Built from a real six with lots of special attention and parts.
Cost $370k to build....makes me feel a lot better about the cost of my build. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif)
2.8 liter 311hp engine
You get the drift...

Would be fun to take this one around block.
I'd like to experience the acceleration this car supposedly is capable of.

Seems a bit steep

I just think cars and collection's like this are kinda a waste in a
Way being too expensive to really drive and use

They are amazing to look at but why would you lock a

It's a beautiful car, but price and value are relative things. Personally, I think that once you get past 100K, the numbers become meaningless.

It doesn't look like $225,000.00 to me.

But, what do I know?

We build $200K+ cars at the shop. Not 2x more fun than a $100K car but the parts really do add up quickly. One of our customers told me today he has 37 cars. Unlike me, even a $200K car is probably a smaller percentage of his net worth than the 2007 used Honda CRV I bought for my son. I do try to drive the shop cars any chance I get. They are made to drive. Trying to get in the 962 but thats a long shot. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

The neat thing is I can do a 914 with a 300+hp 993 motor for a lot less. Won't be the same car but I'll be satisfied.

Worth it or not is in the eye of the buyer. Regardless this is one very cool 914. Got to crawl around it at the last RennSport.....very cool.

Well.........I think it means glee or gloat at someone's misfortune.... I know I spelled it wrong.

Of course I'll defer to you Andy.


So the opposite would be frowning at someone's fortune....


Still a pretty cool car and yea....after six figures it's kind of meaningless.

And about those other cars in the photo, how do they get them stacked 3 levels high on those racks? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/WTF.gif) Can't imaging using a forklift like they do at big marina storage facilities?

Do the fake ones have only 5 cylinders? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif) For $370k, it would need something really really real.

A quarter million. Let me rephrase that...A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS! I'm gob smacked. That an additional $130k has been flushed down the crapper is beyond words. All post tax $ is the icing on the cake. The 666 5th Ave of 914s.

I don't often share threads with my wife. If we liquidated ALL of our savings we could swing it for cash. "Sorry Kevin, wrong color".

I'm just speculating here but a lot of the 'lost" $130K is labor and I bet the shop bills at $125-150/hr. But the owner didn't actually pay his employees what he bills customers. Granted, he might have lost potential profit since his car was getting work done and not a customer. Similar idea with hard part cost. Engine might have cost the owner $35K in parts, $15K in labor but the shop would charge a customer $75K. So the math may be a little fuzzy.

Remember, people pay a quarter million dollars for paint on canvas, shaped pieces of clay and fermented grape juice in a bottle, so if you define the car as art, It might be downright reasonable.

Not 'lost", GONE! More often than a not a lost item can be found, 'where did I put my keys'. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)
