For auto enthusiasts who collect vehicles, rarity is an important factor to consider, as it determines a vehicle’s worth. The scarcer the machine, the more expensive it becomes and the more likely it is to appreciate significantly in the years to come.

One-off cars are the most scarce ones in the market, but they often lack some historical significance. So collectors look for special units that are superior in value.

This 1978 Porsche is an extraordinary car made for the D Production Class races of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). It’s one of only two cars of its kind ever built. Porsche gave the two cars to racers Doc Bundy and Tom Brennan. This one belonged to Brennan, and it has a rich history.

The Porsche raced smoothly until 1980, when it was involved in a serious accident at Road Atlanta. The car was badly damaged and took two years of repair before it could make a return. The restoration work was well done, as the car reentered the SCCA in 1982 and managed to win some races.

The Porsche changed to SCCA GT3 specs after the D Production Class ended. It continued its career until the 2000s in this class.

The car looks good for its age and history. It carries a modified 1,986cc inline 4-cylinder engine with Weber carburetors and a manual 5-speed transmission.

The Porsche has a special suspension, Bremtec and Wilwood brakes, and a fuel cell under the body. It rides on BBS wheels.

Black color dominates the exterior along with racing stripes. The interior, meanwhile, looks white and very simple for a race car. There are bars for protection, one seat, and a special belt system, among other things.

The Porsche is both rare and famous. It will be up for sale next week at a Mecum auction in Monterey, California, accompanied by some of its racing trophies and logbooks from the past.

The owner wants $200,000 for this amazing piece of racing history. And that price could go up as the car gets older but not outdated.
