£3M Porsche collection to be auctioned at Amelia Island

An outstanding collection of a dozen Porsches including a 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort is to be auctioned at Amelia Island next month.

The 12 cars all come from the James G Hascall collection and will be offered without reserve by Gooding & Co on 9th March.

The highlight is the '87 Porsche 959, which has a mere 7400 kilometres on the clock and which is one of only 242 Komfort models; it is estimated to make between $900,000 and $1.2M.

It's far from the only desirable vehicle on offer, though. A 2005 Carrera GT – expected price $1M – is also likely to be highly sought after, on account of having done less than 120 miles.

Elsewhere, the list includes vehicles spanning 50 years of the marque's history, from a 1960 Porsche 356 B Cabriolet through to a 2016 Porsche 991 GT3 RS.

Hascall started his collection in the 1980s and, together with his wife, regularly raced the cars in road rallies.

Angus Dykman, Specialist at Gooding & Company, said, “It is a great honour to present this beautifully curated collection of cars featuring an important Porsche model from each decade over the last 50 years.

“Each example was carefully selected by Mr Hascall and his pride of ownership and care is evident throughout the collection.”
