Every bought something and been disappointed at the quality of it? You're not the only one. A German billionaire and car enthusiast, Andreas Pohl, is suing British car dealer Coys of Kensington for selling him a £390,000 Porsche that turned out to be in quite a bad state.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Pohl decided to buy this rare and expensive 911 after seeing it stated as being in 'good condition'. Like many busy people, he bought the car without actually seeing it first, which can always be risky but then that's why you buy from a reputable dealer...

Legal documents stated that Pohl was told the car was authentic and in its original condition. But after taking delivery he claims to have discovered the body had been rebuilt to a later model, featured replacement doors, had an aluminium rather than magnesium crankcase, electrical plug connections, reinforcing plates, and screw connections for safety belts. So, not so original after all. Maybe he should settle for this instead...

Pohl has also stated that be not able to register the car because the brakes and axles are corroded and the steering system leaks. He therefore said it is 'unsafe' to drive.

After a bit of back and forth with his agent, Pohl came out and demanded a refund for the car which he claims Coys agreed to. However, Coys have denied that they ever agreed to pay up.
