Auction car prices have been crazy for the past few years, but this one just got resold bring followers dropped my jaw. As rare and special as this 1994 “964” Porsche 911 Turbo S Package is, $1.26 million is still a shocking price. However, when I read more about it and how unique it is, I almost get it.

In 1993, Porsche debuted the 911 Turbo 3.6, which had an improved 3.6-liter single-turbo boxer engine replacing the old 3.3-liter turbo engine. Its 355 hp made it the most powerful Porsche sold in North America and fewer than 1,500 examples were made. Rare, right? Well, Porsche went even further.

Later that year, Porsche decided to produce a special Turbo S model that used Porsche’s “X88” engine mods inspired by the IMSA race cars. That meant a larger turbo, an upgraded intercooler, larger fuel injectors, an upgraded camshaft, and a new exhaust, all boosting power to 380 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque.

Fewer than 100 Turbo S models were made and even fewer made it to North America. Of the Turbo S-Porsches manufactured for North America, 39 were Flatnose models. However, Porsche North America and Porsche Canada applied for some non-flatnose Turbo S models, and 17 of these were made. All 17 had a long list of Porsche Exclusive appointments, including a different front splitter, the iconic whale-tail rear wing, 959-style rear fender vents and special 18-inch three-piece wheels, all of which gave the Turbo S 3.6 the ‘package name. One.’ , which sold for $1.26 million, is one of those 17.

This specific 911 Turbo S 3.6 pack sports a black-on-black color scheme with just some red “Turbo S” logos on the floor mats, a wooden gear knob and a wooden handbrake to add some pop to the interior. According to Carfax, it has had four previous owners, but none of them have driven it much as it only has 8,700 miles and looks minty fresh. And despite its low mileage, its 2022 engine was refreshed with new gaskets.

OK, so one in seventeen makes it extremely rare and it’s an incredibly unique specification of a beloved 911 generation. I do not say I find It’s worth $1.26 million, but I also understand why someone with bottomless pockets would buy it. When you can afford everything, rarity becomes invaluable. The kind of person who can afford a $1.26 million car wants something very few other people in the world own, and this 911 is for you.
