To close out its 964-series 911 Turbo, Porsche built the last 93 as “S” models, and 39 of those were made as the X85 Flachbau (“Flat-nose”) for the U.S. market. The Turbo S X85’s 380-horsepower 3.6-liter engine was basically the one used in the IMSA Bridgestone North American Supercar race series. The only X85 that came painted in Speed Yellow is on offer at RM Sotheby’s Scottsdale auction with a pre-sale estimate of $800K-$1M.
Premier was honored to be a sponsor of this year’s Colorado Grand, one of the nation’s oldest and most respected charity tour events. Here are highlights of the rally, from the perspective of our Vice President of Sales, Doug Ewing and longtime Premier client Tony Connor, who spent 5 days and 1,000 miles together as co-drivers of Tony’s modified 1956 356A Porsche.
