Chassis no. WP0ZZZ91ZES102074; Engine no. 63E02677. Dark Blue Metallic and Turquoise over turquoise leather piped in dark blue. 3164/231hp, 5-speed, blue Fuchs wheels, whale tail, sunroof, full turquoise interior (including dash and steering wheel), Blaupunkt cassette stereo.

Evaluation: One-off car built for Tilman Brodbeck, assistant to Porsche CEO Peter Schutz. It has covered 105,590 km (65,611 miles) and there are several chips in the nose and elsewhere, but this stunning blended two-tone paint is holding up quite well. The wheels are very clean and the interior shows almost no wear, impressive considering the age and mileage. About as attention-grabbing as a 911 can get, and although Tilman Brodbeck isn’t exactly a household name this is a very special factory-customized car.

Bottom Line: During the preview days and at the auction itself, every Porsche fan we talked to about this car was enamored with it. Photos don’t do justice to the brilliance of the paint and the way it blends from one color to the other. It’s the kind of car you want to just sit in the garage and stare at. Other ’80s Carreras with this mileage sell in the mid-five-figure range, but that is of little relevance to a car like this. Given how much of a standout it was at an auction week packed with Porsches and Porsche people, this price makes sense.

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.
