Bastardized Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet For Sale

Porsche 911 Turbo Ugly Paint Job

I think I’m going to have to start a category called Porsche Pictures That Piss Me Off. This should be post #1 in there. James C. sent me this yesterday saying I “might like this one A LOT!!!” Boy do I EVER!

I’ve long had a love affair with early model Porsche 911 Turbos. Add a slantnose conversion in there and I get weak in the knees. However this one made my stomach turn.

I really don’t get what some people are thinking. To each his own and all that, but still…this looks terrible. Check out some of the verbiage from the auction page:

Gorgeous, Sleek, One of a Kind, Great Condition, Head Turning, Quick, Stylish.

The Paint Job was professionally done by Dangerous Curves.

Car is garaged 95% of the time and is rarely driven…but when it is Everyone Notices.

It’s a head turner alright. More like a gawker. People can’t manage to rip their eyeballs away from the atrocity.

I’m sorry if I’m offending anyone here, but I just can’t get over how someone would actually PAY for this paint job. My son wanted me to email the seller, offer him $10k, then pay to have it repainted. Said we’d have a pretty nice car for a good deal at that point.

Porsche 911 Turbo Ugly Paint Job Interior

On a positive note, I do really like the red gauges. The rest of the interior needs to go back to the original black, but those red gauges would stay if this were my car.

Check out more pics on the auction page here: 1986 Porsche 911 Cabriolet. I can’t imagine this car is going to get a single bid at the $18k starting price, much less make it to the reserve price.

  1. I can’t understand what goes through people’s minds to do things like this. Why would someone paint a Porsche, or any car for that matter, like this? Hope someone buys the car just to repaint it as fast as possible.

  2. yuck. This isn’t a Turbo right? He does have a Turbo badge on the decklid.

  3. This looks truly horrible. A real waste!

  4. I spotted this on ebay and liked it. I copied the photo for ideas for my black Porsche. Seen any rally or track cars lately?

  5. You are right. Get rid of that paint job. Ugly.

  6. I am with you on this one the paint job is atrocious.
