Porsche 911S and 964 RS to star at Historics spring sale
Two concours-quality aircooled Porsches will be among the 140 lots offered at the Historics auction on March 3 in Ascot, UK
Two concours-quality air-cooled Porsches will star at the Historics auction at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday March 3.
The 1971 Porsche 911 2.4 S and 1992 Porsche 911/964 RS Lightweight are among 140 entries in the sale, the first of 2018 for Historics.
The green right-hand drive 2.4 litre 911 S, restored to original specification, comes with a comprehensive album of photographs and invoices from Porsche specialists, with restoration costs over three years totalling some £120,000, including £35,000 in labour charges.
Little more than 3000 Porsche 911 S models were manufactured from 1969 to 1971, and good examples are highly soughtafter. The S was the sportiest production model after the fabled 2.7 RS Carrera, and the estimate for this example is £165,000-£190,000.
The 1992 Porsche 911/964 RS Lightweight has been owned by the vendor for all but the first six months of its life. It has covered under 18,000 miles from new – an average of less that 700 miles per year – and retains its original registration number, J7 RSL. It is one of just 70 right-hand drive Lightweights manufactured, or which only 40 were sold in the UK.
The Guards Red 964 has been stored in a dehumidified garage by its owner of the last 26 years, and never taken to the road in inclement weather. It is estimated at £220,00-£250,000.
Auction Director, Edward Bridger-Stille, commented: 'They have to be seen to be truly
appreciated. The genre of air-cooled Porsche 911s has proved to have enduring appeal for a long time, reflected in strong demand at auction and in robust sale prices, and these two highlight examples are magnificent showcases in every respect.'
Historics' spring sale at Ascot Racecourse takes place on Saturday, March 3, preceded by two viewing days on the Thursday and Friday prior. Full information on the Historics website.
