Coworker sent me this today. I'm assuming he wants a 175K markup?

Ad says it's currently located in Europe. Could be a scammer.

high chance it's a scammer, wouldn't you take the interior picture with the door open. Unless it's not your car and you can't open a locked door.

I donĺt believe Porsche built a US 2017 .2GT3. They are all 2018 cars.

People say $15k ADM is "fair" but then **** their pants if a private seller needs to get out of the car and asks a market price. It's a highly spec'd car with extras and the owner will likely still be in the hole after a negotiation. I see no issue here at all.
