Amelia Island 2018 Recap

    CBA Recaps Amelia 2018 How Did We Do? Our Take on the Results!   Big Results – Lessons Learned? It's Amelia 2018 and some serious Porsche hardware was on offer. But it was lukewarm in Florida. For several reasons not all related to the cars themselves. First off the weather. Most impactful was that RM moved its auction up to Friday afternoon due to weather concerns related to the concours event. This certainly threw things off for them. And in general northern East Coast weather may have kept some from traveling. Generally many felt that attendance was moderate, maybe even thin compared to previous Amelia attendances. Buyer enthusiasm in general was also felt to be off. Maybe buyers are saturated. So many cars traded in 2015/16 and many buckets are full. So buyer fatigue may be at play. Finally, with that in…

Amelia Island 2018 Auction Preview

    CBA Previews Amelia 2018 Rare 1990’s Porsche Cornucopia Questions to be Answered!   Is Amelia the #1 U.S. Auction for Porsches? It’s Amelia 2018 and some serious Porsche hardware is on offer, making this the most in depth sale of rare 1990’s air cooled’s in a single auction weekend for many years – and perhaps establishing Amelia as the most important auction of the year for collectible 1990’s Porsches. Maybe more so than Pebble Beach. This auction feels a lot like RM London 2016 or RM Paris 2017 when financial markets were strong and it was obvious that the rarest cars were not going down in price. Amelia 2018 promises to answer some serious questions. Are rare air cooled Porsche prices on the rise or stagnant? Will the strongest euro to dollar rate in three years push dollar bids up – and…

Barrett Jackson 2017

    Barrett Jackson Auction Results   October Las Vegas is not the typical venue for Porsche auctions but there were noteworthy results for the North American Millennial market. 2008 997 GT2 – GT Silver Metallic – 14,500 miles – 5 Owner – $222,000 all in. Very good money for a car with this history and mileage. View this vehicle at PORS9. 2011 Speedster – White – 1,523 miles – 2 Owner – $250,000 reserve not met. The owner should have taken the money. These cars were $225,000 at their peak and the market has fallen quite a bit since then. See this vehicle at PORS9. 2015 918 Spyder Base – PTS VooDoo Blue w/ Martini livery – 1,300 miles – 2 Owner – $1,760,000 all in – reserve pulled to sell the car. This car was on offer for $2.4m when it sat…

Message From Paris 2017

  Message From Paris 2017 – They Aren’t Making Them Anymore   The message from Paris 2017 appears clear! Rare 1990’s Air Cooled Porsches are now firmly established as such and unless there is a global economic meltdown prices will not be going down – simply put the market is clearing without the need for lower prices. The financial bull market started in March 2009 and it took a few years from then for Porsches to start their own rise to new highs. Now several years later, with the financial markets showing no signs of slowing, the Paris auction tells us that the established true collectibles – the rare, low production and unique models – are being scooped up by a widening number of buyers with the wealth to compete for the very few cars that come to market – and as a result…

RM London 2016

  RM London Auction Results 2016   Well it was an interesting result in London – was this the top? One of our clients purchased all three of the truly rare air cooled Porsche’s on offer which were part of the eight car Stuttgart collection being liquidated at the auction. While our evaluation of the purchase results are mixed (see below) the price paid for the Riviera Blue 993 GT2 Strassenversion was certainly a record that will stand for some time – particularly as the market softens, in our opinion even for the best examples. 964 RS 3.8 – purchased at what could be considered at or below fair market – 16.6k KM – one owner – not 100% original paint – sale price before commission £640,000/€768,000/$857,600 964 Turbo S Leichtbau – purchased at what could be considered below fair market – 6.3k KM…

Excellence April 2018

  PORS9 Founder Mark Smith in Excellence April 2018 Issue ‘X Marks the Spot’   Porsche Archivist and Historian Talks About a Very Rare Porsche PORS9 founder and noted Porsche archivist and historian Mark Smith shares his knowledge in the Excellence Magazine April 2018 article ‘X Marks the Spot’ which reviews the 1994 Turbo S Flatnose model X83 from Japan. With only ten built it is one of the rarest production Porsches ever built. Smith, the founder of PORS9, is the author of the rareporsche.com websites. He began his investigative and archival journey with rare 1990’s Porsches when he bought the car that started it all – 1994 Turbo S Flachbau X85 #480463 – one of only 39 X85’s built. Smith acquired the car from its original owner in 2000 when few knew that this car even existed. As it turned out, as Smith would…

PORS9 Scottsdale 2018 Recap

  PORS9 Scottsdale 2018 Recap   Sign up for the PORS9 Email List – Never Miss Another Update!   Scottsdale 2018 Recap Gooding Lot 11 – 2004 Carrera GT – GT Silver Metallic /Ascot- 2,900 miles – 2 owner – estimate $650k – $850k. Hammer Price: $650,000 What we said: We think this is could be a $650k car (even though its a 2004, but that’s another discussion)… it’s not an $850k  car. See this vehicle’s details at this link. Our take: Seems like Carrera GT prices have settled. Miles, condition, color and all the usual stuff considered these cars are $550k – $700k which is not bad given where they started at the 2012 floor … in truth they never were $850k+ cars except for a few with no miles or PTS … and wont be until their next up cycle – which…
