Oh boy. Today’s car might be a nice refresher on how not the sell a car. In general, the modifications you make to a car do not appeal to other people when it comes time to sell. If they do, they very rarely add any value. Let me repeat that. They do not appeal or add any value to said car. Unless the modifications fix a problem factory, i.e., an aftermarket charge pipe on a BMW 1M after the OEM one explodes, you are better off selling the car as stock. This only increases as the value of the car goes up. $7,000 Honda Civic with wheels, coilovers, and an intake? Someone on Craigslist might bite. Lime green wheels and accents on a 997.2 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet? Grab a heat gun and start pulling.

I don’t want this to be about the current modifications on this specific car. If you want to powder coat a set of Boxster wheels lime green, go for it. It is your car and your money. The point I am trying to get across is that the kind of person in the market for an 11-year old Porsche for $80,000 probably doesn’t want random lime green accents everywhere and Boxster wheels that don’t fit. Thankfully, you can already see a big piece of vinyl wrap tearing away on the front bumper. So chances are you could maybe even peeling everything off before leaving with the car if you didn’t want to wait until the cover of darkness to drive home. The factory wheels are available, so another giant plus. Crisis averted on this one.
In all seriousness, the 997.2 Turbo is a great car. It is the first 911 Turbo with PDK and as a result, does the 60 mph run in the very low three second range. However, the cabriolets are not seen at the model to buy. They usually sell for significantly less than the coupes and really have a tough time moving. The asking price $82,500, or is it $76,000, is nuts. Sorry to be so blunt, but these struggle to sell in the low $60,000 range. Not sure where the owner is at one this one, but you can make your own judgements.
NEVER EVER buy a car with a wrap.
I’ve seen a few stories online where someone buys a car, and peels off the clearbra/vinyl wrap, only to find that 1) the paint came off with the wrap (seen this on Aston Martin with clear bra), or 2) that the vinyl wrap was covering up some serious paint damage. I would never buy a car with so much wrap, always require the seller to have the wrap removed so you know what the paint really looks like.
I concur with Christian…I would never touch a car with a wrap. You do not know what sins it hides. If the seller is serious about selling this, pull the wrap and put back the stock wheels… then he might have a shot at selling it.
Why do people do these things to their cars? I can’t even begin to fathom who thought that lime green and white with yellow headlights over a brown interior was ever a good idea. My god.
@Ricky Weston …because Florida.
@Ricky Weston …because Florida.
@JC haha! You’re right–florida man strikes again. It’s funny how much better it looks even with just the stock turbo wheels on it in that one picture.
What is going on with the two above comments? Somebody is trying to quote me?
@Ricky – looks like some weird bot spam. Sorry about that!
