2 x Porsche 911 Turbo Flat nose

In 1987 only 144 Porsche 911 Turbo Flat Nose were delivered to the USA. The design drew from the front end of the highly successful Porsche 935 racing car. The car resided in a collection its entire life and has only 25.000 miles on it. In 1988 just one more Porsche 911 Turbo Flat Nose was imported to the USA. The 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo Flat Nose that RM Sotheby’s offers in the auction is one of these. The car only has just under 23.500 miles on it. In a 200 hour taking restoration, the car was brought back to show specs.

Porsche 936 Junior

In 1981 Jacky Ickx and Derek Bell won the Le Mans 24H in a Porsche 936. To commemorate this victory, the Porsche factory commisioned a 1/2 scale replica of the 1981 Le Mans winning race car. The exact number of these Porsche 936 Junior children’s cars is unknown but it is believed to be somewhere between 50 and 100. Among Porsche race fans and collectors it is a highly sought after collectible. It definitely is a straight entry ticket for the Le Mans Classic children’s race. They don’t come up for sale often so better be alert this time.
