Condition & Features

Vehicle to be offered WITHOUT RESERVE and SOLD to the highest bidder August 18 – 20th, at Russo and Steele\’s 11th Annual \”Sports & Muscle at The Marriott\” in Downtown Monterey, California. Please contact us for more information. This is the historic Porsche raced by Gary Auberlen and his son Bill Auberlen (Rolex GT & DP). It raced 43 events in the IMSA (International Motorsports Assoc.) series between 1979 and 1990. Its most significant wins were a 1st place at the 12-hrs of Sebring (GTU) in 1985, and 2nd at the 24-hrs. of Daytona (GTU) in 1988. The car is best known for its 1984-1990 period under the SP Racing banner, where it first raced at the 1984 six-hour event at Riverside, with Gary Auberlen and Peter Jauker driving. The team continued in GTO (over 2.5-liters) for the remainder of the 1984 season then switched to GTU (under 2.5-liters) for 1985.

A second-place class finish was achieved at the 1988 24-Hours of Daytona, but by 1990, in spite of a larger engine and a 935-style “slant-nose” front end, the little privateer Porsche was no longer competitive against the big-budget, factory-sponsored racing teams. After an impressive 11-year run in the IMSA GT series, the car was finally retired. It was purchased by a collector based in Europe and put into storage until 2006 when it was acquired by the current owner, having remained in virtually the same condition as the day it last raced. Along with noted Porsche shops Gunnar Racing and Klupsport racing in West Palm Beach, FL, undertook a mild restoration to bring it back to it\’s Sebring-winning configuration. The car\’s mechanical systems were overhauled and the exterior was brought back to it\’s
