Keep in mind that, despite Zuffenahusen initially promising to bring 1,500 units of the supercar to the world, production ceased in 2006, with just 1,270 units having been born.
As for how much money one would need to add such a rear-wheel-drive icon to the collection nowadays, the actual price obviously varies depending on the mileage and condition of the car. However, a financial side of $1 million seems reasonable.

Sure, most of the company's sportscar range has gone turbo, but, for instance, the atmospheric 911 GT3 and GT3 RS are about to be joined by the 718 Cayman GT4 and 718 Boxster Spider, which will make their debuts later this year. In fact, the rumor mill talks about the pair being animatged by downtuned versions of the 4.0-liter motor that powers the Neunelfer mentioned above.
