1993 Mercedes-Benz 500E
Well, now we know that Porsche builds the Panamera, as well as some SUVs, but twenty years ago, Porsche was a low-volume builder of just a few models of sportscar. Oh, and this Mercedes-Benz.
Yes, Porsche built this V8-powered monster under contract for Mercedes by hand. Big power, luxurious interior, and a widened suspension to handle the power made this one special mid-sized sedan.
The seller notes but two flaws – a droopy headliner, and missing console-mounted cellphone. The phone is no big loss, as it likely won’t work on modern networks anyhow, but that headliner can be tricky to fix. Otherwise, this looks like a perfect sleeper.
It’s on eBay in California for $27k or offer.
