Porsche returns with the third season of its series "Top 5". In this video, the brand presents the five most expensive Porsche in history. These are all extraordinary cars that auctioneers have found for millions of dollars. This video is presented by Ted Gushue, a rare car expert, but also a former editor of Petrolicious,
We start this ranking with the fifth rank. The Porsche 917/30 Spyder (pictured left) is considered one of the most sought-after sports cars on the market. Recently, the 917 / 30-004 chassis was auctioned for nearly $ 3 million. In fourth place we find the Porsche 550 A (right photo), which costs a bit more than the previous one. This car found a buyer for the modest $ 5.17 million in 1958! Today, the price has probably more than doubled, but is not for sale …
If the two previous cars are too rare to be known to the public, the third car in this ranking speaks more to you. This is the Porsche 911 GT1 road version from 1998, a car that was won at Le Mans and homologated for driving on the open road. In March 2017, this nugget was sold for nearly $ 5.65 million. The Porsche 911 GT1 road version delivers up to 800 hp thanks to its 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine.
The Porsche 956 finishes second. The 1982 956-003 chassis was sold for $ 10 million in 2015. Finally, the Porsche 917 K reaches the top spot in this ranking. The number 24 was driven by Jo Siffert in the movie by Steve McQueen. The copy with the chassis number 917-024 was sold for more than 14 million US dollars! This car also won a victory at Le Mans in 1970, and it is also the first Porsche to win this mythical race.
