what do you guys think on this one

https://collectingcars.com/for-sale/1996-porsche-9...

always loved the 993 turbo shape -

ten years in the gulf

couple of speedo swaps

some farily sketchy paint (?)

4500 miles in the last ten years

but very tidy looking.....

where it going to land? £120?

I’ve always read cars that came from the Middle East are cheaper as they tend not to be looked after. I have no idea what a LHD 993 Turbo would normally go for but the issue that car has is that it would need to be bloody cheap for anyone in Europe to buy it because of the 20% import duty. So natural audience for it is much reduced....you need someone in the UK who wants a LHD 993 Turbo with a compromised history. Needs to be cheap IMHO.

true - & looking at the classifieds, hendon way have a speed yellow one up at 129k - so maybe my £120k guess is way toppy...

what do you guys think of the paint?

Looks to have sold for £70k (£74,200 inc fees) back in November.

Lovely wood biggrin, swapped out for black, and back in again.

very good!

loss of the wood is good - but is three months a 'flipper' or someone who has scratched the itch & wants out...

bit odd, no?

It was for sale with the guys at Ashgood, before it went on CC recently so worth calling them for the info.
