Porsche 911 R offered on eBay for $1.25 million(Read article summary)
An eBay listing from Hamburg, Germany, claims that the yet-to-be-built Porsche 911 R in question is set to be delivered in July. As one of just 991 examples, it will certainly be rare.
We know the Porsche market is hot right now, but the $1.25 million asking price for a brand new 911 R that hasn't even been built yet might be a little on the excessive side.
An eBay listing from Hamburg, Germany, claims that the 911 R in question is set to be delivered in July. As one of the 991 examples that Porsche says it will build, it will certainly be rare.
But $1.25 million rare? The seller sure thinks so.
In the listing's text, the seller indicates that he or she is asking for €950,000 since the car is located in Germany, though the "buy it now" price is $1.25 million in U.S. dollars. At current exchange rates, €950,000 works out to about $1.07 million, which is hardly chump change.
The 911 R itself has caused a flurry of excitement among Porsche enthusiasts because it represents somewhat of a "back to basics" shift for a track-oriented 911. It also includes a manual transmission as standard, a feature that Porsche has largely moved away from for its track-oriented models in recent years.
Even if it is a simpler 911, the 911 R will still sticker from more than $185,000 when it arrives in American dealer showrooms this summer.
