Description
Jaguar - XJ6 - ex Ferdinand A. Porsche - 1976
Located in: Germany - with Austrian registration - 364698 km - 5 - In need of restoration (barn find)

The Jaguar comes from the prominent prior possession of "Ferdinand A. Porsche".

It is fascinating that "Ferdinand A. Porsche", whose most famous work was the design of the "911", drove a red Jaguar privately.

"Ferdinand A. Porsche" was also, of course, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of "Porsche AG", later he was appointed Honorary Chairman.

He had German and Austrian citizenship, the Jaguar was registered to his Austrian address (the "Heuberg Castle", which is owned by the "Porsche" family).

The Jaguar was then passed on to equally affluent ownership, with the registered address directly on a lake: "Zell am See". Its ownership was rewritten by him to his company and his wife. In 2004, the Jaguar was de-registered.

Due to its service life, a careful start attempt is required. In addition, age-related flaws are present, such as pronounced corrosion of the underbody, various rust bubbles, hanging roof liner in places, traces of wear and patina.

The Jaguar is distinguished by its remarkable history. The fact that "Ferdinand A. Porsche" privately owned a vehicle from a competitor to his own brand is astounding.

The Jaguar can be visited in our showroom. The location is Eschweiler, Germany. Eschweiler is close to Aachen and is about 60 km away from Cologne and Dusseldorf.
