Single-owner Porsche Carrera collection offered in new RM Sotheby’s sale

International auction house, RM Sotheby’s, has announced The Carrera Collection, an astonishing sale of Porsches, including various special and limited-production air-cooled 911s, as well as various 356s and a variety of models from other premium marques, including Alfa Romeo, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Alpina and Chevrolet.

This remarkable ‘no reserve’ collection further underlines RM Sotheby’s reputation as the leading auction house for selling single-owner collections and estate sales and comes hot on the heels of The Bavarian Legends Collection, which sold successfully in Munich back in November. The Carrera Collection features an eye-popping array of nearly ninety cars, the majority being fine Porsches. A 1959 356 A Carrera 1600 GT coupe represents a stunning example of one of the marque’s most significant early models, while other highlights include a Porsche 356B 2000 GS Carrera 2 Coupe, a Porsche 911 GT2 Evo 993 race car and not one, but two Carrera RS 2.7s. Another of the sale’s interesting and desirable 911s, and one bound to appeal to collectors looking for their next rare Porsche, is the included 1997 993 Turbo S (pictured below), which served as a factory prototype.


“We are delighted RM Sotheby’s has been entrusted to sell this astonishing single-owner collection,” says the auction house’s classic car specialist, Felix Archer. “The breadth of Porsche models on offer presents a huge opportunity for fans of the marque, while the entire sale contains some truly rare and desirable models from a variety of manufacturers.” The Carrera Collection will be offered across two sales, one in Switzerland and the other in Italy. Specific details will follow, but for now, we can reveal the auctions are scheduled to take place in July.

The common thread uniting cars included in The Carrera Collection is impressive diversity. In addition to the sale’s early 356s and hugely desirable 911s, for instance, is a fleet of 928s, all impeccable examples representing the best of each generation of Porsche’s legendary V8- powered ‘land shark’. We’ll bring you further news as soon as specific details relating to individual lots are announced. In the meantime, we encourage you to register for an RM Sotheby’s account ( to keep abreast of updates and to register for bidding.

As if this wasn’t enough exciting auction news, Broad Arrow (a Hagerty company) has been appointed to host the Porsche Seventy-fifth Anniversary auction at Porsche Experience Center Atlanta across the weekend of June 8th-10th. This single-marque sale will present seventy-five (of course!) carefully curated classic and collectible Porsches.

Every Porsche anniversary is worth celebrating, but seventy-five years of manufacturing and motorsport is especially noteworthy. Leading early consignments for the sale is the no.001/001 911 Classic Club Coupe, a unique Porsche Classic project created in collaboration with Porsche Club of America (PCA). Based on a 996-generation Carrera and enhanced through Porsche’s Sonderwunsch (Special Wishes) programme, the car’s one-of-a-kind modifications take inspiration from the 997 Sport Classic, a limited-edition model not approved for export to the USA. The Classic Club Coupe features the complete drivetrain from a second-gen 996 GT3 and will be offered without reserve.

Interested collectors are invited to contact a Broad Arrow specialist via, where further information will be released.
