To celebrate Porsche's 70th anniversary, RM Sotheby's will host a dedicated auction later this month at Porsche's North American headquarters in Atlanta. A wide variety of Porsches has been consigned and today we take a detailed look at three competition cars.
Our favourite is this ex-John Fitzpatrick Racing Porsche 956. Completed in May of 1983, it raced at Le Mans twice, won at Brands Hatch and also became the only 956 to win a race in North America at the 1983 Watkins Glen Can-Am race. Following its contemporary racing career, chassis 956-110 has had just two long-term owners and is now expected to sell for over $5 million.
Raced extensively and as recently as the Le Mans Classic in the summer was this Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.0. It was one just 10 built in 1975 and was campaigned in period by the German Tebernum and Gelo teams. Its most recent owner drover 911 560 9121 to class victories at the Le Mans Classic in July and back in 2016 as well. Ready to go, it can be yours for just over $2 million.
Rarer and far less well known is the 935 K4 consigned. One of two built, this was the Kremer Brothers' ultimate development of the 935. The example on offer was sold new to Ted Field's Interscope team.
Due to debut in 2019, Acura have revealed the Evo version of the NSX GT3. Compared to the original GT3, it boasts revised bodywork and new turbochargers for improved performance. These upgrades can be fitted to existing cars as well but some of the revised electronics and ABS system are only found on freshly built NSX GT3 Evos.
