5 favourites from Auctionata’s Porsche Only sale

The auction trend of 2015 has definitely been a move towards the single-marque sale. The third such auction this year, Auctionata’s Porsche Only sale follows its successful Ferrari-only affair, and comprises 25 of Zuffenhausen’s finest. These are our five favourites…

1970 Porsche 911 2.3 ST 

The car with the highest estimate at the Porsche Only sale (1.3-1.5m euros), this is one of just 10 911 STs that were converted by the factory to ‘Group IV Special GT’ specification. Producing 230HP and weighing a scant 930kg, its power-to-weight ratio is remarkably impressive even by today’s standards. Though its overall mileage is unknown and there’s an absence of matching numbers, this important and highly eligible 911 will no doubt attract heaps of attention when it goes across the block. 

1988 Porsche 959

The understated poster car of the 1980s, Porsche’s Group B-specification 959 was revolutionary and, at the time, made its rivals look frankly archaic. This car was driven from new for around 8,000km, before being stored in the ‘Automuseum Albert Streicher’, where it remained until 2004. Since then, its new owner has barely driven the car, its current mileage showing just 8,300km. It is estimated to fetch 1.2m-1.4m euros.

1989 Porsche 964 Speedster

The Porsche 964 Speedster has enjoyed increased interest in recent years, and though some 2,000 were built, really good examples are becoming more and more difficult to find. Unrestored, and with an alleged accident-free history, this 1989 model has a recorded 30,000km on the clock and looks suitably stealthy in its all-black colour combination. Auctionata reckons it’ll make 270,000-300,000 euros. 

1973 Porsche 911 E 2.4-litre

The specification of this 1973 Porsche 911 E 2.4-litre is superb: Signal Yellow paintwork, Recaro bucket seats, an electric-sliding sunroof, front and rear anti-roll bars and those timeless Fuchs alloy wheels. Estimated at 140,000-160,000 euros, the car isn’t perfect, but then it has covered 85,000 miles. Let’s hope its next custodian has the same idea… 

1994 Porsche 964 Carrera 30th Anniversary

This is no ordinary Porsche 964. Delivered new to Switzerland, this 964 Carrera is number 830 of 911 ’30 Years 911’ special editions built, and features Turbo-look bodywork and the powertrain from the Carrera 4. With rarity on its side, Auctionata has attached a pre-sale estimate of 210,000-230,000 euros.
