Chassis no. WP0AC2965RS480410. Black over black leather. 3601/355hp, 5-speed, Speedline wheels, Bridgestone Potenza tires, sunroof, power windows, air conditioning, factory cassette stereo, Porsche CoA.

Evaluation: Used in the 1995 film “Bad Boys”. Director Michael Bay’s personal car before the film. He used it in the movie since there was no budget to rent a car and Porsche didn’t want to support the film. Afterward, Bay sold it to producer Pat Sandstone. It received unspecified restoration work in 2006 but was show-prepped by Road Scholars in 2020.

Presents like a well-detailed and low-ish-mileage (34,396 on the odometer) modern 911 and that alone makes it desirable, but much of this car’s value is in its screen time.

Bottom Line: If this car had just been a “regular” old 1994 964 Turbo it might be worth a quarter-million dollars, but famous movie cars are a proven hot commodity. That is as much the case now as it has ever been. Keep in mind the $1.98M Porsche 928 from Risky Business or the $550,000 Supra from The Fast and the Furious sold last year. And of course we can’t forget the $3.74M Mustang from Bullitt, can we?

Now, Martin Lawrence may not be Steve McQueen, but the chase scenes in Bad Boys sparked a Porsche passion for enthusiasts of a certain age and that counts for a lot, in this case $1.43M. McQueen, by the way, also had a 911 Turbo. Mecum sold it in 2015 for $1.95M.

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.
