UPDATE: Bidding ended with a high bidder of $217,100. That’s about $130k more than value for a non David Beckham owned Porsche. Read the comments below the story for more info.
Beckham’s 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible is for sale on eBay via Chequered Flag International. When we called the dealer to ask a few questions about the car we were immediately transferred to the Chequered Flag’s owner, Neil Jaffe. Asking Neil what he thought about all the press Beckham’s Porsche is generating he responded, “it’s like having Elvis’ car for sale”. Based on the current bid price (north of $132,000 as we write this) and what we’ve seen for coverage, he just may be right.
A number of web-sites state that “David Beckham is Selling his Porsche on eBay”. That’s not quite the truth. According to Jaffe, his dealership bought the customized Porsche from Beckham last month and is now offering it for sale on ebay. Inquiring about proving provenance, Jaffe sent us a copy of the title which you can see below.
When we asked Neil how high he thought the price might go (the reserve has already been met) he mentioned that he was offered $175,000 to end the auction early and didn’t accept it. While we know Beckham is popular, and his Porsche 993 did well when that was sold on eBay, we think he should have taken the offer and cashed the check quickly!! Hopefully he proves us wrong.
