A non-Porsche owner guy over on Garage Journal forum bought a tool kit from someone for something like $50 or so. Seller didn't know what he had, neither did the buyer - but I think the buyer figured it had to be worth more than he paid. He posted pics - got some tips that it looked Porsche related - and he put it on ebay. He had ebay msgs from folks offering thousands - he just told them all to place a bid. I think it sold in the upper $3k range - almost $4k.

Could be British but then I think you would have to call it a "multi-spanner" and price it in shillings or pounds. If it was a true oem wrench "Drop Forged Steel" would read something like:
"Tropfen geschmiedeter Stahl"

Because of this thread I sniffed on Ebay for related "stuff". Yes the tool kits are in the many thousands of dollars.

I suspect if the adjustable wrench is valid, a couple/few hundred bucks. I did see single pairs of pliers in the $100 range for subject period.

Who could'a, would'a, should'a thunk it. I had tool kits and various Porsche tools from different year cars. It was a matter of pride for me to always include a proper tool kit in the trunk of a car that I sold.

Sigh. In 1991, a co-worker said, "Man, this Cisco stock I have is going crazy"

I could have bought in then but who the hell knew.

Wonder what the big ticket is today? The first Tesla cars?
