The 911 Speedster will be auctioned off, the proceeds collected for United Way Worldwide.
The Porsche 911 is the last car of the special 991 generation. This is the last of the 1948 Speedster produced in this generation. It will be auctioned through RM Sotheber’s unique online auction platform and the proceeds will be donated to help with COVID-19 relief.
The Porsche 911 Speedster is basically a wingless and wingless GT3. It is the seventh generation product of Porsche’s most iconic nameplate. The vehicle is equipped with a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine. The engine delivers 9000 rpm, with a good old six-speed manual transmission.
This last Speedster is finished in GT Silver Metallic and features the Heritage Design package. The car’s odometer reads 20 miles, and the car has never been registered. The base price for a 911 Speedster is a lofty $275,750, but you can expect someone will pay a whole lot more than that on this occasion.
Through RM Sotheby’s Online Only auction platform, and proceeds will be donated to United Way Worldwide’s coronavirus Community Response and Recovery Fund. The auction will start on April 15 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time and closes April 22 at 1:00 p.m.
Also included with the car is a bespoke 911 Speedster Heritage Design Chronograph from Porsche Design. The watch consisted of a strap made from cognac leather and a silver scroll wheel identical to the wheels found on the Speedster. The Swiss-made watch also has the chassis number of this final 991-generation 911.
The winning bidder also went to Porsche’s Weissach development headquarters in Germany to take a behind-the-scenes tour and a tour of the test track. There are also Frank-Steffen Walliser and Andreas Preuninger, heads of the 911 and GT models.
