The results of the Scottsdale auctions

1970 Porsche 914/6 GT - Chassis 914 043 1017

All hammerprices shown in the results list underneath are premium included.

Of the 3 major auction houses present at Scottsdale, Gooding & Company not only had the most Porsches. Overall, the results of the Scottsdale auctions did not surprise. The price for the highest hammerprice for a Porsche goes to Gooding & Company too. However,  the 1970 Porsche 914/6 GT,  described in more detail in our Gooding & Company auction preview, failed to reach the expected 7 figure range. We admit, they were pretty close. The hammer fell down at $995,000 premium included. Still, a whopping price for a Porsche 914, even though the car has some race history. And it would have been great to see a Porsche 914 reach the milestone of $1000,000. Last year, at the Artcurial auction in Paris, the Brutus Porsche 916, with the Porsche 914 looks, sold for $1,051,933. But technically, that’s a complete different car. 

1968 Porsche 912 Targa

The total number of Porsches being auction in Scottsdale by the different auction houses was fairly small. And the number of extraordinary or special cars, like race cars or extremely limited production cars, was small too. The majority of the cars were rather common Porsches. That probably declares the total number of unsold Porsches at the 3 auctions was rather low too. However, we are surprised cars like a 2011 Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0, the 1967 Porsche 911S, or the 1962 Porsche 356B 1600 Twin Grille Roadster remained unsold. 

It became clear again that we left the big hype for classic Porsches behind us. Sure,  potential buyers still want to pay a good price for an early Porsche 911 or its predecessor, the Porsche 356. On the other hand, the hammer fell down in general at a price under the lower estimate. Ofcourse you can link 2 conclusions to it.  The auction house set the estimation fork too steep. Or these cars fetch les attention than expected. In fact the only right conclusion one can draw, watching  auction results, is your own. So find out  the results of the Scottsdale auctions underneath, and don’t hesitate to drop us a line or give a comment on our Facebook or Twitter account. And ofcourse our focus now lies at the auctions in Paris in a few weeks.
