Louis Tomlinson is dating student Eleanor Calder

One Direction fans have been flocking to eBay after Louis Tomlinson put his Porsche up for sale on the website.

But they'll have to have a bit of money in the bank if they want to snap up the motor - which comes with the singer's personal numberplate LT11 BOX - as his starting bid is £30,000.

'One rich daddy got in touch saying he wanted to buy it for his daughter,' a source tells The Sun.

'He's had a private bid of £50,000 already.'

Louis, 20, is likely to be a little sad to see his flash car go as he treated himself to it just after 1D started to enjoy huge success last year.

Learner driver girlfriend Eleanor Calder, 19, may also be a bit disappointed that she never got to take the vehicle for a spin.

'@EleanorJCalder how was your driving lesson babe? Will u be cruising around in Louis Porsche anytime soon?? x,' Tweeted Liam Payne's girl Danielle Peazer, 24, in June.
