We all know older air-cooled Porsche 911 prices have shot up to ridiculous levels in the last few years, but there's one last place you can still get them for obscenely cheap: a GSA auction. Friend of the site and Opponaut CleverUsername found a 1983 911 Turbo currently at just $16,600. Someone snatch this thing up now!
UPDATE 1/22/15 2:41PM EST: Sold for $56,750.
If you're the buyer, let me know in the comments so we can follow up on the car. We'd love to know more details on the car and where it will end up.
UPDATE 1/22/2015 8:33AM EST: With 4 hours left, the bidding is at $30,500USD.
This week in GSA Auction Watch: a 1983 Porsche 930 Turbo. Our friends over at the US Marshals Service seem to have happened upon a hookers-and-blow-era 911 and it's up for sale. Members Only jacket and Thriller tape not included.
I would entirely support new legislation or policy that would require government sales to report the story behind whatever it is that they are selling. If so, we'd have an idea what the previous owner of this beast did to deserve (or not) the forfeiture of his car. The car is in Puerto Rico, so you know there's a good story.
It's not in the best cosmetic shape, but the clock shows a little over 44K .
The rest of the coupe has a protective layer of dust.
The interior, which is oh, so burghundy, needs a visit from Larry Kosilla, but it's all there.
The bidding at the time of this posting is a non-reserve-meeting $16,600 with 14 days left on the auction. Post your guesses below for the final selling price.
