Excitement is building today as bidders anticipate tomorrow’s Coys auction at Schloss Dyck, Germany when six ultra-rare Porsches will be on the block. Their sale could generate more than $1.5 million. The Porsches are unique and include:

  • A 1992 Porshe 964 Turbo S Lightweight. Only 86 of them were build and expectations are that it will sell for between $650,000 and $750,000, though it could be more, knowing the vagueries of auctions.

  • A 1986 Porsche 911 Turbo. Expectations are that it will sell for between $180,000 and $190,000.

Though the Porsches are key marques in their market, there are other important international vehicles set for auction. Of the 80 cars that will pass through the auction tomorrow, a number are important Ferraris.

And, there is a 1998 Ferrari F355, previously owned by the president of the Ferrari Owners Club, Germany that is expected to attract between $85,000 and $95,000. Also, there is a pre-production 2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello that is projected to draw between $140,000 and $170,000.

The vehicles mentioned so far only touch on the quality machines that will be up for auction. Other important vehicles up for auction include:
