Paddock-pleasing Porsche duo to go under the hammer in December

What’s the best way to stand out in the historic racing paddock? With a transporter that’s as much of a conversation-starter as the car in which you’re racing, of course. Auctionata will offer this quirky duo at its Porsche Only sale in December…

Talking point

The car pictured started life as a 1977 Porsche 930, before it underwent an extensive conversion into a monstrous Group 5 935 racer in 2000. Included in the myriad modifications were an upgraded 3.2-litre turbocharged engine, developing 610HP, a reinforced body shell with rollcage, and an adjustable spoiler. Allegedly ready to race in historic Group 5 races, it’s offered together with the Magirus transporter, said to be modelled on the famous Mercedes-Benz period Porsche transporter, which wears the same distinctive livery. With a lifting capacity of 1,500kg (sufficient for almost any historic Porsche racer), it could prove the perfect part of your motorsport operation, and a recognisable hub from which to coordinate your weekend’s racing. Auctionata has attached a pre-sale estimate of 250,000-300,000 euros.
