The anonymous owner of the mysterious collection of white Porsche is far from the only enthusiast who likes sports cars in that color.
A lovingly compiled assortment of some of the German marque’s greatest models proved to be a huge hit earlier this month, according to The Drive. The two-day auction of over 50 cars sold for more than a combined $30 million.

The “White Collection” was put together by an unnamed Texas-based Porsche lover. The collector’s identity wasn’t the only thing that has been kept secret. So was the exact location in the Lone Star state of where the cars were stored, despite it having been the subject of Porsche Club of America video in 2018. The only things we knew for certain were that the owner loved the color white and that after a decade with the vehicles they were ready to part ways with them.
As hard as it may have been to sell the cars, it appears to have been a good one—or at least a financially prudent one. The Drive reports that the entire collection of 56 cars, along with loads of Porsche-related ephemera and memorabilia, brought in $30.5 million. Additionally, individual price records for the 918 Spyder, 2016 911 R and 991.2 GT2 RS were also broken during the event.
The star of the auction, unsurprisingly, was the 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder. The completely unique example is finished in paint-to-sample Grand Prix White and is outfitted with the lightweight Weissach package. The car was expected to sell for between $2.5 million and $3 million and ended up going for $3.9 million, or 30 percent more than the high estimate.
Six additional Porsches from the collection sold for seven figures. A 1997 Porsche 911 GT2 that was one of 17 originally delivered to Japan and the final 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 both sold for over $2 million. The least expensive sports car from the collection, a 1977 Porsche 924 “Martini Championship Edition,” sold for $29,120. The biggest surprise, though, might be that a rare 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.0 with gold graphics. It’s still available to buy through the auction house, though, if you’re feeling like you missed out.
