Hey everyone. Haven't been using the forum much in recent years, but have definitely been enjoying the car. However, I'm moving from Los Angeles to Europe at the end of the month, which means selling my Speedster. I'm excited about Europe, but not about selling the car. Oh well, can't have the cake and eat it.
With that said, i posted an ad on eBay yesterday for the car. There was a lot of interest in the first 12 hours it was up, including 40 watchers and several bids. However, I woke up this morning to find that Porsche had removed the listing. No info was given, except that it was a violation of the verified rights.
There are several other Speedsters on eBay, some of them even calling the car a "Porsche" in the listing title (a thing I did not do). I even see people listing them in the actual Porsche section on eBay, as opposed to the Replica/Kit Makes section where they belong. These auctions regularly finish without issue. The car has a Subaru 2.5 motor in it, but I can't imagine that having anything to do with the auction being pulled. It also has authentic Porsche Fuchs wheels, but they're real! Actual real wheels made by Porsche, not fake. So I doubt that's an issue.
My question is this. Does anyone have any inside info on why this happens? maybe a specific technicality? I have just over twenty days to sell this car, and eBay is by far my best chance of doing so. I know a lot of guys on here sell Speedsters on eBay regularly. Please forward this topic to them if you can. I'm at a loss here.
I attached a couple pics of the car in case that helps. I have loads more. Any help anyone can provide would be much appreciated. My window to sell this car is small, and this is giving me a huge amount of stress and anxiety that I don't want to be dealing with. Having to sell the rest of my stuff, move out of my house, and all the other things that come with moving to a foreign country for the first time is plenty of stress for me, I assure you.
Thank you in advance, seriously.
