The Gooding & Co auction in Monterey : the results

Multi -million dollar Porsches

Just as we expected, Gooding & Co knew to attract the collectors with deep wallets to their Monterey Auction. On the 1st day of the auction, there were no less than 3 cars that hit the million dollar mark. The cheapest of those 3 cars was the Porsche 918 Weisscach Spyder with a final price, premium included of $1.650.000. The day before a very similar car sold at the Bonhams auction for a quarter of a million less. The 2007 Porsche RS Spyder found a new home for $4.510.000. We did expect a very high price for the 2007 Porsche RS Spyder. However, we must admit we didn’t expect this. But with cars like this, its always hard to give an estimation, as there’s hardly no reference. And you never know wether collectors want to enrich their collection with race cars like this.  The 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder (550-0053) , delivered by John von Neumann, will be treated in a new collection after being hammered at a slightly higher price than the 2007 Porsche RS Spyder. The new caretaker will have to dig a solid  $4.455.000 out of his wallet.

The pristine 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder, with only 92 miles on the counter from new, found a new home for just over the lower estimates. However, $1.650.000 is still a good price for Porsche’s recent supercar. Just a day earlier, at the Bonhams Quail Lodge auction, a simular car with just over 7000 miles on the counter, sold for a quarter of a million dollars less

Many eyes were ofcourse directed towards a car that has been bespoken a lot before the auctions. John von Neumann believed that the efforts by the Porsche factory for building an open-air version of the Porsche 911 would not fullfill the needs of the American Porsche clients. Therefore John von Neumann contacted Italian car designer Nuccio Bertone and shipped him a bare chassis, provided by the Porsche factory. The results is a one-off Porsche 911 Spyder that never went into production, due to a lack of order., even though it was presented at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show, close to the Porsche factory’s own version of an open Porsche 911 : the Porsche 911 Targa.  The one-off 1966 Porsche 911 Spyder by Bertone sold for $1.430.000
