This Guy Wants To Trade His Island For A Porsche 918 Spyder

If you have one of Porsche's super exclusive hybrid Hypercars, but you're getting a little tired of it and would like to trade it for something, one Florida man may have the out you're looking for. The 918 Spyder sold new for just over eight-hundred grand, and maybe you figure that's about what you'd like to pay for an undeveloped private three acre island in Port Orange, Florida. Lucky for you, because that's the exact trade this listing is proposing over on It seems a bit optimistic to me on the part of the island-seller, as 918 Spyders have been trading hands for over one million dollars basically since production ended. Then again, it's always wise to keep in mind the old P.T. Barnum-ism, " There's a sucker born every minute".  

Playing advocate for the devil, I'll simply ask what's so great about a 918 Spyder? It's just a car. A car that looks as exciting as a rocket to the moon. A car that sprints from zero to sixty faster than you can read this sentence. A car that makes use of exotic materials and precision hand-crafting to demolish nearly every other car ever built in nearly any metric. An island, however, is an island. What do you say, are you game to trade your 918 for this island? Sadly there is just the one photograph of the property, so who knows if it's actually as nice as it appears. Secondary question, who knew you could buy your own island for approximately $850,000?
