Car auction prices have been through the roof recently, and collectors are taking the opportunity to make a small fortune all in one go. Instead of just selling off one car, or even a few in one auction, collectors have started to sell their cars as a set. We recently saw a $1 million collection of Mercedes Black Series cars and a legendary collection of Fords. Jerry Seinfeld made headlines by selling his $10 million worth of classic Porsche cars at auction, but Gooding & Company may have an even better collection coming up for Porsche enthusiasts.
This 12-car set is part of the James G. Hascall Collection. The collection is referred to as "50 Years of Porsche Excellence" because it includes amazing Porsche models than span more 50 years in age from 1960 to 2016. All of the cars will be sold without reserve at the Amelia Island Auction held on March 9, 2018. Mr. Hascall started collecting back in the 1980s with his wife, and the two of them took several of these cars on road rallies. Hascall, the former head of a military-industrial defense contractor, passed away in 2016, but his incredible collection will live on. The most valuable car in the collection is the 1987 959 Komfort, which is estimated to sell between $900,000 and $1,200,000.
The second most valuable car is the 2005 Carrera GT, which is estimated to sell for around $800,000 to $1,000,000. The other cars in the collection include a 1960 356 B Cabriolet ($150,000-$200,000), 1965 356 C Cabriolet ($170,000-$200,000), 1969 911 2.0 S ($160,000-$180,000), 1972 911 2.4 S ($200,000-$250,000), 1989 911 Carrera Speedster ($250,000-$325,000), 1993 964 Carrera 4 Targa ($75,000-$100,000),1994 964 Turbo 3.6 ($225,000-$275,000), 1996 993 Turbo ($150,000-$180,000), 1997 993 Turbo S ($325,000-$375,000), and 2016 991 GT3 RS $175,000-$250,000). This is one heck of a collection that and we'd love to take home a piece of it.
