Preview : Gooding & Co Scottsdale Auction

Arizona is an ideal winter destination, and each January Scottsdale hosts a thriving automotive marketplace adjacent to the Fashion Square Mall and charming Old Town Scottsdale. Gooding & Company has brought a refined approach to this lively and well‑established event, offering stunning vehicles across marques and eras. This is a comprehensive list of all the Porsches that will come up for sale at the Gooding & Co Auction in Scottsdale.

Just as in the Bonhams auction and the RM Sotheby’s Auction in Scottsdale, you won’t find ultra-rare Porsche’s or race-cars in the Gooding & Co auction.  One could wonder why? Maybe there’s just no collector that wants to take distance from his race car. We, however, think that potential sellers are just not convinced their cars will get the right ( high) price.

Our personal favorite Porsche in the Gooding & Co auction is the 1959 Porsche 356 A Coupe.  The late T-2 Coupe was finished in Meissen Blue with Red leatherette upholstery. The car comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity that states that chassis  107183 was shipped to Hoffman Motor Car Company of New York. Little is know about the early history of the car. In the 2000s the car was subject to an extensive restoration. Under the current ownership, a comprehensive cosmetic and mechanical freshening were commissioned in late 2018, including a high-quality repaint.

If you like Meissen blue cars, there is another car in this color crossing the block in Scottsdale. The 1959 Porsche 356 Convertible D was delivered to Hoffmann Motor Car Company in New York too. It started life with silver skin and red Leatherette interior. The car has since been refinished in period-correct Meissen Blue over a Tan interior. The Porsche 356 Convertible D is a worthy replacer for those that are not that much into the Porsche 356 Speedster.

In 2016 Porsche introduced the Porsche 911R. The successor of the iconic 1967 Porsche 911R was a huge commercial success. The new model was sold out before it even hit the market. Soon Porsche 911R’s were sold for insane prices at auctions, some of them close to $1.000.000. Those days are long behind us. Nevertheless, the seller of this particular Porsche 911R ( Chassis WP0AF2A93GS195215 ) with less than 2400 miles on the counter will probably catch the estimate hammer-price of approx $350.000.
