Item Details


  • Seller: MILESAHEADPORSCHE
  • Location: Beverly Hills, California 90210
  • Lot #: M-0028551

Available for auction is this special rare, large-scale illuminated Porsche dealership (7) letter set. This authentic Porsche dealership sign measures approximately 20 feet in total length and will make an impressive visual impact on any high-end private collection, "Man Cave" or Garage.



Each of these Porsche letters measures approximately 30" inches wide by 15" inches tall and 5" in thickness totaling 20 feet in length. According to the seller, this particular sign came available from a famed Northern California Porsche dealership just north of San Francisco.



All signage in California had to comply with Senate Bill 100 to meet the State of California's clean energy mandate and regulations. Porsche dealerships statewide had to meet compliance requirements in order to receive their city, county, and state sign permits. Throughout California, new SB 100-compliant replacement signage was installed at all Porsche dealerships.



In its full restoration, the sign was required to be converted to the California Clean Energy (SB 100) specifications. This was done utilizing state of California-approved LED lighting. Each letter is fully restored and reconstructed of a Porsche silver-gray finished metal case capped with German UV protectant red plastic.

All dealership signage signs are supposed to be dismantled and destroyed when removed, as required by Porsche, however, because these rare artifacts are highly prized and coveted as collectibles, several of these precious and rare signs have slipped through the cracks and ended up in private hands. Authentic Porsche dealership signage almost never comes onto the open market out of private collectors' hands. Don’t miss out on this rare and unique opportunity to own an authentic piece of Porsche history. The buyer is responsible for shipping, handling, and fees.

    With a less than an 30 mins. to go before the close of this auction I'd like to thank...
    the following bidders.

    @Boattail who Bid in the amount of $2,275.

    @tcmiami305 who Bid in the amount of $2,000, 2,200 and $2,300.
    also...
    @merediad who Bid in the amount of $2,109 and $2,250 respectively.
    ALL OF YOUR BIDS ARE APPRECHATED!
    (I can't disclose the RESERVE [per Pcar Market rules] but it's safe to say that currently the auction is very far from that halcyon reserved mark)

    I expect the bidding to become much more robust in the closing moments and...
    I encourage you to BID TO WIN!
    And BID AGRESSIVELY!

    It's unlikely, that a PORSCHE sign of this magnitude will ever come to market again.
    Most all of the California PORSCHE Dealerships signs are now in SB 100 compliance and many of these vaunted and highly desirable signs were very sadly (and shockingly) dismantled and destroyed. (as required by PORSCHE)

    To the winner of this incredible PORSCHE signage goes one of the most impressive and fascinating artifacts that any Porsche collector could ever hope to attain.
    Not only is it of the highest scale of Porsche collectability and rarity.
    It is the kind of PORSCHE artifact that defies logic and is about as elite a piece of PORSCHE history any Porsche Collector could have a chance to add to their collection.
    IT'S NOT FOR EVERY PORSCHE COLLECTOR...
    but a very small cadre of Porsche collectors, mancave owners, shop owners, and Porsche enthusiast around the globe that have laid claim of ownership to such stellar forbidden PORSCHE fruit.
    FOR THE PORSCHE COLLECTOR WHO HAS EVERYTHING...
    (except for this)
    Thank you again for all of your bids and good luck to all you.
    GO FOR THE GUSTO!
    MAKE THAT MOVE!
    GO FOR IT!
    WIN BIG!
    SET YOUR PORSCHE COLLECTION APART FROM ALL THE REST!

    @merediad What a detailed and good question @merediad thank you for addressing this.
    In photo number #4 the RED LENSES are affixed on the "P & O" of the PORSCHE sign.
    The "SCHE" DO NOT have the RED lensed covering affixed on them so that you can see the inner LED workings of the sign and that all are in perfect working order and illuminate stunningly. Interestingly to note, the restored PORSCHE signage glows exactly with the same lumens as the old ballasted neon tubing.
    I assure you that ALL of the PORSCHE letters illuminates evenly and fully with a great glow and high brilliance that is just stunning in detail.
    I will add photos of the old Neon tubbing so you can see the difference in the old versus the new SB 100 California (CLEAN ENEGRY) specification LED lighting.
    Thanks again for your great question @merediad and I look forward to seeing your bid on this high luxe and rare PORSCHE artifact.

    @merediad Sorry auto correct got me I meant fully red as in the P and O, not ready

  • merediad (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @milesaheadporsche in looking at picture 4 it appears the “R S C H E” are all differently lit than the “P O.” Can you confirm whether the letters appear fully ready as in the P and O vs. seeing individual LEDs as in the R, S, C H and E?

    Also, any idea what shipping would be to the DC area?

    Thanks

    @Killerbs54 That's a great question.
    But no...
    There's not any kind of dealer documentation or certification of the signs Dealership origin.
    (that's not something the Dealership would do or offer to anyone)
    Most especially, given that the signs are supposed to be dismantled & destroyed upon their removal...
    (as PORSCHE requires) there no "Certificate of Origin" or any kind of "documentation" for the sign.
    Also, I just added a new photo to the gallery that you many find of interest...
    Thank you for your great question and I look forward to seeing your bid for this dynamic PORSCHE sign.

    First, I'd like to thank you and all of my previous bidders of my past auctions here on Pcar Market.
    I'd like to ask for your attention and interest on this incredible gigantic (20 foot wide) authentic vintage PORSCHE DEALERSHIP signage.
    Like most rare and highly collectable prized items in the collector space...
    it is only an "inside connection" makes this offering possible.

    It is a rare unique PORSCHE artifact that won't ever likely to seen on the open Porsche collector marketplace.
    And inasmuch as the past 2 years have seen a few of these actual Porsche Dealer signs to have exchanged hands in the private collector market...
    THE END IS NEAR.
    The portal for possible acquisition of these rare Porsche artifacts is quickly closing on the handful of authentic CALIFORNIA PORSCHE DEALERSHIP SIGNS.

    It's so choice and impressive!
    Painstakingly to a high detail, fully restored, and 100% operational.
    It's large awe inspiring 20 foot size, will make an incredible addition to any high-end Porsche collection and as the values continue to rise and scarcity rising right along with it, this is surely a LAST CHANCE opportunity indeed for the sophisticated PORSCHE Collector who has EVERYTHING (except this!)

    Don't miss out on what is probably the very last authentic California PORSCHE dealership signage in the world today.
    I'd like to thank all of the bidders in advance .
    Please don't hesitate to contact me as I'm available for any questions during the course of the auction.
    BID AGRESSIVELY!
    BID TO WIN!
    THANK YOU TO ALL!
