Looking to spend some extra cash, and experience some excitement, to while away the lockdown blues?
Well now, this could be some great news for you: A unique Porsche sports car is currently on offer via a single-lot online auction at RM Sothebyâ€™s, with proceeds being donated to a Covid-19 fund under United Way Worldwide, a non-profit organisation based in Virginia, U.S.A. with 1,800 global offices, and a mission to tackle health, education, and financial issues.
Bidding has already begun on RM Sothebyâ€™s online platform at 11 a.m. EDT on April 15, and this will be closing at 1 p.m. EDT on April 22. The highest bidder will become the owner of the car, along with a special package to accompany the deal.
The set of wheels in question is the last-ever 991 generation Porsche 911 sports car to come off the production line at the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen factory in Stuttgart, Germany at the tail end of December 2019. Incidentally, the car being offered is one of the 1,948 examples of 911 Speedsters created to mark the 70th anniversary of Porsche sports cars. It features GT silver metallic exteriors, and has only covered 20 delivery miles.
â€œWe are all profoundly affected by the current situation and the immediate impact itâ€™s having on those most at risk in our communities,â€ said Klaus Zellmer, president and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. â€œUnited Way continues to step up to the plate and their response to this crisis has been quite impressive. So, we are proud to do our part.â€
The car featured in the auction comes complete with a commemorative package that includes a Porsche 911 heritage chronograph wristwatch offered from Porsche Design; a personalised visit to the Porsche AG Weissach development headquarters with Frank-Steffen Walliser and Andreas Preuninger, who run the 911 and GT model lines respectively; a one-of-a-kind book illustrating the assembly and completion of the last 991; and a letter of authenticity from Porsche confirming the chassis number applied to this car is indeed the last of the 991 generation.
At the end of it all, do note that the package will be delivered to the successful bidder at a dedicated event in the U.S., hosted by Zellmer. Interested? Why not get in touch by exploring following link:
