Here are the result for Porsche Coupe Replicas. Hopefully the link works since I was signed in when I copied it. Porsche Coupe Replicas

Otherwise the 2022 results are as follows:

12/16/ 2022 a Stone Grey (maybe) JPS Subs powered coupe sold for $51K, 11/13/2022 a silver Ruby powered coupe sold for $57.9K, and on 09/16/2022 a black JPS Ruby powered coupe sold for $48K. There were some sales in 2021 as well and the prices seem to be similar.

.

And yet another:

VSCurlyWire

This one went for just under $50K a few minutes ago.

A clean, but ordinary curly wire, Kirk era VS (so, older than 2013), with under 5000 miles.

The real bidders placed no bids at all until the last 15 minutes. They knew exactly what they were about.

This wouldn't have brought half that price five years ago.

One wonders how many of these are sitting in garages, undriven, because the buyers soon realized you can't do battle with real world traffic unless you amp them up a bit. Or was it they couldn't take the noise on the freeway? Or the significant other would have none of it?

And yet, they couldn't quite admit defeat and sell — until now, when the market makes them offers they can't refuse.

Not too sure about the fit of those side windows....  :-)

I used them ONCE and that was on the 2nd day after picking up SHPEEDY in Hawaiian Gardens in December of 2008. I drove through a massive rainstorm for the final 200 miles of my trip home and they worked just as well as the convertible top did. Anyone who has a Clown Car knows what that means: Neither are worth a s**t and you're gonna get wet!

Since then (14 years ago), I've NEVER driven SHPEEDY in rain...or even drizzle. That's why those side "windows" look like they're brand new.

Hey Mitch,

For a minute there, I thought you were talking about real Speedsters!

Take it easy, Paul. I think you may have just installed them backwards for those BAT photos.... :-)
