Ex-Porsches of Zlatan and van Basten are for sale

Top athletes often have a soft spot for fast cars. The stories about Boris Becker and his Porsche 959, which he once maxed out in Italy, are unforgettable. Footballers in particular are said to enjoy driving expensive sports cars. Today, Elferspot has two cars from legendary AC Milan players on offer.

Marco van Basten gave himself a Porsche 928 GT as a gift for his second Ballon d’or

Marco van Basten was the best football player in the world at the end of the 1980s. Together with his compatriots Ruud Gullit and Frank Rijkaard, he formed a Dutch axis at AC Milan. The Holland trio was mainly responsible for two consecutive titles in the European Champion’s Cup, the forerunner of today’s Champions League.

With his goals, van Basten quickly made himself immortal in Milan. In his second year with the Rossoneri, he became world footballer for the first time. A year later, in 1989, van Basten again became world footballer. On this occasion, the Dutch goal scorer gave himself a gift, according to the seller: This very Porsche 928 GT.

Marco van Basten kept the Porsche 928 GT for over 30 years

Van Basten, who became world soccer champion for the third time in 1992, chose a very tasteful configuration for the Grand Tourismo. On the outside, it comes in a discreet Murano green, while the interior is dominated by simple, black elegance. As befits a sports car, Marco van Basten ordered the Porsche 928 GT with a manual transmission.

As with his clubs, the Dutch soccer legend was loyal to his Porsche for a long time. Some of the almost 80,000 kilometers driven are probably down to the world striker. After all, it’s fun to travel in a 330-hp V8 transaxle Porsche. The asking price is a moderate 65,000 euros.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic also drove Porsche in Milan

Another striker whose name recognition is hardly inferior to van Basten’s is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. From 2010 to 2012, the eccentric Swede laced up his boots for the first time for AC Milan. In 2020, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who likes to call himself a Lion, returned to Milan. Although Ibrahimovic has failed to win the Ballon d’or or the Champions League, he has won the Swedish Footballer of the Year ten times in a row and has five goalscoring crowns as the season’s top scorer.

His comparatively meager haul of international titles did not diminish his fame in the slightest. Even today, Zlatan is one of the absolute superstars of the business. The seller states, that in 2010, Ibrahimovic looked around for a convertible and ordered this Porsche 997.2 Turbo S Cabriolet. By Zlatan’s standards, this 500 hp steam hammer, which is black on the outside and inside, comes across as almost discreet. Only the yellow belts and dials set colorful accents.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet had it all in terms of technology

For this, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made all the crosses in the technology: 7-speed Porsche Double-Clutch-Gearbox, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, carbon fiber steering wheel, vented seats and much more made this 997.2 a real tech fest. Price wise, the car is also within a moderate range at the equivalent of around 115,000 euros when purchased in Sweden. Especially with the low mileage of just under 17,000 kilometers.
