or, update on “my” favorite 917/30….
One by one the Drendel Collection came across the block and one by one they were sold. When the dusts settles these 17 incredible Porsches brought in nearly $18,000,000 in total, achieve 9 of the 11 Porsche records set that day including a double world auction record for the the highest price paid for a Porsche at $4,400,000 for the 1973 917/30 Can-Am.
In fact, of the 70 cars sold by Gooding over the course of this auction, 25 of them are Porsches bringing in $23,388,200. That’s means that only 36% of the cars sold accounted for more than 65% of the $36,057,800 in total sales. A very, very strong showing for Porsche. You can see the complete auction results here.
