First off, the very last 991 generation Porsche 911 Speedster will be the premier piece. Along with it, Porsche is including a limited-edition Porsche Design timepiece, behind-the-scenes tour of Porsche AG’s vehicle testing facility and track in Weissach, Germany, and more.

“We are all profoundly affected by the current situation and the immediate impact it’s having on those most at risk in our communities,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. “United Way continues to step up to the plate and their response to this crisis has been quite impressive. So we are proud to do our part. I also appreciate the swift support of RM Sotheby’s to make this possible and I am hopeful that the sale of a very special Porsche will help in a small way.”

The 911 Speedster features the Heritage Design package and is one of 1,948 examples. The car boasts a 4.0L flax six engine with 502 horsepower and is coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox. The Speedster is finished in GT Silver Metallic paint and only shows 20 delivery miles on the clock.

Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President, 911 and 718 Product Lines, commented: “Not only does this mark the end of what, for me, was a special era but it’s especially rewarding that the last car to reach the end of the line should be the ultimate – the Speedster combined everything we learned and is the 991 in its purest form. I hope this really unique car can make a big difference to those who need help right now – and that the fortunate buyer enjoys it and drives it as we always intended.”
