Hmm, that looks legit and the price looks good too. No doubt some catch up maintenance is due, so budget $5K or $6K or so and then have a well sorted first year "S". I notice they painted the rear spoiler. That's weird, but it works.

I like these 2:
https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1991- ... -928-gt-8/ - pinnacle 928, and best color too.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1966-shelby-gt350-10/ - pinnacle Mustang.

Okay, here's one - a Shelby GT - I had this same car (mine was an auto, o/w identical). I loved it and missed it immediately upon selling. Like 928's, I'm a sucker for S197 version Mustangs. I have had 5. Truly exceptional cars for the money. I am very tempted on this one and on the Bullet also up for auction right now on the site.

When I lived in Germany it seems this was every GIs dream car for those who didn't want the usual German performance car:

But this is the one I really want to bid on:

Viggens and B5 S4's have always been my unicorns....every time I go to buy one things go super sideways or the sale ends up beyond sketchy. One of the Viggens had a branded title even tho it was never in an accident that I could find. The original owner said Mass RMV screwed up and totalled his car for an accident when it was not even on the road...Knowing the Mass RMV this does not surprise me.

Test drive of a Stage III Awe S4 ended with a broken axle and a turbo return line wrapped around it..... :mad:

I had two Viggen purchases fail. The seller backed out of the first deal because he decided to keep the car. The second one, the seller wouldn't respond to my e-mails. I still haven't completed a purchase on one.

My cousin had an '82 SC exactly like that. Second 911 I ever drove and first one I redlined. :evilgrin: A perfect car and the last 911 that really looked good in Guards Red IMHO.

^^No. Colorado car...hmmm. It's gorgeous for sure!^^....Although if I were to do a 993 again, it would be a 95', but obviously no S option.

Um yeah, but the car it goes into is worth well over $1M. My buddy has a 57 Carrera GS/GT Speedster with that engine in it. One of 77 of that flavor.

RNM at $220K. I am thinking reserve was a cool quarter mil.

At that price the guy shooting the pictures might get some new shoes out of the deal.

2.5 mil for a motor seems excessive. I get Porsche rare is Porsche rare and the technology for the circa of engine is worth something....but

I have a friend selling a 2001 S4 with K04 turbos and chipped with cat back exhaust if you’re interested. It’s a great car!

Oh man that would be great and terrible at the same time. Truck purchase just took me out of the game for a little while.

yeah that minerva was gorgeous. A beautiful 86.5 meteor metallic gray just sold today for crazy money. It was a low miles shark. There is a rather pink (and not desirable to me) casis red GTS that just went up today.
