While I appreciate the "special" nature of this car, one really needs to assess what premium the pre-production status adds to the value of an early turbo. The seller obviously feels it adds about $150,000 (to be generous to it's base value).

Now maybe in pristine condition at some future date you could expect a good chunk of that to be realized but 930 prices in general would need to rise from their current market values and be a lot better appreciated than they are today. At least that's my take.....

It does have me thinking though that tracking down an early 991 test mule might heap big rewards in 35 years....Funny how it works, really. I mean when the turbo first came out who would want a pre-production, magazine test car that was likely thoroughly thrashed verses a new production model? Yet somewhere down the road the pendulum swings back the other way....
