It’s Um… Er Convertible Season, Low Mileage 1993 Porsche 968 Cab For Sale

One of the things that I am noticing the older I get is that I am, well, cheap.  It’s not that I don’t appreciate quality, I do to no end.  It is I will through ungodly amounts of trouble to save a buck.  If that means buying something off season on the cheap so be it.

Case in point, soft top values are squishy now.  This happens every year, the holidays have come and gone and warmer weather is a bit off.  I purchased a ’02 Audi TT Quattro today, which makes no sense as I am at least 90 days from something that resembles top down weather.  But I purchased it for 20% less than I would in the middle of summer.

Yep, I am cheap!  Here is another great car to spend your summer with.

When I first saw this car I was certain it was a tip which is a deal killer but was pleasantly surprised to see it is a manual.  There is some good, low miles, records, and a newer top.  Some bad including some road rash, it’s due for belts and a water pump, and it may need new tires.  Nothing tragic there but adjust your pricing accordingly.

Bidding currently sits at nearly $10k with the reserve not met.  I would be comfortable going up to $12.5k on this car given the work it may need upon arrival.  Either way it is a beautiful car and deserves to go to a good home.
