    Drendel Porsche Collection Offered at Gooding Amelia Island 2012

    The Porsche Collection of Matt Drendel will be offered at the 2012 Gooding and Company Amelia Island Auction, scheduled for Friday, March 9th in Amelia Island, Florida.

    1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder, Chassis 917-30-004, Estimate: $3.25 – $4 million – The Porsche 917 racing program was one of the most successful in the history of motor sport and the 1973 917/30 Can-Am Spyder represents its pinnacle. With a 1,000 hp turbocharged flat-twelve, American racing champion Mark Donohue’s 917/30 was so dominant that the Can Am Challenge Cup was disbanded and the other manufacturers withdrew due to their inability to compete.

    1984 Porsche 962, Chassis 962-103, Estimate: $1.75 - $2.225 million - According to Gooding & Company specialists, this car is the finest example of the Porsche 962 and one of the most successful racing cars of its generation. With only two owners from new, this back-to-back 24 Hours of Daytona winner will be one of the Drendel Family Collection’s most significant offerings at the auction with its immediately recognizable Lowenbrau livery, list of legendary drivers, unrivalled racing record and superb documentation.

    1974 Porsche RSR Turbo Carrera 2.14, Chassis 911 460 9016 (R9), Estimate: $1.75 – $2.25 million – The Carrera RSR Turbo 2.14 represents a turning point in the history of competition Porsches when it introduced the use of turbocharged engines in production-based race cars. Used by the factory for development, this hand-built experimental 911 was campaigned as a Martini & Rossi Porsche Works entry in the 1974 season at Nürburgring, Imola and Zeltweg. Few racing cars of this caliber have remained so correct and untouched, making this car an extremely important piece of Porsche history.

    1976 Porsche 935/76, Chassis 930 570 0001 (R14), Estimate: $1.7 - $2 million - The first 935 built, this car served as the prototype and development mule for one of the most successful series of Porsche racing cars. This historically-significant example ran as a factory team car under the recognizable Martini & Rossi livery and its podium finishes at Watkins Glen and Dijon helped Porsche capture the Group 5 World Championship in 1976. In addition to its impressive provenance and great originality, this factory race car has the remarkable distinction of being the first Porsche with a 930 serial number prefix.

    1985 Porsche 962, Chassis 962-HR1, Estimate: $900,000 – $1.2 million – During its career, this Porsche achieved 11 overall wins and 19 podium finishes, as well as 2 IMSA GTP Drivers Championships and an IMSA GTP Manufacturers Championship. Along with its Holbert Racing sister car, 962-103, this 962 is one of the most significant 962s in history. Fresh from restoration, 962-HR1 was displayed at RennSport Reunion IV in 2011.

    1997 Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution, Chassis 993-GT1-004, Estimate: $900,000 - $1.2 million - This rare factory team car – one of just four built - has competed at top events (Le Mans, Nurburgring and Laguna Seca) in the highest levels of international racing with known drivers behind its wheel. Later campaigned by Rohr Racing at Daytona and Harry Bytzek in the Canada GT Challenge Cup, GT1-004 has one of the most impressive racing records of any factory GT1.

    Great collection, but tragic story behind the guy who owned it.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    It was sad that he died young and rather unexpectedly. We'll be at the auction and take some detail pics.
    The 924GTP should interesting... have seen several of the other cars before but not that one.
    Never own more cars than you can keep charged batteries in...

    Hope the new owner brings them out to the West Coast in August (any august), they all lack in my list of "spotted cars". Amelia again is not on the list this year.
