The current owner, a well-known collector of German-made cars, restored the sports car and refreshed its appearance a bit.

In addition, among the lots of the auction there is a participant in the “24 hours of Le Mans” Porsche 962C. The sport prototype was built by the private team Kremer Racing, where its aluminum tubular frame was replaced with a composite one, and painted in the colors of the legendary Leyton House. For the car they want to gain 1-1.25 million dollars

The third car is a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight. The circulation of the sports car, which was 100–200 kilograms lighter than the usual Carrera, was 200 copies. The specimen put up for sale underwent a thorough restoration procedure and was tentatively estimated at 1-1.2 million dollars.

One of the last “Porsche”, which went under the hammer, was the unique “golden” restomod 911 (993) Turbo S, built in a single copy. Bought the car in just 10 minutes. The cost is 2 743 500 euros. Prior to that, a 24-year-old Porsche 911 without a run was bought at auction for 2 million euros.
