We simply can’t pick between this pair of perfect Porsche racers

If you’ve got cash to spend you’ll be spoilt for choice at the Rétromobile 2022 auction by Artcurial Motorcars in Paris on March 18th. We wouldn’t be able to choose between the 1974 Porsche 911 RSR and the 1968 Porsche 907.

Get your wallets ready, because if you have the requisite cashflow you’ll definitely be bidding on these two holy grail Porsches going up for auction at the Rétromobile 2022 sale by Artcurial Motorcars in Paris on March 18th. The first is perhaps one of history’s coolest race cars - a 1968 Porsche 907 with prodigious race history. The yellow on white liveried car you see here, chassis 907-031, came 4th at the Nürburgring 1000 Km in 1968, and boasts three entries in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970,1971, and 1972. Adding to its historical significance is the fact that 907-031 was the last 907 built, and to top it all off it comes with a complete ownership chain, as you’d hope for car with an estimate of 4 to 6 million euros. All in, this is an unbelievably desirable automobile, and sure to be the envy of everyone at the next historic event it attends. 

The second Porsche going under the hammer may have a more familiar silhouette than the 907, but that doesn’t diminish its wow-factor. This 1974 Porsche 911 RSR 3.0 is the ultimate evolution of one of the best competition models Porsche ever made for private customers. With less than 60 made, this car, chassis 9077, is certainly of a rare breed and also boasts an illustrious racing history. Sold new to Georg Loos for his Gelo Racing team, the car achieved two class wins in 1974, first at the Nürburgring 1000 Km and then at the 1000 Km at Le Castellet. It would continue to race until it was bought by current owner in 1985. As one of the most successful examples of one of Porsche’s great racing machines, and having been with the current owner for nearly 40 years, this is certainly a good way to invest a couple million euros. So, if you had to choose between the 907 and the RSR, which would you pick? A tough decision that’s for sure.
