What Were the Final Sales Prices on these Porsche Auctions?
In February 2021, Air Brigade analyzed 13 different sales of Air-Cooled Porsches that were at auction. Sales were followed at the two major online Porsche auction sites: Bring-a-Trailer (BAT) and PCarMarket (PCar).
Surprises in February
The three surprise final sales were the 1962 Porsche 356 Notchback, the 1984 Porsche Carrera 3.2 and the 1970 Porsche 914-6.
The 356 Notchback sold for $81,500, more than double its median sales price of $39,500. Does this mean the 356 Notchback is no longer the redheaded stepchild in the 356 world?
The strong prices of Porsche Carrera 3.2 with the 915 transmission continue their 2020 trend of selling in the $70,000’s and outselling the G-50 model as was indicated by the sale of a 1984 Carrera and 1988 Carrera that Air Brigade followed.
The third surprise of February was its lower than expected performance rather than its exceeding performance and that was the 1970 914-6 that closed bidding at $75,500. This was a quality 914-6 and should have brought over $123,000 according to 2020 sale prices.
Let’s take a look at the final sales prices of these Air-Cooled Porsches that Air Brigade looked at during February 2021.
