    I will own one of these before I die. That is one stunningly beautiful Porsche, the wheels are beautiful too.

  2. Oh, I wish I still had mine! I don’t know that I would’ve ever sold it, but the value of Porsche Turbos have gone up in value many times over. Especially if it’s in great condition and is all original. This is definitely one car that you will get your money’s worth.
