Check Out $10 Million of Porsches Auctioned Off in One Day
Take a look at the finest Porsches money can buy, fresh from yesterday’s RM Sotheby’s auction in Paris.
RM Sotheby's auction yesterday was, as you'd expect, rife with classics like Alfas, Ferraris, and Maseratis—but it was Porsche that had the strongest showing by far. The marque pulled in roughly $10.2 million for the Canada-based auction house in one day alone.
Save for a few models, the Porsche selection seems like it was torn directly out of the brand's greatest hits book, with new and old models alike—a Pre-A 356 bodied by Reutter and a new 911 R, for example—sandwiching some of the best cars to come from Zuffenhausen. Overall, the auction pulled off some hugely successful Porsche sales—the 1988 959 Sport set a new world record, and the 993 Turbo Cabriolet that sold for $1.4 million likely caused a few jaws to drop. But unfortunately, the 1970 917/10 prototype didn't end up selling, despite an entertaining bidding war.
The total tab? $10,251,363.
So what does more than $10 million in Porsches look like? Check it out below.
