1961 Porsche Sells for $1.705 Million

At the recent Gooding & Company auction in Amelia Island, Florida, a 1961 Porsche RS61 Spyder sold for a whopping $1.705 million dollars. Pre-auction estimates listed a value between $1.2 and $1.5 million, but the car attracted the attention of Sir Stirling Moss, who was determined to not let it slip through his grasp.

Moss, considered by many to be one of the finest drivers of his time, campaigned a very similar car in the early 1960s and has been looking for a pristine example for several years. The RS61 purchased was virtually flawless; despite the steep price paid, the car should prove to be worth the investment.
