Gooding & Company Reveals a Treble of Competition Porsches Brimming with Exciting Provenance & Racing History


 

Santa Monica, Calif., 11 February, 2019

Gooding & Company, the auction house acclaimed for selling the world’s most significant and valuable Porsches, is thrilled to announce a trio of rare competition models to be offered at the company’s annual Amelia Island Auction on March 8, 2019.  Included is a 1979 Porsche 935, one of only seven examples built by the factory for 1979, a 1987 Porsche 962C built by Kremer with a fantastic Le Mans pedigree, and lastly, a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight that has been restored to its factory specification and livery.

“Porsche completely dominated endurance racing during the 1970s and 1980s with cars like the Carrera RS, 935, and 962,” states David Brynan. “Today, these are the most important and sought-after models from this golden era of motorsport, and we are thrilled to present three outstanding examples at our Amelia Island Auction, as they complement an already outstanding selection of Porsches from The Jan Koum Collection, The Dobbs Motorsport Collection, and The Brumos Collection.”

1979 Porsche 935 (Estimate: $2,550,000 – $3,000,000)
One of only seven examples built for 1979, this car represents the ultimate development of Porsche’s successful customer 935 program. These final 935s were factory equipped with the inverted gearbox and larger brakes - features that improved performance and reliability. This particular car, chassis 930 990 0027, was originally built to order for Otis Chandler, famed publisher of the Los Angeles Times and one of Porsche’s VIP customers. While most 935s were delivered with plain, white bodywork, Chandler requested that his be finished in the “Vintage Racing Blue” to match his Sunoco-liveried 917/30. Chandler raced the car only once – at the 1979 Los Angeles Times Grand Prix of Endurance at Riverside – and kept it in his incomparable private collection until 1993. Sympathetically restored by the current owner, a noted Porsche collector, and maintained in his stable of historic racing cars for the past 15 years, this 935 is among the finest examples in existence.

1987 Kremer Porsche 962C (Estimate: $1,000,000 – $1,250,000)
The Porsche 962 and its predecessor, the 956, are among the most important models in the history of endurance racing. In addition to factory team cars, Porsche built 962s for private teams, such as this car’s original owner, brothers Erwin and Manfred Kremer of Kremer Racing. While Kremer previously purchased a 962 from Porsche, this car was specially built by Kremer itself for the team’s efforts at the 1987 24 Hours of Le Mans, utilizing a new Thompson-built aluminum honeycomb tub, which was renowned for its rigidity and lightness. This innovative 962C became a dedicated weapon, finishing 4th overall in the 1987 24 Hours of Le Mans, and returning the following year to place 8th overall. With such an impressive race record, this exceptionally original Kremer Porsche 962C is easily among the most desirable sports racing cars of its era.

1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight (Estimate: $1,000,000 – $1,200,000)
With its “Carrera” name recalling Porsche’s past racing models and the “RS” model suffix denoting Rennsport, German for racing or motorsport, this new purpose-built 911 model debuted in 1973, featuring aggressive weight reduction measures including thinner-gauge steel for the body, lightweight glass, and minimal interior appointments. One of only 200 examples built, this Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight has had only four owners since new. Restored to show-quality condition under its current ownership, this Porsche is beautifully presented it its original white livery with green Carrera graphics and wheels.
