If memory serves, that car was sold for under $15k a couple years back as a non-running "garage" find.

You can have the world’s best preserved 77 targa for a bargain basement price of $110k. No doubt to original owner was paid $20k and the rest is flipper $$$...

Saw that and thought much the same.

Is it just me, or would others have a higher miles car that has been used, rather than one left to sit? It seems that more seems to go wrong with cars that are left, than those which are used reasonably frequently.

That’s a car for a preservation class concours guy. It will need a lot if you want to start driving it as Ferry intended.

Good point. I hadn't thought of that.
I guess because it's not something I would ever consider doing.

Seems a bit of a waste, but then people seeing me spend hours working on rusty parts of a 40+ year old car, that I will have more into than a new Toyota Thingie, think I'm pretty mad too...

No offense to the lister of the car here on Pelican but.... Really? $200k. Sure its a nicer car with some high dollar stuff, probably done well, but for $200k you could buy a clean straight car and build that car for a whole lot less.

Looks nicely done. But third post and i’ve never heard of them. Not that I am some big shot no-it-all or something. Quite the opposite. But wouldn’t you want some credibility on a board before posting something like this? Maybe it’s just me. But that s a lot to ask for on a pretty straightforward build.

May be I’m missing something.

The issue is, at least in my opinion.... anyone who spends some time on this board and is involved with these cars would know you could reproduce that car for less than $200k even paying someone else to do all the work. Then you would have your own version exactly as you want it and save a ton.

Straight SC or Carrera coupe $35k, paint and body $15K, interior $10K, 3.6 rebuilt 915 rebuilt with extras $35k. Toss in another $25k for everything else. That's $120k so even if I am low in my prices you have $80k of room to work with.

$200k .... not for that car, not by a long shot if you asked me. My thought is its a lot closer to $100k then $200k, maybe even sub $100k

The credibility comes with who owns and who built the cars they are representing. The provenance on tbe cars checks out. The prices are silly high, but there is nothing questionable about their listimgs. Post count and join date mean nothing on this one.

That car is laughable at $80k, let alone their absurd ask. The math is too easy, especially if starting with a clean E class car.

Ans that's not a Rothsport motor. Looking back at the list they were very cute with the language. Rothsport may have touched it, but they didn't build it. Anyone paying more than $40k is going to figure that out.

'Very clean' and camera shy if you ask me
You would have to be very grave (or stupid) to spend the money on those details alone!

Saw this at a Copart auction and was interested in the drivetrain, reasonably close so I went and looked. Front structure doesn't look too bad at first, but it is pushed to the side, and twisted up. Wrinkle in the wiper panel in front of the windshield, not an easy fix. It sold for $37250, so close to $39k with fees and shipping. 993's are not getting any cheaper. Estimate was over $30k to fix. Good example of something that looks like an easy fixer in photos but could turn into a nightmare. Could be a really expensive 911 with a salvage title.

Only a solid $50k+ overpriced. Laughable.

Could you imagine the amount of guys who would be rolling the streets with laughter if it were pre-2012? This would be absolutely unheard of.

Yeah, insurance companies don't care what you insure your aircooled for because they will get probably 60-70% of their money back on an auction sale now-a-days.

$40K for this bent-up Cab? I don't see the upside at all. What would a well-used 993 cab sell for, $48K?

WOW! I thought it was an overpriced turbo. That's just an SC. It's priced at double it's value IMO

For sure. That car is slightly nicer than the one I picked up for 26k. A 74 in CA gets a pre-emissions bump. But not that much.
