Sorry for taking so long getting back to you, but I`m in London,England right now and I have been very busy for the last couple of days.Anyway,thank you for your interest in buying the car.I`m from England but,I`m resident in Austria.The car is located in Graz right now and has autrian papers. I want this transaction to be smooth enough as I am caught in the middle of some very important events and have little time at my disposal. I already have tons of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out.The 911 is like new ,in perfect conditions,accident free, no scratches, no special marks, no need for additional repairs what so ever. 12000km onboard, a genuine road runner ready to be yours, but only if you shall understand and won`t make me loose time as it happened to me before. The price is 8000 Euro.THIS IS MY LAST PRICE.I will not negociate the price.Also,I only take in consideration those buyers who are really interesed in buying the car,to be sure that I don`t spend my time with endless disscutions.This way,I shall be assured of the serious intentions.By the way,if you want to see and buy the car I could come to Germany in 10-12 days. Regards,

I have recently tried to sell a boat which was advertised on the internet. I received emails from people sounding exactly like this advertiser. English leaves a lot to be desired, I will give you a cheque for more than the boat is worth(various reasons) and you give me the boat and some change.Immaculate 911 for 8,000euros which planet?

A couple of these appear on ebay every so often. I have seen the same car in one day auctions for stupid prices, the next time it is a different seller but same car same scam.
