Evaluation: One of the first generation IROC cars, this Carrera RSR was raced by Gordon Johncock, Peter Revson and A.J. Foyt. It was later sold to Klaus Bytzek who raced it in IMSA and Trans Am, including the 24 hours of Daytona and the Sebring 12 hours in 1977 and 1980. Very good cosmetics, tidy and restored nearly like new. From the Lloyd Hawkins collection.
Bottom Line: Contrast this result with the IROC Camaro that crossed the block earlier but got bid to only $180,000, and the allure of the special IROC Porsche is apparent. In this case, the level of preparation and presentation was exceptionally high, as was the reputation of Lloyd Hawkins. Both gave bidders the confidence to step up to this over-estimate result.
