Chassis No. 9306700151, Engine No. 6762002. India Red. 2996-ci, 485-hp turbo H-6. 4-speed manual. Gold BBS wheels, slick tires, flares, whale tail, and rollcage.

Evaluation: Competition restoration | The first production 934, one of 31 built. Regularly raced from 1976 to ’79 at the Nürburgring, Hockenheim, Zolder and others. It also finished third in class and 19th overall at Le Mans in 1979. Restored in the mid-2000s. Paint shines as if it were fresher than that, although there’s some orange peel. Clean interior. Tidy and restored underneath. The wheel locks have marks on them. Restored to new, as-raced condition and eligible for all sorts of great racing events.

Bottom Line: While not as hardcore as the 935, the 934 is a seriously fast 911-based FIA race car from a period when Porsche was the dominant force in sports car racing. The combination of pedigree and rarity means that seven-figure prices are the norm. Gooding sold another 934 with North American racing history here two years ago for $1.32 million. This one’s run at Le Mans and its status as the first built nudged it past that number. A new record price for the model.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
