“Exclusive Porsche Auction: “The White Collection” Unveiled by RM Sotheby’s
RM Sotheby’s is thrilled to present “The White Collection” auction, featuring a remarkable gathering of rare Porsche models, all resplendent in brilliant white. This exclusive collection, to be auctioned on December 1-2, 2023, is the result of over a decade of meticulous collecting by a dedicated owner who pursued perfection.
The collection includes an impressive total of 63 motor vehicle lots, with a prominent focus on 56 Porsche sports cars. Additionally, there are two Porsche tractors and a selection of other notable automotive treasures. Beyond the vehicles, bidders can explore a comprehensive array of Porsche memorabilia, meticulously preserved, with over 500 lots on offer.
The auction takes place in a venue that can only be described as a Porsche haven. Designed with attention to detail, from the lofty ceilings to the gleaming floors, every aspect has been carefully crafted to enhance the allure of the cars.
The White Collection is a rare assemblage of Porsches, shrouded in mystery. The collector’s identity and the location of over 50 white models have remained undisclosed. However, this December, RM Sotheby’s will transform the White Collection’s home into an auction space, unveiling its vast offerings to the public.
A 2015 Porsche 918 “Weissach” Spyder with a pristine white exterior and blue leather seats takes center stage. This unique model, adorned with over $96,000 worth of bespoke tailoring from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, boasts only 12 miles on its odometer, and is estimated to fetch between $2.5 million and $3 million.
The collection includes other rare models, such as a 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 and a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS, all expected to attract Porsche enthusiasts from around the world.
The White Collection is more than just cars. It encompasses various motor vehicles, Porsche memorabilia, and a wide range of accessories, literature, and rare parts. Among these are two red Porsche-Diesel junior tractors, anticipated to bring in $50,000 to $75,000 each. For younger collectors, there are toy cars, teddy bears, and car seats. The auction also features bicycles, golf bags, tennis rackets, skis, sleds, furniture, watches, prints, luggage, and vintage memorabilia, making it a diverse and captivating event.
Don’t miss the unparalleled opportunity to acquire some of the most sought-after and desirable Porsche models. The White Collection auction is set to take place on December 1 and 2, 2023, and it promises to be a remarkable event for Porsche enthusiasts worldwide.”
The White Collection auction is not only a celebration of Porsche’s automotive excellence but also a testament to the secondary Porsche market. Many of the cars in this collection remain in their original, pristine condition, with remarkably low mileage, making them highly sought-after by Porsche enthusiasts and collectors in today’s market.
The venue for this auction, often referred to as a “Porsche sanctuary,” is located in Houston, Texas. Its design is a reflection of the collection’s meticulous nature, featuring white walls, white floors, and even white furniture. Visitors are asked to wear socks or protective booties upon entry, maintaining the immaculate environment. Cell phones are collected in a white bucket, ensuring an undistracted experience. The building even includes living quarters for the collection’s caretaker, Carl Bauer, who dedicates three-week periods to care for this astounding fleet of automobiles.
The White Collection’s owner developed a deep fascination with white Porsche cars from an early age, inspired by a white toy Porsche 911 received as a gift. Today, the collection is estimated to be worth over $25 million, a testament to his lifelong passion for the brand. The collection showcases a variety of iconic Porsche models, each with its own unique history and specifications, drawing Porsche enthusiasts from around the world.
This December, the White Collection’s enigmatic owner will share this extraordinary assembly with the world through RM Sotheby’s, providing a unique opportunity for Porsche aficionados and collectors to acquire a piece of automotive history.
