Charity Auction Features Porsche 911

By Staff Writer April 13, 2020

Porsche Cars North America Inc. and RM Sotheby’s will host a unique charitable auction for Porsche enthusiasts. With proceeds, excluding taxes and fees, being donated to United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 fund, the auction’s sole lot will be the last-ever generation 911 to pass down the serial production line at the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen factory. The one-week auction in the U.S. will be held via RM Sotheby’s Online Only auction platform to adhere to social distancing guidelines without delaying the charitable fundraiser.

The auction vehicle is a unique 911 Speedster, one of 1,948 examples, created to mark 70 years of Porsche sports cars.

The winning bidder and a guest will be invited to take a personal, behind-the-scenes tour of the Porsche AG Weissach development headquarters – including experiencing the test track – with Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser and Andreas Preuninger, heads of the 911 and GT model lines respectively. Finished in GT Silver Metallic paint, the 911 Speedster remains unregistered, having covered just 20 delivery miles. It’s powered by a 4.0-liter, naturally aspirated flat six engine developing 502 hp, connected to a six-speed manual gearbox.

United Way Worldwide will be the beneficiary of the auction, with funds being donated to its COVID-19 Fund in the U.S. The auction will open for bidding on RM Sotheby’s Online Only platform at 11 am EDT on April 15, closing at 1 pm EDT on April 22. The 911 Speedster is offered without reserve, selling to the highest bidder.
