An auction conducted by RM Sotheby’s, a classic car auction company, turned out to be of historical importance as the last unit of the 991 Porsche 911 has been sold.

The said money goes for a good cause though as it will be donated to United Way Worldwide’s fund for aiding patients in the United States as part of the recovery phase in the communities. To extend the hands of support, Porsche’s North American division has also revealed to match the winning bid.
