Once again, Scottsdale has kicked off the collector car season, and as always the auctions hold plenty of surprises at both the top of the market and the bottom.

We invite you to join Porsche Classic’s Ray Shaffer who will moderate a panel discussion about how Porsches fared in the Barrett-Jackson, Bonhams, Gooding, Russo and Steele, RM Sotheby’s, and Worldwide Auctioneers, Scottsdale auctions.

The panelists include Porsche Panorama editor Rob Sass, Porsche collector, historian and dealer, Nathan Merz, and the Hagerty valuation expert, Brian Rabold.

The discussion will be fast-moving, authoritative and, fun.
