I found this too funny to pass by. There are many ways to advertise a car, and especially on a site like eBay when you can scroll through hundreds of thumbnails you need something to get readers to pause during that initial view and want to take a second look. With little space available, most sellers say the typical things, sometimes there’s very useful information like “paint to sample” or “special order” (which, of course, may or may not be true), and then there is this one. “Beautiful carpets!” (I’ve ignored the typo) I must say that’s not the typical selling point, but it made me laugh and look more closely at this Venetian Blue Metallic 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe. And, hey, the carpets do look great!

The photography in this ad provides a nice contrast with the Guards Red 3.2 Carrera I featured yesterday. Those pictures accentuated the paint bringing a depth to it that really showed it off. These pictures do the opposite; they make the Venetian Blue paint look a little dull. There isn’t really anything wrong with the pictures, they are honest pictures, but they’re not showing off the car. I imagine in person it will look even better. And that’s not a bad thing to discover when you pull up to see the car you’re considering spending a good chunk of change for!
This 930 looks in good shape. The sport seats are a great addition and they show only minor wear. The rest of the interior looks fantastic. The mileage is very low and other than the radio everything appears to be original. There’s a lot to like here. And, as usual, the price is probably too high. It’s a buyer’s market for 930s so I don’t think this one will see $100K. Nice car though and those carpets hardly look stepped on.
