1955 Porsche 550 Spyder Sells For Record $3.685 million

A 1955 Porsche 550/1500 RS Spyder sold for an amazing $3.685 million at yesterday afternoon's Gooding & Co. Amelia Island auction setting a new record price for a Porsche 550.

This beautifully restored example of Porsche's legendary air-cooled race car was advertised as "one of the most genuine 550s in existence". It was clear at least two bidders agreed when the car was hammered sold for $3.35 million dollars ($3.685 million with buyer's fees).

This record sale price certainly means somewhere there is an ecstatic former vintage Porsche owner considering the pre-auction estimate for this 550 Spyder was $2.2-$2.6 million.
