Why are the 4 air cleaner screw covers missing?

LOL, those hoses still have the manufacturing mold release power on them. You pay extra for that.

I would most certainly pay $40k for it...

LOL.

I notice that some of the carbon fiber interior around the vents is yellowing; other carbon fiber parts are still black and gray. Yellowing was a major issue with the CGT about that same time period.

Wow, $187k sticker price in 2002 and that only included partial leather seats.

Still, I think this one will go for $175k, but I could be wrong. I like the custom car cover; not $175k of like but I do like it.

Check out the leak https://bringatrailer.com/wp-content...98764da89.jpeg


Seriously, is that the stuff they spray on the underside before getting on the boat?

Yup, that is why I said that. But this is lumpy compared to just discoloration.

This will be interesting to follow; from a final price standpoint.

It won't bring top dollar. The Porsche crest is not aligned with the valve stem on any of the wheels, and the front lip is boogered up...

LOL.

I don't know. The bid is already up to $40k with 7 days remaining. Usually these TT's have not hit that figure until the last couple days. They may be overlooking the wheel crest alignment.

Especially since they can be properly aligned by the new owner at no monetary cost..
