💰 The figures shared below don’t count any other sales such as car seats, memorabilia etc… All online auction sites are analyzed to put this leaderboard together.

I only include websites that have sold 5+ cars in the chart below.

Kicked off the week on a major high, racking up sales north of $10.5 million. Honestly, from there, the only direction for those numbers seemed down… Just yesterday, we hit one of our quieter days, barely scraping under the $5 million mark. But hey, that doesn't mean it was all quiet on the sales front. Plus, I've been snooping around the auctions set for the next week, and oh boy, there are some hefty deals on the horizon.

The Best Porsche Ever?

Alright, fellow Vroomers, buckle up because today's auction highlight is a true gem, a masterpiece that's stolen my heart, and I'm betting it'll capture yours too. We're talking about the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS, not just any GT2 RS, but #168 out of the exclusive 500 ever made. This beauty is up for grabs today, and it's not just the specs that make it outstanding—it's the soul of the car.

First off, this Porsche is a testament to what a sports car should be. It’s been driven, really driven, not just cooped up in a garage collecting dust. This car was made to carve corners and command roads, and that’s exactly what it’s been doing. Seeing a machine like this, with its odometer proudly displaying 27k miles, just feels right. It’s lived, breathed, and it’s begging for more.

Now, let’s dive into what makes this car a standout. Those carbon fenders? They’re not just for show—they cut down on weight, making this GT2 RS a lean, mean, driving machine. And the bucket seats, lithium battery, and lightweight headlights? Every piece screams performance and precision. Not to mention, it comes with brand new tires, ready to hit the road running.

This car doesn’t just look good—it’s decked out in Carrara White with a body wrapped in a Modesta ceramic coating, ensuring it turns heads and stands the test of time. And those black 19″ GT2 RS center-lock wheels? Just wow. They perfectly complement the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), setting the standard for what a sports car's performance should be.

The interior is another story altogether, a beautiful tale of black leather and red Alcantara, with carbon-fiber trim just icing on the cake. The serialized plaque inside reminds you, this isn’t just any car—it’s one of a rare breed. And with all the comforts like the Sport Chrono Package Plus, PCM infotainment, and automatic climate control, it’s luxury meeting performance.

And the heart? A twin-turbocharged 3.6L flat-six engine that doesn’t just purr, it roars with 620 horsepower. Paired with a six-speed manual transaxle and a locking differential, it promises an exhilarating drive that few other cars can offer.

Sitting at a current bid of $430,000, it's clear I'm not the only one head over heels for it. The fact it's been driven and cherished means it's priced fairly, even if that's higher than usual—thanks to its special features and the pedigree of 911r’s exceptional care. That test drive alone was unforgettable, see below.

In closing, this 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is a legend in its own time. It’s more than just a car; it’s a piece of automotive history that’s ready to write its next chapter with a lucky new owner. If you’re as in love as I am, today’s the day to make a move. This isn’t just a purchase; it’s an investment in adrenaline, in beauty, in the sheer joy of driving. Don’t miss out!

The Tale Of Two Phantoms

Diving straight into the heart of luxury car drama, we've got a tale of two 2014 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupes that's just too juicy to ignore. Both are pretty much the definition of driving luxury, but here's where it gets spicy: one snagged a hefty $255,000 while its sibling couldn't clinch a deal yesterday at $164,000, despite only a smidge more mileage (6k vs. 18k miles). Makes you scratch your head, right? Sure, a bit more mileage, but should that really swing the price that wildly? I'm not sold.

Let's zoom in on what we're talking about here: sleek black finish, 21" 10-Spoke Alloy Wheels, and that luxurious Creme Light leather interior with black piping. Under the hood roars a 6.75-liter V12 engine, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This isn't just a car; it's a statement on wheels, complete with all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a Rolls—LED Lighting, Park Distance Control, you name it.

Now, without getting too deep into who's selling what, it's clear that both of these beauties were dressed to impress. Yet, one danced away into the sunset with a new owner, and the other… well, didn't. It begs the question: Is it all about the timing? Or maybe, just maybe, it's about where these auctions are happening.

This brings us to the million-dollar question (or in this case, the $255,000 question): Do people have loyalty to one auction platform over another? Because these two were sold on two different sites. It's fascinating to ponder whether the platform itself can sway a sale. So, what do you think, Vroomers? Is platform loyalty a thing?
