A lot can change in the four years she had the car. Plus don’t trust the seller – get verification that the car is a “numbers matching” vehicle. I’d take a $2,500 Toyota to a mechanic to check out.
A Newport Beach woman who purchased a 1967 Porsche in Monterey for the princely sum of $200,000 alleges that the dealer misrepresented the car, and she’s filed a lawsuit to try to recoup her money. In a complaint filed Jan. 29 in Monterey County Superior Court, Linda Reeves alleges that on Aug. 17, 2015, she purchased a Porsche 911 S from Legendary Motorcars.
The only online reference to the car in question is a listing at an Aug. 13-15, 2015, Monterey auction. The listing describes it as slate gray with a red interior, and an estimated value of $285,000 to $325,000.
However, when Reeves went to sell the sports car last year, she found that the digits did not match, an indication the car was not factory original.
