This Porsche-inspired speedboat is an amphibious 911 for car collectors

0

The Porsche 911 has stamped its authority on the roads all these years with its unique design and power to keep fans interested. So what more could this Porsche 911 convertible be? A speedboat on the waters in that sublime Porsche style, perhaps!

This Amphibious 911 is a Craig Craft 168 Boss up and nicknamed the Porsche Boat. The speedboat is up for auction on Bring A Trailer, and given its appeal, the ride could be expensive.

Designer: Bring a Trailer

You could call it a speedboat with Porsche skin because it’s not all related to the iconic car in any way. That’s because it’s powered by a GM 4.3-liter V6 engine and hooked up to a Berkley jet drive unit (with hydraulically operated reverse bucket) capable of forward and reverse propulsion. The two round Bosch headlights are raised above the bow and elements such as the mirrors, windshield and curved lines replicate the brand’s appeal. Badges and logos on the exterior and interior also instil faith in its Porsche origin.

The fiberglass shell is clad in black and yellow for a classic German automotive influence, and is well complemented by the matching interior. Inside, this four-seat outboard features a premium stereo system, ski pylon, bucket seats and bow storage to store your essentials on a long cruise. water walk. That speedometer, tachometer and 80 mph gauges add another element of nostalgia. Undoubtedly, buyers with fat pockets who already own the black 964 or 993 generation 911 convertible will want to buy this house.

According to the listing, the boat has been in storage for over 27 years and last year a V6 engine was replaced. The seller also claims that the Porsche boat was only used for cruising for about three hours. This includes running time when it was with the previous owner. So, practically speaking, this outboard is like new in that sense. As of this writing, the bid has reached $21,500, and it will be interesting to see how much it ultimately sells for at auction.
