Item Details


  • Seller: vo152
  • Location: United Kingdom PH3 1RA
  • Lot #: M-0030315-DT

Available for auction is an Illuminated Porsche sign. According to the seller, this sign originated from an official Porsche showroom in England and dates back to the early 1990s.



The sign measures approximately 48" x 11" with a depth of 4". Internal illumination comes from fluorescent lighting powered by a UK plug.



The lighting is stated to be in excellent working condition. The sign is meant to be suspended from the ceiling and the original mounting supports are present and intact, though the original chains/supporting cords are not present. The sign is mounted inside a very well-constructed aluminum housing with a polished aluminum outer edge.



The seller states there are minor age-related markings in the form of light scratches to the aluminum casing but it is exceptionally good considering its age. The buyer is responsible for shipping, handling, and fees.

    @Craignyc Good morning and thank you for the question.

    The UK plug is 220v and if the sign was to be used in Europe all that would be required is to change the plug itself to a European version.

    If the sign was to be used in the U.S.A. it would require a voltage converter due to the difference in operating voltage (110v in U.S.A.). These small devices are approximately $50 to $100 on average I believe.

    Alternatively the power supply could be converted by a qualified electrician or someone with knowledge of such systems. Another alternative would be to use LED lighting if desired.

    Thank you once again for getting in touch and if I can help further please just let me know.

    Is the UK plug 120 or 220v?

    Good evening everyone and thank you for viewing this auction.

    I would just like first of all apologize to the bidders and the watchers for my rather late introduction.

    I wish to thank @Balti_J (nice to see you again) and @Alfadriver for the bids you have placed - thank you.

    I also would like to let everyone know that worldwide shipping of this sign is available. As of yet I have not had the opportunity to package it but I would like to at least provide some estimates below for reference:

    UK - £120
    Europe - €200
    USA - $300

    As these are conservative estimates, there is every chance the price of shipping could be a little higher or indeed a little lower. I always use UPS for the delivery of the signs and I have come to find that the weight and value rarely makes a huge difference (if any) on the shipping cost - it is predominantly the size. I want to make sure the signs are well protected and until I have the sign fully packaged I am doing my best to give an indication of what to sort of price to expect.

    I also wish to let everyone know that I do not charge for the packaging or anything like that. I have a sufficient supply of packaging material at my disposal and I would only be charging for the actual shipping cost with UPS.

    If anyone has any questions then please do not hesitate to ask and I will do my very best to respond in a timely manner.

    In the meantime I would like to once again thank everyone who is interested in this sign and I wish you all the very best in the auction.

    Kind regards
