This is one of those cars that would have gone on my Ultimate Car List had I had the room. I’ve always had a fascination with the 911 Speedsters. I love the primarily open air version of the 911, the flared rear fenders like the 911 Turbo, and the raked windshield. It gives the car such a hunkered down bad boy look.
Course, this is also one of those cars that would be tough to own due to it’s collectible status. Not only will it be increasingly tough to find a good example, but the price should continue to move up nicely. The real rub is whether or not you could drive and enjoy a car like this. I’d constantly be worried about it being in the parking lot, getting rock chips, etc. There were only 2,100 of them made and only 800 made it to the US.
Still, be an amazing car to own and this particular one is in exceptional condition. It has just over 28k miles and the owner mentions it being near perfect in every way. Sounds like a bit of a collector, with the collector’s attitude to go along with it. Check out his ad:
I DO NOT THINK YOU WILL FIND ANOTHER THAT CAN MATCH THIS CAR FOR ANY PRICE ANYWHERE. MY BUY IT NOW PRICE IS MY BOTTOM LINE PRICE. IF THE CAR DOES NOT SELL IT WILL BE RETURNED TO MY LONG TERM COLLECTION. DO NOT MISS OUT AS I WILL NEVER OFFER THIS CAR AGAIN IN MY LIFETIME. AND IT WILL NOT BE SEEN AGAIN BY THE WORLD.
Guess when you’ve got the cash to collect cars like this, you can do and say about anything you want. It’s currently at $34,100, but his reserve is somewhere nearer the $55,000 range. He wasn’t specific about it, just said he’d had offers above $55k.
A car like this is definitely on my list to own someday. Maybe one that’s been driven a bit that I could enjoy without worrying about rock chips, door dings, etc.
