The Total 911 team’s dream £100,000 Porsche 911 garage

After choosing our £30,000 and £60,000 dream garages, last week we jumped right up to a theoretical budget of £250,000, a land where a host of neunelfer exotica lurks.

However, even if you’ve got a slightly lower six-figure budget to splash on a Porsche 911, £100,000 ($150,000) can still get your hands on some of the best Zuffenhausen metal around, both old and new.

Here’s the trio that the Total 911 team have chosen:

The last air-cooled Porsche 911 Turbo has the best of both worlds for me: a traditional 911 feel in terms of its mechanical setup, twinned with superb performance that’s still not deemed slow by today’s standards.

The Porsche 993 Turbo made headlines when examples reached £100,000 last year, but low mileage cars are still climbing so it’s not too late to buy. A 993 Turbo is easy to drive too, so for me it’d get good use on the road when not taking pride of place in my dream garage.

With £100,000 I could, quite comfortably, spec a brand new 991 Carrera or Carrera S. However, while a new 911 appeals to me at this price point, I’d prefer something a little more special. Step forward the brilliant 50 Year Edition.

This is easily the best of Porsche’s Anniversary 911s, complete with Pepita seat centres, chrome trims, and Fuchs-aping alloys. I’ve even managed to find a manual example so I can enjoy that superb 400hp, 3.8-litre flat six to its fullest. And, because it’s through Porsche Approved Used, there’s a two-year warranty.

Having heard the praise from both Lee and Josh about the latest Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, this has to be my choice. For me, those centre-lock wheels really set off this elegantly-styled grand tourer.

The idea of owning the ‘missing link’ between the 991 GT3 and Carrera massively appeals to me; it gives the great performance, handling and fun of the GT3, with the everyday practicality of the Carrera. The subtle-yet-sporty styling is a bonus too!
