Here's Your Chance to Own the Last-Ever 991-Generation Porsche 911

Porsche announced Monday it’s teamed up with auction house RM Sotheby’s to sell the last-ever 991-generation Porsche 911. The car, a 911 Speedster with the optional Heritage Design package, will be auctioned to benefit United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund.

The Speedster, if you’re not familiar, is basically a 911 GT3 with a funky convertible top. It uses the GT3’s 500-horsepower 4.0-liter flat-six engine, capable of revving to the same 9000 horsepower. It also sends power to the rear wheels using a six-speed manual transmission. The Heritage Design package adds GT Silver Metallic paint with white stripes, “Porsche” decals along the sides, wheels finished in Platinum Satin, and Cognac leather inside. Porsche says this particular Speedster, the final of 1948 units produced, has covered just 20 miles since it rolled off the factory line.

Porsche says the winner of the auction will also receive a 911 Speedster Heritage Design Chronograph watch, which incorporates the same design features as the car itself.

“We are all profoundly affected by the current situation and the immediate impact it’s having on those most at risk in our communities,” said Porsche Cars North America CEO Klaus Zellmer in a statement. “United Way continues to step up to the plate and their response to this crisis has been quite impressive,” he added. “So we are proud to do our part. I also appreciate the swift support of RM Sotheby’s to make this possible and I am hopeful that the sale of a very special Porsche will help in a small way.”

The Speedster will be auctioned without reserve via RM Sotheby’s online-only bidding platform starting on April 15, 2020 at 11 a.m. eastern time, and ending on April 22 at 1 p.m. eastern. Interested parties should head on over to RM Sotheby’s dedicated site to register.
