In a sea of Porsches, sometimes its hard to stand out. Every 911 is shaped pretty similarly, and while paint-to-sample colors will certainly get attention, it's the truly outrageous stuff that catches our eyes. This rare Strosek-customized 911 will definitely do the trick. It's . You should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
If you've never heard of Strosek Design, here's a quick rundown: It's a German-based company started in 1971 that set out to offer unique takes on Porsche designs, such as the car you see here. The firm isn't nearly as popular as shops like Gemballa or Ruf, but it's designing cars. This is a 1977 911 that's been customized with a Strosek bodykit, featuring a redone rear end and that striking face with two singular tiny round headlights. The car also comes with some sweet five-spoke dished chrome wheels and a custom two-tone interior with a set of sweet tan-colored gauges. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but personally, I'm a fan.
It's unclear what sort of engine is powering this thing (the ad lists it as a 3.2-liter "V6," which is almost assuredly inaccurate), but it does have a five-speed manual. It's with a high bid of $100 and reserve not met with six days remaining. The seller, Desert Autoplex of Mesa, Arizona, with an asking price of $41,995. Considering how little info is given on this car's history in the listing, we'd suggest doing a bit of research before placing a bid. Still, with the way air-cooled Porsche prices are going, 41 grand doesn't seem too unreasonable.
