one-of-a-kind porsche inspired by cars movie sells for insane price

The one-off Porsche 911 Sally Special sold for a record US$3.6 million (R61 million) to a mystery telephone bidder at RM Sotheby’s Monterey Auction this past Saturday, 20 August.

Every cent of this sales price will be donated to Girls Inc. and USA for UNHCR to support children and families, said Porsche.

911 Sally Special

The 911 Sally Special got its inspiration from Sally Carrera, the 2002 996-generation Porsche 911 Carrera featured in the animated Cars movies.

Like in the films, there is only one 911 Sally Special in existence and it’s also “the first time that Pixar has supported such a project,” said Porsche.

The endeavour began in November 2021 and saw original Cars cast members work alongside Porsche designers to create this special sports car.

The result is a 2022 992-generation Carrera GTS equipped with a seven-speed manual gearbox, “tapping into Sally Carrera’s passion for driving,” said the designers.

This rear-wheel-drive 911 puts out 353kW and 570Nm from its 3.0-litre, six-cylinder, turbocharged boxer engine capable of sending the coupe to 100km/h in 4.1 seconds and to a top speed of 311km/h

Sally Special is also hand-painted in Sallybluemetallic, a custom paint created specifically for this one-off, and the five-arm design rims – 20 inches at the front and 21 at the rear – create a visual link to the wheels fitted to the 996-generation 911.

Even Sally Carrera’s tattoo from the movie has been recreated on the 911’s active spoiler, proving to be “a very special challenge” for the Porsche designers.

The interior continues the unique look with Sallybluemetallic highlights, a specially-made “Pepita houndstooth” fabric upholstery in three colours combined with chalk-coloured leather, and Speed Blue stitching.

Moreover, small easter eggs remind passengers of where the idea for the Sally Special came from, including a one-of-one engraving on the dash, a Cars logo on the door panel, a “Kachow Mode” drive mode selector on the steering wheel, steel Sally Special treadplates, a Sally Carrera plaque on the B-pillar, and Cars-branded tyre valve caps.

The 911 Sally Special is accompanied by another Porsche one-off creation, too, in the form of a Porsche Design mechanical chronograph wristwatch.

Like the coupe, the watch sees Sallybluemetallic finishes with a chalk-coloured leather strap with Speed Blue stitching, with a secondary Speed Blue strap with chalk-coloured stitching also included.
