Ira Porsche was excited to hear that the amazing Drendel Family Porsche collection (which consists of eighteen classic Porsche models), would be among the iconic Porsche models up for bid at this year's Gooding & Company's Amelia Island auction, but we were amazed when we heard that the auction smashed eleven world records for Porsche vehicles.
Gooding & Company is known for selling the world's most valuable and unique collector cars. This year, 70 out of 77 of its luxury collector vehicles were sold to the public, garnering more than $36 million in sales. The most expensive vehicle sold was a 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder that sold for $4.4 million. This sporty coupe is now the most valuable Porsche ever sold at an auction worldwide.
David Gooding, President and Founder of the auction explains his excitement surrounding the event, stating, "We are extremely pleased with our $36 million auction results, as it underscores the continued strength at the top of the collector car market. I'm proud of our team, delighted for our clients and I believe we managed to raise the bar this weekend on many levels."1
Today's Porsche models, like the 2012 Porsche Panamera and the 2012 Porsche 911 are sure to become iconic collector's items as well, so if you're interested in the long-term value of your vehicle, be sure to stop by Ira Porsche, located at 97C Andover Street Danvers, MA 01923, to test drive a car you'll be happy with for years to come.
