Project Gold auc­tions for £2.4 mil­lion

One-off 2018 993 Turbo sparks ten-minute bid­ding frenzy

At the RM Sotheby’s 70th An­niver­sary auc­tion in At­lanta, Porsche’s highly pub­li­cised

‘Project Gold’ 993 Turbo, built in 2018 by Zuf­fen­hausen’s Clas­sic depart­ment, was even­tu­ally sold for £2.4 mil­lion. The ham­mer fi­nally fell af­ter a to­tal of 37 bids in ten min­utes with the en­tire sum, mi­nus fees, go­ing to the not-for-profit Ferry Porsche Foun­da­tion.

Although it is not road le­gal and must be col­lected by trailer from the fac­tory at Zuf­fen­hausen, Project Gold was the un­doubted high­light of the spe­cial Porscheonly auc­tion, with many lots fail­ing to in­spire the as­sem­bled au­di­ence at Porsche North Amer­ica’s Ex­pe­ri­ence Center. The over­all dis­ap­point­ing re­sults, show­ing a slide in 918 Spy­der, 997 GT2 RS and 997 GT3 RS 4.0 de­sir­abil­ity, con­tin­ues the trend of the col­lec­tor mar­ket­place be­ing a dif­fi­cult and un­pre­dictable arena presently.
