The Best Cars for Sale On eBay, 7/15/14

“I feel emotionally conflicted. It's like when your mother in-law drives off a cliff in your new Porsche.”—Physicist and Nobel laureate Leon Max Lederman

Nothing but the very best of eBay Motors…

1972 Porsche 911E Targa
If you’re looking for the perfect vintage Porsche, you’re really not going to go wrong here. Upgrades abounded across the board in 1972, with the “E” version of the 911 boasting plenty of power to go with a full slate of creature comforts. This particular car has been thoroughly restored and even retains its original 165 hp engine. Perfect? Kinda. [More pics…]

2005 Saleen S7
Sure, the S7 looks like some sort of four-wheeled spaceship, and it’s got plenty of leather inside, but 2005 was the first year that Saleen went truly nuts and gave it a pair of turbos. The bottom line is it’s an all-American, 750 hp car that can hit 200 mph in just 27 seconds en route to a top speed that, on a good day with the right amount of tail wind, can hit 250 mph.

Ex-Military, Bar-Equipped 1993 Hummer H1
Unlike just about every Hummer you see on the road, this one actually served in the military shuffling around Naval officers. When it retired from active duty, the current owner sunk over $150,000 into it, giving it a sick sound system and custom interior. What truly sets it apart, though, is a damn minibar in the back seat. With a humidor, even. It’s instantly one of the best camping vehicles ever. [More pics…

2001 BMW Z8
Undoubtedly BMW’s sexiest convertible of the last 50 years, the Z8 was designed by Henrik Fisker, who later made the Fisker. Under the hood is the same nearly 400 hp V8 found in an M5; when they were still being produced, BMW was so sure they’d become collectible that they built up an inventory for 50 years worth of spare parts. That’s good to know if one of your neon taillights ever goes out. Incidentally, BMW is fairly certain that will never happen, because neon. [More pics…

Jaguar D-Type Replica
The Jaguar D-Type is an outright legend that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three consecutive times in the mid-1950s. It’s the car that Jaguar’s new F-Type Project 7 is paying homage to six decades later. What you’re looking at is technically a replica that was built in the 1970s, but it’s so painstakingly accurate you’d had to have raced an original to see any difference. [More pics…]

1981 BMW M1
There’s not enough space here to write about how important the M1 is, but the very fact that it was originally supposed to be a BMW/Lambo collaboration should speak volumes. Having an entire race series dedicated to the car that featured contemporary F1 drivers probably says more. Basically, it’s proof that when Italy and Germany work together at things besides war, good things happen. [More pics…

1965 Land Rover Defender 88
Icon, eat your heart out. This Land Rover was first fully restored, then righteously, but subtly, souped up. First went a vintage Chevy V8, then modern Land Rover running gear. A proper sound system followed and the result is a vintage Defender that can go just about anywhere in style. [More pics…
