Porsche’s “Sally Carrera” One-Off Sold for $36 million

That 911 GTS would cost a lot of money.

A 911 GTS based on Sally Carrera, a character from Pixar’s Cars franchise, was unveiled by Porsche a week ago, and it may be the most bizarre project in the company’s Sonderwunsch one-off team’s history. The true market value of a Cars vehicle has finally been determined. In last night’s RM Sotheby’s auction in Monterey, the Sally Carrera GTS fetched $3.6 million.

That’s over twenty-four times the price of the least expensive 911 GTS from the 992 generation. This isn’t just any 911 GTS, of course. The vehicle’s wide range of distinctive details are the result of a partnership between Sunderwunsch and the creators of the Sally Carrera character. The most striking feature is the updated version of the Turbo Twist wheels from the 996 series that the original Sally Carrera used. The color, pinstripe “tattoo” decal, and blue exterior trim are all authentic to the original character. An entirely new “Kachow! mode” button, labeled “drive select,” has been added to the steering wheel.

According to Porsche, the 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. It’s expected that the production budgets for both one-off Porsches and the movie Cars will increase significantly due to the high levels of public interest in both.
