Staggering $30M Sale for White Porsche Collection

Record Sale: 2015 918 Spyder for $3.9M

RM Sotheby’s recently auctioned off an impressive selection of vintage and rare Porsche sports cars, known as the Pinnacle Porsche Collection, for a jaw-dropping sum. Dubbed “The White Collection,” the Porsche vehicles alone sold for a combined total of $28.9 million.

We initially heard whispers about this remarkable lot a few years ago, and were utterly caught off guard by the innumerable rare, desirable Porsche cars resting in that single garage. All of the vehicles within the Porsches collection were up for bids earlier in the year, with some exceeding their forecasted selling prices.

Secure the rare opportunity to acquire a 2015 918 Spyder with just 12 miles on the odometer! Featuring a Weissach package, this one-of-a-kind vehicle boasts such an exceptional spec that Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur asked the current owner to keep details private, as completing such an endeavor could never be accomplished a second time.

It was anticipated this elite 918 could bring between $2.5 million and $3 million, yet it managed to smash even those forecasts with one buyer paying a whopping $3.937 million in the end.

Unquestionably, the most lavish automobile in the collection costs considerably more than all the others. For example, the sale of a 2019 911 GT2 RS ‘Weissach’ exceeded one million dollars at $1,006,000. Also, a 2016 911 R went for a remarkable $1,105,000. Even more noteworthy, a rare ’94 911 Turbo S X85 ‘Flat Nose’ achieved a staggering bid of $1,462,500, just shy of its projected value of between $1,500,000 and $2,000,000.

One of the most noteworthy items to be auctioned off was an iconic 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight, which sold for a jaw-dropping $1,875,000. This example of classic German engineering recently commemorated its 50th anniversary and remains among the most sought-after cars ever created by Porsche. Also garnering an enviable sum of money was a Japanese-specified 911 (993) GT2 – one of only 194 manufactured examples – at a price of $2,397,500. Unfortunately, however, not all automobiles sold that day as a 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.0 found no final bidder.

The 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 certainly made an impression at auction, selling for a remarkable $2,073,000. This is one of only two road-legal “Strassenversion” models ever made, and many had expected it to fetch at least the $2.5 million estimate. Surprisingly, that was less than the other road-going RSR auctioned off in Abu Dhabi last month, which went for an even higher price of $2,127,500, despite its less than perfect condition.

Despite the astronomical prices some cars were fetching at the auction, there were also some more affordable classics on offer. Take, for example, the 1977 Porsche 924 ‘Martini Championship Edition’, which sold for an impressive $29,120. This particular car had a low mileage of 24,769 miles, and is one of only 3,000 examples of this model ever built.Often referred to as the “poor man’s Porsche,” the 924 has become a much sought-after classic in recent years. This particular example is a great example of why, with its low mileage and rare edition status.

Regrettably, the breaking up of such a stunning range is inevitable, yet, one can trust that each automobile has been acquired by someone who will appreciate and ride it as desired by Porsche. Different “economically priced” Porsches sold include a 1990 944 S2 Cabriolet ($39,200) and a 1970 914/6 ($89,600).

Aside from the iconic Porsches, the auction comprised of numerous cars from various other brands, a selection of Porsche farm tractors, and an abundance of collectables.
