Hammertime Updates

We have some heavy hitting Porsches gracing this edition of Hammertime updates. The big sale was what I feel is the best value; the ex-Holbert 1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GTR hammered at auction for $220,000 – a stunning value for a car of this provenance and in that condition. More relevant to most mere mortals was the continued ascension of the 964, with a near $105,000 bid selling the low mileage 1989 Carrera 4 Coupe. GTIs continued to bring good money, with a $7,200 1983 that wasn’t quite perfect. Strong, too, was the $18,400 offered for a 1995 M3 and $16,000 for the higher mileage 2004 S4 Avant. On the value end, we saw a reasonably priced Mercedes-Benz 400E, E23 BMW 735i and 2002 Beetle Turbo; affordable commuters for sure. Mods brought a mixed bag; the well executed 1.8T swapped Audi Sport 90 quattro sold for just under $6,000, while the RS backdated brought a surprising $77,700.

  1. I’m confused by the GTR story. It links to a two year old eBay auction where the car sold for $101K. Was there a recent sale where it sold for the purported $220K, and if so, where are the details of that listing???

  2. @ideola:

    The car sold at the Amelia Island Gooding & Co auction this year.
