All-White Porsche Collection in Secret Location Is Headed to Auction

The White Collection, one of the rarest gatherings of Porsches, is shrouded in mystery, not to mention unique Porsche collections is going up for auction this December, featuring 56 cars all painted white, announced by auction house RM Sotheby’s. The auction is scheduled for December 1 and 2.

The two-day auction will take place in a warehouse described by the auctioneer as a “Porsche sanctuary.”  Located in Houston, Texas, the venue is fittingly white, complete with white walls, floors and furniture. Visitors must wear socks or protective booties upon entry. Sotheby’s says how the collection “represents over a decade of dedicated collecting by one perfection-focused owner.” In total, the collection is made up of 63 vehicles, including 56 Porsche sports cars all painted white, plus two Porsche tractors and what’s described as “an encyclopedic array” of Porsche memorabilia, all kept in mint condition and totaling over 500 lots.

The highlight of the collection is an entirely unique example of the company’s modern-day hypercar, the 2015 918 Spyder. Outfitted with the weight-saving Weissach package, the 875 hp speed machine is finished in paint-to-sample Grand Prix White. It’s expected to fetch between $2.5 million to $3 million. Two Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7s will also be included in the sale, with a 1973 Lightweight model estimated to sell for up to $2 million. Meanwhile, a 1973 Touring acquired by the collector in 2012 could fetch up to $1.2 million.

And for between $1.5 million and $2 million, a 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S X85 “Flat-Nose,” one of only 39 examples built for the U.S. market that year, will hit the auction block. The model, which only contains 39 recorded miles, was acquired by the White Collection’s secretive owner in 2016.

The auction also includes several models of Porsche 356, a 2019 911 GTS RS with Weissach pack, a 2016 911 R guided at $700,000 to $800,000, a 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic, a 2016 GT3 RS and a 914/6 from 1970. For those with less deep pockets, the most affordable car in the collection is a 1990 944 S2 Cabriolet, which is guided at $40,000 to $60,000.  The auction also includes a pair of bright red Porsche-Diesel Junior tractors, guided at $50,000 to $75,000 each.

The auction will also contain furniture, watches, prints, luggage and vintage memorabilia like a 1990s Porsche dealership display sign and a 1967 Porsche Rallye Monte Carlo poster.
