This is true. Mine was never DOT or EPA certified. Anything over 25 years old, they don't care anymore

So Bill, are you saying that slant-noses are too nice to put miles on and one should just buy a 'vette if they actually want to drive?

Hey Kung Fu, all these cars need to be driven and enjoyed, but there are a rare few better left the way they were when new. Like looking at a time capsule there. Absolutely cool and beautiful.

What a great 80s icon! I love the car and understand owning it if I had the money.

One question, ... what is the steering wheel? I really like it over the 930S model. Where can I find one?

well - that may be what some say - but not this guy. This is just one of his 3-5 turbos. One is a fully loaded 997 Turbo S, 993 Turbo S and another 88 slant (sold).

this same gentleman also has a 918 spyder on order along with his son - so that family will have 2 - 918s. So to say that this gentleman wants to say that they own a 911 turbo is far from it. He knows his Porsches and buys some just for the investment potential. Hence the white 930 slant - that this thread was started on

who cares

I say hats off to the guy who can keep a car in near perfect condition, maybe the naysayers are simply jealous? If I had the coin, I would probably do the same.

However, I prefer to use my machines, pound the snot out of em and even park at the supermarket.

Ha! Nice one (and so true)! That poor car might as well have a Briggs & Stratton engine from a riding mower in it just to make it a bit easier to move about the storage and display units.

It's a shame. As Captain Obvious, so much of the perceived value resides with extremely low mileage. The car (and it's a beauty) now has it's own vicious cycle, in which it will continue to change hands and each new owner will worry that every additional mile could reduce it's value. "Oh the humanity, we booked another 100 yards of mileage pushing our investment off of the car transporter...call the accountants...call Hagerty....how much depreciation did we incur..."

Who knows, maybe someone will pony up the coin and rack up some miles without concern for what the future may hold. It won't melt...

It further instills my respect for the guys that take those 935s, 962s, etc., and many of the uber rare F-cars from the "golden era" and torture them on the track...just as they were designed and built for.

The white slant is sold. Stayed in the US - but that is all I know. I think it sold very close to asking also - so great for those who have slants. But I don't think many of them have only 2500 miles on them - lol

Well once the money is made or inherited or stolen or however these come to their fortunes to the level where this sort of car can be bought as an investment there's no skill involved in either identifying or buying these cars - you just hang on till you win the auction or the seller says yes.
From then on in there's even less 'art' to the process of ownership; surely it won't ever be driven - just stored and cleaned, stored and cleaned until it's deemed the right time to maximise the owner's investment and the car will be sold - repeat cycle.
Good luck to them, but I know that if I was lucky enough to have the automobile equivalent of Jennifer Lawrence and the money to keep her, I'd be taking her out every day and treating her right every night!

Oh yeah - I forgot. This gentleman also had the special addition Turbo "spyder" addition. When you order the 918 Spyder you can get a special Turbo S addition with the same production number of you 918. I saw this one - wish I had taken pictures. He sold it about 8 months ago. Again - no miles on it except for delivery.

I was thinking it might be this one. Maybe the second owner put some miles on it and let it go.

NOPE, you're not alone. I can appreciate all of the tech and performance, but just not my thing. Not on my short list (not even on the long list) of things to desire and lust. I get that the auto world continues to move forward and thankfully Porsche moves with it, often leading the way. I'm just in my own world...a vacuum of sorts!

That vacuum will eventually become a vortex once these newer cars begin to age.. and hold-on to your wallet when they get as old as 930s. What are you really going to do with them when you can't get it to run, and nobody knows which module need to be replaced?
- Replace ti'll you get it right? Remember, "no return on electrical items."
- Buy used from one of the dismantlers? Hmm, don't forget.. some of the modules have to be coded once installed.. oh and of course some can't be re-coded to another vehicle.

I'm just say'n..
