RM Sotheby’s in Houston will be hosting an auction of a notable Porsche sports car collection known as the White Collection. The collection, which has been assembled by an anonymous collector, features a total of 63 vehicles, with 56 of them being iconic Porsches, all of which are painted in the color white. The cars, mostly in their original condition and boasting low mileage, are set to be auctioned off in early December. In addition to the striking collection of sports cars, two Porsche tractors and a curated selection of Porsche memorabilia and parts will also be included in the auction.
The entire collection is housed in a specially designed storage space, famously referred to as the Porsche white room. This climate-controlled facility features high ceilings and reflective floors, which also serve as the venue for the auction event itself.
Among the highlights of the White Collection is a 2015 918 Spyder, painted in a paint-to-sample Grand Prix White, complete with color-matched magnesium wheels and a luxurious blue leather interior. This particular car, delivered brand new to the White Collection through Porsche of North Houston, comes with over $96,000 worth of bespoke options, and is equipped with the Weissach lightweight package. Notably, the 918 Spyder shows just 12 miles on the odometer, making it an extremely sought-after piece for avid collectors.
Adding to the allure of the collection are two outstanding examples of the 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7, including a Touring and a Lightweight version. Additionally, the White Collection features a rare 1994 911 Turbo S X85 “Flat-Nose,” one of only 39 examples built for the U.S. market, featuring distinctive pop-up headlights towards the end of the 964-generation 911’s production run.
It is also worth noting that almost every significant 911 model is accounted for in the collection, ranging from a 993-generation GT2 to a 2016 911 R, known for its status as a purist’s special. In addition to the wide array of 911s, the collection also includes multiple examples of the 356, as well as a 1970 914/6 and various examples of the front-engine 924, 944, and 928.
Several lots within the White Collection are expected to fetch seven-figure bids, with the 918 Spyder projected to draw the highest bids, estimated to reach between $2.5 million to $3 million, followed closely by the 993 GT2, expected to sell for an estimated $2 million to $2.2 million. It is worth noting that all the Porsches in the collection are in impeccable condition, further adding to their desirability among collectors.
The auction for the White Collection will take place on December 1-2, and promises to be an event that will attract serious enthusiasts and collectors alike. It presents a rare opportunity to acquire some of the most iconic and desirable Porsches ever built, all under one roof.
