Can-Am Champion L&M 917/10 Headlines Largest Porsche Offering on the Peninsula

Walworth, Wis., July 27, 2012 - Mecum Auctions will be offering an incredible assemblage of more than 40 prize Porsches during the 4th annual Mecum Monterey Daytime Auction, August 16-18, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa on Del Monte Golf course. In addition to the famed 1972 Can-Am Champion L&M 917/10 Spyder (Lot S123), this largest single auction offering of Porsches during the Monterey Vintage Week includes a number of other historically significant racing Porsches from the comprehensive Steve Goldin Collection.



Excitement is building around the premier offering of what is perhaps the most recognizable Porsche 917 in the world. The Penske Racing-prepared L&M 917/10 Spyder occupies a special position in racing history as the car that earned Porsche its first Can-Am Championship, once again demonstrating the German automaker’s formidable engineering capabilities and its pioneering developments in turbocharging. It is without doubt one of the most significant cars in all of racing history.



Seven historic Porsches from the Steve Goldin Collection will be offered on Saturday, August 18. Ranging from Al Holbert’s 1973 911S personal daily driver (Lot S114) to Bob Akin’s famous Sebring-winning 1986 962 (Lot S113), these world-beating machines span fifteen years of Porsche racing glory around the globe, their collective heritage also tied to other legendary champions of the marque - Hurley Haywood, Emerson Fittipaldi, the Kremer Brothers, Rolf Stommelen and Bobby Rahal, to name but a few.
                                                                                                                                                                                          
Of course, Porsche is not just about racing, as the Monterey Daytime Auction’s vast array of fabulous road-going Porsches attests. There is something to fulfill every collector’s desire; the lasting appeal of cars such as Lot F132, a meticulously restored and documented 1957 356 Speedster; the quick, nimble and extremely rare 1973 911 Carrera RS Lightweight (Lot S157); the exhilarating power of the Le Mans-inspired 650 HP 2005 Carrera GT (Lot S156). Together this offering of Porsche’s finest is characterized by superb quality and extensive documentation, in many cases including a factory-issued Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

The complete lineup of rare collector Porsches, including histories and vehicle specifications, is available for perusal at www.MECUM.com.
