'95 993 TIP on eBay - buyer about to overpay....

Porsche Marketplace Discussion - Pelican Parts Technical BBS - forums.pelicanparts.com
Not sure whether this is just good marketing on the part of the seller, or a case of buyer(s) not doing any basic research, but I found it interesting.

Bidding on this car has been odd to say the least - something like 60 bids before it got to even $10K. Some at $3.00 a pop?? Finally, on Monday it got to $29.6K. Which I was waiting for because if anyone took the time to go to the seller's website (Apex Auto - see below), they would have seen that the car could have been bought there for some time with an asking price of $29.5K. They also would have seen the link to the free CarFax showing the car had not one, but two reportable accidents - one that indicated "damage to the front pillar" Amazingly, none of this is mentioned in the eBay listing.

So I wondered if anyone would go higher than the highest dealer advertised price and noted today that it's indeed gone up to $31.8K.

And a quick check back at the Apex site shows that their asking price has mysteriously, and very recently, increased from $29.5K to $35.9K.

Used Porsche 911 Carrera 1995 Porsche 993 / 911 Carrera Coupe Tiptronic at Vertex Auto Serving Miami, FL, IID 15881299

Hope the buyer can find a way to have it inspected before paying, but that's not very easy via eBay.
