Porsche entered a new decade by ending an era, as it rolled out the final 991-series Porsche 911 from its factory in December. Back then, we already said the 991 went out with a bang—little did we know that the iconic Porsche was meant for even bigger things just a few more months down the line.
You see, the very vehicle that was marked as the last 991 is now being auctioned off via RM Sotheby’s Online Only platform. But what makes it even more special than it already is? The proceeds—excluding taxes and fees—will be donated by Porsche Cars North America to the COVID-19 community response and recovery fund of United Way Worldwide.
The winning bidder also gets a unique Porsche Design Speedster timepiece and a leather-bound book signed by Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser and Andreas Preuninger. The book contains the original design sketches of the 991, as well as images of it being built. Said winning bidder also gets a personal tour of Porsche’s Weissach facilities in Germany.
All these are just cherries on top, though—the car alone makes the package worth the purchase. There are gold-plated ‘Speedster’ badges on both the exterior and the interior. That interior is also clad in premium leather all around. Of course, this Porsche provides plenty of power—it packs a 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated flat-six engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
The online auction for this Speedster will open on April 15, 2020 and will close a week later on April 22. If you had the money, would you try your luck bidding on this special Porsche?
