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.
