Is it really risky business to buy a one-off vehicle as an investment? With the very Green BidenMobile® now on eBay and only 8-days left, the biddings have begun and there will be two winners. Cancer research and one lucky owner!
According to Motor Authority, the 1979 Porsche 928 used during filming of “Risky Business” went under the hammer on Saturday at Barrett-Jackson's inaugural auction in Houston, Texas. After some furious bidding, the car sold for $1.98 million, making it the most expensive car of the sale.
A quick search of the classifieds shows plenty of 928s for sale starting from about $20,000. Given this car’s history, it's no surprise it sold for much more. It’s not just a Porsche 928, after all; it’s the Porsche 928.
And the BidenMobile® is the only 1967 Corvette of its kind in the world. Click here to see the auction action, bidding and comments or use this link https://www.ebay.com/itm/154617512792
Other highlights of Barrett-Jackson's Houston sale included a 2019 Ford GT that sold for almost $1.2 million, as well as a 1966 Ford Shelby GT350 upgraded to Competition spec and raced by Stirling Moss in vintage events during the 1990s. It went for $495,000.
The proceeds will cover the expense of the Bidenmobile® project and the Cancer research I have been donating to since my Mother's death and my own near-death experience with terminal Cancer in 1995.
