2012 Porsche 911 Turbo S "Edition 918 Spyder"

Up for auction is this incredibly rare 2012 997 Turbo S “918 Spyder Edition”.  The model was originally offered to 918 Spyder customers as an exclusive option.  Instantly recognizable by its Acid Green accents, each car is numbered and corresponds with the 918 Spyder that the owner had ordered alongside of it.  This Turbo S is being offered in pristine condition out of a collection in Georgia with only 11,557 on the odometer.

The all original black paint on this Turbo S is flawless and shines brilliantly.  The seller also notes that this car has a ceramic coating, allowing for effortless maintenance of the paint.  Eye-catching Acid Green model designations and brake calipers help set this car apart from standard variations.  This Turbo also highlights an exclusive carbon fiber package, only found elsewhere on the Porsche GT2.  This 997 rides on original black painted 19” RS Spyder center-lock wheels that are  in excellent condition.  The seller notes that the car has always been kept in a climate controlled environment.

As can be expected, the full black leather interior is in excellent condition.  Acid Green accented stitching helps to complete the unique and sporty nature of this Turbo.  With an MSRP of $168,085 this Turbo showcases many desirable options such as:

  • Heated Seats
  • Park Assist System
  • SiriusXM(TM) Sat Radio Tuner
  • PCM Package in Leather
  • Steering Column Casing Leather
  • Inner Sill Finishers Leather
  • Footrest in Sport Look
  • Fuel Tank Cap in Aluminum Look
  • Interior Light Cover in Leather

This like-new interior is entirely unmodified and all electrical systems and accessories are in perfect working order.

Accelerating from 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds and achieving top speeds of over 195mph, the 997 Turbo S remains one of the fastest cars in the Porsche lineup.  Its twin-turbo 3.8L flat-six engine produces a whopping 530HP and is paired to a 7-speed PDK transmission, sending power to all four wheels. Stopping power comes from PCCB (Carbon Ceramic Composite Brakes), a highly desirable option among Porsche models. This Turbo S has been cared after diligently, always receiving timely maintenance and scheduled services.  With just over 11k miles from new, this Turbo S will satisfy even the most discerning collector. 

The sale of this very special 997 will include a clean Carfax, all original documentation, books, keys, original window sticker, and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.  With only 78 total coupes ever produced, this is an exceedingly rare opportunity to own a very unique and highly collectible 997 Turbo S.

    I have the identical car, #82. The new owner will find that he is the center of attraction at any event that he takes this to. The factory doesn't show any great performance changes over the same year 911 TS. I am not so sure. I have several others similar ilk and this one does better on all counts. The same tune is in all of them so it should not be specific but seems to be, just never had it on the dyno. My only problem with the car is that #82 918 comes available in Sept. this may be a very costly reverse addition.

    I hope the new owner enjoys it as much as I have.

  • aeroSojl67 4 months, 3 weeksago

    So cool to see a car as an OPTION for a 918 Spyder build. Literally some first world stuff right here.

    Amazing collection of cars shown in video. Wow!

  • AutoXperts (seller) 4 months, 3 weeksago

    Yes, you are correct. this car was available as an "option" on the build sheet for only the first 918 Spyder buyers. Porsche did it for two reasons. First, they knew it was going to take over a year to finish production of the 918's and this would hopefully give those buyers something to have indicating they actually had one on order. Secondly, Porsche was trying to finish using their last few 997 Body's since the 991 Body was coming out. Many people believe there are 918 made which is not true, their were 918 of the "918 Spyders" made and these cars would have the same car build number as their 918 counterparts. However only 78 buyers checked the $168K option box for their number matching Turbo S! Just lets you know how Rare this Turbo S model is and the provenance needed to even have the opportunity to purchase it!

  • VFPorsche 4 months, 4 weeksago

    I have read about this car but never actually seen one in person. Absolutely beautiful. Is it true that the only people porsche would make one of these for were people that committed to the purchase of a 918 that had already set them back close to 1 million dollars.
