A one-off 1966 Porsche 911 Spyder designed by Bertone is to be auctioned. This unique Porsche 911 marked the only occasion on which Bertone and the German company co-operated.
BERTONE’S PORSCHE 911 UNDER THE HAMMER
In 1966, California-based dealer John von Neumann asked Italian designer Nuccio Bertone to create a new Porsche 911-based convertible. The prototype was displayed at the 1966 Geneva Show but it had no production future, since Porsche decided to produce the 911 Targa instead.
This is the sole example ever built and is being offered for sale for the first time in almost 25 years. It’s being auctioned by Gooding Pebble Beach and the sale estimate is $700,000 to $1,000,000.
