Available for auction is a rare Porsche Motorsport showroom display. This display consists of three genuine and extremely rare large individual Porsche showroom signs. Each depicts a legendary winning Porsche 962 race car in full motorsport livery. The display measures approximately 4ft in height by approximately 40" wide each. Individually, each sign weighs approximately 13 lbs. According to the seller, the signs are constructed from durable plastic. They are all stated to be in exceptionally good condition considering they are from the late 1980s and were displayed in the Porsche showroom.
The first image depicts the number 14 Holbert Racing Löwenbräu 962 at Watkins Glen.
The second image depicts the number 17 Team Porsche AG Shell/Dunlop 962 at the Norisring racecourse in Nuremberg, Germany in 1987.
The third image depicts the number 17 Rothmans Racing Porsche 962 at Le Mans in 1987.
Each sign has mounting support holes to allow the signs to either be hung on a wall or suspended from the ceiling. Don't miss your opportunity to own an authentic Porsche showroom display. The buyer is responsible for shipping, handling, and fees.

@ Killerbs54 I just wanted to say thank you for your bid and it is nice to see you again.
@audipwr1 Good evening and thank you for the message. To be completely candid with you, you are absolutely right. An exact cost of shipping should have been acquired so that everyone knows what to expect. It has been a lack of time that has resulted in this for which I sincerely apologise to you and everyone who is interested.
The problem I have (which helps no one) is the amount of things I have going on at the moment. Again, being up front with you and everyone else I probably should have waited before submitting these lots. The photographs of these signs currently on auction were taken in January of this year and it has literally taken me this long to sit down with no distractions and compose the lot submissions. If anything I am my own worst enemy.
There is in excess of 1,000 different items (large, small and all in between) that I have the responsibility of now disposing and I am conscious of how long it is taking for me to retrieve an item, photograph and video the lot, check back on my Father’s notes, upload photographs, write the advert and then onto the next one. If any of the items do sell I find myself working throughout the night to package them as that is the only personal time I have as I work 7 days a week at present.
I genuinely don’t believe the signs will cost $1,000 to ship as the size of the package will not be in the region that would justify that. Anything over 100cm attracts a ‘bulk’ fee I have discovered but that does not instantly constitute an excessive price. UPS have been decent and it’s not really the weight that matters, just the overall size of the package. Thankfully these signs are quite thin.
I am genuinely sorry I can not give you an exact answer to your question which is rather incompetent of me but I have laid bare the honest situation I am in. If the signs do reach the deal tank and you or anyone else would like exact clarity as to the shipping price then I will most certainly package the signs and obtain an exact quote for you.
Would be helpful to have a more firm shipping quote to the US. Can you just lock a rate? I could see these being 200 or I could see them being 1000

Hello everyone and thank you for viewing this auction.
First of all I would like to thank @ethanpotato1212 for the bid that you have placed (nice to see you again).
Unfortunately I have a relative in hospital at the moment and an overload of commitments and I do sincerely apologize to everyone for my late introduction and for the lack of information regarding shipping.
I just want to let everyone know that worldwide shipping of this sign is available. As of yet I have not packaged the sign as it is currently in storage, however I have listed below an estimated cost of the shipping based on the dimensions:
UK - £80
Europe - €180
U.S.A. - $200
The weight of these sign boards is quite significant. Individually they are fairly easy to move but they are very substantial. The price above is just an estimate and may vary slightly (possibly less and possibly a little more). I am always keen to make sure items are very well packaged and as a result the shipping estimation may change slightly. For these boards I would feel much more comfortable using a rigid backing to help avoid the signs bending while in transit. I always use UPS and each item is fully insured against damage or loss. Furthermore, I do not charge for the actual packaging of the items as I have an abundance of packaging material in storage. The only cost would be for the actual courier itself.
If anyone has any questions please just let me know. Due to my current working and personal commitments and the time zone difference, there may be a slight delay in my response. However, I will always reply to any message as soon as I can.
I want to thank @ethanpotato1212 once again for the interest you have shown and I wish you all the very best of success in the auction.
