Luxury hotelsIt's quite possible that this Phaeton is the only fully original 998 model in usable condition. Most of the 998s produced were actually exported to Norway or Sweden, where they were used by luxury hotels to transport passengers from ships to their destinations. This makes finding an original and well-preserved 998 all the more impressive and valuable.
