A rare 1981 Porsche 928 transformed into a convertible by Carelli Design is for sale on eBay.

Only eight of these cars were converted by Carelli and back in 1981 the first owner paid 103,000 USD. Now, its third owner is selling the car and at the moment of writing the highest bid stands at 25,100 USD, with four days still to go before the listing ends.

Driven for only 6,333 miles (10,192 km), the convertible 928 is all original with the exception of the muffler and exhaust tip along with a switch to control the antenna. It rides on 16-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in Pirelli P7 tires and benefits from an independent front & rear suspension along with a hydraulic power-assisted rack and pinion steering system.

Power comes from a V8 4.5-liter engine delivering 230 bhp (171 kW) at 5,250 rpm to the rear wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission. The 1,480 kg convertible does 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 7.5 seconds before topping out at 143 mph (230 km/h).
