Those have been GOLD for the last 10 years.

Now they're unobtainium.
he's talking aboot excursions
Yes and no. 2-3 years ago you could have bought a similar car to mine for like $80k. I even know guys that bought one for closer to $50k-$60k. Now we are starting to see $200k for really low mile, well sorted versions.
you replied to him, bring your car into it somehow
hes talkin aboot excursions, dummy
i set you straight
Um, I was the one talking about excursions, dummy!

And the point I was trying to make, there are some old ball cars selling for some crazy dollars. Who would think a 2003 Ford Excursion would be worth $100,000 even with low miles?
you had a stroke
Pic of your excursion
if you were talking aboot excursions youd have a pic of the one you owned, as you said MINE
I can't tell if you're confused or if I'm confused or we're both confused.
oh im confused alright

SOLD FOR $1,902,000 ON 1/5/22

This 2005 Porsche Carrera GT is one of 1,270 examples built during a four-year production run and was originally delivered to Stevinson Imports of Littleton, Colorado. It later spent time in Arizona before it was acquired by the current owner in 2021. The car is finished in Guards Red over black leather upholstery, and power comes from a 5.7-liter V10 mated to a six-speed manual transaxle with a limited-slip differential. Features include staggered-width forged magnesium wheels, a ceramic-composite clutch and brake rotors, an electronically actuated rear spoiler, and removable roof panels. A June 2021 service reportedly included the installation of new tires, a brake fluid flush, and an oil change. This Type 980 has under 800 miles and is now offered in Scottsdale, Arizona, by the seller on behalf of the current owner with factory books, a fitted luggage set, keys, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Montana title.

780-Mile 2005 Porsche Carrera GT


The Carrera GT concept car first appeared at the 2000 Paris Motor Show as an offshoot of the late-1990s LMP2000 development prototype that never came to fruition. The model entered production in 2003 with construction incorporating a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic monocoque and subframe built by ATR Group in Italy.

Nothing like the skyrocketing value of shitty cars you overlooked in your youth, to make you suddenly feel old. Pretty sure I considered a used one while shopping for my second car. I don't think the price was more than 8k

I love you but most of what you posted is incorrect. Especially the bits about workload and bringing in auditors.

For what it’s worth, Hemmings was in talks to purchase BaT several years ago and it fell apart at the last minute.

Hearst Media did buy majority ownership of BaT last year.
I would count you in the group of people who would know better than me.

I am just parroting what I read and what has caused a multi thousand word discussion.
The two guys giving the details are also people I would rely on to have knowledge. Purportedly, one of them has been part of a group of suitors for the company.

Just a post of stuff I read. Either way BAT is a compelling story right now and I would guess that a lot will change there this year.

The market for cars like this now is absurd. I was looking at 996 Turbos a couple years back and would routinely find good drivers cars in the high 30's/low 40's. Now? Ooooooof.

Just like the s2000. Shitboxes that were 10k a few years back are now pulling almost $20k and morons keep buying shitty cars.

I could see a pristine E30 M3 going for this much, but a 944 just doesn’t make sense.

why

someone bought it $35,500 2/2/21
traded it in 6/2021
looks like it sat on a Honda lot for 6 months before someone listed on BAT and sold it during this crazy market where almost every car appreciated

It was the same crazy used car market 11 months ago - the appreciation makes absolutely no sense

944/951 prices have increased a bit in the past year or so, but this one is just silly.
Of course shit like this has lead to every slob with a ratty automatic car with a misfire listing their shit for about 6x what it's actually worth
