About a a week ago, I mentioned the 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 that was heading to auction with only 6 miles on the clock. The car finally crossed the auction block and it sold for a mind-blowing £1.7 million - the most amount ever paid for a 964 RSR.
The 964-series Porsche 911 Carrera RSR is already an exceptionally rare and desirable classic, but this particular car takes that to a different league.
Just 51 RSRs were built, but not many will be in such incredible condition. This particular model was ordered in 1993 and after being delivered was placed into a private collection where it sat for 25 years not being driven once.
A 1993 Porsche 964 Carrera RSR was undoubtedly the shining star of the recent RM Sotheby’s auction, despite actually being the least shiny thing there.
I think the saddest thing that could happen to this fantastic car would be for the new buyer to put it in storage for another two and a half decades in hopes of turning an even bigger profit. I hope it gets tuned up and driven balls out at the race track.
