Remember back to March of this year, and you may recall a certain beautiful Porsche 959S going up for sale at the Gooding & Co. Amelia Island auction. Because of the undying genius and unstoppable hard work of our friends at Sloan Cars, the car was properly advertised, properly prepared, and brought top-dollar at auction. From start to finish, the Velocity Channel's Chasing Classic Cars television program, along with host Wayne Carini, documented the car's sale weekend. The program will be shown on Velocity this Monday evening at 9PM Eastern.
If you've ever wanted a behind-the-scenes look at an exciting high-stakes auction weekend, what goes into preparing a 7-figure car to cross the auction block, or just want to get to know this special 959S a little better, now is your opportunity. The guard's red brute's sale remains a high watermark for 959 sales, and certainly the first one we've seen sell for over one million dollars. Was it worth the cash? Was it worth more? You be the judge. Either way, it should be a great show about a great car.
