A 911 GTS based on Sally Carrera from Pixar’s Cars franchise was unveiled by Porsche a week ago, and it may be the most out-of-the-ordinary Sonderwunsch one-off project ever undertaken by Porsche. There is no longer any doubt as to the true market value of a Cars vehicle. Last night at the RM Sotheby’s auction in Monterey, the Sally Carrera GTS went for $3.6 million.
That’s over twenty-four times the price of the least expensive 911 GTS from the 992 generation. Understand that this is not your average 911 GTS. The car’s wide range of one-of-a-kind design elements are the result of a partnership between Sunderwunsch and the creators of the Sally Carrera character. Particularly striking is the updated version of the Turbo Twist wheels featured on the original Sally Carrera, which date back to the 996 generation. The color scheme is authentic, as are details like the pinstripe “tattoo” decal and the exterior-grade blue moldings. Even the drive mode select button on the steering wheel has been replaced with one labeled “Kachow!”
Porsche says proceeds will go to Girls Inc., an organization that helps underprivileged girls get an education, and to USA for UNHCR, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Spectacular demand for unique Porsches and the animated film Cars should result in sizable financial investments for both.
