Porsche Project Gold Fetches $3 Million At Auction

A few months ago, Porsche Classic finished Project Gold – a 993 era 911 that spent 18 months being restored from the ground up using the latest technology, and yet still making sure everything was classic as the 993. Only the Golden Yellow Metallic paint used on the new 911 Turbo S Exclusive series was modern.

The engine is a period correct air cooled 3.6L flat six that produces 450 horsepower thanks to twin turbo chargers. The suspension, interior, all-wheel-drive system, everything is brand new and was done in house.

At the RM Sotheby’s Porsche’s 70th anniversary auction event, Project Gold fetched In incredible $3.1 million USD in ten minutes flat. The lucky owner won’t even be able to drive the car on public roads (which might be a good thing if we are honest) due to it not being road legal.

Nevertheless, all the proceeds will go towards the not-for-profit Ferry Porsche Foundation
