ebay Porsche Auction of the Day: 1989 Porsche 953 Rothmans Rally Tribute

Another fantastic ebay auction

You asked for it.  You got it.  You wanted an all-wheel-drive Rothmans Rally Car and here it is.


“Ferris Buellers Day Off” Movie House & a Rothmans Porsche 911 Rally Tribute Car by jeremycliff, on Flickr

There’s some serious lust for Porsches–especially those with a more esoteric flare. Its a clone/tribute of the Rothmans Porsche 953 rally cars that ran around Africa in the early eighties. Very nicely put together and going for a fraction of the cost of a real deal version.

If you remember July of 2010 when the 2-wheel-drive 1980 Rothmans Rally Car sold to GoPro for upwards of $70,000 on eBay.   Although that car was stunning in everyway the owner knew he needed something more.  He searched the country high and low for the perfect donor and finally found an accident free, perfectly maintained, weekend driver, pilot owned, all original with every factory option 1989 1/2 Porsche 964 C4.

This is how the car started… a gorgeous, perfectly maintained 1989 Porsche 964 Carrera 4

Short description from the eBay ad…
Meet AWD Paris…
She is an absolutely stunning freshly completed Porsche 911 Paris, Alger, Dakar Winning 953 Off Road Rally Tribute Car that has been painstakingly built over last year. She was built as a tribute to the winning Porsche 953 raced from Paris to Dakar in 1984 Piloted by Rene Metge and Dominique Lemoyne. Paris originally started life as a 1989 1/2 Porsche 964 Carrera 4 in PERFECT condition and is perfectly street legal and plated and titled in Illinois.

There is only three (3) of these factory cars, two (2) owned by Porsche and one in private hands.  Although this is a reproduction, most observers will swear this is the real deal…


Porsche 911 Paris/Dakar Rally Tribute by jeremycliff, on Flickr

Over the last couple months Jeremy Cliff has been shooting and prepping photos and video of “Paris”, this Rothmans Porsche 911 Tribute Car, the time has finally come to put the car up for sale and release the photos. Jeremy wanted to do something very different and have a unique location wise…. I’m sure most of you will recognize it, but for those that do not the “house” location is actually the house that was used in the famous 1986 movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. What better spot to shoot a historic vehicle then in a historic location?

The car is currently for sale on eBay and can be found here:
