Porsche And RM Sotheby’s To Auction World’s Last 991-Gen 911 To Raise Money For Coronavirus Relief
Porsche and RM Sotheby’s will be holding a special online auction exclusively for the last-ever 991 generation 911 to raise money for the United Way Worldwide COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund.
The car is the last 911 Speedster ever produced within the 991 generation. It’s powered by a 4.0-liter, naturally aspirated flat six engine developing 502 hp. If you end up buying this amazing piece of automotive engineering, you will also receive a Porsche 911 Speedster Heritage Design Chronograph watch, a book documenting the production of the final 911 Speedster, and a private tour of the Porsche AG Weissach development headquarters — including the test track — with Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser and Andreas Preuninger, heads of the 911 and GT model lines respectively.
“We are all profoundly affected by the current situation and the immediate impact it’s having on those most at risk in our communities,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “United 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. I also appreciate the swift support of RM Sotheby’s to make this possible and I am hopeful that the sale of a very special Porsche will help in a small way.”
Walliser added: “Not only does this mark the end of what, for me, was a special era but it’s especially rewarding that the last car to reach the end of the line should be the ultimate – the Speedster combined everything we learned and is the 991 in its purest form. I hope this really unique car can make a big difference to those who need help right now – and that the fortunate buyer enjoys it and drives it as we always intended.”
