Wow... just.. wow.

He wants £28k for it as well. A cat D tiptronic with the worlds chavviest wheels and stickers. And it's been messed with in the engine department so christ know how knackered the engine is.

If the original wheel came with it then perhaps it's worth £18k. Any more than that and the new owner is a chump.

Could be a cheap way into 996 Turbo ownership....those additions will reduce its value and are easily remedied.
Sadly I don't have the disposable income to justify it....

Surprised


The list of better things you could do with £7k is endless - I think that's the worst set of wheels I've ever seen on a 996 and normally I'd be the same re. "each to their own" re. wheels.... genuinely hideous - thank god they're including the orginals

There is a reason why it's "one of a kind"

RIMS COSTING £7000...(Invoice of £6000 for wheels to hand)

Seems a trustworthy fella.

Buy it now is £28K? All of a sudden my car is looking like bargain of the century.

To be fair............. he says wheels and tyres £7k so maybe the wheels alone were £6k

To be cruel...……….. nothing sets off a photo for your Porsche for sale better than an old fridge tipped on its side!!!

^^ Grin

That’s nothing, you should see it in summertime when he drags his sofa outside and cracks open a can of Stella.


To be fair, although those wheels don’t suit the car, they’re maybe alright in isolation. Perhaps they’d look better on a Cayenne or Panamera.
As ever, different strokes for different folks.

Hadn't spotted the fridge! Excellent!

Tiptronic isn’t viewed as paddle shift is it?!

And why the S badge? Sills look clean though.

Early title says “10 of a kind”, might be nice to say which of the the ten it is, perhaps there’s a plaque inside Laughing

Paddle shift can be added as they just replace the switches on the steering wheel.
I think they use Merc AMG paddles of some sort.
