Porsche: Legendary 1939 Type 64 up for auction

Perhaps the most significant car in Porsche's history, the 1939 Type 64, will be auctioned in Monterey, California this August. Only three examples were built by the engineers who went on to build Porsche's first mass-produced car, the 356. Of the three built, only the car you see here survived World War 2. In other words, this is a very rare beast.

Rare 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder heading to auction

A rare 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder with a successful racing history will be going under the hammer early next year. Considered one of the most original examples in existence, it is one of only 40 built by the German marque. Chassis 0145 had class wins at Nürburgring, Reims, Zandvoort and was fifth overall at Le Mans. With its small size and 1.5-litre boxer engine, the 550A was nicknamed "giant killer," for its ability to chase down bigger and more powerful race cars.
