Porsche is well respected as one of the world’s most fantastic automakers — one with a rich history and a serious tradition for making unique and amazing cars. Some of those vehicles, though, are rarer than others, and today we’ll be taking a look at which Porsche models are the hardest to track down overall.
Porsche 924 Carrera GTS
Porsche and racing go hand-in-hand, so seeing a model like the 924 Carrera GTS on this list should come as no surprise. This model was developed during a time when Porsche was changing direction on some of their design philosophies, and the end result was a superior racing machine that could get from zero to sixty in six seconds flat, by some reports. You’ll always be able to recognize one of these GTS models by their distinct headlights and even more distinct 80s body-style.
Porsche 911 GT1
The Porsche 911 is a popular model with a lot of history among car enthusiasts and quite the reputation for quality (it’s not likely that you’ll hire the lemon law attorneys at Conn Law because you got a faulty model). Still, the GT1 version of this popular automobile is a bit harder to track down.
Built in the mid 90s, Porsche only made about 20 of these sports prototype vehicles, and they fetch a few million at minimum whenever they go on auction. This model was fast — with a top speed up to 190 mph — and if you ever considered taking to the streets at that speed, the perfect example of why you should hire a car accident lawyer!
Porsche 911 SC/RS
Another variation of the 911 that’s hard to find is the SC/RS model, a rally car that was highly tuned for performance. Customized doesn’t even describe it, as Porsche removed enough of the standard street parts from this model to get the weight down to 2160 pounds, including the rear seats, clock, radio, speakers, and heating system. In the end, it was about 1,000 pounds less than the 911SC standard street car at the same time.
Porsche 356 America Roadster
An American-style Porsche built for a distinctly North American clientele, the 356 America Roadster stripped out all of the comforts and conveniences of the time — carpets, wipers, mirrors, door handles — and leaves just the driver, machine, and road alone to get acquainted. This was a serious racing machine for its era, but Porsche only made 16 of them in total.
Porsche 968 Turbo S
And the rarest Porsche of all? That honor goes to the 968 Turbo S, a street legal version of one of Porsche’s notable race cars (the 968 Turbo RS). While it might not be the looker that some of these other rare models are, there were only 14 of these made in total.
