This year at the Monterey Car Week auctions, there is one particular house that has paid close attention to the Porsche market and aimed a large portion of their catalog at Porsche enthusiasts like you and me. I’ll let you look at the auction listings and decide for yourself who is the committed Porsche auction house, but it’s pretty self-evident in my eyes. Like years past, there are some mega interesting lots for sale here, and several of them with pre-estimates in the millions of dollars. This has been an excellent year for Porsche buyers at auction, and Monterey will be no different. You have your choice of two different 964 Flachbau Turbos, a 935 that has logged wins at Le Mans, Sebring, and Daytona, a 550 Spyder, a custom 356 Carrera coupe, plus the requisite Carrera GT, 959, and 2.7 RS offerings. This is going to be an excellent series of auctions, and if your looking to start a collection or help bolster one, you’ll regret not attending.
RM is only offering three Porsche lots this year in Monterey, but as luck would have it, they’ve got some of the hottest markets in Porsche-land right now, a blue-chip and a couple of recent up-and-comers in the collector market. As Porsche people, we’ve known that the Carrera GT and the 3 liter Turbos were undervalued in the market, and things are finally evening out. It happened really quickly, which took us by surprise in the last couple of years, but RM is capitalizing on the fervor.
Lot 247 – 2004 Porsche Carrera GT (Est. $650,000 – 700,000)
Is there really any Porsche more beautiful than a GT Silver Metallic Carrera GT? This car has become an icon among supercars in just a few short years, and is known as among the last truly analog supercars sold. This is a wild child car that can be extremely fast, and extremely fun, but only in the right hands. If you’re inexperienced with high-power cars, you may want to search elsewhere, as you would probably be more scared than excited.
This particular Porsche was sold originally in Hawaii, which seems like an excellent place to have enjoyed everything the CGT has to offer. Take the top out, take it for a run down Saddle road a few times, and then sprint down to the beach for a nice surf. Yeah, that sounds like a great way to spend a day or a week or a lifetime. In 2006, the CGT was shipped off to a new owner in Japan, where it has remained sine then.
Recently this Carrera GT underwent a proper service, with a positive clutch reading of 29.65-millimeters, as it should, having recorded only 3,550 original miles; receipts for this service are on file. It also comes with a collection of original manuals and brochures, including the owner’s manual and the original service booklet, as well as the center-lock tool and lumbar support pieces for the seats.

Gooding & Co.
Still riding high on the results of their Seinfeld auction earlier this year, Gooding has brought an exciting assortment to Northern California as well. I didn’t think a 997 GT2 would hit the collector market this quickly, but they have one, as well as a gorgeous 997 Speedster. The Rothmans SC/RS is really, really cool, but when its in the same auction as an ex-Paul Newman 935 with winning history, it’s overshadowed. Toss in a couple four-cam cars, a 959, and a stupidly rare 2.7 RS Homologation.
Lot 038 – 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7L RS Homologation (Est. $1,300,000 – 1,500,000)
Following the success of the 917 in the early 1970s, Porsche shifted their focus on GT class racing, and worked to develop the Carrera RS that has since become an icon of Porsche history. As a proof of concept for FIA inclusion in Group 4 classification, Porsche built 17 fully-decked racing versions of the Rennsport Carrera, which have since been dubbed “Carrera RSH” with H equalling ‘Homologation’. The RSH was even more hardcore than the M471 lightweight package cars, losing a further 30 kilos of weight This car happens to be one of those 17. This is the only one of the 17 delivered in Signal Orange, as it arrived at the Glöckler dealership in Frankfurt.
Perhaps the most important to collectors, this car comes with a full detailed report from Porsche and RS expert Jürgen Barth. Mr. Barth was working with Porsche and was involved in the homologation process in-period. Documentation is also provided by Jean Pierre Cornu, a classic car historian, including every piece of research he found regarding 1429’s history. According to Barth’s report, 1429 retains the original chassis number tag, type plate, engine (no. 6631397), stamped production number (103 7964), and gearbox (no. 7831393).
Lot 042 – 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder (Est. $5,000,000 – 6,000,000)
Chassis: 550A-0145 Engine: P90127 (Non-original)
Here is another exciting entry in Gooding’s listings. This 550A Spyder is billed as a period-correct Spyder with extensive racing history, including a Le Mans podium and a handful of race victories to its credit. Picking up from the 550 Spyder’s success, the 550A introduced a number of updates and changes to the specification, including a new space frame, a new rear suspension design, and moved the spare wheel to the front of the car for improved weight distribution. The changes led to legendary driver Ken Miles to call the 550A “the greatest long-distance racer in the world”.
The car’s full provenance is shown below, but the most significant pieces of its competition history include a class win at the 1000 Km Nürburgring, and class win at the 12 Hours of Reims, and a class podium and 5th overall finish at the 1958 24 Hours of Le Mans. This was Porsche’s highest finish for the mid-engine family of racers at Circuit de la Sarthe. With a long history of racing, run through the early 1960s, the car took nine major victories. A decent record for any racing chassis, let alone one in the 50s and 60s, when attrition was king.
The car was initially purchased from Porsche by Count Carel Godin de Beaufort of the Netherlands, a proper racer in his own right. Following his time with the car, he sold the 550 to a dealership in 1960 in Toronto, Canada. Jim Muzzin purchased the car and continued campaigning it through 1962, eventually selling the car on to a collector in California in 1967. The car then bounced through a few owners in California, until it was brought back to Germany in the early 1990s, then Italy in 2002.
In 2013, the current owner contracted noted Porsche historian Andy Prill to inspect the 550A for the intent of its purchase. Mr. Prill’s report, which accompanies the lot sale, provides detailed analysis of the Spyder and its history. Prill states that he feels this 550A is among the top 3 in the world. Perhaps most importantly, while the engine in the car is non-original (a spare case appears to have been used and stamped with a modified version of the original case number) it was fully rebuilt in 2012 and had been used little since.
This car would surely be welcome at any car show or vintage racing event, including Le Mans Classic or even the Monterey Motorsport Reunion happening the same weekend. Coming with such high regard from Andy Prill and Jürgen Barth means that this 550A is the real deal. If you’re looking for a blue-chip collectible Porsche with real Le Mans history, this could be your answer.

Lot 057 – 1956 Porsche 356A 1500 GS Carrera Dean Jeffries Custom Coupe (Est. $550,000 – 750,000)
Without wanting to sound biased, this is hands down my favorite Porsche being sold in the Monterey auctions this year. This might look a little strange to some Porsche enthusiasts, but it’s a modified and customized Carrera Coupe. You might think that it would be insane to modify a Carrera Coupe these days, and you’d probably be right, but this car was modified in-period, back when this was just another used car with a fiddly engine. Today, though, this is a one-of-a-kind Porsche, and something like that is getting harder and harder to find. If you want a Porsche that nobody else has, this might be the one for you.
Dean Jeffries, for those who don’t know, is a 1950s and 60s custom hot-rod builder in the same vein as George Barris, which is fitting, because Jeffries used to work for Barris. Among his accomplishments in the rod and custom world, Jeffries built the Monkeemobile and the “Black Beauty” from television’s The Green Hornet. He was also a master painter and hand lettering specialist, perhaps best known as the painter of James Dean’s ‘lil Bastard. This car, it could be argued, is the one that launched his career in customizing.
In the late 1950s, Jeffries owned a mildly modified 356A coupe, and with some smooth talking he managed to trade his A for this Carrera. Dean immediately set about frenching in the headlights and taillights. A pair of Merc 300SL-style rear cabin vents were added by Bill Hines, and the interior was finished off by Eddie Martinez. There are many surfaces, including the ends of the doors, which were customized with an engine-turned finish. Jeffries initially gave the car a coat of pearlescent silver, and decided later that he preferred pearl gold. While only in his ownership through the early 1960s, Dean had made his mark.
In 1962 Dean sold the car to Albert Nussbaum, who would later turn out to be a notorious bank robber, a man ranked in the top ten most wanted by the FBI at the time. Nussbaum took the car to his sister’s house in Florida. After he was incarcerated, the Porsche remained in Florida for a few years, passing from owner to owner undocumented. At some point during its stay in Florida, the four-cammer was taken out and replaced with a standard flat four.
In 1971, Jack Walter, a 19-year old fan of Dean Jeffries’ work, purchased the Porsche. Mr. Walter has owned the car since then, and began comprehensively restoring it in 2008. In 2011, while the Porsche was still finalizing restoration, it was shown at the Pebble Beach Concours, where Jeffries was in attendance to see his creation again after many years. Dean broke down crying and pronounced the car to be ‘bitchin’.

Bonhams hasn’t quite thrown in the towel on the Porsche game as RM seems to have. That said, they haven’t quite cornered the market in the way Gooding has. They’ve got a racing car, a Carrera GT, a couple 356s (including a Carrera Speedster), and a scad of early 911s. Their headliner in the Porsche world, however, has to be the gorgeous and exceedingly rare 964 Turbo Flachbau. It would be super exciting on any other weekend, but when Gooding has one at their sale as well, perhaps that rarity isn’t worth quite as much. Gooding has 5, maybe 6 Porsches capable of selling into the millions. Bonhams, meanwhile, has two. Both of which will barely crest 7-figures, if they do at all. The 356 market has been soft this year, so getting that Speedster over the million mark will take a lot of work by Bonhams’ auctioneer team.
Lot 39 – 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.0L (Est. $375,000 – 525,000)
We’ve attended the Monterey Motorsport Reunion for a few years now, and every year we see this car running. It seems like a good enough car, and already has a history of getting invitations to the event. Surely if you can get an invitation to the Reunion, you can get an invite to almost any other vintage race in the world. That alone has value to some buyers. Plus it’s presented in a beer livery, and it doesn’t get much cooler than that.
This 3 liter RS was originally purchased by a German gentleman driver who was upgrading from a Carrera RS 2.7 that had lunched its engine. It was originally painted in Grun Gelb with gold Carrera stripes and wheel centers. After purchase at Max Moritz Sportwagen, the car was road registered and entered at many races throughout the European continent. For 1976, the car’s owner joined a team of three cars, all painted white with Dinkel Acker sponsorship. Halfway through 1977, the car was shipped back to Stuttgart to be fitted with a 911 RSR twin-spark engine. After 1977 ended, the car was sold off to Luxembourg, where it suffered fire damage and was thrown unceremoniously into storage as-is.
From 77 until 2003, the car stayed in storage and wasn’t given a second thought. It was then that the car resurfaced in Germany and was partially restored to ape a stock Carrera, painted white with blue Carrera stripes and wheel centers. The Carrera was then sold to France where the owner decided to return the car to its Dinkel sponsorship livery, presented as it ran in 1976 at Zolder in Belgium. After a few years of presenting the car as it was, the owner undertook a full restoration in 2012 to return the car to its current race-ready condition.
As the original engine was missing, it was replaced by a dual-ignition 3.0-liter based on a 930 crankcase that retains the visual authenticity of the original powerplant. The present owner has used the car extensively on different tracks around Europe and in America, recently competing in various notable vintage races at Laguna Seca and Daytona. Legendary driver Gijs van Lennep co-drove this car at the Classic 24 at Daytona earlier this year and remarked in an article Panorama magazine that he liked driving it because “…it requires a lot of technique.” He also observed, “The 3.0-liter engine is strong, with good torque for exit speeds.”
Lot 70 – 1994 Porsche 911 (964) Turbo 3.6L Flachbau (No Estimate Provided)
Porsche’s Sonderwunschprogramm built the car shown here, finishing the build on November 30th of 1993. The original owner, Michael Green, took delivery at the end of January, 1994. This was possibly one of the most expensive Porsches available at the time, as it was kitted out with nearly every option on the list. Cashmere and black leather interior, an electric sliding sunroof, heated and eight-way adjustable driver and passenger seats in supple leather, electrically-adjustable and heat outside mirrors, velour floor mats, a remote six-disc CD changer with an 80-watt amplifier and eight speakers, central locking and integral alarm system, 18-inch polished alloy wheels with painted center caps, Yokohama tires, and most importantly, the Turbo ‘S’ Flachbau option (a $60,000 add on alone).
In 2011, Porsche was celebrating the 25th anniversary of their Sunderwunsch program, and contacted Mr. Green to ask if he might be interested in displaying his car at the Porsche museum along with another 10 special wishes cars. That Porsche trusted the condition of this car enough to show it in their own museum for two months is perhaps the most telling thing of all. Because the car was allowed in Porsche’s display, they manufactured for Mr. Green a pair of carbon fiber door sill covers displaying “25 Years Porsche Exclusive” on them, as well as a special key fob from the last piece of cashmere leather used in his car’s build process.
This extremely rare 964 Turbo ‘S’ Flat-nose is supplied with its original and unused jack, tool kit, and spare keys, as well as all factory and dealer paperwork including its window sticker and manuals, Certificate of Authenticity, a file of letters and photographs documenting its inclusion at the Porsche Museum Exclusive display, that special leather key fob, and a very rare detailed item-by-item price list for every single piece required to fabricate a Flat-nose conversion on the 964 Turbo ‘S’. The serious Porsche collector will find no better Turbo ‘S’ Flachbau than this barely-used but well-traveled and much-admired example.

Mecum has a wide array of interesting Porsche lots this year at their Monterey sale. Where other auctions are happy to accept 10 or 15 good lots, Mecum has a whopping 84 Porsches on sale this year, some of them far better than others. Everything from a gorgeously prepared 914-6 to a 959 to a pair of 962s to a handful of heavily modified cars and replicas will be presented at their auction block. If you love Porsches, chances are there will be something in their tent that you’ll want to bid on.
Lot T169 – 1976 Porsche 911 Turbocharged 3.4L Bisimoto (No Estimate Provided)
Thursday is mostly droll and uninteresting with consigned lots that don’t show much promise. However, there is one lot that really catches the eye. Bisimoto has built a crazy modified Porsche, and now it is for sale. The Bisimoto 911 was built with a 76 911 as the base, then a 6-speed transmission and 3.4 liter from a 996 were installed with a pair of giant turbochargers wedged into the rear. The builders claim that the car is capable of four-digit horsepower, but they restrained themselves by keeping power down in the 850 horsepower range. Considering the car is only just over 2000 pounds, that seems to be plenty for anyone’s tastes. The listing for the car doesn’t really explain anything about this car, and many in attendance will likely not know anything about it. This could be a really crazy good deal for someone. It’s certainly an oddball.

My selection of the lots from Mecum’s sale for Friday would be this wonderfully presented 914-6. It has allegedly undergone a recent ‘intensive restoration’. The engine and transmission are original to the car, and have been rebuilt. The body was taken down to bare metal and resprayed in its original Tangerine. The interior was similarly given a fresh factory black leatherette treatment. Even the Fuchs wheels are date-coded correct, and are fitted with a set of proper Michelin ZXZ tires. The lot also comes with the factory-issued Certificate of Authenticity, owner’s manual, jack, tool roll and spare tire.

Lot S124 – 1989 Porsche 962-108 (Est. $1,800,000 – 2,500,000)
Saturday is the real-deal day, and there are quite a few lots worth checking out (a 959, a pair of 962s, a 993 GT2 Evo, a couple Brumos specials, and a 930 Slant Nose Cabriolet), but my personal favorite is this beautiful Busby Racing campaigned Porsche 962. This car won the 1989 Daytona 24 hour race, and was widely known as one of the fastest 962s in-period. This car has been driven by Jim Busby, Rick Knoop, Mauro Baldi, Bob Wollek, Derek Bell, Jochen Mass, John Andretti, Brian Redman and Daron Brassfield, and features one of the most iconic liveries of the late 1990s. Trust me, you want this car.
I suggest reading more about the car’s history on Mecum’s site.

Russo and Steele
Russo and Steele are banking heavily on continued interest in 930s, as they’ve got four of them consigned. Last year 911 Turbos didn’t prove to be super movers in real life across the auction block. There is a pair of so-called “Art Cars” that match each other. Perhaps you need his-and-hers? There really isn’t all that much for Porsche nuts at R&S at this auction, but if there is a particular car that catches your fancy, you might find a deal here.
Lot 7078 – 1971 Porsche 911T 2.4L “Survivor”
Probably the best Porsche that Russo is selling, this all-original paint survivor long-wheelbase long-hood car is pretty darn cool. This 911T is relatively low spec with no fog lights, but it’s still fitted with S trim package, and looks mighty fine with that metallic gold color painted on its flanks. I have literally seen thousands of 911s in my lifetime, and I’ve never seen one painted in metallic gold, so this is a really cool opportunity, in my opinion. Factory options listed on the CoA include antenna with loudspeaker, noise suppression, comfort equipment, tinted glass all around, and light alloy 14-inch wheels (meaning the 15″ steel wheels are non-factory). The car retains its original numbers-matching motor and comes with the original window sticker, books, service maintenance books and stamps, tools, and Porsche COA.
