SCAM (?): 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Vorsteiner – Kansas City, MO

**UPDATE 9/12/18: We all know about Craigslist scams.  They are usually pretty easy to spot when a vehicle is amazingly low priced, short on details or has one sketchy picture with out of state tags. Some scams are not so apparent and it’s not until you communicate with the seller that red flags start appearing. Apparently this listing is such an example – out of state storage, airline pilot, fake warehouse website, and fake CarFax report.  Very likely that the scammers used pictures from an actual car being sold which can make this even more confusing.  While the listing has been removed from Craigslist, we want to warn our readers since this probably isn’t the last time this picture will end up on Craigslist.   Let us know if you see any scams so we can share with our other readers and be careful.  Thank you for sharing BURGERKING!

I tried to buy this. This listing is a scam. Seller claimed to be an airline pilot that had moved to London. Little did he realize, I’m an ex-pat with a couple of good friends who are pilots. Tried to say car was at a warehouse in TX. Even sent me fabricated car fax report and inspection report (with the same car picture). Scammers even set up a fake site for the TX warehouse. Someone replied to that asking if they knew of the Lotus Evora they had for sale being sold by the same pilot. I should have been suspicious as soon as I was contacted with 3 different email addresses…)

**UPDATE 8/8/18: Seller has updated their listing on Craigslist and lowered the price of the vehicle to $35,500. **

6/29/18: Seller offering a 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Vorsteiner with 14,600 miles for $38,500.  Vehicle has been modified with 20′ Maya wheels, Vorsteiner body kit, GT3 front with carbon fiber lip, carbon fiber rear spoiler, carbon fiber engine air box, rear carbon fiber diffuser and lowered springs.  Color combination of original Meteor Gray paint over black/stone grey interior is sharp.    Seller says vehicle has always been garaged, minimal wear, no smoking, looks and drives amazing.
