At the RM Sotheby’s Porsche 70th Anniversary Auction, the “Project Gold” sold for over $3.4 million USD. The prestigious auction was held at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Including the buyer’s premium, the overall price for the 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo Classic Series “Project Gold” equates to $3,415,000. That is quite a bit of bank for a 993 Turbo. But, with only 1 unit from production, this car is quite collectible. Fortunately for RM Sotheby’s, the bidder’s determination led to a high sales price.
The 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo Classic Series “Project Gold” is a beautiful masterpiece. From interior to exterior, this car is the original, maybe even better. The original 993 Turbo was able to reach up to $200,000 in price, so $3.4 million is quite a bit more. Under the rear hood, this car sports a 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine with 450 horsepower. This motor is straight from the 993 Turbo S, rather than the base Turbo. The original manual transmission and AWD make this car a beast on the street. Imagine cruising down the road in this golden yellow metallic 993 rebuild, ah… life goals.
Porsche Classic Strikes Gold!

With the 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo Classic Series “Project Gold”, the Porsche Classic team hit the jackpot. Being from the past made this car stunningly unique as well as shows that older vehicles are still amazing. Thankfully, the Porsche parts were waiting to be built for quite some time. But, at $3.4 million USD, it may be smarter to simply buy a Turbo S and paint it gold. It may even be cheaper to include flakes of gold in the paint. But, it wouldn’t be as unique as this car. Overall, the “Project Gold” is an amazing automobile.
In 2018, Porsche is celebrating its 70th anniversary as a sports car manufacturer. For this special occasion, the Porsche Classic division went ahead with a unique project. This venture goes by the name of Project Gold. Basically, Porsche is creating a brand-new classic vehicle. The project, a Porsche 993 911 Turbo Project Gold, will only have one unit available for market. Fortunately, people who’d like to buy the car can attempt to do so at auction. During the RM Sotheby’s auction in Atlanta on October 27, 2018, this car will be sold for a great cause. All funds from the vehicle will go to the Ferry Porsche Foundation. This charity focuses on youth development, education, and social activities.
The brand-new Porsche 993 911 Turbo Project Gold will be the official last air-cooled model by the manufacturer. Cut off two decades ago in 1998, this car continues the chassis number chain while being unique to itself. First, this build features a 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine with 450 horsepower. This motor is from the original 993 Turbo S, rather than the 993 Turbo. Obviously, this engine will feature air-cooling technology from the 90s period rather than modern coolant systems. The engine works in combo with an original manual transmission and AWD system. Yes, the transmission and AWD system were pulled from a classic parts bin at the facility. Finally, the car wears a beautiful golden yellow metallic paint to signify its presence.
Going Once! Going Twice! Sold!
