Superficial older restoration to decent but unimpressive touring condition. Sound but unattractive paint, sound upholstery. Reported sold by RM at Hershey last year for $19,250 and not much better now than it was then. Still, it’s quite a bit of car for not much more than a comparable Model T Ford would bring.

Two Recaro seats, six-point belts, full roll cage, power steering, driver-adjustable front-rear and lateral torque split. A loose surface racing special intended for serious racing drivers. Essentially unused since purchased from Porsche in 1991 and now with just 4,400 km on its odometer. Comes with purchase-related paperwork, DOT correspondence (including a letter from NH Governor Judd Gregg), parts manual, post-build paperwork from Helmut Greiner and both chassis and bodywork manuals. Michael Amalfitano Collection. No Reserve. You gotta be a Porsche anorak to appreciate this Porsche … until you spend some time with its specs and realize it is a specialized weapon focused on specific competition conditions and superbly suited to taking advantage of them. There are only 20, so the bidders’ conclusion here has to be considered determinative. (Picture Unavailable).
