A breathtaking collection of Porsche rarities has been listed on the Collecting Cars auction platform – all lots are for sale at No Reserve.
The live auction includes 38 German beauties from the much revered Leonard Collection and has already attracted an accumulative bidding value of over £4.89 million, with the highest bid standing at £662,722 for the 2006 Porsche Carrera GT at the time of writing. The auctions close for bids on Sunday 16 May.
Rarely does such an astonishing collection of desirable Porsche cars make their way to auction without any reserve. The assemblage has been carefully built over the last decade by an enthusiast with an obsession for originality, quality, and above all, integrity.
Some highlights of the Leonard Collection:
Delivery mileage 30-year-old Porsche
Without a doubt, the Porsche 964 Carrera RS is one of the marques most waxed lyrical driver cars, and whilst there are three of these beasts on offer, this particular time-warp machine is dressed in Guards Red still remains ‘unregistered’ and intact with its frugal delivery mileage of 164km. This is a new 30-year-old Porsche 964 that looks as good as it did when it rolled off the German production line back in 1991.
The first ‘Rennsport’ 911
Formerly in the collection of Jamiroquai frontman and petrolhead, Jay Kay, this 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS stands out as the first coupe to wear the ‘Rennsport’ badge and is one of only 11 examples known to have left the factory finished in the tone of Aubergine hue. The car has been subject to a £115,000 bare-metal restoration and mechanical rebuild with no stone left unturned.
The Porsche everyone talks about
The Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0 is undoubtedly one of the greatest 911s of all time. Combining a 493bhp ‘Mezger’ flat-six with a slick manual transmission and sublime dynamics, it has earned a reputation for being one of the most exciting driver’s cars. Exceptionally rare in right-hand drive and finished in the extremely desirable Carrara White over matching white wheels, ceramic brakes and the suspension lift system. It also has just 713 miles from new – making it likely the nearest thing to a brand-new RS 4.0 that it is possible to find.
Founder and CEO of Collecting Cars, Edward Lovett said:
“It has been our pleasure to work with the seller of The Leonard Collection to bring these exceptional cars to market on the platform, and all at No Reserve. It is an astonishing offering from a passionate enthusiast who has spent years sourcing the highest-quality examples available, and there is no doubt the cars will capture the imaginations of our global audience of bidders.”
In addition to the 23 Porsche models on offer, a further 15 vehicles are also being sold, which include a 2004 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale and 2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia, two examples of the rare 1990s F512 M supercar, a fully restored 1972 Chevrolet Corvette ‘Stingray’, and a sensational 2005 Ford GT with every factory option.
