Porsche 959 joins €8 million auction lineup at Techno Classica

Several iconic vehicles will cross the block at the German classic car event in mid-April

International auctioneers Coys have lined up a dazzling display of over 60 classics – worth €8 million – for the Techno-Classica show in Essen, Germany, on Saturday 18th April.

Held at one of the worlds largest classic car shows, the auction will see vehicles such as a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTE (estimated from €285,00 to €350,000), a 1960 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II Drophead by H.J Mulliner (€240,000 to €300,000) and a 1971 Maserati Ghibli 4.9SS Spyder (€250,000 to €300,000) go under the hammer.

Chris Routledge, Managing Partner of Coys, said, ‘The auction at Techno-Classica Essen is one of the most well established classic car sales in the world and headlines Coys’ positions as the leading international auction brand in Germany.’

Of particular interest is a 1988 Porsche 959 Coupe. An unarguable milestone in Porsche’s history, the innovative ‘80s supercar has become an essential part of any serious Porsche collector’s garage.

As one of a limited run of just 250 cars, it is unsurprisingly offered in excellent condition. Routledge says of the car, it is ‘very much the new darling for Porsche collectors and very rare too.’

Another star entry is a 1955 300SL Gullwing, which, thanks to factory servicing and restoration work at Mercedes’ Stuttgart Classic Centre in 2011, is regarded as one of the finest examples around of the iconic coupe. It is estimated at an eye watering €900,000 to €1,200,000.

Those with an eye on pre-war metal will be interested in the BMW 328 Roadster, discovered as a project in Germany a decade ago, and, having been brought over to the UK for restoration (being worked on by TT Workshop in London and Bristol Engineering in Wiltshire), is estimated at €480,000 to €600,000.

Other notable exotica include a 1980 BMW M1 (est €275,000-€350,000), a 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB (€125,000-€160,000), a 1971 Ferrari 365GT 2+2 (€140,000-€180,000), a 1963 Maserati Sebring (€120,000-€150,000) and a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster (€50,000-€60,000).

The auction takes place on Saturday 18th April at 3:00pm.

Turbo Engines Coming to Porsche 911 Carrera in 2016

2014 Porsche 911 Carrera SWe’ve had rumors for a while now that Porsche was planning downsized turbocharged engines for the formerly naturally aspirated 911 Carrera and Carrera S—the base and midrange models that notch in below the capital-T Turbo. Now, a report from Australian blog Motoring seems to confirm the new turbo engines that will debut with the facelifted 991-series set to be revealed at Frankfurt later this year.

According to Motoring’s chat with Porsche product line director Dr. Erhard Mössle, the current 991-series sports car will continue in production until the end of 2015. When the refresh hits, it will bring turbo engines to the formerly naturally aspirated Carrera and Carrera S models for the very first time.

At the bottom end, the Carrera will feature a 2.7-liter turbo flat-six, down from 3.4 naturally aspirated liters in the current model. This lowest-output 911’s new turbo engine will kick out an estimated 400 horsepower, up from 350 in today’s Carrera, while simultaneously improving fuel economy to somewhere near 30 mpg

One step up from the base model, the updated Carrera S will replace the 400-horse naturally aspirated 3.8-liter with a turbo 3.4 flat-six. Motoring’s conversation revealed only that the new turbo engine will put out “more than 400 horsepower,” which makes sense—traditionally, the Carrera S offers about 50 more ponies than the non-S.

At the top end of Porsche’s performance ladder, the updated 911 Turbo, Turbo S, and GT2 will all keep their current 3.8-liter turbo flat-sixes. For the time being, Porsche’s most track-oriented GT3 and GT3 RS models will stay blessedly naturally aspirated. Mössle also reassured Motoring that the facelifted 991-generation 911 won’t see any hybrid drivetrains.

As for the long-term future? Expect the fully updated next-gen 911 to launch in 2020. That’s when, according to Mössle, Porsche will have to bite the bullet and incorporate some sort of hybridized powertrain in the 911 lineup.

“If CO2 targets get even tighter in 2030 and beyond, we won’t be able to do it without electrification,” Dr. Mössle said.
