Video: The greatest classified car advert ever

Updated: 


Normally we despair of online car adverts – writing your sales pitch all in capital letters and telling porkies about how quick your modified hatchback is generally won't get us to part with our cash.

That's why this Porsche 911 Targa owner is such a breath of fresh air and why everyone with a car to sell should pay attention to his advert entitled "Get a life. Buy my Porsche."

Ok, you probably won't go to the lengths he has to sell his 145,000 mile 1985 classic, as he has created a two minute 30 seconds video and put together a website and a full photo shoot to accompany his Auto Trader ad.

What's more, the video is a long way off him walking around the car with a shaky cameraphone and is actually quite amusing.

The maker, Peter Bohus, convincingly sells the Porsche lifestyle in the few words he attaches to the advert, saying:

"I am reluctant to sell my beautiful Porsche 911 Supersport Targa as I no longer have the time or energy to cope with the pressures of being in the public eye of admirers, gorgeous women constantly falling at my feet, always having to arrive in style to decadent fetish parties, long drives to classic motor shows and trying to find a parking space at Les Trois Garcons'.

I'm now looking for the right candidate to hand down this hedonist roof down boxer engined lifestyle so that I may retire and have a long break in Nepal."

He shouldn't have long to wait before someone comes up with the £10,911 he is asking for it.
