The first sale RM Sotheby’s dedicated to Porsche, took place on the 27th of October last, and has achieved a turnover of $ 25.8 million selling, 92% of vehicles available. Some lots have recorded auction two times higher than their estimate.
The model that holds the highest bid is the 959 “Paris-Dakar”, 1985, driven by the triple winner of the event, René Metge. Estimated to be between 3 and 3.4 million dollars, this racing machine has finally been awarded a 5-945 000 dollars.
In the second place, we find the unique model “Project Gold”. This car is a 993 Turbo 1998 built this year by the brand from Stuttgart, which drew from its stock of original parts. Estimated to be 154 473 euros, equivalent to the price of the original model out of the factory in 1998, it was finally sold for 3 415 000$!
It’s not the old vehicles that have been turning heads: a 918 Spyder 2015, the supercar hybrid of Porsche developing a whopping 887 horsepower, has harvested 1 407 500 dollars. It is followed by two 911 Carrera RS 2.7 of 1973: a prototype (1 325 000) and a version Lightweight (1 022 500 dollars).
A prototype development (F7) of the supercar 959 of the 1980s, was exchanged for his share, against $ 1 million. First car to go under the million, a 935 K4 race dating back to 1980 was a party for 885 000$.
another batch merit our attention, although it has not been exchanged for sums as high as the models mentioned previously. A Porsche 356 A 1600 ‘Super’ Speedster 1958 output of grange, and in its own juice with 113 390 km original, has found a taker against 307 500 dollars while it was estimated between 125 000 and 150 000 dollars. A beautiful restoration project in perspective.
