Here is David Beckham’s 2008 Porsche Turbo Cab for sale on ebay.. If you’re looking for his 993 read below.
If the question was ever in doubt, the answer is evident in the ongoing sale of David Beckham’s first Porsche, a 1997 993 Carrera S currently listed on eBay. At the moment there are 3 bids with the highest offering £50,200.00 (that’s $75,500 US dollars at today’s exchange rate). That’s a huge premium over any similarly equipped Porsche without the celebrity provenance. To put things in perspective, a similarly equipped car in the US (that never had Posh grace the leather) will sell retail between $45k and $48k says Michael Willhoit of Willhoit Enterprises (a sponsor of this site and where I purchased my latest 993) and between $40k to $45k in a private sale. According to Philip Raby (noted Porsche expert and editor of Total911 Magazine) he would expect a non-celebrity owned Porsche like this to sell in in the £30 to £35k range. Phil did note that its location in Belfast (as it’s not on the UK mainland) and undesirable interior color would normally further hinder pricing. Right now, there’s no telling how high this auction could go as at the time of publishing there are still four full days remaining.
Earlier this year, Jerry Seinfeld’s 1997 993 Turbo S sold for close to $225,000. That price represented close to a $75,000 premium over non-celebrity owned cars. However, Seinfeld’s Turbo S had some other unique factors that helped explain away some, but not all, of the premium. Today, Seinfeld’s car is said to be for sale again (and has shown up on eBay a number of times) at a greatly reduced price. A sign of the economic times? Or, is Jerry’s star just not as bright as David’s?
Did I mention that Beckham’s car is a tiptronic? For $75,000 or more? Well, at least it has sport seats. With the prices people have been asking for those lately, maybe that can justify the price. Come to think of it, I wonder if I could get Dave (or better yet Posh) to pose with my car and sell it for 100% more than it’s worth??? hmmm….
