If you're a fan of large examples of movie memorabilia or short examples of Scientologists, you will be thrilled to learn that the Volo Auto Museum is selling a Porsche 928 originally used in the 1983 Tom Cruise classic Risky Business.
The museum and used-car dealer, located on the western edge of Chicagoland, has featured the gold Porsche that took Cruise to stardom in its TV & Movie Car Collection. The museum's curators are making room for the Chrysler from Seth Rogen's Green Hornet film, so the 928 will be available soon.
The Porsche is in slightly rough shape — museum cars are rarely pampered, movie cars even less so — but Volo points out that this is definitely one of four cars seen onscreen and definitely not the prop that took the swim in Lake Michigan. Still, you may want to invest in a refurbishment before trying to outrun Guido the Killer Pimp again.
Asking price for the 1979 928 is expected to be around $55,000. That's a lot for an early 928 that needs work, but it's hard to put a price on owning a seat where Rebecca De Mornay's beautiful behind once sat.
