Legendary movie star Steve McQueen was (and still is) as famous for his association with classic cars as for his acting prowess. So when a car actually owned by the late actor goes up for auction, it’s a big deal, and even more so when it was the last ever vehicle special-ordered by him – which is the case with Steve McQueen’s 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera.
He died in 1980, and Steve McQueen’s 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera was his very last special-order car, with most of the details from when it was his intact. The coolest one is probably a switch installed by McQueen himself that could kill the car’s rear lights in the event of a nighttime chase when invisibility might be desirable – whether he did this for practical reasons or because he knew it would be cool is unknown.
Now, Steve McQueen’s 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera is going up for auction by Mecum Auctions in August, but you can check out its listing and the listings of other vehicles on the block for the Monterey 2015 car auction here.
