What's for sale (Internationally) that's interesting Thread

Recommended Posts

At the Gooding & Co. auction over the weekend, there were some strong prices but this one just made me so frustrated with the Australian-delivered premium:

996 GT2 with 5 k miles for USD 126,500.

Yep, I know there's the auctioneer's fee, shipping and import duties, but still!

And for once it wasn't a Fezza that set the auction record.

I'm not sure there is such a premium ..... that's $200K Australian sitting at Goodings with premium before you pay transport to the docks, shipping, insurance and import duties to Australia ..... it will owe you at least as much as the 2 for sale in Australia at $275K before you negotiate ..... and it's LHD

Make sure you qualify & meet the rules for bringing back your car after 2(?) years ownership. 

Get a RHD after a thorough check for rust. (Can you keep one in France without being taxed/penalised unfairly?)

A 996 - early one - is probably the only car thats cheaper in Europe than it is here now. 

These days it doesn't make financial sense to do this, so unless you find a car you really love. I wouldnt bother.

On the contrary - if you own one in France and do cool stuff with it then why not bring it in.  You only need to own it for 12 months before you can bring it in, no questions asked.  Just have to pay 10% duty and 10% GST on it.  The value it is calculated on is done by the importer and is not necessarily the market value (because you can't sell it for market value until it is registered)

You will need a RHD if it's under 30 years, or 15 years depending on your intended state you're going to move to.

If getting from Europe (UK or Ireland) then be prepared for rust.   That is a deal killer because you can buy non-rusty cars in Australia.

As said a 996 might be a good buy, or just something that takes your fancy.  Not everything has to be for a profit.  It's a lot of paperwork and waiting but if your cars 'story' matters to you and you like to keep them for a very long time it can be fun.

I guess that is agreeing with 'a car you really love'.  If you're trying to do it to flip a profit it won't work.
