Auction House
Chassis no. WP0JB0924JS861643. Cassis Red Metallic over burgundy leather. 4957/316hp, 5-speed, Toyo tires on the rear, Yokohamas up front, sunroof, tinted glass, power seats, Porsche Design touchscreen Bluetooth stereo.

Evaluation: From the Tyler Hoover (Hoovies Garage on YouTube) collection. Timing belt, water pump, and rear transaxle mounts done last year. Good paint with a handful of chips on the nose and hood, plus a few small chips in the windshield. The sunroof isn’t shut all the way. Very clean interior. A well cared for 928, represented with nearly $18,000 in service done in 2017.

Bottom Line: Last year at this sale Barrett-Jackson sold the 928 from Risky Business for a record $2M. Even the most famous YouTubers aren’t Tom Cruise, though, and this car just sold on its condition/equipment rather than its ownership. This is a fair result, all things considered. That service from five years ago made a up a huge portion of the 928”s overall value, but that is the way of things with old semi-exotic cars like this.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
