Updated: Mar 6

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).

Air-Cooled Porsche Sales in February 2021

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.

1970 Porsche 914-6

1970 Porsche 914-6 in desirable Tangerine

Final Sale Price: $75,500 –no sale

Sale Price Estimate: $100,000 plus

Notable Features: This was a no-sale because the reserve was probably at least $100,000 since the median sale price for a 914-6 especially in the highly popular tangerine color is $123,000. Is the market softening for 914-6’s?

1982 Porsche 930 Turbo Slant Nose

Original Porsche 911 Slantnose was a no-sale

Final Sale Price: No sale at $103,930

Sale Price Estimate: $200,000

Notable Features: This was a quality Slantnose so the only reason for the no-sale is the wrong venue or maybe the market for the high-end collectibles is softening.

1962 Porsche 356 Notchback

Strong Sale Price for 1962 Porsche 356 Notchback

Final Sale Price: $81,500

1976 Porsche 912E

No-Sale 1976 Porsche 912E

Final Sale Price: No sale at $29,000

Sale Price Estimate: $35,000

Notable Features: A lot of money was put into this Porsche so the buyer probably expected a stronger result. In reviewing the comments within BAT there was little interest in the car. The ’76 912 is a real one-off in the Porsche market and Air Brigade continues to believe it is an affordable buy to enter the Air-Cooled Porsche market.

1984 Porsche Carrera 3.2 with 915 Transmission

1984 Porsche Carrera 3.2 with 915 Transmission that Outsold the G50 Carrera

Final Sale Price: $72,001

Sale Price Estimate: $60,000

Notable Features: The median prices of 915-equipped Carreras in 2020 was $77,000 so the price was inline. This was a desirable black over black with low miles.

1987 Porsche Carrera 3.2 with G50 Transmission

Diamond Blue Porsche Carrera 3.2 with G50 Transmission

Final Sale Price: $60,500

Sale Price Estimate: $65,000

Notable Features: This Porsche had a terrific looking Diamond Blue color but didn’t sell for as strong of price as expected that may be due to its repaint, non-original wheels and high miles (127,000).
