Many kids had toy trucks in their childhood, which hauled our beloved favorite Matchbox or Hotwheels cars along. Sadly, most of us weren’t able to collect these toys on a 1:1 scale. However, Alexander Serda, an Austria-based architect, fulfilled that dream. He gathered the staggering Toys for Boys Collection, which contains all Porsche 991.2 GT3 models, from road to track car, plus a 911 R. All of it with the fitting MAN TGX truck to take your loved belongings with you. RPM Technik now proudly offers this breathtaking collection for sale.
As Greig Daly from RPM Technik recalls, the goal was to create “the ultimate collection of naturally aspirated 991 GT Porsches”. Alexander Serda, a successful architect, mainly designing luxury real estate, curated the collection. “I have this toy. This wooden truck, a racing truck from Porsche. I just had the idea to make this as a grown up toy”, the architect recalled the dream, he turned into reality.
Originally he wanted to show the cars at Goodwood in 2018, but the collection wasn’t complete yet, as one car hadn’t been delivered in time. Afterwards, Serda completed the Toys for Boys collection but didn’t have an opportunity to show it. The cars therefore sat in storage for the last five years. All of them were parked on tire cushions and had CTEK chargers connected, while staying in a cozy 22°C warm unit.
This amazing, complete set of second-gen 991 GT3-Porsches is now looking for a new home. On the back of the “race truck” you’ll find a Porsche 991.2 GT3 Clubsport, GT3 Touring, GT3 RS, GT3 Cup, GT3 R and as the cherry on the icing a 991.1 based 911 R. This is And the best thing about them: All are virtually brand new. They may have been registered for a day and immediately de-registered (German: Tageszulassung), but none of them was actually driven on the road.
This is probably the most unique sale we’ve been asked to handle in two decades.Greig Daly, RPM Technik
Their odometers show between 16 and 45 kilometers – delivery mileage. Same applies to the race cars. Neither Porsche 991.2 GT3 Cup, nor GT3 R have any operating hours on their counters. It is completely unreal to see all these cars in the flesh. Let’s have a look into all the details of these naturally aspirated Porsche GT masterpieces.
Disclaimer: This collection is being sold as single unit, the cars are not being sold separately.
To start things off, we have a look at a Guards Red Porsche 991.2 GT3 with 42 kilometers on the clock and the sought-after Clubsport pack. Putting aside the air conditioning, it’s probably the lightest spec Porsche 991.2 GT3 you could have ordered back in 2018. It comes with a manual gearbox, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) and no Porsche Communication Management System (PCM). Moreover, it features Porsche 918 carbon fiber bucket seats and the optional Sport Chrono pack.
Although the GT3 practiced the art of doing without, there was no skimping on the leather upholstery. Its extended leather spans over its wonderful bucket seats and the dashboard with the perfectly fitting red contrast stitching. It matches so well with its – of course – Guards Red seat belts and offers a very sporty feel on the inside. The otherwise Black Alcantara seat inserts also have red contrasts, with a wide and a thin red stripe to frame the GT3 lettering.
And lastly, to pay tribute to its racing pedigree, this 9.000 rpm screamer of a car is also equipped with a factory roll cage, as part of the Clubsport pack. Of course, this means Schroth racing harnesses to keep the driver in place even at the very highest of g-forces. Like his siblings, it just had a temporary registration to make it at least theoretically useable as a road car.
The oldest member in this exquisite family of naturally aspirated Porsches is also one of the most exclusive. Based on the 991.1 GT3 RS, Porsche created 991 wingless 500 hp lightweight 911s with a manual gearbox in 2016 and called them Porsche 911 R.
It is equipped with PCCB, carbon fiber wing mirrors, PCM sat-nav, Bose speakers and extended leather. With its carbon fiber bonnet and magnesium roof, accompanied by the six-speed manual gearbox, lightweight clutch and flywheel it stands for raw driving pleasure like no other 991 before. The 918 bucket seats with Pepita inserts give it a very classy touch.
This mix of 911 GT3 RS ingredients and a sleek, discreet body style without obvious aerodynamic features was a first for water-cooled Porsche 911s. And its commercial success led Porsche to creating a completely new category of cars. To satisfy their customers lust after screaming naturally aspirated engines in a more sedate body style, Porsche came up with the 911 GT3 Touring and S/T afterwards.
This particular car is – again – in factory fresh condition, having travelled only 44 kilometers. There is even cellophane foil on top of the seats and steering wheel. As we’ve already seen at RM Sotheby’s White Collection auction, a Porsche 911 R with delivery mileage like this can be a seven-figure car.
Next on the list – or the truck – of the Toys for Boys collection is one of those aforementioned Porsche 991.2 GT3 Tourings. With the gloss black Touring’s odometer showing just 16 kilometers, it’s the low-mileage king of the bunch. Its equipment is sort of reminiscent of its godfather 911 R. They share a big part of options like PCCB, manual gearbox, extended leather 918 bucket seats and the PCM sat-nav with Bose speakers.
In contrast to the red GT3 , it has the leather steering wheel and shifter, which both came as standard with the Touring. It therefore not only looks more discreet on the outside, but in the interior as well. Think of it as a nice blend between the Porsche 991.2 GT3 and the 911 R. But while the 911 R is restricted to 8,500 rpm, the GT3 Touring lets you enjoy the full 9,000 rpm experience. This probably is the Toys for Boys collection’s sleeper.
It is the most hardcore road car of the Toys for Boys collection: The Porsche 991.2 GT3 RS. This Racing Yellow Rennsport-Porsche features a huge rear wing and air intakes all over the place. Equipped with the Weissach pack, it also went through a strict diet. It wears Magnesium wheels, a carbon hood and even a carbon fiber roof. Of course, it proudly shows the Weissach badge on the headrests.
But there’s more. This 991.2 GT3 RS is also equipped with the Clubsport pack. That means a titanium roll cage, six-point harnesses and a fire extinguisher. Like the Guards Red GT3, it has to do without a stereo, as the sat-nav delete was ordered. This car is as close to a race car, you can get in a road legal car. It shows its seriousness with its carbon fiber interior trim as well. This LED-eyed beauty bridges the gap between the road cars and the race cars of the collection.
Now we’re moving to one of the most unusual sights in the Porsche universe. This Carrera White Porsche 991.2 GT3 Cup is probably the only privately owned Cup car, that has never been used. It probably wasn’t easy to get one of those, with no intention of racing it at all. This even still wears the factory taping over its NACA ducts! All the protectional wrap around the safety cell is still intact. This thing has never been driven, and it shows.
As all Porsche 911 GT3 Cup of the 991.2 generation, it comes with fully adjustable suspension, a six-speed sequential gearbox and even air jacks for quick pit stops. On the inside, everything screams “race car”. Behind the quick-release steering wheel sits a proper racing dash instead of your regular 991 gauge cluster. The center console is – like the button plate on the wheel – made from a single piece of carbon fiber. It inherits the bare essentials you’ll need for racing. Just the way, the series was intended, as these cars don’t even have traction control. So better be careful with your right foot, as you have 485 horses at your disposal.
To top things off and complete the whole set, architect Serda got his hands on a Porsche 991.2 GT3R. This is a proper, FIA-homologated GT3 race car. You could have entered world championship races with this thing! Everything you see from the outside is carbon fiber, except for the body-pillars and the door-handles.
From the its huge splitter and flaps on the front bumper to the impressively huge rear wing, this car uses every aerodynamic trickery Weissach’s engineering team could think of. In generated a lot of downforce to help it gaining laptime. They replaced the front boot area with a center cooler and huge air vents. Behind that, you’ll find the fuel cell with its centrally mounted filler cap. If you considered the GT3 RS’ air vents on the front quarter panels mad, have a look at the GT3R’s! With this car, you could have thought for victories in GT racing all over the world back in the day.
It is very interesting, to see this sort of car without its final livery. Usually, these are used as tools and not as show-cars. Therefore it’s pretty unique, that a private person with no intention of racing it got his hands on one. Unlike its road-legal counterparts, every single part is there for a reason. On a race car, you don’t care about different kinds of weave on the carbon fiber panels. Oh, and by the way, all these panels are “clip off” parts. That way, they can be replaced within seconds, if the car made a bit of contact with opponents during hectic racing.
Its interior is kind of similar to the GT3 Cup, but features almost double the amount of buttons. Whereas the Cup cars only have ABS, the GT3R features adjustable traction control, race-ABS with adjustable brake bias, as well as a total of ten different fuel maps to choose from. This is no Toy for Boys, this is a very serious bit of kit. The price for this factory race car in 2018? An eye-watering 500,000 euros…
To make the Toys for Boys collection complete, you’ll get yourself a fitting MAN TGX 18.640 with a Rolfo Auriga semi-trailer to haul your exquisit 911 collection. For the adventurous collectors, this is the opportunity to pick your new toys up yourself, as the collection is only sold as a whole package. Providing you have got the right driving license allowing you to drive this articulated lorry.
Sadly though, the cars probably won’t be seen on the road. Even though we love to see these kinds of cars in the wild, this collection of virtually brand new cars would be a great exhibit for an automotive museum. But the sheer value points more to private collectors. It isn’t easy to put a price tag on this lot. But the cars alone are probably worth medium seven-figure-sum. Factoring in the well-equipped truck with the Semi-Trailer you’ll have to add another couple of hundreds of thousands.
The collection comprises of the ultimate GT3s which are all unused, delivery mileage, single owner and have had services completed.Greig Daly, RPM Technik
But in the end, it doesn’t matter. Being able to document, that such a collection even exists, is a big privilege. As usually, these kind of collections stay off-market. So let’s take a deep breath and just enjoy the sight of six incredible cars, carried on a single lorry, fulfilling its owner’s dream of a 1:1 scale Toy for Boys.
What a sight to behold. In all honesty, we’ve never seen anything like this before.
