Although the coronavirus is gradually being defeated, the automotive industry is not slowing down its involvement in this fight. This time, from Porsche, an important economic injection has come as a result of a very special auction that was completed with a direct donation from the Stuttgart brand.
The first half million was obtained from the RM Sotheby’s auction of a very special unit: the latest Porsche 911 from the 991 series, nothing less than one of the super exclusive 911 Speedster. Those interested, who made 32 offers, raised to $ 500,000 the price of this unit (which is in the market at 300,000).
At this figure, Porsche Cars North America has contributed a similar amount, which raises the collection of the action to a million dollars. These funds will go to United Way Worlwide and will go to the fight against COVID-19 in the United States, the country with the most deaths and cases of coronavirus.
Porsche will have a special detail with the new owner of the car, since it will be delivered to him in a special event, he will be given a visit to the Weissach plant, where the 911 is manufactured, and you will be given a Porsche Design watch with the chassis number of the Speedster engraved on the box and a montage picture book of this latest unit from the Porsche 991 series.
