When I saw this car a few months ago I did not know that it had such a special history. Of course all Porsche 904 Carrera GTSs are special.

Ferdinand A. Porsche who died in April of this year was responsible for the styling of this car, one of the most beautiful Porsches ever. He also styled the Porsche 911 one of the most successful and loved sports cars in history.

I have written about another Porsche 904 GTS For Sale.

I remember not so long ago when a $1 million Porsche was a really big deal, now it seems that $2 million is normal especially for a Porsche such as this one.
