I posted this up in the e90 threads, thought I would share it here too since its such a special auction lol.
In the most vague yet informative ebay auction, this Porsche 911-T (Prototype) is selling for 16 million!!!!!
The auction states:
To the local and general reader
To the Antiquary and to the Uninitiated
To the inquisitive admires of fine Arts we hope to prove this acceptable.
Simple and unimportant as the subject may first appear,it will be found,upon a nearer view,well worth the attention of philosophical and Historic inquirers.
A PICTURE is Worth a Thousand Words

Anyone know why this person would think its worth 16million?? I mean one of the most valuable Porsche sold was a Porsche 917 that sold for 3.9 million...and it was in stellar condition.
Any idea what the importance of the microfiche is? Seller has several copies of it (looks like a paper with swirls in it).
