Porsche is arguably the leading sports car brand in the world. People want the cars so bad they would pay ridiculous amount of money to own these expensive Porsche!
What brings Porsche to the top of sports car industry ladder is not just its look, but also its efficiency in both usage and energy. That is the main reason why these expensive Porsche cars were sold for staggering prices!
“In the beginning, I looked around and could not find the car I’d been dreaming of: a small, lightweight sports car that uses energy efficiently. So I decided to build it myself.” –Ferry Porsche
That quote became the principle of everything Porsche does. This has driven the multi-billion dollar company through this industry for more than 65 years.
Headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, Porsche has assembled some of the best sports cars in the world. They are known for their speed and style. With great quality comes great price tag. How great is it? Let’s take a look!
5. Porsche 964 Turbo Flachbau ($1 million)
Before we start talking about Porsche cars, I should tell you about Jerry Seinfeld first. This legendary comedian is a Porsche enthusiast. He collects 46 of these sports cars. And he sold not just one, but many cars you will see on this list.
And this Porsche 964 Turbo Flachbau is one of them. Just a few months ago, he put 16 of his Porsche collections up on auction. Only one failed to meet its buyer at the Gooding & Co. auction in Florida.
This particular car was built in 1994. This is actually the Porsche 911 Turbo type 964. This model is equipped with 3.6-liter engine with a power output of 360 hp. Compared to other 1990’s Porsche 911 Turbo, this Porsche 964 features the exception of a Cabriolet limited production run and only available as a coupe.
This Jerry Seinfeld’s car met his new owner at the auction as he bid for $1,017,500 and took the car home.
4. Porsche 918 Spyder ($1.2 million)
The tag line for this Porsche model is Pure and Energy. The name “918” actually came from the fact that it took 918 drivers and pioneers to achieve this car’s greatness.
Porsche 918 represents an entirely new look of a supercar. Those 918 people worked hard to provide the initial spark and to reignite the old sports car dream. What do you think? Have they achieved it successfully?
With its $1.2 million price tag, I would say they have.
Porsche 918 Spyder was first presented as a concept car at the 80th Geneva Motor Show in 2010. However, its production began in September 2013.
This 2-seater car was designed by Michael Mauer. It is powered by a 4.6-liter V8 engine and built from the same material used for the RS Spyder Le Mans Prototype.
3. Porsche Carrera GT Zagato ($1.5 million)
Sports car fans out there must have heard of Zagato many times before. This name is commonly found attached to sports car brands such as Aston Martin and Porsche. For those who don’t know, Zagato is not a term or a car model. It is actually an independent coachbuilding company from Italy.
Since 1919, Zagato has been known for giving magical touches on some of the world’s best sports cars, including this Porsche Carrera GT Zagato. This one was built for Ernst Berg, a rally driver.
Compared to the regular Porsche Carrera GT, this one has redesigned hood and bumpers (both front and back). Plus, a double-bubble Zagato roof was added.
Built for a race car driver, it is powered with a stunning 5.7-liter V10 engine with a power output of 612 hp. With such features, and interference of both world-renowned racer and coachbuilding company, a $1.5 million price tag is a pretty good deal.
2. Porsche 356A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster ($1.54 million)
An item can trigger a bid fight if it is valuable. And what makes an item valuable is either its rarity or its history. This Porsche 356A GS Carrera Speedster definitely hits the mark in terms of historical value.
