Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder auction

Gooding and Company Amelia Island 2012 – Auction Preview

The Gooding and Company Amelia Island Auction 2012 will be held Friday, March 9th on the grounds of the Amelia Island Plantation in Florida.

Gooding and Company assembled more than 80 vintage and modern collector cars for its 3rd annual Amelia Island Auction. While Porsche won’t be the only manufacturer offered for sale, it may be hard to notice anything else in the sea of Stuttgart sport racers. Headlined by the Drendel Family Collection—widely considered the finest collection of turbocharged racing Porsches in private hands—many of the auction results will likely produce world-record numbers. Highlights include a Porsche 917/30, Porsche 935/76, Porsche 962 and Porsche RSR Carrera Turbo 2.14, among many others. Each and every Drendel car is a piece of Stuttgart racing history and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. In addition to the Matthew Drendel Collection, other Porsche consignments include a 1955 550 RS Spyder, 1973 911 Carrera RS, 1967 906E, 1988 959 and several 356 / 911 variants.

“The result of well-developed connoisseurship and deep passion, Matthew Drendel built what has become the world’s most significant private collection of turbocharged Porsches,” says David Gooding, President and founder of Gooding and Company. “It’s a very rare occurrence when a refined, single-marque collection of high-quality road and race cars is offered to the public. We feel privileged to have been selected to present the Drendel Family Collection in Amelia Island.”

Among the non-Porsches offered at the 2012 Gooding Amelia Island Auction are Mike Hawthorn’s 1951 Ferrari 212 Inter Coupe, the ex-George Reed 1960 Chevrolet Corvette “Race Rat”, a Zagato-bodied 1953 Fiat 8V and the 1948 Tucker Torpedo that was featured in the film Tucker: The Man and His Dream.

In 2011, Gooding and Company offered 85 automobiles for sale, with 70 finding a new owner, reflecting a 82.4% sales rate. Total sales volume was $17,879,550, inclusive of buyer’s premiums. The average price per car sold was $255,422. Top sale went to the 1951 Ferrari 212 Export Cabriolet at $1,870,000. (See 2011 Gooding and Company Amelia Island – Auction Report)
