Sales Manager Chris Warren “fell in love” with a car that he saw at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, and it’s the car he would buy if money were no object. It’s a 1955 Porsche Carrera 1500 GT, with 11,000 original miles, and #11 of this series 15 “Pre-A” test cars. According to Chris, you would need $1.25 million to purchase this dream car… and notes that Premier can help put it in your driveway.
Lime Rock Park boasts one of the most beautiful natural settings of any race track, precisely because it’s located in the beautiful Northwest Corner of Connecticut. Rich Taylor of Vintage Rallies’ favorite loop will take you throughout Litchfield County, into neighboring New York State and the Berkshire Mountains of southwestern Massachusetts.
A Porsche enthusiast picked up a 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera that has been beautifully preserved at the RM Sotheby’s Amelia Island auction. It only has 41,000-miles, is painted in Guards Red and sold for $137,200. This version of the 911 Carrera was a critical link in the 911’s evolution that contributed to the model’s ongoing success.
One must wonder if Porsche doles out year-end bonuses based not only on sales, but also on how many different variants of the 911 the development team can come up with. The recent introduction of the 2018 911T brings the number to 23 currently available in the U.S.
