Video: 1000hp Lamborghini Gallardo vs Porsche 911 Turbo S

Even with an all-wheel drive system like found on the Lamborghini Gallardo, strapping two turbochargers into an Italian exotic will always create traction issues. So when the following 1000 hp Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder from Heffner Performance was pitted against a …

Five Porsche 911s you’ll want to buy at RM Auctions’ Paris sale

The rise and rise of prestige car auctions spoils us with plenty of incredible Porsche 911s to drool over almost every month and RM Auctions’ latest sale (taking place in Paris on Wednesday 4 February) is no different.

The event, in sight of the Eiffel Tower, will see five incredible neinelfers go under the hammer and you’ll definitely want to add each and every one to your collection. Here they are in ascending order:

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster

Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster

Inspired by the 356 Speedster, the Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Speedster was offered in two body styles – the more popular Turbo-look and the rarer narrow shell version.

While the car on offer in Paris uses the 930’s widebody it is finished in the unusual Forest Green Metallic and, during its two-owner history, has only racked up 7,500 miles.
Estimate:
€140,000-€180,000 (No reserve)

1992 Porsche 964 Carrera RS

Porsche 964 Carrera RS

2014 saw values of the revered Porsche 964 RS soar but we think this 57,700-kilometre example, finished in Polar Silver Metallic, is possibly undervalued. The estimate below may well be beaten.

Famed for its involving driving experience, this 964 Carrera RS is in superbly original condition, including all documentation and tools as well as an immaculate service history at various Italian Porsche Centres.
Estimate: €150,000-€190,000

1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Touring

Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Touring

With the Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS originally introduced at the 1972 Paris Auto Show, it seems suitable that two of the most iconic Porsches ever are returning to the French capital as part of RM Auctions’ sale.

The first is this Fraise (Strawberry) hued Touring specification car, part of the first 2.7 RS series of cars manufactured at the end of 1972. Originally delivered to Hamburg, this particular car no longer features its original engine, instead using the same 2,687cc unit from a 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera.
Estimate: €450,000-€550,000

1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight

Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight

That this second-series M471 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS doesn’t top our list is incredible. Still, this Lightweight car has the potential to be the first 2.7 RS to break the £1,000,000 barrier.

One of just 200 such cars, this French-registered 911 is fully original and has just benefitted from a full restoration. Inspected and verified by Jürgen Barth, with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this is possibly the most desirable Rennsport on sale today.
Estimate: €1,000,000-€1,400,000

1969 Porsche 911 S/T ex-Works

Porsche 911 S/T

It was always going to take something special to trump an M471 2.7 RS and this is it. Originally a 2.0-litre B-Series Porsche 911S, the works rallying squad used this car to win the 1969 Acropolis Rally with Pauli Toivonen at the helm.

It was converted to 2.2S specification in 1971 before a final upgrade to S/T mechanicals (including a 2.5-litre engine) was made in 1972, the year French privateers used the car to finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the colours on display here. A true piece of Porsche motorsport history.
Estimate: €1,100,000-€1,300,000

Appetite suitably whetted? Register to bid and you may just succeed in securing one of these perfect Porsches.

Keep an eye out for all the latest auction results in an upcoming issue of Total 911 magazine.

Tuthill Porsche WRC 2015: Monte Carlo Rally

Sébastien Loeb, a media onslaught and thick snow on stage 1: Tuthill Porsche takes us behind the scenes of Monte’s build up

Following a rewarding two-day test for the 2015 Monte Carlo Rally on mountain roads close to Monaco, we knew the Tuthill Porsche 997 R-GT was ready. Our driver – four-time WRC winner, François Delecour – was happy with the handling on Michelin tyres, and the specially developed EXE-TC dampers were keeping our two-wheel drive 911 connected to the expected mix of low grip surfaces.

tuthill-evo-blog-3-4

Testing video shared by evo.co.uk with our last blog had unveiled the car’s exciting new Visit Romania! livery for the first time, and fans had fallen in love with it. With team and supporters keyed up for Monte, we headed towards the start with adrenaline flowing.

The Porsche 911 RGT’s flat-six tone is popular with fans

Monte Carlo would be run over four days. Starting on Thursday with a media-friendly start in Casino Square, there followed a ceremonial start in the harbour before the rally cars set off for the first two stages, run at night around the snowy ski resort of Gap.

The Visit Romania! Tuthill Porsche was one of the cars shown outside the Casino, and was directed to park alongside the Citröen WRC car of nine-time World Rally Champion, Sébastien Loeb. Loeb enjoyed Porsche guest drives at a number of Porsche Supercup rounds last year, so he and François had a good chat alongside the 997, in front of every camera gathered in Monaco.

If this rally was all about media interest, we’d have won the event there and then. But we were here to race, and two exciting night stages lay ahead. As the cars lined up to start in turn, thick snow lay heavy on much of stage one, with brief spurts of dry tarmac splitting treacherous patches of black-ice.

Shakedown at the Monte Carlo Rally

Reigning world champion, Sébastien Ogier, set off in his updated Volkswagen Polo WRC and we were glued to live onboard pictures from the WRC+ service. Stage one would deliver an almighty surprise for rally fans, and a welcome surprise for our team.
