Imagine driving Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett’s Porsche 911 C4 jamming to Metallica on the stereo he paid $20,000 for back in 1990. Kirk’s car stereo was featured in one of the Car and Driver type magazines (I’ve not been able to track down the exact details and Kirk just doesn’t remember.) This collectors dream is a direct descendent of the awe inspiring 959 SUPER CAR……. At least that is what the beginning paragraph of the ebay ad says.
With a starting bid of $35,000 and a buy it now price just shy of $40k, I’m not sure that the Metallica provenance will justify the Turbo price premium (you could easily buy an ’89 930 Turbo in that price range, not to mention a decent 993 or mid mileage 996) but you never know?? The car is listed as being sold for Tony Smith (Metallica’s former tour manager). There is some documentation with the car and that $20k spent on the stereo in 1990 could easily still be worth $20 or $30 in today’s market. You’ll have to decide for yourself.
