Following a positive start to the year, the classic and modern classic car market has continued to grow quickly during 2021, and a marque that never fails to attract keen interest is Porsche. Exceptionally strong Porsche sales results from the mainstream automotive auction houses this summer has generated industry-wide discussion from sellers and buyers alike.
With the return of live auctions (following a hiatus in 2020) has come insatiable enthusiasm for classic cars and a series of world record sales. Porsche is a marque performing well – classic, modern classic and contemporary examples at all price points are changing hands at a premium. A 1964 Porsche 356 C Carrera 2 Cabriolet sold for $1,039,000 (£758,152) over the recent Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance weekend, a 1968 Porsche 911 R achieved $3,360,000 (£2,451,532) in Monterey in August.
Bidders certainly seem keen to beat the drop of the auctioneer's gavel in this buoyant Porsche market, but with buyer's premium applied are some paying over the odds for cars in the heat of the moment? Presently buying at auction is perhaps not the best option for those seeking to secure a best in breed example of their preferred Porsche at a fair price.
