Obviously you’ll have to buy two. This one to store and one to drive. So two lottery tickets then.

The same car being sold again in US? Now not a one owner car.... Japanese importer stored for 2yrs.....Japanese owner/collector.......no sale in Monaco.........sold in UK auction..........shipped to USA for new owner?..........but sales info suggesting one owner car again! I guess if you buy it for investment/collection its not 'owned'?

Now twice the price it sold for in London, now $925,000. London price 3yrs ago £450,000

Great photos though .....

He did, now he's trying to get 100% return on investment in 3yrs...... It didn't sell for £1m in Monaco 4yrs ago. Given the decline in markets, especially in last 6 months, it'll unlikely sell for $925k anytime soon is my guess. But who knows. If you want it bad?

Monaco estimate was £1m - https://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1981-porsch ... arrera-gtr

I was wrong, it sold for £495k https://silverstoneauctions.com/events/ ... arrera-gtr

Its been up for sale previously I believe, 2018?, and certainly since end of last year in Houston Porsche Centre.

Like art works hidden away in vaults , this and such cars are sacrificed on the altar of profit and kept off roads where they belong. :dope:
