VIN # WP0AC299XTS375413

Location: Newport Beach, CA
1 So-Cal Owner from new
No Accidents

Seller is a dealer:

Price: $134,900 US Dollars


This is a highly sought after Porsche by enthusiasts. The 993 Turbo debuted in 1995 and is the last of the air cooled cars. It featured a twin turbocharged engine displacing 3.6 liters and producing 402 hp. It is the first turbo car with all wheel drive. It was as close to the Porsche 959 performance in a production car.   This car has always been a southern california car.  It was purchased at Porsche of Pasadena, California.   The owner has been in the automotive industry and was fortunate enough to acquire this car brand new when the original buyer canceled.  There were only 1900 cars brought to the USA.   There were 1297 cars for 1996 model year and 612 cars for the 1997 model year.   The 1997 cars  are definitely more rare but shouldnt be a deal breaker for a 1 owner 1996 turbo like this.

At this price range , what would you rather buy?    Would this be the ideal car at this price point?

What is your feeling on the price?

1991 Mercedes 560 SEC AMG Mods and large cache of rare parts

Location: Lancaster, California

Odometer:  232,623 Miles

Title: Salvage


This looks very similar to the 560SEC AMG car that was built on the tv show Wheeler Dealers minus the Fender Flares.   This car comes with a garage full of rare parts for this car.   If you are looking for a project car this maybe worth looking into.  I love the AMG 3 piece wheels onthis car.  They are very rare and expensive.   A good set pop up from time to time and I think they sell for $2500+ these days.  I had a set on my Merceddes 300CE a long time ago and they really made the car.  The biggest issue was cracking around the bolts no thanks to all the LA pot holes.

Odometer:  154,930 Miles

6.3 Liter Engine

As of 12/12/16  Ebay Bidding at $50,477 US Dollars / 23 bids/  5 hours left
No Reserve

I passed on a beautiful silver one in Santa Monica 20 years ago.  It was the Long Wheel Base version and seems to long for a practical daily driver.   It sold for $50,000 back then.  These cars are very expensive on maintenance so do your research bofore jumping into one.   There are some shops only devoted to these models so anything can be fixed.   Seller states the exhaust system has leaks and will need to be addressed.   Its looks like a solid driver in a unique color.   The interior is also original to the car.
