1964 Porsche 901 Cabriolet Prototype

The Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars of all time. Before it was the 911, though, it was called the 901. This 1964 Porsche 901 Cabriolet Prototype was one of just 13 pre-production models produced, and the only one to be built as a drop-top. This exact specimen served as the base for the beloved 911 Targa, is the second oldest surviving 901/911 chassis, and is one of just two pre-production 901s still in existence. As a result, it's not only an exceeding rare piece of Porsche history, but a rare piece of motoring history, period.

  • 1971 Alfa Romeo Giulia

    You might be wondering how such a well-preserved racer could be this cheap. That's because it's a replica. This 1971 Alfa Romeo Giulia is a near exact copy, built out of a regular model by the same owner in order to preserve the original. It has its FIA papers for hill-climb racing, can also be used in vintage car rallies, and has just 36,828 miles on the odometer, making it ideal not just for car shows, but for actual driving, as well.

  • Jaguar XKSS

    Obviously classic, yet completely brand new. The Jaguar XKSS is being reborn by Jaguar Classic in a limited run that replaces the "lost" cars that burnt up in a fire at the company's Coventry plant in February 1957. This isn't just an old body bolted onto a current production chassis, either. Each of the nine cars is being built by hand to the exact same specifications as the 16 examples completed before the conflagration. To prove their commitment, a one-off has been completed and is on display at LA's Petersen Museum ahead of the nine production cars slated for delivery next year. Fully certified by Jaguar, it's the rare chance to experience something nearly 60 years old, as it was when it was brand new.
