1967 Porsche 911S – Final Sale of $307,000 versus a $250,000 forecast
Air Brigade forecast this beautiful Slate Grey 911S with red leatherette as a quarter of a million dollar Porsche but was under estimate when the final bidding came in at $307,000. It was a beautifully built 911S that was non-original that would normally hurt the price. The build was so terrific the pricing went the opposite way delivering a final price more than 70% above the normal median price.
1975 Porsche 911S Silver Anniversary Edition Salvage Title – Final Sale of $36,000 versus a $35,000 forecast
There was very little left of the Silver Anniversary specials on this car except for a VIN number and one plaque. In addition the Porsche was selling with a Salvage Title that normally commands a discount of 25-30%. The final sale at $36,000 proved this “rule” true as the final sale price was approximately 27% less than several recent market sales of 1975 911 Anniversary Editions
1960 Porsche 356B 1600S Roadster with 912 Engine – Final Sale of 115,000 versus a $100,000 forecast. Air Brigade was off on its forecast for the sale of this 356. This was a no-sale at $112,000 so the seller certainly thought it was worth more, but Air Brigade believes it was all the money for a 356B 1600S Roadster without the correct engine.
1993 Porsche RS America - Final sale of $181,500 versus a pre-sale estimate of $160,000 -$180,000. This sale sets a new price standard for a Porsche RS America. This can all be attributed to low miles and being one of four in yellow for this special edition from Porsche.
1987 Porsche 911 Turbo Flat-Nose Cabriolet – Final sale of $220,00 versus a $200,000 - $250,000 forecast. This Flat-Nose sold right on the money for the pre-sale estimate but well over the median price of $193,000 for a 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo Flat-Nose Cabriolet. This is one of three Flat-Nose Turbo Cabriolets produced by the factory.
Beck 550 Spyder Replica – Finale sale of $37,000 versus a $40,000-$50,000 pre-sale estimate.
