8/8/2018 11:02 est Filed to: For Sale By: Bradley Brownell Comment This year's Monterey auctions look to have literally something for everyone, and all of the auction houses have gone all-in on Porsche lots, finding some of the best collector Porsches in the world. It's obvious that every year the Monterey auction selection is the best of any auctions all year, providing huge selection and ultimate prestige. In the Porsche world, there are some interesting shifting trends. For example, there is only one 959 available from the nearly two-hundred Porsche lots this year. Likewise, Porsche's transaxle cars are starting to experience something of a following, as multiple auction houses are featuring big-dollar watercooled cars. It'll be interesting to see how this year's sales play out, and sadly I won't be able to do it from Monterey, as I'm missing the festivities for the first time in 6 years. And don't forget about all of the open-top cars Gooding is selling! RM Sotheby's Lot 230 - … [Read more...] about The Incomparable Porsche 2018 Monterey Auction Preview
2011 porsche 911 speedster
Porsche took our breath away when it unveiled the 911 Speedster concept last week at its 70th anniversary celebration. And it may even put it into production, but we’re just speculating. So for now, at least, if you want to get your hands on a 911 Speedster, you’ll have to look to the second-hand market – to examples like this rather splendid one that just so happens to be coming up for auction this summer. A two-seat version of the 911 Cabriolet with a chopped-down windscreen, the Speedster is something of a rarity among 911s. The first version emerged in 1989, based on the original 911. The second came in ’93, the third in 2011. The example you see here is one of just 936 examples made as something of a swan song for the 964 model. It was based on the Carrera 2, but with a smoother nose and tail, a lower windshield, a cowled rear deck (where the cramped rear seats would otherwise be), and an electric rear spoiler that rose at speeds above 50 miles per hour. It … [Read more...] about You Can’t Have Porsche’s New 911 Speedster Concept, But You Can Have This One
Update: 2017 Porsche 911 Sport Classic spy shots Next-gen Porsche Sport Classic and 911 Speedster models could be on the horizon. According to Total 911, limited edition 991.2 Sport Classic and 911 Speedster could be launched as early as next year. The 997-Gen Porsche Sport Classic was first introduced back in 2010 followed by the 911 Speedster in 2011. Both cars were built in limited numbers and were highly sought after by collectors and Porsche enthusiasts. The new 991.2-Gen would also be a limited affair and priced at a premium over the standard range. Key design features of the Sport Classic being the classic duck-tail spoiler, custom colors and livery will be exclusive to the model. The 911 Speedster on the other hand will be characterized by its convertible bodystyle and double-hump decklid. For more on the 2018 Porsche Sport Classic and 911 Speedster, keep watching is space.

5/15/2018 7:24 est Filed to: For Sale By: Bradley Brownell Comment Bonhams Bonhams didn't exactly wow the world of Porsche with their offerings in Monaco this year. Sure, a handful of collectors paid good money for good cars, but there weren't really any headliners for the P-car folks, and the results sort of convey that. In my opinion, the 964 RS pictured above was a good buy, considering rarity, condition, and the iconic color. The 2.7 Carrera RS at RM Sotheby's stole the show, and perhaps deflated the value of the one offered by Bonhams a bit, as it just barely eked out its low estimate sale. With a pair of no-sale lots in an already small offering, there isn't much more to discuss. Total Porsches Offered: 6 | Total Porsches Sold: 4 | Total Porsche Sales: $1,184,234 | Sell Through Rate: 66.7% Lot 108 - 1959 Porsche 356B T5 Roadster - Realized: $165,434 vs. Pre-Auction Est. $150,000 - $210,000 Lot 115 - 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Touring Sunroof Coupe - Realized: $689,310 … [Read more...] about 2018 Porsche Monaco Auction Results
5/4/2018 12:55 est Filed to: For Sale By: Bradley Brownell Comment Monaco is known for high-dollar big-rollers and is synonymous with pricey cars both historic and brand new. Perhaps, then, that is why there are a series of automotive auctions happening in concert with the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique event. Our old friends in the form of RM Sotheby's and Bonhams are showing up to the event with a scad of beautiful Porsche lots. This event is a big deal, and there are some seriously heavy hitters on the auction roster for this event. Here is a breakdown of our favorites. Grab a paddle and start bidding, if you can get on the bidder's list. With only six Porsche lots for Monaco, Bonhams is clearly focusing on other marques. That said, the ones they are bringing are exciting in and of themselves. Any auction that includes a 2.7 RS is always worthy of the attention of Porsche fiends, and this white example is no different. Toss in a gorgeous Rubystone 964 RS and a 997 GT3 RS 4.0, … [Read more...] about The Opulent Porsche 2018 Monaco Auction Preview
Porsche n'en a produit que 356 exemplaires en 2011. Les récentes photos espion montrent que Porsche prépare une nouvelle 911 Speedster, qui pourrait très probablement servir de modèle d'adieu en édition limitée pour l'actuelle génération dénommée 991. Si vous n'avez pas la patience d'attendre sa commercialisation, ou que vous ne pensez pas être assez rapide (ou riche) pour faire partie de sa liste de clients, alors cet exemplaire de la génération précédente, lancée en 2011, pourrait être un excellent choix. Elle est actuellement mise en vente pour la somme de 269'800 dollars américains, soit l'équivalent d'environ 217'800 euros. Le penchant de Porsche pour ce type de carrosserie remonte à la 356 Speedster de la fin des années 1950. La marque allemande a ensuite créé des éditions limitées basées sur la 911 en 1989, 1994 et 2011. Pour … [Read more...] about Vous attendez la nouvelle Porsche 911 Speedster ?

Porsche are continuously developing the all-new 911 which should debut next year sometime but it seems the manufacturer is planning a swansong for the current generation with a new 911 Speedster. It should come with a handful of new visual upgrades but will most definitely feature a unique roof mechanism. Taking a look at these spy shots you can see the camouflage over the rear portion of the cloth roof which indicates a design change. It should have the same appealing profile as the previous Speedster models with the most recent one coming way back in 2011.

Tweet TweetJerry Seinfield sells his Porsches. Not all of them, though. I have no idea why, but looking at the selling list, I can only say there are some amazing models on it! Jerry Seinfeld owns one of the most impressive Porsche collection, assessed at over $15m. He owns some of the rarest Porsches ever made, and keeps them in a $1.4m garage. It isn’t any information regarding the exact number of cars, especially because it changes from time to time. But some say is around 50. Some of the rarest models in his collection are: one of the 337 Porsche 959 ever built, a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, exactly like the one owned by James Dean and my personal favorite, a 1990 Porsche 962C, that will be auctioned in just over a month. A part of them will be sold at the Amelia Island Auction will take place on 11 March 2016, and for only $200 (bidder registration) you’ll have the opportunity to buy some of the finest Porsche models.

The 2019 Porsche 911 range will be headed by a 630bhp Turbo S - and the hottest model has just been spotted testing in Scandinavia.As shown by our spy pictures, the entire line-up will receive a more muscular look, featuring a raised engine cover that takes influence from the iconic design of Speedster models from yesteryear.But the Turbo and Turbo S models will remain the most aggressive, with wide rear arches and a fixed rear wing signalling their potent performance - read on for more about that.Much of their added muscle comes thanks to the next-gen 911's haunched back, which resembles that of 2011's 997 Speedster (itself a model influenced by the original 356 Speedster from 1954).The raised rear is likely a design feature rather than a technical requirement to fit a hybrid powertrain. Although the 992-generation 911 will be the first to be offered with hybrid technology, Autocar understands that this change will have no … [Read more...] about 2019 Porsche 911: new pics of 630bhp Turbo S
