    a very special collection

    I had a glimpse  at a very special car collection today . 

    The owner is getting rid of them and they will bet auctioned in Florida, Paris and London .  Quite a few of the cars are very , very low milage , under 100 km .  In total they are 23 cars for sale . I just shop a few .... and probably not even the most special ones Smiley  But check out the 959 S  ( only 21 produced )  and it has a special inside . The 944 is a rare Carrera GT .  The RS has 87 km on the clock . 

    Only the yellow Carrera GT and grey 918 are not for sale . Those belong to my famous neighbor  .... I will post his 2 nd R in the other thread .

    AN EXCEPTIONAL PORSCHE COLLECTION
    PARIS 8 FEBRUARY

    A collection of Porsches from an exceptional Swiss stable will highlight our 8 February auction in Paris. The 13 ‘no-reserve’ automobiles will be led by none other than the 959 Sport, one of just 29 of its kind. It retains its original factory fitted seats with racing-style harnesses, rear seat delete, leather-wrapped roll bar and upgraded suspension, all 959 Sport-specific upgrades. Also part of the line-up is the 1994 911 Turbo S 3.6Porsche Exlusiv produced the special Turbo 3.6 S and sold it to their most important clients. Most were specified with the slant-nose ‘Flachbau’ option, with just 17 specifying the traditional-look 'Package' body, this example included.
     
    RM Sotheby’s car specialist Oliver Camelin has worked closely with the cars and knows them better than most. He had this to say about the collection: "It is a privilege to have been entrusted with such a special group of cars. The Porsche market has seen tremendous activity of late, with a strong appetite for quality and modern classics - as demonstrated by our London and Duemila Ruote sales last year. It is a very rare and exciting occasion for so many unique and exceptional Porsches to be offered ‘without reserve’, and we expect the collection will capture the attention of the market."

    No idea why it was US spec .  

    The other R I saw ( with red rims on one side and blue rims on the other )  , which I was not allowed to photographe for the moment , was also a US spec . It does not belong to the same person though

    The ones will little milage are the less special ones . 996 GT3 RS , 996 GT3  etc... The 959 S , the Carrera GT have been driven quite a bit

    Re: a very special collection

    Seems a bit of a shame to break up such a wonderful collection. I mean don't get me wrong i think it's great that they will make other people happy and get driven more, but its so strange seeing someone spend decades consolidating such a stable and then in one (proverbial) fall of the hammer get rid of so many jewels all together.  


    Re: a very special collection

    Owner selling due to health/age etc, or because we may be at "peak Porsche" for valuations?

    a little bird told me that he actually already regrets his decision .....  I don't know why he decided in the first place to sell those .  He' s got plenty others anyway. 

    A good time to sell ? Too many cars ?

    I also love the 928, it looks like the last update from the early 90s, if I had the financial means to own such a Porsche cars collection I would definitely own one.

    This 959 S with all the gizmos and dual shock absorbers per wheel weighs 1,350 kg, yet Porsche couldn't deliver a 911 R that could weigh under 1,300 kg in 2wd form without  turbochargers and intercooler piping angry

    Stunning collection. My top 3 I would die to grab as follows: 

    1. 959 S

    2. 964 Turbo S 

    3. 924 Carrera GT

    To be honest, I haven't weighed my 959S but I'd say it's closer to 1500 kg than 1350 kg. And that's fine, considering the power and it's delivery 1500 kg is not too bad.
