hahaha I saw this the other day and had a good laugh. I think this seller is on drugs because saying that "it will require $3000-5000 to fix and have it finished" from the condition it's in is a pipe dream in my opinion... Might have better luck trying to sell it as an Ariel Atom

you can get a car complete for that price..
You would still have to throw a minimum of 5K at it to make it right

Actually the seller is spot on = that is if you're building a Boxster dune buggy.

Wasn't this the limited edition 2005 model? I think Porsche only made one, so no wonder it is priced like that. Definitely a one of a kind and collector car!

And yet the ad description details an accident with a ditch, the ad + this thread makes me "lol"
