In celebration of Porsche's 70th anniversary, the German marque has teamed with famed auction house (and FLATSIXES.com sponsor) RM Sotheby's for a special auction this October at their Atlanta headquarters. Approximately 70 historically significant Porsches will be sold, with representatives from each of Porsche's seven decades on hand. While we don't have any indication of exactly which cars will be on offer yet, there's still plenty of time to get your travel plans and bidder paddles in order. Whether you're looking to add to your already extensive Porsche collection, or you simply want one exquisite Porsche showpiece, this will be the auction for you. So long as it doesn't rain, Atlanta in October is a great place to be, and here's one more good reason to travel there.
Quotes from PCNA and RM:
Andre Oosthuizen, Vice-President of Marketing for Porsche Cars North America:
“We are excited to open our doors to RM Sotheby’s exclusive Porsche only sale this coming October. Even before the full concept of our first Porsche Experience Center in North America saw the light of day, we realized the tremendous opportunities a facility like this would attract. In fact, in the three short years since our Grand Opening, we’ve hosted multiple major movie productions, have seen 115,000 enthusiasts come through our doors, opened the Porsche Classic Center, and created rotating displays in our Heritage Gallery. Our Porsche Experience Centers are a natural location for a classic automotive auction of this magnitude and we look forward to working closely with RM Sotheby's to ensure they, and their guests have a successful weekend at our home in Atlanta.”
Kenneth Ahn, President of RM Sotheby’s:
“RM Sotheby’s entire global team is thrilled to be working with Porsche to present the Porsche 70th Anniversary Sale. We’ve witnessed record-setting results and incredible atmosphere at several manufacturer-supported single-marque sales over the last decade, and we look forward to offering our clients an unparalleled auction experience in Atlanta this fall. The Porsche Experience Center demonstrates the incredible lifestyle that Porsche ownership affords and celebrates the ultimate enjoyment of any of their models—driving them. Spectacularly designed with attention-to-detail paid in every regard, from the upholstered seats in Restaurant 356 to the precision of the track, Porsche DNA is visible in every square inch of the place. We look forward to collaborating with Porsche to deliver an unforgettable experience for Porsche collectors and enthusiasts in celebrating the brand’s 70th Anniversary.”
