1956 Porsche Type 550/1500RS Spyder

In offering this original, unmolested and intricate “time machine” 550 RS Spyder, Bonhams is privileged to present what is considered to be the world’s best-preserved, never-restored example of this seminal Porsche model surviving today.

There are inevitably some panel ripples, minor paint cracks, and scuffs and discoloration in places on chassis 0090, but these fall squarely into the category of utterly compelling fine patina.

In 2010, under the special awards category of Read More

1988 Porsche 911 Turbo / RUF-Converted CTR

1988 Porsche 911 Turbo

RUF’s ascension from little-known Porsche tuner to household name came after the publication of the July 1987 issue of Road & Track magazine. In an article titled, “The World’s Fastest Cars,” the Road & Track staff assembled a venerable “who’s who” of the world’s most incredible street-legal supercars, of which the Ferrari 288 GTO and Lamborghini Countach sat at the slower end of the spectrum — with top speeds of 179 mph. Rocketing past the Mercedes-Benz 300E AMG “Hammer” and Read More

Keeping the IRS Away from Your Cars

U.S. Individual Income Tax Return

Tax planning time is usually the end of the year. But this year, between the uncertainties of the presidential election, the IRS working on eliminating some of our favorite tax-planning techniques, the current softness in the collector car market, and interest rates possibly going up, it makes sense for the savvy collector to start early on tax planning.

Today’s tax rates

You have probably noticed that income tax rates have gone up in the past couple of years. The maximum Read More

Here Comes the Judge


What do a 1968 Ford GT40 Mk III, a 1967 Porsche 911S, a 1972 4.9 Ghibli Spider SS, a Toyota 2000GT, a 1972 Ferrari 246 GT and a 1968 DeTomaso Mangusta prototype have in common?

These are exotics with 6- and 8-cylinder engines placed in the front, middle and rear of their chassis. The GT40 is a barely disguised race car, and the Dino is a high-speed grand touring car. Imagine the 911 as an extraordinarily original survivor, and the Read More

1994 Porsche 928 GTS

1994 Porsche 928 GTS

Unveiled at the Geneva Salon in 1977 and voted Car of the Year for 1978, the 928 was intended as an upmarket replacement for the long-running 911, but Porsche’s rear-engined classic would outlive its younger sibling. The front-engined 928’s stylish hatchback body featured aluminum doors, bonnet and front wings in the interest of weight saving, while ingenious impact-resistant bumpers made of color-matched plastic were incorporated into the nose and tail.

The V8 engine — Porsche’s first — displaced 4.5 liters Read More

1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR

1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR

In 1973, Roger Penske created a racing series called the International Race of Champions, or IROC. Equally ambitious and unique in concept, the IROC series aimed to place the world’s best racing drivers in identical cars to compete against each other over several rounds at leading U.S. venues. In so doing, Penske’s aim was to reduce all the usual variables in motor racing, so that only the bravest, cleverest and most skilled driver would prevail.

While deciding on a car Read More
