We’re entering the homestretch in the run-up to Gooding & Company‘s sale of the phenomenal Drendel Family Collection of 18 rare Porsche road and race cars in Amelia Island on March 9.

So without further ado, polish up your paddles for this devastatingly beautiful 1974 Carrera RSR Turbo 2.14, which marked a turning point in the history of competition Porsches when it introduced the use of turbocharged engines in production-based race cars.

Used by the factory for development, this handbuilt experimental 911 was campaigned as a Martini & Rossi Porsche Works entry in the 1974 season at Nürburgring, Imola and Zeltweg.

Few racing cars of this caliber have remained so correct and untouched, making it an extremely important piece of Porsche history, with an estimate to match of up to $2.25 million.

Good thing you’ve always been such a dab hand at coordinating…
