The 1991 Porsche Carrera Convertible previously owned by the late Whitney Houston will be auctioned during the Dan Kruse-Leake Collector Car Show & Auction in San Antonio, April 20-21. The white, soft top convertible has only 53,313 miles. Insurance documentation shows that the car was once registered to Nippy, Inc., one of Miss Houston’s production companies.
The Collector Car Show & Auction will take place in Exposition Hall at the Freeman Coliseum. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and military and $7 for children. Doors open at 9 am daily. The auction will begin at noon on Friday and 10am on Saturday.
The event will feature 300 vehicles including Cadillacs, Corvettes, Camaros, Shelbys, Thunderbirds and other vintage, collector, muscle, custom cars and trucks. More than 5,000 car buyers, sellers and enthusiasts are expected to attend the event.
“Buyers won’t be disappointed at the quality or the quantity of the vehicles we have secured for this auction,” said Richard Sevenoaks, president of Leake Auction Company. “Our muscle car lineup is very strong; and we will have a wide range of cars that will suit everyone’s tastes.”
