These pricey Porsches show why buying limited production models to flip for profit would be appealing.

In the lead-up to RM Sotheby's Villa Erba sale, the auction house revealed it had some pretty amazing machines lined up. Among them was a 1993 Porsche 993 RSR 3.8 that was only ever driven 6 miles. Three of this generation's most potent hypercars also were slated to go across the block: a Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach, a McLaren P1 GTR, and a Ferrari LaFerrari. Interestingly, only two of these four cars sold, but they went for hefty sums.



The almost-never-used 911 RSR went for a whopping $2,254,492. The Porsche 918 Spyder was sold for $1,628,244. The RSR fit right in with RM Sotheby's estimate, while the 918 exceeded the estimate by about $100,000. Both Porsches also ranked among the 10 top selling cars at the Villa Erba auction, with the RSR selling for the third highest amount behind a pair of pre-war French cars, and the 918 was fifth highest.



These pricey Porsches also show why buying limited production models to flip for profit would be appealing, which is an issue that Porsche is currently trying to resolve. Fortunately for Porsche these cars likely weren't bought for profit making. The RSR was owned for many years before being sold, and the owner of the 918 managed to put on an impressive 6,800 miles before selling.
