The Porsche 964 Turbo from Bad Boys sold for $1.3m
Star power adds a substantial premium
Director sells Turbo for $60K, later auctioned for $1.3M
Amazingly, Bad Boys director Michael Bay was involved in a bombshell not of his own making, following the sale of a car the filmmaker once owned. That car being the gorgeous Porsche 964 Turbo you see here.
Taking to Instagram following the sale, the explosion aficionado remarked: “Can you f-ing believe my personal Porsche I put in Bad Boys 1 – I sold for 60k to a friend – today just sold at a car auction for $1,300,000!”
That’s right. The car once owned by Michael Bay, and actually driven by Will Smith in 1995’s Bad Boys recently sold at Mecum Auctions’ Kissimmee sale for a whopping sum of money. “Boy was I stupid not to keep it!” Bay remarked. “I gave my friend a deal because I liked him. But he sold it for 45k.”
Still, $1.3m for an old Porsche is quite something. Bay’s old car was one of fewer than 350 964 Turbos built for the US, and featured a 3.6-litre flat-six engine out back, and a five-speed manual gearbox in the middle. It’s only covered 34,396 miles too, so is basically new.
