The Last Porsche 911 Speedster Is Being Auctioned Off for Coronavirus Relief
The sale of this historic German supercar benefits a very worthy cause.
The final Porsche 911 from the previous 991 Series, which happens to be the ultra-exclusive 911 Speedster, is being auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s to benefit the battle against coronavirus. All proceeds will go to United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund.
This particular 911 Speedster, one of 1,948 examples manufactured to celebrate the German marque’s 70th anniversary, was the last of its kind to roll off the assembly line at the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen factory.
Finished in GT Silver Metallic paint and adorned with a limited-edition Heritage Design racing livery, the drop-top supercar’s 502-horsepower, 4.0-liter flat-six and six-speed manual gearbox have only been run for a 20-mile delivery.
Also included in the lot is a 911 Speedster Heritage Design Chronograph by Porsche Design, the storied automaker’s lifestyle division.
The flyback-enabled watch incorporates the vehicle’s historic design features, including a strap crafted from the exact same cognac leather used in the interior and a silver winding rotor that mirrors the car’s unique wheels. The limited-edition timepiece will also boast the currently undisclosed chassis number of the last Speedster with which it’s paired.
The auction opens for bidding on RM Sotheby’s Online Only platform from April 15 to April 22. Learn more at RM Sotheby’s website.
