Broad Arrow – Broad Arrow Auctions announced “The Porsche 75th Anniversary Auction.” The single-marque sale will be held during the celebration of the marque’s 75th anniversary at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, Georgia, over the weekend of 8-10 June 2023.
As the auction house of Porsche’s 75th Anniversary celebration by Porsche Cars North America in June, Broad Arrow’s sale will commemorate this milestone and feature a curated selection of 75 of the most desirable classic and collectible Porsche motor cars in today’s market.
HIGHLIGHT – 1999 Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe
This one-of-one Porsche Classic project created in collaboration with the Porsche Club of America (PCA) features a 996- generation 911 Carrera enhanced through Porsche’s Sonderwunsch one-off program. The sports car’s one-of-a-kind modifications enhance its appearance and performance, taking inspiration from the 2010 911 Sport Classic, a limited-edition model that was not sold in the U.S. Completed at Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, the Classic Club Coupe has the complete drivetrain from a 2004-2005 996.2-generation 911 GT3, a water-cooled flat-six that makes 381 horsepower and revs to 8,000 rpm, and a six-speed manual transmission. The Classic Club Coupe’s chassis and brakes are also taken from the 911 GT3.
The design was headed by Porsche’s Director of Special Projects, Grant Larson, who is best known for designing the 986 Boxster and Carrera GT. A ducktail spoiler evokes the iconic 1972 911 Carrera RS 2.7, and a double-bubble roof pays homage to a motorsports practice to make room for the driver’s helmet. The Sport Grey Metallic paint is both unique and understated while the painted racing stripes are light Sport Grey Metallic with thin Club Blau accent stripes. The Classic Club Coupe toured North America in 2022, making stops at Porsche Parade and PCA events throughout the year. It will now seek a new home as part of Broad Arrow’s offering at The Porsche 75th Anniversary Auction this spring.
