The 1957 model since the 1970s has been standing alone in a barn in the U.S, growing rusty.

When a vehicle refuses to perform its deed, most of the time, its owner will dispel it. However, there are also people who will keep it as a good memory or for no reason why and sometimes it bears good fruits.

This famed model hasn’t been on roads for 45 years since its brakes could not pass a safety check in Georgia in the early 1970s

This case of an old Porsche which has been inactive for years for its failed brakes can attest to it. The rusty car is being put a price tag of £500,000(~N260m).

First showcased in 1955, the Porsche 356A 1500 GS Carrera Coupe was hoped to slot between the borders of the company’s racing cars and sports vehicles to earn the best from the two.

However, this famed model hasn’t been on roads for 45 years since its brakes could not pass a safety check in Georgia in the early 1970s.

The 1957 model since then has been standing alone in a barn in the U.S, growing rusty.

The U.S auction house Gooding & Co tagged a guide price of £500,000 prior to its sale at Amelia Island, Florida, which happened on March 9.

If completely made alive with a new look, the car could reach the highest price of N370m.
