We’ve all heard of the elusive government surplus sales. You know the kind: Joe went to this auction and bought a Humvee for $100 and sold it for 20 grand which is why he never showed it to anyone. This morning I received a tip about a real auction here in Ontario, that happens to have a rather interesting item up for bid. A Porsche 911 race car!
The opening bid on this 1975 911 is just $14,000 Canadian. Like many 911 race cars of the era, this one has been converted to look like an RSR and has all the right goodies to be a great club racer or lapping day car.
I’ve never seen this car around Mosport, so who knows where it has been lurking. Of course there is always the question of why the Canadian government has a 911 race car. Perhaps it belonged to a drug dealer or possibly a racer who went bankrupt.
Full details on the auction, which ends tomorrow can be found here.
