    Not mine, and nowt to do with me. Does give me cause to stop and think though... I wonder if the seller would like to do a swap for my 928? Can't afford a 3200GT at the moment, but one of these would do very nicely.

    £7k for a written-off-and-repaired Quattroporte?

    He's having a laugh. You can get a good 2-door for that money, even a fair convertible.

    That got more reaction than I expected!

    OK - it's hardly a pristine example. But as a practical supercar, a good 'un has to be worth considering. 4 doors (great for the smaller members of the family), reasonable size boot (weekly trip to the supermarket), and genuinely very fast. A friend is using Ghibli Cup as his everyday car, commuting in and out of Norwich and using it to travel to London once a week. And an occasional trackday. I'd say he's nuts, but I did the same with my 928GT for nine months.

    I do like the QP. Just maybe not this one.

    So, let me get this straight. You own an example of the only decent car Porsche ever made, and you want to swap it for a dodgy Italian rustbucket?

    If it's the rust that's the major attraction, and you particularly fancy an ugly saloon, I'd be happy to swap your 928 for my Ford Scorpio.............

    I agree the 928 is a great porsche but the money the seller is asking is way too much for that. It is a decent car but you can get a 3200 for not much more andit is a far better looking car.

    I may be biased, but I think the 928 is a great car.



    But I'm a petrolhead. The rate at which I change cars has slowed significantly, but when I see a car I often wonder "what if...?" or "I wonder whats it is like to own one of those?"

    I was exactly the same when I lived at home and could spend all my money on whatever I liked, had more cars than hot dinners.

    good times.

    +1 for the 928 love (i generally loathe porches but would own a 928 - especially that red one - semi ahoy).

    the mid 80's qp is fiat or whoever owned masser trying to compete with bmw and failing spectacularly. avoid them like the plague i toyed with the idea myself a while back and all the same arguments went through my head - do a bit of research and you'll find that the 3200 is a better bet (but not by much given the lottery nature of certain engine seals breaking leaving you with a 14k size hole in your wallet).
    From now on if my comment can be expressed in the form of a tired internet meme or picture.
    So it shall be done.

    Messrs Pumps et al... It is for sale... Or will be, very soon. Needs must, and we (not just the Royal 'we', either!) have plans which mean it has to go.
