‘First’ Porsche Heads to Auction
Ferdinand Porsche, renowned for the creation of the Volkswagen Beetle is said to have designed this 1930’s Porsche Type 64. It is said that only three ever made, with this staking claim as the very ‘first’ Porsche. RM Sotheby’s intends on auctioning this very example in Monterey, California shortly at an undermined price.

The Porsche Type 64 wasn’t a performance stunner (like their current models), and as a first used a modified Volkswagen air-cooled engine producing 40 hp with an estimated top speed of 145 km/h.
While performance plays a part, the authenticity and the cars claim as the ‘first’ ever Porsche is sure to strike a chord with many a collector. We look forward to updating you with details once the price has been disclosed and the car has been shipped to its new home.
