You Can Buy Steve McQueen's Last Porsche

Illustration for article titled You Can Buy Steve McQueens Last Porsche

If you’re lucky enough to own one of Steve McQueen’s personalized Porsches, you’d be crazy to sell it. But that’s exactly what California’s Mike Regalia is doing later this summer.

Regalia is auctioning off McQueen’s special-order Porsche Turbo 930 from August 13-15 at the Mecum Daytime Auction in Monterey. Did you write that down? Go get a piece of paper. I’ll wait.

McQueen’s car has a lot of cool features, include a switch on the dashboard to turn off the car’s rear lights and a personalized “MCQN930” license plate. Regalia told USA Today the car is “equipped with a non-intercooled 3 liter engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, producing 234 horsepower.” He says he bought the car relatively cheaply in 2008 when 930 Turbos were “tremendously undervalued cars.”

As a quick reminder, McQueen’s Porsche 911T fetched a winning bid of $1.25 million.

You can hear Regalia talk about this Porsche right here.

Steve McQueen. The. Man. Nothing to do with this car, but I have a great personal story about him. My father shipped out for Vietnam from San Francisco International in early 1968 one of days the climax scene from Bullitt was being filmed there. My dad was penned off with hundreds of other soldiers, mainly for their own protection at a time and in a place where service members couldn’t be less respected.

According to my dad, McQueen personally stopped production for close to two hours to chat and shake hands with every single GI waiting to head overseas, almost all to see combat very soon. That any star would or could do this—but especially in 1968 San Francisco!—amazes me to this day.

Legendary actor and great American. I would cherish this car if I could afford it.
