RM Sotheby’s Auction Scottsdale : the results

What learns looking at the results of the last RM Sotheby’s Auction in Scottsdale us ? First of all, it is obvious that the extremely rare cars were not in the market to be auctioned. Yes some pretty good and rare cars were being offered as we told before in our preview of the RM Sotheby auction. But we must be honest with ourselves and admit that there were no real jewels.  We’re not sure what is going on on the market, but it’s hard to deny that auctions are far less exciting than they used to be some years ago.

At the RM Sotheby’s auction most of the cars sold for a hammer price close to the lower estimates or even lower. Porsche 356 Speedsters were sold for a price from $245.000 to $423.000. The only cars that were hammered at a price remarkably more than the estimates were the 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic and the 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster. No surprise these are future collectibes. It seems those were the only cars that buyers were prepared to open their wallet for
