Have I got that right T? Floor


of the choice standard colour Guards Red CS's 996.2 GT3's are fewer in number than Speed Yellow, thus there is a slight premium

although the SY cars are known to be quicker[/quote]

If i was to buy all of the yellow ones and burn them all, could i influence the market price for yellows Question

tasty looking yellow gen2 @ Targa Florio but the front looks bent: http://www.targafloriocars.com/used-car-porsche-996-gt3-manual-1847

i'd love a black 996 gen 2 GT3 one day, think they look great in this colour with the aggressive updated lights etc

clearly the market is already having as a dip as the dealer has slashed off £10k off the price to now a mere £74,995, but still £00's overpriced


end of month special with another £5k off

at this rate it might get to a realistic price by xmas

Reading the advert in isolation you'd assume that the seller was being honest and open in their description.

Shame, it's a gorgeous looking car.

LOL - those are some impressive 'weasily words'.
I negotiate/manage contracts for a living, so have seen some very carefully crafted prose in my time.....I should imagine that they took some serious work to get the tone just right, whilst (in the sellers eyes) remaining factual.

"FRONT BUMPER, REAR WING AND REAR BUMPER HAVE BEEN SPRAYED BY AUTHORISED BODYSHOP A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO (COSTING £1500)"

This can't be correct though?

The ad also still identifies the black carbon wing which has now been changed to OEM.

What a complete crook.

The psychology of this statement is f****** hilarious.

ADVERT ENTIRELY IN CAPITAL LETTERS IS ALWAYS A MAJOR CONCERN!

Sorry, I got stuck on caps lock after reading that. What I meant to say was, an advert that is entirely in capital letters is always a major concern.

What a fascinating read! I guess that they only have to snag one person with the money and not much Porsche experience.
