With respect to model variants, the Carrera 3.2, produced between 1984 and 1989, was the biggest seller this year at $8.1m in gross sales. The 930 Turbo 3.3 saw a decline in total sales, but average prices continued to climb. But clearly, 2020 was the year of the 991 Speedster. A limited production model made for 2019 only, many believe this to be an instant classic.

With respect to Porsche 911 generations, the 991, produced between 2012 to 2019, took the lead with $23.2 million in sales across 159 transactions. While this is partly a result of the enthusiasm for the 991 Speedster, it also underscores the success that online auctions such as Bring A Trailer and PCARMarket are having with newer car sales. That said, the 996 generation saw 334 transactions and the 997 generation had 244, far larger markets in terms of the number of transactions, albeit at lower average selling prices. Keep in mind that production numbers vary greatly across generations.

Although the average sale for all variants came in at $73,097, the top 5 sales this year were fairly strong even without the blockbuster sales that are typical of physical auction events that were cancelled or moved online this year. A 1976 Porsche 934 race car, sold by Gooding & Co., took the pole position at $1.38m
