Broad Arrow Announces Porsche 75th Anniversary Auction

This year marks the 75th anniversary of Porsche manufacturing and motorsport, and Porsche Cars North America is celebrating this June 8-10 at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

Broad Arrow Auctions has announced that they’ll be hosting a single-marque Porsche auction alongside the event, with 75 lots on hand to celebrate Porsche’s 75 years.

The Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta is billed as the first immersive brand destination built by Porsche, and it’s also part of Porsche’s corporate headquarters. Auction attendees will have the chance to tour the newly opened facility, including Porsche Classic’s Factory Restoration division and the new driver development track, which has been inspired by some of the more challenging and iconic racing circuits in motorsport.

One early highlight of the auction is a 1999 Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe, which is powered by the 381-hp water-cooled engine of a 2004-2005 996.2-gen 911 GT3 coupled to a six-speed manual transmission. It also has a chassis and brake system taken from the GT3, along with a ducktail spoiler reminiscent of the Carrera RS 2.7, a double-bubble roof panel and Sport Grey Metallic paint with Club Blau accent stripes. The design was put together by Porsche’s Director of Special Projects, Grant Larson — the same man who designed the 986 Boxer and the Carrera GT. It will be offered here without reserve.

Consignments are still being gathered for this first-time Porsche event —but you can bet on a good selection of the best Porsches available filling the ranks of this early June auction. Learn more here.
