five unique and rare factory models of all time. Topping the list is the 356 America Roadster, which is a lightweight version of the car that started it all, produced in just 16 examples that were offered exclusively to the U.S. market. |
At number two spot is the 911 SC RS Group B homologation special. Only 20 units were built. At number three is the 911 GT1. The 911 GT1 was the road-legal variant of the actual race car Porsche made for endurance racing. Porsche built just 21 units of this car. The 924 Carrera GTS is the most hardcore version of the 924 to date.
