Porsche presence increases for Pebble Beach

Porsche presence increases for Pebble Beach Classic and Performance Car

Three Works Porsche racing cars have been added to a growing list of Porsches set for Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auctions.

An Porsche RS60, Porsche 904 Carrera GTS and Porsche 906E are all set to feature at Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auction next month, it has been confirmed.

The three ex-works cars will go under the hammer in California, with the RS60 headlining a nine-car collection set to feature on August 12.

The collection comprises of five Porsches, with the 1960 RS60 being joined by a rare Viper Green 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.8 RSR ($900,000 - $1,100,000), an 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR complete with matching transporter ($700,000 - $900,000), a 973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight (estimate: $900,000 - $1,100,000), and an 2000 Porsche 996 GT3R, which won its class at the 12 Hours of Sebring ($400,000 - $600,000).

Outside of the Texas-based collection, a recently restored 1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS is set to star, with an estimated sale price of $2,250,000 - $2,750,000. The 904 was the first plastic Porsche to be produced, and enjoyed success at Le Mans, the Targa Florio, and on the Monte Carlo Rally.

The third Porsche, a 1967 Porsche 906E, was built for the 1967 racing season. It finished 4th in class at the 12 Hours of Sebring, before being sold to a race team owner and being championed in historic race series throughout the Western US.

'These cars are sure to excite even the most discerning collectors and enthusiasts who will be attending this year’s Pebble Beach Auction. Without a doubt, this is the finest group of Porsche factory racing cars ever presented at auction' said Gooding & Company President, David Gooding.

Other members of the nine-car collection heading for Pebble Beach include an incredibly rare 2004 Masarati MC12 GT1 ($2,000,000 - $2,500,000), an 1998 Ferrari 333 SP as raced by the Auto Sport Racing Team ( $2,000,000 - $2,400,000), a dark blue 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Coupe ($750,000 - $850,000), and one of only 100 Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM AMG Coupe’s ever built ($400,000 - $600,000).
