It’s time for Round 2 of the 2020 automobile auctions, during which we learn whether Monterey 2019 and Arizona 2020 were just blips or were full-on warnings of unpleasantness ahead. In advance of the weekend, it seemed some caution already was on display with just 47 Porsches offered from the three houses: seven from Bonhams; 24 from David Gooding & Company, and 16 from RM Sotheby’s. We reserved comments on estimates and reserves when we first published this list though just scanning the three highest value offerings, a Typ 934 with Gooding, and Carrera GT and a Typ 959 at RM, these sale prices – remember, these are the auctioneer’s hammer price, not the total with fees added – reflect numbers from five years ago, and, as we said initially, probably are right about where they belong, at least among public exchanges.

As we usually do, we have our report on the results of these auctions in our issue of Road Scholars Insights after the Amelia weekend has finished. If you went, we hope you enjoyed an always-fabulous weekend. With Roger Penske as Concours honoree and more than 40 of his racing cars on display, you must have experienced near overdose. Our congratulations to Rob Kauffman for winning the Best in Show Concours de Sport with his 1973 Porsche Typ 917-30 Can-Am Spyder.
