I’m not sure if anyone else has written about this yet. I would be surprised if that was the case. This car is remarkable.
Some could say that this is the cheapest vintage Porsche 911T you would find on ebay, the asking price is a mere forty grand. It’s certainly well-preserved, ensconced in this cocoon of terrifying bodywork.
The vintage Porsche 911 collector with a facility in the middle of nowhere, maybe an unlit garage in a less-populated area of Nevada, could probably enjoy driving this car, at night, during a new moon. Maybe those headlights are actually decently functional.
There are a couple not-so-terrible aspects to the design. The headlights behind the glass in the lowered location do look a touch competition-ish, so there’s that. The rest, with those strakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Somebody agreed to cut the body for a cabriolet conversion. To underline what looks like obvious heresy to the modern observer, the seller mentions the 2.2 liter flat-six motor...
This poor fucking car.
The seller does have 100% feedback for what that’s worth. Nonetheless, there’s less than seven hours left on the auction, and, apparently zero bids have been made.

The seller wrote, “...it is a stunner, neck breaker, cannot take this car anywhere without being mobbed by car lovers and Porsche enthusists,” but he didn’t say anything about torches, pitchforks, etc.
