it is a unique Specimen in the world.
The copy of the images is a rarity. In the first place because the first generation of the Porsche 911 was not supported with version cabriolet, having to conform to the, to the dessert iconic, version targa. However, this unit was not a transformation aftermarket, but a realization official, despite not having been conducted by the own Porsche, but by the coachbuilder Karmann.
The explanation is simple, the coachbuilder German was in charge of making the version cabriolet of the Porsche 356, the predecessor of the 911, and during the development of this last one, Porsche will requested the manufacture of the first prototypes of the so called 901, in addition to an exemplary convertible, which is the vehicle that illustrate the images.
This unknown prototype of the Porsche 911 has the chassis number 13360 and contrary to what may seem, does not belong to the collection of the German brand, but rather to a particular owner who exactly has now decided to put it up for sale.
Mechanically it is indistinguishable from the rest of Porsche 911 1964.
In all his life so has had only two owners, from 1966 until the year 2000 it was owned by Manfred Freisinger, where it was bought directly from the factory and did not get rid of the until he delivered him to be with a new model of the signing of Stuttgart, a very bad idea in our opinion, since the prototype will be auctioned in the coming month of February and estimates point a value between eur 850,000 and one million euros. Not a single model range-Porsche from the year 2000 has a value similar to that of today.
The lucky second owner of the 911 Cabriolet, #13360, whose identity has not been released by the time, it got that year, and after little more than three decades, has decided to put it up for sale in the upcoming auction of RM Sothebys in Paris, which will take place in February of 2017.
Mechanically speaking, the specimen does not differ from the rest of the copies of the model 1964. Account with the 6-cylinder boxer engine of 2.0 liters of 130 horses, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, a delicacy technique at that time.
Its price may be around one million euros.
the state of The copy is flawless, despite not having been restored never, and shows the original color with the one that came out of the factory in its day, so they pray to the few previous reports available from the unit. Must have been treated with great care, for the great look that show all your details, including numerous chrome elements outside, and all of its elements are still original.
Until the early eighties, when he was already a few years on the market the second generation of the 911, Porsche not decided to release a version cabriolet real, which since then has been one of the constants of the model.
