Browsing around the net over the weekend, I was amazed at the number of people who have chosen to invest in their existing used car vs buying something brand new, and even more amazed at some of the values out there. In the Porsche world, clone cars have been all the rage for quite some time. If you’re an avid reader of the blog, you know that we routinely post rate versions of great Porsche’s. There are so many factory gems Porsche has done over the years it’s sometimes hard to remember them all. But since the platforms all start out as whatever the current iteration of the 911 was at the time, it can represent a great chance for an enthusiast to build their own vs trying to seek out an elusive, original version. There are some awesome second hand cars for sale out there, especially for performance and luxury enthusiasts. Now is a great time to take advantage the depreciation that has hit the market and score a bargain.
One that caught my eye was this 993 RS clone. It appears to have been done to a higher standard, using lots of factory original Porsche parts. Since the work has been done and the car already depreciated, it could be a good value for someone who wants to buy a completed project, vs embarking on their own.
