The 911 Speedster in question is fitted with the Heritage Design Pack, meaning it features big race numbers, GT Silver paintwork and a white front bumper.

The winning bidder can also enjoy one-to-one track experiences with 911 boss Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser and Porsche GT head Andreas Preuninger, and finally, will receive a fancy book detailing the assembly of the final 991.
