IN BRIEF

FPV FOR SALE IN UK

AUSSIE ex-pats in the UK had the chance to buy themselves a slice of Oz in this 2003 FPV GT.

Up for sale on eBay, the vehicle was imported into Britain by a Ford technician with almost 160,000km on its clock. Despite its rarity in Old Blighty, the orange and black FPV sold for just 6,850 British pounds, or roughly AUD$11,570. That was even despite having most of its suspension bits replaced – and its 5.4-litre V8 warmed over by way of an induction kit, exhaust, and computer chip. The price is much cheaper than what an equivalent car would fetch in Oz.

DIAL-A-PORSCHE

YOU CAN fang Porsches and forget about registering, repairing, or even cleaning them thanks to Porsche America’s new Passport program. Set up with Clutch Technologies, a software platform company, the service grants members on-demand access to fleets with unrestricted mileage. You’ll need to stump up a one-off $500 fee before paying an on-going monthly cost of $2000 for access to eight cars including 718s, Macans, and Cayennes; or $3000 for access to 911s, Panameras, and GTS variants. Unfortunately, it’s currently only available in Georgia, Atlanta.
