1967 Porsche 910 – Click above for high-res image gallery

Today's eBay find of the day is a particularly rare Porsche, a 1967 910 Spyder coupe. "Spyder Coupe," you say? But that makes no sense! This particular car began life in early 1967 as the third of five 910 Spyders built by the factory for European hillclimb competition. After winning two of four races in '67 as part of the factory team, the car was rebuilt and offered for sale. It was purchased by John von Neuman, who raced it for the next two years in the U.S.

Eventually, the original Spyder bodywork was replaced with a coupe shell and the car passed through several collections over the next 30 years. It currently resides at Symbolic Motor Cars in La Jolla, California, where we stumbled across it a couple of months ago while browsing. If you happen to be in La Jolla, Symbolic has a pretty impressive inventory; at the time of our visit, it included two Bugatti Veyrons, a Lamborghini Reventon, a 1963 Shelby 289 Cobra and a number of Ferraris whose vintages range the 1960s to the present.

Oh, and the asking price for the Porsche 910? A cool $995,000.

      Just beautiful. Clean and tiny as opposed to the big, fat, ugly 'sports cars' of today.

        Your comment was well thought out. I am astonished at the insight you have to mach such a remarkable statement about a rare, vintage sports car.

        thank you for sharing!!

        Yes, thank-you lorenzo.

        If only there was a "material-change" on the dealership floor under the car, then maybe they could sell it for a higher price.

        I'm not cross at all. I'm just having a laugh at your expense. Cheer-up. Don't be so serious.

        By the way, I wear the "newbie" title as a badge of honor. I don't spend a lot of time on forums because I have this thing called 'a life'.

        I don't understand you're acura tl comment, I don't own one. Maybe that's a comment you took from another thread. Not very impressive coming from a 'forum professional' like yourself.

        P.S. That fiat is very cute. Do you have a pair of white shoes that you wear without socks when you drive it to your favorite nightclub?

      I think you buy this if you are Jerry Seinfeld.
      with a collection of Porsches, and want one more to park and look at.
      very cool piece of history, beautiful car.

        I would have never guessed that someone would want to purchase this car as a collectors item. I would have guessed that they would want to do a 2 JZ swap and invert the tires and put a triple spoiler on the back and add Navi via the new ipad to the interior.

      Gorgeous!

      I had the opportunity to visit Symbolic In Vegas last year. They had three veyrons, number 1/20 reventon, a CCX-R, the ever mysterious vector, a ford GT, Saleen S7, some other rare super machines, and more lambos than you can shake a stick at.

      Why, oh why, do people have to use the word "stunning" to describe everything? Stunning house. Stunning girlfriend. Stunning Porsche. For G'd sake people, expand your vocabulary.

      I just went down there and saw this yesterday when I was in there area. They also have a few other race cars from various companies, off the top of my head I remember at least one Lotus, ISO, Lister, and a 911 race car from a generation or 2 ago.

      I wish a Vector would show up at the Symbolic down here in San Diego. I adore them, say what you want about them being awful cars but there is no denying how bad ass they look, especially the W8!

      LOL. It's not like they're trying to sell 10 a month...they only need to find one sucker to pay the 995K!
      But they're crazy to sit on it....@10% cost of money they're losing 100K per year!
      Perhaps they don't have anything better to do with their money, but most likely they have much less than 995K tied up in it.

        Not as crazy as sitting on the reventon since it debuted.
