A unique collection of 56 white Porsches will be sold at auction.

The extraordinary collection of the vehicle collector, known as “The White Collection,” was shown by RM Sotheby’s on Tuesday. The dates of the auction are December 1 and 2.

The collection “represents over a decade of dedicated collecting by one perfection-focused owner,” according to RM Sotheby’s. As of the time of publication, the auction’s total price was unknown.

The name of the owner was kept a secret by the auction company. According to Barron’s, which quoted the auction house, the auction is anticipated to take place in the collector’s “Porsche sanctuary” in Houston, Texas.

The collection’s vehicles have starting bids of $40,000, with the majority costing in the range of $200,000.

According to RM Sotheby’s estimations, a “2015 918 Spyder” — referred to as the “crown jewel” of the collection — might fetch $2.5 to $3 million at auction.

This unique model, which is painted Grand Prix White and sells for more over $1 million according to RM Sotheby’s, was only produced in 918 units by Porsche.

The auction house also listed five further vehicles for seven-figure prices. A rare 1997 Porsche 911 GT2 is anticipated to sell for between $2 and $2.2 million, and a 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 was priced at $2 to $2.5 million.

“The White Collection” is not the only collection of rare automobiles to go up for sale recently.

In August, RM Sotheby’s sold the rusted remains of a Ferrari 500 Mondial Spider Series I for $1.9 million. According to Ferrari historian Andreas Birner, the restoration of the vehicle could cost up to $2 million.

Rare and spectacular lots are nothing new to RM Sotheby’s. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the auction house established the record for the most expensive vehicle sold at auction; a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe sold for $142.3 million in 2022.
