With $900,000, you could buy a pretty nice apartment or house virtually anywhere in the world. Alternatively, you could buy a classic Porsche and just wait for prices to rise and walk away with a healthy profit. We like the second option.
For those in the market for a near million-dollar Porsche, there are a variety of options, none more appealing than the iconic 911 Carrera RS and the Carrera GT supercar, both of which you can view below.
Starting with the 911 Carrera RS in question, it is a 1973 model and has a Buy It Now price on eBay of $890,900. The car started out life with an Austrian enthusiast before being sold in October 1974. The car was then owned by a collector for five years before it was purchased in 1979 by Rainer Roth.
During Roth’s 23-year ownership, the car underwent a complete restoration thanks to Porsche Austria and was happily driven until 1995. In 2002, the car made itself to the United States and seven years later, went through another ground-up restoration, this time handled by Gunner Porsche Racing.
The car is being sold with a Certificate of Authenticity, all of its documents and books, import documentation, restoration photographers and Austrian registration.
While the 911 Carrera RS is bound to keep increasing in value, spending almost a million dollars on a 911 probably isn’t an appealing prospect to all car collectors. That’s where this 2005 Carrera GT comes in.
Priced at $899,900 on eBay, it is one of just 100 units painted in Porsche’s famous Guards Red. It also has just 2738 miles (4406 km) on the clock and is just begging for a new home.
The paint appears to be in excellent condition, as does the interior. Speaking of the cabin, it is finished in dark grey leather and includes a number of exposed carbon fiber parts, including the shift knob. Like the 911 Carrera RS, it’s bound to be a good investment as long as it is kept in showroom condition.
If you had $900,000, which would you choose?
