Whenever an automaker builds a very limited number of one of its highly desirable cars, there are bound to be some customers left behind. That’s the whole point. This is common practice with the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Porsche. It was the latter in particular that witnessed insanely high demand for the 911R, as its value soared to over $1 million at one point. Porsche cooled the market down by launching the 911 GT3 Touring Pack.
And then there’s the 2018 911 GT2 RS, limited to just 1,000 examples. Not every rich Porsche collector managed to get on the list, forcing them to pay a premium to someone willing to sell their beloved ultimate street-legal, track-focused 911.
But there could be another way to convince an owner to sell. It’s called trading. A guy from Daytona Beach, Florida has placed an ad on Craigslist with an offer some GT2 RS owner may not be able to refuse: the car for a private island. Straight up. The island also happens to be for sale for $568,900, or best offer.
For the record, the 911 GT2 RS had a starting price of $294,250. A related real estate ad describes this island as a "3-acre paradise of high and dry riverfront land on Halifax. It located 1.2 miles south of Dunlawton Bridge in Port Orange, Florida. Enjoy all of the fresh fishing and stunning views."
There doesn’t appear to be a house or any other structure there, leaving that task up to the next owner. The island’s owner makes no mention of what options he or she wants on the 911 GT2 RS, but this is definitely a case of beggars can’t be choosers (although the optional $31,000 Weissach Package would surely be welcomed). This also isn't the first time we've seen a private island owner make an offer like this. Back in 2013, someone wanted to trade their island for a Ferrari Enzo.
So do you all think this is a fair trade? A private island in Florida for a 700 hp 2018 911 GT2 RS? That’s honestly kind of a tough one.
