It's a somewhat bizarre hoax that's been doing the rounds for at least a couple of years. Maybe started by a Nigerian?

Not sure, but I appreciate this line in there: "I shall indeed interpret all that I can,but I cannot interpret all that I should like."

If he or she is trying to say that slope-nose car pictured is a surviving original 901 prototype, they ought to get it to Howard Freeman in Mississippi (Found 30 Years Later) quick and have him return it to spec.

I guess you could count me among the "philosophical" inquirers (as he put it). What if I blew $16M on a scam? Hmmm... Inquiring minds want to know.

I'll sell my '71T for 1/10 the price, and it's complete and more original.

This has been around for years:
eBay oddity, or "is this guy nuts?"
Rare Porsche for sale?

That's been on there for years. Completely bogus IMHO.

Remember...there is one born every minute...the seller is hoping to find that "one".
Perhaps he can be beaten down to only $10M....LOL

I don't think it is a scam. I think the seller is merely psychotic. Poor guy...

After examining the concept of trying to make sense of something the came from someone who is completely irrational I did the only thing that made sense.

I grabbed a beer and moved on!

As a consolation , here is a genuine rusty prototype story that has played out quite well...and the final chapters remain to be written.
Of course you can skip to the ending but there's no fun in that. At least read the first few pages.

He's trying to say," Send me your money...".

Either that or he's asking for Jerry Seinfeld's phone number.

Hard to tell which.
