A Large Collection of White Porsche will Soon Be Auctioned

A large Porsche collection will soon be up for auction by RM Sotheby's.

  • This 56-car bundle includes models such as the 356, the 918 Spyder, and of course, plenty of 911s.

  • All of the cars wear a shade of white and display low mileage.

  • Two Porsche tractors and close to 500 pieces of brand memorabilia will also be auctioned.

A large collection of Porsche vehicles and memorabilia will soon go under the hammer at RM Sotheby’s.

This unique collection features 56 Porsche sports cars, all of which are painted various shades of white, with the exception of a dark red 1956 356 “Pre-A” 1500 America Coupe.

This stand-out model is one of the six 356 models included in the collection, each of which is estimated to sell for prices between US $150,000 and $750,000.

Other models present in the collection are a 914, a 928, a 924, two 944s, and a 918 Spyder, the latter of which is expected to command the highest bid, estimated between US $2.5 and $3 million.

Of course, a Porsche collection is not complete without a 911, and you won’t be surprised to learn that the emblematic model accounts for the bulk of the automotive lots, with 43 units up for grabs.

Representing each generation of the 911 from a 1965 Coupe to a 2021 Targa Heritage Design model, this selection of sports cars also includes some of the rarest editions of the 911.

Indeed, present are a 1-of-2 1993 Carrera RSR “Strassenversion” that only shows 70 kilometres on the odometer, and a 1994 911 Turbo S X85 “Flat Nose” hand-built special edition of which only 39 examples were built for the US market. 39 is also the number of miles this unit has driven since leaving the factory.

Of course, these two lots are among the most valuable vehicles that will cross the block on December 1 and 2, with the former expected to sell for US $2 to $2.5 million and the latter for $1,5 to $2 million.

Would-be buyers whose budget doesn’t stretch quite that far might want to look at other lots such as the two Porsche tractors which should find new homes for US $50,000 – 75,000 a piece, or one of the 500-plus pieces of brand memorabilia that rounds out the 566-lot collection.

Included are countless pieces of advertising material from the 50s to today, Porsche-designed furniture, toy cars, dealership display items, car accessories, Porsche-branded bikes and sports equipment, signed automotive art pieces, as well as luggage sets, and press kits for various Porsche models.

While Porsche is obviously the main focus of this particular auction, five non-Porsche vehicles have infiltrated the collection, namely a 1932 Ford Custom Coupe HotRod, a 1940 Ford Custom Pickup, a 1968 Kellison Sandpiper Roadster (a Beetle-based Dune Buggy), a 1952 Kleinschnittger F-125 Roadster, and a 1955 VW Beetle Custom.

It will be interesting to see the final price each item sells for in about two months.
