It features seven limited-production Porsches from the last 25 years.
It's not uncommon for well-preserved Porsches to fetch exorbitant prices at auction. What is rather rare is for a single seller to put not one, but seven, rare Porsches up for auction at the same time. Known as the Swiss collection, these beautiful Porsches were all produced sometime over the last 25 or so years, with the oldest model being a 1995 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet. The newest model to form part of this prestigious collection is a 2018 911 GT2 RS.
RM Sotheby's will hold the Open Roads time-based online auction which gets underway later this month.
The other five Porsches that form part of this collection include a 2010 911 GT2 RS, a 2010 911 Sport Classic, a 2004 Carrera GT, a 2014 918 Spyder, and a 2017 911 R. Perhaps the most charming model is the elder of the group, the '95 911 Turbo Cabriolet. It's one of just 14 993-gen Turbo Cabriolets that were built by Porsche Exclusive and has a mere 32,000 km (19,883 miles) on the clock. It is believed that this Porsche was commissioned by Michael Schumacher's manager, Willi Weber. One of the three other convertibles in the collection is the yellow Carrera GT.
Making use of Porsche's first monocoque chassis and a 5.7-liter V10 with over 600 horsepower, this GT is one of just 644 examples that were bound for North America.
The 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic is one of only 250 examples and has just under 25,600 km (15,907 miles) on the clock. As its name dictates, it was built to honor Porsche's proud history and is finished in Sport Classic Grey paint. A big step up in power comes with the other 2010 Porsche in the collection, the 911 GT2 RS. This Swiss example has 620 hp, is finished in Carrera White, and has a gorgeous black/red leather interior. It's got just 6,000 km (3,728 miles) on the clock.
Of the remaining models, the breathtakingly fast 2014 918 Spyder is one of the best-optioned models. It's finished in Liquid Chrome Blue Metallic paint which was worth $63,000 on its own. Inside, there is a Mocha Brown leather cabin, making this one of just three 918 Spyders in this spec.
The 2017 Porsche 911 R, the purists' Porsche, also has a lovely spec, with Gulf Blue paint over brown leather; it's one of just 41 like it to have been delivered to Switzerland. This 991-gen 911 R boasted the GT3 RS' drivetrain but with a sweet-shifting six-speed manual gearbox replacing the PDK.
Last but not least is the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS 'Weissach'. It has only covered around 280 miles and is in a condition described as virtually new. For a sleeker look, its spoiler was removed, while it comes with gold-colored center lock wheels and a dark blue/light blue two-tone interior. It's finished in Azzuro California Metallic and produces close to 700 hp from its 3.8-liter flat-six engine.
Clearly, the seller of this stunning collection is a true Porsche enthusiast; the Swiss collection is one of the finest collections of Porsches we've ever seen.
