1981 Porsche 928 Strosek Widebody, Low mileage 928, & Audi 200 Trans Am

I see a good deal of 928s for sale, there are two reasons for this. One, Porsche made them for nearly two decades and two, because I look for Audi S4s so every time I search for S4 I come across Audis and Porsches. Because there are so many in the market picking one up is not very hard. $10k will get you a plenty nice one. Just remember that, while they looked fairly similar over that long run, the options changed over the years. Flavors of engines included 4.5, 4.7, 5.0, and 5.4, liter V8s.
Transmissions could be had in 3 and 4 speed auto or 5 speed manual.

A early 80s twenty thousand dollar 928 would normally have even fewer miles on it then the 46,000 on this machine. This one has reason to be an exception. It appears to have a super clean body kit, custom interior work, and performance engine tuning including cams and headers. Not to mention the seller says he’ll throw in $15,000 worth of extra goodies like a GPS nav, to tune up, detailing and more. Seems reasonable to me.

If 46,000 miles is a bit too high for you why not make an offer on this 1,484 mile 1978. Offered at $35,000 (reserve not met), this can only be for a collector. Great interior and even has the original window sticker. Knowing that every time you drove the car you’d be decreasing its value is tough. Just keeping the car garage bound when this 911 beater should be out roaming the back country is sad. As the slogan, picked up from another car club, goes, Garages Kill. Letting a car sit is not good for it and once parts start to deteriorate and have to be replaced you’ve lost the originality and not been able to enjoy driving the car, lose-lose. On the other hand it is nice to be able to show such an original vehicle.

1989 Audi Quattro 200 Trans-Am ex Hurley Haywood

Finally just to mix it up a bit this is the car that Hurley Hawyood used during the run to the Trans-Am Championship. The early Audi Quattro racers were pretty much bad ass in every form of racing they entered, hill climb, rally, trans am, etc. This one comes several years after the monster 600 horse power Group B Quattro S1, but clearly shares the blood lines and technology. The unique turbo charged inline 5 in this vehicle likely isn’t as powerful as the Group B car, but should certainly be bumping out over 500 ponies at full boost. The price is on request, probably somewhere north of a few dozen well used A4s. This would make a great SVRA or SCCA entry. For now it sits as a show piece at a casino.

I wasn’t able to confirm this from the dealer, but someone tells me this car may have just sold after being for sale for over a year at $450,000.
