A Porsche 911R is up for auction. Already

One speculator is set to reap the rewards of 911R ownership after just two months

We knew this kind of thing would happen, that some of the 991 911Rs built would end up in the hands of people who’d either squirrel them away without ever driving them, or flip them as soon as they’d taken delivery. This one’s the latter. 

It’s a brand new 911R, number 135 of 911, and it’s up for auction this Friday at Bonhams’s Zoute sale in Belgium. Delivered new to its current, Swedish owner in mid-July, no.135 has covered just 52km from new and is fitted with many options like air con, LED headlights and PCM. 

The estimate is between £220,000 and £310,000, which is some way north of the £136,901 you’d have paid new – provided you were lucky enough to get yourself on the list – but we think a bit of a bargain. We’ve heard of cars being traded for upwards of £400k, making 135 seem somewhat reasonably priced in a very odd kind of way.
