Looking through the lots for the forthcoming Silverstone Auctions : The Porsche Sale on Saturday 15th October at Silverstone, my eye was drawn to these little Porkies..
1991 Porsche 911 964 RS – The lightweight track version of the already brilliant 964, all wrapped up in my favourite Porsche colour Amethyst. There are few comforts on the RS, wind-up windows, no rear wiper, no rear seats or power steering and this is a LHD version. But this IS the one to have and enjoy, the only problem is you won’t want to part with it. Estimated from £130,000
1991 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera RS NGT – Another super light-weight Carrera RS NGT variant, featuring a completely factory-stripped blank interior and roll cage, epitomises Porsche racing as the more radical version of the 964 Carrera RS. Lovely colour in Maritime Blue – only 290 examples were created.
The specification includes Nomex Recaro bucket seats, a welded roll cage, an Alcantara Momo steering wheel and 4-point harnesses, perfectly suited to the harder and more track focused design that make the car so popular for events like the Nurburgring 24Hrs. Estimated from £135,000 and £155,000.
1992 Porsche 911 (964) RS Touring Finished in Black with a black interior, the 911 RST features Sport leather seats with triple colour inlays, a top tinted windscreen and a sunroof, and is estimated at £185,000 – £210,000.
1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI owned by by David Pattison of PCT fame and previously (more importantly) owned by Nick Faure, a noted Porsche racer and factory driver of the day, the Porsche had covered just 59,960 miles from new when it changed hands, making Mr Pattison the car’s third owner. The original, duck-tailed, right-hand drive 2.7 Carrera MFI, one of only 1,011 examples made in 1974. Finished in its original factory colour of Light Yellow with black pinstripe cloth and leatherette upholstery, it will be offered for public sale for the first time in its life when it goes to auction with a sale estimate of £100,000 to £120,000..
1962 Porsche ‘Standard J’ Tractor – I really fancy one of these, 3 cylinders, the write-up states ‘it starts on the button’ – It definitely looks the part, would be a useful tool around the Paddock at home, and another addition to the Porsche collection – estimated to fetch just £13,000 – £15,000.
