It’s no George Barris custom Lincoln Futura concept car from the original TV Batman, but here is your opportunity to own a real-deal Porsche Batmobile. Sort of.
As you can see from the Craigslist listing, the actor who played Batman, Mr. Adam West, is selling his 2007 Porsche Cayman with reasonably low miles, for a relatively decent price. It’s slightly over the standard market price for an early Cayman, but you’ll be hard pressed to find one in such good condition and with so few miles. The description of the car claims it to be a “piece of history”, which I’m not sure I agree with, but it would make for an interesting conversation starter at your next PCA meeting.
From the listing, which is inexplicably written in all capital letters:
HERE YOU GO, 2 ICONIC FIGURES IN THE WORLD “ADAM WEST/THE CLASSIC BATMAN AND PORSCHE”. YES YOU ARE RIGHT, THIS IS ADAM WEST’S PORSCHE CAYMAN. IT ONLY HAS 16060 MILES, LOVING CARED FOR, ALWAYS MAINTAINED AND THE CAR WAS ONLY DRIVEN 3,000 SINCE 2012. SO IF YOU ARE A ADAM WEST FAN AND A PORSCHE FAN YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH OWNING A PIECE OF HISTORY ON THESE TWO. THE INTERIOR IS LIKE NEW AND IT HAS A CLEAN CARFAX ……..SO ALL YOU BAT FANS HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THIS MODERN DAY BATMOBILE. THIS HAS THE 2.7L H6 MPI ENGINE, WHICH MEANS YOU CAN CHASE DOWN CRIMINALS FASTER THAN ADAM DID AS BATMAN WITH THE BAT MOBILE. THERE IS ALSO 1 PICTURE OF ADAM WEST THAT WILL GO WITH THE CAR …YOU CAN FIND CAR AT
McCORMICK’S PALM SPRINGS COLLECTOR CAR AUCTIONS; 244 N. INDIAN CANYON DRIVE, PALM SPRINGS, CA 92262….CALL AND ASK FOR DAVID
PRICE IS $38,000 OR BEST OFFER YES I SAID BEST OFFER
So what do you say, is $38,000 a fair price for a properly cared-for, low-mileage, manual transmission Cayman with an interesting owner history? Mr. West seems like one of the most interesting people to talk to, so maybe you could work a dinner invitation into the purchase negotiations. If you get this car and don’t install a fake rock in front of your garage to hide the entrance, then maybe you’re living life wrong.
