Porsche and RM Sotheby’s to auction last 911 (991) for charitable COVID-19 fundraiser
Exclusive auction of a 911 Speedster also includes limited-edition Porsche Design timepiece, behind-the-scenes tour of Porsche AG’s vehicle testing facility and track in Weissach, Germany, and more.
(PCNA) and RM Sotheby’s will host a unique charitable auction with a money-can’t-buy package for Porsche enthusiasts. The one-week auction in the U.S. will be held via RM Sotheby’s Online Only auction platform to adhere to social distancing guidelines without delaying the charitable fundraiser.
United Way continues to step up to the plate and their response to this crisis has been quite impressive. So we are proud to do our part. I also appreciate the swift support of RM Sotheby’s to make this possible and I am hopeful that the sale of a very special Porsche will help in a small way.
Last Porsche 911 of the 991 generation comes off the production line
Pioneer, millionaire, bestseller: the 991 series has been the most comprehensively-developed generation of the 911 to date. The winning bidder and a guest will be invited to take a personal, behind-the-scenes tour of the Porsche AG Weissach development headquarters – including experiencing the test track – on a 1:1 basis with Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser and Andreas Preuninger, heads of the 911 and GT model lines respectively. The car will also be accompanied by a one-of-a-kind book illustrating the assembly and completion of the last 991, including photographs and an original sketch by the Speedster design team.
Info The auction will open for bidding on RM Sotheby’s Online Only platform at 11:00 am EDT (5:00 pm CEST) on Wednesday 15 April, closing at 1:00 pm EDT (7:00 pm CEST) on Wednesday 22 April. The 911 Speedster is offered without reserve, selling to the highest bidder.
