A diverse spread of Zuffenhausen’s finest at Silverstone’s Porsche Sale
We’ve seen a number of Porsche-only auctions in recent years, no doubt because of the increased demand for – and subsequent values of – the iconic sports cars from Zuffenhausen. Silverstone Auctions’ sale is spearheaded by one of just six right-hand-drive Porsche 356C 2000 GS Coupés. A matching-numbers example presented in concours condition, it’s estimated to make £550,000–650,000.
If ‘Bali Blue’ is a touch on the conservative side for you, the 1958 Porsche 356 A Coupé (est. £65,000–75,000) resplendent in purple may well be more in line with your tastes. It’s in fast road/rally specification and has just been comprehensively restored.
On the younger end of the spectrum, we love the Maritime Blue 1992 Porsche 964 Carrera RS, which is believed to be one of the original 20 ‘racing programme’ N/GT examples (£130,000–150,000), the rare right-hand-drive 1998 Porsche 993 Turbo S (£165,000–185,000), and the brand-new Porsche 991 GT3 Touring in Sapphire Blue Metallic (£150,000–175,000).
In light of the current craze for Porsches breathed on by the wizards at Ruf in Pfaffenhausen, our favourite car from the catalogue is the 2002 Ruf Rturbo (£180,000–220,000), the ex-factory press car that starred in the now famous promotional video at the Nürburgring. You can find our 10 favourites from Silverstone Auctions’ Porsche Sale – taking place on 28 September in Southam, England – listed below or, alternatively, browse the entire catalogue in the Classic Driver Market.
