Porsche 911 Carrera 4: Porsche of Metallica drummer for sale!

Porsche 911 Carrera 4
This Porsche 911 Carrera 4 formerly belonged to Kirk Hammett and is currently being auctioned off at eBay. Nice grab and it comes with extra stuff!

Imagine driving Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett’s Porsche 911 C4 jamming to Metallica on the stereo he paid $20,000 for back in 1990. Kirk’s car stereo was featured in one of the Car and Driver type magazines (I’ve not been able to track down the exact details and Kirk just doesn’t remember.) This collectors dream is a direct descendent of the awe inspiring 959 SUPER CAR! In 1989 an egineering dynasty was created. Porsche proudly introduced the C4 (The peoples 959) in limited production numbers with speeds over 180mph, precise power assist steering and it’s unmatched all wheel drive handling capabilities of a true race car. The C4 is one of the most competent road going cars in the world. This fine example is in excellent condition and is barely broke in with only 50,000 miles. It is hard to beleive it is eighteen years old. It has been well taken care of by the Metallica family. There has been over $100,000 invested in this machine. The original manuals, window sticker and signed documents are included. There is an interesting piece of Metallica history involving this car. “THE BET” In 1991 shortly before the release of the eponymous Metallica album (known as the Black Album) Kirk and Tour Manager Tony Smith were on a flight talking about the upcoming album release. Kirk mentioned that he was concerned that it might be a little to different for people to accept. Tony said not to be concerned and that it would probably sell 10 million copies. Kirk responded by saying that if it did sell 10 million copies that he would give Tony his new prized possession Porsche. For a couple of years this became the source of some good natured fun and teasing beween the band members and Tony. A few years later, while the band was touring, the Black Album was cetified as 10x platinum (10 million sold in the USA.) By this time the conversation about the Porsche had been mostly forgotten. However, at the end of one leg of the tour, Kirk gave Tony an envelope. Inside were the ownership documents and the keys to his Porsche 911 Carrera 4. It was a very special time for all those involved who new the meaning behind the gesture. This is how this car can now be offered for sale to you by Tony Smith. Tony is also including to the lucky winner some priceless one of a kind Metallica treasures. Some of these items you will never see again. The rarest of the rare signed gas receipt, very rare signed photo of Kirk, signed oil change receipt, signed dealer sheet, original warranty application with Kirk’s extremely rare full signature, a hard to find controversial photo of the band, a signed letter from Kirk to Tony including the history of this car, 6 guitar picks, 2 exclusive club show tickets from 1996, very exclusive!!! 2 tour itineraries, and there are 11 tour passes, working passes, after show passes, backstage passes, and meet and greet passes. these are extremely hard to come by and they are all authentic!!!
